Geodesic deviation and gravitational waves  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The detection of gravitational waves based on the geodesic deviation equation is discussed. In particular, it is shown that the only non-vanishing components of the wave field in the conventional traceless-transverse gauge in linearized general relativity do not enter the geodesic deviation equation, and therefore, apparently, no effect is predicted by that equation in that specific gauge. The reason is traced back to the fact that the geodesic deviation equation is written in terms of a coordinate distance, which is not a directly measurable quantity. On the other hand, in the proper Lorentz frame of the detector, the conventional result described in standard textbooks holds.

Nonequilibrium Markov processes conditioned on large deviations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider the problem of conditioning a Markov process on a rare event and of representing this conditioned process by a conditioning-free process, called the effective or driven process. The basic assumption is that the rare event used in the conditioning is a large deviation-type event, characterized by a convex rate function. Under this assumption, we construct the driven process via a generalization of Doob's $h$-transform, used in the context of bridge processes, and show that this process is equivalent to the conditioned process in the long-time limit. The notion of equivalence that we consider is based on the logarithmic equivalence of path measures and implies that the two processes have the same typical states. In constructing the driven process, we also prove equivalence with the so-called exponential tilting of the Markov process, which is used with importance sampling to simulate rare events, and which gives rise, from the point of view of statistical mechanics, to a nonequilibrium version of the canonical ensemble. Other links between our results and the topics of bridge processes, quasi-stationary distributions, stochastic control, and conditional limit theorems are mentioned.

Geodesic deviation at higher orders via covariant bitensors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We review a simple but instructive application of the formalism of covariant bitensors, to use a deviation vector field along a fiducial geodesic to describe a neighboring worldline, in an exact and manifestly covariant manner, via the exponential map. Requiring the neighboring worldline to be a geodesic leads to the usual linear geodesic deviation equation for the deviation vector, plus corrections at higher order in the deviation and relative velocity. We show how these corrections can be efficiently computed to arbitrary orders via covariant bitensor expansions, deriving a form of the geodesic deviation equation valid to all orders, and producing its explicit expanded form through fourth order. We also discuss the generalized Jacobi equation, action principles for the higher-order geodesic deviation equations, results useful for describing accelerated neighboring worldlines, and the formal general solution to the geodesic deviation equation through second order.

Large Deviations Principle for Stochastic Scalar Conservation Laws  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We investigate large deviations for a family of conservative stochastic PDEs (conservation laws) in the asymptotic of jointly vanishing noise and viscosity. We obtain a first large deviations principle in a space of Young measures. The associated rate functional vanishes on a wide set, the so-called set of measure-valued solutions to the limiting conservation law. We therefore investigate a second order large deviations principle, thus providing a quantitative characterization of non-entropic solutions to the conservation law.

Are Scalar and Tensor Deviations Related in Modified Gravity?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Modified gravity theories on cosmic scales have three key deviations from general relativity. They can cause cosmic acceleration without a physical, highly negative pressure fluid, can cause a gravitational slip between the two metric potentials, and can cause gravitational waves to propagate differently, e.g. with a speed different from the speed of light. We examine whether the deviations in the metric potentials as observable through modified Poisson equations for scalar density perturbations are related to or independent from deviations in the tensor gravitational waves. We show analytically they are independent instantaneously in covariant Galileon gravity -- e.g. at some time one of them can have the general relativity value while the other deviates -- though related globally -- if one deviates over a finite period, the other at some point shows a deviation. We present expressions for the early time and late time de Sitter limits, and numerically illustrate their full evolution. This in(ter)dependence of the scalar and tensor deviations highlights complementarity between cosmic structure surveys and future gravitational wave measurements.

Spin-geodesic deviations in the Schwarzschild spacetime  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The deviation of the path of a spinning particle from a circular geodesic in the Schwarzschild spacetime is studied by an extension of the idea of geodesic deviation. Within the Mathisson-Papapetrou-Dixon model and assuming the spin parameter to be sufficiently small so that it makes sense to linearize the equations of motion in the spin variables as well as in the geodesic deviation, the spin-curvature force adds an additional driving term to the second order system of linear ordinary differential equations satisfied by nearby geodesics. Choosing initial conditions for geodesic motion leads to solutions for which the deviations are entirely due to the spin-curvature force, and one finds that the spinning particle position for a given fixed total spin oscillates roughly within an ellipse in the plane perpendicular to the motion, while the azimuthal motion undergoes similar oscillations plus an additional secular drift which varies with spin orientation.

Spin-geodesic deviations in the Kerr spacetime  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The dynamics of extended spinning bodies in the Kerr spacetime is investigated in the pole-dipole particle approximation and under the assumption that the spin-curvature force only slightly deviates the particle from a geodesic path. The spin parameter is thus assumed to be very small and the back reaction on the spacetime geometry neglected. This approach naturally leads to solve the Mathisson-Papapetrou-Dixon equations linearized in the spin variables as well as in the deviation vector, with the same initial conditions as for geodesic motion. General deviations from generic geodesic motion are studied, generalizing previous results limited to the very special case of an equatorial circular geodesic as the reference path.

Scaling Deviations for Neutrino Reactions in Aysmptotically Free Field Theories  

DOE R&D Accomplishments (OSTI)

Several aspects of deep inelastic neutrino scattering are discussed in the framework of asymptotically free field theories. We first consider the growth behavior of the total cross sections at large energies. Because of the deviations from strict scaling which are characteristic of such theories the growth need not be linear. However, upper and lower bounds are established which rather closely bracket a linear growth. We next consider in more detail the expected pattern of scaling deviation for the structure functions and, correspondingly, for the differential cross sections. The analysis here is based on certain speculative assumptions. The focus is on qualitative effects of scaling breakdown as they may show up in the X and y distributions. The last section of the paper deals with deviations from the Callan-Gross relation.

Simulations of the spatial and temporal invariance in the spectra of gradual solar energetic particle events  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The spatial and temporal invariance in the spectra of energetic particles in the gradual solar events is reproduced in the simulations. Based on a numerical solution of the focused transport equation, we obtain the intensity time profiles of solar energetic particles (SEPs) accelerated by an interplanetary shock in the three-dimensional interplanetary space. The shock is treated as a moving source of energetic particles with a distribution function. The time profiles of particle flux with different energies are calculated in the ecliptic at $1$ AU. We find that the spatial and temporal invariance in SEP spectra are the results of the effects of perpendicular diffusion and adiabatic cooling in the interplanetary space in our model. Furthermore, a spectra invariant region, which agrees with observations but is different than the one suggested by Reames and co-workers, is proposed based on our simulations.

Here we discuss some issues concerning the statistical properties of ocean surface waves. We show that, using the approach of weak turbulence theory, deviations from Gaussian statistics can be naturally included. In particular we discuss the role of bound and free modes for the determination of the statistical properties of the surface elevation. General formulas for skewness and kurtosis as a function of the spectral wave action density are here derived.

Large deviations of the current in stochastic collisional dynamics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider a class of deterministic local collisional dynamics, showing how to approximate them by means of stochastic models and then studying the fluctuations of the current of energy. We show first that the variance of the time-integrated current is finite and related to the conductivity by the Green-Kubo relation. Next we show that the law of the empirical average current satisfies a large deviations principle and compute explicitly the rate functional in a suitable scaling limit. We observe that this functional is not strictly convex.

Low-energy magnetic radiation: deviations from GOE  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A pronounced spike at low energy in the strength function for magnetic radiation (LEMAR) is found by means of Shell Model calculations, which explains the experimentally observed enhancement of the dipole strength. LEMAR originates from statistical low-energy M1-transitions between many excited complex states. Re-coupling of the proton and neutron high-j orbitals generates the strong magnetic radiation. LEMAR is closely related to Magnetic Rotation. LEMAR is predicted for nuclides participating in the r-process of element synthesis and is expected to change the reaction rates. An exponential decrease of the strength function and a power law for the size distribution of the $B(M1)$ values are found, which strongly deviate from the ones of the GOE of random matrices, which is commonly used to represent complex compound states.

Large-deviation properties of resilience of power grids  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the distributions of the resilience of power flow models against transmission line failures via a so-called backup capacity. We consider three ensembles of random networks and in addition, the topology of the British transmission power grid. The three ensembles are Erd\\H{o}s-R\\'enyi random graphs, Erd\\H{o}s-R\\'enyi random graphs with a fixed number of links, and spatial networks where the nodes are embedded in a two dimensional plane. We investigate numerically the probability density functions (pdfs) down to the tails to gain insight in very resilient and very vulnerable networks. This is achieved via large-deviation techniques which allow us to study very rare values which occur with probability densities below $10^{-160}$. We find that the right tail of the pdfs towards larger backup capacities follows an exponential with a strong curvature. This is confirmed by the rate function which approaches a limiting curve for increasing network sizes. Very resilient networks are basically characterized by ...

We investigate the optimal estimation of quantum expectation value of a physical observable, which minimizes a mean error with respect to general measure of deviation, when a finite number of copies of a pure state are prepared. If pure sates are uniformly distributed, the minimum value of mean error for any measure of deviation is achieved by projective measurement on each copy.

Linear maps preserving maximal deviation and the Jordan structure of quantum systems  

SciTech Connect

In the algebraic approach to quantum theory, a quantum observable is given by an element of a Jordan algebra and a state of the system is modelled by a normalized positive functional on the underlying algebra. Maximal deviation of a quantum observable is the largest statistical deviation one can obtain in a particular state of the system. The main result of the paper shows that each linear bijective transformation between JBW algebras preserving maximal deviations is formed by a Jordan isomorphism or a minus Jordan isomorphism perturbed by a linear functional multiple of an identity. It shows that only one numerical statistical characteristic has the power to determine the Jordan algebraic structure completely. As a consequence, we obtain that only very special maps can preserve the diameter of the spectra of elements. Nonlinear maps preserving the pseudometric given by maximal deviation are also described. The results generalize hitherto known theorems on preservers of maximal deviation in the case of self-adjoint parts of von Neumann algebras proved by Molnar.

Pitch deviation measurement of an involute spur gear by a rotary profiling system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents surface-profiling based gear pitch deviation measurement for an involute spur gear. A rotary profiling system, which consists of an air-bearing spindle and a displacement sensor with a diamond stylus, is employed to measure gear pitch deviation. In measurement of gear pitch deviation, an eccentric error between a gear axis and a motion axis of the rotary stage in the profiling system would affect accuracy of gear profile measurement. In this paper, at first, the influence of the eccentric error on measurement of gear pitch deviation is estimated in computer simulation based on a geometric model of the profiling system. After that, a new scanning method named opposite-direction dual scanning method is proposed so that a steep profile of gear flank surface with a local slope of up to 90 can be measured by the developed rotary profiling system. For compensating distortions in the measured gear tooth profile, which are induced not only by the eccentric error but also by a probe offset introduced by the proposed scanning method, a self-calibration and compensation method is applied. To verify the feasibility of the proposed method, measurement of gear pitch deviation of a master involute spur gear with a certificate data is carried out. Measurement uncertainty of the proposed method is also analyzed.

