Biotechnology and the precautionary principle  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper examines the relationships between science and the precautionary principle and their policy and institutional implications for biotechnology. It acknowledges the divergent approaches adopted by different regions of the world in managing the risks associated with biotechnology. The paper notes that the divergent views about the application of the precautionary principle to risk assessment and management are partly a reflection of how different regions of the world perceive the benefits and risks associated with modern biotechnology. It is this broader context, including economic considerations, in which the role of science in risk assessment and management needs to be framed. Explaining the differences will benefit from further clarification of the key concepts and definitions. But resolving them will most likely be a result of political acts that are beyond the realm of scientific analysis.

Step by Step Instructions Step by Step Instructions For Completing An Information Collection Request 1. A determination must be made if a Federal entity has an Information Collection Request (ICR). To assist in making that determination, the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)states the following: The PRA requires each Federal agency to seek and obtain Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval before undertaking a collection of information directed to ten or more people of the general public, including federal contractors, or continuing a collection for which the OMB approval and validity of the OMB control number are about to expire. 2. Once it's been determined that a program has an ICR, the program works with their Headquarters Point of Contact (POC) and prepare a 60-day Federal

Radiological Assistance Team Dispatched Radiological Assistance Team Dispatched To Los Alamos as Precautionary Measure CARLSBAD, N.M., May 11, 2000 - A team of radiological experts has been dispatched from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in response to a week-long forest fire that is threatening Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), one of the nation's premiere research laboratories. "We are responding completely as a precautionary measure," said Jere Galle, team leader for the WIPP Radiological Assistance Program (RAP) team. "It is our understanding that nuclear materials at LANL are not in harm's way. Our primary concern, however, is always to protect human health and the environment." The RAP team's mission is to provide radiological assistance to federal agencies, state,

The BP oil spill and the adherence to reductionist principles: moving toward a precautionary tomorrow  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The ability to successfully extract fossil fuels and mitigate the potential for social, economic, ecological and health-related impacts is of great importance. In April of 2010, the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill occurred in the Gulf of Mexico with 11 known fatalities. The disaster left the USA pressed to find a solution to solve the community health and safety issues associated with the offshore petroleum extraction industry in a policy and regulatory environment based on the reductionist perspective. However, in order to begin to address these issues, the regulatory environment must change their perspective to a precautionary one. This paper uses the BP oil spill as an example of what can happen when society continues to hold to reductionist principles, and advocates for a shift in thinking toward the precautionary perspective.

Next Step for STEP  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Siletz Tribal Energy Program (STEP), housed in the Tribe’s Planning Department, will hire a data entry coordinator to collect, enter, analyze and store all the current and future energy efficiency and renewable energy data pertaining to administrative structures the tribe owns and operates and for homes in which tribal members live. The proposed data entry coordinator will conduct an energy options analysis in collaboration with the rest of the Siletz Tribal Energy Program and Planning Department staff. An energy options analysis will result in a thorough understanding of tribal energy resources and consumption, if energy efficiency and conservation measures being implemented are having the desired effect, analysis of tribal energy loads (current and future energy consumption), and evaluation of local and commercial energy supply options. A literature search will also be conducted. In order to educate additional tribal members about renewable energy, we will send four tribal members to be trained to install and maintain solar panels, solar hot water heaters, wind turbines and/or micro-hydro.

Single molecule pulling with large time steps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recently, we presented a generalization of the Jarzynski nonequilibrium work theorem for phase space mappings. The formalism shows that one can determine free energy differences from approximate trajectories obtained from molecular dynamics simulations in which very large time steps are used. In this work we test the method by simulating the force-induced unfolding of a deca-alanine helix in vacuum. The excellent agreement between results obtained with a small, conservative time step of 0.5fs and results obtained with a time step of 3.2fs (i.e., close to the stability limit) indicates that the large-time-step approach is practical for such complex biomolecules. We further adapt the method of Hummer and Szabo for the simulation of single molecule force spectroscopy experiments to the large-time-step method. While trajectories generated with large steps are approximate and may be unphysical—in the simulations presented here we observe a violation of the equipartition theorem—the computed free energies are exact in principle. In terms of efficiency, the optimum time step for the unfolding simulations lies in the range 1–3fs.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Step-by-step guidance was developed recently at Idaho National Laboratory for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission on the use of the Standardized Plant Analysis Risk-Human Reliability Analysis (SPAR-H) method for quantifying Human Failure Events (HFEs). This work was done to address SPAR-H user needs, specifically requests for additional guidance on the proper application of various aspects of the methodology. This paper overviews the steps of the SPAR-H analysis process and highlights some of the most important insights gained during the development of the step-by-step directions. This supplemental guidance for analysts is applicable when plant-specific information is available, and goes beyond the general guidance provided in existing SPAR-H documentation. The steps highlighted in this paper are: Step-1, Categorizing the HFE as Diagnosis and/or Action; Step-2, Rate the Performance Shaping Factors; Step-3, Calculate PSF-Modified HEP; Step-4, Accounting for Dependence, and; Step-5, Minimum Value Cutoff.

The Satellite Test of the Equivalence Principle (STEP) will advance experimental limits on violations of Einstein's Equivalence Principle from their present sensitivity of 2 parts in $10^{13}$ to 1 part in $10^{18}$ through multiple comparison of the motions of four pairs of test masses of different compositions in a drag-free earth-orbiting satellite. We describe the experiment, its current status, and its potential implications for fundamental physics. Equivalence is at the heart of general relativity, our governing theory of gravity, and violations are expected in most attempts to unify this theory with the other fundamental interactions of physics, as well as in many theoretical explanations for the phenomenon of dark energy in cosmology. Detection of such a violation would be equivalent to the discovery of a new force of nature. A null result would be almost as profound, pushing upper limits on any coupling between standard-model fields and the new light degrees of freedom generically predicted by these theories down to unnaturally small levels.

OAK A271 OPTIMUM PLASMA STATES FOR NEXT STEP TOKAMAKS. The dependence of the ideal ballooning {beta} limit on aspect ratio, A, and elongation {kappa} is systematically explored for nearly 100% bootstrap current driven tokamak equilibria in a wide range of the shape parameters (A = 1.2-7.0, {kappa} = 1.5-6.0 with triangularity {delta} = 0.5). The critical {beta}{sub N} is shown to be optimal at {kappa} = 3.0-4.0 for all A studied and increases as A decreases with a dependence close to A{sup -0.5}. The results obtained can be used as a theoretical basis for the choice of optimum aspect ratio and elongation of next step burning plasma tokamaks or tokamak reactors.

Piezoelectric step-motion actuator  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A step-motion actuator using piezoelectric material to launch a flight mass which, in turn, actuates a drive pawl to progressively engage and drive a toothed wheel or rod to accomplish stepped motion. Thus, the piezoelectric material converts electrical energy into kinetic energy of the mass, and the drive pawl and toothed wheel or rod convert the kinetic energy of the mass into the desired rotary or linear stepped motion. A compression frame may be secured about the piezoelectric element and adapted to pre-compress the piezoelectric material so as to reduce tensile loads thereon. A return spring may be used to return the mass to its resting position against the compression frame or piezoelectric material following launch. Alternative embodiment are possible, including an alternative first embodiment wherein two masses are launched in substantially different directions, and an alternative second embodiment wherein the mass is eliminated in favor of the piezoelectric material launching itself.

2-Step IMAT and 2-Step IMRT in three dimensions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In two dimensions, 2-Step Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy (2-Step IMAT) and 2-Step Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) were shown to be powerful methods for the optimization of plans with organs at risk (OAR) (partially) surrounded by a target volume (PTV). In three dimensions, some additional boundary conditions have to be considered to establish 2-Step IMAT as an optimization method. A further aim was to create rules for ad hoc adaptations of an IMRT plan to a daily changing PTV-OAR constellation. As a test model, a cylindrically symmetric PTV-OAR combination was used. The centrally placed OAR can adapt arbitrary diameters with different gap widths toward the PTV. Along the rotation axis the OAR diameter can vary, the OAR can even vanish at some axis positions, leaving a circular PTV. The width and weight of the second segment were the free parameters to optimize. The objective function f to minimize was the root of the integral of the squared difference of the dose in the target volume and a reference dose. For the problem, two local minima exist. Therefore, as a secondary criteria, the magnitude of hot and cold spots were taken into account. As a result, the solution with a larger segment width was recommended. From plane to plane for varying radii of PTV and OAR and for different gaps between them, different sets of weights and widths were optimal. Because only one weight for one segment shall be used for all planes (respectively leaf pairs), a strategy for complex three-dimensional (3-D) cases was established to choose a global weight. In a second step, a suitable segment width was chosen, minimizing f for this global weight. The concept was demonstrated in a planning study for a cylindrically symmetric example with a large range of different radii of an OAR along the patient axis. The method is discussed for some classes of tumor/organ at risk combinations. Noncylindrically symmetric cases were treated exemplarily. The product of width and weight of the additional segment as well as the integral across the segment profile was demonstrated to be an important value. This product was up to a factor of 3 larger than in the 2-D case. Even in three dimensions, the optimized 2-Step IMAT increased the homogeneity of the dose distribution in the PTV profoundly. Rules for adaptation to varying target-OAR combinations were deduced. It can be concluded that 2-Step IMAT and 2-Step IMRT are also applicable in three dimensions. In the majority of cases, weights between 0.5 and 2 will occur for the additional segment. The width-weight product of the second segment is always smaller than the normalized radius of the OAR. The width-weight product of the additional segment is strictly connected to the relevant diameter of the organ at risk and the target volume. The derived formulas can be helpful to adapt an IMRT plan to altering target shapes.

