You might be surprised at the ways STFC’s Central Laser Facility (CLF) has been used in air quality research: exploring aerosol optical properties and reaction dynamics, looking at nanoparticle transport from the environment to human organs, levitating single PM2.5 liquid and solid aerosol in controlled temperature and humidity environments, imaging uptake of metals in bacteria and studying the effect of pathogens on plant cells… with such a wide range of applications, it could be the research tool you never knew you needed.

Call for access now open

The current deadline for applications to use these facilities is 17:00, Tuesday 19 July 2022. Full details are on the CLF website.

On this page you can watch videos from our training session and download the relevant slides. If you have any questions or would like to discuss how the Central Laser Facility could be useful in your work, please contact us.
