Summary

The course provides an overview of the technologies that are essential for fusion developments and for industrial plasma applications, highlighting the synergies between the two fields. The aim is to provide a combined theoretical and experimental background to the various topics.

Content

The various topics also include vacuum technologies, cryogenics, high current and voltage systems, materials for fusion, superconducting magnets, control and data acquisition, electrical arcs, mm-wave systems, plasma fuelling and the tritium cycle in fusion reactors.

The course will consist of three parts:

1. Common aspects of fusion and industrial plasma technologies

2. Specific fusion aspects

3. Specific industrial plasma applications techniques (2 lecturers)
