IPP-Summer University for Plasma Physics and Fusion Research

IPP-Summer University for Plasma Physics and Fusion Research

 (Click to view larger version...)
Every summer, the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics in Greifswald, Germany, organizes a one-week summer school in plasma physics for undergraduates.

The course covers the main aspects of plasma physics with emphasis on nuclear fusion:
• basics of plasma physics and nuclear fusion
• kinetic and magneto-hydrodynamic description of a plasma
• concepts and experimental results of tokamak and stellarator configurations
• plasma heating and diagnostics
• plasma-wall interaction and materials research
• ITER and the next steps towards a reactor
• astrophysical plasmas

The lectures—held in English—are designed for physics and engineering students of European universities who have passed their bachelor (undergraduate) courses not yet started or decided their PhD project.

The 2020 edition of the summer school has been cancelled. See all information here.
