ELI Beamlines is a part of the European ELI project , the world’s first international laser facility. It will be open to access for an international and inter-disciplinary user community from academia and industry. Mandated by the international scientific laser community and implemented in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania, the ELI project will drive international laser research and laser-based applications to new frontiers, and will fulfill important missions for the regional socio-economic development.

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.
ELI Beamlines is a laser research facility where an international team currently installs the world’s most intense laser systems.

The main mission of ELI Beamlines facility is to become a truly multidisciplinary, user-oriented infrastructure to perform revolutionary scientific experiments and applications in different areas including physics and astrophysics, chemistry, biology, material science, medicine etc. combining advanced synchronized ultra-intense short pulse lasers and secondary sources of particles and x-rays.

ELI Beamlines facility will provide research opportunities at a large portfolio of world-class secondary sources, driven by ultra-intense lasers. These secondary sources, partially based on entirely new concepts, will produce pulses of radiation and particles of highest intensity and beam quality, including electromagnetic radiation over a broad spectral range and charged particles like electrons, protons and ions. A wealth of novel applications is foreseen.

Since its very beginning, ELI Beamlines has been closely connected with various scientific institutions around the world. This scientific exchange will be even intensfied when ELI starts to work as a user facility. And beyond its scientific cooperations, ELI Beamlines will promote aggressive technology transfer.
