Scott Hsu, Ph.D., of Los Alamos National Laboratory (P-24 Plasma Physics Group) has been encouraged by ARPA-E (under Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-00011841) to submit a proposal for funding to develop the spherically imploding plasma liners as a standoff-driver for Magnetic Inertial Fusion. The proposal will request approximately $8 million in funding from the government and requires a $2M cost share from private investors and/or industry. The $2M cost share may be comprised of a mix of in-kind hardware contributions and cash, with the exact amount of cash needed still to be determined. Final proposal documents must be submitted by January 26, 2015.
For information on how to participate please email email@example.com.
