Institute 3

The National Institute for Laser, Plasma & Radiation Physics (INFLPR) is an independent, national importance research institution established by the Government of Romania. INFLPR was founded in 1977, with the mission to advance the knowledge in several strategic areas of the sciences and technologies related to laser, plasma, and radiation physics. In 1996 INFLPR was reorganized to include the Institute of Space Sciences (ISS).

The institute employs 447 researchers and administrative staff to conduct frontier research ranging from basic photonic materials and high power lasers, nanomaterials and nanotechnologies, quantum dots and information technologies, plasma physics and X-ray microtomography to industrial photonics, biophotonics and plasma coatings. ISS branch conducts research on astrophysics, space engineering and gravitation.

INFLPR is pursuing advanced scientific research funded by national and international agencies, private institutions and enterprises.

INFLPR is currently a member of the EURATOM association, a partner in the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI), partner in LASERLAB EUROPE, ALICE, and a leader in many projects funded by the EU, NATO, and other international organizations.

INFLPR's governing body is the Board of Trustees, which is assisted by the INFLPR Director and Board of Directors, and by a Scientific Advisory Board.

The Institute currently consists of six large research departments, the Center for Science Education and Training and ISS branch.

The 5-th LASER IGNITION CONFERENCE 2017 - LIC ’17 – 20-23 June 2017, Hotel NOVOTEL Bucharest City Centre, Bucharest, ROMANIA


LASER IGNITION CONFERENCE is an international forum for discussion on various aspects of laser-induced ignition, including novel giant-pulse micro-lasers, measurements and characterisation of plasma induced by laser ignition, new phenomena of laser breakdown or advanced combustion systems, packing of laser systems for harsh combustion environments and their applications. The purpose of this meeting is to share information on laser ignition and related sciences and technologies. The conference will be held at Hotel Novotel Bucharest City Centre, Calea Victoriei 37B, Bucharest, Romania, on June 20-23th, 2017 with the sponsorship from the European Union, the Micro Solid-State Photonics Group of the Laser Society of Japan and in cooperation with Optical Society of America and several academic societies and associations.

10-th International Conference on Photoexcited Processes and Applications (ICPEPA-10), August 29 – September 2, 2016, Brasov, Romania


The topics range from fundamental laser‐material interactions, theory and modeling to applications with nanoparticles and nanophotonics as well as photoexcitations. The conference intends to create an atmosphere for scientific presentations at the forefront of the field and an informal exchange of ideas in a relaxing environment. Peer-reviewed papers submitted at the conference will be published in a Special Issue of an international Journal.
