The ELI-ALPS research facility reached a new milestone with the generation of the very first high-order harmonics in noble gases with the use of the recently installed HR1 laser.
The Research Institute reached a new milestone today evening: managed to produce the very first high harmonics (i.e. burst of attosecond pulses) in noble gases with the use of the recently installed HR1 laser. The experiment of the first commissioning users of ELI-ALPS, led by Hans Jakob Wörner from ETH Zürich, ultimately aiming at generating harmonics in liquid jets, will be carried out during the next couple of weeks.
ELI-HU NonProfit Ltd. has organized a workshop concerning the implementation of the surface high harmonic generation secondary sources of ELI-ALPS, as well as the related beam transport systems. The goal of the workshop was to inform the interested parties and institutes as well as to survey the possible alternatives for the implementation of the abovementioned sources and beam transport systems.
’Modern light sources and their applications’ winter school was held at ELI-ALPS’s Brain conference hall between 7th and 9th December. This 3 day school aimed to provide an introduction to modern x-ray sources including synchrotrons, x-ray free electron lasers and laser driven x-ray sources - like ELI-ALPS itself.
The future of the ELI super laser centre in Szeged, the largest research infrastructure in Hungary, was the central topic of the meeting in Brussels attended by József Pálinkás, President of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office.
The Hungarian Fizikai Szemle (Physics Review) covers several topics of ELI-ALPS in its October issue. After the Welcome of Research Technology Director Károly Osvay, the periodical introduces our colleagues’ results.
The 12th European Researchers' Night was organised on 29 September 2017. The event has been held every September since 2005. The Researchers’ Night celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015 - about 1.1 million citizens and 18,000 researchers took part, in the scientific events organised in over 300 cities within Europe and neighbouring countries.
