The Swiss Plasma Center is one of the world’s leading fusion research laboratories. Through a wide range of research programs, all connected to education and training at different levels, we work to advance our understanding of the physics of plasmas and develop fusion as an energy source.
Swiss Plasma Center trains researchers to harness the sun's energy
Holder of a recent PHD from the EPFL Swiss Plasma Center, Riccardo Agnello is now working for the nuclear fusion reactor ITER. The Swiss Plasma Center is making a major contribution to this enormous international project, which holds out great hope for clean, abundant energy without long-term radioactive waste.
World's largest nuclear fusion reactor ITER begins assembly phase
The world's largest nuclear fusion reactor ITER is now being assembled in the South of France. This major international scientific project is followed up at the EPFL Swiss Plasma Center, one of the world’s top research labs on nuclear fusion.
Rogério Jorge gets the Physics Doctoral Thesis Award
Rogério Jorge got the award for his thesis entitled ‘A moment-based model for plasma dynamics at arbitrary collisionality’ supervised by Prof. Paolo Ricci at the Swiss Plasma Center and Prof. Nuno Loureiro at the MIT and at the University of Lisbon.
