The Wendelstein 7-X fusion device at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Greifswald produced its first hydrogen plasma on 3 February 2016. This marks the start of scientific operation. Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest fusion device of the stellarator type, is to investigate this configuration’s suitability for use in a power plant.
The 2015 Hannes Alfvén Prize will be awarded at EPS2015 to Nathaniel J. Fisch (PPL, USA) “for his contributions to the understanding of plasma wave‐particle interactions and their applications to efficiently driving currents with radio‐frequency waves”.
The 42nd Annual IOP Spring Conference on Plasma Physics will run from 30 March to 2 April at the Kents Hill Park Training and Conference Centre in Milton Keynes and will cover all disciplines including Magnetic and Inertial confinement fusion, Astrophysical Plasmas and Low Density and Technological/Industrial Plasmas to name a few.
This conference continues a series of plasma physics conferences organized by the EPS Plasma Physics Division covering the wide field from nuclear fusion research to low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas.
The venue of the 42nd EPS conference will be in Centro Cultural de Belem, located between the famous Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, in Lisbon, Portugal.
The International Conference on Science and Technology for FAIR in Europe 2014 will be held in Worms, Germany, from 13-17 October 2014.
FAIR is an international accelerator facility for the research with antiprotons and ions. It is ready to be built within the coming years near Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany. Further information is available on the FAIR website.
The scientific landscape has evolved in all fields of FAIR physics and it is high time…
The 41st EPS conference on Plasma Physics will be held from 23-27 June 2014 in Berlin, Germany.
This conference continues the series of plasma physics conferences organized by the European Physical Society covering the wide field from nuclear fusion research to the low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas.
A number of scientists accepted to prepare plenary talks of general interest for the participants. Invited talks will be given for the four topics separately, namely on Magnetic Confinement Fusion, on Beam Plasmas and Inertial Fusion…
The 26th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology [SPPT 14] will take place from 16 to 19 June 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.
This conference, with its first edition dating back to 1967, serves as a meeting point for researchers to present and discuss the latest advances in Plasma Physics as well as the state-of-the-art technology developed for this field.
SPPT 14 covers broad range of Plasma Physics topics, namely: Tokamaks and other magnetic confinement devices…
The International Coherent Amplification Network [ICAN] held a two-day symposium on new fibre laser-based accelerator concepts at CERN from 27 to 28 June 2013. The symposium assembled a wide range of scientists ranging from particle physicists to telecommunications engineers to explore how a new architecture of high intensity lasers could contribute to the next generation of particle accelerators.The idea behind the use of lasers for particle acceleration exploits the fact that ultrashort laser pulses can generate electric field intensities sufficient to drive plasma wakefield dynamics which can accelerate electrons to GeV energies…
The International Joliot-Curie School will take place from 29 September to 4 October 2013 in Fréjus in the south of France.
With the aim of creating and updating the skills of researchers in the field of Quark-Gluon Plasma and Hadronic Structure, this year’s edition of the Joliot-Curie school will address the topic: “A colourful journey: from Hadrons to Quark-Gluon Plasma”. During the school, two sessions will be dedicated to the students’ posters…
