Personal profile


Professor Salewski works on developing fusion energy into a future energy source. He works with measurements of energetic particles in fusion plasmas by tomography, in particular in velocity-space and phase-space, which is the combined position- and velocity space. (see dr.techn. thesis). New developments include neural network and physics-informed prior information such as orbit tomography and slowing-down physics regularization tomography. The measurements are made on the tokamaks JET, ASDEX Upgrade, DIII-D, EAST, MAST and TCV and the stellarators Wendelstein 7-X and LHD by fast-ion D-alpha spectroscopy, collective Thomson scattering, neutron emission spectrometry, gamma-ray spectroscopy, neutral particle analyzers, fast-ion loss detectors, and ion cyclotron emission diagnostics. Professor Salewski is an ITER Scientist Fellow and serves as Chair for the ITPA Topical Group on Energetic Particle Physics that organizes a wordwide research programme to support the ITER tokamak. Professor Salewski enjoys teaching BSc-, MSc- and PhD-level courses and teaches at the moment Electromagnetism for Physicists, Plasma Physics, and the Physics of Sports.
