Szeged, Hungary

Visit Website

The main goal of ELISS 2018 is to provide young researchers a comprehensive overview on the field of the generation and application of intense lasers pulses. The lectures will devote large emphasis to the generation of secondary radiation sources extending from THz to the X-ray and Gamma-ray spectral, as well as to the generation and acceleration of particle beams.

Topics of the Summer School:

  • High-power ultrashort lasers
  • Generation and applications of intense THz radiation
  • Generation and amplification of ultra-short laser pulses
  • Generation of bright coherent and incoherent X-ray pulses using short pulse lasers
  • Ultrafast imaging techniques with short x-ray pulses
  • Particle acceleration and applications
  • Plasma Physics
  • Laser matter interaction at ultra-high intensities
  • Generation and application of attosecond pulses
  • Nuclear Physics with intense lasers
New opportunity: 
EUCALL provides Financial Support for up to 30 Young Researchers to attend the event. You can apply HERE.

Poster sessions:

During the poster sessions on 28 August and 30 August participants will have the chance to present their scientific work and have a discussion about it with the other participants and lecturers. The recommended size of the posters is A0 (841x1189mm).

ELI-ALPS, the Hungarian pillar of the Extreme Light Infrastructure, is dedicated to support fundamental and applied researches in physical, biological, chemical, medical and materials sciences at extreme short time scales. The ground-breaking laser systems together with the subsequent outstanding secondary sources generate the highest possible peak power at the highest possible repetition rate in a spectral range from the E-UV through visible and near infrared to THz. The facility – besides the regular scientific staff - will provide accessible research infrastructure for the international scientific community user groups from all around the world. The first laser systems was installed in Fall 2017, the beamlines are gradually become available by 2020.
