Survey on research in the pandemic

The KFS wants to represent the interests of synchrotron radiation usersĀ also in the pandemic. The measures to contain the coronavirus are necessary, but they also limit research. We would like to get an impression of your problems so that we can look for solutions together with the facilities and funding bodies.

The red boxes mark questions that need to be answered.

1. To which group of people do you count yourself?  

3. If you lead a working group, how strong do you estimate the restrictions for your employees when using synchrotron radiation? Please skip this question if you do not lead a working group - thank you! (1 = not at all, 10 = strongly)?
4. What aspects of your research and projects are limited by the pandemic? This is in respect to all your research - not only with synchrotron radiation (1 = not at all, 10 = strongly)
Please answer the following four questions only if they apply to you:
5. Which aspects of your research with synchrotron radiation are limited by the pandemic? (1 = not at all, 10 = strongly)
6. Which measures would currently help you with measurements at the synchrotron? (1 = not at all, 10 = strongly)
7. Do you also see opportunities through the changed working conditions? If so, in which areas? (1 = not at all, 10 = strongly)

Please also encourage colleagues and staff to participate in this survey! The KFS will evaluate the results of the anonymous survey and discuss them with representatives of synchrotron radiation sources, funding organisations and others. Please feel free to contact us at
