Plasma Physics, Lasers and Nuclear Fusion

Welcome to the webpage of the Scientific Area of Plasmas, Lasers and Nuclear Fusion of the Department of Physics of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). The faculty members of our scientific area are actively engaged in education, research and outreach programs in a wide range of topics covered by the fields of plasma physics, lasers and nuclear fusion, both from a fundamental perspective, and from a technological/engineering perspective.

The research of the faculty members is developed at the Institute of Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), a research unit (RU) of IST evaluated as “Exceptional” (2014, the sole RU of IST and the sole RU in Physics to receive this mark) and as “Excellent” (2019 and 2021, when IPFN renewed its contract of Associate Laboratory of FCT).
