  1. Diamond Fast Opening Switch for High Voltage, High Average Power X-Ray, Elec

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop an all-solid-state, compact, portable, multi-gigawatt poer modulator for electron and ion beam diodes, high power microwave and x-ray sources. This modulator is based on Inductive Energy Store (IES) using an array of Diamond Opening Switches for power compression. Because power amplification using IES requires a much smaller volume ...

  2. Compact, Rugged, Flexible Fiber Optic Interferometer for Sensitive Gas and P

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new type of interferometer that is compact and portable and can be used to make in-situ measurements of gases and plasmas. This interferometer uses polarization maintaining optical fibers and diode lasers to duplicate the capabilities of existing Mach-Zender interferometers that use dicrete optical elements such as mirrors, lenses ...

  3. Diamond Real Time, Integrating Dosimeters

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of real time integrating diamond radiation dosimeters. In Phase I AASC will demonstrate the feasibility of using diamond radiation detectors for monitoring personnel radiation dose. The sensitivity of these detectors will be determined and a concept design for a pocket real time dosimeter will be completed. The Phase ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A DYNAMIC OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL TO SUPPORT RISK MANAGEMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ACTIVITY WITHIN THE NRC AND THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY SEEKS TO EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS OF PRA IN RISK-BASED APPROACHES TO RELIEVE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE ECONOMICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE ACCIDENT PREVENTION GROUP HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPT OF AN INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (IRMP) TOWARD SUCH GOALS. A KEY ELEMENT OF AN IRMP IS AN "OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL" OF THE NPP THA ...

  5. RESPONSE OF SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS AND ELECTRONICS TO TRANSIENT RADIATION

    SBC: Amador Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN EXPERIMENT IS PROPOSED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT TRANSIENT X-RAY RADIATION FROM THE PHYSICS INTERNATIONAL PULSERAD 1150 FLASH X-RAY MACHINE WILL CAUSE A REPRESENTATIVE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTS) DEVICE TO MALFUNCTION BY REVERTING TO NORMAL CONDUCTIVITY. INTEREST IN THIS PHENOMENON IS MOTIVATED BY THE ANTICIPATED INCORPORATION OF HTS THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY IN DEFENSE ELECTRONICS, ESPECIALLY ...

  7. Increasing Bremsstrahlung Output with a Clean Diode

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The DM1 module that is a building block of DSWA's DECADE simulator has excellent electrical performance, but the final radiation pulse is erratic and often unsatisfactory. The probable cause is a parasitic current in ions, or through a diode plasma. This proposal is to evaluate a diode configuration that should suppress ions and plasma, namely a cathode of carbon fibers covered with cesium iodid ...

  8. Hard X-Ray Spectrometer for Use During Radiation Tests and High Gain/Bandwidth Integrated Photodetec

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a differential absorption spectrometer that is small enough to be compatible with a test package in a bremsstrahlung test of electronics. In contrast to previous spectrometers, which use individual filter-detector combinations, the present instrument consists of concentric hemispherical shells. This design minimizes the spectrometer's mass, allowing it to be placed in front ...

  9. Silicon-on Diamond Technology for Radiation Hardened Electronics

    SBC: Crystallume/edi            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this program is to develop a silicon-on-insulator technology (SOI) using CVD diamond films as insulators. Such structures should permit the fabrication of integrated circuits with performance capabilities superior to those fabricated using conventional SOI structures including silicon-on-Sapphire (SOS), SIMOX, Epitaxial Layer Overgrowth (ELO) and Bond Etchback SOI (BESOI). Diamond ...

  10. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...
