Modeling of free electronic state density in hydrogenic plasmas based on nearest neighbor approximation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Most conventional atomic models in a plasma do not treat the effect of the plasma on the free-electron state density. Using a nearest neighbor approximation, the state densities in hydrogenic plasmas for both bound and free electrons were evaluated and the effect of the plasma on the atomic model (especially for the state density of the free electron) was studied. The model evaluates the electron-state densities using the potential distribution formed by the superposition of the Coulomb potentials of two ions. The potential from one ion perturbs the electronic state density on the other. Using this new model, one can evaluate the free-state density without making any ad-hoc assumptions. The resulting contours of the average ionization degree, given as a function of the plasma temperature and density, are shifted slightly to lower temperatures because of the effect of the increasing free-state density.

Matrix Product State and mean field solutions for one-dimensional systems can be found efficiently  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We consider the problem of approximating ground states of one-dimensional quantum systems within the two most common variational ansatzes, namely the mean field ansatz and Matrix Product States. We show that both for mean field and for Matrix Product States of fixed bond dimension, the optimal solutions can be found in a way which is provably efficient (i.e., scales polynomially). This implies that the corresponding variational methods can be in principle recast in a way which scales provably polynomially. Moreover, our findings imply that ground states of one-dimensional commuting Hamiltonians can be found efficiently.

Green's function method for single-particle resonant states in relativistic mean field theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Relativistic mean field theory is formulated with the Green's function method in coordinate space to investigate the single-particle bound states and resonant states on the same footing. Taking the density of states for free particles as a reference, the energies and widths of single-particle resonant states are extracted from the density of states without any ambiguity. As an example, the energies and widths for single-neutron resonant states in 120Sn are compared with those obtained by the scattering phase-shift method, the analytic continuation in the coupling constant approach, the real stabilization method, and the complex scaling method. Excellent agreements with these methods are found for the energies and widths of single-neutron resonant states.

Temporal Development of Ion Beam Mean Charge State in PulsedVacuum Arc Ion Sources  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Vacuum arc ion sources, commonly also known as "Mevva" ionsources, are used to generate intense pulsed metal ion beams. It is knownthat the mean charge state of the ion beam lies between 1 and 4,depending on cathode material, arc current, arc pulse duration, presenceor absence of magnetic field at the cathode, as well background gaspressure. A characteristic of the vacuum arc ion beam is a significantdecrease in ion charge state throughout the pulse. This decrease can beobserved up to a few milliseconds, until a "noisy" steady-state value isestablished. Since the extraction voltage is constant, a decrease in theion charge state has a proportional impact on the average ion beamenergy. This paper presents results of detailed investigations of theinfluence of arc parameters on the temporal development of the ion beammean charge state for a wide range of cathode materials. It is shown thatfor fixed pulse duration, the charge state decrease can be reduced bylower arc current, higher pulse repetition rate, and reduction of thedistance between cathode and extraction region. The latter effect may beassociated with charge exchange processes in the dischargeplasma.

Sensitivity of global tropical climate to land surface processes: Mean state and interannual variability  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This study examines the sensitivity of global tropical climate to land surface processes (LSP) using an atmospheric general circulation model both uncoupled (with prescribed SSTs) and coupled to an oceanic general circulation model. The emphasis is on the interactive soil moisture and vegetation biophysical processes, which have first order influence on the surface energy and water budgets. The sensitivity to those processes is represented by the differences between model simulations, in which two land surface schemes are considered: 1) a simple land scheme that specifies surface albedo and soil moisture availability, and 2) the Simplified Simple Biosphere Model (SSiB), which allows for consideration of interactive soil moisture and vegetation biophysical process. Observational datasets are also employed to assess the reality of model-revealed sensitivity. The mean state sensitivity to different LSP is stronger in the coupled mode, especially in the tropical Pacific. Furthermore, seasonal cycle of SSTs in the equatorial Pacific, as well as ENSO frequency, amplitude, and locking to the seasonal cycle of SSTs are significantly modified and more realistic with SSiB. This outstanding sensitivity of the atmosphere-ocean system develops through changes in the intensity of equatorial Pacific trades modified by convection over land. Our results further demonstrate that the direct impact of land-atmosphere interactions on the tropical climate is modified by feedbacks associated with perturbed oceanic conditions ("indirect effect" of LSP). The magnitude of such indirect effect is strong enough to suggest that comprehensive studies on the importance of LSP on the global climate have to be made in a system that allows for atmosphere-ocean interactions.

A formalism to evaluate the resonant states produced by two particles moving outside a closed shell core is presented. It is found that long lived two-body states (including bound states) are mostly determined by either bound single-particle states or by narrow single-particle resonances. However, they can be significantly affected by the continuum part of the spectrum.

Radiative Heat Transfer between Neighboring Particles  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The near-field interaction between two neighboring particles is known to produce enhanced radiative heat transfer. We advance in the understanding of this phenomenon by including the full electromagnetic particle response, heat exchange with the environment, and important radiative corrections both in the distance dependence of the fields and in the particle absorption coefficients. We find that crossed terms of electric and magnetic interactions dominate the transfer rate between gold and SiC particles, whereas radiative corrections reduce it by several orders of magnitude even at small separations. Radiation away from the dimer can be strongly suppressed or enhanced at low and high temperatures, respectively. These effects must be taken into account for an accurate description of radiative heat transfer in nanostructured environments.

Quantifying the relative contribution of the climate and direct human impacts on mean annual streamflow in the contiguous United States  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Climate change and human activities are known to have induced changes to hydrology. Quantifying the relative contribution of the impact of each factor on the hydrologic response of watersheds requires the use of some type of model. In this paper, a decomposition method based on the Budyko model is used to divide the relative contribution of climate and human on mean annual streamflow for 413 watersheds in the contiguous United States. The data of annual precipitation, runoff and potential evaporation of each of the watersheds are obtained from the international Model Parameter Estimation Project (MOPEX), which is often assumed to only include gages unaffected by human activities. The data is split in to two periods (1948-1970 and 1971-2003). The relative contributions of climate change and human activities to the observed change in mean annual streamflow between the two periods are estimated. Although climate change is found to impact annual streamflow more than human activities, the results show that assuming the dataset is unaffected by human activities is far unrealistic. Also climate and human induced changes are more stringent in arid regions where water is limited. The results are compared using four single-parameter functional forms and with previously published data.

Neighboring Valley in the String Landscape  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The observation in the universe of a small but positive vacuum energy strongly suggests, in the string landscape picture, that there will ultimately be a phase transition to an exactly supersymmetric universe. This ground state or "true vacuum" of the universe could be similar to the minimal supersymmetric standard model with all the susy breaking parameters set to zero. Alternatively, it might be similar to the prominent superstring theories with nine flat space dimensions or to the supersymmetric anti-deSitter model that seems to be equivalent to a conformal field theory. We propose that the dominant phenomenological feature of these potential future universes is the weakening of the Pauli principle due to Fermi-Bose degeneracy. Providing the phase transition occurs in the cosmologically near future, an exact supersymmetry could extend the life expectancy of intelligent civilizations far beyond what would be possible in the broken susy universe.

Mean-field analysis of ground state and low-lying electric dipole strength in $^{22}$C  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Properties of neutron-rich $^{22}$C are studied using the mean-field approach with Skyrme energy density functionals. Its weak binding and large total reaction cross section, which are suggested by recent experiments, are simulated by modifying the central part of Skyrme potential. Calculating $E1$ strength distribution by using the random-phase approximation, we investigate developments of low-lying electric dipole ($E1$) strength and a contribution of core excitations of $^{20}$C. As the neutron Fermi level approaches the zero energy threshold ($\\varepsilon_F >\\sim -1$ MeV), we find that the low-lying $E1$ strength exceeds the energy-weighted cluster sum rule, which indicates an importance of the core excitations with the $1d_{5/2}$ orbit.

The recently developed structure model that uses the generator coordinate method to perform configuration mixing of angular-momentum projected wave functions, generated by constrained self-consistent relativistic mean-field calculations for triaxial shapes (3DAMP+GCM), is applied in a systematic study of ground states and low-energy collective states in the even-even magnesium isotopes $^{20-40}$Mg. Results obtained using a relativistic point-coupling nucleon-nucleon effective interaction in the particle-hole channel, and a density-independent $\\delta$-interaction in the pairing channel, are compared to data and with previous axial 1DAMP+GCM calculations, both with a relativistic density functional and the non-relativistic Gogny force. The effects of the inclusion of triaxial degrees of freedom on the low-energy spectra and E2 transitions of magnesium isotopes are examined.

Relativistic Mean-Field Theory Equation of State of Neutron Star Matter and a Maxwellian Phase Transition to Strange Quark Matter  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The equation of state of neutron star matter is examined in terms of the relativistic mean-field theory, including a scalar-isovector $\\delta$-meson effective field. The constants of the theory are determined numerically so that the empirically known characteristics of symmetric nuclear matter are reproduced at the saturation density. The thermodynamic characteristics of both asymmetric nucleonic matter and $\\beta$-equilibrium hadron-electron $npe$-plasmas are studied. Assuming that the transition to strange quark matter is an ordinary first-order phase transition described by Maxwell's rule, a detailed study is made of the variations in the parameters of the phase transition owing to the presence of a $\\delta$-meson field. The quark phase is described using an improved version of the bag model, in which interactions between quarks are accounted for in a one-gluon exchange approximation. The characteristics of the phase transition are determined for various values of the bag parameter within the range $B\\in[60,120]$ $MeV/fm^{3}$ and it is shown that including a $\\delta$-meson field leads to a reduction in the phase transition pressure $P_{0}$ and in the concentrations $n_{N}$ and $n_{Q}$ at the phase transition point.

What Will the Neighbors Think? Building Large-Scale Science Projects Around the World  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

Public participation is an essential ingredient for turning the International Linear Collider into a reality. Wherever the proposed particle accelerator is sited in the world, its neighbors -- in any country -- will have something to say about hosting a 35-kilometer-long collider in their backyards. When it comes to building large-scale physics projects, almost every laboratory has a story to tell. Three case studies from Japan, Germany and the US will be presented to examine how community relations are handled in different parts of the world. How do particle physics laboratories interact with their local communities? How do neighbors react to building large-scale projects in each region? How can the lessons learned from past experiences help in building the next big project? These and other questions will be discussed to engage the audience in an active dialogue about how a large-scale project like the ILC can be a good neighbor.

Doorway states and billiards  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Whenever a distinct state is immersed in a sea of complicated and dense states, the strength of the distinct state, which we refer to as a doorway, is distributed in their neighboring states. We analyze this mechanism for 2-D billiards with different geometries. One of them is symmetric and integrable, another is symmetric but chaotic, and the third has a capricious form. The fact that the doorway-state mechanism is valid for such highly diverse cases, proves that it is robust.

New England Wind Forum: Can a Wind Project Be a Good Neighbor?  

Wind Powering America (EERE)

Can a Wind Project Be a Good Neighbor? Can a Wind Project Be a Good Neighbor? Compared to the production of energy from fossil fuels and hydroelectric (and its associated fuel procurement and delivery infrastructure, wastes, and dams), a properly located wind project can easily coexist with the community with minimal intrusion. The primary issues of potential concern include sound; shadow flicker; and radar, TV, and radio signal interference. These are examples of real impacts that can be mitigated most readily by increasing the distance between proposed projects and abutters, although achieving setbacks sufficient to completely mitigate all impacts is not always possible. These issues are typically addressed during the planning and development process of the wind project, during which the developer uses computerized tools and specialized consultants to evaluate impacts relative to the site and the surrounding community and determines whether measures are needed to minimize or mitigate any problems identified.

