The main goal of ELI Beamlines is to operate the most advanced laser equipment in the world. This is achieved and implemented through research projects covering the interaction of light with matter at intensities that are 10 times higher than the values currently achievable. With ultra-short laser pulses that last only a few femtoseconds and outputs of up to 10 PW, ELI brings new techniques and tools for basic research as well as areas such as medical imaging and diagnostics, radiotherapy, new materials and X-ray optics.
