Outgoing research visits and conference participation

Linnea, Oskar, Klara and Mathias will visit the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics to take part in on-site modelling activities of runaway experiments at the end of February (Linnea and Mathias 18 Feb-1 March, Oskar 18-22 Feb and Klara 25 Feb-1 March).

Tünde will visit Umeå University and give a talk with the title "Create and control beams in plasmas" 20 February.

Longqing, Istvan, Andréas and Tünde will participate in the NORDITA programme about Solar Helicity and Observations: Implications for Space Weather and Dynamo Theory 4-8 March in Stockholm.

Linnea and Mathias will visit EPFL in to work on runaway modelling with Joan Decker. Linnea will visit 14-22 March and Mathias 14 March to 5 April.

The last PLIONA general assembly will take place 24-25 April at Chalmers.

Members of the group will participate in the Nordic Fusion Research Meeting in Copenhagen 11-12 June.

Tünde will participate in the JPP Editorial Board meeting in Berlin 17-19 June.

Tünde and Linnea plans to participate in the Theory and Simulation of Disruptions workshop, Princeton 5-7 August.

Linnea plans to participate in the IAEA Energetic Particle meeting 2-6 September.

Mathias, István and Tünde will participate in the European Fusion Theory Conference in Ghent 7-10 October.


Yves Peysson from CEA Cadarache will visit 8 April to 27 September.

Per Helander from IPP Greifswald will visit 22-26 July.

Joan Decker from EPFL will visit 2 weeks in August.

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.