Square Ising model with second-neighbor interactions and the Ising chain in a transverse field  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We consider the thermal and critical behavior of the square Ising lattice with frustrated first- and second-neighbor interactions. A low-temperature domain-wall analysis including kinks and dislocations shows that there is a close relation between this classical model and the Hamiltonian of an Ising chain in a transverse field provided that the ratio of the next-nearesttonearest-neighbor coupling is close to 1/2. Due to the field-inversion symmetry of the Ising-chain Hamiltonian, the thermal properties of the classical system are symmetrical with respect to this coupling ratio. In the neighborhood of this regime critical exponents of the model turn out to belong to the Ising universality class. Our results are compared with previous Monte Carlo simulations.

Mechanisms of electromagnetic interference between electrical networks and neighboring metallic utilities  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper examines the mechanisms of electromagnetic interference between a power line and a neighboring pipeline. An electromagnetic field theory approach is used to carry out the study. First, the field theory approach is used to model the complete conductor network under consideration as is. The inductive, capacitive and conductive interference effects between all the elements in the network are simultaneously taken into account in one single step. The computed results are then used to develop a network model whereby the inductive, capacitive and conductive interference effects can be separated. This approach allows one to better understand the effects of each individual component and compare the field-theory (inductive) based results with those obtained from a circuit model approach. The effects of a typical mitigation system on the interference levels are also studied. The results presented in this paper clearly illustrate the mechanisms of electromagnetic interference and mitigation between electrical networks and neighboring metallic utilities.

Thermodynamics of ferrimagnetic double chains with z-z nearest-neighbor interactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We propose a general treatment involving the transfer-matrix method for solving ferrimagnetic double chains made up of two spin sublattices (s,s)N showing a z-z exchange coupling between nearest neighbors for several types of unit cell (for practical purpose we shall consider s=1/2). The whole physics of the infinite chain is contained in the largest-modulus eigenvalue v1 of the 44 transfer matrix. When s>1/2 we develop in the zero-field limit the secular polynomial (depending on v1 and the field B) up to the B2 term. By equating it to zero, we get the parallel magnetic susceptibility. When s=1/2 the secular polynomial is simpler, and it is possible to obtain closed forms by using a differentiation method. We study successively the influence of intrachain and interchain nearest-neighbor interaction on the magnetic behavior for two types of unit cell. Some results appear to be of interest for the discussion of weak-interacting-chain lattices. This model is then applied to the one-dimensional compound VO(HPO4)?4H2O, which exhibits (1/2,1/2)N double chains coupled by a zigzag interaction path and shows frustration effects.

Mean free path in nuclear matter from extended Brueckner theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The nucleon mean free path in nuclear matter is studied within the framework of the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approximation extended to incorporate ground-state correlations. The ground state particle-hole excitations give rise to a partial opening of the Fermi sphere and to an enhancement of the mean free path above the Fermi surface. A comparison with the classical limit and the mean free path in neutron matter is discussed along with a simple prescription to include the isospin dependence.

The effects of next nearest-neighbor exchange interaction on the magnetic properties in the one-dimensional Ising system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this work, we investigate the effects of next nearest-neighbor exchange interaction (J2) on the magnetic properties in the one-dimensional Ising system (1DIS) by using Kaneyoshi approach within the effective field theory for both ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic case. It is found that the magnetic properties strongly depend on the J2 in the 1DIS. The critical temperature of the 1DIS decreases as the J2 decreases and it has almost a stable value (Tc=0.571) when the J2 approaches to zero (but not zero). The coercive field point, remanence magnetization and the area of the hysteresis loop of the 1DIS decrease and the hysteresis curves of the 1DIS exhibit paramagnetic behaviors as the J2 decreases. The susceptibility of the 1DIS has a distinct peak at Tc. The magnetizations of the 1DIS are m1=m2=MT=1 in the ferromagnetic case, but they are m1=?1, m2=1 and MT=0 in the antiferromagnetic case at T=0. Moreover, the hysteresis curves of the m1 and m2 of the AFM 1DIS exhibit elliptical hysteresis behaviors with two distinct loops similar to the glasses for small next nearest-neighbor exchange interaction values (J2=0.0001, 0.001 and 0.01) and they have two different coercive field points far away from H=0.000.

ESTIMATING PHOTOMETRIC REDSHIFTS OF QUASARS VIA THE k-NEAREST NEIGHBOR APPROACH BASED ON LARGE SURVEY DATABASES  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We apply one of the lazy learning methods, the k-nearest neighbor (kNN) algorithm, to estimate the photometric redshifts of quasars based on various data sets from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS), and the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE; the SDSS sample, the SDSS-UKIDSS sample, the SDSS-WISE sample, and the SDSS-UKIDSS-WISE sample). The influence of the k value and different input patterns on the performance of kNN is discussed. kNN performs best when k is different with a special input pattern for a special data set. The best result belongs to the SDSS-UKIDSS-WISE sample. The experimental results generally show that the more information from more bands, the better performance of photometric redshift estimation with kNN. The results also demonstrate that kNN using multiband data can effectively solve the catastrophic failure of photometric redshift estimation, which is met by many machine learning methods. Compared with the performance of various other methods of estimating the photometric redshifts of quasars, kNN based on KD-Tree shows superiority, exhibiting the best accuracy.

Nearest Neighbor Averaging and its Effect on the Critical Level and Minimum Detectable Concentration for Scanning Radiological Survey Instruments that Perform Facility Release Surveys.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Through the SNL New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) program, several Sandia engineers worked with the Environmental Restoration Group (ERG) Inc. to verify and validate a novel algorithm used to determine the scanning Critical Level (L c ) and Minimum Detectable Concentration (MDC) (or Minimum Detectable Areal Activity) for the 102F scanning system. Through the use of Monte Carlo statistical simulations the algorithm mathematically demonstrates accuracy in determining the L c and MDC when a nearest-neighbor averaging (NNA) technique was used. To empirically validate this approach, SNL prepared several spiked sources and ran a test with the ERG 102F instrument on a bare concrete floor known to have no radiological contamination other than background naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM). The tests conclude that the NNA technique increases the sensitivity (decreases the L c and MDC) for high-density data maps that are obtained by scanning radiological survey instruments.

Technology development strategy for radical product meaning  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Product meaning is important for consumers. Although there exists a substantial amount of research concerning product meaning, the issue that has centred on the relationship between technology and meaning has remained. In this paper, we examine how the companies conducted their technology development aimed at improving product specifications or generating new meanings (improving product languages) for consumers. To this end, we propose a framework that describes an association between technologies and meanings. A case study within the plasma display panel (PDP) industry raises the possibility that mainstream research has shifted from a focus on specifications to a focus on languages. Further, as the growing diffusion rate of PDP, as well as a quantitative analysis of patents described in this paper, illustrate that Japanese manufacturer Panasonic has engaged in both technological and design research concurrently. Results show that technological research and design research are mutually dependent.

Consumption and meanings of team licensed merchandise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study examined the motives driving the purchase of team licensed merchandise and the meanings embedded in those products. Data from 135 attendees at two National Football League (USA) games revealed that the primary motives for the display of team licensed merchandise were fans' desire to publicly show their affiliation with the team and to express their support for the organisation, while the need to belong in the group of team supporters was also a strong motive. Furthermore, study participants overwhelmingly attached symbolic meanings to their possessions, emphasising social relationships and connectedness as well as elements of personal history. To a lesser extent, experiential meanings were attached to team licensed products. This study makes original contributions to the relatively narrow in scope research on sport licensing by exploring the functional, experiential and symbolic meanings that create value for those products and for their owners.

It has been shown that the phenomenon of persistence of diffracted lines in water suspensions of starch at different temperatures and also in water solutions of sucrose at different concentrations and constant temperature is related to the viscosity coefficient of the medium in terms of diffusion theory. Therefore we propose a method for the determination of viscosity coefficients by means of ultrasonics.

Quantum insulating states of F=2 cold atoms in optical lattices  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In this Letter we study various spin correlated insulating states of F=2 cold atoms in optical lattices. We find that the effective spin exchange interaction due to virtual hopping contains an {\\em octopole} coupling between two neighboring lattice sites. Depending on scattering lengths and numbers of particles per site the ground states are either rotationally invariant dimer or trimer Mott insulators or insulating states with various spin orders. Three spin ordered insulating phases are ferromagnetic, cyclic and nematic Mott insulators. We estimate the phase boundaries for states with different numbers of atoms per lattice site.

Mean field and collisions in hot nuclei  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Collisions between heavy nuclei produce nuclear matter of high density and excitation. Brueckner methods are used to calculate the momentum and temperature dependent mean field for nucleons propagating through nuclear matter during these collisions. The mean field is complex and the imaginary part is related to the ''two-body'' collision, while the real part relates to ''one-body'' collisions. A potential model for the N-N interactions is avoided by calculating the Reaction matrix directly from the T-matrix (i.e., N-N phase shifts) using a version of Brueckner theory previously published by the author. Results are presented for nuclear matter at normal and twice normal density and for temperatures up to 50 MeV. 23 refs., 7 figs.

Markov states of the quantum electromagnetic field  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A translation-invariant state (a quantum Markov chain) is associated with a nearest-neighbor interaction on a one-dimensional lattice by a new technique which provides closed forms for all the correlation functions. When applied to an Ising-type perturbation of a chain of harmonic oscillators, the dynamics can be computed explicitly. The resulting translation-invariant distribution is substantially different from the Planck distribution when the temperature and the coupling constant are large. For the evolution of the field operators on a given mode, we obtain a natural nonlinear generalization of the theorem which states that the free evolution of the field operators is obtained by second quantization of the classical free evolution.

Thus the system which is steered adiabatically, remains in the ground-state. The proposed physical implementation relies on a superconducting circuit composed of three SQUIDs and two superconducting islands with the charge states encoding the logical states. We obtain a universal set of single-qubit gates and implement a nontrivial two-qubit gate exploiting the mutual inductance between two neighboring circuits, allowing us to realize a fully geometric ground-state quantum computing. The introduced paradigm for the implementation of geometric quantum computing is expected to be robust against environmental effects.

Singlet generation in mixed-state quantum networks  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We study the generation of singlets in quantum networks with nodes initially sharing a finite number of partially entangled bipartite mixed states. We prove that singlets between arbitrary nodes in such networks can be created if and only if the initial states connecting the nodes have a particular form. We then generalize the method of entanglement percolation, previously developed for pure states, to mixed states of this form. As part of this, we find and compare different distillation protocols necessary to convert groups of mixed states shared between neighboring nodes of the network into singlets. In addition, we discuss protocols that only rely on local rules for the efficient connection of two remote nodes in the network via entanglement swapping. Further improvements of the success probability of singlet generation are developed by using particular forms of ''quantum preprocessing'' on the network. This includes generalized forms of entanglement swapping and we show how such strategies can be embedded in regular and hierarchical quantum networks.

Unambiguous pure state identification without classical knowledge  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We study how to unambiguously identify a given quantum pure state with one of the two reference pure states when no classical knowledge on the reference states is given but a certain number of copies of each reference quantum state are presented. By the unambiguous identification, we mean that we are not allowed to make a mistake but our measurement can produce an inconclusive result. Assuming the two reference states are independently distributed over the whole pure state space in a unitary invariant way, we determine the optimal mean success probability for an arbitrary number of copies of the reference states and a general dimension of the state space. It is explicitly shown that the obtained optimal mean success probability asymptotically approaches that of the unambiguous discrimination as the number of the copies of the reference states increases.

Mean and peak wind loads on heliostats  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Mean and peak wind loads on flat rectangular or circular heliostats were measured on models in a boundary layer wind tunnel which included an atmospheric surface layer simulation. Horizontal and vertical forces, moments about horizontal axes at the ground level and at the centerline of the heliostat, and the moment about the vertical axis through the heliostat center were measured. Results showed that loads are higher than predicted from results obtained in a uniform, low-turbulence flow due to the presence of turbulence. Reduced wind loads were demonstrated for heliostats within a field of heliostats and upper bound curves were developed to provide preliminary design coefficients.

