The research programme aims to develop and apply spectroscopic methods and models to
diagnose hot fusion plasmas. The research draws upon results in basic atomic and molecular
physics with wide applications to space and astrophysics. The group has developed and applied
new spectroscopic methods from the X-ray to the visible wavelength region at
fusion experiment EXTRAP T2R at KTH
and the major European fusion experiment
JET in U.K. In combination with atomic
data from collision
experiments in the laboratory and at large facilities, new models have been
developed for interpretation of spectral emission from hot plasmas. The group
participates in the ADAS
consortium for the modelling of radiation processes in the plasma.
The work is highly international and interdisciplinary and is part of the
European EURATOM, EFDA
