Research activity

I am involved in the research activities of the Genoa section of the INFN. In particular, I deal with superconducting magnets for particle accelerators, studying both structural and mechanical aspects, as well as field quality and protection from quenches. The main tool I use in my research is the finite element calculation, through software such as Roxie, Ansys, Comsol or Opera. The projects in which I am currently involved are mainly two:

  • High Luminosity-LHC, in which I am taking part in the realization of the D2 separation and recombination dipole for the convergence of the LHC particle beam to the interaction point.
  • FalconD, which is a project that studies the 16 Tesla dipole for the curvature of the beam for the Future Circular Collider which includes the creation of a prototype with intermediate performances.
