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.

SALVIA, a new experiment of young researcher program

SALVIA (Setup for AnaLysis with MeV accelerators of Isotopic tArgets and their preparation) is a new INFN experiment financed by the Commissione Scientifica Nazionale 5, in the field of young researcher program, involving LNL (coordinator of the groups), LNGS, Padova and Napoli. The SALVIA project has a two goals: one aims to produce and characterize solid thin films of given isotopic composition with very low interfering γ and neutron background for cross section measurements at LNL and LNGS accelerators. The second goal is devoted to design a new experimental setup for the full characterization of the materials produced and then tested using accelerators with energy ranging from 0.2 to 6.0 MeV.
