Our PhD student Allah Rakha presented his current work titled “Modelling of Energetic Particle-Driven Alfvénic instabilities in TJ-II plasmas” at Fast Ions Physics workshop (January 22-23, 2018), held at Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik Teilinstitut Greifswald, Germany.

The fast ion physics workshop was designed for the stellarator fusion community to envisage the studies of energetic particles for up-coming experimental campaign in July 218 at W7X stellarator.
