Laser-target interaction represents a very promising field for several potential applications,
from the nuclear physics to the radiobiology. However optically accelerated particle beams are
characterized by some extreme features, not suitable for many applications. Therefore, beyond
the improvements at the laser-target interaction level, many researchers are spending their efforts
for the development of specific beam transport devices in order to obtain controlled and
reproducible output beams.In this background, the ELIMED (ELI-Beamlines MEDical applications)
project was born. Within 2017, a dedicated transport beam-line coupled with dosimetric
systems, named ELIMED, will be installed at the Extreme Light Infrastructure Beamlines
(ELI-Beamlines) facility in Prague (CZ),as a part of the ELIMAIA (ELI Multidisciplinary Applications
of laserâA ¸SIon Acceleration) beamline
