IPAC'23 hosting Institutions

INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare)

INFN is the Italian research agency studying the fundamental constituents of matter and the laws governing them, under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research. It conducts theoretical and experimental research in the fields of sub-nuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics. Research is accompanied by cutting-edge technologies and instruments, developed by INFN in its laboratories and in collaboration with industries. INFN employs some 5,000 scientists, contributing to various European and worldwide laboratories. LNL (Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro) is the INFN national laboratory closest to the proposed IPAC’23 conference centre. It houses five hadron accelerators, delivering beams to first-class experimental instruments, available to users from all over Europe and beyond. In 2023 the research facility SPES shall have largely been built: it will expand the LNL +50 years experience in designing and operating accelerators, exploring the very mechanism of nuclear matter origin in stars. The SPES driver is a proton cyclotron, a primary scope of which will be the production of radioisotopes of medical interest, in a collaboration with an industrial partner. LNL gives substantial contributions to the construction of the European Spallation Source and IFMIF, the International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility.

Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A.

Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A., non-profit Share Company of national interest, is a multidisciplinary international laboratory of excellence, specialised in generating high quality synchrotron and free-electron laser light and applying it in materials and life science. The laboratory has enduring working relationships with many Italian and foreign partner Institutions. It is part of the primary network for science and technology of the Central European Initiative and Representing Entity of Italy in the Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium. The main assets of the centre are two advanced light sources, Elettra and FERMI, attracting academic and industrial researchers from more than 50 countries. Elettra is the Italian third generation light source serving the scientific community since 1993, revised and upgraded in 2009. The project of a new low emittance light source is approved and now in progress. FERMI is the new seeded free electron laser (FEL) facility, which, unique among the FEL sources currently operating in the ultraviolet and soft x-ray range worldwide, has been developed to provide fully coherent ultrashort (10-100 fs) pulses with a peak brightness ten billion times higher than that made available by third-generation light sources. Elettra also contributes to the construction of other accelerators such as SESAME and the European Spallation Source.
