National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics (NILPRP) - Romania


The National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics is involved in theoretical and applied research in the fields of: lasers, plasma physics, and particle accelerators, with major applications in medicine, environment, new materials, industrial metrology, and new processing technologies. The Institute was partner in more than 20 European Union funded projects (FP5, FP6, FP7, EUREKA, COST, the EU’s Fusion Program) as well as NATO Science for Peace and reintegration grants. The Institute staff has over 600 papers published in referred journal and hundreds of conference contributions. The Laser Metrology and Standardization Laboratory, department in the Institute, is under accreditation as a ISO 17025 testing and calibration laboratory for laser and optical fiber – based products. In the last seven years the Laboratory run several research contracts for the EU' Fusion Programme, by performing tests of optoelectronic components and optical fibres under different types of irra­di­a­tions. Through its Centre for Science Education and Training – CSET (http://​education.​inflpr.​ro), the Laboratory coordinates the national educa­tional network "Hands-on Science – Romania", part of the International Association "Hands-on Science".
