Development of BEACON technology. Quarterly report, April-June 1982

Description: The BEACON process involves the catalytic deposition of a highly reactive form of carbon from a gas stream which contains carbon monoxide. The carbon-depleted gas is combusted with air to produce power, and the carbon is reacted with steam to produce methane or hydrogen. Experiments were continued this quarter with the objective of improving the carbon deposition efficiency using a Paraho retort off-gas mixture. Analysis has shown that the use of the Paraho off-gas to make hydrogen would be att… more

Engineering considerations of the advanced free electron laser facility

Description: The Advanced Free-Electron Laser (AFEL) is being built at Los Alamos inside a large laboratory building. In addition to cost and available space considerations, several engineering issues affected the design of the AFEL and its facility. The 1300-MHz, 20-MeV electron linac required extensive radiation shielding and a short rf-waveguide run. Free-Electron Lasers (FEL) and photocathode-drive laser optics required a clean, constant temperature environment. New environmental, health, and safety (ES… more

D. phi. vertex drift chamber construction and test results

Description: A jet-cell based vertex chamber has been built for the D{O} experiment at Fermilab and operated in a test beam there. Low drift velocity and diffusion properties were achieved using CO{sub 2}(95%)-ethane(5%) at atmospheric pressure. The drift velocity is found to be consistent with (9.74+8.68( E -1.25)) {mu}m/nsec where E is the electric field strength in (kV/cm < E z 1.6 kV/cm.) An intrinsic spatial resolution of 60 {mu}m or better for drift distances greater than 2 mm is measured. The track p… more
