A turbulence imaging 2D diagnostics system has been installed on MAST at 2010. This diagnostic was operating very successfully in measurement campaigns in 2011 and 2013. The experiment was shut down for a major upgrade in 2013 and is expected to be operational at the end of 2017. The machine was also renamed to MAST-U. The is also being upgraded during the shutdown. The optics […]
The 8th Hungarian Plasma Physics and Fusion Technology Workshop (HPPW) was organised by the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. This year the workshop was held in Esztergom where the scientists and engineers could discuss their last 2 years’ work and achievements in details. An international advisory Panel was invited to review and advice on the programme of the Hungarian […]
Over the last decade the Hungarian Association of Physics Students (Mafihe) has been organizing an annual winter school. This event acts like a break for the physics students after the tough examination period, exploring a stimulating part of physics or related scientific area. The topics are usually chosen to be on the edge of the mainstream education subjects and current enough to attract the young […]
Hungarian camera system recorded the first hydrogen plasma in W7-X On the 3rd of February 2016, fusion community payed attention to Greifswald again. Wendelstein 7-X produced its first hydrogen plasma as a start of the scientific campaign. The first pictures of the hydrogen plasma were captured by the Hungarian camera system just like in December when W7-X officially started. Background: You can read more about […]
Fusion energy production is an old dream of mankind, the developments of a fusion power plant have been long underway. Countries including more than half of the world population have joined to create ITER, the biggest research project on Earth. The members are China, the EU, India, Japan, South-Korea, Russia, the USA. Fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two light nuclei fuse, the closest […]
The 7th Hungarian Plasma Physics and Fusion Technology Workshop is organised by the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Its aim is to provide a forum for exchanging information between Hungarian plasma physicists and engineers and their international colleagues working in different fields. To promote discussions all presentations are done orally. The official language of the workshop is English. You […]
