Department of Physics
Synopsis:

Seminars based on invited lectures given by experts in the field of research and development of thermonuclear fusion. Students are encouraged to participate in seminars of neigbouring fields according to the subject of their diploma thesis.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

The seminar is based on invited lectures given by experts in the field of research and development of thermonuclear fusion, both physicists and engineers. The subject of the lecture can be focused either on current status in the research field (e.g. News in the world fusion research, European collaboration in the fusion education, Participation of Czech industries in the ITER project) or on the personal expertise of the invited lecturer (e.g. spheromac experiments, Diagnostics of magnetic reconnection). At the same time, students are encouraged to participate in seminars of neigbouring fields according to the subject of their diploma thesis.

Study Objective:

Knowledge: introducing in detail to physics of tokamak experiments

Skills: the course will be focused on the physics context, terminology and phenomenology of the subject so that the participants can substantially improve their capacity to search for information and to work independently with scientific literature.
