Be part of the mission to create the world's most intense laser system and offer unique sources of radiation and particle beams

Company Information

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

About us
The main mission of ELI Beamlines is to provide a user-oriented infrastructure for performing revolutionary scientific experiments across many different disciplines. It combines advanced synchronized ultra-intense short-pulse lasers with secondary sources of particles and X-rays.

The ELI Beamlines facility provides research opportunities at a number of world-class secondary sources, each one driven by ultra-intense lasers. These secondary sources, partially based on entirely new concepts, produces pulses of radiation and particles of the highest intensity and beam quality, including electromagnetic radiation over a broad spectral range and charged particles such as electrons, protons and ions. These will enable a wealth of novel applications.

Since its very beginning, ELI Beamlines has been closely connected with various scientific institutions around the world.

This scientific exchange had risen since ELI started to work as a user facility. And beyond its scientific co-operation, ELI Beamlines will promote aggressive technology transfer.
