Review paper on three-ion ICRH scenarios and their applications has been selected as a “Featured Article” in Physics of Plasmas

Extremely high plasma temperatures are required to allow energy production in a fusion reactor. The Laboratory for Plasma Physics of the Royal Military Academy (LPP-ERM/KMS), led by director Prof. Michael Van Schoor, is famous for its expertise in heating fusion devices with ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH). One of the recent achievements in this field […]
