  1. Capillary discharge source for high fidelity, plasma radiation source loads

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Science based assessments of the response of systems and material to hostile nuclear environments require detailed verified material response and failure criteria for confident results. Consequently there is a need for the development of experimentaltechniques to measure low pressure equation of state parameters accurately and economically using radiation simulators. The development of a soft x- ...

  2. Large Area Survivable Shield Design

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The measurement of the variation of fluence from a Plasma Radiating Source (PRS) with polar angle is critical to the definition of the stimuli acting on an effects experiment using PRS diagnostics because in general experiments and diagnostics view thesource from different angles. The polar angle fluence distribution is controlled by the opacity of the pinch, which is a sensitive function of pinc ...

  3. Development of a Soft X-Ray Driven Flyer Plate System for Low Pressure Equation of State Studies

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Present reflex triode (RT) design performance is limited by debris shield response. The shield designs were derived empirically to satisfy specific experiment requirements. Optimizing the RT design will double target dose. Debris shield deformation definesthe closest permissible location of the test object and therefore determines the maximum dose achievable. The deformation of the debris shield c ...

  4. Reflex Triode Design Optimization

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Survivable shields are a necessary part of many soft x-ray debris mitigation systems that provide ultra clean test environments for nuclear weapons effects testing. Existing test requirements demand ultra large area survivable shields (12 inch diameter).Existing designs are limited to relatively small areas at low fluences and/or impose severe x-ray attenuation penalties. A methodology for the d ...

  5. Nano-Engineered Permanent Magnet Materials

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65507 Adhesive systems are needed for the assembly of detectors for high-energy physics applications, especially an adhesive that cures upon the application of an external stimulation, such as UV light. However, the end use of these detectors requires extensive shielding to protect the detectors from impinging stray light that might interfere with the small responses generated during subsequent ...

  6. Truss-Integrated Thermoformed Ductwork

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65544 Nuclear physics research requires large detectors that can detect particles with good spatial and time resolution. However, these devices are expensive to build and require high maintenance. They also require a large solid support structure, which adds to overall project cost. This project will integrate a new scintillator material into a fiber-optic-based array to produce a high-resolut ...

  7. A Novel Process for Producing Low Cost Sn-Ti Core Rods for Internal Tin Nb3Sn

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65437 In closed waste-storage systems containing either easily oxidizable metals or radioactive materials, molecular hydrogen is produced. If these closed containers have hydrogen impermeable shells or cases, the build-up of hydrogen gas may form an explosive or flammable mixture with any contained air. It may also present a corrosion problem for certain reactive metal elements that tend to for ...

  8. Improved Biological Catalyst for Oxidation of Alkanes

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65532 The recycling of mixed or contaminated plastic could save energy. However, the products of most recycling processes used today are of low quality and represent only a shifting of the problem by one product generation. This project will adapt an existing technology for the recycling of polystyrene waste from food service operations with the recovery of monomers and other valuable raw mater ...

  9. Production of Phenol Formaldehyde Resins from Recycled Composite Materials

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recycling of thermoset composite materials produces valuable fibers and a liquid hydrocarbon byproduct. The liquid hydrocarbons constitute a potential hazardous wastestream that could prevent the recycling process from being adopted on a large scale by government and industrial users. This project addresses the conversion of these liquid hydrocarbons into useful products. Phase I showed tha ...
