ARPAE - Accelerating Low Cost Plasma Heating and Assembly (ALPHA)
Rezwan Razani - October 05, 2014
ARPA-E is now accepting submissions for the development of fusion power. Concept paper deadline, October 14, 2014.
The funding scope is quite specific. More information here.
ALPHA seeks to develop and demonstrate low-cost tools to aid in the development of fusion power, with a focus on approaches to produce plasmas in the final density range of 1018-1023 ions/cm3 (at Lawson conditions). The program goal is to create a toolset that will allow a significant reduction in facilities costs for fusion development and to enable rapid learning through a high shot rate at a low cost-per-shot, enabling rapid progress along new learning curves towards economical fusion power
