The HIFI (High Field Initiative) project

The HIFI (High Field Initiative) project

The HIFI (High Field Initiative) project will be a theoretical support and technological upgrade of the most intense laser in the world, the 10 PW laser at ELI Beamlines, for the preparation of worldwide unique high-field flagship experiments.

The theory program will explore a fundamentally new regime of laser matter interaction and give a solid theoretical base which will lead to realization of completely new high field experiments. The project manager will be Prof. Sergey Bulanov, a researcher at JAEA (Japan Atomic Energy Agency) in Japan and a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The latest date of completion of physical implementation of the projects is October 31st, 2022. The allocation  for all supported projects of this Call is 2,500,000,000 CZK and each of our two projects will be funded by a total amount of aprox. 250 mil. CZK.
