DE-FOA-0001762Collaborative Fusion Energy Research in the DIII-D National Program7/13/2017 12:00 AM ET9/21/2017 05:00 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) Program of the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby announces its interest in receiving grant applications for collaborative research in fusion energy science as part of the DIII-D national research program. The mission of the DIII-D program is to establish the scientific basis for the optimization of the tokamak approach to fusion energy production. The primary means to accomplish this mission is research utilizing the DIII-D tokamak to develop the ultimate potential of the tokamak concept as a magnetic confinement system. The DIII-D program also involves foundational fusion energy science research to make progress on a broad front toward predictive understanding of fusion plasmas. The major strengths of the program are the highly flexible and well-diagnosed DIII-D tokamak and a large collaborative research team from the national and international fusion community. All applications will utilize the DIII-D National Fusion Facility at General Atomics in San Diego, California. This includes modeling validation and verification proposals utilizing DIII-D data. All applicants (whether requesting support for individual researchers or groups of researchers) planning to submit applications for new or renewal support in Fiscal Year 2018 should submit applications in response to this FOA. Applications that are not primarily focused on research using the DIII-D tokamak are outside the scope of this FOA and should not be submitted under it. Applications solely requesting experimental run time on DIII-D are also outside the scope of this FOA and should not be submitted under it. The DIII-D program helps to build the scientific foundations for fusion energy by contributing to the fundamental understanding of magnetically confined plasmas and assessing the attractiveness of the advanced tokamak (AT) concept for future fusion applications. The program emphasizes research that aims to prepare the U.S. program for burning plasma operation in ITER, develop the physics basis for high performance, steady-state operation, and develop boundary solutions for future fusion devices. The flexibility and capabilities of the DIII-D actuator and diagnostic set enable a wide range of experiment/theory comparisons that advance the forefront of scientific understanding in these key research areas. Applications for collaborative research must target DIII-D program elements aligned with developing: 1) the scientific basis for the Burning Plasma Core, which includes transient control, research enabling Q=10 on ITER and the path to steady state; and 2) the scientific basis for Boundary Solutions, which includes detachment control, divertor optimization and investigation of new reactor-relevant wall materials. The DIII-D program is highly collaborative in nature, where participating scientists provide support to the entire research team in order to deliver all the elements needed for a scientific study on DIII-D (e.

Synopsis:
The DOE Traineeship in Accelerator Science and Engineering provides support to address critical, targeted workforce development in fields of study that are currently supported by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research awards. Up to two Cooperative Agreements may provide funding to universities or consortia of universities for up to two years of tuition, stipend, and travel support to students enrolled in specific accelerator science and engineering degree programs, and to provide a modest topic-specific curriculum development and program administration support. Award term is expected to be up to five years, with the possibility of renewal for a second term. This program does not support lines of Research and Development (R&D). Support for accelerator R&D is provided through the High Energy Physics (HEP) General Accelerator R&D and Accelerator Stewardship programs, through accelerator R&D programs elsewhere in DOE, and by other federal agencies. This program is to assist domestic institutions of higher education in enhancing their graduate-level educational efforts to ensure that a diverse and highly trained future population of scientists is available to conduct cutting-edge research in the basic sciences. By training the scientists of the future, this program will ensure the continued vitality of U.S. scientific endeavors that will create knowledge for the public benefit.

Synopsis:
The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) program in the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby announces its interest in receiving cooperative agreement proposals for research and operation of, and/or construction of, intermediate-scale facilities for frontier plasma science research. User facilities are sought that can address frontier plasma science questions in multiple research areas identified in the 2015 Frontiers of Plasma Science Workshops report. Specific research areas of interest include: •plasma dynamo (generation and amplification of magnetic fields); •magnetic reconnection (topological changes of the magnetic field lines); •particle acceleration by shocks, turbulence, and/or magnetic reconnection; •turbulent cascade and dissipation of energy in magnetized plasmas; and •formation of coherent structures in magnetized plasmas. Consistent with the recommendation made in the 2007 National Research Council report (Plasma Science: Advancing Knowledge in the National Interest by the Plasma 2010 Committee) and intermediate-scale research needs identified in the 2015 Frontiers of Plasma Science Workshops report, the goal of this FOA is to steward research that cannot be adequately addressed through small-scale, single-investigator projects (e.g., table-top experiments) and requires intermediate-scale facilities (e.g., experimental facilities larger than can be easily fielded by a single investigator but smaller than those at the larger national research installations). Excluded from this call are mainstream magnetic fusion energy research facilities (such as advanced tokamak, spherical torus, and stellarator) as well as inertial confinement fusion facilities (such as convergent laser-driven systems and z-pinches).
