FuseNet Experiments - PlasmaLab Eindhoven

Eindhoven University of Technology offers a master programme 'Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion'. This programme is supported by a plasma physics laboratory, 'PlasmaLab@ TU/e', consisting of 10 different plasma experiments ranging from breakdown in gases to diagnostics and techniques as used on large fusion experiments.

Target Group: The PlasmaLab@ TU/e aims at supplementing the education by hands-on experience and provides the students with a reality check of the theory learned. Moreover it will develop their experimental skills and creativity. The principal target group are students that follow master-level plasma courses, but the lab material can equally well be used for teaching at other levels: bachelor, high school students or outreach activities. Each of the 10 experiments is unique in order to optimise plasma physics coverage. Basic experiments include Langmuir probes and magnetic diagnostics. 

Use and Access: The PlasmaLab@ TU/e is fully operational primarily as an educational facility for the plasma groups in the faculty of Applied Physics and for outreach activities. Also external users might access it, just ask about the possibilities. Moreover, 1-week hands-on PlasmaLab courses open to foreign students are organised. 

Three of the experiments at PlasmaLab@ TU/e are co-funded by the the Fusenet Association:
