The ICTP MLAB promotes interdisciplinary experimental activities based on advanced instruments and methods developed in basic physics research. The aim of this programme is to stimulate synergic cooperation with other research laboratories in the Trieste area as well as at national and international level.
MLAB activities include scientific instrumentation development, novel detectors and electronic circuits design and prototyping and x-ray imaging and analysis. The goal is also to involve visiting scientists and PhD students from developing countries in hands-on activities. The knowledge and experience gained through experimental training enhances their professional autonomy and at the same time strengthens their ability to conduct interdisciplinary research in cooperation with heterogeneous research teams.
The MLab Laboratory carries out research in the following main disciplines:
