ELI Beamlines is a part of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) pan-European project representing a unique tool of support of scientific excellence in Europe. ELI Beamlines aims to operate the world's most intense laser system. With ultra-high power 10 PW and concentrated intensities of up to 1024 W/square cm, we offer our users a unique source of radiation and rays of accelerated particles. These beamlines enable pioneering research not only in physics and material science, but also in biomedicine and laboratory astrophysics and many other fields.Read More
The main goal of ELI is to build the most modern laser equipment in the world. It will carry out research and application projects involving the interaction of light with matter at an intensity that is about 10 times greater than currently achievable values.
ELI will deliver ultrashort laser pulses typically lasting several femtoseconds and produce up to 10 PW power. It will bring new knowledge potentially usable eg in medical imaging and diagnostics, construction of tools for development and testing of new materials or X-ray optics.Read More
