Organizing for nuclear power facility development. Final draft report

Description: Centralized power development concepts have been of interest for some years and have been given considerable study in the past, e.g., the Congressionally-directed 1975 NRC studies. In general, while all such studies have concluded that such Centers did offer potential benefits and were feasible, in the mid-1970's, when most of these studies were done, the advantages did not appear to make use of Energy Centers on balance, preferable to continued conventional or dispersed siting. The DOE recogni… more

Prioritization to limit sampling and drilling in site investigations

Description: One of the major goals of the Environmental Research Division of Argonne National Laboratory is to develop and provide governmental agencies with technically sound, cost-effective frameworks for environmental site characterization and remedial programs. An example of the development of such a framework for preremedial site characterization is presented in this paper. Specifically, this paper presents portions of an expanded site investigation program developed for landfills suspected of contain… more

Health and research organization to meet complex needs of developing energy technologies

Description: At the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, a unique safety technology organization has been established that is especially geared to respond to interdisciplinary health and safety questions in response to rapidly growing energy technology problems. This concept can be adopted by smaller organizations at a more modest cost, and still maintains the efficiency, flexibility, and technical rigor that are needed more and more in support of any industry health and safety problem. The separation of the tech… more

Nanocrystal Bioassembly: Asymmetry, Proximity, and Enzymatic Manipulation

Description: Research at the interface between biomolecules and inorganic nanocrystals has resulted in a great number of new discoveries. In part this arises from the synergistic duality of the system: biomolecules may act as self-assembly agents for organizing inorganic nanocrystals into functional materials; alternatively, nanocrystals may act as microscopic or spectroscopic labels for elucidating the behavior of complex biomolecular systems. However, success in either of these functions relies heavily up… more

BEAM-SURROUNDING INTERACTIONS AND THE STABILITY OF RELATIVISTIC PARTICLE BEAMS

Description: In accord with recent custom, the organizing committee for this conference has scheduled this review paper on beam instabilities. In view of the various review papers which already exist and the fact that the fundamentals of the subject have even been treated in a textbook, I thought this paper might best be devoted to a limited part of the rather large field of beam instabilities. Thus, I have selected only an aspect of the general subject, but an aspect which has during the last years been ve… more

Automated analysis for detecting beams in laser wakefield simulations

Description: Laser wakefield particle accelerators have shown the potential to generate electric fields thousands of times higher than those of conventional accelerators. The resulting extremely short particle acceleration distance could yield a potential new compact source of energetic electrons and radiation, with wide applications from medicine to physics. Physicists investigate laser-plasma internal dynamics by running particle-in-cell simulations; however, this generates a large dataset that requires t… more

Rap1 integrates tissue polarity, lumen formation, and tumorigenicpotential in human breast epithelial cells

Description: Maintenance of apico-basal polarity in normal breast epithelial acini requires a balance between cell proliferation, cell death, and proper cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix signaling. Aberrations in any of these processes can disrupt tissue architecture and initiate tumor formation. Here we show that the small GTPase Rap1 is a crucial element in organizing acinar structure and inducing lumen formation. Rap1 activity in malignant HMT-3522 T4-2 cells is appreciably higher than in S1 cells,… more
