Antiguided fiber ribbon laser  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

The invention is a ribbon of an optical material with a plurality of cores that run along its length. The plurality of cores includes lasing impurity doped cores in an alternating spaced arrangement with index-modifying impurity doped cores. The ribbon comprises an index of refraction that is substantially equal to or greater than the indices of refraction of said array of lasing impurity doped cores. Index-increasing impurity doped cores promote antiguiding and leaky modes which provide more robust single "supermode" operation.

Graphene nano-ribbon waveguides  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Graphene as a one-atom-thick platform for infrared metamaterial plays an important role in optical science and engineering. Here we study the unique properties of some plasmonic waveguides based on graphene nano-ribbon. It is found that a graphene ribbon of finite width leads to the occurrence of coupled edge mode. The single-mode region of a single freestanding graphene ribbon is identified at a fixed frequency of 30 THz. A low-loss waveguide structure, consisting of a graphene layer, a silica buffer layer and silicon substrate is proposed to reduce the propagation loss and obtain a high figure of merit for future integration of waveguide devices. Furthermore, two coupled ribbon configurations, namely, side-side coupling and top-bottom coupling, are investigated. As a device example, a nano-ring cavity of ultra-small size is designed.

CIRCULAR RIBBON FLARES AND HOMOLOGOUS JETS  

SciTech Connect

Solar flare emissions in the chromosphere often appear as elongated ribbons on both sides of the magnetic polarity inversion line (PIL), which has been regarded as evidence of a typical configuration of magnetic reconnection. However, flares having a circular ribbon have rarely been reported, although it is expected in the fan-spine magnetic topology involving reconnection at a three-dimensional (3D) coronal null point. We present five circular ribbon flares with associated surges, using high-resolution and high-cadence H{alpha} blue wing observations obtained from the recently digitized films of Big Bear Solar Observatory. In all the events, a central parasitic magnetic field is encompassed by the opposite polarity, forming a circular PIL traced by filament material. Consequently, a flare kernel at the center is surrounded by a circular flare ribbon. The four homologous jet-related flares on 1991 March 17 and 18 are of particular interest, as (1) the circular ribbons brighten sequentially, with cospatial surges, rather than simultaneously, (2) the central flare kernels show an intriguing 'round-trip' motion and become elongated, and (3) remote brightenings occur at a region with the same magnetic polarity as the central parasitic field and are co-temporal with a separate phase of flare emissions. In another flare on 1991 February 25, the circular flare emission and surge activity occur successively, and the event could be associated with magnetic flux cancellation across the circular PIL. We discuss the implications of these observations combining circular flare ribbons, homologous jets, and remote brightenings for understanding the dynamics of 3D magnetic restructuring.

CORROSION STUDY OF AMORPHOUS METAL RIBBONS  

SciTech Connect

Corrosion costs the Department of Defense billions of dollars every year, with an immense quantity of material in various structures undergoing corrosion. For example, in addition to fluid and seawater piping, ballast tanks, and propulsions systems, approximately 345 million square feet of structure aboard naval ships and crafts require costly corrosion control measures. The use of advanced corrosion-resistant materials to prevent the continuous degradation of this massive surface area would be extremely beneficial. The potential advantages of amorphous metals have been recognized for some time [Latanison 1985]. Iron-based corrosion-resistant, amorphous-metal coatings under development may prove important for maritime applications [Farmer et al. 2005]. Such materials could also be used to coat the entire outer surface of containers for the transportation and long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel, or to protect welds and heat affected zones, thereby preventing exposure to environments that might cause stress corrosion cracking [Farmer et al. 1991, 2000a, 2000b]. In the future, it may be possible to substitute such high-performance iron-based materials for more-expensive nickel-based alloys, thereby enabling cost savings in a wide variety of industrial applications. It should be noted that thermal-spray ceramic coatings have also been investigated for such applications [Haslam et al. 2005]. This report focuses on the corrosion resistance of iron-based melt-spun amorphous metal ribbons. Melt-Spun ribbon is made by rapid solidification--a stream of molten metal is dropped onto a spinning copper wheel, a process that enables the manufacture of amorphous metals which are unable to be manufactured by conventional cold or hot rolling techniques. The study of melt-spun ribbon allows quick evaluation of amorphous metals corrosion resistance. The melt-spun ribbons included in this study are DAR40, SAM7, and SAM8, SAM1X series, and SAM2X series. The SAM1X series ribbons have Ni additions in increments of 1, 3, 5, and 7 atom percent, to DAR40. For example, 1X7 means a composition of 7-atom% Ni added to 93-atom% of DAR40. Similarly, The SAM1X series ribbons have Mo additions in increments of 1, 3, 5, and 7 atom percent, to DAR40. For example, 2X3 means a composition of 3-atom% Mo added to 97-atom% of DAR40. SAM7 ribbon is a Fe-Cr-Mo-Y-C-B metal glass, commonly called Alloy1651. SAM8 is SAM7 with an additional 3-atom% W. The nominal compositions of DAR40 and SAM7 are listed in Table 1. SAM7 ribbon is extremely brittle and hard to manufactured by melt-spinning, only limited number of SAM7 ribbons were tested.

Graphics Turing Test  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We define a Graphics Turing Test to measure graphics performance in a similar manner to the definition of the traditional Turing Test. To pass the test one needs to reach a computational scale, the Graphics Turing Scale, for which Computer Generated Imagery becomes comparatively indistinguishable from real images while also being interactive. We derive an estimate for this computational scale which, although large, is within reach of todays supercomputers. We consider advantages and disadvantages of various computer systems designed to pass the Graphics Turing Test. Finally we discuss commercial applications from the creation of such a system, in particular Interactive Cinema. Defining graphics computing scales can be difficult. Traditional methods such as counting triangles drawn per second can be misleading especially if a large per-centage of the computing power is going into shading code or a physics simulation which can be involved in making the graphics image realistic. More than fifty years ago Alan Turing faced a similar challenge in evaluating the

String stabilized ribbon growth a method for seeding same  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

This invention is a method of initiating or seeding the growth of a crystalline or polycrystalline ribbon by the String Stabilized Ribbon Growth Method. The method for seeding the crystal growth comprises contacting a melt surface with a seed and two strings used in edge stabilization. The wetted strings attach to the wetted seed as a result of the freezing of the liquid melt. Upon drawing the seed, which is attached to the strings, away from the melt surface a melt liquid meniscus, a seed junction, and a growth interface forms. Further pulling of the attached seed causes a crystal ribbon to grow at the growth interface. The boundaries of the growing ribbon are: at the top the seed junction, at the bottom the freezing boundary of the melt liquid meniscus, and at the edges frozen-in strings.

Defect structure of web silicon ribbon  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Web silicon ribbon has recently emerged as a material for the production of high efficiency solar cells. Since defects introduced during growth may influence locally minority carrier recombination rates, there is now a need to examine the defect structure in detail and to correlate it with electrical activity. This work describes initial observations made on web material by EBIC and HVEM. Although EBIC investigations have shown that dislocations emerging at the web surface enhance minority carrier recombination rates, their density is low enough (typically 10/sup 5/cm/sup -2/) to have only a small effect on the efficiency of the material as a solar cell. Since a condition for dendritic web growth is that the dendrites contain at least two twin boundaries it is usual to find that some of these boundaries extend into the web. These boundaries are formed parallel to the (111) growth surface and are found to be sites of strong electrical activity. HVEM has been used to study the defect structure at the twin boundary. Two types of dislocation networks lying on different (111) planes have been observed, presumably corresponding to two adjacent twin boundaries.

We discuss the relationship between the graphical amplitudes T, C, P, ... used to parameterize nonleptonic B decay amplitudes, and matrix elements of operators in the soft-collinear effective theory (SCET) at leading order in \\Lambda/m_b. Using the SU(3) flavor symmetry of the weak Hamiltonian we derive all-order constraints on the electroweak penguin contributions to the Wilson coefficients of SCET operators.

Graphical Calculus for the Double Affine Q-Dependent Braid Group  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We define a double affine $Q$-dependent braid group. This group is constructed by appending to the braid group a set of operators $Q_i$, before extending it to an affine $Q$-dependent braid group. We show specifically that the elliptic braid group and the double affine Hecke algebra (DAHA) can be obtained as quotient groups. Complementing this we present a pictorial representation of the double affine $Q$-dependent braid group based on ribbons living in a toroid. We show that in this pictorial representation we can fully describe any DAHA. Specifically, we graphically describe the parameter $q$ upon which this algebra is dependent and show that in this particular representation $q$ corresponds to a twist in the ribbon.

Graphical Representation of Supersymmetry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A graphical representation of supersymmetry is presented. It clearly expresses the chiral flow appearing in SUSY quantities, by representing spinors by {\\it directed lines} (arrows). The chiral suffixes are expressed by the directions (up, down, left, right) of the arrows. The SL(2,C) invariants are represented by {\\it wedges}. Both the Weyl spinor and the Majorana spinor are treated. We are free from the complicated symbols of spinor suffixes. The method is applied to the 5D supersymmetry. Many applications are expected. The result is suitable for coding a computer program and is highly expected to be applicable to various SUSY theories (including Supergravity) in various dimensions.

Microcrustaceans (Branchipoda and Copepoda) of Wetland Impoundments on the Savannah River Site, Aiken, South Carolina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The United States Department of Energys Savannah River Site (SRS) in Aiken, Allendale, and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina, contains an abundance of freshwater wetlands and impoundments. Four large impoundments, as well as several small, abandoned farm and mill ponds, and about 400 Carolina bays and other small, isolated depression wetland ponds are located within the 893 km2 area of the SRS. Crustaceans of the orders Branchiopoda and Copepoda are nearly ubiquitous in these water bodies. Although small in size, these organisms are often very abundant. They consequently play an important trophic role in freshwater food webs supporting ?sh, larval salamanders, larval insects, and numerous other animals, aquatic and terrestrial. This report provides an introduction to the free-living microcrustaceans of lentic water bodies on the SRS and a comprehensive list of species known to occur there. Occurrence patterns are summarized from three extensive survey studies, supplemented with other published and unpublished records. In lieu of a key, we provide a guide to taxonomic resources and notes on undescribed species. Taxa covered include the orders Cladocera, Anostraca, Laevicaudata, and Spinicaudata of the Subclass Branchiopoda and the Superorders Calanoida and Cyclopoida of Subclass Copepoda. Microcrustaceans of the Superorder Harpacticoida of the Subclass Copepoda and Subclass Ostracoda are also often present in lentic water bodies. They are excluded from this report because they have not received much study at the species level on the SRS.

Development of computer graphics  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this project was to screen and evaluate three graphics packages as to their suitability for displaying concentration contour graphs. The information to be displayed is from computer code simulations describing air-born contaminant transport. The three evaluation programs were MONGO (John Tonry, MIT, Cambridge, MA, 02139), Mathematica (Wolfram Research Inc.), and NCSA Image (National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). After a preliminary investigation of each package, NCSA Image appeared to be significantly superior for generating the desired concentration contour graphs. Hence subsequent work and this report describes the implementation and testing of NCSA Image on both an Apple MacII and Sun 4 computers. NCSA Image includes several utilities (Layout, DataScope, HDF, and PalEdit) which were used in this study and installed on Dr. Ted Yamada`s Mac II computer. Dr. Yamada provided two sets of air pollution plume data which were displayed using NCSA Image. Both sets were animated into a sequential expanding plume series.

The circularity and stability of the IBEX energetic neutral atom (ENA) ribbon  

SciTech Connect

The first sky map of energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) from the outer heliosphere measured from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer revealed the ribbon, a remarkable circular arc of enhanced ENA emission [McComas, et all, 2009] narrow in width [Fuselier, et all, 2009] and centered at ecliptic coordinate ({lambda},{beta}) = (221{sup o},39{sup o}) [Funsten et al., 2009]. The ribbon is a key signature for understanding the interaction of the heliosphere and the interstellar cloud through which we are moving [McComas, et al., 2009; Schwadron et al., 2010]. At each energy passband of the IBEX-Hi neutral atom imager, we compare the circular metrics of the ribbon in the different ENA sky maps, including the ribbon center, opening angle from the ribbon center to the ribbon, and ribbon circularity. The values of these parameters do not systematically change between maps within statistical uncertainty, suggesting that the dynamics that govern the ribbon structure do not vary on a global scale over the time frame of the maps. Assuming the ribbon ENAs of all energies originate from the same source, the time of travel of lower energy ENAs is nearly twice that of higher energy ENAs measured by IBEX. Thus, because the lower energy ions are characteristic of the ribbon structure earlier in time than the higher energy ions, we infer that this stability extends over a longer time period than that used to acquire the maps.

Compact multiwavelength transmitter module for multimode fiber optic ribbon cable  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A compact multiwavelength transmitter module for multimode fiber optic ribbon cable, which couples light from an M.times.N array of emitters onto N fibers, where the M wavelength may be distributed across two or more vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) chips, and combining emitters and multiplexer into a compact package that is compatible with placement on a printed circuit board. A key feature is bringing together two emitter arrays fabricated on different substrates--each array designed for a different wavelength--into close physical proximity. Another key feature is to compactly and efficiently combine the light from two or more clusters of optical emitters, each in a different wavelength band, into a fiber ribbon.

