Isotopes Np240 and Np241  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The 1-hour neptunium activity which had previously been assigned to Np241 has been identified as the lower isomer of Np240. The decay energy of the 1-hour Np240 has been found to be 2.05 Mev compared with 2.18 Mev for that of the 7.3-min Np240. Gamma rays of energies 1160, 1000, 915, 595, 565, 435, 245, 160, and 85 kev have been found to be associated with the decay of Np240. The best value for the half-life of Np240 is 63±2 min. The isotope Np241 has been found to have a 16-min half-life with strong evidence for an isomer with a 3.4-hour half-life.

Sustainable multipurpose tree production systems for Nepal  

SciTech Connect

Argonne National Laboratory is developing methods for producing reforestation plating stock, fuel, and fodder in a sustainable manner in Nepal. This project, in cooperation with the Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation of Nepal, is sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (AID). Several production systems are being evaluated for the Mid-Hills Region of Nepal. To provide sustainable biomass production and ecological management of the fragile Mid-Hills Region, the production systems must simultaneously satisfy the physiological requirements of the plants, the symbiotic requirements of the plant and the microorganisms in its rhizosphere, the physicochemical requirements of nutrient and water cycling, and the climatic and topographic constraints.

NP Stokes fields for radio astronomy  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The spin weighted spherical harmonic (SWSH) description of angular functions typically is associated with the Newman-Penrose (NP) null tetrad formalism. Recently the SWSH description, but not the NP formalism, has been used in the study of the polarization anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background. Here we relate this application of SWSHs to a description of electromagnetic radiation and polarization in the NP formalism. In particular we introduce NP Stokes fields that are the NP equivalent of the Stokes parameters. In addition to giving a more coherent foundation for the recent cosmological SWSH application, the NP formalism aids in the computation of the Lorentz transformation properties of polarization.

Precision test of the SM with Kl2 and Kl3 decays at KLOE  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Kaon decay studies seeking new-physics (NP) effects in leptonic (K_l2) or semileptonic (K_l3) decays are discussed. A unitarity test of the first row of the CKM mixing matrix is obtained from the KLOE precision measurements of Kl3 widths for K^+-, K_L, and (unique to KLOE) K_S, complemented with the absolute branching ratio for the K_mu2 decay. KLOE results lead to constraints for NP models and can probe possible charged Higgs exchange contribution in SM extensions with two Higgs doublets. The main focus in the present document is set on a new measurement of R_K=Gamma(K_e2)/Gamma(K_mu2) with an accuracy at the % level, aiming at finding evidence of deviations from the SM prediction induced by lepton-flavor violation NP effects.

The experimental determination of the solubility product for NpO{sub 2}OH in NaCl solutions  

SciTech Connect

The solubility of Np(V) was measured in NaCl solutions ranging from 0.30 to 5.6 molal at room temperature ({approximately}21 {plus_minus} 2{degrees}C). Experiments were conducted from undersaturation and allowed to equilibrate in a CO{sub 2}-free environment for 37 days. The apparent solubility products varied with NaCl concentration and were between 10{sup -9} and 10{sup -8} mol{sup 2}{sm_bullet}L{sup -2}. Using the specific ion interaction theory (SIT), the log of the solubility product of NpO{sub 2}OH(am) at infinite dilution was found to be - 8.79 {plus_minus} 0.12. The interaction coefficient, {epsilon}(NpO{sub 2}{sup +} - Cl{sup -}), was found to be (0.08 {plus_minus} 0.05).

Analysis of SM quantum information  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Morozova and Chentsov (Morozova and Chentsov 90) studied Riemannian metrics on the set of probability measures. They showed that, up to a constant factor, the Fisher information is the only Riemannian metric which is monotone under stochastic transformation. Sarovar and Milburn (Sarovar and Milburn 06) computed an upper bound on the Fisher information for one-parameter channels. In (O'Loan 07) we extended their bound to an upper bound on the Fisher information of multi-parameter families of states; we call this the SM quantum information. Petz and Sud\\'ar (Petz 95) characterized fully the set of monotone metrics on the space of all density matrices. We analyse the SM quantum information in light of their work. We show that the SM quantum information is not a well-defined metric on the space of density matrices: different choices of phase of the eigenvectors lead to different metrics. We define a new metric C_L as a lower bound among the SM quantum informations. We look at properties of C_L and show that it is invariant but not monotone.

Electrical resistance and magnetic properties of the neptunium monopnictides NpAs, NpSb, and NpBi at high pressures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report on high-pressure studies performed on the neptunium pnictides NpAs and NpBi via electrical resistance up to ?25 GPa between 1.3 K and room temperature, and on a high-pressure investigation up to 9 GPa and at 4.2 K on NpSb using 237Np Mössbauer spectroscopy. This work extends previous high-pressure studies carried out on NpAs via Mössbauer spectroscopy, on NpSb via resistance, and on all pnictides via x-ray study. In NpX (X=As,Sb,Bi) crystallizing in the cubic-NaCl phase the ground state is antiferromagnetic and displays a noncollinear 3k spin structure. The strong increase of the resistivity with decreasing temperature observed in the temperature range of the 3k order at ambient pressure collapses at 0.23 (NpAs), 2.7 (NpSb), and 3.9 GPa (NpBi). No significant change of the hyperfine interactions is found in NpAs or NpSb at the pressure where the resistance collapse is observed. The Kondo anomaly of the resistivity observed at ambient pressure disappears above 25 GPa (NpAs), 2.7 GPa (NpSb), and 3 GPa (NpBi). The Néel temperature TN of all compounds and the ordered moment of NpAs and NpSb decrease with reduced volume. For NpAs and NpBi the resistance indicates the presence of magnetic order at least up to 16 GPa. The compounds undergo a pressure-induced structural transition with a volume reduction by ?10%. Although in the resistance of NpSb the signature of magnetic order is lost already at 8 GPa in the high-pressure phase, a magnetic hyperfine field is present, which is reduced by ?30% relative to the NaCl phase. It is suggested that the resistance collapse is caused by a change of the magnetic structure, that the decrease of TN is due to a modification of the Fermi surface besides a small 5f delocalization, and that in NpSb the volume reduction in the structural high-pressure phase leads to an enhanced 5f delocalization.

Feasibility of Hydrogen Production from Micro Hydropower Projects in Nepal  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The current energy crisis in Nepal clearly indicates that the future energy-demand cannot be met by traditional energy-sources. Community-based micro-hydropower operations are considered to be one of the most feasible options for energy development. However, the power plant capacity factor remains very low due to limited commercial and business opportunities. Generation of hydrogen (H2) from the unutilized power could eradicate this problem. This new energy carrier is clean, can save foreign currency and increases the energy-security. The aim of this study is to determine the potential of H2 production from excess energy of a micro-hydro project in rural Nepal using “HOMER ” from NREL.

Crystal-field effects of Sm3+ ions in Sm2Fe17Nx  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using only two crystalline electric-field parameters A20 and A40 and the Sm-Fe exchange field Hex, the magnetic-anisotropy behavior of the Sm ion in Sm2Fe17Nx is described. It is shown that a field-induced noncollinear coupling between the spin and orbital moments of the Sm ion takes place during the magnetization process when the external field is applied along the hard axis. This noncollinear coupling causes a very different magnetization process of the Sm moment at T=0 and 300 K.

Beta Emitter Np238. I. Beta Spectroscopy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The beta decay of Np238 has been studied with several beta spectrometers. In addition to the known conversion lines corresponding to transitions of energies now determined as 44.0, 102.2, 986, and 1029 kev, new conversion lines, corresponding to transitions of 942 and 927 kev were found. These transitions indicate the presence of closely spaced levels at higher excitation energies. Intensities of conversion lines and beta groups were determined and compared with previous work. Fermi-Kurie plots confirm the allowed shape of the hard beta group (1.25 Mev) and give indication of complexity in the soft beta group (0.27 Mev). The energy deviations of the ground rotational band levels from the simple rotational energy formula are discussed.

Evaluation of SmCo and SmCoN magnetron sputtering coatings for SOFC interconnect applications  

SciTech Connect

Cobalt or cobalt containing coatings are promising for SOFC interconnect applications because of their high conductivity. We have investigated SmCo and SmCoN coatings deposited by magnetron sputtering from a SmCo (5% Sm) target on to Crofer 22 APU substrates. The composition, structure, surface morphology, and electrical conductivity of the coated substrates were characterized by SEM/EDX, XRD and ASR measurements. Addition of Sm enhances the oxidation resistance and the Cr retention capability of the coatings. The use of nitride as a precursor stabilizes Sm during oxidation of the films, thus inhibiting diffusion of Fe, resulting in a more compact coating and lowering ASR. The combined advantages of Sm addition to cobalt and the use of a nitride as a precursor, makes SmCoN coatings a promising new interconnect coating material.

New quantum algorithm for studying NP-complete problems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Ordinary approach to quantum algorithm is based on quantum Turing machine or quantum circuits. It is known that this approach is not powerful enough to solve NP-complete problems. In this paper we study a new approach to quantum algorithm which is a combination of the ordinary quantum algorithm with a chaotic dynamical system. We consider the satisfiability problem as an example of NP-complete problems and argue that the problem, in principle, can be solved in polynomial time by using our new quantum algorithm.

What Caused the Winter Drought in Western Nepal during Recent Years?  

SciTech Connect

Western Nepal has experienced consecutive and worsened winter drought conditions since 2000 culminating in a severe drought episode during 2008-2009. In this study, the meteorological conditons and a historical pespective of the winter droughts in western Nepal were analyzed using respectively instumental records and a paleoclimatic drought index. Althought decadal-scale drought conditions were found to be recurrent in the paleoclimate record, the severity of the recent decadal drought (since 2000) clearly stands out in the 700 years of record and, this is suggestive of potential anthropogenic influences in the recent decades. Meteorological diagnosis using atmospheric reanalysis in the recent decades revealed that (1) winter drought in western Nepal is linked to the Arctic Oscillation and its decadal variability, which initiates a tropospheric short-wave train across the Europe, Eurasia and South Asia, and that (2) the persistent warming of the Indian Ocean likely contributes to the suppression of rainfall through enhanced local Hadley circultion. It is therefore conceivable that the recent spells of decadal drought in Nepal drought are symptomatic of both natural variability and anthropogenic influences.

Lab Scale Production of NpO2  

SciTech Connect

The Savannah River Site (SRS) plans to disposition its legacy H-Canyon neptunium to Oak Ridge National Laboratory after converting it to oxide in HB-Line. Neptunium oxide, (NpO{sub 2}) was produced at the Savannah River Technology Center using the anticipated HB-Line flowsheet conditions. The oxide was produced from a neptunium nitrate solution via anion exchange, oxalate precipitation, and calcination at either 600 C or 650 C. The 98 grams of NpO{sub 2} produced in the laboratory should be representative of material produced in HB-Line and is to be used for gas generation testing to support radioactive material transportation safety analysis as part of the neptunium stabilization and disposition program at SRS. Results of each step of the oxide production will be presented.

Covariant Spectator Theory of np scattering: Deuteron Quadrupole Moment  

The deuteron quadrupole moment is calculated using two CST model wave functions obtained from the 2007 high precision fits to $np$ scattering data. Included in the calculation are a new class of isoscalar $np$ interaction currents automatically generated by the nuclear force model used in these fits. The prediction for model WJC-1, with larger relativistic P-state components, is $2.5\\%$ smaller that the experiential result, in common with the inability of models prior to 2014 to predict this important quantity. However, model WJC-2, with very small P-state components, gives agreement to better than 1\\%, similar to the results obtained recently from $\\chi$EFT predictions to order N$^3$LO.

The Neptune Proteus is designed for estuarine sites, which can exhibit powerful currents yet have lower access, cabling and maintenance costs than offshore environments. The vertical shaft connects to the gearbox and generator/alternator, located on the top of the pontoon with associated valves and electrical processing and control machinery. The power pontoon is easily moored in the free stream, thus minimizing environmental impact and operates just as efficiently in both flood and ebb currents. The rotor is maintained at optimal power outputs by sets of computer-controlled shutters within the duct. Theoretical work on 1/10th, 1/40th and 1/100th scale laboratory experiments suggest an overall efficiency of greater than 45%.

Effect of aging on the solubility and crystallinity of Np(IV) hydrous oxide  

SciTech Connect

Neptunium(IV) hydrous oxide (NpO/sub 2/ x xH/sub 2/O) was aged in aqueous suspensions with pH values ranging from 4 to 12. Initially amorphous NpO/sub 2/ x xH/sub 2/O developed strong X-ray diffraction peaks within one month that corresponded to crystalline NpO/sub 2/. The oxidation state analyses of the 1.8 nm filtered solutions showed the Np to be primarily present as Np(V). The solubility of NpO/sub 2/ x xH/sub 2/O in suspensions at pH values < 8.5 followed the NpO/sub 2/ x xH/sub 2/O in equilibrium NpO/sub 2//sup +/ + e/sup -/ + xH/sub 2/O reaction with an apparent log K/sup 0/ (after 200 days) of -10 +/- 1. The results of the aqueous suspensions with pH values > 8.5 were complicated by the partial conversion of the NpO/sub 2/ x xH/sub 2/O to an amorphous, oxidized Np solid, and possibly by Np aqueous speciation other than NpO/sub 2/OH/sup 0/. 13 references, 4 figures, 3 tables.

in Nepal in Nepal Dataset Summary Description (Abstract): Global Horizontal Solar Irradiance is developed based on a linear regression model that has been developed to correlate the theoretical and ground measured solar irradiance on the basis of available ground measured Global Horizontal Solar Irradiance at three locations: a) Syangboche (Solukhumbu) b) Pulchowk (Lalitpur) and c) Prakashpur (Sunsari). These locations represent the three different geographical regions: Mountain, Hill and Plain. The model is used for converting the theoretical Global Horizontal Solar Irradiance to actual solar irradiance in 15 meteorological stations spread throughout the country. Interpolating the data obtained at these stations, a map has been developed using ArcView GIS software. The existing methodology for projecting wind speedat 2m height from DHM meteorological station data to 10m height, shows a deviated figures.

Vacuum properties of sintered SmCo/sub 5/ magnets  

SciTech Connect

There are many desirable applications of powerful, rare-earth permanent magnets made of sintered SmCo/sub 5/ material within vacuum systems. One application is the use of large numbers of SmCo/sub 5/ magnets to provide the undulating magnetic field in a free-electron-laser wiggler structure. Tests were conducted at Los Alamos to determine the suitability of SmCo/sub 5/ magnets in a vacuum environment of approx. 10/sup -6/ torr. The vacuum performances of the wiggler system, with and without the SmCo/sub 5/ magnets (having approx. 11% of the total surface area) installed, were essentially identical. These tests indicate that SmCo/sub 5/ magnets have good vacuum properties and are suitable for use in many vacuum systems.

Covariant Spectator Theory of np scattering: Isoscalar interaction currents  

SciTech Connect

Using the Covariant Spectator Theory (CST), one boson exchange (OBE) models have been found that give precision fits to low energy $np$ scattering and the deuteron binding energy. The boson-nucleon vertices used in these models contain a momentum dependence that requires a new class of interaction currents for use with electromagnetic interactions. Current conservation requires that these new interaction currents satisfy a two-body Ward-Takahashi (WT), and using principals of {\\it simplicity\\/} and {\\it picture independence\\/}, these currents can be uniquely determined. The results lead to general formulae for a two-body current that can be expressed in terms of relativistic $np$ wave functions, ${\\it \\Psi}$, and two convenient truncated wave functions, ${\\it \\Psi}^{(2)}$ and $\\widehat {\\it \\Psi}$, which contain all of the information needed for the explicit evaluation of the contributions from the interaction current. These three wave functions can be calculated from the CST bound or scattering state equations (and their off-shell extrapolations). A companion paper uses this formalism to evaluate the deuteron magnetic moment.

STABILITY CONSTANTS OF NP(V) COMPLEXES WITH FLOURIDE AND SULFATE AT VARIABLE TEMPERATURES  

SciTech Connect

A solvent extraction method was used to determine the stability constants of Np(V) complexes with fluoride and sulfate in 1.0 M NaClO{sub 4} from 25 C to 60 C. The distribution ratio of Np(V) between the organic and aqueous phases was found to decrease as the concentrations of fluoride and sulfate were increased. Stability constants of the 1:1 Np(V)-fluoride complexes and the 1:1 Np(V)-sulfate and 1:2 Np(V)-sulfate complexes, dominant in the aqueous phase under the experimental conditions, were calculated from the effect of [F{sup -}] and [SO{sub 4}{sup 2-}] on the distribution ratio. The enthalpy and entropy of complexation were calculated from the stability constants at different temperatures by using the Van't Hoff equation.