Robust stationary distributed discord in Jordan-Wigner fermion system under perturbations of initial state  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We investigate the Jordan-Wigner fermion clusters with the stationary distributed pairwise quantum discord. Such clusters appear after the Jordan-Wigner transformation of a spin chain governed by the nearest-neighbor XY-Hamiltonian with the particular initial state having one polarized node. We show that the quantum discord stationarity in such systems is not destroyed by the "parasitic" polarization of at least two types. First type appears because the initial state with a single polarized node is hardly realizable experimentally, so that the low polarization of neighboring nodes must be taken into account. Second, the additional noise-polarization of all nodes is unavoidable. Although the stationarity may not be destroyed by perturbations of the above two types, the parasitic polarizations deform the distribution of the pairwise discord and may destroy the clusters of correlated fermions with equal pairwise discords. Such deformations are studied in this paper.

Identification marking by means of laser peening  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The invention is a method and apparatus for marking components by inducing a shock wave on the surface that results in an indented (strained) layer and a residual compressive stress in the surface layer. One embodiment of the laser peenmarking system rapidly imprints, with single laser pulses, a complete identification code or three-dimensional pattern and leaves the surface in a state of deep residual compressive stress. A state of compressive stress in parts made of metal or other materials is highly desirable to make them resistant to fatigue failure and stress corrosion cracking. This process employs a laser peening system and beam spatial modulation hardware or imaging technology that can be setup to impress full three dimensional patterns into metal surfaces at the pulse rate of the laser, a rate that is at least an order of magnitude faster than competing marking technologies.

The cycle and meaning of the existence of humankind  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A correlation has been made between the phases of various evolving natural systemsmagmatic, biological and social. The cycle of existence of these systems encompasses four stagesgrowth, internal development, stationary state (maturity), ageing. On the basis of the correlations it is shown that the modern period of the evolution of humankind corresponds to the end of the growth stage; the age of humankind currently corresponds roughly to the age of a 17-year-old man. The meaning of the existence of humankind as a planetary system is examined, and the need for an elaboration of a long-term strategic programme of the evolution of civilization for promoting fundamental transition from the growth stage to that of internal development is substantiated.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We consider a homogeneous two-dimensional Bose gas with repulsive dipole-dipole interactions. The ground-state equation of state, calculated using the diffusion Monte Carlo method, shows quantitative differences from the predictions of the commonly used Gross-Pitaevskii mean-field theory. The static structure factor, pair distribution function, and condensate fraction are calculated in a wide range of the gas parameter. Differences from mean-field theory are reflected in the frequency of the lowest breathing mode for harmonically trapped systems.

Direct Imaging of Antiferromagnetic Vortex States Print Direct Imaging of Antiferromagnetic Vortex States Print Magnetic materials are characterized by the ordering of electron spins, with nearest-neighbor spins parallel to each other in ferromagnetic (FM) materials and antiparallel to each other in antiferromagnetic (AFM) materials. As the size of a magnetic system is reduced to micron scale, it has been shown that the spins in an FM microstructure can curl around to form a magnetic vortex state. While there has been intensive activity in the study of vortex states in FM disks, there has been no direct observation of such states in an AFM microstructure, although theory predicts many interesting and unique properties for the AFM vortex state.

Passive heat transfer means for nuclear reactors  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved passive cooling arrangement is disclosed for maintaining adjacent or related components of a nuclear reactor within specified temperature differences. Specifically, heat pipes are operatively interposed between the components, with the vaporizing section of the heat pipe proximate the hot component operable to cool it and the primary condensing section of the heat pipe proximate the other and cooler component operable to heat it. Each heat pipe further has a secondary condensing section that is located outwardly beyond the reactor confinement and in a secondary heat sink, such as air ambient the containment, that is cooler than the other reactor component. Means such as shrouding normally isolated the secondary condensing section from effective heat transfer with the heat sink, but a sensor responds to overheat conditions of the reactor to open the shrouding, which thereby increases the cooling capacity of the heat pipe. By having many such heat pipes, an emergency passive cooling system is defined that is operative without electrical power.

Measuring the Mean and Scatter of the X-ray Luminosity -- Optical Richness Relation for maxBCG Galaxy Clusters  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We interpret and model the statistical weak lensing measurements around 130,000 groups and clusters of galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey presented by Sheldon et al. (2007). We present non-parametric inversions of the 2D shear profiles to the mean 3D cluster density and mass profiles in bins of both optical richness and cluster i-band luminosity. Since the mean cluster density profile is proportional to the cluster-mass correlation function, the mean profile is spherically symmetric by the assumptions of large-scale homogeneity and isotropy. We correct the inferred 3D profiles for systematic effects, including non-linear shear and the fact that cluster halos are not all precisely centered on their brightest galaxies. We also model the measured cluster shear profile as a sum of contributions from the brightest central galaxy, the cluster dark matter halo, and neighboring halos. We infer the relations between mean cluster virial mass and optical richness and luminosity over two orders of magnitude in cluster mass; the virial mass at fixed richness or luminosity is determined with a precision of {approx} 13% including both statistical and systematic errors. We also constrain the halo concentration parameter and halo bias as a function of cluster mass; both are in good agreement with predictions from N-body simulations of LCDM models. The methods employed here will be applicable to deeper, wide-area optical surveys that aim to constrain the nature of the dark energy, such as the Dark Energy Survey, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope and space-based surveys.

High spin states in 93Sr

Twenty-one ? transitions in 93Sr were identified from ?-?-? coincidences in the spontaneous fission of 252Cf starting with the previously known three transitions in 93Sr. The level structure of this nucleus is interpreted in part as arising from the weak coupling of the 1d5/2 neutron hole to the yrast states of the 94Sr core. We have tried to give a quantitative description of the properties of 93Sr by performing a shell-model study in which we assume that 88Sr is a closed core. In this study we have also considered the neighboring isotopes 90,92,94Sr. The calculated spectra have been compared with the experimental data.

Mean Field Theory of Josephson Junction Arrays with Charge Frustration  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Using the path integral approach, we provide an explicit derivation of the equation for the phase boundary for quantum Josephson junction arrays with offset charges and non-diagonal capacitance matrix. For the model with nearest neighbor capacitance matrix and uniform offset charge $q/2e=1/2$, we determine, in the low critical temperature expansion, the most relevant contributions to the equation for the phase boundary. We explicitly construct the charge distributions on the lattice corresponding to the lowest energies. We find a reentrant behavior even with a short ranged interaction. A merit of the path integral approach is that it allows to provide an elegant derivation of the Ginzburg-Landau free energy for a general model with charge frustration and non-diagonal capacitance matrix. The partition function factorizes as a product of a topological term, depending only on a set of integers, and a non-topological one, which is explicitly evaluated.

Rotating Bose-Einstein condensates: Closing the gap between exact and mean-field solutions  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

When a Bose-Einstein condensed cloud of atoms is given some angular momentum, it forms vortices arranged in structures with a discrete rotational symmetry. For these vortex states, the Hilbert space of the exact solution separates into a "primary" space related to the mean-field Gross-Pitaevskii solution and a "complementary" space including the corrections beyond mean-field. Considering a weakly-interacting Bose-Einstein condensate of harmonically-trapped atoms, we demonstrate how this separation can be used to close the conceptual gap between exact solutions for systems with only a few atoms and the thermodynamic limit for which the mean-field is the correct leading-order approximation. Although we illustrate this approach for the case of weak interactions, it is expected to be more generally valid.

A mean field theory for the cold quark gluon plasma applied to stellar structure  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An equation of state based on a mean-field approximation of QCD is used to describe the cold quark gluon plasma and also to study the structure of compact stars. We obtain stellar masses compatible with the pulsar PSR J1614-2230 that was determined to have a mass of (1.97 {+-} 0.04 M{sub Circled-Dot-Operator }), and the corresponding radius around 10-11 km.

Measuring the mean value of vibrational observables in trapped ion systems  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The theoretical foundations of a new general approach to the measurement problem of vibrational observables in trapped ion systems is reported. The method rests upon the introduction of a simple vibronic coupling structure appropriately conceived to link the internal ionic state measurement outcomes to the mean value of a motional variable of interest. Some applications are provided and discussed in detail, bringing to light the feasibility and the wide potentiality of the proposal.

Towards a nonequilibrium Green's function description of nuclear reactions: One-dimensional mean-field dynamics  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Research Highlights: > Dynamics of central nuclear reactions. > Nonequilibrium Green's functions and Kadanoff-Baym formalism. > Adiabatic switching on of interactions. > Mean-field time evolution of nuclear slabs. > Off-diagonal spatial structure of a collision density matrix. - Abstract: Nonequilibrium Green's function methods allow for an intrinsically consistent description of the evolution of quantal many-body body systems, with inclusion of different types of correlations. In this paper, we focus on the practical developments needed to build a Green's function methodology for nuclear reactions. We start out by considering symmetric collisions of slabs in one dimension within the mean-field approximation. We concentrate on two issues of importance for actual reaction simulations. First, the preparation of the initial state within the same methodology as for the reaction dynamics is demonstrated by an adiabatic switching on of the mean-field interaction, which leads to the mean-field ground state. Second, the importance of the Green's function matrix-elements far away from the spatial diagonal is analyzed by a suitable suppression process that does not significantly affect the evolution of the elements close to the diagonal. The relative lack of importance of the far-away elements is tied to system expansion. We also examine the evolution of the Wigner function and verify quantitatively that erasing of the off-diagonal elements corresponds to averaging out of the momentum-space details in the Wigner function.

Harmonic mean, the Gamma factor and Speed of Light

The relationship between the harmonic mean and special relativity is concisely elucidated. The arguments in favor and against SRT are explored. It is shown that the ratio of the speed of light to the harmonic mean of the onward and return speeds of light in a moving frame under Newtonian mechanics, when equitably distributed between space and time as a correction, leads to the Lorentz transformation. This correction implies an apparent contraction of objects and time dilation. However, the symmetry of the onward and inverse transformations give a different meaning to the gamma factor

Antiferromagnetic state in bilayer graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Motivated by the recent experiment of Velasco Jr. et al. [J. Velasco Jr. et al., Nat. Nanotechnology 7, 156 (2012)], we develop a mean-field theory of the interaction-induced antiferromagnetic (AF) state in bilayer graphene at charge neutrality point at arbitrary perpendicular magnetic field B. We demonstrate that the AF state can persist at all B. At higher B, the state continuously crosses over to the AF phase of the ?=0 quantum Hall ferromagnet, recently argued to be realized in the insulating ?=0 state. The mean-field quasiparticle gap is finite at B=0 and grows with increasing B, becoming quasilinear in the quantum Hall regime, in accord with the reported behavior of the transport gap. By adjusting the two free parameters of the model, we obtain a simultaneous quantitative agreement between the experimental and theoretical values of the key parameters of the gap dependenceits zero-field value and slope at higher fields. Our findings suggest that the insulating state observed in bilayer graphene in Ref. 1 is antiferromagnetic (canted, once the Zeeman effect is taken into account) at all magnetic fields.

Determination of fission rate by mean last passage time  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The mean last passage time is introduced instead of the mean first passage time for determining the decay rate of a nucleus after induced fission. The stationary fission rate calculated by the inverse of the mean last passage time at the saddle point is in agreement with the result of Langevin simulations and better than that of the mean first passing time at the scission point. In particular, we take into account the backstreaming effect where test particles pass over the potential barrier multiple times. It is shown that the oscillating time of a hot fissioning system around the saddle point is the longest one in time scales of the fission, thus more neutrons might be emitted during this period.

