ELI Beamlines is a part of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) pan-European project representing a unique support tool of scientific excellence in Europe. ELI Beamlines aims to operate the world's most intense laser system and when fully operational it will provide four laser systems of various parameters (e.g., high peak powers of 1-10 PW at enhanced repetition rates and focused intensities up above 1021 W/cm2 with the aim to reach over 1023 W/cm2 at the later stage). Using these and also lower power lasers, a number of experimental stations and beamlines are constructed to offer new research capabilities with and on secondary sources of radiation and accelerated particles for international users. This will enable pioneering research not only in the fields of fundamental physics and material science, but also in biomedicine and laboratory astrophysics and other application with high socioeconomic impact.
The second ELI Beamlines User Conference would like to welcome users and provide the updated information about the current status and offered technologies including presentations of individual experimental stations.
Attendees will gain practical information concerning the center operation itself together with provided and planned services.
The conference will be held on October 20 - 21, 2021 and it will enable both online and personal attendance in Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic.
Similarly to the previous event, the scientific program will be divided into a joint section for all users and into panels focused on specific research topics; the final schedule will be published during September 2021.
We are pleased with everything that has been achieved so far, and we accept other challenges that await us in the following years.
The ELI Beamlines center is looking forward to new discoveries together with its users!
