Abstract:

First contact of students with applications of plasma physics.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

Outline:

1st and 2nd block: Introduction, motivation lectures about the SW tools for simple numerical models of plasma physics problems, about the PlasmLab laboratory and the GOLEM tokamak. Students are requested to form groups and select a simple mini-project. During the work on the mini-project, the students will experience and try the methods of problem solution in plasma physics and technology.

3rd – 6th bock: consultation and work on the mini-projects in the groups lead by the experts

7th block: Excursion to ELI Beamlines

8th block: Excursion to Tokamak COMPASS

9th block: Plasma technologies at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the CAS or elsewhere

10th-13th block: presentation, defense and discussion of the mini-projects with the expert supervisors and other students, assignment
