The Institute for Plasma Research (IPR) was established in the year 1986. The Institute for Plasma Research is an autonomous physics research institute, which is located in India. The Institute is involved in research in the aspects like Plasma science including basic plasma physics, research on magnetically confined hot plasmas and plasma technologies for applications in industries. “Department of Atomic Energy” is the main department in which the institute is mainly funded. The institute plays a major role in scientific and technical roles in Indian partnership in the international fusion energy initiative(ITER). ITER is a part of Indigo consortium for research on gravitational waves. It is affiliated to Department of Atomic Energy. The Institute for Plasma Research is located in between the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. Plasma Physics program (PPP) was initiated by the Government of India in 1982 for research on magnetically confined high temperature plasmas. Later on under the Department of Science and Technology in 1986, Plasma Physics program was evolved in to the autonomous Institute for Plasma Research. After the establishment of the institute in journals several research papers has been published. Institute for Plasma Research has active collaboration with the Institutes or Universities like Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Bombay; Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology, Indore; Institute for Plasma Research, Gandhinagar; Kyushu University, Fukuoda, Japan; Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad; Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany; Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Calcutta; St.Andrews University, UK; Metropolitan Institute of Technology, Tokyo; UN=niversity of Bayreuth, Germany; University of Kyoto, Japan. Some of the staff members are Dr. Shashank Chaturvedi-Director; Professor. Amita Das-Dean; Dr.D. Chenna Reddy- Asst Dean for Infrastructure. Facilitation Centre for Industrial Plasma Technologies (FCIPT) is linked with Institute for Plasma Research(IPR). For the generation of advanced and non conventional plasma based technologies for material processing and environmental remediation, the Knowledge- base in plasma sciences and associated technologies are exploited. The major direction of the institute is in magnetic confinement fusion and plasma assisted material processing. The development of Plasma processing technologies is taken up by Facilitation Centre for Industrial Plasma Technologies(FCIPT) from concept and promotes awareness of technology through Technology transfer, Newsletters and Direct marketing. Institute for Plasma Research is recognized internationally for its contributions fundamentally and in applied research in plasma physics and associated technologies. The Institute for Plasma Research has an engineering and scientific manpower of 200 with core competency in theoretical plasma physics, superconducting magnets and cryogenics, computer modeling, ultra high vaccum, pulsed power, microwave and RF, computer-based control and data acquisition and industrial, strategic and environmental plasma applications.
