Project

Development of magnetical confinement fusion device at DTU

Fusion energy has the potential to become the clean unlimited energy source of the future. The success of fusion energy presently relies on the understanding and the optimization of plasma dynamics inside a magnetic confinement fusion device called a tokamak. The first tokamak at DTU has just entered plasma mode and a number of research projects are ready to be carried out. In the section of Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy we are looking for students to help in this exciting period of time. First plasma was achieved in late March 2019 (see picture) and we are currently looking for students to construct plasma diagnostics, characterize and optimize the plasma operation, and to assist in our general research program.


As a Research Immersion, BSc, or MSc project we have many different possibilities for student who want to work with our new tokamak. A project could include one of the following topics:

·         Determine plasma breakdown (generation) conditions using microwaves

·         Development of light emission diagnostics

·         Detection of plasma waves generated in the plasma

·         Development of probe diagnostic for temperature measurements (we expect temperatures of 3 million degrees C).

Numerical projects related to the tokamak are also possible.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
