The Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik, IPP) is a physics institute for the investigation of plasma physics, with the aim of working towards fusion power. The institute also works on surface physics, also with focus on problems of fusion power.
It owns several large devices, namely
- the experimental tokamak ASDEX Upgrade (in operation since 1991)
- the experimental stellarator Wendelstein 7-AS (in operation until 2002)
- the experimental stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (awaiting licensing)
- a tandem accelerator
The International Max Planck Research School on Bounded Plasmas is a graduate program offering a Ph.D. The school is run in cooperation with the University of Greifswald.
