Simulation Laboratory Plasma Physics

The Plasma Simulation Lab is a research and support group with expertise in advanced simulation techniques needed for tackling the highly nonlinear, multi-dimensional problems prevalent in contemporary plasma theory. One of its main tasks is to actively engage with national and European plasma groups, helping them to harness the world-class supercomputer facilities available at JSC.


  • High-level support for supercomputing projects at JSC
  • Improving scalability of plasma simulation codes on high-end supercomputers
  • Development of advanced numerical algorithms for kinetic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) modelling of plasmas
  • Hosting of repositories for commonly used codes
  • Community building: visitor programme, workshops
