ELI Summer School 2023

The 8th edition of the ELI Summer School series will be hosted by the ELI Beamlines Facility in Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic, from 29 August to 1 September 2023. The event will be jointly organised by ELI ALPS as an ELI ERIC event.

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.

Date of the ELI Summer School: 29 August – 1 September 2023

Venue of the event: ELI Beamlines Facility, Czech Republic, Dolní Břežany, Za Radnicí 835

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
  • Ultraintense laser matter interaction
  • Nuclear physics with high-intensity lasers
  • Femtoscience: applications in biology, chemistry and solid-state physics
  • Generation of attosecond pulses: Attoscience photonics
