Abstract
THIS WORK REPRESENTS AN EFFORT TO ESTABLISH A MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION FACILITY AT SYNCHROTRON RADIATION SOURCE WHICH CAN BE UTILIZED ON A FEE-FOR-SERVICE, PAY-AS-YOU GO BASIS BY INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND PRODUCTION ORGANIZATIONS. THE ULTIMATE OUTCOME OF THE PROGRAM IS THE EXISTENCE OF A BEAMLINE FACILITY DEDICATED TO BOTH ANALYTICAL SERVICE AND CONTRACT RESEARCH. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE TO IDENTIFY THE MATERIALS AND THE ANALYTICAL PROBLEM THAT CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH A SYNCHROTRON RADIATION TECHNIQUE. THIS TECHNIQUE WILL BE THE BASIS FOR THE BEAMLINE CAPABILITIES. EXPERIMENTS WILL BE PERFORMED ON THE MATERIALS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT ROUTINE RESULTS CAN BE OBTAINED. THE POTENTIAL FOR SCALE-UP WILL BE ADDRESSED, WITH THE GOAL OF SHOWING THAT THE MEASUREMENTS CAN BE DONE ROUTINELY AT AN EXISTING SYNCHROTRON RADIATION SOURCE. A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR A PROTOTYPE BEAMLINE WHICH IS OPTIMIZED FOR ROUTINE ANALYTICAL MEASUREMENTS WILL BE DEVELOPED.
