ICTP Laboratories

Laboratory opportunities at ICTP

Multidisciplinary Laboratory (MLab): The ICTP MLab promotes interdisciplinary experimental activities based on advanced instruments and methods developed in basic physics research. MLab activities include scientific instrumentation development, novel detector and electronic circuit design and prototyping, X-ray imaging, and accelerator-based analytical techniques.

Guglielmo Marconi ICT Wireless Laboratory: The Marconi Laboratory houses ICTP's training programmes on wireless communications technologies conducted by ICTP's Aeronomy and Radiopropagation Laboratory, providing much-needed support in wireless technology education to students and researchers from developing countries.

ICTP Laser Laboratory: The ICTP Laser Laboratory is a collaborative experimental facility serving the needs of both ICTP and Elettra. Students and researchers in the lab investigate the physics and applications of short pulse lasers, specifically femtosecond lasers used in the seeding of the FERMI Free Electron Laser at Elettra.

ICTP Applied Physics Laboratory: This laboratory, also located at Elettra, conducts basic research activities and supports advanced courses for PhD students in turbulent fluid mechanics, as well as providing support for joint synchrotron-related lab experiments.

ICTP-INFN-SPIE Quantum Cascade Laser Laboratory: ICTP and SPIE, the international optics and photonics society, collaborate with the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) to research quantum cascade lasers (QCL), which have numerous applications in the remote sensing of environmental gases and pollutants, as well as in medical diagnostics.

ICTP Scientific FabLab: The ICTP Scientific FabLab is a workshop area for Makers within ICTP campus and it offers the possibility of digital fabrication and rapid prototyping for projects in the fields of science, education and sustainable development.