Dynamics of polymers: A mean-field theory  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We derive a general mean-field theory of inhomogeneous polymer dynamics; a theory whose form has been speculated and widely applied, but not heretofore derived. Our approach involves a functional integral representation of a Martin-Siggia-Rose (MSR) type description of the exact many-chain dynamics. A saddle point approximation to the generating functional, involving conditions where the MSR action is stationary with respect to a collective density field ? and a conjugate MSR response field ?, produces the desired dynamical mean-field theory. Besides clarifying the proper structure of mean-field theory out of equilibrium, our results have implications for numerical studies of polymer dynamics involving hybrid particle-field simulation techniques such as the single-chain in mean-field method.

Physical and colloquial meanings of the term work  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Physicists are often apologetic about the difference between the physical and colloquial meanings of the term work particularly in situations in which a lot of effort is involved but nothing is moved so no work is done in the physical sense. I argue that there is no need to be apologetic. Many words in mechanics have different physical and colloquial meanings. In the sense that work applies to output rather than input its physical meaning is closer to the colloquial meaning than many other terms in mechanics. A review of the history shows that force distance was used to refer to the output of engines since the early eighteenth century. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries several terms were used to denote force distance but none became widespread and work quickly became the preferred term after it was suggested by G. Coriolis in 1829.

Entanglement distillation by means of k-extendible maps  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

It is known that from entangled states which have positve partial transpose it is not possible to distill maximally entangled state by local operations and classical communication (LOCC). A long-standing problem is whether all states with non-positive partial transpose can be distilled. In this paper we attack this question using a larger class of operations than LOCC operations. Namely, we consider k-extendible operations - those, whose Choi-Jamiolkowski state is k-extendible. We obtain, in particular, that this class is unexpectedly powerful - e.g. capable of distilling even completely product states. We also perform numerical studies of distillation of Werner states by those maps, which imply, that if we raise the extension index k in parallel with raising the numebr of copies, they are not that powerful anymore.

Nuclear matrix elements in neutrinoless double beta decay: beyond mean-field covariant density functional theory  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We report a systematic study of nuclear matrix elements (NMEs) in neutrinoless double-beta decays with state-of-the-art beyond mean-field covariant density functional theory. The dynamic effects of particle-number and angular-momentum conservations as well as quadrupole shape fluctuations are taken into account with projections and generator coordinate method for both initial and final nuclei. The full relativistic transition operator is adopted to calculate the NMEs which are found to be consistent with the results of previous beyond non-relativistic mean-field calculation based on a Gogny force with the exception of $^{150}$Nd. Our study shows that the total NMEs can be well approximated by the pure axial-vector coupling term, the calculation of which is computationally much cheaper than that of full terms.

Nearest neighbor Markov dynamics on Macdonald processes  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Macdonald processes are certain probability measures on two-dimensional arrays of interlacing particles introduced by Borodin and Corwin (arXiv:1111.4408 [math.PR]). They are defined in terms of nonnegative specializations of the Macdonald symmetric functions and depend on two parameters (q,t), where 0Macdonald processes. The classification unites known examples of such dynamics and also yields many new ones. When t = 0, one dynamics leads to a new integrable interacting particle system on the one-dimensional lattice, which is a q-deformation of the PushTASEP (= long-range TASEP). When q = t, the Macdonald processes become the Schur processes of Okounkov and Reshetikhin (arXiv:math/0107056 [math.CO]). In this degeneration, we discover new Robinson--Schensted-type correspondences between words and pairs of Young tableaux that govern some of our dynamics.

Local Quantum Pure-state Identification without Classical Knowledge  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Suppose we want to distinguish two quantum pure states. We consider the case in which no classical knowledge on the two states is given and only a pair of samples of the two states is available. This problem is called quantum pure-state identification problem. Our task is to optimize the mean identification success probability, which is averaged over an independent unitary invariant distribution of the two reference states. In this paper, the two states are assumed bipartite states which are generally entangled. The question is whether the maximum mean identification success probability can be attained by means of an LOCC (Local Operations and Classical Communication) measurement scheme. We will show that this is possible by constructing a POVM which respects the conditions of LOCC.

Nuclear Symmetry Energy in Relativistic Mean Field Theory  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The Physical origin of the nuclear symmetry energy is studied within the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory. Based on the nuclear binding energies calculated with and without mean isovector potential for several isobaric chains we conform earlier Skyrme-Hartree-Fock result that the nuclear symmetry energy strength depends on the mean level spacing $\\epsilon (A)$ and an effective mean isovector potential strength $\\kappa (A)$. A detaied analysis of isospin dependence of the two components contributing to the nuclear symmetry energy reveals a quadratic dependence due to the mean-isoscalar potential, $\\sim\\epsilon T^2$, and, completely unexpectedly, the presence of a strong linear component $\\sim\\kappa T(T+1+\\epsilon/\\kappa)$ in the isovector potential. The latter generates a nuclear symmetry energy in RMF theory that is proportional to $E_{sym}\\sim T(T+1)$ at variance to the non-relativistic calculation. The origin of the linear term in RMF theory needs to be further explored.

We present photocurrents at several temperatures carried out in a bulk heterojunction photovoltaic device. To explain the results, we developed an analytical model assuming non-injecting contacts and equal mean free paths for electrons and holes. The fitting of the equation to the experimental data provided the temperature evolution of the charge transfer state dissociation probability (P) and ??, where ? is the charge carrier mobility and ? is the charge carrier lifetime. The photocurrent expression tends towards a saturation value of eGPL for high electric fields, where GP is the generation rate of charge carriers.

Modeling Stakeholder/Value Dependency through Mean Failure Cost  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In an earlier series of works, Boehm et al. discuss the nature of information system dependability and highlight the variability of system dependability according to stakeholders. In a recent paper, the dependency patterns of this model are analyzed. In our recent works, we presented a stakeholder dependent quantitative security model, where we quantify security for a given stakeholder by the mean of the loss incurred by the stakeholder as a result of security threats. We show how this mean can be derived from the security threat configuration (represented as a vector of probabilities that reflect the likelihood of occurrence of the various security threats). We refer to our security metric as MFC, for Mean Failure Cost. In this paper, we analyze Boehm's model from the standpoint of the proposed metric, and show whether, to what extent, and how our metric addresses the issues raised by Boehm's Stakeholder/Value definition of system dependability.

Evolution of Magnetic Oxygen States in Sr-Doped LaCoO3  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Magnetism in La1-xSrxCoO3 as a function of doping is investigated with x-ray absorption spectroscopy and x-ray magnetic circular dicrhoism at the O K edge, and corresponding first principles electronic structure calculations. For small x, the spectra are consistent with the formation of ferromagnetic clusters occurring within a nonmagnetic insulating matrix. Sr-induced, magnetic O-hole states form just above EF and grow with increasing Sr doping. Density functional calculations for x=0 yield a nonmagnetic ground state with the observed rhombohedral distortion and indicates that doping introduces holes at the Fermi level in magnetic states with significant O 2p and Co t2g character for the undistorted pseudocubic structure. Supercell calculations show stronger magnetism on oxygen atoms having more Sr neighbors.

The optimal bound of quantum erasure with limited means  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In practical applications of quantum information science, quantum systems can have non-negligible interactions with the environment, and this generally degrades the power of quantum protocols as it introduces noise. Counteracting this by appropriately measuring the environment (and therefore projecting its state) would require access all the necessary degrees of freedom, which in practice can be far too hard to achieve. To better understand one's limitations, we calculate the upper bound of optimal quantum erasure (i.e. the highest recoverable visibility, or "coherence"), when erasure is realistically limited to an accessible subspace of the whole environment. In the particular case of a two-dimensional accessible environment, the bound is given by the sub-fidelity of two particular states of the \\emph{inaccessible} environment, which opens a new window into understanding the connection between correlated systems. We also provide an analytical solution for a three-dimensional accessible environment. This result provides also an interesting operational interpretation of sub-fidelity. We end with a statistical analysis of the expected visibility of an optimally erased random state and we find that 1) if one picks a random pure state of 2 qubits, there is an optimal measurement that allows one to distill a 1-qubit state with almost 90\\% visibility and 2) if one picks a random pure state of 2 qubits in an inaccessible environment, there is an optimal measurement that allows one to distill a 1-qubit state with almost twice its initial visibility.

Mean excitation energies in the nuclear muon capture  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The parametrization of the total muon capture rates in terms of a mean nuclear excitation energy E?, proposed in a recent letter of Christillin, Dellafiore, and Rosa-Clot (CDR), is examined. We show that this parametrization ignores the importance of the allowed transitions in light nuclei and fails to reproduce the experimentally observed trend of the T> giant resonance energy as a function of nuclear mass number. The removal of contributions due to higher multipoles in heavier nuclei aggravates this discrepancy. The failure of E?, extracted by CDR, to correspond to physically meaningful nuclear excitation energies in heavier nuclei is attributable to the intrinsic arbitrariness in its definition, and to the oversimplifying assumption of the nuclear Hamiltonian to be a sum of kinetic energy and Wigner potential alone. A first-order improvement of the Primakoff approximation is discussed.NUCLEAR REACTIONS ?-+A(N,Z)?v+A(N+1,Z-1); muon capture; closure approximation; mean nuclear excitation energies.

Means and method of detection in chemical separation procedures  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A means and method for indirect detection of constituent components of a mixture separated in a chemical separation process. Fluorescing ions are distributed across the area in which separation of the mixture will occur to provide a generally uniform background fluorescence intensity. For example, the mixture is comprised of one or more charged analytes which displace fluorescing ions where its constituent components separate to. Fluorescing ions of the same charge as the charged analyte components cause a displacement. The displacement results in the location of the separated components having a reduced fluorescence intensity to the remainder of the background. Detection of the lower fluorescence intensity areas can be visually, by photographic means and methods, or by automated laser scanning.

A relativistic mean field study of multi-strange system

We study the binding energies, radii, single-particle energies, spin-orbit potential and density profile for multi-strange hypernuclei in the range of light mass to superheavy region within the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory. The stability of multi-strange hypernuclei as a function of introduced hyperons ($\\Lambda$ and $\\Sigma$) is investigated. The neutron, lambda and sigma mean potentials are presented for light to superheavy hypernuclei. The inclusion of hyperons affects the nucleon, lambda and sigma spin-orbit potentials significantly. The bubble structure of nuclei and corresponding hypernuclei is studied. The nucleon and lambda halo structure are also investigated. A large class of bound multi-strange systems formed from the combination of nucleons and hyperons (n, p, $\\Lambda$, $\\Sigma^+$ and n, p, $\\Lambda$, $\\Sigma^-$) is suggested in the region of superheavy hypernuclei which might be stable against the strong decay. These multi-strange systems might be produced in heavy-ion reactions.

The Lagrangian density of relativistic mean-field (RMF) theory with non-linear derivative (NLD) interactions is applied to isospin asymmetric nuclear matter. We study the symmetry energy and the density and energy dependences of nucleon selfenergies. At high baryon densities a soft symmetry energy is obtained. The energy dependence of the isovector selfenergy suppresses the Lane-type optical potential with increasing energy and predicts a $\\rho$-meson induced mass splitting between protons and neutrons in isospin asymmetric matter.

Sampling Within k-Means Algorithm to Cluster Large Datasets  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Due to current data collection technology, our ability to gather data has surpassed our ability to analyze it. In particular, k-means, one of the simplest and fastest clustering algorithms, is ill-equipped to handle extremely large datasets on even the most powerful machines. Our new algorithm uses a sample from a dataset to decrease runtime by reducing the amount of data analyzed. We perform a simulation study to compare our sampling based k-means to the standard k-means algorithm by analyzing both the speed and accuracy of the two methods. Results show that our algorithm is significantly more efficient than the existing algorithm with comparable accuracy. Further work on this project might include a more comprehensive study both on more varied test datasets as well as on real weather datasets. This is especially important considering that this preliminary study was performed on rather tame datasets. Also, these datasets should analyze the performance of the algorithm on varied values of k. Lastly, this paper showed that the algorithm was accurate for relatively low sample sizes. We would like to analyze this further to see how accurate the algorithm is for even lower sample sizes. We could find the lowest sample sizes, by manipulating width and confidence level, for which the algorithm would be acceptably accurate. In order for our algorithm to be a success, it needs to meet two benchmarks: match the accuracy of the standard k-means algorithm and significantly reduce runtime. Both goals are accomplished for all six datasets analyzed. However, on datasets of three and four dimension, as the data becomes more difficult to cluster, both algorithms fail to obtain the correct classifications on some trials. Nevertheless, our algorithm consistently matches the performance of the standard algorithm while becoming remarkably more efficient with time. Therefore, we conclude that analysts can use our algorithm, expecting accurate results in considerably less time.

