Organized by the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in cooperation with the School of Physical Sciences of Sokendai (the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Japan), the Polytechnic schools on plasma physics and controlled fusion are suitable as the first plasma physics course or an add-on course for senior undergraduate students and graduate students.
The primary objective of the courses is to present the fundamentals of plasma physics, in particular highlighting high-temperature plasma physics and its applications to controlled fusion. The course begins with an overview of plasma phenomena and their applications. The lectures cover Coulomb collisions, single particle motion in magnetic field, magnetic traps, principles of controlled fusion, plasma heating and diagnostics.
The next course will be offered from 27 January to 7 February 2020. Find out more here.
Polytechnic also offers an Energy Summer School on behalf of the Institute of Energy and Transport Systems. The next course will take place from 20 July to 7 August 2020. Find out more here.
