Courses

Global issues: energy A

This course offers an overview of global issues related to energy: basic concepts, needs and resources, societal and political implications. The combination of scientific and SHS approaches will provide the students with quantitative tools as well as an overall vision of the issue.

General physics : electromagnetism

The topics covered by the course are concepts of electromagnetism and electromagnetic waves.

Nuclear fusion and plasma physics

The goal of the course is to provide the physics and technology basis for controlled fusion research, from the main elements of plasma physics to the reactor concepts.

Magnetic confinement

To provide an overview of the fundamentals of magnetic confinement (MC) of plasmas for fusion.The different MC configurations are presented, with a description of their operating regimes.The basic elements of particle & energy transport, of plasma-wall interaction & of burning plasma are introduced.
