On October 24, Hudson Institute in partnership with the Extreme Light Infrastructure-Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) project in Romania, hosted a conference to discuss ground-breaking research being conducted at ELI-NP to develop the world’s most advanced laser. Leading experts from the U.S. and Romania will discuss the applications of the laser in a variety of scientific, defense, and medical fields and the importance of international cooperation in scientific research.
ELI-NP’s high-powered laser is the most powerful operational laser in the world. It is the culmination of years of work by a dedicated international team operating in Romania, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. Their research holds the potential for significant advances in a variety of fields including nuclear waste disposal, dark matter research, and chemotherapy. Additionally, the technology possesses defense applications ranging from the management of nuclear weapon stockpiles to the development of advanced space weapons.
