Synopsis:

The main aim of the course Laboratory Work in Plasma Physics is to get students acquainted with several complex experimental devices (tokamaks

GOLEM and COMPASS, large laser facility PALS, experimental fission reactor VR-1 VRABEC and others). Besides that, students obtain and

strengthen basic skills critical to their potential future experimental research carrier e.g. preparation of experiment, its execution, analysis and interpretation of measured data, and presentation of results.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Thermal plasma, its generation, diagnostics and applications.

2. Electron microscopy and its application for study of material degradation.

3. Measurement of hard X ray and neutron emission from impulse DD fusion neutron source with temporal resolution on Z-pinch device.

4. Measurement of basic parameters of plasma in GOLEM tokamak

5. Measurement of spectra in visible and UV range on COMPASS tokamak.

6. Measurement of magnetic fields on COMPASS tokamak.

7. Fast measurements (PALS).

8. Measurement of glow discharge parameters by Langmuir probes.

9. Introduction into neutron measurements (VR-1 VRABEC).
