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.

Very Smart, Interesting Person
Plasma Theory group in May 2018

Upcoming events

Mathias will have his Licentiate seminar on 1 February 10am in PJ. Discussion leader will be Basilio Esposito, ENEA.

New people

Klara Insulander-Björk joined the group from January to work on runaway electron modelling.

Outgoing research visits and conference participation

Linnea, Oskar and Mathias will visit the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics to take part in on-site modelling activities of runaway experiments 17-28 February.

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.


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

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.
