*NUD, or Non University Differential assessment, refers to the facilities and administrative costs
of doing business incurred by the University to run and support the Crocker Nuclear Laboratory.

Crocker Nuclear Laboratory Terms and Conditons:

The minimum charge for a reservation is eight hours per energy tune, which includes one hour for tuning plus seven hours of beam time. After the minimum is met, charges accrue in hour increments.      
*The Corporate rate may vary annually as the NUD varies according to the UCD F&A Rate.  (See: http://www.budget.ucdavis.edu/rates/documents/fa-rate-table.pdf)
Cancellations within 10 business days of the first day of reserved use may be charged the full amount reserved.
Hours used that exceed 150 hours per UC fiscal year (starting July 1, 2015) will be charged 50% of the full rate.
When devices are sent to us for testing, cyclotron technician charges may be added to beam time charges. Some procedures may require up to three technicians.
Testing of devices brought to the lab may also incur technician charges.
