INFLPR

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.

Prof. Ion N. Mihailescu, FELLOW OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY

Prof. Ion N. Mihailescu, Senior Scientific Researcher, 1st degree, Laser-Surface-Plasma Interactions Laboratory, Lasers Department from National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics, received one of the most important awards in Optics at international level, he was elected "FELLOW OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY (OSA) for outstanding contributions to the field of Optics of high pulsed energy laser radiation, with groundbreaking applications in nano-biomedicine, chemistry, and metalurgy".

Tools made of light

The inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics. Extremely small objects and incredibly rapid processes are now being seen in a new light. Advanced precision instruments are opening up unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications.

Arthur Ashkin invented optical tweezers that grab particles, atoms, viruses and other living cells with their laser beam fingers.

Joint ISCP & INDLAS Conference is granted by The Optical Society (OSA), The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), the Young Minds Project of the European Physical Society (EPS), and INFLPR.

International Student Conference on Photonics - ISCP
Our aim is to bring together MSc and PhD students, as well as postdoctoral fellows carrying out research in the field of optics and photonics in Romania and the world, thus providing the environment required for sharing and promoting their scientific results and exchanging ideas whilst facilitating networking with their peers, young and senior scientists. We scheduled student technical talks and poster presentations, lectures of distinguished invited speakers as well as social activities.
