Projected integrated farm in Nepal  

SciTech Connect

A proposed integrated crop-livestock agro-processing complex to be based at Janakpur, Nepal is described. This project was proposed by the Agricultural Development Bank and is a small effort towards creating a self-sufficient rural community similar to one reported in China. The plan of the farm aims to achieve the integration of several agricultural, aquacultural, solar energy and biogas energy components with complete recycling of waste. These include biogas plants with associated slurry and storage tanks for operating a 3-kW generator, a 3.7-kW pump, providing domestic cooking, as well as energy to operate a fruit-processing plant. Energy for water heating, crop drying and refrigeration will be supplied by solar energy. Fish, livestock, fruits and vegetables will be produced by the farm.

I survey proposals including soap bubbles, protein folding, quantum computing, quantum advice, quantum adiabatic algorithms, quantum-mechanical nonlinearities, hidden variables, relativistic time dilation, analog computing, Malament-Hogarth spacetimes, quantum gravity, closed timelike curves, and "anthropic computing." The section on soap bubbles even includes some "experimental" results. While I do not believe that any of the proposals will let us solve NP-complete problems efficiently, I argue that by studying them, we can learn something not only about computation but also about physics.

NP-MHTGR Fuel Development Program Results  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In August 1988, the Secretary of Energy announced a strategy to acquire New Production Reactor capacity for producing tritium. The strategy involved construction of a New Production Modular High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (NP-MHTGR) where the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) was selected as the Management and Operations contractor for the project. Immediately after the announcement in August 1988, tritium target particle development began with the INEEL selected as the lead laboratory. Fuel particle development was initially not considered to be on a critical path for the project, therefore, the fuel development program was to run concurrently with the design effort of the NP-MHTGR.

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.

Forbidden lists (NP and CSP for combinatorialists)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a definition of the class NP in combinatorial context as the set of languages of structures defined by finitely many forbidden lifted substructures. We apply this to special syntactically defined subclasses and show how they correspond to naturally defined (and intensively studied) combinatorial problems. We show that some types of combinatorial problems like edge colorings and graph decompositions express the full computational power of the class NP. We then characterize Constraint Satisfaction Problems (i.e. H-coloring problems) which are expressible by finitely many forbidden lifted substructures. This greatly simplifies and generalizes the earlier attempts to characterize this problem. As a corollary of this approach we perhaps find a proper setting of Feder and Vardi analysis of CSP languages within the class MMSNP.

Troubleshooting: NP-hardness and solution methods  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Troubleshooting is one of the areas where Bayesian Networks are successfully applied [7]. In the present paper we show that the generally defined troubleshooting task is NP-hard. Heuristic algorithms that find an optimal solutions are described. A method approximating the optimal solution within polynomial time is proposed. Approximations provided by different methods are compared with the optimal solutions. The comparisons are performed on models for troubleshooting of laser printers.

Characterisation of Sm-Co-Sn alloys  

SciTech Connect

Cast SmCo{sub 5-x}Sn{sub x} (x = 0.00, 0.01, 0.06 and 0.12) alloys were prepared by arc melting with subsequent thermal homogenisation. Microstructural and x-ray diffraction studies revealed that the alloys were constituted of three phases i.e. SmCo{sub 5}, Sm{sub 2}Co{sub 7} and Sm{sub 2}Co{sub 17}. The addition of Sn caused grain refinement of the alloys. It was found that the Sn addition promoted nucleation of Sm{sub 2}Co{sub 17}, segregation of solute atoms and increase in unit cell volume; consequently, significant augmentation in remanence to maximum magnetization ratios was achieved. - Research Highlights: 1. Tin up to 0.12% was added in a Samarium cobalt-SmCo5 system; discernable changes in the microstructure and phase distribution were achieved; {yields} the nucleation of Sm2Co17 phase, {yields} segregation of Sn and samarium rich Sm2Co7 phase on the grain boundaries {yields} refinement of the microstructure in term of grain size 2. Moreover, addition of Sn caused twofold increase in magnetic properties (Remanence-Mr) of the Sm-Co alloy as compared to the binary SmCo5 system.

Troubleshooting is one of the areas where Bayesian Networks are successfully applied [8]. In the present paper we show that the generally de ned troubleshooting task is NP-hard. Heuristic algorithms that find an optimal solution are described. A new method approximating the optimal solution within polynomial time is proposed. Approximations obtained through two different methods are compared with the optimal solutions. The comparisons are performed on models for troubleshooting of laser printers. We observed that the suboptimal solutions provided by the polynomial methods were not far from the optimal ones.

Distinguishing a SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from SM Higgs boson at muon collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore the possibility of distinguishing the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson via Higgs boson pair production at future muon collider. We study the behavior of the production cross section in SM and MSSM with Higgs boson mass for various choices of MSSM parameters tan \\beta and m\\sub A. We observe that at fixed CM energy, in the SM, the total cross section increases with the increase in Higgs boson mass whereas this trend is reversed for the MSSM case. The changes that occur for the MSSM case in comparison to the SM predictions are quantified in terms of the relative percentage deviation in cross section. The observed large deviations in cross section for different choices of Higgs mass suggest that the measurements of the cross section could possibly distinguish the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Experimental studies of 152Sm using multiple-step Coulomb excitation and inelastic neutron scattering provide key data that clarify the low-energy collective structure of this nucleus. No candidates for two-phonon beta-vibrational states are found. Experimental level energies of the ground-state and first excited (0+ state) rotational bands, electric monopole transition rates, reduced quadrupole transition rates, and the isomer shift of the first excited 2+ state are all described within ~10% precision using two-band mixing calculations. The basic collective structure of 152Sm is described using strong mixing of near-degenerate coexisting quasi-rotational bands with different deformations.

Combined SM Higgs Limits at the Tevatron  

SciTech Connect

We combine results from CDF and D{sup 0} 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 D{sup 0}, 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}.

Method for separating actinides. [Patent application; stripping of Np from organic extractant  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An organic solution used for processing spent nuclear reactor fuels is contacted with an aqueous nitric acid solution to strip Np(VI), U(VI), and Pu(IV) from the organic solution into the acid solution. The acid solution is exposed to ultraviolet light, which reduces Np(VI) to Np(V) without reducing U(VI) and Pu(IV). Since the solubility of Np(V) in the organic solution is much lower than that of Np(VI), U(VI), and Pu(IV), a major part of the Np is stripped from the organic solution while leaving most of the U and Pu therein.

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%.

Reactions of HS sup sm bullet and S sup sm bullet minus with molecular oxygen, H sub 2 S, HS sup minus , and S sup 2 minus : Formation of SO sub 2 sup sm bullet minus , HSSH sup sm bullet minus , HSS sup sm bullet 2 minus , and HSS sup sm bullet. [Gamma radiation  

SciTech Connect

An electron spin resonance investigation of the reactions of HS{sup {sm bullet}} and S{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} produced from H{sub 2}S, HS{sup {minus}}, and S{sup 2{minus}} in glassy matrices at low temperatures is presented. Co-60 irradiation of 8 M NaClO{sub 4}, 12 M LiCl, and alkali-metal hydroxide glasses at 77 K results in the formation of O{sup {sm bullet}{minus}}, Cl{sub 2}{sup {sm bullet}{minus}}, and e{sup {minus}}. Upon annealing to about 150 K O{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} or Cl{sub 2}{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} reacts with the solutes H{sub 2}S, HS{sup {minus}}, or S{sup 2{minus}} to form HS{sup {sm bullet}} and S{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} radicals. In the presence of molecular oxygen HS{sup {sm bullet}} and S{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} each react to form sulfur dioxide anion radical, SO{sub 2}{sup {sm bullet}{minus}}. {sup 17}O isotopic studies verify the source of the oxygen in SO{sub 2}{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} is the molecular oxygen dissolved in the matrices. In the absence of molecular oxygen, competing processes are clearly observed; i.e., HS{sup {sm bullet}} and S{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} attack H{sub 2}S and HS{sup {minus}} to form dimer radicals HSSH{sup {sm bullet}{minus}} and HSS{sup {sm bullet}2{minus}}. At low pH the authors find that HS{sup {sm bullet}} attacks H{sub 2}S to form HSS{sup {sm bullet}}. Mechanisms for the formation of these species are proposed, and hyperfine couplings and g values are reported. Ab initio molecular orbital calculations are performed to aid their understanding of the electronic structure of the various radical species formed and the energetics of their reactions.

Pesticide use knowledge and practices: A gender differences in Nepal  

SciTech Connect

It is important to understand gender difference on pesticide use knowledge, attitude and practices for identifying pesticide risks by gender and to recommend more gender-sensitive programs. However, very few studies have been conducted so far in Nepal. This study, thus, interviewed a total of 325 males and 109 females during 2005 to assess gender differences on pesticide use knowledge, attitude and practices. More than 50% females had never been to school and only <8% individuals were found trained in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Almost all males and females did not smoke, drink and eat during pesticides application and also believed that pesticides are harmful to human health, livestock, plant diversity and their environment. However, there were gender differences on household decision on pesticides to be used (p<0.001), care of wind direction during spraying (p=0.032), prior knowledge on safety measures (p=0.016), reading and understanding of pesticides labels (p<0.001), awareness of the labels (p<0.001) and protective covers. Almost all respondents were aware of negative impacts of pesticide use on human health and environment irrespective of gender; however, females were at higher risk due to lower level of pesticide use safety and awareness. It is strongly recommended to initiate gender-sensitive educational and awareness activities, especially on pesticide use practices and safety precautions.

Closed DTU fuel cycle with Np recycle and waste transmutation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A nuclear energy scenario for the 21st century that included a denatured thorium-uranium-oxide (DTU) fuel cycle and new light water reactors (LWRs) supported by accelerator-driven transmutation of waste (ATW) systems was previously described. This coupled system with the closed DTU fuel cycle provides several improvements beyond conventional LWR (CLWR) (once-through, UO{sub 2} fuel) nuclear technology: increased proliferation resistance, reduced waste, and efficient use of natural resources. However, like CLWR fuel cycles, the spent fuel in the first one-third core discharged after startup contains higher-quality Pu than the equilibrium fuel cycle. To eliminate this high-grade Pu, Np is separated and recycled with Th and U--rather than with higher actinides [(HA) including Pu]. The presence of Np in the LWR feed greatly increases the production of {sup 238}Pu so that a few kilograms of Pu generated enough alpha-decay heat that the separated Pu is highly resistant to proliferation. This alternate process also simplifies the pyrochemical separation of fuel elements (Th and U) from HAs. To examine the advantages of this concept, the authors modeled a US deployment scenario for nuclear energy that includes DTU-LWRs plus ATW`s to burn the actinides produced by these LWRs and to close the back-end of the DTU fuel cycle.

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.

Anomalous Elastic Behavior in hcp- and Sm-Type Dysprosium  

SciTech Connect

The compression behavior of elemental dysprosium in the hcp- and the Sm-type phases has been examined under hydrostatic pressure. Sm-type Dy has been found about 1% denser than the hcp phase. This increase in density is due to c-axis contraction in Sm-type Dy, whereas the a-axis even expands compared with the hcp-phase. Both the hcp- and the Sm-type phases show an inversion in the pressure derivative of the c/a ratio. For hcp-Dy this inversion is very sharp with minimal c/a at 2.5 GPa. At the same pressure, the compression behavior of hcp-Dy changes abruptly from dominantly c-axis compression to almost isotropic compression with slightly softer S{sub 11}. The bulk modulus increases at this point by a factor of {approx}2. Both hcp- and Sm-type Dy exhibit a crossover from highly anisotropic compression mostly along the c-axis to almost isotropic compression. We discuss these anomalies with respect to a possible Lifshitz transition and structural soft modes.

Does resolving PvNP require a paradigm shift?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

I shall argue that a resolution of the PvNP problem requires building an iff bridge between the domain of provability and that of computability. The former concerns how a human intelligence decides the truth of number-theoretic relations, and is formalised by the first-order Peano Arithmetic PA following Dededekind's axiomatisation of Peano's Postulates. The latter concerns how a human intelligence computes the values of number-theoretic functions, and is formalised by the operations of a Turing Machine following Turing's analysis of computable functions. I shall show that such a bridge requires objective definitions of both an `algorithmic' interpretation of PA, and an `instantiational' interpretation of PA. I shall show that both interpretations are implicit in the definition of the subjectively defined `standard' interpretation of PA. However the existence of, and distinction between, the two objectively definable interpretations---and the fact that the former is sound whilst the latter is not---is obscured by the extraneous presumption under the `standard' interpretation of PA that Aristotle's particularisation must hold over the structure N of the natural numbers. I shall argue that recognising the falseness of this belief awaits a paradigm shift in our perception of the application of Tarski's analysis (of the concept of truth in the languages of the deductive sciences) to the `standard' interpretation of PA. I shall then show that an arithmetical formula [F] is PA-provable if, and only if, [F] interprets as true under an algorithmic interpretation of PA. I shall finally show how it then follows from Goedel's construction of a formally `undecidable' arithmetical proposition that there is a Halting-type PA formula which---by Tarski's definitions---is algorithmically verifiable as true, but not algorithmically computable as true, under a sound interpretation of PA.

The complex phase relationships near the BaO-poor region of the quaternary Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O oxide system prepared in pure air (p{sub O{sub 2}}=22 kPa, 950 {sup o}C) and in 0.1% O{sub 2} (p{sub O{sub 2}}=100 Pa, 810 {sup o}C) have been determined. This investigation also included the subsolidus compatibilities in ten subsystems (Ba-Sm-Y-O, Ba-Sm-Cu-O, Ba-Y-Cu-O, Sm-Y-Cu-O, Ba-Sm-O, Ba-Y-O, Ba-Cu-O, Sm-Y-O, Sm-Cu-O, and Y-Cu-O), and the homogeneity range of five solid solutions (Ba(Sm{sub x}Y{sub 2-x})CuO{sub 5}, (Sm,Y){sub 2}O{sub 3}, (Sm,Y){sub 2}CuO{sub 4}, (Y,Sm){sub 2}Cu{sub 2}O{sub 5}, and Ba(Sm,Y){sub 2}O{sub 4}). The single phase range of the superconductor solid solution, (Ba{sub 2-x}Sm{sub x})(Sm{sub 1-y}Y{sub y})Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+z}, and the phase compatibilities in its vicinity, which are particularly important for processing, are described in detail. The phase equilibrium data of the Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O system will enable the improvement of the intrinsic superconducting properties of second-generation wires, and facilitate the flux-pinning process. -- Graphical Abstract: Phase diagram overview of the Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O system in the BaO-poor region prepared in p{sub O2}=22 kPa, 950 {sup o}C.

