The Central Laser Facility, based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, is home of two advanced high-power laser systems: Vulcan and Gemini. Since its inception, the CLF has continually produced world-leading research in a wide range of scientific disciplines.

We would like to invite applications for the new CLF Training Weeks, beginning in September 2023. These 2-week courses are designed to provide new PhD students with the necessary skills to participate in high-power laser experiments both here at the CLF, and at other facilities around the world. The training will be specifically tailored towards users of high rep-rate laser systems such as Gemini and EPAC, with a particular focus on management and analysis of large datasets. However, it will also cover skills relevant to any laser laboratory: optical alignment techniques, laser and plasma diagnostics, experimental set-up, and general safety.

The Training Weeks are co-organised by Laserlab-Europe and EURIZON. All applications are welcome. Applications from scientists in Ukraine are encouraged. Travel and subsistence will be covered by the CLF. Dates for the Training Weeks courses are 4th – 29th September 2023 (starting 4th and 18th September).

Applications should be submitted via the online contact form. The deadline for applications is 3rd July 2023.

Any enquiries should be directed to Chris Baird.
