The Extreme Light Infrastructure ERIC


For valuable results and statistics, all experiments require well defined and reliable targets and here comes the role of the TargetLAB.

The main goals of the TargetLAB are fabrication, characterization, handling and assembly of various types of targets being investigated during experimental research campaigns within ELI Research Programs.

Dedicated personnel is responsible for high quality micro and nano fabrication together with delivering full characterization of the samples, especially key features like, topography, uniformity, structure, defects, homogeneity etc.

Available instrumentation in the area includes:

– Digital optical microscope with optical profilometer

– Glove box for manipulation in inert gas and low vacuum conditions

– Analytic weigh sensor with accuracy  +/- 1 microgram and stability below +/- 10 micrograms

– Tools for assembly