Cosmic steps in modeling dark energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Past and recent data analyses gave some hints of steps in dark energy. Considering dark energy as a dynamical scalar field, we investigate several models with various steps: a step in the scalar potential, a step in the kinetic term, a step in the energy density, and a step in the equation-of-state parameter w. These toy models provide a workable mechanism to generate steps and features of dark energy. Remarkably, a single real scalar can cross w=-1 dynamically with a step in the kinetic term.

The Science Case for STEP  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Satellite Test of the Equivalence Principle (STEP) will advance experimental limits on violations of Einstein’s Equivalence Principle (EP) from their present sensitivity of 2 parts in 10 13 to 1 part in 10 18 through multiple comparison of the motions of four pairs of test masses of different compositions in an earth-orbiting drag-free satellite. Dimensional arguments suggest that violations, if they exist, should be found in this range, and they are also suggested by leading attempts at unified theories of fundamental interactions (e.g., string theory) and cosmological theories involving dynamical dark energy. Discovery of a violation would constitute the discovery of a new force of nature and provide a critical signpost toward unification. A null result would be just as profound, because it would close off any possibility of a natural-strength coupling between standard-model fields and the new light degrees of freedom that such theories generically predict (e.g., dilatons, moduli, quintessence). STEP should thus be seen as the intermediate-scale component of an integrated strategy for fundamental physics experiments that already includes particle accelerators (at the smallest scales) and supernova probes (at the largest). The former may find indirect evidence for new fields via their missing-energy signatures, and the latter may produce direct evidence through changes in cosmological equation of state—but only a gravitational experiment like STEP can go further and reveal how or whether such a field couples to the rest of the standard model. It is at once complementary to the other two kinds of tests, and a uniquely powerful probe of fundamental physics in its own right.

Electromigration wind force at stepped Al surfaces  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

When an electrical current flows parallel to a stepped metal surface, each step experiences a force due to momentum transfer from the carriers that are diffusely scattered by the step edge. In this paper, a ballistic model is used to compute the wind force per unit length acting on the steps of vicinal (100) surfaces of Al. The carrier scattering at the surface is described by a potential-barrier model fit to the results of a first-principles calculation of the surface-induced resistivity of the unstepped surface. The magnitude of the wind force is an increasing function of the step terrace width and reaches a constant value as the steps move apart. For an isolated step on a Al(100) surface, the effective wind valence per unit length of the step edge is zw?-15e Å-1. This value is equivalent to a wind valence of zw?-43e per atom at the leading edge of each step.

Temperature dependence of the step free energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have derived an expression for the step free energy that includes the usual thermally induced step meandering term and a vibrational entropy term related to the step edge atoms. The latter term results from the rèduced local coordination of the step atoms with respect to the terrace atoms and was introduced recently by Frenken and Stoltze as well as by Bonzel and Emundts. Additionally, we have added third and fourth terms that deal with the vibrational entropy contribution of the thermally generated step and kink atoms. At elevated temperatures the two latter vibrational entropy terms are of the same order of magnitude. Incorporation of these vibrational entropy terms results in a faster decrease of the step free energy with increasing temperature than anticipated previously. This enhanced temperature dependence of the step free energy results in a lower thermal roughening temperature of the facet.

Aeration efficiency over stepped cascades: Better predictions from flow regimes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Stepped cascades are recognized as high potential air–water gas exchangers. In natural rivers, these structures enhance oxygen transfer to water by creating turbulence at interface with increasing air entrainment in water and air–water surface exchange. Stepped cascades could be really useful to improve the natural self-purification process by providing oxygen to aerobic micro-organisms. The aeration performance of these structures depends on several operating and geometrical parameters. In the literature, several empirical correlations for aeration efficiency prediction on stepped cascades exist. Most of these correlations are only applicable for operating and geometrical parameters in the range of which they have been developed. In this paper, 398 experimental sets of data (from our experiments and collected from literature) were used to develop a correlation for aeration prediction over stepped cascades derived from dimensional analysis and parameterized for each individual flow regime in order to consider change in flow regime effect on oxygen transfer. This new correlation allowed calculating the whole set of data obtained for cascades with steps heights between 0.05 m and 0.254 m, cascade total height between 0.25 m and 2.5 m, for discharges per unit of width ranging from 0.28 10?3 m2/s to 600 10?3 m2/s and for cascade steps number between 3 and 25. In these ranges of parameters, standard deviation for aeration efficiency estimation was found to be less than 17%. Finally, advices were proposed to help and improve the structure design in order to improve aeration.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A new version of the low-frequency (3.6 Hz) vibrating sample magnetometer was built. Its mechanical part consists of a crank transducer with a step motor driven by a microcontroller. Step durations are programmed in such a way that the signal from pick-up coils is perfectly sinusoidal as a function of time. The signal is narrow-band amplified, digitized at each of 400 steps of one period and lock-in detected by a computer. The magnetometer has low noise and may be used not only with superconducting but with water-cooled magnets.

This new version referred to as the Step?2 GPHS Module has additional and thicker layers of carbon fiber material (Fine Weaved Pierced Fabric) for increased strength over the original GPHS module. The GPHS uses alpha decay of 238 Pu in the oxide form as the primary source of heat and small amounts of other actinides are also present in the oxide fuel. Criticality calculations have been performed by previous researchers on the original version of the GPHS module (Step 0). This paper presents criticality calculations for the present Step?2 version. The Monte Carlo N?Particle eXtended code (MCNPX) was used for these calculations. Numerous configurations of GPHS module arrays surrounded by wet sand and other materials (to reflect the neutrons back into the stack with minimal absorption) were modeled. For geometries with eight GPHS modules (from a single MMRTG) surrounded by wet sand the configuration is extremely sub?critical; k eff is about 0.3. It requires about 1000 GPHS modules (from 125 MMRTGs) in a close?spaced stack to approach criticality ( k eff ?=?1.0) when surrounded by wet sand. The effect of beryllium in the MMRTG was found to be relatively small.

Ge surface-energy-driven secondary grain growth via two-step annealing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A two-step annealing method with a low thermal budget is proposed for advanced surface-energy-driven secondary grain growth of Ge films without any agglomeration. In the first-step annealing, the normal grain growth from as-deposited poly-crystalline Ge films was induced to make the grain size equivalent to the film thickness at 800 °C. After the subsequent second-step annealing at 900 °C, the much larger secondary grains were obtained than those by single-step annealing at 900 °C. The possible explanation regarding the final microstructure of the two-step annealed film is proposed. The two-step annealing was able to form the microstructure of Ge thin film with very large-grained matrix without any agglomeration, resulting in higher carrier mobility. Therefore, the proposed two-step annealing is believed to be a promising process applicable for channel formation processes in the next-generation Ge thin film transistors for 3D integrated circuits and vertical NAND flash memories.

Multiple time step integrators in ab initio molecular dynamics  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Multiple time-scale algorithms exploit the natural separation of time-scales in chemical systems to greatly accelerate the efficiency of molecular dynamics simulations. Although the utility of these methods in systems where the interactions are described by empirical potentials is now well established, their application to ab initio molecular dynamics calculations has been limited by difficulties associated with splitting the ab initio potential into fast and slowly varying components. Here we present two schemes that enable efficient time-scale separation in ab initio calculations: one based on fragment decomposition and the other on range separation of the Coulomb operator in the electronic Hamiltonian. We demonstrate for both water clusters and a solvated hydroxide ion that multiple time-scale molecular dynamics allows for outer time steps of 2.5 fs, which are as large as those obtained when such schemes are applied to empirical potentials, while still allowing for bonds to be broken and reformed throughout the dynamics. This permits computational speedups of up to 4.4x, compared to standard Born-Oppenheimer ab initio molecular dynamics with a 0.5 fs time step, while maintaining the same energy conservation and accuracy.

