IPP Summer School for Plasma Physics and Fusion Research

Supported by FuseNet, Paul Stampfer, Christof Pichler, Borbála Szondy, Matteo Hakeem Kushoro, Mohsin Raza, Bjorn Lungberg, Christian Schuster and Federico Cappenberg 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.
