Get a unique opportunity to go deeper into physics and enjoy staying in the most beautiful city of Russia! Come to Saint-Petersburg and reveal a marvelous spirit of our lovely city!
The course is suitable as the first plasma physics course or an add-on course for senior undergraduate students and graduate students.
The primary objective of the course is to present the fundamentals of plasma physics particularly highlighting high-temperature plasma physics and its applications to controlled fusion. The course begins with an overview of plasma phenomena and their applications. The lectures cover Coulomb collisions, single particle motion in magnetic field, magnetic traps, principles of controlled fusion, plasma heating and diagnostics. The program also includes study visits to a tokamak laboratory and a laboratory for plasma technologies.
The students will acquire and consolidate skills and competence corresponding to the beginning of the first semester of the plasma physics course at Peter the Great Polytechnic University.
Upon successful completion of the course students will receive hard copies of certificates with ECTS credits (mailed by post in case of the online format of the Summer School).
Masters students from FuseNet member universities can request financial support for attending the summer school through www.fusenet.eu/funds. Application for funding is available through the website as well.
