Quantum Information Science Research for Fusion Energy Sciences

The FES mission is to expand the fundamental understanding of matter at very high temperatures and densities and to build the scientific foundation needed to develop a fusion energy source.

This is accomplished through the study of plasma, the fourth state of matter, and how it interacts with

its surroundings across wide ranges of temperature and density; developing advanced diagnostics to make detailed measurements of its properties and dynamics; and creating theoretical and computational models to resolve essential physics principles.Among the approaches that FES relies upon to maximize the public benefit of research within DOE’s Congressionally-authorized mission-space is to identify the most promising emerging advances in science and technology that can have a transformative impact and accelerate progress toward its goals and objectives .

In addition, research supported by FES has led to spinoff applications beyond fusion energy research that have had significant impact on several areas, advancing societal interests and strengthening U. S. competitiveness .

QIS research is relevant to and addresses both of these characteristics of the FES program.

QIS is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary field and has been identified as an important cross-cutting topic with potential impact across all SC program offices.

The July 31, 2018, OMB Memo on the FY 2020 Administration Research and Development Budget Priorities explicitly lists quantum information science among the areas where continued leadership is critically important to our nation’s national security and economic competitiveness.
