Division of Space and Plasma Physics
The vast majority of our universe is in plasma state. Our research deals with plasma physical processes in space and in the laboratory.
Division of Space and Plasma Physics is part of the Department of Electric Engineering in School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science .
Our research areas cover space, fusion, laboratory, and fundamental plasma physics. We study physical processes in the ionospheres and magnetospheres of Earth and other planets, solar wind, space around comets, and planetary moons. We contribute hardware to international and national space missions, both spacecraft and rockets. We study the physics of plasma-wall interaction in fusion plasma devices, magnetron sputtering and other applied plasma physics topics. See publications of our researchers.
We participate in the education program at all levels. We offer bachelor's and master's thesis projects closely related to our ongoing research activities. We participate in KTH Master's Programme in Electromagnetic, Fusion and Space Engineering . The division hosts the Student Workshop . We are affiliated with KTH Space Centre .