Evaluation of Patient Residual Deviation and Its Impact on Dose Distribution for Proton Radiotherapy  

SciTech Connect

The residual deviations after final patient repositioning based on bony anatomy and the impact of such deviations on the proton dose distributions was investigated. Digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs) and kilovoltage (kV) 'portal verification' images from 10 patients treated with passively scattered proton radiotherapy was used to estimate the residual deviation. These changes were then applied to the location of isocenter points that, in effect, moved the isocenter relative to the apertures and compensators. A composite verification plan was obtained and compared with the original clinical treatment plan to evaluate any changes in dose distributions. The residual deviations were fitted to a Gaussian distribution with {mu} = -0.9 {+-} 0.1 mm and {sigma} = 2.55 {+-} 0.07 mm. The dose distribution showed under- and overcovered dose spots with complex dose distributions both in the target volumes and in the organs at risk. In some cases, this amounts to 63.5% above the intended clinical plan. Although patient positioning is carefully verified before treatment delivery and setup uncertainties are accounted for by using compensator smearing and aperture margins, a residual shift in a patient's position can considerably affect the dose distribution.

Recent HRIBF Research - Deviations from U(5) Symmetry in Recent HRIBF Research - Deviations from U(5) Symmetry in 116 Cd [J. C. Batchelder (UNIRIB), spokesperson] The cadmium isotopes near their mid-neutron shell, i.e., N=66, exhibit one of the well-known examples of shape coexistence [1]. In addition to the spherical quadrupole vibrational levels (hereafter referred to as normal phonon states), which are described within the Interacting Boson Model (IBM) by the U(5) limit, they possess intruding proton particle-hole configurations that give rise to additional states in the low-lying spectrum of levels [2]. These intruding excitations may mix with the normal states, perturbing their properties. However, once this mixing is accounted for [3], the underlying normal phonon states have been claimed to be very close to the

Geodesic Deviation Equation in GR equivalent theory of $f(T)$ gravity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this work, we show that it is possible to study the GR equivalent notion of geodesic deviation in $f(T)$ gravity, in spite of the fact that in teleparallel gravity there is no notion of geodesics, and the torsion is responsible for the appearance of gravitational interaction. In this regard, we obtain the GR equivalent of $f(T)$ gravity whose equations are in the modified gravity form such as $f(R)$ gravity. Then, we obtain the GDE within the context of this modified gravity. In this way, the obtained geodesic deviation equation will correspond to the $f(T)$ gravity. Eventually, we extend the calculations to obtain the modification of Matting relation.

Measurement of two-dimensional small angle deviation with a prism interferometer  

SciTech Connect

A new technique for the measurement of two-dimensional small angular deviation is presented. A compound prism, which effectively produces a combination of two right-angled prisms in orthogonal directions, and plane reference surfaces have been utilized for the measurement of the orthogonal components of the angular tilt of an incident plane wavefront. Each orthogonal component of the angular tilt is separately measured from the angular rotation of the resultant wedge fringes between two plane wavefronts generated due to splitting of the incident plane wavefront by the corresponding set of right-angled prism and plane reference surface. The technique is shown to have high sensitivity for the measurement of small angle deviation. A monolithic prism interferometer, which is practically insensitive to vibration, is also proposed. Results obtained for the measurement of a known tilt angle are presented.

Particle dynamics and deviation effects in the field of a strong electromagnetic wave  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Some strong field effects on test particle motion associated with the propagation of a plane electromagnetic wave in the exact theory of general relativity are investigated. Two different profiles of the associated radiation flux are considered in comparison, corresponding to either constant or oscillating electric and magnetic fields with respect to a natural family of observers. These are the most common situations to be experimentally explored, and have a well known counterpart in the flat spacetime limit. The resulting line elements are determined by a single metric function, which turns out to be expressed in terms of standard trigonometric functions in the case of a constant radiation flux, and in terms of special functions in the case of oscillating flux, leading to different features of test particle motion. The world line deviation between both uncharged and charged particles on different spacetime trajectories due to the combined effect of gravitational and electromagnetic forces is studied. The interaction of charged particles with the background radiation field is also discussed through a general relativistic description of the inverse Compton effect. Motion as well as deviation effects on particles endowed with spin are studied too. Special situations may occur in which the direction of the spin vector change during the interaction, leading to obsevables effects like spin-flip.

Geodesic deviations: modeling extreme mass-ratio systems and their gravitational waves  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The method of geodesic deviations has been applied to derive accurate analytic approximations to geodesics in Schwarzschild space-time. The results are used to construct analytic expressions for the source terms in the Regge-Wheeler and Zerilli-Moncrief equations, which describe the propagation of gravitational waves emitted by a compact massive object moving in the Schwarzschild background space-time. The wave equations are solved numerically to provide the asymptotic form of the wave at large distances for a series of non-circular bound orbits with periastron distances up to the ISCO radius, and the power emitted in gravitational waves by the extreme-mass ratio binary system is computed. The results compare well with those of purely numerical approaches.

Why not only electric discharge but even a minimum charge on the surface of highly sensitive explosives can catalyze their gradual exothermic decomposition and how a cloud of unipolar charged explosive particles turns into ball lightning  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Even a single excess electron or ion migrating on the surface of sensitive explosives can catalyze their gradual exothermic decomposition. Mechanisms underlying such a charge-induced gradual thermal decomposition of highly sensitive explosives can be different. If sensitive explosive is a polar liquid, intense charge-dipole attraction between excess surface charges and surrounding explosive molecules can result in repetitive attempts of solvation of these charges by polar explosive molecules. Every attempt of such uncompleted nonequilibrium solvation causes local exothermic decomposition of thermolabile polar molecules accompanied by further thermal jumping unsolvated excess charges to new surface sites. Thus, ionized mobile hot spots emerge on charged explosive surface. Stochastic migration of ionized hot spots on explosive surface causes gradual exothermic decomposition of the whole mass of the polar explosive. The similar gradual charge-catalyzed exothermic decomposition of both polar and nonpolar highly s...

SUZAKU OBSERVATIONS OF THE OUTSKIRTS OF A1835: DEVIATION FROM HYDROSTATIC EQUILIBRIUM  

SciTech Connect

We present results of four-pointing Suzaku X-ray observations (total {approx}200 ks) of the intracluster medium (ICM) in the A1835 galaxy cluster (kT {approx} 8 keV, z = 0.253) out to the virial radius (r{sub vir} {approx} 2.9 Mpc) and beyond. Faint X-ray emission from the ICM out to r{sub vir} is detected. The temperature gradually decreases with radius from {approx}8 keV in the inner region to {approx}2 keV at r{sub vir}. The entropy profile is shown to flatten beyond r{sub 500}, in disagreement with the r {sup 1.1} dependence predicted from the accretion shock heating model. The thermal pressure profile in the range 0.3r{sub 500} {approx}< r {approx}< r{sub vir} agrees well with that obtained from the stacked Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect observations with the Planck satellite. The hydrostatic mass profile in the cluster outskirts (r{sub 500} {approx}< r {approx}< r{sub vir}) falls well short of the weak-lensing one derived from Subaru/Suprime-Cam observations, showing an unphysical decrease with radius. The gas mass fraction at r{sub vir} defined with the lensing total mass agrees with the cosmic baryon fraction from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe seven-year data. All these results indicate, rather than the gas-clumping effect, that the bulk of the ICM in the cluster outskirts is far from hydrostatic equilibrium and infalling matter retained some of its kinetic energy. Finally, combining with our recent Suzaku and lensing analysis of A1689, a cluster of similar mass, temperature, and redshift, we show that the cluster temperature distribution in the outskirts is significantly correlated with the galaxy density field in the surrounding large-scale environment at (1-2)r{sub vir}.

SOURCE REGIONS OF THE INTERPLANETARY MAGNETIC FIELD AND VARIABILITY IN HEAVY-ION ELEMENTAL COMPOSITION IN GRADUAL SOLAR ENERGETIC PARTICLE EVENTS  

SciTech Connect

Gradual solar energetic particle (SEP) events are those in which ions are accelerated to their observed energies by interactions with a shock driven by a fast coronal mass ejection (CME). Previous studies have shown that much of the observed event-to-event variability can be understood in terms of shock speed and evolution in the shock-normal angle. However, an equally important factor, particularly for the elemental composition, is the origin of the suprathermal seed particles upon which the shock acts. To tackle this issue, we (1) use observed solar-wind speed, magnetograms, and the potential-field source-surface model to map the Sun-L1 interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) line back to its source region on the Sun at the time of the SEP observations and (2) then look for a correlation between SEP composition (as measured by Wind and Advanced Composition Explorer at ?2-30 MeV nucleon{sup 1}) and characteristics of the identified IMF source regions. The study is based on 24 SEP events, identified as a statistically significant increase in ?20 MeV protons and occurring in 1998 and 2003-2006, when the rate of newly emergent solar magnetic flux and CMEs was lower than in solar-maximum years, and the field-line tracing is therefore more likely to be successful. We find that the gradual SEP Fe/O is correlated with the field strength at the IMF source, with the largest enhancements occurring when the footpoint field is strong due to the nearby presence of an active region (AR). In these cases, other elemental ratios show a strong charge-to-mass (q/M) ordering (at least on average), similar to that found in impulsive events. Such results lead us to suggest that magnetic reconnection in footpoint regions near ARs bias the heavy-ion composition of suprathermal seed ions by processes qualitatively similar to those that produce larger heavy-ion enhancements in impulsive SEP events. To address potential technical concerns about our analysis, we also discuss efforts to exclude impulsive SEP events from our event sample.

Large-deviation principles, stochastic effective actions, path entropies, and the structure and meaning of thermodynamic descriptions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The meaning of thermodynamic descriptions is found in large-deviations scaling of the fluctuations probabilities. The primary large-deviations rate function is the entropy, which is the basis for both fluctuation theorems and for characterizing the thermodynamic interactions of systems. Freidlin-Wentzell theory provides a general formulation of large-deviations scaling for non-equilibrium stochastic processes, through a representation in terms of a Hamiltonian dynamical system. A number of related methods now exist to construct the Freidlin-Wentzell Hamiltonian for many kinds of stochastic processes; one method due to Doi and Peliti, appropriate to integer counting statistics, is widely used in reaction-diffusion theory. Using these tools together with a path-entropy method due to Jaynes, we show how to construct entropy functions that both express large-deviations scaling of fluctuations, and describe system-environment interactions, for discrete stochastic processes either at or away from equilibrium. A collection of variational methods familiar within quantum field theory, but less commonly applied to the Doi-Peliti construction, is used to define a "stochastic effective action", which is the large-deviations rate function for arbitrary non-equilibrium paths. We show how common principles of entropy maximization, applied to different ensembles of states or of histories, lead to different entropy functions and different sets of thermodynamic state variables. Yet the relations of among all these levels of description may be constructed explicitly and understood in terms of information conditions. The example systems considered introduce methods that may be used to systematically construct descriptions with all the features familiar from equilibrium thermodynamics, for a much wider range of systems describable by stochastic processes.

