"Summer University for Plasma Physics and Fusion Research" at IPP in Garching
Submit application now / qualification during semester vacation
Enrolment for IPP’s Summer University is now open. Physics and engineering students from the whole of Europe can submit applications to Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Garching near Munich till 31 May 2013.
The Summer University affords the opportunity during the semester vacation week from 16 to 20 September 2013 to acquire comprehensive information on plasma physics and fusion research: the objective of IPP’s research is to develop a power plant that, like the sun, derives energy from fusion of atomic nuclei. To ignite the fusion fire, the fuel, a hydrogen plasma, has to be confined in magnetic fields and heated to temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees.
