CX-000790: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Infrastructure Improvements for Innovative Confinement Concept (ICC) Experiments with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Funding
CX(s) Applied: B3.13
Date: 01/13/2010
Location(s): New Jersey
Office(s): Princeton Site Office, Science

The proposed action would consist of the following Innovative Confinement Concept infrastructure improvement projects: (1) Completion of the Lithium Tokamak Experiment to adequately investigate the consequences of low recycling boundaries on magnetically confined plasmas; (2) Fabrication of an x-ray crystal spectrometer for the Large Helical Device Stellarator in Toki/Japan for Doppler measurements of the ion temperature profiles; and (3) Upgrade of the Princeton Field Reversed Configurataion experimental facility to explore the physics of transport and stability in a Field Reversed Configuration plasma sustained by enhanced radio-frequency heating. No tritium will be used in these projects.
