Organized at a leading site for research in plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion, the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) in Oxfordshire, UK, the Culham Plasma Physics Summer School aims to provide an introduction to the fundamental principles of plasma physics, together with a broad understanding of its fields of application. No preceding knowledge of plasma physics is assumed but familiarity with electromagnetism and applied mathematics at first-degree level will be helpful. Previous schools have attracted students from more than 50 different countries.
Lecturers for the Summer School are drawn from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and leading laboratories and university groups in magnetic and laser confinement fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas and low temperature plasmas from the UK and abroad.
CCFE Fusion Association is funded jointly by the UK Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and by EUROfusion, with support from Fusenet. Students must be over 18 to attend the summer school and generally will be in their final year of undergraduate or first year of post graduate study. All classes are in English.
The next Summer School will take place from 20 to 31 July 2020.
