Supervisor:
Department of Physics
Synopsis:

This course provides an opportunity to students interested in magnetic confinement fusion to enhance their knowledge of fusion physics and technology by special topics that are not covered by the mainstream courses. At the same time, it is a platform where students can meet young research scientists from the COMPASS tokamak. In the end of the course students are expected to present results of their own research task.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

Syllabus of lectures:

1)Stellarator physics

2)Simulation of fusion plasmas and integrated tokamak modelling

3)Flux simulation in the plasma edge

4)Current topics in the plasma edge physics

5)Revesed field pinch; Tokamaks of the Ignitor type

6)Tired eyes of the radiation detectors

7)Thomson scattering on the tokamak COMPASS

8)Magnetic field modelling for the tokamak COMPASS
