jDPG-Seminar on Plasma Physics - Wendelstein

21.05. - 25.05.2017 at the IPP in Greifswald

Since a couple of years, the jDPG organises seminars for students on recent topics in physics. These seminars are focused on topics which are usually not included in the standard curricula. Their aim is to broaden the participants horizon, on a level suitable for undergraduate students. This time, the seminar is opened the first time for all member of IAPS!

Program

This seminar is aimed to bring together physics students from all over the world who are interested in plasma physics and nuclear fusion science. The lectures start briefly with an general introduction into plasma physics before focussing on special topics around the Wendelstein project. Hence there is no special knowlegde in plasma physics needed - only the basics of the general physics courses are recommended.

The seminar is situated at the Greifswald site of the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), where the Stellarator project "Wendelstein 7-X" is investigated. The Stellarator is a concept of fusion reactors and a much promissing alternative to the Tokamak concept, which is applied in the ITER project. The Stellarator promisses the possibility of continuous operation, while Tokamaks can only operate pulsed. However, this concept is not so far investigated due to the much more complicated shape. Wendelstein itself therefore is not a fusion reactor yet in a sense that it don't fuse significant amout of atoms, but it is aimed to investigate the potentials of this technology as an alternative to the Tokamak.

Furthermore we want to take a look on nuclear fission by visiting the former nuclear power plant in Lubmin, close to Greifswald. The power plant - closed in 1990 - is currently under destruction. Lubmin is therefore one of the first nuclear power plants where is process is carried out. Also a rare opportunity is the visit of unit 6, which was fully constructed but never put into service. Therefore it is not contaminated, so that parts of the reactor can be visited which are usually not accessible due to radiation.

Back in Greifswald, we will continue with plasma physics, but focused on another field than fusion research. The "Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology" (INP) focuses on the developement of basics and technical applications of low temperature plasmas in various fields of application. The INP "carries out research and development from idea to prototype".

Schedule

Arrival is on Sunday, 21.05.2017, until 18.00.
We are meeting at Youth Hostel and have an introductionary talk there. Afterwards the participants may get to know each other during a BBQ at the Hostel.

Departure is on Thursday, 25.05.2017. The program finishes at 12.30 in the Youth Hostel. Afterwards there will be an optional lunch.

Location

Most of the seminars program takes place at the

Max-Planck-Institut for Plasma Physics, Greifswald Branch
Wendelsteinstraße 1
17491 Greifswald
Germany

There will also be visits at the "Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology" (INP) and the former nuclear power plant Lubmin.

Accommodation

We will stay at

Youth Hostel Greifswald
Pestalozzistraße 11/12
17489 Greifswald
Germany

The accommodation (including breakfasts) during the seminar is fully covered by the DPG.

Meals

Meals are not covered. The meal package, which includes all lunches (except of Thursday) at the IPP and dinners at the hostel as well as the welcome BBQ at the arrival day, costs 47 € and can be booked only in the registration form. It is recommended to book this package, because otherwise it could become difficult to get lunch at the IPP.

 

Remark:

Please note, that registration is mandatory! You may cancel your registration up to 3 month prior the seminar. In case of too late cancelations or no-shows, we reserve to invoice the costs.

We look forward to seeing you in Greifswald!
