(29-01-2019) Early November, PhD students from all over Europe gathered at ITER for the Fusenet PhD event, to present their work, hear about the recent developments in fusion, and get to know each other. PhD student Ana Kostic won the Best Presentation Award.

The PhD students presented their work in 3 poster sessions. A selected number of students (16) got the opportunity to give an oral presentation of their research in a particular and demanding format: PechaKucha. The presentation has to be prepared such that it fits in 20 slides, which run automatically each for 20 seconds, while the presenter provides the narrative.

Ana Kostic gave a talk on 'Measurements of electric field in plasma sheaths' and her presentation was voted to be the best one. Ana is a student at the Department of Applied physics (EA17) at Ghent University (Promotor Prof. K. Crombé) and is doing her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics on IShTAR. IShTAR is a linear plasma experiment to investigate the interaction of ICRF antennas with the plasma edge.  Ana received as prize a genuine piece of superconducting wire used for the ITER busbars (see photo).