Perceived community-based flood adaptation strategies under climate change in Nepal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Climate induced natural disasters and extreme events are escalating with the increased variability of climatic parameters due to climate change. This study assesses the flood adaptation strategies that are applicable at the community level in two Terai districts of Nepal. The data were collected through three focus group discussions and 210 household surveys. The study revealed that flood forecasting practices at community level included monitoring the extent of rainfall in upper catchments and identifying the position of clouds. 'Initiate communication', 'take care the affected people', and 'select the appropriate location to stay' were most preferred strategies during the flood. Similarly, 'exchanging helps with each other', 'preparing temporary settlement plan' and 'co-ordinating with government and other agencies' are most preferred post-flood adaptation strategies. Identification and assessment of locally-relevant flood adaptation strategies will help governments to choose adaptation strategies that are both effective and preferred by local people in vulnerable communities.

Combined upper limit for SM Higgs at the Tevatron  

SciTech Connect

We combine results from CDF and D0 on direct searches for a standard model (SM) Higgs boson (H) in p{bar p} collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. Compared to the previous Higgs Tevatron combination, more data and new channels (WH {yields} {tau}{nu}b{bar b}, VH {yields} {tau}{tau}b{bar b}/jj{tau}{tau}, VH {yields} jjb{bar b}, t{bar t}H {yields} t{bar t}b{bar b}) have been added. Most previously used channels have been reanalyzed to gain sensitivity. We use the latest parton distribution functions and gg {yields} H theoretical cross sections when comparing our limits to the SM predictions. With 2.0-3.6 fb{sup -1} of data analyzed at CDF, and 0.9-4.2 fb{sup -1} at D0, the 95%C.L. upper limits on Higgs boson production are a factor of 2.5 (0.86) times the SM cross section for a Higgs boson mass of m{sub H} = 115 (165) GeV/c{sup 2}. Based on simulation, the corresponding median expected upper limits are 2.4 (1.1). The mass range excluded at 95% C.L. for a SM Higgs has been extended to 160 < m{sub H} < 170 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Measurement of ? rays from 15N(p,?)16O cascade and 15N(p,?1?)12C reactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background The main energy production mechanism for massive stars during hydrogen burning is the CNO cycle. The reactions 15N(p,?)16O and 15N(p,?0)12C form a branch point in this cycle. The ratio of the corresponding reaction rates determines the CNO abundances evolving during this early stage of the star's life which affects the subsequent nucleosynthesis in later phases of stellar evolution. Determining the cross sections for these reactions at stellar energies is often very difficult. Measurements of other reactions that populate the same compound nucleus can often be used to indirectly determine the cross section of interest.Purpose The nuclear level properties of broad resonances in 16O which characterize the cross section of the reactions 15N(p,?)16O and 15N(p,?0)12C must be well known in order to accurately extrapolate the measured cross sections to the stellar energy range. The R-matrix formalism is a powerful technique for interpreting these cross sections and is greatly enhanced by additional data in other reaction channels. In a previous publication, measurements were reported for the cross section of the reaction 15N(p,?)16O for the ground state transition only. Concurrently, ?-ray measurements were recorded for the cascade transitions to the Ex = 6.050, 6.130, and 7.117 MeV bound states of 16O as well as from the reaction 15N(p,?1?)12C. Excitation curves for the cascade transitions have never been measured and the excitation curve data for the 15N(p,?1?)12C reaction found in the literature may suffer from substantial errors due to target contamination.Methods Angle integrated cross sections are measured over the proton energy range from Ep = 0.14 to 1.80 MeV for the ?-ray cascade transitions and for the reaction 15N(p,?1?)12C.Results De-excitations associated with several compound nucleus states in 16O are observed in both the ?-ray and ?1 channels. An R-matrix analysis is performed and partial decay widths are deduced for several previously unobserved decay branchings from these states.Conclusion For the first time, excitation curves for the cascade transitions to the 16O bound states at Ex = 6.050, 6.130, and 7.117 MeV are reported over the energy range from Ep = 0.14 to 1.80 MeV. In addition, an improved measurement of the 15N(p,?1?)12C excitation curve has been made over a similar energy range.

Influence of process on flux pinning for MTG SmBa2Cu3Oy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Two SmBa2Cu3Oy samples (Sm1 and Sm3) with different processes were fabricated by the melt-textured growth method to study the effect of heat treatment and argon atmosphere on flux pinning. Magnetic measurement shows that Sm1 is of lower transition temperature, lower irreversibility field and more pronounced second peak effect. But Sm3 has higher Tc, higher Hirr and less pronounced SP. It was found that the flux pinning of SM1 is stranger than that of SM3 in wide range of temperature. It evidences that the irreversibility field and critical current density are independent of each other. Discussion of flux pinning and the effect of Ar and 211 is made.

New Features of Shape Coexistence in {sup 152}Sm  

SciTech Connect

Excited states in {sup 152}Sm have been investigated with the {sup 152}Sm(n,n{sup '}gamma) reaction. The lowest four negative-parity band structures have been characterized in detail with respect to their absolute decay properties. Specifically, a new K{sup p}i=0{sup -} band has been assigned with its 1{sup -} band head at 1681 keV. This newly observed band has a remarkable similarity in its E1 transition rates for decay to the first excited K{sup p}i=0{sup +} band at 684 keV to the lowest K{sup p}i=0{sup -} band and its decay to the ground-state band. Based on these decay properties, as well as energy considerations, this new band is assigned as a K{sup p}i=0{sup -} octupole excitation based on the K{sup p}i=0{sub 2}{sup +} state. An emerging pattern of repeating excitations built on the 0{sub 2}{sup +} level similar to those built on the ground state may indicate that {sup 152}Sm is a complex example of shape coexistence rather than a critical point nucleus.

Complete fusion in 7Li+144,152Sm reactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Complete fusion cross sections for 7Li+144,152Sm reactions have been measured at energies around the Coulomb barrier by offline ?-counting technique. Measured cross sections for the above two reactions are found to be similar at energies well above the Coulomb barrier, however, at sub-barrier energies the cross sections for the 7Li+152Sm system are much higher compared to the 7Li+144Sm system, manifesting the effect of target deformation. Cross sections for the present reactions at above-barrier energies are found to be larger than previously measured reactions involving 6Li projectile with the same targets, possibly due to smaller breakup probability of 7Li than 6Li. Coupled-channels calculations show that the experimental fusion cross sections for both the systems are enhanced at subbarrier energies and suppressed at above-barrier energies compared to the respective one-dimensional barrier penetration model predictions. The calculations by different models show that the measured complete fusion cross sections at above-barrier energies are suppressed up to ?25% compared to the theoretical predictions. It also reveals that a large part of the suppression could be due to inelastic and transfer coupling.

Reduction of Np(VI) and Pu(VI) by organic chelating agents  

SciTech Connect

The reduction of NpO{sub 2}{sup 2+} and PuO{sub 2}{sup 2+} by oxalate, citrate, and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) was investigated in low ionic strength media and brines. This was done to help establish the stability of the An(VI) oxidation state depended on the pH nd relative strength of the various oxidation state-specific complexes. At low ionic strength and pH 6, NpO{sub 2}{sup 2+} was rapidly reduced to form NpO{sub 2}{sup +} organic complexes. At longer times, Np(IV) organic complexes were observed in the presence of citrate. PuO{sub 2}{sup 2+} was predominantly reduced to Pu{sup 4+}, resulting in the formation of organic complexes or polymeric/hydrolytic precipitates. The relative rates of reduction to the An(V) complex were EDTA > citrate > oxalate. Subsequent reduction to An(IV) complexes, however, occurred in the following order: citrate > EDTA > oxalate because of the stability of the An(VI)-EDTA complex. The presence of organic complexants led to the rapid reduction of NpO{sub 2}{sup 2+} and PuO{sub 2}{sup 2+} in G-Seep brine at pHs 5 and 7. At pHs 8 and 10 in ERDA-6 brine, carbonate and hydrolytic complexes predominated and slowed down or prevented the reduction of An(VI) by the organics present.

Gamow-Teller strength in Na23(n,p) and a comparison to Na23(?-,?)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report measurements of the Na23(n,p) differential cross section at an incident energy of 198 MeV and angles from 0° to 24° using the TRIUMF Charge Exchange Facility. From these data we determine Gamow-Teller (GT) transition probabilities to low lying 1/2+, 3/2+, and 5/2+ Ne23 states and the GT+ strength distribution up to 25 MeV excitation energy. The values of BGT+ to discrete states, and the GT+ strength below 10 MeV, are found to be in reasonable agreement with a full 1s-0d shell model calculation with a normalization factor of about 0.74. The GT+ strength above 10 MeV suggests the removal of strength from lower to higher excitation energies. We also compare the Na23(n,p) data with Na23(?-,?) data and find agreement between the values of BGT+ to discrete levels extracted from the (n,p) and (?-,?) reactions. The general consistency of the (n,p) and (?-,?) data, and the full 1s-0d shell model calculation, give confidence in a recent extraction of the weak pseudoscalar coupling from ?- capture on Na23. Finally, using both ?--decay and ?- capture data, we obtain unit cross sections from the Na23(n,p) measurement.

Ferromagnetic behavior of the Kondo lattice compound Np2PtGa3  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Here we report on a study of the ternary Np2PtGa3 compound. The x-ray-powder diffraction analysis reveals that the compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic CeCu2-type crystal structure (space group Imma) with lattice parameters a=0.4409(2) nm, b=0.7077(3) nm, and c=0.7683(3) nm at room temperature. The measurements of dc magnetization, specific heat, and electron transport properties in the temperature range 1.7–300 K and in magnetic fields up to 9 T imply that this intermetallic compound belongs to a class of ferromagnetic Kondo systems. The Curie temperature of TC? 26 K is determined from the magnetization and specific-heat data. An enhanced coefficient of the electronic specific heat ? = 180 mJ/(mol at. Np K2) and a ?lnT dependence of the electrical resistivity indicate the presence of a Kondo effect, which can be described in terms of the S=1 underscreened Kondo-lattice model. The estimated Kondo temperature TK?24 K, Hall mobility of ?16.8 cm2/V s, and effective mass of ?83me are consistent with an assumption that the heavy-fermion state develops in Np2PtGa3 at low temperatures. We compare the observed properties of Np2PtGa3 to that found in Np2PdGa3 and discuss their difference in regard to change in the exchange interaction between the conduction and localized 5f electrons. We have used the Fermi wave vector kF to evaluate the Rudermann-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY) exchange. Based on experimental data of the (U, Np)2(Pd, Pt)Ga3 compounds we suggest that the evolution of the magnetic ground states in these actinide compounds can be explained within the RKKY formalism.

Am phases in the matrix of a U-Pu-Zr alloy with Np, Am, and rare-earth elements  

SciTech Connect

Phases and microstructures in the matrix of an as-cast U-Pu-Zr alloy with 3 wt% Am, 2% Np, and 8% rare-earth elements were characterized by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The matrix consists primarily of two phases, both of which contain Am: ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am) (~70 at% U, 5% Np, 14% Pu, 1% Am, and 10% Zr) and ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am)Zr2 (~25% U, 2% Np, 10-15% Pu, 1-2% Am, and 55-60 at% Zr). These phases are similar to those in U-Pu-Zr alloys, although the Zr content in ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am) is higher than that in ?-(U, Pu) and the Zr content in ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am)Zr2 is lower than that in ?-UZr2. Nanocrystalline actinide oxides with structures similar to UO2 occurred in some areas, but may have formed by reactions with the atmosphere during sample handling. Planar features consisting of a central zone of ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am) bracketed by zones of ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am)Zr2 bound irregular polygons ranging in size from a few micrometers to a few tens of micrometers across. The rest of the matrix consists of elongated domains of ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am) and ?-(U, Np, Pu, Am)Zr2. Each of these domains is a few tens of nanometers across and a few hundred nanometers long. The domains display strong preferred orientations involving areas a few hundred nanometers to a few micrometers across.

Magnetic and electronic properties of NpCo2: Evidence for long-range magnetic order  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The magnetic and electronic properties of the cubic Laves phase intermetallic compound NpCo2 have been investigated by magnetization, specific heat, and electrical resistivity measurements. Magnetization data confirm previous results, i.e., an antiferromagneticlike order at 12.5 K and a metamagnetic transition at Bm ? 4.3 T at 3 K with a saturation moment of ?0.6 ?B. Although extensive neutron diffraction studies failed to establish the nature of the antiferromagnetic order, its occurrence is confirmed by specific heat measurements that also highlight the presence of magnetic fluctuations suppressed by the application of an external field larger than Bm. The observed high value of the electronic specific heat, ?0 ? 330 mJ/mol?K2 as T ? 0, and the minute magnetic entropy, Fermi liquid behavior at low temperature. The electronic structure of NpCo2 was examined theoretically and compared to experimental data. Local spin density approximation (LSDA) calculations show that this material is close to a magnetic instability and that ferromagnetic alignment of the Np moments is the most stable. LSDA+U calculations in the fully localized limit with U = 0 give reasonable agreement with the experimental Np moment value and their orbital and spin contributions.

The reduction of Np(VI) and Pu(VI) by organic chelating agents.  

SciTech Connect

The reduction of NpO{sup 2+} and PuO{sub 2}{sup 2+} by oxalate. citrate, and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) was investigated in low ionic strength media and brines. This was done to help establish the stability of the An(VI) oxidation state in the presence of organic complexants. The stability of the An(VI) oxidation state depended on the pH and relative strength of the various oxidation state-specific complexes. At low ionic strength and pH 6, NpO{sub 2}O{sup 2+} was rapidly reduced to form NpO{sub 2}{sup +} organic complexes. At longer times, Np(IV) organic complexes were observed in the presence of citrate. PuO{sub 2}{sup 2+} was predominantly reduced to Pu{sup 4+}, resulting in the formation of organic complexes or polymeric/hydrolytic precipitates. The relative rates of reduction to the An(V) complex were EDTA > citrate > oxalate. Subsequent reduction to An(IV) complexes, however, occurred in the following order: citrate > EDTA > oxalate because of the stability of the An(V)-EDTA complex. The presence of organic complexants led to the rapid reduction of NpO{sub 2}{sup 2+} and PuO{sub 2}P{sup 2+} in G-seep brine at pHs 5 and 7. At pHs 8 and 10 in ERDA-6 brine, carbonate and hydrolytic complexes predominated and slowed down or prevented the reduction of An(VI) by the organics present.

A condensed matter interpretation of SM fermions and gauge fields  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the bundle Aff(3) x C x /(R^3), with a geometric Dirac equation on it, as a three-dimensional geometric interpretation of the SM fermions. Each C x /(R^3) describes an electroweak doublet. The Dirac equation has a doubler-free staggered spatial discretization on the lattice space Aff(3) x C (Z^3). This space allows a simple physical interpretation as a phase space of a lattice of cells in R^3. We find the SM SU(3)_c x SU(2)_L x U(1)_Y action on Aff(3) x C x /(R^3) to be a maximal anomaly-free special gauge action preserving E(3) symmetry and symplectic structure, which can be constructed using two simple types of gauge-like lattice fields: Wilson gauge fields and correction terms for lattice deformations. The lattice fermion fields we propose to quantize as low energy states of a canonical quantum theory with Z_2-degenerated vacuum state. We construct anticommuting fermion operators for the resulting Z_2-valued (spin) field theory. A metric theory of gravity compatible with this model is presented too.

Advanced U–Np–Pu fuel to achieve long-life core in heavy water reactor  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The objective of this paper is to look at the possibility of approaching the long-life core comparable with reactor life-time. The main issues are centered on U–Np–Pu fuel in a tight lattice design with heavy water as a coolant. It is found that in a hard neutron spectrum thus obtained, a large fraction of 238Pu produced by neutron capture in 237Np not only protects plutonium against uncontrolled proliferation, but substantially contributes in keeping criticality due to improved fissile properties (its capture-to-fission ratio drops below unit). Equilibrium fuel composition demonstrates excellent conversion properties that yield the burn-up value as high as 200 GWd/t at extremely small reactivity swings.

