Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks In diesem Proseminar sollen Grundbegriffe und insbesondere Anwendungen der Plasmaphysik in der Technik, in der Astrophysik und in der Fusionsforschung von den Teilnehmern erarbeitet und präsentiert werden (ca 30min+15min). Alle Themen werden einführend behandelt und können ohne Vorkenntnisse der Plasmaphysik- Vorlesungen besucht werden. Die Themen reichen von Grundlagen über theoretische Modelle bis zu Diagnostiken, Fusionskonzepten, Plasmathrustern und Plasma-Astrophysik. In this pro-seminar the basics and applications of plasma physics in several fields such as fusion research or astrophysics will be covered. The participants will prepare short presentations (30+15min) on an introductory level. No previous plasma physics courses are necessary.
