INFN Technical Platforms for Accelerators

The Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) is a distributed research agency composed of twenty divisions and four national laboratories, working in tight collaboration with universities in different Italian cities and other research institutions.

In the several decades of its activity, INFN has developed different facilities related to accelerator technology. Nowadays, several groups can provide high level services to physics laboratories and industries working in magnet technology, radiofrequency, cryogenics and radiations. The technological platforms of INFN, in the field of accelerator technologies, can be grouped in the following services.

  • Irradiation
  • High Magnetic Field
    • MARISA (Sezione di Genova)
    • SOLEMI (LASA, Sezione di Milano)
