Welcome to Aurolab,
the plasma laboratory at the Department of Physics of the University of Tromsø. The laboratory is organized as a part of the Space Physics group. Aurolab facilitates experiments aimed to improve the understanding of plasma phenomena relevant to near-Earth space. It is the only laboratory of its kind in Norway, now located in the new Technology building in the Tromsø main campus.
We offer possibilities for students to perform interesting experimental projects in plasma physics on state-of-the-art equipment. Students will also be introduced to our international research network. There are ample opportunities for post-graduate work in a fast growing European job market in plasma physics research and industrial plasma applications.
