Department of Energy Announces $6.5 Million for Research on High Energy Density Science
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science and DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced a plan to provide up to $6.5 million to support work related to High-Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas (HEDLP).
PPPL scientists create insight into perhaps the most extreme state of matter produced on Earth
Exotic laser-produced high-energy-density (HED) plasmas akin to those found in stars and nuclear explosions could provide insight into events throughout the universe. Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have discovered a new way to measure and understand these plasmas, among the most extreme states of matter ever produced on Earth.