Inclusive inelastic reaction np?pX at 795 MeV  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The inclusive reaction np?pX, where X includes a pion, has been studied at 795 MeV with measurements of the cross section d2?dp d?. Proton momentum spectra were measured for laboratory angles between 0° and 31°. These angles cover the full forward hemisphere in the center-of-mass system and give, with the use of symmetry assumptions, a value for the total reaction cross section, ?R=11.0±0.8 mb, exclusive of the np?d?0 reaction. The data are also presented as measurements of the cross section d2?dt dM, where t is the four-momentum transfer squared and M is the invariant missing mass. The results are compared with a model calculation of one-pion exchange that includes ? and ? exchange. The t dependence is also discussed in terms of a statistical model.

Magnetic and electronic properties of the ferromagnetic Kondo-lattice system Np2PdGa3  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Intermetallic compounds Lu2PdGa3 and Np2PdGa3 have been found to crystallize in an orthorhombic CeCu2-type structure with the Imma space group. The lattice parameters at room temperature are: a=0.4382(2), b=0.6870(3), and c=0.7593(3)?nm for Lu2PdGa3 and a=0.4445(2), b=0.7089(3), and c=0.7691(3)?nm for Np2PdGa3. The electronic ground-state properties of these compounds were established by magnetic, calorimetric, electrical resistivity, magnetoresistance, and Hall coefficient measurements. The experimental data reveal a metallic behavior for Pauli paramagnetic Lu2PdGa3, characterized by Sommerfeld ratio ?=2.5?mJ/K2?mol?Lu and temperature-independent susceptibility ?0?1×10?4?emu/mol. In contrast to the nonmagnetic Lu2PdGa3 reference, Np2PdGa3 behaves as a local-moment ferromagnet with the Curie temperature TC=62.5(2)?K. Low-temperature properties of Np2PdGa3 are characterized by a large Sommerfeld ratio ?=120(2)?mJ/K2?mol?Np and a small Fermi momentum kF=0.44?Å?1. The observed features in Np2PdGa3 are well interpreted by assuming competition of three different interactions: Rudermann-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY), crystal electric field (CEF) and Kondo effect, which are represented by respective energies kBTRKKY, ?CEF, and kBTK. We argue that Np2PdGa3 is the Np-based ferromagnetic Kondo-lattice system with TK

Local and bulk susceptibilities of Np intermetallics in their paramagnetic state

Mössbauer-effect investigations under applied magnetic field and magnetization studies of neptunium intermetallics in their paramagnetic state are reported. It is shown that the bulk and local susceptibilities at 4.2 K (?B and ?L, respectively) agree even for highly hybridized 5f-electron systems. The results indicate dominant orbital contributions to the magnetic moment also for paramagnetic neptunium heavy-fermion compounds. For these Np systems proportionalities between ?L, ?B, density of states at the Fermi energy, and the isomer shift are pointed out.

Luminescence properties of Sm{sup 3+} impurities in strontium lithium bismuth borate glasses  

SciTech Connect

In the present work, different concentrations of Sm{sup 3+}-doped strontium lithium bismuth borate glasses (SLBiB) were prepared by melt quench technique. The amorphous nature of the prepared glass samples was confirmed by X-ray diffraction and SEM analysis. Using the J-O intensity parameters, emission and decay measurements various radiative properties are studied. The nature of decay curves of {sup 4}G{sub 5/2} level for different Sm{sup 3+} ion concentrations in SLBiB glasses has been analyzed. The intensities of observed emission peaks and measured lifetimes decrease with the increase of Sm{sup 3+} ion concentration which may be due to energy transfer between excited Sm{sup 3+} ions through cross-relaxations and resonant energy channels.

Magnetic structure in Fe/Sm-Co exchange spring bilayers with intermixed interfaces.  

SciTech Connect

The depth profile of the intrinsic magnetic properties in an Fe/Sm-Co bilayer fabricated under nearly optimal spring-magnet conditions was determined by complementary studies of polarized neutron reflectometry and micromagnetic simulations. We found that at the Fe/Sm-Co interface, the magnetic properties change gradually at the length scale of 8 nm. In this intermixed interfacial region, the saturation magnetization and magnetic anisotropy are lower and the exchange stiffness is higher than values estimated from the model based on a mixture of Fe and Sm-Co phases. Therefore, the intermixed interface yields superior exchange coupling between the Fe and Sm-Co layers, but at the cost of average magnetization.

The QCD/SM working group: Summary report  

SciTech Connect

Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD), and more generally the physics of the Standard Model (SM), enter in many ways in high energy processes at TeV Colliders, and especially in hadron colliders (the Tevatron at Fermilab and the forthcoming LHC at CERN), First of all, at hadron colliders, QCD controls the parton luminosity, which rules the production rates of any particle or system with large invariant mass and/or large transverse momentum. Accurate predictions for any signal of possible ''New Physics'' sought at hadron colliders, as well as the corresponding backgrounds, require an improvement in the control of uncertainties on the determination of PDF and of the propagation of these uncertainties in the predictions. Furthermore, to fully exploit these new types of PDF with uncertainties, uniform tools (computer interfaces, standardization of the PDF evolution codes used by the various groups fitting PDF's) need to be proposed and developed. The dynamics of colour also affects, both in normalization and shape, various observables of the signals of any possible ''New Physics'' sought at the TeV scale, such as, e.g. the production rate, or the distributions in transverse momentum of the Higgs boson. Last, but not least, QCD governs many backgrounds to the searches for this ''New Physics''. Large and important QCD corrections may come from extra hard parton emission (and the corresponding virtual corrections), involving multi-leg and/or multi-loop amplitudes. This requires complex higher order calculations, and new methods have to be designed to compute the required multi-legs and/or multi-loop corrections in a tractable form. In the case of semi-inclusive observables, logarithmically enhanced contributions coming from multiple soft and collinear gluon emission require sophisticated QCD resummation techniques. Resummation is a catch-all name for efforts to extend the predictive power of QCD by summing the large logarithmic corrections to all orders in perturbation theory. In practice, the resummation formalism depends on the observable at issue, through the type of logarithm to be resummed, and the resummation methods. In parallel with this perturbative QCD-oriented working programme, the implementation of both QCD/SM and New physics in Monte Carlo event generators is confronted with a number of issues which deserve uniformization or improvements. The important issues are: (1) the problem of interfacing partonic event generators to showering Monte-Carlos; (2) an implementation using this interface to calculate backgrounds which are poorly simulated by the showering Monte-Carlos alone; (3) a comparison of the HERWIG and PYTHIA parton shower models with the predictions of soft gluon resummation; (4) studies of the underlying events at hadron colliders to check how well they are modeled by the Monte-Carlo generators.

DETERMINATION OF 237NP AND PU ISOTOPES IN LARGE SOIL SAMPLES BY INDUCTIVELY COUPLED PLASMA MASS SPECTROMETRY  

SciTech Connect

A new method for the determination of {sup 237}Np and Pu isotopes in large soil samples has been developed that provides enhanced uranium removal to facilitate assay by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). This method allows rapid preconcentration and separation of plutonium and neptunium in large soil samples for the measurement of {sup 237}Np and Pu isotopes by ICP-MS. {sup 238}U can interfere with {sup 239}Pu measurement by ICP-MS as {sup 238}UH{sup +} mass overlap and {sup 237}Np via {sup 238}U peak tailing. The method provides enhanced removal of uranium by separating Pu and Np initially on TEVA Resin, then transferring Pu to DGA resin for additional purification. The decontamination factor for removal of uranium from plutonium for this method is greater than 1 x 10{sup 6}. Alpha spectrometry can also be applied so that the shorter-lived {sup 238}Pu isotope can be measured successfully. {sup 239}Pu, {sup 242}Pu and {sup 237}Np were measured by ICP-MS, while {sup 236}Pu and {sup 238}Pu were measured by alpha spectrometry.

RAPID DETERMINATION OF 237 NP AND PU ISOTOPES IN WATER BY INDUCTIVELY COUPLED PLASMA MASS SPECTROMETRY AND ALPHA SPECTROMETRY  

SciTech Connect

A new method that allows rapid preconcentration and separation of plutonium and neptunium in water samples was developed for the measurement of {sup 237}Np and Pu isotopes by inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and alpha spectrometry; a hybrid approach. {sup 238}U can interfere with {sup 239}Pu measurement by ICP-MS as {sup 238}UH{sup +} mass overlap and {sup 237}Np via peak tailing. The method provide enhanced removal of uranium by separating Pu and Np initially on TEVA Resin, then moving Pu to DGA resin for additional removal of uranium. The decontamination factor for uranium from Pu is almost 100,000 and the decontamination factor for U from Np is greater than 10,000. This method uses stacked extraction chromatography cartridges and vacuum box technology to facilitate rapid separations. Preconcentration is performed using a streamlined calcium phosphate precipitation method. Purified solutions are split between ICP-MS and alpha spectrometry so that long and short-lived Pu isotopes can be measured successfully. The method allows for simultaneous extraction of 20 samples (including QC samples) in 4 to 6 hours, and can also be used for emergency response. {sup 239}Pu, {sup 242}Pu and {sup 237}Np were measured by ICP-MS, while {sup 236}Pu, {sup 238}Pu, and {sup 239}Pu were measured by alpha spectrometry.

New heavy-fermion system, NpBe13, with a comparison to UBe13 and PuBe13  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have prepared single crystals of NpBe13, Np0.68U0.32Be13, and PuBe13 and measured their resistivity, susceptibility, and specific heat down to low temperatures. NpBe13 has an itinerant-electron magnetic transition at 3.4 K, with a large temperature-dependent specific heat above this transition that is quite similar to that observed in the heavy-fermion superconductor UBe13 and a ?(T=0) of approximately 900 mJ/mole K2. PuBe13 may be described as a Kondo-type system, with certain inconsistencies. The data are compared to results for UBe13 and are consistent with a narrow f band at the Fermi energy in UBe13 moving lower in energy with the addition of f electrons in heavier actinide elements to create a Kondo resonance by PuBe13.

Study of the pp-> np+ reaction at 1.25 GeV with HADES  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In pp collisions at 1.25 GeV kinetic energy, the HADES collaboration aimed at investigating the di-electron production related to (1232) Dalitz decay ( + ! pe+e?). In order to constrain the models predicting the cross section and the production mechanisms of resonance, the hadronic channels have been measured and studied in parallel to the leptonic channels. The analyses of pp ! np + and pp ! pp 0 channels and the comparison to simulations are presented in this contribution, in particular the angular distributions being sensitive to production and decay.

Study of the $pp \\to np?^+$ reaction at 1.25 GeV with HADES  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In pp collisions at 1.25 GeV kinetic energy, the HADES collaboration aimed at investigating the di-electron production related to $\\Delta$ (1232) Dalitz decay ($\\Delta^+ \\to pe^+e^-$). In order to constrain the models predicting the cross section and the production mechanisms of $\\Delta$ resonance, the hadronic channels have been measured and studied in parallel to the leptonic channels. The analyses of $pp\\to np\\pi^+$ and $pp\\to pp\\pi^0$ channels and the comparison to simulations are presented in this contribution, in particular the angular distributions being sensitive to $\\Delta$ production and decay. The accurate acceptance corrections have been performed as well, which could be tested in all the phase space region thanks to the high statistic data. These analyses result in an overall agreement with the one-$\\pi$ exchange model and previous data.

First-principles investigation of higher oxides of uranium and neptunium: U3O8 and Np2O5  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A computational study is presented of the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of U3O8 and Np2O5, which are actinide oxides in a higher oxidation state than the tetravalent state of the common dioxide phases, UO2 and NpO2. The calculations are based on the density functional theory+U approach, in which additional Coulomb correlations on the actinide atom are taken into account. The calculated properties of these two higher oxidized actinide oxides are analyzed and compared to those of their tetravalent analogs. The optimized structural parameters of these noncubic oxides are found to be in reasonable agreement with available experimental data. U3O8 is predicted to be a magnetic insulator, having one U atom in a hexavalent oxidation state and two U atoms in a pentavalent oxidation state. For Np2O5, which is also predicted to be an insulator, a complicated noncollinear magnetic structure is computed, leading to a nonzero overall magnetization with a slight antiferromagnetic canting. The calculated electronic structures are presented and the variation of the U 5f or Np 5f–O 2p hybridization with the oxidation state is analyzed. With increasing oxygen content, the nearly localized 5f electrons of the actinide elements are more positioned near the Fermi level and the hybridization between 5f and 2p states is markedly increased.

Valence-transition-induced 5×5 surface reconstruction of Sm(0001)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Single-crystal SM(0001) surfaces have been grown epitaxially on Mo(110). At low temperatures LEED shows a 5×5 surface reconstruction. This new type of valence-transition-induced reconstruction corresponds to a 25% expansion of the interatomic distances in the topmost hexagonal surface layer. At room temperature the 5×5 LEED pattern disappears due to a disordering of the surface. This suggests a very low melting temperature for the surface which may have implications for the understanding of the anomalous melting temperature of Sm metal.

Single ?^- production in np collisions for excess energies up to 90 MeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The quasifree reaction $np\\to pp\\pim$ was studied in a kinematically complete experiment by bombarding a liquid hydrogen target with a deuteron beam of momentum 1.85 GeV/c and analyzing the data along the lines of the spectator model. In addition to the three charged ejectiles the spectator proton was also detected in the large-acceptance time-of-flight spectrometer COSY-TOF. It was identified by its momentum and flight direction thus yielding access to the Fermi motion of the bound neutron and to the effective neutron 4-momentum vector $\\mathbb{P}_n$ which differed from event to event. A range of almost 90 MeV excess energy above threshold was covered. Energy dependent angular distributions, invariant mass spectra as well as fully covered Dalitz plots were deduced. Sizeable $pp$ FSI effects were found as were contributions of $p$ and $d$ partial waves. The behavior of the elementary cross section $\\sigma_{01}$ close to threshold is discussed in view of new cross section data. In comparison with existing literature data the results provide a sensitive test of the spectator model.

Electronic structure and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy of the ?, ?, and ? phases of Np  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The electronic structure, density of states, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) intensities of the ?, ?, and ? phases of Np have been theoretically determined from self-consistent, fully relativistic, linear muffin-tin-orbital band-structure calculations. The calculated XPS intensities show a large f peak that narrows (due to the larger volumes per atom) and moves closer to the Fermi energy as one progresses through the ?, ?, and ? phases. Experimental XPS intensities of the ? and ? phases are also presented and compared to the theoretical calculations. Experimentally, the ? and ? intensities are found to be almost identical, and do not show any evidence for the theoretically predicted f-band narrowing. In addition, there is a large additional experimental intensity at higher binding energy that is not present in the calculations. This extra intensity may be evidence for quasilocalized behavior of the 5f electronic states that is induced by the XPS process. For example, the low-energy tail may be related to either multiplet or satellite structure due to final-state localized atomiclike correlation effects. © 1996 The American Physical Society.

Correct implementation of the Argonne QuickSite{sup SM} process for preremedial site investigations  

SciTech Connect

Expedited site characterization (ESC), developed by Argonne National Laboratory, is an interactive, integrated process emphasizing the use of existing data of sufficient quality, multiple complementary characterization methods, and on-site decision making to optimize environmental site investigations. The Argonne ESC is the basis for the provisional ESC standard guide of the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). QuickSite{sup SM} is the implementation package developed by Argonne to facilitate ESC of sites contaminated with hazardous wastes. At various sites, Argonne has successfully implemented QuickSite{sup SM} and demonstrated the technical superiority of the ESC process over traditional methodologies guided by statistics and random-sampling approaches. A key feature in the success of QuickSite{sup SM} investigations is achieving an understanding of the subsurface geologic and hydrogeologic controls and processes at a site before extensive sampling efforts begin. The QuickSite{sup SM} investigation at the Tustin Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in California will be used to illustrate the importance of understanding these potential controls in minimizing sampling activities and correctly predicting potential contaminant migration patterns for risk assessment.

Stabilization of temperature dependence of band Gap by introducing nitrogen ion into GaInNP alloy  

SciTech Connect

The photoluminescence (PL) spectra of GaInNP are observed to survey the origin of the unique behavior of the band gap caused by incorporating nitrogen ions. The temperature dependence of the PL peak position is carefully analyzed. It is found that the reduction of the temperature alteration owing to the nitrogen incorporation arises from the hybridization between the nitrogen local 3s and 3p orbitals and the conduction band. In the GaInNP and host GaInP with the indium content around 50%, which has a direct band gap slightly lower than an X-valley, the band gap shrinkage with temperature is mediated by an LA phonon at X point.

