RUSSIAN FEDERAL NUCLEAR CENTER - All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics RFNC-VNIIEF is a large scientific-technical Russian Center capable to solve the most complex tasks of scientific and applied directions. The Institute was established in 1946 with the aim to create the national nuclear weapons. In 1990 the activities on conversion and international collaboration began.
RFNC-VNIIEFhas at its disposal: • diverse experimental, testing and industrial base including a gas dynamic complex, irradiating plants, nuclear reactors, accelerators, laser plants, complexes for mechanical, thermal and climatic testing for different products and devices; • mathematical base with the appropriate software being one of the most powerful in Russia; • sufficient amount of high qualified scientists and specialists in different fields of science and technique.
TECHNOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT OF RFNC-VNIIEF Main Tasks: • investigation of material properties; • development of new materials with specified properties; • development of advanced technological processes. Department Structure: • 12 scientific-technical laboratories; • 3 divisions; • experimental mechanical base (shop); • necessary supporting services. Amount: more than 500 persons including 340 scientific and engineer-technical employees.
