On the site of one of the four pillars of the massive European laser project ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure), the construction of ELI-ALPS (Attosecond Light Pulse Source), a facility dedicated to ultrashort laser pulses, has entered its final stretch. Apart from breaking new ground in the study of very fast atomic and molecular processes, it is also expected to bring about improvements in medicine and life sciences.
The University of Szeged organise for the fourth time the summer school "Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences - LAMELIS". The LAMELIS 2017 summer school will be held between 12th and 21st July, and is open to both medical and physics students. Although the theoretical depth of talks is tailored for medical students, the programme can also benefit physics students as they can learn of medical applications of lasers directly from distinguished experts of the field and receive first-hand information on the current status of ELI-ALPS.
