Stellarator Gyrokinetic Turbulence Simulation & Optimization

Purpose of this website is to provide information about the numerical investigation of micro-turbulence in stellarator configurations. The projects involve the massively-parallel Eulerian nonlinear gyrokinetic code GENE coupled to the geometry interface code for toroidal configurations GIST both developed at the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics (Garching and Greifswald). Areas of interest cover stellarator transport modeling, turbulence optimization and statistics, in contact with several collaborators.

Excellence is not an accident but always the result of high intention, sincere effort and intelligent execution. - Aristoteles
