Unfortunately the absence of a new contract with EUROfusion has delayed all FuseNet operations, including the PhD event that was ready to be held at ITER. Update: Individual student-support reopened until end of 2016!
Supported by FuseNet, Xiang Cheng has done a 3-month internship at PPPL on the topic of the non-adiabatic behaviour of particles in a magnetic mirror trap.
Supported by FuseNet, Ray Chandra visited the KSTAR tokamak in South-Korea for his internship on optical boundary construction.
Ester Diaz Alvarez visited the Tritium Laboratory in Karlsruhe to work on tritium extraction from liquid breeding blankets, for which she received FuseNet funding.
During an internship at IPFN in Lisbon, Kunal Soni worked on determining the temperature of laser cooled atoms, for which he received FuseNet support.
Supported by FuseNet, Sundaresan Sridhar has visited Queen's University in Belfast for his internship about Monte-Carlo simulation of diffusion in magnetised plasmas.
Supported by FuseNet, Isabella Mario did her master thesis at IPP Garching, working on the beam characterisation of the ELISE neutral beam by infrared thermography.
Jesse Colon Villalon visited IPP in Garching, working on locating magnetic islands during discharges in ASDEX Upgrade. For his internship, Jesse received FuseNet support.
Supported by FuseNet, Davide Silvagni participated in the Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop on Theory of Fusion Plasmas.
FuseNet has supported several student to attend the 2016 edition of the IPP Summer School at the Max-Planck Institute in Greifswald, Germany.
