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 Saturday, 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

We can grant you 3 ECTS under our BIP!
