The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik, IPP) is a physics institute investigating the physical foundations of a fusion power plant. The IPP is an institute of the Max Planck Society, part of the European Atomic Energy Community, and an associated member of the Helmholtz Association.
It owns several large devices, namely
- the experimental tokamak ASDEX Upgrade (in operation since 1991)
- the experimental stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (in operation since 2016)
- a tandem accelerator
- a high heat flux test facility (GLADIS)
- Tokamak Scenario Development
- Plasma Edge and Wall
- Stellarator Heating and Optimization
- Stellarator Dynamics and Transport
