Joint Experimentation and Analysis Session
Master in Mathematical Engineering (Plan: 460 - Estudio: 88)

Coordinating teacher: SANCHEZ FERNANDEZ, LUIS RAUL

Department assigned to the subject: Physics Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
First year master courses, mainly basic plasma physics, experimental techniques (plasmas, materials and nuclear physics) and computational physics.
Research in the Tokamak department is pursued in topics that are directly linked to the international long-term efforts into mastering thermonuclear fusion. Fusion presents environmentally acceptable and practically inexhaustible energy source for future generations. Experimental research in the department is based on use of the national facility tokamak COMPASS that full started operation in 2012.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
This activity is taken simultaneously by all second-year master students at the Institute for Plasma Physics in Prague, Czech Republic, where the CASTOR tokamak is housed. Students will have first-hand experience in the design, control, operation and diagnosis of a mid-size tokamak, guided by the IPP scientific staff.
