The main goal of the foundation of ELI-ALPS is to build the first user facility in the attoscience. The equipment of the institute is going to be able to produce the shortest electromagnetic impulses from the lower boundaries of the terahertz range through the infrared, visible, ultra-violet spectral range till the soft X-ray then the hard X-ray spectra. This way it is unique in the world to cover six level of frequency range. The above mentioned apparatus is supported by high-tech workshops and laboratories - to make optical layers, managing nanofabrication, even on site during the user experiments.
The ELI-ALPS is a new user facility on international level, dedicated to serve international research groups. The mission of a user facility always goes far beyond the simple installation of the equipment and devices. That is why it is so important at the commissioning phase to gain more and more experiences and knowledge by active participation of the external users. Our aim is to build and develop a facility for future science and provide an inspiring and unique home of attosecond laser pulse research technology.
The User Office of ELI-ALPS welcomes any further question!
