  • The ELI Beamlines Facility is a leading laser research centre and part of ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) pan-European Research Infrastructure hosting the world's most intense lasers. ELI Beamlines was opened in 2015 as a cutting edge laser facility. It offers to its users unique femtosecond sources of X-rays and accelerated particles and these beamlines enable pioneering research not only in physics and material science, but also in life science, laboratory astrophysics, chemistry with strong application potential. ELI Beamlines is delivering ultrashort, ultra-intense laser pulses lasting typically a few femtoseconds (12-150 fs) with peak powers ranging from 5 TW up to 10 PW. ELI Beamlines is a part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

    The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to institutions, which put significant effort into improving their human resources strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.
