Summer School on Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion

Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion

This 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 particularly 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. For more information about the programme, please check the official site of the summer school:

Classes take place from 4 - 15 July 2016 and attending the summer school costs roughly €410. More information can be found at the Summer School's website mentioned below.
