The DOE SC program in Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) and the NNSA Defense Program (DP) Office of Experimental Sciences jointly announce their interests in receiving applications for new and renewal awards for research in the SC-NNSA Joint Program in High-Energy-Density (HED) laboratory plasmas. Grant applications are sought in the following subfields and crosscutting areas of HED laboratory plasmas. This FOA solicits research efforts including experimental, theoretical, and/or computational science. Applications integrating experiments, theory, and simulation are particularly encouraged.

The specific areas of interest are:
1. HED Hydrodynamics
2. Radiation-Dominated Dynamics and Material Properties
3. Nonlinear Optics of Plasmas and Laser-Plasma Interactions
4. Relativistic HED Plasmas and Intense Beam Physics
5. Warm Dense Matter

Submission Deadline for Letters of Intent (required): December 21, 2023 at 5 PM Eastern Time
Letter of Intent Response Date December 28, 2023 at 5 PM Eastern Time
Submission Deadline for Applications: February 22, 2024 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Submission Process

Limited submissions MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research.

If interested in applying for this opportunity, email a two-page project abstract, include at top the project title, PI, and list of key collaborators, as well as a 2-3 page CV/biosketch for the PI (SCiENcv preferred) by 5pm on the INTERNAL DEADLINE above to Julie Morris at
