ELI Summer School 2020

26-28 August 2020

Virtual Summer School to be Run by ELI-ALPS Laser Research Institute

Everything is different in 2020, but the fifth ELI Summer School (ELISS) must go ahead. This year the event, alternatingly hosted by the individual pillars of ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure), is again organized by ELI-ALPS (Attosecond Light Pulse Source ). Unfortunately, this time we are unable to meet participants in person, and the programmes will be held in the virtual space
on 26-28 August 2020.

The main objective of ELISS is to provide young researchers with a comprehensive overview of intense laser pulses and laser-driven particle and radiation sources.

Programmes:
Virtual laboratory tour
Poster section
Lectures

Topics covered:
High-power ultrashort lasers
Particle acceleration and applications
Plasma Physics
Generation and application of attosecond
pulses
XUV and X-ray optics
ELI user experiments
Generation and applications of intense THz
radiation
Generation and amplification of ultrashort laser pulse
Generation of bright coherent and incoherent X-ray pulses using short-pulse lasers

Confirmed Lecturers:
Anne L’ Huillier (Lund University, Sweden)
Martin Aeschlimann (TU Kaiserslautern, Germany)
Louis DiMauro (Ohio State University, USA)
Sambhu Ghimire (Stanford University)
Fabien Quéré (CEA Paris-Saclay, France)
Hans-Jakob Wörner (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
Laszlo Veisz (Umea University, Sweden)
Chris Phillips (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
Robert Moshammer (Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany)
Christian Ott (Heidelberg University, Germany)

The online event is free to attend but registration is required. The registration platform will be
available at ELI Alps websites from 28 July 2020.
