The scientific and technological development activities are distributed in five Research Activities each of them aiming to realization of a
significant part of the new Research Infrastructure.
The major systems are
the High-Power Laser System (Research Activity 1) and High-Brilliance
Gamma Source (Research Activity 2), both with specifications well beyond
existing facilities and offering, through their combination, unique
features among all the other world-wide planned facilities.
of research to be studies at the new facility, mainly in the field of
nuclear physics and its applications, are grouped in three other Research
Activities. Strong local teams, continuously growing during implementation
phase, will develop state-of-the-art instrumentation for experiments in
the emerging field of laser-driven nuclear physics.
The five Research
Activities emerged naturally, as a logical division between the R&D
related to the experimental systems and the research pursued employing
them, during the debates within the scientific community.