Test for the zero mean hypothesis in cosmology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

One working hypothesis on which analyses of cosmological data are based is the zero ensemble mean hypothesis, which is related to the statistical homogeneity of cosmological perturbations. This hypothesis, however, should be tested by observational data in the current era of precision cosmology. Herein, we test the hypothesis by analyzing recent, foreground-reduced cosmic microwave background (CMB) maps, combining the spherical harmonic coefficients of the masked CMB temperature anisotropies in such a way that the combined variables can be treated as statistically independent samples. We find evidence against the zero mean hypothesis in two particular ranges of multipoles, with significance levels of 2.5? and 3.1? in the multipole ranges of ??6186 and 213256, respectively, for both the Planck and Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe maps. The latter signal is consistent with our previous result found by using brute-force MonteCarlo simulations. However, within the method employed in this paper we conclude that the zero mean hypothesis is consistent with the current CMB data on the basis of Stouffers weighted Z statistics, which takes multiple testing into account.

Communication: Electronic and transport properties of molecular junctions under a finite bias: A dual mean field approach  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We show that when a molecular junction is under an external bias, its properties cannot be uniquely determined by the total electron density in the same manner as the density functional theory for ground state properties. In order to correctly incorporate bias-induced nonequilibrium effects, we present a dual mean field (DMF) approach. The key idea is that the total electron density together with the density of current-carrying electrons are sufficient to determine the properties of the system. Two mean fields, one for current-carrying electrons and the other one for equilibrium electrons can then be derived. Calculations for a graphene nanoribbon junction show that compared with the commonly used ab initio transport theory, the DMF approach could significantly reduce the electric current at low biases due to the non-equilibrium corrections to the mean field potential in the scattering region.

Remote creation of a one-qubit mixed state through a short homogeneous spin-1/2 chain  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We consider a method of remote mixed state creation of a one-qubit subsystem (receiver) in a spin-1/2 chain governed by the nearest-neighbor XY Hamiltonian. Owing to the evolution of the chain along with the variable local unitary transformation of the one- or two-qubit sender, a large variety of receiver states can be created during a specific time interval starting with a fixed initial state of the whole quantum system. These states form the creatable region of the receiver's state-space. It is remarkable that, with a two-qubit sender, a large creatable region may be covered at a properly fixed time instant t0 using just the variable local unitary transformation of the sender. In this case we have completely local control of remote state creation. In general, for a given initial state, there are some receiver states that may not be created using the above tool. These states form the unavailable region. In turn, this unavailable region might be the creatable region of another sender. Thus, in future, we have a way to share the whole receiver's state-space among the creatable regions of several senders. The effectiveness of remote state creation is characterized by the density function of the creatable region.

Vibrational shortcut to the mean-first-passage-time problem  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

What is the average time a random walker takes to get from A to B on a fractal structure and how does this mean time scale with the size of the system and the distance between source and target? We take a nonprobabilistic approach toward this problem and show how the solution is readily obtained using an analysis of thermal vibrations on fractals. Invariance under scaling and continuity with respect to the spectral dimension are shown to be emergent properties of the solution obtained via vibrational analysis. Our result emphasizes the duality between diffusion and vibrations on fractal structures. Applications to biological systems are discussed.

Inspired by the bridge pioneered by Guerra among statistical mechanics on lattice and analytical mechanics on 1+1 continuous Euclidean space-time, we built a self-consistent method to solve for the thermodynamics of mean-field models defined on lattice, whose order parameters self average. We show the whole procedure by analyzing in full details the simplest test case, namely the Curie-Weiss model. Further we report some applications also to models whose order parameters do not self-average, by using the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick spin glass as a guide.

3He- and 4He-induced nuclear fission - a test of the transition state method  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Fission in 3He and 4He induced reactions at excitation energies between the fission barrier and 140 MeV has been investigated. Twentythree fission excitation functions of various compound nuclei in different mass regions are shown to scale exactly according to the transition state prediction once the shell effects are accounted for. New precise measurements of excitation functions in a mass region where shell effects are very strong, allow one to test the predictions with an even higher accuracy. The fact that no deviations from the transition state method have been observed within the experimentally investigated excitation energy regime allows one to assign limits for the fission transient time. The precise measurement of fission excitation functions of neighboring isotopes enables us to experimentally estimate the first chance fission probability. Even if only first chance fission is investigated, no evidence for fission transient times larger than 30 zs can be found.

Second, these vectors are used as the input to a Kohonen network, which organizes them topologically. This organization, in turn, generates term clusters arranged on a grid, so that each term is not only related to the others in its own cluster but also to those of neighboring clusters.

Meaning of reaction orders in polymer:fullerene solar cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Nongeminate recombination in polymer:fullerene solar cells is frequently characterized using transient optoelectronic measurements that allow the determination of recombination rates, charge carrier lifetimes, and average charge carrier concentrations as a function of voltage. These data are often interpreted in terms of an empirical reaction order defining how recombination depends on measured charge density. In polymer:fullerene solar cells, the empirical reaction orders are often considerably larger than 2, which had previously been explained in terms of the nonlinear relationship between mobile and trapped charge carriers in the presence of an exponential tail of localized states. Here, we show that experimentally determined reaction orders depend not only on the shape of the density of states but also on the spatial distribution of carriers. In particular, in solar cells with small depletion regions due to small active layer thicknesses or due to large unintentional background doping of the polymers, the reaction order can assume values that are much larger than the value expected from the shape of the density of states alone.

Tru-ly Clean - What Does It Mean?  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The evolution and genesis of the definition of transuranic waste (known as TRU) and its application to the cleanup criteria applied to soils contaminated with transuranics, specifically plutonium, has been a matter of discussion at contaminated sites in the United States and elsewhere. Cleanup decisions and the processes that led up to those decisions have varied at several plutonium contaminated sites within the United States and without the pacific region. The sites with radionuclide soil action levels include Bikini and Enewetak Atolls, Republic of the Marshall Islands; Johnston Atoll, Hawaii; the Hanford Site in Washington State; the Nevada Test Site; the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site in Colorado; the Chariot Site in north Alaska; and the Maralinga Site in Australia. The soil-action level developed for Rocky Flats by the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for plutonium is one of the higher soil-action levels approved by regulatory agencies that is considered protective for future use of land at a cleanup site. The Republic of the Marshall Islands has adopted a relatively conservative cleanup standard to accommodate the subsistence lifestyle of the islanders, while the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site has been transferred to the U.S. Department of the Interior to be used as a fish and wildlife refuge, a land use that resulted in a less conservative plutonium soil cleanup level.

Customer-perceived value of e-financial services: a means-end approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The financial services sector has recently undergone changes unprecedented in its history. Understanding customers' needs and values has become more important for financial institutions than ever before, not only due to the changing environment but also because of changed customer behaviour. This study explores the customer-perceived value of two e-financial services, namely electronic fund transfer service and internet brokerage service. This is done by using a means-end approach. It is a qualitative in-depth interviewing method that is used for explaining how product or service attributes facilitate consumers' achievement of desired end-states of being. The results indicate how different electronic services create value for customers in service consumption. The findings provide banking executives with a better understanding of what kind of value customers perceive in the consumption of different e-financial services. The results indicate similarities and differences in the customer-perceived value between the services explored.

Hugoniot and mean ionization of laser-shocked Ge-doped plastic  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Pressure, density, temperature, and reflectivity measurements along the principal Hugoniot of Ge-doped plastics used in Inertial Confinement Fusion capsules surrogates were obtained to pressures reaching up to 7 Mbar and compared to Quotidian Equation of State models. The experiment was performed using the GEKKO XII laser at the Institute of Laser Engineering at Osaka University in Japan. High precision measurements of pressure and density were obtained using a quartz standard and found to be in good agreement with theoretical Hugoniot curves. Modeling of reflectivity measurements show that shocked samples can be described as poor metals and that mean ionization calculated within the frame of QEOS is overestimated. Similarly, shock temperatures were found to be below theoretical Hugoniot curves.

Linear response theory and neutrino mean free path using Brussels-Montreal Skyrme functionals  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The Brussels-Montreal Skyrme functionals have been successful to describe properties of both finite nuclei and infinite homogeneous nuclear matter. In their latest version, these functionals have been equipped with two extra density-dependent terms in order to reproduce simultaneously ground state properties of nuclei and infinite nuclear matter properties while avoiding at the same time the arising of ferromagnetic instabilities. In the present article, we extend our previous results of the linear response theory to include such extra terms at both zero and finite temperature in pure neutron matter. The resulting formalism is then applied to derive the neutrino mean free path. The predictions from the Brussels-Montreal Skyrme functionals are compared with ab-initio methods.

Reliability analysis of solar photovoltaic system using hourly mean solar radiation data  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper presents the hourly mean solar radiation and standard deviation as inputs to simulate the solar radiation over a year. Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) technique is applied and MATLAB program is developed for reliability analysis of small isolated power system using solar photovoltaic (SPV). This paper is distributed in two parts. Firstly various solar radiation prediction methods along with hourly mean solar radiation (HMSR) method are compared. The comparison is carried on the basis of predicted electrical power generation with actual power generated by SPV system. Estimation of solar photovoltaic power using HMSR method is close to the actual power generated by SPV system. The deviation in monsoon months is due to the cloud cover. In later part of the paper various reliability indices are obtained by HMSR method using MCS technique. Load model used is IEEE-RTS. Reliability indices, additional load hours (ALH) and additional power (AP) reduces exponentially with increase in load indicates that a SPV source will offset maximum fuel when all of its generated energy is utilized. Fuel saving calculation is also investigated. Case studies are presented for Sagardeep Island in West Bengal state of India. (author)

The following figures are shown as an example for Sn nanoparticles indicates hilly applicable models for nanoparticles radius larger than 3 nm. Highlights: ? A model for a size dependent mean bonding length is derived. ? The size dependent melting point of nanoparticles is modified. ? The bulk model for lattice thermal expansion is successfully used on nanoparticles. -- Abstract: A model, based on the ratio number of surface atoms to that of its internal, is derived to calculate the size dependence of lattice volume of nanoscaled materials. The model is applied to Si, Sn and Au nanoparticles. For Si, that the lattice volume is increases from 20 ?{sup 3} for bulk to 57 ?{sup 3} for a 2 nm size nanocrystals. A model, for calculating melting point of nanoscaled materials, is modified by considering the effect of lattice volume. A good approach of calculating size-dependent melting point begins from the bulk state down to about 2 nm diameter nanoparticle. Both values of lattice volume and melting point obtained for nanosized materials are used to calculate lattice thermal expansion by using a formula applicable for tetrahedral semiconductors. Results for Si, change from 3.7 10{sup ?6} K{sup ?1} for a bulk crystal down to a minimum value of 0.1 10{sup ?6} K{sup ?1} for a 6 nm diameter nanoparticle.

In this work, we develop two mean-field polycrystal plasticity models in which the L{sup c} are approximated stochastically. Through comprehensive CPFEM analyses of an idealized tantalum polycrystal, we verify that the L{sup c} tend to follow a normal distribution and surmise that this is due to the crystal interactions. We draw on these results to develop the STM and the stochastic no-constraints model (SNCM), which differ in the manner in which the crystal strain rates D{sup c} are prescribed. Calibration and validation of the models are performed using data from tantalum compression experiments. Both models predict the compression textures more accurately than the FCM, and the SNCM predicts them more accurately than the STM. The STM is extremely computationally efficient, only slightly more expensive than the FCM, while the SNCM is three times more computationally expensive than the STM.

