Low temperature and neutron physics studies: Final progress report, March 1, 1986--May 31, 1987

Description: A search for a novel coupling interaction between the Pendelloesung periodicity which is formed in a diffracting crystal and the Larmor precession of neutrons in a magnetic field has been carried out. This interaction is expected to exhibit a resonant behavior when the two spatial periodicities become matched upon scanning the magnetic field being applied to the crystal. Observations on a diffracting, perfect crystal of silicon with neutrons of wavelength 1 Angstrom show the expected resonant action but some discrepancy between the observed magnitude of the resonance effects remains for interpretation. 16 refs.

Method of inspecting Raschig rings by neutron absorption counting

Description: A neutron counting method for inspecting borosilicate glass Raschig rings and an apparatus designed specifically for this method are discussed. The neutron count ratios for rings of a given thickness show a linear correlation to the boron oxide content of the rings. The count ratio also has a linear relationship to the thickness of rings of a given boron oxide content. Consequently, the experimentally-determined count ratio and physically-measured thickness of Raschig rings can be used to statistically predict their boron oxide content and determine whether or not they meet quality control acceptance criteria.

Design of a high activity and selectivity alcohol catalyst

Description: As specified in our original DOE grant proposal, the objective of this research is to design a new alumina-supported bimetallic catalyst for the selective hydrogenation of carbon monoxide to produce methanol and higher alcohols. A key feature of our research program is our intention to rationally design this catalyst based upon fundamental information about the structure, composition and reactivity of preliminary catalysts synthesized throughout the course of this work. During our first year, we have put in place many of the tools needed to synthesize and characterize our catalyst samples. Experimentation has focused on both the synthesis of catalysts designed for high oxygenate activity and the suppression of the secondary dehydration of methanol to dimethyl ether on both native gamma-alumina and a bimetallic catalyst supported on gamma-alumina. 2 refs., 1 tab.

Intensified CCD for ultrafast diagnostics

Description: Many of the present laser fusion diagnostics are recorded on either ultrafast streak cameras or on oscilloscopes. For those experiments in which a large volume of data is accumulated, direct computer processing of the information becomes important. We describe an approach which uses a RCA 52501 back-thinned CCD sensor to obtain direct electron readouts for both the streak camera and the CRT. Performance of the 100 GHz streak camera and the 4 GHz CRT are presented. Design parameters and computer interfacing for both systems are described in detail.

Systematic effects in CALOR simulation code to model experimental configurations

Description: CALOR89 code system is being used to simulate test beam results and the design parameters of several calorimeter configurations. It has been bench-marked against the ZEUS, D{theta} and HELIOS data. This study identifies the systematic effects in CALOR simulation to model the experimental configurations. Five major systematic effects are identified. These are the choice of high energy nuclear collision model, material composition, scintillator saturation, shower integration time, and the shower containment. Quantitative estimates of these systematic effects are presented. 23 refs., 6 figs., 7 tabs.

Battery technology - an assessment of the state of the art

Description: A state-of-the-art battery survey and data verification process were conducted with battery manufacturers and organizations involved in battery technology research and development. This report addresses those major battery technologies which were identified as either being developed or explored as potential candidates for major energy storage applications in electric utilities or transportation as well as for future operations with solar or wind energy systems. Near- and far-term battery systems, current data and opinions, and developments in both US and foreign battery technology for utility load leveling and electric vehicles are discussed. Background information and the scope of the report are given first. Then basic data for each battery type are summarized; a general discussion of other potential battery systems is also included. A comparative summary of battery cost and performance is presented; actual battery capabilities are discussed relative to the general requirements of electric utility load leveling and transportation applications. The current status of the scarce materials and environmental and safety problems related to battery technology is presented. The overall status of the current R and D programs and expected progress toward commercialization are discussed; the roles of competing technologies in two major markets for battery technology are addressed. General observations, conclusions, and recommendations are given. 9 figures, 25 tables. (RWR)

Measurements of the emittance and current density profile of the beam produced by the ATA injector

Description: Measurements of the normalized emittance of the beam produced by the Advanced Test Accelerator (ATA) injector yielded values near 0.4 Radian-Centimeters at currents up to 10 kAmps. The instrument was also used to obtain beam-current-density profiles in two dimensions at the entrance mask of the instrument.

Collisional relaxation of low lying electronically excited states of uranium: f/sup 3/ds/sup 2/(/sup 5/K/sub 5//sup 0/) and (/sup 5/L/sub 7//sup 0/)

Description: Laser induced fluorescence techniques were used to measure the rates of electronic relaxation of atomic uranium in a beam-gas scattering apparatus. Cross sections for the collisional deactivation of the U f/sup 3/ds/sup 2/(/sup 5/K/sub 5//sup 0/) and (/sup 5/L/sub 7//sup 0/) states by H/sub 2/, D/sub 2/, HD, CH/sub 4/, N/sub 2/, and CO at room temperature are reported. Upper limits for quenching cross sections with He were also obtained. Relaxation of these uranium metastables by molecular hydrogen (H/sub 2/, D/sub 2/ and HD) and methane appears to proceed by resonant electronic-to-rotational or electronic-to-vibration/rotational energy transfer processes. 12 references.

Experimental studies of a large heterogeneous LMFBR benchmark core, ZPPR-13A

Description: The ZPPR-13 program provides basic physics information for testing calculations of radially heterogeneous cores of about 700 MWe size. ZPPR-13 is part of the JUPITER cooperative program between Japan and the US. The results are presented of measurements and analysis for the first assembly, ZPPR-13A. These are the first data for heterogeneous cores of this size available in the US and complement results from ZPPR-9, a conventional LMFBR of similar size.
