Attività

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
The research group works in the field of experimental Astroparticle Physics, an interdisciplinary
field merging astrophysics and particle physics.
The research activity is aimed at addressing fundamental issues ranging from the nature and origin
of cosmic rays, gamma rays and neutrinos to the understanding of dark matter. It is also aimed at
the development of new detectors, with the employment of advanced technologies.
The group is active, with roles of responsibility, in different international experiments; some in the
recent past:
ARGO-YBJ
• KASCADE-Grande
others at present:
Pierre Auger Observatory
Fermi
XENON
LVD
and others in the future:
CTA
JEM-EUSO
LHAASO
XIPE
The group is also involved, though to a lesser extent, in other experiments, e.g. PRISMA and
TAIGA.
The group also takes advantage of the use of labs:
• INFN electronics and mechanical labs
• TurLab
and of the collaboration with local industries:
• Thales Alenia Space (e.g. space debris)
• CAEN (e.g. development of new detectors)
