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 Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Robert Plaga, President of the Czech Academy of Sciences Eva Zažímalová, and Director of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences Michael Prouza signed the memorandum of cooperation on the membership of the Czech Republic in the legal entity of ELI ERIC.
At the moment, students can participate in an Internet round of the competition at the following website: www.talentovka.cz. During a three-day finale in October, twelve best competitors will check out the simulation of a scientific experiment at professional laboratories of the laser centres.
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.
Krakatit, Ámos, Perla, Lucifer and Bivoj. These are the names for Czech super-lasers.
ELI Beamlines is the largest research project in modern Czech history, operating a unique laser system since last summer. This 17 metres-long laser system boasts with the highest average power in the world, enabling to create - for a split second - the warmest spot in the universe.
The Institute of Physics has ranked among the group of prestigious European institutions having the right to use the certificate. However, it is important to realize that it does not end by gaining the award. On the other hand, to retain it our progress needs to be evaluated in regular intervals.
ELI enjoys strong ties with US labs and companies, who took an active part in the development and delivery of some of the ELI laser systems
The best students will receive an internship offer to work in research teams to be able to get some more detailed insight into the research in laser physics as part of other activities.
