DOE puts $9.35 million toward high-energy-density plasma research
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science (DOE-SC) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) on July 27 announced $9.35 million for 21 research projects in high-energy-density laboratory plasmas. High-energy-density (HED) plasma research, originally developed to support the U.S. nuclear weapons program, has applications in astrophysics, fusion power plant development, medicine, nuclear and particle physics, and radioisotope production.

The TCR program is working towards establishing and maturing the processes and procedures for adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) in the design and fabrication of nuclear structures, systems and components through a demonstration. A helium-cooled 3-MWt microreactor, TCR pushes the boundaries of complexity of core fuel and flow-channel geometries enabled by the AM in order to boost operational efficiencies.
In this special panel session, experts from the TCR program will present the approach and progress on the TCR instrumentation and control (I&C) system.
