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.

Upcoming events

NORDITA scientific program Istvan is one of the coordinators of the NORDITA program ["Magnetic field evolution in low density or strongly stratified plasmas"](, that will take place 16 May - 7 June in Stockholm.

Mathias Hoppe from EPFL will visit between May 30th — June 3rd.

MSc presentation Esmée Berger will present her MSc thesis with the title "Runaway dynamics in reactor scale spherical tokamak disruptions" on 10 June 14:30-15:30 in the PJ seminar room and on zoom.

MSc presentation Hannes Bergström and Peter Halldestam will present their MSc thesis with the title "Optimization of tokamak disruption scenarios: avoidance of runaway electrons and excessive wall loads" on 10 June 13:15-14:15 in the PJ seminar room and on zoom.

Plenary talk at the EPS Plasma Conference 2022 Tünde is invited to give a plenary talk with the title "Modelling electron runaway in cooling fusion plasmas" at the [48th European Conference on Plasma Physics (2022)](

Oral presentations at the EPS Plasma Physics conference István Pusztai and Andréas Sundström will give oral presentations at the [48th European Conference on Plasma Physics (2022)]( István will talk about ["Runaway dynamics in disruptions with current relaxation events"]( Andréas will present ["Looking into solid-density plasmas using attosecond XUV dispersion"](
