The CLF will once
again be holding its regular training weeks in May 2017. The two week course
(starting on Monday 8th May) is primarily aimed at early-stage PhD
students who are starting out in the field of High Power Laser experiments. The
course is tailored to meet the needs of the CLF’s Vulcan and Gemini High Power
Laser facilities, but is a good general introductory course. Some of the
activities that the course will cover include experimental set-up, optical
alignment techniques, laser and plasma diagnostics, vacuum and drive system
operation, target fabrication and general safety.
course is open to all, but priority will be given to first year PhD students,
and those who have not attended an experiment on the facilities before. Travel
and subsistence will be covered by the CLF. There are a limited number of
places so priority will be given to those expected to attend CLF experiments in
the near future (so please highlight when applying).
the Training Weeks course are 8th – 19th May
contact James Green (firstname.lastname@example.org)
by 24th March to apply
for the course.