Radiant energy receiver having improved coolant flow control means  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved coolant flow control for use in radiant energy receivers of the type having parallel flow paths is disclosed. A coolant performs as a temperature dependent valve means, increasing flow in the warmer flow paths of the receiver, and impeding flow in the cooler paths of the receiver. The coolant has a negative temperature coefficient of viscosity which is high enough such that only an insignificant flow through the receiver is experienced at the minimum operating temperature of the receiver, and such that a maximum flow is experienced at the maximum operating temperature of the receiver. The valving is accomplished by changes in viscosity of the coolant in response to the coolant being heated and cooled. No remotely operated valves, comparators or the like are needed.

Mean importance measures for groups of events in fault trees  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The method of moments is applied to precisely determine the mean values of three importance measures: risk reduction, partial derivative, and variance reduction. Variance reduction calculations, in particular, are significantly improved by eliminating the imprecision associated with Monte Carlo estimates. The three importance measures are extended to permit analyses of the relative importance of groups of basic and initiating events. The partial derivative importance measure is extended by assessing the contribution of a group of events to the gradient of the top event frequency. The group importance measures are quantified for the overall fuel damage equation and for 14 dominant accident sequences from an independent probabilistic safety assessment of the K Production Reactor. This application demonstrates both the utility and the versatility of the group importance measures.

Comparative Analysis of Alternative Means for Removing Noncondensable Gases  

Open Energy Info (EERE)

Comparative Analysis of Alternative Means for Removing Noncondensable Gases Comparative Analysis of Alternative Means for Removing Noncondensable Gases from Flashed-Steam Geothermal Power Plants:April 1999 - March 2000 Dataset Summary Description This dataset corresponds to the final report on a screening study to compare six methods of removing noncondensable gases from direct-use geo-thermal steam power plants. This report defines the study methodologies and compares the performance and economics of selected gas-removal systems. Recommendations are presented for follow-up investigations and implementation of some of the technologies discussed. The specific gas-removal methods include five vacuum system configurations using the conventional approach of evacuating gas/vapor mixtures from the power plant condenser system and a system for physical separation of steam and gases upstream of the power turbine. The study focused on flashed-steam applications, but the results apply equally well to flashed-steam and dry-steam geothermal power plant configurations. Two gas-removal options appear to offer profitable economic potential. The hybrid vacuum system configurations and the reboiler process yield positive net present value results over wide-ranging gas concentrations. The hybrid options look favorable for both low-temperature and high-temperature resource applications. The reboiler looks profitable for low-temperature resource applications for gas levels above about 20,000 parts per million by volume. A vacuum system configuration using a three-stage turbocompressor battery may be profitable for low-temperature resources, but results show that the hybrid system is more profitable. The biphase eductor alternative cannot be recommended for commercialization at this time. The report is available from NREL's publication database.

Avalanche shape and exponents beyond mean-field theory  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Elastic systems, such as magnetic domain walls, density waves, contact lines, and cracks, are all pinned by substrate disorder. When driven, they move via successive jumps called avalanches, with power law distributions of size, duration and velocity. Their exponents, and the shape of an avalanche, defined as its mean velocity as function of time, have recently been studied. They are known approximatively from experiments and simulations, and were predicted from mean-field models, such as the Brownian force model (BFM), where each point of the elastic interface sees a force field which itself is a random walk. As we showed in EPL 97 (2012) 46004, the BFM is the starting point for an $\\epsilon = d_{\\rm c}-d$ expansion around the upper critical dimension, with $d_{\\rm c}=4$ for short-ranged elasticity, and $d_{\\rm c}=2$ for long-ranged elasticity. Here we calculate analytically the ${\\cal O}(\\epsilon)$, i.e. 1-loop, correction to the avalanche shape at fixed duration $T$, for both types of elasticity. The exact expression is well approximated by $\\left_T\\simeq [ Tx(1-x)]^{\\gamma-1} \\exp\\left( {\\cal A}\\left[\\frac12-x\\right]\\right)$, $0

Generalized coherent states  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In the coherent state of the harmonic oscillator, the probability density is that of the ground state subjected to an oscillation along a classical trajectory. Senitzky and others pointed out that there are states of the harmonic oscillator corresponding to an identical oscillatory displacement of the probability density of any energy eigenstate. These generalizations of the coherent state are rarely discussed, yet they furnish an interesting set of quantum states of light that combine features of number states and coherent states. Here we give an elementary account of the quantum optics of generalized coherent states.

Neutron Radii in Nuclei and the Neutron Equation of State  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The root-mean-square radius for neutrons in nuclei is investigated in the Skyrme Hartree-Fock model. The main source of theoretical variation comes from the exchange part of the density-dependent interaction which can be related to a basic property of the neutron equation of state. A precise measurement of the neutron radius in 208Pb would place an important new constraint on the equation of state for neutron matter. The Friedman-Pandharipande neutron equation of state would lead to a very precise value of 0.160.02 fm for the difference between the neutron and the proton root-mean-square radius in 208Pb.

Qutrit Magic State Distillation  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Magic state distillation (MSD) is a purification protocol that plays a central role in fault tolerant quantum computation. Repeated iteration of the steps of a MSD protocol, generates pure single non-stabilizer states, or magic states, from multiple copies of a mixed resource state using stabilizer operations only. Thus mixed resource states promote the stabilizer operations to full universality. Magic state distillation was introduced for qubit-based quantum computation, but little has been known concerning MSD in higher dimensional qudit-based computation. Here, we describe a general approach for studying MSD in higher dimensions. We use it to investigate the features of a qutrit MSD protocol based on the 5-qutrit stabilizer code. We show that this protocol distills non-stabilizer magic states, and identify two types of states, that are attractors of this iteration map. Finally, we show how these states may be converted, via stabilizer circuits alone, into a state suitable for state injected implementation ...

November 15, 2005 November 15, 2005 Successful Sequestration Project Could Mean More Oil and Less Carbon Dioxide Emissions Weyburn Project Breaks New Ground in Enhanced Oil Recovery Efforts WASHINGTON, DC - Secretary Samuel Bodman today announced that the Department of Energy (DOE)-funded "Weyburn Project" successfully sequestered five million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the Weyburn Oilfield in Saskatchewan, Canada, while doubling the field's oil recovery rate. If the methodology used in the Weyburn Project was successfully applied on a worldwide scale, one-third to one-half of CO2 emissions could be eliminated in the next 100 years and billions of barrels of oil could be recovered. "The success of the Weyburn Project could have incredible implications for reducing CO2 emissions and increasing America's oil production. Just by applying this technique to the oil fields of Western Canada we would see billions of additional barrels of oil and a reduction in CO2 emissions equivalent to pulling more than 200 million cars off the road for a year," Secretary of Energy Bodman said. "The Weyburn Project will provide policymakers, the energy industry, and the general public with reliable information about industrial carbon sequestration and enhanced oil recovery."

Relativistic mean-field models and nuclear matter constraints  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This work presents a preliminary study of 147 relativistic mean-field (RMF) hadronic models used in the literature, regarding their behavior in the nuclear matter regime. We analyze here different kinds of such models, namely: (i) linear models, (ii) nonlinear {sigma}{sup 3}+{sigma}{sup 4} models, (iii) {sigma}{sup 3}+{sigma}{sup 4}+{omega}{sup 4} models, (iv) models containing mixing terms in the fields {sigma} and {omega}, (v) density dependent models, and (vi) point-coupling ones. In the finite range models, the attractive (repulsive) interaction is described in the Lagrangian density by the {sigma} ({omega}) field. The isospin dependence of the interaction is modeled by the {rho} meson field. We submit these sets of RMF models to eleven macroscopic (experimental and empirical) constraints, used in a recent study in which 240 Skyrme parametrizations were analyzed. Such constraints cover a wide range of properties related to symmetric nuclear matter (SNM), pure neutron matter (PNM), and both SNM and PNM.

Mean Life of the P23 Metastable Argon Level  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using a previously described light absorption technique, the mean life of the metastable P23 level of argon has been measured in pure argon as a function of pressure at 77K and 300K, and in mixtures of neon and argon at 300K. The coefficient of diffusion of metastable argon atoms in the parent gas falls much more rapidly with decreasing temperature than the T32 dependence predicted using the hard-sphere model. The cross section for the quenching of metastable atoms by two-body collisions with normal atoms changes slightly with temperature, in a manner inconsistent with the assumption of collision-induced transitions to the radiating P13 level. As the temperature is reduced from 300K to 77K, the frequency of quenching by three-body collisions increases from 13.5p2 to 440p2 sec-1 (mm of Hg )2. At a given total pressure, the two-body quenching collision cross section is much reduced and the three-body quenching collisions disappear as the ratio of partial pressures of neon to argon is increased.

Can-out hatch assembly with magnetic retention means  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A can-out hatch assembly may be positioned in sealed engagement about aperture within a chamber and is adapted to engage a cover on a container positioned over the aperture to allow the transfer of a contaminant from the chamber to the container while maintaining the contaminant as well as internal portions of the chamber and container isolated from the surrounding environment. With the container's cover engaged by the can-out hatch assembly, the hatch assembly as well as the cover may be pivotally displaced from the aperture with the cover maintaining the exterior portion of the hatch assembly isolated from the contaminant. After the contaminant is transferred from the chamber to the container, the hatch assembly and cover are again positioned in sealed engagement about the aperture. The hatch assembly then positions the cover upon the open end of the container in a sealed manner allowing the container to be removed while maintaining the chamber sealed relative to the surrounding environment. The can-out hatch assembly is particularly adapted for operation by remote control means within the sealed chamber.

Steady state compact toroidal plasma production  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Apparatus and method for maintaining steady state compact toroidal plasmas. A compact toroidal plasma is formed by a magnetized coaxial plasma gun and held in close proximity to the gun electrodes by applied magnetic fields or magnetic fields produced by image currents in conducting walls. Voltage supply means maintains a constant potential across the electrodes producing an increasing magnetic helicity which drives the plasma away from a minimum energy state. The plasma globally relaxes to a new minimum energy state, conserving helicity according to Taylor's relaxation hypothesis, and injecting net helicity into the core of the compact toroidal plasma. Controlling the voltage so as to inject net helicity at a predetermined rate based on dissipative processes maintains or increases the compact toroidal plasma in a time averaged steady state mode.

Entropy-energy inequalities for qudit states  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We establish a procedure to find the extremal density matrices for any finite Hamiltonian of a qudit system. These extremal density matrices provide an approximate description of the energy spectra of the Hamiltonian. In the case of restricting the extremal density matrices by pure states, we show that the energy spectra of the Hamiltonian is recovered for $d=2$ and $3$. We conjecture that by means of this approach the energy spectra can be recovered for the Hamiltonian of an arbitrary finite qudit system. For a given qudit system Hamiltonian, we find new inequalities connecting the mean value of the Hamiltonian and the entropy of an arbitrary state. We demonstrate that these inequalities take place for both the considered extremal density matrices and generic ones.

The microscopic meaning of grand potential: cluster properties of the one-dimensional lattice gas  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We demonstrate, with a concrete example, how the combinatorial approach to a general system of particles, which was introduced in detail in the earlier paper arXiv:1205.4986, works and where it enters to provide a genuine extension of results obtainable by more traditional methods of statistical mechanics. To this end, an effort is made to study cluster properties of the one-dimensional lattice gas with nearest neighbor interactions. Three cases: the infinite temperature limit, the range of finite temperatures, and the zero temperature limit are discussed separately, yielding some new results and providing alternative proofs of known results. In particular, the closed-form expression for the grand partition function in the zero temperature limit is obtained, which results in the non-analytic behavior of the grand potential, in accordance with the Yang-Lee theory.

