The ILO supports and coordinates all Laboratory activities involved in industrial applications in different fields, such as:


Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A. supplies advanced instrumentation to other Synchrotron Facilities and Research Laboratories and provides products and services to private companies operating in different fields: mechanics, optics, pharmaceutical, microelectronics, energy, chemistry, agri-foodstuffs etc.



In 2007, in order to supply the world market and, initially, the FERMI project, with the necessary undulators, a partnership of an entrepreneurial nature was established and a spin-off operation (Kyma srl) was created to set up an industrial scale production structure.


Kyma is a company that, after launching the production of undulators for FERMI, will operate in the international market as an expert and qualified supplier of accelerator components.
