Schumer and Gillibrand announce $80 million for LLE in Senate bill

This Senate bill must now be reconciled with the House of Representatives’ bill, which included $68 million for LLE. Both bills reject the Administration’s budget request to cut the Lab’s FY19 funding dramatically and to phase out of all federal support for LLE in three years.

Funding aimed at fusion energy awarded to Laboratory for Laser Energetics, Sandia National Laboratories collaboration

The award seeks to build upon recent successes of Sandia’s Magnetized Liner Inertial Fusion (MagLIF) concept. The concept uses a laser to heat fusion fuel contained in a small cylinder as it is compressed by the huge magnetic field of Sandia’s massive Z accelerator.
