Call for mini workshops 2019

The FuseNet Association supports the organization of mini-workshops: a typically 2-5 day event with a limited audience (on PhD or master level) that covers a topic that is not widely addressed in summer schools or on another educational activity.

As of now, FuseNet is looking for organisations, companies, research institutes or universities in Europe that want to organize such a mini-workshop. Institutes can claim the actual costs, up to 9k€ each. See the attached document for more details. The call is open from now on and runs until 1 June 2019.

Alexis Devitre - IRFM Winter Event

Supported by FuseNet, Alexis Devitre attended the IRFM Winter Event in CEA Cadarache as part of the second-year programme of the European Master in Fusion Science and Engineering Physics. His work on the backend of an ICRH antenna and on testing plasma-facing components have helped him appreciate the practical end of fusion science.

Matthias Werl - MSc thesis at CNT

Supported by FuseNet, Matthias Werl did part of his MSc thesis research at Columbia University in New York, USA. He worked on explaining synergistic effects resulting form microwave heating in combination with a heated and biased filament, which result in unexpectedly high densities. In his free time he went on several (fusion-related) roadtrips, to the beach and some big US cities.

Lidija Radovanovic - internship at IPP Garching

Supported by FuseNet, Lidija Radovanovic went to the Max Planck Insitute for Plasma Physics in Garching, where, using an existing numerical code, she worked on a better understanding of how to combat ELMs using... ELMs. In her free time she explored the wonders of Bavaria and rediscovered her love of swimming.

Tristan Neelis - Msc thesis at IPP Greifswald

Supported by FuseNet, Tristan Neelis went to the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Greifswald, Germany. He worked on investigating neutral beam attenuation of the newly implemented neutral beam source at Wendelstein 7-X.

Stef Voermans - internship at NIFS

Supported by FuseNet, Stef Voermans went to NIFS in Toki, Japan, home to the Large Helical Device. He worked on the tongue-shaped instability in the peripheral region of the plasma, analysing data LHD. In his free time, he went hiking, and explored cities and amusement parks alike.

Mathis Feuvrie - internship at IPP Prague

Supported by FuseNet, Mathis Feuvrie went to the Institute of Plasma Physics, Prague, to work on the design of a robotic liquid lithium manipulator to perform a study on the thermodynamic behaviour of liquid lithium in the tokamak. In his free time, he enjoyed the marvels of Prague, beautiful architecture and cold beers.

Adrien Abrassart - internship at IPP Prague

Supported by FuseNet, Adrien Abrassart went to the Institute of Plasma Physics, Prague, for six months. He worked a linear manipulator to perform tests on metallic samples within the COMPASS tokamak. In his free time he enjoyed the nightlife, history, stories and legends of Prague.

17th SUMmer TRAIning Course (SUMTRAIC) 2019

SUMTRAIC is an experimental SUMmer TRAIning Course in plasma physics in magnetic confinement fusion devices (tokamaks) organised annually at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague (IPP CAS), Czech Republic.

Postdoctoral opportunity at DIII-D: disruption mitigation research

This position is for full-time work with the UCSD collaboration based at the DIII-D tokamak at General Atomics in San Diego, CA, USA with a focus on experimental magnetic fusion energy research. The main experimental duty will be assisting with operation and maintenance of the UCSD fast visible imaging system which includes two fast-framing CMOS cameras, as well as a fast survey spectrometer. The scientific focus will be on disruption mitigation research, which aims to develop methods toward safe, rapid shutdown of high-power tokamak plasmas.
