  1. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  2. DNA SEQUENCING BY HYBRIDIZATION ON SURFACES: DEVELOPMENT OF ULTRA-SENSITIVE TWO-DIMENSIONAL DETECTORS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED TO MAP AND SEQUENCE DNA IN THE HUMAN GENOME IS OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF GENETICS AND DISEASE PROCESSES. CURRENT DNA SEQUENCING PROCEDURES ALMOST UNIVERSALLY REQUIRE GEL ELECTROPHORESIS OF DNA FRAGMENTS, AND SEVERAL LABORATORIES ARE DEVISING PROCEDURES TO AUTOMATE AS MANY STEPS OF THIS PROCESS AS POSSIBLE. SEQUENCING BY HYBRIDIZATION (SBH) PROPOSED BY DRMANAC ET ...

  3. OIL-FIELD RESERVOIR CHARACTERIZATION WITH ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE DYNAMIC RANGE IMPROVEMENT IN TRACER DETECTABILITY

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF TRACERS TO TAG WELL GAS WHICH IS REINJECTED INTO OIL RESERVOIRS HAS ACHIEVED CONSIDERABLE SUCCESS IN CHARACTERIZING THE STRUCTURE AND GEOMETRY OF THE RESERVOIRS. IDEALLY, THE TRACER SHOULD BE DETECTABLE OVER A WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE, PARTICULARLY IN FIELDS WHERE LARGE VOLUMES OF GAS ARE INJECTED. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE ORDERS-OF-MAGNITUDE INCREASE IN DYNAMI ...

  5. "MAPPING BORON LOCATION IN CELLS USING SOFT X-RAY EMISSION SPECTROSCOPY".

    SBC: Consultec Scientific            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR MEASURING THE QUANTITY AND LOCATION, WITH SUBMICRON RESOLUTION, OF BORON IN BIOLOGICAL CELLS IN SUPPORT OF THE BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) PROGRAM. THIS PROJECT THUS ADDRESSES THE MAJOR UNSOLVED TECHNICAL ISSUE IMPACTING BNCT CLINICAL EFFICACY. BNCT IS APROMISING RADIATION THERAPY IN WHICH NEUTRONS ARE USED TO ACTIVATE BO ...

  8. SURVEY OF TRANSIT-TIME AMPLIFIERS FOR APPLICATIONS TO HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS ACCELERATORS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH POWER TRANSIT-TIME AMPLIFIERS ARE A NEW CLASS OF RF SOURCE THAT CONVERTS THE KINETIC ENERGY OF AN ELECTRON BEAM INTO RF RADIATION IN A VERY EFFICIENT WAY. WHEN THE BEAM CROSSES THE CAVITY OF PROPER DIMENSIONS, IT WILL INTERACT WITH A SINGLE CAVITY MODE THEREBY RADIATING COHERENTLY AT THE MODE'S FREQUENCY. MODE GROWTH CONTINUES UNABATED UNTIL THE RF FIELDS ARE LARGE ENOUGH TO MODIFY THE BEAM O ...

  9. A NEW ELECTROSTATIC ACCELERATOR FOR POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF OUR PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP NEW MEANS OF PRODUCING SHORT LIVED RADIOISOTOPES FOR POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET). THIS MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUE IS CAPABLE OF DISCERNING AND IMAGING MEDICALLY INTERESTING PHENOMENA, SUCH AS THE ACTIVITY OF VARIOUS PARTS OF THE BRAIN, OXYGEN FLOW IN THE BODY, AND OTHER QUANTITIES WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO DETERMINE BY ANY OTHER DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQU ...

  10. IMPROVED ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY PROCESSES USING NEW AND NOVEL SYNTHETIC COPOLYMERS CONTAINING LARGE AMOUNTS OF ACRYLAMIDE

    SBC: R. L. Clampitt And            Topic: N/A

    INDEPENDENTS IN THE MID-CONTINENT AREA INCLUDING OKLAHOMA AND KANSAS, NEED A NEW AND NOVEL WATER SOLUBLE POLYMER FOR INDEPTH MOBILITY CONTROL IN ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY (EOR) PROCESSES AT INTERMEDIATE TEMPERATURES OF 165 TO 200 FAHRENHEIT. PARTIALLY HYDROLYZED POLYACRYLAMIDES AND NATURAL POLYMERS HAVE HISTORICALLY BEEN THE PRODUCTS USED IN THIS REGION. AND IN ESSENTIALLY ALL OF THE EARLIER EOR PROJE ...