Why not only electric discharge but even a minimum charge on the surface of highly sensitive explosives can catalyze their gradual exothermic decomposition and how a cloud of unipolar charged explosive particles turns into ball lightning  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Even a single excess electron or ion migrating on the surface of sensitive explosives can catalyze their gradual exothermic decomposition. Mechanisms underlying such a charge-induced gradual thermal decomposition of highly sensitive explosives can be different. If sensitive explosive is a polar liquid, intense charge-dipole attraction between excess surface charges and surrounding explosive molecules can result in repetitive attempts of solvation of these charges by polar explosive molecules. Every attempt of such uncompleted nonequilibrium solvation causes local exothermic decomposition of thermolabile polar molecules accompanied by further thermal jumping unsolvated excess charges to new surface sites. Thus, ionized mobile hot spots emerge on charged explosive surface. Stochastic migration of ionized hot spots on explosive surface causes gradual exothermic decomposition of the whole mass of the polar explosive. The similar gradual charge-catalyzed exothermic decomposition of both polar and nonpolar highly sensitive explosives can be also caused by intense charge-dipole attacks of surrounding water vapor molecules electrostatically attracted from ambient humid air and strongly accelerated towards charged sites on explosive surfaces. Emission of electrons, photons and heat from ionized hot spots randomly migrating on charged surface of highly sensitive explosive aerosol nanoparticles converts such particles into the form of short-circuited thermionic nanobatteries.

Imprints of deviations from the gravitational inverse-square law on the power spectrum of mass fluctuations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Deviations from the gravitational inverse-square law would imprint scale-dependent features on the power spectrum of mass density fluctuations. We model such deviations as a Yukawa-like contribution to the gravitational potential and discuss the growth function in a mixed dark matter model with adiabatic initial conditions. Evolution of perturbations is considered in general non-flat cosmological models with a cosmological constant, and an analytical approximation for the growth function is provided. The coupling between baryons and cold dark matter across recombination is negligibly affected by modified gravity physics if the proper cutoff length of the long-range Yukawa-like force is > 10 h^{-1} Mpc. Enhancement of gravity affects the subsequent evolution, boosting large-scale power in a way that resembles the effect of a lower matter density. This phenomenon is almost perfectly degenerate in power-spectrum shape with the effect of a background of massive neutrinos. Back-reaction on density growth from a modified cosmic expansion rate should however also affect the normalization of the power spectrum, with a shape distortion similar to the case of a non-modified background.

Deviation of Stellar Orbits from Test Particle Trajectories around SgrA* Due to Tides and Winds  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Monitoring the orbits of stars around SgrA* offers the possibility of detecting the precession of their orbital planes due to frame dragging, of measuring the spin and quadrupole moment of the black hole, and of testing the no-hair theorem. Here we investigate whether the deviations of stellar orbits from test-particle trajectories due to wind mass loss and tidal dissipation of the orbital energy compromise such measurements. We find that the effects of stellar winds are, in general, negligible. On the other hand, for the most eccentric orbits (e > 0.96) for which an optical interferometer, such as GRAVITY, will detect orbital plane precession due to frame dragging, the tidal dissipation of orbital energy occurs at timescales comparable to the timescale of precession due to the quadrupole moment of the black hole. As a result, this non-conservative effect is a potential source of systematic uncertainty in testing the no-hair theorem with stellar orbits.

Large deviation function for the Eden model and universality within the one-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang class  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

It has been recently conjectured that for large systems, the shape of the central part of the large deviation function of the growth velocity would be universal for all the growth systems described by the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation in 1+1 dimension. One signature of this universality would be that the ratio of cumulants Rt=[?ht3?c]2/[?ht2?c?ht4?c] would tend towards a universal value 0.415 17 as t tends to infinity, provided periodic boundary conditions are used. This has recently been questioned by Stauffer. In this paper we summarize various numerical and analytical results supporting this conjecture, and report in particular some numerical measurements of the ratio Rt for the Eden model.

Large Deviations in Stochastic Heat-Conduction Processes Provide a Gradient-Flow Structure for Heat Conduction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider three one-dimensional continuous-time Markov processes on a lattice, each of which models the conduction of heat: the family of Brownian Energy Processes with parameter $m$, a Generalized Brownian Energy Process, and the Kipnis-Marchioro-Presutti process. The hydrodynamic limit of each of these three processes is a parabolic equation, the linear heat equation in the case of the BEP$(m)$ and the KMP, and a nonlinear heat equation for the GBEP($a$). We prove the hydrodynamic limit rigorously for the BEP$(m)$, and give a formal derivation for the GBEP($a$). We then formally derive the pathwise large-deviation rate functional for the empirical measure of the three processes. These rate functionals imply gradient-flow structures for the limiting linear and nonlinear heat equations. We contrast these gradient-flow structures with those for processes describing the diffusion of mass, most importantly the class of Wasserstein gradient-flow systems. The linear and nonlinear heat-equation gradient-flow structures are each driven by entropy terms of the form $-\\log \\rho$; they involve dissipation or mobility terms of order $\\rho^2$ for the linear heat equation, and a nonlinear function of $\\rho$ for the nonlinear heat equation.

Patterns of deviation from the standard model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Effective lagrangians can be used to parametrize the effects of physics beyond the Standard Model. Assuming the complete theory is a gauge theory, we determine which effective operators may be generated at tree level, and which are only generated at loop level. The latter are suppressed by factors of 116?2 and will therefore be quite difficult to detect. In particular, all operators changing the Standard-Model structure of the triplegauge-vector couplings fall into this category. We also point out that in certain cases, dimension-eight operators may be more important than dimension-six operators. We discuss both the linear and non-linear representation of the Higgs sector.

Deviation from Quark Number Scaling of the Anisotropy Parameter v2 of Pions, Kaons, and Protons in Au+Au Collisions at s_NN = 200 GeV  

SciTech Connect

Measurements of the anisotropy parameter v{sub 2} of identified hadrons (pions, kaons, and protons) as a function of centrality, transverse momentum p{sub T}, and transverse kinetic energy KE{sub T} at midrapidity (|{eta}| < 0.35) in Au + Au collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV are presented. Pions and protons are identified up to p{sub T} = 6 GeV/c, and kaons up to p{sub T} = 4 GeV/c, by combining information from time-of-flight and aerogel Cerenkov detectors in the PHENIX Experiment. The scaling of v{sub 2} with the number of valence quarks (n{sub q}) has been studied in different centrality bins as a function of transverse momentum and transverse kinetic energy. A deviation from previously observed quark-number scaling is observed at large values of KE{sub T}/n{sub q} in noncentral Au + Au collisions (20-60%), but this scaling remains valid in central collisions (0-10%).

Potential for Higher Treatment Failure in Obese Patients: Correlation of Elevated Body Mass Index and Increased Daily Prostate Deviations From the Radiation Beam Isocenters in an Analysis of 1,465 Computed Tomographic Images  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: Recent clinical outcome studies on prostate cancer have reported the influence of patient's obesity on the biochemical failure rates after various treatment modalities. In this study, we investigated the effect of patient's physical characteristics on prostate shift in external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and hypothesized that there maybe a correlation between patient physique and tumor shift. Methods and Materials: A retrospective analysis was performed using data for 117 patients who received image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) for prostate cancer between January 2005 and April 2007. A total of 1,465 CT scans were analyzed. The standard deviations (SDs) of prostate shifts for all patients, along with patient weight, body mass index (BMI), and subcutaneous adipose-tissue thickness (SAT), were determined. Spearman rank correlation analysis was performed. Results: Of the 117 patients, 26.5% were considered normal weight, 48.7% were overweight, 17.9% were mildly obese, and 6.9% were moderately to severely obese. Notably 1.3%, 1.5%, 2.0%, and 21.2% of the respective shifts were greater than 10 mm in the left-right (LR) direction for the four patient groups, whereas in the anterior-posterior direction the shifts are 18.2%, 12.6%, 6.7%, and 21.0%, respectively. Strong correlations were observed between SAT, BMI, patient weight, and SDs of daily shifts in the LR direction (p < 0.01). Conclusions: The strong correlation between obesity and shift indicates that without image-guided radiation therapy, the target volume (prostate with or without seminal vesicles) may not receive the intended dose for patients who are moderate to severely obese. This may explain the higher recurrence rate with conventional external beam radiation therapy.

Influence of quantum matter fluctuations on geodesic deviation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the passive influence of quantum matter fluctuations on the expansion parameter of a congruence of timelike geodesics in a semiclassical regime. In particular, we show that, the perturbations of this parameter can be considered to be elements of the algebra of matter fields at all perturbative order. Hence, once a quantum state for matter is chosen, it is possible to explicitly evaluate the behavior of geometric fluctuations. After introducing the formalism necessary to treat similar problems, in the last part of the paper, we estimate the approximated probability of having a geodesic collapse in a flat spacetime due to those fluctuations.

Device and method for measuring multi-phase fluid flow in a conduit having an abrupt gradual bend  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A system is described for measuring fluid flow in a conduit having an abrupt bend. The system includes pressure transducers, one disposed in the conduit at the inside of the bend and one or more disposed in the conduit at the outside of the bend but spaced a distance therefrom. The pressure transducers measure the pressure of fluid in the conduit at the locations of the pressure transducers and this information is used by a computational device to calculate fluid flow rate in the conduit. For multi-phase fluid, the density of the fluid is measured by another pair of pressure transducers, one of which is located in the conduit elevationally above the other. The computation device then uses the density measurement along with the fluid pressure measurements, to calculate fluid flow. 1 fig.

Mutations in FMN Binding Pocket Diminish Chromate Reduction Rates for Gh-ChrR Isolated from Gluconacetobacter hansenii  

SciTech Connect

A putative chromate ion binding site was identified proximal to a rigidly bound FMN from electron densities in the crystal structure of the quinone reductase from Gluconacetobacter hansenii (Gh-ChrR) (3s2y.pdb). To clarify the location of the chromate binding site, and to understand the role of FMN in the NADPH-dependent reduction of chromate, we have expressed and purified four mutant enzymes involving the site-specific substitution of individual side chains within the FMN binding pocket that form non-covalent bonds with the ribityl phosphate (i.e., S15A and R17A in loop 1 between ?1 sheet and ?1 helix) or the isoalloxanzine ring (E83A or Y84A in loop 4 between the ?3 sheet and ?4 helix). Mutations that selectively disrupt hydrogen bonds between either the N3 nitrogen on the isoalloxanzine ring (i.e., E83) or the ribitylphos- phoate (i.e., S15) respectively result in 50% or 70% reductions in catalytic rates of chromate reduction. In comparison, mutations that disrupt ?-? ring stacking interactions with the isoal-loxanzine ring (i.e., Y84) or a salt bridge with the ribityl phosphate result in 87% and 97% inhibittion. In all cases there are minimal alterations in chromate binding affinities. Collectively, these results support the hypothesis that chromate binds proximal to FMN, and implicate a structural role for FMN positioning for optimal chromate reduction rates. As side chains proximal to the ?3/?4 FMN binding loop 4 contribute to both NADH and metal ion binding, we propose a model in which structural changes around the FMN binding pocket couples to both chromate and NADH binding sites.

