European fusion research coordinator EUROfusion and european ITER contribution coordinator Fusion for Energy have visited Wigner Research Centre for Physics. The aim of the delegation was to check the status of the video diagnostic being built for Japanese JT-60SA tokamak which is developed by Hungarian physicists and engineers. This video diagnostic will be the first european one on this device. “Wigner institute expertise in tokamak […]
In the very last week of the summer (27-31 August 2018) international students from 6 countries and 3 continents gathered in Budapest for a lecture series on Tokamak engineering by guest lecturer Tom Todd. After a quick review on fusion basics the audience could learn “How to build a tokamak?” already in the first morning. On the next days, the retired Chief Technologist of the […]
The atomic beam probe is a unique extension of the beam emission spectroscopy (BES) diagnostic, being developed at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Hungary). You can read about the BES diagnostic and the research activity of the BES group in more details on the Wigner RCP website. Just as a reminder: the BES is a special tool to diagnose plasma edge density. The working […]
