Tokamak Theory

The Tokamak Theory division is concerned with general questions of plasma theory as well as with experimentally relevant tokamak theory. 


In particular concentrating upon the ASDEX Upgrade Divertor Tokamak at IPP as well as collaborating with ITER, the proposed international test reactor.

Emphasis is placed upon understanding the energy confinement in tokamaks, turbulent plasma behaviour, the dynamics of the plasma edge, the determination of wall-loading and impurity production, the large scale magnetohydrodynamical instabilities, the heating through plasma waves and the modelling the processes in fast current disruptions.
