for research pertaining to spherical tokamaks in Fiscal Year 202 0. Only applications for collaborative research focused on implementing and operating a diagnostic instrument and analyzing the resulting NSTX-U data should be submitted to this FOA.

Applicants may wish to search for DE-FOA-0002259 to see the details of the other FOA supporting research in spherical tokamaks.The Spherical Tokamak program helps to build the scientific foundations for fusion energy by both contributing to the fundamental understanding of magnetically confined plasmas and assessing the attractiveness of the spherical tokamak for future fusion facilities.

Applications for collaborative research must support the Spherical Tokamak program by addressing key scientific issues related to one or more of the following topics:
Macroscopic Stability, Multi-Scale Transport Physics, Plasma Boundary Interfaces, Plasma Waves and Energetic Particles, and Advanced Operating Scenarios and Control.
