A centre of excellence among Italian and international universities, the school has around 65 teachers, post docs and PhD students, and is located in Trieste, in a campus of more than 10 hectares with wonderful views over the Gulf of Trieste. SISSA hosts a very high-ranking, large and multidisciplinary scientific research output. The scientific papers produced by its researchers are published in high impact factor, well-known international journals, and in many cases in the world's most prestigious scientific journals such as Nature and Science. Over students have so far started their careers in the field of mathematics, physics and neuroscience research at SISSA. Visit www.

Pulsed power is the science and technology of accumulating energy over a relatively long period of time and releasing it very quickly, thus increasing the instantaneous power. Energy is typically stored within electrostatic fields capacitors , magnetic fields inductors , as mechanical energy using large flywheels connected to special-purpose high-current alternators , or as chemical energy high-current lead-acid batteries , or explosives. By releasing the stored energy over a very short interval a process that is called energy compression , a huge amount of peak power can be delivered to a load. For example, if one joule of energy is stored within a capacitor and then evenly released to a load over one second, the average power delivered to the load would only be 1 watt. However, if all of the stored energy were released within one microsecond , the average power over one second would still be one watt, but the instantaneous peak power would be one megawatt , a million times greater. Pulsed power technology is used in radar , particle accelerators , ultrastrong magnetic fields , fusion research, electromagnetic pulses , and high-power pulsed lasers.
