IPP Greifswald Branch

The Branch Institute of IPP at Greifswald was founded in 1994. Here the fusion experiment Wendelstein 7-X is being investigated. IPP Greifswald has some 400 members of staff.

Presently, in the IPP Branch Institute Greifswald are the Scientific Divisions Stellarator Heating and Optimisation, Stellarator Dynamics and Transport, Stellarator Edge and Divertor Physics, Wendelstein 7-X Operations, and Stellarator Theory.

A cooperation agreement on fusion-oriented plasma physics is connecting IPP with the Department of Physics of Ernst Moritz Arndt University in Greifswald. Two scientific directors of IPP are also appointed as professors at the university.
