INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro

Description The Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL), founded in 1961, are one of the four national laboratories of Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN). Accelerator facilities in operation at LNL provide light and heavy-ion beams up to 30 MeV/u. In particular: - Tandem/ALPI: a 15 MV XTU-Tandem (A<90), coupled to the ALPI superconducting booster, delivering heavy-ion beams with energies up to 10 MeV/u. - PIAVE-ALPI superconducting linac: an ECR ion source injects superconducting RFQs and QWRs, delivering ion beams up to approximately 15 MeV/u; - Van de Graaff accelerators AN2000 (2.5 MV) and CN (7.0 MV ) providing light-ion beams for applied, interdisciplinary and biomedical physics. The research fields range from fundamental nuclear physics to accelerator technologies as well as several interdisciplinary activities, in collaboration with researchers from various national and international scientific bodies. Activities in the field of astroparticle physics (gravitational waves) are also in progress. A new gamma array detector GALILEO for nuclear structure studies is in the construction phase and its operation will start in 2014. Scientific proposals requiring access to the laboratory facilities undergo a peer review selection based on the scientific merit. The proposal evaluation is carried out by a Program Advisory Committee.
