Focus on the lightest atoms in the smallest crystals (13/1/2017)
Scientists from the Institute of Physics of the CAS lead an international team, which developed a new method to analyze the scattering of electrons in nanocrystals. The method is so accurate that it can be used to detect the positions of even the lightest of all atoms – the hydrogens. The accuracy and reliability of the method was demonstrated in a publication, where hydrogen positions were determined in two different materials. The work was published in the journal Science in its January 13th, 2017 issue.
Prime Ministers Cameron and Nečas praise ELI as a catalyst for Czech-British co-operation (23/6/2011)
On 23.6.2011, the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, together with his Czech counterpart, Petr Nečas, paid a visit to the Prague Asterix Laser System (PALS), where they exchanged on the furthering of scientific co-operation between the Czech Republic, the UK and other members of the EU. A very significant illustration of this co-operation is the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI), one of Europe’s most ambitious scientific projects in the last two decades.
The ELI Beamlines project approved (20/4/2011)
On 20 April 2011, the European Commission finally approved the ELI Beamlines project. This is the first of the large projects of the Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovation (OP RDI) to be approved.
