The Division of Subatomic, High-Energy and Plasma Physics covers a broad range of research topics. We are inspired by some of the biggest scientific questions: What is our universe made of? What forces govern it? How does it evolve? We also explore applied physics, such as energy-related research, related to phenomena on subatomic scale. More specifically, our education and research projects connect to theoretical and experimental subatomic physics, mathematical and high-energy physics, plasma and fusion physics, and nuclear-physics applications. We take particular pride in the strong involvement of students at various educational levels in our research.
We employ many different research methodologies; from theory and simulation to experiment. Our expertise and dedicated efforts to develop advanced analytical and computational tools is a particular strength that often give our researchers important roles in various international networks. We cultivate and value these partnerships since the questions that we seek answers to often require the combined efforts of international scientific collaborations and the use of major research infrastructures.
All general inquiries should be directed to Professor Christian Forssén Head of Division.
