At the forefront of new Industries in Romania

The Laser Valley project is the outcome of a series of complementary initiatives that shaped the concept of smart urban development and of a science, innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem as a regional and European competitiveness pole, generated by the scientific and technological uniqueness of ELI-NP (Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics).

The Laser Valley will capitalize on ELI-NP as a unique research facility which will generate an international scientific and technological pole of excellence together with the existing hub in Măgurele, which includes seven national research-development institutes and a university, and also the connection with Bucharest and the concentration of universities, research and talent resources there.

The Laser Valley will foster the multiplication effect which can be generated by the links with knowledge-intensive sectors both as providers for the ELI-NP needs, and as beneficiaries from the economic use of research outcomes. They will generate an area of creativity, innovation, experiments and testing – an entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem.

The Laser Valley will foster the creation of scientific, technological and industrial parks, inspired by public initiatives, by public-private partnerships and by private initiatives.

The Laser Valley will influence lifestyle through living areas, creativity and recreation areas which capitalize on the natural capital, and through various complementary educational facilities with a strong experimental component in the Science Village.

The ecosystem will have a strong international component, because there will be people from all over the world living and working in Laser Valley.

Development principles

a connected valley

Laser Valley includes the southern area of Bucharest. It is directly relevant for the development of the Giurgiu and Ilfov Counties, but also for nearby Teleorman and Călăraşi Counties. It is core centered on the city of Măgurele, the ELI-NP host.

The most powerful laser in the world

10 PW, World Premiere at ELI-NP

On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, the 10PW (ten millions of billions of Watts) performance of ELI-NP’s High Power Laser System was officially released and a demonstrative test was presented.

Reaching 10 PW at ELI-NP is a reference point for scientific research worldwide, Europe making available, in premiere, via Romania, the most powerful laser in the world.

The completion of this unique scientific equipment at the assumed parameters confirms that ELI-NP is a successful project, a landmark in the history of Science, and paves the way to top-level international experiments in Măgurele.

High-tech research

Top research applications which will improve community life

The city of Măgurele hosts, besides the ELI-NP centre, other six research institutes and the Faculty of Physics of the University of Bucharest, active in the following fields: physics and nuclear engineering, lasers, plasma and radiation, space sciences and material physics.

A wide range of possible applications will be explored by the international community of users and will serve a wide range of research topics which will find applicability in fundamental research (atomic nucleus, astrophysics, quantum electrodynamics), security and terrorism prevention (research on detection of special materials of strategic interest, ionizing radiation imaging), ecology and environmental (research on new radioactive waste diagnosis and processing methods), materials science and engineering (effects of intense radiation fields on materials), nuclear medicine and life sciences (use of accelerated particle beams supported by lasers in hadrontherapy, new medical imaging techniques), radiopharmaceuticals (methods to produce new types of radioisotopes) and high-tech industry.
