Experience of a summer intern at our group


Since the 25 of June until the 6 of September I was one of the two students that participated in the International Summer HPC Internship Programme at Fusion group in Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). We were already presented in an earlier post entitled New summer interns at BSC Fusion Group. Among the two of us, I am Adam Teixidó, and in this post I will relate my experience, which I enjoyed.

Our four recent journal publications on JET results in Nuclear Fusion

Sample Nuclear Fusion journal.

Two members of our fusion group, Mervi Mantsinen and Dani Gallart, have collaborated in four recent peer-reviewed journal papers that has been recently published in Nuclear Fusion.

Nuclear Fusion is the acknowledged world-leading journal specializing in fusion. The journal covers all aspects of research, theoretical and practical, relevant to controlled thermonuclear fusion, and enjoys a high impact factor of 3.516 (2018).

From 22 July to 2 August, we enjoyed the visits of two PhD students, Sadig Mulas and Joona Kontula from CIEMAT and Aalto University, respectively, to our group. Sadig and Joona came to work with us within the collaboration between the three institutions (CIEMAT – Aalto University – BSC) on numerical modelling of fast ions in the TJ-II stellarator. The TJ-II stellarator is an experimental fusion device is located at the CIEMAT headquarters in Madrid, Spain, which uses fast ions injected by neutral beam injection to heat the plasma.

The EUROfusion experimental campaign at the Joint European Torus (JET) located at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), UK is in full swing.

Last week our group leader Mervi Mantsinen and our La Caixa-funded PhD student Dani Gallart visited JET to participate in this campaign. Our focus was in on-site preparation, execution and first analysis of two sessions of the experiment M18-05 “ICRH scenario support in D and T plasmas” for which Mervi is one of the two scientific coordinators. This means that she is in charge of the scientific planning of this experiment and the coordination of its international team of approximately 45 scientists from various institutions all over Europe.

Thrilled by PlasmaSurf Summer School

Following the yearly tradition established over the past seven years, the Portuguese Institute of Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), located in Lisbon, Portugal, organized the PlasmaSurf 2019 summer school in plasma physics, intense lasers and nuclear fusion from the 14th to the 21st of July. This year two members of our group, Jordi Manyer and Ignacio López de Arbina, were among the lucky applicants accepted to attend the school. Jordi’s participation was further sponsored by FuseNet, which we gratefully acknowledge.