Next step spherical torus design studies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Studies are underway to identify and characterize a design point for a next step spherical torus (NSST) experiment. This would be a ‘proof of performance’ device which would follow and build upon the successes of the national spherical torus experiment (NSTX) ‘proof of principle’ device which has operated at PPPL since 1999. With the decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) of the tokamak fusion test reactor (TFTR) nearly completed, the TFTR test cell and facility will soon be available for a device such as NSST. By utilizing the TFTR test cell, NSST can be constructed for a relatively low cost on a short time scale. In addition, while furthering spherical torus (ST) research, this device could achieve modest fusion power gain for short pulse lengths, a significant step toward future large burning plasma devices now under discussion in the fusion community. The selected design point is Q=2 at HH=1.4, Pfusion=60 MW, 5-s pulse, with R0=1.5 m, A=1.6, Ip=10 MA, Bt=2.6 T, CS flux=16 weber. Most of the research would be conducted in DD, with a limited DT campaign during the last years of the program.

High temperature superconducting step-edge SNS Josephson junctions on silicon substrates  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The authors have fabricated and tested YBCO step-edge SNS Josephson junctions on silicon substrates. The silicon step edges were patterned photolithographically and reactively ion etched using an SF{sub 6} plasma. The structures were fabricated through sequential angled pulsed laser deposition of yttria stabilized zirconia, YBCO, and gold layers, followed by photolithographic patterning and ion milling. The completed devices showed resistively shunted junction (RSJ)-like current voltage characteristics and microwave induced Shapiro Steps. Critical currents as large as 84 {micro}A and resistances of order 0.5 {Omega} were obtained. Measurable critical currents were observed up to 76 K. The authors report on the fabrication and properties of these junctions.

A Step-by-step Guide to the Realisation of Advanced Optical Tweezers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Since the pioneering work of Arthur Ashkin, optical tweezers have become an indispensable tool for contactless manipulation of micro- and nanoparticles. Nowadays optical tweezers are employed in a myriad of applications demonstrating the importance of these tools. While the basic principle of optical tweezers is the use of a strongly focused laser beam to trap and manipulate particles, ever more complex experimental set-ups are required in order to perform novel and challenging experiments. With this article, we provide a detailed step- by-step guide for the construction of advanced optical manipulation systems. First, we explain how to build a single-beam optical tweezers on a home-made microscope and how to calibrate it. Improving on this design, we realize a holographic optical tweezers, which can manipulate independently multiple particles and generate more sophisticated wavefronts such as Laguerre-Gaussian beams. Finally, we explain how to implement a speckle optical tweezers, which permit one to employ ...

Absolute orientation-dependent anisotropic TiN(111) island step energies and stiffnesses from shape fluctuation analyses  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In situ high-temperature (1165–1248 K) scanning-tunneling microscopy was used to measure temporal fluctuations about the anisotropic equilibrium shape of two-dimensional TiN(111) adatom and vacancy islands on atomically smooth TiN(111) terraces. The equilibrium island shape was found to be a truncated hexagon bounded by alternating ?110? steps, which form [100] and [110] nanofacets with the terrace. Relative step energies ? as a function of step orientation ? were obtained from the inverse Legendre transformation of the equilibrium island shape to within an orientation-independent scale factor ?, the equilibrium chemical potential of the island per unit TiN area. We find that for alternating S1 and S2 ?110? steps, the ratio ?1/?2=0.72±0.02. The parameter ? and, hence, absolute orientation-dependent values of ?(?) and step stiffnesses ??(?) were extracted from quantitative shape fluctuation data using an exact theoretical approach valid for anisotropic islands. For the two ?110? steps, we obtain ?1=0.23±0.05 and ??1=1.9±1.1 eV/Å with ?2=0.33±0.07 and ??2=0.08±0.02 eV/Å over the observed temperature range. Due to the correspondingly high kink energies, TiN(111) step energies exhibit only a very weak temperature dependence between 0 K and the maximum measurement temperature 1248 K.

Method and apparatus of periodically obtaining accurate opacity monitor readings of an exhaust gas stream  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This patent describes in an opacity monitor associated with an exhaust stack, the monitor having a transmitter and a receiving which cooperate to measure a quantity of particulate matter in an exhaust gas stream, a method of periodically obtaining opacity monitor readings. It comprises: shielding the monitor from the exhaust gas stream by placing two windows adjacent to the monitor, a first window being placed between the transmitter and the exhaust gas stream and a second window being placed between the receiver and the exhaust gas stream; cleaning at least one of the windows for a first predetermined time period by spraying a volatile nonflammable cleaning solvent onto the window by means of a sprayer intermittently operable during the first predetermined time period while wiping the window with a reciprocating wiper arm in resilient engagement therewith; then obtaining an opacity monitor reading by directing a light beam across the exhaust stack from the transmitter via the first window through the exhaust gas stream to the receiver via the second window; and alternately repeating the step of cleaning the window with the step of obtaining an opacity monitor reading.

New Mexico's pioneering steps in commercializing solar power  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Over the past two years, New Mexico has been engaged in a significant new approach to implement large purchases of solar power. This effort followed a regulatory process that treated solar power generation similar to conventional generation obtained by an investor owned utility under the regulation of a public utility commission. in 1997, Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) gained approval to purchase power from a 100-MW combustion turbine facility that would be owned and operated by a wholesale generator. At the same time it issued the approval, and following discussions with the utility, the New Mexico Public Utility Commission (NMPUC) also required PNM to issue a request for proposal for a 5-MW central station solar facility, a major step for solar technologies in the state, in what would be the world's largest of its technology type. In cooperation with the staff of the NMPUC, PNM reviewed the proposals received, and Applied Power Corporation was selected for the photovoltaic portion of the proposed plant, retaining ownership of the plant, assuming the risks connected with the technology, and operating the plant in exchange for a power purchase agreement in a first-of-its-kind contract for photovoltaic. During the NMPUC hearings, various parties raised significant opposition to the cost-recovery mechanism that was proposed and voiced issues about the type of solar plant, its size, cost, and the funding approaches to building it. Because of these issues, alternative proposals were put forth that reduced the size and costs of the plant and had implied changes in ownership and risks. The order issues by the NMPUC on October 21, 1998, requires PNM to impose a charge of 0.5% on its retail electric customers' monthly bills to be used to acquire the solar facilities, but also to obtain other renewable electric power resources, both on a pay-as-you-go basis. This paper identifies the issues and their resolution that similar projects are expected to encounter.

Method for localizing and isolating an errant process step  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method for localizing and isolating an errant process includes the steps of retrieving from a defect image database a selection of images each image having image content similar to image content extracted from a query image depicting a defect, each image in the selection having corresponding defect characterization data. A conditional probability distribution of the defect having occurred in a particular process step is derived from the defect characterization data. A process step as a highest probable source of the defect according to the derived conditional probability distribution is then identified. A method for process step defect identification includes the steps of characterizing anomalies in a product, the anomalies detected by an imaging system. A query image of a product defect is then acquired. A particular characterized anomaly is then correlated with the query image. An errant process step is then associated with the correlated image.

Small Town Energy Program (STEP) Final Report revised  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

University Park, Maryland (“UP”) is a small town of 2,540 residents, 919 homes, 2 churches, 1 school, 1 town hall, and 1 breakthrough community energy efficiency initiative: the Small Town Energy Program (“STEP”). STEP was developed with a mission to “create a model community energy transformation program that serves as a roadmap for other small towns across the U.S.” STEP first launched in January 2011 in UP and expanded in July 2012 to the neighboring communities of Hyattsville, Riverdale Park, and College Heights Estates, MD. STEP, which concluded in July 2013, was generously supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The STEP model was designed for replication in other resource-constrained small towns similar to University Park - a sector largely neglected to date in federal and state energy efficiency programs. STEP provided a full suite of activities for replication, including: energy audits and retrofits for residential buildings, financial incentives, a community-based social marketing backbone and local community delivery partners. STEP also included the highly innovative use of an “Energy Coach” who worked one-on-one with clients throughout the program. Please see www.smalltownenergy.org for more information. In less than three years, STEP achieved the following results in University Park: • 30% of community households participated voluntarily in STEP; • 25% of homes received a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR assessment; • 16% of households made energy efficiency improvements to their home; • 64% of households proceeded with an upgrade after their assessment; • 9 Full Time Equivalent jobs were created or retained, and 39 contractors worked on STEP over the course of the project. Estimated Energy Savings - Program Totals kWh Electricity 204,407 Therms Natural Gas 24,800 Gallons of Oil 2,581 Total Estimated MMBTU Saved (Source Energy) 5,474 Total Estimated Annual Energy Cost Savings $61,343 STEP clients who had a home energy upgrade invested on average $4,500, resulting in a 13% reduction in annual energy use and utility bill savings of $325. Rebates and incentives covered 40%-50% of retrofit cost, resulting in an average simple payback of about 7 years. STEP has created a handbook in which are assembled all the key elements that went into the design and delivery of STEP. The target audiences for the handbook include interested citizens, elected officials and municipal staff who want to establish and run their own efficiency program within a small community or neighborhood, using elements, materials and lessons from STEP.

