  7. Power Tunable High and Narrowband THz source for THz Pump X-ray Probe Experiments

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 04b

    Most time resolved studies to date have made use of readily available visible and near-visible pump sources to trigger the events and, thus were able to study only a small subset of phenomena. Recently, investigations of the dynamics stimulated by THz pulses have led to advances like the selective control of an insulator metal transition, discovery of light induced superconductivit ...

  8. Metal Plasmonic Nanostructures Functionalized by Atomic Layer Deposition of 2A Metal-Oxides for Robust High-Quantum-Efficiency Ultrafast Photocathodes

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 05a

    High quantum efficiency (QE) photocathodes are central for efficient photoinjectors and ultra-fast electron microscopes. Current high QE photo cathode materials like GaAs, alkali-tellurides and alkali-antimonides require ultra-high vacuum and even then have a short life time. Moreover, most of these materials require an ultraviolet light source to operate. Photoemission using a light source in the ...

  10. Next Generation Superconducting Strands for Current Distribution Systems

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 35b

    Presently Hyper Tech is collaborating with CERN on MgB2 superconducting distribution cables. While the present generation of MgB2 wire is good enough for small scale cable demonstrations, there is a need to further improve the strand, specifically the minimum bend radius. There are basically two approaches to bringing about the improvement: either increasing the irreversible strain limit or reduci ...
