Free-free gaunt factors for gold plasmas at laser-fusion conditions

Description: Detailed calculations were made of the free-free absorption process for electrons traveling in the region of the temperature-dependent Thomas-Fermi potential of various gold plasmas. The Born approximations folded into this potential give a poor representation of the cross section.

The Near-Death Experience as a Shamanic Initiation: A Case Study

Description: Abstract: The field of near-death studies shares a number of interesting, often compelling, similarities with the ancient spiritual tradition known as shamanism. Not least among these similarities is the fact that a near-death experience (NDE) is a time-honored form of shamanic initiation. I present a case example illustrating how a deep NDE can propel a person who had no prior knowledge or interest in shamanism into spontaneous, often classic, shamanic experiences, while living an apparently normal life in the midst of modern Western society.

Near-Death Experiences, Shamanism, and the Scientific Method

Description: Article discussing the overlap between shamanism and near-death experiences (NDEs) and suggesting that the study of shamanism would be helpful in more fully understanding this phenomena and beginning the development of an applied methodology. Although it may be difficult to verify subjective accounts of NDEs and shamanic journeys, from a clinical standpoint it may not be necessary to do so in order to develop a technique that passes the test of scientific scrutiny.

The Death Journey of a Hopi Indian: A Case Study

Description: Article presenting the case study of the "death journey" or near-death experience (NDE) of Don Talayesva, a Hopi Indian, whose experience occurred between 1900 and 1910. The article compares and contrasts his experience with 11 accounts of Native American NDEs reported by Jenny Wade, as well as with modern day NDEs.

Use of soft probabilities in evaluating physical-security systems

Description: The complexity of evaluating how a physical security system would perform against a broad array of threat situations dictates the use by an inspector of methods which are not completely rigorous. Intuition and judgment based on experience have a large role to play. The use of soft probabilities can give meaningful results when the nature of the situation to which they are applied is sufficiently understood. Although the scoring method proposed is based on complex theory, it is feasible to apply on an intuitive basis. 6 figures.

Analysis of impact of noncompliance with physical-security requirements at nuclear facilities

Description: Inspectors are required to analyze the impact of instances of noncompliance with physical security requirements at licensed nuclear facilities. A scoring procedure for components and a method for evaluating the effectiveness of the subsystems involved are proposed to reinforce an inspector's judgment about the remaining level of safeguards.

Lucid Dreams as One Method of Replicating Components of the Near-Death Experience in a Laboratory Setting

Description: Article exploring a large phenomenological overlap among lucid dreams, out-of-body experiences, and near-death experiences, which suggests the possibility of developing a methodology of replicating components of the near-death experience using newly developed methods of inducing lucid dreams.

BREM II: a code for calculating the free--free Gaunt factor in an arbitrary atomic potential

Description: Free-free absorption is one of the dominant mechanisms governing the absorption of laser radiation by materials heated to temperatures of 0.5 to 2.0 eV. This report describes the theory, the listing, and the running instructions for a code which computes the free-- free Gaunt factor, arising from any given ionic or atomic potential. The calculation makes use of partial wave expansion. The code is capable of computing up to 95 partial waves. The code computes the necessary low energy wave functions by making use of the Green's function solution rather than by directly integrating Schroedinger's equation. In addition to the Gaunt factor, the code also provides the amplitude and the phase shift of every partial wave considered. (auth)

Near-Death Experiences in a Southern California Population

Description: This paper discusses "41 persons who were near death or clinically dead as the result of an accident, illness, or suicide attempt are presented. Respondents reported a total of 50 near-death experiences (NDEs) of which 33 were rated (using K. Ring's Weighted Core Experience Index) as having been deep, 10 as moderate, and 7 as non-experiences" (abstract).

Preliminary Testing of a Proportional Counter for Neutron Spectroscopy With Helium-3

Description: The He/sup 3/(n,p)T reaction can be utilized in a proportional counter for neutron-energy determination in the region 100 kev to 1 Mev. This has already been demonstrated and the reaction cross section in this energy region has been measured with a counter. For practical application of the counter as a spectrometer, such as in health physics work, it is desirable to increase the counter efficiency. A proportional counter utilizing an anticoincidence ring to reduce wall effect has been constructed for this purpose. Some preliminary tests of the proposed system are described. (auth)

Radcalc for Windows. Volume 2: Technical manual

Description: Radcalc for Windows is a user-friendly menu-driven Windows-compatible software program with applications in the transportation of radioactive materials. It calculates the radiolytic generation of hydrogen gas in the matrix of low-level and high-level radioactive waste using NRC-accepted methodology. It computes the quantity of a radionuclide and its associated products for a given period of time. In addition, the code categorizes shipment quantities as radioactive, Type A or Type B, limited quantity, low specific activity, highway route controlled, and fissile excepted using DOT definitions and methodologies, as outlined in 49 CFR Subchapter C. The code has undergone extensive testing and validation. Volume I is a User`s Guide, and Volume II is the Technical Manual for Radcalc for Windows

Radiological transportation risk assessment of the shipment of sodium-bonded fuel from the Fast Flux Test Facility to the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory

Description: This document was written in support of Environmental Assessment: Shutdown of the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF), Hanford Site, Richland, Washington. It analyzes the potential radiological risks associated with the transportation of sodium-bonded metal alloy and mixed carbide fuel from the FFTF on the Hanford Site in Washington State to the Idaho Engineering Laboratory in Idaho in the T-3 Cask. RADTRAN 4 is used for the analysis which addresses potential risk from normal transportation and hypothetical accident scenarios.

Small Wind Turbine Applications: Current Practice in Colorado

Description: Numerous small wind turbines are being used by homeowners in Colorado. Some of these installations are quite recent while others date back to the federal tax-credit era of the early 1980s. Through visits with small wind turbine owners in Colorado, I have developed case studies of six small wind energy applications focusing on the wind turbine technology, wind turbine siting, the power systems and electric loads, regulatory issues, and motivations about wind energy. These case studies offer a glimpse into the current state-of-the-art of small-scale wind energy and provide some insight into issues affecting development of a wider market.
