NSF ECosystem for Leading Innovation in Plasma Science and Engineering (ECLIPSE) Program - Due 08/13/24

Opportunity Title:

ECosystem for Leading Innovation in Plasma Science and Engineering


Funder/Agency:

National Science Foundation


Opportunity Number:

PD-24-110Z


Description:

The primary goal of the ECosystem for Leading Innovation in Plasma Science and Engineering (ECLIPSE) program is to identify and capitalize on opportunities for bringing fundamental plasma science investigations to bear on problems of societal and technological need within the scope of science and engineering supported by the participating NSF programs.


Examples of topical areas within the scope of the ECLIPSE program include but are not limited to:

  • Plasma surface interactions, with applications to, e.g., advanced manufacturing, materials processing, and catalysis.

  • Atmospheric pressure plasmas and microplasmas with applications to, e.g., microelectronics, plasma agriculture, environmental remediation, and other clean and decarbonized energy goals enabled by electrification of the chemical industry.

  • Dusty plasmas with applications to, e.g., development of nanomaterials, aerosols, and functionalized surface coatings.

  • Novel sensor development for highly non-equilibrium plasmas with applications to, e.g., cubesat-based geospace measurements and industrial plasma diagnostics.

  • Novel computational modeling for multi-component and/or multi-phase plasma systems with applications to, e.g., space weather prediction and plasma reactor design.

  • Novel studies of plasmons in nano-photonics and nano-optics with applications to, e.g., sub-THz wireless communication and photocatalytic chemical processes.

  • New chemical measurement science for characterizing processes occurring in plasmas and using plasmas as part of measurement systems with applications to, e.g., analysis of environmental contaminants or identification of forensic evidence.

  • Study of fundamental chemical reactions and mechanisms in plasmas with applications to, e.g., novel chemical synthesis.


Proposals submitted for consideration by this program should address societal or technological needs within the scope of science and engineering supported by the National Science Foundation. Proposals addressing technology development primarily supported by other US government funding agencies are not eligible for consideration and may be returned without review.


Proposals submitted for consideration by the ECLIPSE program should satisfy the following criteria:

  • Clearly articulate the fundamental scientific and/or engineering challenge in plasma science and engineering that may be relevant to more than one NSF program; and.

  • Provide a substantive discussion of how a resolution of the stated scientific and/or engineering challenge will address specific societal and/or technological needs identified as priorities by the research communities, policymakers and/or other stakeholders.


Eligibility:

Unrestricted


Deadline:
