Required letter of intent due March 1, 2022.
The DOE SC program in Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) hereby announces its interest in receiving new applications from U.S. researchers to carry out frontier plasma science research on one or more of the collaborative research facilities (CRFs) and initiatives supported by FES General Plasma Science (GPS) program. These include the Big Red Ball (BRB) and Madison Symmetric Torus (MST) experiments at the Wisconsin Plasma Physics Laboratory (WiPPL) at the University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW-Madison), the Large Plasma Device (LAPD) in the Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF) at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA), the DIII-D Frontier Science Initiative at General Atomics (GA), the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment (MDPX) at the Magnetized Plasma Research Laboratory (MPRL) at Auburn University, the low-temperature Plasma Research Facility (PRF) at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), and the Princeton Collaborative Research Facility (PCRF) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). Interested principal investigators (PIs) must have already responded to the separate call for proposals from one or more of these facilities and been allocated experimental runtime to carry out their project.
