OF INTEREST: Summer school on plasma diagnostics in Poland

The first edition of the new Summer School ’PhDiaFusion’ for students and postdocs was successfully realized last week (16-20 June 2015) in Poland.


The aim of this initiative (cooperation between CEA Cadarache, Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN and Rzeszow Technical University in Poland) is to establish a thematic school, i.e. Summer School of Plasma Diagnostics, with a strictly defined topic: the first edition was devoted to 'Soft X-ray diagnostics for Fusion Plasma’.


The choice of the School’s venue, in the south-eastern part of Poland, was not accidental. In this region the 'green field’ for DONES is proposed under the auspices of local government and Consortium IFMIF/ELAMAT. This region has a heavy concentration of aerospace industry, scientific research centers, as well as educational and training facilities.


The next edition of the School in 2017 will be devoted to neutron and gamma for fusion plasma diagnostics. Book your time in the summer of 2017 for PhDiaFusion !