Extending Document Summarization to Information Graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Information graphics (non-pictorial graphics such as bar charts or line graphs) are an important component of multimedia documents. Often such graphics convey information that is not contained elsewhere in the document. Thus document summarization must be extended to include summarization of information graphics. This paper addresses our work on graphic summarization. It argues that the message that the graphic designer intended to convey must play a major role in determining the content of the summary, and it outlines our approach to identifying this intended message and using it to construct the summary. 1

Silicon ribbon growth by a capillary action shaping technique. Quarterly technical progress report number 7  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The crystal-growth method under investigation is a capillary action shaping technique. Meniscus shaping for the desired ribbon geometry occurs at the vertex of a wettable die. As ribbon growth depletes the melt meniscus, capillary action supplies replacement material. Progress in 50-mm-wide ribbon growth is detailed. Over 11 meters of uniform 50-mm-wide ribbon have been grown this quarter. Fuller advantage has been taken of the potential benefits of high melt meniscus (HMM) growth. 50-mm ribbons less than 0.27 mm in thickness were produced with zero SiC particle density, smooth reflective surfaces, and lifetimes greater than 20 ..mu..sec for electrical charge carriers. It has also been demonstrated that quartz crucibles can be used through at least four melt-down cycles. A computer analysis model of competing sheet growth techniques is presented and discussed.

SLOW MAGNETOACOUSTIC WAVES IN TWO-RIBBON FLARES  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We demonstrate that disturbances observed to propagate along the axis of the arcade in two-ribbon solar flares at the speed of a few tens of km s{sup -1}, well below the Alfven and sound speeds, can be interpreted in terms of slow magnetoacoustic waves. The waves can propagate across the magnetic field, parallel to the magnetic neutral line, because of the wave-guiding effect due to the reflection from the footpoints. The perpendicular group speed of the perturbation is found to be a fraction of the sound speed, which is consistent with observations. The highest value of the group speed grows with the increase in the ratio of the sound and Alfven speeds. For a broad range of parameters, the highest value of the group speed corresponds to the propagation angle of 25 deg. - 28 deg. to the magnetic field. This effect can explain the temporal and spatial structure of quasi-periodic pulsations observed in two-ribbon flares.

Blasting, graphical interfaces and Unix  

SciTech Connect

A discrete element computer program, DMC (Distinct Motion Code) was developed to simulate blast-induced rock motion. To simplify the complex task of entering material and explosive design parameters as well as bench configuration, a full-featured graphical interface has been developed. DMC is currently executed on both Sun SPARCstation 2 and Sun SPARCstation 10 platforms and routinely used to model bench and crater blasting problems. This paper will document the design and development of the full-featured interface to DMC. The development of the interface will be tracked through the various stages, highlighting the adjustments made to allow the necessary parameters to be entered in terms and units that field blasters understand. The paper also discusses a novel way of entering non-integer numbers and the techniques necessary to display blasting parameters in an understandable visual manner. A video presentation will demonstrate the graphics interface and explains its use.

Silicon ribbon growth by a capillary action shaping technique. Quarterly technical progress report No. 2  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Progress during the second quarter of the contractual effort is described. The work performed related mainly to ribbon growth by a capillary action shaping technique and to ribbon characterization. Actual progress in the crystal growth area includes the evaluation of 10 potential die materials other than carbon and the process development for 25-mm-wide ribon. From the die study it is concluded that boron carbide, silicon carbide, and silicon nitride may warrant further investigation as die materials. Process development for 25-mm ribbon growth resulted in ribbons of superior surface quality. Potential ribbongrowth problems encountered and discussed include a boron doping anomaly and frozen-in stresses in ribbons. The characterization effort concentrated on the development of a solar-cell process to be used for ribbon characterization. Material requirements and detailed process procedures are given. Solar cells fabricated by this process are compared with commercially available solar cells and compare favorably. A transmission electron microscopy study of planar boundaries frequently observed in ribbon crystals is reported. (auth)

Shape Selection and Multi-stability in Helical Ribbons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Helical structures, almost ubiquitous in biological systems, have inspired the design and manufacturing of helical devices with applications in nanoelecromechanical systems (NEMS), morphing structures, optoelectronics, micro-robotics and drug delivery devices. Meanwhile, multi-stable structures, represented by the Venus flytrap and slap bracelet, have attracted increasing attention due to their applications in making artificial muscles, bio-inspired robots, deployable aerospace components and energy harvesting devices. Here we show that the mechanical anisotropy pertinent to helical deformation, together with geometric nonlinearity associated with multi-stability, can lead to novel selection principle of the geometric shape and multi-stability in spontaneous helical ribbons. Simple table-top experiments were also performed to illustrate the working principle. Our work will promote understanding of spontaneous curling, twisting, wrinkling of thin objects and their instabilities, and serve as a tool in developing functional structures and devices with tunable, morphing geometries and smart actuation mechanism that can be applied in a spectrum of areas.

Microcrustaceans (Branchiopoda and Copepoda) of Wetland Ponds and Impoundments on the Savannah River Site, Aiken, South Carolina  

SciTech Connect

The United States Department of Energy's Savannah River Site (SRS) in Aiken, Allendale, and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina, contains an abundance of freshwater wetlands and impoundments. Four large impoundments, as well as several small, abandoned farm and mill ponds, and about 400 Carolina bays and other small, isolated depression wetland ponds are located within the 893 km2 area of the SRS. Crustaceans of the orders Branchiopoda and Copepoda are nearly ubiquitous in these water bodies. Although small in size, these organisms are often very abundant. They consequently play an important trophic role in freshwater food webs supporting fish, larval salamanders, larval insects, and numerous other animals, aquatic and terrestrial. This report provides an introduction to the free-living microcrustaceans of lentic water bodies on the SRS and a comprehensive list of species known to occur there. Occurrence patterns are summarized from three extensive survey studies, supplemented with other published and unpublished records. In lieu of a key, we provide a guide to taxonomic resources and notes on undescribed species. Taxa covered include the orders Cladocera, Anostraca, Laevicaudata, and Spinicaudata of the Subclass Branchiopoda and the Superorders Calanoida and Cyclopoida of Subclass Copepoda. Microcrustaceans of the Superorder Harpacticoida of the Subclass Copepoda and Subclass Ostracoda are also often present in lentic water bodies. They are excluded from this report because they have not received much study at the species level on the SRS.

Visual Agents are software entities which assist people in performing graphical tasks. One useful and interesting graphical task is to make a textand -graphic record of a group meeting. When the recording is done live in view of the group on a large display, such as on a whiteboard, it is a performing art which can be called "Group Graphics. " During group graphics, collaboration is enhanced because the group members can see the record as it is being made, offering suggestions and corrections. And if graphic recording of this kind takes place on a large computer display, then visual agents can be brought into play. Presented in this paper is a visual agent which acts as a whiteboard assistant for group graphics, helping a person to graphically record the conversation and concepts of a working group on a large display. 1 Context: Performance Text-Graphics on the Big Screen The long term goal of this work has been to construct a visual medium which will support the improvisational crea...

SEPARATION OF THE INTERSTELLAR BOUNDARY EXPLORER RIBBON FROM GLOBALLY DISTRIBUTED ENERGETIC NEUTRAL ATOM FLUX  

SciTech Connect

The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) observes a remarkable feature, the IBEX ribbon, which has energetic neutral atom (ENA) flux over a narrow region {approx}20{sup 0} wide, a factor of 2-3 higher than the more globally distributed ENA flux. Here, we separate ENA emissions in the ribbon from the distributed flux by applying a transparency mask over the ribbon and regions of high emissions, and then solve for the distributed flux using an interpolation scheme. Our analysis shows that the energy spectrum and spatial distribution of the ribbon are distinct from the surrounding globally distributed flux. The ribbon energy spectrum shows a knee between {approx}1 and 4 keV, and the angular distribution is approximately independent of energy. In contrast, the distributed flux does not show a clear knee and more closely conforms to a power law over much of the sky. Consistent with previous analyses, the slope of the power law steepens from the nose to tail, suggesting a weaker termination shock toward the tail as compared to the nose. The knee in the energy spectrum of the ribbon suggests that its source plasma population is generated via a distinct physical process. Both the slope in the energy distribution of the distributed flux and the knee in the energy distribution of the ribbon are ordered by latitude. The heliotail may be identified in maps of globally distributed flux as a broad region of low flux centered {approx}44{sup 0}W of the interstellar downwind direction, suggesting heliotail deflection by the interstellar magnetic field.

Intensive archaeological survey of the proposed Central Sanitary Wastewater Treatment Facility, Savannah River Site, Aiken and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina  

SciTech Connect

The project area for the proposed Central Sanitary Wastewater Treatment Facility on the Savannah River Site includes a six-acre tract along Fourmile Branch and 18 mi of trunk line corridors. Archaeological investigations of the six-acre parcel resulted in the discovery of one small prehistoric site designated 38AK465. This cultural resource does not have the potential to add significantly to archaeological knowledge of human occupation in the region. The Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) therefore recommends that 38AK465 is not eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and further recommends a determination of no effect. Archaeological survey along the trunk line corridors implicated previously recorded sites 38AK92, 38AK145, 38AK415, 38AK417, 38AK419, and 38AK436. Past disturbance from construction had severely disturbed 38AK92 and no archaeological evidence of 38AK145, 38AK419, and 38AK436 was recovered during survey. Lacking further evidence for the existence of these sites, the SRARP recommends that 38AK92, 38AK145, 38AK419, and 38AK436 are not eligible for nomination to the NRHP and thus warrant a determination of no effect. Two of these sites, 38Ak415 and 38AK417, required further investigation to evaluate their archaeological significance. Both of the sites have the potential to yield significant data on the prehistoric period occupation of the Aiken Plateau and the SRARP recommends that they are eligible for nomination to the NRHP. The Savannah River Archaeological Research Program recommends that adverse effects to sites 38AK415 and 38AK417 from proposed construction can be mitigated through avoidance.

PROPERTIES OF SEQUENTIAL CHROMOSPHERIC BRIGHTENINGS AND ASSOCIATED FLARE RIBBONS  

SciTech Connect

We report on the physical properties of solar sequential chromospheric brightenings (SCBs) observed in conjunction with moderate-sized chromospheric flares with associated Coronal mass ejections. To characterize these ephemeral events, we developed automated procedures to identify and track subsections (kernels) of solar flares and associated SCBs using high-resolution H{alpha} images. Following the algorithmic identification and a statistical analysis, we compare and find the following: SCBs are distinctly different from flare kernels in their temporal characteristics of intensity, Doppler structure, duration, and location properties. We demonstrate that flare ribbons are themselves made up of subsections exhibiting differing characteristics. Flare kernels are measured to have a mean propagation speed of 0.2 km s{sup -1} and a maximum speed of 2.3 km s{sup -1} over a mean distance of 5 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 3} km. Within the studied population of SCBs, different classes of characteristics are observed with coincident negative, positive, or both negative and positive Doppler shifts of a few km s{sup -1}. The appearance of SCBs precedes peak flare intensity by Almost-Equal-To 12 minutes and decay Almost-Equal-To 1 hr later. They are also found to propagate laterally away from flare center in clusters at 45 km s{sup -1} or 117 km s{sup -1}. Given SCBs' distinctive nature compared to flares, we suggest a different physical mechanism relating to their origin than the associated flare. We present a heuristic model of the origin of SCBs.

Customising Graphics Applications: Techniques and Programming Interface  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper identifies opportunities for customising architectures for graphics applications, such as infrared simulation and geometric visualisation. We have studied methods for exploiting custom data formats and datapath widths, and for optimising graphics operations such as texture mapping and hidden-surface removal. Techniques for balancing the graphics pipeline and for runtime reconfiguration have been implemented. The customised architectures are captured in Handel-C, a Clike language supporting parallelism and flexible data size, and compiled for Xilinx 4000 and Virtex FPGAs. We have also developed an application programming interface based on the OpenGL standard for automatic speedup of graphics applications, including the Quake 2 action game. 1 Introduction Despite tremendous progress in the last thirty years, real-time generation of realistic images still offers many challenges. The demand for realism requires improvement in algorithms, frame rate and resolution, while the v...

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.

Reconnaissance survey of site 7 of the proposed Three Rivers Regional Landfill and Technology Center, Savannah River Site, Aiken County, South Carolina  

SciTech Connect

This report documents the archaeological investigation of Site 7 of the proposed Three Rivers Regional Landfill and Technology Center in Aiken County on the United States Department of Energy`s Savannah River Site (SRS) in Aiken and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina. Pedestrian and subsurface survey techniques were used to investigate the 1,403-acre project area. Survey resulted in the discovery of 23 previously unrecorded sites and 11 occurrences; six previously recorded sites were also investigated. These sites consist of six prehistoric sites, nine historic sites, and 14 sites with both prehistoric and historic components. Sites locations and project area boundaries are provided on a facsimile of a USGS 7.5 topographic map. The prehistoric components consist of very small, low-density lithic and ceramic scatters; most contain less than 10 artifacts. Six of the prehistoric components are of unknown cultural affiliation, the remaining prehistoric sites were occupied predominately in the Woodland period. The historic sites are dominated by postbellum/modem home places of tenant and yeoman farmers but four historic sites were locations of antebellum house sites (38AK136, 38AK613, 38AK660, and 38AK674). The historic sites also include an African-American school (38AK677).

Applying Object-Oriented Design to Structured Graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Structured graphics is useful for building applications that use a direct manipulation metaphor. Objectoriented languages offer inheritance, encapsulation, and runtime binding of operations to objects. Unfortunately, standard structured graphics packages do not use an object-oriented model, and object-oriented systems do not provide general-purpose structured graphics, relying instead on low-level graphics primitives. An object-oriented approach to structured graphics can give application programmers the benefits of both paradigms. We have implemented a two-dimensional structured graphics library in C++ that presents an object-oriented model to the programmer. The graphic class defines a general graphical object from which all others are derived. The picture subclass supports hierarchical composition of graphics. Programmers can define new graphical objects either statically by subclassing or dynamically by composing instances of existing classes. We have used both this library and an...