TO REFLECT CHANGES TO THE TO REFLECT CHANGES TO THE COOPERA TNE AUDIT STRATEGY BACKGROUND DOE's Office of Inspector General (IG) is statutorily responsible for the audit of DOE's management and operating contracts (M&Os). Those contracts have two significant financial characteristics in common: (1) the use of special bank accounts for payment of contract costs and (2) the annual reconciliation of contract costs through the use of a Statement of Costs Incurred and Claimed. These two characteristics operate in tandem, replacing a system of vouchers to reimburse incurred costs normally used on government cost type contracts. M&O contracts incur costs of several hundreds of millions of dollars to more than $1 billion. The IG has designed a Cooperative Audit Strategy to fulfill its M&O audit responsibilities. That

Strong carrier localization and diminished quantum-confined Stark effect in ultra-thin high-indium-content InGaN quantum wells with violet light emission  

SciTech Connect

Here, we report on the optical and structural characteristics of violet-light-emitting, ultra-thin, high-Indium-content (UTHI) InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs), and of conventional low-In-content MQWs, which both emit at similar emission energies though having different well thicknesses and In compositions. The spatial inhomogeneity of In content, and the potential fluctuation in high-efficiency UTHI MQWs were compared to those in the conventional low-In-content MQWs. We conclude that the UTHI InGaN MQWs are a promising structure for achieving better quantum efficiency in the visible and near-ultraviolet spectral range, owing to their strong carrier localization and reduced quantum-confined Stark effect.

Extension of energy crops on surplus agricultural lands: A potentially viable option in developing countries while fossil fuel reserves are diminishing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The rapid depletion of fossil fuel reserves and environmental concerns with their combustion necessitate looking for alternative sources for long term sustainability of the world. These concerns also appear serious in developing countries who are striving for rapid economic growth. The net biomass growing potential on the global land surface is 10 times more than the global food, feed, fiber, and energy demands. This study investigates whether the developing countries have sufficient land resource to meet the projected energy demand towards 2035 by planting energy crops on surplus agricultural land after food and feed production. The annual yields of four commonly grown energy crops specifically jatropha, switchgrass, miscanthus, and willow have been used to make scenarios and estimate land requirements against each scenario. This paper first performs literature reviews on the availability of land resource, past and future trends in land use changes, demand of lands for food production, and potential expansion of croplands. The energy demands towards 2035 are compiled from energy scenarios derived by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the British Petroleum (BP). This paper also reviewed bio-physiological characteristics of these energy crops to determine whether they are cultivable under tropical climatic conditions in developing regions. This paper found that projected energy demand through 2035 in developing regions could be provided by energy crops grown on a portion of surplus croplands or upgraded grasslands (27% and 22% respectively for miscanthus scenario). Sustainable land management practices, improved agricultural productivity, and adopting suitable energy crops cultivation can potentially supply increasing energy demands.

A Synthetic Substrate of DNA Polymerase Deviating from the Bases, Sugar, and Leaving Group of Canonical Deoxynucleoside Triphosphates  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary The selection of artificial nucleic acids to be used for synthetic biology purposes is based on their structural and biochemical orthogonality to the natural system. We describe the example of a nucleotide mimic that functions as a substrate for polymerases and in which the carbohydrate moiety as well as the base moiety and the leaving group are different from that of the natural building blocks. The nucleotides themselves have two anomeric centers, and different leaving group properties of substituents at both anomeric centers need to be exploited to perform selective glycosylation reactions for their synthesis. In addition, the reversibility of the polymerase reaction at the level of the template has been demonstrated when pyrophosphate functions as leaving group and not with the alternative leaving groups.

Development of an improved CNC interpolator and performance evaluation in terms of chordal error and feedrate deviation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The parametric interpolators of modern CNC machines use Taylor's series approximation to generate successive parameter values which, after substituting into the curve equation, gives the x, y, z coordinates of the tool positions. In order to achieve greater accuracy, higher order derivatives are required which complicates the calculation when the curve is represented by NURBS curve. This method calculates the chordal error on a given segment by estimating the curvature which neglects a fraction of the error. In order to avoid calculating higher derivatives and make the calculations easier the classical fourth-order Runge-Kutta (RK) method is proposed in this research, which only requires the first derivative to be calculated, but achieves the accuracy of Taylor's approximation with higher order terms. This paper also proposes the estimation of chordal error on the average value of the parameters at the end points of a given curve segment, which does not require calculation of curvature at every segment. Finally computer simulation is performed on different types of spline curves to show that the proposed method results in reduced chordal error and less fluctuation in feedrate.

Hausdorff and packing spectra, large deviations, and free energy for branching random walks in $\\R^d$  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Consider an $\\R^d$-valued branching random walk (BRW) on a supercritical Galton Watson tree. Without any assumption on the distribution of this BRW we compute, almost surely and simultaneously, the Hausdorff and packing dimensions of the level sets $E(K)$ of infinite branches in the boundary of the tree (endowed with its standard metric) along which the averages of the BRW have a given closed connected set of limit points $K$. This goes beyond multifractal analysis, which only considers those level sets when $K$ ranges in the set of singletons $\\{\\alpha\\}$, $\\alpha\\in\\R^d$. We also give a $0$-$\\infty$ law for the Hausdorff and packing measures of the level sets $E(\\{\\alpha\\})$, and compute the free energy of the associated logarithmically correlated random energy model in full generality. Moreover, our results complete the previous works on multifractal analysis by including the levels $\\alpha$ which do not belong to the range of the gradient of the free energy. This covers in particular a situation until now badly understood, namely the case where a first order phase transition occurs. As a consequence of our study, we can also describe the whole singularity spectrum of Mandelbrot measures, as well as the associated free energy function (or $L^q$-spectrum), when a first order phase transition occurs.

Deviations from the Matthiessen Rule Due to Possible Changes in the Phonon Spectrum of Dilute Magnesium Alloys  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The resistivity of polycrystalline alloys of magnesium with lithium, silver, cadmium or tin, in concentrations up to 1.3 at.% has been measured in the temperature range 1.2 to 300K. The increase in resistivity at room temperature due to alloying (impurity resistivity) and the decrease in slope of the resistivity-temperature curve of the alloys with increasing alloy concentration, i.e., electron-per-atom ratio, agree with the results reported by Salkovitz, Schindler, and Kammer. An exception is the results for lithium, for which a smaller impurity resistivity has been found. The impurity resistivity may vary by as much as 10% from room temperature to the helium-temperature range. Below 20K this temperature dependence satisfies the correction introduced by Kohler, which requires an increase in the impurity resistivity with respect to its value at 0K, proportional to the ideal resistivity of the base metal. Instead of being a constant at higher temperatures, as the Kohler correction would imply, the impurity resistivity decreases for temperatures where the ideal resistivity exceeds the impurity resistivity. As a possible explanation it is suggested that the temperature-dependent part of the alloy resistivity is a corrected ideal resistivity of the pure metal. This leads then to a supposed decrease in the Debye temperature of the magnesium due to the presence of foreign atoms. This explanation and the order of magnitudes involved are in reasonable agreement with published data on the variation of the elastic constants of magnesium upon alloying. The results indicate that besides a change in the phonon spectrum the observed effects depend also on the electron-per-atom ratios for the alloys.

LoCuSS: A COMPARISON OF CLUSTER MASS MEASUREMENTS FROM XMM-NEWTON AND SUBARU-TESTING DEVIATION FROM HYDROSTATIC EQUILIBRIUM AND NON-THERMAL PRESSURE SUPPORT  

SciTech Connect

We compare X-ray hydrostatic and weak-lensing mass estimates for a sample of 12 clusters that have been observed with both XMM-Newton and Subaru. At an over-density of DELTA = 500, we obtain 1 - M {sup X}/M {sup WL} = 0.01 +- 0.07 for the whole sample. We also divided the sample into undisturbed and disturbed sub-samples based on quantitative X-ray morphologies using asymmetry and fluctuation parameters, obtaining 1 - M {sup X}/M {sup WL} = 0.09 +- 0.06 and -0.06 +- 0.12 for the undisturbed and disturbed clusters, respectively. In addition to non-thermal pressure support, there may be a competing effect associated with adiabatic compression and/or shock heating which leads to overestimate of X-ray hydrostatic masses for disturbed clusters, for example, in the famous merging cluster A1914. Despite the modest statistical significance of the mass discrepancy, on average, in the undisturbed clusters, we detect a clear trend of improving agreement between M {sup X} and M {sup WL} as a function of increasing over-density, M{sup X}/M{sup WL}=(0.908+-0.004)+(0.187+-0.010){center_dot} log{sub 10}(DELTA/500). We also examine the gas mass fractions, f{sub gas} = M {sup gas}/M {sup WL}, finding that they are an increasing function of cluster radius, with no dependence on dynamical state, in agreement with predictions from numerical simulations. Overall, our results demonstrate that XMM-Newton and Subaru are a powerful combination for calibrating systematic uncertainties in cluster mass measurements.

Determination of {sup 13}C NMR isotropic Knight shift and deviation from BCS relation in {ital A}{sub 3}C{sub 60} superconductors

We determined the isotropic {sup 13}C NMR hyperfine coupling constant as {ital a}{sub iso}/2{pi}=0.69{plus_minus}0.06 MHz for the C{sub 60}{sup 3{minus}} ion near room temperature (RT).

Kohn-Sham Kinetic Energy Density in the Nuclear and Asymptotic Regions: Deviations from the Von Weizs\\"acker Behavior and Applications to Density Functionals  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We show that the Kohn-Sham positive-definite kinetic energy (KE) density significantly differs from the von Weizs\\"acker (VW) one at the nuclear cusp as well as in the asymptotic region. At the nuclear cusp, the VW functional is shown to be linear and the contribution of p-type orbitals to the KE density is theoretically derived and numerically demonstrated in the limit of infinite nuclear charge, as well in the semiclassical limit of neutral large atoms. In the latter case, it reaches 12 of the KE density. In the asymptotic region we find new exact constraints for meta Generalized Gradient Approximation (meta-GGA) exchange functionals: with an exchange enhancement factor proportional to $\\sqrt{\\alpha}$, where $\\alpha$ is the common meta-GGA ingredient, both the exchange energy density and the potential are proportional to the exact ones. In addition, this describes exactly the large-gradient limit of quasi-two dimensional systems.

