About Space and Plasma Physics
The Division of Space and Plasma Physics is part of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. You find us at the KTH Campus at Valhallavägen in Stockholm.
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.
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.
Space and Plasma Physics department is part of KTH Space Centre.
