Laboratory experiments are made both in-house, and in devices located at institutions abroad. In both cases, the projects are run in cooperation between researchers at KTH and external cooperation partners.
In-house experiments, space oriented
- The Green Tank is a flexible device, with different discharge modes and magnetic topologies.
- The Triple Plasma Machine is used for studies of double layers at low neutral densities.
External experiments, space oriented
- The Microgravity plasma experiment on the International Space Station, ISS.
- The Lindberg Plasma Gun, in 2006 moved from KTH to West Virginia University, USA.
- The VASIMR magnetoplasma rocket prototype in Houston.
External experiments, applied plasma physics
- The HIPIMS high power sputtering magnetron at Linköping.
- Facilities at FOI, the Swedish Defence Reseach Agency, Grindssjön:
- Pulsed Explosive Driven Power Generators.
- Virtual Cathode Oscillators for microwave production.
