Designed by BFLS, Extreme Light Infrastructure Facility is located in Czech Republic. BFLS is one of a growing number of practices relying on WAN to provide a consistent source of international leads for projects.
The prestigious ELI project marks a new chapter in European scientific research when the facility starts operating in 2015 at Dolní B?ežany near Prague. This type of laser technology is expected to be at the forefront of major breakthroughs in medical treatment, such as cancer diagnosis and treatment, and therapy and in new fields of nuclear physics that could, for example, lead to new treatments for nuclear waste. Optics, photonics (experiments involving light), molecular chemistry, pharmacy and nano-science should also benefit. Apart from basic research, it should also bring opportunities for applications and cooperation across high-tech industry.
