IPPL coordinates "PowerLaPs"

Innovative Education & Training Erasmus Program in High Power Laser Plasmas

PowerLaPs aims to trigger the last year Bachelor, Master and PhD students, to enhance their studies  and improve their skills for employability in the scientific area of Plasma Physics and High Power Lasers. The educational and the relevant training methods focus on four thematic priorities:

  1. Plasma physics - Theory and experiments

  2. High power laser matter interactions/High energy density physics - Theory and experiments

  3. Computational modeling & simulations in laser matter interactions

  4. Laser plasma diagnostics - Theory and experiments

 

which are not accessible till now to students and not included in typical academic curricula. The proposed courses will be developed, in a period of two years, in the form of state of the art theoretical, applied and laboratory training accompanied by intensive programmes IP's, in the worldwide arising and rapidly expanding field of high power laser plasmas. The main aim is to challenge the beneficials to fulfill their knowledge status and scientific working skills in topics that are at the cutting edge of technology today. By targeting to these groups of people, the horizontal priority to improve achievement of relevant and high-level quality skills and competences in a lifelong learning perspective is achieved, since these are the main objectives of the project PowerLaPs, focusing to open and innovative education, training and youth work, embedded in the digital era.

Past Lifelong Learning Intense Programms

HIPOLIN

 

CPPL has organized advanced series of Schools of Physics, focused on the field of of high power laser light interaction with matter. “HIPOLIN” took place in the city of Rethymno, Crete for two consecutive years in 2013 and 2014, for two weeks in summer. The project was co-founded by the European Programme Erasmus and CPPL was the coordinator with the cooperation with the following universities: Imperial College of London-UK, University of York-UK, Queens University, Belfast-UK, University of Bordeaux 1-FR, Ecole Polytechnique-FR, Czech Technical University in Prague-CZ, University of Milano–Bicocca-IT, Sapienza University of Rome-IT, Technical University of Madrid-ES, University of Bern-AT, Military University of Technology in Warsaw-PL, University of Ioannina-GR, Democritus University of Thrace-GR, Technical University of Crete-GR.

The program provided participants from Greece and Europe (but also from outside Europe), with advanced  in the field of laser matter interactions, plasma science, optoelectronics, electronics, laser technology and laser driven fusion science & technology. The syllabus of the course offered a complete introduction, for undergraduate students and first year research students, in the topic of Intense Laser – Matter interactions. The I.P. attempted to fill the gap in the curriculum of the standard educational programmes of the participating Universities at this new technology.

APPEPLA

 

CPPL has organized advanced series of Schools of Physics, focused on the fields of Optoelectronics and Plasma Science. “APPEPLA” took place in the city of Rethymno, Crete for the years 2010-2012. The project was co-founded by the European Programme Erasmus and was organized by CPPL with the cooperation with the following universities: Imperial College of London-UK, University of York-UK, Queens University, Belfast-UK, University of Bordeaux 1-FR, Technical University of Lisboa-PT, Czech Technical University in Prague-CZ,University of Milano–Bicocca-IT, Technical University of Madrid-ES

The program provided participants from Greece and Europe (but also from outside Europe in subsequent phases), with advanced knowledge in the field of electronic applications and with a particular focus on optoelectronics in Physics and Plasma Technology. The training of highly educated scientists and engineers in Laser Plasma Physics and Technology is a key point for bringing fusion into society and at the same time giving the opportunity for new scientists to enter the exciting field of laser matter interactions. The I.P. attempts to fill the gap in the curriculum of the standard educational programmes of the participating Universities at this new technology. The scientific topics cover the ares of:

  • Applications of modern electronics in Plasma Science & Technology

  • X-ray production by discharged devices and applications in Plasma diagnostics

  • Plasma Physics Principles for Laser Driven Fusion

  • Optoelectronic technologies for the development of laser infrastructures for laser fusion applications

  • Energy production in indusrial scale by Laser Driven Fusion
