  2. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system developed by Cornell in the mid-1990¿s for the CESR-B machine. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design limits. Required increases in inp ...

  3. High Power Fundamental Power Coupler for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Future third generation light sources, such as the NSLS-II synchrotron light source proposed for Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), push the operating current and subsequent beam power to levels beyond the capabilities of single CESR-B/KEKB cavities. The proposed light source requires 500mA and 1000kW of radiated beam power that must be provided through the power couplers/windows. The develop ...

  4. Development of Alternative Reduced-Cost Helium Vessels for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The International Linear Collider (ILC) represents the next great undertaking for the worldwide high energy physics community. In addition to technical challenges posed by the project, the political realities demand a reduction in the cost of the components of this massive facility. The helium vessels that enclose each of the 16,000 superconducting cavities have been identified as a cost driver ...

  5. Optically Pumped High Power Solid State Switch

    SBC: APPLIED PULSED POWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced high-power solid state switches are desired to improve energy efficiency, increase lifetime, and decrease operating costs of RF accelerators. This project will develop compact, low cost, optically pumped silicon switches that can achieve (1) current risetimes less than 50 ns while operating at up to 10 kA peak current, (2) di/dt > 100 kA/µs, and (3) a capability of blocking >5 kV. The ...

  9. High Performance Networks- Compilation and Optimization of Protocol Analyzers

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: N/A

    In times when critical national infrastructure depends more than ever on digital networks, the prevention of cyber attacks, as opposed to reacting after security has been compromised, becomes a chief concern. Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) systems serve an indispensable role in proactively preserving the integrity of computer networks under cyber attacks. However, two independent trend ...

  10. Advanced Static and Dynamic Scheduling of HPC Applications on Petascale Computer Systems with GPU Accelerators

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: N/A

    What has been holding back General Purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) until now has been programmability. At present, to take advantage of GPGPUs' potential, application developers must hand-optimize their code, which is expensive and difficult. This project will develop an advanced compiler that, when combined with a GPGPU, will enable the code optimization process to be conducted autom ...
