Windy Gap Firming Project Windy Gap Firming Project Skip Navigation Links Transmission Functions Infrastructure projects Interconnection OASIS OATT Windy Gap Firming Project, Final Environmental Impact Statement, DOE/EIS-0370 (cooperating agency) Western's proposed action is to relocate approximately 3.8 miles of the existing Estes to Lyons 115-kilovolt transmission line, if the Chimney Hollow Reservoir alternative is constructed. The line would be moved outside the area proposed for the reservoir, and Western would ensure the new location would allow the agency to continue to operate and maintain it. Section 2.4.1.4 of the Final Environmental Impact Statement, Volume 1 provides more information on the transmission line relocation proposal. The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation is the Lead Agency for the National Environmental Policy Act Review. Cooperating agencies are Western, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Grand County, Colo.

Evidence of an Energy-Management Gap in U.S. manufacturing: Spillovers from firm management practices to energy efficiency  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this paper we merge a well-cited survey of firm management practices into confidential plant level U.S. Census manufacturing data to examine whether generic, i.e. non-energy specific, firm management practices, spillover to enhance energy efficiency in the United States. For U.S. manufacturing plants we find this relationship to be more nuanced than prior research on UK plants. Most management techniques are shown to have beneficial spillovers to energy efficiency, but an emphasis on generic targets, conditional on other management practices, results in spillovers that increase energy intensity. Our specification controls for industry specific effects at a detailed 6-digit NAICS level and finds the relationship between management and energy use to be strongest for firms in energy intensive industries. We interpret the empirical result that generic management practices do not necessarily spillover to improved energy performance as evidence of an energy management gap.

Water development for hydroelectric in southeastern Anatolia project (GAP) in Turkey  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Southeastern Anatolia Project (GAP) region in Turkey is rich in water for irrigation and hydroelectric power. The Euphrates and Tigris rivers represent over 28% of the nations water supply by rivers, and the economically irrigable areas in the region make up 20% of those for the entry country. On the other hand, 85% of the total hydro capacity in operation has been developed by DSI, corresponding to 9931MW (49 hydro plants) and 35,795GWh/year respectively. The largest and most comprehensive regional development project ever implemented by DSI in Turkey is The Southeast Anatolian (GAP) Project, which is located in the region of Southeast Anatolia on the Euprates and Tigris rivers and their tributaries, which originate in Turkey. The energy potential of the Tigris and Euphrates is estimated as 12,000GWh and 35,000GWh, respectively. These two rivers constitute 10% and 30% of the total hydroelectric energy potential. The GAP region will be an important electric power producer with 1000MW installed capacity from the Karakaya dam, 2400MW installed capacity from the Atatrk dam and 1360MW installed capacity from the Keban dam. The GAP region has a 22% share of the countrys total hydroelectric potential, with plans for 22 dams and 19 hydroelectric power plants. Once completed, 27 billionkWh of electricity will be generated annually.

Lift-and-Project Integrality Gaps for the Traveling Salesperson Problem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the lift-and-project procedures of Lov{\\'a}sz-Schrijver and Sherali-Adams applied to the standard linear programming relaxation of the traveling salesperson problem with triangle inequality. For the asymmetric TSP tour problem, Charikar, Goemans, and Karloff (FOCS 2004) proved that the integrality gap of the standard relaxation is at least 2. We prove that after one round of the Lov{\\'a}sz-Schrijver or Sherali-Adams procedures, the integrality gap of the asymmetric TSP tour problem is at least 3/2, with a small caveat on which version of the standard relaxation is used. For the symmetric TSP tour problem, the integrality gap of the standard relaxation is known to be at least 4/3, and Cheung (SIOPT 2005) proved that it remains at least 4/3 after $o(n)$ rounds of the Lov{\\'a}sz-Schrijver procedure, where $n$ is the number of nodes. For the symmetric TSP path problem, the integrality gap of the standard relaxation is known to be at least 3/2, and we prove that it remains at least 3/2 after $o(n)$ rounds...

Risk management in a globalised cosmetic firm  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The need of control and optimise the supply chain is now crucial for the firm operating in the actual economic environment. Some aspects such as globalisation, heavy dependence on transportation, communication infrastructures and lean manufacturing have led an increase in the vulnerability of supply networks. Owing to a large number of interrelated processes and products, disruptions caused by these vulnerabilities propagate rapidly. Firms, however, can partially control the robustness and resilience of their supply networks through strategic and tactical decisions. Therefore, a decision-support tool that assists managers to evaluate the risk exposure of their supply networks can considerably increase the robustness/resilience of these networks. In this paper, focusing the attention on a cosmetic sector where the uncertainty is even more high, it is shown how real option and risk analysis can help managers to manage new projects mitigating risk factors.

Capital budgeting methods, management control systems and the R&D intensity of the firm  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper investigates the effect of the Research and Development (R&D) intensity of the firm on the use of management control systems, capital budgeting methods and the methods to determine the cost of capital. Based on earlier literature, we develop several hypotheses that we test empirically, using survey data of the 101 Finnish firms operating in the capital area. The results indicate that the use of management control systems such as control and bonus systems, budgeting and strategic alliances increases with the degree of the R&D intensity of the firm. The results also indicate that high-R&D-intensity firms use formal capital budgeting methods within large and strategic projects. Finally, our results show that the use of sophisticated capital budgeting methods such as Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) methods increases with the R&D intensity of the firm. Our results remain materially the same after controlling for several firm characteristics.

Proactive cooperation with strangers: Enhancing complexity of the ICT firms' alliance portfolio and their innovativeness  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study explores links among firms' cooperation strategy, the complexity of their alliance portfolio, and their innovativeness in the context of the ICT industry in emerging market. Alliance portfolio formation has been increasingly recognized as a major element influencing firms' performance as well as innovativeness. However, little attention has been focused thus far on methods of alliance portfolio creation and its impact on the complexity of alliance portfolio or firms' innovativeness. This study aims to fill this gap by analyzing the impact of cooperation forming (both market-focused strategy and relationship-focused strategy) as well as managers' proactiveness and trust on the complexity of alliance portfolio and, consequently, on firms' innovativeness. The empirical models are examined using data collected in 146 firms (SME) from the ICT industry and 4006 ties in their alliance portfolios. The results suggest that a proactive, market-focused cooperation strategy (proactively searching for and selecting strangers from the market as potential partners) positively affects the complexity of alliance portfolio (specifically: functional, geographic, governance complexity, as well as a number of ties) and might enhance firms' innovativeness. However, relying on friends, acquaintances, and their recommendations in partnership forming might result in decreasing the alliance portfolio complexity. Moreover, managers' trust in existing partners seems not to be of crucial importance when creating diverse and complex alliance portfolios. In other words, existing ties that bind can also blind and might limit the possibility of creating of numerous, diverse partnerships and, consequently, reduce firms' innovativeness.

Firm leverage decisions: Does industry matter?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We use a standard capital structure mode l to investigate the firm leverage decisions of 1620 companies listed in the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) across a span of 13 years (20002012), dividing the sample into mining and other industries (non-mining). We also test for significant differences in leverage decisions between these two groups by applying a dummy variable approach. Our findings show that fundamental differences exist between mining and non-mining companies when making leverage decisions. We find evidence that mining firms are more sensitive to profitability and asset tangibility where neither profitability nor asset tangibility has significant association for non-mining firms. Overall results suggest that industry-type does matter for firms making leverage decisions.

This study contrasts the impacts of institutions on entrepreneurial high technology firms in three transitional economies that share many institutional similarities but have taken different paths to economic reform: China, Poland and Russia. The study explores the impact of institutions on core aspects of the firm including strategic orientation, top management dynamics and firm strategy. We argue that different institutional environments that result from different development paths produce different strategic mindsets and generate different strategic actions. The findings have significant implications for institutional effects on transitional economies, which are discussed in light of future research on entrepreneurial firms.

Emplacement Gantry Gap Analysis Study  

SciTech Connect

To date, the project has established important to safety (ITS) performance requirements for structures, systems, and components (SSCs) based on the identification and categorization of event sequences that may result in a radiological release. These performance requirements are defined within the ''Nuclear Safety Design Bases for License Application'' (NSDB) (BSC 2005 [DIRS 171512], Table A-11). Further, SSCs credited with performing safety functions are classified as ITS. In turn, assurance that these SSCs will perform as required is sought through the use of consensus codes and standards. This gap analysis is based on the design completed for license application only. Accordingly, identification of ITS SSCs beyond those defined within the NSDB are based on designs that may be subject to further development during detail design. Furthermore, several design alternatives may still be under consideration to satisfy certain safety functions, and final selection will not be determined until further design development has occurred. Therefore, for completeness, alternative designs currently under consideration will be discussed throughout this study. This gap analysis will evaluate each code and standard identified within the ''Emplacement Gantry ITS Standards Identification Study'' (BSC 2005 [DIRS 173586]) to ensure each ITS performance requirement is fully satisfied. When a performance requirement is not fully satisfied, a gap is highlighted. This study will identify requirements to supplement or augment the code or standard to meet performance requirements. Further, this gap analysis will identify nonstandard areas of the design that will be subject to a design development plan. Nonstandard components and nonstandard design configurations are defined as areas of the design that do not follow standard industry practices or codes and standards. Whereby, assurance that an SSC will perform as required may not be readily sought though the use of consensus standards. This gap analysis is prepared by the Emplacement and Retrieval (E&R) project team and is intended for the sole use of the Engineering department in work regarding the emplacement gantry. Yucca Mountain Project personnel from the E&R project team should be consulted before use of this gap analysis for purposes other than those stated herein or by individuals other than authorized by the Engineering department.

