Summary

The Office of Science is seeking new applications from U.S. researchers for the Research on General Plasma Science Collaborative Research Facilities grant. This grant aims to support frontier-level plasma science research on various collaborative research facilities, including the Big Red Ball (BRB) and Madison Symmetric Torus (MST) experiments at the Wisconsin Plasma Physics Laboratory, the Large Plasma Device (LAPD) at the University of California - Los Angeles, the DIII-D Frontier Science Campaign at General Atomics, the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment (MDPX) at Auburn University, and the low-temperature Plasma Research Facility (PRF) at Sandia National Laboratories, and Princeton Collaborative Research Facility (PCRF) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The funding instrument type is "Other" and the category of funding activity is "Science and Technology and other Research and Development". The award ceiling is $240,000 and the award floor is $40,000. The estimated total program funding is $2,000,000. The grant opportunity is open to unrestricted applicants. The closing date for applications is April 29, 2024. For more information, you can contact Nirmol Podder, the Program Manager, at nirmol.podder@science.doe.gov.

Description

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-level plasma science research on one or more of the FES General Plasma Science (GPS) Program supported collaborative research facilities (CRFs). 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, the Large Plasma Device (LAPD) in the Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF) at the University of California – Los Angeles, the DIII-D Frontier Science Campaign at General Atomics, the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment (MDPX) at the Magnetized Plasma Research Laboratory (MPRL) at Auburn University, and the low-temperature Plasma Research Facility (PRF) at Sandia National Laboratories, and Princeton Collaborative Research Facility (PCRF) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
