E1: Material and Biomolecular Applications

Experimental hall E1 will house laser-driven secondary sources and experimental end-stations for applications in molecular, bio-medical, and materials sciences. Experiments in the E1 hall will exploit synchronized laser beams and photon beams in the VUV and hard X-ray range.

E2: X-Ray Sources

The E2 hall is dedicated to the production of hard X-ray ultrafast beams for applications in phase contrast imaging and warm dense matter.

E3: Plasma Physics Platform

The plasma physics platform located in the experimental hall E3 is a multi-functional experimental infrastructure designed to perform laser-plasma and laser-matter interaction research predominantly on the following topics:

  • High energy density physics (HEDP)
  • Warm dense matter (WDM)
  • Plasma optics (PO)
  • Laboratory astrophysics (LA)
  • Ultra-high intensity interaction (UHI).

E4: Ion Acceleration

The E4 experimental hall is located in the basement of the ELI-Beamlines building and is dedicated to user experiments that involve ion acceleration. The ELI Multidisciplinary Applications of laser-Ion Acceleration (ELIMAIA) beamline is located in E4.

E5: Electron Accelaration & Laser Undulator X-ray Source

The E5 experimental hall is located in the basement of the ELI-Beamlines building and will be dedicated to electron acceleration and to X-ray user experiments. The High-energy Electron by Laser Light (HELL) experimental platform and the Laser Undulator X-rays (LUX) beam lines are located in E5.
