research activity of the Intense Laser
Laboratory (ILIL) is focused on
fundamental studies of
laser interactions with matter and their
. The Laboratory participates to the
European Infrastructures EuPRAXIA and ELI and
is engaged in the experimental programme for
the validation of the European Laser Fusion Energy HiPER.
At ILIL, flexible
laser systems and multi-purpose
interaction chambers are combined with the
of performing high temporal
from the IR to the
include plasma formation and heating
laser beams, laser-induced instabilitiesand
non-linear processes, atomic physics of
plasmas, ultrashort X-ray emission and acceleration of
The Laboratory has well established collaborations with
many leading international High-Power Laser Laboratories
and Facilities, as well as Academic Groups.
The Intense Laser Irradiation Laboratory has a long-term
experience in the training of young scientists through several
schemes including European Union RT Networks.
