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 workshop provided a strong platform to discuss current achievements and trends in the field of laser-driven compact hard X-ray sources and applications in various fields of X-ray science. 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. One of the main goals within the ELI scientific community is to produce ultra-short X-ray beamlines, both coherent and incoherent ones, to pave the way toward imaging nature with atomic resolution in space as well as time using devices that are suitable for university labs. 

ELI User Workshop on Laser-Driven X-ray sources and Applications is a satellite workshop to the 3rd International Conference on Extreme Light 2019 (ICEL 2019) jointly organized by the teams developing secondary X-ray sources and X-ray end stations. The scope of the workshop encompasses such radiation sources as a plasma X-ray source (PXS) and Plasma Betatron sources as well as the techniques that employ radiation of the sources - X-ray diffractometry, scattering, spectroscopy, radiolysis and Warm Dense Matter studies . The workshop aims to bring together theoretical and experimental research groups working on the development and applications of advanced X-ray sources. The scope of the workshop is to discuss recent achievements and perspectives in high-energy science and to build the user community around ELI X-ray sources and stations.
