The IJCLab physics laboratory at CNRS reached out to SIAD during the coronavirus crisis to ensure that it could still receive a constant supply of the gas, which is a fundamental element for the operation of highly advanced technologies.

“For some years we have been engaged in a number of physical experiments on neutrinos with a team of American, Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian and Italian scientists in underground laboratories,” explained Andrea Giuliani, Research Director of the IJCLab at CNRS.
