Opportunity: High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas


The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) program of the Office of Science (SC) and the Office of Stockpile Stewardship of the Defense Programs (DP) of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), both of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), jointly announce their interests in receiving grant applications for new awards and grant renewals for research in the SC-NNSA Joint Program in High-Energy-Density Laboratory Plasmas (HEDLP). All individuals or groups planning to submit applications for new or renewal funding in Fiscal Year 2012 should submit in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). A companion Program Announcement for DOE Laboratories (LAB 11-583) will be posted on the Office of Science Grants and Contracts web site at: Http://www.science.doe.gov/grants/pdf/LAB_11-583.pdf. The specific areas of interest are: 1. High-Energy-Density Hydrodynamics 2. Radiation-Dominated Dynamics and Material Properties 3. Magnetized High-Energy-Density Plasma Physics 4. Nonlinear Optics of Plasmas and Laser-Plasma Interactions 5. Relativistic High-Energy-Density Plasmas and Intense Beam Physics 6. Warm Dense Matter 7. Diagnostics for HEDLP 8. Community Development Activities More specific information on each area of interest is outlined in the general and program specific supplementary information provided in the FOA document. A FOA for the NNSA Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) program will be published separately in the coming months. That FOA is solely published by NNSA. It will include a call for Cooperative Agreements for the SSAA Centers of Excellence in the fields of Materials Under Extreme Conditions, Low-Energy Nuclear Science, Radiochemistry, and High-Energy-Density Physics. That FOA will also include a call for research grants in the fields of Materials Under Extreme Conditions, Low-Energy Nuclear Science, and Radiochemistry, but will fund no research grants in High-Energy-Density Physics.
