Hartmut Zohm

Hartmut Zohm is Director of the Tokamak Scenario Development Division at the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics located in Garching, Germany. His main fields of interest are the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability of fusion plasmas and their heating by Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH). By combining these two fields, he pioneered the active stabilisation of neoclassical magnetic islands, which set a major performance limit to the tokamak, by ECRH. His present field is the study...See more
