PlasmaSurf Summer CourseWhere Physics and Summer meet
Summer Course Programme
The regular course covers the basics of plasma physics, high power lasers and nuclear fusion, giving students the opportunity to get in touch with a wide range of interesting and cutting-edge topics. Who knows, you may find here the idea that will become your Master or or PhD thesis!
The lectures will be offered in self-contained modules, Monday through Friday, including some pratical lectures on remote laboratories, data analysis and computer science. Late afternoons are focused on joint/coaching activities, some involving the lecturers too.
Key topics include:
Introduction to Plasma Physics
Magnetic and inertial Nuclear Fusion
High power and ultrashort Lasers
Large international experiments involving Plasma Science
Last year the course included a visit to the ISTTOK tokamak and the Laboratory for Intense Lasers.
