  • There is no requirement to hold a current grant. 
Applications will be reviewed, by members of STFC’s existing Panels, on scientific merit and benefit to the applicant’s research programme.

Applicants should provide a scientific case which addresses the following points:

  • the scientific aims and relevance that the laser would have on the applicant’s research programme • the ability to support the laser system in the coming years 
  • the provision of suitable laboratories to accommodate the laser system. 

Each scientific case must:

  • have an additional cover sheet stating PI name, contact details, and system(s) applied for 
  • have a filename PI surname_institute_loanretirement2015 (eg clark_stfc_ loanretirement2015).
