Francis Prasanth - internship at CIEMAT

Supported by FuseNet, Francis Prasanth got the opportunity to do a three-month internship at CIEMAT, Madrid, for investigating the role of Neutrals in the Turbulence processes in TJ-II Stellerator.

Oscar Putignano - internship at CNA

Supported by FuseNet, Oscar Putignano went to the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville, where he worked on determining fast-ion-orbit kick. This is important in learning how to reduce ELMs in tokamaks, which are very bad for the wall of the vacuum vessel.

Jesper Cuperus - internship at COMPASS

Supported by FuseNet, Jesper Cuperus did his internship at COMPASS in Prague, where he worked on a calibrating a new spectrometer to measure poloidal rotation and ion temperatures near the plasma edge. After a great many iterations the system proved very useable for distinguishing between L- and H-mode.

Irene Casiraghi - internship at JET

Supported by FuseNet, Irene Casirahi went to JET at Culham Science Centre where she worked on transport behaviour in D-T plasmas. Notably, she looked at how different ion masses (hydrogen vs deuterium) change transport.

Álvaro Cubí - intership at IPP

Supported by FuseNet, Álvaro Cubí did his internship at the Max Plank Institute of Plasma Physics in Garching, Germany. He performed work related to neutronic simulations for DEMO's (post-ITER-generation) Neutral Beam Injectors. On his days off, he also discovered the joy of bouldering.

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, Matteo Hakeem Kushoro, Mohsin Raza and Bjorn Lungberg 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.
