Research Unit of di Sesto Fiorentino


In 2003, INO started a collaboration with the European Laboratory for Non-linear Spectroscopy (LENS). This has allowed the beginning of a permanent scientific activity of INO researchers at LENS laboratories and offices, and the opening of local LENS laboratories in Pozzuoli (Naples), nearby the local structures of INO.
