  1. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  2. Diaphragm Pressure Gauge

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Nuclear Weapons Effects Tests (NWET) frequently require that the test article be irradiated in an ultra-clean environment, making survivable shields a necessary part of many debris systems. Survivable shields as large as 12 inches in diameter are requiredbut have yet to be demonstrated in Plasma Radiating Source (PRS) environments. The loads on a survivable shield are a combination of radiation i ...

  3. Adiabatic Thermopile for Radiation Dosimetry

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Measurements of fluence from a Plasma Radiation Source (PRS) are critical to the performance of accurate Nuclear Weapon Effects (NWE) experiments. Fast, total stopping calorimeters have been demonstrated to provide a robust, reusable, economic sensor forfluence measurements. However, the output of these sensors is a few millivolts and thus high signal to noise recording is difficult to achieve, ...

  4. Fiber Optic Scintillator System for Detection of Beta Emitters in Groundwater

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

    70307 Many DOE sites have the need to monitor radionuclide contamination in surface water, groundwater, soils, and the vadose zone. In many cases, a real-time and/or remote monitoring capability is desired. Existing site characterization procedures typically involve the collection and shipment of samples to an off-site laboratory, which leads to costly delays in site remediation as ...

  5. Rugged High-Resolution Xenon Gamma-Ray Spectrometer

    SBC: Constellation Technology            Topic: N/A

    70794 Monitoring the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons requires the detection of penetrating radiation emitted by nuclear materials (NM). Gaseous ionization chambers, based on collecting the charge produced by the ionizing radiation inside the detecting medium, are widely used to detect this radiation. To eliminate the dependence of pulse-height distribution at points of interaction, ...

  6. Chemical Stimulation of Oil Wells Producing from Carbonate Reservoirs

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: N/A

    65017 Oil well formation damage is detrimental to the oil production rate and ultimate recovery from carbonate reservoirs that contain 3.7 billion barrels of proved domestic reserve. This project will develop an innovative well stimulation technique, based on laboratory measurements of wettability alteration coupled with artificial intelligence, to design well treatments. Phase I laborator ...

  7. Impulse Modeling and Characterization of Damage-Resistant Chamber Walls for Inertial Fusion Energy (IFE)

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    70509 In order to design survivable inertial fusion energy chamber wall structures and to design the condensing systems which restore the chamber vacuum, it is necessary to develop validated material models that can define X-ray induced impulse, ablation depths, and total ablated mass. There is an almost total lack of relevant materials data and there are no proven experimental techniqu ...

  8. Development of a New, Low Frequency, Rf-Focused Linac Structure

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70755 The acceleration of proton, light-ion, and heavy-ion beams are important for many scientific, medical, industrial, and defense applications. Developments that reduce the size, cost, and complexity of these accelerator systems would be welcome. The weakest link in most accelerator systems is the low energy end, where the disruptive effects of acceleration are the greatest and the ...

  9. Accelerator-Based, Epithermal Neutron Source for BNCT

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70454 Intense beams of epithermal neutrons, at sites close to major medical centers, are needed to advance the development of the boron neutron capture modality of cancer therapy. Particle accelerators are the top candidates to meet this need. This project will develop a new rf-focused drift tube linear accelerator structure as an economical source for these neutron beams. The source ...

  10. Durable Fiber-Optic Temperature Sensor for Coal Gasifiers

    SBC: Micromaterials, Inc            Topic: N/A

    70128 The efficient operation of coal gasifiers, a leading alternate energy technology, requires continuous temperature monitoring at several strategic locations within the reactor. However, the extreme temperature, pressure, and corrosiveness of the gasifier atmosphere makes this a difficult task, and existing temperature sensors are grossly inadequate for this application. This project ...
