A two-year degree comprising 120 ECTS credits, the track Plasmas and Beams follows the general structure of the MSc Applied Physics. This includes a core course in computational and mathematical physics, mandatory specialization courses, free and track electives, an internship and a final project.
All students in the track Plasmas and Beams must take one 5-credit specialization course. This is:
- Physics of plasmas and radiation
The track electives for the track are:
- Fusion on the back of an envelope
- Condensed matter at the nanoscale
- Advanced electrodynamics
- Heating and diagnosing fusion plasmas
- Gas discharges
- Photonics and modern optics
- Magnetic confinement and MHD of fusion plasmas
- Solar cells
- Accelerators and beams
- Plasma processing science and technology
- Fusion reactors: extreme materials, intense plasma wall interaction
- Ultracold quantum physics
- Optical diagnostics: techniques and applications
- Advanced plasma physics
