Department of Energy announces $14.8 million for particle accelerators for science and society

Today’s US Department of Energy (DOE) Announced $14.8 million in funding for advanced research projects in particle accelerator science and technology.

Particle accelerators provide unique sources of light and particles that support the research of thousands of scientists worldwide, play a direct role in the production of the stuff worth more than $500 billion annually, and kill more than 5 million cancer patients each year. do treatment.

The DOE Office of Science Accelerator Management and Accelerator Development Program supports use-driven basic research and development (R&D) on accelerator technology that advances science, healthcare, the economy, and our safety, and supports domestic suppliers of accelerator technology. Supports public-private partnerships to strengthen ,

The 12 research projects involve scientists from 32 US institutions including 12 universities, 7 national laboratories and 14 companies working together to solve some of the most challenging problems in medical, industrial, environmental and security applications of accelerator technology .

“A growing list of scientific research, medical, security and industrial applications depend on accelerator technology,” said Steve Binkley, DOE Office of Science Principal Deputy Director, “The awards announced today will not only advance the state of the art but will help American companies compete in this important technology market.”

Projects include research to produce automated accelerator systems for rapid treatment and safety applications for cancer therapy; R&D to advance ultrafast laser technology, beam physics, and novel superconductors; and support public-private partnerships to strengthen R&D radiofrequency power sources and domestic commercial sources of electron sources.

The projects were selected by competitive peer review under the DOE Funding Opportunity Announcement for FY2022 under Accelerator Stewardship and Research Opportunities in Accelerator Development.

Total funding for projects with a duration of up to 3 years is $14.8 million, with $4.2 million in fiscal year 2022 dollars and out-year funding contingent on congressional appropriations. A list of projects and more information can be found here.