However, even a thorough understanding of the Standard Model is not the end of the story but the beginning. By exploring the structure and details of the Standard Model we encounter new questions. Why do the most fundamental particles have the particular masses we observe? Why aren't they all symmetric? How is the mass of a particle related to the masses of its constituents? Is there any other way of organizing the Standard Model? The activities in this project will elucidate but not answer our questions. The Standard Model tells us how particles behave but not necessarily why they do so. The conversation is only beginning. . . .

International technology transfer and its impact on innovation enhancement for firms based in Sri Lanka  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents research findings from industrial firms based in Sri Lanka who need to acquire new technologies from the external environment in order to compete and upgrade their innovation capabilities. We analyse some of the key challenges faced by the recipients of knowledge in international technology transfer projects from the perspective of technology receiver firms based in a developing country. Through this technology transfer process the receiver firms attempt to utilise knowledge, from the technology senders based in advanced countries, in order to help them upgrade their innovation capabilities. This upgrading process involves overcoming some challenges related to training provision, human resources, language barriers, complexity of transfer process, and recipient's lack of absorptive capacity. We present a number of important managerial implications, especially relevant for technology receivers in developing countries.

Towards a new form of governance for inter-firm cooperation? Lessons from the Renault-Nissan Alliance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is representative of forthcoming challenges of inter-firm cooperation. Based on an in-depth case study on this case, the paper expands the evolutionary perspective to examine the processes through which the firms jointly investigate their potential partners to build business opportunities. This exploratory process can either come to a standstill or end up in a merger or in other form of alliance. In order to learn potential common projects and the possible form of governance, firms need to manage simultaneously the coordination and the cohesion mechanisms. The paper also discusses the relevance of a special form of governance to provide firms with an appropriate legal framework.

Fiber optic gap gauge  

SciTech Connect

A lightweight, small size, high sensitivity gauge for indirectly measuring displacement or absolute gap width by measuring axial strain in an orthogonal direction to the displacement/gap width. The gap gauge includes a preferably titanium base having a central tension bar with springs connecting opposite ends of the tension bar to a pair of end connector bars, and an elongated bow spring connected to the end connector bars with a middle section bowed away from the base to define a gap. The bow spring is capable of producing an axial strain in the base proportional to a displacement of the middle section in a direction orthogonal to the base. And a strain sensor, such as a Fabry-Perot interferometer strain sensor, is connected to measure the axial strain in the base, so that the displacement of the middle section may be indirectly determined from the measurement of the axial strain in the base.

Exploring firm emergence: initially conditioned or actively created?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Previous research has established a connection between initial conditions and new firm performance. Research on the gestation activities of nascent entrepreneurs, on the other hand, has demonstrated the potential importance of active behaviours on firm emergence. Since no research has addressed the effects of these two constructs on firm emergence in an empirical fashion, we frame this paper as an exploratory study designed to answer the following research question: to what extent do initial conditions and/or active behaviours explain firm emergence? We use a French national business plan competition to identify nascent firms. As a result, it seems that only active behaviours make a statistically significant impact on firm emergence, while initial conditions do not. Therefore, our preliminary finding is that a firm emerges merely through the active behaviours of entrepreneurs rather than as an outcome of initial conditions.

Uncertainties in Gapped Graphene  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Motivated by graphene-based quantum computer we examine the time-dependence of the position-momentum and position-velocity uncertainties in the monolayer gapped graphene. The effect of the energy gap to the uncertainties is shown to appear via the Compton-like wavelength $\\lambda_c$. The uncertainties in the graphene are mainly contributed by two phenomena, spreading and zitterbewegung. While the former determines the uncertainties in the long-range of time, the latter gives the highly oscillation to the uncertainties in the short-range of time. The uncertainties in the graphene are compared with the corresponding values for the usual free Hamiltonian $\\hat{H}_{free} = (p_1^2 + p_2^2) / 2 M$. It is shown that the uncertainties can be under control within the quantum mechanical law if one can choose the gap parameter $\\lambda_c$ freely.

FINAL REPORT ON GDE GAP CELL  

SciTech Connect

A project has been undertaken to develop an electrochemical cell and support equipment for evaluation of a gas diffusion electrode-based, narrow-electrolyte-gap anode for SO{sub 2} oxidation in the hydrogen production cycle of the hybrid sulfur (HyS) process. The project supported the HyS development program at the Savannah River National Lab (SRNL). The benefits of using a gas diffusion electrode in conjunction with the narrow anolyte gap are being determined through electrochemical polarization testing under a variety conditions, and by comparison to results produced by SRNL and others using anode technologies that have no anolyte gap. These test results indicate that the NGA cell has low resistance suitable for use in the HyS electrolyzer, exhibits good efficiency at high current densities compared to the direct feed HyS electrolyzer, and indicates robust performance in extended testing over 65 hours. Seepage episodes were mostly caused by port clogging, which can be mitigated in future designs through minor modifications to the hardware. Significant reductions in sulfur crossover have not yet been demonstrated in the NGA configuration compared to in-house direct feed testing, but corroborative sulfur layer analysis is as yet incomplete. Further testing in a single-pass anolyte configuration is recommended for complete evaluation of steady-state electrochemical efficiency and SO{sub 2} crossover in the narrow gap configuration.

Management entrenchment and the valuation discount of dual class firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Prior studies provide empirical evidence that dual class firms are discounted compared to single class firms due to the extraction of private benefits. This study examines the link between managerial entrenchment and the dual class discount. Using propensity score matching and conditioning for past underperformance, the paper shows that investors apply a greater discount to the value of dual class firms as the degree of managerial entrenchment increases. The impact of entrenchment on dual class discount is more pronounced when the CEO is the controlling shareholder compared to when the controlling shareholder is a director or the chairman of the board.

Firms and sustainability: Mapping the intellectual origins and structure of the corporate sustainability field  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Business research has repeatedly been criticized for its lack of engagement with pressing issues such as climate change, despite a surge of publications on corporate sustainability topics in recent years. We are therefore interested in identifying the knowledge development and knowledge gaps in business scholarship on the relationship between firms, environment and society. This paper provides a systematic review of the corporate sustainability field in form of a bibliometric analysis based on citation data acquired from the Social Sciences Citation Index. The final dataset contained 3117 records published between 1953 and 2011. Our analysis shows that, over the last 50 years, the field of corporate sustainability has emerged from a few primary nodes of research and developed into four distinct conceptual genealogies: corporate social performance theory, stakeholder theory, a corporate social performance versus economic performance debate, and a greening of management debate. The results of our analysis suggest four key findings. First, the four genealogies only comprise a relatively narrowly focused research scope. Second, there is very little integration and citation of work in other disciplinary areas such as ecology or environmental science. Third, the existing literature has a strong focus on empirically examining the relationship between a firm's environmental and/or social performance and its financial performance. Finally, there is little consideration of managerial implications and consequences of climate change in the corporate sustainability literature to date. We suggest that while this may be a reflection of an insular field, it may also be a role played by the management literature turning away from problem based issues in favor of empirical results, theory building, and the identification of variables that influence firm profitability and can be subjected to direct managerial control. We conclude by outlining pathways for future research.

Pneumatic gap sensor and method  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An apparatus and method for monitoring and maintaining a predetermined width in the gap between a casting nozzle and a casting wheel, wherein the gap is monitored by means of at least one pneumatic gap sensor. The pneumatic gap sensor is mounted on the casting nozzle in proximity to the casting surface and is connected by means of a tube to a regulator and a transducer. The regulator provides a flow of gas through a restictor to the pneumatic gap sensor, and the transducer translates the changes in the gas pressure caused by the proximity of the casting wheel to the pneumatic gap sensor outlet into a signal intelligible to a control device. The relative positions of the casting nozzle and casting wheel can thereby be selectively adjusted to continually maintain a predetermined distance between their adjacent surfaces. The apparatus and method enables accurate monitoring of the actual casting gap in a simple and reliable manner resistant to the extreme temperatures and otherwise hostile casting environment.

