The Extreme Light Infrastructure ELI: Europe on its way to build the world’s first international laser user facility

Date Mo, 02.03.2015 - Mo, 02.03.2015
Time 16.45
Speaker Prof. Wolfgang Sandner, Director General and CEO, ELI-DC International Association AISBL, Berlin, Germany
Location ETH Zurich, Hönggerberg Campus, HPF G6
Program Roughly five decades after invention of the laser the international scientific community has joined forces to build the world's most powerful lasers for scientific research, the "Extreme Light Infrastructure" ELI.

Technically, ELI's high-power lasers will push the present frontiers in power, intensity and repetition rate by at least a factor of ten. Scientifically, due to the highly non-linear nature of ultra-intense light matter-interactions, a wealth of new research opportunities arises, ranging from novel laser-plasma particle acceleration mechanisms, secondary radiation generation from THz to Gamma rays, ultra-short radiation pulses in the atto-second regime, and laser-based nuclear physics, up to first exploration of QED effects in ultra-intense laser fields and "breaking the vacuum”.
