About Us

The Plasma Physics Research Center (PPRC) is located inside the Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Campus (Science and Research Campus is located in north west of the capital city Tehran on a 5000000 square meters plot of land). The Plasma Physics Research Center is built on a land of 8000 square meters, and consists of two buildings. The research program of the center was inaugurated in 1994 in atomic- molecular physics (plasma, lasers & bio-photonics), solid state physics (surface analysis & thin layers, semiconductors & Nano- technology) and fundamental particle physics. More recently based on the current national projects the center has initiated a number of collaborations with both national and international research centers in various fields. The PPRC aim is to expand and further develop its research activities in science & technology. Therefore it has many on going research projects, in solid state physics as well as atomic and molecular physics. The center is the most advanced of its kind in Iran in plasma physics, training, R&D in nuclear fusion which are at the top of its agenda
 

 Research
  
In recent years the IAU has placed special emphasis on research. The Science and Research Campus of the IAU has put together an invaluable set of research laboratories and looks to the further develop its laboratories. The PPRC under the support of IAU has actively participated in a number of renowned international and national conferences which has resulted in publication of number of internationally indexed articles. Currently the center has a number of on going national and international research project collaboration in progress. Recent statistics indicates an steady upward trend in research and development within the center
 
 
 Teaching

PPRC besides research activities, provides the required teaching as well as training & development in order to benefit from the skilled manpower within the different departments if the center. PPRC was assigned by the ministry of Science & Technology to offer engineering physics program in 2004. It is the first and the only center in the country to offer such a program. The center has enrolled more than 700 under graduate students in the program studying the topics of laser-optics, plasma physics & solid state physics
