  1. In-Situ NDE System for Structural Integrity Inspection of Nuclear Graphite Components

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 14b

    The methods are sought for real-time in-situ monitoring of the irradiation performance of graphitic components in the cores of next-generation nuclear plants. Such structural monitoring is necessary because radiation-induced damage to graphite can lead to mechanical degradation, dimensional change, and porosity, which can compromise the safety of the operation of the reactor. The information on th ...

  2. 3 Micron High Energy Ultrafast Fiber Laser for X-Ray Science

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: 03b

    High energy and high power mid infrared laser is a critical component for next generation X-ray sources. However, current technologies are limited to efficiency, size and price. Breakthrough technologies are needed. PolarOnyx is to develop a 10 mJ 3 micron ultrafast fiber laser system (Sirius laser system). PolarOnyx has demonstrated modelocked seed fiber laser at 3 micron, 201 micro-J energy extr ...

  3. Efficient Distributed Collection and Analysis of Packet Delay Data for Secure Role-Based Export and Topological Mapping

    SBC: POLLERE, INC.            Topic: 01a

    Networked applications work very badly when delay variation (queuing delay) gets large but evidence shows that current queuing delays are barely tolerable and rapidly increasing. There are a plethora of commercial, home-rolled, open source, and university created tools, but none are capable of measuring and monitoring delay variation in real-time or isolating its root cause, thus this projects aim ...

  4. Developing Quantitative Capabilities for a Scanning Microwave Impedance Microscope

    SBC: PRIMENANO            Topic: 08b

    Currently no instrument exists to quantitatively measure electrical properties (dielectric constant and conductivity) on sub-micron regions, a capability of extreme importance to measure the functioning of sub-micron structures and devices. In particular, such electrical measurements could support the development and manufacture of advanced energy related materials used in technologies such as ph ...

  5. RF-Free Chirp Removal Using Longitudinal Wakefields

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 04b

    In X-ray Free Electron Lasers (FEL) the use of ultra-compressed beam bunches often results in a residual chirp left in the beam from the compression stages, which can be detrimental to the FEL performance. The problem is particularly acute in the next generation X-ray FELs which will be using seeding techniques and where the energy spread requirements are more stringent. Its been proposed to mitig ...

  6. Development of Non-Linear Inserts for IOTA Ring at Fermilab

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 33a

    Conventional linear lattice accelerator designs limit the available dynamic aperture because they are unstable to chromatic effects and subject to resonances. By designing a lattice that is non- linear from the initial design, so-called integrable optics, the dynamic aperture can be increased as particles can pass through resonances and are less sensitive to chromatic aberrations in the lattice. ...

  7. A User-Friendly, Modular Simulation Tool for Laser-Electron Beam Interactions

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 15a

    Present day simulation tools for the accelerator community have a narrow focus on specific problems and have unwieldy command-line driven inputs. In addition, to produce relevant results, the output from one program has to be fed into another, increasing the possibility of errors in translation between different formats. The proposed cloud-based, code is built in a modular fashion, to allow varyi ...

  8. Plasma Photocathode Beam Brightness Transformer for Laser-Plasma Accelerators

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 33a

    Hybrid laser-plasma accelerator schemes are emerging as tools capable of producing high-energy electron beams as drivers for advanced light sources. However, drastic improvements in beam quality and shot-to-shot stability are needed to establish these schemes for widespread use. RadiaBeam Technologies, with UCLA and Univ. of Strathclyde, propose to achieve dramatic improvements in beam quality (em ...

  9. Inductively Coupled Pulsed Energy Extraction System for 2G Wire-Based Magnets

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 35b

    Experimental measurement of Normal Zone Propagation (NZP) velocity in HTS 2G wires yields values below 1 mm/s. Such low propagation velocity results in concentrated energy dissipation and irreversible damage of the magnet during an unprotected quench. This project is developing a novel method for quench protection of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets based on coupling the magnet with ...

  10. Theory-Based High-QE Photocathode Development

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 37b

    While substantial advancements have been made in realizing tube based large area detectors such as the Large Area Picosecond Photo-Detector (LAPPD), there is widespread agreement in the cathode community that a higher QE bialkali cathode is possible, and that the present understanding is largely-recipe driven without the adequate control or understanding to achieve the previously observed high yie ...
