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 building will be designed over the next year with construction to start in 2024 along with the tear-down of the Theory Wing and part of the Lyman Spitzer Building (LSB) Administration wing. Construction would conclude in 2026/27.

The multimillion-dollar building will include state-of-the-art laboratories and office space to support new research in the quantum materials and devices and microelectronics fields. PPIC will replace the aging Theory Wing next to LSB, 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.