Deviations from Fermi-liquid behavior in (2+1)-dimensional quantum electrodynamics and the normal phase of high-Tc superconductors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We argue that the gauge-fermion interaction in multiflavor quantum electrodynamics in (2+1) dimensions is responsible for non-Fermi-liquid behavior in the infrared, in the sense of leading to the existence of a nontrivial (quasi)fixed point that lies between the trivial fixed point (at infinite momenta) and the region where dynamical symmetry breaking and mass generation occurs. This quasifixed-point structure implies slowly varying, rather than fixed, couplings in the intermediate regime of momenta, a situation which resembles that of (four-dimensional) "walking technicolor" models of particle physics. The inclusion of wave-function renormalization yields marginal O(1N) corrections to the "bulk" non-Fermi-liquid behavior caused by the gauge inter-action in the limit of infinite flavor number. Such corrections lead to the appearance of modified critical exponents. In particular, at low temperatures there appear to be logarithmic scaling violations of the linear resistivity of the system of order O(1N). The connection with the anomalous normal-state properties of certain condensed-matter systems relevant for high-temperature superconductivity is briefly discussed. The relevance of the large (flavor) N expansion to the Fermi-liquid problem is emphasized. As a partial result of our analysis, we point out the absence of charge-density-wave instabilities from the effective low-energy theory, as a consequence of gauge invariance.

At the end of 2009, the GOM Fed accounted for close to one-fifth of oil proved reserves (second only to Texas) and just over four percent of natural gas proved reserves (the country's seventh largest reporting region). 1 Natural gas proved reserves from the GOM Fed have gradually diminished, both volumetrically and as a percentage of overall U.S. proved reserves. The latter is especially true in recent years as onshore additions (particularly those associated with shale gas activity) have increased considerably. Proved oil reserves from

Calculation of transmission system losses for the Taiwan Power Company by the artificial neural network with time decayed weight  

SciTech Connect

For energy conservation and improvement of power system operation efficiency, how to reduce the transmission system losses becomes an important topic of grave concern. To understand the cause, and to evaluate the amount, of the losses are the prior steps to diminish them. To simplify the evaluation procedure without losing too much accuracy, this paper adopts the artificial neural network, which is a model free network, to analyze the transmission system losses. As the artificial neural network with time decayed weight has the capability of learning, memorizing, and forgetting, it is more suitable for a power system with gradually changing characteristics. By using this artificial neural network, the estimation of transmission system losses will be more precise. In this paper, comparison will be made between the results of artificial neural network analysis and polynomial loss equations analysis.

Correlating Fourier phase information with real-space higher order statistics in CMB data  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present a heuristic study on the correlations between harmonic space phase information and higher-order statistics. Using the spherical full-sky maps of the cosmic microwave background as an example, we demonstrate that known phase correlations at large spatial scales can gradually be diminished when subtracting a suitable best-fit (Bianchi-)template map of a given strength. The weaker phase correlations are attended by a vanishing signature of anisotropy when measuring the Minkowski functionals and scaling indices in real space with the aid of surrogate maps being free of phase correlations. Those investigations can open a new road to a better understanding of signatures of non-Gaussianities in complex spatial structures, especially by elucidating the meaning of Fourier phase correlations and their influence on higher-order statistics.

Rheological Signatures of Gelation and Effect of Shear Melting on Aging Colloidal Suspension  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Colloidal suspensions that are out of thermodynamic equilibrium undergo physical aging wherein their structure evolves to lower the free energy. In aqueous suspension of Laponite, physical aging accompanies increases of elastic and viscous moduli as a function of time. In this work we study temporal evolution of elastic and viscous moduli at different frequencies and observe that freshly prepared aqueous suspension of Laponite demonstrates identical rheological behavior reported for the crosslinking polymeric materials undergoing chemical gelation. Consequently at a certain time tan{\\delta} is observed to be independent of frequency. However, for samples preserved under rest condition for longer duration before applying the shear melting, the liquid to solid transition subsequent to shear melting shows greater deviation from classical gelation. We also obtain continuous relaxation time spectra from the frequency dependence of viscous modulus. We observe that, with increase in the rest time, continuous relaxation time spectrum shows gradual variation from negative slope, describing dominance of fast relaxation modes to positive slope representing dominance of slow relaxation modes. We propose that the deviation from gelation behavior for the shear melted suspensions originates from inability of shear melting to completely break the percolated structure thereby creating unbroken aggregates. The volume fraction of such unbroken aggregates increases with the rest time. For small rest times presence of fewer number of unbroken aggregates cause deviation from the classical gelation. On the other hand, at high rest times presence of greater fraction of unbroken aggregates subsequent to shear melting demonstrate dynamic arrest leading to inversion of relaxation time spectra.

Optimization of quantum interferometric metrological sensors in the presence of photon loss  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We optimize two-mode, entangled, number states of light in the presence of loss in order to maximize the extraction of the available phase information in an interferometer. Our approach optimizes over the entire available input Hilbert space with no constraints, other than fixed total initial photon number. We optimize to maximize the Fisher information, which is equivalent to minimizing the phase uncertainty. We find that in the limit of zero loss the optimal state is the so-called N00N state, for small loss, the optimal state gradually deviates from the N00N state, and in the limit of large loss the optimal state converges to a generalized two-mode coherent state, with a finite total number of photons. The results provide a general protocol for optimizing the performance of a quantum optical interferometer in the presence of photon loss, with applications to quantum imaging, metrology, sensing, and information processing.

Quantitative analysis of basin-scale heterogeneities using sonic-log data in the Yanchang Basin  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A random medium is used to investigate reservoir heterogeneities in this study. Random media are characterized by autocorrelation functions that allow a construction of spatially anisotropic random structures with different correlation lengths and fluctuation standard deviations. Based on the analysis, we calculate a power spectrum using fast Fourier transform (FFT), which is observed in spatial wavelengths ranging from a few metres to a few thousand metres. Correlation distance and root mean square (RMS) height are directly obtained from the power spectrum. Numerical experiments show that the correlation length and fluctuation standard deviation can cause correlation distance and RMS height undergoing variations. Combining the characteristics of statistical parameters and sonic-log data, we quantitatively analyse the reservoir heterogeneities in the Yanchang Basin. The correlation distance and RMS height of coarse lithofacies in fluvial sandstones interpret a high-energy deposit and strong heterogeneity, affected by different lithological combinations. The correlation lengths decrease gradually from shales, tight sands to gas-bearing sands. Using the sonic-log data from 28 wells in the Yanchang Basin, we compute the isolines of correlation distances and RMS heights for both the He-8 and Shan-1 members in the studied area, which present a correlation with the distribution of gas. This offers an improved foundation for reservoir lateral prediction.

Researchers Directly Observe Oxygen Signature in the Researchers Directly Observe Oxygen Signature in the Oxygen-evolving Complex of Photosynthesis Arguably the most important chemical reaction on earth is the photosynthetic splitting of water to molecular oxygen by the Mn-containing oxygen-evolving complex (Mn-OEC) in the protein known as photosystem II (PSII). It is this reaction which has, over the course of some 3.8 billion years, gradually filled our atmosphere with O2 and consequently enabled and sustained the evolution of complex aerobic life. Coupled to the reduction of carbon dioxide, biological photosynthesis contributes foodstuffs for nutrition while recycling CO2 from the atmosphere and replacing it with O2. By utilizing sunlight to power these energy-requiring reactions, photosynthesis also serves as a model for addressing societal energy needs as we enter an era of diminishing fossil fuel resources and climate change. Understanding, at the molecular level, the dynamics and mechanisms behind photosynthesis is of fundamental importance and will prove critical to the future design of devices aimed at converting sunlight into electrochemical energy and transportable fuel.

Decay of the Cosmic Vacuum Energy  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Energy-momentum conservation suggests that a vacuum in thermal equilibrium with a bath of radiation during inflation should gradually diminish the vacuum energy. We find that coupling to a bath of black-body radiation at temperature $T=H/2 \\pi$ requires the Hubble rate, $H$, to evolve as in the "intermediate inflation" scenario, with $H \\propto t^{-1/3}$, rather than as a constant. Such behaviour does not conflict with observations when the vacuum energy is described by a slowly-rolling scalar field, but will change the asymptotic states of the universe. We find that this scenario introduces a curvature singularity at early times. The scale factor takes a finite non-zero value at this singularity, while the energy densities in radiation and the vacuum diverge to positive and negative infinity, respectively. This shows that inflation is possible even when the energy density of the vacuum is large and negative. Furthermore, the introduction of an additional non-interacting perfect fluid into the space-time reve...

The reconstruction of supported platinum particles monitored by methylcyclohexane dehydrogenation and H[sub 2] TPD  

SciTech Connect

Alteration of the dehydrogenation activity of [alpha]-alumina-supported platinum particles induced by a high-temperature (723 K) treatment in argon atmosphere has been investigated. The methyl-cyclohexane dehydrogenation rate over reduced platinum particles is highly dependent on the argon treatment applied at 723 K after hydrogen treatment at the same temperature. With an increasing exposure time to the argon stream, the reaction rate increases sharply to a maximum and gradually diminishes afterwards to a stable value for a prolonged exposure time. This change is the result of two modifying actions induced by inert gas: (1) the desorption of tightly bound hydrogen species, responsible for the low initial activity, and (2) the reconstruction of the platinum crystallite surface toward a more stable active surface. The presence of [open quotes]high-temperature hydrogen[close quotes] is systematically observed on small particles after hydrogen treatment at 723 K and seems to be related to the specific electronic properties of small particles and not to their surface structure. The reconstruction of the surface of the particles is by contrast very important for obtaining stable catalytic activity. Highly dispersed (80-90%), restructured catalysts were found to be similar in stability to mediumly dispersed (45%) catalysts. 32 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.

Simulation study on lignite-fired power system integrated with flue gas drying and waste heat recovery Performances under variable power loads coupled with off-design parameters  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Lignite is a kind of low rank coal with high moisture content and low net heating value, which is mainly used for electric power generation. However, the thermal efficiency of power plants firing lignite directly is very low. Pre-drying is a proactive option, dehydrating raw lignite to raise its heating value, to improve the power plant thermal efficiency. A pre-dried lignite-fired power system integrated with boiler flue gas drying and waste heat recovery was proposed in this paper. The plant thermal efficiency could be improved by 1.51% at benchmark condition due to pre-drying and waste heat recovery. The main system performances under variable power loads were simulated and analyzed. Simulation results show that the improvement of plant thermal efficiency reduced to 1.36% at 50% full load. Moreover, the influences of drying system off-design parameters were simulated coupled with power loads. The variation tendencies of main system parameters were obtained. The influence of pre-drying degree (including moisture content of pre-dried lignite and raw lignite) on the plant thermal efficiency diminishes gradually with the decreasing power load. The dryer thermal efficiency and dryer exhaust temperature are also main factors and the influences on system parameters have been quantitatively analyzed.