Virtual gap dielectric wall accelerator  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A virtual, moving accelerating gap is formed along an insulating tube in a dielectric wall accelerator (DWA) by locally controlling the conductivity of the tube. Localized voltage concentration is thus achieved by sequential activation of a variable resistive tube or stalk down the axis of an inductive voltage adder, producing a "virtual" traveling wave along the tube. The tube conductivity can be controlled at a desired location, which can be moved at a desired rate, by light illumination, or by photoconductive switches, or by other means. As a result, an impressed voltage along the tube appears predominantly over a local region, the virtual gap. By making the length of the tube large in comparison to the virtual gap length, the effective gain of the accelerator can be made very large.

Energy Gap in Nuclear Matter  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The magnitude of the energy gap in nuclear matter associated with a highly correlated ground state of of the type believed to be important in the theory of superconductivity has been evaluated theoretically. The integral equation of Cooper, Mills, and Sessler is linearized and transformed into a form suitable for numerical solution. The energy gap, calculated by using an appropriate single-particle potential and the Gammel-Thaler two-body potential, is found to be a very strong function of the density of nuclear matter, and of the effective mass at the Fermi surface. It is concluded that the magnitude of the energy gap for nuclear matter should not be compared directly with experimental values for finite nuclei, although the results suggest that if the theory is extended to apply to finite nuclei it probably would be in agreement with experiment.

Domain Walls in Gapped Graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The electronic properties of a particular class of domain walls in gapped graphene are investigated. We show that they can support midgap states which are localized in the vicinity of the domain wall and propagate along its length. With a finite density of domain walls, these states can alter the electronic properties of gapped graphene significantly. If the midgap band is partially filled, the domain wall can behave like a one-dimensional metal embedded in a semiconductor and could potentially be used as a single-channel quantum wire.

Mathematical model of a utility firm. Final technical report, Part I  

SciTech Connect

Utility companies are in the predicament of having to make forecasts, and draw up plans for the future, in an increasingly fluid and volatile socio-economic environment. The project being reported is to contribute to an understanding of the economic and behavioral processes that take place within a firm, and without it. Three main topics are treated. One is the representation of the characteristics of the members of an organization, to the extent to which characteristics seem pertinent to the processes of interest. The second is the appropriate management of the processes of change by an organization. The third deals with the competitive striving towards an economic equilibrium among the members of a society in the large, on the theory that this process might be modeled in a way which is similar to the one for the intra-organizational ones. This volume covers mainly the first topic.

Investment and capitalisation of firms in the USA  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the USA today, the precipitous rise of new financial mechanisms for capitalisation of firms as well as the merger and acquisition of others, especially risk equity capital through venture capitalist and investment banking, has sparked growth and helped to bring the economy out of the 1990s recession into a robust continuous growth pattern well positioned for the next century. The scenario is not new. For the venture capitalists of ''Silicon Valley'' in California, the experience is not new. They have seen the new industries arise before, like a phoenix from ashes of ruin, despair and even failure. Venture capital poured into high tech start-up companies has been an enormous source of financial support for the entrepreneurs who head new and growing companies. The mid-1990s marked the most dramatic increase yet recorded. Indicators, such as the NASDAQ document, outlined the solid and continuous growth in high tech industries. The paper discusses investment in US corporations within the context of governance and management of the company. Discussion about the various forms of finance are related to the organisation and management of the US corporation. Critical to any firm today are its ability to find innovative, new products or services. A growing literature on resource-base framework for analysis will be discussed as part of the firm's development of research for commercialisation. The results of a recent survey further shed light on the relationship between corporate financial management and allocated resources for research and development as the ''engine'' for new product development and therefore corporate market share and growth. The conclusion is that more financial mechanisms will be created and changed within US corporate systems to adjust, grow, and expand companies in the global economic arena, as the inevitable economic pattern leads to mergers, consolidations, and increasing cooperation and alliances among firms.

Calibration curves for some standard Gap Tests  

SciTech Connect

The relative shock sensitivities of explosive compositions are commonly assessed using a family of experiments that can be described by the generic term ''Gap Test.'' Gap tests include a donor charge, a test sample, and a spacer, or gap, between two explosives charges. The donor charge, gap material, and test dimensions are held constant within each different version of the gap test. The thickness of the gap is then varied to find the value at which 50% of the test samples will detonate. The gap tests measure the ease with a high-order detonation can be established in the test explosive, or the ''detonability,'' of the explosive. Test results are best reported in terms of the gap thickness at the 50% point. It is also useful to define the shock pressure transmitted into the test sample at the detonation threshold. This requires calibrating the gap test in terms of shock pressure in the gap as a function of the gap thickness. It also requires a knowledge of the shock Hugoniot of the sample explosive. We used the 2DE reactive hydrodynamic code with Forest Fire burn rates for the donor explosives to calculate calibration curves for several gap tests. The model calculations give pressure and particle velocity on the centerline of the experimental set-up and provide information about the curvature and pulse width of the shock wave. 10 refs., 1 fig.

The debt agency costs of family ownership in small and micro firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study investigates the impact that family ownership has on loan availability and credit terms. It differs from existing literature by investigating the impact of family ownership on loan availability and credit terms in small and micro firms. Our results suggest that loan availability becomes weaker when family ownership increases. Collateral requirements increase with family ownership, but contrary to previous studies we find no effect on interest rates. These results suggest that there are agency costs involved with family ownership. We also find that the impact of other attributes that affect loan availability or credit terms is different for family firms. Our results suggest that an increase in firm age improves loan availability and reduces collateral requirements only for the non-family firms. We also find that while an increase in profitability improves loan availability for all firms, it reduces interest rates and collateral requirements only for family firms.

Research Projects in Industrial Technology.  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this booklet is to briefly describe ongoing and completed projects being carried out by Bonneville Power Administration's (BPA) Industrial Technology Section. In the Pacific Northwest, the industrial sector is the largest of the four consuming sectors. It accounted for thirty-nine percent of the total firm demand in the region in 1987. It is not easy to asses the conservation potential in the industrial sector. Recognizing this, the Northwest Power Planning Council established an objective to gain information on the size, cost, and availability of the conservation resource in the industrial sector, as well as other sectors, in its 1986 Power Plan. Specifically, the Council recommended that BPA operate a research and development program in conjunction with industry to determine the potential costs and savings from efficiency improvements in industrial processes which apply to a wide array of industrial firms.'' The section, composed of multidisciplinary engineers, provides technical support to the Industrial Programs Branch by designing and carrying out research relating to energy conservation in the industrial sector. The projects contained in this booklet are arranged by sector --industrial, utility, and agricultural -- and, within each sector, chronologically from ongoing to completed, with those projects completed most recently falling first. For each project the following information is given: its objective approach, key findings, cost, and contact person. Completed projects also include the date of completion, a report title, and report number.

The association between research and development expenditure and firm performance: testing a life cycle hypothesis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Although prior studies provide evidence that investment in research and development (R&D) expenditure enhances a firm's performance, very little evidence is available on the impact of a firm's life cycle stages on the association between R&D expenditures and firm performance. We classify firms into three-life cycle stages, namely, growth, mature and stagnant, and choose four-life cycle classification variables which are dividends, sales growth, capital expenditure and firm age. Using 769-firm-year observations over a period of 11-years in Australia, we find that the abnormal returns to unexpected expensed R&D amounts are significantly negative. Further, our results suggest that market reaction to expensed R&D is more negatively pronounced during the stagnant phase of a firm's life cycle, suggesting that the market perceives that firms have limited prospects to derive benefits arising out of expensed R&D expenditures. The results suggest that the relationship between performance and investment in R&D is not linear but is moderated by a firm's life cycle which should be taken into account when making policy that is based on stock-based performance.

The returns to bidding firms in corporate takeovers: splitting up the pie  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, we examined the impact of ownership concentration in target firms on the returns to shareholders of bidding firms. In this research, we found that shareholders of bidding earn statistically significant positive abnormal returns surrounding takeover announcements. In addition, we found bidder returns of 4% over the event-window [?20, +20]. We showed that the degree of ownership concentration in target firms measured by the Herfindahl-concentration index significantly and positively affects the returns to bidding firms. These findings are consistent with the predictions of Grossman and Hart (1980), Bagnoli and Lipman (1988) and Holmstrom and Nalebuff (1992) takeover models.

Foreign firms to get equal opportunity in Mexican selloff plans  

SciTech Connect

Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has not finalized details of its long-awaited petrochemical privatization program. However, the state oil group has made it clear the selloff schedule, due to begin during the next two months, will give equal investment opportunity to foreign firms, dashing the hopes of Mexican groups that they would be given first right of refusal in the privatization program. Meanwhile, Pemex has agreed with Shell Oil on a previously announced refining joint venture involving Shell's 225,000-bbl/day refinery at Deer Park, TX. Under the plan, Pemex will purchase a 50% stake in the refinery and join Shell in a $1-billion upgrade with would enable it to handle more Mexican crude. Sources believe that Shell and other US oil groups are interested in acquiring assets from Pemex Petroquimica.

