Operation of the L3-HAPLS laser system (ELI Beamlines Research Centre) at 0.5 PW level was demonstrated through compression of the full energy output pulses currently generated by the laser chain, in the Petawatt vacuum compressor. The L3-HAPLS is a system designed for sustained operation with repetition rate 10 Hz.
The Talent Academy for the third time offered an opportunity for secondary schools students to try what it is like to work as researchers at professional laboratories.
The increase in the proton therapy effectiveness has been first proven experimentally: Proton Boron Capture Therapy
The use of the Proton Boron Capture Therapy to increase the effectiveness of cancer cells destruction in proton therapy has been experimentally proven.
Scientists will compile and integrate this key laser system with a central control system for a period of twelve months. After the completion, it will be the highest performed laser system on average in the world.
