Visit cutting-edge research institutes in Germany!

The Huygens Committee is going to organise the most exciting, interesting and cozy trip of the year for all FMF members: We are going to visit our big neighbour Germany for two days, where we will see a fusion reactor and a particle accelerator! This all right after the exams and just before you go on holiday or do a resit. The maximum costs will be €40,- (€30,- for NNV members—become a member at nnv.nl). You can subscribe by sending an email to huygens@fmf.nl before June 12.

Programme – 28 & 29 June

TUE 28 07:30 Leave for Greifswald

14:00 Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics Greifswald

Visit to a (working) fusion reactor, the Wendelstein 7-X. This is the world's largest fusion reactor of the stellarator type.
Return to Hamburg

Return to Hamburg, where we will stay for the night.
WED 29 14:00 DESY Hamburg

DESY is one of the world's leading accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety—from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behaviour of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life.
Return to Groningen

We'll be back in Groningen around 20:00.

Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics

Wendelstein 7-X is the world's largest fusion device of the stellarator type. Its objective is to investigate the suitability of this type for a power plant. It will test an optimised magnetic field for confining the plasma, which will be produced by a system of 50 non-planar and superconducting magnet coils, this being the technical core piece of the device.

The main assembly of Wendelstein 7-X was concluded in 2014. Once all technical systems had been checked step by step the first plasma was produced on 10th December 2015.

Deutsches Electron Synchrotron

The research carried out at DESY is extremely diverse. The scientists who work here are looking for the tiniest building blocks of matter that make up our world, developing innovative high-tech materials and searching for new mechanisms of action for future medications. As one of Germany's largest research centres, DESY carries out fundamental research that creates new knowledge and new conceptual approaches. This research is the basis on which the challenges of the future can be mastered: issues such as energy supply, climate protection and healthcare require long-term thinking, sustainable solutions and new technologies.
