  1. Nanocomposite Polymers for Smart Window Films

    SBC: WAVEFRONT TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 33b

    75620S The energy used to remove cooling loads from windows in both residential and commercial buildings totals about 1.4 Quads (quadrillion BTUs/yr), representing a cost to building owners of about $12 billion per year. Significant savings could accrue if a ¿smart¿ window film technology were available, which could reduce these cooling and heating loads. This project will develop a "sma ...

  2. An Inexpensive, Efficient Neutron Monochromator

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    70585S02-II The most favored techniques for monochromatizing neutron beams, needed for medical, industrial and scientific purposes, are mechanical reflection and diffraction methods, both of which have limited efficiency and great cost. Furthermore, neutrons can be used for imaging, particularly for objects that are invisible to x-rays, light, or other techniques; however, neutron imaging has ...

  3. Development of Multiple-Beam Guns for High-Power Radio Frequency Sources for Accelerators and Colliders

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

    60150 The current generation of high power klystrons, used in accelerators for high energy physics research, operate at voltages between 400 and 600 kV. One of the major cost drivers for these devices is the high operating voltage. Not only are the power supply costs significant, but the high voltage leads to increased circuit length, higher radiation hazards, larger insulating cera ...

  4. Development of a Three-Dimensional, Finite Element Charged Particle Code with Adaptive Meshing

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

    60459 The current generation of charged particle codes are unable to model practical three dimensional problems, such as those in high energy physics research, because of the large number of nodes required in the analysis. Without this design capability, it is not possible to develop many new, innovative devices that could dramatically advance the state-of-the-art in charged particle electro ...

  5. Development of a 50 MW Multiple Beam Klystron

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

    70188 For the ultra high-power, X-band klystrons required by the Next Linear Collider (NLC) and future high energy particle accelerators and colliders, the Department of Energy, in 1988, established the goal of achieving a radio frequency (RF) peak output power of 100 MW at a pulse width of 1 s. This goal has not yet been realized. In 1995, the goal was relaxed to a peak power of 75 MW and a ...

  6. 20 kW CW L Band Klystron for Driving Superconductor Accelerator Cavities

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

    70186S02-II A >13 kW CW klystron is required for driving the Jefferson Laboratory (JLAB) Accelerator upgrade. The klystron must operate at high efficiency, even when the drive power is reduced by 30% from the nominal maximum, without changing the cathode voltage. This project will develop a klystron with a modulating anode that will allow the beam perveance to change rapidly, in order to trac ...

  7. Discovery and Optimization of Cellobiohydrolase

    SBC: Diversa Corporation            Topic: N/A

    70920S02-II There is a need for more cost effective enzyme systems for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fermentable sugars for the production of ethanol. Cellobiohydrolase could be an effective enzyme for the efficient breakdown of lignocellulose, but little effort has been expended on improving the technical efficacy of this class of cellulases, either by harnessing natural biodiv ...

  8. Photonic Band Gap Lattice Cavities

    SBC: DULY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    70801S02-II Photonic band gap (PBG) structures have been proposed for applications as particle accelerators or high power microwave/millimeter wave sources. PBG structures have unique modal properties that cause some modes to be ¿trapped¿ within a portion of the lattice while other modes exist throughout the whole structure and can be attenuated away from the trapped mode. This project will ...

  9. A Polarized Electron RF Photoinjector

    SBC: DULY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    70802S02-II Future linear colliders require high brightness, polarized electron/positron beams for high energy physics experiments. Although photoelectrons with over 80% polarization have been produced in dc guns, the transverse emittance of the polarized electron beam from the dc gun is not low enough to meet the brightness and luminosity requirements of linear colliders. This project will ...

  10. An Ultra Low Emittance DC/RF Photoelectron Gun

    SBC: DULY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    70868S02-II The radio frequency (RF) photoinjector is one of the great accelerator inventions in recent years. Unfortunately, its performance is limited by space charge effects, particularly at the cathode where electrons are first created at thermal energies. The lowest emittance achieved so far is on the order of a few mm-mrad. However, future linear colliders and 4th generation light sour ...