Graphical calculus for Gaussian pure states  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We provide a unified graphical calculus for all Gaussian pure states, including graph transformation rules for all local and semi-local Gaussian unitary operations, as well as local quadrature measurements. We then use this graphical calculus to analyze continuous-variable (CV) cluster states, the essential resource for one-way quantum computing with CV systems. Current graphical approaches to CV cluster states are only valid in the unphysical limit of infinite squeezing, and the associated graph transformation rules only apply when the initial and final states are of this form. Our formalism applies to all Gaussian pure states and subsumes these rules in a natural way. In addition, the term "CV graph state" currently has several inequivalent definitions in use. Using this formalism we provide a single unifying definition that encompasses all of them. We provide many examples of how the formalism may be used in the context of CV cluster states: defining the "closest" CV cluster state to a given Gaussian pure state and quantifying the error in the approximation due to finite squeezing; analyzing the optimality of certain methods of generating CV cluster states; drawing connections between this new graphical formalism and bosonic Hamiltonians with Gaussian ground states, including those useful for CV one-way quantum computing; and deriving a graphical measure of bipartite entanglement for certain classes of CV cluster states. We mention other possible applications of this formalism and conclude with a brief note on fault tolerance in CV one-way quantum computing.

Instability of flat disks with respect to the formation of twisted ribbons in smectic-A monolayers  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Smectic-A monolayers self-assembled from aqueous solutions of chiral fd viruses and a polymer depletant can assume a variety of shapes such as flat disks and twisted ribbons. A theoretical model based on the de Gennes model for the smectic A phase, the Helfrich model of membrane elasticity and a simple edge energy has been previously used to calculate the disk-ribbon phase diagram. In this paper we apply this model to the nucleation process of ribbons. First, we study the "rippled disks" that have been observed as precursors of ribbons. Using a model shape proposed by Meyer which includes rippling in both the in-plane and out of plane directions, we study the energetics of the disks as functions of the edge energy modulus (a measure of the polymer concentration) and the mean curvature modulus k. We find that as the edge energy modulus is reduced the radial size of the ripples grows rapidly in agreement with experimental observations. For small enough k we find that the out of plane size of the ripples grows but its value saturates at a fraction of the twist penetration depth, too small to be experimentally observable. For large k the membrane remains flat though rippled in the radial direction. Such membranes do not have negative Gaussian curvature and thus will not likely spawn twisted ribbons. We also study the creation of twisted ribbons produced by stretching the edge of a flat membrane in a localized region. In experiments using a pair of optical traps it has been observed that once the membrane has been sufficiently stretched a ribbon forms on the stretched edge. We study this process theoretically using a free energy consisting of the Helfrich and edge energies alone. We add a small ribbon-like perturbation to the protrusion producd by stretching and determine whether it is energetically favorable as a function of the size of the protrusion.

Documented in this report are the methods and results of an intensive archaeological survey for the proposed University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) Conference Center and Educational Facility on the DOE Savannah River Site (SRS). Archaeological investigations conducted by the Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) on the 70-acre project area and associated rights-of-way consisted of subsurface testing at two previously recorded sites and the discovery of one previously unrecorded site. The results show that 2 sites contain archaeological remains that may yield significant information about human occupations in the Aiken Plateau and are therefore considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Adverse impacts to these sites can be mitigated through avoidance.

An apparatus for generating raster graphics images from the graphics command stream includes a plurality of graphics processors connected in parallel, each adapted to receive any part of the graphics command stream for processing the command stream part into pixel data. The apparatus also includes a frame buffer for mapping the pixel data to pixel locations and an interconnection network for interconnecting the graphics processors to the frame buffer. Through the interconnection network, each graphics processor may access any part of the frame buffer concurrently with another graphics processor accessing any other part of the frame buffer. The plurality of graphics processors can thereby transmit concurrently pixel data to pixel locations in the frame buffer.

Research Statement: Multiresolution in Graphics and Simulation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Introduction and Summary The primary goal of my research is to develop simple computational models for simulating the behavior of physical systems. I draw on ideas from graphics, applied mathematics, di#erential geometry, and engineering. My research shows that simple approaches need not sacrifice accuracy or performance. Simple approaches lead to more insight, wider adoption by the scientific computing community, and the opportunity to pursue more ambitious applications to mechanical engineering, medicine, biology, and computer graphics. With this philosophy in mind I am focusing on two key aspects of simulation. First, to improve scalability of simulators with respect to large datasets and high geometric complexity, I am developing a framework for adaptive multiresolution simulation. Second, I am developing discrete models: geometric descriptions of physical phenomena distilled into their most fundamental form.

Graphical Representation of SUSY and C-Program Calculation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a graphical representation of the supersymmetry and a C-program for the graphical calculation. Calculation is demonstrated for 4D Wess-Zumino model and for Super QED. The chiral operators are graphically expressed in an illuminating way. The tedious part of SUSY calculation, due to manipulating chiral suffixes, reduces considerably. The application is diverse.

Scientific statistics and graphics on the Macintosh  

SciTech Connect

In many organizations scientists have ready access to more than one computer, often both a workstation (e.g., SUN, HIP, SGI) as well as a Macintosh or other PC. The scientist commonly uses the work station for {open_quotes}number-crunching{close_quotes} and data analysis whereas the Macintosh is relegated to either word processing or serves as a {open_quotes}dumb terminal{close_quotes} to a larger mainframe computer. In an informal poll of the author`s colleagues, very few of them used their Macintoshes for either statistical analysis or for graphical data display. The author believes that this state of affairs is particularly unfortunate because over the last few years both the computational capability, and even more so, the software availability for the Macintosh have become quite formidable. In some instances, very powerful tools are now available on the Macintosh that may not exist (or be far too costly) on the so-called {open_quotes}high end{close_quotes} workstations. Many scientists are simply unaware of the wealth of extremely useful, {open_quotes}off-the-shelf{close_quote} software that already exists on the Macintosh for scientific graphical and statistical analysis. This paper is a very personal view illustrating several such software packages that have proved valuable in the author`s own work in the analysis and display of climatic datasets. It is not meant to be either an all-inclusive enumeration, nor is it to be taken as an endorsement of these products as the {open_quotes}best{close_quotes} of their class. Rather, it has been found, through extensive use that these few packages were generally capable of satisfying his particular needs for both statistical analysis and graphical data display. In the limited space available, the focus will be on some of the more novel features found to be of value.

Harvesting graphics power for MD simulations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We discuss an implementation of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on a graphic processing unit (GPU) in the NVIDIA CUDA language. We tested our code on a modern GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX. Results for two MD algorithms suitable for short-ranged and long-ranged interactions, and a congruential shift random number generator are presented. The performance of the GPU's is compared to their main processor counterpart. We achieve speedups of up to 80, 40 and 150 fold, respectively. With newest generation of GPU's one can run standard MD simulations at 10^7 flops/$.

Graphical Representation of Supersymmetry and Computer Calculation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A graphical representation of supersymmetry is presented. It clearly expresses the chiral flow appearing in SUSY quantities, by representing spinors by {\\it directed lines} (arrows). The chiral suffixes are expressed by the directions (up, down, left, right) of the arrows. The SL(2,C) invariants are represented by {\\it wedges}. We are free from the messy symbols of spinor suffixes. The method is applied to the 5D supersymmetry. Many applications are expected. The result is suitable for coding a computer program and is highly expected to be applicable to various SUSY theories (including Supergravity) in various dimensions.

Intensive archaeological survey of the F/H Surface Enhancement Project Area, Savannah River Site, Aiken and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Twelve archaeological sites and four artifact occurrences were located by intensive survey of two tracts of land for the F and H Surface Enhancement Project on the Savannah River Site, Aiken and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina. Fieldwork in the 480-acre project area included surface reconnaissance of 3.6 linear kilometers of transects, 140 shovel tests along 4.2 linear kilometers of transects, an additional 162 shovel tests at sites and occurrences, and the excavation of six l {times} 2 m test units. All but one of the sites contained artifacts of the prehistoric era; the twelfth site consists of the remains of a twentieth-century home place. The historic site and six of the prehistoric sites consist of limited and/or disturbed contexts of archaeological deposits that have little research potential and are therefore considered ineligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The remaining five sites have sufficient content and integrity to yield information important to ongoing investigations into upland site use. These sites (38AK146, 38AK535, 38AK539, 38AK541, and 38AK543) are thus deemed eligible for nomination to the NRHP and the Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) recommends that they be preserved through avoidance or data recovery.

Data Reduction and Analysis Graphical Organizer  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Spectroscopic surveys are undergoing a rapid expansion in their data collecting capabilities, reaching the level of hundreds of spectra per pointing. An efficient use of such huge amounts of information requires a high degree of interconnection between the various tools involved in preparing the observations, reducing the data, and carrying out the data analysis. DRAGO (Data Reduction and Analysis Graphical Organizer) attempts to easy the process, by integrating in a global framework the main data handling components: from reduction pipelines, to data organization, plotting, and browsing tools, to storing the data reduction results in a database for further analysis. DRAGO allows the use of the astronomer own's preferred tools, by "plugging them in" in an environment which handles transparently the communications between them.

Unified Graphical Summary of Neutrino Mixing Parameters  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The neutrino mixing parameters are presented in a number of different ways by the various experiments, e.g. SuperKamiokande, K2K, SNO, KamLAND and Chooz and also by the Particle Data Group. In this paper, we argue that presenting the data in terms of $\\sin^2 \\theta$, where $\\theta$ is the mixing angle appropriate for a given experiment has a direct physical interpretation. For current atmospheric, solar and reactor neutrino experiments, the $\\sin^2 \\theta$'s are effectively the probability of finding a given flavor in a particular neutrino mass eigenstate. The given flavor and particular mass eigenstate varies from experiment to experiment, however, the use of $\\sin^2 \\theta$ provides a unified picture of all the data. Using this unified picture we present a graphical way to represent these neutrino mixing parameters which includes the uncertainties. All of this is performed in the context of the present experimental status of three neutrino oscillations.

Partial Wave Analysis using Graphics Cards  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Partial wave analysis is a key technique in hadron spectroscopy. The use of unbinned likelihood fits on large statistics data samples and ever more complex physics models makes this analysis technique computationally very expensive. Parallel computing techniques, in particular the use of graphics processing units, are a powerful means to speed up analyses; in the contexts of the BES III, Compass and GlueX experiments, parallel analysis frameworks have been created. They provide both fits that are faster by more than two orders of magnitude than legacy code and environments to quickly program and run an analysis. This in turn allows the physicists to focus on the many difficult open problems pertaining to partial wave analysis.

Graphical Quantum Error-Correcting Codes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We introduce a purely graph-theoretical object, namely the coding clique, to construct quantum errorcorrecting codes. Almost all quantum codes constructed so far are stabilizer (additive) codes and the construction of nonadditive codes, which are potentially more efficient, is not as well understood as that of stabilizer codes. Our graphical approach provides a unified and classical way to construct both stabilizer and nonadditive codes. In particular we have explicitly constructed the optimal ((10,24,3)) code and a family of 1-error detecting nonadditive codes with the highest encoding rate so far. In the case of stabilizer codes a thorough search becomes tangible and we have classified all the extremal stabilizer codes up to 8 qubits.

Fast DRR splat rendering using common consumer graphics hardware  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Digitally rendered radiographs (DRR) are a vital part of various medical image processing applications such as 2D/3D registration for patient pose determination in image-guided radiotherapy procedures. This paper presents a technique to accelerate DRR creation by using conventional graphics hardware for the rendering process. DRR computation itself is done by an efficient volume rendering method named wobbled splatting. For programming the graphics hardware, NVIDIAs C for Graphics (Cg) is used. The description of an algorithm used for rendering DRRs on the graphics hardware is presented, together with a benchmark comparing this technique to a CPU-based wobbled splatting program. Results show a reduction of rendering time by about 70%-90% depending on the amount of data. For instance, rendering a volume of 2x10{sup 6} voxels is feasible at an update rate of 38 Hz compared to 6 Hz on a common Intel-based PC using the graphics processing unit (GPU) of a conventional graphics adapter. In addition, wobbled splatting using graphics hardware for DRR computation provides higher resolution DRRs with comparable image quality due to special processing characteristics of the GPU. We conclude that DRR generation on common graphics hardware using the freely available Cg environment is a major step toward 2D/3D registration in clinical routine.

Innovative Approaches to Low Cost Module Manufacturing of String Ribbon Si PV Modules: Phase II, Annual Technical Progress Report, 1 April 2003--31 May 2004  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This subcontract resulted in a number of important advances for Evergreen Solar Inc. Foremost amongst these is the production implementation of dual ribbon growth from a single crucible (Gemini) using the String Ribbon continuous ribbon technology. This project has resulted in the flattest ribbon and the highest yields and machine uptime ever seen at Evergreen Solar. This then has resulted in significantly lowered consumables costs and lower overall direct manufacturing costs. In addition, methods to control the as-grown surface of Gemini ribbon have permitted the usage of the so-called no-etch process that allows for direct transfer of as-grown ribbon to diffusion without any intermediate etching step. In-line diagnostics for Gemini were further developed--these included more accurate methods for measuring and controlling melt depth and more accurate means to measure and control ribbon thickness. Earlier in the project, the focus was on monolithic module development. With the Gemini advances described above, monolithic module work was brought to a close during this second year of the overall three year project. A significant advance in this technology was the development of a conductive adhesive in combination with Evergreen's proprietary backskin and encapsulant. 25-W size experimental monolithic modules have been tested and found to be able to withstand up to 1400 thermal cycles.

