The research activities at the INFN-Laboratori Nazionali del Sud.
The INFN-Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (INFN-LNS) represent a well-established international research reality of INFN. The research activities of INFN-LNS are mainly devoted to the study of nuclear reactions at low and intermediate energies, relevant for fundamental nuclear physics and nuclear and particle astrophysics. Pivotal research activity is also in multidisciplinary fields such as accelerator physics, plasma physics, nuclear physics for medicine, biology and cultural heritage, environmental and radioactive waste monitoring. The INFN-LNS house two accelerators, the Tandem MP and the superconducting Cyclotron that can deliver light- and heavy-ion beams in the regions of low and medium energy. In June 2020, the accelerators have been turned off to start the upgrade of the entire infrastructure, mainly aimed at the production of high-intensity light-ion beams ($12
