ELI Summer School 2018

The ELISS 2018 is the third edition of the ELI Summer School series and its main goal is to provide young fellows with a comprehensive overview on the field of the generation and application of intense lasers pulses. The Summer School will be held on 27-31th August 2018, deadline for application is 27th July 2018.

The lectures will devote large emphasis to the generation of secondary radiation sources extending from the THz to the X-ray and Gamma-ray spectral, as well as to the generation and acceleration of particle beams. The wide range of applications, going from cultural heritage to the investigation of nuclear physics will be also a central topic of the lectures.

The school will be organized in five days at the ELI-ALPS research facility, with two poster sessions. A social dinner will be organized to foster communication between the participants to the school.


• High-power ultrashort lasers
• Generation and applications of intense THz radiation
• Generation and amplification of ultra-short laser pulses
• Generation of bright coherent and incoherent X-ray pulses using short pulse lasers
• Ultrafast imaging techniques with short x-ray pulses
• Particle acceleration and applications
• Plasma Physics
• Laser matter interaction at ultra-high intensities
• Generation and application of attosecond pulses
• Nuclear Physics with intense lasers

Daniele Brida, Georg Korn, Fabian Langer, Daniel Ursescu and Károly Osvay are confirmed to give lectures at the Summer School, the continually broadening list of our invited speakers is also available on the website.

SZTE Experience

GloriaGloria Kafui Esi Zodanu - Faculty of Science and Informatics

I’m a Ph.D. student from Ghana and enrolled in a scholarship program. I heard about the university for the first time from a friend as a peaceful and friendly place to be. Indeed, the city of Szeged is a quiet, and peaceful place to live. My supervisor and HOD’S approach to teaching gives me a better insight and understanding of the program. The city is very friendly, and I go shopping and walking in my free time. The Dom square is a magnificent landmark, and the surrounding buildings are excellent reference points of a branded city of natural beauty. The most attractive place for me in Szeged is the zoo. Hungary is a beautiful country with the rivers such as the Danube, Tisza and the surrounding bridges. My expectations of the university and study environment keep improving by the day, and I’m delighted. I will recommend the university to because of the quality educational system for career development.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