Innovative Approaches to Low-Cost Module Manufacturing of String Ribbon Si PV Modules; Final Subcontract Report, March 2002 - January 2005  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

As a result of this work, Evergreen Solar, Inc., is now poised to take String Ribbon technology to new heights. In the ribbon growth area, Project Gemini-the growth of dual ribbons from a single crucible-has reached or exceeded all the manufacturing goals set for it. This project grew from an R&D concept to a production pilot phase and finally to a full production phase, all within the span of this subcontract. A major aspect of the overall effort was the introduction of controls and instrumentation as in-line diagnostic tools. In the ribbon production area, the result has been a 12% increase in yields, a 10% increase in machine uptime, and the flattest ribbon ever grown at Evergreen. In the cell area, advances in process development and robotic handling of Gemini wafers have contributed, along with the advances in crystal growth, to a yield improvement of 6%. Particularly noteworthy in the cell area was the refinement of the no-etch process whereby the as-grown ribbon surface could be controlled sufficiently to allow this process to succeed as well as it has. This process obviates any need for wet chemistry or etching between ribbon growth and diffusion.

PICASSO: A GENERAL INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS MODELING PROGRAM.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report is intended to serve as a user's manual for PICASSO. The detailed description of the concepts involved and the methods used in implementing those concepts will be treated in a subsequent paper and are incorporated in the Ph.D. thesis of one of the authors. The program evolved from earlier work on a graphics program for printed circuit board design which had a fixed library of elements. The need for a dynamic graphics program (i.e., one which allows the creation of new elements as required) soon became obvious, and the generality of such a program for mathematical modeling was a major factor in the development of PICASSO. It was thought that the present stage of development of this modeling program had reached a point that a report such as this would be useful in creating a broader interest in the field. However, work continues to further generalize the program into such areas as computer animation, 3-D display and modeling, and a more general interface to available ''analysis'' routines, such as the available compilers and interpreters. It should be emphasized that the program is continually changing as new ideas and applications arise. For example, in order to create a modeling system which is complete in some sense, PICASSO was designed explicitly to interface with the CDC analysis program MIMIC. The next step, already under investigation, is to allow for user-defined output templates to specify,the form of the output of a model. This feature, along with the capability for multiple definitions of an element, will allow for several types of analysis to be done on a single model. Another innovation being studied is the provision for ''robot'' commands, with which the user may define a sequence of. commands to be carried out on demand, in much the same way as mechanical ''robots'' are programmed. For this reason there will usually be several versions of PICASSO available, one of which is relatively ''bug-free''. The authors wish to gratefully acknowledge support from the Math and. Computing Division and the Electrical Engineering Department of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of California, Berkeley. Specifically, we wish to thank Ivan Wood and Horace Warnock of EE Drafting for support and many suggestions; Michiyuki Nakamura, Richard LaPierre, John Mendes, Don Evans and Frank Neu of EE Research and Development for many suggestions and interesting applications; Professor Baskin, EECS Department, UCB, James Baker and Carl Quong, Math and Computing, LBL for support and encouragement; and Norma Hart for preparing the manuscript.

The change in permeability spectra due to ion irradiation in the Co-based amorphous ribbon  

SciTech Connect

The Ar ion has been irradiated by an ion implanter with energy of 50, 70, and 100 keV and an ion dosage was set to 1.0x10{sup 17} ion/cm{sup 2} at a beam flux of 3.7 {mu}A/cm{sup 2}. The ion irradiation decreased the initial permeability and increased the relaxation frequency, and the behavior of permeability spectra due to ion irradiation was explained with damped harmonic model of domain wall on the general basis of magnetization mechanism. The ion irradiation gives rise to a significant change on the restoring force of domain wall but minor effect on the spin rotation. The enhancement in the permeability of the amorphous ribbon upon ion irradiation leads to a parallel improvement of giant magneto impedance response of the material, which is of practical use for sensing applications.

The effects of ion irradiation on a giant magnetoimpedance (GMI) have been investigated for a Co-based amorphous ribbon with various kinds of ions such as Xe, Ar, and N. The GMI ratio and M-H loop parameters were used to characterize the samples before and after the ion irradiation. The GMI ratio increased considerably in the ion irradiated samples and the GMI response showed a strong dependence on the irradiated ion species and driving frequencies. It was shown that the ion irradiations lead to a substantial modification of the magnetic properties including a large coercivity and shearing of the in-plane magnetization loops, thus suggesting the reduction of an exchange coupling.

Quantum Graphical Models and Belief Propagation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Belief Propagation algorithms acting on Graphical Models of classical probability distributions, such as Markov Networks, Factor Graphs and Bayesian Networks, are amongst the most powerful known methods for deriving probabilistic inferences amongst large numbers of random variables. This paper presents a generalization of these concepts and methods to the quantum case, based on the idea that quantum theory can be thought of as a noncommutative, operator-valued, generalization of classical probability theory. Some novel characterizations of quantum conditional independence are derived, and definitions of Quantum n-Bifactor Networks, Markov Networks, Factor Graphs and Bayesian Networks are proposed. The structure of Quantum Markov Networks is investigated and some partial characterization results are obtained, along the lines of the Hammersely-Clifford theorem. A Quantum Belief Propagation algorithm is presented and is shown to converge on 1-Bifactor Networks and Markov Networks when the underlying graph is a tree. The use of Quantum Belief Propagation as a heuristic algorithm in cases where it is not known to converge is discussed. Applications to decoding quantum error correcting codes and to the simulation of many-body quantum systems are described.

Acceleration of Meshfree Radial Point Interpolation Method on Graphics Hardware  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This article describes a parallel computational technique to accelerate radial point interpolation method (RPIM)-based meshfree method using graphics hardware. RPIM is one of the meshfree partial differential equation solvers that do not require the mesh structure of the analysis targets. In this paper, a technique for accelerating RPIM using graphics hardware is presented. In the method, the computation process is divided into small processes suitable for processing on the parallel architecture of the graphics hardware in a single instruction multiple data manner.

PICASSO: A GENERAL INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS MODELING PROGRAM.  

SciTech Connect

This report is intended to serve as a user's manual for PICASSO. The detailed description of the concepts involved and the methods used in implementing those concepts will be treated in a subsequent paper and are incorporated in the Ph.D. thesis of one of the authors. The program evolved from earlier work on a graphics program for printed circuit board design which had a fixed library of elements. The need for a dynamic graphics program (i.e., one which allows the creation of new elements as required) soon became obvious, and the generality of such a program for mathematical modeling was a major factor in the development of PICASSO. It was thought that the present stage of development of this modeling program had reached a point that a report such as this would be useful in creating a broader interest in the field. However, work continues to further generalize the program into such areas as computer animation, 3-D display and modeling, and a more general interface to available ''analysis'' routines, such as the available compilers and interpreters. It should be emphasized that the program is continually changing as new ideas and applications arise. For example, in order to create a modeling system which is complete in some sense, PICASSO was designed explicitly to interface with the CDC analysis program MIMIC. The next step, already under investigation, is to allow for user-defined output templates to specify,the form of the output of a model. This feature, along with the capability for multiple definitions of an element, will allow for several types of analysis to be done on a single model. Another innovation being studied is the provision for ''robot'' commands, with which the user may define a sequence of. commands to be carried out on demand, in much the same way as mechanical ''robots'' are programmed. For this reason there will usually be several versions of PICASSO available, one of which is relatively ''bug-free''. The authors wish to gratefully acknowledge support from the Math and. Computing Division and the Electrical Engineering Department of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of California, Berkeley. Specifically, we wish to thank Ivan Wood and Horace Warnock of EE Drafting for support and many suggestions; Michiyuki Nakamura, Richard LaPierre, John Mendes, Don Evans and Frank Neu of EE Research and Development for many suggestions and interesting applications; Professor Baskin, EECS Department, UCB, James Baker and Carl Quong, Math and Computing, LBL for support and encouragement; and Norma Hart for preparing the manuscript.

Continuous, Automated Manufacturing of String Ribbon Si PV Modules: Second Annual Report, 21 May 1999-20 May 2000  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report describes the activities in manufacturing technology and in silicon ribbon characterization that were completed in the second year of a three-year PVMaT subcontract. The focus in this second year has been on capital cost reduction and automation in silicon ribbon growth, automation and process simplification in the cell area, and some automation in the module area. Evergreen has used the capabilities of the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation at Boston University for help in factory layout, process flow, and efficient materials flow. Evergreen will be utilizing this as it prepares to move to a multi-megawatt factory in the latter part of 2000. Silicon ribbon characterization work has been provided for us by researchers at NREL. A patent has already been filed on this work, and two more are in preparation. Four papers on different aspects of the work have been or will be presented at various conferences here and abroad. In general, as this report shows, the project is on schedule and the overall goals are being met.

Evaluation of Subdivision Surfaces on Programmable Graphics Hardware  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

High-order smooth surface primitives, such as subdivision patches for example, are attractive for the modeling of free-form surfaces. In contrast to meshes they require only a few control points to specify large sections of a surface. Unfortunately, much of this bandwidth advantage is lost when such surfaces have to be tessellated on the CPU prior to transmission over the graphics bus and rendering on the graphics card. For surfaces built through linear combination of basis functions it is possible to precompute tessellations and use these to evaluate the surface at runtime in a simple computation performed entirely on a programmable graphics processor (GPU). The improved bandwidth requirements---only control points need transmission during animation, for example---coupled with the high performance of GPUs, allows us to achieve tessellation rates up to 24 million vertices per second on a 500 MHz GeForce FX.

A Graphical representation of the grand canonical partition function  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper we consider a stochastic partial differential equation defined on a Lattice $L_\\delta$ with coefficients of non-linearity with degree $p$. An analytic solution in the sense of formal power series is given. The obtained series can be re-expressed in terms of rooted trees with two types of leaves. Under the use of the so-called Cole-Hopf transformation and for the particular case $p=2$, one thus get the generalized Burger equation. A graphical representation of the solution and its logarithm is done in this paper. A discussion of the summability of the previous formal solutions is done in this paper using Borel sum. A graphical calculus of the correlation function is given. The special case when the noise is of L\\'evy type gives a simplified representations of the solution of the generalized Burger equation. From the previous results we recall a graphical representation of the grand canonical partition function.

New method for abbreviating the fault tree graphical representation  

SciTech Connect

Fault tree analysis is being widely used for reliability and safety analysis of systems encountered in the nuclear industry and elsewhere. A disadvantage of the fault tree method is the voluminous fault tree graphical representation that conventionally results from analysis of a complex system. Previous methods for shortening the fault tree graphical representation include (1) transfers within the fault tree, and (2) the use of the SAMPLE (K out of N logic) gate, the MATRIX gate, and the SUMMATION gate. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce TABULATION gates as a method to abbreviate the fault tree graphical representation. These new gates reduce the cost of analysis and generally increase the system behavior visibility that is inherent in the fault tree technique. (auth)

Graphical functions and single-valued multiple polylogarithms  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Graphical functions are single-valued complex functions which arise from Feynman amplitudes. We study their properties and use their connection to multiple polylogarithms to calculate Feynman periods. For the zig-zag and two more families of phi^4 periods we give exact results modulo products. These periods are proved to be expressible as integer linear combinations of single-valued multiple polylogarithms evaluated at one. For the larger family of 'constructible' graphs we give an algorithm that allows one to calculate their periods by computer algebra. The theory of graphical functions is used to prove the zig-zag conjecture.

Continuous, Automated Manufacturing of String Ribbon Si PV Modules: Final Report, 21 May 1998 - 20 May 2001  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report summarizes the work done under a three-year PVMaT Phase 5A2 program. The overall goal was to attain a continuous, highly automated, fully integrated PV production line. In crystal growth, advances were made that resulted in lower substrate costs, higher yields, and lower capital and labor costs. A new string material was developed and implemented. Following this development, better control of the edge meniscus was achieved. A completely new furnace design was accomplished, and this became the standard platform in our new factory. Automation included ribbon thickness control and laser cutting of String Ribbon strips. Characterization of Evergreen's String Ribbon silicon was done with extensive help from the NREL laboratories, and this work provided a foundation for higher efficiency cells in the future. Advances in cell manufacturing included the development of high-speed printing and drying methods for Evergreen's unique cell making method and the design and building of a completely automated cell line from the beginning of front-contact application to the final tabbing of the cells. A so-called no-etch process whereby substrates from crystal growth go directly into p-n junction formation and emerge from this sequence without needing to go in and out of plastic carriers for any wet-chemical processing was developed. Process development as well as automation were brought to bear on improvements in soldering technology and cell interconnection in general. Using state-of-the-art manufacturing science, the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation at Boston University facilitated layout and process flow for the operation of our new factory. Evergreen Solar's new factory began operations in the second quarter of 2001. A good measure of the significant impact of this PVMaT subcontract is that virtually all of the manufacturing developments stemming from this project have been incorporated in this new factory.

SHOWGRAF may be used to create shower displays directly on interactive IBM 5080 color display devices, supporting three-dimensional rotations, translations, and zoom features, and providing illustration of particle types and energies by color and/or intensity. Alternatively, SHOWGRAF may be used to record a two-dimensional projection of the shower in a device-independent graphics file. The EGS4PL post-processor may then be used to convert this file into device-dependent graphics code for any UGS77-supported device. Options exist within EGS4PL that allow for two-dimensional translations and zoom, for creating line structure to indicate particle types and energies, and for optional display of particles by type. All of this is facilitated by means of the command processor EGS4PL EXEC together with new options (5080 and PDEV) with the standard EGS4IN EXEC routine for running EGS4 interactively under VM/SP. 6 refs.

