LaserNetUS First Call for Proposals
Due March 18, 2019
Proposals for access to the LaserNetUS facilities will be accepted via a web-based proposal system until 4:00 p.m. PST Monday, March 18, 2019.
This call is for experiments to run between June and December 2019. 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 from U.S. institutions to lead experiments on the facilities. Today, we are pleased to announce LaserNetUS’s first External User experimental time (“Run 1”) in mid 2019.
Please note the following important information:
A Virtual LaserNetUS Meeting will be held at 8:30 am PST on Friday, February 15, 2019
A webcast meeting will be held to better inform the users about the capabilities offered by each of the member labs before the upcoming LaserNetUS proposal deadline on March 18th. 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.