Phase Stability and Thermodynamic Assessment of the Np-Zr system  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Metallic fuels have an important role to play in "fast breeder" Gen-IV type nuclear reactors, and U-Pu-Zr is one of the prototypical systems. Because of the variability in fuel chemistry during burn-up, it is important to understand the effect of minor actinides and fission products on phase stability. Within this framework, we present a study on phase equilibria in the binary Np-Zr alloy system on which little work has been published. To resolve the contradictory reports on the ordering/ clustering trends of the bcc phase, a thermodynamic study is performed using the CALPHAD method. The calculated Np-Zr phase diagram is consistent with two sets of data: formation enthalpies of the bcc phase that are calculated with ab initio KKR-ASA-CPA electronic-structure method and lattice stabilities of solution phases obtained from first-principles technique. Another important feature in the Np-Zr alloy system is the non-stoichiometric delta-NpZr2 phase that forms in a hexagonal C32 structure similar to the delta-phase in the U-Zr system and the w-phase in pure Zr. An increase in the homogeneity range of the delta-phase when going from Pu to Np and to U is attributed to a lowering of its heat of formation that is caused by an increase in d-band occupation. Two different possibilities for the stability of the delta- and w- phases have been proposed in the present work. Additionally, calculated changes in enthalpy versus temperature are plotted for two alloy compositions of the Np-Zr system to guide future experimental work in resolving important issues in this system. Finally, an ab initio study, implemented with the L(S)DA U formalism, is performed for pure Np that reveals a transition from a non-magnetic to a magnetic state at a critical U parameter.

Multiple-step Coulomb excitation and inelastic neutron scattering studies of {sup 152}Sm are used to probe the E2 collectivity of excited 0{sup +} states in this 'soft' nucleus and the results are compared with model predictions. No candidates for two-phonon K{sup {pi}}=0{sup +}quadrupole vibrational states are found. A 2{sup +},K=2 state with strong E2 decay to the first excited K{sup {pi}}=0{sup +} band and a probable 3{sup +} band member are established.

SELECTION OF CORE DESIGN NO. 1 FOR TYPE 5 REPLACEMENT CORES IN SM-1 AND SM- 1A  

SciTech Connect

Nuclear and thermal analyses were performed to determine the characteristics of the Type 5 core in the SM-1 and SM-1A reactor plants as a function of geometry and composition. The following nuclear properties were investigated: core energy release, maximum midlife reactivity, average fuel burnup fraction, B-10 reactivity coefficient, and power distribution. Thermal parameter surveys determined the effects of channel thickness and power distribution upon the DNBR, nominal and hot channel thermal performance, and fuel plate thermal stress. From the nuclear and thermal analyses, a Type 5 core reference design was selected with fuel plates of 70-mil plate thick ness, 7-mil clad thickness, and 38 wt % UO/sub 2/ in the matrix, having initial core loading o4 108 Kg U/syup 235 and 260 gm B/sup 10/.

Purex Process Improvements for Pu and NP Control in Total Actinide Recycle Flowsheets  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Significant improvements are required in the Purex process to optimise it for Advanced Fuel Cycles. Two key challenges we have identified are, firstly, developing more efficient methods for U/Pu separations especially at elevated Pu concentrations and, secondly, improving recovery, control and routing of Np in a modified Purex process. A series of Purex-like flowsheets for improved Pu separations based on hydroxamic acids and are reported. Purex-like flowsheets have been tested on a glovebox-housed 30-stage miniature centrifugal contactor train. A series of trials have been performed to demonstrate the processing of feeds with varying Pu contents ranging from 7 - 40% by weight. These flowsheets have demonstrated hydroxamic acids are excellent reagents for complexant stripping of Pu being able to achieve high decontamination factors (DF) on both the U and Pu product streams and co - recover Np with Pu. The advantages of a complexant-based approach are shown to be especially relevant when AFC scenarios are considered, where the Pu content of the fuel is expected to b e significantly higher. Recent results towards modifying the Purex process to improve recovery and control of Np in short residence time contactors are reported. Work on the development of chemical and process models to describe the complicated behaviour of Np under primary separation conditions (i.e. the HA extraction contactor) is described. To test the performance of the model a series of experiments were performed including testing of flowsheets on a fume-hood housed miniature centrifugal contactor train. The flowsheet was designed to emulate the conditions of a primar y separations contactor with the Np split between the U-solvent product and aqueous raffinate. In terms of Np routing the process model showed good agreement with flowsheet trial however much further work is required to fully understand this complex system. (authors)

Interplay between Np95 and Eme1 in the DNA damage response  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Mus81 (methyl methansulfonate UV sensitive clone 81) and Eme1 (essential meiotic endonuclease 1, also known as MMS4) form a heterodimeric endonuclease that is critical for genomic stability and the response to DNA crosslink damage and replication blockade. However, relatively little is known as to how this endonuclease is regulated following DNA damage. Here, we report mammalian Eme1 interacts with Np95, an E3 ubiquitin ligase that participates in chromatin modification, replication-linked epigenetic maintenance and the DNA damage response. Np95 and Eme1 co-localize on nuclear chromatin following exposure of cells to camptothecin, an agent that promotes the collapse of replication forks. The observed co localization following DNA damage was found to be dependent on an intact RING finger, the structural motif that encodes the E3 ubiquitin ligase activity of Np95. Taken together, these findings link Mus81-Eme1 with the replication-associated chromatin modifier functions of Np95 in the cellular response to DNA damage.

Variable temperature electrochemical strain microscopy of Sm-doped ceria  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Variable temperature electrochemical strain microscopy has been used to study the electrochemical activity of Sm-doped ceria as a function of temperature and bias. The electrochemical strain microscopy hysteresis loops have been collected across the surface at different temperatures and the relative activity at different temperatures has been compared. The relaxation behavior of the signal at different temperatures has been also evaluated to relate kinetic process during bias induced electrochemical reactions with temperature and two different kinetic regimes have been identified. The strongly non-monotonic dependence of relaxation behavior on temperature is interpreted as evidence for water-mediated mechanisms.

DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN STUDIES OF SM-2 PRESSURIZER  

SciTech Connect

Comparisons to SM-1 plant performance indicated that the computer model previously used to determine pressurizer performance and select the proper size was significantly in error in treating loss of load transients because it failed to account for the condensation which automatically takes place on the vessel wall and liquid interface. This also made the model incapable of evaluating methods of augmenting this condensation. The most apPropriste condensation rates that could be arrived at from the literature were selected, and the analog computer model revised and greatly augmented to incorporate this phenomenon. Using this model, a generalized curve was derived for sizing a pressurizer for the SM-2 or sininlar PWR plants. The new model was also used to evaluate some new design concepts, one of which appears very worthwhile for large pressurizers, or whatever size is particularly critical. If automatic pressure-repulated sprays or standpipe are provided, the total space required between minimum and maximum pressures due to positive and negative load transients can be further reduced by making the target steady-state pressure a function of steam generator load, with the no-load level approximately 100 psi higher than the full-load pressure.

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The {sup 237}Np(n,f) cross sections have been measured at the n-TOF facility relative to the {sup 235}U and {sup 238}U fission cross sections. The n-TOF spallation neutron source at CERN is characterized by a high intensity flux, an excellent time resolution and an extensive neutron energy range (from eV to GeV). A fast ionization chamber was used as a fission fragment detector with efficiency better than 97%. Preliminary {sup 237}Np(n,f) cross sections have been deduced in the energy range from 20 keV to 10 MeV and are found in good agreement with data from literature.

Delayed neutron measurements for Th-232, Np-237, Pu-239, Pu-241 and depleted uranium  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The neutron emission rates from five very pure actinide samples (Th-232, Np-237, Pu-239, Pu-241 and depleted uranium) were measured following equilibrium irradiation in fast and thermal neutron fluxes. The relative abundances (alphas) for the first four groups were calculated from the delayed neutron emission (counts vs. time) data using Keepin's 6-group decay constants (lambdas) for Th-232, Pu-239 and depleted uranium (both fast and thermal neutron induced fissions). The relative abundances (alphas) for the first five groups were calculated for the fast neutron induced fission of Np-237 using the 7-group lambdas obtained by Charlton (1997). The relative abundances for the first five groups were also calculated using the 7-group lambdas proposed by Loaiza and Haskin (2000), the 8-group lambdas proposed by Campbell and Spriggs (1998) and the 8-group lambdas proposed by Piksaikin (2000) for all of the samples (fast neutron induced fission only for Th-232 and Np-237, fast and thermal neutron induced fission for the remainder). Fission product yield and delayed neutron emission probability data from the ENDF-349 and JEF 2.2 nuclear data libraries were also used to simulate neutron emission data from the samples. The calculated neutron yield curves were used to obtain group relative abundances for each of the five actinide samples (fast neutron induced fission only for Th-232 and Np-237, fast and thermal neutron induced fission for the remainder) based on each set of proposed lambdas. The relative abundances obtained from the experiments and calculations are compared and the differences are noted and discussed.

MOX and MOX with 237Np/241Am Inert Fission Gas Generation Comparison in ATR  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The treatment of spent fuel produced in nuclear power generation is one of the most important issues to both the nuclear community and the general public. One of the viable options to long-term geological disposal of spent fuel is to extract plutonium, minor actinides (MA), and potentially long-lived fission products from the spent fuel and transmute them into short-lived or stable radionuclides in currently operating light-water reactors (LWR), thus reducing the radiological toxicity of the nuclear waste stream. One of the challenges is to demonstrate that the burnup-dependent characteristic differences between Reactor-Grade Mixed Oxide (RG-MOX) fuel and RG-MOX fuel with MA Np-237 and Am 241 are minimal, particularly, the inert gas generation rate, such that the commercial MOX fuel experience base is applicable. Under the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI), developmental fuel specimens in experimental assembly LWR-2 are being tested in the northwest (NW) I-24 irradiation position of the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR). The experiment uses MOX fuel test hardware, and contains capsules with MOX fuel consisting of mixed oxide manufactured fuel using reactor grade plutonium (RG-Pu) and mixed oxide manufactured fuel using RG-Pu with added Np/Am. This study will compare the fuel neutronics depletion characteristics of Case-1 RG-MOX and Case-2 RG-MOX with Np/Am.

APPLICATIONS OF GIS IN COMMUNITY-BASED FOREST MANAGEMENT IN AUSTRALIA (AND NEPAL) By  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Community forestry is now a popular approach in forest management globally. Although local communities have previously been involved in forest management in various minor ways, community-based forestry is very new in the Australian context. Because of the multiple interests of forest users and other community interest groups, a wider range of up-to-date information is being requested in community forestry, than has been used in ‘conventional ’ government-based forest management in the past. The overall aim of this research was to explore the potential and constraints for the application of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology in community forest management in Australia and to relate the results also to Nepal. Specific objectives were to: (i) review the applications of GIS in forestry and community forestry worldwide, (ii) determine stakeholders ’ views on their requirements for the use of GIS in community-based forest management, (iii) prepare and demonstrate various practical applications of GIS requested by community groups in the Wombat State Forest, (iv) identify the strengths and limitations of GIS in community forestry, and (v) relate findings on GIS

Nickel-induced down-regulation of {Delta}Np63 and its role in the proliferation of keratinocytes  

SciTech Connect

Epidemiological, animal, and cell studies have demonstrated that nickel compounds are human carcinogens. The mechanisms of their carcinogenic actions remain to be investigated. p63, a close homologue of the p53 tumor suppressor protein, has been linked to cell fate determination and/or maintenance of self-renewing populations in several epithelial tissues, including skin, mammary gland, and prostate. {Delta}Np63, a dominant negative isoform of p63, is amplified in a variety of epithelial tumors including squamous cell carcinomas and carcinomas of the prostate and mammary glands. The present study shows that nickel suppressed {Delta}Np63 expression in a short-time treatment (up to 48 h). Nickel treatment caused activation of NF-{kappa}B. Blockage of NF-{kappa}B partially reversed nickel-induced {Delta}Np63 suppression. Nickel decreased interferon regulatory factor (IRF) 3 and IRF7, IKK{epsilon}, and Sp100. Over-expression of IRF3 increased {Delta}Np63 expression suppressed by nickel. Nickel was able to activate p21, and its activation was offset by the over-expression of {Delta}Np63. In turn, elevated p63 expression counteracted the ability of nickel to restrict cell growth. The present study demonstrated that nickel decreased interferon regulatory proteins IRF3 and IRF7, and activated NF-{kappa}B, resulting in {Delta}Np63 suppression and then p21 up-regulation. {Delta}Np63 plays an important role in nickel-induced cell proliferation. - Highlights: > Ni suppressed {Delta}Np63 expression in HaCat cells. > Ni activated NF-{kappa}B, decreased expressions of IRF3 and IRF7, IKK{epsilon}, and Sp100. > Over-expression of IRF3 increased {Delta}Np63 expression suppressed by Ni. > Ni activated p21, and its activation was offset by over-expression of {Delta}Np63. > Elevated p63 expression counteracted the ability of nickel to restrict cell growth.

Reduction potential of the sulfhydryl radical: Pulse radiolysis and laser flash photolysis studies of the formation and reactions of {sm_bullet}SH and HSSH{sm_bullet}{sup {minus}} in aqueous solutions  

SciTech Connect

H{sub 2}S, which is a very toxic gas, has a large number of natural and anthropogenic sources, and the safe removal of this substance has been a matter of ongoing industrial concern. Formation and reactions of the {sm_bullet}SH/{sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}} and HSSH{sm_bullet}{sup {minus}}/HSS{sm_bullet}{sup 2{minus}} radicals in aqueous solutions have been studied by excimer laser flash photolysis and by pulse radiolysis. Acidic H{sub 2}S solutions can be photolyzed with 193 nm laser pulses and produce a transient species with {lambda}{sub max} at 240 nm, ascribed to the {sm_bullet}SH/{sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}} radical. Solutions of SH{sup {minus}} can be photolyzed also with 248 nm laser pulses to produce the {sm_bullet}SH/{sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}} reacts with SH{sup {minus}} ({kappa}{sub f} = 4 {times} 10{sup 9} L/mol s, {kappa}{sub r} = 5 {times} 10{sup 5} s{sup {minus}1}) to form HSSH{sm_bullet}{sup {minus}}/HSS{sm_bullet}{sup 2{minus}}, with {lambda}{sub max} at 380 nm. Both {sm_bullet}SH/{sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}} and HSSH{sm_bullet}{sup {minus}}/HSS{sm_bullet}{sup 2{minus}} react rapidly with O{sub 2}; the former produces SO{sub 2}{sm_bullet}{sup {minus}} ({kappa} = 5 {times} 10{sup 9} L/mol s), and the latter produces O{sub 2}{sm_bullet} ({kappa} = 4 {times} 10{sup 8} L/mol s). Both radicals react with olefinic compounds. The monomeric radical oxidizes Fe(CN){sub 6}{sup 4{minus}}, SO{sub 3}{sup 2{minus}}, ClO{sub 2}{sup {minus}}, and chlorpromazine. The dimeric radical is a weaker oxidant toward ferrocyanide but reduces N-methylpyridinium compounds. The reduction potential for the dimeric radical at pH 7 was determined from one-electron transfer equilibria with Mo(CN){sub 8}{sup 3{minus}} and with the 4-methoxyaniline radical cation and found to be 0.69 V vs NHE. From the equilibrium constant K = [HSS{sm_bullet}{sup 2{minus}}]/[SH{sup {minus}}][{sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}}] = 8 {times} 10{sup 3} L/mol, the reduction potential for ({sm_bullet}S{sup {minus}},H{sup +}/SH{sup {minus}}) is calculated to be 0.92 V.

