Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory



The Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) User Program is open to all qualified applicants; US and non-US principal investigators are welcome to submit proposals. Using technical evaluations from experts both in and outside Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the JLF Proposal Review Committee based on scientific and/or programmatic quality, impact, and feasibility. Typically, platforms are over-requested by a factor of two or more.

The CY2019 shot period is June through November 2019. 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 CY2019 proposal submissions is now open. Additional information is available on the Call for Proposal Submissions page.
