The Institute for Plasma Research in Gandhinagar is a research institute that deals with the research in several branches of Plasma Physics. The level of research varies from basic (part time programs) to highly advanced one such as the Steady State Superconducting Tokamak. The idea of this institute, began in the 1970s when a Physical Research Laboratory was instituted to promote the research on theoretical and experimental plasma physics. The Indian Government took up the proposal and established the IPR in the year 1986. The institute, now, is well known all round the world for its scientific advancements and researching infrastructure.
