Laserový Study trip na ELI a PALS 19-20.11.2015

Vážení členové Klubu vědeckých novinářů, pro kolegy z EUSJA pořádáme laserový Study trip na ELI a PALS. Chcete se přidat? (Anebo nám pomoci s administrací…?)

PALS – Prague-Ládví

18 October (Sunday)

arrival and accommodation – a hotel in Prague (will be specified)

10:00 departure to Dolní Břežany

19 October (Monday)


STAR – Science & Technology Advanced Region

– will be presented by the city mayor Věslav Michalik

ELI Beamlines (

Grand Opening of the ELI Beamlines building

14:30 Welcome by prof. Jiří Drahoš, prof. Jan Řídký

14:40 Speeches by deputies of Czech Government, Academy of Science, and Ing. Roman Hvězda Archbishopric, Ministry of Education, ESFRI and scientific community

15:10 Ribbon cutting and celebratory toast

15:15 Press conference

Visit of the ELI Beamlines building, accompanying program

(presentation of research programs at ELI Beamlines, video, 3D

glasses, poster session), catering, live music

The guests will include Gerard Mourou, École Polytechnique, CNRS, France; Sergei Bulanov, Kansai Photon Science Institute, Japan Atomic Energy Agency; ohn Womersley, ESFRI president; William H. Goldstein, president of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Rolf-Dieter Heuer, CERN Director-General; Ferenc Krausz, Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik; ELI-DC Director-General Wolfgang Sandner; Carlos Moedas, EC, and others.

ELI Beamlines research campus designed by Bogle Architects has won the title of the “Architectural Project of the Year”. The campus, designed as four separate structures, will become the first laser research and technology facility to involve scientists from the global research community for high-powered laser experiments. ELI Beamlines will house the infrastructure for world-class laser research, in particular the investigation into the applications of laser-matter interactions at the highest light intensity levels.

The lasers installed within the complex will reach intensities 10 times higher than those currently achievable and will be used for research into material sciences and engineering, medicine, biology, chemistry, pharmacy and astrophysics; the new generation of laser technology is expected to make important contributions to cancer diagnosing and therapy.

The campus is funded by the European Commission and will accommodate state-of-the-art equipment, modern office and laboratory space, as well as a multi-functional auditorium with a lecture hall and a “massive concrete” laser hall sheltered with a lightweight floating roof. The Boggle had won the project in an international competition.

Those interested may attend a follow-up conference entitled “ELI Beamlines Scientific Challenges 2015” to be held at the Štiřín Castle on October 20-22:

The conference covers the main scientific directions as contained in the research programs of the ELI Beamline project application. The direct contact with scientists from different fields and with potential users will allow to focus experimental capabilities on excellent research enabled by the ELI advanced high intensity high repetition rate lasers and secondary sources.



20 October (Tuesday)

10:00 departure to Praha – Ládví (the campus of several institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences)

PALS – Visit to The Prague Asterix Laser System located at the campus of several institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences in

Praha 8 Ládví (

The facility, which is a direct predecessor of the ELI-Beamlines infrastructure, became operational in spring 2000 using the high-power iodine laser system Asterix IV as its principal experimental equipment originally developed at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany. This year the Institute of Plasma Physics of the CAS celebrates 15 years of the laser´s service in Prague. It is exploited for the research into the interactions of the focused high-power laser beams of a power density of 1014-1016 W/cm2 with matter and for studies of hot laser-produced plasmas. Main effort is aimed at various applications in science and technology of the hot laser plasma products, such as radiation and charged particles.

The PALS laser laboratory is open to both domestic and foreign researchers. Since 2004 it has been participating in Laserlab-Europe.

Late afternoon – back to the hotel