The 11/2{sup -}[505] neutron extruder orbital in {sup 159}Sm  

SciTech Connect

Excited states in {sup 159}Sm, populated following the spontaneous fission of {sup 252}Cf have been studied by means of {gamma} spectroscopy, using the Gammasphere array. In {sup 159}Sm we have identified an isomeric level with a half-life of T{sub 1/2}=116(8) ns at an excitation energy of 1276.8 keV and observed a rotational band on top of this isomer. On the basis of the observed properties of the isomer and the band on top of it we propose that the 1276.8-keV level in {sup 159}Sm corresponds to the 11/2{sup -}[505] neutron extruder configuration. The new excitation scheme of {sup 159}Sm is compared to quasiparticle rotor model calculations.

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 properties of (Sm,Y){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} melt-spun ribbons  

SciTech Connect

An investigation of the synthesis of the (Sm{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} (x = 0 to 0.5) phase and its magnetic properties is presented. (Sm{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} (x = 0 to 0.5) melt-spun ribbons that fully or mainly consisted of the amorphous phase and which showed low coercivity were prepared. Heat treatment of the melt-spun ribbons resulted in the formation of the (Sm,Y){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} phase. The highest remanence, 50 emu/g, was achieved in the annealed (Sm{sub 0.7}Y{sub 0.3}){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} melt-spun ribbon. However,the annealed (Sm{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} (x = 0.4 to 0.5) melt-spun ribbons did not contain the (Sm,Y){sub 5}Fe{sub 17} phase and showed low coercivity values.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

Influence of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3} on the crystallization and luminescence properties of boroaluminosilicate glasses  

SciTech Connect

Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}-doped SiO{sub 2}-B{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-BaO glasses were prepared by melting method in order to study the influence of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3} on the crystallization behavior and luminescence properties. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy were used to characterize the rare earth glasses and the crystalline phases after heat-treatment. The course of phase separation and devitrification of the glasses were also investigated. The results show that the thermal stability of the glasses decreases with the increase of content of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The crystalline phase changed from SmAl{sub 2.07}(B{sub 4}O{sub 10})O{sub 0.6} to SmBO{sub 3}. Divalent Sm{sup 2+} ions were detected in the crystallization product after heat-treatment. The valence transformation from Sm{sup 3+} to Sm{sup 2+} in the crystal suggests the samarium atoms entering the barium sites. The charge carried in vacancy defect induced by the substitution led to the partial reduction process. The reduction of Sm{sup 3+} ions was promoted by the increasing of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3} content or the extending of heat-treated holding time in boroaluminosilicate glass.

Irradiation-induced reduction and luminescence properties of Sm{sup 2+} doped in BaBPO{sub 5}  

SciTech Connect

Usually, Sm{sup 2+} ions could be reduced by heating the materials in reducing atmospheres. Exposure to ionizing radiations is also known to cause Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} conversion. In this work, BaBPO{sub 5} doped with the samarium ion was prepared by high temperature solid-state reaction. Sm{sup 2+} ions were obtained by two different reduction methods, i.e., heating in H{sub 2} reduced atmosphere and X-ray irradiation. The measurements of X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron microscope (SEM) were investigated. It is found that the conversion of Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} is very efficient in BaBPO{sub 5} hosts after X-ray irradiation. Sm{sup 2+} ions under these two reduction methods exhibit different characteristics that were studied by measurements of luminescence and decay. The results showed that the luminescence properties of Sm{sup 2+} ions in BaBPO{sub 5} were highly dependent on the sample preparation conditions. - Graphical abstract: The Sm doped in BaBPO{sub 5} as-prepared in air contains only Sm{sup 3+} ions and shows its fluorescence bands due to the {sup 4}G{sub 5/2} to {sup 6}H{sub 5/2}, {sup 6}H{sub 7/2}, {sup 6}H{sub 9/2}, and {sup 6}H{sub 11/2} transitions (a) under the excitation of 488 nm Ar{sup +}-ion laser. The emission spectra of the samples after X-ray subsequentially irradiations are characteristic of Sm{sup 2+} transitions between the energy levels of 4f{sup 6} electronic configurations (b). It is found that the conversion of Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} is very efficient in BaBPO{sub 5} hosts after X-ray irradiation.

The recent absolute total np and pp cross section determinations: quality of data description and prediction of experimental observables  

SciTech Connect

The absolute total cross sections for np and pp scattering below 1000 MeV are determined based on partial-wave analyses (PWAs) of nucleon-nucleon scattering data. These cross sections are compared with the most recent ENDF/B-VII.0 and JENDL-3.3 data files, and the Nijmegen PWA. Systematic deviations from the ENDF/B-VII.0 and JENDL-3.3 evaluations are found to exist in the low-energy region. Comparison of the np evaluation with the result of most recent np total and differential cross section measurements will be discussed. Results of those measurements were not used in the evaluation database. A comparison was done to check a quality of evaluation and its capabilities to predict experimental observables. Excellent agreement was found between the new experimental data and our PWA predictions.

Mound-ACT*DE*CON{sup SM} feasibility study. Phase 2: Final report  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A portion of the abandoned Miami-Erie Canal paralleling the Greater Miami River receives the runoff and storm-water discharge from Mound Laboratory. In 1969, a low-level plutonium leak contaminated sediment as far away as 1.5 mi from the Mound site along the old canal system. An estimated one million cubic feet of sediment requires remediation. The technology being evaluated for the remediation of the low-level plutonium-238 contamination of the sediment involves two processes: washing the sediments with ACT*DE*CON{sup SM} solution to dissolve the contaminant, followed by extraction of the solution and processing with the MAG*SEP{sup SM} process to concentrate the contaminant and allow reuse of the ACT*DE*CON{sup SM} solution. The processes are being optimized for pilot-scale and field demonstration. Phase 2 of the project primarily involved identification at the laboratory scale of the optimal ACT*DE*CON{sup SM} formulation, identification of the ion-exchanger and MAG*SEP{sup SM} particles, verification of the plutonium mobility in the treated soil, and evaluation of other process parameters according to a series of tasks.

Chemical control of the SM-2 was evaluated both as a partial substitute for burnable poison in the fuel element meat and as a means of improving plant performance. Based on a review of existing information, boric acid was chosen as the reference soluble poison. It was shown that 60% of the burnable B/sup 10/ in the fuel element matrix could be replaced by soluble B/sup 10/ in the coolant without impairing plant stability during load transients. The feasibility of improving power distribution and reducing the number of control rods by supplementing the burnable poison with chemical control was also demonstrated.

hep-ph/0106116 Distinguishing a MSSM Higgs Boson from the SM Higgs Boson at a  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The decoupling properties of the Higgs sector in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) imply that a light CP-even Higgs boson discovered at the Tevatron or LHC may closely resemble the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. In this paper, we investigate how precision measurements of Higgs properties at a Linear Collider (LC) can distinguish between a CP-even Higgs boson of the MSSM and the SM Higgs boson. We review the expected theoretical behavior of the partial widths and branching ratios for decays of the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons with significant couplings to the W and Z bosons, including the leading radiative corrections to the mixing angle ? and tan ?-enhanced vertex corrections. The general expectation is that the Higgs couplings to W + W ? , ZZ, cŻc and tŻt should quickly approach their SM values for increasing CP-odd Higgs mass mA, while the couplings to b Ż b and ? + ? ? do so more slowly. Using the expected experimental accuracy in determining SM branching ratios and partial widths, we demonstrate the sensitivity of measurements at the LC to variations in the MSSM parameters, with particular attention to the decoupling limit. For a wide range of MSSM parameters, the LC is sensitive to mA ? 600 GeV almost independently of tan ?. For large values of tan ? and some specific choices of MSSM parameters [e.g., At” < 0 and |At | ? |” | ? O(1 TeV)], one of the CP-even Higgs bosons can be SM-like independent of the value of mA. In the case of large deviations from the SM, we present a procedure using branching ratio measurements to extract the supersymmetric correction to the b quark mass.

Growth and photoluminescence of self-catalyzed GaP/GaNP core/shell nanowires on Si(111) by gas source molecular beam epitaxy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We report a study on self-catalyzed GaP/GaNP core/shell nanowires (NWs) grown on Si(111) by gas-source molecular beam epitaxy. Scanning electron microscopy images show that vertical and uniform GaP NWs and GaP/GaNP core/shell NWs are grown on Si(111). The density ranges from {approx}1 x 10{sup 7} to {approx}5 x 10{sup 8} cm{sup -2} across the substrate. Typical diameters are {approx}110 nm for GaP NWs and {approx}220 nm for GaP/GaNP NWs. Room temperature photoluminescence (PL) signal from the GaP/GaNP core/shell NWs confirms that N is incorporated in the shell and the average N content is {approx}0.9%. The PL low-energy tail is significantly reduced, compared to bulk GaNP.

In these calculations, the pre-equilibrium and equilibrium effects have been investigated. Statistical model calculations, based on the Hauser-Feshbach formalism, have been carried out using the TALYS-1.0 and were compared with existing experimental data as well as with evaluated data files (Experimental Nuclear Reaction Data (EXFOR).According to these calculations, we assume that these model calculations can be applied to some heavy elements, ejected into interstellar medium by dramatic supernova events.

Measurements of delayed neutron emission from Np-237, Am-241, and Am-243  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Isotopes of transuranic elements are produced as a result of successive radiative capture reactions in the fuel of a nuclear reactor. Typically, these transuranic isotopes decay through long chains, have long half lives and dominate the long term toxicity of the spent reactor fuel. One of the options for waste management is to remove the transuranic from spent fuel by chemical processing, to load them into new special fuel elements, and to transmute them by neutron induced fission into shorter-lived fission fragments. Previous studies have shown the feasibility of actinide transmutation in either Light Water Reactors or Liquid Metal Fast Reactors. Due to the anticipated high transuranic loadings in the fuel of actinide burner reactors, the neutronic properties of the transuranic isotopes will have a significant effect on the operational and safety characteristics of such reactors. Experiments to determine delayed neutron group yields and decay constants for Np-237, Am-241, and Am-243 have been designed and carried out. The experiments were conducted at Texas A&M University TRIGA reactor using a very fast pneumatic transfer system.

SciTech Connect

With the exception of a brief period of slightly elevated chloride level in the secondary blowdown, water-chemistry conditions during the period were satisfactory. During the period, the reactor was shut down for end-of-core-life testing and rearrangement. A set of specifications covering all electronic and electromechanical mechanisms required to control the SM-1 reactor through the rod- drive motors and clutches was prepared and issued. Installation of instrumentation for plant response and system performance was virtually completed. Work on the interpretation of long-lived radiochemical data obtained at the SM-1 during core lifetime was continued. Analysis of all fissionproduct data collected during Core I life has started. Thirty-eight stationary and seven control subassemblies from SM-1 Core II were checked for alpha contamination by a gas-flow proportional-counting technique. The work on the final design of a waste-disposal system for SM-lA was stopped and an investigation of an interim system containing a bypass sampling system was undertaken. Work continued on tests 202, 203, and 204 in the activitybuildup phase of Test Series 200. Core- physics measurements were taken at end of Core I life to complete the series of measurements made throughout the lifetime of the core. (W.L.H.)

Mechanism for radiative recombination and defect properties of GaP/GaNP core/shell nanowires  

SciTech Connect

Recombination processes in GaP/GaNP core/shell nanowires (NWs) grown on a Si substrate by molecular beam epitaxy are examined using a variety of optical characterization techniques, including cw- and time-resolved photoluminescence and optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR). Superior optical quality of the structures is demonstrated based on the observation of intense emission from a single NW at room temperature. This emission is shown to originate from radiative transitions within N-related localized states. From ODMR, growth of GaP/GaNP NWs is also found to facilitate formation of complex defects containing a P atom at its core that act as centers of competing non-radiative recombination.

Can we distinguish an MSSM higgs from a SM higgs at a linear collider?  

SciTech Connect

The authors study the prospects for distinguishing the CP-even Higgs boson of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) from the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson by measuring its branching ratios at an e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} linear collider. The regions of the M{sub A} - tan {beta} plane in which an MSSM Higgs boson can be distinguished from the SM Higgs boson depend strongly upon the supersymmetric parameters that enter the radiative corrections to the Higgs mass matrix and the Higgs couplings to fermions. In some regions of parameter space it is possible to extract the supersymmetric correction to the relation between the b quark mass and its Yukawa coupling from Higgs branching ratio measurements.

Search for rare SM processes in the MET+b-jets signature at CDF  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The missing transverse energy (E{sub T}) plus b-jets signature is very promising for searches for the Higgs boson or new physics. Indeed, E{sub T} naturally arises from unidentified particles such as neutrinos, neutralinos, gravitons, etc., and b-quarks are the main decay products of a low mass Higgs boson as well as of several exotic particles. The main challenge is to identify and reject the numerous standard model (SM) backgrounds that mimic this signature. This is especially so for QCD multi-jet production, a large background due to mis-measurement (rather than undetectable particles). We present state-of-the-art data-driven and multivariate techniques to characterize and reject this instrumental background. These techniques make analyses in this signature as sensitive as those using lepton identification and allow probing for rare SM processes. We describe searches for electroweak single top production, a part of the observation of single top by CDF, and for a low mass SM Higgs boson, one of the most sensitive among low mass Higgs searches at CDF. We also present a measurement of the top pair cross-section in this signature, and discuss other analyses and future prospects.

High-temperature studies of the magnetic susceptibility of samarium and the Al{sub 2}Sm compound  

SciTech Connect

The magnetic susceptibility of metallic samarium and the Al{sub 2}Sm intermetallic compound has been experimentally studied by the Faraday method in the temperature range of 300-1800 K. It has been shown that the temperature dependences of the magnetic susceptibility of Sm and Al{sub 2}Sm in a crystalline state can be described in the framework of Van Vleck paramagnetism theory taking into account variable valence and the contribution from the conduction electrons. Using this theoretical interpretation of the data, the effective valence of samarium in the metallic state and in the Al{sub 2}Sm intermetallic compound has been estimated as a function of the temperature.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

X-ray induced Sm{sup 3+} to Sm{sup 2+} conversion in fluorophosphate and fluoroaluminate glasses for the monitoring of high-doses in microbeam radiation therapy  

SciTech Connect

Fluorophosphate and fluoroaluminate glasses doped with trivalent samarium were evaluated as sensors of x-ray radiation for microbeam radiation therapy at the Canadian Light Source using the conversion of trivalent Sm{sup 3+} to the divalent form Sm{sup 2+}. Both types of glasses show similar conversion rates and may be used as a linear sensor up to {approx}150 Gy and as a nonlinear sensor up to {approx}2400 Gy, where saturation is reached. Experiments with a multi-slit collimator show high spatial resolution of the conversion pattern; the pattern was acquired by a confocal fluorescence microscopy technique. The effects of previous x-ray exposure may be erased by annealing at temperatures exceeding the glass transition temperature T{sub g} while annealing at T{sub A} < T{sub g} enhances the Sm conversion. This enhancement is explained by a thermally stimulated relaxation of host glass ionic matrix surrounding x-ray induced Sm{sup 2+} ions. In addition, some of the Sm{sup 3+}-doped glasses were codoped with Eu{sup 2+}-ions but the results show that there is no marked improvement in the conversion efficiency by the introduction of Eu{sup 2+}.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

High temperature magnetic properties of SmCo{sub 5}/{alpha}-Fe(Co) bulk nanocomposite magnets  

SciTech Connect

To find alternative high temperature magnets containing no heavy rare earths for power applications, SmCo{sub 5}/Fe bulk nanocomposite magnets with enhanced energy density and high thermal stability have been produced by using a ball-milling plus warm-compaction route. Up to 30% of the Fe soft magnetic phase has been added to the composites with grain size <20 nm distributed homogenously in the matrix of the SmCo{sub 5} hard magnetic phase. It was observed that the microstructure does not change with temperature up to 500 Degree-Sign C. It is also observed that the thermal stability of bulk nanocomposite samples is closely related to bulk density. Energy products above 11 MGOe have been obtained at 300 Degree-Sign C in fully dense bulk SmCo{sub 5}/Fe nanocomposite magnets, which is 65% higher than that of a single-phase counterpart at the same temperature.

