PLIONA general assembly

Very Smart, Interesting Person
10th PLIONA general assembly 1 Feb 2018. The next general assembly will take place in Lund in September.

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
