Welcome to ELI Beamlines

The ELI Beamlines research center aspires to install and run the world's most intense laser system. With ultra-high peak powers of 10 PW (petawatt) and focused intensities up to 1024 W/cm2 we offer unique sources of radiation and particle beams to our users. These beamlines enable groundbreaking research not only in the fields of physics and material science, but also in biomedical research and laboratory astrophysics.
 
ELI Beamlines is part of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project, a new Research Infrastructure of pan-European interest and part of the European Strategy Forum on Research (ESFRI) Roadmap . ELI is a multi-sited Research Infrastructure with complementary facilities located in the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Romania for the investigation of light-matter interactions at the highest intensities and shortest time scales. Laser intensities are more than six orders of magnitude higher than today's state of the art.
ELI Beamlines is located in Dolní Břežany on the outskirts of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. It is managed by the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