STARTUP AND INITIAL TESTING OF SM-1 CORE II WITH SPECIAL COMPONENTS  

SciTech Connect

The loading operation for SM-1 Core II is described. Results of startup physics measurements (Test A-300 (Series) and fission product iodine monitoring in the primary coolant are given. The SM-1 Core II initial loading progressed satisfactorily, fulfilling the predictions of the zero power experiment performed at the Alco Criticality Facility. The initial cold clean five rod bank position was 6.53 in.; the initial hot, no xenon, five rod bank position was 9.62 in.; the initial hot, equilibrium xenon, five rod bank position was 11.41 in.; and the initial hot, peak xenon, five rod bank position was 12.14 in. Rods A and B were 19.00 in. in all four measurements. Stuck rod measurements indicated that an adequate shutdown margin was available with 20% of the rods fully withdrawn. All rod calibrations indicated a distinct shift and broadening of the peaks when compared with similar Core I calibrations. The temperature coefficient for Core II was 3.5 cents/ deg F at 440 deg F. Equilibrium xenon was worth approximately - 00 while peak xenon was worth - 43, both relative to the hot, no xenon core condition. During the period June 2, 1961 through September 30, 1961, the reactor operated at a total of 935.68 deg Fdays which is equivalent to 1.34 MWYR of energy release and represents an average load factor of 44% typical of training periods. The estimated reactivity in the core at startup is .00. A core life of 12.2 MWYR is predicted for the original configuration of Core II. The results of gross fission product iodine monitoring showed that those levels were about one-third to one-half of those found at the end of Core I Operation. (auth)

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.

Structural and physical properties of layered oxy-arsenides LnRuAsO (Ln=La, Nd, Sm, Gd)  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Polycrystalline samples of LaRuAsO, NdRuAsO, SmRuAsO, and GdRuAsO have been synthesized and studied using powder x-ray diffraction, electrical transport, magnetization, and heat capacity measurements. Variations in structural properties across the series reveal a trend toward more ideal tetrahedral coordination around Ru as the size of the rare earth element is reduced. The lattice parameters of these Ru compounds show a more anisotropic response to variation in Ln than their Fe analogs, and significant anisotropy in thermal expansion is also observed. Transport measurements show metallic behavior, and carrier concentrations near 10{sup 21}-10{sup 22} electrons per cm{sup 3} are inferred from simple analysis of Hall effect measurements. Anomalies in resistivity, magnetization, and heat capacity indicate antiferromagnetic ordering of rare earth moments at 5 K for GdRuAsO, 4.5 K for SmRuAsO, and heat capacity of LaRuAsO, NdRuAsO, SmRuAsO, and GdRuAsO. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Experimental investigation of LaRuAsO, NdRuAsO, SmRuAsO, and GdRuAsO. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Anisotropic lattice response to changing Ln radius and temperature. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Ru coordination becomes more ideal as Ln radius is reduced.

Monte Carlo calculated TG-60 dosimetry parameters for the {beta}{sup -} emitter {sup 153}Sm brachytherapy source  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: The formalism recommended by Task Group 60 (TG-60) of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) is applicable for {beta} sources. Radioactive biocompatible and biodegradable {sup 153}Sm glass seed without encapsulation is a {beta}{sup -} emitter radionuclide with a short half-life and delivers a high dose rate to the tumor in the millimeter range. This study presents the results of Monte Carlo calculations of the dosimetric parameters for the {sup 153}Sm brachytherapy source. Methods: Version 5 of the (MCNP) Monte Carlo radiation transport code was used to calculate two-dimensional dose distributions around the source. The dosimetric parameters of AAPM TG-60 recommendations including the reference dose rate, the radial dose function, the anisotropy function, and the one-dimensional anisotropy function were obtained. Results: The dose rate value at the reference point was estimated to be 9.21{+-}0.6 cGy h{sup -1} {mu}Ci{sup -1}. Due to the low energy beta emitted from {sup 153}Sm sources, the dose fall-off profile is sharper than the other beta emitter sources. The calculated dosimetric parameters in this study are compared to several beta and photon emitting seeds. Conclusions: The results show the advantage of the {sup 153}Sm source in comparison with the other sources because of the rapid dose fall-off of beta ray and high dose rate at the short distances of the seed. The results would be helpful in the development of the radioactive implants using {sup 153}Sm seeds for the brachytherapy treatment.

Ionization of Sodium and Rubidium nS, nP and nD Rydberg atoms by blackbody radiation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Results of theoretical calculations of ionization rates of Rb and Na Rydberg atoms by blackbody radiation (BBR) are presented. Calculations have been performed for nS, nP and nD states of Na and Rb, which are commonly used in a variety of experiments, at principal quantum numbers n=8-65 and at three ambient temperatures of 77, 300 and 600 K. A peculiarity of our calculations is that we take into account the contributions of BBR-induced redistribution of population between Rydberg states prior to photoionization and field ionization by extraction electric field pulses. The obtained results show that these phenomena affect both the magnitude of measured ionization rates and shapes of their dependencies on n. The calculated ionization rates are compared with the results of our earlier measurements of BBR-induced ionization rates of Na nS and nD Rydberg states with n=8-20 at 300 K. A good agreement for all states except nS with n>15 is observed. We also present the useful analytical formulae for quick estimation ...

The obtained results show that these phenomena affect both the magnitude of measured ionization rates and shapes of their dependencies on n. The calculated ionization rates are compared with the results of our earlier measurements of BBR-induced ionization rates of Na nS and nD Rydberg states with n=8-20 at 300 K. A good agreement for all states except nS with n>15 is observed. We also present the useful analytical formulae for quick estimation of BBR ionization rates of Rydberg atoms.

Equivalent Circuit Description of Non-compensated n-p Codoped TiO2 as Intermediate Band Solar Cells  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The novel concept of non-compensated n-p codoping has made it possible to create tunable intermediate bands in the intrinsic band gap of TiO2, making the codoped TiO2 a promising material for developing intermediate band solar cells (IBSCs). Here we investigate the quantum efficiency of such IBSCs within two scenarios - with and without current extracted from the extended intermediate band. Using the ideal equivalent circuit model, we find that the maximum efficiency of 57% in the first scenario and 53% in the second are both much higher than the Shockley-Queisser limit from single gap solar cells. We also obtain various key quantities of the circuits, a useful step in realistic development of TiO2 based solar cells invoking device integration. These equivalent circuit results are also compared with the efficiencies obtained directly from consideration of electron transition between the energy bands, and both approaches reveal the intriguing existence of double peaks in the maximum quantum efficiency as a function of the relative location of IBs.

Effect of Front-Side Silver Metallization on Underlying n+-p Junction in Multicrystalline Silicon Solar Cells: Preprint  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We report on the effect of front-side Ag metallization on the underlying n+-p junction of multicrystalline Si solar cells. The junction quality beneath the contacts was investigated by characterizing the uniformities of the electrostatic potential and doping concentration across the junction, using scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy and scanning capacitance microscopy. We investigated cells with a commercial Ag paste (DuPont PV159) and fired at furnace setting temperatures of 800 degrees, 840 degrees, and 930 degrees C, which results in actual cell temperatures ~100 degrees C lower than the setting temperature and the three cells being under-, optimal-, and over-fired. We found that the uniformity of the junction beneath the Ag contact was significantly degraded by the over-firing, whereas the junction retained good uniformity with the optimal- and under-fire temperatures. Further, Ag crystallites with widely distributed sizes from <100 nm to several ?m were found at the Ag/Si interface of the over-fired cell. Large crystallites were imaged as protrusions into Si deeper than the junction depth. However, the junction was not broken down; instead, it was reformed on the entire front of the crystallite/Si interface. We propose a mechanism of the junction-quality degradation, based on emitter Si melting at the temperature around the Ag-Si eutectic point during firing, and subsequent recrystallization with incorporation of impurities in the Ag paste and with formation of crystallographic defects during quenching.

Ternary rare-earth zinc arsenides REZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2} (RE=La-Nd, Sm)  

SciTech Connect

The ternary rare-earth zinc arsenides REZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2} (RE=La-Nd, Sm) were prepared by reaction of the elements at 800 deg. C. Single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction analysis revealed a defect SrZnBi{sub 2}-type average structure for the La member (Pearson symbol tI16, space group I4/mmm, Z=4; a=4.0770(9) A, c=20.533(5) A), in contrast to defect HfCuSi{sub 2}-type average structures for the remaining RE members (Pearson symbol tP8, space group P4/nmm, Z=2; a=4.0298(5)-3.9520(4) A, c=10.222(1)-10.099(1) A in the progression from Ce to Sm). The homogeneity range is not appreciable (estimated to be narrower than 0.6<1-x<0.7 in SmZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2}) and the formula REZn{sub 0.67}As{sub 2} likely represents the Zn-rich phase boundary. The Ce-Nd members are Curie-Weiss paramagnets. LaZn{sub 0.67}As{sub 2} shows activated behavior in its electrical resistivity, whereas SmZn{sub 0.67}As{sub 2} exhibits anomalies in its temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity. - Graphical abstract: LaZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2} adopts a SrZnBi{sub 2}-type structure whereas the remaining members of the REZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2} series (RE=Ce-Nd, Sm) adopt a HfCuSi{sub 2}-type structure. Highlights: > REZn{sub 1-x}As{sub 2} adopts SrZnBi{sub 2}-type (RE=La) or HfCuSi{sub 2}-type (RE=Ce-Nd, Sm) structures. > Trends in RE substitution and local distortion around Zn-centered tetrahedra can be rationalized by geometrical factors. > Zn vacancies occur to reduce Zn-As and As-As antibonding interactions.

A neutronic feasibility study for LEU conversion of the WWR-SM research reactor in Uzbekistan.  

SciTech Connect

The WWR-SM research reactor in Uzbekistan has operated at 10 MW since 1979, using Russian-supplied IRT-3M fuel assemblies containing 90% enriched uranium. Burnup tests of three full-sized IRT-3M FA with 36% enrichment were successfully completed to a burn up of about {approximately}50% in 1987-1989. In August 1998, four IRT-3M FA with 36% enriched uranium were loaded into the core to initiate conversion of the entire core to 36% enriched fuel. This paper presents the results of equilibrium fuel cycle comparisons of the reactor using HEU (90%) and HEU (36%) IRT-3M fuel and compares results with the performance of IRT-4M FA containing LEU (19.75%). The results show that an LEU (19.75%) density of 3.8 g/cm{sup 3} is required to match the cycle length of the HEU (90%) core and an LEU density 3.9 g/cm{sup 3} is needed to match the cycle length of the HEU (36%) core.

Local Structural Investigation of SmFeAsO1?xFx High Temperature Superconductors  

SciTech Connect

A strong revitalization of the field of high temperature superconductivity (HTSC) has been induced recently by the discovery of T{sub C} around 26 K in F-doped LaFeAsO iron pnictides. Starting from this discovery, a huge amount of experimental data have been accumulated. This important corpus of results will allow the development of suitable theoretical models aimed at describing the basic electronic structure properties and nature of superconducting states in these fascinating new systems. A close correlation between structural features and physical properties of the normal and superconducting states has already been demonstrated in the current literature. Advanced theoretical models are also based on the close correlation with structural properties and in particular with the Fe-As tetrahedral array. As for other complex materials, a deeper understanding of their structure-properties correlation requires a full knowledge of the atomic arrangement within the structure. Here we report an investigation of the local structure in the SmFeAsO{sub 1-x}F{sub x} system carried out by means of x-ray total scattering measurements and pair distribution function analysis. The results presented indicate that the local structure of these HTSC significantly differs from the average structure determined by means of traditional diffraction techniques, in particular the distribution of Fe-As bond lengths. In addition, a model for describing the observed discrepancies is presented.

"Neutrino-4" experiment: preparations for search for sterile neutrino at 100 MW reactor SM-3 at 6-13 meters  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

There has been designed an experimental project "Neutrino-4" for 100 MW reactor SM-3 to test the hypothesis of the "reactor antineutrino anomaly". Advantages of the reactor SM-3 for such an experiment are low background conditions as well as small dimensions of a reactor core - 35x42x42 cm3. One has carried on the Monte-Carlo modeling of a position sensitive antineutrino detector consisting of 5 operation sections, which as a result of displacement, covers the distance from 6 to 13 meters from the reactor core. One has succeeded in obtaining an experimental area of sensitivity to oscillation parameters, which enables to verify the hypothesis of reactor antineutrino oscillations into a sterile state.

SciTech Connect

Superconducting thin films of SmFeAs(O,F) were prepared by molecular beam epitaxy on fluoride substrates. In our process, F-free SmFeAsO films were grown first, and F was subsequently introduced to the films by diffusion from an overlayer of SmF{sub 3}. By this simple process, record high T{sub c}, namely, T{sub c}{sup on} (T{sub c}{sup end}) = 57.8 K (56.4 K) was obtained in a film on CaF{sub 2}. Furthermore, the films on CaF{sub 2} showed high critical current density over 1 MA/cm{sup 2} in the self-field at 5 K. The correlation between superconductivity and epitaxial strain in SmFeAs(O,F) films is discussed.

(n,2n) and (n,3n) cross sections of neutron-induced reactions on 150Sm for En from threshold to 35 MeV  

SciTech Connect

Cross-section measurements were made of prompt discrete {gamma}-ray production as a function of incident neutron energy (E{sub n} = 1 to 35 MeV) on a {sup 150}Sm sample fo 1550 mg/cm{sup 2} of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3} enriched to 95.6% in {sup 150}Sm. Results are compared with enhanced Hauser-Feshbach model calculations including the pre-equilibrium reactions. Energetic neutrons were delivered by the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center facility. The prompt-reaction {gamma} rays were detected with the Compton-suppressed Germanium Array for Neutron Induced Excitations (GEANIE). Incident neutron energies were determined by the time-of-flight technique. Excitation functions for thirteen individual {gamma}-rays up to E{sub x} = 0.8 MeV in {sup 149}Sm and one {gamma}-ray transition between the first excited and ground state in {sup 148}Sm were measured. Partial {gamma}-ray cross sections were calculated using GNASH, an enhanced Hauser-Feshbach statistical nuclear reaction model code, and compared with the experimental results. The particle transmission coefficients were calculated with new systematic 'global' optical model potential parameters. The coupled-channel optical model based on the soft rotor model was employed to calculate the particle transmission coefficients. The pre-equilibrium part of the spin distribution in {sup 150}Sm was calculated using the quantum mechanical theory of Feshbach, Kerman, and Koonin (FKK) and incorporated into the GNASH reaction model code. the partial cross sections for discrete {gamma}-ray cascade paths leading to the ground state in {sup 149}Sm and {sup 148}Sm have been summed (without double counting) to estimate lower limits for reaction cross sections. These lower limits are combined with Hauser-Feshbach model calculations to deduce the reaction channel cross sections. These reaction channel cross sections agree with previously measured experimental and ENDF/B-VII evaluations.