The growth of Quebec's biotechnology firms and the implications of underinvestment in strategic competencies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper examines the problem of human resources access for biotechnology firms in Quebec. The results of a survey conducted with 124 biotechnology firm managers document that access to human resources is a sizable challenge, the second most important issue facing these firms, after financing. The results further indicate that while firm managers are preoccupied by the skills and competencies of human resources and recognise its importance, the scarcity of available headcount in the market, coupled with firm growth management imperatives, are a key limiting factor in the development of the firms' competencies. In this study, a strategic competence model is applied to understand the contribution of human resources to the management process of biotechnology firms. In particular, we formulate the working hypothesis that firms engage in fierce competition in the input market for scientific, technological, and management competencies. A systems archetype is used to illustrate the tradeoff between short-term financial priorities and the need for capacity building, whose ''tangible'' benefits will only be measured in the long term.

Building up a firm's commercialisation competence: from product concept to the first reference  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study examines the build-up of commercialisation competence when a firm moves from concept development to the first customer reference. During this period, substantial learning on commercialisation occurs as the firm develops an understanding of the fit between the business environment and the new product, which helps the firm improve its strategic marketing decisions. This process builds the innovator firm's commercialisation competence which makes it possible for the firm to succeed in acquiring the first reference. The study draws on the literature on innovation management concerning innovation competence, commercialisation of innovations, and reference marketing. Employing qualitative multiple case analysis, this study generates a dynamic model for commercialisation competence build-up and identifies strategic marketing, market preparation/creation and sales creation as key competence groups for commercialisation with a total of 14 sub-competences. The developed framework serves as a managerial tool to determine critical steps in commercialisation and the required commercialisation competences.

Does corporate ownership structure affect firms' environmental performance? Evidence in the European energy industry  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The present paper aims to explore the mutual influence existing between corporate ownership structure and firms' environmental performance. The attention is focused on the energy industry, that represents one of the industries with the highest environmental impact and that, in the last few years, has been forced to increase efforts towards green issues. In particular, the introduction of vertical unbundling in electricity and gas markets provides the opportunity to concentrate the attention on European energy companies operating in service activities, in which it is possible to better understand firms' environmental performance. The study, performing a linear regression model, examines the explanatory power of corporate governance issues, in particular firms' ownership structure, as potential determinants of companies' environmental performance. The results show that firms with more diffuse ownership present the worst environmental performance, while greater stakes held by institutional investors or by the state do not seem to be related with firms' green performance.

The effects of the split share structure reform on Chinese listed firms leverage decisions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper examines the effects of China's split share structure reform on the leverage decisions of listed firms. The results show that there are two effects, multiple large shareholders and liquidity that affect the leverage ratio. In non-state controlled firms, multiple large shareholders are able to monitor the controlling shareholders which reduce the leverage ratio. However, in state-controlled firms, they collude with the controlling shareholders to expropriate through debt financing. State ownership plays a decisive role in driving multiple large shareholders to collude with the controlling shareholders.

A comparative study of the alliance experiences between US and Taiwanese firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The major purpose of this study is to conduct a comparative analysis between US and Taiwanese firms for examining similarities and differences of their alliance experiences. The results indicate that first, US and Taiwanese firms have different alliance behaviours in the choice of alliance form and alliance type. Secondly, in general, the intensity of formation motive and partner interaction is positively related to the alliance performance while interfirm diversity plays a negative role in affecting the alliance performance. However, alliance performance of both US and Taiwanese firms is affected by different patterns of alliance form, formation motive and interfirm diversity.

The 6/94 gap in health impact assessment  

SciTech Connect

Health impact assessment (HIA), a methodology that aims to facilitate the mitigation of negative and enhancement of positive health effects due to projects, programmes and policies, has been developed over the past 20-30 years. There is an underlying assumption that HIA has become a full fledged critical piece of the impact assessment process with a stature equal to both environmental and social impact assessments. This assumption needs to be supported by evidence however. Within the context of projects in developing country settings, HIA is simply a slogan without a clearly articulated and relevant methodology, offered by academia and having little or no salience in the decision-making process regarding impacts. This harsh assertion is supported by posing a simple question: 'Where in the world have HIAs been carried out?' To answer this question, we systematically searched the peer-reviewed literature and online HIA-specific databases. We identified 237 HIA-related publications, but only 6% of these publications had a focus on the developing world. What emerges is, therefore, a huge disparity, which we coin the 6/94 gap in HIA, even worse than the widely known 10/90 gap in health research (10% of health research funding is utilized for diseases causing 90% of the global burden of disease). Implications of this 6/94 gap in HIA are discussed with pointed emphasis on extractive industries (oil/gas and mining) and water resources development. We conclude that there is a pressing need to institutionalize HIA in the developing world, as a consequence of current predictions of major extractive industry and water resources development, with China's investments in these sectors across Africa being particularly salient.

Proposals in for Czech firms; cooperation likely with eastern Germany  

SciTech Connect

Two Western groups - Shell and a consortium made up of Agip, Conoco, and Total - have offered to buy the refining operations of Chemopetrol Litvinov and Kaucuk Kralupy, both in the Czech republic. Meanwhile, Amoco, Neste, and PCD are looking at the possibility of acquiring some of the plastics plants at Litvinov. Amoco is interested in the polypropylene operations, Neste in polyethylene, and PCD in both. The two Czech firms are included in the second wave of privatization, which will begin in midyear. So far, there have been no offers for the 80,000-m.t./year polystyrene and 60,000-m.t./year styrene butadiene rubber operations belonging to Kralupy, although Atochem representatives recently visited the plants. Litvinov is carrying out revamping operations at its core unit, a 12-year-old, 450,000-m.t./year ethylene plant. The plant, currently running at 400,000 m.t./year, supplies downstream plants, Neratovice, and sells on the export markets. An existing ethylene pipeline between Litvinov and Bohlen in eastern Germany, which used to supply an average 100,000 m.t./year of ethylene to Bohen in exchange for naphtha, is virtually unused. One proposal involves reactivating this exchange to secure ethylene feedstock for plants in eastern Germany. According to some sources, a preliminary decision has been made to shut down the 100,000-m.t./year ethylene plant at Leuna and possibly to expand the Bohlen cracker by 100,000 m.t./year, to 400,000 m.t./year by the late 1990s.

Gaps in the Heisenberg-Ising model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report on the closing of gaps in the ground state of the critical Heisenberg-Ising chain at momentum ?. For half-filling, the gap closes at special values of the anisotropy ?=cos(?/Q), where Q is an integer. We explain this behavior with the help of the Bethe ansatz and show that the gap scales as a power of the system size with a variable exponent depending on ?. We use a finite-size analysis to calculate this exponent in the critical region, supplemented by perturbation theory at ??0. For rational 1/r fillings, the gap is shown to be closed for all values of ? and the corresponding perturbation expansion in ? shows a remarkable cancellation of various diagrams.

The relationship between technology-based and product-based knowledge and alliance formation in new firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Firms are typically viewed as seeking alliances to achieve certain outcomes, advantages they perceive will result from these relationships. Our research investigates whether certain inputs, specifically knowledge, can explain differential alliance formation. Our empirical analysis of 67 new computer and telecommunications firms reveals that firms with more extensive technology-based and product-based knowledge are more likely to form alliances at a higher rate than those with less extensive knowledge. The implications for these findings are that alliances are more attractive to firms with a foundation of knowledge that can be leveraged, and firms with this knowledge have something of value to attract alliance partners.

How important are transaction costs for service firm integration decisions? A meta-analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As the global economy becomes more service-based, the need to understand how service firms govern different activities has become increasingly important. Transaction Cost Theory (TCT) has long been a key perspective on the integration of different activities. TCT asserts that the costs surrounding exchanges, called transaction costs, direct managers' decisions about whether or not to integrate. We take a step towards understanding whether transaction costs play a role in service firms' integration decisions by aggregating results from 28 studies involving 31 samples via meta-analysis. The results reveal that TCT offers limited explanatory power for service firms' integration decisions, and that TCT requires augmentation with other theories in order to explain how service firms govern such activities.

Knowledge sharing within strategic alliance networks and its influence on firm performance: the liner shipping industry  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

With increasing ubiquity of globalisation and the knowledge-based economy, the significance of knowledge as a critical firm resource is widely acknowledged, whilst strategic alliances are increasingly employed as instruments for knowledge sharing. The progressive formation of prominent alliance networks has also spurred much research on the effects of alliance networks on firm performance. With scant maritime-related research on such areas and strategic alliances being rampant in liner shipping, it is important to understand the knowledge dynamics within liner shipping alliance networks and examine their impact on firm performance. An exploratory approach, via face-to-face interviews with liner shipping executives, was adopted to obtain detailed insights and understanding for all research objectives. The findings of this study revealed existing mechanisms of knowledge sharing within liner shipping alliance networks, illustrate how information sharing amongst partners enhances firm performance, and demonstrate the positive yet limited moderating effects of geographical proximity on the former relationship.

Doppler effects in periodic acoustic media were studied theoretically and experimentally. Analytical formulas are derived using the Greens function formalism. We found that a far field observer cannot hear the sound inside a band gap from a stationary source, but a moving source can be heard even if the frequency is inside the gap, and the Doppler shifts can be inverted or anomalously large.

