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.

We can grant you 1,5 ECTS!

Some rooms will be available for free for some trainees to extend their stay. Priority will be given to those who apply for the training program. Request has to be submitted upon registration (14 May), mentioning the required departure date.
