With the construction of the ITER experiment in Cadarache, France, research on Nuclear Fusion as an energy source is entering a new era since for the first time, the internal heating of the plasma by fusion born α-particles will dominate the external heating. While ITER is often seen as a strategic step on the way to a fusion power plant, it will also be a facility that enables fascinating research in the area of high temperature plasma physics using magnetic confinement. In the 2020s, research on ITER will target a large spectrum of plasma physics phenomena, from small scale turbulence via large scale Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) modes to the dynamics of the self-heating process. In addition, exhaust of power and particles will bring in elements of low temperature plasma physics and plasma wall interaction under quite extreme conditions.
It is the aim of this School to present and discuss this wide spectrum of plasma physics issues with interested physicists from all fields of physics to provide better understanding of the key physics areas involved in magnetically confined fusion plasmas.
Ample discussion time will be provided.
