Upcoming events

Presentations at the 28th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference (FEC 2020) 10-15 May Mathias Hoppe will present "Polarized synchrotron radiation as a tool for studying runaway electrons". Members of our group are co-authors on the presentations by Y Peysson: "Effect of partially ionized high-Z atoms on fast electron dynamics in tokamak plasmas", G Papp: "Runaway electron experiments and model validation on ASDEX Upgrade and TCV", and E Nardon: "Theory and Modelling activities in support of the ITER Disruption Mitigation System".

Presentations at the 47th EPS Conference on Plasma Physics, 21-25 June (Virtual) Istvan Pusztai will give an oral presentation with the title: "Kinetic dynamo in non-magnetized plasmas impeded by magnetic Landau damping". Mathias Hoppe will present: "DREAM: a fluid-kinetic framework for tokamak disruption runaway electron simulations". Andréas Sundström will present: "Effects of Coulomb collisions on electron heating and subsequent electrostatic shocks in thin foils driven by an ultraintense short-pulse laser". Members of our group are co-authors on the following contributions: "Runaway electron modelling in the EU-IM framework", "Analysis of the synchrotron radiation images of runaway electron beams in JET: island-like patterns and partial collapse of runaway electron beam", "Analysis of RE beams in COMPASS and JET using betatron equilibrium and radiation diagnostics", "Runaway electron distribution reconstruction using multispectral synchrotron imaging at TCV", Attosecond betatron radiation pulse train" and "Sub-cycle pulse generation in laser-plasma interaction: from relativistic mirrors to laser wakefield driven amplification".
