Igor Khodunov - internship at COMPASS

Supported by FuseNet, Igor Khodunov did an intership at IPP's COMPASS tokamak in Prague, where he worked on divertor detachment. In an environment where heat fluxes are extreme enough to melt the most hardy materials known to mankind, it is of quintessential importance to greatly deminish this heat flux before it hits the divertor.

Tiago Pomella Lobo - MSc thesis at Tritium Laboratory Karlsruhe

Supported by FuseNet, Tiago Pomella Lobo to the Tritium Laboratory Karlsruhe for his Master's thesis, where he studied the loss of gas through steel in one the experimental set-ups.

Liudas Karalius - internship at COMPASS

Supported by FuseNet, Liudas Karalius went on an internship to IPP's COMPASS tokamak in Prague. Hiswork focused on the development of an algorithm that  be used in searches of toroidal plasma centroid asymmetries during disruptions.

Antoine Baillod - MSc thesis at CCFE

Supported by FuseNet, Antoine Baillod went to CCFE's Joint European Torus (JET), where he worked on the data analysis of the JET lithium beam diagnostic, important for measuring the electron density.

Vignesh Gopakumar - MSc thesis at CCFE

Supported by FuseNet, Vignesh Gopakumar went to Culham Centre for Fusion Energy for his graduation project. He designed a machine learning algorithm that can help bridge the computational time gap between numerical models for the plasma core's behaviour and the plasma-wall behaviour.

Oleg Samoylov - MSc thesis at IPP

Supported by FuseNet, Oleg Samoylov went to IPP in Garching for his graduation project. The title of his project: modelling of the Electron cyclotron Transport of MHD modes in a tokamak geometry

Diogo Carvalho - internship at IPP COMPASS tokamak

Supported by FuseNet, Diogo Carvalho went on an internship to IPP's COMPASS tokamak in Prague. He worked on applying artificial neural networks to plasma tomography algorithms.

Andrea Piccione - MSc thesis at CCFE's MAST

Supported by FuseNet, Andrea Piccione went to Culham Centre for Fusion Energy for his MSc thesis, where he studied the dynamics of the filamentary structures moving across the Scrape-Off Layer in MAST.

Valeriia Istokskaia - attendee 14th Kudowa Summer School

Supported by FuseNet, Valeriia Istokskaia attended the 14th Kudowa Summer School in the Polish town of Kudowa-Zdroj. She learned about plasma basics and fusion energy, inertial and magnetic confinement fusion, plasma-diagnostics and technology, laser fusion and laser-matter interaction.

IPP Summer School for Plasma Physics and Fusion Research

Supported by FuseNet, Paul Stampfer, Christof Pichler, Borbála Szondy and Matteo Hakeem Kushoro attended the IPP Summer School in Greifswald, Northern Germany. They learned about plasmas, reactor concepts and the current barriers to a fully functioning reactor. They also got to take a peak into the control room of Greifswald's very own stellarator, Wendelstein 7-X.

Culham Plasma Physics Summer School 2018

Supported by FuseNet, Lorenzo Sala, Oleksandr Burlayenko, Bo Schmidt, Giorgio Guerini Rocco and Mirko Cagnetta attended the 55th Culham Plasma Physics Summer School, an international event held every year at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.

Plasmasurf 2018

Supported by FuseNet, Yuliia Volkova and Artem Savchenko attended Plasmasurf 2018, Lisbon. They attended lectures on a host of different plasma physics topics and visited IST Laboratories, where they were informed about data acquisition, diagnostics and tokamak engineering.

Mladen Mitov - attendee Summer School on Plasma Physics by Sofia University

Supported by FuseNet, Mladen Mitov attended the 8th International Workshop and Summer School on Plasma Physics, organised by Sofia University. He delved into the world of fusion devices and plasma diagnostics. 

Kornee Kleijwegt - MSc thesis at ASDEX Upgrade

Supported by FuseNet, Kornee Kleijwegt went to IPP in Garching for his graduation project. The title of his thesis: validation and implementation of a real-time sawtooth crash detector for ASDEX - Upgrade.

Neil Lamas - internship at IPP COMPASS tokamak

Supported by FuseNet, Neil Lamas went on an internship to IPP's COMPASS tokamak in Prague. He simulated resonant magnetic perturbations, which are used to mitigate the effects of runaway electrons and localised modes in tokamaks.

Tijs Wijkamp - internship at DIII-D San Diego

Supported by FuseNet, Tijs Wijkamp went on an internship to the DIII-D National Fusion Facility in San Diego. He did both modelling and experimental work on the Langmuir probes used in DIII-D, which need revising due to water leakages.

Tymofii Khvan - MSc thesis at SCK-CEN

Supported by FuseNet, Tymofii Khvan did his Master's thesis at the Belgium Nuclear Research Centre (SCK-CEN). He investigated the properties of tungsten wires to be used in fusion-plasma-facing components.

Yacopo Damizia - attendee Summer School St. Petersburg

Supported by FuseNet, Yacopo Damizia attended a Summer School in St. Petersburg on Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion.

Tokamak engineering in Budapest

Supported by FuseNet, Tom Todd, retired chief technologist of the UKAEA, went to Budapest to give a lecture series 'How to build a tokamak'.

Sonia Gamba, master project at SPC, EPFL

Supported by FuseNet, Sonia Gamba went to the Swiss Plasma Center to work on a kinetic model for the Scrape-Off Layer of a plasma.
