HiFi - High Field Initiative


Principal investigator: Sergey Bulanov
Project title: High Field Initiative
Acronym: HiFi
Operational programme: Research, Development and Education
Provider: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
Project number: CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/15_003/0000449
Time period: 1/7/2017 - 31/10/2022
Total costs: 235,956,040.00 CZK
EU co-financing rate: 85%


Next generation high power lasers, such as ELI-Beamlines 10 PW laser, access new physics regimes. The theory/simulation program will explore these regimes and give a solid theoretical base which will lead to the realization of completely new high field experiments. This requires an upgrade of the existing 10 PW infrastructure. The synergy between theory/simulation and experimental infrastructure will create a worldwide unique center at the frontiers of super intense laser matter interaction.

This project is co-financed by EU.
