Education

 

        • BSc, Faculty of Physics, University of Belgrade, Serbia, 2013
        • MSc, European Master of Science in Nuclear Fusion and Engineering Physics, University of Lorraine, France/Ghent University, Belgium, 2015

              Background

               

                      • The goal of Ana’s PhD thesis is to develop a diagnostic and provide direct measurements of the DC electric field in the RF sheath in front of the ICRF antenna. The data would serve as an input for the verification of computational models of RF sheaths. This would contribute to the better understanding of RF sheaths and the damaging effects they have on the antenna (density modification, variation of coupled power, impurity release &c.), leading to the optimization of the RF heating in the fusion devices.
