"School of Plasma Diagnostics and Technology"

Kudowa Zdroj, Poland, June 4-8, 2002

General Information

The International Centre for Dense Magnetised Plasmas (ICDMP) organized the Second International School of Plasma Diagnostics and Technology, which was held in Kudowa Zdroj, Poland, on June 4-8, 2002. The school was as a satellite meeting to the 20th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology, held in Prague, Czech Republic, on 10-13 June 2002. The school was designed for young scientists from various countries, and it concerned mainly pulsed-plasma experiments, diagnostics and technology. The presentations were disseminated after the school in the form of a CD-ROM.
