Core Program 2016-2017

Core Program name:

Advanced research on laser - plasma - radiation - space domain

Acronym: LAPLAS IV
Contract number: 4N/2016
Contracting Authority: National Authority for Scientific Research and Innovation, NASRI
Contractor: National Research and Development Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics, INFLPR

The goal of the program: The LAPLAS IV program aims to conduct fundamental and applicative research in priority areas established by SNCDI 2014-2020 (eco-nano-technologies and advanced materials, space and security, health), in the areas of competence of INFLPR, in order to ensure an increased competivity of the Romanian economy through innovation, the increase of the Romanian contribution to the progress of knowledge and of the role of science in solving society problems.

Program duration: 2016-2017

Program objectives:

  1. Objective 1 INFLPR: “Advanced research using lasers, plasma and radiations dedicated to priority domains of the intelligent specialization and public interest areas”

Within this overall objective the following specific objectives are found, appropriate for the projects proposed for funding through core program:

  1. The study of the interaction phenomena among the matter in all aggregation states and ultraintense electromagnetic fields applied simultaneous with extreme temperatures and/or irradiation with charged particles.
  2. Synthesis, processing and characterization of micro and nano-structures and nanomaterials with new compositional, structural or functional properties conducted by laser techniques, plasma or radiation for applications in photonics, chemistry, micro- optofluidics and high-tech industries.
  3. Multidisciplinary studies based on laser and plasma techniques for the development of biomaterials and functionalized medicine, medical devices, diagnostics applications and for the pollution reduction.
  4. Applied laser, plasma and radiation research for advanced materials development in order to use them in the new emerging technologies in the fields of energy, environment, health, space and security.
  1. Objective 2 ISS: Fundamental, applied research and specialized intelligence in science and space technology

Within this overall objective the following specific objectives are found, appropriate for the projects proposed for funding through core program:
