Visit KTH's labs (14:00)
We invite you to visit KTH’s exciting research environments! During KTH’s lab tours, you will get the chance to visit and learn about research conducted in our labs, see unique facilities and try on-going projects. Welcome!
Time: Wed 2020-10-07 14.00 - 15.30
Location: KTH Campus
KTH invites interested parties to visit our exciting and world-leading research environments during “lab tours”. A lab tour is one and a half hours long and consists of visits to two or three different labs. There are two tours to choose from, one in English and one in Swedish, each will be given twice 7 Octotober.
Each lab tour only has 10 places, so make sure to register as soon as possible!
Registration will open shortly.
Note that you may only register to one lab tour each day.
There are only 10 spots per tour. Note: If you have sign up but are not able to attend, you must unregister by e-mail to open your spot up for someone else. No-shows will be charged with a fee.
Information regarding the event, such as starting point, will be sent to you in a separate e-mail after registration. The event will follow recommended guidelines and restrictions for events during covid-19. Information on this topic will be given at the beginning of each tour.
Program and lab
Tour 1 (English)
PDC Center for High Performance Computing
Visit the most powerful supercomputer in the Nordic countries! During the tour, you will get insights in how it is built and used for research. PDC Center for High Performance Computing is one of six super computer
Fusion Experiment EXTRAP T2R
The EXTRAP T2R is a major experimental facility for fusion research. Here researchers study alternative magnetic confinement configurations which have the potential to produce fusion plasmas. Some experimental areas include plasma wall interaction and development of spectroscopic diagnostics for evaluation of plasma parameters
In this lab, researchers develop measurements of electromagnetic antennas from 2-40GHz. It is an anechoic chamber, but there is no electromagnetic echo in the room at those frequencies.
Tour 2 (Swedish)
Sustainable Power Lab
Labbet bedrivs forskning och utbildning inom ämnet elkraftteknik. Här pågår prototyputveckling och test av kraftelektronik, elmaskiner och drivsystem.
Här ingår också högspänningslabbet, där man bedriver forskning med fokus på högspänning, isolationsmaterial och komponenter i elkraftssystem. I labbet finns utrustning för blixturladdningar, trådlös kraftöverföring och elektrostatiska experiment.
Smart Mobility Lab & ITRL
Besöket inkluderar både Smart Mobility Lab (SML) och Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL).
På SML arbetar man med utveckling och tester av lösningar för intelligenta transportsystem och självkörande bilar med hjälp av simulering och modeller. ITRL arbetar KTH tillsammans med Scania med att utveckla och demonstrera nya hållbara transportsystem.
KTH's lab tours are part of Nobel Calling, a project led by the Nobel Foundation. The purpose of Nobel Calling is to gather activities within research and science in Stockholm during the week in October when the Nobel prizes are announced.
