Simulation and Data Laboratory Plasma Physics

  • Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS)
  • Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC)
Building 14.14 /
Room 4015
+49 2461/61-1499

The Plasma Simulation and Data Laboratory 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, e.g. via a visitor programme and workshops
