Description: The DOE SC program in Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) hereby announces its interest in receiving grant applications from U.S. researchers for carrying out frontier plasma science experiments. The FES General Plasma Science (GPS) program currently supports several collaborative research facilities and initiatives. These include the Large Plasma Device (LAPD) in the Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF) at the University of California – Los Angeles, the DIII-D Frontier Science Initiative at General Atomics, 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 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, and the Princeton Collaborative Research Facility (PCRF) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. Interested U.S. researchers or principal investigators (PIs) must have already responded to the separate call for proposals from one or more of these facilities and initiatives and been allocated experimental runtime to carry out the experiments.