THE EFFECT OF THE {sup 14}N(p, {gamma}){sup 15}O REACTION ON THE BLUE LOOPS IN INTERMEDIATE-MASS STARS  

SciTech Connect

We present stellar evolutionary sequences of stars in the mass range 5-12 M{sub Sun }, having solar-like initial composition. The stellar models are obtained using updated input physics, including recent rates of thermonuclear reactions. We investigate the effects of a modification of the {sup 14}N(p, {gamma}){sup 15}O reaction rate, as suggested by recent evaluations, on the formation and extension of the blue loops encountered during the evolution of the stars in the above mass range. We find that a reduced {sup 14}N(p, {gamma}){sup 15}O rate, as described in the text, has a striking impact on the physical conditions of burning and mixing during shell hydrogen burning when the blue loops are formed. In particular, we find that the efficiency of shell hydrogen burning is crucial for the formation of an extended blue loop. We show that a significantly reduced {sup 14}N(p, {gamma}){sup 15}O rate affects severely the extension of the blue loops and the time spent by the star in the blue part of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram in the mass range 5-7 M{sub Sun} if the treatment of convection is based on the Schwarzschild criterion only. In this case, envelope overshooting helps to restore well-extended blue loops as supported by the observations of the Cepheid stars. If core overshooting is included during the core hydrogen and core helium burning phases, the loop formation and its properties depend on how this overshooting is treated for a given stellar mass range, as well as on its efficiency.

A measurement of. Delta. sigma. sub L (np), the difference between neutron-proton total cross sections in pure longitudinal spin states  

SciTech Connect

A measurement off {Delta}{sigma}{sub L}(np), the difference between neutron-proton total cross sections in pure longitudinal spin states, is described. The results will help determine the isospin-zero (I = 0) scattering amplitudes, which are not well known above laboratory energies of 500 MeV, whereas the isospin-one (I = 1) amplitudes are fairly well-determined to 1 GeV. Data points were taken at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF) at Los Alamos, New Mexico, for five neutron beam energies: 484, 568, 634,720 and 788 MeV; they are the first in this energy range. Polarized neutrons were produced by charge-exchange of polarized protons on a liquid deuterium target (LD{sub 2}). Large-volume neutron counters detected the neutrons that passed through a polarized proton target. The counters subtended a range of solid angles large enough to allow extrapolation of the scattered neutrons to 0{degree}. Two modifications to the LAMPF accelerator system which were made for this work are described. They included a beam buncher,'' which modified the normal rf-time structure of the proton beam and allowed for the selection of peak-energy neutrons by time-of-flight means, and a computerized beam steering program, which reduced systematic effects due to beam motion at the LD{sub 2} target. The experimental values of {Delta}{sigma}{sub L}(np) are found to be consistent with other np data, including preliminary data from SIN and Saclay, but not with some results from Argonne which used a polarized proton beam and a polarized deuteron target. The I = 0 component was extracted from {Delta}{sigma}{sub L}(np) using existing pp data (I = 1), with the unexpected result that {Delta}{sigma}{sub L}(I = 0) was found to be essentially identical in shape to {Delta}{sigma}{sub L}(I = 1). The significance of this is not yet understood.

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.

Breakup Reactions and Exclusive Measurements in the {sup 6,7}Li+{sup 144}Sm Systems  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

A high temperature neutron diffraction study of the double perovskite Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6}  

SciTech Connect

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.

HETEROGENEOUS ISOTOPIC ANOMALIES OF SM AND GD IN THE NORTON COUNTY METEORITE: EVIDENCE FOR IRRADIATION FROM THE ACTIVE EARLY SUN  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Large and heterogeneous isotopic variations of {sup 150}Sm/{sup 149}Sm and {sup 158}Gd/{sup 157}Gd due to neutron capture reactions caused by cosmic-ray irradiation were found in chemical and mineral separates from the Norton County meteorite. The light-colored separates, consisting mainly of enstatite (Mg{sub 2}Si{sub 2}O{sub 6}), have a very large neutron fluence of 1.98 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 17} n cm{sup -2}, which is 10 times higher than that of the whole rock. Furthermore, four chemical separates showed a large variation in neutron fluences, ranging from 1.82 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 16} to 1.87 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 17} n cm{sup -2}. The variable amounts of neutron fluences from a small single fragment of the Norton County meteorite cannot be simply explained by single-stage cosmic-ray irradiation in space. Rare earth element (REE) analyses revealed that the fractions with high neutron fluences have similar chemical properties to those in the early condensates in the solar system, showing depletions of Eu and Yb in their REE abundance patterns. The data provide evidence for an activity of the early Sun (T Tauri), suggesting the migration of early and intense irradiation materials into the Norton County meteorite's parent body.

Pre-Conceptual Design of a Fluoride-Salt-Cooled Small Modular Advanced High Temperature Reactor (SmAHTR)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This document presents the results of a study conducted at Oak Ridge National Laboratory during 2010 to explore the feasibility of small modular fluoride salt-cooled high temperature reactors (FHRs). A preliminary reactor system concept, SmATHR (for Small modular Advanced High Temperature Reactor) is described, along with an integrated high-temperature thermal energy storage or salt vault system. The SmAHTR is a 125 MWt, integral primary, liquid salt cooled, coated particle-graphite fueled, low-pressure system operating at 700 C. The system employs passive decay heat removal and two-out-of-three , 50% capacity, subsystem redundancy for critical functions. The reactor vessel is sufficiently small to be transportable on standard commercial tractor-trailer transport vehicles. Initial transient analyses indicated the transition from normal reactor operations to passive decay heat removal is accomplished in a manner that preserves robust safety margins at all times during the transient. Numerous trade studies and trade-space considerations are discussed, along with the resultant initial system concept. The current concept is not optimized. Work remains to more completely define the overall system with particular emphasis on refining the final fuel/core configuration, salt vault configuration, and integrated system dynamics and safety behavior.

Astrophysical S(E) factor of the (15)N(p, alpha)(12)C reaction at sub-Coulomb energies via the Trojan horse method  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The low-energy bare-nucleus cross section for (15)N(p, alpha)(12)C is extracted by means of the Trojan horse method applied to the (2)H((15)N,alpha(12)C)n reaction at E(beam) = 60 MeV. For the first time we applied the modified half-off-energy-shell resonant R-matrix method that takes into account off-energy-shell effects and initial- and final-state interactions. In particular it has been shown that inclusion of Coulomb (15)N-d scattering and off-shell effects do not affect the determination of the astrophysical factor. Also the simple plane-wave approximation used in previous analyses is justified. The results extracted via the Trojan horse method are compared to direct data in the same energy region and show very good agreement in the energy interval 70-312 keV. These results confirm the extrapolations of the S factor reported in literature.

Real-Space Microscopic Electrical Imaging of n+-p Junction Beneath Front-Side Ag Contact of Multicrystalline Si Solar Cells  

SciTech Connect

We investigated the quality of the n+-p diffused junction beneath the front-side Ag contact of multicrystalline Si solar cells by characterizing the uniformities of electrostatic potential and doping concentration across the junction using the atomic force microscopy-based electrical imaging techniques of scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy and scanning capacitance microscopy. We found that Ag screen-printing metallization fired at the over-fire temperature significantly degrades the junction uniformity beneath the Ag contact grid, whereas metallization at the optimal- and under-fire temperatures does not cause degradation. Ag crystallites with widely distributed sizes were found at the Ag-grid/emitter-Si interface of the over-fired cell, which is associated with the junction damage beneath the Ag grid. Large crystallites protrude into Si deeper than the junction depth. However, the junction was not broken down; instead, it was reformed on the entire front of the crystallite/Si interface. We propose a mechanism of junction-quality degradation, based on emitter Si melting at the temperature around the Ag-Si eutectic point during firing, and subsequent re-crystallization with incorporation of Ag and other impurities and with formation of crystallographic defects during quenching. The effect of this junction damage on solar cell performance is discussed.

Transient analyses for the Uzbekistan VVR-SM reactor with IRT-3M HEU fuel and IRT-4M LEU fuel : ANL independent verification results.  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Calculations have been performed for postulated transients in the VVR-SM Reactor at the Institute of Nuclear Physics (INP) of the Academy of Sciences in the Republic of Uzbekistan. (The reactor designation in Cyrillic is BBP-CM; transliterating characters to English gives VVRSM but translating words gives WWR-SM.) These calculations have been performed at the request of staff of the INP who are performing similar calculations. The transients considered were established during working meetings between Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and INP staff during summer 2006 [Ref. 1], subsequent email correspondence, and subsequent staff visits. Calculations were performed for the current high-enriched uranium (HEU) core, the proposed low-enriched uranium (LEU) core, and one mixed HEU-LEU core during the transition. These calculations have been performed independently from those being performed by INP and serve as one step in the verification process.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

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.

Theoretical analyses of (n,xn) reactions on sup 235 U, sup 238 U, sup 237 Np, and sup 239 Pu for ENDF/B-VI  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Theoretical analyses were performed of neutron-induced reactions on {sup 235}U, {sup 238}U, {sup 237}Np, and {sup 239}Pu between 0.01 and 20 MeV in order to calculate neutron emission cross sections and spectra for ENDF/B-VI evaluations. Coupled-channel optical model potentials were obtained for each target nucleus by fitting total, elastic, and inelastic scattering cross section data, as well as low-energy average resonance data. The resulting deformed optical model potentials were used to calculate direct (n,n{prime}) cross sections and transmission coefficients for use in Hauser-Feshbach statistical theory analyses. A fission model with multiple barrier representation, width fluctuation corrections, and preequilibrium corrections were included in the analyses. Direct cross sections for higher-lying vibrational states were calculated using DWBA theory, normalized using B(E{ell}) values determined from (d,d{prime}) and Coulomb excitation data, where available, and from systematics otherwise. Initial fission barrier parameters and transition state density enhancements appropriate to the compound systems involved were obtained from previous analyses, especially fits to charged-particle fission probability data. The parameters for the fission model were adjusted for each target system to obtain optimum agreement with direct (n,f) cross section measurements, taking account of the various multichance fission channels, that is, the different compound systems involved. The results from these analyses were used to calculate most of the neutron (n,n), (n,n{prime}), and (n,xn) cross section data in the ENDF/B/VI evaluations for the above nuclei, and all of the energy-angle correlated spectra. The deformed optical model and fission model parameterizations are described. Comparisons are given between the results of these analyses and the previous ENDF/B-V evaluations as well as with the available experimental data. 14 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.

Substantial anisotropy of the thermal expansion behavior was observed in their crystal structures with thermal expansion coefficients (TEC) along a- and c-axis changing from TEC(a)/TEC(c){approx}1.37 (Pr) to 0.89 (Nd) and 0.72 (Sm). Temperature dependence of the interatomic distances in Ln{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} shows significantly lower expansion rate of the chemical bond between Pr and oxygen atoms (O1) belonging to CuO{sub 2}-planes (TEC(Pr-O1)=11.7 ppm K{sup -1}) in comparison with other cuprates: TEC (Nd-O1)=15.2 ppm K{sup -1} and TEC (Sm-O1)=15.1 ppm K{sup -1}. High-temperature electrical conductivity of Pr{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} is the highest one in the whole studied temperature range (298-1173 K): 0.1-108 S/cm for Pr{sub 2}CuO{sub 4}, 0.07-23 S/cm for Nd{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} and 2x10{sup -4}-9 S/cm for Sm{sub 2}CuO{sub 4}.

Changes in the photocatalytic activity with the calcination temperature of Sm{sub 2}InTaO{sub 7} and the amount of NiOx loaded indicated that the combination of highly crystallized Sm{sub 2}InTaO{sub 7} and a high dispersion of NiOx particles led to high photocatalytic activity. The high photocatalytic performance of NiOx-loaded Sm{sub 2}InTaO{sub 7} supported the existing view that the photocatalytic activity correlated with the lattice distortion. Density functional theory calculation indicated that strong dispersion from the hybridized In 5s 5p orbitals at the bottom of the conduction band was responsible for the high activity of photocatalyst Sm{sub 2}InTaO{sub 7}. - Graphical abstract: A new visible-light-response photocatalyst Sm{sub 2}InTaO{sub 7} with 4f-d{sup 10}-d{sup 0} configuration was developed.

LOW-INTENSITY CONVERSION LINES FROM Sm$sup 151$ AND Sn$sup 11$$sup 3$  

SciTech Connect

The electron spectrum of Sm/sup 151/ has been measured with a lens spectrometer and its gamma-ray spectrum with a scintillation spectrometer. The L- conversion coefficient of the 21.7 plus or minus 0.3 kev de-excitation of the first excited state of Eu/sup 151/ is 20 plus or minus 4, with ( alpha /sub L// alpha /sub M+N/) = 2.2 plus or minus 0.4 and alpha /sub M// alpha /sub N/ = 2.2 plus or minus 0.2 indicating M1 multipolarity. The low intensity of the conversion electrons relative to the continuous beta spectrum of end point 75.9 plus or minus 0.6 kev implies the existence of a weak beta transition whose and point is 54.2 plus or minus 0.7 kev. The beta branching ratio, 54.2-kev beta transitions/75. 9-kev beta transitions, is 1.7/100. Log/sub 10/ft values for the two beta decays are 7.6 plus or minus 0.2 for the 75.9-kev decay and 8.8 plus or minus 0.2 for ths 54.2-kev decay. A partial analysis of the decay in terms of the Nilsson-Gottfried scheme hss been made, but no definitive sssignment for the 21.7-kev state appears to be possible. Measurements of the electron spectrum of Sn/sup 113/ with the lens spectrometer reveal the eastence of a weak conversion line corresponding to a transition of 253 kev. The intensity of this conversion line is (2.8 plus or minus 1.0) x 10/sup -3/ of the intensity of the conversion line from the 392-kev transition, This relative conversion electron intensity indicates that the 253-kev transition leads to the 392-kev state of In/ sup 113/ implying the eastence of an excited state at 645 kev. The existing uncertainty in the relative gamma-ray intensities for the two transitions makes it impossible to assign spin and parity to the 645-kev state; the decay scheme presented is therefore incomplete.

