  2. DETECTION OF ACID RAIN POLLUTANTS USING INFRARED LASERS PRODUCED BY STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING

    SBC: Comstock Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID RESPONSE, HIGH RESOLUTION DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF INFRARED (IR) ACTIVE POLLUTANT MOLECULES, SUCH AS S02, N0, AND N02. MINIATURE OPTICAL HEAT PIPES WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR THE GENERATION OF TUNABLE IR LASER LIGHT BY MEANS OF STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING (SERS). THE HEAT PIPES WILL USE ALKALI METAL VAPORS AT PRESSURE ...

  3. INCREASED SPEED IN DNA SEQUENCING BY UTILIZING LARIS TO LOCALIZE MULTIPLE STABLE ISOTOPE LABELED FRAGMENTS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MAPPING AND SEQUENSING THE DNA IN THE HUMAN GENOME IS OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE TO FUTURE MEDICAL ADVANCES AND ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS. UTILIZATION OF DNA PROBES LABELED WITH DOZENS OF STABLE ISOTOPES INSTEAD OF A SINGLE RADIOISOTOPE COULD INCREASE THE RATE OF SEQUENCE DETERMINATION 100-FOLD OR MORE COMPARED TO CURRENT METHODS. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES A NEW APPROACH, LASER ATOMIZATION RESONANCE IONIZAT ...

  4. AN ADVANCED ROBOTIC MANIPULATOR FOR THE INTEGRAL FAST REACTOR FUEL CYCLE FACILITY

    SBC: Remotec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEMONSTRATION TESTING OF ADVANCED PROCESS EQUIPMENT IS EXPECTED TO CONFIRM THE FEASIBILITY OF THE INTEGRAL FAST REACTOR (IFR) FUEL CYCLE PROCESS AT THE HOT FUEL EXAMINATION FACILITY - SOUTH (HFEF-S) ON THE ARGONNE-WEST SITE IN IDAHO. TEST RESULTS WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN OF A COMMERCIAL IFR FUEL CYCLE FACILITY. THIS PROJECT CONTRIBUTES TO DEVELOPMENT OF A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR AN ADVAN ...

  5. AN IN-VESSEL AND EX-VESSEL SMALL VOLUME REMOTE MAINTENANCE SYSTEM FOR THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK

    SBC: Telerobotics International,            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE MAINTENANCE OF THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK (CIT) POSES FORMIDABLE CHALLENGES BECAUSE OF ITS INTERNAL DIMENSIONAL CONSTRAINTS, DIVERSITY OF MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS, AND GEOMETRICALLY INTRICATE ARRANGEMENT OF EXTERNAL SERVICE EQUIPMENT. THESE CHALLENGES MUST BE ADDRESSED TO SUPPORT FUTURE "HOT" OPERATION OF THE PRINCETON PLASMA PHYSICS LABORATORY (PPPL) CIT. PHASE I INTRODUCES A SINGLE SOLUTI ...

  6. APPLICATION OF NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AUTOMATED INSPECTION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT PIPING

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF BUTT-WELDED STAINLESS STEEL PIPE JOINTS IN NUCLEAR POWERPLANTS IS ROUTINELY PERFORMED USING ULTRASONIC NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION METHODS. FIELD EXPERIENCE, BASED ON CONVENTIONAL ULTRASONIC SIGNAL AMPLITUDE CRITERIA, SHOWS THAT A LARGE NUMBER OF INDICATIONSARE RECORDED. MOST OF THESE ARE NOT CAUSED BY CRACKS, BUT THE WELD GEOMETRY AND IMPEDANCE MISMATCH BETWEEN THE WELD AND THE B ...

  7. SURFACTANT FLUSHING/WASHING--AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL ARE ORIENTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL SURFACTANT FLUSHING AND WASHING AS A LOW-COST, LOW-IMPACT, LOW-RISK, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOVAL AND ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN SOIL. THESE OBJECTIVES ARE: DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONIC SURFACTANT SOLUTION AT CONCENTRATIONS ABOVE THE CRITICAL MICELLE CONCENTRATION ...

  8. APPLICATION SPECIFIC, DISCRETE JUNCTION FET DESIGNED FOR USEIN LARGE PARTICLE DETECTOR PREAMPLIFIER CIRCUITRY

    SBC: Interfet Corp            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED ELECTRONICS IN THE PREAMPLIFIER CIRCUIT OF CALORIMETER DETECTORS IS DESIRED TO IMPROVE THE ABILITY TO COLLECT DATA FROM HIGH ENERGY ACCELERATORS FOR PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS. EXTREMELY LOW NOISE AMPLIFICATION IS REQUIRED TO AVOID POOR SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIOS SINCE ANALOG SUMS OF ALL THE DETECTOR SIGNALS ARE PERFORMED FOR TRIGGER PURPOSES. FAST SIGNAL PROCESSING SPEED IMPOSED BY THE EVENT RATES ...

  9. ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED CHROMATOGRAPHY FOR MONITORING PHOTOCHEMICALDETOXIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTES

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY FOR EFFLUENT MONITORING IS THE RELATIVELY LOW SPEED OF ANALYSIS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPH WHICH WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF EFFLUENT SAMPLES IN JUST A FEW SECONDS. THE HEART OF THE NEW INSTRUMENT WOULD BE A MICROBORE COLUMN WITH AN INTERNAL DIAMETER OF 50 MUM O ...

  10. A TECHNIQUE FOR MEASURING DIFFUSION OF HYDROGEN ISOTOPES IN OXIDES

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SURFACE METAL OXIDE AND OXYHYDROXIDE LAYERS HAVE BEEN IMPLICATED AS TRITIUM TRAPS IN STAINLESS STEELS. A NEW TECHNIQUE IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR MEASURING HYDROGEN ISOTOPE DIFFUSION WITHIN THIS LAYER AND WITHIN PERMEATION BARRIERS MEANT TO LIMIT TRITIUM INVENTORY IN THESE MATERIALS.
