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.
ELI Beamlines is a European research centre operating the most powerful laser system in the world. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of laser discovery, we spoke about the details of the inception of and the planned research at ELI Beamlines with Professor Jan Řídký, who conceived the project in cooperation with his colleagues.
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 first month of autumn at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences will be marked with a sequence of events intended for the general public. Apart from the annual events such as the Science Festival or Researchers‘ Night, the Institute of Physics will participate in a neighbourhood fest entitled Different City Experience
The Fair offered a number of other exciting things from physics and other fields of science, as well as a bracelet for UV radiation detection or the laser labyrinth
She is a Half Marathon runner and a scientist who explores processes in the quantum vacuum. Hedvika Kadlecová from ELI Beamlines Research Centre in Dolní Břežany has become one of the three winners of the prestigious L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science.
Since 2018 the Day of Light has been celebrated across all continents as well as in the Czech Republic. At this occasion, ELI Beamlines and HiLASE laser centres hosted a special Open Doors Day. The unique atmosphere of the event was enhanced by special illumination and light projections after the sunset.
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.
If you wish to have the best scientific team to be in the front line of global science, you need to start looking for its members at an early stage. Ideally at a secondary school level.
