The 26th joint German-Russian seminar on electron-cyclotron resonance heating and gyrotrons was held from July 22 to July 30, 2014 at the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Nizhny Novgorod. It continues a series of joint conferences on the development and experimental study of gyrotrons and their use in controlled nuclear fusion facilities. Traditionally, the seminar was attended by representatives of the IAP RAS, NRC “Kurchatov Institute”, the State University of Nizhny Novgorod, GYCOM Ltd., research centers and universities of Germany - Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Garching and Greifswald. In 2014, the seminar was held within the framework of the EU-Russia Year of Science and was partially funded by RFBR grant No.14-02-20120.

Such a long history and continued relevance of the event is due to the fact that the IAP RAS and KIT are the leading institutions in Russia and Europe, respectively, on the development of gyrotrons for electron resonance plasma heating and current control in the international TOKAMAK ITER. The latest results in the field of gyrotron development were presented, including high-frequency devices for spectroscopy and diagnostics of various media, technological gyrotron facilities for microwave processing of materials, as well as summary reports covering the history of joint activities on Wendelstein stellarators. The seminar was attended by 12 German representatives and more than 50 Russian scientists. According to the results of the seminar, a document defining the cooperation plans for the next year was signed and it was decided to hold the next traditional seminar in Greifswald, Germany.
