Previous call for access, closed Dec 2022:

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 April - September 2023. 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’ access available includes up to eight weeks' access 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 requires that proposals have at least one co-investigator who is a permanent member of staff at a UK academic institution.
