Participation of the Institute of Plasma Physics and Lasers of the Hellenic Mediterranean University in the European Project 101046458 — TECHNO-CLS of the European Innovation Council (EIC) Pathfinder
TECHNO-CLS project aims at the breakthrough in technologies needed for designing and practical realisation of novel gamma-ray Light Sources (LS) operating at photon energies from ~100 keV up to GeV range that can be constructed through exposure of oriented crystals (linear, bent and periodically bent) to the beams of ultra-relativistic charged particles. The TECHNO-CLS high-risk/high-gain science-towards-technology breakthrough research programme will address the physics of the processes accompanying the oriented crystal exposure to irradiation by the high-energy electron and positron beams at the atomistic level of detail needed for the realisation of the TECHNO-CLS goals.
To achieve dynamic shaping of the crystal structure, special innovative methods will be developed, based on the generation of acoustic waves produced by piezoelectric transducers and/or pulsed lasers.
Project coordinator of the Hellenic Mediterranean University is Professor Nektarios Papadogiannis, while the members of the coordinating committee of IPPL Michael Tatarakis and Vasilis Dimitriou also participate.
