LS-CAT Terms of Service
Use of the LS-CAT remote services is subject to the following conditions:
When logging in to LS-CAT remote services away from the beamline you
must use your own credentials. This process starts by being named on
the Experiment Safety Assessment Form (ESAF) for the experiment in
which you are participating. This is required regardless of your
status (local, remote, mail-in, observer, etc.).
Groups working at the beamline may log in using their group's ESAF
account on that beamline's control computer. This is the only
instance in which a single account may be shared.
You must be registered with the APS User office and have completed any
required training. A valid APS badge number is required. Note that
remote users do not need the APS badge itself, just the number, which
is obtainable after registering with the APS User Office.
All materials sent or brought to LS-CAT must be declared in the ESAF.
If you'd like to add something after the ESAF is submitted let your
staff contact know.
