Calls for access to the High Power Lasers
07 Feb 2019



The latest call for the Vulcan, Gemini and Orion laser facilities is now closed




​High Power Lasers call for access - Vulcan and Gemini

The call for access to the Vulcan TAW and TAP and Gemini TA2 and TA3 target areas for the period June – November 2020 is now closed.

All access in this round is funded by STFC, and therefore proposals must have at least one co-investigator who is a permanent member of staff at a UK academic institution.

All proposals should be submitted electronically at the following website by Friday, 4th October 2019 at 12pm (noon).

For access to the Vulcan and Gemini facilities of the CLF we require the completion of the CLF Technical Pack, which is used by the facility to provide us with sufficient detail to assess the implementation of the experiment if scheduled. This should be submitted to the website alongside your science case.
