1 GOVERNMENT OF ROMANIA Structural Instruments 2007-2013 Sectoral Operational Programme „Increase of Economic Competitiveness” “Investments for Your Future” Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) Status and Perspectives EUROPEAN UNION Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund Nicolae-Victor Zamfir

2 Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) Gerard Mourou 1985: Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA)

3 Target Normal Sheath Acceleration (TNSA) Primary radiations Secondary radiations - electrons bremssstrahlung - gamma rays, neutrons Secondary target Electrons are expelled from the target due to the chock wave induced by the powerful laser Heavy ions are accelerated in the field created by the electrons E~I laser 1/2 S.C. Wilks et al., Phys. Plasmas 8, 542 (2001). 3

4 Radiation Pressure Acceleration RPA Electrons and ions accelerated at solid state densities 10 24 e cm -3 (Classical beam densities 10 8 e cm -3 ) on very short distance (μm-mm) E~ I laser Energy reached equal to a 400m up-to-date accelerator (reduction of scale of 10 9 ) 4

5 Proton acceleration Proton acceleration 5 RPA simulations 10 23 W/cm2,15 fs I 0.5
