Call: EIC Pathfinder Open 2022
Start Date: 01/01/2023
Duration: 48 months

V4F aims to show proof-of-principle of a new technology capable of unprecedented control over interactions of light with specially synthesised targets that significantly improve the energy balance of aneutronic fusion reactions.

New concepts and advanced simulations of inertial confinement of aneutronic fusion reactions and particle acceleration will inform pioneering experiments in high-energy light/matter-interactions. Results could offer the prospect of breakthrough increases in alpha-particle yields from fusion reactions and mitigate the instabilities found in conventional fusion reactions.
