Experimental Physics Technician – Job Ref 77

First Light Fusion is an inertial fusion research company located in Oxford. We use a variety of optical diagnostics to monitor target and launcher performance. These include measurements of light energy, projectile velocity and electrical current in our high voltage launcher, as well as ultra-high speed imaging of our targets.

Our suite of experimental diagnostics has now been centralised and can be run on any of our 2 pulsed power facilities or 2 stage light gas guns. You will assist in the operation, maintenance and development of these capabilities.

We believe this is an exciting and varied role as you will interact with all the experiments taking place at First Light using a broad range of advanced diagnostics in a fast paced environment. While being a specialist, you will also interact with other teams to understand future requirements.
