As a national physical society, and member of the European Physical Society, our goal is to promote physics and support physicists. For this purpose, we organise a range of activities and membership benefits.
On these pages you will find information about membership, and about the BPS general meeting. Also archived issued of B-Phy, our electronic magazine, can be downloaded, and there is a job section for those of you seeking employment.
For the development of the new highly efficient 3-ion heating scenario for Ion Cyclotron Resonant Heating (ICRH), the American Physical Society (APS) awarded the joint team consisting of members of LPP/ERM-KMS and of the Alcator C-Mod group at MIT, with the prestigious Landau-Spitzer Award "for experimental verification, through collaborative experiments, of a novel and highly efficient ion cyclotron resonance heating scenario for plasma heating and generation of energetic ions in magnetic fusion devices."
To show experimentally that the theoretically derived new ICRH scenario is indeed very efficient is the work of Yevgen Kazakov and Jef Ongena of LPP/ERM-KMS. First experimental successes were achieved in October 2015 on the tokamak Alcator C-Mod in collaboration with John Wright and Stephen Wukitch of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Plasma Science and Fusion Cente...

Are you active in the nuclear or radiological sector?
Or are you professionally confronted with ionising radiation?
The postgraduate course Radiation Protection Expert is just what you need.
This training course provides a broad -scientific and technological- view on radiological and nuclear techniques in their dimension, and is conform the requisites of the Royal Decree of 20 July 2001 for the 'Qualified expert in health physics' (art. 73.2).
The postgraduate course Radiation Protection expert is a collaboration between Universiteit Hasselt School of Expert Education (UHasselt SEE), the Nuclear Technological Centre NuTeC (UHasselt) and the SCKâ€¢CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology. A parallel training track is organised in French by IRE and ISIB.
