Abstract | Full Text

Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is one of the 48 infrastructures of the European Strategic Forum for Research Infrastructure (ESFRI) roadmap and represents a major step forward in quest for producing extreme electromagnetic fields. Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) is one of the three pillars of the ELI initiative, which aims to use extreme electromagnetic fields for nuclear physics research. A high power laser system and a very brilliant gamma beam are the two main research equipment at the core of ELI-NP. Their targeted operational parameters are described. The related experimental areas are also presented, together with the main directions of the proposed scientific programme.
