The organisation

The Vulcan High Power Laser Facility is part of the Central Laser Facility situated at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK and is an ultra-high intensity laser interaction facility that provides a service to both National and International university-based research groups, allowing them to conduct experiments in the field of plasma physics. Vulcan has a high profile with both an International and World stage reputation and is, during the placement year, expected to continue developing towards a major upgrade from its existing 1 PetaWatt (1015 W) capability, to ultimately become capable of delivering 20 PetaWatt to target.

Summary of Key Duties

It is envisaged that over the year, time within this role will be shared between development projects and operating the laser or providing support to the laser programme.

Vulcan is already a sophisticated and complex system with many optical, mechanical and electronic sub systems and the successful candidate will be given responsibility for the development, testing and integration of additional components on the Vulcan laser system. The post holder will directly contribute to the development, testing and integration of laser beam diagnostics into the Vulcan laser system. This will include the implementation and development of computer
