High power ultrashort pulse lasers

Description: Small scale terawatt and soon even petawatt (1000 terawatt) class laser systems are made possible by application of the chirped-pulse amplification technique to solid-state lasers combined with the availability of broad bandwidth materials. These lasers make possible a new class of high gradient accelerators based on the large electric fields associated with intense laser-plasma interactions or from the intense laser field directly. Here, we concentrate on the laser technology to produce these intense pulses. Application of the smallest of these systems to the production of high brightness electron sources is also introduced.

Integrated assessment and the relation between land-use change and climate change

Description: Integrated assessment is an approach that is useful in evaluating the consequences of global climate change. Understanding the consequences requires knowledge of the relationship between land-use change and climate change. Methodologies for assessing the contribution of land-use change to atmospheric CO{sub 2} concentrations are considered with reference to a particular case study area: south and southeast Asia. The use of models to evaluate the consequences of climate change on forests must also consider an assessment approach. Each of these points is discussed in the following four sections.

Use of experience data for seismic evaluations at Department of Energy facilities

Description: Seismic evaluations of essential systems and components at Department of Energy (DOE) facilities will be conducted over the next several years. For many of these systems and components, few, if any, seismic requirements applied to the original design, procurement, installation, and maintenance process. Thus the verification of the seismic adequacy of existing systems and components presents a difficult challenge. DOE has undertaken development of the criteria and procedures for these seismic evaluations that will maximize safety benefits in a timely and cost effective manner. As demonstrated in previous applications at DOE facilities and by the experience from the commercial nuclear power industry, use of experience data for these evaluations is the only viable option for most existing systems and components. This paper describes seismic experience data, the needs at DOE facilities, the precedent of application of nuclear power plants and DOE facilities, and the program underway for the seismic verification task ahead for DOE.

Resolution measurement of an Interpolating Pad Chamber in the 9 GeV/c {pi}{sup {minus}} beam at BNL

Description: Results axe presented from the first test of a full size barrel prototype Interpolating Pad Chamber for the GEM central tracker in the 9 GeV/c {pi}{sup {minus}} beam at the Brookhaven AGS. An average resolution of 45 {mu}m has been achieved using electronics functionally identical to the final GEM design. Two 50 mRad stereo pad layers combine to give 680 {mu}m resolution in the direction along the chamber. A calibration procedure which uses the data to measure the gains and pedestals for each pad has been developed and is presented together with resolution results from the silicon telescope used to project the tracks into the pad chambers.

DOE Integrated Safeguards and Security (DISS) historical document archival and retrieval analysis, requirements and recommendations

Description: The overall primary Objective of HDAR is to create a repository of historical personnel security documents and provide the functionality needed for archival and retrieval use by other software modules and application users of the DISS/ET system. The software product to be produced from this specification is the Historical Document Archival and Retrieval Subsystem The product will provide the functionality to capture, retrieve and manage documents currently contained in the personnel security folders in DOE Operations Offices vaults at various locations across the United States. The long-term plan for DISS/ET includes the requirement to allow for capture and storage of arbitrary, currently undefined, clearance-related documents that fall outside the scope of the ``cradle-to-grave`` electronic processing provided by DISS/ET. However, this requirement is not within the scope of the requirements specified in this document.

A review of incentives, strategies and model technologies for recycling photovoltaic modules

Description: This paper identifies existing recycling programs for consumer products with similar composition to photovoltaic (PV) modules, including cathode-ray tubes, electronic circuit boards, batteries, and automobile windshield glass. Discussed are incentives, the selection of technologies, and strategies used to recycle these products. Since the technologies for recycling these products exist, developing a process, or series of processes, for PV modules should primarily be a matter of customization. Developing an entire recycling program that is economically feasible will provide a greater challenge. Achieving this will require careful analysis of incentives, use of various combinations of strategies, and inclusion of multiple industries for additional technical processes. This can contribute to the success of a program by dividing the costs and ensuring that secondary products and materials enter into a diverse amount of markets.

Linear and circular dichroism in angle resolved Fe 3p photomission. Revision 1

Description: Using a recently developed spin-polarized, fully relativistic, multiple scattering approach based on the layer KKR Green function method, we have reproduced the Fe 3p angle-resolved soft x-ray photoemission spectra and analyzed the associated large magnetic dichroism effects for excitation with both linearly and circularly polarized light. Comparison between theory and experiment yields a spin-orbit splitting of 1.0--1.2 eV and an exchange splitting of 0.9-- 1.0 eV for Fe 3p. These values are 50--100% larger than those hitherto obtained experimentally.

[Letter from Thomas A. Hatfield to Harriet Laney, July 7, 1994]

Description: Photocopy of a letter from Thomas A. Hatfield, Executive Director for The National Art Education Association, to Harriet Laney, NTIEVA, in regards to receiving NTIEVA newsletters and the interdisciplinary art section. Hatfield commends Laney on the content provided, and that many interdisciplinary art teachers and their programs don't focus on the student aspect of art learning and art content. Hatfield ends the letter by saying how important it is to keep the focus of the substance in the newsletters.