Development of an embedded 3D graphics processor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Limitations in processing ability cause major graphical enhancements, such as support for real-time 3D graphics, to be next to impossible within embedded devices. Due to the size, power, and heat dissipation requirements, modern graphics hardware is usually restricted to systems on the scale of personal computers or larger. For this thesis, we have defined a 3D graphics co-processor that is targeted to work on a more embedded scale. The system is specified by limiting it to fixed-point light processing and rasterization. A set of object primitives and instructions are defined to adequately describe almost any scene. These primitives are used to design the algorithms and architecture behind a set of modular functional units. The units are used to realize the processor requirements and features, which include light processing, z-buffering, texturing, and transparency. In order to ensure that the system architecture is versatile in its design, the functional units are analyzed for performance, reconfigurability, and possible trade-offs. A set of both synchronous and asynchronous architectures are proposed using the functional unit blocks. Through cycle accurate comparative simulation, we analyzed the effectiveness of each architecture and found that a hybrid architecture provides the best hardware to speed trade-off between the architectures considered. An appropriate system interface and parallel configuration are also discussed. The end result of the thesis provides a road map for anyone designing a general purpose or application optimized embedded 3D co-processor.

Graphical rule of transforming continuous-variable graph states by local homodyne detection  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Graphical rule, describing that any single-mode homodyne detection turns a given continuous-variable (CV) graph state into a new one, is presented. Employing two simple graphical rules: local complement operation and vertex deletion (single quadrature-amplitude $\\hat{x}$ measurement), the graphical rule for any single-mode quadrature component measurement can be obtained. The shape of CV weighted graph state may be designed and constructed easily from a given larger graph state by applying this graphical rule.

An Alternate Graphical Representation of Periodic table of Chemical Elements  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Periodic table of chemical elements symbolizes an elegant graphical representation of symmetry at atomic level and provides an overview on arrangement of electrons. It started merely as tabular representation of chemical elements, later got strengthened with quantum mechanical description of atomic structure and recent studies have revealed that periodic table can be formulated using SO(4,2)* SU(2) group. IUPAC, the governing body in Chemistry, doesn't approve any periodic table as a standard periodic table. The only specific recommendation provided by IUPAC is that the periodic table should follow the 1 to 18 group numbering. In this technical paper, we describe a new graphical representation of periodic table, referred as 'Circular form of Periodic table'. The advantages of circular form of periodic table over other representations are discussed along with a brief discussion on history of periodic tables.

K.L.: Parallel evolutionary algorithms on graphics processing unit  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract- Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) are effective and robust methods for solving many practical problems such as feature selection, electrical circuits synthesis, and data mining. However, they may execute for a long time for some difficult problems, because several fitness evaluations must be performed. A promising approach to overcome this limitation is to parallelize these algorithms. In this paper, we propose to implement a parallel EA on consumer-level graphics cards. We perform experiments to compare our parallel EA with an ordinary EA and demonstrate that the former is much more effective than the latter. Since consumer-level graphics cards are available in ubiquitous personal computers and these computers are easy to use and manage, more people will be able to use our parallel algorithm to solve their problems encountered in real-world applications. 1

The time taken to analyze the data and obtain fast results depends on high computational power. The main advantage of using GPU(Graphic Processor Unit) programming over traditional CPU one is that graphical cards bring a lot of computing power at a very low price. Today a huge number of application(scientific, financial etc) began to be ported or developed for GPU, including Monte Carlo tools or data analysis tools for High Energy Physics.

SRF Test Areas Cryogenic System Controls Graphical User Interface  

SciTech Connect

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory has constructed a superconducting 1.3 GHz cavity test facility at Meson Detector Building (MDB) and a superconducting 1.3 GHz cryomodule test facility located at the New Muon Lab Building (NML). The control of these 2K cryogenic systems is accomplished by using a Synoptic graphical user interface (GUI) to interact with the underlying Fermilab Accelerator Control System. The design, testing and operational experience of employing the Synoptic client-server system for graphical representation will be discussed. Details on the Synoptic deployment to the MDB and NML cryogenic sub-systems will also be discussed. The implementation of the Synoptic as the GUI for both NML and MDB has been a success. Both facilities are currently fulfilling their individual roles in SCRF testing as a result of successful availability of the cryogenic systems. The tools available for creating Synoptic pages will continue to be developed to serve the evolving needs of users.

Graphical technique for interpolating shape factors for peripheral waterflood systems  

SciTech Connect

A method of interpolating the shape factors between already known sets of data can be utilized in peripheral waterflood systems. This graphical technique should provide reasonably reliable shape factors without necessitating further flow pattern evaluation. A set of interpolated shape factors for the constant pressure difference case is tabulated. These factors were derived from the shape factors previously determined using variation of width technique. A comparison of the interpolated shape factors and the shape factors obtained by the circling-in techniques are also shown. Good agreement was obtained in this comparison.

In a recommendation system, customers' preferences are encoded into vectors, and finding the nearest vectors to each vector is an essential part. We define this part of problem as a $k$-nearest vector problem and give an effective algorithm to solve it on multiple graphics processor units (GPUs). By an experiment, we show that when the size of the problem is large, an implementation of the algorithm on two GPUs runs more than 260 times faster than a single core implementation on a latest CPU. We also show that our algorithm scales well with respect to the number of GPUs.

Resolution-independent surface rendering using programmable graphics hardware  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

Surfaces defined by a Bezier tetrahedron, and in particular quadric surfaces, are rendered on programmable graphics hardware. Pixels are rendered through triangular sides of the tetrahedra and locations on the shapes, as well as surface normals for lighting evaluations, are computed using pixel shader computations. Additionally, vertex shaders are used to aid interpolation over a small number of values as input to the pixel shaders. Through this, rendering of the surfaces is performed independently of viewing resolution, allowing for advanced level-of-detail management. By individually rendering tetrahedrally-defined surfaces which together form complex shapes, the complex shapes can be rendered in their entirety.

A Graphic Representation of States for Quantum Copying Machines  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

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

Incorporating Perceptual Task Effort into the Recognition of Intention in Information Graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The rapidly increasing availability of electronic publications containing information graphics poses some interesting challenges in terms of information access. For example, visually impaired individuals should ideally be provided with access to the knowledge that would be gleaned from viewing the information graphic. Similarly, digital libraries must take into account the content of information graphics when constructing indices. This paper outlines our approach to recognizing the intended message of an information graphic, focusing on the concept of perceptual task e#ort, its role in the inference process, our rules for estimating e#ort, and the results of an eye tracking experiment conducted in order to evaluate and modify those rules.

Dynamic Decision Making for Graphical Models Applied to Oil Exploration  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a framework for sequential decision making in problems described by graphical models. The setting is given by dependent discrete random variables with associated costs or revenues. In our examples, the dependent variables are the potential outcomes (oil, gas or dry) when drilling a petroleum well. The goal is to develop an optimal selection strategy that incorporates a chosen utility function within an approximated dynamic programming scheme. We propose and compare different approximations, from simple heuristics to more complex iterative schemes, and we discuss their computational properties. We apply our strategies to oil exploration over multiple prospects modeled by a directed acyclic graph, and to a reservoir drilling decision problem modeled by a Markov random field. The results show that the suggested strategies clearly improve the simpler intuitive constructions, and this is useful when selecting exploration policies.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this article, we present a graphical user interface software for the litter decomposition and soil carbon model Yasso07 and an overview of the principles and formulae it is based on. The software can be used to test the model and use it in simple applications. Yasso07 is applicable to upland soils of different ecosystems worldwide, because it has been developed using data covering the global climate conditions and representing various ecosystem types. As input information, Yasso07 requires data on litter input to soil, climate conditions, and land-use change if any. The model predictions are given as probability densities representing the uncertainties in the parameter values of the model and those in the input data - the user interface calculates these densities using a built-in Monte Carlo simulation.

Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Macromolecules Using Graphics Processing Unit  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation is a powerful computational tool to study the behavior of macromolecular systems. But many simulations of this field are limited in spatial or temporal scale by the available computational resource. In recent years, graphics processing unit (GPU) provides unprecedented computational power for scientific applications. Many MD algorithms suit with the multithread nature of GPU. In this paper, MD algorithms for macromolecular systems that run entirely on GPU are presented. Compared to the MD simulation with free software GROMACS on a single CPU core, our codes achieve about 10 times speed-up on a single GPU. For validation, we have performed MD simulations of polymer crystallization on GPU, and the results observed perfectly agree with computations on CPU. Therefore, our single GPU codes have already provided an inexpensive alternative for macromolecular simulations on traditional CPU clusters and they can also be used as a basis to develop parallel GPU programs to further speedup the computations.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We use the graphics processing unit (GPU) for fast calculations of helicity amplitudes of physics processes. As our first attempt, we compute $u\\bar{u}\\to n\\gamma$ ($n=2$ to 8) processes in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 14$TeV by transferring the MadGraph generated HELAS amplitudes (FORTRAN) into newly developed HEGET ({\\bf H}ELAS {\\bf E}valuation with {\\bf G}PU {\\bf E}nhanced {\\bf T}echnology) codes written in CUDA, a C-platform developed by NVIDIA for general purpose computing on the GPU. Compared with the usual CPU programs, we obtain 40-150 times better performance on the GPU.

Polymer Field-Theory Simulations on Graphics Processing Units  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report the first CUDA graphics-processing-unit (GPU) implementation of the polymer field-theoretic simulation framework for determining fully fluctuating expectation values of equilibrium properties for periodic and select aperiodic polymer systems. Our implementation is suitable both for self-consistent field theory (mean-field) solutions of the field equations, and for fully fluctuating simulations using the complex Langevin approach. Running on NVIDIA Tesla T20 series GPUs, we find double-precision speedups of up to 30x compared to single-core serial calculations on a recent reference CPU, while single-precision calculations proceed up to 60x faster than those on the single CPU core. Due to intensive communications overhead, an MPI implementation running on 64 CPU cores remains two times slower than a single GPU.

A graphics processor-based intranuclear cascade and evaporation simulation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Monte Carlo simulations of the transport of protons in human tissue have been deployed on graphics processing units (GPUs) with impressive results. To provide a more complete treatment of non-elastic nuclear interactions in these simulations, we developed a fast intranuclear cascade-evaporation simulation for the GPU. This can be used to model non-elastic proton collisions on any therapeutically relevant nuclei at incident energies between 20 and 250 MeV. Predictions are in good agreement with Geant4.9.6p2. It takes approximately 2 s to calculate $1\\times 10^6$ 200 MeV proton-$^{16}$O interactions on a NVIDIA GTX680 GPU. A speed-up factor of $\\sim$20 relative to one Intel i7-3820 core processor thread was achieved.

Carbon, oxygen and their interaction with intrinsic point defects in solar silicon ribbon material. Annual report, September 1982-September 1983  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report first provides some background information on intrinsic point defects, and on carbon and oxygen in silicon in so far as it may be relevant for the efficiency of solar cells fabricated from EFG ribbon material. We discuss the co-precipitation of carbon and oxygen and especially of carbon and silicon self interstitials. A simple model for the electrical activity of carbon-self-interstitial agglomerates is presented. We assume that the self-interstitial content of these agglomerates determines their electrical activity and that both compressive stresses (high self-interstitial content) and tensile stresses (low self-interstitial content) give rise to electrical activity of the agglomerates. The self-interstitial content of these carbon-related agglomerates may be reduced by an appropriate high-temperature treatment and enhanced by a supersaturation of self-interstitials generated during formation of the p-n junction of solar cells. It is suggested that oxygen present in supersaturation in carbon-rich silicon may be induced to form SiO/sub 2/ precipitates by self-interstitials generated during phosphorus diffusion. It is proposed that the SiO/sub 2/-Si interface of the precipates gives rise to a continuum of donor states and that these interface states are responsible for at least part of the light-enhancement effects observed in oxygen containing EFG silicon after phosphorus diffusion.

Langevin dynamics simulations of biomolecules on graphics processors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Due to the very long timescales involved (us-s), theoretical modeling of fundamental biological processes including folding, misfolding, and mechanical unraveling of biomolecules, under physiologically relevant conditions, is challenging even for distributed computing systems. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are emerging as an alternative programming platform to the more traditional CPUs as they provide high raw computational power that can be utilized in a wide range of scientific applications. Using a coarse-grained Self Organized Polymer (SOP) model, we have developed and tested the GPU-based implementation of Langevin simulations for proteins (SOP-GPU program). Simultaneous calculation of forces for all particles is implemented using either the particle based or the interacting pair based parallelization, which leads to a ~30-fold acceleration compared to an optimized CPU version of the program. We assess the computational performance of an end-to-end application of the SOP-GPU program, where all steps of the algorithm are running on the GPU, by profiling the associated simulation time and memory usage for a number of small proteins, long protein fibers, and large-size protein assemblies. The SOP-GPU package can now be used in the theoretical exploration of the mechanical properties of large-size protein systems to generate the force-extension and force-indentation profiles under the experimental conditions of force application, and to relate the results of single-molecule experiments in vitro and in silico.

Graphical Method for Effective Interaction with a New Vertex Function  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Introducing a new vertex function, Z(E), of an energy variable E, we derive a new equation for the effective interaction. The equation is obtained by replacing the Q-box in the Krenciglowa-Kuo (KK) method by Z(E). This new approach can be viewed as an extension of the KK method. We show that this equation can be solved both in iterative and non-iterative ways. We observe that the iteration procedure with Z(E) brings about fast convergence compared to the usual KK method. It is shown that, as in the KK approach, the procedure of calculating the effective interaction can be reduced to determining the true eigenvalues of the original Hamiltonian H and they can be obtained as the positions of intersections of graphs generated from Z(E). We find that this graphical method yields always precise results and reproduces any of the true eigenvalues of H. The calculation in the present approach can be made regardless of overlaps with the model space and energy differences between unperturbed energies and the eigenvalues of H. We find also that Z(E) is a well-behaved function of E and has no singularity. These characteristics of the present approach ensure stability in actual calculations and would be helpful to resolve some difficulties due to the presence of poles in the Q-box. Performing test calculations we verify numerically theoretical predictions made in the present approach.

