The broad lines of research of the Physics Section cover areas of modern theoretical and experimental physics, ranging from quantum optics to high energy physics, from quantum computing to laser physics, from cosmology to materials science, from medical physics to dynamical systems. There are various activities in close collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics, the National Council of Research and the National Institute of Astrophysics. Moreover, a PhD programme in Physics and Astrophysics with strong international connotations allows the Section to train young researchers and give them the tools and skills needed to integrate into research groups in national and foreign institutions and laboratories.

Insulab Laboratory

The INSULAB laboratory directed by Michela Prest is a laboratory for the development of detection systems based on silicon detectors and plastic scintillators for particle physics, space physics and medical physics.

Calorimetro shashilk

Shashlik calorimeter lead-scintillator, read by Silicon photomultiplier, installed in the line of T9 Proton Synchrotron at CERN for the testing phase.

Calorimetro a cristalli Crystal matrix PbWO4for the construnction of a crystal calorimeter with silicon photomultiplier. The crystals are the prototypes of the detectors of the electromagnetic calorimeter of CMS (LHC )

Fotomoltiplicatore Matrix of four Silicon Photomultiplier for reading the light emitted by organic or inorganic scintillators for the realization of tracking systems and calorimeters.

Rivelatore Boro Detector scintillating fiber doped with boron read from a multi-anode photomultiplier for measuring the radiation therapy with high-energy photon beams.

Rivelatore Microstrip Silicon microstrip detector for the reconstruction of the trajectory of the charged particles diverted by curved crystals of silicon. The detector has been installed in the vacuum system of one of the lines of the accelerator MAMI (Mainz).