Electron Doping by Charge Transfer at LaFeO 3 /Sm 2 CuO 4 Epitaxial Interfaces  

SciTech Connect

The breakdown of the lattice translational invariance symmetry that occurs at complex oxide interfaces may profoundly modify their electronic structure, leading to interfacial states with properties drastically different from those of the superlattice individual components. The appearance of a conducting two dimensional (2D) electron gas at the interface between two insulating oxides and induced magnetism in a non-magnetic material are just two among many fascinating examples. [ 1 8 ] One of the key factors underlying novel properties is the modifi cation of the doping and orbital occupancy near those interfaces, which may result from charge transfer processes. [ 3 , 9 11 ] If materials used in heterostructures have different work functions, a non-equilibrium situation will be created at the interface and charge will be transferred until the chemical potential levels off. [ 12 ] The use of such phenomena to modify doping in heterostructures has been proposed theoretically as a new route to avoid the quenched disorder that inevitably accompanies the chemical doping. At the interface between a Mott insulating parent compound of the high critical temperature superconductor (HTSC) family and a suitable material that would act as the charge donor, electron doped phases could be stabilized which would eventually turn metallic and perhaps superconducting. [ 12 , 13 ] Such charge transfer processes have been observed at interfaces involving copper oxides such as La 0.7 Ca 0.3 MnO 3 / YBa 2 Cu 3 O 7 , [ 14 ] La 2 x Sr x CuO 4 /La 2 CuO 4 [ 15 ] and SrTi 1 x Nb x O 3 / Sm 2 CuO 4 . [ 16 ] While a novel 2D superconducting state was found at the La 2-x Sr x CuO 4 /La 2 CuO 4 interface, [ 17 ] the effect of doping by charge transfer could not be examined in the other two cases due to the detrimental effect on the YBa 2 Cu 3 O 7 superconductivity of the spin polarized electrons from La 0.7 Ca 0.3 MnO 3 in one case and due to the conducting nature of the SrTi 1 x Nb x O 3 in the other case, which obscures changes in the conducting properties of the interface layer.

Photoionization thresholds of rare-earth impurity ions. EuS :CaF2, CeT :YAG, and SmS :CaF2  

SciTech Connect

The spectral dependence of the photoionization energy of EuS :CaF2, CeT :YAG, and SmS :CaF2 systems have been measured and thresholds experimentally determined and compared with theoretical values calculated from electrostatic models. It is shown that the excited state absorption transitions or the persistent hole burning observed by other authors occur above the threshold energy of photoionization of the impurities and that the states of the crystal which form the bottom of the conduction band may play an important role in the strong probability of these processes. A review of thresholds now known is also given.

Spectra of optical parameters in bulk and film amorphous alloys of the Se{sub 95}As{sub 5} system containing samarium (Sm) impurities  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Reflectance spectra of bulk and film amorphous alloys of the Se{sub 95}As{sub 5} system containing samarium (Sm) impurities are studied in the energy range of 1-6 eV. Spectral dependences of optical constants and derivatives of optical dielectric functions are calculated by the Kramers-Kronig method. Changes in spectra of optical parameters depending on the content of impurities introduced into Se{sub 95}As{sub 5} and conditions of their preparation are explained based on the cluster model. According to the latter, changes in the electron density of states depends on changes in atomic configurations in clusters, i.e., short-range order changes.

The X-ray diffraction of the sample at room temperature shows a monoclinic phase. The scanning micrograph of the sample shows the average grain size{approx_equal}0.6{mu}m The field dependence of dielectric response and the loss tangent of the sample are measured in a frequency range from 100Hz to 1MHz and in a temperature range from 313 K to 673 K. An analysis of the real and imaginary parts of the dielectric permittivity with frequency is performed, assuming a distribution of relaxation times as confirmed by Cole-Cole plots. The frequency dependent electrical data are analyzed in the framework of conductivity formalism. The frequency dependent conductivity data are fitted to the universal power law. All these formalisms provided for qualitative similarities in the relaxation times.

Quantitative LEED I-V and ab initio study of the Si(111)-3x2-Sm surface structure and the missing half-order spots in the 3x1 diffraction pattern  

SciTech Connect

We have used low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) I-V analysis and ab initio calculations to quantitatively determine the honeycomb chain model structure for the Si(111)-3x2-Sm surface. This structure and a similar 3x1 recontruction have been observed for many alkali-earth and rare-earth metals on the Si(111) surface. Our ab initio calculations show that there are two almost degenerate sites for the Sm atom in the unit cell, and the LEED I-V analysis reveals that an admixture of the two in a ratio that slightly favors the site with the lower energy is the best match to experiment. We show that the I-V curves are insensitive to the presence of the Sm atom and that this results in a very low intensity for the half-order spots, which might explain the appearance of a 3x1 LEED pattern produced by all of the structures with a 3x2 unit cell.

Correlation between electrical properties and thermodynamic stability of ACoO{sub 3-{delta}} perovskites (A= La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd)  

SciTech Connect

For perovskites with the general formula ACoO{sub 3-{delta}} (A = La, Pr, Nd, Sm, and Gd) the influence of the A-site cation on the electrical conductivity, electronic structure, thermodynamic stability, and oxygen stoichiometry was studied. The perovskite oxide powders were produced by a combined citric acid and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid complexing method. Ceramic specimens sintered at 1100 deg. C in air were single-phase perovskites. With increasing temperature, the electrical conductivity shows three discrete regimes. All compositions show semiconductivity up to a transition temperature of {approx}300 deg. C-450 deg. C and then behave like metallic conductors. The activation energies for the semiconductivity, as well as the transition temperatures to the metallic-like conduction, decrease monotonically with increasing pseudocubic lattice parameters, i.e., with increasing ionic radii of the A cation. This behavior correlates with decreasing oxygen nonstoichiometry and increased thermodynamic stability. The highest conductivity and the lowest activation energy of 0.66 eV were found for LaCoO{sub 3-{delta},} which also had the lowest semiconductor-metal transition temperature at 269 deg. C, the lowest oxygen nonstoichiometry of {delta}= 0.008, and the highest Gibbs free energy change for the decomposition reaction of 42.37 kJ/mol at 850 deg. C. GdCoO{sub 3-{delta}} had the highest oxygen nonstoichiometry with {delta}0.032, a high activation energy of 1.19 eV for the semiconductivity with a high transition temperature at 452 deg. C, and the lowest Gibbs free energy change of 26.54 kJ/mol at 850 deg. C. X-ray absorption spectroscopy data imply an increasing Co low-spin character with decreasing cation radius from La to Gd, while an increase in temperature increases the number of holes or Co 3d bandwidth. This correlates well with the electrical conductivity data.

We study the production of radioisotopes for nuclear medicine in (gamma,gamma') photoexcitation reactions or (gamma,xn + yp) photonuclear reactions for the examples of ^195mPt, ^117mSn and ^44Ti with high flux [(10^13 - 10^15) gamma/s], small beam diameter and small energy band width (Delta E/E ~ 10^-3 -10^-4) gamma beams. In order to realize an optimum gamma-focal spot, a refractive gamma-lens consisting of a stack of many concave micro-lenses will be used. It allows for the production of a high specific activity and the use of enriched isotopes. For photonuclear reactions with a narrow gamma beam, the energy deposition in the target can be reduced by using a stack of thin target wires, hence avoiding direct stopping of the Compton electrons and e^+e^- pairs. The well-defined initial excitation energy of the compound nucleus leads to a small number of reaction channels and enables new combinations of target isotope and final radioisotope. The narrow-bandwidth gamma excitation may make use of collective resonances in gamma-width, leading to increased cross sections. (gamma,gamma') isomer production via specially selected gamma cascades allows to produce high specific activity in multiple excitations, where no back-pumping of the isomer to the ground state occurs. The produced isotopes will open the way for completely new clinical applications of radioisotopes. For example ^195mPt could be used to verify the patient's response to chemotherapy with platinum compounds before a complete treatment is performed. In targeted radionuclide therapy the short-range Auger and conversion electrons of ^195mPt and ^117mSn enable a very local treatment. The generator ^44Ti allows for a PET with an additional gamma-quantum (gamma-PET), resulting in a reduced dose or better spatial resolution.

Growth conditions, structure, Raman characterization and optical properties of Sm-doped (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 1-x}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} single crystals grown by the Czochralski method  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 0.995-x}Sm{sub 0.005}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} single crystals with x=0.095, 0.11, 0.15, 0.17, 0.19 0.35 and 0.5 were grown by the Czochralski method. Structural properties were investigated by X-ray diffraction measurements. Unit cell parameters and cell volume were determined by the Rietveld refinement of the collected X-ray powder spectra. The segregation features between Gd and Lu were estimated and analyzed. Vibrational properties of the solid solutions were analyzed on the basis of polarized Raman spectra acquired at 300-875 K temperature range. Absorption and emission spectra of Sm{sup 3+} ion in the crystals with different composition were analyzed in the terms of dopant energy levels, oscillator strengths of transitions and spectral features of luminescence bands in the visible range. Both structural and optical investigations revealed that change of Lu{sup 3+} content in (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 0.995-x}Sm{sub 0.005}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} solid solution crystals induces the phase transition from C2/c (Lu{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}) to P2{sub 1}/c (Gd{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}) structure. It was found that the break of LSO to GSO-type structure occurs at 0.15Sm{sup 3+}-doped (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 1-x}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} solid solutions have been grown by Czochralski method and characterized by various techniques.

Eleven new compounds in the RE-Cd-Ge systems (RE=Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd-Yb; Y): Crystal chemistry of the RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} series  

SciTech Connect

A large new family of rare-earth metal-cadmium-germanides RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} (RE=Y, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd-Yb) has been synthesized and structurally characterized. All eleven structures have been established from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data and have been found to belong to the tetragonal Mo{sub 2}FeB{sub 2} structure type (ordered ternary variant of the U{sub 3}Si{sub 2} structure type-space group P4/mbm (No. 127), Z=2; Pearson symbol tP10). The structural variations among the three series of isostructural RE{sub 2}MgGe{sub 2}, RE{sub 2}InGe{sub 2}, and RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} compounds are discussed, as well as the crystal chemistry changes as a function of the decreasing size of the rare-earth metals (lattice constants a=7.176(2)-7.4589(12) A and c=4.1273(14)-4.4356(13) A). The experimental results have been complemented by tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital (TB-LMTO) electronic structure calculations. - Graphical abstract: More than 300 compounds have been reported to crystallize with the tetragonal U{sub 3}Si{sub 2} structure type, or the Mo{sub 2}FeB{sub 2} structure type, which is its ordered ternary variant. Among them, there are several large RE{sub 2}CdX{sub 2} classes, where the X-elements are typically late transition metals such as Cu, Ni, Au, Pd, Pt, and Rh. The new RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} phases (RE=Y, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd-Yb) increase the diversity and represent the first cadmium germanides. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} (RE=Y, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd-Yb) are new ternary germanides. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Their structures can be recognized as a 1:1 intergrowth of CsCl- and AlB{sub 2}-like slabs. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The Ge atoms are covalently bound into Ge{sub 2} dumbbells. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Almost all RE{sub 2}CdGe{sub 2} phases are the first structurally characterized phases in the respective ternary RE-Cd-Ge systems.

Results of transient /accident analysis for the HEU, first mixed HEU-LEU and for the first full LEU cores of the WWR-SM reactor at INP AS RUZ  

SciTech Connect

The WWR-SM reactor in Uzbekistan is preparing for the conversion from HEU (36%) fuel to LEU (19.8%) fuel. During this conversion, the HEU fuel assemblies (IRT-3M FA) being discharged at the end of each cycle will be replaced by LEU fuel assemblies (IRT-4M FA); this gradual conversion requires 9 cycles. The safety analysis report for this conversion process has been prepared. This paper presents selected results for postulated transient/accidents during this conversion process; results for transient analysis for the HEU core, the 1st mixed (HEU-LEU) core, and for the first full LEU core are presented for the following initiators: control rod motion (2 cases), loss of power, and FA blockage. These results show that safety is maintained for all transients analyzed and that the behavior of all the analyzed cores is essentially the same. (author)

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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.

Hydrogen in polar intermetallics: Syntheses and structures of the ternary Ca5Bi3D0.93, Yb5Bi3Hx, and Sm5Bi3H~1 by powder neutron or single crystal X-ray diffraction  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The syntheses of the title compounds are described in detail. Structural characterizations from refinements of single crystal X-ray diffraction data for Yb{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub x} and Sm{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub 1} and of powder neutron diffraction data for Ca{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}D{sub 0.93(3)} are reported. These confirm that all three crystallize with the heavy atom structure type of {beta}-Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}, and the third gives the first proof that the deuterium lies in the center of nominal calcium tetrahedra, isostructural with the Ca{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}F-type structure. These Ca and Yb phases are particularly stable with respect to dissociation to Mn{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-type product plus H{sub 2}. Some contradictions in the literature regarding Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3} and Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}H{sub x} phases are considered in terms of adventitious hydrogen impurities that are generated during reactions in fused silica containers at elevated temperatures.

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The crystal structures of the new ternary compounds Sm{sub 4}Ir{sub 13}Ge{sub 9} and LaIr{sub 3}Ge{sub 2} were determined and refined on the basis of single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. They belong to the Ho{sub 4}Ir{sub 13}Ge{sub 9} (oP52, Pmmn) and CeCo{sub 3}B{sub 2} (hP5, P6/mmm) structure types, respectively. The formation of isotypic compounds R{sub 4}Ir{sub 13}Ge{sub 9} with R=La, Ce, Pr, Nd, and RIr{sub 3}Ge{sub 2} with R=Ce, Pr, Nd, was established by powder X-ray diffraction.

The SM and NLO Multileg Working Group: Summary Report  

SciTech Connect

After years of waiting, and after six Les Houches workshops, the era of LHC running is finally upon us, albeit at a lower initial center-of-mass energy than originally planned. Thus, there has been a great sense of anticipation from both the experimental and theoretical communities. The last two years, in particular, have seen great productivity in the area of multi-parton calculations at leading order (LO), next-to-leading order (NLO) and next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO), and this productivity is reflected in the proceedings of the NLM group. Both religions, Feynmanians and Unitarians, as well as agnostic experimenters, were well-represented in both the discussions at Les Houches, and in the contributions to the write-up. Next-to-leading order (NLO) is the first order at which the normalization, and in some cases the shape, of perturbative cross sections can be considered reliable. This can be especially true when probing extreme kinematic regions, as for example with boosted Higgs searches considered in several of the contributions to this writeup. A full understanding for both standard model and beyond the standard model physics at the LHC requires the development of fast, reliable programs for the calculation of multi-parton final states at NLO. There have been many advances in the development of NLO techniques, standardization and automation for such processes and this is reflected in the contributions to the first section of this writeup. Many calculations have previously been performed with the aid of semi-numerical techniques. Such techniques, although retaining the desired accuracy, lead to codes which are slow to run. Advances in the calculation of compact analytic expressions for Higgs + 2 jets have resulted in the development of much faster codes, which extend the phenomenology that can be conducted, as well as making the code available to the public for the first time. A prioritized list of NLO cross sections was assembled at Les Houches in 2005 and added to in 2007. This list includes cross sections which are experimentally important, and which are theoretically feasible (if difficult) to calculate. Basically all 2-3 cross sections of interest have been calculated, with the frontier now extending to 2 {yields} 4 calculations. Often these calculations exist only as private codes. Since 2007, two additional calculations have been completed: t{bar t}b{bar b} and W+3 jets, reflecting the advance of the NLO technology to 2 {yields} 4 processes. In addition, the cross section for b{bar b}b{bar b} has been calculated for the q{bar q} initial state with the gg initial state calculation in progress. Final states of such complexity usually lead to multi-scale problems, and the correct choice of scales to use can be problematic not only at LO, but also at NLO. The size of the higher order corrections and of the residual scale dependence at NLOcan depend strongly on whether the considered cross section is inclusive, or whether a jet veto cut has been applied. Depending on the process, dramatically different behavior can be observed upon the application of a jet veto. There is a trade-off between suppressing the NLO cross section and increasing the perturbative uncertainty, with application of a jet veto sometimes destroying the cancellation between infra-red logs of real and virtual origin, and sometimes just suppressing large (and very scale-sensitive) tree-level contributions. So far, there is no general rule predicting the type of behavior to be expected, but this is an important matter for further investigation. From the experimental side, an addition to the above wish-list that will be crucial is the determination of the accuracy to which each of the calculations needs to be known. This is clearly related to the experimental accuracy at which the cross sections can be measured at the LHC, and can determine, for example, for what processes it may be necessary to calculate electo-weak corrections, in addition to the higher order QCD corrections. On the theoretical side, it would also be interesting to categorize

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

An Introduction to Architectural Surety(SM) Education  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This report describes the Sandia activities in the developing field management approach to enhancing National Laboratories (Sandia) educational outreach of architectural and infrastructure surety, a risk the safety, security, and reliability of facilities, systems, and structures. It begins with a description of the field of architectural and infrastmcture surety, including Sandia's historical expertise and experience in nuclear weapons surety. An overview of the 1996 Sandia Workshop on Architectural SuretysM is then provided to reference the initiation of the various activities. This workshop established the need for a surety education program at the University level and recommended that Sandia develop the course material as soon as possible. Technical material was assembled and the course was offered at the University of New Mexico (UNM) during the 1997 spring semester. The bulk of this report accordingly summarizes the lecture material presented in this pioneering graduate-level course on Infrastructure Surety in the Civil Engineering Department at UNM. This groundbreaking class presented subject matter developed by experts from Sandia, and included additional information from guest lecturers from academia, government, and industry. Also included in this report are summaries of the term projects developed by the graduate students, an overview of the 1997 International Conference on Architectural Suretp: Assuring the Performance of Buildings and Injiastruchwes (co-sponsored by Sandia, the American Institute of Architects, and the American Society of Civil Engineers), and recommendations for further course work development. The U.S. Department of Energy provides support to this emerging field of architectural and infrastructure surety and recognizes its broad application to developing government, industry, and professional standards in the national interest.