Some insights into French entrepreneurship research from the hypofirm model to the PIE and GAP typology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This contribution deals with the pioneering research on entrepreneurship and small businesses that Professor Marchesnay initiated in France in the mid-80s, by setting up a research team devoted to the study of firms and industry (ERFI) at the University of Montpellier. Two major contributions on entrepreneurship and small business theories are described. Firstly, the hypofirm model, published in 1980, aimed to justify in some logical manner the superiority of smallness under given circumstances. The model anticipated some well-known concepts, such as dynamic capabilities or transaction costs. Secondly, the typology of entrepreneurs, published in 1987, based on the dominant logic of action, either patrimonial or entrepreneurial, contributed to establish a clear-cut differentiation between the entrepreneurs in search of either a perennial business activity (PIE), or simply rapid success (GAP). That typology lead to another one based on the duality between the social need for legitimacy and the economic incentive to competitiveness.

Technological innovations in Indian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) sector: does firm size matter?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

SMEs, irrespective of size, are primarily engaged in 'incremental technological innovations' with self efforts. But average innovation expenditure and innovation personnel increased with firm size. There is a positive relationship between innovation expenditure and value of output, and negative relationship between innovation intensity and firm size. Innovation expenditure with labour and capital has a significant influence on the value of output in each of the sub sectors.

Can investors rely on the quality of earnings figures published by listed and non-listed Russian firms?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper investigates earnings quality of both listed and non-listed Russian firms and explores whether foreign ownership affects the quality of earnings published by non-listed Russian firms. Russia, the largest European transitional economy, is an increasingly attractive market for foreign investors. Our empirical results show that Russian firms listed on a stock exchange report earnings of relatively good quality. We do not find support for the hypothesis that non-listed Russian firms co-owned by foreign investors report earnings of better quality than do exclusively Russian-owned non-listed firms. However, we find that non-listed Russian firms with foreign ownership report earnings with more timely recognition of economic gains than exclusively Russian-owned non-listed firms do. Our results are robust for different specifications of the earnings quality model.

Spark gap device for precise switching  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A spark gap device for precise switching of an energy storage capacitor into an exploding bridge wire load is disclosed. Niobium electrodes having a melting point of 2,415 degrees centrigrade are spaced apart by an insulating cylinder to define a spark gap. The electrodes are supported by conductive end caps which, together with the insulating cylinder, form a hermetically sealed chamber filled with an inert, ionizable gas, such as pure xenon. A quantity of solid radioactive carbon-14 within the chamber adjacent the spark gap serves as a radiation stabilizer. The sides of the electrodes and the inner wall of the insulating cylinder are spaced apart a sufficient distance to prevent unwanted breakdown initiation. A conductive sleeve may envelop the outside of the insulating member from the midpoint of the spark gap to the cap adjacent the cathode. The outer metallic surfaces of the device may be coated with a hydrogen-impermeable coating to lengthen the shelf life and operating life of the device. The device breaks down at about 1,700 volts for input voltage rates up to 570 volts/millisecond and allows peak discharge currents of up to 3,000 amperes from a 0.3 microfarad energy storage capacitor for more than 1,000 operations.

Does media governance restrict corporate overinvestment behavior? Evidence from Chinese listed firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Using Chinas A-share listed firms from 2007 to 2011, this paper empirically tests how media governance affects firms levels of overinvestment and whether external supervision and informal institutional mechanisms reduce these levels. We find that media governance and overinvestment are significantly negatively related. When firms are located in a district with a stronger media governance environment their levels of overinvestment are lower, indicating that media governance significantly restricts overinvestment behavior. When internal corporate governance efficiency is low, the negative relationship between the media environment and overinvestment behavior is significantly enhanced, indicating that when internal governance or formal systems have reduced efficacy, an important complementary role is played by external supervision and the informal institutional environment. After considering endogeneity and different measures of overinvestment and other related variables, the conclusions remain unchanged.

Do I like my ICON? Determining preferences for firms' mode of strategic focus  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Whether they intend to or not, firms adopt a strategic mode of focus, a way of directing efforts towards markets, products, both or neither. However, in a fast changing environment, such as South Africa, little information exists on whether managers within these organisations feel that the archetype they have adopted will be appropriate for survival in the near mid-term future. This paper reports on the results of a study that identified the modes of focus of South African firms as perceived by senior marketing managers. It then matches these to the strategic mode that the managers see as most likely to guarantee the future success of their firms. Limitations of the study are identified, implications for management highlighted and avenues for future research discussed.

Bridging the Gap: Linking Simulation and Testing  

SciTech Connect

The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) which is a key enabler for the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, announced in 2011 by U.S. President Barack Obama, was established to accelerate the development and deployment of advanced materials. The MGI is driven by the need to "bridge the gap" between (I) experimental results and computational analysis to enable the rapid development and validation of new mateirals, and (II) the processes required to convert these materials into useable goods.

Entanglement Sudden Death in Band Gaps  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Using the pseudomode method, we evaluate exactly time-dependent entanglement for two independent qubits, each coupled to a non-Markovian structured environment. Our results suggest a possible way to control entanglement sudden death by modifying the qubit-pseudomode detuning and the spectrum of the reservoirs. Particularly, in environments structured by a model of a density-of-states gap which has two poles, entanglement trapping and prevention of entanglement sudden death occur in the weak-coupling regime.

Fabrication of photonic band gap materials  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A method for forming a periodic dielectric structure exhibiting photonic band gap effects includes forming a slurry of a nano-crystalline ceramic dielectric or semiconductor material and monodisperse polymer microspheres, depositing a film of the slurry on a substrate, drying the film, and calcining the film to remove the polymer microspheres therefrom. The film may be cold-pressed after drying and prior to calcining. The ceramic dielectric or semiconductor material may be titania, and the polymer microspheres may be polystyrene microspheres.

Bank-firm credit network in Japan. An analysis of a bipartite network  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present an analysis of the credit market of Japan. The analysis is performed by investigating the bipartite network of banks and firms which is obtained by setting a link between a bank and a firm when a credit relationship is present in a given time window. In our investigation we focus on a community detection algorithm which is identifying communities composed by both banks and firms. We show that the clusters obtained by directly working on the bipartite network carry information about the networked nature of the Japanese credit market. Our analysis is performed for each calendar year during the time period from 1980 to 2011. Specifically, we obtain communities of banks and networks for each of the 32 investigated years, and we introduce a method to track the time evolution of these communities on a statistical basis. We then characterize communities by detecting the simultaneous over-expression of attributes of firms and banks. Specifically, we consider as attributes the economic sector and the geogra...

Methodology for Defining Gap Areas between Course-over-ground Locations  

SciTech Connect

Finding all areas that lie outside some distance d from a polyline is a problem with many potential applications. This application of the Visual Sample Plan (VSP) software required finding all areas that were more than distance d from a set of existing paths (roads and trails) represented by polylines. An outer container polygon (known in VSP as a sample area) defines the extents of the area of interest. The term gap area was adopted for this project, but another useful term might be negative coverage area. The project required a polygon solution rather than a raster solution. The search for a general solution provided no results, so this methodology was developed

Evaluating the exploration efficiency of oil and gas firms using SFAS 69 supplemental disclosures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Investors and other users of financial statements often analyze financial statement information to evaluate the exploration efficiency of oil and gas firms. One approach commonly employed is to calculate an average per-unit cost of finding and developing oil and gas reserves using data disclosed by oil and gas firms in the footnotes to their financial statements. These average finding costs ratios, while widely used, are by no means universally accepted as providing meaningful insight into the exploration efficiency and potential profitability of an oil and gas firm. In fact, a number of financial analysts who specialize in oil and gas firms have argued that these finding costs ratios in fact provide no useful insights into how well a company has done. The purpose of our paper is to evaluate the usefulness of these finding costs measures as indicators of exploration efficiency and potential profitability. Our approach involves comparing the statistical association between various finding costs measures to a benchmark measure of exploration efficiency derived from a Cobb-Douglas regression. We also compare these finding costs measures to two commonly used financial statement measures of profitabilityreturn on sales and return on assetsto evaluate whether finding costs are useful as indicators of profitability. Our results indicate that finding costs ratios calculated from readily available financial statement data provide useful insight into both exploration efficiency and the potential profitability of an oil and gas firm. Our findings are important because they provide empirical evidence useful in resolving a debate within the financial analyst community concerning the utility of these finding costs ratios.

Analysis of the Brazilian context for clean development mechanism projects under an economical perspective  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The creating of clean development mechanism (CDM) projects depends on the institutional environment of host countries. Although Brazil has resources for developing CDM projects, institutional environment is not favourable. The objective of this article is to examine this argument under the perspective of three different economic theories: resource-based view (RBV), transaction cost economics (TCE) and new institutional economics (NIE). The results show that this theoretical triad may explain how economic aspects at firm and institutional environment levels influence the manner in which strategies are chosen and competitive advantage is gained by firms in the field of CDM projects. In the specific context of Brazil, opportunities are supported by the predominance of renewable sources in the energy mix and self-developed clean technologies. On the other hand, the obstacles include small-scale projects and the lack of nationwide policies, which defines the path dependence of CDM projects.