Continuous, automated manufacturing of string ribbon Si PV modules. PVMaT Phase 5A2 Subcontract: First Annual Report, 21 May 1998--20 May 1999  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report describes the first year of a 3-year PVMaT Phase 5A2 program. Evergreen Solar will soon be expanding into a multi-megawatt facility and the PVMaT work will be used to further the objective of a high-throughput automated production line in every aspect of PV module making from producing silicon ribbon to making a finished module. The project has four task areas for this first year: crystal growth; cell manufacturing; modules; and factory layout and automation. The vast majority of the work this first year has been in the crystal growth and cell manufacturing areas. Evergreen Solar has its own unique technology in each of these areas. In crystal growth, a key goal of this PVMaT project has been developing and deploying an improved string material. The high-temperature string materials are used to stabilize the edges of the growing silicon ribbon in the String Ribbon silicon sheet growth. The result has been one of the major successes of this first year. Significant cost reductions and yield improvements have emerged from this improved string material. In addition, some of the groundwork for automation of the String Ribbon crystal growth process has been laid and shows much promise. A method for controlling the edge meniscus height was developed, and a patent has been filed based on this discovery. In the cell manufacturing area, the focus has been on reducing the number of processing steps and on design and construction of high-speed processing equipment. The possibility of eliminating all pre-diffusion etching and going directly from growth to diffusion has been demonstrated on an R and D scale. Unique designs for high-speed drying equipment and for a high-speed contact and AR-coating application machine have been developed. In the latter case, the basic concepts underlying various aspects of the machine design have been successfully tested for viability. The integration of the different components of this machine into a smoothly working whole is now well under way. In addition, nonvacuum methods of hydrogen passivation have been investigated, but no production-viable process has emerged from this work. In the module area, initial work has shown that the unique properties of the backskin developed under Evergreen's earlier PVMaT Phase 4A1 contract can be expected to make the lay-up process simpler and involve less labor. For factory layout and automation, the authors have enlisted the Fraunhofer Manufacturing Institute at Boston University to aid them with the layout and process flow of their new factory. In general, the project is on schedule, with no significant technical barriers to reach their ultimate objectives.

FLOCKING-BASED DOCUMENT CLUSTERING ON THE GRAPHICS PROCESSING UNIT  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Analyzing and grouping documents by content is a complex problem. One explored method of solving this problem borrows from nature, imitating the fl ocking behavior of birds. Each bird represents a single document and fl ies toward other documents that are similar to it. One limitation of this method of document clustering is its complexity O(n2). As the number of documents grows, it becomes increasingly diffi cult to receive results in a reasonable amount of time. However, fl ocking behavior, along with most naturally inspired algorithms such as ant colony optimization and particle swarm optimization, are highly parallel and have experienced improved performance on expensive cluster computers. In the last few years, the graphics processing unit (GPU) has received attention for its ability to solve highly-parallel and semi-parallel problems much faster than the traditional sequential processor. Some applications see a huge increase in performance on this new platform. The cost of these high-performance devices is also marginal when compared with the price of cluster machines. In this paper, we have conducted research to exploit this architecture and apply its strengths to the document flocking problem. Our results highlight the potential benefi t the GPU brings to all naturally inspired algorithms. Using the CUDA platform from NVIDIA, we developed a document fl ocking implementation to be run on the NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800. Additionally, we developed a similar but sequential implementation of the same algorithm to be run on a desktop CPU. We tested the performance of each on groups of news articles ranging in size from 200 to 3,000 documents. The results of these tests were very signifi cant. Performance gains ranged from three to nearly fi ve times improvement of the GPU over the CPU implementation. This dramatic improvement in runtime makes the GPU a potentially revolutionary platform for document clustering algorithms.

In summary, the conclusions are that computer mapping software should not be developed apart from the researcher or analyst and that those efforts developed apart tend to be esoteric in nature. Three examples involving regional energy modeling and related impact assessment are used to illustrate how development of computer graphics should be integrated into research involving geographical analysis.

Interactive statistical-distribution-analysis program utilizing numerical and graphical methods  

SciTech Connect

The TERPED/P program is designed to facilitate the quantitative analysis of experimental data, determine the distribution function that best describes the data, and provide graphical representations of the data. This code differs from its predecessors, TEDPED and TERPED, in that a printer-plotter has been added for graphical output flexibility. The addition of the printer-plotter provides TERPED/P with a method of generating graphs that is not dependent on DISSPLA, Integrated Software Systems Corporation's confidential proprietary graphics package. This makes it possible to use TERPED/P on systems not equipped with DISSPLA. In addition, the printer plot is usually produced more rapidly than a high-resolution plot can be generated. Graphical and numerical tests are performed on the data in accordance with the user's assumption of normality or lognormality. Statistical analysis options include computation of the chi-squared statistic and its significance level and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov one-sample test confidence level for data sets of more than 80 points. Plots can be produced on a Calcomp paper plotter, a FR80 film plotter, or a graphics terminal using the high-resolution, DISSPLA-dependent plotter or on a character-type output device by the printer-plotter. The plots are of cumulative probability (abscissa) versus user-defined units (ordinate). The program was developed on a Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) PDP-10 and consists of 1500 statements. The language used is FORTRAN-10, DEC's extended version of FORTRAN-IV.

The effect of hydrogen-plasma and PECVD-nitride deposition on bulk and surface passivation in string-ribbon silicon solar cells  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

We have investigated whether an in-situ hydrogen or ammonia rf-plasma treatment prior to a PECVD-nitride deposition would promote bulk defect passivation independently of surface effects. We also studied whether the predeposition of a thin silicon-nitride protective layer vbefore performing the plasma treatment would serve to minimize surface damage. We found that for the limited set of deposition conditions in of cells processed using the used five different deposition strategies and compared the resulting cell performance with that investigated so far, the direct deposition of PECVD-nitride produces the best cells on String Ribbon silicon wafers to date, with efficiencies up to 14.5%. Hydrogen and ammonia plasma pretreatments without a protective nitride layer resulted in better bulk passivation, but damaged surfaces. Pretreatments after deposition of the protective layer produced the best surface passivation, but were not effective in passivating the bulk.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

. The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) built the Proposal Editor (PED) system to be an intelligent graphical editor for creating a detailed observing program for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Previously, users would type in an observing program in a text editor, and then essentially compile it to check for errors. PED gives users an interactive session that provides menus and selections whenever possible, eliminating many possible errors resulting from typos. Multiple choice selections include the invalid values with explanations as to why they are invalid. A declarative constraint mechanism is used to encode legal and illegal values for individual program parts as well as relationships between parts. Error checking is provided on individual parts, as well as on the program as a whole. 1. Introduction The PED system was developed in order to provide an interactive tool for investigators to create their detailed observing programs. It is essentially a graphical interface ...

A Survey of Ocean Simulation and Rendering Techniques in Computer Graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper presents a survey of ocean simulation and rendering methods in computer graphics. To model and animate the ocean's surface, these methods mainly rely on two main approaches: on the one hand, those which approximate ocean dynamics with parametric, spectral or hybrid models and use empirical laws from oceanographic research. We will see that this type of methods essentially allows the simulation of ocean scenes in the deep water domain, without breaking waves. On the other hand, physically-based methods use Navier-Stokes Equations (NSE) to represent breaking waves and more generally ocean surface near the shore. We also describe ocean rendering methods in computer graphics, with a special interest in the simulation of phenomena such as foam and spray, and light's interaction with the ocean surface.

Graphical Analysis of PET Data Applied to Reversible and Irreversible Tracers  

SciTech Connect

Graphical analysis refers to the transformation of multiple time measurements of plasma and tissue uptake data into a linear plot, the slope of which is related to the number of available tracer binding sites. This type of analysis allows easy comparisons among experiments. No particular model structure is assumed, however it is assumed that the tracer is given by bolus injection and that both tissue uptake and the plasma concentration of unchanged tracer are monitored following tracer injection. The requirement of plasma measurements can be eliminated in some cases when a reference region is available. There are two categories of graphical methods which apply to two general types of ligands--those which bind reversibly during the scanning procedure and those which are irreversible or trapped during the time of the scanning procedure.

We present an implementation of the analysis of dynamic near field scattering (NFS) data using a graphics processing unit (GPU). We introduce an optimized data management scheme thereby limiting the number of operations required. Overall, we reduce the processing time from hours to minutes, for typical experimental conditions. Previously the limiting step in such experiments, the processing time is now comparable to the data acquisition time. Our approach is applicable to various dynamic NFS methods, including shadowgraph, Schlieren and differential dynamic microscopy.

A Parallel Implementation of a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Method on Graphics Hardware Using the Compute Unified Device Architecture  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), which is a class of meshfree particle methods (MPMs), has a wide range of applications from micro-scale to macro-scale as well as from discrete systems to continuum systems. Graphics hardware, originally designed for computer graphics, now provide unprecedented computational power for scientific computation. Particle system needs a huge amount of computations in physical simulation. In this paper, an efficient parallel implementation of a SPH method on graphics hardware using the Compute Unified Device Architecture is developed for fluid simulation. Comparing to the corresponding CPU implementation, our experimental results show that the new approach allows significant speedups of fluid simulation through handling huge amount of computations in parallel on graphics hardware.

The National Energy Research Supercomputer Center (NERSC) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is currently pursuing several projects to implement and integrate new hardware and software technologies. While each of these projects ought to be and is in fact individually justifiable, there is an appealing metaphor for viewing them collectively which provides a simple and memorable way to understand the future direction not only of supercomputing services but of computer centers in general. Once this general direction is understood, it becomes clearer what future computer graphics technologies would be possible and desirable, at least within the context of large scale scientific computing.

The web-based graphic service request system for facility management of apartments  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This research investigates the feasibility of web technology as a means of handling service requests for delivering high quality service in building operation and maintenance. This research proposes a web-based graphic service request (WGSR) system as a pragmatic solution to the limitations of current computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) processes. Service request process in CMMS was developed as text-based, so that it is hard for ordinary tenants to use. Therefore, when tenants have a problem in a facility, they prefer calling in service requests or going to the office instead of using the internet service request application. In practice, work orders and records are often misplaced - resulting in lower efficiency and customer satisfaction. This may be overcome by a system that states information digitally and provides a web-based Graphic Service Request (WGSR) interface. The interface allow customers to report environmental problems in the facility, trace their work order progress, view schedules for maintenance, and provide feedback for service online. The WGSR system is an end-user point-and-click graphical interface that allows residents to request service by selecting a problem fixture on a floor plan image. By using HTML image map tags and combination of location, part, and types of problem identification number, the resident's input produces a text-based problem report for Facility Management (FM) departments that allows them to service requests on the fly. To solve the complexity and inefficiency issues of CMMS, the user interface for the WGRS system consists of a perspective drawing or isometric drawing of each unit's plan. An empirical test of the system and post-task survey was conducted to determine the efficiency and usefulness of the system. The analysis of the results shows the system to be efficient and convenient in several fields, including comprehensibility, navigability, simplicity, clarity, compatibility, and graphic appeal. This result shows that residents prefer to use the WGSR system and could reduce the effort needed to make and receive service request phone calls and input information into a database. The labor and time for daily work could be saved to recognize problems correctly and set the right schedule so that this could be used for preventive work and project work.

In this paper, we describe the architecture and performance of the GraCCA system, a Graphic-Card Cluster for Astrophysics simulations. It consists of 16 nodes, with each node equipped with 2 modern graphic cards, the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX. This computing cluster provides a theoretical performance of 16.2 TFLOPS. To demonstrate its performance in astrophysics computation, we have implemented a parallel direct N-body simulation program with shared time-step algorithm in this system. Our system achieves a measured performance of 7.1 TFLOPS and a parallel efficiency of 90% for simulating a globular cluster of 1024K particles. In comparing with the GRAPE-6A cluster at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology), the GraCCA system achieves a more than twice higher measured speed and an even higher performance-per-dollar ratio. Moreover, our system can handle up to 320M particles and can serve as a general-purpose computing cluster for a wide range of astrophysics problems.

The Geant4 Visualisation System - a multi-driver graphics system  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

From the beginning the Geant4 Visualisation System was designed to support several simultaneous graphics systems written to common abstract interfaces. Today it has matured into a powerful diagnostic and presentational tool. It comes with a library of models that may be added to the current scene and which include the representation of the Geant4 geometry hierarchy, simulated trajectories and user-written hits and digitisations. The workhorse is the OpenGL suite of drivers for X, Xm, Qt and Win32. There is an Open Inventor driver. Scenes can be exported in special graphics formats for offline viewing in the DAWN, VRML, HepRApp and gMocren browsers. PostScript can be generated through OpenGL, Open Inventor, DAWN and HepRApp. Geant4's own tracking algorithms are used by the Ray Tracer. Not all drivers support all features but all drivers bring added functionality of some sort. This paper describes the interfaces and details the individual drivers.