Bound states of hyperbolic potential is investigated by means of a generalized pseudospectral method. Significantly improved eigenvalues, eigenfunctions are obtained efficiently for arbitrary $n, \\ell$ quantum states by solving the relevant non-relativistic Schr\\"odinger equation allowing a non-uniform, optimal spatial discretization. Eigenvalues accurate up to tenth decimal place are reported for a large range of potential parameters; thus covering a wide range of interaction. Excellent agreement with available literature results is observed in all occasions. Special attention is paid for higher states. Some new states are given. Energy variations with respect to parameters in the potential are studied in considerable detail for the first time.

Method and apparatus for simultaneous determination of fluid mass flow rate, mean velocity and density  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

This invention relates to a new method and new apparatus for determining fluid mass flowrate and density. In one aspect of the invention, the fluid is passed through a straight cantilevered tube in which transient oscillation has been induced, thus generating Coriolis damping forces on the tube. The decay rate and frequency of the resulting damped oscillation are measured, and the fluid mass flowrate and density are determined therefrom. In another aspect of the invention, the fluid is passed through the cantilevered tube while an electrically powered device imparts steady-state harmonic excitation to the tube. This generates Coriolis tube-damping forces which are dependent on the mass flowrate of the fluid. Means are provided to respond to incipient flow-induced changes in the amplitude of vibration by changing the power input to the excitation device as required to sustain the original amplitude of vibration. The fluid mass flowrate and density are determined from the required change in power input. The invention provides stable, rapid, and accurate measurements. It does not require bending of the fluid flow.

Rubber linings have been applied as a corrosion protection measure for steel surfaces, particularly in the absorbers, in the flue gas desulfurization plants of a large number of power stations in Europe and have decidedly proven their effectiveness. The rubber linings applied consist of either precured and/or cold-curing rubber sheets. In the course of the past five to seven years, the eastern European states have also begun retro-fitting their existing power stations with flue gas desulfurization plants. As the first of its kind, a scrubber in the flue gas desulfurization plant of the Konin Power Station in Poland, which operates on the basis of the limestone-gypsum process, was constructed of concrete. In this case also, the corrosion protection measures implemented consisted in the application of a precured rubber lining on the basis of butyl rubber. A surface area measuring 1,500 m{sup 2} of the concrete absorber was protected by means of this corrosion protection system.

Landowner and permit-holder perceptions of wildlife damage around the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory. A survey of INEEL neighbors about elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, and depredation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Property-owners (N = 220) around the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) in southeastern Idaho were surveyed about depredation, control methods and economic issues related to use of the area by elk (Cervus elaphus), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), and pronghorn antelope (Antilocapra americana). Depredation was defined as damage to privately-owned crops, forage, and fences and irrigation equipment by these animals. The focus on the three ungulate species was prompted by concerns that elk, which had recolonized the INEEL since 1984, were responsible for an inordinate amount of unprecedented damage to agricultural operations. As the INEEL is a US Department of Energy (DOE) reserve with little public hunting access, there have been calls for removal of elk from this land. This study`s objective was to quantify the wildlife damage occurring on agricultural operations adjacent to the INEEL and to characterize the damage attributed to each big game species. Responses from 70.2% of the target population indicate an evenness of opinion, by which the authors mean that various opinions were represented equitably, toward these animals and wildlife damage Total estimated wildlife damage in 1996 was between $140,000 and $180,000 It was attributed foremost to elk, although pronghorn antelope were viewed nearly as damaging. Respondents placed high values in big game animals and wished to see them continue to inhabit these lands. For managing depredation, adjusting hunting seasons was preferred.

Fr\\'echet means of curves for signal averaging and application to ECG data analysis  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Signal averaging is the process that consists in computing a mean shape from a set of noisy signals. In the presence of geometric variability in time in the data, the usual Euclidean mean of the raw data yields a mean pattern that does not reflect the typical shape of the observed signals. In this setting, it is necessary to use alignment techniques for a precise synchronization of the signals, and then to average the aligned data to obtain a consistent mean shape. In this paper, we study the numerical performances of Fr\\'echet means of curves which are extensions of the usual Euclidean mean to spaces endowed with non-Euclidean metrics. This yields a new algorithm for signal averaging without a reference template. We apply this approach to the estimation of a mean heart cycle from ECG records.

Rydberg states of HD  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The triplet nf Rydberg states of HD with n=917, L=3, v=1, and R=1,3 have been observed and identified with the lasermolecular-beam method. A 20-eV electron beam excites a collimated HD beam to the metastable 2p ?3 state. Two counterpropagating cw single-frequency laser beams excite the metastable molecule first to the intermediate 3d ?3 state, then to a triplet nf Rydberg state. The transition frequencies between the 3d and nf states have been measured to an accuracy of 0.02 cm-1. The long-range model gives the transition frequencies to an accuracy of approximately 0.1 cm-1. Using these energy-level measurements, the ionization potential of the metastable state has been determined to be 27 460.98(30) cm-1 and the energy difference between the triplet metastable and the singlet ground state has been determined to be 97 105.50(30) cm-1. In addition, the linewidths of the triplet Rydberg states have been measured, giving the autoionization rates.

The state road map  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the past year, electric industry restructuring has become a hot issue in virtually every state - not only those with high retail rates. So far this year, retail access legislation has been introduced in 23 states, and study bills have been introduced in another nine. Several of these states have already taken action. Oklahoma enacted the Electric Restructuring Act of 1997 in late April, mandating retail choice of generation suppliers by 2002, and legislatures in Maryland, Utah, Arkansas and Idaho adopted study bills. On the regulatory front, formal and substantive commission proceedings are moving forward in well over half the states. State legislatures and regulatory commissions around the country are keenly focused on those states which already enacted retail access legislation and are now slogging through the details of implementation. Even with new laws in place, heated debates on the issues surrounding both deregulation of generation and the evolution of the retail energy service market continue, and delays are possible. Retail energy service companies could begin competing for up to 20 million retail customers next year in Massachusetts, California, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, along with a significant number of new pilot-program customers in Pennsylvania and New York. This article gives a brief progress report on the states closest to retail choice.

Optimal estimation of an observable's expectation value for pure states for general measure of deviation  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

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

D. Jones, T. M. L. Wigley, and K. R. Briffa Real and reconstructed measurements of monthly mean pressure data have been constructed for Europe for 1780 through 1980 and North America for 1858 through 1980. The reconstructions use early pressure, temperature, and precipitation data from a variety of sources including World Weather Records, meteorological and national archives, circulation maps, and daily chart series. Each record contains the year, monthly mean pressure, quality code, and annual mean pressure. These reconstructed gridded monthly pressures provide a reliable historical record of mean sea-level pressures

Formation and electronic states of In nanoclusters on the Si(111)-77 surface  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The formation and evolution of submonolayer In clusters on the Si(111)-77 surface at different temperatures were investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy. The electronic states of the well-defined nanoclusters were studied by scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS). The well-ordered triangular In magic clusters are formed at ?200?C within 77 half-unit cells as reported previously. The STS measurement reveals the semiconducting property of In magic clusters with a substantial energy gap of 0.8 eV in accordance with the recent photoemission study. The band gap is very asymmetric with a shallow unoccupied state due to the pseudomolecular orbitals of the In-Si bond network, as revealed by the density-functional calculation for the existing structure model with six In atoms. The electronic modification of Si adatoms in the neighboring sites was observed. At a lower temperature than that of the magic cluster formation, we observed a different type of nanoclusters formed in faulted half-unit cells with an identical size. This cluster has a characteristic asymmetric shape with chirality. These nanoclusters are thought to consist of a similar number of In atoms and are the precursory state to the magic cluster formation. The STS result for the initial cluster shows a distinct semiconducting property with a significantly reduced band gap of 0.4 eV.

Interplay of anisotropies of momentum distribution and mean field in heavy-ion collisions  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Two important parametrizations of momentum-dependent nucleonic fields, proposed for the simulations of central heavy-ion collisions, one by Gale et al. and the other by Welke et al., suffer from practical limitations. The first gives rise to mean fields isotropic in momentum, even when underlying momentum distributions are anisotropic, making descriptions of early nonequilibrium stages of collisions unrealistic. The second parametrization gives rise to anisotropic mean fields, but is computationally expensive, because the mean field has to be computed separately for every location of a nucleon in phase space, through folding. Here we construct a parametrization of the nucleonic mean field that yields an anisotropic mean field for an anisotropic momentum distribution and is inexpensive computationally. To demonstrate the versatility of our parametrization, we take the case of results from the parametrization by Welke et al. and attempt to approximate them. In arriving at a suitable anisotropic mean-field potential, we draw, on one hand, from the idea behind the parametrization of Gale et al., of a separable expansion of the potential energy, and, on the other, from the idea of a parallel expansion of the energy and mean field in anisotropy. We show that using our novel parametrization we can qualitatively and partially quantitatively reproduce the features of the mean-field parametrization of Welke et al.. This opens up the possibility of exploring the effects of mean-field anisotropy in collisions, without the penalty of computational cost behind the folding parametrization.

Decay times of quantum states in one- and two-photon absorption processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We introduce two definitions of the transition time to the ground state from an arbitrary initial (pure or mixed) quantum state: conventional and mean times. The dependences of these quantitative characteristics of the relaxation process on the initial conditions show the qualitative difference between the one- and two-photon absorption processes: in the one-photon case, the transition times go to infinity with increase of the initial mean energy, whereas these times tend to some constant values in the multi-photon processes (for both definitions). The analysis of the evolution of different initial states (Fock's, coherent, even/odd, squeezed, thermal) shows the important role of the quantum fluctuations, because the decay times of the thermal and vacuum squeezed states turn out to be smaller than the decay times of the Fock and coherent states with the same initial mean photon number, both in one- and two-photon processes.

Application of the relativistic mean-field mass model to the r-process and the influence of mass uncertainties  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A new mass table calculated by the relativistic mean-field approach with the state-dependent BCS method for the pairing correlation is applied for the first time to study r-process nucleosynthesis. The solar r-process abundance is well reproduced within a waiting-point approximation approach. Using an exponential fitting procedure to find the required astrophysical conditions, the influence of mass uncertainty is investigated. The r-process calculations using the FRDM, ETFSI-Q, and HFB-13 mass tables have been used for that purpose. It is found that the nuclear physical uncertainty can significantly influence the deduced astrophysical conditions for the r-process site. In addition, the influence of the shell closure and shape transition have been examined in detail in the r-process simulations.

On the meaning of feedback parameter, transient climate response, and the greenhouse effect: Basic considerations and the discussion of uncertainties  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In this paper we discuss the meaning of feedback parameter, greenhouse effect and transient climate response usually related to the globally averaged energy balance model of Schneider and Mass. After scrutinizing this model and the corresponding planetary radiation balance we state that (a) the this globally averaged energy balance model is flawed by unsuitable physical considerations, (b) the planetary radiation balance for an Earth in the absence of an atmosphere is fraught by the inappropriate assumption of a uniform surface temperature, the so-called radiative equilibrium temperature of about 255 K, and (c) the effect of the radiative anthropogenic forcing, considered as a perturbation to the natural system, is much smaller than the uncertainty involved in the solution of the model of Schneider and Mass. This uncertainty is mainly related to the empirical constants suggested by various authors and used for predicting the emission of infrared radiation by the Earth's skin. Furthermore, after inserting the ...