Magneto-transport properties of gapped graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Based on the Kubo formula, we have studied the electron transport properties of a gapped graphene in the presence of a strong magnetic field. By solving the Dirac equation, we find that the Landau level spectra in two valleys differ from each other in that the n = 0 level in the K valley is located at top of the valence band, whereas it is at the bottom of the conduction band in the K' valley. Thus, in an individual valley, the symmetry between conduction and valence bands is broken by the presence of a magnetic field. By using the self-consistent Born approximation to treat the long range potential scattering, we formulate the diagonal and the Hall conductivities in terms of the Green function. To perform the numerical calculation, we find that a large bandgap can suppress the quantum Hall effect, owing to the enhancement of the bandgap squeezing the spacing between the low-lying Landau levels. On the other hand, if the bandgap is not very large, the odd integer quantum Hall effect experimentally, observed in the gapless graphene, remains in the gapped one. However, such a result does not indicate the half integer quantum Hall effect in an individual valley of the gapped graphene. This is because the heights of the Hall plateaux in either valley can be continuously tuned by the variation of the bandgap. More interestingly, we find that the height of the diagonal conductivity peak corresponding to the n = 0 Landau level is independent of the bandgap if the scattering is not very strong. In the weak scattering limit, we demonstrate analytically that such a peak takes a universal value e2/(h?), regardless of the bandgap.

This note presents a result on the maximal prime gap of the form p_(n+1) - p_n 0 is a constant, for any arbitrarily small real number e > 0, and all sufficiently large integer n > n_0. Equivalently, the result shows that any short interval [x, x + y], y => C(log x)^(1+e), contains prime numbers for all sufficiently large real numbers x => x_0 unconditionally. An application demonstrates that a prime p => x > 2 can be determined in deterministic polynomial time O(log(x)^8).

Complexified cones. Spectral gaps and variational principles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider contractions of complexified real cones, as recently introduced by Rugh in [Rugh10]. Dubois [Dub09] gave optimal conditions to determine if a matrix contracts a canonical complex cone. First we generalize his results to the case of complex operators on a Banach space and give precise conditions for the contraction and an improved estimate of the size of the associated spectral gap. We then prove a variational formula for the leading eigenvalue similar to the Collatz-Wielandt formula for a real cone contraction. Morally, both cases boil down to the study of suitable collections of 2 by 2 matrices and their contraction properties on the Riemann sphere.

Ideal Soliton Environment Using Parametric Band Gaps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Simultaneous solitary wave solutions for laser propagation in nonlinear parametric media with up to ( 3+1) dimensions are proved to exist. The combination of the large dispersion of a Bragg grating and the strong nonlinearity of ?(2) optical material results in stable behavior with short interaction distances and low power requirements. The solutions are obtained by using the effective mass approximation to reduce the coupled propagation equations to those describing a dispersive parametric nonlinear waveguide, and are verified by solving the complete set of coupled band-gap equations numerically.

Characteristics and determinants of insourced and offshored projects: A comparative analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Similar in-house (or insourced) and offshored software development data were paired to find differences (if any) on four project performance criteria: project elapsed times, size, data quality, and same-source nations. For each paired project, the differences between five technical variables (development type, application type, architecture, development platform, and programming language) were considered. The resource dependency theory was used to examine the technical differences between matched projects. Additionally, Hofstede's cultural dimensions were used to analyze the performance of offshored software projects. Data from the International Software Benchmarking Standard Group (ISBSG) was used. The main empirical findings were as follows: project completion time is significantly shorter for in-house development projects; and firms prefer offshoring for new projects, client-service platforms, and newer application languages. Some of Hofstede's cultural dimensions do affect project quality and work effort for offshore projects.

Extended Supersymmetry in Gapped and Superconducting Graphene  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In view of the many quantum field theoretical descriptions of graphene in $2+1$ dimensions, we present another field theoretical feature of graphene, in the presence of defects. Particularly, we shall be interested in gapped graphene in the presence of a domain wall and also for superconducting graphene in the presence of a vortex. As we explicitly demonstrate, the gapped graphene electrons that are localized on the domain wall are associated with four $N=2$ one dimensional supersymmetries, with each pair combining to form an extended $N=4$ supersymmetry with non-trivial topological charges. The case of superconducting graphene is more involved, with the electrons localized on the vortex being associated with $n$ one dimensional supersymmetries, which in turn combine to form an $N=2n$ extended supersymmetry with no-trivial topological charges. As we shall prove, all supersymmetries are unbroken, a feature closely related to the number of the localized fermions and also to the exact form of the associated oper...

Research on marketing in emerging firms: key issues and open questions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In many industries, emerging firms derive their initial strength from R&D activities. Though technological capabilities are important for building technologically sound products, they are not sufficient for turning an emerging firm into a viable economic actor, as numerous examples illustrate. Based on a discussion of the specific challenges of marketing in new ventures and a brief overview on past and current research studies, this article focuses on reviewing research findings on four key topics: establishing a market orientation, building credibility and trust with stakeholders, establishing marketing alliances and low-cost marketing. Though previous research has produced important insights into each of these topics, there are still plenty of issues that offer promising opportunities for future studies.

The use of third party logistics services by Swedish manufacturing firms: current situation and future prospects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The aim of this research is to examine the usage of TPL services by manufacturing firms in Sweden. The paper focuses on several key issues relating to the extent of usage of TPL services; decision-making process; the impact of using TPL services on user firms; specific TPL services that were used and future plans to use TPL services. More than half of the respondents were using TPL services and most of the users were satisfied with their service providers. While cost consideration was still critical, customer satisfaction reliability and service quality were becoming more crucial to decision-making and evaluation. This research provides results and analysis to practitioners by depicting the impacts of using TPL services. It also gives information to TPL service providers so they can better understand the current situation and future challenges.

Analytic description of SU(3) lattice thermodynamics within the mass gap approach. I  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A general method how to analytically describe and understand $SU(3)$ lattice thermodynamics within the effective potential approach for composite operators properly generalized to finite temperature and density is formulated and used. This makes it possible to introduce into this formalism a dependence on the mass gap, which is responsible for the large-scale dynamical structure of the QCD ground state. The gluon plasma pressure adjusted by this approach to the corresponding lattice data is shown to be a continuously growing function of temperature in the whole temperature range $[0, \\infty)$. The entropy and energy densities have finite jump discontinuities at some characteristic temperature $T_c = 266.5$ MeV with latent heat $\\epsilon_{LH}= 1.41$. This is a firm evidence of the first-order phase transition in $SU(3)$ pure gluon plasma. The heat capacity has a $\\delta$-type singularity (an essential discontinuity) at $T_c$, so that the velocity of sound squared becomes zero at this point. All the independent thermodynamic quantities are exponentially suppressed below $T_c$ and rather slowly approach their respective Stefan-Boltzmann limits at high temperatures. Those thermodynamic quantities which are the ratios of their independent counterparts such as conformity, conformality and the velocity of sound squared approach their Stefan-Boltzmann limits at high temperatures rather rapidly and demonstrate a non-trivial dependence on the temperature below $T_c$. We also calculate the trace anomaly relation (the interaction measure) and the gluon condensate, which are especially sensitive to the non-perturbative effects. All the calculated thermodynamic quantities have a complicate and rather different dependence on the mass gap across $T_c$. An analytical description of the dynamical structure of $SU(3)$ gluon plasma is given as well.

Pseudogap and Superconducting Gap in High-Temperature Superconductors  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Pseudogap and Superconducting Gap in Pseudogap and Superconducting Gap in High-Temperature Superconductors Two decades after the discovery of first high temperature superconductors, the microscopic mechanism of high-Tc superconductivity remains elusive. In conventional superconductors, it has been well established that electrons form so-called "Cooper pairs" to give rise to superconductivity. The pair binding manifests itself as an energy gap in many spectroscopic measurements. This energy gap, known as superconducting gap, appears at the superconducting transition temperature Tc where the resistance also vanishes. For high temperature superconductors, the story is more complicated. Over a wide region of compositions and temperatures, there exists an energy gap well above Tc. This energy gap is called pseudogap [1], because there is no direct correlation to the superconducting transition. The origin of this pseudogap and its relation to the superconducting gap are believed to hold the key for understanding the mechanism of high-Tc superconductivity - one of the outstanding problems in condensed matter physics. In this regard, researchers Kiyohisa Tanaka and Wei-Sheng Lee, along with their co-workers in Prof. Zhi-Xun Shen's group at Stanford University, have recently made an important discovery about the coexistence of two distinct energy gaps that have opposite doping dependence. Their observation not only provides a natural explanation for the contradictory results about the superconducting gap deduced from different experimental techniques, but also has profound implications on the mechanism of high-Tc superconductivity.

