The division of Fusion Plasma Physics is one of sixteen divisions at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. We conduct research and education within the fields of fusion and plasma physics.
We focus on controlled thermonuclear research, leading to a potentially clean and economically viable future energy source. Our main themes of research are both theoretical and experimental. The in-house reversed-field pinch experimental device EXTRAP-T2R is a valuable asset.
The division has a long standing tradition of research on basic plasma physics, initiated by Prof. Bo Lehnert. We have a major fusion experiment, the EXTRAP T2R reversed-field pinch, where most of the experimental research is performed. The division offers both bachelor, master and Ph.D. courses, and we collaborate with teachers and students at primary and secondary schools.
The division of Fusion plasma physics is part of the (historical) Alfvén Laboratory.
The research and education carried out at the division of Fusion Plasma Physics is described in our annual reports:
