Plasma Surface and Divertor Physics

Prof. Ulrich Stroth

Research Field

We represent at the TUM the wide field of plasma physics in research and
teaching. The focus of our work lies on magnetized high-temperature plasmas as
they exist in fusion experiments as well as in the universe. Of special interest
for our research are processes relevant for developing a future energy source
based on fusion reactions in magnetically confined plasmas. The experimental
work is mainly carried out on the tokamak experiment ASDEX Upgrade located at
the MPI for Plasma Physik on this campus but also on other international
research facilities such as JET and, in the future, Iter. Of particular interest
for our research are non-linear plasma processes, which govern plasma
instabilities, turbulence and turbulent transport, the numerical description of
transport processes, as well as the physics of plasma-wall interaction. For our
experimental investigations we use optical diagnostics and different types of
electrostatic probes. The experimental data we compare with results from leading
simulation codes. Investigations on large fusion devices are rounded off by
studies of model systems on smaller laboratory experiments.
