LCVU Access Facilities

European scientists are invited to submit proposals for using the Access Facilities of LCVU, via the webinterface of Laserlab-Europe ( It is helpful if those interested first contact the local scientists at LCVU to discuss the opportunities, possibilities and limitations of the equipment. Below the access facilities are described and local contact persons indicated.
