Lumino Project

Loghi Regione per Lumino


ALMA Sistemi Srl, in cooperation with IRSPS Srl , has been selected by Lazioinnova (Regione Lazio agency addressed to innovation) for the design and development of advanced and portable instrumentation for rock and sediment dating up to 1 million of years. ALMA Sistemi, proposal has been selected in the competitive invitation to tender issued by Lazioinnova “Bando Aerospazio” and the proposal named “LUMINO” (this is the project acronym) has ranked in 3° position out of 28 funded projects. The instrument technology is based on “Luminescence dating” where the radiation dose emitted by the samples (illuminated by specific irradiation units) is detected, measured and converted in absolute age. The portable instrumentation has direct application in planetary exploration specifically related to Mars where a similar instrumentation can be hosted by a rover as well as for Earth application in geology, archaeology and as portable instrumentation for quick radiation dosimeter in case of nuclear accidents.
