Award List:

A 200 km/s Plasma Accelerator for Magneto-Inertial Fusion and for Refueling Magnetic Fusion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: F. Douglas Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,994.00
Abstract:
75823-In magneto-inertial fusion, which offers the promise of a faster, lower cost path to fusion energy, a material liner is imploded to compress a magnetized target plasma to fusion conditions. In one approach, plasma-jet-driven magneto-inertial fusion, an array of pulsed plasma guns is utilized… More

Plasma Jet Injection of Angular Momentum in the Maryland Centrifugal Experiment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: F. Douglas Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,990.00
Abstract:
79317S The centrifugal confinement of plasma in a magnetic mirror machine would have great potential for achieving fusion energy if a sufficient rotation rate could be induced in the plasma. Current techniques have successfully utilized crossed electric and magnetic fields to induce rotation and… More

A 200 km/s Plasma Accelerator for Magneto-Inertial Fusion and for Refueling Magnetic Fusion Energy Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: F. Douglas Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $652,500.00
Abstract:
75823S In magneto-inertial Fusion, which offers the promise of a faster, lower cost path to fusion energy, a material liner is imploded to compress a magnetized target plasma to fusion conditions. In one approach, plasma-jet-driven magneto-inertial fusion, an array of pulsed plasma guns is… More

Plasma Jet Injection of Angular Momentum in the Maryland Centrifugal Experiment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: F. D. Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $749,848.00
Abstract:
The centrifugal confinement of plasma has great potential as a fusion device. In order to operate in the highest temperature and density regimes, angular momentum must be injected into the plasma without permitting the plasma to come into contact with a material surface. To accomplish this, the… More

MiniRailguns for Fusion and HEDP

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Franklin D. Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,996.00
Abstract:
The study of the merging and implosion of plasma jets can be used to enhance the understanding of the physics behind the generation of fu¬sion energy using Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF). In addition, the study of merging plasma jets can provide insight into basic physical processes of… More

Plasma Jet Liner Formation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Franklin Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,989.00
Abstract:
An understanding of the merging and implosion of plasma jets is critical to understanding the physics needed to generate fusion energy using Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF). This project will address one element of this problem by developing shaping nozzles for the plasma jets currently under… More

MiniRailguns for Fusion and HEDP

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Franklin D. Witherspoon, Dr.
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
Magneto-inertial fusion and high-energy-density plasmas represent a promis­ing approach to the generation of fusion energy. In this area of fusion research, the ability to compress a magnetized target plasma, without the need to replace a solid driver, is crucial to further development. … More

10MHz, 10k-Pixel Fast Fiber-Coupled Imaging Devices for Plasma Diagnostics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Samuel Brockington, Dr.
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
High speed imaging of plasmas is limited to relatively short record lengths and is very expensive. Portions of the tradeoff space where slightly reduced spatial resolution allows gains in record length and reduced costs are poorly explored. HyperV Technologies Corp. proposes to construct a 100… More
