The 6th International Symposium on Plasmas for Catalysis and Energy Materials (ISPCEM) took place in Eindhoven from 10 to 12 July, 2024.How did you experience this conference?
The Taskforce for Applied Research SIA (Regieorgaan SIA) recently honoured three applications for L.INT lectorates. In the lectorates, universities of applied sciences and research institutes work together on a long-term basis. One of the lectorates concerns a collaboration between DIFFER and Fontys University of Applied Sciences.

The design of nuclear fusion systems involves many complex challenges. Lots of aspects need to be solved concurrently, and there are many problems that affect each other. Dependency structure modelling is needed in this process, says DIFFER PhD candidate Torben Beernaert.

With the progress of industrialization, the demand for energy has become increasingly enormous, and traditional fossil fuels cause serious environmental pollution. Hydrogen (H2), as a clean energy source, is environmentally friendly. Among the various methods, using sunlight to directly split water to produce H2 is undoubtedly the most attractive.

Cooling the exhaust of a fusion reactor involves many physical reactions. A computer model helps, but how do you make a model of something so complex? Jesse Koenders, PhD candidate at DIFFER, conducted experiments on the TCV research tokamak at the Swiss Plasma Centre in Lausanne.
