Turbulence is responsible for most of the particle and heat losses in magnetically confined fusion plasmas. We seek to better understand the dynamics and transport of plasma turbulence in magnetized high-temperature plasmas. We collaborate closely with scientists from the national research institutions at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Greifswald and Garching. At the university, we will perform fundamental experiments of dynamics in magnetized plasmas on the linear plasma experiment VINETA, which has been moved from IPP Greifswald to the university.
