Synopsis:

The goal of the lecture is performing experimental work on advanced plasma laboratory experiments: either on a fusion device - the GOLEM tokamak, or in a specialized laboratory for training of fusion oriented plasma physics – PlasmaLab@CTU. The goal is also obtaining experience with the basics of scientific work.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

12ZFP, Principles of plasma physics (at FNSPE CTU), or a course that covers the basics of plasma physics ( at a foreign university)

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

The introduction is devoted to learning about the laboratories, with detailed focus on general principal of remote access to modern experiments.

At the GOLEM tokamak, students will then decide their own original (if possible) research topic, they will introduce it to others as a research plan, and they will measure and evaluate it in couple of hours. The results will be presented and discussed on a small student workshop with mutual refereeing. The authors of the best contributions will be encouraged to present them on a regular conference.

At the PlasmaLab laboratory, students will take turns on couple of experiments focused to develop skills in working with fusion plasma diagnostics. Then they will process the measuremets and conclude them in reports.

Study Objective:

The goal of the lecture is performing experimental work on advanced plasma laboratory experiments: either on a fusion device - the GOLEM tokamak, or in a specialized laboratory for training of fusion oriented plasma physics – PlasmaLab@CTU. The goal is also obtaining experience with the basics of scientific work.

Skills:

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