  1. 1. Space Plasma Dynamics : Instabilities, Coherent Vortices and Covariant Parametrization

    Author : David Sundkvist; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Andris Vaivads; Stuart Bale; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; space physics; plasma; instabilities; turbulence; coherent structures; vortex; self-organization; magnetosphere; waves; electromagnetism; covariant; space instrumentation; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik;

    Abstract : The magnetospheric cusps are two funnel-like regions of Earth's magnetosphere where solar wind plasma can have direct access to the ionosphere. The cusps are very dynamic regions where wave-particle interactions continuously take place and redistribute energy among different particle populations. READ MORE

    Abstract : Here I study the “plasma interactions with icy bodies in the solar system”, that is, my quest to understand the fundamental processes that govern such interactions. By using numerical modelling combined with in situ observations, one can infer the internal structure of icy bodies and their plasma environments. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intense laser-plasma interactions

    Author : Joel Magnusson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radiation reaction; radiation generation; particle-in-cell; plasma; pair production cascades; ion acceleration; laser;

    Abstract : In the interaction of ultra-intense laser fields with matter, the target is rapidly ionized and a plasma is formed. The ability of a plasma to sustain acceleration gradients, orders of magnitude larger than achievable with conventional accelerators, has led to a great interest in laser-driven plasma-based particle and radiation sources, with applications in materials science, biology and medicine.

  4. 4. Plasma-Facing Components in Tokamaks : Studies of Wall Conditioning Processes and Plasma Impact on Diagnostic Mirrors

    Author : Álvaro García Carrasco; Marek Rubel; Marco Cecconello; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasa-wall interactions; wall conditioning; tracers; diagnostic mirrors; ICWC; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Understanding of material migration and its impact on the formation of co-deposited mixed material layers on plasma-facing components is essential for the development of fusion reactors. This thesis focuses on this topic. It is based on experiments performed at JET and TEXTOR tokamaks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical Simulation as a Tool for Studying Waves and Radiation in Space

    Author : Lars Kristen Selberg Daldorff; Bo Thide; Francesco Califano; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; space physics; plasma physics; kinetic plasma; plasma simulations; beam instabilities; Space physics; Rymdfysik;

    Abstract : Plasma physics governs the area of interactions between charged particles. As 99% of the visible universe is in a plasma state, it is an important topic in astronomy and space physics, where we already at an altitude of 60 km reach the plasma environment surrounding our planet in the form of the ionosphere.
