Current progress in NIF target concepts

Description: Target concepts for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) require progress in the art and science of target fabrication. Three distinct issues are addressed: beryllium fuel capsules, foam-buffered direct drive, and high-density gas-filled hohlraums. In all cases experiments on the existing Nova laser at LLNL are either in progress or planned for the near future to test the various concepts. Consequently, target fabrication must be able to deliver targets appropriate for each.

Update on the National Center for Gear Metrology

Description: Traceability to national or international standards is clearly required by commercial sector standards including ISO 9001:1994 (Ref. 1), ISO/IEC Guide 25 (Ref. 2), and the US equivalent of ISO/IEC Guide 25-ANSI/NCSL Z540-2-1997 (Ref. 3). In the draft replacement to ISO/IEC Guide 25-ISO 17025; measurements, not just equipment, must be traceable to SI units or reference to a natural constant. The implications of traceability to the US gear industry are significant. In order to meet the standards, either gear manufacturers must have calibrated artifacts or must establish their own traceability to SI units.

A Study of the Conservatism of Resonant Shock Test Fixtures

Description: Portions of a series of end-of-life tests are described for a Sandia National Li~boratories- designed space-based sensor that utilizes a mercury-cadmium-telluride focal plane array. Variations in background intensity are consistent with the hypothesis that seasonal variations in solar position cause changes in the pattern of shadows falling across the compartment containing the optical elements, filter-band components, and focal plane array. When the sensor compartment is most fully illuminated by the sun, background intensities are large and their standard deviations tend to be large. During the winter season, when the compartment is most fully shadowed by surrounding structure, backgrounci intensities are small and standard deviations tend to be small. Details in the surrounding structure are speculated to produce transient shadows that complicate background intensifies as a function of time or of sensor position in orbit. KEYwoRDs Noise measurements, background intensity, focal plane array, mercury-cadmium-telluride.

Scoping the parameter space for demo and the engineering test facility (ETF)

Description: In our IFE development plan, we have set a goal of building an Engineering Test Facility (ETF) for a total cost of $2B and a Demo for $3B. In Mike Campbell� s presentation at Madison, we included a viewgraph with an example Demo that had 80 to � 250 MWe of net power and showed a plausible argument that it could cost less than $3B. In this memo, I examine the design space for the Demo and then briefly for the ETF. Instead of attempting to estimate the costs of the drivers, I pose the question in a way to define R&D goals: As a function of key design and performance parameters, how much can the driver cost if the total facility cost is limited to the specified goal? The design parameters examined for the Demo included target gain, driver energy, driver efficiency, and net power output. For the ETF; the design parameters are target gain, driver energy, and target yield. The resulting graphs of allowable driver cost determine the goals that the driver R&D programs must seek to meet.

Work plan addendum for the remedial investigation and feasibility study of the Salmon Site

Description: This document is intended as an addendum to the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) Work Plan for the Salmon Site (SS) (formerly the Tatum Dome Test Site) Lamar County, Mississippi. The original work plan - Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study of the Tatum Dome Test Site, Lamar County, Mississippi (herein after called the Work Plan) was approved by the state of Mississippi in 1992 and was intended as the operative document for investigative activities at the Tatum Dome Test Site. Subsequent to the approval of the document a series of activities were undertaken under the auspices of the work plan. This document is organized in the same manner as the original work plan: (1) Introduction; (2) Site Background and History; (3) Initial Evaluation; (4) Data Quality Objectives; (5) RI/FS Tasks; (6) Project Schedule; (7) Project Management; and (8) Reference. This addendum will identify changes to the original work plan that are necessary because of additional information acquired at the SS. This document is not intended to replace the work plan, rather, it is intended to focus the remaining work in the context of additional site knowledge gained since the development of the original work plan. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is conducting a focused and phased site characterization as a part, of the RI/FS. The RI/FS is the methodology under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) for evaluating hazardous waste sites on the National Priorities List (NPL). The SS is not listed on the NPL, but DOE has voluntarily elected to conduct the evaluation of the SS in accordance with CERCLA.

A damped detuned structure for the next linear collider

Description: An X-band Damped Detuned Structure (DDS) for NLC has been fabricated as part of a collaboration between KEK and SLAC. The individual cells were diamond point machined and microwave tested at KEK. The cells were diffusion bonded at SLAC. The structure has been cold tested. The time dependence of the beam induced dipole wakefields have been measured with the SLC beam in the test station ASSET. The structure is designed so that the dipole modes have an approximately gaussian density distribution in the frequency domain. This gives an approximately gaussian decrease of the wakefields for short times (about 10 ns), which is produced by the interference among the 206 modes in the lowest dipole mode band of the 206 cell structure. Without damping, however, the wakefields then rise back to a level which is approximately equal to the expected incoherent level from the 206 modes. The damping is accomplished by means of 4 rectangular slots or manifolds (approximately 5 mm by 10 mm) equally spaced in azimuth around the structure and running the full length of the structure. These manifolds act as single mode rectangular waveguides for the lowest band dipole modes, but are cut off for the accelerating mode. The manifolds are coupled to every cell in the structure, except for 3 at each end, by means of radial slots. Each of the four manifolds will have the dipole mode frequencies traveling in both directions and so are terminated on both ends. The structure will be installed in the NLC Test Accelerator this fall.

Utility of the National Ignition Facility for inertial fusion energy and radiation sciences experiments

Description: NIF is being configured so as to not preclude conduct of radiation experiments that will contribute to evaluating the readiness of military systems and components to withstand radiation environments. The range of possible experimental environments and the flexibility to introduce various types of experimental packages suggests synergism with experiments related to Inertial Fusion Energy development on NIF. Design status of NIF features to support radiation experiments is described, and a relationship to their applicability to IFE experimentation on NIF is discussed.

Results and conclusions test capabilities task group summary report

Description: This annotated briefing documents an economic analysis of Sandia`s system-level test facilities maintained and operated by the Design, Evaluation, and Test Technology Center 9700. The study was divided into four primary sub-tasks: (1) Estimation of the future system-level test workload, (2) Development of a consistent economic model to estimate the cost of maintaining and operating the test facilities, (3) Determination of the availability of viable alternative test sites, and (4) Assessment of the potential savings through reduction of excess capacity under various facility-closure scenarios. The analysis indicated that potential savings from closing all facilities could approach $6 million per year. However, large uncertainties in these savings remove any sound economic arguments for such closure: it is possible that testing at alternative sites could cost more than maintaining the current set of system-level test facilities. Finally, a number of programmatic risks incurred by facility closure were identified. Consideration of facility closure requires a careful weighing of any projected economic benefit against these programmatic risks. This summary report covers the briefing given to upper management. A more detailed discussion of the data and analyses is given in the full report, available for internal use from the technical library.
