Joint Institute for High Temperatures of the Russian Academy of Sciences is a leading research institute in the fields of high energy densities physics, shock wave physics, thermodynamics databases, numerical simulations and cluster computing, dusty plasma, applied electrodynamics, combustion, green power and many others.
The history of the Joint Institute for High Temperatures of the Russian Academy of Sciences begins in 1960, the year when the High Temperature Laboratory of the USSR Academy of Sciences was set up. During fifty years that passed since that time, the Institute grew up from a small research laboratory at the Moscow Institute of Power Engineering into a major institu- tion of the Division of Energetics, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanics, and Control Systems of the Russian Academy of Sciences – the leading scientific center of the country in the field of power generation and thermophysics (including the region of high energy densities).
Since January of 2007, the Joint Institute for High Temperatures of the Russian Academy of Sciences is headed by V.E. Fortov, Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, renowned scientist in the field of shock waves and detonation, plasma physics, and physical mechanics.
