The ELIMAIA user beamline opening ceremony

The ELIMAIA ion acceleration user beamline with its key system, the ELIMED ion beam transport and dosimetry section, was ceremonially launched on 27th of November, 2018 in the ELI Beamlines research facility.

The mission of ELIMAIA (ELI Multidisciplinary Applications of laser-Ion Acceleration) is to provide stable, fully characterized and tunable beams of particles accelerated by multi-PW lasers and to offer them to the user community for multidisciplinary applications, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating a compact approach of laser-driven ion acceleration for application in cancer therapy.
