  1. ADVANCED ACCELERATORS BASED ON SUPERCONDUCTING BAND GAP STRUCTURES

    SBC: Accsys Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES A NEW TYPE OF HIGH Q RESONANT STRUCTURE, WHICH HAS RECENTLY BEEN DEMONSTRATED, TO DEVELOP HIGH GRADIENT, SUPERCONDUCTING ACCELERATOR CAVITIES. BASED ON THE CONCEPT OF A PHOTONIC BAND GAP (PBG) RESONATOR, THESE NEW STRUCTURES ARE PHYSICALLY SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM THE RESONANT CAVITIES CURRENTLY USED IN NORMAL SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES. A RESONANT MODE SUITABLE FOR ACCE ...

  3. A HIGH ENERGY FAR-INFRARED SOURCE FOR COLLECTIVE THOMSON SCATTERING DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    A CRITICAL NEED EXISTS FOR A DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE THE ENERGY DISTRIBUTIONS AND DENSITIES OF CONFINED ENERGETIC ION COMPONENTS IN DEUTERIUM-TRITUIM (D-T) BURNING FUSION TOKAMAKS (E.G., CONFINED ALPHA-PARTICLES WITH 3.5 MEV BIRTH ENERGY). COLLECTIVE THOMSON SCATTERING (CTS) IS RECOGNIZED AS THE MOST ATTRACTIVE APPROACH FOR OBTAINING THIS INFORMATION. A CO2 LASER-PUMPED FAR-INFRARED (FIR) ...

  4. REMOTE LEAK SURVEY CAPABILITY FOR NATURAL GAS TRANSPORT STORAGE AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS IMPORTANT TO DETECT NATURAL GAS LEAKS FOR WORKER SAFETY REASONS AS WELL AS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS. THE ACCEPTED TECHNIQUES FOR DETECTING SUCH LEAKS ARE BASED ON SLOW AIR SNIFFING SYSTEMS THAT DETECT THE MAJOR CONSTITUENT OF NATURAL GAS (METHANE) THROUGH CHEMICAL MEANS. ALTHOUGH AIR SNIFFING TECHNIQUES ARE SENSITIVE, THEY ARE SLOW AND MUST BE EMPLOYED IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF TH ...

  5. ADVANCED FARE PAYMENT MEDIA

    SBC: Echelon Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF SMART CARDS FOR THE PUBLIC TRANSIT INDUSTRY HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. THERE IS A PERCEPTION THAT SMART CARDS CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE TOTAL TRANSACTIONCOSTS ASSOCIATED WITH FARE PAYMENT, TO IMPROVE SECURITY, REDUCE FRAUD AND IMPROVE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THESE CLAIMS; THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY R ...

  6. A THERMAL COMPOSITE PLASMA FACING MATERIAL

    SBC: Energy Science Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MATERIALS EROSION IN THE HIGH TEMPERATURE RADIATIVE ENVIRONMENT OF THERMONUCLEAR REACTORS SEVERELY LIMITS DESIGN OPTIONS. LOWER SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND REDUCED EROSION OF OF THE PLASMA FACING MATERIALS MAY BE ACHIEVED WITH COMPOSITE MATERIALS DESIGNED TO HAVE ENHANCED HEAT CAPACITY AS WELL AS HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. EXISTING DESIGNS ARE BASED ON GRAPHITIC MATERIALS THAT HAVE GOOD THERMAL CONDU ...

  7. A 17 GIGAHERTZ TRAVELING WAVE RELATIVISTIC KLYSTRON FOR HIGH GRADIENT ACCELERATORS

    SBC: Haimson Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    PARAMETRIC STUDIES OF NEXT-GENERATION ELECTRON LINEAR COLLIDERS AND RESULTS PRESENTED DURING THE LAST THREE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOPS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT EARLIER CONTENTIONS THAT THE MOST FAVORABLE CHOICE OF LINAC FREQUENCY IS IN THE RANGE OF 10 TO 20 GHZ, WITH PARTICULAR INTEREST IN THE UPPER END OF THE BAND. ALTHOUGH CONSIDERABLE INTEREST EXISTS IN 17 GHZ LINEAR COLLIDER CONCEPTS-AND SOME RESEARCH ...

  8. AN 11.4 GIGAHERTZ 800 MEGAWATT PHASE STABLE RADIO FREQUENCY GENERATOR

    SBC: Haimson Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS APPLICATION, IN SUPPORT OF ONGOING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS AT LAWRENCE BERKELEY LABORATORY AND THE LAWRENCE LIVERMORE NATIONAL LABORATORY (LLNL), INVESTIGATES THE MEANS OF PROVIDING AN EFFICIENT (>50%), PHASE-STABLE SOURCE OF HIGH RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) POWER (800 MW) SUITABLE FOR HIGH GRADIENT, 11.4 GHZ LINEAR ACCELERATOR APPLICATIONS. IN PHASE I, EFFORTS ARE DIRECTED AT (1) ANALYTIC ...

  9. POWER CONDITIONING FOR EFFICIENT, EFFECTIVE REMOVAL OF NITROGEN AND SULFUR OXIDES AND TOXIC MATERIALS FROM EFFLUENT GASES

    SBC: Integrated Applied Physics,            Topic: N/A

    PULSED CORONA DISCHARGE TREATMENT OF FLUE GASES FOR EFFLUENT CONTROL HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR EFFECTIVE REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES (SOX), NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX), AND VARIOUS OTHER TOXIC MATERIALS. PULSED PLASMA PROCESSING HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR REMOVING NOX, SOX AND SOOT FROM POWER PLANT EFFLUENT GASES AND DIESEL ENGINE EXHAUST. THIS METHOD REQUIRES REPETITIVE PULSED POWER SYSTEMS ...
