Dafne Picture

Dafne is an electron - positron accelerator and collider, and it is one of the biggest colliders in Italy. It is located in the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (National laboratories of Frascati) of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (National Institute for Nuclear Phisics), near Rome.

I took this photo more than a year ago, during a stage. Dafne was off, obviously ^_^

Dafne is now a little modified.

Dafne is a mythological name (it's the Italian spelling for Daphne), but it is also an acronym and means "Double annular factory [for] nice experiments". The correct spelling is DAΦNE, with a greek phy, because Dafne produces, with the electron - positron collision, a Phi particle, that splits in two kaons.
