  1. Ultrasonic Inspection for Neck/Shoulder Cracks in Aluminum Gas Cylinders

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    Recent catastrophic failures of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) aluminum gas cylinders and similar air tanks have generated the need for a highly reliable, low cost inspection method to insure the integrity of these tanks. The failures of these tanks have been the result of crack formation in the neck and shoulder area. The cracks originate from the interior wall and can re ...

  2. A SENSITIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGING DETECTOR FOR COLD NEUTRONS

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL PHOTOSTIMULABLE PHOSPHOR IMAGING TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED TO REPLACE BULKY COUNTING SYSTEMS CURRENTLY USED IN NEUTRON DIFFRACTION AND SCATTERING INVESTIGATIONS. THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PROPOSED DETECTOR CAN BE VARIED TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE THE DETECTION SYSTEM CLOSER TO THE SCATTERING SAMPLE, THEREBY INCREASING THE NEUTRONS AVAILABLE FOR DETECTION AND SHRINKING THE SIZE OF THE EXPERIME ...

  3. Innovative Magnetic NDE System for Micromagnetic Imaging

    SBC: SFA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project is investigating the application of magnetic recording and micromachine technologies to the development of a novel magnetic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system. Magnetic NDE methods based on Barkhausen signal detection and analysis can provide valuable information about the state of stress of steel materials. However, Barkhausen signals do not appear to be correlated with the ext ...

  4. Diode Pumped Nd:LuAlO3 Laser

    SBC: METASTABLE INSTRUMENTS, INC            Topic: N/A

    The optical pumping of helium at 1083 nm is proving useful in applications involving magnetometry, polarized electron sources and neutron spin filters, but existing sources at 1083 nm are limited in efficiency, lifetime, reliability, compactness and power. The crystal laser material Nd:LuAlO3 (neodymium doped lutetium orthoaluminate) has ideal spectroscopic properties, but previous growths have d ...
