New SSRL/LCLS/FACET/AD User Research Portal launched

The User Portal Development Team has launched a visually redesigned, mobile-friendly version of the current SSRL/LCLS/FACET/AD User Portal.  This new portal interface is more responsive and adaptive across devices and platforms. One of the goals of our redesign was to offer an interface that aligns more closely to SLAC’s branding strategy and that makes it easier for our researchers and administrators to manage research in a modern context. Workflow improvements should make proposal management as well as beam time and support requests more intuitive and user-friendly. 

The new version of the User Portal is available for use by staff and researchers, who have user portal accounts, at (, and will soon be the supported interface for SSRL and LCLS users, replacing ( This is a production-grade release, so any work performed through the new interface will be treated the same as if you were to use the current system that is available.

We would appreciate your feedback, so please take a look when you get a chance and let us know what you think. (

We welcome your suggestions on how we can further improve our webpages and user portal. Your constructive comments will assist us in delivering the most value to you in a timely fashion. We look forward to providing more features in the near future and to improving your overall research experience at SLAC.