Electrochemical behaviors of co-deposited Pb/PbMnO2 composite anode in sulfuric acid solution Tafel and EIS investigations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The oxygen evolution kinetics and anodic layer properties of Pb/PbMnO2 composite anode during the 72h galvanostatic electrolysis in H2SO4 solution were investigated with Quasi-stationary polarization (Tafel) and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) techniques. The results revealed that the anodic activity and reaction kinetics varied a lot during the electrolysis for it is a process indicating the formation and stabilization of anodic layer. At the very beginning of electrolysis, the composite anode exhibited very high oxygen evolution activity since the reaction was controlled by the transformation step of intermediates. Then, its oxygen evolution activity was largely diminished and the rate determination step (rds) became the formation and adsorption of first intermediate, SOHads. In the prolonged electrolysis, the anodic potential gradually decreased and the final stable value was comparable to industrial PbAg (1.0%) anode. On the stable anodic layer after 72h, the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) was still controlled by the formation and adsorption of intermediate, and the adsorption resistance took a dominant part in the whole impedance. Besides, compared with PbAg and Pb anode, although OER at the stable state were all controlled by the intermediate adsorption process, the adsorption resistance of Pb/PbMnO2 anode was much smaller than the other two due to the existence of MnO2 particles and large amount of ?-PbO2 in the stable anodic layer.

Dark matter vs. modifications of the gravitational inverse-square law. Results from planetary motion in the solar system  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Dark matter or modifications of the Newtonian inverse-square law in the solar-system are studied with accurate planetary astrometric data. From extra-perihelion precession and possible changes in the third Kepler's law, we get an upper limit on the local dark matter density, rho_{DM} gravitational acceleration are really small. We examined the MOND interpolating function mu in the regime of strong gravity. Gradually varying mu suggested by fits of rotation curves are excluded, whereas the standard form mu(x)= x/(1+x^2)^{1/2} is still compatible with data. In combination with constraints from galactic rotation curves and theoretical considerations on the external field effect, the absence of any significant deviation from inverse square attraction in the solar system makes the range of acceptable interpolating functions significantly narrow. Future radio ranging observations of outer planets with an accuracy of few tenths of a meter could either give positive evidence of dark matter or disprove modifications of gravity.

Fe thin-film growth on Au(100): A self-surfactant effect and its limitations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The combination of low-energy electron diffraction intensity analyses and scanning tunneling microscopy was used to investigate the morphology and atomic structure of thin Fe films grown on Au(100) at 400 K. Deposition of only about 0.2 monolayers (ML) Fe is sufficient to lift the reconstruction of the clean substrate. In the initial growth process (<~1 ML) place exchanges between Fe and Au lead to almost two-dimensional subsurface Fe film growth with one layer of Au covering the entire film. This way, gold acts as a self-surfactant. Yet, there are deviations from two-dimensional growth, with a second Fe layer beginning to grow before the first one is fully completed and some substitutional disorder developing in the film because of incomplete place exchange. The amount of gold floating on the surface only gradually decreases with further increasing film thickness. At about 2 ML the surface undergoes a complete restructuring during which short wormlike chains of atoms form and long-range order is destroyed. Nevertheless, the existence of large terraces of little roughness proves that some surface activity of gold remains. At coverages of several ML, long-range order is reestablished with the Fe film growing in an undistorted bcc arrangement. Although parts of the film are still covered by gold, the surface morphology is not very different from that known for homoepitaxial growth of Fe on Fe(100), i.e., gold has stopped to serve as a self-surfactant.

ASYMMETRY IN THE OUTBURST OF SN 1987A DETECTED USING LIGHT ECHO SPECTROSCOPY  

SciTech Connect

We report direct evidence for asymmetry in the early phases of SN 1987A via optical spectroscopy of five fields of its light echo system. The light echoes allow the first few hundred days of the explosion to be reobserved, with different position angles providing different viewing angles to the supernova. Light echo spectroscopy therefore allows a direct spectroscopic comparison of light originating from different regions of the photosphere during the early phases of SN 1987A. Gemini multi-object spectroscopy of the light echo fields shows fine structure in the H{alpha} line as a smooth function of position angle on the near-circular light echo rings. H{alpha} profiles originating from the northern hemisphere of SN 1987A show an excess in redshifted emission and a blue knee, while southern hemisphere profiles show an excess of blueshifted H{alpha} emission and a red knee. This fine structure is reminiscent of the 'Bochum event' originally observed for SN 1987A, but in an exaggerated form. Maximum deviation from symmetry in the H{alpha} line is observed at position angles 16 Degree-Sign and 186 Degree-Sign , consistent with the major axis of the expanding elongated ejecta. The asymmetry signature observed in the H{alpha} line smoothly diminishes as a function of viewing angle away from the poles of the elongated ejecta. We propose an asymmetric two-sided distribution of {sup 56}Ni most dominant in the southern far quadrant of SN 1987A as the most probable explanation of the observed light echo spectra. This is evidence that the asymmetry of high-velocity {sup 56}Ni in the first few hundred days after explosion is correlated to the geometry of the ejecta some 25 years later.

Comparative study of two- and three-dimensional modeling on arc discharge phenomena inside a thermal plasma torch with hollow electrodes  

SciTech Connect

A comparative study between two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) modeling is carried out on arc discharge phenomena inside a thermal plasma torch with hollow electrodes, in order to evaluate the effects of arc root configuration characterized by either 2D annular or 3D highly localized attachment on the electrode surface. For this purpose, a more precise 3D transient model has been developed by taking account of 3D arc current distribution and arc root rotation. The 3D simulation results apparently reveal that the 3D arc root attachment brings about the inherent 3D and turbulence nature of plasma fields inside the torch. It is also found that the constricted arc column near the vortex chamber plays an important role in heating and acceleration of injected arc gases by concentrating arc currents on the axis of the hollow electrodes. The inherent 3D nature of arc discharge is well preserved inside the cathode region, while these 3D features slowly diminish behind the vortex chamber where the turbulent flow begins to be developed in the anode region. Based on the present simulation results, it is noted that the mixing effects of the strong turbulent flow on the heat and mass transfer are mainly responsible for the gradual relaxation of the 3D structures of plasma fields into the 2D axisymmetric ones that eventually appear in the anode region near the torch exit. From a detailed comparison of the 3D results with the 2D ones, the arc root configuration seems to have a significant effect on the heat transfer to the electrode surfaces interacting with the turbulent plasma flow. That is, in the 2D simulation based on an axisymmetric stationary model, the turbulence phenomena are fairly underestimated and the amount of heat transferred to the cold anode wall is calculated to be smaller than that obtained in the 3D simulation. For the validation of the numerical simulations, calculated plasma temperatures and axial velocities are compared with experimentally measured ones, and the 3D simulation turns out to be more accurate than the 2D simulation as a result of a relatively precise description of the turbulent phenomena inside the torch using a more realistic model of arc root attachment. Finally, it is suggested that the 3D transient formulation is indeed required for describing the real arc discharge phenomena inside the torch, while the 2D stationary approach is sometimes useful for getting practical information about the time-averaged plasma characteristics outside the torch because of its simplicity and rapidness in computation.

Changes in MIS research: status and themes from 1989 to 2000  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In terms of the time frame, this study extends the period (1952??1988) of the Management of Information Systems (MIS) study by Dickson and DeSanctis (D&D) from 1989 to 2000. Thus, the purpose of this study is the same as that of the D&D's study, that is, to survey the literature in the area of MIS in order to identify past research themes and trends and point to future research directions. An integral part of this study is to compare the current findings with those of D&D's study, thereby highlighting research patterns or trends in the MIS area. The evidence uncovered by this study indicates that the MIS activities were dominated by descriptive, prescriptive and hermeneutic studies in the late 1980s and early 1990s, whereas in recent years there has been a great increase in empirical research. The major findings may be summarised as follows: (1) research themes such as administration of computer centres, information systems (IS) control, hardware resource management, IS security and data resource management have gradually diminished; (2) research themes, including IS planning, IS evaluation and the successful transfer of IS technology into the organisation, have matured during recent years; (3) there have been an increasing number of empirical studies in 1990s in the area of MIS with an emphasis on themes such as software resource management, IS evaluation, information technology (IT) strategic planning and general IS/IT management and (4) in addition to the two main journals, MIS Quarterly and Communications of the ACM, Information Systems Research and Journal of Management Information Systems play a significant role in the publication of the MIS empirical research results. Overall, there was a conspicuous change in the pattern of research themes and trends from the period (1952??1988) covered by the D&D's study to the period (1989??2000) under this study. This change spurred by new technologies such as intranet and internet in hardware and software and enterprise resources planning (ERP), knowledge management, supply-chain management in software warrants a revision of Barki et al.'s classification scheme for research in the MIS area.

Building of multilevel stakeholder consensus in radioactive waste repository siting  

SciTech Connect

This report considers the problem of multilevel consensus building for siting and construction of shared multinational/regional repositories for radioactive waste (RW) deep disposal. In the siting of a multinational repository there appears an essential innovative component of stakeholder consensus building, namely: to reach consent - political, social, economic, ecological - among international partners, in addition to solving the whole set of intra-national consensus building items. An entire partnering country is considered as a higher-level stakeholder - the national stakeholder, represented by the national government, being faced to simultaneous seeking an upward (international) and a downward (intra-national) consensus in a psychologically stressed environment, possibly being characterized by diverse political, economic and social interests. The following theses as a possible interdisciplinary approach towards building of shared understanding and stakeholder consensus on the international scale of RW disposal are forwarded and developed: a) building of international stakeholder consensus would be promoted by activating and diversifying on the international scale multilateral interactions between intra- and international stakeholders, including web-based networks of the RW disposal site investigations and decision-making, as well as networks for international cooperation among government authorities in nuclear safety, b) gradual progress in intergovernmental consensus and reaching multilateral agreements on shared deep repositories will be the result of democratic dialogue, via observing the whole set of various interests and common resolving of emerged controversies by using advanced synergetic approaches of conflict resolution, c) cross-cultural thinking and world perception, mental flexibility, creativity and knowledge are considered as basic prerogatives for gaining a higher level of mutual understanding and consensus for seeking further consensus, for advancing the preparedness to act together, and ultimately - for achieving desired shared goals. It is proposed that self-organized social learning will make it possible to promote adequate perception of risk and prevent, by diminishing uncertainties and unknown factors, social amplification of an imagined risk, as well as to increase the trust level and facilitate more adequate equity perception. The proposed approach to the multilevel stakeholder consensus building on international scale is extrapolated to the present-day activities of siting of such near-surface RW disposal facilities which supposedly could have non-negligible trans-boundary impact. A multilevel stakeholder interaction process is considered for the case of resolving of emerged problems in site selection for the planned near-surface RW repository in vicinity of the Lithuanian-Latvian border foreseen for disposal of short lived low- and intermediate level waste arising from the decommissioning of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant.

