In 2018, the DOE Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) established LaserNetUS, a consortium of high power laser facilities from institutions across the U.S., to foster high-intensity laser research. Its seed funding creates open-access opportunities for researchers to lead experiments on the facilities. Today, we are pleased to announce the LaserNetUS third external user experimental time (“Cycle 3”) in 2021.
Please note the following important information:
A webcast meeting will be held (update: was held, November 19) to better inform the users about the capabilities offered by each of the member labs before the upcoming LaserNetUS proposal deadline of December 11th. Representative staff will inform the community about the latest capabilities and be available for Q&A. Information on the detailed schedule and how to connect will be sent separately.
