The Academy of Sciences of the Czech rebublic - ASCR


Group of experimental physics

The group is focused on the scientific exploitation of the COMPASS tokamak as well as being involved in experimental studies in other fusion devices, mainly within the EUROfusion consortium, such as tokamaks JET, ASDEX Upgrade, TCV, MAST-U, and WEST. The diverse fields of expertise of our members enable us to study both the core and edge plasma physics, and the divertor and SOL physics in tokamaks. Main topics for our studies are: edge turbulent transport, access to enhanced confinement modes, ELMs, runaway electrons, resonant magnetic perturbations of the edge plasma, disruptions, detachment and plasma-wall interactions in general and liquid metals as plasma-facing components. Experiments in COMPASS were also performed in support of the ITER project and great contributions were made in the fields of the narrow SOL in start-up discharges, error fields, and halo current flows during disruptions. After the decommissioning of COMPASS, the group will focus on the future scientific exploitation of the new COMPASS-U tokamak, whilst keeping its involvement in EUROfusion activities.
