 OpenStar TechnologiesDarren GarnierDirector - Plasma Science Large Business Other Energy Technologies The investigator led experiments on the Levitated Dipole Experiment, a joint project of MIT and Columbia University. OpenStar Technologies is a New Zealand startup that is taking up from where LDX ended a decade ago. In its next machine, OpenStar will produce fusion relevant plasmas and will need to solve its first wall problem. Dipoles, which are inherently steady state devices, will allow very long pulses where the plasma first wall must come into equilibrium, something not common on current and some future fusion devices. This allows meaningful experiments on first wall materials to be undertaken in dipoles. In addition, the large vacuum vessel and not interlocking coils, easy in iteration of first wall experiments in a dipole device.

 SRI InternationalAustin WeiSenior Engineer Non-Profit Other Energy Technologies SRI has a diverse and strong portfolio in ceramic matrix composites including scalable, infiltration-free CMC (SIF CMC) manufacturing, CMC additive manufacturing, fiber-matrix interface coating, and environmental barrier coating.
The foundation of the SIF CMC is a preceramic polymer which maintains sufficiently low viscosity to impregnate the fiber tow and brings the char yield of the fiber-reinforced polymer to over 90%.
• SIF CMC is suitable for fabricating structures for the fusion first wall, replacing reduced-activation steel, due to its nature of high-temperature mechanical properties.
• Compared with other CMC manufacturing methods, SIF CMC is capable of fabricating large and complex-shaped structures because it can maintain the molded dimension by limiting the pyrolysis shrinkage.
• SIF CMC can incorporate specific materials to benefit the first wall with special neutron absorption, radiation stability, and moderation requirements.

SRI is interested in applying the SIF CMC as the structural material in the first wall with tunable properties to reduce plasma erosion.

We are looking for partners with expertise in the following areas: exploring ceramic options to improve their interaction with neutron, and testing and analyzing neutron/ceramic interaction.

 University California San DiegoSergei KrasheninnikovProfessor Academic Other Energy Technologies Our Applied Plasma Theory Group at UCSD has a long history of the study of plasma interactions with plasma-facing components in both Magnetic and Inertial confinement fusion devices. Along with analytic and semi-analytic models, we are using the state-of-the-art plasma transport codes SOLPS-ITER and UEDGE coupled to our in-house dust transport code DUSTT, and the code FACE effectively describing the transport of hydrogen species and helium in the material of plasma-facing components in the MCF devices. This package allows us self-consistent simulation of plasma-wall interactions in magnetic fusion devices including wall erosion, re-deposition of eroded material, dust formation, dust dynamics and ablation in fusion plasmas, tritium retention, and helium bubble formation in the material of plasma-facing components.
Our in-house 0-D model of plasma-wall interactions in an ICF device utilizes our Collisional Radiative Atomic and Molecular Data (CRAMD) code and allows us to provide the calculations of both plasma heat and particle fluxes to the plasma-facing components and finile optics. This model could be relatively easily updated to 1D and coupled with our DUSTT and Face codes to account for dust formation and transport in the ICF chamber as well as tritium retention, and helium bubble formation in the material of plasma-facing components.

 Idaho National LaboratoryMasashi ShimadaDistinguished Staff Scientist Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Other Energy Technologies INL's Safety and Tritium Applied Research (STAR) facility hosts and operates various experiments that can help accelerate material testing for the ARPA-E Fusion First Wall Material Discovery FOA and the mission of SC Fusion Energy Sciences program.
Tritium behavior in materials determines two key safety evaluation source terms: in-vessel inventory source term (i.e., tritium retention) and ex-vessel release term (i.e., tritium permeation), which are used in reactor safety assessments for licensing fusion facilities.
INL's Fusion Safety Program has been measuring tritium retention and permeation in fusion material at the STAR facility from 1990's.

Brief description of INL's capabilities:
- The STAR facility is a DOE Less Than Hazard Category 3 nuclear facility located at the INL’s Advanced Test Reactor Complex. The STAR facility is licensed to handle tritium inventory up to 1.6 g (5.9x10^14 Bq) and moderately radioactive/neutron-irradiated materials. The STAR facility exists within a multi-room complex in two adjoining buildings located at INL’s Advanced Test Reactor Complex. This 4,000-square-foot tritium facility incorporates various high-risk radiological experiments to identify the potential risks and hazards associated with fusion safety, collect necessary data for safety analysis, and develop the fusion technologies needed to minimize the environmental impacts of fusion energy.

- Tritium Plasma Experiment (TPE) for exposing plasma facing component (PFCs) materials to
fusion divertor-relevant high-flux D/T/He plasma for plasma-material interaction study. This is the only existing linear plasma device that can introduce tritium in material, and also one of the only two existing linear plasma devices that can test neutron-irradiated materials in the world fusion community.

