The Projects of the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP)
IPP's research is concentrated in six projects.
At Garching IPP is conducting a large-scale experiment, the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The Wendelstein 7-X stellarator is operating at the Greifswald branch.
IPP scientists are also active with the joint European device, JET, and are involved in the development of components or experimentation techniques for the ITER international test reactor.
The Demonstration Power Plant project, launched in 2012, analyses how physical and technological boundary conditions affect a future demonstration power plant.
The Plasma-Wall Interaction project is engaged in investigatingthe interaction of plasma and material and in further development of new materials for fusion devices. The Plasma Theory project covers all fundamental theoretical activities of IPP.
