Division of Space and Plasma Physics
Our research deals with plasmas in space as well as in the laboratory. The vast majority of our universe is plasma. The only (although important) exception is cold solid bodies like planets, comets, and asteroids. Thus, plasma physics has universal applications.
We play an active role in a number of international space missions, building instruments, planning instrument operations, and analysing data. Research in fundamental plasma physics, as well as into aspects related to fusion and laboratory plasmas is also conducted here. See recent publications by our division.
We participate in the education programme both at the MSc and PhD level. At the MSc level a number of courses are given and MSc thesis projects are offered, often closely related to on-going research activities. We participate in KTH Master's Programme in Electrophysics. The department hosts the Student Workshop .
The Division of Space and Plasma Physics is part of the KTH Space Centre and the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science .
