Auroral electrodynamics at high altitudes using multi-point measurements (Professor Göran Marklund)

Period: 2001-01-01

The project aims at investigating the dynamic and complex interaction processes between the solar wind and the magnetosphere-ionosphere system of Earth, driving aurora and substorms. How the aurora » more
Auroral electrodynamics at mid and low altitudes (Professor Göran Marklund)

How the aurora is formed and maintained is a key issue in auroral physics. This is studied by means of in situ measurements of electric fields, currents, and particles by sounding rockets and mid- and » more
Dependence of high-latitude aurora on interplanetary conditions (Judy Cumnock Blomberg)

High-latitude aurora is known to occur during times of northward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). When the IMF is northward for several hours transpolar arcs, luminous features extending across » more
Development of the VASIMR plasma rocket engine (Professor Nils Brenning)

Period: 2001-01-01 - 2009-12-31

The VASIMR plasma rocket development is a challenging technological and scientific project, run by the Ad Astra company (formerly the Advanced Space Propulsion Laboratory ASPL) at NASA Johnson Space » more
Dynamic charging effects in complex plasmas (Michael Raadu)

Period: 2000-01-01 - 2010-12-31

The dust grains in a complex (dusty) plasma strongly modify the physical behaviour. The origin, composition and physical properties of these grains are of fundamental interest. In space, dust plays an » more
Electrodynamics of theta aurora (Professor Lars Blomberg)

Theta aurora forms during time intervals of northward interplanetary magnetic field. The associated current system may close in the ionosphere in different ways producing either local or global » more
Exploring the Mercury magnetosphere (Professor Lars Blomberg)

  Period: 2004-07-15 - 2021-12-31

We participate in the ESA-JAXA mission BepiColombo to the planet Mercury. The mission comprises two modules, a planetary orbiter (MPO) and a magnetospheric orbiter (MMO). The mission will study the » more
Formation and dynamics of auroral fine structure (Nickolay Ivchenko)

Period: 2005-01-01 - 2008-12-31

Specific goals of this project are: - to analyse high resolution auroral imaging data with simultaneous incoherent scatter radar measurements, in order to enhance understanding of the temporal and » more
Low-frequency waves in Saturn's magnetosphere (Professor Lars Blomberg)

Period: 2006-11-01 - 2012-12-31

We analyse low-frequency wave activity in Saturn's magnetosphere using Cassini RPWS data in collaboration with the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Uppsala. Statistical properties of the waves » more
Penetration of plasma clouds across magnetic barriers (Professor Nils Brenning)

Period: 1998-09-01 - 2009-12-31

The injection of plasma across a magnetic field is important both in connection with fusion plasma experiments and in space physics. The possible mechanisms are also of interest for a general » more
