Internship

The computational MSc thesis project is part of a theory-experiment collaboration effort between DIFFER and our industrial partner. The overall aim is to understand the fundamentals of new Fe-based model catalysts, and to tune them further for the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis of fuels using renewable energy. The fundamental aim is to know how Fe metal layers grow on different Cu metal substrates and how these newly grown Fe layers behave during the adsorption of atomic and molecular species, such as H, C, O, and CO, which are all needed for the synthesis of commercially valuable fuels.

Scientific

We expect applications from senior scientists who wish to lead our SF research programme, establish their own research group within this programme, and join the management team of the institute.

Internship

In a previous Master Thesis project a neural network regression was performed of the warm plasma Ordinary mode dispersion relation. In order to extend this work to the eXtraordinary mode, first a thorough analysis of the different mode branches of the X-mode is required. In particular, around the second harmonic resonance the warm plasma dispersion is characterized by a complex interplay between the fast X-mode and the Bernstein mode, which needs to be documented before a neural network regression can be attempted.

Internship

The 2D reduced MHD code RUTH is used to study the linear and nonlinear evolution of (neoclassical) tearing modes. Within this broad range of topics various thesis projects can be developed ranging from the implementation of more efficient numerical schemes to the implementation of additional physics models and effects such as the ion polarization current, cylindrical coordinates and radial asymmetries and the benchmarking of the effects on the nonlinear growth of the mode against the generalized Rutherford equation.
