","answer":"Once proposals are selected for time, there will be modest funding available for travel, and possibly targets, for PIs and their team to execute the experiment. The request needs to be submitted to FES program manager for consideration: kramer.akli@science.doe.gov. "},"0":{"question":"Can you please give some info on the review panel for experimental evaluation? ","answer":"FES has paid for time on each of the facilities and is directly recruiting the peer review panel (PRP) for this first call. The PRP will be independent of the member facilities and will judge proposals based on scientific merit, recommending which proposals will be allocated time. The PRP review will be followed by a facility feasibility and sorting review of the recommended experiments. Facilities have input only on feasibility. "},"2":{"question":"Am I specifically asking for a facility or is a suitable facility assigned to me? For example, I want a high rep rate laser and there are several in the net.","answer":"The proposal form asks users to select a first and (optionally) a second choice for laser facility. This selection will not affect PRP decisions. By default the first choice would be assigned unless there are scheduling or feasibility issues, in which case the experiment may be given to the second-choice facility, or a third facility deemed to be suitable based on the experimental requirements. This sorting will be done during the feasibility stage. Proposals \r\nshould clearly state the laser parameters needed and especially why a given facility is most preferable."},"8":{"question":"It's common for the facility laser parameters (energy, contrast, etc.) to fluctuate over time due to upgrades or (more commonly) maintenance woes, such that values reported in presentations and online are often ","answer":"\u200bWe will continue to discuss the best ways to consistently and clearly represent the up-to-date laser performance at each facility. We are not yet at a point where we can enforce regular updates from each of the facilities, but will look for ways to move towards this ideal. In posting their nominal performance numbers on the website, facilities were encouraged to represent numbers that they were comfortable achieving."},"3":{"question":"If I have been planning an experiment at specific facilities does LaserNetUS negate them? ","answer":"\u200bNo. LaserNetUS sets aside designated time at each facility and has no control over what facilities do with the remainder of their time.

  • Once proposals are selected for time, there will be modest funding available for travel, and possibly targets, for PIs and their team to execute the experiment. The request needs to be submitted to FES program manager for consideration: kramer.akli@science.doe.gov.

  • FES has paid for time on each of the facilities and is directly recruiting the peer review panel (PRP) for this first call. The PRP will be independent of the member facilities and will judge proposals based on scientific merit, recommending which proposals will be allocated time. The PRP review will be followed by a facility feasibility and sorting review of the recommended experiments. Facilities have input only on feasibility.

  • The proposal form asks users to select a first and (optionally) a second choice for laser facility. This selection will not affect PRP decisions. By default the first choice would be assigned unless there are scheduling or feasibility issues, in which case the experiment may be given to the second-choice facility, or a third facility deemed to be suitable based on the experimental requirements. This sorting will be done during the feasibility stage. Proposals should clearly state the laser parameters needed and especially why a given facility is most preferable.

  • ​We will continue to discuss the best ways to consistently and clearly represent the up-to-date laser performance at each facility. We are not yet at a point where we can enforce regular updates from each of the facilities, but will look for ways to move towards this ideal.

  • ​No. LaserNetUS sets aside designated time at each facility and has no control over what facilities do with the remainder of their time.

  • From the website, “​LaserNet US intends to be open to international users. However, during the first year of operation, LaserNet US applications will be restricted to PIs from US institutions. International collaborators are welcomed.

  • Yes. Scientists from LaserNetUS home institutions are not excluded.

  • The decision process will be one month long with the announcements coming by May 2019. Scheduling will be coordinated between the awarded experimental team and the assigned facility.