Real Time Simulation and Visualization of NC Milling Processes for Inhomogeneous Materials on Low-End Graphics Hardware  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Simulation and visualization of NC milling processes has become an important step in computer aided manufacturing. The usage of stock materials with specific locally varying properties (like density, accuracy, color,. . . ) becomes more and more important with new technologies emerging in the material industry. Our new approach, using volumetric representation, has been adapted to this needs and copes with inhomogeneous material properties. Taking color as one possible material property, our approach enables the visualization of milled wood or compound materials. Furthermore, our approach has been developed with the usage of low-end graphics hardware in mind. The algorithms have been optimized to ensure interactive update rates even on standard personal computers without hardware graphics acceleration. Keywords: NC milling simulation, dexel approach, inhomogeneous material properties 1. Introduction NC milling simulation using computer graphics techniques was proposed some years ag...

Graphical History List with Multi-Window Support on a Mobile Web Browser  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Rolling back to previously visited Web pages and opening multiple browser windows or tabs at the same time are common activities in a Web browsing session on a PC. When using a mobile device for Web browsing, these usage patterns have to be supported seamlessly in the mobile environment under the additional constraint of limited screen real estate. In this paper, we introduce a solution called Rolling History, a user interface targeted for mobile devices with 4-way navigation control and graphics acceleration hardware. We tested the usefulness of a Rolling History prototype in two small-scale user studies and the results indicate that Rolling History is a useful feature for Web history navigation and browser windows management. The Rolling History case demonstrates how to design a unique user interface for a mobile device without displacing the deep-seated use patterns that people have found useful on a PC.

FAST CALCULATION OF THE LOMB-SCARGLE PERIODOGRAM USING GRAPHICS PROCESSING UNITS  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

I introduce a new code for fast calculation of the Lomb-Scargle periodogram that leverages the computing power of graphics processing units (GPUs). After establishing a background to the newly emergent field of GPU computing, I discuss the code design and narrate key parts of its source. Benchmarking calculations indicate no significant differences in accuracy compared to an equivalent CPU-based code. However, the differences in performance are pronounced; running on a low-end GPU, the code can match eight CPU cores, and on a high-end GPU it is faster by a factor approaching 30. Applications of the code include analysis of long photometric time series obtained by ongoing satellite missions and upcoming ground-based monitoring facilities, and Monte Carlo simulation of periodogram statistical properties.

Graphical description of the action of Clifford operators on stabilizer states  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We introduce a graphical representation of stabilizer states and translate the action of Clifford operators on stabilizer states into graph operations on the corresponding stabilizer-state graphs. Our stabilizer graphs are constructed of solid and hollow nodes, with (undirected) edges between nodes and with loops and signs attached to individual nodes. We find that local Clifford transformations are completely described in terms of local complementation on nodes and along edges, loop complementation, and change of node type or sign. Additionally, we show that a small set of equivalence rules generates all graphs corresponding to a given stabilizer state; we do this by constructing an efficient procedure for testing the equality of any two stabilizer graphs.

Interpreting the visual and cinematic style of Japanese anime using three-dimensional computer graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Due to the international popularity of Japanese anime and its recognition as a cinematic art form, creative professionals in the animation industry are impressed with not only the complexity and artistic fluidity of the animation style but also the variety of narrative themes. As an acceptable alternative to live action films, Japanese directors and animators have more liberty with narrative themes and explicit imagery in anime than their western counterparts, and anime is attracting a variety of audiences ranging from young children to adults. As a stylistic form of animation with a distinct line art style, anime is traditionally produced by hand. With the development of non-photorealistic rendering techniques such as toon shading, three-dimensional computer graphics are used in anime production, though with limited application. This thesis attempts to interpret the visual and cinematic style of anime entirely within a three-dimensional digital environment through character design, modeling, character animation, cinematography, and non-photorealistic rendering.

Real-time geo-registration of imagery using COTS graphics processors  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A method of performing real-time geo-registration of high-resolution digital imagery using existing graphics processing units (GPUs) already found in current personal computers, rather than the main central processing unit (CPU). Digital image data captured by a camera (along with inertial navigation system (INS) data associated with the image data) is transferred to and processed by the GPU to perform the calculations involved in transforming the captured image into a geo-rectified, nadir-looking image. By using the GPU, the order-of-magnitude increase in throughput over conventional software techniques makes real-time geo-registration possible without the significant cost of custom hardware solutions.

Graphical template software for accurate micromanipulation in a scanning electron microscope  

SciTech Connect

Micromanipulation techniques in a scanning electron microscope (SEM) have been utilized for assembling micrometer-sized structures. The precision of the assembled microstructures has been limited by the poor accuracy of the SEM image. We have developed a software to assist the operator in the accurate assembly of microstructures in a SEM, in which computer-generated outlines of the target structure [graphical templates (GTs)] are superimposed on the monitor. The displayed GTs are distorted on the basis of the image properties of the SEM evaluated in advance. As a consequence, the operator can construct microstructures with a high precision only by maneuvering the manipulator so that the outline of each object perfectly overlaps the GT without any alteration of the electron optics or circuits for improving the image accuracy.

Position and Orientation Tracking System three-dimensional graphical user interface. CRADA final report  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Under the Department of Energy`s Robotics Technology Development Program (RTDP) Tank Waste Retrieval (TWR) program, a major effort is under way to develop technology for remediating the waste in underground storage tanks that contain radioactive and hazardous waste. A large part of the program`s effort has gone towards development of remotely operable robotics equipment, including the Houdini Vehicle and the Position and Orientation Tracking System (POTS). Since planned operation of this equipment is to be completely remote, a significant effort is needed to ensure that operators have sufficient system information to operate the equipment efficiently and safely. ORNL developed POTS and RedZone Robotics, Inc. developed Houdini which can be operated together to provide both position and orientation descriptions of the Houdini vehicle, relative to a world reference frame, while operating inside an underground storage tank. The Houdini vehicle has been outfitted with an optical detection system that houses infrared detectors. The infrared detectors are part of the POTS tracking system. The sensors provide a set of timing pulses to the POTS control computer whenever a laser beam from one of the four POTS laser scanners strikes a detector. Using the pointing angle information from each POTS laser scanners, the POTS control computer is able to compute the pose of the Houdini vehicle at a rate of approximately 25 Hz. This information, along with the orientation of the Houdini`s Schilling Titan II robot arm, is used to present the pose information to the operator in a 3-D graphical user interface using software that has been developed by this Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). The graphical display presents the data to the operator in a format that is readily understood. The equipment operators are able to use the information in real-time to enhance the operator`s ability to safely and efficiently control the remotely-operated vehicle.

The use of alternative forms of graphical analysis to balance bias and precision in PET images  

SciTech Connect

Graphical analysis (GA) is an efficient method for estimating total tissue distribution volume (V{sub T}) from positron emission tomography (PET) uptake data. The original GA produces a negative bias in V{sub T} in the presence of noise. Estimates of V{sub T} using other GA forms have less bias but less precision. Here, we show how the bias terms are related between the GA methods and how using an instrumental variable (IV) can also reduce bias. Results are based on simulations of a two-compartment model with V{sub T}'s ranging from 10.5 to 64 mL/cm{sub 3} and from PET image data with the tracer [{sup 11}C]DASB ([{sup 11}C]-3-amino-4-(2-dimethylaminomethyl-phenylsulfanyl) benzonitrile). Four estimates of V{sub T} (or distribution volume ratio (DVR) using a reference tissue) can be easily computed from different formulations of GA including the IV. As noise affects the estimates from all four differently, they generally do not provide the same estimates. By taking the median value of the four estimates, we can decrease the bias and reduce the effect of large values contributing to noisy images. The variance of the four estimates can serve as a guide to the reliability of the median estimate. This may provide a general method for the generation of parametric images with little bias and good precision.

AN ANALYSIS OF RESIDENTIAL RADON MEASUREMENTS IN KANSAS UTILIZING GRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIs) TOOLS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Beginning January 1, 1987, the state of Kansas began collecting and recording data from residential radon tests. This data was collected based entirely upon voluntary home testing, performed by 1) the home owner (using a store-purchased radon test kit), 2) a professional radon testing laboratory or 3) by technicians from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) state laboratory. The majority of test results arc from tests conducted by homeowners. The radon database was analyzed using Arc Info 8.2. Three primary graphical information system (GIs) analyses were performed: 1) a comparison of the Kansas database to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)l Unites States Geographical Service (USGS) radon threat map for Kansas, 2) a data density analysis of statewide testing patterns and 3) an analysis of average radon values across clustered zip code districts in Sedgwick County, Shawnee County and the Kansas City metropolitan area (including Johnson, Wyandottc, Leavenworth and Douglas Counties). Comparison of the Kansas radon database to the EPAIUSGS threat asscssmcnt map showed similar but not identical trends. The data density analysis identified the zip code districts for which no test results had been collected and identified the areas of

VOCL: An Optimized Environment for Transparent Virtualization of Graphics Processing Units  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Graphics processing units (GPUs) have been widely used for general-purpose computation acceleration. However, current programming models such as CUDA and OpenCL can support GPUs only on the local computing node, where the application execution is tightly coupled to the physical GPU hardware. In this work, we propose a virtual OpenCL (VOCL) framework to support the transparent utilization of local or remote GPUs. This framework, based on the OpenCL programming model, exposes physical GPUs as decoupledvirtualresourcesthatcanbetransparentlymanaged independent of the application execution. The proposed framework requires no source code modifications. We also propose various strategies for reducing the overhead caused by data communication and kernel launching and demonstrate about 85 % of the data write bandwidth and 90 % of the data read bandwidth compared to data write and read, respectively, in a native nonvirtualized environment. We evaluate the performance of VOCL using four real-world applications with various computation and memory access intensities and demonstrate that compute-intensive applications can execute with negligible overhead in the VOCL environment.

Fast computation of MadGraph amplitudes on graphics processing unit (GPU)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Continuing our previous studies on QED and QCD processes, we use the graphics processing unit (GPU) for fast calculations of helicity amplitudes for general Standard Model (SM) processes. Additional HEGET codes to handle all SM interactions are introduced, as well assthe program MG2CUDA that converts arbitrary MadGraph generated HELAS amplitudess(FORTRAN) into HEGET codes in CUDA. We test all the codes by comparing amplitudes and cross sections for multi-jet srocesses at the LHC associated with production of single and double weak bosonss a top-quark pair, Higgs boson plus a weak boson or a top-quark pair, and multisle Higgs bosons via weak-boson fusion, where all the heavy particles are allowes to decay into light quarks and leptons with full spin correlations. All the helicity amplitudes computed by HEGET are found to agree with those comsuted by HELAS within the expected numerical accuracy, and the cross sections obsained by gBASES, a GPU version of the Monte Carlo integration program, agree wish those obtained by BASES (FORTRAN), as well as those obtained by MadGraph. The performance of GPU was over a factor of 10 faster than CPU for all processes except those with the highest number of jets.

High-throughput Characterization of Porous Materials Using Graphics Processing Units  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We have developed a high-throughput graphics processing units (GPU) code that can characterize a large database of crystalline porous materials. In our algorithm, the GPU is utilized to accelerate energy grid calculations where the grid values represent interactions (i.e., Lennard-Jones + Coulomb potentials) between gas molecules (i.e., CH$_{4}$ and CO$_{2}$) and material's framework atoms. Using a parallel flood fill CPU algorithm, inaccessible regions inside the framework structures are identified and blocked based on their energy profiles. Finally, we compute the Henry coefficients and heats of adsorption through statistical Widom insertion Monte Carlo moves in the domain restricted to the accessible space. The code offers significant speedup over a single core CPU code and allows us to characterize a set of porous materials at least an order of magnitude larger than ones considered in earlier studies. For structures selected from such a prescreening algorithm, full adsorption isotherms can be calculated by conducting multiple grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations concurrently within the GPU.

Calculation of HELAS amplitudes for QCD processes using graphics processing unit (GPU)

New HEGET ({\\bf H}ELAS {\\bf E}valuation with {\\bf G}PU {\\bf E}nhanced {\\bf T}echnology) codes for gluon self-interactions are introduced, and a C++ program to convert the MadGraph generated FORTRAN codes into HEGET codes in CUDA (a C-platform for general purpose computing on GPU) is created. Because of the proliferation of the number of Feynman diagrams and the number of independent color amplitudes, the maximum number of final state jets we can evaluate on a GPU is limited to 4 for pure gluon processes ($gg\\to 4g$), or 5 for processes with one or more quark lines such as $q\\bar{q}\\to 5g$ and $qq\\to qq+3g$. Compared with the usual CPU-based programs, we obtain 60-100 times better performance on the GPU, except for 5-jet production processes and the $gg\\to 4g$ processes for which the GPU gain over the CPU is about 20.

Developing extensible lattice-Boltzmann simulationsfor general-purpose graphics-programming units  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Lattice-Boltzmann methods are versatile numerical modeling techniques capable of reproducing a wide variety of fluid-mechanical behavior. These methods are well suited to parallel implementation, particularly on the single-instruction multiple data (SIMD) parallel processing environments found in computer graphics processing units (GPUs). Although more recent programming tools dramatically improve the ease with which GPU programs can be written, the programming environment still lacks the flexibility available to more traditional CPU programs. In particular, it may be difficult to develop modular and extensible programs that require variable on-device functionality with current GPU architectures. This paper describes a process of automatic code generation that overcomes these difficulties for lattice-Boltzmann simulations. It details the development of GPU-based modules for an extensible lattice-Boltzmann simulation package - LBHydra. The performance of the automatically generated code is compared to equivalent purpose written codes for both single-phase, multiple-phase, and multiple-component flows. The flexibility of the new method is demonstrated by simulating a rising, dissolving droplet in a porous medium with user generated lattice-Boltzmann models and subroutines.

