Plasma Waves and Applications to RF Heating

Course duration: 9-28 November 2016.

Location: Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary

This is an accredited course at BME of 2 ECTS value taught by Professor Miklos Porkolab - Professor at MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center. The course covers topics from the theory of electromagnetic wave (EM) propagation in a cold, magnetized plasma to applications of kinetic theory to the RF heating of fusion plasmas. Outline of the course. Webpage of the lecturer. The course is partly funded by FUSENET and Wigner RCP.

Application is either through the Neptun system for BME students (code: BMETE80AF40) or by e-mail to for external students with information on your current position and previous plasma physics studies. Application deadline is 15th October, but please apply as soon as possible to help the organizers! The course itself is free but we cannot provide any additional funding for your stay. Organizers offer to help in finding cheap accommodation and other organizational issues, and EUROfusion member states or at FuseNet member universities can apply here for financial support from FuseNet.