At the highest concentration, ~48 mM in repeat units for lengths from 20 to 133 fluorenes, ~30% of the electrons formed during pulse radiolysis were captured in the step, with a constant efficiency per repeat unit. Step capture per repeat unit (q = 6.9 M-1) is 60% of the presolvated electron capture efficiency

Adaptive time step in simulation of progressive flooding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Time accurate simulation of progressive flooding inside a ship often requires a short time step. However, after the initial phases, as the flooding progresses to undamaged compartments, the flow rates decrease and much longer time step could be used. Yet the collapsing of non-watertight structures may cause additional phases of fast flooding, where a shorter time step is required. In this paper the use of an adaptive time step in flooding simulation is discussed, and a new approach to this problem is presented. The time step is automatically adjusted during the simulation on the basis of the maximum absolute velocity of the free surface levels in the flooded compartments. The method is tested with small case studies, presenting typical flooding conditions in passenger ships.

Charged steps on III-V compound semiconductor surfaces  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The electrical charge of steps on (110) surfaces of InP, GaP, and GaAs is probed by scanning tunneling microscopy. It is demonstrated that step edges, with and without kinks, are charged and have localized defect states in the band gap. The charge of indium-terminated step edges on p-type doped InP(110) after annealing is found to be independent of the step orientation, while a strong orientation dependence is observed for phosphorus-terminated steps. This is explained by a partial compensation of the charge due to rebonding after phosphorus desorption. The magnitude of charge is estimated to be in the range of +1e to +3e per lattice spacing. © 1996 The American Physical Society.

Bio-inspired step-climbing in a hexapod robot  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Inspired by the observation that the cockroach changes from a tripod gait to a different gait for climbing high steps, we report on the design and implementation of a novel, fully autonomous step-climbing maneuver, which enables a RHex-style hexapod robot to reliably climb a step up to 230% higher than the length of its leg. Similar to the climbing strategy most used by cockroaches, the proposed maneuver is composed of two stages. The first stage is the 'rearing stage,' inclining the body so the front side of the body is raised and it is easier for the front legs to catch the top of the step, followed by the 'rising stage,' maneuvering the body's center of mass to the top of the step. Two infrared range sensors are installed on the front of the robot to detect the presence of the step and its orientation relative to the robot's heading, so that the robot can perform automatic gait transition, from walking to step-climbing, as well as correct its initial tilt approaching posture. An inclinometer is utilized to measure body inclination and to compute step height, thus enabling the robot to adjust its gait automatically, in real time, and to climb steps of different heights and depths successfully. The algorithm is applicable for the robot to climb various rectangular obstacles, including a narrow bar, a bar and a step (i.e. a bar of infinite width). The performance of the algorithm is evaluated experimentally, and the comparison of climbing strategies and climbing behaviors in biological and robotic systems is discussed.

ULTRASOUND PULSE-ECHO IMAGING USING THE SPLIT-STEP FOURIER PROPAGATOR  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Ultrasonic reflection imaging has the potential to produce higher image resolution than transmission tomography, but imaging resolution and quality still need to be further improved for early cancer detection and diagnosis. We present an ultrasound reflection image reconstruction method using the split-step Fourier propagator. It is based on recursive inward continuation of ultrasonic wavefields in the frequency-space and frequency-wavenumber domains. The inward continuation within each extrapolation interval consists of two steps. In the first step, a phase-shift term is applied to the data in the frequency-wavenumber domain for propagation in a reference medium. The second step consists of applying another phase-shift term to data in the frequency-space domain to approximately compensate for ultrasonic scattering effects of heterogeneities within the breast. We use synthetic ultrasound pulse-echo data recorded around a ring for heterogeneous, computer-generated numerical breast phantoms to study the imaging capability of the method. The phantoms are derived from an experimental breast phantom and a sound-speed tomography image of an in-vivo ultrasound breast data collected usi ng a ring array. The heterogeneous sound-speed models used for pulse-echo imaging are obtained using a computationally efficient, first-arrival-time (time-of-flight) transmission tomography method. Our studies demonstrate that reflection image reconstruction using the split-step Fourier propagator with heterogeneous sound-speed models significantly improves image quality and resolution. We also numerically verify the spatial sampling criterion of wavefields for a ring transducer array.

Growth of Quantum Wires on Step-Bunched Substrate  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This proposal initiates a combined theoretical and experimental multidisciplinary research effort to explore a novel approach for growing metallic and magnetic nanowires on step-bunched semiconductor and dielectric substrates, and to lay the groundwork for understanding the growth mechanisms and the electronic, electrical, and magnetic properties of metallic and magnetic nanowires. The research will focus on four topics: (1) fundamental studies of step bunching and self-organization in a strained thin film for creating step-bunched substrates. (2) Interaction between metal adatoms (Al,Cu, and Ni) and semiconductor (Si and SiGe) and dielectric (CaF2) surface steps. (3) growth and characterization of metallic and magnetic nanowires on step-bunched templates. (4) fabrication of superlattices of nanowires by growing multilayer films. We propose to attack these problems at both a microscopic and macroscopic level, using state-of-the-art theoretical and experimental techniques. Multiscale (electronic-atomic-continuum) theories will be applied to investigate growth mechanisms of nanowires: mesoscopic modeling and simulation of step flow growth of strained thin films, in particular, step bunching and self-organization will be carried out within the framework of continuum linear elastic theory; atomistic calculation of interaction between metal adatoms and semiconductor and dielectric surface steps will be done by large-scale computations using first-principles total-energy methods. In parallel, thin films and nanowires will be grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), and the resultant structure and morphology will be characterized at the atomic level up to micrometer range, using a combination of different surface/interface probes, including scanning tunneling microscopy (STM, atomic resolution), atomic force microscopy (AFM, nanometer resolution), low-energy electron microscopy (LEEM, micrometer resolution), reflectance high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED), and x-ray diffraction. Finally, the electronic, electrical, and magnetic properties of the thin films and nanowires will be explored by both theory and experiment.

The structure and reactivity of adsorbates on stepped Rh and Pt surfaces investigated by LEED, HREELS, TPD, XPS and STM  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Defects on surfaces such as steps play an important role in surface chemistry. In order to obtain an understanding of the influence of steps in surface chemical reactions, the structure and reactivity of small molecules (O{sub 2}, CO, H{sub 2}S, and C{sub 2}H{sub 4}) on atomically stepped surfaces of RH and Pt have been investigated. The detailed structures of CO and oxygen bonded to the Rh(110) surface were determined. The CO molecules bond near the short bridge sites with the CO molecular axis tilted approximately 24{degree} from the surface normal. Oxygen atoms are bound asymmetrically in the 3-fold fcc hollow-sites to the (111) facets of the steps. The interactions of CO and oxygen on the Rh(311) surface were examined. The reaction of CO with the ordered phases of O shows two distinct reaction channels, a low temperature reaction limited channel (200 K) and a high temperature diffusion limited channel (350 K). Models of the reaction geometry and dynamics are proposed. The thermal decomposition of ethylene was examined on the Rh(311) surface. The stable decomposition species (C{sub 2}H, CH and C{sub 2}) are formed near 300 K, approximately 100 K lower on the stepped Rh(311) than on the flatter Rh(111) surface. The formation of these species at lower temperatures is attributed to the stepped nature of the surface. Finally, in situ STM was used to examine surface structural changes of a stepped Pt(111) crystal under coadsorption of sulfur and CO. This is the first direct evidence for a new mechanism by which a surface covered with an unreactive, strongly chemisorbed overlayer can form new sites, for bonding and reactions to occur, by massive surface restructuring at the step edges. This new surface phenomenon answers some of the puzzles of metal surface catalysis and its implications are described. 278 refs.

