Lab Tour

Get the chance to visit several of the different research environments located at KTH Campus!

Time: Mon 2017-10-16 16.30 - 18.00

Location: KTH Campus

Now we open up several of the fascinating research environments located at KTH Campus. You will learn more about the ongoing research at the different laboratories, see the facilities as well as try some of the projects that the laboratories are working with.

The lab tours will be arranged during three afternoons. Each lab tour includes visits of three different laboratories for 1.5 hours. One lab tour each day will be held in English. For more information about the Swedish speaking lab tours please visit the calendar in Swedish. All the lab tours require registration.

Please notice that each lab tour only takes 15 places so make sure to register as soon as possible! Because there are limited places we would like you to unregister if you get prevented so that someone else can get chance for the lab tour. Information regaring starting point and your group number will be sent to you in a separate email after registration.

More information about the laboratories

1. 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.
2. The Department of Robotics
The Department of Robotics focuses on a number of research directions including Mobile Robotics, Planning and Decision-Making, Grasping and Manipulation, Active Perception, Social Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Robots are expected to act in the environments built for humans, hence they should posses some of the human capabilities in terms of locomotion (e.g. to handle stairs), dexterity (e.g. to manipulate objects and tools made by and for humans) and reasoning (e.g. to exchange information with humans in a natural manner).
3. Anechoic Chamber
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.
