The picture shows the vacuum chamber P3 for laser-plasma interaction (LPI) experiments which will be installed in the experimental hall E3. It is one of the largest LPI chambers for civilian research, constructed by AVS and CADINOX companies.
The High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS), being developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), recently completed a significant milestone: demonstration of continuous operation of an all diode-pumped, high-energy femtosecond petawatt laser system.
On February 9th, 2017 a crucial milestone for the development of the ELIMED dosimetry section of the ELIMAIA beamline was achieved by the INFN-LNS team. ELIMED is the beam transport and dosimetry section of the ELI Multidisciplinary Applications for laser-Ion Acceleration (ELIMAIA) and represents a key technology for the entire ELI-Beamlines facility since it will enable users to perform pre-clinical research for future applications in cancer therapy, such as biological cell irradiation with short bunches of protons (not available at conventional facilities) accelerated by the HAPLS PW-class, 10 Hz laser.
The European Development Fund and the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has awarded cca. 250 million CZK to the ELIBIO project at the new ELI Beamlines laser facility of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The ELIBIO project explores new frontiers in light and optics to create breakthrough science in biology, chemistry, and physics. The project will bring world-leaders in photon science and structural biology to the Czech Republic.
ELI Beamlines is a European laser research facility where an international team currently installs the world’s most intense laser systems. Once completed, it will enable groundbreaking research not only in the fields of physics and material science, but also in biomedical research and laboratory astrophysics.READ MORE