New families of superintegrable systems from k-step rational extensions, polynomial algebras and degeneracies  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Four new families of two-dimensional quantum superintegrable systems are constructed from k-step extension of the harmonic oscillator and the radial oscillator. Their wavefunctions are related with Hermite and Laguerre exceptional orthogonal polynomials (EOP) of type III. We show that ladder operators obtained from alternative construction based on combinations of supercharges in the Krein-Adler and Darboux Crum ( or state deleting and creating ) approaches can be used to generate a set of integrals of motion and a corresponding polynomial algebra that provides an algebraic derivation of the full spectrum and total number of degeneracies. Such derivation is based on finite dimensional unitary representations (unirreps) and doesn't work for integrals build from standard ladder operators in supersymmetric quantum mechanics (SUSYQM) as they contain singlets isolated from excited states. In this paper, we also rely on a novel approach to obtain the finite dimensional unirreps based on the action of the integrals of motion on the wavefunctions given in terms of these EOP. We compare the results with those obtained from the Daskaloyannis approach and the realizations in terms of deformed oscillator algebras for one of the new families in the case of 1-step extension. This communication is a review of recent works.

Obtaining the Bidirectional Transfer Distribution Function of Isotropically Obtaining the Bidirectional Transfer Distribution Function of Isotropically Scattering Materials Using an Integrating Sphere Title Obtaining the Bidirectional Transfer Distribution Function of Isotropically Scattering Materials Using an Integrating Sphere Publication Type Journal Article LBNL Report Number LBNL-61826 Year of Publication 2007 Authors Jonsson, Jacob C., and Henrik Branden Journal Optics Communications Volume 277 Pagination 228-236 Call Number LBNL-61826 Abstract This paper demonstrates a method to determine the bidirectional transfer distribution function (BTDF) using an integrating sphere. Information about the sample's angle dependent scattering is obtained by making transmittance measurements with the sample at different distances from the integrating sphere. Knowledge about the illuminated area of the sample and the geometry of the sphere port in combination with the measured data combines to an system of equations that includes the angle dependent transmittance. The resulting system of equations is an ill-posed problem which rarely gives a physical solution. A solvable system is obtained by using Tikhonov regularization on the ill-posed problem. The solution to this system can then be used to obtain the BTDF. Four bulk-scattering samples were characterised using both two goniophotometers and the described method to verify the validity of the new method. The agreement shown is great for the more diffuse samples. The solution to the low-scattering samples contains unphysical oscillations, but still gives the correct shape of the solution. The origin of the oscillations and why they are more prominent in low-scattering samples are discussed.

Step-coverage simulation for tetraethoxysilane and ozone atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A simulation model for atmospheric pressure (AP) CVD has bee developed using one-dimensional diffusion and mass conservation equations. The model was applied to trench step-coverage of the tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and O[sub 3] CVD, in which it was not necessary to consider lateral diffusion because of narrow (and deep) trenches. For nondoped silicate glass (NSG), the step-coverage of a 4.5 aspect ratio trench showed a good fit if a sticking probability of 0.0039 was assumed for the 0.6% ozone (in oxygen) deposition and of 0.0026 for the 6% ozone deposition (both 400 C). The reaction rate constant was compared with the diffusion mass-transfer coefficient, and the reaction proved to be limited by diffusion of the reactant, TEOS, which directly participated in the CVD reaction. For the 2 m/o phosphosilicate glass (PSG) step-coverage, which had a slight overhang, the model matched the obtained results well only when an active growth species with a high sticking probability of 1.0 was added to the growth species of nondoped oxide. This analytical simulation method satisfactorily explains the experimental data.

Two-step quantum cutting efficiency in Pr3+-Yb3+ codoped KY3F10  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The efficiency of a two-step quantum cutting (QC) mechanism for solar downconversion via two consecutive energy transfers from Pr3+ to Yb3+ is investigated in Pr3+-Yb3+ codoped KY3F10 crystals. The efficiency of the QC second energy transfer involving the Pr3+ (1G4) and Yb3+ (2F5/2) levels is particularly difficult to determine in a precise manner since these two levels are coupled by reciprocal energy transfer. We present a specific rate equation modeling that accurately describes Pr3+ and Yb3+ dynamics and intensity ratios measured as a function of the Yb3+ concentration. The modeling enables to calculate energy transfer rates for all the processes and shows the competition between the two-step QC mechanism and parasitic processes. The first-step of the QC mechanism is, as expected, particularly efficient reaching 96.9% and is not challenged by competing processes. The second step of the QC, while reaching an intrinsic efficiency of 75.9%, is plagued by backtransfers from Yb3+ (2F5/2) to Pr3+ (1G4) along with efficient concentration quenching mechanisms draining the Yb3+ excited-state. In addition, the investigation of intensity ratios with the Yb3+ concentration shows the importance of energy migration among Yb3+ ions that further enhances the detrimental effect of the Yb3+ quenching processes. As a result, the intrinsic QC efficiency (QCE) of the QC first and second energy transfers increases with the Yb3+ doping level up to 173% in KY3F10: 0.5%Pr3+-20%Yb3+, while the real QCE reduced by migration-assisted quenching processes is only 6.2% in this sample. These results clarify apparently conflicting reports found in the literature showing, on one hand, very high QCEs derived from spectroscopic experiments and, on the other hand, very low efficiency values obtained from integrating sphere measurements.

One-step degradation of cellulose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in ionic liquid under mild conditions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract One-step conversion of cellulose to HMF (5-hydroxymethylfurfural) has been achieved by using metal chlorides (CrCl3, CuCl2, SnCl4, WCl6) in [BMIM]Cl. The effects of temperature, reaction time, amount of catalysts, and the purity of [BMIM]Cl on the performance have been studied and discussed in detail. More than 63% yield of HMF and 80% yield of TRS (total reducing sugar) were obtained in [BMIM]Cl with CrCl3 at 120 °C under atmospheric pressure. Filter paper and cotton were also used as a source for cellulose degradation to HMF, but only a moderate yield of HMF was obtained (40% for filter paper and 12% for cotton). The reutilization of this system was examined and the reaction mechanism was also discussed.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We present an application of magnetic Compton scattering (MCS) to decompose a total magnetization loop into spin and orbital magnetization contributions. A spin magnetization loop of SmAl{sub 2} was measured by recording the intensity of magnetic Compton scattering as a function of applied magnetic field. Comparing the spin magnetization loop with the total magnetization one measured by a vibrating sample magnetometer, the orbital magnetization loop was obtained. The data display an anti-coupled behavior between the spin and orbital magnetizations and confirm that the orbital part dominates the magnetization.

How to obtain the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS)  

Reports and Publications (EIA)

The National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) NEMS is used by the modelers at the U. S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) who understand its structure and programming. NEMS has only been used by a few organizations outside of the EIA, because most people that requested NEMS found out that it was too difficult or rigid to use. NEMS is not typically used for state-level analysis and is poorly suited for application to other countries. However, many do obtain the model simply to use the data in its input files or to examine the source code.

Can the photosynthesis first step quantum mechanism be explained?  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Photosynthesis first step mechanism concerns the sunlight absorption and both negative and positive charges separation. Recent and important photosynthesis literature claims that this mechanism is quantum mechanics controlled, however without presenting qualitative or quantitative scientifically based mechanism. The present accepted and old-fashioned photosynthesis mechanism model suffers from few drawbacks and an important issue is the absence of driving force for negative and positive charges separation. This article presents a new qualitative model for this first step mechanism in natural catalytic systems such as photosynthesis in green leaves. The model uses a concept of semiconductor band gap engineering, such as the staggered energy band gap line-up in semiconductors. To explain the primary mechanism in natural photosynthesis the proposal is the following: incident light is absorbed inside the leaves causing charges separation. The only energetic configuration that allows charges separation under illum...

Hydrogenation of O and OH on Pt(111): A comparison between the reaction rates of the first and the second hydrogen addition steps  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The formation of water through hydrogenation of oxygen on platinum occurs at a surprisingly low reaction rate. The reaction rate limited process for this catalytic reaction is, however, yet to be settled. In the present work, the reaction rates of the first and the second hydrogen addition steps are compared when hydrogen is obtained through intense synchrotron radiation that induces proton production in a water overlayer on top of the adsorbed oxygen species. A substantial amount of the produced hydrogen diffuses to the platinum surface and promotes water formation at the two starting conditions O/Pt(111) and (H{sub 2}O+OH)/Pt(111). The comparison shows no significant difference in the reaction rate between the first and the second hydrogen addition steps, which indicates that the rate determining process of the water formation from oxygen on Pt(111) is neither the first nor the second H addition step or, alternatively, that both H addition steps exert rate control.

