Thank all of you for an inspiring workshop!

Dear colleagues,

The organizing committee would like to thank all of you for an inspiring workshop!

The HHG and MAC workshop brought together Czech and international research groups actively working in the field of Photon science and related techniques. The workshop provided a strong platform to discuss current achievements and trends in high harmonic generation, recent developments of sample delivery systems and state-of-the-art experiments with coherent XUV sources as well as with electron beams.  The organizers appreciate a valuable contribution of all participants that will help us in the development and operation of the ELI Beamlines user facility.

We are looking forward to fruitful collaborations and first successful user experiments!

Hope to welcome you at ELI Beamlines again.

Welcome to ELI Beamlines

Dear colleagues,

The ELI Beamlines facility is a high-energy, high repetition rate laser pillar of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) project. The facility will provide pulses from four high-end laser systems. One of the advanced ELI-Beamlines lasers is the L1 Allegra laser that is under the in-house development. L1 Allegra laser is designed to generate <20 fs pulses with energy exceeding 100 mJ per pulse at a 1 kHz repetition rate. The radiation from the L1 Allegra laser is guided to the E1 experimental area to serve user end-stations as well as to drive secondary sources of coherent radiation from the THz to XUV spectral region.

The first workshop for collaborators and potential users is jointly organized between the HHG and MAC research teams. The HHG-team is working on the development of intense coherent XUV sources through the High Harmonic Generation (HHG) process. The MAC research team is developing the multi-purpose user end-station for experiments in atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) sciences and coherent diffractive imaging (CDI). The workshop is aiming on bringing together theoretical and experimental research groups working on the development and applications of advanced XUV light sources. The scope of the workshop is to discuss recent achievements and perspectives in photon science and to build the user community around ELI_HHG & MAC experimental teams.


Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention that ELI Beamlines has launched a call for the
