Plasmas Physics and Fusion Seminars
Study: European Master in Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physic (273)

Coordinating teacher: MARTIN SOLIS, JOSE RAMON

Department assigned to the subject: Department of Physics

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Students are expected to have completed
Basic computational physics, fluid dynamics and plasma physics (at the leve of the 1st year of the master)
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
The course is aimed to present to the students some of the most elevant actual areas of research in plasma physics and nuclear fusion through researchers specialists in the fields and covering a broad range of topics such as basic plasma theory, statistical physics and fusion applications, plasma turbulence, fusion technology, fusion materials, etc. After the course, the students should have gained a multidisplicnary view of the very different areas of research and techniques involved in nuclear fusion and plasma physics research.
