Swiss Plasma Center Mission

The Swiss Plasma Center is one of the world’s leading fusion research laboratories. Through a wide range of research programs, all connected to education and training at different levels, we work to advance our understanding of the physics of plasmas and develop fusion as an energy source.

Simons Foundation funds collaboration on stellarators


The Swiss Plasma Center participates in an international collaboration, funded by the Simons Foundation, to unveil the optimal magnetic configurations of stellarators so that their performances are similar to those of tokamaks - while re
