New link with the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics

A new Memorandum of Understanding on research collaboration was signed in September 2015 between the Plasma Research Laboratory (home to the APFRF) and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics. The agreement heralds an exciting opportunity for personnel exchange, and for Australian scientists to work on the newly commissioned billion-Euro W7-X superconducting stellarator in Greifswald, Germany.

The principal objective of the cooperation is to provide opportunities for exchange of ideas, information, skills and knowhow in the area of fusion science and technology. The agreement builds on estabished collaborations in plasma diagnostics and theory and modelling, and will embrace all areas of experimental plasma physics, fusion-relevant materials and plasma theory and modeling.
