Klara Insulander Björk

Researcher at Subatomic High Energy and Plasma Physics, Department of Physics

My current field of research is plasma physics, and in particular the phenomenon called "electron runaway" which may occur in tokamak plasmas, damaging the tokamak device and thereby representing an obstacle for the realization of fusion power production. I work with theoreticians and experimentalists to compare experimental data with theoretical predictions. In addition to this, I teach in the Engineering Physics program and coordinate a project on e-learning within radiation science.

I have previously worked with different aspects of fission power production; fission reactor physics, manufacture and testing of novel nuclear fuel types and chemical properties of these fuel materials. I have also worked with the establishment and coordination of a national competence center for radiation science (SAINT).
