The understanding and control of plasma physics phenomena can lead to a great range of applications in various fields such as nuclear fusion, astrophysics, or industrial and medicine plasma.
These developments require however both theoretical work as well as experimental investigations. The use of diagnostics is then required to estimate experimentally the plasma physical quantities, such as electron density, temperature or radiated power and confront them with theory predictions. By full numerical simulation of the detection process, synthetic diagnostics are thus the crucial element at the frontier between modelling and experiments. Indeed, they allow to infer the expected measurements from a given plasma scenario and to validate or reject the candidate models by comparison of their predictions with experimental data. Besides, synthetic diagnostics are an essential tool for design optimization of the diagnostics in their conceptual phase.
The third edition of the PhDiaFusion Summer School will take place in Niepołomice on June 3-7, 2019 and will be solely focused on synthetic diagnostics for plasma physics, including magnetic and inertial confinement.
PhDiaFusion 2019 has been offcially recognized as one of the events of the French-Polish Scientific year.
