Abstract

We present the current status of ELI-Beamlines that will be the Czech pillar of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) project. The facility will make available high-brightness multi-TW ultrashort laser pulses at kHz repetition rate, 10 Hz repetition rate laser pulses at the petawatt level together with kilojoule nanosecond laser pulses that will be used for generation of 10 PW. These beamlines will be combined to generate X-ray secondary sources, to accelerate electrons, protons and ions and to study dense plasma and high-field frontier physics. These programs will be introduced together with the engineering program necessary for building a users' facility.
