The National Laboratory of Frascati (LNF) are the first structure ever built in Italy for nuclear and sub-nuclear physics research with particle accelerators and the largest laboratory of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN).

Here in the early 1960s the matter-antimatter collision technique has been invented, and it is now exploited in DAFNE, the Italian electron-positron circular collider. DAFNE is a very intense source of particles containing the strange quark, whose decays are analysed by the KLOE detector to perform studies on rare physics phenomena. Future acceleration technologies are developed at SPARC, where intense electron beams and lasers are combined to produce exceptionally high electric fields. The Laboratories are also involved in the developing and construction of the detectors equipping the LHC experiments at CERN, as well as the analysis of their data.
