High Power Laser Science and Engineering


Applications are now invited for access to the Artemis laser facility at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) (Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), during the period December 2023 - June 2024. A total of fourteen weeks' access is available on the facility. We are offering access to both the 1-kHz and 100-kHz laser systems.


The fourteen weeks available include up to four weeks funded by Laserlab-Europe. The remaining weeks will be funded by STFC. Laserlab-Europe funding requires that the principal investigator and the majority of other investigators be located outside the UK. STFC funding, by contrast, applies to proposals in which at least one co-investigator is a permanent member of staff at a UK academic institution.


Applications will be reviewed and prioritised by the Artemis Facility Access Panel. The deadline for applications is 12th July 2023, at 17:00 British Summer Time. Please talk to facility staff before you submit your proposal, to ensure that it is feasible.


​How to apply:


Please apply through the online proposal system at https://proposal.isis.rl.ac.uk. You will need to upload a three-page science case.


If you are based outside the UK and applying through Laserlab-Europe, first apply through our online proposal system (https://proposal.isis.rl.ac.uk). Download a pdf copy of your application and submit this through the Laserlab proposal system at https://apply.laserlab-europe.eu/.
