Opportunity: High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas


Descriptions of the Research Programs and the Applications Solicited under this FOA. Grant applications are sought by this FOA that address the recommendations of the 2003 report Frontiers in High Energy Density Physics The X Games of Contemporary Science, the intentions of the 2007 Report of the Interagency Task Force on high-energy-density physics, and the research needs identified by the 2009 Research Needs Workshop. Proposed research efforts can include experimental, theoretical, and/or computational science. Applications integrating experiments, theory, and simulation are encouraged. Specifically, grant applications are sought in the following subfields and cross-cutting areas of HEDLP, as described in the Report of the ReNeW in HEDLP, with additional scope indicated specifically below: (i) High Energy Density (HED) Hydrodynamics (ii) Magnetized High Energy Density Plasma (iii) Nonlinear Optics of Plasmas (iv) Radiation-Dominated Dynamics and Material Properties (vi) Relativistic HED Plasmas and Intense Beam Physics (vii) Warm Dense Matter (viii) High-Z Multiply Ionized HED Atomic Physics (ix) Diagnostics for HEDLP Applications for renewals of all grants funded by FES in HEDLP that expire in FY 2011 should be made to this solicitation. Also in this funding cycle, SC wishes to expand discovery-driven fundamental HEDLP physics research and HEDLP community-development activities, especially in the areas associated with facilities made possible by the ARRA-funded LCLS-MECI and NDCX-II projects at Stanford University and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, respectively. Examples of community-development activities may include partial support for a community-coordinated series of workshops, a community-accessible platform for data sharing and compilation, and user-oriented support. LCLS MECI is the LINAC Coherent Light Source Materials under Extreme Conditions Instrument experimental end station at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. ND
