  1. A 5 W, 700 GHz Gyrotron for Scattering Diagnostics in Burning Plasmas

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 21a

    As the fusion science research advances towards the demonstration of practical reactors for commercial adoption there is a growing need to develop diagnostic systems for monitoring various plasma parameters in real time for control and shaping of the plasma density and profile.Recent, experiments have demonstrated the potential of a high-k Scattering system for studying turbulence physics studies ...

  2. A BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR NEUTRON DETECTOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SINCE THEIR DISCOVERY NEUTRONS HAVE REMAINED ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT FORMS OF RADIATION TO DETECT. THE MOST EFFECTIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS IN CURRENT USE ARE GAS FILLED DETECTORS EMPLOYING EITHER 3HE OR BF3 AS THE DETECTION MEDIUM. UNFORTUNATELY, GAS FILLED DETECTORS SUFFER FROM A NUMBER OF DEFICIENCIES INCLUDING LARGE SIZE (GASES HAVE LOW VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY FOR STOPPING NEUTRONS), MECHANICAL FR ...

  4. A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A SEISMIC EARLY WARNING SYSTEM FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SHUTDOWN

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED OF A SEISMIC SCRAM-PROCESSING SYSTEM IN WHICH P WAVES FROM LARGE EARTHQUAKES ARE DETECTED AND ANALYZED IN TIME TO INITIATE A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CORE SHUTDOWN BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF LARGE, DAMAGING SHEAR WAVE PHASES. A PROTOTYPE SEISMIC SCRAM-MONITORING SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED AND IMPLEMENTED ON A SUN 3/160 ENGINEERING WORKSTATION. IN THE PROPOSED SYSTEM, SEISM ...

  6. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  7. A LOW PRESSURE DROP GAS PHASE ALKALI METAL SCAVENGER

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED COAL GASIFICATION COMBINED CYCLE POWER GENERATION IS AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND AND FLEXIBLE TECHNOLOGY THAT COULD PROVIDE AN ECONOMICALLY ATTRACTIVE OUTLET FOR THE VAST COAL RESOURCES OF THE UNITED STATES. TO CAPTURE FULLY THE POTENTIAL, TREATMENT OF THE SYNTHESIS GAS TO REMOVE OBJECTIONABLE ELEMENTS IN A HOT, HIGH PRESSURE STREAM IS ESSENTIAL. VOLATILE TRACE ALKALI METALS HAVE BEEN FOUN ...

  8. A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED DNA GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IMAGE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Genetics Data Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED INSTRUMENT FOR QUANTITATING SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA AND RNA) SEPARATED ACCORDING TO SIZE BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS. THE STARTING POINT FOR ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENCE-STAINED DNA IN GELS WILL BE THE IMAGE DIGITIZATION OF THE ENTIRE GEL ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERN (OR SPECIFIED PORTIONS OF IT) SO THAT THE RELATIVE INTENSITIES OF F ...

  9. A Novel Catalytic Reactor For Conversion Of CO2 Into Benzene

    SBC: Susteon Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Almost 15 million metric tons per year of essentially pure CO2 is captured in the United States from ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, and natural gas processing plants. Some of this CO2 is used for merchant applications such as food and beverage and other applications, but a large portion of this captured CO2 is emitted to the atmosphere. This CO2 can be converted into high value chemicals, but the key ...
