Programs on Small-Scale Superconducting Devices in Italy

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 21)


Research on fundamental and applied aspects of small-scale superconducting devices in Italy is carried out at 4 universities, 4 government laboratories and 1 industrial laboratory. Financing of the university laboratories comes through Gruppo Nazionale Struttura della Materia, the national agency for research on the structure of matter, from funds administrated by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), the national research council. CNR finances directly its own two laboratories in which superconductivity research is present; the leading research program of one laboratory (Arco Felice) is on cybernetics, and of the other (Rome) is on electronic properties of solid state. The other two government laboratories where small-scale superconductivity is pursued are CNEN at Frascati (Rome), the major laboratory of the Italian nuclear energy agency, and Istituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale “G. Ferraris” in Turin, the Italian metrology laboratory. The industrial laboratory is SNAM-Progetti at Monterotondo (Rome), which is part of the holding company of the major Italian gasoline company.
