ELI-ALPS 2nd User Workshop


The Extreme Light Infrastructure – Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) being implemented in Szeged, Hungary is one of the three pillars of the Extreme Light Infrastructure listed in the ESFRI roadmap that will be the first international facility with the mission to make a wide range of ultrafast light sources accessible to international user groups.  At the core of the infrastructure will be laser driven secondary sources emitting coherent extreme-ultravi­olet (XUV) and X-ray radiation confined in attosecond pulses. Laser driven particle acceleration sources will serve driving novel short wavelength, short pulse duration radiation beam-lines. The perspective of use of several combinations of the ELI-ALPS primary and secondary sources provides a unique research environment to users conducting scientific re­search and industrial applications. ELI-ALPS is expected to be partially available in 2016, while it will become fully operational for user-based research in 2018.

ELI-ALPS, as an international user facility, is undertaking actions towards forming an international user community, incorporating users from a broad spectrum of disciplines, research areas and technological/industrial application. The workshop is in the framework of these actions. The second users’ workshop focuses on research that could be conducted at ELI-ALPS in the scientific areas of material science and chemistry related applications. Its mission is to brainstorm research and technology that could be optimally and/or uniquely hosted by ELI-ALPS.
The program of the workshop will comprise of:

  1. Presentation of the Infrastructure, its primary and secondary sources including provided specialized instrumentation by the personnel of ELI-ALPS
  2. Invited talks on the above topics
  3. Poster presentations by participants on research to be contacted at ELI-ALPS

Talks are only by invitation. Participants may present selected posters relevant to research they envisage performing in ELI-ALPS.

We look forward to welcome you in Szeged.
