Plasma theory

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


Best PhD student presenter June 23rd
Oskar Vallhagen is one of the winners of the best PhD student presenter's prize at the 10th Runaway Electron Modelling meeting. The prize is sponsored by Journal of Plasma Physics.

Upcoming events

Oskar will go to IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, London between October 16th — 21st. He plans to present a contribution with the title "Runaway electron dynamics in ITER disruptions with shattered pellet injection". Members of our group are also co-authors on contributions by M Lehnen "Physics basis and technology development for the ITER disruption mitigation system", by A Järvinen "Bayesian approach for uncertainty quantification and data-efficient optimization in fusion research", A Fil "Disruption runaway electron generation and mitigation in the spherical tokamaks for energy production" and E Nardon "Modelling of runaway electron dynamics in tokamak disruptions".

István will go to Lund on October 27th. He will be part of the evaluation committee at the PhD defense of Robin Weissenbilder.

István will go to 65th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics, Denver, USA between October 30th — November 3rd. He is invited to give a talk with the title "Runaway electron dynamics in shattered pellet mitigated ITER disruptions":
