KTH in Stockholm is the largest and oldest technical university in Sweden. No less than one-third of Sweden’s technical research and engineering education capacity at university level is provided by KTH. Education and research spans from natural sciences to all branches of engineering and includes architecture, industrial management and urban planning. There are a total of just over 14,000 first and second level students and more than 1,700 doctoral students. KTH has almost 4,600 employees.
The reactor physics group at the department of physics conducts research on ageing of structural materials in nuclear facilities, on Generation IV reactors for transmutation of nuclear waste, advanced nuclear fuel development and the physics of radiation damage. The group works with both theory and experiment and is located in the AlbaNova University Centre.
KTH manages the task on Nanofeature models of WP5. On the technical and scientific side, KTH works on developing self-consistent mean field theory (SCMF) for self-interstitials in collaboration with CEA and on ab initio parameterisation for the dilute iron alloys of relevance for the project.
|Pär Olsson: PhD
He received his master degree in theoretical physics from Uppsala University in 2001 and his PhD from Uppsala University in 2005, where he worked on modelling and simulation of Fe-Cr alloys for reactor relevant applications. He worked at EDF in France as a research engineer between 2005 and 2010 and he is currently working as an associate professor at KTH. He was task manager in the GETMAT project and was involved in the PERFECT project. He will manage the Nanofeature models task (T5.1) in WP5 of SOTERIA and participate in the work in the same task on ab initio calculations and development of simulation tools for studying kinetic and thermodynamic effects of solute diffusion in RPV alloys. He is co-author of 55 refereed papers (h-index = 21), 11 invited talks, 48 talks in conferences.
