The René Pellat prize, named after the great scientist who was once chairman for CNRS (French Scientific Research Council) and High Commissioner for CEA (French Agency for Atomic Energy), is awarded annually by the Plasma division of the French Physical Society. Highlighting the quality, the originality and the scientific contribution of advanced works, it recompenses a young researcher who has achieved remarkable results, either fundamental or applied, in plasma physics. Laureate of the René Pellat prize this year Hugo Arnichand has become the first scientist from the community of magnetic fusion plasmas to get this prize in the last 20 years. Based on experimental and numerical outcomes Hugo Arnichand has managed to identify the nature of a kind of fluctuations commonly observed in magnetic fusion plasmas. His outstanding results open interesting perspectives for better understanding of turbulence processes in fusion plasmas.