Fluorescence properties and electron paramagnetic resonance studies of {gamma}-irradiated Sm{sup 3+}-doped oxyfluoroborate glasses  

SciTech Connect

The permanent photoinduced valence manipulation of samarium doped oxyfluoroborate glasses as a function of {gamma}-ray irradiation has been investigated using a steady-state fluorescence and electron paramagnetic resonance techniques. An increase in SrF{sub 2} content in the glass led to the red shift of the peaks in as prepared glass, while in irradiated glasses this led to the decrease in defect formation as well as increase in photoreduction of Sm{sup 3+} to Sm{sup 2+} ion. The energy transfer mechanism of induced permanent photoreduction of Sm{sup 3+} to Sm{sup 2+} ions in oxyfluoroborate glasses has been discussed. The decay analysis shows exponential behavior before irradiation and non-exponential behavior after irradiation. The energy transfer in irradiated glasses increases with the increase in SrF{sub 2} content in the glass and also with the irradiation dose.

Mass and nuclear charge yields for 237Np(2nth,f) at different fission fragment kinetic energies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The recoil mass separator LOHENGRIN of the Laue-Langevin Institute Grenoble has been used to measure for the first time, the yields of light fission fragments from the fissioning system: 23993Np; this odd-Z nucleus is formed after double thermal neutron capture in a 23993Np target. The mass distributions were measured for different kinetic energies between 92 and 115.5 MeV, but the nuclear charge distributions were determined only up to 112 MeV. These distributions are compared to the distributions obtained for the even-even system 24094Pu. At high kinetic energy, the mass distribution shows a prominent peak around mass number AL = 106. These cold fragmentations are discussed in terms of a calculation based on a scission point model extrapolated to the cold fission case. As expected for an odd-Z fissioning nucleus, the nuclear charge distributions do not reveal any odd-even effect. The global neutron odd-even effect is found to be (8.1 ± 1.5)%. A simple model has been used to show that most of the neutron odd-even effect results from prompt neutron evaporation from the fragments.

Creation of a neutrino laboratory for search for sterile neutrino at SM-3 reactor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In connection with the question of possible existence of sterile neutrino the laboratory on the basis of SM-3 reactor was created to search for oscillations of reactor antineutrino. A prototype of a neutrino detector with scintillator volume of 400 l can be moved at the distance of 6-11 m from the reactor core. The measurements of background conditions have been made. It is shown that the main experimental problem is associated with cosmic radiation background. Test measurements of dependence of a reactor antineutrino flux on the distance from a reactor core have been made. The prospects of search for oscillations of reactor antineutrino at short distances are discussed.

Sm and DNA Binding by dual reactive B cells requires distinct V{sub H}, V{sub {kappa}}, and V{sub H} CDR3 structures  

SciTech Connect

We have previously demonstrated an overlap of the anti-Sm and anti-DNA responses in MRL/Mp-Ipr/Ipr mice. The Ab produced by many anti-Sm hybridomas bind DNA and are encoded by Ig V genes used by anti-DNA hybridomas. In addition, some anti-Sm Ab that bind DNA have acquired mutations that improve DNA binding, indicating that DNA is a selecting Ag in the anti-Sm response. To gain insight into the basis for the dual binding ability of these Ab, we coexpressed the H chain from the anti-Sm hybridoma 2-12 with nine different L chains. Hybridoma 2-12 binds Sm but not DNA, yet expresses the same J558 V{sub H} gene as three anti-Sm hybridomas that bind ssDNA and at least one anti-DNA hybridoma that does not bind Sm. We found that most of the transfectoma Ab bind Sm, but their avidities vary over more than 3 orders of magnitude. Five of the nine transfectoma Ab bind ssDNA, and none bind dsDNA. In general, the ability to bind each Ag follows the binding ability of the hybridoma from which the L chain is derived. H Chain swapping experiments indicate that the H chain, V{sub H} CDR3 in particular contributes to the binding of both Sm and DNA. We conclude that Sm and DNA select for distinct features of V{sub H}, V{sub {kappa}}, and V{sub H} CDR3, suggesting selection by both Ag in the anti-Sm response.

Extraction of Np(IV) by Di-n-butylphosphoric and di-iso-amylphosphoric acids from aqueous HNO{sub 3}  

SciTech Connect

The interaction of Np(IV) with di-n-butylphosphoric (DBP) and di-iso-amylphosphoric (DIAP) acids is studied at room temperature in the biphasic extraction systems H{sub 2}O-HNO{sub 3}-TBP(TIAP)-n-decane (CCL{sub 4}) (TBP = tributylphosphate, TIAP = tri-iso-amylphosphate) for DBP (DIAP) concentrations from 0.91{center_dot}10{sup -3} to 4.16{center_dot}10{sup -2} M, HNO{sub 3} {le} 12 M, and TBP (TIAP) {le} 1.1 M. If n-decane is used as the solvent, Np concentrates mainly in the interfacial crud (IFC). As (HNO{sub 3}) in the aqueous phase and (TBP) (TIAP) in the organic phase increase, the amount of Np(IV) concentrated in the IFC decreases. In systems with CCl{sub 4}, Np(IV) does not concentrate in the IFC. Increasing (TBP) (TIAP) in the organic phase inhibits the interaction of Np(IV) with DBP (DIAP) in CCl{sub 4} and n-decane.

Effect of milling time on magnetic properties and structures of bulk Sm-Co/{alpha}-(Fe, Co) nanocomposite magnets  

SciTech Connect

Bulk Sm-Co/{alpha}-(Fe,Co) nanocomposite magnets were fabricated by hot pressing composite powders prepared by high-energy ball milling of magnetically hard SmCo{sub 5} powder and magnetically soft Fe powder. The bulk magnets had a nanocomposite structure consisting of Sm-Co matrix (1:5 H and 1:7 H phases) and {alpha}-(Fe,Co) phases. The Fe-Co particles were distributed uniformly in the Sm-Co matrix. The milling time strongly affects the structures and the magnetic properties of the bulk magnets. Increasing milling time led to a decrease of the amount of 1:5 H phase, an increase in the phase fraction of the 1:7 H phase, and a decrease in the amount of soft phase, which resulted in an increase in magnetization and a decrease in coercivity. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)/energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) analyses revealed that inter-diffusion took place between the Sm-Co matrix and Fe particles during the processing.

Magnetism and superconductivity in RPtSi (R=La, Ce, Nd, and Sm)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Although many studies have been made on the nonmagnetic heavy fermion CePtSi belonging to the ?-ThSi2 structure, to the best of our knowledge no studies have been reported in the other rare-earth members of this series. In this paper, we report our resistivity, magnetization, and heat-capacity studies on NdPtSi and SmPtSi. We have established bulk antiferromagnetic ordering in NdPtSi below 3.8 K and ferromagnetic ordering in SmPtSi below 15 K. The heat-capacity studies show large contribution from the crystal-field effects. We have also established bulk superconductivity below 3.8 K in LaPtSi from resistivity, susceptibility, and heat-capacity studies. A detailed study of the influence of paramagnetic impurities (Nd and Ce) on the superconductivity of LaPtSi has been made. From this study, we are able to show that the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) decreases with the substitution of Nd impurities and this can be explained using Abrikosov and Gor’kov theory. On the other hand, Ce impurities show large depression of Tc which we ascribe to the Kondo effect due to Ce aotms with the Kondo temperature, Tk?0.25Tc. The observed data have been analyzed using recent quantum Monte Carlo calculations by Jarrel for superconductors with arbitrary Tk values.

Suppression of complete fusion in the Li6+Sm144 reaction  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Complete fusion excitation function for the Li6+Sm144 reaction has been measured at near barrier energies by the activation technique. Coupled-channel calculations show an enhancement in fusion cross section at energies below the barrier compared to the one-dimensional barrier penetration model calculation, but they overpredict it in the entire energy range compared to the experimental data. Reduced fusion cross sections for the present system at energies normalized to the Coulomb barrier were also found to be systematically lower than those with strongly bound projectiles forming a similar compound nucleus. These two observations conclusively show that the complete fusion cross section, at above barrier energies, is suppressed by ~32% in the Li6+Sm144 reaction. Reanalyses of existing fusion data for Li7+Ho165 and Li7+Tb159 also show a suppression compared to those with strongly bound projectiles, which contradicts earlier conclusions. The fusion suppression factor seems to exhibit a systematic behavior with respect to the breakup threshold of the projectile and the atomic number of the target nucleus.

RE/ZrO{sub 2} (RE = Sm, Eu) composite oxide nano-materials: Synthesis and applications in photocatalysis  

SciTech Connect

Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • RE/ZrO{sub 2} (RE = Sm, Eu) nano-materials have been successfully synthesized. • Defect and electron structures determine the absorption properties on visible light. • Nano-sized Zr{sub 0.8}Sm{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} has good visible-light-responsive photocatalytic activities. • In the future, it can be used in wastewater treatment and environmental protection. - Abstract: Zirconia modified by Samarium/Europium, RE/ZrO{sub 2} (RE = Sm, Eu), composite oxide nano-materials have been successfully synthesized by improved sol–gel method. Characterization results show that X-ray diffraction (XRD) peaks of products gradually shift to the lower angle with the increase of rare earth which implies that the lattice distances of RE/ZrO{sub 2} nano-materials are gradually enlarged. Moreover, the molar ratios between zirconium and rare earth are consistent with the chemical formula and both of them are uniformly distributed in samples. Optical properties indicate that defect structures and electron configurations of RE/ZrO{sub 2} (RE = Sm, Eu) with single phase determine their absorption properties on visible light. Photocatalytic experiments indicate Zr{sub 0.8}Sm{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} nano-crystals have excellent visible-light-responsive photocatalytic activities on Methylene blue and Rhodamine B which results from the special defect structure, suitable electronic configuration, and larger specific surface area. It follows that Zr{sub 0.8}Sm{sub 0.2}O{sub 2??} nano-crystals are new visible-light-responsive photocatalysts which can be applied in dye wastewater treatment and environmental protection in the future.

Phase Characteristics of a Number of U-Pu-Am-Np-Zr Metallic Alloys for Use as Fast Reactor Fuels  

SciTech Connect

Metallic fuel alloys consisting of uranium, plutonium, and zirconium with minor additions of americium and neptunium are under evaluation for potential use to transmute long-lived transuranic actinide isotopes in fast reactors. A series of test designs for the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) have been irradiated in the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR), designated as the AFC-1 and AFC-2 designs. Metal fuel compositions in these designs have included varying amounts of U, Pu, Zr, and minor actinides (Am, Np). Investigations into the phase behavior and relationships based on the alloy constituents have been conducted using x-ray diffraction and differential thermal analysis. Results of these investigations, along with proposed relationships between observed behavior and alloy composition, are provided. In general, observed behaviors can be predicted by a ternary U-Pu-Zr phase diagram, with transition temperatures being most dependent on U content. Furthermore, the enthalpy associated with transitions is strongly dependent on the as-cast microstructural characteristics.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In pp collisions at 1.25 GeV kinetic energy, the HADES collaboration aimed at investigating the di-electron production related to $\\Delta$ (1232) Dalitz decay ($\\Delta^+ \\to pe^+e^-$). In order to constrain the models predicting the cross section and the production mechanisms of $\\Delta$ resonance, the hadronic channels have been measured and studied in parallel to the leptonic channels. The analyses of $pp\\to np\\pi^+$ and $pp\\to pp\\pi^0$ channels and the comparison to simulations are presented in this contribution, in particular the angular distributions being sensitive to $\\Delta$ production and decay. The accurate acceptance corrections have been performed as well, which could be tested in all the phase space region thanks to the high statistic data. These analyses result in an overall agreement with the one-$\\pi$ exchange model and previous data.

Pressure Induced Critical Behavior of Ferromagnetic Phase Transition in Sm-Nd-Sr Manganites  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report on the hydrostatic pressure dependence of the order of ferromagnetic (FM) to paramagnetic (PM) phase transition in a (Sm0.7Nd0.3)0.52Sr0.48MnO3 single crystal. At ambient pressure, the system undergoes a first-order FM-PM phase transition at 146 K. The application of pressure increases the TC, suppresses the hysteresis width, and thus makes the transition second order. We have analyzed the critical behavior associated with the second-order FM-PM transition in the presence of an external pressure (12.1 kbar) and obtained the critical exponents ?=0.358, ?=1.297, and ?=4.536, which are close to those predicted for the three-dimensional Heisenberg system. Using these values of ?, ?, and TC (?176??K), one can scale the magnetization data below and above TC following a single equation of state.

Dipole Relaxation, Aggregation, and X-Ray Effects in KCl Doped with Eu++, Yb++, or Sm++  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The behavior of impurity-vacancy (I-V) dipoles has been studied in KCl single crystals doped with Eu++, Yb++, or Sm++, using the ionic-thermocurrents technique. The activation energies and frequency factors for dipole relaxation have been determined. The aggregation of these dipoles in KCl: Eu++ follows third-order kinetics in the temperature range 295-323 °K, and their decay rate is comparable to that of KCl: Sr++. The activation energy and frequency factor for the formation of trimers have also been determined. It has proved possible to destroy these rare-earth I-V dipolar systems by irradiation with x rays, and to recover them on subsequent heating or irradiation with a Xe-Hg lamp. This process is postulated to take place through charge conversion of the I-V dipole constituents.

Integration plan required by performance agreement SM 7.2.1  

SciTech Connect

Fluor Daniel Hanford, Inc. and its major subcontractors are in agreement that environmental monitoring performed under the Project Hanford Management Contract is to be done in accordance with a single, integrated program. The purpose of this Integration Plan for Environmental Monitoring is to document the policies, systems, and processes being put in place to meet one key objective: manage and integrate a technically competent, multi-media ambient environmental monitoring program, in an efficient, cost effective manner. Fluor Daniel Hanford, Inc. and its major subcontractors also commit to conducting business in a manner consistent with the International Standards Organization 14000 Environmental Management System concepts. Because the integration of sitewide groundwater monitoring activities is managed by the Environmental Restoration Contractor, groundwater monitoring it is outside the scope of this document. Therefore, for the purpose of this Integration Plan for Environmental Monitoring, the Integrated Environmental Monitoring Program is defined as applicable to all environmental media except groundwater. This document provides recommendations on future activities to better integrate the overall environmental monitoring program, with emphasis on the near-field program. In addition, included is the Fluor Daniel Hanford, Inc. team review of the environmental monitoring activities on the Hanford Site, with concurrence of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Bechtel Hanford, Inc. (The narrative provided later in the Discussion Section describes the review and consideration given to each topic.) This document was developed to meet the requirements of the Project Hanford Management Contract performance agreement (SM7.2) and the tenets of the U.S. Department of Energy's Effluent and Environmental Monitoring Planning Process. This Plan is prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy, Richland Operations Office, Environmental Assurance, Permits, and Policy Division to complete the requirements specified in the Performance Expectation 7.2.1, within the SM7 Environmental, Safety, and Health section of the Project Hanford Management Contract.

Photoluminescence properties and energy levels of RE (RE?=?Pr, Sm, Er, Tm) in layered-CaZnOS oxysulfide  

SciTech Connect

RE{sup 3+} (RE?=?Pr, Sm, Er, Tm)-activated CaZnOS samples were prepared by a solid-state reaction method at high temperature, and their photoluminescence properties were investigated. Doping with RE{sup 3+} (RE?=?Pr, Sm, Er, Tm) into layered-CaZnOS resulted in typical RE{sup 3+} (RE?=?Pr, Sm, Er, Tm) f-f line absorptions and emissions, as well as the charge transfer band of Sm{sup 3+} at about 3.3?eV. The energy level scheme containing the position of the 4f and 5d levels of all divalent and trivalent lanthanide ions with respect to the valence and conduction bands of CaZnOS has been constructed based on the new data presented in this work, together with the data from literature on Ce{sup 3+} and Eu{sup 2+} doping in CaZnOS. The detailed energy level scheme provides a platform for interpreting the optical spectra and could be used to comment on the valence stability of the lanthanide ions in CaZnOS.

