  1. ULTRAFINE FILAMENT NBTI SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    MULTIFILAMENTARY SUPERCONDUCTORS WITH VERY FINE NBTI FILAMENT DIAMETERS RANGING FROM 5 TO 9 MICRONS HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED SUCCESSFULLY IN PRODUCTION QUANTITIES FOR ACCELERATOR MAGNET APPLICATIONS. THESE CONDUCTORS HAVE HIGH CURRENT DENSITY (3,000 A/MM(2) AT 5 T AND 1,250 A/MM(2)AT 8 T), LOW MAGNETIZATION, GOOD FILAMENT QUALITY ('N' (5T) = 60 AND 'N' (8T) = 35), AND LOW PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION CAU ...

  2. TL BA CA CUO THIN FILM SRF CAVITY

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF SUPERCONDUCTING RADIO FREQUENCY (SRF) CAVITIES IN ELECTRON ACCELERATORS CAN BE DRAMATICALLY EXTENDED WITH THE UTILIZATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTSC). WITH CRITICAL MAGNETIC FIELDS OF APPROXIMATELY 11,000 OE AT 2K OR 4 TIMES NIOBIUM, HTSCS OFFER THE POTENTIAL OF ACCERLERATING FIELDS OF 200 MEV/M WHICH WOULD SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF ELECTRON AND HEAVY ION L ...

  3. THIN FILM WSE2 PHOTOELECTRODES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    A PRIMARY LIMITATION OF PHOTOELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS IS PHOTOCORROSION OF ELECTRODE MATERIALS. ONE SOLUTION TO THISPROBLEM HAS BEEN TO APPLY ELABORATE CONDUCTING POLYMERIC COATINGS TO SENSITIVE ELECTRODES. AN ALTERNATIVE IS TO USE CORROSION RESISTANT ELECTRODE MATERIALS. GROUP VI METAL DICHALCOGENIDES, AND TUNGSTEN DISELENIDE (WSE2) IN PARTICULAR, HAVE SHOWN PROMISE AS INTRINSICALLY CORROSION RESIST ...

  5. THE EFFECT OF POLYMER ADDITIVES AND RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THECRYOGENIC PERFORMANCE AND RADIATION RESISTANCE OF INSULATORSFOR HIGH-FIELD MAGNETS

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF ACCELERATORS, FLEXIBILIZERS, AND METALLIC AND NONMETALLIC RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THE CRYOGENIC FATIGUE LIFE OF INSULATING MATERIALS USED IN SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS. THESE ADDITIVES ALTER THE CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF EPOXY-RESIN SYSTEMS AND THUSWILL AFFECT THE RESPONSE OF THE MATERIAL TO RADIATION AND LOW TEMPERATURES. AN INTEGRATED, INNOVATIVE PROPRIETARY APPROA ...

  6. SUPERHEATED DROP DETECTOR TO MEASURE THE D-D/D-T RATIO FOR NEUTRONS FROM PLASMA CONFINED FUSION

    SBC: Apfel Enterprises Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF A FUSION GENERATOR DEPENDS, IN PART, ON ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS OF THE NUMBER OF NEUTRONS BEING PRODUCED FOR A GIVEN OPERATING CONDITION AND THE RATIO OF NEUTRONS FROM DEUTERIUM-DEUTERIUM AND DEUTERIUM-TRITIUM REACTIONS. DIRECT AND RAPID MEASUREMENTS OF THIS RATIO AT SEVERAL LOCATIONS ABOUT THE PLASMA CAN PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE UNIFORMITY OF NEUTRON PRODUCTION AS WELL AS THE R ...

  7. SSC HIGH HEAD LIQUID HELIUM PUMP

    SBC: Cryogenic Technical            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A LIQUID HELIUM PUMP DESIGNED TO MEET REQUIREMENTS FOR LIQUID HELIUM CIRCULATION THROUGH SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER MAGNET STRINGS. THE PUMP IS A FOUR-CHAMBER POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT NUTATING MACHINE WITH LOW NPSH. IT IS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HIGH HEADS WITH LITTLE IMPACT ON EFFICIENCY FOR TURN DOWN RATIOS AS HIGH AS 5 TO 1. THE FOUR-CHAMBER DESIGN PROVIDES OUTLET FLOW WIT ...

  9. SADDLE TOROID ARRAY HOMOGENIZING MIRRORS FOR SYNCHROTRON BASED X-RAY LITHOGRAPHY.

    SBC: Pxl, Inc.orporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED MIRROR WILL CONVERT THE LINE-SHAPED, GAUSSIAN CROSS SECTION X-RAY OUTPUT PRODUCED BY A SYNCHROTRON BENDINGMAGNET INTO A NEARLY SQUARE, UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED PATCH, IDEAL FOR PROXIMITY LITHOGRAPHY. INITIAL RAYTRACING AND CALCULATIONS INDICATE THAT THE MIRRORSHOULD BE 50 TO 100% MORE EFFICIENT THAN THE SYSTEMS CURRENTLY USED TO SPREAD AND HOMOGENIZE BENDING MAGNET RADIATION, AND WILL HA ...

  10. RECYCLABLE MOLDS FOR CASTING NUCLEAR FUEL

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    RECYCLING SPENT NUCLEAR FUEL IS AN ECONOMIC NECESSITY FOR THE INTEGRAL FAST REACTOR. AFTER THE FISSION PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED, THE IRRADIATED URANIUM FUEL MATERIAL CAN BE CAST INTO NEW FUEL RODS. THE CURRENT INJECTION CASTING PROCESS USES QUARTZ MOLDS THAT ARE NOT REUSABLE, SINCE THE MOLDS MUST BE BROKEN TO REMOVE THE CAST FUEL ROD. THE BROKEN MOLDS ARE RADIOACTIVE WASTE. HOWEVER, APPLICATION ...