- Tritium Gas Absorption Permeation (TGAP) system for measuring diffusivity, solubility and
permeability of the radioactive isotope of hydrogen, tritium, in nuclear materials.

- Static Gas Absorption Permeation (SGAP) system for measuring absorption rate, diffusivity,
solubility and permeability of hydrogen and deuterium in nuclear materials

- Thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS) system, for measuring total amount of H/D/He from
bulk materials

- Tritium Migration Analysis Program (TMAP), for analyzing tritium behavior in fusion material. TMAP8 is MOOSE-based open-source code that allows high-fidelity 3D molding with massivel parallel computation capability.

 Energy for the Common GoodJane HotchkissPresident and Co-Founder Non-Profit Other Energy Technologies Ms. Hotchkiss has 35 years of experience bringing new energy technologies to market. In the late 80’s she helped build a market for “fringe” technologies. Today we know them as renewables such as: geothermal, wind and solar. Her career spans regulation, advocacy and private sector power generation. With ECG she now dedicates her expertise to building a public roadmap for fusion as a regulated, accepted, and welcomed green commercial choice. After graduation with a BA in history from Yale College, Ms Hotchkiss was a cowgirl in Wyoming and a journalist in New York State. Throughout her career she has placed the public's role first in policies, incentives, and valuations. (something likle this, I am trying to insert the role as a necessary screen for the value of any one of the teams' approaches

Energy for the Common Good (ECG) is a non-profit organization uniquely positioned to advance the acceptance of fusion energy as an integral part of a clean energy economy, for the common good. Our belief that fusion is a climate mitigation necessity is founded by careers spanning all aspects of renewable and clean energy, from advocating for the policies and incentives creating early markets for renewables, to technical project development navigating the complexities of project financing, plant siting, and grid transmission needs. We are a team with a history and focus on building replacement markets for fossil fuel in response to an advancing climate change timeline. The persistent gap between renewable energy and fossil generation allows its continued dominance over the world’s expanding energy needs. Fusion’s ability to replace fossil demands that we launch a coordinated campaign to prepare its future market.

ECG is committed to implementing an accelerated and strategic roadmap to support the development, adoption, and expansion of this zero-carbon, dense, and efficient power source in the U.S. and abroad. Our strategy is a targeted “hearts and minds” social and economic engagement campaign to lay the groundwork for the future of fusion energy. ECG engages on the thinking behind what the the materials are and how they impact 1) regulation intersecting with 2) the ability to move forward with Codes and Standards all of which and more determine the earliest needs for technical workforce training, and the ability we have to promote climate solution materials (green concrete, resine strengthened low carbon rebar and steel...)

 Realta Fusion Inc.Dominick BindlDirector of Technical Development Small Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear The primary mission of Realta Fusion - an early-stage, venture backed company spun out of the University of Wisconsin - Madison (UW) - is to deliver industrial process heat via fusion energy. Realta’s concept – the High-field Axisymmetric Magnetic Mirror Reactor (HAMMiR) – uses two simple, high-field axisymmetric mirrors at electron temperatures Te >20 keV to confine a thermonuclear central cell plasma in a tandem-mirror configuration. HAMMiR’s largest risks include plasma stability, plasma-facing-materials, and structural materials; risks which are exacerbated by Realta’s focus on high-grade process heat. Specifically, HAMMIR’s central cell first wall must contain a thermonuclear plasma, survive high neutron flux, high fusion product flux, and will operate near the blanket temperature (Tblanklet ~ 1000 ⁰C). HAMMiR uses direct-energy-conversion (DEC) systems to produce electricity directly from exhausted ions. This DEC system requires conductive components to withstand direct interaction with hot-ion jets in each of the two end-cells in continuous operation and with a high degree of operational availability.
Realta is leveraging a strong partnership with UW to de-risk HAMMiR and advance fusion science. Realta is also exploring collaborations with other universities, national labs, and private R&D firms. Specifically, Realta will benefit from sponsored research on WHAM, – Wisconsin High-field Axisymmetric Mirror. This simple-mirror fusion energy experiment will advance understanding of MHD stability in mirror plasmas and serve as a test-bed for plasma-facing materials including direct-energy conversion components in the end-cells. Beyond WHAM, Realta is designing the Break-Even Axisymmetric Mirror (BEAM), a prototype FES targeting first plasma in 2028 and expected to approach Qscientific = 1. BEAM will burn deuterium-tritium fuel with long pulse lengths. At such conditions, BEAM will serve as a volumetric neutron source and a platform for blanket and material testing. Realta’s R&D team is focused on HAMMiR’s materials science risks and expands on the subject matter expertise of Realta co-founder Prof. Oliver Schmitz, who works at the forefront of the plasma-first wall interactions, new material design, and innovation in manufacturing and maintenance methods. Realta will access 3rd party resources with complementary technologies and will entertain relationships in materials and design with the faculty experts at UW.