New glasses giving the crystallization of Sm{sup 3+}-doped Sr {sub x} Ba{sub 1-} {sub x} Nb{sub 2}O{sub 6} (SBN) ferroelectrics have been developed in the Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}-SrO-BaO-Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}-B{sub 2}O{sub 3} system, and the formation of SBN crystal dots and lines by continuous wave Nd:YAG laser (wavelength:1064 nm, power: 1 W) irradiations, i.e., samarium atom heat processing, has been examined. The formation of Sm{sup 3+}-doped SBN non-linear optical crystals is confirmed from X-ray diffraction analyses, micro-Raman scattering spectra, second harmonic generations, and photoluminescence spectra. Sm{sup 3+}-doped SBN crystal dots with the diameters of 20-70 {mu}m and lines with the widths of 20-40 {mu}m are written at the surface of some glasses such as 10Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}.10SrO.10BaO.20Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}.50B{sub 2}O{sub 3} (mol%) by Nd:YAG laser irradiations with the irradiation times of 20-70 s for the dots and with the scanning speeds of 1-5 {mu}m/s for the lines. The present study suggests that the samarium atom heat processing has a potential for the patterning of optical waveguides consisting of ferroelectric SBN crystals in glass substrates.

Covariant spectator theory of $np$ scattering:\\\\ Phase shifts obtained from precision fits to data below 350 MeV  

SciTech Connect

Using the covariant spectator theory (CST), we present two one boson exchange kernels that have been successfully adjusted to fit the 2007 world $np$ data (containing 3788 data) below 350 MeV. One model (which we designate WJC-1) has 27 parameters and fits with a chi2/N = 1.06. The other model (designated WJC-2) has only 15 parameters and fits with a chi2/N = 1.12. Both of these models also reproduce the experimental triton binding energy without introducing additional irreducible three-nucleon forces. One result of this work is a new phase shift analysis, updated for all data until 2006, which is useful even if one does not work within the CST. In carrying out these fits we have reviewed the entire data base, adding new data not previously used in other high precision fits and restoring some data omitted in previous fits. A full discussion and evaluation of the 2007 data base is presented.

Electronic structure and anomalous properties of UAl2, NpAl2, and PuAl2  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The electronic ground states of UAl2, NpAl2, and PuAl2 in the C15 crystal structure were determined by performing self-consistent, semirelativistic, warped muffin-tin linear augmented-plane-wave electronic band-structure calculations. Then the densities of states and band states were determined by obtaining solutions including spin-orbit interactions with the self-consistent semirelativistic potential. The partial density of states functions obtained for these systems indicate strong d-f hybridization. A consistent procedure for determining the spin fluctuation parameters from the experimental data was obtained. This procedure was used to obtain the spin-fluctuation parameters from UAl2. It is found that this procedure yields parameters that are different from previous estimates and indicates that the calculated parameters such as the bare density of states at the Fermi energy N(0), and the occupied f-band width are consistent with the band-structure values. It is found that although the actinide-actinide separation is about the same, the electronic structure near EF is different. These calculations indicate that both d-f hybridization and spin-orbit coupling are important in the electronic structure of these systems.

To the best of our knowledge, these are the first calculations of the Cl K-edge spectra of NpCl62- and PuCl62-. In addition, the spectra are simulated with and without the environmental effects of the host crystal as well as ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) to capture the dynamical effects due to atomic motion.

Crystal structure of a novel Sm-like protein of putative cyanophage origin at 2.60 Å resolution  

SciTech Connect

ECX21941 represents a very large family (over 600 members) of novel, ocean metagenome-specific proteins identified by clustering of the dataset from the Global Ocean Sampling expedition. The crystal structure of ECX21941 reveals unexpected similarity to Sm/LSm proteins, which are important RNA-binding proteins, despite no detectable sequence similarity. The ECX21941 protein assembles as a homopentamer in solution and in the crystal structure when expressed in Escherichia coli and represents the first pentameric structure for this Sm/LSm family of proteins, although the actual oligomeric form in vivo is currently not known. The genomic neighborhood analysis of ECX21941 and its homologs combined with sequence similarity searches suggest a cyanophage origin for this protein. The specific functions of members of this family are unknown, but our structure analysis of ECX21941 indicates nucleic acid-binding capabilities and suggests a role in RNA and/or DNA processing.

Effects of anharmonic vibration on large-angle quasi-elastic scattering of 16O+144Sm  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the effects of double octupole and quadrupole phonon excitations in the 144Sm nucleus on quasi-elastic 16O+144Sm scattering at backward angles. To this end, we use the coupled-channels framework, taking into account explicitly the anharmonicities of the vibrations. We use the same coupling scheme as that previously employed to explain the experimental data of sub-barrier fusion cross sections for the same system. We show that the experimental data for the quasi-elastic cross sections are well reproduced in this way, although the quasi-elastic barrier distribution has a distinct high energy peak which is somewhat smeared in the experimental barrier distribution. We also discuss the effects of proton transfer on the quasi-elastic barrier distribution. Our study indicates that the fusion and quasi-elastic barrier distributions for this system cannot be accounted for simultaneously with the standard coupled-channels approach.

The X-ray diffraction spectra of A/sub 2/(NpO/sub 2/)/sub 2/V/sub 2/O/sub 8/ are indexed in the monoclinic system by analogy to the uranium carnotite-like material. The Np phases are thermally much less stable than are the U phases. The /sup 237/Np Mossbauer spectra indicate strong quadrupolar interactions and isomer shift values among the most positive of the hexavalent neptunium compounds.

Minimizing the Lead-Acid Battery Bank Capacity through a Solar PV - Wind Turbine Hybrid System for a high-altitude village in the Nepal Himalayas  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Of the estimated 1.6-2 billion people who lacked access to electricity at the end of the last millennium, millions have gained access to basic indoor lighting through off grid solar PV home systems with lead acid battery storage over the last decade. In Nepal, through government subsidy programs and INGO/NGO projects, around 350,000 solar PV home systems have been installed since 2001, mainly in remote, high altitude Himalayan communities. The author's field experience shows that within 6-24 months, 50-70% of the solar PV home systems are either not properly functioning, or not working at all. This is mainly due to substandard equipment, lack of user awareness, inability to maintain their systems, as well as the nonexistence of after sales services. Thus, an estimated 250,000 “dead”, flooded lead-acid batteries are either unsafely disposed of or lying around, posing huge potential hazards for people and the unique yet fragile Himalayan ecosystem. The research conducted demonstrates that by tapping into more than one renewable energy resource, converting the local available solar and wind resources into electricity through a solar PV - wind turbine hybrid RAPS (Remote Area Power Supply) system, the lead-acid battery bank capacity can be minimized by 57%, compared to an equivalent energy generating solar PV RAPS system, without jeopardizing, or reducing the village's load demands. This project shows that wind and solar resources are complimentary to each other over several hours in an average day. Thus, by utilizing both of the local wind and solar resources and converting them into electricity to meet the loads directly or to store into the lead-acid battery bank, it allows an average of 3-4 hours longer electricity generation per day. This enables the design of smaller battery bank capacities for hybrid RAPS systems without limiting the end users’ energy services. Hence, long-term health risks to the people, as well as environmental damage to the delicate and exceptional Himalayan flora and fauna through disposed “dead” lead-acid batteries, is reduced.

New Mass and Lifetime Measurements of $^{152}$Sm Projectile Fragments with Time-Resolved Schottky Mass Spectrometry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The FRS-ESR facilities at GSI provide unique conditions for precision measurements with stored exotic nuclei over a large range in the chart of nuclides. In the present experiment the exotic nuclei were produced via fragmentation of $^{152}$Sm projectiles in a thick beryllium target at 500-600 MeV/u, separated in-flight with the fragment separator FRS, and injected into the storage-cooler ring ESR. Mass and lifetime measurements have been performed with bare and few-electron ions. The experiment and first results will be presented in this contribution.

Near- and subbarrier elastic and quasielastic scattering of the weakly bound {sup 6}Li projectile on {sup 144}Sm  

SciTech Connect

High-precision data of backward-angle elastic and quasielastic scattering for the weakly bound {sup 6}Li projectile on {sup 144}Sm target at deep-sub-barrier, near-, and above-barrier energies were measured. From the deep-sub-barrier data, the surface diffuseness of the nuclear interacting potential was studied. Barrier distributions were extracted from the first derivatives of the elastic and quasielastic excitation functions. It is shown that sequential breakup through the first resonant state of the {sup 6}Li is an important channel to be included in coupled-channels calculations, even at deep-sub-barrier energies.

The breakup of the projectile-like nuclei in reactions induced by 30 MeV {sup 6}Li and {sup 7}Li beams on a {sup 144}Sm target have been measured through the coincident detection of the in-plane emitted light particles. The primary ion that undergoes breakup has been identified and the physically meaningful variables that characterize the reaction have been obtained on a purely experimental basis. Distributions have been obtained for both the binary emission angle and for the breakup emission angle in the reference frame of the breakup products.

Energy dependence of the parity-violating asymmetry of circularly polarized photons in $d\\vec? \\to np$ in pionless effective field theory  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We calculate the energy dependence of the asymmetry in the cross sections for circularly polarized photons on an unpolarized deuteron target in $d\\vec{\\gamma} \\to np$ in pionless effective field theory. By matching the parity-violating low-energy constants to different sets of corresponding model parameters we obtain estimates for the asymmetry. In addition we calculate two possible figures of merit for the asymmetry in order to assess the preferred photon energy at which to perform a possible future experiment at a high-intensity photon source.

Ab initio full charge-density study of the atomic volume of ?-phase Fr, Ra, Ac, Th, Pa, U, Np, and Pu  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have used a full charge-density technique based on the linear muffin-tin orbitals method in first-principles calculations of the atomic volumes of the light actinides including Fr, Ra, and Ac in their low-temperature crystallographic phases. The good agreement between the theoretical and experimental values along the series support the picture of itinerant 5f electronic states in Th to Pu. The increased deviation between theory and experiment found in Np and Pu may be an indication of correlation effects not included in the local density approximation.

Ba{sub 2}LnMoO{sub 6} double perovskites have been recently shown to display a wide range of interesting magnetic and structural properties; Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} exhibits simultaneous antiferromagnetic order and a Jahn-Teller distortion. Here we report a high temperature neutron diffraction study of Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} from 353 to 877 K. The results evidence a tetragonal to cubic phase transition at 423 K. Above this temperature the thermal displacement parameters of the oxygen atoms are modelled anisotropically as a result of a transverse vibration of the bridging oxygen. A smooth increase in the cell parameter a is observed with temperature for Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6}. - Graphical abstract: The high temperature crystal structure of Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} evidencing a transverse oxygen vibration.

Complexation study of NpO{sub 2}{sup +} and UO{sub 2}{sup 2+} ions with several organic ligands in aqueous solutions of high ionic strength  

SciTech Connect

The acid dissociation constants, pK{sub a}, and the stability constants for NpO{sub 2}{sup +} and UO{sub 2}{sup 2+} have been measured for certain organic ligands [acetate, {alpha}-hydroxyisobutyrate, lactate, ascorbate, oxalate, citrate, EDTA, 8-hydroxyquinoline, 1, 10-phenanthroline, and thenoyltrifluoroacetone] in 5 m (NaCl) ionic strength solution. The pK{sub a} values were determined by potentiometry or spectrometry. These methods, as well as solvent extraction with {sup 233}U and {sup 237}Np radiotracers, were used to measure the stability constants of the 1:1 and 1:2 complexes of dioxo cations. These constants were used to estimate the concentrations required to result in 10 % competition with hydrolysis in the 5 m NaCl solution. Such estimates are of value in assessing the solubility from radioactive waste of AnO{sub 2}{sup +} and AnO{sub 2}{sup 2+} in brine solutions in contact with nuclear waste in a salt-bed repository.

SciTech Connect

The alpha radioactive components in the Hemp-palm leaves of Bontenchiku were determined with emphasis on the measurement of low-level {sup 237}Np by alpha-ray spectrometry after chemical separation. Bontenchiku is a kind of fishing gear for long-line fishing used by the Fifth Fukuryu-Maru (Lucky Dragon). This gear was exposed to fallout from the second thermonuclear test explosion (Bravo) at Bikini Atoll in March 1954. The {sup 237}Np content in the Bontenchiku sample was determined to be 11.5 {plus_minus}0.8 mBq g{sup {minus}1} with an activity ratio of {sup 237}Np: {sup 239,240}Pu and an atom ratio of {sup 237}Np: {sup 239}Pu estimated to be (2.2 {plus_minus}0.2) x 10{sup {minus}3} and 0.42 {plus_minus}0.04, respectively. The data showed the existence of a chain reaction of {sup 238}U and its ratio to be {sup 237}Np: {sup 239}Pu, as well as the presence of {sup 237}U at the time of fallout from Bravo event in March 1954. 12 refs., 5 figs., 1 tab.

Metal-insulator transition and electrically driven memristive characteristics of SmNiO{sub 3} thin films  

SciTech Connect

The correlated oxide SmNiO{sub 3} (SNO) exhibits an insulator to metal transition (MIT) at 130 deg. C in bulk form. We report on synthesis and electron transport in SNO films deposited on LaAlO{sub 3} (LAO) and Si single crystals. X-ray diffraction studies show that compressively strained single-phase SNO grows epitaxially on LAO while on Si, mixed oxide phases are observed. MIT is observed in resistance-temperature measurements in films grown on both substrates, with charge transport in-plane for LAO/SNO films and out-of-plane for Si/SNO films. Electrically driven memristive behavior is realized in LAO/SNO films, suggesting that SNO may be relevant for neuromorphic devices.

Thermodynamic and transport properties of single crystalline RCo2Ge2 (R=Y, La–Nd, Sm–Tm)  

SciTech Connect

Single crystals of RCo2Ge2 (R=Y, La–Nd, Sm–Tm) were grown using a self-flux method and were characterized by room-temperature powder X-ray diffraction; anisotropic, temperature and field dependent magnetization; temperature and field dependent, in-plane resistivity; and specific heat measurements. In this series, the majority of the moment-bearing members order antiferromagnetically; YCo2Ge2 and LaCo2Ge2 are non-moment-bearing. Ce is trivalent in CeCo2Ge2 at high temperatures, and exhibits an enhanced electronic specific heat coefficient due to the Kondo effect at low temperatures. In addition, CeCo2Ge2 shows two low-temperature anomalies in temperature-dependent magnetization and specific heat measurements. Three members (R=Tb–Ho) have multiple phase transitions above 1.8 K. Eu appears to be divalent with total angular momentum L =0. Both EuCo2Ge2 and GdCo2Ge2 manifest essentially isotropic paramagnetic properties consistent with J =S =7/2. Clear magnetic anisotropy for rare-earth members with finite L was observed, with ErCo2Ge2 and TmCo2Ge2 manifesting planar anisotropy and the rest members manifesting axial anisotropy. The experimentally estimated crystal electric field (CEF) parameters B 20 were calculated from the anisotropic paramagnetic ? ab and ? c values and follow a trend that agrees well with theoretical predictions. The ordering temperatures, TNTN, as well as the polycrystalline averaged paramagnetic Curie–Weiss temperature, ?avg, for the heavy rare-earth members deviate from the de Gennes scaling, as the magnitude of both is the highest for Tb, which is sometimes seen for extremely axial systems. Except for SmCo2Ge2, metamagnetic transitions were observed at 1.8 K for all members that ordered antiferromagnetically.

Atmospheric chemistry of CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH{sub 2}CF{sub 3}: UV spectra and kinetic data for CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH({sm_bullet})CF{sub 3} and CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH(OO{sm_bullet})CF{sub 3} radicals, and atmospheric fate of CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH(O{sm_bullet})CF{sub 3} radicals  

SciTech Connect

Recognition of the adverse effect of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) release into the atmosphere has led to an international effort to replace CFCs with environmentally acceptable alternatives. Hydrofluoroethers (HFEs) are fluids designed to replace CFCs in applications such as the cleaning of electronic equipment, heat transfer agents in refrigeration systems, and carrier fluids for lubricant deposition. HFEs are volatile compounds and will be released into the atmosphere during its use. In the atmosphere, photochemical oxidation of HFEs will lead to the formation of fluorinated esters and fluorinated formates. The atmospheric fate of these products is unknown at the present. To improve their understanding of the atmospheric chemistry of esters the authors have studied the atmospheric chemistry of 2,2,2-trifluoroethyltrifluoroacetate CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH{sub 2}CF{sub 3} (bp = 55.0 C). This compound provides insight into the behavior of alkyl, alkyl peroxy, and alkoxy radicals formed {alpha} to the ester functionality. The atmospheric fate of CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH(O{sup {sm_bullet}})CF{sub 3} radicals was investigated in a FTIR smog chamber. Three loss processes for the CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH(O{sup {sm_bullet}})CF{sub 3} radicals were identified at 296 K and 700 Torr total pressure, reaction with O{sub 2} to form CF{sub 3}C(O)OC(O)CF{sub 3}, {alpha}-rearrangement to form CF{sub 3}C(O){sm_bullet} radicals and CF{sub 3}C(O)OH, and decomposition via a mechanism which is unclear. In 760 Torr of air at 296 K, 65% of the CF{sub 3}C(O)OCH(O{sm_bullet})CF{sub 3} radicals react with oxygen, 18% undergo {alpha}-rearrangement, while the fate of the remaining 17% is unclear.

