Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik

  The Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik (IPP) is a physics institute for the investigation of plasma physics, with the aim of working towards fusion power. The institute also works on surface physics, also with focus on problems of fusion power.

The IPP is an institute of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, part of the European Fusion Program (Euratom), and an associated member of the Helmholtz Association

The IPP has two sites: Garching near Munich (founded 1960) and Greifswald (founded 1994), both in Germany.

It owns several large devices, namely

  • the experimental tokamak ASDEX Upgrade (in operation since 1991)
  • the experimental stellarator Wendelstein 7-AS (in operation until 2002)
  • the experimental stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (under construction)
  • a tandem accelerator

It also cooperates with the ITER and JET projects.

Graduate Program

The International Max Planck Research School on Bounded Plasmas is a graduate program offering a Ph.D. The school is run in cooperation with the University of Greifswald.
