Runaway tools

Our research has led to the development of a number of numerical tools that can be used to study runaway electrons, mainly in tokamak plasmas but some also in other plasmas where such particles are present. These numerical tools are described and can be downloaded from this page.

How to find us

The group's offices are on the top (3rd) floor of the Soliden part of the physics building. The address is Fysikgården 1. This map shows various routes to find the place.
