Fusion - TOKAMAK Physics

The topic aims to prepare and accompany the construction and operation of ITER, and to explore and develop plasma and heat exhaust scenarios that are also suitable for DEMO. The central facility is the tokamak ASDEX Upgrade. Where appropriate, this is complemented by work on other European or international tokamak facilities.
