- Fusion Info
The bi-annual Carolus Magnus Summer School is devoted to the theoretical and experimental aspects of high temperature plasmas confined in toroidal magnetic fields. The school has a focus on the physics of energy production using controlled nuclear fusion. Here, special emphasis is laid on tokamaks, but stellarators are also discussed. The School covers a broad area of topics. The summer school is primarily intended for PhD students and undergraduates in their last year.
Programme topics of the summer school:
The summer school takes place from August 26 – September 6, 2013 at the Physikzentrum, Bad Honnef, Germany. Deadline for application is May 31, 2013. The mansion housing of the Physikzentrum is surrounded by a park at the foot of the Siebengebirge ("the Seven Hills") on the right bank of the Rhine River.
The Carolus Magnus summer school is organised by the Trilateral Euregio Cluster (TEC) with its EURATOM associated members:
• Forschungszentrum Jülich, Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Plasma Physics (IEK-4), Germany
• LPP- ERM/KMS Laboratory for Plasma Physics, Brussels, Belgium
• SCK.CEN, Mol, Belgium
