Department of Fusion Plasma Physics

We focus on research on magnetically confined fusion plasmas. The research is motivated by the potential of fusion to become a clean and sustainable future energy source. The department has a long standing tradition of research on fusion plasmas, initiated by Professor Bo Lehnert. We have in our lab an experimental device, EXTRAP T2R, where some of the research is performed. We also participate in the research at JET (Joint European Torus) , today the world's largest fusion experiment.

On this site you find information about fusion energy and about current activities in Swedish and international fusion research. Students will find information about courses in fusion and plasma physics and suggestions for thesis work.

The Swedish fusion research is part of the European research effort involving the fusion research centres in the European countries. The research is coordinated and partly funded by Euratom.