Obtaining slow beam spills at the SSC collider  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

There is substantial interest in providing slow-spill external proton beams in parallel with ``interaction running`` at the 20 TeV SSC collider. The proposal is to cause a flux of particles to impinge on a target consisting of a bent crystal extraction channel. Additionally, a slow spill onto a conventional internal target could be used as a source of secondary beams for physics or test purposes and might also be used for B-physics as proposed for HERA. The ``natural`` beam loss rates from elastic and diffractive beam gas scattering and IP collisions are not sufficient to provide suitably intense external proton beams. To prevent loss of luminosity, the rf excitation is non-linear and preferentially blows up the halo of the beam. The ``target`` is to be located at a region of high dispersion forcing particles at the edge of the momentum space onto the target. T. Lohse in this workshop has described a proposed internal target to be used at HERA that will not employ rf excitation but will use the finite loss rates observed at the HERA machine. The Hera losses are caused by a variety of sources in addition to beam gas scattering or IP interactions. Initially, the beam lifetime at HERA was too short to obtain satisfactory integrated luminosities. Subsequently, through careful attention to detail, the beam lifetime was increased to > 20 hours. Even with these changes, present loss rates provide the required intensity onto an internal target. The Tevatron and SPS proton anti-proton colliders have had similar experiences with their investigations of loss rates and also find that beam lifetimes may be substantially shorter than expected solely from beam gas and IP interactions. This paper proposes deliberately introducing controlled errors li

The Trotter Step Size Required for Accurate Quantum Simulation of Quantum Chemistry  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The simulation of molecules is a widely anticipated application of quantum computers. However, recent studies \\cite{WBCH13a,HWBT14a} have cast a shadow on this hope by revealing that the complexity in gate count of such simulations increases with the number of spin orbitals $N$ as $N^8$, which becomes prohibitive even for molecules of modest size $N\\sim 100$. This study was partly based on a scaling analysis of the Trotter step required for an ensemble of random artificial molecules. Here, we revisit this analysis and find instead that the scaling is closer to $N^6$ in worst case for real model molecules we have studied, indicating that the random ensemble fails to accurately capture the statistical properties of real-world molecules. Actual scaling may be significantly better than this due to averaging effects. We then present an alternative simulation scheme and show that it can sometimes outperform existing schemes, but that this possibility depends crucially on the details of the simulated molecule. We obtain further improvements using a version of the coalescing scheme of \\cite{WBCH13a}; this scheme is based on using different Trotter steps for different terms. The method we use to bound the complexity of simulating a given molecule is efficient, in contrast to the approach of \\cite{WBCH13a,HWBT14a} which relied on exponentially costly classical exact simulation.

The main result is a programme in which one can track the first steps of virtual mammography. On the one hand, our modelling enables addition of structures that represent different tissues, muscles and glands in the breast. On the other hand, we shall validate and implement it by means of laboratory tests with phantoms. To the best of our knowledge, these two characteristics do confer originality to our research. This is because their interrelation seems not to be properly established elsewhere yet. We conclude that our model reproduces the same shapes and measurements really taken from the volunteer's breasts.

Our Next Two Steps for Fukushima Daiichi Muon Tomography  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

After the vast disasters caused by the great earthquake and tsunami in eastern Japan, we proposed applying our Muon Tomography (MT) technique to help and improve the emergency situation at Fukushima Daiichi using cosmic-ray muons. A reactor-tomography team was formed at LANL which was supported by the Laboratory as a response to a request by the former Japanese Prime Minister, Naoto Kan. Our goal is to help the Japanese people and support remediation of the reactors. At LANL, we have carried out a proof-of-principle technical demonstration and simulation studies that established the feasibility of MT to image a reactor core. This proposal covers the next two critical steps for Fukushima Daiichi Muon Imaging: (1) undertake case study mock-up experiments of Fukushima Daiichi, and (2) system optimization. We requested funding to the US and Japanese government to assess damage of reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. The two steps will bring our project to the 'ready-to-go' level.

A complete CAD/CAM/CNC solution for STEP-compliant manufacturing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract STEP-NC or ISO 14649 is the next generation of data models between CAD/CAM and CNC systems. After a decade of investigation, the STEP-NC technology is still under developed. The lack of a complete CAD/CAM/CNC prototype system with full bidirectional data flow hinders the improvement of STEP-NC. This paper proposes a complete CAD/CAM/CNC solution for STEP-compliant manufacturing, so as to explore the functionalities and emphases of STEP-NC technologies. Frameworks of individual CAD/CAM and CNC systems are illustrated in detail. Architectures of STEP-compliant CAD/CAM and CNC systems are studied and several criteria are summarized. Finally, this paper proposes a complete prototype STEP-compliant solution, which consists of a secondary developed STEP-compliant CAD/CAM system on the CATIA platform and an open structured STEP-compliant CNC system.

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An apparatus and method are disclosed for single-stepping coherence events in a multiprocessor system under software control in order to monitor the behavior of a memory coherence mechanism. Single-stepping coherence events in a multiprocessor system is made possible by adding one or more step registers. By accessing these step registers, one or more coherence requests are processed by the multiprocessor system. The step registers determine if the snoop unit will operate by proceeding in a normal execution mode, or operate in a single-step mode.

Ealick Research Group Ealick Research Group Cornell researchers take step in deciphering what proteins look like through discovery of new family member important in making DNA Nov. 3, 2004 ITHACA, N.Y. -- Cornell University researchers, who are trying to understand how proteins evolve and function by looking at their structural features, have uncovered the crystal structure of a protein involved in making the building blocks of DNA correctly. The protein is AIRs kinase, and to the researchers' surprise, its shape is similar to other members of the riboside kinase family, proteins that are important in making DNA and RNA, the molecules that make up genes. As a result, the research group now has nine members of the riboside kinase family that are thought to have evolved from a common protein ancestor.

Identification of the Sequence of Steps Intrinsic to Spheromak Formation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A planar coaxial electrostatic helicity source is used for studying the relaxation process intrinsic to spheromak formation Experimental observations reveal that spheromak formation involves: (1) breakdown and creation of a number of distinct arched filamentary plasma?filled flux loops that span from cathode to anode gas nozzles (2) merging of these loops to form a central column (3) jet?like expansion of the central column (4) kink instability of the central column (5) conversion of toroidal flux to poloidal flux by the kink instability. Steps 1 and 3 indicate that spheromak formation involves an MHD pumping of plasma from the gas nozzles into the magnetic flux tube linking the nozzles. In order to measure this pumping the gas puffing system has been modified to permit simultaneous injection of different gas species into the two ends of the flux tube linking the wall. Gated CCD cameras with narrow?band optical filters are used to track the pumped flows.

Design of a variable reluctance asymmetric stepping millimotor  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper reports on the design, simulation, and preliminary testing of a three phase variable reluctance stepping motor. This motor is pancake-shaped with an overall outside diameter of 8 mm and a height of 3 mm. The outside diameter of the rotor is 4.7 mm. The rotor and stators occupy 2 mm of the height with the remaining 1 mm reserved for a 6:1 planetary gear reductor. The rotor and stators were constructed of Hyperco 50 using conventional miniature machining. The reductor was assembled using copper and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) components that were constructed using the LIGA (Lithographic Galvanoformung Abformung) microfabrication process. The maximum measured stall torque of the motor without the reductor is 0.47mNm at 4W and the maximum speed is 2,400 rpm.

Diagnostic and Prognostic Models for Generator Step-Up Transformers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In 2014, the online monitoring (OLM) of active components project under the Light Water Reactor Sustainability program at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) focused on diagnostic and prognostic capabilities for generator step-up transformers. INL worked with subject matter experts from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to augment and revise the GSU fault signatures previously implemented in the Electric Power Research Institute’s (EPRI’s) Fleet-Wide Prognostic and Health Management (FW-PHM) Suite software. Two prognostic models were identified and implemented for GSUs in the FW-PHM Suite software. INL and EPRI demonstrated the use of prognostic capabilities for GSUs. The complete set of fault signatures developed for GSUs in the Asset Fault Signature Database of the FW-PHM Suite for GSUs is presented in this report. Two prognostic models are described for paper insulation: the Chendong model for degree of polymerization, and an IEEE model that uses a loading profile to calculates life consumption based on hot spot winding temperatures. Both models are life consumption models, which are examples of type II prognostic models. Use of the models in the FW-PHM Suite was successfully demonstrated at the 2014 August Utility Working Group Meeting, Idaho Falls, Idaho, to representatives from different utilities, EPRI, and the Halden Research Project.

