Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
This course aims to introduce students into the fundamentals of plasma physics. The students learn basic processes in plasma physics as well as behaviour of plasma under various conditions and basic diagnostics methods used in plasma.

Teaching in English is meant only for erasmus and foreign students. In the case of a small number of students is teaching in a form of individual consultations.
