DCIF Reservations Page

Instrument Reservations

Reservations are made through the workstation ‘Cruella’, which can be accessed with the text-based Res1B program.

If you are using a Windows computer, you will need an SSH program to access the Res1B software. MIT IS&T provides one, called SecureCRT, to the MIT community. If you are using a Mac or Unix computer you do not need to download any additional software.

A single page instruction summary for accessing Cruella and reserving instrument time with Res1B (for all types of computers) is available here.

Remember that reservations are not needed during ‘walk-on time’. All the NMRs have some walk-on times, though the Varian 300 is our main walk-on instrument. The 300 has a 10 minute limit during the afternoon and a 30 minute time limit overnight. Please see the reservations software for a full listing of instrument walkon hours.
