The Extreme Light Infrastructure Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) project is one of the
most prestigious research infrastructures in the world due to its unique state-of-the-art equipment. Implemented by
the National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering Horia Hulubei (IFIN-HH),
ELI-NP has been designated by the Nuclear Physics Collaboration Committee of the European Science Foundation
(NuPECC) as a major facility in the
Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan.
The ELI-NP finalized successfully the commissioning of the High-Power Laser System (HPLS), the most powerful laser in the world. The ELI-NP HPLS is now delivering the 2 x 10 PW @ 1 shot per minute, 2 x 1 PW @ 1 Hz and the 2 x 100 TW @ 10 Hz pulses and the first commissioning experiments are under implementation. The success of the HPLS implementation is the result of an excellent collaboration between ELI-NP and Thales.
