Laboratory Tours

Visit the laboratories

At the end of the conference, on Friday, May 12, 2023, you will be able to visit one of the two institutions.

Please remember to select your choice during the registration procedure.
A limited number of seats is available and they will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.

INFN - LNL (Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro)​

Friday, May 12, 2023 afternoon

Departure at 2:30 pm from the Convention Center.
Estimated time of return to Venice Lido at dinner time.
Return trip by bus.
There is limited number of 150 seats available per tour, reservations in the registration form on first come first served basis.

LNL is one of the four national laboratories of INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) and is located at just 40 km from the IPAC’23 venue. It houses five hadron accelerators, delivering beams to several experimental facilities for basic physics and applications. In 2023, the radioactive beam facility SPES (Selective Production of Exotic Species) shall have been mostly built. The SPES driver is a recently commissioned proton cyclotron, which will also produce radioisotopes for medicine. We are pleased to host IPAC 2023 participants for a guided tour of the major scientific facilities of the site. The tour will include the heavy ion superconducting linacs, the cyclotron and the radioactive ion beam production and selection systems, the main detectors for nuclear physics with stable and exotic beams.

Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste

Friday, May 12, 2023 afternoon

Departure at 2:00 pm from the Convention Center.
Estimated time of return to Venice Lido at dinner time.
Return trip by bus.
There is limited number of 150 seats available per tour, reservations in the registration form on first come first served basis.

Elettra is an international and multidisciplinary research center of excellence, specialized in the study of materials through the light generated by two sources: Elettra, a third-generation synchrotron radiation facility, and FERMI, a free electron laser of new concept. The light produced is used to study matter and its properties at atomic level by 36 experimental stations supported by numerous chemistry, biology, materials science, electronics and computer science laboratories that enhance the scientific investigation capacity of the experimental stations. Visitors will be taken into the experimental halls of both Elettra and FERMI, meet researcher who will illustrate their work, the potential of techniques employed and fields of applications.