Curriculum development of a wildlife habitat gardening Golden Ray Series [sm] for the Junior Master Gardener [sm] Program  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Development of the Backyard Buddies Golden Ray Series curriculum for the Junior Master Gardener Program is a labor-intensive and ongoing project requiring consideration of numerous factors relating not only to the habitat gardening subject matter of the curriculum but to educational, economic, political, and other concerns as well. This paper summarizes the steps in the development of this curriculum. A first necessary step in developing the Backyard Buddies curriculum was understanding the Junior Master Gardener Program for which it was intended. JMG began as a 4-H gardening program in Texas and has since spread to 25 states and 2 countries. The program stresses "hands-on" learning in an effort to make the program fun for participants. JMG curricula are also oriented toward "whole-child" education, where both emotional and intellectual fulfillment are goals. JMG groups can consist of anyone, needing only an adult leader and a minimum of 5 youth participants. The only other requirement for a JMG group is that they register their group through the Texas Agricultural Extension Service and that they buy the necessary curriculum materials. However while anyone can form a JMG group and while the curriculum is applicable to groups of any kind, the curriculum is geared toward the needs of schools in an effort to gain a wider participation in the program. For this reason, JMG curriculum is typically designed to fulfil the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements for schools. Likewise, JMG curricula are also often designed to be compatible with the materials typically found on standardized tests like the TAAS test. A Golden Ray Series, such as Backyard Buddies, is an outgrowth of JMG'S basic curriculum. Each Golden Ray Series focuses upon a specific concern related to gardening. A previous GRS, for instance, dealt with Health and Nutrition in the Garden while Backyard Buddies focuses specifically upon habitat gardening. In developing the Backyard Buddies curriculum, JMG guidelines had to be followed while also developing a curriculum that would teach youth how to create and maintain a habitat garden. Because the final goal of this curriculum was to give learners an understanding of how to attract wildlife to a garden and to instill an appreciation of wildlife in learners, a Backwards Design approach to curriculum development was used. Finally, basic research had to be conducted in order to insure that all activities were factually-accurate as well as age-appropriate. Beginning with lessons on what habitats are, Backyard Buddies first section guarantees that learners have the necessary vocabulary and the necessary scientific understanding of wildlife needs to begin a habitat garden. This basic education continues with the next section on elements, such as food, water, and shelter, that are essential to the survival of wildlife in a garden setting. Following these sections come sections on birds, mammals, insects, and reptiles/amphibians. These sections deal with specific needs and concerns relating to habitat gardening and these particular animal groups. Next comes a problem-solving section in which learners deal with potential problems related to wildlife habitat gardening. Finally, the concluding section consists of life skill and career exploration lessons related to habitat gardening. The Backyard Buddies curriculum is currently awaiting review. Following review and any necessary revisions, the curriculum will be pilot tested and, again, will undergo any necessary revisions. Then, artwork, graphics, and layout will be designed prior to the curriculum's publication and implementation.

Fast solution of NP-hard coloring problems on large random graphs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Combining tree decomposition and transfer matrix techniques provides a highly efficient and very general algorithm for computing exact partition functions of statistical models defined on large graphs. We illustrate this by considering the hard problem of computing the exact number of vertex colorings for randomly generated planar graphs with up to N = 100 vertices.

Kootenai River Nutrient Dosing System and N-P Consumption: Year 2008.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

In early 2006 we designed and built low energy consumption, pump-operated system, for dosing of the liquid nutrient in the summer 2006 season. This operated successfully, and the system was used again during the 2007 and 2008 seasons for dosing. During the early winter period, 2008, laboratory tests were made of the liquid nutrient pump system, and it was noted that small amounts of air were being entrained on the suction side of the pump, during conditions when the inlet pressure was low. It was believed that this was the cause of diurnal fluctuations in the flow supplied, characteristic of the 2007 year flow data. Replacement of '0' rings on the inlet side of the pumps was the solution to this problem, and when tested in the field during the summer season, the flow supplied was found to be stable. A decision was made by the IKERT committee at the meeting of 20th to 21st May 2008 (held in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho) to use an injection flow rate of liquid fertilizer (polyammonium phosphate 10-34-0) to achieve a target phosphorus concentration of 3.0 {micro}g/L, after complete mixing in the river. This target concentration was the same as that used in 2006 and 2007. The proposed starting date was as early as possible in June 2008. Plans were made to measure the dosing flow in three ways. Two of the three methods of flow measurement (1 and 2 below) are inter-dependent. These were: (1) Direct measurement of flow rate by diverting dosing flow into a 1000 mL volume standard flask. The flow rate was computed by dividing the flask volume by the time required to fill the flask. This was done a few times only during the summer period. (2) Adjusting the flow rate reading of the Gamma dosing pump using the 'calibration' function to achieve agreement with the flow rate computed by method 1 above. (3) Direct measurement by electrical signal from conductive fluid passing through a magnetic field (Seametrics meter, as used in previous years). Values were recorded every 4 minutes by a data-logger. This instrument has been shown to be reliable, and in agreement with method 1 to within the expected uncertainty (within 2%). Liquid nutrients were delivered to the site in late May, and system testing was done the same day. High concentrations of suspended sediment in the water column, as indicated by shallow Secchi depth readings, were present in the river in the last part of May, into June. A plan was made to delay the start up of nutrient addition to a date later than 1st June, because the aquatic productivity was almost certainly to be compromised by insufficient light availability. Daily monitoring of Secchi depths was done, showing declining turbidity in early June. A decision was made to start the system on 15th June, by which time conditions were good.

Author manuscript, published in "N/P" Set Manipulations of Fractal Objects Using Matrices of IFS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

ABSTRACT. One of the major problems in geometric modeling is the control of shape construction. Indeed, one should be able to construct geometrical forms by combining or manipulating simple entities. This problem is even more important when we deal with fractal geometry. In this paper, we propose some methods for increasing the modeling capabilities of fractal shape constructions. We propose an extension of the IFS model based on the definition of matrices of IFS that provides a constructive approach of fractal shapes. KEY WORDS.

Quantitative NDA Measurements of Advanced Reprocessing Product Materials Containing U, NP, PU, and AM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The ability of inspection agencies and facility operators to measure powders containing several actinides is increasingly necessary as new reprocessing techniques and fuel forms are being developed. These powders are difficult to measure with nondestructive assay (NDA) techniques because neutrons emitted from induced and spontaneous fission of different nuclides are very similar. A neutron multiplicity technique based on first principle methods was developed to measure these powders by exploiting isotope-specific nuclear properties, such as the energy-dependent fission cross sections and the neutron induced fission neutron multiplicity. This technique was tested through extensive simulations using the Monte Carlo N-Particle eXtended (MCNPX) code and by one measurement campaign using the Active Well Coincidence Counter (AWCC) and two measurement campaigns using the Epithermal Neutron Multiplicity Counter (ENMC) with various (?,n) sources and actinide materials. Four potential applications of this first principle technique have been identified: (1) quantitative measurement of uranium, neptunium, plutonium, and americium materials; (2) quantitative measurement of mixed oxide (MOX) materials; (3) quantitative measurement of uranium materials; and (4) weapons verification in arms control agreements. This technique still has several challenges which need to be overcome, the largest of these being the challenge of having high-precision active and passive measurements to produce results with acceptably small uncertainties.

Measurement of spin observables in the quasi-free np-> {pp}_s pi- reaction at 353 MeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The transverse spin correlations A_{x,x} and A_{y,y} have been measured in the pol{d} pol{p} -> p_spec {pp}_s pi- reaction at COSY-ANKE at 353 MeV per nucleon. Here {pp}_s denotes a proton-proton pair with low excitation energy, which is dominantly in the 1S0 state. By measuring three protons in the final state it was possible to extract events where there was a spectator proton p_spec so that the reaction could be interpreted in terms of quasi-free pol{n} pol{p} -> {pp}_s pi-. The proton analyzing power in this reaction was also deduced from this data set by averaging over the polarization of the deuteron beam. The values of A_y^p were shown to be consistent with a refined analysis of our earlier results obtained with a polarized proton incident on a deuterium target. Taking these data in combination with our earlier measurements of the differential cross sections and analyzing powers in the pol{p} p -> {pp}_s pi^0 reaction, a more robust partial wave decomposition was achieved. Three different acceptable solutions were found and the only way of resolving this ambiguity without further theoretical input would be through a measurement of the mixed spin-correlation parameter A_{x,z}.

Measuring light-ion production and fission cross sections versus elastic np-scattering at the upcoming NFS facility  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Medley setup is planned to be moved to and used at the new neutron facility NFS where measurements of light-ion production and fission cross-sections are planned at 1-40 MeV. Medley has eight detector telescopes providing Delta E-Delta E-E data, each consisting of two silicon detectors and a CsI(Tl) detector at the back. The telescope setup is rotatable and can be made to cover any angle. Medley has previously been used in many measurements at The Svedberg Laboratory (TSL) in Uppsala mainly with a quasi-mono-energetic neutron beam at 96 and 175 MeV. To be able to do measurements at NFS, which will have a white neutron beam, Medley needs to detect the reaction products with a high temporal resolution providing the ToF of the primary neutron. In this paper we discuss the design of the Medley upgrade along with simulations of the setup. We explore the use of Parallel Plate Avalanche Counters (PPACs) which work very well for detecting fission fragments but require more consideration for detecting deeply penetrating particles.

Author manuscript, published in "N/P" An Ontology-Based Autonomic System for Improving Data Warehouse Performances  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract: With the increase in the amount and complexity of information, data warehouse performance has become a constant issue, especially for decision support systems. As decisional experts are faced with the management of more complex data warehouses, a need for autonomic management capabilities is shown to help them in their work. Implementing autonomic managers over knowledge bases to manage them is a solution that we find more and more used in business intelligence environments. What we propose, as decisional system experts, is an autonomic system for analyzing and improving data warehouse cache memory allocations in a client environment. The system formalizes aspects of the knowledge involved in the process of decision making (from system hardware specifications to practices describing cache allocation) into the same knowledge base in the form of ontologies, analyzes the current performance level (such as query average response time values) and proposes new cache allocation values so that better performance is obtained.

Preclosure seismic design methodology for a geologic repository at Yucca Mountain. Topical report YMP/TR-003-NP  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This topical report describes the methodology and criteria that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to use for preclosure seismic design of structures, systems, and components (SSCs) of the proposed geologic repository operations area that are important to safety. Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 60 (10 CFR 60), Disposal of High-Level Radioactive Wastes in Geologic Repositories, states that for a license to be issued for operation of a high-level waste repository, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) must find that the facility will not constitute an unreasonable risk to the health and safety of the public. Section 60.131 (b)(1) requires that SSCs important to safety be designed so that natural phenomena and environmental conditions anticipated at the geologic repository operations area will not interfere with necessary safety functions. Among the natural phenomena specifically identified in the regulation as requiring safety consideration are the hazards of ground shaking and fault displacement due to earthquakes.

Although there have been significant research and development studies on the inertial and magnetic fusion reactor technology, Furthermore, there are not radioactive nuclear waste problems in the fusion reactors. In this study, (n, p) reactions for some structural fusion materials such as 27Al, 51V, 52Cr, 55Mn and 56Fe have been investigated. The new calculations on the excitation functions of 27 Al(n,p) 27 Mg, 51 V(n,p) 51 Ti, 52 Cr(n,p) 52 V, 55 Mn(n,p) 55 Cr and 56 Fe(n,p) 56 Mn reactions have been carried out up to 30 MeV incident neutron energy. Statistical model calculations, based on the Hauser-Feshbach formalism, have been carried out using the TALYS-1.0 and were compared with available experimental data in the literature and with ENDF/B-VII, T=300k; JENDL-3.3, T=300k and JEFF3.1, T=300k evaluated libraries .

Revision of the 15N(p,?)16O reaction rate and oxygen abundance in H-burning zones  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The NO cycle takes place in the deepest layer of a H-burning core or shell, when the temperature exceeds T {\\simeq} 30 {\\cdot} 106 K. The O depletion observed in some globular cluster giant stars, always associated with a Na enhancement, may be due to either a deep mixing during the RGB (red giant branch) phase of the star or to the pollution of the primordial gas by an early population of massive AGB (asymptotic giant branch) stars, whose chemical composition was modified by the hot bottom burning. In both cases, the NO cycle is responsible for the O depletion. The activation of this cycle depends on the rate of the 15N(p,{\\gamma})16O reaction. A precise evaluation of this reaction rate at temperatures as low as experienced in H-burning zones in stellar interiors is mandatory to understand the observed O abundances. We present a new measurement of the 15N(p,{\\gamma})16O reaction performed at LUNA covering for the first time the center of mass energy range 70-370 keV, which corresponds to stellar temperatures between 65 {\\cdot} 106 K and 780 {\\cdot}106 K. This range includes the 15N(p,{\\gamma})16O Gamow-peak energy of explosive H-burning taking place in the external layer of a nova and the one of the hot bottom burning (HBB) nucleosynthesis occurring in massive AGB stars. With the present data, we are also able to confirm the result of the previous R-matrix extrapolation. In particular, in the temperature range of astrophysical interest, the new rate is about a factor of 2 smaller than reported in the widely adopted compilation of reaction rates (NACRE or CF88) and the uncertainty is now reduced down to the 10% level.

