Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20d
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

One daunting challenge facing future plasma burning fusion reactors is the extreme conditions that expose plasma-facing components (wall materials) are exposed to. Extreme particle and heat fluxes exceeding 10-20 MW/m2 drive traditional material surfaces out of equilibrium and induce topographical and compositional changes that can have deleteri...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Superconducting magnets used for plasma confinement in magnetic fusion energy systems operate at cryogenic temperatures. The support structures used to hold them in place act as a heat leak path from room temperature areas to the superconductors. This results in the need for additional cryogenic refrigeration capacity, which is expensive. High-s...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21
Budget: 06/13/16 - 02/12/17

Nuclear fusion is one of humanity’s grand challenges offering a non-fossil fuel, green energy source that is inherently safe and clean. There is a critical knowledge gap in fusion energy development on how the plasma-material interface correlates to plasma performance. Driving this gap is a lack of robust, in-situ and in-process diagnostics that...
