  1. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    Increasing the steam temperature of supercritical boilers from 1,000F to 1,400F can raise the operating efficiency of next-generation AUSC coal-fired power plants from about 32% to about 42% and address compelling environmental issues, while also enhancing national security, domestic employment, economic stability, balance of trade and U.S. GDP through increased use of domestic coal. Low Cr conten ...

  2. High Energy Density Li-ion Battery with Enhanced Safety, Durability, and Sustainability

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: 10e

    Conventional Li-ion cells/batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles have difficulty meeting USABC goals for performance/cost that are required for commercially-viable EV. The prevailing large format pouch/prismatic has the advantage of low packaging weight/volume, 10% at cell level, but is doubled (100% increase) in transitioning to the battery. Aside from the reduced energy density (accommodatio ...

  3. Ultra High Power NSOM Probe Based on Low Loss High Refractive Index Contrast Nanoscale Tip Integrated with Laser and Detector

    SBC: Optonet, Inc            Topic: 16b

    Near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) offers the use of a nano-dimension light energy source with a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of light to achieve resolutions significantly (around 10 times) better than that of the usual optical microscope. NSOM has found wide usages and become an important measurement instrument for nano-technologies, nano-manufacturing, optical technologie ...

  4. Adjustable High Power Coax RF Coupler without Moving Parts

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 13c

    A 200 kW CW fundamental RF power coupler (FPC) with an adjustable in situ coupling factor would be highly desirable for a number of applications; for example, the 352 MHz light source at APS. The normal process of adjusting the coupling by rotational movement usually requires breaking the vacuum between the coupler and the RF cavity resulting in prolonged down-times and the risk of introducing con ...

  5. Photoinjector Efficiency Enhancement using Surface Acoustic Waves

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 14a

    Current and future synchrotron radiation light sources and free electron laser facilities are in need of improvements in Electron Gun Technology, especially regarding the cost and efficiency of photoinjectors. Novel electron gun features are needed to enhance the intensity and reduce the emittances of electron bunches produced at a high repetition rate using laser excitation. The generation of Sur ...

  6. Low-Cost Two-Stage Magnetron with Power Control for Project X

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 60c

    State of the art high intensity proton accelerators require the development of low cost, reliable RF sources with phase stability of less than 1 degree and amplitude control of +/- 15%. These power sources feed superconducting RF cavities for linacs capable of accelerating protons and ions up to several GeV. A two-stage phase-locked magnetron RF source based on the principle of reflection amplifie ...

  7. Highly Efficient Sources of Negative Hydrogen Ions

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 60e

    The development of H- ion sources with performance exceeding those achieved today is a key requirement for the next generation of high power proton accelerators. Project X at Fermilab needs a CW H- Ion Source that satisfies demanding performance specifications: 10 mA CW beam current with normalized transverse rms emittance 0.2 mm mrad, fast chopping capability, fast intensity variation, and long ...

  8. Achromatic Low-Beta Interaction Region Design

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 44c

    To reach high luminosity in a collider, its beam must be focused into a small-size spot at the interaction point (IP). Achieving such a small focal spot size requires expanding the beam to a rather large size at the final focusing quadrupoles. This is space consuming and leads to large chromaticity and chromatic beam smear at the IP. Compensating these chromatic effects proved challenging because ...

  9. Intense Radioactive Beams via a Compact Fission Source/Target

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: 44f

    The development of new rare isotopes production schemes, which are simple and can be implemented at low cost, is highly desirable for Nuclear Physics facilities such as FRIB. The Munich Accelerator for Fission Fragments (MAFF) project developed an interesting idea of using a position with high neutron flux near the core of a nuclear research reactor to drive fissions in a small UCx (1.2 grams of 2 ...

  10. High Radiation Environment Nuclear Fragment Separator Magnet

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 44f

    Magnets in the fragment separator region of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) facility would be subjected to extremely high radiation and heat load. Critical elements of FRIB are the dipole magnets which select the desired isotopes. Since conventional NiTi and Nb3Sn superconductors must operate at ~4.5 K, the removal of the high heat load generated in these magnets will be difficult. More ...
