Prof. Geiger delivers a lecture about HSX for students at Charkiw University

The Charkiw Lectures are a series of lessons introducing the stellarator concept for magnetic confinement fusion. The lectures address master and Ph.D. students with a background in general physics. Prof. Geiger contributed to this lecture series with a 90 min seminar on “Key results and future directions of the HSX stellarator”.
