  • Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC)
Building 14.14 /
Room 4015
+49 2461/61-1499

Until 2023, the Plasma Simulation and Data Laboratory was 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. It was among the first Simulation Laboratories founded at JSC in 2010. One of its main tasks was 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, e.g. via a visitor programme and workshops