Two-step fuel oxidation to improve efficiency in the conversion of chemical energy into work  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is well known that in the conversion of chemical exergy into work a remarkable percentage of exergy is destroyed during the combustion process. Obviously, hypothetical reversible combustions, as proposed in some papers, are not to be taken into account. On the contrary, recent studies of a new system to increase the efficiency of the conversion of chemical exergy into work appear interesting. The proposed system includes a gas turbine system with chemical-looping combustion where a metal oxide is used as an oxygen carrier. Instead of conventional combustion, the oxidation of fuel is carried out in a two-step reaction. The first step is an endothermic reaction in which a metal oxide is reduced by fuel at low temperature and the second step an exothermic reaction in which the products of the former reaction are subjected to oxidation. The thermal energy of low exergy value in the exhaust gas is employed to drive the endothermic reaction. Various systems have been proposed and tested. The power-generation system (called CLSA), with chemical-looping combustion and air saturation seems the most convenient. When only saturated air is used, exergy destruction becomes small in the middle- and low temperature range. However, the inefficiency in the high temperature range remains. On the other hand, when only chemical-looping combustion is used, exergy destruction becomes small in the high- and middle temperature range. However, the inefficiency in the low-temperature range is now not removed. When both technologies are combined, exergy efficiency may become much greater than that obtained from each individual process. The synergistic effect of combining these two technologies is analogous to the improvement achieved when a combined system was designed as a new power-generation system by combining a gas turbine with a steam turbine. For a model system, an exergy efficiency of 53.3% is obtained when the process water is recovered and a value of about 55% is obtained when water is not recovered. A significant advantage of the CLSA system is that CO{sub 2} can be easily recovered. The CO{sub 2} produced in the reduction reactor is not diluted by air since air and fuel enter different reactors. This is quite different from a traditional combustor in which CO{sub 2} is diluted in air and hence cannot be concentrated and separated economically. In the CLSA system, since the exhaust gas from the reduction reactor is composed only of high-concentration CO{sub 2} and water vapor, CO{sub 2} can be easily recovered by cooling the exhaust gas and removing the liquid water, i.e. very little energy expenditure is required for recovering CO{sub 2} from the exhaust gas. The recovered CO{sub 2} may be utilized, e.g., in artificial photosynthesis, whereas a simple recovery without any utilization but only to reduce greenhouse effect seems questionable. Another significant characteristic of CLSA system is that the most of the water vapor in the exhaust gas can be recovered by cooling the exhaust gas from the oxidation reactor. In chemical-looping combustion, fuel is not burned directly and the gas discharged from the oxidation reactor has no impurities from the fuel. Hence, there will be no corrosion of the apparatus when the exhaust gas is cooled to a very low temperature and low cost materials can be utilized for the heat exchangers. Because of the recycling of the most part of water, the CLSA system can be used in locations with limited water resources. Chemical-looping combustion system can be also combined with an integrated coal gasification and this topic appears very interesting. Indeed, to achieve better conversion efficiencies and lower pollutant emissions in power plants, new technologies that combines coal gasification with a gas turbine based combined cycle have been extensively studied worldwide.

A bench scale study of a one-step dissolution process for treating contaminated fiberglass filters  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

High efficiency mist eliminators (HEME) and high efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) made of High fiberglass will be used at the Savannah River Site (SRS) to remove particulate matter from offgases generated during melter feed preparation and vitrification of high-level radioactive waste (HLW) at the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF). These filters will be contaminated with high-level, radioactive species and also with various high-boiling organic compounds. For this reason, a process was developed at the Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) that will dissolve the spent filters so that the residues may be recycled to the HLW tanks for eventual vitrification. This process involves boiling the filters sequentially in NaOH, HN0{sub 3} and NaOH, while contained in a stainless steal wire mesh frame assembly. The objective of this communication is to present some of the original preliminary work done by Ritter on the simple one-step dissolution process. The results from six bench-scale experiments are reported for the dissolution of an organically-fouled sample of HEME obtained from the Integrated DWPF Melter (IDMS) offgas filtration system. The preliminary effects of filter packing density, air sparging versus rotating basket agitation, fouling, and adding Triton X-405 as a dispersing agent are reported.

Implementing multi-step chemical kinetics models in opposed-flow flame spread over cellulose and a comparison to single-step chemistry  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Multi-step, gas-phase chemical kinetics are introduced into flame spread modeling efforts. An unsteady multi-step, gas-phase kinetics model both with and without steady-state species assumptions, and including nonunit Lewis number, is compared with a model including a single, finite-rate gas-phase reaction, which has been the usual approach in flame spread modeling. Laminar diffusion flames over a thin fuel in an opposing O{sub 2}/N{sub 2} flow are considered with the solution in two-dimensional space of momentum, energy, and 12 gas-phase species. Results for the multi-step models show detailed flame structure in terms of species and heat release distributions throughout the flame and the role of chemical kinetics as a controlling mechanism in flame spread. Of particular interest is the potential of multi-step chemical kinetics in solutions at near-extinction limit conditions. While the incorporation of nonunit Le alone affords more detailed species transport, in high opposing flows it was found to give only minor structural differences form the single-step unit Le model. The multi-step chemistry allows for the gas kinetics to be self-adjusting to environmental conditions. As a result, the distribution of endothermicity and exothermicity throughout the flame and for particular reversible reactions is found to be a function of the flow environment, which overcomes a major drawback of single-step models, namely a fixed heat of combustion independent of environmental conditions, or one that must be determined separately from the model itself.

Atmospheric-pressure argon/oxygen plasma-discharge source with a stepped electrode  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The nonequilibrium glow discharge in argon mixed with oxygen at atmospheric pressure was generated in a parallel plate reactor with a stepped electrode powered by a 13.56 MHz radio-frequency power supplier. The stepped-electrode reactor consists of a narrow and wide gap structure. A strong electric field occurred at the narrow gap region preionizes Ar/O{sub 2} gas and assists to generate a large volumetric plasma in the wide gap region. Therefore, the stepped-electrode reactor makes it easy to operate Ar/O{sub 2} glow discharge, providing a stable, uniform, and broad plasma jet at atmospheric pressure.

A model of stepping kinetics for rotary enzymes. Application to the F1-ATPase  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Our simple kinetic model, based on the classic “binding change mechanism”, describes the stepping kinetics for the rotary enzyme motors. The model shows that the cooperative interactions between active sites in the motor enzyme F1-ATPase induce the stepping product release. This phenomenon results from non-harmonic oscillations in the enzyme forms. The found rate constants, corresponding to the stepping phenomenon, are close to the rate constants known for the F1-ATPase. The duration of dwells during the product release is shown to depend on the ATP concentration in accordance with the known experimental data.

In this comparative density functional theory and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study on the interaction of oxygen with stepped Pt(111) surfaces, we show that both the initial adsorption and oxidation occur at the steps rather than terraces. An equivalent behavior was observed for the oxide formation at higher chemical potentials, where, after the formation of a one-dimensional PtO{sub 2}-type oxide at the steps, similar oxide chains form on the (111) terraces, indicating the initial stages of bulk oxide formation.

Design and optimization of stepped austempered ductile iron using characterization techniques  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Conventional characterization techniques such as dilatometry, X-ray diffraction and metallography were used to select and optimize temperatures and times for conventional and stepped austempering. Austenitization and conventional austempering time was selected when the dilatometry graphs showed a constant expansion value. A special heat color-etching technique was applied to distinguish between the untransformed austenite and high carbon stabilized austenite which had formed during the treatments. Finally, it was found that carbide precipitation was absent during the stepped austempering in contrast to conventional austempering, on which carbide evidence was found. - Highlights: • Dilatometry helped to establish austenitization and austempering parameters. • Untransformed austenite was present even for longer processing times. • Ausferrite formed during stepped austempering caused important reinforcement effect. • Carbide precipitation was absent during stepped treatment.

A density functional theory study of atomic steps on stoichiometric rutile TiO{sub 2}(110)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We present a detailed theoretical study of the energetics of stoichiometric steps on the (110) surface of rutile TiO{sub 2}. Step structures running along the ?001?, ?11{sup ¯}1?, and ?11{sup ¯}0? directions including bulk-terminations and possible reconstructions have been considered. A robust method for extracting surface and step energies of vicinal surfaces, where the surface energies converge slowly with respect to slab thickness, is outlined and used. Based on the calculated step energies a 2D Wulff-construction is presented from which it can be concluded that in equilibrium only oxygen terminated steps running along the ?001? directions and reconstructed steps along the ?11{sup ¯}1? directions should be present. Finally it is found that under conditions of stoichiometry the reconstructed ?11{sup ¯}1? steps should be more than twice as abundant as oxygen terminated ?001? steps.

