The Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) User Program is open to all qualified applicants; US and non-US PIs are welcome to submit proposals. Using technical evaluations from experts both in and outside LLNL, proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the JLF advisory committee based on scientific and/or programmatic quality, impact, and feasibility. Typically, platforms are over-requested by a factor of two or more.
The CY2018 period is January through December 2018. Due to enhanced maintenance, JLF will be likely be closed until May 2018; the schedule is still uncertain. Experiment time will be allotted in four-week experimental run periods, with one-week maintenance breaks between experiments. The schedule will be determined after proposals have been selected.
The call for CY2018 proposal submissions is here.
