At first hearing, it may sound like a bad sci-fi movie title but the story is very real and serious. A team of Wigner fusion spent the last 3 weeks at the world’s largest stellarator device, W7-X, to install a new, fully Hungarian developed equipment for the German beast. Dr. Gábor Anda, project manager, Tibor Krizsanóczi electrical engineer, Sándor Hegedűs physicist and Domonkos Nagy mechanical […]
New Hungarian diagnostics departed and arrives today at the Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest stellarator type experimental fusion device in Greifswald, Germany, where the work of the Hungarians is well known. Feverish preparation and packing preceded the departure of the accelerated alkaline atomic diagnostics, designed and manufactured by the members of the Beam Emission Spectroscopy Research Group, Wigner Research Center for Physics, Dr. Gábor Anda, […]
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 […]
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 […]
