ELI-ALPS is an ultrashort (fs-as) coherent light source facility that is part of the Extreme Light Infratructure (ELI). Cutting-edge primary laser sources can be used in conjunction with secondary sources to produce a wide range of coherent light (THz to X-rays) and ion (p+ and e-) beams and these can be used together to probe the fundamental processes that occur within biological, chemical and material samples, including ultrafast dynamics with Angstrom/attosecond spatio-temporal resolution and relativistic interactions.
ELI Beamlines, located southwest of Prague, Czech Republic, is one of three facilities forming the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI). The facility houses high-power high-repetition rate laser systems with femtosecond pulse duration for laser-plasma interaction studies and high energy density physics and for driving ultrafast sources of XUV/X-ray radiation and accelerated particles. The endstations attached to these sources are dedicated to user-oriented research on fast dynamics in molecular, biomedical and materials science.
ELI-Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP). has been established as an most advanced stage of both laser and gamma beams in the technology and science in order to deliver a highest laser (λ = 820 nm) intensity of 10^22-10^23 W/cm^2 with a 25 fs pulse. ELI-NP is intended to serve a broad national, European, and International science community.
Laserlab-Europe offers unique research opportunities to scientists and industry from all over Europe and to a limited extent also to scientists from outside Europe. Access is provided to world-class laser research facilities to a large variety of inter-disciplinary research, including life sciences free of charge, including travel and accommodation. Access is provided on the basis of scientific excellence of the proposal, reviewed by an external and independent Selection Panel.