We report a search for Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson production in association with a $W^{\\pm}$ boson. This search uses data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $\\math rm{1.9 fb^{-1}}$ collected with the CDF detector at Tevatron. We select events matching the $W$ + jets signature and require at least one jets to be identified as $b$-quark jets . To further increase discrimination between signal and background, we use kinematic information in an artificial neural network. The number of tagged events and the resulting neural network output distributions are consistent with the Standard Model expectations, and we set an upper limit on the $WH$ produ ction cross section times branching ratio $\\sigma(p\\bar{p} \\to W{^\\pm}H)\\times BR(H\\to b\\bar{b}) < 1.1$ to 1.0 pb for Higgs masses from 110 GeV/$c^{2}$ to 150 G eV/c$^2$ at 95% confidence level.

Anisotropic magnetization and resistivity of single crystalline RNi1-xBi2 ± y (R = La-Nd, Sm, Gd-Dy)  

SciTech Connect

We present a detailed study of RNi1?xBi2±y (R = La–Nd, Sm, Gd–Dy) single crystals by measurements of stoichiometry and temperature dependent magnetic susceptibility, magnetization, and electrical resistivity. This series forms with partial Ni occupancy, 0.72 ? (1?x) ? 0.84, as well as a variable Bi occupancy, 1.76 ? (2±y) ? 2.14. For R = Ce–Nd, Gd–Dy, the RNi1?xBi2±y compounds show local-moment like behavior and order antiferromagnetically at low temperatures. Determination of anisotropies as well as antiferromagnetic ordering temperatures for RNi1?xBi2±y (R = Ce–Nd, Sm, Gd–Dy) have been made. Crystalline samples from this family exhibit minority, second phase superconductivity at low temperatures, which can be associated with Ni–Bi and Bi contamination. No evidence of bulk superconductivity has been observed.

Thermochromic effect at room temperature of Sm{sub 0.5}Ca{sub 0.5}MnO{sub 3} thin films  

SciTech Connect

Sm{sub 0.5}Ca{sub 0.5}MnO{sub 3} thermochromic thin films were synthesized using dc reactive magnetron co-sputtering and subsequent annealing in air. The film structure was studied by x-ray diffraction analysis. To validate the thermochromic potentiality of Sm{sub 0.5}Ca{sub 0.5}MnO{sub 3}, electrical resistivity and infrared transmittance spectra were recorded for temperatures ranging from 77 K to 420 K. The temperature dependence of the optical band gap was estimated in the near infrared range. Upon heating, the optical transmission decreases in the infrared domain showing a thermochromic effect over a wide wavelength range at room temperature.

Writing of nonlinear optical Sm{sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystal lines at the surface of glass by samarium atom heat processing  

SciTech Connect

Some glasses such as 21.25Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}.63.75MoO{sub 3}.15B{sub 2}O{sub 3} (mol %) giving the formation of nonlinear optical Sm{sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystals through conventional crystallization in an electric furnace and through continuous-wave Nd: yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) laser (wavelength: 1064 nm) irradiation (samarium atom heat processing) have been developed. It is proposed from x-ray diffraction analyses, micro-Raman-scattering spectra, and second-harmonic generation measurements that the crystal structure of Sm{sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} formed by the crystallization is the {beta}{sup '}-phase structure with an orthorhombic (noncentrosymmetric) symmetry. The lines consisting of nonlinear optical {beta}{sup '}-Sm{sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystals are written at the surface of glasses by YAG laser irradiation (laser power: P=0.4 W, laser scanning speed: S=1-10 {mu}m/s), and, in particular, homogeneous crystal lines are formed at the laser scanning speed of 1 {mu}m/s. Refractive index changes (not crystallization) are also induced by YAG laser irradiation of P=0.4 W and a high laser scanning speed of S=25 {mu}m/s. The crystallization mechanism in the laser-irradiated region has been proposed. The present study demonstrates that the samarium atom heat processing is a technique for the writing of rare earth containing optical nonlinear/ferroelectric crystal lines in glass.

The superconductivity of iron-based superconductor SmO{sub 0.7}F{sub 0.2}FeAs was investigated. The SmO{sub 0.7}F{sub 0.2}FeAs sample was prepared by the two-step solid-state reaction method. The onset resistivity transition temperature is as high as 56.5 K. X-ray diffraction (XRD) results show that the lattice parameters a and c are 0.39261 and 0.84751 nm, respectively. Furthermore, the global J{sub c} was more than 2.3 x 10{sup 5} A/cm2 at T = 10 K and H = 9 T, which was calculated by the formula of J{sub c} = 20 {Delta} M/[a(1 - a/(3b))]. The upper critical fields, H{sub c2} {approx} 256 T (T = 0 K), was determined according to the Werthamer-Helfand-Hohenberg formula, indicating that the SmO{sub 0.7}F{sub 0.2}FeAs was a superconductor with a very promising application.

Lattice distortions in layered type arsenides LnTAs{sub 2} (Ln=La-Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb; T=Ag, Au): Crystal structures, electronic and magnetic properties  

SciTech Connect

The lanthanide coinage-metal diarsenides LnTAs{sub 2} (Ln=La, Ce-Nd, Sm; T=Ag, Au) have been reinvestigated and their structures have been refined from single crystal X-ray data. Two different distortion variants of the HfCuSi{sub 2} type are found: PrAgAs{sub 2}, NdAgAs{sub 2}, SmAgAs{sub 2}, GdAgAs{sub 2}, TbAgAs{sub 2}, NdAuAs{sub 2} and SmAuAs{sub 2} crystallize as twofold superstructures in space group Pmcn with the As atoms of their planar layers forming zigzag chains, whereas LaAgAs{sub 2}, CeAgAs{sub 2} and PrAuAs{sub 2} adopt a fourfold superstructure (space group Pmca) with cis-trans chains of As atoms. The respective atomic positions can be derived from the HfCuSi{sub 2} type by group-subgroup relations. The compounds with zigzag chains of As atoms exhibit metallic behaviour while those with cis-trans chains are semiconducting as measured on powder pellets. The majority of the compounds including 4f elements show antiferromagnetic ordering at T{sub N}<20 K. - Text3: Zigzig vs. cis-trans.

The RELi{sub x}Sn{sub 2} (RE=La–Nd, Sm, and Gd; 0?x<1) series revisited. Synthesis, crystal chemistry, and magnetic susceptibilities  

SciTech Connect

This study is concerned with the ternary compounds RELi{sub x}Sn{sub 2} (RE=La–Nd, Sm, and Gd; 0?x<1), which have been previously thought to be the stoichiometric RELiSn{sub 2} phases. These materials crystallize with the base-centered orthorhombic space group Cmcm (No. 63), and can be formally assigned with the CeNiSi{sub 2} structure type (Pearson symbol oC16). Our systematic single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies revealed substantial Li-deficiencies in all cases, with SmSn{sub 2} (space group Cmmm, ZrGa{sub 2} structure type, Pearson symbol oC12) and GdSn{sub 2} (space group Cmcm, ZrSi{sub 2} structure type, Pearson symbol oC12) being completely lithium-free. The structure refinements also uncovered positional disorder on the Sn site neighboring the vacancies. The Sn-disorder and the Li-deficiency correlate, and vary monotonically with the decreased size of the rare-earth atoms in the order RE=La–Nd. The SmSn{sub 2} and GdSn{sub 2} structures are devoid of any disorder. Temperature-dependent studies of the magnetic response of the title compounds are also presented and discussed. -- Graphical abstract: RELi{sub x}Sn{sub 2} (RE=La–Nd, 0?x<1) crystallize in a defect variants of the CeNiSi{sub 2} structure type (a).

Alkanes constitute a significant fraction of automotive fuels, vehicle emissions, and air pollution in urban areas. Atmospheric oxidation of alkanes is initiated primarily via attack by OH radicals giving alkyl radicals which then add O{sub 2} to give alkyl peroxy radicals. Subsequent reactions of the alkyl peroxy radicals determine the atmospheric degradation mechanism, and hence ozone forming potential, of organic compounds. A pulse radiolysis technique was used to measure the UV absorption spectra of c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11}{sup {sm_bullet}} and (c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})O{sub 2}{sup {sm_bullet}} radicals over the ranges 230--290 and 220--300 nm, {sigma}(c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11}{sup {sm_bullet}}){sub 250 nm} = (7.0 {+-} 0.8) {times} 10{sup {minus}18} and {sigma}((c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})O{sub 2}{sup {sm_bullet}}){sub 250 nm} = (5.7 {+-} 0.6) {times} 10{sup {minus}18} cm{sup 2} molecule{sup {minus}1}. The rate constant for the self-reaction of c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11}{sup {sm_bullet}} radicals was {kappa}{sub 3} = (3.0 {+-} 0.4) {times} 10{sup {minus}11} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1}. Rate constants for reactions of (c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})O{sub 2}{sup {sm_bullet}} radicals with NO and NO{sub 2} were {kappa}{sub 4} = (6.7 {+-} 0.9) {times} 10{sup {minus}12} and {kappa}{sub 5} = (9.5 {+-} 1.5) {times} 10{sup {minus}12} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1}, respectively. FTIR-smog chamber techniques were used to record the IR spectrum of the peroxynitrate (c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})O{sub 2}NO{sub 2}. determine that the reaction between (c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})O{sub 2}{sup {sm_bullet}} radicals and NO produces a (16 {+-} 4)% yield of the nitrate (c-C{sub 6}H{sub 11})ONO{sub 2}, and study the atmospheric fate of cyclohexoxy radicals. Decomposition via C-C bond scission and reaction with O{sub 2} are competing fates of the cyclohexoxy radical. In 700--750 Torr total pressure at 296 {+-} 2K, the rate constant ratio {kappa}{sub decomp}/{kappa}{sub O{sub 2}} = (8.1 {+-} 1.5) {times} 10{sup 18} molecule cm{sup {minus}3}. At 296 K in 1 atm of air, 61% of cyclohexoxy radicals decompose and 39% react with O{sub 2}.

Co-operativity among defect sites in AnO2+ and An4O9 (An = U, Np or Pu)  

SciTech Connect

Actinide dioxides derived from the AnO{sub 2} fluorite lattice are of high technological relevance due to their application in nuclear reactor fuels. Oxidation of AnO{sub 2} compounds emerges as a central theme in fuel fabrication, reactor operation, long-term storage forms for both spent fuels and surplus weapons materials, and environmental actinide migration. In this paper, we use density functional theory calculations to study the oxidation of uranium, neptunium and plutonium dioxides, AnO{sub 2} (An = U, Np or Pu), in O{sub 2} and O{sub 2}/H{sub 2}O environments. We pay particular attention to the formation of oxygen clusters (co-operativity) in AnO{sub 2+x} and how this phenomenon govern oxidation thermodynamics and the development of ordered An{sub 4}O{sub 9} compounds. The so-called split di-interstitial, which is composed of two nearest neighbor octahedral oxygen interstitials that are distorted in such a way that they dislocate one regular fluorite lattice oxygen ion to form a cluster of triangular geometry, is predicted to be the fundamental building block of the most stable cluster configurations. We also identify how the formation of oxygen defect clusters and the degree of oxidation in AnO{sub 2+x} are both governed by the characer of the An-5f to excess O-2p charger transfer, i.e. the charge transfer to the O-2p orbitals of the interstitial-like (+x) ions, and the ability of the excess O-2p orbitals to hybridize with regular fluorite lattice ions.

S. Frisch National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Environmental Technology Laboratory Boulder, Colorado Introduction We examine an empirical cloud fraction parameterization developed by Xu and Randall (XR 1996). The XR parameterization relates the large-scale relative humidity RH and the large-scale cloud water mixing ratios 1 q to the large-scale cloud fraction σ . By large scale, we refer to space and time scales resolved by a global climate model. We approach the evaluation from two perspectives, the first of which incorporates observations from the Global Atmospheric Research Program's Atlantic

Safety Criticality Standards Using the French CRISTAL Code Package: Application to the AREVA NP UO{sub 2} Fuel Fabrication Plant  

SciTech Connect

Criticality safety evaluations implement requirements to proof of sufficient sub critical margins outside of the reactor environment for example in fuel fabrication plants. Basic criticality data (i.e., criticality standards) are used in the determination of sub critical margins for all processes involving plutonium or enriched uranium. There are several criticality international standards, e.g., ARH-600, which is one the US nuclear industry relies on. The French Nuclear Safety Authority (DGSNR and its advising body IRSN) has requested AREVA NP to review the criticality standards used for the evaluation of its Low Enriched Uranium fuel fabrication plants with CRISTAL V0, the recently updated French criticality evaluation package. Criticality safety is a concern for every phase of the fabrication process including UF{sub 6} cylinder storage, UF{sub 6}-UO{sub 2} conversion, powder storage, pelletizing, rod loading, assembly fabrication, and assembly transportation. Until 2003, the accepted criticality standards were based on the French CEA work performed in the late seventies with the APOLLO1 cell/assembly computer code. APOLLO1 is a spectral code, used for evaluating the basic characteristics of fuel assemblies for reactor physics applications, which has been enhanced to perform criticality safety calculations. Throughout the years, CRISTAL, starting with APOLLO1 and MORET 3 (a 3D Monte Carlo code), has been improved to account for the growth of its qualification database and for increasing user requirements. Today, CRISTAL V0 is an up-to-date computational tool incorporating a modern basic microscopic cross section set based on JEF2.2 and the comprehensive APOLLO2 and MORET 4 codes. APOLLO2 is well suited for criticality standards calculations as it includes a sophisticated self shielding approach, a P{sub ij} flux determination, and a 1D transport (S{sub n}) process. CRISTAL V0 is the result of more than five years of development work focusing on theoretical approaches and the implementation of user-friendly graphical interfaces. Due to its comprehensive physical simulation and thanks to its broad qualification database with more than a thousand benchmark/calculation comparisons, CRISTAL V0 provides outstanding and reliable accuracy for criticality evaluations for configurations covering the entire fuel cycle (i.e. from enrichment, pellet/assembly fabrication, transportation, to fuel reprocessing). After a brief description of the calculation scheme and the physics algorithms used in this code package, results for the various fissile media encountered in a UO{sub 2} fuel fabrication plant will be detailed and discussed.

Understanding the effect of Sm2O3 and CeO2 promoters on the structure and activity of Rh/Al2O3 catalysts in methane steam reforming  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The role of Sm2O3 and CeO2 promoters on the structural properties and catalytic behavior of Rh/xSm2O3–yCeO2–Al2O3 catalysts during methane steam reforming (MSR) was investigated. Promoted catalysts showed higher reaction rates per surface Rh atom and improved stability compared to Rh/Al2O3. In situ X-ray absorption revealed that the structure of Rh particles in Rh/Al2O3 changes drastically during MSR, while it was stable in the presence of Sm2O3–CeO2. Sintering of the active metal phase was the main cause of deactivation. STEM images showed stronger Rh agglomeration of the unpromoted catalyst with time on stream.

Determination of the binding energies of the np Rydberg states of H{sub 2}, HD, and D{sub 2} from high-resolution spectroscopic data by multichannel quantum-defect theory  

SciTech Connect

Multichannel quantum-defect theory (MQDT) is used to calculate the electron binding energies of np Rydberg states of H{sub 2}, HD, and D{sub 2} around n = 60 at an accuracy of better than 0.5?MHz. The theory includes the effects of rovibronic channel interactions and the hyperfine structure, and has been extended to the calculation of the asymmetric hyperfine structure of Rydberg states of a heteronuclear diatomic molecule (HD). Starting values for the eigenquantum-defect parameters of MQDT were extracted from ab initio potential-energy functions for the low-lying p Rydberg states of molecular hydrogen and subsequently refined in a global weighted fit to available experimental data on the singlet and triplet Rydberg states of H{sub 2} and D{sub 2}. The electron binding energies of high-np Rydberg states derived in this work represent important quantities for future determinations of the adiabatic ionization energies of H{sub 2}, HD, and D{sub 2} at sub-MHz accuracy.

