Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

This school is the 56th in the series organized at the Culham Science Centre in Oxfordshire, a leading site for research in plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion carried out under the auspices of EUROfusion and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

The summer school consists of lectures, problem classes, a poster session, and laboratory visits. The first few days provide an introduction to the basic principles of plasma physics through lectures and problem solving sessions. Thereafter, the course covers fusion plasmas, solar, space and astrophysical plasmas, laser plasmas, industrial applications, and data analysis.

Students must be over 18 to attend the summer school and generally will be in their final year of undergraduate or first year of post graduate study.
