  1. FINE COAL BENEFICIATION USING AN INEXPENSIVE AND SAFE TRUE-HEAVY-LIQUID

    SBC: Clarke Rajchel Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF RESEARCH TO BE PERFORMED UNDER THIS CONTRACT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE APPLICATION OF A NEW TYPE OF TRUE-HEAVY-LIQUID (THL) AS A METHOD OF CLEANING FINE COAL. THE METHOD WILL BE SHOWN TO BE INEXPENSIVE DUE TO THERELATIVE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEAVY LIQUID AND THE ABSENCE OF NEED FOR EXPENSIVE THL RECOVERY EQUIPMENT. THE METHOD CARRIES THE BENEFIT OF BEING ENVIRONMENTALLY BENIGN. IN PHASE I ...

  2. THE EFFECT OF POLYMER ADDITIVES AND RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THECRYOGENIC PERFORMANCE AND RADIATION RESISTANCE OF INSULATORSFOR HIGH-FIELD MAGNETS

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF ACCELERATORS, FLEXIBILIZERS, AND METALLIC AND NONMETALLIC RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THE CRYOGENIC FATIGUE LIFE OF INSULATING MATERIALS USED IN SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS. THESE ADDITIVES ALTER THE CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF EPOXY-RESIN SYSTEMS AND THUSWILL AFFECT THE RESPONSE OF THE MATERIAL TO RADIATION AND LOW TEMPERATURES. AN INTEGRATED, INNOVATIVE PROPRIETARY APPROA ...

  3. DETECTION OF ACID RAIN POLLUTANTS USING INFRARED LASERS PRODUCED BY STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING

    SBC: Comstock Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID RESPONSE, HIGH RESOLUTION DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF INFRARED (IR) ACTIVE POLLUTANT MOLECULES, SUCH AS S02, N0, AND N02. MINIATURE OPTICAL HEAT PIPES WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR THE GENERATION OF TUNABLE IR LASER LIGHT BY MEANS OF STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING (SERS). THE HEAT PIPES WILL USE ALKALI METAL VAPORS AT PRESSURE ...

  4. "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 ...

  5. SSC HIGH HEAD LIQUID HELIUM PUMP

    SBC: Cryogenic Technical            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A LIQUID HELIUM PUMP DESIGNED TO MEET REQUIREMENTS FOR LIQUID HELIUM CIRCULATION THROUGH SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER MAGNET STRINGS. THE PUMP IS A FOUR-CHAMBER POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT NUTATING MACHINE WITH LOW NPSH. IT IS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HIGH HEADS WITH LITTLE IMPACT ON EFFICIENCY FOR TURN DOWN RATIOS AS HIGH AS 5 TO 1. THE FOUR-CHAMBER DESIGN PROVIDES OUTLET FLOW WIT ...

  7. LIMITED COOL STORAGE FOR UTILITY DEMAND SIDE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS.

    SBC: Instatherm Co            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJORITY OF ELECTRIC UTILITIES OFFER TIME-OF-USE PRICING, TOGETHER WITH OTHER DEMAND SIDE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS, TO THEIR RESIDENTIAL / COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS. PROJECTIONS BY EPRI (EN-4815-SR) SUGGEST A PEAK REDUCTION OFABOUT 45 GIGAWATTS BY THE YEAR 2000, AS A RESULT OF THESE DSM PROGRAMS. PIVOTAL IN ACHIEVING THIS TARGET, IS THE 23 GIGAWATTS PEAK DEMAND REDUCTION TO BE ATTRIBUTED TO TIME-OF-USE ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBUST CAD-TO-GEANT INTERFACE FOR PHYSICS DETECTOR SPECIFICATION

    SBC: QUANTUM RESEARCH SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A USEFUL SOFTWARE INTERFACE CAN BE CONSTRUCTED THAT IS CAPABLE OF FAITHFULLY CONVERTING NORMAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) OUTPUT FILES INTO A FORMAT THAT IS DIRECTLY READABLE BY THE GEANT HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS DETECTOR SIMULATION CODE. GEANT, ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED IN THE 1970S, HAS EMERGED AS A STANDARD TOOL FOR DETECTOR SIMULATION; ...

  10. METHOD OF PRODUCING CARBON CLUSTERS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NANOMETER-SCALE AGGREGATES OF ORDER 10 TO 100 ATOMS, KNOWN AS CLUSTERS, HAVE GENERATED A GREAT DEAL OF INTEREST IN RECENT YEARS DUE TO THEIR POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS AS CATALYSTS, OPTICAL MATERIALS AND ELECTRONIC MATERIALS. STABLE CLUSTERS OF CARBON HAVE BEEN OBSERVED AND A UNIQUE SPHERICAL STRUCTURE SIMILAR TO THAT OF A SOCCER BALL HAS BEEN PROPOSED FOR THEM. CARBON CLUSTERS ARE GIVEN THE NAME FULL ...
