  1. Disruption Simulation Code for Tokamaks and ITER Applications

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 67c

    Arguably the most important issue facing the further development of magnetic fusion via advanced tokamaks is to predict, avoid, or mitigate disruptions. This problem recently becameone of the most challenging and hot topics in fusion research due to several potentially damaging effects, all of which can impact the ITER device. Among four disruption related topics: MHD dynamics, plasma edge physics ...

  3. New Electrolytes for Lithium-ion Cells

    SBC: Leyden Energy            Topic: 08d

    Commercially available lithium-ion cells use electrolytes containing a mixture of organic carbonate solvents combined with lithium hexafluorophosphate salt. These electrolytes have significant disadvantages limiting the performance and safety of large li-ion batteries for automotive applications: regular electrolytes are flammable and the instability of the salt causes battery performance degradat ...

  4. A 17 GHz High Gradient Linac having Molybdenum Surfaces in the Peak Electric Field, Dark Current Interception Regions of the Structure

    SBC: Haimson Research Corporation            Topic: 65a

    While design improvements have been achieved, considerable difficulty continues to be encountered in the development of accelerator structures for future linear colliders required to operate with long term reliability at loaded average accelerating gradients of 100 megavolts per meter and radio-frequency pulse lengths in the range of 150 to 250 nanoseconds. A recently completed series of high pow ...

  5. Compact 2 micron High Power Femtosecond Fiber Laser

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: 64d

    Low cost and compact high power and high repetition rate laser is a critical component for next generation high repetition rate accelerators for DOE HEP programs. However, current technologies are limited and breakthrough technologies are needed. PolarOnyx is to develop a 2 micron high power (kW) and high repetition rate (1-100 MHz) femtosecond fiber laser system (Polaris laser system). PolarOnyx ...

  6. High Current Density Long Life Cathodes for High POwer RF Sources

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 64e

    The power that can be produced by klystrons and other RF devices is often limited by the current emission density that can be extracted from the cathode. Operation of existing cathodes at high current density leads to dramatically reduced lifetime. Long life cathodes operating at high current density will allow development of higher power RF sources with improved performance. Control of barium dif ...

  7. Gated Field Emission Cathode RF Gun

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 64e

    High-brightness electron beams are required for a number of applications, from advanced accelerators to 4th generation light sources. However, the current technology for producing such beams requires an expensive, complicated laser system to drive a photocathode in a radio frequency gun. This technology is difficult to extend to high duty cycles, as is necessary for many applications in research a ...

  8. High Sensitivity Beam Position Monitors for 1300 MHz Croyomodules

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 63d

    The proposed International Linear Collider will require a high-accuracy beam position monitor (BPM) at each quadrupole magnet to aid with beam alignment and as an input to feedforward schemes to cancel alignment errors. In order to meet the requirements of ILC, the BPMs will require sub-micron position resolution, fast transient response, and a relatively large clear aperture of 78 mm. FAR-TECH, ...

  9. Highly Multiplexed, Low Cost Fiber-Optic Sensor Array for Underground Cables Condition Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: 57b

    Our nation has a significant underground cable infrastructure that represents 15% to 20% of installed electric distribution capacity (many millions of feet). A portion of this infrastructure is reaching the end of its design life or reliable service life. Complete replacement of old or failing cable systems is a costly option and, at any rate, unnecessary because, depending on their environment, ...

  10. Silicon Drift Detectors for High Resolution Radioxenon Measurements

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 53b

    The detection of radioactive xenon is an important component of both national and international efforts to detect nuclear explosions. Existing radioxenon detection systems have high sensitivity, but a better discrimination of Xe isotopes is desirable to better distinguish the radioxenon background created by nuclear power plants and medical isotope facilities from a nuclear explosion. Existing sys ...
