Budget Plan

The capital costs of the laboratory equipment is minimized by making extensive use of existing facilities. The major capital investments are: (1) a tuneable laser + tungsten "artificial sun" light source, and a spectrometer for the MSFC lab; (2) a Helmholz coil plasma magnetization for DPX at Auburn; and (3) A computer/data acquisition hard/software for automating the data digitization. By far the major cost is in personnel, particularly in attracting a post-doctoral student to work full-time on the project.
