Princeton Plasma Innovation Center (PPIC)


This state-of-the-art facility will serve as an international hub of fusion research incorporating two of the Lab's strengths: computation and engineering.

The multimillion-dollar building will include state-of-the-art laboratories and office space to support new research in microelectronics, quantum sensors and devices, and sustainability sciences — ushering in a new era at the Lab.

Construction is slated to start in 2024 along with the tear-down of the Theory Wing and part of the Lyman Spitzer Building (LSB) Administration wing. Construction will conclude in 2027.

PPIC will replace the aging Theory Wing next to main Lyman Spitzer Building, accommodate a growing number of staff at PPPL and provide space for research and support staff from the Tokamak Experimental Science, Theory, Computational Sciences, and Plasma Science and Technology Departments.
