11th Carolus Magnus Summer School
on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics
- Physikzentrum, Bad Honnef, Germany
The Carolus Magnus Summer School is devoted to the theoretical and experimental aspects of high temperature plasmas confined in toroidal magnetic fields. The school has a focus on the physics of energy production using controlled nuclear fusion. Here, special emphasis is laid on tokamaks, but stellarators are also discussed. The School covers a broad area of Go-Symbol topics.
The Institute for Energy and Climate Research - Plasma Physics at Forschungszentrum Jülich, the FOM Institute DIFFER in Nieuwegein, the Laboratory for Plasma Physics of the ERM/KMS Brussels and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN at Mol are associated in the "Trilateral Euregio Cluster" (TEC), which is responsible for the organisation of the Carolus Magnus Summer Schools. The School takes place every two years, usually in the month of September.
The Carolus Magnus Summer School, which includes a series of lectures from senior physicists from Germany and abroad is primarily intended for PhD students as well as for undergraduate students who will become PhD students after the present academic year. Experienced scientists who, coming from other disciplines, recently entered the fields of plasma physics or nuclear fusion will also benefit from the school that will provide an overview of the various interconnected research domains. The Carolus Magnus Summer School does not only teach fusion basics, it also describes the latest developments on the way to the fusion power plant.
