Welcome to the website of the plasma theory research group at Chalmers University of Technology. We belong to the Division of Subatomic and plasma physics of the Department of Physics.

Upcoming events at Chalmers

George Wilkie, Tim Dubois and Adam Stahl will give talks at the meeting of the plasma physics section of the Swedish Physical Society 27 October, at Chalmers. George will talk about "Effects of turbulence on the distribution of fast particles", Adam will talk about the "Dynamics of fast electrons in plasmas" and Tim will give a presentation on "Laser driven collisionless shock acceleration of protons".


Paul McKenna from University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, will visit Chalmers on 9 November.

Laurent Gremillet from CEA, France, will visit Chalmers 20-24 February 2017 to work on issues of common interest regarding fast electron transport in plasmas.

Outgoing research visits and conference participation

Istvan Pusztai, Evangelos Siminos and Stefan Buller will have oral presentations at the 58th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics, 31 Oct - 4 Nov, San Jose, USA. Evangelos will present Kinetic effects on the transition to relativistic self-induced transparency in laser-driven ion acceleration, Istvan will present Edge rotation as governed by momentum transport due to neutrals and Stefan will present Neoclassical transport in density pedestals with non-trace impurities. In addition, members of our group are co-authors on a contribution with the title Synchrotron and collisional damping effects on runaway electron distributions

Edmund Highcock is invited to give a talk about the impact of plasma flows on turbulence at the 2016 European Fusion Plasma Workshop (this year having the theme "Towards improved plasma performance in ITER and DEMO consistent with few and tolerable disruptions"), The conference will be held in Warsaw 28-30 Nov.

Ola Embréus plans to visit Matt Landreman at University of Maryland 7-18 November.

Adam Stahl, George Wilkie, Edmund Highcock, Stefan Buller and Tünde Fülöp will participate in the RUSA meeting in Uppsala 7-8 December.
