  1. Multiphoton Emission Enhancements for High Repetition Rate Photoinjectors

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 14a

    The development of high quality, high power electron beam photoinjectors is of great interest to free electron lasers and energy recovery linac facilities. One major hurdle is the achievement of high quantum efficiency (QE) from photoinjector cathodes. Semiconductor cathodes offer high efficiency, yet require ideal vacuum conditions and cryogen cooling. Metal cathodes are more prompt and robust wi ...

  3. An Aerosol Mobility Imager for Rapid Size Distribution Measurement

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 31e

    Atmospheric aerosols influence the earths radiation balance through direct scattering and absorption of radiation, and through alteration in the formation, brightness and extent of clouds. The concentrations and size distribution of aerosols aloft is important to these effects. Needed is a method to capture the size-resolved vertical profiles of those particles in the 10 600 nm size range that do ...

  5. Biofilm Remediation of Hydraulic Fracturing Flowback Water in the Marcellus Shale

    SBC: Frac Biologics, Inc.            Topic: 28a

    Frac fluids are viscous solutions that are pumped under high pressure to fracture subsurface formations for recovery of natural gas. As it is pumped to the surface, the flowback water picks up large quantities of various contaminants that make it difficult to dispose or recycle. Though this water contains hazardous substances such as heavy metals (i.e. copper, lead, zinc, and cadmium), arsenic, se ...

  6. Development of High Current 2G High Temperature Superconductor Cabling Technology

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 66c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 Kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. A new method of fabricating a high current cable with 2G HTS tapes has been developed that will improve the engineering current density achievable. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Fut ...

  7. Robust, Long Life Photocathodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Development is in progress on free electron lasers, synchrotron radiation light sources, and other advanced particle beam devices. A key component of the electron gun is a high efficiency photocathode. A serious issue is cathode lifetime, which is often a few hours. There is a need for advanced photocathodes that are efficient, robust, and capable of long life. The proposed program will utilize re ...

  8. High Power RF Windows for Accelerator Applications

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 14e

    High power RF windows are failing due to single surface multipactor. A more effective and robust technique is required to address this problem. This program will investigate two approaches for addressing multipactor failure in high power windows. The first will explore improved methods for depositing surface films to reduce secondary electron emission. The second approach will investigate changes ...
