Three IPP exhibits illustrate nuclear fusion in Heilbronn until September

The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) is participating with three exhibits in the exhibition "The Sun – Living With Our Star". It can be visited at the Heilbronn Science Center experimenta from 18 February to 10 September 2023. more

Nuclear fusion simulation to pioneer transition to exascale supercomputers

The EU Commission is providing 2.14 million euros in funding to take the GENE simulation code developed at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) to a new level. By using exascale supercomputers, it enable digital twins of nuclear fusion experiments such as ITER in future. IPP, the Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) and the Technical University of Munich will work together on the project. more

Fusion meeting of research and industry in Garching with premiere appearance of two start-up initiatives

Around 70 representatives from industry and research as well as from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) met on 8 December for the 2nd Forum FUSION Germany. more

H-mode: This discovery made ITER possible

Forty years ago, physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics found a new plasma state that could be particularly suitable for energy production: the H-mode. On 8 November 1982, the corresponding paper was published, giving fusion research a worldwide boost. To this day, the investigation of the H-mode is one of their most important fields of work. more
