Previous DNA contracts developed the ACE 4 quarter-scale DECADE prototype. The ACE 4 opening switch required optimization. This effort was in two phases Phase I, plasma source optimization and Phase 2, ACE 4 switch optimization. Phase I included development of a slow flashboard plasma source and a multi-channel laser interferometer to measure the density and uniformity produced by the old flashboards and a 15 scale version of the new plasma source.
