Hands on adventures

The last few weeks my workplace was invaded by a pack of fusion master students from the Erasmus Mundus Fusion master program. Their mission was to get an insight in what it's like to work as a fusion scientist. I was helping out with an experiment on the technology behind lower hybrid (LH) current drive, a topic I focused on during my master thesis, that I did here at CEA Cadarache. Momentum transfer to the electrons in the plasma through the LH wave is the most efficient method to drive a current in a tokamak plasma which is absolutely necessary for steady state operation.

Physics is phun!

I'm Emelie, a Swedish girl doing a French Ph.D. in Cadarache near Aix-en-Provence at an institute called CEA, located right next to ITER. Learn about how doing a PhD can be Phun.
