Welcome to Legnaro National Laboratories (LNL)

lnl flagsLNL is one of the four national labs of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). The mission is to perform basic research in nuclear physics and nuclear-astrophysics, together with applications of nuclear technologies.

Around 700 scientists from all over the world are involved in the ongoing research programs. Every day about 250 people work at LNL, half of them being INFN employees (physicists, engineers, technicians....) the remaining half coming from universities and research institutions in Italy and abroad. The laboratory budget is nearly 20 Million Euro per year, half for handling and research, half for personnel. Strength points are the development of particle accelerators and of nuclear radiation detectors, and the technology transfer.

The European Horizon 2020 project ChETEC-INFRA started on May 1st 2021

One new Horizon 2020 European projects where INFN takes on a central role have been launched on May 1st

ChETEC-INFRA (Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos - Infrastructure) is a four-year project with a budget of 5 million euros, involving 32 Institutions from 18 European nations in strong connection with nuclear astrophysics communities of United States, China, and Japan. The initiative is at the frontier of the nuclear astrophysics that studies the origin of chemical elements: from Big Bang to stellar combustion up to the neutron and proton capture processes leading to the formation of the heavier elements. INFN is responsible for the development, construction, and testing of solid and gaseous innovative targets to study nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest. The LNL team will be involved in the development of innovative neutron detectors, such as composite scintillators and new plastic materials, also in collaboration with industrial partners.

Good luck to Josè Javier Valiente Dobon and Andrea Gottardo!