Use of aluminum phosphate as the dehydration catalyst in single step dimethyl ether process  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention pertains to a process for the coproduction of methanol and dimethyl ether (DME) directly from a synthesis gas in a single step (hereafter, the "single step DME process"). In this process, the synthesis gas comprising hydrogen and carbon oxides is contacted with a dual catalyst system comprising a physical mixture of a methanol synthesis catalyst and a methanol dehydration catalyst. The present invention is an improvement to this process for providing an active and stable catalyst system. The improvement comprises the use of an aluminum phosphate based catalyst as the methanol dehydration catalyst. Due to its moderate acidity, such a catalyst avoids the coke formation and catalyst interaction problems associated with the conventional dual catalyst systems taught for the single step DME process.

Energy price prediction multi-step ahead using hybrid model in the Brazilian market  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper proposes a new hybrid approach for short-term energy price prediction. This approach combines auto-regressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) and neural network (NN) models in a cascaded structure and uses explanatory variables. A two step procedure is applied. In the first step, the selected explanatory variables are predicted. In the second one, the energy prices are forecasted by using the explanatory variables prediction. Further, the proposed model considers a multi-step ahead price prediction (12 weeks-ahead) and is applied to Brazilian market, which adopts a cost-based centralized dispatch with unique characteristics of price behavior. The results show good ability to predict spikes and satisfactory accuracy according to error measures and tail loss test when compared with traditional techniques. Thus, the model can be an attractive tool to mitigate risks in purchasing power.

Low resistive p-type GaN using two-step rapid thermal annealing processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Two-step thermal annealing processes were investigated for electrical activation of magnesium- doped galliumnitride layers. The samples were studied by room-temperature Hall measurements and photoluminescence spectroscopy at 16 K. After an annealing process consisting of a short-term step at 960?°C followed by a 600?°C dwell step for 5 min a resistivity as low as 0.84 ??cm is achieved for the activated sample which improves the results achieved by standard annealing (800?°C for 10 min) by 25% in resistivity and 100% in free hole concentration.Photoluminescence shows a peak centered at 3.0 eV which is typical for Mg-doped samples with high free hole concentrations.

Step-Orientation-Dependent Oxidation: From 1D to 2D Oxides  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using scanning tunneling microscopy and density functional theory, we have studied the initial oxidation of Rh(111) surfaces with two types of straight steps, having {100} and {111} microfacets. The one-dimensional (1D) oxide initially formed at the steps acts as a barrier impeding formation of the 2D oxide on the (111) terrace behind it. We demonstrate that the details of the structure of the 1D oxide govern the rate of 2D oxidation and discuss implications for oxidation of nanoparticles.

The two-step cascade method previously used in neutron capture experiments is now applied to a proton capture reaction. The spectrum of two-step cascades populating the first 2+ level of 60Ni has been measured with 59Co(p,2gamma)60Ni reaction. The simulation technique used for the spectrum analysis allows one to reveal the range of possible shapes of both E1 and M1 gamma-strength functions. The low-energy enhancement previously observed in 3He induced reactions is seen to appear in M1 strength functions of 60Ni.

Design and feasibility study of a microgeneration system to obtain renewable energy from tidal currents  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Tidal energy to obtain electrical energy is yet an unexploited renewable energy. Existing generator designs and prototypes are not feasible due to the high investment conditioned by their high rated powers and off-shore locations. In addition these prototypes are not readily available. This investigation presents a design of a microgeneration system with vertical axis microturbines. The design of the microturbines utilizes off-the-shelf electronic components thus reducing the initial investment. The nominal data for selection of power electronic components and the total energy that can be obtained in a year are calculated. The investigation also studies the feasibility of an 80?kW microgeneration system to be applied in Spain taking advantage of the actual electricity prices. The feasibility study quantifies the influence of the parameters: initial investment tidal current speed operation hours turbine efficiency price of electricity and number of microturbines obtaining the limiting values of the suitable scenarios.

High temperature superconductor step-edge Josephson junctions using Ti-Ca-Ba-Cu-O  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A process is disclosed for formulating non-hysteretic and hysteretic Josephson junctions using HTS materials which results in junctions having the ability to operate at high temperatures while maintaining high uniformity and quality. The non-hysteretic Josephson junction is formed by step-etching a LaAlO[sub 3] crystal substrate and then depositing a thin film of TlCaBaCuO on the substrate, covering the step, and forming a grain boundary at the step and a subsequent Josephson junction. Once the non-hysteretic junction is formed the next step to form the hysteretic Josephson junction is to add capacitance to the system. In the current embodiment, this is accomplished by adding a thin dielectric layer, LaA1O[sub 3], followed by a cap layer of a normal metal where the cap layer is formed by first depositing a thin layer of titanium (Ti) followed by a layer of gold (Au). The dielectric layer and the normal metal cap are patterned to the desired geometry. 8 figs.

In the current embodiment, this is accomplished by adding a thin dielectric layer, LaA1O.sub.3, followed by a cap layer of a normal metal where the cap layer is formed by first depositing a thin layer of titanium (Ti) followed by a layer of gold (Au). The dielectric layer and the normal metal cap are patterned to the desired geometry.

Evaluating ozone dose for AOC removal in two-step GAC filters  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Upgrading an existing post-ozonation plant with two-step granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration for assimilable organic carbon (AOC) removal was studied. The effects of ozone dose on AOC formation and its removal in the subsequent two-step GAC filtration was studied using chemically pretreated 2 to 14° C humic lake water. Two parallel pilot-plant trains with different ozone doses (0 to 1.2 mgO3/mgTOC) and a shortterm ozonation study were performed. The optimum ozone dose for maximum AOC formation was 0.4–0.5 mgO3/mgTOC. The AOC-P17 of ozonated water was three-fold higher and AOC-NOX over ten-fold higher than in non-ozonated water, while the following biofiltration (first step) removed 51 % and 72 % of AOC-P17 and AOC-NOX, respectively. The adsorber (second step) contributed to less than 10% of the overall AOC reduction. It appeared that biofiltration is a feasible method in upgrading water treatment plants for AOC removal even when treating cold humic waters, while the subsequent adsorber seems to have less significance for AOC removal.

Invited Review Article: Measurement uncertainty of linear phase-stepping algorithms  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Phase retrieval techniques are widely used in optics, imaging and electronics. Originating in signal theory, they were introduced to interferometry around 1970. Over the years, many robust phase-stepping techniques have been developed that minimize specific experimental influence quantities such as phase step errors or higher harmonic components of the signal. However, optimizing a technique for a specific influence quantity can compromise its performance with regard to others. We present a consistent quantitative analysis of phase measurement uncertainty for the generalized linear phase stepping algorithm with nominally equal phase stepping angles thereby reviewing and generalizing several results that have been reported in literature. All influence quantities are treated on equal footing, and correlations between them are described in a consistent way. For the special case of classical N-bucket algorithms, we present analytical formulae that describe the combined variance as a function of the phase angle values. For the general Arctan algorithms, we derive expressions for the measurement uncertainty averaged over the full 2{pi}-range of phase angles. We also give an upper bound for the measurement uncertainty which can be expressed as being proportional to an algorithm specific factor. Tabular compilations help the reader to quickly assess the uncertainties that are involved with his or her technique.

Exploratory Research on Novel Coal Liquefaction Concept - Task 2: Evaluation of Process Steps.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A novel direct coal liquefaction technology is being investigated in a program being conducted by CONSOL Inc. with the University of Kentucky, Center for Applied Energy Research and LDP Associates under DOE Contract DE-AC22-95PC95050. The novel concept consists of a new approach to coal liquefaction chemistry which avoids some of the inherent limitations of current high-temperature thermal liquefaction processes. The chemistry employed is based on hydride ion donation to solubilize coal at temperatures (350-400{degrees}C) significantly lower than those typically used in conventional coal liquefaction. The process concept being explored consists of two reaction stages. In the first stage, the coal is solubilized by hydride ion donation. In the second, the products are catalytically upgraded to acceptable refinery feedstocks. The program explores not only the initial solubilization step, but integration of the subsequent processing steps, including an interstage solids-separation step, to produce distillate products. A unique feature of the process concept is that many of the individual reaction steps can be decoupled, because little recycle around the liquefaction system is expected. This allows for considerable latitude in the process design. Furthermore, this has allowed for each key element in the process to be explored independently in laboratory work conducted under Task 2 of the program.
