È il laboratorio dei LNF di luce di sincrotrone, radiazione emessa da particelle cariche accelerate che viaggiano a velocità relativistiche. Questa radiazione è una sonda ideale per studiare sistemi fisici con dimensioni diverse con applicazioni dalle nanoscienze ai beni culturali.Read More »
Experiment of the month
It is a research and industrial laboratory dedicated to the design, construction, characterization and space qualification of laser retroreflectors deployed on artificial satellites and celestial bodies for their accurate positioning by means of the laser ranging technique, i. e. the accurate measurement of the time-of-flight of short laser pulses.Read More »
LATINO is an open research infrastructure aimed to support industries and scientific community providing advanced technologies and know-how developed in particle accelerator for research, medical and industrial application.Read More »
CUORE is a second-generation experiment for research in Double Beta Decay of 130Te without neutrino emission.
The sensitivity is such as to allow probing of the mass region of the neutrino suggested for inverse hierarchy by the results of the most recent experiments on neutrino oscillations.
To search for new physics scientists can increase the available energy to produce and observe new particles or measure processes extremely rare, and compare them with the theoretical predictions, NA62 has the primary purpose of searching for new physics by measuring a rare decay of the K meson.Read More »
The interest of Particle Physics is increasingly focused on the search for the so-called New Physics beyond the Standard Model (SM), in order to understand and answer some fundamental questions that this model does not describe.Read More »
The MoonLIGHT-2 collaboration aims to study the physics of gravitation by measuring, using the Laser Ranging technique (possibly coupled with Microwave Ranging measurements), the distance between the Earth and other celestial bodies (namely, the Moon and Mars).Read More »
Particle physics today is in a very particular situation: all particles of the Standard Model have been discovered, no super symmetric particle has been found at the LHC, and the mass value of the Higgs and top are such that the Standard Model could be a valid theory up to the Planck mass.Read More »
ATLAS is the largest piece of equipment at LHC, with a length of 26 m and a maximum diameter of 22 m.
CYGNO is a detector under construction at INFN Frascati National Laboratories for the detection of dark matter and neutrinos coming from the Sun. Its main characteristic is the ability to see - like a telescope - in a determined direction.Read More »
