European Conference on Plasma Physics in Berlin
Organised by the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics / 700 scientists from all over the world
At the 41st EPS Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS 2014) in Berlin, which opened on Monday, more than 700 scientists from all over the world have been exchanging ideas and information on the latest advancements made in plasma physics and fusion research. This conference, which has a long tradition and takes place until 27 June 2014, is organised annually by the European Physical Society (EPS) in different hosts countries. The organiser of this year’s conference, which is the 41st in the series, is the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics.
The conference deals with a broad range of topics ranging from the ultra-hot plasmas in fusion research, to low temperature plasma physics and right through to astrophysical plasmas. In the case of magnetically confined fusion plasmas, the issues covered will include the development of plasma scenarios relevant to power stations, particle movement in the magnetic field, the heating and diagnostics of plasmas and the anticipated characteristics of energy-releasing plasmas.
