Applied Superconductivity at Milano LASA

The INFN laboratory LASA (short for Laboratorio Acceleratori e Superconduttività Applicata, i.e. Laboratory for Accelerators and Applied Superconductivity), in Segrate, at the outskirts of Milano, is an internationally known Particle Accelerator Technology excellence center since nearly thirty years.

The main mission of LASA currently is the development of radiofrequency superconducting resonators for particle beam acceleration (RF), and superconducting magnets for particle beam orbit and focusing. The facility is equipped with a Helium Liquifier Linde TCF20, serving magnet and RF cavity test stations.

SOLEMI: Facility with a large bore (535 mm) for testing superconducting cables and small magnets in a background magnetic field up to 13.5T
Magnet Test Station: vertical cryostat 690 mm diameter and 6500 mm height. Power supply up to 10kA. Magnet protection ancillaries (breaker, resistors and power circuit for 10 kA magnets)
RF SC cavities Test Station and associated infrastructures: vertical cryostat 700 mm diameter and 5500 mm height. Test frequencies 700 MHz, 1.3 GHz and 3.9 GHz
