Experiments at Princeton University have shown that magnetic reconnection converts about 50% of the magnetic energy into the plasma. The experiment also suggests the process by which the energy conversion occurs, a step that can help tokamak physicists.
Party on a boat, picnic on a beach and an accessible introduction on the interface between plasma physics and fusion control engineering? This summer school has it all and you can earn 3.5 ECTS by participating! Register before June 1st.
The "International School on Energy" is a 7-day summer school situated in Varenna, Italy which covers the physics related fields of energy production, conversion, transmission and savings. The program is intended for PHD students and early career post docs.
