FuseNet Experiments - IPP RF Laboratory

Experiment: IPP RF Laboratory

Location: Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching

Description: The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany is one of the largest fusion research institutes situated in two locations in Germany: Garching hosts the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak and Greifswald the W7-X stellarator. Besides its research activities, it also supports education by providing access to these large facilities and also to some small educational experiments. The IPP RF laboratory consists of a series of experiments aiming at familiarizing students with HF/VHF transmission lines, matching methods, power generation and measurement equipment used for high power RF. A set of 11 hands-on experiments is complemented by a visit to the high power ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) heating system of ASDEX Upgrade.

Target group: Experiments at IPP mostly address master and doctoral students enrolled in education programmes at German universities. Regular master courses are offered at universities making use of the capabilities provided by IPP. The experiments can also be made available on demand.
Use and access: A lab session can be organised on demand for between 4 and 16 students. It can be tailored to master or doctoral students and can last between half a day and several days.
