NOTE: One rating is chosen in each area; the overall score is calculated based on a weighted average of scores.
The scores of unallocated proposals are "aged" or improved at each cycle as part of the allocation process. If a proposal was not allocated time in the previous cycle, its score is improved by 0.2. This is done a maximum of two times, for a maximum improvment of 0.4.
* Viability is based on pure, intrinsic limitations of the proposed technique (not the capability of the beamline).
Technological impact can include impact to applied fields, industry, and/or industrial processes.
Societal impact can include education, training, and outreach activities.
