About

The course will give insight into how plasmas are created, where they appear and will try to develop a physical understanding of the characteristic properties of plasmas. An important part of the course is to illustrate plasma physics concepts and phenomena by considering applications ranging from fusion energy generation and microwave techniques to space physics and astrophysics.
