Indrajeet Prasad working at ELI Beamlines.

FOTON s.r.o. worked on installation and commissioning of L3 High intensity laser lab at ELI Beamlines in Nov-Dec 2018.
It was a successful collaboration between both research centers. Indrajeet Prasad along with 2 of his colleague from FOTON had worked on installation, wiring and commissioning at L3 lab and its control center.

He gained experience of working on industrial diagram of laser lab design. He also gained experience in working on high intensity laser lab installation. Working in ELI Beamline’s High intensity laser lab, he also learned the industrial protocol for highest LEVEL-4 safety instructions and it’s working conditions. Overall, it was a great experience for Indrajeet to use his knowledge and apply it in real life scenarios.

ELI Beamlines is part of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project, a new Research Infrastructure of pan-European interest and part of the European Strategy Forum on Research (ESFRI) Roadmap.

The ELI Beamlines research center aspires to install and run the world's most intense laser system. With ultra-high peak powers of 10 PW (Petawatt) and focused intensities up to 1024 W/cm2 we will offer unique sources of radiation and particle beams to our users. These beamlines will enable ground-breaking research - not only in the fields of physics and material science, but also in biomedical research and laboratory astrophysics.
The Nobel prize for Physics in 2018 was awarded to Gerard Mourou, the father of the idea of ELI beamlines research center for groundbreaking inventions in the field of laser physics, jointly with Arthur Ashkin and Donna Strickland.
