Introduction of Institute of Fluid Physics


   Institute of Fluid Physics (IFP), the No.1 Institute of China Academy of Engineering Physics, is founded in Beijing in 1958. IFP moved from Haiyan, Qinghai to Jiange, Sichuan in 1970, from Jiange to Science City of Mianyang, Sichuan in 1990, and was formally denominated as Institute of Fluid Physics, CAEP.

    IFP is engaged primarily in nuclear weapon related hydrodynamics experiments and relevant diagnostics technology, R&D of high-tech weapon and warhead of advanced conventional arms, dual-use technologies and their commercialization. Fields of research of IFP range over detonation and shock wave physics, pulsed power technology, accelerator physics, optics and applied electronics, high power laser and matter interactions, computational physics and mechanics, et al. IFP possesses of some large scientific research facilities, such as several indoor and outdoor detonation test sites, high speed and ultra-high speed series of light-gas gun, Dragon series of linear induction accelerators, Z-pinch facilities, and relevant diagnostics technologies. In the past several decades, IFP has made many prominent and profound contributions to China¡¯s nuclear weapon, high-tech weapon¡¯s R&D, and the developments of national defense technologies; IFP was conferred with more than six hundreds of science and technology achievement awards, published over twenty science and technology books; IFP has fostered a large group of eminent scientific researchers, including three Academicians.

   IFP has more than 750 staffs, of which over 160 researchers have senior professional titles, over 280 researchers have Master or PhD degrees. At present, IFP holds privileges to grant Master and PhD degree in six specialties, engineering mechanics, fluid mechanics, condensed state physics, nuclear technology and application, pulsed power technology, and optics; IFP also holds three post-doctoral stations in three fields: nuclear science and technology, physics, and mechanics. IFP has several affiliates, including ¡°Laboratory for Shock Wave and Detonation Physics Research¡±, which is the first Key Laboratory for National Defense Science and Technology, and ¡°Test and Evaluation Center of Detonation and Shock Parameters¡±, and ¡°Chinese Pulsed Power Society¡±; IFP also publishes two Chinese nucleus journals: Explosion and Shock Waves and Chinese Journal of High Pressure Physics.

   To further expand our cause, IFP is actively pursuing the development of dual-use technologies and their commercialization to serve the nation¡¯s economy while securely accomplishing the research and production tasks demanded from the state. IFP has earned its own characteristics and preponderance in the R&D of special power supply, pulsed X-ray source, detonation container and laser interference speedometer, and their commercialization has shown earlier outcomes.

   Brilliant achievements, done yesterday; splendid future, forging today! In the journey to our future, the staffs of IFP will progressively strive for the aim of building a first-class institute in the world with fresh new attitude, solidarity, high-spirited vigor and adherence to the value of ¡°Preciseness and Faith of Truth, Innovation and Transcendence¡±.
