Our goal is to focus on competence, knowledge and collaboration in order to play an important, demonstrable role in social development. Our role has a local, national and global perspective, and the overall goal is to contribute to a genuine conversion of society in accordance with our vision for Chalmers – a sustainable future.

Research:

The research programme is concentrated on the study of stability and transport in impure plasmas. Part of the work is focused on theoretical modelling compact plasma based ion sources. The other part of the work is concentrated on transport driven by microinstabilities and fast particle effects in fusion plasmas.

The aim is to develop improved theoretical models within these area, to be able to explain experimentally observed phenomena in existing devices and to make predictions on the implications for the design of future ones.
