Organized by the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, the Polytechnic Summer School is suitable as the first plasma physics course or an add-on course for senior undergraduate students and graduate students.
The primary objective of the course 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 23 July to 5 August 2018.
