  1. A NOVEL LEAK DETECTOR FOR XENON

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE DESCRIBE A NOVEL LEAK DETECTOR FOR XENON THAT HAS DIRECT APPLICATION TO TESTING RADIO-ISOTOPE-POWERED THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS. SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRATION OF OUR INNOVATION WILL ALLOW IMPROVED EFFICIENCY IN THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS BY REMOVING THE HELIUM THAT IS NOW ADDED TO THE XENON BUFFERGAS FOR LEAK CHECKING PURPOSES. THE PHASE I RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE THE CRITICAL DESIGN INFORMATION ...

  3. PHOTOCONDUCTIVE SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCH FLASHOVER SUPPRESSION

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    PHOTOCONDUCTIVE SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCHES (PCSSS) PRESENTLY HAVE THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS FOR HIGH POWER PULSED APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, SURFACE FLASHOVER SEVERELY LIMITS THE MAXIMUM VOLTAGE THEY CAN STAND OFF IN THE OPEN STATE. APPLICATION OF A PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE TO PCSS CAN OVERCOME THIS LIMITATION. THE TECHNIQUE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO INCREASE BREAKDOWN LASER TRI ...

  4. LASER CONTROLLED HIGH POWER SEMICONDUCTOR OPENING SWITCH TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE CONCEPT FOR A BULK OPTICALLY-CONTROLLED SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCH (BOSS), WHERE TWO DIFFERENT WAVELENGTH LASERS ARE USED TO GENERATE AND QUENCH PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY WAS RECENTLY INTRODUCED BY SCHOENBACH AND LAKDAWALA AT OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY (ODU). INSTEAD OF SUSTAINING PHOTOCONDUCTANCE BYLASER LIGHT, AS IN CONVENTIONAL PHOTOCONDUCTIVE SWITCHES, ONE LASER IS USED TO DRIVE THE SWITCH INTO A CONDUCTIV ...

  5. A NEW, OFF-PEAK ELECTRIC THERMAL STORAGE APPLIANCE FOR COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL USE.

    SBC: Thermal Electric Devices Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS COUNTRY IS FACING AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN PROVIDING ELECTRIC ENERGY IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. THIS PROBLEM IS COMPOUNDED, ON THE ONE HAND, BY THE VERY HIGH COST OF NUCLEAR POWER, THE EXTREMELY LONG APPROVAL AND CONSTRUCTION TIMES, AND THE SHUTTING DOWN OF SEVERAL PLANTS EVEN BEFORE START UP BECAUSE OF THE CONCERNS OF LOCAL CITIZENS. ON THE OTHER HAND, CONVENTIONA ...

  6. AN ULTRA FAST SCINTILLATOR FOR WELL LOGGING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THEIR LONG DECAY TIMES, SCINTILLATORS IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS ARE RESPONSIVE PRIMARILY TO THE GAMMA RADIATION FROM THE NEUTRON CAPTURE SPECTUM. THIS INHIBITS POROSITY MEASUREMENTS IN GAS-FILLED ZONES AND SUBSTANTIALLY LIMITS THE ELEMENTAL INFORMATION ON THE STRATA WHICH CAN BE ACQUIRED. ADVANCES IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS REQUIRE A NEW SCINTILLATOR MATERIAL CAPABLE OF MAKING PRECISION ME ...
