Access to the site :
Access to the LNCMI is possible on working days (Monday to Friday) between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. An automatic gate controls access outside this period. The gate can be opened using a personal badge provided to the visitor upon his arrival.
Access to the high field installations :
The high magnetic field installations of the LNCMI-G are accessible from 1st March to 30th November continuously. The resistive magnets are typically scheduled as follows :
Monday : 1.00 p.m. – 5.00 a.m. (16 hours)
Tuesday – Friday : 9.00 a.m. – 5.00 a.m. (20 hours)
Weekend : 9.00 a.m. – 8.00 p.m. (11 hours)
This time is usually divided in three user slots ; we are doing our best to fit the slots as well as possible to the needs of all experiments.
The superconducting magnets can be used all throughout the year ; the scheduling must be fixed in agreement with your local contact.
Working hours of the lab :
On working days (Monday to Friday)
Working hours vary from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Opening hours of the Users office are from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
Outside these hours, from 1st March to 30th November and during operation of the resistive magnets, operators are present on the site from 6.00 p.m. to 5.00 a.m. (Monday to Friday) and from 9.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. (Weekend).
Lunch time :
CNRS laboratories have access to a canteen "H2" which is located a few steps from the LNCMI-G. When you arrive, you will receive a "canteen card" on which you can put money at the central office in the canteen, in cash or by credit card.
Meals are served in the canteen between 11.15 a.m. and 1.30 p.m. on working days. A take away counter offers also a variety of sandwiches, salads, fruits and snacks. Average price of a meal for external users is between 8 and 10 €.
During your visit you may wish to connect your laptop to the LNCMI network.
You are allowed to do so, provided that your computer has an up-to-date anti-virus program which has recently scanned your computer. If you require any help, please get in touch with our IT service.
Please note that Wi-Fi is also available inside the cafeteria of the lab and in the meeting rooms. Please ask at the Users office for the password.
