Doctoral student in Fusion Plasma Physics

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Electrical Engineering

The research project for the present doctoral position is multi-disciplinary encompassing fusion science and technology: plasma physics, materials science, development and application of reactor wall components and diagnostic tools.

The ultimate goal of fusion research is to construct and operate a power generating system. There are still significant issues to be resolved on the way to a commercial reactor. An important point for detailed investigation is connected to wall materials surrounding hot thermonuclear plasma. The area Plasma – Wall Interactions (PWI) comprises all processes of mass and energy exchange between the fusion plasma and the wall. It is necessary to develop understanding of PWI and to devise methods to control these processes, because material erosion and plasma contamination limit operation of a reactor. The work involves: (a) study of material modification under plasma impact; (b) development and testing of materials under fusion reactor conditions. The project deals with plasma-facing components which undergo modification caused by particle fluxes and resulting heat loads. Physical sputtering, chemical erosion, melting, arcing and brittle destruction are major mechanisms responsible for erosion of materials being in contact with hot plasmas.

The aim of research for this doctoral position is to assess the change in material morphology (structure and composition) and plasma parameters following the exposure of wall components and special probes to plasma in controlled fusion devices (e.g. JET) and/or in simulators of PWI. Examples of materials studied today include carbon fibre composites and heavy metals such as tungsten. The research group at FPP of KTH actively participates in the European fusion programme.  The work is carried out in cooperation with partner institutions (material and fusion science laboratories) from many countries. More information on the European programme can be found on the EUROfusion and other fusion-related web sites.
