Theory and Modelling Group, IPP.CR

Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences

Theory and modelling group at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences performing theoretical study of the tokamak plasma. This includes research, requiring atomic, molecular and plasma-surface interaction (AMP) data; such as, SOL physics, NBI heating, impurity transport and ets. Among the most AMP hungry directions is the Kinetic modelling of the plasma edge, development of corresponding kinetic codes and nonlinear collison operators.
