DOE Research on General Plasma Science Collaborative Research Facilities Program – Due 04/29/24; LOI Due 03/29

Opportunity Title:

Research on General Plasma Science Collaborative Research Facilities



Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science (SC)


Opportunity Number:




The objective of this FOA is to provide new, one-time, short-term, small “seed” funding for external collaborations with the GPS Program supported CRFs and increase participation at and productivity of these facilities. The FOA aims to provide an opportunity to external collaborators or users of these facilities to acquire experience and preliminary data; carry out data analysis and/or validation resulting in peer-reviewed publications; and transition to a full three-year research program available through other funding opportunity announcements.

Through the support of this research, the FES GPS Program plays a key role in training the next generation of plasma scientists and engineers. New applications are encouraged from first-time external collaborators or users, historically underrepresented communities, minority serving institutions (MSIs), primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs), and early career researchers.

The DOE SC program in Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) is interested in receiving new applications from U.S. researchers to carry out frontier-level plasma science research on one or more of the FES General Plasma Science (GPS) Program supported collaborative research facilities (CRFs) These include 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 Large Plasma Device (LAPD) in the Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF) at the University of California – Los Angeles, the DIII-D Frontier Science Campaign at General Atomics, the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment (MDPX) at the Magnetized Plasma Research Laboratory (MPRL) at Auburn University, and the low-temperature Plasma Research Facility (PRF) at Sandia National Laboratories, and Princeton Collaborative Research Facility (PCRF) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.

Topical Areas

The FES GPS program supports investigations in the following core research areas:

  1. Basic Plasma Science (BPS)

  2. Dusty/Non-neutral Plasma Physics

  3. Low Temperature Plasma (LTP) Science
