ELI Summer School 2023

The 8th edition of the ELI Summer School series aims to provide young scientists with a comprehensive overview of the generation and application of intense laser pulses and laser-driven particle and radiation sources. Last year, more than 300 students from 29 countries followed the scientific programme of ELISS in front of the screens – and this time, the pandemic situation allows us to finally meet in person again.

Main topics include:

  • High-power ultrafast lasers
  • Generation of bright coherent and incoherent X-ray pulses using short pulse lasers
  • Free electron lasers from IR to x-rays
  • Ultrafast imaging techniques with short x-ray pulses
  • Function and applications of short x-ray pulses (including synchronizations)
  • Particle acceleration by lasers and applications: proton therapy
  • Physics of dense plasmas and warm dense matter, laboratory astrophysics
  • Ultra-intense laser matter interaction
  • Nuclear physics with high-intensity lasers
  • Femtoscience: applications in biology, chemistry and solid-state physics
  • Generation of attosecond pulses: Attoscience photonics
