Vorlesungen Prof. Dr. Thomas Sunn Pedersen
Vorlesungen an der Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität
The goal of this doctoral seminar is to provide an in-depth understanding of some of the key challenges in fusion energy research, bridging the information gap between the theoretical understanding of basic plasma physics processes taught in University lectures, and the more complicated experimental phenomena related to present challenges in magnetic fusion energy research. Such phenomena are often described in papers and at conferences using special vocabulary and acronyms, without an in-depth physics description, since the phenomena are well-known among seasoned fusion scientists. Among the topics to be delved into are disruptions, edge localized modes (ELMs) and divertors.
