Workshop Magurele

The ELItrans workshops took place in Bucharest-Magurele, at the National Physics Library, in the period 23-24 May 2016. They were composed of 3 sessions, with discussions and presentations dedicated to: Gamma beams diagnostics, Hard X-Ray, XUV and Particle, and included a visit to the ELI-NP site. Six international experts have joined the ELITrans team during these workshops to present their ideas and recommendations. The workshop audience - about 35 people, including participants from all three ELI pillars - involved in activities related to the various diagnostic techniques presented during the workshop.

The Diagnostics Work Package 6 of the ELITrans project addresses the need for standard methods and protocols for the characterization of primary (laser) and secondary sources, throughout the entire ELI project.

The workshops MS.17 - “Workshop on secondary source protocols” and MS.18 - “Workshop on gamma source protocols” have been focused on gathering together the ELI community, as well as external experts in the field, to discuss and analyze the challenges of this work and more precisely the Task 2 - “First steps towards international standardization of these methods and protocols, together with the scientific communities and the industry”. These workshops followed the “Workshop on user-facility interfaces” and the “Workshop on laser diagnostics protocols” organized in 2015 in Bucharest and Prague, respectively.