Ground States of the Ising Model on the Shastry-Sutherland Lattice and the Origin of the Fractional Magnetization Plateaus in Rare-Earth-Metal Tetraborides  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A complete and exact solution of the ground-state problem for the Ising model on the Shastry-Sutherland lattice in an applied magnetic field is found. The magnetization plateau at one third of the saturation value is shown to be the only possible fractional plateau in this model. However, stripe magnetic structures with 1/2 and 1/n (n>3) magnetization, observed in the rare-earth-metal tetraborides RB4, occur at the boundaries of the three-dimensional regions of the ground-state phase diagram. These structures give rise to new magnetization plateaus if interactions of longer range are taken into account. For instance, an additional third-neighbor interaction is shown to produce a 1/2 plateau. The results obtained significantly refine the understanding of the magnetization process in RB4 compounds, especially in TmB4 and ErB4, which are strong Ising magnets.

A General Derivation of Pointer States: Decoherence and Classicality  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The purpose of the present study is to derive the pointer states of a macroscopic system interacting with its environment, under the general assumptions, i.e., without assuming any form of the interaction Hamiltonian. The lowest order perturbation leads that the interaction energy shifts the phase factors of the state vectors. For a macroscopic system, these factors are the macroscopic quantities even for the very weak interaction. When we group the state vector of the total system by the view point of environmental side, the destructive interference occurs and the stationary phase approximation can be adopted. Only the pointer states then survive and the decoherence also occurs. The present approach is within the standard quantum mechanics as same as the standard decoherence theory, but the meaning of the classical state is much clear.

Electromagnetic Siegert states for periodic dielectric structures  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The formalism of Siegert states to describe the resonant scattering in quantum theory is extended to the resonant scattering of electromagnetic waves on periodic dielectric arrays. The excitation of electromagnetic Siegert states by an incident wave packet and their decay is studied. The formalism is applied to develop a theory of coupled electromagnetic resonances arising in the electromagnetic scattering problem for two such arrays separated by a distance 2h (or, generally, when the physical properties of the scattering array depend on a real coupling parameter h). Analytic properties of Siegert states as functions of the coupling parameter h are established by the Regular Perturbation Theorem which is an extension the Kato-Rellich theorem to the present case. By means of this theorem, it is proved that if the scattering structure admits a bound state in the radiation continuum at a certain value of the coupling parameter h, then there always exist regions within the structure in which the near field can be amplified as much as desired by adjusting the value of h. This establishes a rather general mechanism to control and amplify optical nonlinear effects in periodically structured planar structures possessing a nonlinear dielectric susceptibility.

Information Equation of State  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Landauer's principle is applied to information in the universe. Once stars began forming, the increasing proportion of matter at high stellar temperatures compensated for the expanding universe to provide a near constant information energy density. The information equation of state was close to the dark energy value, w = -1, for a wide range of redshifts, 10> z >0.8, over one half of cosmic time. A reasonable universe information bit content of only 10^87 bits is sufficient for information energy to account for all dark energy. A time varying equation of state with a direct link between dark energy and matter, and linked to star formation in particular, is clearly relevant to the cosmic coincidence problem.In answering the "Why now?" question we wonder "What next?" as we expect the information equation of state to tend towards w = 0 in the future.

By means of a partial wave decomposition, we separate their contributions to the equation of state of symmetric nuclear matter for the N3LO pseudo-potential. In particular, we show that although both the tensor and the spin-orbit terms do not contribute to the equation of state, they give a non-vanishing contribution to the separate (JLS) channels.

Implications of an Improvised Nuclear Device Detonation on Command and Control for Surrounding Regions at the Local, State and Federal Levels  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper discusses command and control issues relating to the operation of Incident Command Posts (ICPs) and Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) in the surrounding area jurisdictions following the detonation of an Improvised Nuclear Device (IND). Although many aspects of command and control will be similar to what is considered to be normal operations using the Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the IND response will require many new procedures and associations in order to design and implement a successful response. The scope of this white paper is to address the following questions: Would the current command and control framework change in the face of an IND incident? What would the management of operations look like as the event unfolded? How do neighboring and/or affected jurisdictions coordinate with the state? If the target areas command and control infrastructure is destroyed or disabled, how could neighboring jurisdictions assist with command and control of the targeted jurisdiction? How would public health and medical services fit into the command and control structure? How can pre-planning and common policies improve coordination and response effectiveness? Where can public health officials get federal guidance on radiation, contamination and other health and safety issues for IND response planning and operations?

Embedding potentials for excited states of embedded species  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Frozen-Density-Embedding Theory (FDET) is a formalism to obtain the upper bound of the ground-state energy of the total system and the corresponding embedded wavefunction by means of Euler-Lagrange equations [T. A. Wesolowski, Phys. Rev. A 77(1), 012504 (2008)]. FDET provides the expression for the embedding potential as a functional of the electron density of the embedded species, electron density of the environment, and the field generated by other charges in the environment. Under certain conditions, FDET leads to the exact ground-state energy and density of the whole system. Following Perdew-Levy theorem on stationary states of the ground-state energy functional, the other-than-ground-state stationary states of the FDET energy functional correspond to excited states. In the present work, we analyze such use of other-than-ground-state embedded wavefunctions obtained in practical calculations, i.e., when the FDET embedding potential is approximated. Three computational approaches based on FDET, that assure self-consistent excitation energy and embedded wavefunction dealing with the issue of orthogonality of embedded wavefunctions for different states in a different manner, are proposed and discussed.

Diagnosing and modifying off-site blast effects by seismic means -- A case study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A series of complaints were received from the owners of a 130 year-old farmhouse that had been converted into a bed and breakfast establishment. It was determined that blast effects were most noticeable on the third floor of the farmhouse. A vibration study was proposed aimed at isolating the actual cause of the perceived vibration. To aid in this determination, a customized, split-cable seismograph utilizing three single component transducers was deployed both in the interior and exterior of the farmhouse for two primary blasts. By utilizing a monitoring technique involving both interior and exterior sensors from a single seismograph, vibration time-histories from the three locations could be time-linked, providing an accurate assessment as to the actual mechanism responsible for the complaints. In this case, the split-cable array provided data indicating a low frequency ground vibration effect. Amplification of structure vibration due to the matching of the natural frequency of the farmhouse and the transmitted ground vibration was identified as the probable cause of the complaints. Given the potential impact of low frequency energy with surrounding properties, an analytical approach based on the concept of linear superpositioning was used to determine optimum delay intervals to reduce the off-site impact of future production blasts. Single-hole test blast data was recorded with traditional seismographs and analyzed using vibration control software. Utilization of recommended blasthole sequencing, combined with a change in blast orientation, resulted in the elimination of complaints at the farmhouse, in reduced vibration values at other neighboring properties and in a reduction in the overall liability exposure.

A Graphic Representation of States for Quantum Copying Machines  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The aim of this paper is to introduce a new graphic representation of quantum states by means of a specific application: the analysis of two models of quantum copying machines. The graphic representation by diagrams of states offers a clear and detailed visualization of quantum information's flow during the unitary evolution of not too complex systems. The diagrams of states are exponentially more complex in respect to the standard representation and this clearly illustrates the discrepancy of computational power between quantum and classical systems. After a brief introductive exposure of the general theory, we present a constructive procedure to illustrate the new representation by means of concrete examples. Elementary diagrams of states for single-qubit and two-qubit systems and a simple scheme to represent entangled states are presented. Quantum copying machines as imperfect cloners of quantum states are introduced and the quantum copying machines of Griffiths and Niu and of Buzek and Hillery are analyzed, determining quantum circuits of easier interpretation. The method has indeed shown itself to be extremely successful for the representation of the involved quantum operations and it has allowed to point out the characteristic aspects of the quantum computations examined.

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The invention includes a means and method for transmitting and receiving broadband, unipolar, ultrasonic pulses for ultrasonic inspection. The method comprises generating a generally unipolar ultrasonic stress pulse from a low impedance voltage pulse transmitter along a low impedance electrical pathway to an ultrasonic transducer, and receiving the reflected echo of the pulse by the transducer, converting it to a voltage signal, and passing it through a high impedance electrical pathway to an output. The means utilizes electrical components according to the method. The means and method allow a single transducer to be used in a pulse/echo mode, and facilitates alternatingly transmitting and receiving the broadband, unipolar, ultrasonic pulses. 25 figures.

Filling and wetting transitions on sinusoidal substrates: a mean-field study of the Landau-Ginzburg model  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We study the interfacial phenomenology of a fluid in contact with a microstructured substrate within the mean-field approximation. The sculpted substrate is a one-dimensional array of infinitely long grooves of sinusoidal section of periodicity length L and amplitude A. The system is modelled using the Landau-Ginzburg functional, with fluid-substrate couplings which correspond to either first-order or critical wetting for a flat substrate. We investigate the effect of the roughness of the substrate in the interfacial phenomenology, paying special attention to filling and wetting phenomena, and compare the results with the predictions of the macroscopic and interfacial Hamiltonian theories. At bulk coexistence, for values of L much larger than the bulk correlation, we observe first-order filling transitions between dry and partially filled interfacial states, which extend off-coexistence, ending at a critical point; and wetting transitions between partially filled and completely wet interfacial states with the same order as for the flat substrate (if first-order, wetting extends off-coexistence in a prewetting line). On the other hand, if the groove height is of order of the correlation length, only wetting transitions between dry and complete wet states are observed. However, their characteristics depend on the order of the wetting transition for the flat substrate. So, if it is first-order, the wetting transition temperature for the rough substrate is reduced with respect to the wetting transition temperature for a flat substrate, and coincides with the Wenzel law prediction for very shallow substrates. On the contrary, if the flat substrate wetting transition is continuous, the roughness does not change the wetting temperature.

Neutron radii and the neutron equation of state in relativistic models  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The root-mean-square radii for neutrons in nuclei and their relationship to the neutron equation of state are investigated in the relativistic Hartree model. A correlation between the neutron skin in heavy nuclei and the derivative of the neutron equation of state is found which provides a linear continuation of results obtained from nonrelativistic Hartree-Fock models. The relativistic models tend to give larger neutron radii and an associated stiffer neutron equation of state compared with the nonrelativistic models.

Time-Dependent Green's Functions Description of One-Dimensional Nuclear Mean-Field Dynamics  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The time-dependent Green's functions formalism provides a consistent description of the time evolution of quantum many-body systems, either in the mean-field approximation or in more sophisticated correlated approaches. We describe an attempt to apply this formalism to the mean-field dynamics of symmetric reactions for one-dimensional nuclear slabs. We pay particular attention to the off-diagonal elements of the Green's functions in real space representation. Their importance is quantified by means of an elimination scheme based on a super-operator cut-off field and their relevance for the global time evolution is assessed. The Wigner function and its structure in the mean-field approximation is also discussed.

Mean Stress and Environmental Effects on Fatigue in Type 304 Stainless Steel  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Fatigue life tests were performed in air on Type 304 stainless steel (304 SS) to establish the effect of mean stress under both load control and strain control. An apparent reduction of up to 26% in strain-amplitude occurred in the low and intermediate cycle regime (< 10{sup 8} cycles) for a mean stress of 138 Mpa. A quantitative description of mean stress effects using the Smith-Watson-Topper equivalent strain parameter was developed, which incorporates mean stress through the maximum stress. This description provided a tighter fit to the data, and allowed separation of mean stress and cold work effects. With this separation, the effect of mean stress was reduced to 12% decrease in strain amplitude at 138 Mpa. The stress-life curve apparently increased with increasing mean stress, due to the significant work hardening that occurred in tests with high mean stresses, especially under load control. Tests were performed on double-edge notched specimens of 304 SS in air and low oxygen water at 288 C. The elastically calculated increase in the notch tip stress accounted within 10% for the fatigue life reductions for a K{sub t} = 4.8 notch, but was 38% conservative for a K{sub t} = 8.8 notch. Fatigue crack initiation lives (defined as an 0.127 mm crack) in low oxygen water at 288 C were reduced by a factor of four to eight on cycles over those in air. Crack growth occurred throughout most of the fatigue ''initiation'' life. The increase in crack growth rate of 304 SS in water appears to be large enough to explain the reduced ''initiation'' life in this environment.
