FuseNet and EUROfusion are in close collaboration to resume our work in support of European Fusion Education as soon as possible. Agreement has been reached and we are establishing the necessary contracts. We will soon communicate the date we expect to resume all our activities and student funding support actions.
The course 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, particularly highlighting high‐temperature plasma physics and its applications to controlled fusion. The course begins with an overview of plasma phenomena and their technological applications. The lectures cover - Coulomb collisions - single particle motion in magnetic field - magnetic traps - principles of controlled fusion - plasma heating and diagnostics
