During our visits, we will be offered a large number of talks, as in the 2015 edition. In particular, we expect to have overviews of all the major experiments running at the different laboratories. It will be an undoubtedly rich experience. We will provide further details on our speakers as they become available.
The University of Florence is the biggest in Tuscany. Its new physics deparment, in a scientific campus outside the city, is strongly linked with other institutions. Among its wide array of research fields, a large matter physics group studies mainly biophotonics and quantum technologies.
The University of Pisa is one of the most ancient universities in Italy and Europe. In its facilities, among others, studied the Physics Nobel laureates Enrico Fermi and Carlo Rubbia. It is consistedly ranked among the world's best universities in the field. We will visit the laboratories dedicated to optics, lasers and crystal growth.
