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.

More than 800 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.

The exhibition "Lise Chi?" is dedicated to the scientist of Austrian origin who gave a fundamental contribution to theoretical knowledge on nuclear fission, Lise Meitner. Edited by Simona Cerrato di Sissa Medialab (Trieste), it is installed at Legnaro National Laboratories until April 30th. The exhibition integrates the visit itinerary for school groups and guest groups during the months of February, March, April.

 On April 11th Paul Meitner (Lise Meitner's relative) is at LNL.