Empirical electronic polarizabilities in oxides, hydroxides, oxyfluorides, and oxychlorides  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An extensive set of infinite-wavelength refractive indices recently derived from a single-oscillator Sellmeier equation [J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data 31, 931 (2002)] was used to obtain mean total polarizabilities for 340 oxides, 3 hydroxides, 46 oxyhydroxides, 10 oxyfluorides, 8 oxychlorides, 80 hydrates, and 51 fluorides. These data, in conjunction with the polarizability additivity rule and a least-squares procedure, were used to obtain electronic polarizabilities for 79 cations, H2O, and 4 anions (F?,Cl?,OH?,O2?). Using literature values for free-cation polarizabilities, neglecting cation coordination, and allowing the variation of anion polarizability according to log??=log??o?No?Van2?3 where ??=anion polarizability, ??o=empirical free-anion polarizability, Van=anion molar volume and No=a constant, the refinement gives agreement (5%) in only 92 out of 381 total mean polarizabilities of 252 compounds. Varying cation polarizabilities, but still neglecting dependencies on cation coordination numbers (CN), allowed us to reproduce total polarizability values to within 5% for 611 out of 650 data on 487 oxides, hydrates, oxyfluorides, and oxychlorides. In the next stage we modified a light-scattering (LS) model by Jemmer et al. [J. Phys. Chem. A 102, 8377 (1998)] to give the expression ?(CN,R)=[a1+a2CNcae?a3R]?1, where CNca=the number of nearest-neighbor ions (cation-anion interactions); R=cation-anion interatomic distance; and a1, a2, and a3 are constants. This expression provides for a smooth decrease in polarizability at low CNs to the free-cation value at infinite CNs (R=?). Fitting polarizability values for Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Pb, Y, and La to this relationship provided a fit to within 5% of 601 out of 650 data. The final step in the refinement process, which used 534 total polarizabilities from 387 compounds, excluded compounds with (1) sterically strained (SS) structures, (2) corner-shared octahedral (CSO) network and chain structures such as perovskites, tungsten bronzes, and titanite-related structures, and (3) piezoelectric (PZ) and/or pyroelectric (PY) structures with abnormally high deviations of observed from total calculated polarizabilities. This final refinement, which provides 79 cation polarizabilities with values for Li, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Pb, B, Al, Ga, Sc, Y, Lu?La, Ge, and Ti in varying CNs, shows a standard deviation of 0.150 and no discrepancies >4%. Systematic comparisons of differences (?Z*) of Born effective charges (Z*) from formal valence values with deviations of certain ions in ?-r3 plots and with differences between empirical and free-ion ?s indicate good correlations with metal d-oxygen p-hybridization and covalence. The level of differences increases in the order alkali ions ? alkaline earth ions ? transition metal ions such as Ni2+,Mn2+,Cd2+,Pb2+,Fe3+,andCr3+?M ions found in AMO3 perovskites where M=Ti4+,Zr4+,Nb5+,andTa5+. We ascribe the differences between our empirical polarizabilities and the free-ion values to charge transfer, effectively increasing cation polarizabilities and decreasing anion polarizabilities. Systematic discrepancies are associated with compounds having SS, CSO, and PZ/PY structures. Underbonded cations such as Mg in Mg3Al2Si3O12 (garnet) lead to augmented cation polarizabilities that result in increased observed total calculated polarizabilities (up to 6%). Conversely, overbonded cations in the KClO4 structure lead to diminished cation polarizabilities and decreased observed total calculated polarizabilities. Deviations, ?, (up to 10%) of observed from total calculated polarizabilities are found in perovskite compounds such as SrTiO3. The octahedral corner-sharing and Mn+-O2?-Mn+ one-dimensional chains lead to enhanced covalency accompanying the Mnd?O2p hybridization that, in turn, leads to augmented total polarizabilities and refractive indices. Both (+) and (?) deviations from additivity in piezoelectric (PZ) and/or pyroelectric (PY) structures are caused by (1) underbonded cations in SS and enhanced Mnd?O

Sexual Functioning Among Endometrial Cancer Patients Treated With Adjuvant High-Dose-Rate Intra-Vaginal Radiation Therapy  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: We used the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) to investigate the prevalence of sexual dysfunction (SD) and factors associated with diminished sexual functioning in early stage endometrial cancer (EC) patients treated with simple hysterectomy and adjuvant brachytherapy. Methods and Materials: A cohort of 104 patients followed in a radiation oncology clinic completed questionnaires to quantify current levels of sexual functioning. The time interval between hysterectomy and questionnaire completion ranged from <6 months to >5 years. Multivariate regression was performed using the FSFI as a continuous variable (score range, 1.2-35.4). SD was defined as an FSFI score of <26, based on the published validation study. Results: SD was reported by 81% of respondents. The mean ({+-} standard deviation) domain scores in order of highest-to-lowest functioning were: satisfaction, 2.9 ({+-}2.0); orgasm, 2.5 ({+-}2.4); desire, 2.4 ({+-}1.3); arousal, 2.2 ({+-}2.0); dryness, 2.1 ({+-}2.1); and pain, 1.9 ({+-}2.3). Compared to the index population in which the FSFI cut-score was validated (healthy women ages 18-74), all scores were low. Compared to published scores of a postmenopausal population, scores were not statistically different. Multivariate analysis isolated factors associated with lower FSFI scores, including having laparotomy as opposed to minimally invasive surgery (effect size, -7.1 points; 95% CI, -11.2 to -3.1; P<.001), lack of vaginal lubricant use (effect size, -4.4 points; 95% CI, -8.7 to -0.2, P=.040), and short time interval (<6 months) from hysterectomy to questionnaire completion (effect size, -4.6 points; 95% CI, -9.3-0.2; P=.059). Conclusions: The rate of SD, as defined by an FSFI score <26, was prevalent. The postmenopausal status of EC patients alone is a known risk factor for SD. Additional factors associated with poor sexual functioning following treatment for EC included receipt of laparotomy and lack of vaginal lubricant use.

Natural Gas Weekly Update  

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

24, 2001 24, 2001 Mild temperatures and moderate demand helped prices to decline gradually last week as markets returned to relatively normal operation. (See Temperature Map) (See Deviation from Normal Temperatures Map) At the Henry Hub, the spot market price for natural gas ended the week at $2.04 per million Btu, down 37 cents per million Btu from the previous Friday. On the futures market, the near-month (October) NYMEX contract settled on Friday at $2.103 per million Btu - off close to 60 cents from the previous Friday. The spot price for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil fell steadily from $28.85 per barrel ($4.974 per million Btu) on Monday to $ 25.50 or $4.40 per million Btu on Friday. Prices: Spot prices at many major market locations took a downward turn last week. Prices at the Henry Hub closed on Monday at $2.35 per million Btu, down 6 cents per million Btu from the previous Friday, and fell between 3 and 17 cents each day that followed. On Friday, prices dropped to $2.04 per million Btu, the lowest level since November 1999. Similarly, prices at many locations throughout the country fell throughout the week. At the New York and Chicago citygates, prices fell from $2.69 and $2.39 per million Btu to $2.30 and $2.04, respectively. Prices in the west at the Northern California (PG&E) and Southern California (SoCal) hubs climbed on Tuesday before falling to $1.67 and $1.79 on Friday. In the Rockies, prices fell below the $1 mark for the first time since 1998 as prices at some locations in Wyoming ranged between $0.83 and $1.10 on Friday. These price drops have occurred in part because industrial demand has continued to soften in the wake of the events of September 11, and in part because temperatures remain mild throughout much of the country.

Advanced simulation of electron heat transport in fusion plasmas  

SciTech Connect

Electron transport in burning plasmas is more important since fusion products first heat electrons. First-principles simulations of electron turbulence are much more challenging due to the multi-scale dynamics of the electron turbulence, and have been made possible by close collaborations between plasma physicists and computational scientists. The GTC simulations of collisionless trapped electron mode (CTEM) turbulence show that the electron heat transport exhibits a gradual transition from Bohm to gyroBohm scaling when the device size is increased. The deviation from the gyroBohm scaling can be induced by large turbulence eddies, turbulence spreading, and non-diffusive transport processes. Analysis of radial correlation function shows that CTEM turbulence eddies are predominantly microscopic but with a significant tail in the mesoscale. A comprehensive analysis of kinetic and fluid time scales shows that zonal flow shearing is the dominant decorrelation mechanism. The mesoscale eddies result from a dynamical process of linear streamers breaking by zonal flows and merging of microscopic eddies. The radial profile of the electron heat conductivity only follows the profile of fluctuation intensity on a global scale, whereas the ion transport tracks more sensitively the local fluctuation intensity. This suggests the existence of a nondiffusive component in the electron heat flux, which arises from the ballistic radial E x B drift of trapped electrons due to a combination of the presence of mesoscale eddies and the weak de-tuning of the toroidal precessional resonance that drives the CTEM instability. On the other hand, the ion radial excursion is not affected by the mesoscale eddies due to a parallel decorrelation, which is not operational for the trapped electrons because of a bounce averaging process associated with the electron fast motion along magnetic field lines. The presence of the nondiffusive component raises question on the applicability of the usual quasilinear theory for the CTEM electron transport. This is in contrast to the good agreement between the quasilinear transport theory and simulation results of the electron heat transport in electron temperature gradient (ETG) turbulence, which is regulated by a wave-particle decorrelation. Therefore, the transport in the CTEM turbulence is a fluid-like eddy mixing process even though the linear CTEM instability is driven by a kinetic resonance. In contrast, a kinetic process dominates the transport in the ETG turbulence, which is characterized by macroscopic streamers.

