## About the Institute for Advanced Physical Studies

The **Institute for Advanced Physical Studies **is a research center for studies in physics and related fields. It is an independent scientific institution which is closely allied with the research and educational activities at the New Bulgarian University as well as with other research centers. Progress in science often happens at the border of different specialized areas of competence. Hense IAPS performs interdisciplinary research on topics which follow ideas from physics, chemistry and computer science. This is achieved in close collaboration between different research groups and by joining efforts with external to IAPS organizations. The obtained results from some investigations in research areas as laser physics, nuclear physics, computing and others are intended for implementation in the design and fabrication of practical devices in partnership with technological companies.
