Responsible coordinator of the module PH1326 is Philipp Lauber.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
The Ssminar consists of talks by students on topics from the following areas:
Fundamentals of Plasma Physics: Plasmacharacteristika, plasmas in local thermodynamic equilibrium, elastic collisions and conductivity of plasmas, magnetized plasmas, magnetohydrodynamics ...
Technical plasmas: light sources, surface processing, space propulsion
Plasmas in fusion research: fusion reactions, magnetic confinement of fusion plasmas, the elements of a fusion reactor and methods for measuring plasma parameters: measurement of electron density and temperature, optical emission spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy
After successful participation in the module the student can
use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about different aspects of plasma physics.
