Pál Kostka is an electrical engineer, graduated in 1953 at the Technical University in Budapest. Since them he has been working at the KFKI Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics and the predecessors of the Institute. His field of activity covers engineering and research (design, development, construction, operation) at the facilities of the Institute, as the accelerators (5 MV Van de Graaff accelerator, Heavy Ion implanter, and former similar devices) and plasma physical device (former MT-1 tokamak). His main field of interest is high voltage and high current technique, ion optics, ion sources, vacuum technique.