Sensitivity of fusion and quasi-elastic barrier distributions of {sub 16}O+{sub 144}Sm reaction on the coupling radius parameter  

SciTech Connect

We study the heavy-ion collision at sub-barrier energies of {sub 16}O+{sub 144}Sm system using full order coupled-channels formalism. We especially investigate the sensitivity of fusion and quasi-elastic barrier distributions for this system on the coupling radius parameter. We found that the coupled-channels calculations of the fusion and the quasi-elastic barrier distributions are sensitive to the coupling radius for this reaction in contrast to the fusion and quasi-elastic cross section. Our study indicates that the larger coupling radius, i.e., r{sub coup}=1.20, is required by the experimental quasi-elastic barrier distribution. However, the experimental fusion barrier distribution compulsory the small value, i.e., r{sub coup}=1.06.

Synthesis of NiO ? Ce 0.8 Sm 0.2 O 1.9 Composite Nanopowders for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

NiO ? Ce 0.8 Sm 0.2 O 1.9 (SDC) composite nanopowders which are being investigated as a promising anode material for intermediate?low temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) were successfully synthesized by hydroxide co?precipitation method. The effects of calcination temperature and time on crystal phase crystallite size average particle size and particle size distribution of the synthesized powders were investigated by means of X?ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). XRD analysis showed that the synthesized powders consisted of two phases NiO and SDC without any other noticeable phase. The NiO and SDC phases were formed after calcining at 500?°C. The calcination temperature is the most important factor which affects the crystal phase particle size and particle size distribution. With an increase in the calcination temperature the average particle size of the synthesized powders increased and the particle size distribution became wider. The average particle size of the powders calcined at 600–900?°C was in the range of 9.8–39 nm according to the TEM analysis.

Origin of periodic domain structure in Er{sup 3+}-doped beta'-(Sm,Gd){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystal lines patterned by laser irradiations in glasses  

SciTech Connect

Er{sup 3+}-doped beta'-(Sm,Gd){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystal lines are patterned on the surface of Er{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}-MoO{sub 3}-B{sub 2}O{sub 3} glasses by continuous-wave Yb:YVO{sub 4} laser irradiations (wavelength: 1080 nm, power: 1.3 W, scanning speeds: 5 {mu}m/s), and the origin of the periodicity of self-organized domain structures with high and low refractive index regions in crystal lines is examined from polarized optical microscope (POM) observations, micro-Raman scattering spectrum, and photoluminescence spectrum measurements. It is found that the periodicity of domain structures changes largely depending on Er{sub 2}O{sub 3} content, i.e., the length of high (bright color in POM observations) and low (dark color) refractive index regions increases with increasing Er{sub 2}O{sub 3} content and homogeneous crystal lines with no periodic domain structures are patterned in Er{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}-MoO{sub 3}-B{sub 2}O{sub 3} glass with no Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3}. Considering that the degree of ferroelasticities in beta'-(Sm,Gd){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystals decreases due to the incorporation of Er{sup 3+} ions, it is demonstrated that the origin of periodic domain structures in laser-patterned lines is due to spontaneous strains in ferroelastic beta'-(Sm,Gd){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystals. - Graphical abstract: This figure shows the polarized optical photographs (top view) for the lines patterned by laser irradiations with the power of P=1.3 W and the scanning speed of S=5 {mu}m/s in xEr{sub 2}O{sub 3}-(18.25-x)Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3}-3Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}-63.75MoO{sub 3}-15B{sub 2}O{sub 3} (mol%) glasses. This figure indicates that the periodicity of domain structures in beta'-(Sm,Gd){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 3} crystal lines, i.e., the lengths of bright (high refractive index) and dark (low refractive index) color regions, changes depending on the amount of Er{sub 2}O{sub 3} addition.

Chemical surety material decontamination and decommissioning of Los Alamos National Laboratory Chemical Surety Material Laboratory area TA-3, building SM-29, room 4009  

SciTech Connect

From 1982 through 1987, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) performed surety laboratory operations for the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command (MRDC). Room 4009 in building SM-29, TA-3, was used as the laboratory for work with the following chemical surety material (CSM) agents: sarin (GB), soman (GD), lewisite (L), and distilled mustard (HD) radio-labelled with H{sup 3} or C{sup 14}. The work was confined to three CSM-certified fume hoods, located in room 4009 (see diagram in Appendix C). The laboratory ceased all active operations during the late 1986 and early 1987 period. From 1987 until 1993 the laboratory was secured and the ventilation system continued to operate. During late 1992, the decision was made to utilize this laboratory space for other operations, thus a decision was made to dismantle and reconfigure this room. LANL sub-contracted Battelle Memorial Institute (BMI) to draw upon the CSM experience of the technical staff from the Hazardous Materials Research Facility (HMRF) to assist in developing a decontamination and decommissioning plan. BMI was subcontracted to devise a CSM safety training course, and a sampling and air monitoring plan for CSM material to ensure personnel safety during all disassembly operations. LANL subcontracted Johnson Controls personnel to perform all disassembly operations. Beginning in early 1993 BMI personnel from the HMRF visited the laboratory to develop both the safety plan and the sample and air monitoring plan. Execution of that plan began in September 1993 and was completed in January 1994.

Combined effect of chemical pressure and valence electron concentration through the electron-deficient Li substitution on the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system  

SciTech Connect

Four members of the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system have been prepared by high-temperature reaction method and characterized by X-ray diffractions. All compounds crystallize in the orthorhombic Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure (space group Pnma, Pearson code oP16) with bonding interactions for interslab Ge{sub 2} dimers. The Li substitution for rare-earth elements in the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} system leads to a combined effect of the increased chemical pressure and the decreased valance electron concentration (VEC), which eventually results in the structure transformation from the Sm{sub 5}Ge{sub 4}-type with all broken interslab Ge–Ge bond for the parental RE{sub 5}Ge{sub 4} to the Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure for the ternary RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system. Site-preference between rare-earth metals and Li is proven to generate energetically the most favorable atomic arrangements according to coloring-problem, and the rationale is provided using both the size-factor and the electronic-factor related, respectively, to site-volume and electronegativity as well as QVAL values. Tight-binding, linear-muffin-tin-orbital (TB-LMTO) calculations are performed to investigate electronic densities of states (DOS) and crystal orbital Hamilton population (COHP) curves. The influence of reduced VEC for chemical bonding including the formation of interslab Ge{sub 2} dimers is also discussed. The magnetic property measurements prove that the non-magnetic Li substitution leads to the ferromagnetic (FM)-like ground state for Ce{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} and the co-existence of antiferromagntic (AFM) and FM ground states for Sm{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4}. - Graphical abstract: Reported is a combined effect of the chemical pressure and the reduced VEC caused by the smaller monovalent non-magnetic Li substitution for the larger trivalent magnetic rare-earth metals in the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system. This results in the structure transformation from the Sm{sub 5}Ge{sub 4}-type to the Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure and the changes in magnetic properties. Display Omitted - Highlights: • Four Li-containing intermetallic compounds RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr and Sm) were synthesized. • The combined effect of the chemical pressure and the reduced VEC caused by Li substitution for a rare-earth metal results in the structure transformation. • Electronic structures and magnetic properties of title compounds were thoroughly investigated.

Heavy element radionuclides (Pu, Np, U) and {sup 137}Cs in soils collected from the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory and other sites in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming  

SciTech Connect

The isotopic composition of Pu in soils on and near the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) has been determined in order to apportion the sources of the Pu into those derived from stratospheric fallout, regional fallout from the Nevada Test Site (NTS), and facilities on the INEEL site. Soils collected offsite in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming were collected to further characterize NTS fallout in the region. In addition, measurements of {sup 237}Np and {sup 137}Cs were used to further identify the source of the Pu from airborne emissions at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP) or fugitive releases from the Subsurface Disposal Area (SDA) in the Radioactive Waste Management Complex (RWMC). There is convincing evidence from this study that {sup 241}Am, in excess of that expected from weapons-grade Pu, constituted a part of the buried waste at the SDA that has subsequently been released to the environment. Measurements of {sup 236}U in waters from the Snake River Plain aquifer and a soil core near the ICPP suggest that this radionuclide may be a unique interrogator of airborne releases from the ICPP. Neptunium-237 and {sup 238}Pu activities in INEEL soils suggest that airborne releases of Pu from the ICPP, over its operating history, may have recently been overestimated.

Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence of 237 Np  

SciTech Connect

Identification and characterization of fissile material is of international concern because of the possibility of proliferation. For safeguards applications, techniques providing isotopic information are necessary [1]. However, few techniques can distinguish between fissile isotopes. Nuclear resonance fluorescence is one technique that can be used in applications to identify and quantify isotopic content. NRF has also been proposed in several detector systems as a viable way to identify fissile material in cargo containers [2, 3]. It is necessary to measure the characteristic resonances of each isotope that is to be distinguished in identification and assay applications.

Anisotropic magnetization and transport properties of RAgSb{sub 2} (R=Y, La-Nd, Sm, Gd-Tm)  

SciTech Connect

This study of the RAgSb{sub 2} series of compounds arose as part of an investigation of rare earth intermetallic compounds containing antimony with the rare earth in a position with tetragonal point symmetry. Materials with the rare earth in a position with tetragonal point symmetry frequently manifest strong anisotropies and rich complexity in the magnetic properties, and yet are simple enough to analyze. Antimony containing intermetallic compounds commonly possess low carrier densities and have only recently been the subject of study. Large single grain crystals were grown of the RAgSb{sub 2} (R=Y, La-Nd, Sm, Gd-Tm) series of compounds out of a high temperature solution. This method of crystal growth, commonly known as flux growth is a versatile method which takes advantage of the decreasing solubility of the target compound with decreasing temperature. Overall, the results of the crystal growth were impressive with the synthesis of single crystals of LaAgSb{sub 2} approaching one gram. However, the sample yield diminishes as the rare earth elements become smaller and heavier. Consequently, no crystals could be grown with R=Yb or Lu. Furthermore, EuAgSb{sub 2} could not be synthesized, likely due to the divalency of the Eu ion. For most of the RAgSb{sub 2} compounds, strong magnetic anisotropies are created by the crystal electric field splitting of the Hund's rule ground state. This splitting confines the local moments to lie in the basal plane (easy plane) for the majority of the members of the series. Exceptions to this include ErAgSb{sub 2} and TmAgSb{sub 2}, which have moments along the c-axis (easy axis) and CeAgSb{sub 2}, which at intermediate temperatures has an easy plane, but exchange coupling at low temperatures is anisotropic with an easy axis. Additional anisotropy is also observed within the basal plane of DyAgSb{sub 2}, where the moments are restricted to align along one of the {l_angle}110{r_angle} axes. Most of the RAgSb{sub 2} compounds containing magnetic rare earths, antiferromagnetically ordered at low temperatures. The ordering temperatures of these compounds are approximately proportional to the de Gennes factor, which suggests that the RKKY interaction is the dominant exchange interaction between local moments. Although metamagnetic transitions were observed in many members of the series, the series of sharp step-like transitions in DyAgSb{sub 2} are impressive. In this compound, up to 11 different magnetic states are stable depending on the magnitude and direction of the applied field. The saturated magnetization of these states and the critical fields needed to induce a phase transition vary with the direction of the applied field. Through detailed study of the angular dependence of the magnetization and critical fields, the net distribution of magnetic moments was determined for most, of the metamagnetic states. In DyAgSb{sub 2}, the crystal electric field (CEF) splitting of the Hund's rule ground state creates a strong anisotropy where the local Dy{sup 3+} magnetic moments are constrained to one of the equivalent {l_angle}110{r_angle} directions within the basal plane. The four position clock model was introduced to account for this rich metamagnetic system. Within this model, the magnetic moments are constrained to one of four equivalent orientations within the basal plane and interactions are calculated for up third nearest neighbors. The theoretical phase diagram, generated from the coupling constants is in excellent agreement with the experimental phase diagram. Further investigation of this compound using magnetic X-ray or neutron diffraction would be extremely useful to verify the net distributions of moments and determine the wave vectors of each of the ordered states.

Extended Optical Model Analyses of Elastic Scattering and Fusion Cross Section Data for the 9Be+28Si, 144Sm, and 208Pb Systems at Near-Coulomb-Barrier Energies using Double Folding Potential  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Based on the extended optical model with the double folding potential, in which the polarization potential is decomposed into direct reaction (DR) and fusion parts, simultaneous $\\chi^{2}$ analyses are performed of elastic scattering and fusion cross section data for the $^{9}$Be+$^{28}$Si, $^{144}$Sm, and $^{208}$Pb systems at near-Coulomb-barrier energies. We find that the real part of the resultant DR part of the polarization potential is systematically repulsive for all the targets considered, which is consistent with the results deduced from the Continuum Discretized Coupled Channel (CDCC) calculations taking into account the polarization effects due to breakup. Further, it is found that both DR and fusion parts of the extracted polarization potentials satisfy the dispersion relation.

DC current induced metal-insulator transition in epitaxial Sm{sub 0.6}Nd{sub 0.4}NiO{sub 3}/LaAlO{sub 3} thin film  

SciTech Connect

The metal-insulator transition (MIT) in strong correlated electron materials can be induced by external perturbation in forms of thermal, electrical, optical, or magnetic fields. We report on the DC current induced MIT in epitaxial Sm{sub 0.6}Nd{sub 0.4}NiO{sub 3} (SNNO) thin film deposited by pulsed laser deposition on (001)-LaAlO{sub 3} substrate. It was found that the MIT in SNNO film not only can be triggered by thermal, but also can be induced by DC current. The T{sub MI} of SNNO film decreases from 282 K to 200 K with the DC current density increasing from 0.003 × 10{sup 9} A•m{sup ?2} to 4.9 × 10{sup 9} A•m{sup ?2}. Based on the resistivity curves measured at different temperatures, the MIT phase diagram has been successfully constructed.

Structural and Magnetothermal Properties of Compounds: Yb5SixGe4-x,Sm5SixGe4-x, EuO, and Eu3O4  

SciTech Connect

The family of R{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} alloys demonstrates a variety of unique physical phenomena related to magneto-structural transitions associated with reversible breaking and reforming of specific bonds that can be controlled by numerous external parameters such as chemical composition, magnetic field, temperature, and pressure. Therefore, R{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} systems have been extensively studied to uncover the mechanism of the extraordinary magneto-responsive properties including the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and colossal magnetostriction, as well as giant magnetocaloric effect (GMCE). Until now, more than a half of possible R{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} pseudobinary systems have been completely or partially investigated with respect to their crystallography and phase relationships (R = La, Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb, Dy, Er, Lu, Y). Still, there are other R{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} systems (R = Ce, Sm, Ho, Tm, and Yb) that are not studied yet. Here, we report on phase relationships and structural, magnetic, and thermodynamic properties in the Yb{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} and Sm{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} pseudobinary systems, which may exhibit mixed valence states. The crystallography, phase relationships, and physical properties of Yb{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} alloys with 0 {le} x {le} 4 have been examined by using single crystal and powder x-ray diffraction at room temperature, and dc magnetization and heat capacity measurements between 1.8 K and 400 K in magnetic fields ranging from 0 to 7 T. Unlike the majority of R{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} systems studied to date, where R is the rare earth metal, all Yb-based germanide-silicides with the 5:4 stoichiometry crystallize in the same Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure. The magnetic properties of Yb{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} materials are nearly composition-independent, reflecting the persistence of the same crystal structure over the whole range of x from 0 to 4. Both the crystallographic and magnetic property data indicate that Yb{sub 5}Si{sub x}Ge{sub 4-x} alloys are mixed valence systems, in which the majority (60%) of Yb atoms is divalent, while the minority (40%) is trivalent. This finding is supported by recent Moessbauer spectroscopy data.

