  3. A High-Resolution Transverse Diagnostic Based on Fiber Optics

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Next generation light sources and advanced accelerator facilities create ultrashort electron bunches with complex transverse distributions. They demand high-resolution beam profile information that is currently limited to approximately 50microns. Structures on the microscale are not resolvable, thus limiting the efficacy of diagnostics. A novel transverse diagnostic based on fiber optics will be ...

  6. Acetic Acid Recovery Using Membranes


    Recovery and recycling of acetic acid from aqueous streams is an important industrial separation that is high cost and energy intensive when performed by conventional technology. This makes acetic acid recovery a tantalizing target for a more efficient, lower cost, simpler approach such as membrane technology. However, the required separation performance, combined with the need for robust chemic ...

  8. Advanced Design of Quasi-Optical Launchers for Fusion Plasma Heating

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60176 Current high power gyrotron tubes, used for heating fusion plasmas, produce power in high order TE modes, which are converted to a Gaussian like mode through use of an internal mode converter and launcher. However, these converter systems typically achieve only 85-90% efficiency for conversion of cavity output power to a usable Gaussian mode, leading to significant efficiency degra ...