9, 2010 9, 2010 Data Acquisition Processor Fills Gap for Extreme Down-hole Conditions Honeywell Develops Unique Reprogrammable High Temperature Device Morgantown, WV - Honeywell International, Inc. has developed a Reconfigurable Processor for Data Acquisition (RPDA) - a reprogrammable, multi-functional device that can operate at temperatures up to 250oC (482oF). The system is housed in a rugged package suitable for deep down-hole oil and natural gas logging and measurement-while-drilling (MWD) operations, and permanent wellbore installation applications. The project was funded through a cooperative agreement with the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) under the Office of Fossil Energy's Oil and Natural Gas Program. Deep wells are generally defined as having a true vertical depth (TVD) greater than 15,000 feet, while ultra-deep wells are deeper than 25,000 feet TVD. Potential recoverable natural gas and oil resources from deep formations are significant, and deep wells tend to produce at much higher daily rates than conventional shallower wells.

Structural organization of gap junction channels  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Gap junctions were initially described morphologically, and identified as semi-crystalline arrays of channels linking two cells. This suggested that they may represent an amenable target for electron and X-ray crystallographic studies in much the same way that bacteriorhodopsin has. Over 30 years later, however, an atomic resolution structural solution of these unique intercellular pores is still lacking due to many challenges faced in obtaining high expression levels and purification of these structures. A variety of microscopic techniques, as well as NMR structure determination of fragments of the protein, have now provided clearer and correlated views of how these structures are assembled and function as intercellular conduits. As a complement to these structural approaches, a variety of mutagenic studies linking structure and function have now allowed molecular details to be superimposed on these lower resolution structures, so that a clearer image of pore architecture and its modes of regulation are beginning to emerge.

Two-gap elliptic solutions of the Boussinesq equation  

SciTech Connect

Two-gap solutions of the Boussinesq equation are considered. It is shown that for almost every Riemann surface {gamma} of genus g=2 covering the elliptic surface it is possible to construct an elliptic (in x) two-gap solution of the Boussinesq equation. The existence of third- and fourth-order differential operators with elliptic 'two-gap' potentials having an arbitrary number of poles is also established. An example is given.

CO2 emission and firm heterogeneity: a study of metals and metal-based industries in India  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Industrial energy efficiency has emerged as one of the key issues in India. The increasing demand for energy that leads to growing challenge of climate change has resulted major issues. It is obvious that high-energy intensity leads to high carbon intensity of the economy. This paper is an attempt to estimate the firm level CO2 emissions for the metals and metal-based industries in Indian manufacturing. Calculation of firm level emissions is carried out following IPCC reference approach methodology of carbon dioxide emission from fuel combustion. We tried to find out the inter-firm differences of CO2 emission in the metals and metal-based industries. Data for this study is collated from the CMIE PROWESS online database from 2000-2008, IEA energy statistics and IPCC conversion factors for each of the fuel types. This study found size, age, energy intensity and technology import intensity as the major determinants of CO2 emission intensity of Indian metal and metal-based firms. In addition capital and labour intensity of the firms are also related to the firms' emission intensity.

Who is afraid of political risk? Multinational firms and their choice of capital structure  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper investigates how multinational firms choose the capital structure of their foreign affiliates in response to political risk. We focus on two choice variables, the leverage and the ownership structure of the foreign affiliate, and we distinguish different types of political risk, such as expropriation, unreliable intellectual property rights and confiscatory taxation. In our theoretical analysis we find that, as political risk increases, the ownership share tends to decrease, whereas leverage can both increase or decrease, depending on the type of political risk. Using the Microdatabase Direct Investment of the Deutsche Bundesbank, we find supportive evidence for these different effects.

Electronic materials with a wide band gap: recent developments  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Usually, semiconductors with a band gap Eg 3 eV or larger are called wide band gap materials. Their optical emission can span the whole of the visible spectrum, enabling the development of devices for solid-state lighting. In addition, a large Eg results in a high electrical breakthrough field, which is interesting for high-power electronics.

Substrate-Induced Band-Gap Opening in Epitaxial Graphene Print Substrate-Induced Band-Gap Opening in Epitaxial Graphene Print Prospective challengers to silicon, the long-reigning king of semiconductors for computer chips and other electronic devices, have to overcome silicon's superb collection of materials properties as well as sophisticated fabrication technologies refined by six decades of effort by materials scientists and engineers. Graphene, one of the latest contenders, has a rather impressive list of features of its own but has lacked a key characteristic of all semiconductors, an energy gap (band gap) in its electronic band structure. A multi-institutional collaboration under the leadership of researchers with Berkeley Lab and the University of California, Berkeley, have now demonstrated that growing an epitaxial film of graphene on a silicon carbide substrate results in a significant band gap, 0.26 electron volts (eV), an important step toward making graphene useful as a semiconductor.

Spectral gap and logarithmic Sobolev constant for continuous spin systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The aim of this paper is to study the spectral gap and the logarithmic Sobolev constant for continuous spin systems. A simple but general result for estimating the spectral gap of finite dimensional systems is given by Theorem 1.1, in terms of the spectral gap for one-dimensional marginals. The study of the topic provides us a chance, and it is indeed another aim of the paper, to justify the power of the results obtained previously. The exact order in dimension one (Proposition 1.4), and then the precise leading order and the explicit positive regions of the spectral gap and the logarithmic Sobolev constant for two typical infinite-dimensional models are presented (Theorems 6.2 and 6.3). Since we are interested in explicit estimates, the computations become quite involved. A long section (Section 4) is devoted to the study of the spectral gap in dimension one.

New Embolization Microcoil Consisting of Firm and Flexible Segments: Preliminary Clinical Experience  

SciTech Connect

Purpose. To describe the preliminary clinical experience with a new embolization microcoil. Methods. The microcoil was made of a platinum coil spring, and consisted of firm and flexible segments. The firm segment functioned as an anchor and the flexible segment was well compacted to occlude the arteries. No Dacron fiber was attached. Seventy-one new microcoils were placed via microcatheters in 28 visceral arteries of 17 patients. Two other types of microcoils with Dacron fibers were used together in 8 arteries. Results. Sixty-nine new microcoils were placed and compacted successfully. Two coils were misplaced; one was retrieved and the other was left in the migrated artery, which remained patent 5 months later. All 28 arteries were occluded, and the goals of intervention were achieved successfully in all 17 cases. Conclusion. The new microcoils anchored and compacted well in the arteries. The clinical feasibility of this coil design was confirmed. The additional use of other types of microcoils with Dacron fiber was necessary to obtain rapid occlusion in some cases.

SciTech Connect

This chapter describes work at ORNL in the period around 1950, when the laboratory was evolving from its original mission of research aimed at producing the atomic bomb, to a new mission, which in many ways was unclear. The research division from Y-12 merged with the laboratory, which gave an increased work force, access to a wide array of equipment, and the opportunity to work on a number of projects related to nuclear propulsion. The first major project was for a nuclear aircraft. From work on this program, a good share of the laboratories work in peaceful application of nuclear energy would spring. A major concern was the development of light weight shielding to protect the crew and materials in such a plane. To do such shielding work, the laboratory employed existing, and new reactors. The original plans called for the transfer of reactor work to Argonne, but because of their own research load, and the needs of the lab, new reactor projects were started at the lab. They included the Low Intensity Test Reactor, the Swimming Pool Reactor, the Bulk Shielding Reactor, the Tower Shielding Facility, and others. The laboratory was able to extend early work on calutrons to accelerator development, pursuing both electrostatic accelerators and cyclotrons. The aircraft project also drove the need for immense quantities of scientific data, with rapid analysis, which resulted the development of divisions aimed at information support and calculational support. The laboratory also expanded its work in the effects of radiation and cells and biological systems, as well as in health physics.

Bridging the Gaps of High-Tc Superconductor  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Bridging the Gaps of High-Tc Bridging the Gaps of High-Tc Superconductor Since the discovery of high-temperature superconductor by Bednorz and Müller in 1986, this field has become one of the most important research topics in solid state physics. In the past 20 years many unconventional properties have been discovered in this new class of materials. These have challenged our conventional wisdom and driven the development of many novel theories. Among these discoveries, the most mysterious is probably the pseudogap phenomena: it has been observed that there is an energy gap above the superconducting transition temperature (TC) that persists over a wide range of temperatures and chemical compositions [1]. This peculiar behavior appears to be very different from a conventional superconductor. Here the electrons form so-called "Cooper pairs", which manifests itself as an energy gap in many spectroscopic measurements. This energy gap, known as superconducting gap, appears only below TC where the electrical resistance also vanishes (hence the name 'superconductor'). This important difference has stimulated lots of debate in the search of understanding high-TC superconductivity on questions such as: "What is the pseudogap?" and "What is its relation to superconducting gap and superconductivity at high temperature?"

