  1. Superconducting Wollaston Prism for Spin Echo Scattering Angle Measurement

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 09b

    Neutron Scattering has been an extremely productive materials science probe for over 60 years. It is no exaggeration to say that any technology that uses plastics has benefitted from it in some way from Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS). Unfortunately, SANS is limited to studying molecular structures with sizes between 1 to 100 nm and so often misses larger details. Similarly, neutron radiogra ...

  2. Robust RF Photocathodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 33e

    Existing high quantum efficiency (QE) photocathodes experience very short lifetimes, often only a few hours. Because of the fabrication expense for these cathodes, commercial use is impractical for most applications. Photocathodes with long lifetime are needed to make photoguns cost effective for commercial applications. CCR and the University of Maryland are applying controlled porosity reservoir ...

  3. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Present day photoinjector cathodes have poor lifetime or inadequate quantum efficiency for advanced applications. In addition, the efficiency is constrained by the frequency up-conversion in the drive laser from infrared to ultraviolet photons. Novel nanofabrication techniques allow for the sub-wavelength patterning of hole array surfaces on the cathode. Exploiting the surface plasmon resonance co ...
