Physics of mirror reactors and devices

Description: BS>From surface effects in controlled thermonuclear fusion devices and reactors Meeting; Argonne, Illinois, USA (10 Jan 1974). The physics of plasma confinement using the magnetic mirror principle is discussed, and the unique features of the mirror reactor approach to fusion are discussed and compared to the toroidal confinement approach.

Surface requirements for electrostatic direct energy converters

Description: From surface effects in controlled thermonuclear fusion devices and reactors meeting; Argonne, Illinois, USA (10 Jan 1974). There are two major electrostatic direct energy converter concepts whlch will be discussed from the point of view of the surfaces. One is the Venetian blind concept and the other is the periodic electrostatic focusing concept. They are both of the direct collector type. Fluxes of D/sup +/, T/sup +/, He/sup ++/, electrons, and x-rays are given. Design consideration due to thermionic emission, secondary electron emission, and radiation cooling are discussed. A detailed discussion is devoted to breakdown physics, the voltages and electric field strengths that can be employed, and how surface deterioration may affect voltage holding due to He/sup ++/ bombardment blistering.

Analysis of high-density areas in beryllium hemishells

Description: Small areas of high and low radiographic density in hot-pressed beryllium were studied by macroetching and optical and electron microscopy. The areas were either semispherical or wormlike in shape and were found to be agglomerates of grains markedly coarser or finer than the matrix. (auth)
