The Department of Energy plans to award $10 million in funds through the Accelerator Stewardship program to support the development of novel compact particle accelerators. DOE said Monday it eyes to build portable technologies that may be utilized for security, energy and industrial purposes.
The technologies are envisioned to measure at least in tabletop size and will potentially assist in cancer treatments and medical applications.
Grant recipients will be chosen through a competitive peer-review process and may be given one to three-year awards. DOE national laboratories, universities, businesses and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for the funding opportunity.
