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.