Erice: its past and present roles  

SciTech Connect

In the depths of the cold war there were few places where it was possible, let alone acceptable, to discuss global problems and their solution. Erice provided such a venue. Prof. Zichichi built it by inviting friends of international statue to visit Erice to discuss fundamental problems in science, technology, and society. Gradually the discussions were broadened to the more sensitive issues of global war and its consequences, which ranged from strategic forces and their stability to missile defenses and their impacts. Erice was one of the few places that these problems and their possible solutions could be discussed in a dispassionate and productive manner. Much of the reason these discussions remained objective and productive was Prof. Zichichi's 'gentle' prodding of participants towards a useful solution that all could accept. All was not deadly serious. I often accompanied Dr. Teller to the meetings, which he enjoyed enormously because they recalled the free-wheeling discussions he participated in when quantum physics was in its infancy. It was also pleasant to see him interact with Prof. Lee, who still gave Dr. Teller the deference due his old professor, and Dr. Garwin, who had worked with Dr. Teller in Los Alamos. By the end of the cold war Erice was recognized as a valuable site for such discussions. Perhaps for that reason, when the transfer of power in the Soviet Union evolved into an attempted coup, President Yeltsin sent a large contingent of scientists in his own plane to participate in the Erice seminar. It soon appeared that this contingent was not chosen randomly, but might contain many of the scientists who knew their missile launch codes. Despite their senior status, they quickly proved themselves to be competent scientists and enthusiastic participants. A by product to that interaction developed the following year when the Russian economy faltered and its science needed external support lest nuclear scientists leave Russia. U.S. scientific contingents formed by State and Commerce for extended fact finding tours to Russia were hosted by many the same people who had come to Erice during the attempted coup. We found that they were the heads of critical design bureaus, but they freely discussed proposed military and civil projects. The teams negotiated projects for cooperation in science and technology that could have been of great benefit to both countries had they been accepted by U.S. administrations. By that time there were a number of venues for discussion and a large number of groups visiting Russia, so one might think the possibility for contributions by Erice might be diminished. But most of the groups that visited Russia left little behind, particularly in the critical area of energy. That left Erice an important role for the interchange of information on the development of an energy infrastructure that respected the environment. In those discussions western scientists collaborated with Russian scientists like Academicians Velikhov and Fortov, who had often been on opposite the side of earlier debates, in developing the architecture of Russia's energy infrastructure. Discussions have turned cold again. One can say that the chill is due to geopolitical factors or military actions, but much appears to be due to lack of communication. Discussions of strategic missiles revive the arguments of the 1960s, and discussions of missile defense ignore the insights developed in Erice in the 1980s and 1990s. Discussion has sunk to levels not seen since the depths of the cold war. In the areas of science, energy, and military much could be gained by resuming those earlier dialogues. While there are now other venues for holding such discussions, none has the scope and record Erice achieved under Prof. Zichichi in its prime. It may be time for Erice to resume the unique service it performed in previous decades. It could be important for it to do so.

Effect of a weak polar misalignment of the magnetic field on the stabilization of the Hadley flow  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We study the stability of an infinite differentially heated liquid metal layer bounded by two horizontal walls and submitted to an external magnetic field subjected to a slight polar deviation with respect to the initially selected direction. The effects of the weak deviation on the stability characteristics of the two-dimensional stationary and three-dimensional oscillatory instabilities which can develop in such a liquid layer are investigated. The flow exhibits some interesting and unexpected stability characteristics. The effect of the deviation is either stabilizing or destabilizing depending essentially on the initially selected magnetic field orientation: longitudinal, transverse or vertical. In general, when the deviation angle increases the critical values of the Grashof number, the wave numbers and the frequency deviate from the asymptotic behaviours observed for large values of the Hartmann number, Ha > 20 , in the case without deviation. New features and behaviours are found for some orientations of the magnetic field.

Reexamination of tests of the Wannier threshold law for two-electron escape  

SciTech Connect

Recent experimental studies of the spin dependence in electron-impact ionization of atomic hydrogen revealed the presence of deviations from the predictions of the conventional Wannier threshold theory of two-electron escape. We provide some insight into the possible origin of these deviations and reexamine the results of previous work that had claimed consistency with the Wannier theory but, with added statistical analysis, also seem to show deviations.

Defining Electron Backscatter Diffraction Resolution  

SciTech Connect

Automated electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) mapping systems have existed for more than 10 years [1,2], and due to their versatility in characterizing multiple aspects of microstructure, they have become an important tool in microscale crystallographic studies. Their increasingly widespread use however raises questions about their accuracy in both determining crystallographic orientations, as well as ensuring that the orientation information is spatially correct. The issue of orientation accuracy (as defined by angular resolution) has been addressed previously [3-5]. While the resolution of EBSD systems is typically quoted to be on the order of 1{sup o}, it has been shown that by increasing the pattern quality via acquisition parameter adjustment, the angular resolution can be improved to sub-degree levels. Ultimately, the resolution is dependent on how it is identified. In some cases it can be identified as the orientation relative to a known absolute, in others as the misorientation between nearest neighbor points in a scan. Naturally, the resulting values can be significantly different. Therefore, a consistent and universal definition of resolution that can be applied to characterize any EBSD system is necessary, and is the focus of the current study. In this work, a Phillips (FEI) XL-40 FEGSEM coupled to a TexSEM Laboratories OIM system was used. The pattern capturing hardware consisted of both a 512 by 512 pixel SIT CCD camera and a 1300 by 1030 pixel Peltier cooled CCD camera. Automated scans of various sizes, each consisting of 2500 points, were performed on a commercial-grade single crystal silicon wafer used for angular resolution measurements. To adequately quantify angular resolution for all possible EBSD applications we define two angular values. The first is {omega}{sub center}, the mean of the misorientation angle distribution between all scan points and the scan point coincident to the calibration source (typically the scan center). The {omega}{sub center} value is used to describe the overall system resolution, as it effectively quantifies the deviation of all orientations in the scan relative to the diffraction pattern least affected by distortions. The second is {omega}{sub max}, the largest misorientation angle possible between any pair of points in the dataset, and describes the worst possible case. Fig. 1 shows the effects of scan size and captured pattern resolution (bin size) on both angular values, illustrating that smaller scan and bin sizes have the effect of increasing angular resolution. However, it can be observed that the benefits of utilizing smaller bin sizes (and consequently slower data collection) diminish with scan size. Fig. 2 shows the effect of the number of pixels used in the Hough transform (defined as the ratio of pixels used to maximum possible pixels) on the angular values. It can be seen that the best angular resolutions are achieved at a pixel ratio of 0.80, again illustrating that the use of higher resolutions is not always beneficial. As evidenced by the results, the use of {omega}{sub center} and {omega}{sub max} not only permits the characterization of the angular resolution of an EBSD system, but they allow for a more efficient utilization of the system by identifying appropriate settings depending on the desired angular resolution [6].

Addressing an Uncertain Future Using Scenario Analysis  

SciTech Connect

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has had a longstanding goal of introducing uncertainty into the analysis it routinely conducts in compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and for strategic management purposes. The need to introduce some treatment of uncertainty arises both because it would be good general management practice, and because intuitively many of the technologies under development by EERE have a considerable advantage in an uncertain world. For example, an expected kWh output from a wind generator in a future year, which is not exposed to volatile and unpredictable fuel prices, should be truly worth more than an equivalent kWh from an alternative fossil fuel fired technology. Indeed, analysts have attempted to measure this value by comparing the prices observed in fixed-price natural gas contracts compared to ones in which buyers are exposed to market prices (see Bolinger, Wiser, and Golove and (2004)). In addition to the routine reasons for exploring uncertainty given above, the history of energy markets appears to have exhibited infrequent, but troubling, regime shifts, i.e., historic turning points at which the center of gravity or fundamental nature of the system appears to have abruptly shifted. Figure 1 below shows an estimate of how the history of natural gas fired generating costs has evolved over the last three decades. The costs shown incorporate both the well-head gas price and an estimate of how improving generation technology has gradually tended to lower costs. The purpose of this paper is to explore scenario analysis as a method for introducing uncertainty into EERE's forecasting in a manner consistent with the preceding observation. The two questions are how could it be done, and what is its academic basis, if any. Despite the interest in uncertainty methods, applying them poses some major hurdles because of the heavy reliance of EERE on forecasting tools that are deterministic in nature, such as the Energy Information Administration's (EIA's) National Energy Modeling System (NEMS). NEMS is the source of the influential Annual Energy Outlook whose business-as-usual (BAU) case, the Reference Case, forms the baseline for most of the U.S. energy policy discussion. NEMS is an optimizing model because: 1. it iterates to an equilibrium among modules representing the supply, demand, and energy conversion subsectors; and 2. several subsectoral models are individually solved using linear programs (LP). Consequently, it is deeply rooted in the recent past and any effort to simulate the consequences of a major regime shift as depicted in Figure 1 must come by applying an exogenously specified scenario. And, more generally, simulating futures that lie outside of our recent historic experience, even if they do not include regime switches suggest some form of scenario approach. At the same time, the statistical validity of scenarios that deviate significantly outside the ranges of historic inputs should be questioned.

Relic gravitational waves and the generalized second law  

SciTech Connect

The generalized second law of gravitational thermodynamics is applied to the present era of accelerated expansion of the Universe. In spite of the fact that the entropy of matter and relic gravitational waves inside the event horizon diminish, the mentioned law is fulfilled provided that the expression for the entropy density of the gravitational waves satisfies a certain condition.

Influence of discharge gap on the discharge stability in a short vacuum arc ion source  

SciTech Connect

The influence of the discharge gap between cathode and anode on the discharge stability in a short vacuum arc (SVA) ion source is presented in this paper. Planar cathode and cylindrical hollow anode made of titanium are investigated. There is a great need in present accelerator injection research for SVA source to produce the small deviation of the ion current beam. Current research shows that increasing the short discharge gap can reduce the level of ion current deviation and ion charge deviation from 29% and 31% to 15% and 17%, respectively. A microplasma plume generation mechanism in SVA and scanning electron microscopic results can be used to explain this interesting phenomenon.

Effect of Size Polydispersity on Melting of Charged Colloidal Systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We introduce simple prescriptions of the Yukawa potential to describe the effect of size polydispersity and macroion shielding effect in charged colloidal systems. The solid-liquid phase boundaries were presented with the Lindemann criterion based on molecular dynamics simulations. Compared with the Robbins-Kremer-Grest simulation results, a deviation of melting line is observed at small $\\lambda$, which means large macroion screening length. This deviation of phase boundary is qualitatively consistent with the simulation result of the nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann equation with full many-body interactions. It is found that this deviation of the solid-liquid phase behaviour is sensitive to the screening parameter.

Option pricing and foreign investment under political risk  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The paper analyses asset prices in a context of uncertainty over future government policy. As current policy is maintained, perceived risk abates thus leading to a gradual appreciation of asset prices and a gradual decrease in their conditional variance. Option values computed under this process have time series and the term structure of conditional volatility, which, in general, are downward sloping. In price series without a policy reversal, implied volatility from option prices will exceed actual volatility, with this wedge progressively disappearing. This may be viewed as the volatility analogue of the peso premium for assets subject to large, infrequent price drops.

Every time step along that shot will fulfill the requirements of the normalized standard deviation test. To prevent that from occurring, it is necessary to implement a relative test in addition to an absolute one. * During an iteration of the procedure, the relative test compares the recently-calculated standard deviation to a deviation calculated 40 ms earlier. * If the standard deviation has dropped by 50% from that previous value then the second test has been fulfilled. The procedure retains this fulfilled status for 60 ms.