An artificial neural network-based DSS to prioritise information technology and its complementary investments in industrial firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The impact of IT usage on performance and other organisation's outputs is an important issue for both practitioners and academics. Evidence shows that despite a vast percentage of firm's budget which has spent on IT is continuing increasingly, there are some failures of firms in obtaining the benefits of these expenditures within expected period. To solve this problem, managers have to consider complementary investments. In this paper a decision support system is developed for prioritising investments on the information technology (IT) and its complementary investment using data of 102 car part suppliers in Iran. This software is developed using an artificial neural network and results are validated finally. One of the main specifications of this DSS is investigating on IT aspects at the firm level, which can help top management during decision making process to allocate budget properly in the most significant aspects of IT investment inside their own company.

Evaluating the impact of R&D tax credits on innovation: A microeconometric study on Canadian firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study examines the effect of R&D tax credits on innovation activities of Canadian manufacturing firms. Over the 19971999 period the Federal and Provincial R&D tax credit programs were used by more than one third of all manufacturing firms and by close to two thirds of firms in high-technology sectors. We investigate the average effect of R&D tax credits on a series of innovation indicators such as: number of new products, sales with new products, originality of innovation, etc. using a non-parametric matching approach. Compared to a hypothetical situation in the absence of R&D tax credits, recipients of tax credits show significantly better scores on most but not all performance indicators. We therefore conclude that tax credits lead to additional innovation output.

The importance of specific human capital, planning and familiarity in Dutch small firm ownership transfers: a seller's perspective  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study focuses on the transfer process and the importance of human capital and succession planning as firm resource from the seller's perspective. It further differentiates amongst two types of human capital specific and generic to predict the transfer duration, obtained price and satisfaction with the transfer. A representative dataset of 112 Dutch small firm owners, who sold their firm in 2005 and 2006, is analysed. Hierarchical multiple regressions show that specific human capital, like flexibility, social skills and market awareness predict transfer performance better than generic human capital like general education. Results also indicate that succession planning in business transfers is unrelated to the objective transfer performance indicators transfer duration and obtained price. Succession planning is strongly related to the subjective transfer performance indicator satisfaction. Results also show that familiarity between seller and buyer rather than kinship or family ties is a key predictor for all transfer performance indicators.

The glass ceiling in SMEs and its impact on firm managerialisation: a comparison between family and non-family SMEs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This article aims at comparing family and non-family SMEs with regard to the role of women in ownership, governance and management roles and its relation with the firm managerialisation. We conducted a quantitative deductive design and tested the hypotheses through a questionnaire survey of 313 SMEs in Italy. Findings reveal that family SMEs are a more favourable context for breaking through the glass ceiling. Results also show that in non-family SMEs managerial mechanisms are more relevant when women are involved in governance and managerial roles. On the contrary, in family SMEs, our findings do not outline an active role of women in favouring firm managerialisation.

Jobs and Renewable Energy Project  

SciTech Connect

Early in 2002, REPP developed the Jobs Calculator, a tool that calculates the number of direct jobs resulting from renewable energy development under RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standard) legislation or other programs to accelerate renewable energy development. The calculator is based on a survey of current industry practices to assess the number and type of jobs that will result from the enactment of a RPS. This project built upon and significantly enhanced the initial Jobs Calculator model by (1) expanding the survey to include other renewable technologies (the original model was limited to wind, solar PV and biomass co-firing technologies); (2) more precisely calculating the economic development benefits related to renewable energy development; (3) completing and regularly updating the survey of the commercially active renewable energy firms to determine kinds and number of jobs directly created; and (4) developing and implementing a technology to locate where the economic activity related to each type of renewable technology is likely to occur. REPP worked directly with groups in the State of Nevada to interpret the results and develop policies to capture as much of the economic benefits as possible for the state through technology selection, training program options, and outreach to manufacturing groups.

Permanent-magnet-less machine having an enclosed air gap  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A permanent magnet-less, brushless synchronous system includes a stator that generates a magnetic rotating field when sourced by an alternating current. An uncluttered rotor disposed within the magnetic rotating field is spaced apart from the stator to form an air gap relative to an axis of rotation. A stationary excitation core spaced apart from the uncluttered rotor by an axial air gap and a radial air gap substantially encloses the stationary excitation core. Some permanent magnet-less, brushless synchronous systems include stator core gaps to reduce axial flux flow. Some permanent magnet-less, brushless synchronous systems include an uncluttered rotor coupled to outer laminations. The quadrature-axis inductance may be increased in some synchronous systems. Some synchronous systems convert energy such as mechanical energy into electrical energy (e.g., a generator); other synchronous systems may convert any form of energy into mechanical energy (e.g., a motor).

Beneath the surface: The decline in gender injury gap  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Gender differences in the labor market are typically measured by the wage gap. In this paper, we investigate how extending the analysis to an additional job amenity, namely workplace safety, may shed new light on the evolution of gender differences. Our results show that focusing on one unique measure of the gender gap may provide a biased view of the actual progress of women in the labor market. In our data, a significant reduction in the wage gap has been accompanied by a relative increase in injury risk for some groups of workers, e.g. low-skilled female workers. The decreased gender wage gap for these workers does not necessarily imply an overall improvement in their labor market outcomes.

Human resource practices as engagement driver: an empirical investigation in Indian software development firms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The current study is amongst the first to delineate an empirical relationship between the human resource (HR) practices and employee engagement. Since HR practices are perceived as organisational intention, its influence on engagement, a much desired work attitude assumes great significance in the globalised business environment prevalent today. The study findings point to a positive and significant influence of high compensation and involvement in decision-making in propagating engagement amongst the workforce. However, gender was only found to moderate the relationship between involvement in decision-making and engagement. The study contributes towards enriching the existing literature available on employee engagement as well as on the influence of HR practices on employee work attitudes. Apart from that, it also recommends suitable managerial implications that can guide the information technology firms in India in gaining an engaged workforce.

VAT rebates and export performance in China: Firm-level evidence  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A destination-based VAT system without a complete export tax rebate is detrimental to a country's exports, while an increase in the VAT rebate rate helps reduce the negative effects. In this paper, we study the role of VAT rebates in affecting Chinese exports using firm-level panel data for 20002006. To address potential endogeneity, we rely on a quasi-natural policy experiment in 2004, when the fiscal conditions of local governments became important in determining the actual VAT rebate rates for exports. The empirical findings demonstrate significant and large effects of VAT rebates on export volume. On average, for each percentage point increase in the VAT rebate rate, the amount of exports increased by 13%, which translates into an additional $4.70 of exports for each $1 of export tax rebates paid.

Hydrogeologic Model for the Gable Gap Area, Hanford Site  

SciTech Connect

Gable Gap is a structural and topographic depression between Gable Mountain and Gable Butte within the central Hanford Site. It has a long and complex geologic history, which includes tectonic uplift synchronous with erosional downcutting associated with the ancestral Columbia River during both Ringold and Cold Creek periods, and by the later Ice Age (mostly glacial Lake Missoula) floods. The gap was subsequently buried and partially backfilled by mostly coarse-grained, Ice Age flood deposits (Hanford formation). Erosional remnants of both the Ringold Formation and Cold Creek unit locally underlie the high-energy flood deposits. A large window exists in the gap where confined basalt aquifers are in contact with the unconfined suprabasalt aquifer. Several paleochannels, of both Hanford and Ringold Formation age, were eroded into the basalt bedrock across Gable Gap. Groundwater from the Central Plateau presently moves through Gable Gap via one or more of these shallow paleochannels. As groundwater levels continue to decline in the region, groundwater flow may eventually be cut off through Gable Gap.

Barriers to solar process heat projects: Fifteen highly promising (but cancelled) projects  

SciTech Connect

We analyzed technical, economic, and institutional barriers encountered by the solar industry in penetrating the market of solar thermal systems as applied in industry, commerce, and government. The barriers discussed are not theoretical or developed by conducting marketing research surveys of potential users. Rather, they are barriers that precluded implementing actual solar projects for 15 ``highly promising`` prospective users. The efforts to determine their technical and economic feasibility were funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Process Heat (SPH) program. Each year, the SPH program conducts a prefeasibility studies activity -- an engineering assessment of the technical and economic feasibility of a solar system for a specific application for a specific end-user. These studies also assess institutional issues that impact the feasibility of the proposed project and develop an action plan for the project`s implementation. In FY 1991 and FY 1992, the program funded a total of 11 studies in which solar projects were investigated for 21 potential users. Of these 21 potential users, only three have made firm commitments to acquire solar systems, yielding a 14% success rate (decisions by three other companies are still pending). The low success rate is disappointing because the solar companies had complete freedom to select ``highly promising`` potential users. We therefore evaluated the reasons for the low success rate and the implications for market penetration.

Most pollutant emissions, including NO x , are lower in this process, compared to conventional pulverized coal combustion. However, laboratory and pilot-scale tests to date have shown a wide variation in the fractional reduction of NO x when adopting this technology, suggesting that further improvements in NO x reduction are possible, given a better understanding of the dominant routes of NO x production and destruction in these systems.
