The activity in technological research is used as a precursor and
incubator for new projects devoted to INFN's experiments: the
researchers group develops materials, apparatuses, new or improved
procedures or, more generally, cutting-edge technologies for
experiments in nuclear, sub-nuclear and astro-particle physics.
The extreme performances required by new experiments give rise
to new techniques for particle acceleration and detection and for
advanced computation tools.
These results have found broad applications in other fields of
science, as well as technology, informatics, health, defense,
cultural heritage and environment preservation.
The activity in technological research develops in four main items:
Electronics and software development
Interdisciplinary applications of INFN cutting-edge techniques.
