Proposals for access to the LaserNetUS facilities will be accepted via a web-based proposal system until 4:00 p.m. PST Friday, September 6, 2019.
This call is for experiments to be fielded between January and December 2020. Scheduling of the approved experiments will be subject to experiment feasibility and availability of each facility.
For full details of the call, please visit:
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 LaserNetUS’s second External User experimental time (“Cycle 2”) in CY 2020.
Please note the following important information:
A webcast meeting will be held July 29th to better inform the users about the capabilities offered by each of the member labs before the upcoming LaserNetUS proposal deadline on August 30th. 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.