MERCURY REMOVAL FROM DOE SOLID MIXED WASTE USING THE GEMEP(sm) TECHNOLOGY  

SciTech Connect

Under the sponsorship of the Federal Energy Technology Center (FETC), Metcalf and Eddy (M and E), in association with General Electric Corporate Research and Development Center (GE-CRD), Colorado Minerals Research Institute (CMRI), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), conducted laboratory-scale and bench-scale tests of the General Electric Mercury Extraction Process technology on two mercury-contaminated mixed solid wastes from U. S. Department of Energy sites: sediment from the East Fork of Poplar Creek, Oak Ridge (samples supplied by Oak Ridge National Laboratory), and drummed soils from Idaho National Environmental and Engineering Laboratory (INEEL). Fluorescent lamps provided by GE-CRD were also studied. The GEMEP technology, invented and patented by the General Electric Company, uses an extraction solution composed of aqueous potassium iodide plus iodine to remove mercury from soils and other wastes. The extraction solution is regenerated by chemical oxidation and reused, after the solubilized mercury is removed from solution by reducing it to the metallic state. The results of the laboratory- and bench-scale testing conducted for this project included: (1) GEMEP extraction tests to optimize extraction conditions and determine the extent of co-extraction of radionuclides; (2) pre-screening (pre-segregation) tests to determine if initial separation steps could be used effectively to reduce the volume of material needing GEMEP extraction; and (3) demonstration of the complete extraction, mercury recovery, and iodine recovery and regeneration process (known as locked-cycle testing).

This paper presents a new privacy-preserving smart metering system. Our scheme is private under the differential privacy model and therefore provides strong and provable guarantees. With our scheme, an (electricity) supplier can periodically collect data from smart meters and derive aggregated statistics while learning only limited information about the activities of individual households. For example, a supplier cannot tell from a user's trace when he watched TV or turned on heating. Our scheme is simple, efficient and practical. Processing cost is very limited: smart meters only have to add noise to their data and encrypt the results with an efficient stream cipher.

SC/51/SM11 AERIAL SURVEYS OF BELUGA WHALES IN COOK INLET, ALASKA,  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML), in cooperation with the NMFS Alaska Regional Office, the Alaska Beluga Whale Committee (ABWC) and the Cook Inlet Marine Mammal Council (CIMMC), conducted an aerial survey of the beluga whale population in Cook Inlet, Alaska, during 9-15 June 1998. The 39.4 hr survey was flown in a twin-engine, high-wing aircraft at an altitude of 244 m (800 ft) altitude and speed of 185 km/hr (100 kt) along a trackline 1.4 km from shore. This provided complete coverage of coastal areas around the entire inlet (1,388 km) one or more times and 1,320 km of transects across the inlet. Throughout most of this survey, a test of sighting rates was conducted with multiple independent observers on the coastal (left) side of the plane, where virtually all sightings occur. A single observer and a computer operator/data recorder were on the right side. After finding beluga groups, a series of aerial passes were made to allow at least two pairs of observers to make 4 or more counts of each group. The sum of the aerial estimates (using median counts from each site, not corrected for missed whales) ranged from 173 to 192 whales, depending on survey day. There were 57-109 belugas counted near the Susitna River, 42-93 in Knik Arm and 23-42 in Chickaloon Bay, but only one (dead) beluga whale was found in lower Cook Inlet.

The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML), in cooperation with the NMFS Alaska Regional Office, the Alaska Beluga Whale Committee (ABWC) and the Cook Inlet Marine Mammal Council (CIMMC), conducted an aerial survey of the beluga whale population in Cook Inlet, Alaska, during 8-10 June 1997. This provided a thorough coverage of the coasts around the entire inlet (1,388 km). Therefore, 100 % of the coastal areas where belugas were expected to be during this season were searched one or more times. The 23 hr survey was flown in a twin-engine, high-wing aircraft at 244 m (800 ft) altitude and 185 km/hr (100 kt) along a trackline 1.4 km from shore. Throughout most of this survey, a test of sighting rates was conducted with multiple independent observers on the coastal (left) side of the plane, where virtually all sightings occur. A single observer and a computer operator/data recorder were on the right side. After finding beluga groups, a series of aerial passes were made to allow at least two pairs of observers to make 4 or more counts of whales. The sum of the aerial estimates (using median counts from each site, not corrected for missed whales) ranged from 217 to 264 whales, depending on survey day. Only 1 beluga whale was found in lower Cook Inlet, 51-73 were counted near the Susitna River, 139-161 were seen in Knik Arm and 26-29 were counted in Chickaloon Bay. Combining data from 1994-97, almost half (46%) of the initial sightings occurred>1.4 km from the aircraft- the perimeter of the standard viewing area- with mean sighting distances of 1.2 km for small groups ( = 20). In only 8 of 59 instances were whale groups>1.4 km from the trackline. Of 106 groups recorded by paired, independent observers in 1994-97, 20 were reported by only one primary observer, while 86 (81%) were reported by both observers.

The Impact of SuperB on Flavor Physics  

SciTech Connect

This report provides a succinct summary of the physics programme of SuperB, and describes that potential in the context of experiments making measurements in flavour physics over the next 10 to 20 years. Detailed comparisons are made with Belle II and LHCb, the other B physics experiments that will run in this decade. SuperB will play a crucial role in defining the landscape of flavour physics over the next 20 years. SuperB is an approved high luminosity e{sup +}e{sup -} collider intended to search for indirect and some direct signs of new physics (NP) at low energy, while at the same time, enabling precision tests of the Standard Model (SM). This experiment will be built at a new laboratory on the Tor Vergata campus near Rome, Italy named after Nicola Cabibbo. The project has been described in a Conceptual Design Report, and more recently by a set of three white papers on the accelerator, detector, and physics programme. The main focus of the physics programme rests in the study of so-called Golden Modes, these are decay channels that provide access to measurements of theoretically clean observables that can provide both stringent constraints on models of NP, and precision tests of the SM. A number of ancillary measurements that remain important include those with observables that may not be theoretically clean, and those that can be used to provide stringent constraints on the SM but are not sensitive to NP. The remainder of this section introduces SuperB before discussing the golden modes for SuperB, precision CKM measurement modes, and an outline of the rest of this report.

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.

We show that atomic force microscopy (AFM)-based electrical techniques provide unique junction characterizations, giving a two-dimensional determination of junction locations. Two AFM-based techniques, scanning capacitance microscopy/spectroscopy (SCM/SCS) and scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy (SKPFM), were significantly improved and applied to the junction characterizations of multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si) cells. The SCS spectra were taken pixel by pixel by precisely controlling the tip positions in the junction area. The spectra reveal distinctive features that depend closely on the position relative to the electrical junction, which allows us to indentify the electrical junction location. In addition, SKPFM directly probes the built-in potential over the junction area modified by the surface band bending, which allows us to deduce the metallurgical junction location by identifying a peak of the electric field. Our results demonstrate resolutions of 10-40 nm, depending on the techniques (SCS or SKPFM). These direct electrical measurements with nanometer resolution and intrinsic two-dimensional capability are well suited for investigating the junction distribution of solar cells with lateral inhomogeneities.

Nuclear Maintenance Applications Center: On-Line Leak Sealing: A Guide for Nuclear Power Plant Maintenance Personnel (Update of NP-6 523-D)  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

On-line leak sealing consists of repairing a leak or potential leak while the plant is operating. A pre-engineered fixture or part of the component itself is used to form a cavity that will contain the leak source. The fixture design includes a means of injecting the sealant using a shutoff adapter. The injection equipment is attached to the adaptor, and sealant is injected either directly into the cavity or into a peripheral seal to seal the leak. Although the methodology has been in existence for 45 ye...

Extension of Studies with 3M Empore TM and Selentec MAG *SEP SM Technologies for Improved Radionuclide Field Sampling  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Savannah River Technology Center is evaluating new field sampling methodologies to more easily determine concentrations of radionuclides in aqueous systems. One methodology studied makes use of 3M EmporeTM disks. The disks are composed of selective resins embedded in a Teflon support. The disks remove the ion of interest from aqueous solutions when the solution is passed through the disk. The disk can then be counted directly to quantify the isotope of interest. Four types of disks were studied during this work: for the extraction of technetium (two types), cesium, plutonium, and strontium. A sampler has been developed for automated, unattended, in situ use of the EmporeTM disks.

Radionuclide-Chelating Agent Complexes in Low-Level Radioactive Decontamination Waste; Stability, Adsorption and Transport Potential  

SciTech Connect

Speciation calculations were done to determine whether organic complexants facilitate transport of radionuclides leached from waste buried in soils. EDTA readily mobilizes divalent transition metals and moderately impacts trivalent actinides. Picolinate readily mobilizes only Ni2+ and Co2+. These speciation predictions ignore the influence of soil adsorption and biodegradation that break apart the complexes. In adsorption studies, picolinate concentrations have to be >10-4 M to lower the adsorption of Ni and Co. For Sm(III), Th(IV), Np(V), U(VI), and Pu, the picolinate concentration must be >10-3 M before adsorption decreases. EDTA forms strong complexes with divalent transition metals and can stop adsorption of Ni and Co when EDTA solution concentrations are 10-5 M. EDTA complexes with Np(V), U(VI), and Pu are much weaker; EDTA concentrations would have to be >10-3 M to adversely effects non-transition metal/radionuclide adsorption. Most picolinate and ETDA-metal complexes appear to readily dissociate during interactions with soils. The enhanced migration of radionuclide-organic complexes may be limited to a few unique conditions. We recommend that mixtures of metal/radionuclides and EDTA should not be solidified or co-disposed with high pH materials such as cement. For weaker binding organic complexants, such as picolinate, citrate and oxalate, co-disposal of decontamination wastes and concrete should be acceptable.

ROLLING AND WELDING TYPE 430M TUBES TO STAINLESS STEEL OVERLAID CARBON STEEL TUBE-SHEETS. SM-1 (APPR-1) RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. Task No. X.  

SciTech Connect

In the fabrication of the steam generator on APPR-1A it was considered necessary to roll the Type 430M tubes into carbon steel tubesheets to ASTM Specification A350-Grade LF-1, modifled with 1.66% nickel; and weld the tube ends to the stainless steel overlay previously applied to the tubesheet. The rolled joint was a necessary precaution to prevent secondary water, that might contain chlorides, from contacting the stainless steel weld joining the tubes to the tubesheets. The welded joint provided the mechanical strength for attaching the tubes to the tubesheets. A laboratory program was conducted, therefore, to develop practicable procedures for welding the Type 430M tubes to the stainless steel overlay; as well as to assure that the tubes could satisfactorily be rolled to the tubesheets. Automatic and manual tungstenare welding procedures were developed that were capable of consistently providing an austenitic weld having a strength exceeding that of the heat affected zone or the unaffected tube itself. Type 430M tubes in the asreceived, and softened conditions were rolled into prototype test units under various conditions of rolling. It was concluded that the Type 450M tubes in the as-received condition could be satisfactorily rolled into the A360Grade LF-1 tubesheet and be tlght to a pressurized helium leak test. To translate the laboratory procedures into fabrication practice for the steam generator consisting of the same materials, detailed welding and rolling procedures were outlined and transmitted to the fabricator, as well as included in this report.

Technique development for uiper critical field studies of SmFeAs(O,F) in the 300T single turn system  

SciTech Connect

In high temperature superconductors, such as the most recent class of iron pnictides, extremely high upper critical fields H{sub c2} are common. The determination of H{sub c2}(T) is crucial to understand the detailed nature of the superconductor, in particular H{sub c2}(T = 0K) is of great interest. It is not only related to fundamental properties of the system, it is furthermore of great importance for materials science, as it is the ultimate limit of applicability of this superconductor in high field applications. However, this important quantity can only be estimated by extrapolation, as H{sub c2}(T = 0K) well exceeds hundreds of Tesla in optimally doped SillFeAs(O,F). We are developing methods to measure Ha(T) in direct transport in the extreme magnetic fields generated by the LANL single turn magnet.

Angle-resolved photoemission study of the evolution of band structure and charge density wave properties in RTe3 (R= Y, La, Ce, Sm, Gd, Tb and Dy)  

SciTech Connect

We present a detailed ARPES investigation of the RTe{sub 3} family, which sets this system as an ideal 'textbook' example for the formation of a nesting driven Charge Density Wave (CDW). This family indeed exhibits the full range of phenomena that can be associated to CDW instabilities, from the opening of large gaps on the best nested parts of Fermi Surface (FS) (up to 0.4eV), to the existence of residual metallic pockets. ARPES is the best suited technique to characterize these features, thanks to its unique ability to resolve the electronic structure in k-space. An additional advantage of RTe{sub 3} is that the band structure can be very accurately described by a simple 2D tight-binding (TB) model, which allows one to understand and easily reproduce many characteristics of the CDW. In this paper, we first establish the main features of the electronic structure, by comparing our ARPES measurements with Linear Muffin-Tin Orbital band calculations. We use this to define the validity and limits of the TB model. We then present a complete description of the CDW properties and, for the first time, of their strong evolution as a function of R. Using simple models, we are able to reproduce perfectly the evolution of gaps in k-space, the evolution of the CDW wave vector with R and the shape of the residual metallic pockets. Finally, we give an estimation of the CDW interaction parameters and find that the change in the electronic density of states n(Ef), due to lattice expansion when different R ions are inserted, has the correct order of magnitude to explain the evolution of the CDW properties.

SUMMARY OF REACTOR DESIGN INFORMATION FROM THREE YEARS' OPERATION OF A SMALL PWR  

SciTech Connect

Reactor design information obtained from 3 years' operation of a small pressurized-water reactor, the SM-1 (formerly APPR-l), is presented and discussed. The SM-1 reactor, designed to produce 10 Mw(t) power, employs fully enriched uranium fuel in the form of UO/sub 2/ dispersed in stainless-steel fuel plates. The reactor is cooled by water at 1200 psia and mean temperature of 44) deg F. Core-physics measurements were performed of temperature coefficient, pressure coefficient, rod calibration, stuck rod position, and transient xenon as a function of core burn-out. Core burn-out characteristics were compared with few- group calculations, and reasonable agreement was obtained. Thermal-heat-balance data were obtained on the reactor core. The temperature pattern in the nominal and hot channels under operating conditions was calculated. These calculations indicated that certain of the fuel channels operated in the nucleate boiling regime. Examination of one of the fuel channels suspected of nucleate boiling indicated no adverse effects. The system response to load perturbations and during pump coast-down was measured utilizing plant instrumentation. This response was compared with analytical predictions using a lumped kinetic model, and reasonable agreement was found. Both neutron and gamma traverses were made through the primary shield during reactor operation. Gamma traverses were also made through the primary shield as a function of time after reactor shutdown. Conventional shielding calculational methods are found to give agreement with experiment sufficient for design purposes. An absolute ionization chamber was employed to measure N/sup 16/ activity in the reactor coolant. These measurements were compared with N/sup 16/ calculated from the (n,p) reaction on O/ sup 16/.
