The National Institute of Research and Development for Technical Physics (Institutul Naţional de Cercetare-Dezvoltare pentru Fizică Tehnică - IFT Iaşi) develops basic and applied research in the field of advanced materials with novel structures and properties, devices (e.g., sensors, transducers, actuators, measuring systems) based on such materials, new preparation methods and characterisation techniques, including non-destructive evaluation and magnetometry, electrical and magnetic separation, special materials and devices with applications in engineering, medicine and biotechnology.
The National Institute of Research and Development for Technical Physics (NIRDTP) is part of the national institutes of R&D network under the coordination of the Ministry of Education and Scientific Research - National Authority for Scientific Research and Innovation.
The main scientific and technological research activities are focused on:
- Fundamental research: new models and phenomena, new theoretical aspects;
- Applied research: new materials and applications, new R&D equipment;
- Technological research: novel technologies for manufacturing new materials, including nanomaterials and nanostructured/nanocomposite materials; design and fabrication of new devices and technological equipment;
- Laboratory-scale production: materials, devices, systems and equipment for both laboratory research and small-scale production activities.
