Advances and Applications in Plasma Physics

Learn about the plasma physics and nuclear fusion!

The program is intended for undergraduate students who want to deepen their knowledge of plasma physics and who want to pursue a research career at a university, research laboratory, or to be involved into largest nuclear fusion project – ITER or DEMO. Besides the lectures and seminars much attention is paid to attracting students to the research of scientific groups working in promising areas of modern physics: plasma physics theory, plasma modeling (using parallel computing at the Polytechnic supercomputer center), plasma physics diagnostics, and additional heating in tokamaks.

Key Points
