Stellarator Dynamics and Transport
Main topic of the division is the dynamic behaviour of stellarator plasmas.At IPP Greifswald the linear plasma generator VINETA is operated to study the basic behaviour of plasma waves and instabilities as well as basic questiones of plasma edge physics.
Dynamic behaviour of Plasmas
Perturbations of the plasma equilibrium due to turbulence or global magneto-hydrodynamic instabilities may strongly influence the global magnetic confinement. Therefore the division Stellarator Scenario Development develops diagnostics and mathematical analysis tools to investigate the corresponding fluctuations of plasma quantities.
Besides this department is investigating basic questions of the dynamic behaviour of plasma waves and instabilities as well as questions of plasma edge physics by operating the linear plasma generator VINETA in Greifswald.