Statistical model calculation has been carried out for the excitation functions of the {sup 93}Nb(p,n){sup 93}Mo{sup m}, {sup 93}Nb(p,{alpha}n){sup 89}Zr, and {sup 93}Nb(p,np+pn){sup 92}Nb{sup m} reactions up to a 20-MeV proton energy range using global reaction parameters. The results are compared and discussed with reported measurements. The calculation for the excitation function of the {sup 93}Nb(p,n){sup 93}Mo{sup m} reaction can only match the measured magnitudes of cross sections if we postulate the existence of two energy levels with spin-parity values of 19/2{sup +} and 17/2{sup -} lying immediately above the 2.425 MeV (21/2{sup +}) isomeric state. The existence of the hypothetical levels has been discussed in the light of reported shell-model calculations.

Iron and vanadium are trivalent stabilized in these solid solutions. ? The Mössbauer quadrupolar splitting is correlated with the tolerance factor. ? Below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation. -- Abstract: Perovskites LnV{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} (Ln = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho and Er) were synthesized by rapid solidification from arc-melted samples and characterized by the study of their crystal structure and hyperfine properties. These metastable solid solutions crystallized in the Pbnm symmetry, with the iron and vanadium cations randomly distributed in the transition metal octahedral sites. Depending on the lanthanide present at the A site of the perovskite, iron is present with two valences (i.e., Fe{sup 3+} and Fe{sup 2+}). The volume of the unit cell for these perovskites increases linearly with the lanthanide ionic radius, as the perovskite approaches its ideal structure. At room temperature, the quadrupolar splitting of the trivalent paramagnetic Mössbauer component works as an indirect measurement for the Goldshmidt tolerance factor. Close to or below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation, probably due to orbital ordering of the V{sup 3+} cations, originating two different magnetic iron sites.

Depending on the structure of RE{sub 2}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} phase, the cubic pyrochlore or monoclinic RE{sub 2}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} phases are observed in the studied system. The observed phase fields in these two systems indicate ionic radius of the rare-earth ion has a dominating role in the phase relations. Further details of the phases and their homogeneity are explained in the text of the manuscript.

NP2010: An Assessment and Outlook for Nuclear Physics  

SciTech Connect

This grant provided partial support for the National Research Council’s (NRC) decadal survey of nuclear physics. This is part of NRC’s larger effort to assess and discuss the outlook for different fields in physics and astronomy, Physics 2010, which takes place approximately every ten years. A report has been prepared as a result of the study that is intended to inform those who are interested about the current status of research in this area and to help guide future developments of the field. A pdf version of the report is available for download, for free, at http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=13438. Among the principal conclusions reached in the report are that the nuclear physics program in the United States has been especially well managed, principally through a recurring long-range planning process conducted by the community, and that current opportunities developed pursuant to that planning process should be exploited. In the section entitled “Building the Foundation for the Future,” the report notes that attention needs to be paid to certain elements that are essential to the continued vitality of the field. These include ensuring that education and research at universities remain a focus for funding and that a plan be developed to ensure that forefront-computing resources, including exascale capabilities when developed, be made available to nuclear science researchers. The report also notes that nimbleness is essential for the United States to remain competitive in a rapidly expanding international nuclear physics arena and that streamlined and flexible procedures should be developed for initiating and managing smaller-scale nuclear science projects.

Np Behavior in Synthesized Uranyl Phases: Results of Initial Tests  

SciTech Connect

Initial tests were completed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for developing a potential mechanism to retard the mobility of neptunium at the Yucca Mountain repository. Neptunium is of concern because of its mobility in the environment and long half life, contributing a large percentage of the potential dose over extended times at the perimeter of the site. The mobility of neptunium could be retarded by associating with uranium mineral phases. The following four uranium mineral phases were examined and are potential secondary phases expected to form as a result of interactions of spent nuclear fuel with the local environment: meta-schoepite, studtite, uranophane, and sodium boltwoodite. The fate of the neptunium was examined in these synthetic experiments.

Research Research Superconductivity and Magnetism Research Vision The continuing discovery of novel superconductors outruns our ability to explain and control their behavior. Strong electron correlations in the cuprates give rise to unconventional pairing mechanisms and gap symmetries. The large anisotropy and high thermal energies generate novel pancake vortices, Abrikosov and Josephson vortices and a new liquid vortex phase. Furthermore, a succession of novel insulating, magnetic, non-Fermi liquid, and pseudo-gapped phases arises in the normal state. In addition, MgB2 and the iron pnictides add multiband behavior. Our vision is to understand the electronic and vortex properties of novel superconductors and to control their macroscopic behavior by adjusting their nanoscale

Two-Atom Rydberg Blockade using Direct 6S to nP Excitation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore a single-photon approach to Rydberg state excitation and Rydberg blockade. Using detailed theoretical models, we show the feasibility of direct excitation, predict the effect of background electric fields, and calculate the required interatomic distance to observe Rydberg blockade. We then measure and control the electric field environment to enable coherent control of Rydberg states. With this coherent control, we demonstrate Rydberg blockade of two atoms separated by 6.6(3) {\\mu}m. When compared with the more common two-photon excitation method, this single-photon approach is advantageous because it eliminates channels for decoherence through photon scattering and AC Stark shifts from the intermediate state while moderately increasing Doppler sensitivity.

Results on Searches for New Physics at B Factories  

SciTech Connect

We summarize recent results on B{sup +} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}} setting constraints on the charged Higgs mass, discuss the CP puzzle in B {yields} K{pi} decays and present searches for a light neutral Higgs in radiative {Upsilon}(2S) and {Upsilon}(3S) decays. Rare decays are processes with branching fractions of {Omicron}(10{sup -4}) or smaller. Typically, they arise if amplitudes of higher-order processes (penguin loops, box diagrams) become dominant because tree amplitudes are suppressed in the Standard Model (SM). Additional suppression comes from small CKM couplings and helicity conservation. Contributions of New Physics (NP) processes may become significant modifying the prediction with respect to those in the SM. Thus, rare decays provide an interesting hunting ground for NP searches that are complementary to direct searches at the LHC.

Two- and Three-Body Charmless B Decays at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

We report recent measurements of rare charmless B decays performed by BaBar. The results are based on the final BaBar dataset of 424 fb{sup -1} collected at the PEP-II B-factory based at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The study of rare B decays is a key ingredient to meet two of the main goals of the B-factories: assessing the validity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) picture of CP-violation by precisely measuring the elements of the Unitarity Triangle (UT), and searching for hints of New Physics (NP), or otherwise constraining NP scenarios, in processes which are suppressed in the Standard Model (SM). In loop processes, in particular, NP at some higher energy scale may manifest itself in the low energy effective theory as new couplings, such as those introduced by new very massive virtual particles in the loop. In NP searches hadronic uncertainties can play a major role, expecially for branching fraction measurements. Many theoretical uncertainties cancel in ratios of amplitudes, and most NP probes are therefore of this kind. In the following sections we report recent measurements, performed by the BaBar Collaboration, that are relevant to NP searches in charmless hadronic B decays.

Generation, storage, collection and transportation of municipal solid waste - A case study in the city of Kathmandu, capital of Nepal  

SciTech Connect

Solid waste management (SWM) services have consistently failed to keep up with the vast amount of solid waste produced in urban areas. There is not currently an efficient system in place for the management, storage, collection, and transportation of solid waste. Kathmandu City, an important urban center of South Asia, is no exception. In Kathmandu Metropolitan City, solid waste generation is predicted to be 1091 m{sup 3}/d (245 tons/day) and 1155 m{sup 3}/d (260 tons/day) for the years 2005 and 2006, respectively. The majority (89%) of households in Kathmandu Metropolitan City are willing to segregate the organic and non-organic portions of their waste. Overall collection efficiency was 94% in 2003. An increase in waste collection occurred due to private sector involvement, the shutdown of the second transfer station near the airport due to local protest, a lack of funding to maintain trucks/equipment, a huge increase in plastic waste, and the willingness of people to separate their waste into separate bins. Despite a substantial increase in total expenditure, no additional investments were made to the existing development plan to introduce a modern disposal system due to insufficient funding. Due to the lack of a proper lining, raw solid waste from the existing dumping site comes in contact with river water directly, causing severe river contamination and deteriorating the quality of the water.

Leptonic monotops at the LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We study the possibility of detecting new physics (NP) phenomena at the LHC through a new search strategy looking at the monotop (top plus missing energy) signature which is common to a variety of NP models. We focus on the leptonic top decay mode and study the discovery or exclusion reach of the 2012 LHC data for three example models. Contrary to the hadronic mode, in this case the problematic QCD multijet background can be safely neglected. We find that the key kinematic variable to suppress most of the remaining SM backgrounds is the transverse mass of the charged lepton and missing energy. In fact, one could expect that the single-top production measurements already address the monotop signature in this mode. This is, however, not the case, because in the SM single-top production, the transverse mass has an end point determined by the W mass, while the NP signals typically have an additional source of missing energy. We compare, under the same conditions, our monotop search strategy with existing single-top measurements and find a considerable improvement in the monotop signature reach.

Measurement of the asymmetries in 3He(e,e'p)d and 3He(e,e'p)np  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The electron-target-asymmetries A_parallel and A_perpendicular with target spin parallel and perpendicular to the momentum transfer q were measured for both the two-- and three-body breakup of 3He in the 3He(e,e'p)-reaction. Polarized electrons were scattered off polarized 3He in the quasielastic regime in parallel kinematics with the scattered electron and the knocked-out proton detected using the Three-Spectrometer-Facility at MAMI. The results are compared to Faddeev calculations which take into account Final State Interactions as well as Meson Exchange Currents. The experiment confirms the prediction of a large effect of Final State Interactions in the asymmetry of the three-body breakup and of an almost negligible one for the two-body breakup.

The HYSULF{sup SM} process: A valuable hydrogen resource from hydrogen sulfide  

SciTech Connect

The increasing demand for hydrogen to reduce the sulfur content in standard refinery fuels is a very familiar problem to everyone in the industry. This problem could be partially offset by the continuous recycling of the hydrogen portion of hydrogen sulfide. In this regard, Marathon has been developing the HYSULF process. This process uses Redox chemistry under mild operating conditions to convert hydrogen sulfide into hydrogen and sulfur. The process employs two basic steps, i.e., a sulfur production and recovery step and a hydrogen production step. All chemicals and the catalyst used in the HYSULF process are either commercially available or are slight modifications of available materials. Also, the chemistry used in the HYSULF process is similar to that used in commercial desulfurization and gas sweetening processes.

Higgs boson pair production in the D=6 extension of the SM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We derive the constraints that can be imposed on the dimension-6 effective theory extension of the Standard Model, using gluon-fusion-initiated Higgs boson pair production at the LHC. We use a realistic analysis focussing on the $hh \\rightarrow (b\\bar{b}) ( \\tau^+ \\tau^- )$ final state, including initial-state radiations and non-perturbative effects. We include conservative estimates of the theoretical uncertainties on the signal rate predictions as well as the statistical uncertainties. We first consider a theory containing only modifications of the trilinear coupling through an $c_6 \\lambda\\, H^6/ \\Lambda^2$ Lagrangian term, and then examine the full parameter space of the effective theory, incorporating current bounds obtained through single Higgs boson measurements. We also consider a simplified scenario, where we only allow a sub-set of parameters to vary and set the others to zero. We find that the currently unbounded parameter, $c_6$, could be constrained to lie within $-0.9 \\lesssim c_6 \\lesssim 1.7$ ...

Leptonic B Decays at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

The authors will present the most recent results on leptonic B decays B{sup {+-}(0)} {yields} K*{sup {+-}(0)} {nu}{bar {nu}} and B{sup {+-}} {yields} {mu}{sup {+-}}{nu}, based on the data collected by the BaBar detector at PEP-II, an asymmetric e{sup +}e{sup -} collider at the center of mass energy of the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance. Rare B decays have always been a standard probe for New Physics (NP) searches. The very low Standard Model (SM) rate of these decays often make them unaccessible with the present experimental datasets, unless NP effects enhance the rate up to the current experimental sensitivity. Moreover, as NP effects can modify the decay kinematic, particular attention must be payed in order to perform a model independent analysis. A B-Factory provides an unique environment where to investigate these processes. The high number of B{bar B} pairs produced by a B-Factory often allows to approach the needed experimental sensitivity. Moreover, the clean environment and the closed kinematic of the initial state enable to obtaining a very pure sample where to look for these decays.

Concordant plutonium-241-americium-241 dating of environmental samples: results from forest fire ash  

SciTech Connect

We have measured the Pu, {sup 237}Np, {sup 241}Am, and {sup 151}Sm isotopic systematics for a set of forest fire ash samples from various locations in the western U.S. including Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and New Mexico. The goal of this study is to develop a concordant {sup 241}Pu (t{sub 1/2} = 14.4 y)-{sup 241}Am dating method for environmental collections. Environmental samples often contain mixtures of components including global fallout. There are a number of approaches for subtracting the global fallout component for such samples. One approach is to use {sup 242}/{sup 239}Pu as a normalizing isotope ratio in a three-isotope plot, where this ratio for the nonglobal fallout component can be estimated or assumed to be small. This study investigates a new, complementary method of normalization using the long-lived fission product, {sup 151}Sm (t{sub 1/2} = 90 y). We find that forest fire ash concentrates actinides and fission products with {approx}1E10 atoms {sup 239}Pu/g and {approx}1E8 atoms {sup 151}Sm/g, allowing us to measure these nuclides by mass spectrometric (MIC-TIMS) and radiometric (liquid scintillation counting) methods. The forest fire ash samples are characterized by a western U.S. regional isotopic signature representing varying mixtures of global fallout with a local component from atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). Our results also show that {sup 151}Sm is well correlated with the Pu nuclides in the forest fire ash, suggesting that these nuclides have similar geochemical behavior in the environment. Results of this correlation indicate that the {sup 151}Sm/{sup 239}Pu atom ratio for global fallout is {approx}0.164, in agreement with an independent estimate of 0.165 based on {sup 137}Cs fission yields for atmospheric weapons tests at the NTS. {sup 241}Pu-{sup 241}Am dating of the non-global fallout component in the forest fire ash samples yield ages in the late 1950's-early 1960's, consistent with a peak in NTS weapons testing at that time. The age results for this component are in agreement using both {sup 242}Pu and {sup 151}Sm normalizations, although the errors for the {sup 151}Sm correction are currently larger due to the greater uncertainty of their measurements. Additional efforts to develop a concordant {sup 241}Pu-{sup 241}Am dating method for environmental collections are underway with emphasis on soil cores.

Low dose rectal inoculation of rhesus macaques by SIV smE660 or SIVmac251 recapitulates  

SciTech Connect

We recently developed a novel strategy to identify transmitted HIV-1 genomes in acutely infected humans using single-genome amplification and a model of random virus evolution. Here, we used this approach to determine the molecular features of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) transmission in 18 experimentally infected Indian rhesus macaques. Animals were inoculated intrarectally (i.r.) or intravenously (i.v.) with stocks of SIVmac251 or SIVsmE660 that exhibited sequence diversity typical of early-chronic HIV-1 infection. 987 full-length SIV env sequences (median of 48 per animal) were determined from plasma virion RNA 1--5 wk after infection. i.r. inoculation was followed by productive infection by one or a few viruses (median 1; range 1--5) that diversified randomly with near starlike phylogeny and a Poisson distribution of mutations. Consensus viral sequences from ramp-up and peak viremia were identical to viruses found in the inocula or differed from them by only one or a few nucleotides, providing direct evidence that early plasma viral sequences coalesce to transmitted/founder viruses. i.v. infection was >2,000-fold more efficient than i.r. infection, and viruses transmitted by either route represented the full genetic spectra of the inocula. These findings identify key similarities in mucosal transmission and early diversification between SIV and HIV-1, and thus validate the SIV-macaque mucosal infection model for HIV-1 vaccine and microbicide research.

Pre-annealing effects of n+/p and p+/n junction formed by plasma doping (PLAD) and laser annealing  

SciTech Connect

In this paper, we demonstrated ultra-shallow junction formed by plasma doping (PLAD) and laser annealing. PLAD may be considered as an alternative doping method for the sub 45 technology node due to the possibility of low energy doping and high throughput. However, PLAD has various problems due to the incorporated hydrogen or fluorine. Incorporated hydrogen generally increases damage in the Si substrate and junction depth. Incorporated fluorine also retards dopant activation and increases deactivation behavior after post-annealing. In order to improve the effect of incorporated ions, we applied pre-annealing prior to laser annealing in PLAD samples. By employing low temperature pre-annealing, we can improve electrical characteristics such as low sheet resistance and high activation rates, and also reduce the junction depth after laser annealing.