The VVDS data reduction pipeline: introducing VIPGI, the VIMOS Interactive Pipeline and Graphical Interface  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey (VVDS), designed to measure 150,000 galaxy redshifts, requires a dedicated data reduction and analysis pipeline to process in a timely fashion the large amount of spectroscopic data being produced. This requirement has lead to the development of the VIMOS Interactive Pipeline and Graphical Interface (VIPGI), a new software package designed to simplify to a very high degree the task of reducing astronomical data obtained with VIMOS, the imaging spectrograph built by the VIRMOS Consortium for the European Southern Observatory, and mounted on Unit 3 (Melipal) of the Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Paranal Observatory (Chile). VIPGI provides the astronomer with specially designed VIMOS data reduction functions, a VIMOS-centric data organizer, and dedicated data browsing and plotting tools, that can be used to verify the quality and accuracy of the various stages of the data reduction process. The quality and accuracy of the data reduction pipeline are comparable to those obtained using well known IRAF tasks, but the speed of the data reduction process is significantly increased, thanks to the large set of dedicated features. In this paper we discuss the details of the MOS data reduction pipeline implemented in VIPGI, as applied to the reduction of some 20,000 VVDS spectra, assessing quantitatively the accuracy of the various reduction steps. We also provide a more general overview of VIPGI capabilities, a tool that can be used for the reduction of any kind of VIMOS data.

Emerging human-computer interface (HCI) design guidelines for graphical user interface (GUI)  

SciTech Connect

The requirement to establish baseline style references for Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) is recognized. The ability to obtain consensus among user communities has been limited to nonexistent. The authors are part of a team that has developed a generic baseline human-computer interface (HCI) style guide for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD HCI Style Guide has its origin in a style guide developed by the intelligence community and in human factors design guidelines developed for Army tactical command and control systems. The DoD HCI Style Guide is intended to be a baseline style reference for the design of HCIs within DoD. The needs of specific user communities have been addressed by including addenda that expand on the baseline and address focus areas of interest. The conclusion is that an overall or general style guide should be adopted for GUIs with allowance for specialized user group requirements and additions. The anticipated results would be higher productivity and reduced training and development time.

HLYWD: a program for post-processing data files to generate selected plots or time-lapse graphics  

SciTech Connect

The program HLYWD is a post-processor of output files generated by large plasma simulation computations or of data files containing a time sequence of plasma diagnostics. It is intended to be used in a production mode for either type of application; i.e., it allows one to generate along with the graphics sequence, segments containing title, credits to those who performed the work, text to describe the graphics, and acknowledgement of funding agency. The current version is designed to generate 3D plots and allows one to select type of display (linear or semi-log scales), choice of normalization of function values for display purposes, viewing perspective, and an option to allow continuous rotations of surfaces. This program was developed with the intention of being relatively easy to use, reasonably flexible, and requiring a minimum investment of the user's time. It uses the TV80 library of graphics software and ORDERLIB system software on the CDC 7600 at the National Magnetic Fusion Energy Computing Center at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California.

Analysis of three-dimensional splines and their application to the initial graphics exchange specification  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This research develops the fundamental theories associated with three-dimensional splines and the philosophies underlying the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES). Splines have been classified into three main categories: polynomial splines, splines-in-tension, and blending splines. The importance of a three-dimensional spline standard is given. It is shown that no single spline routine can adequately define a curve for every possible application. A possible three-dimensional spline standard should therefore contain a spline routine from each of the three categories. The B-spline, Cline's spline-in-tension, and Circle Spline were the three spline routines selected. The properties and characteristics that these splines should possess are defined. Two methods for extending a two-dimensional spline into three dimensions are given. The B-spline is extended parametrically and the Spline-in-Tension is extended explicitly. It will be shown that the parametric form is the more powerful and computationally efficient method. An alternative method for representing splines in IGES is presented. This alternate method uses the IGES Copious Data Entity. It has a smaller file size than the traditionally used Parametric Spline Curve Entity. The use of this method is geared toward the application of splines in design and analysis work. The data stored within the file by each spline routine represents the minimum amount of information required to uniquely define the spline curve. The alternative method for storing and transferring spline data is structured in a manner that allows each spline routine to read and write files efficiently. Using this data file, a spline routine can generate a curve by reading the output of another spline routine. It will be demonstrated that spline transfer between both similar and dissimilar spline routines can be done accurately and efficiently. 72 refs., 16 figs.

These new discoveries will enable a move from single-quasar studies to investigations of statistical samples, presenting new opportunities to test theoretical models for the structure of quasar accretion disks and broad emission line regions (BELRs). As one crucial step in preparing for this influx of new lensed systems, a large-scale exploration of microlensing convergence-shear parameter space is warranted, requiring the computation of O(10{sup 5}) high-resolution magnification maps. Based on properties of known lensed quasars, and expectations from accretion disk/BELR modeling, we identify regions of convergence-shear parameter space, map sizes, smooth matter fractions, and pixel resolutions that should be covered. We describe how the computationally time-consuming task of producing {approx}290,000 magnification maps with sufficient resolution (10,000{sup 2} pixel map{sup -1}) to probe scales from the inner edge of the accretion disk to the BELR can be achieved in {approx}400 days on a 100 teraflop s{sup -1} high-performance computing facility, where the processing performance is achieved with graphics processing units. We illustrate a use-case for the parameter survey by investigating the effects of varying the lens macro-model on accretion disk constraints in the lensed quasar Q2237+0305. We find that although all constraints are consistent within their current error bars, models with more densely packed microlenses tend to predict shallower accretion disk radial temperature profiles. With a large parameter survey such as the one described here, such systematics on microlensing measurements could be fully explored.

Fast analysis of molecular dynamics trajectories with graphics processing units-Radial distribution function histogramming  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The calculation of radial distribution functions (RDFs) from molecular dynamics trajectory data is a common and computationally expensive analysis task. The rate limiting step in the calculation of the RDF is building a histogram of the distance between atom pairs in each trajectory frame. Here we present an implementation of this histogramming scheme for multiple graphics processing units (GPUs). The algorithm features a tiling scheme to maximize the reuse of data at the fastest levels of the GPU's memory hierarchy and dynamic load balancing to allow high performance on heterogeneous configurations of GPUs. Several versions of the RDF algorithm are presented, utilizing the specific hardware features found on different generations of GPUs. We take advantage of larger shared memory and atomic memory operations available on state-of-the-art GPUs to accelerate the code significantly. The use of atomic memory operations allows the fast, limited-capacity on-chip memory to be used much more efficiently, resulting in a fivefold increase in performance compared to the version of the algorithm without atomic operations. The ultimate version of the algorithm running in parallel on four NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) GPUs was found to be 92 times faster than a multithreaded implementation running on an Intel Xeon 5550 CPU. On this multi-GPU hardware, the RDF between two selections of 1,000,000 atoms each can be calculated in 26.9 s per frame. The multi-GPU RDF algorithms described here are implemented in VMD, a widely used and freely available software package for molecular dynamics visualization and analysis.

A Graphical Approach to Diagnosing the Validity of the Conditional Independence Assumptions of a Bayesian Network Given Data  

SciTech Connect

Bayesian networks have attained widespread use in data analysis and decision making. Well studied topics include: efficient inference, evidence propagation, parameter learning from data for complete and incomplete data scenarios, expert elicitation for calibrating Bayesian network probabilities, and structure learning. It is not uncommon for the researcher to assume the structure of the Bayesian network or to glean the structure from expert elicitation or domain knowledge. In this scenario, the model may be calibrated through learning the parameters from relevant data. There is a lack of work on model diagnostics for fitted Bayesian networks; this is the contribution of this paper. We key on the definition of (conditional) independence to develop a graphical diagnostic method which indicates if the conditional independence assumptions imposed when one assumes the structure of the Bayesian network are supported by the data. We develop the approach theoretically and describe a Monte Carlo method to generate uncertainty measures for the consistency of the data with conditional independence assumptions under the model structure. We describe how this theoretical information and the data are presented in a graphical diagnostic tool. We demonstrate the approach through data simulated from Bayesian networks under different conditional independence assumptions. We also apply the diagnostic to a real world data set. The results indicate that our approach is a reasonable way of visualizing and inspecting the conditional independence assumption of a Bayesian network given data.

High Performance Direct Gravitational N-body Simulations on Graphics Processing Unit I: An implementation in Cg  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the results of gravitational direct $N$-body simulations using the commercial graphics processing units (GPU) NVIDIA Quadro FX1400 and GeForce 8800GTX, and compare the results with GRAPE-6Af special purpose hardware. The force evaluation of the $N$-body problem was implemented in Cg using the GPU directly to speed-up the calculations. The integration of the equations of motions were, running on the host computer, implemented in C using the 4th order predictor-corrector Hermite integrator with block time steps. We find that for a large number of particles ($N \\apgt 10^4$) modern graphics processing units offer an attractive low cost alternative to GRAPE special purpose hardware. A modern GPU continues to give a relatively flat scaling with the number of particles, comparable to that of the GRAPE. The GRAPE is designed to reach double precision, whereas the GPU is intrinsically single-precision. For relatively large time steps, the total energy of the N-body system was conserved better than to one in $10^6$ on the GPU, which is impressive given the single-precision nature of the GPU. For the same time steps, the GRAPE gave somewhat more accurate results, by about an order of magnitude. However, smaller time steps allowed more energy accuracy on the grape, around $10^{-11}$, whereas for the GPU machine precision saturates around $10^{-6}$ For $N\\apgt 10^6$ the GeForce 8800GTX was about 20 times faster than the host computer. Though still about a factor of a few slower than GRAPE, modern GPUs outperform GRAPE in their low cost, long mean time between failure and the much larger onboard memory; the GRAPE-6Af holds at most 256k particles whereas the GeForce 8800GTX can hold 9 million particles in memory.

Parallel Algorithm for Solving Kepler's Equation on Graphics Processing Units: Application to Analysis of Doppler Exoplanet Searches  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

[Abridged] We present the results of a highly parallel Kepler equation solver using the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) on a commercial nVidia GeForce 280GTX and the "Compute Unified Device Architecture" programming environment. We apply this to evaluate a goodness-of-fit statistic (e.g., chi^2) for Doppler observations of stars potentially harboring multiple planetary companions (assuming negligible planet-planet interactions). We tested multiple implementations using single precision, double precision, pairs of single precision, and mixed precision arithmetic. We find that the vast majority of computations can be performed using single precision arithmetic, with selective use of compensated summation for increased precision. However, standard single precision is not adequate for calculating the mean anomaly from the time of observation and orbital period when evaluating the goodness-of-fit for real planetary systems and observational data sets. Using all double precision, our GPU code outperforms a similar code using a modern CPU by a factor of over 60. Using mixed-precision, our GPU code provides a speed-up factor of over 600, when evaluating N_sys > 1024 models planetary systems each containing N_pl = 4 planets and assuming N_obs = 256 observations of each system. We conclude that modern GPUs also offer a powerful tool for repeatedly evaluating Kepler's equation and a goodness-of-fit statistic for orbital models when presented with a large parameter space.

Interactive computer graphics displays for hierarchical data structures. [Description of THESGRAF, in FORTRAN IV for CDC and IBM computers  

SciTech Connect

An interactive computer graphical display program was developed as an aid to user visualization and manipulation of hierarchically structured data systems such as thesauri. In the present configuration, a thesaurus term and its primary and secondary conceptual neighbors are presented to the user in tree graph form on a CRT; the user then designates, via light pen or keyboard, any of the neighbors as the next term of interest and receives a new display centered on this term. By successive specification of broader, narrower, and related terms, the user can course rapidly through the thesaurus space and refine his search file. At any stage, he deals with a term-centered, conceptually meaningful picture of a localized portion of the thesaurus, and is freed from the artificial difficulties of handling the traditional alphabetized thesaurus. Intentional limitation of the associative range of each display frame, and the use of color, case, and interconnecting vectors to encode relationships among terms, enhance interpretability of the display. Facile movement through the term space, provided by interactive computation, allows the display to remain simple, and is an essential element of the system. 3 figures.

An aerial radiological survey of the Central Savannah River Site, Aiken, South Carolina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

An aerial radiological survey was conducted over a 194-square- kilometer (75-square-mile) area encompassing the central portion of the Savannah River Site (SRS). The survey was flown during February 10--27, 1987. These radiological measurements were used as baseline data for the central area and for determining the extent of man-made radionuclide distribution. Previous SRS surveys included small portions of the area; the 1987 survey was covered during the site- wide survey conducted in 1979. Man-made radionuclides (including cobalt-60, cesium-137, protactinium-234m, and elevated levels of uranium-238 progeny) that were detected during the survey were typical of those produced by the reactor operations and material processing activities being conducted in the area. The natural terrestrial radiation levels were consistent with those measured during prior surveys of other SRS areas. 1 refs., 4 figs.

Characterization of the Burma Road Rubble Pit at the Savannah River Site, Aiken, South Carolina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Burma Road Rubble Pit (BRRP) is located at the Savannah River Site (SRS). The BRRP unit consists of two unlined earthen pits dug into surficial soil and filled with various waste materials. It was used from 1973--1983 for the disposal of dry inert rubble such as metal, concrete, lumber, poles, light fixtures, and glass. No record of the disposal of hazardous substances at the BRRP has been found. In 1983, the BRRP was closed by covering it with soil. In September 1988, a Ground Penetrating Radar survey detected three disturbed areas of soil near the BRRP, and a detailed and combined RCRA Facility Investigation/Remedial Investigation was conducted from November 1993 to February 1994 to determine whether hazardous substances were present in the subsurface, to evaluate the nature and extent of contamination, and to evaluate the risks posed to the SRS facility due to activities conducted at the BRRP site. Metals, semi-volatile organic compounds, volatile organic compounds, radionuclides and one pesticide (Aldrin) were detected in soil and groundwater samples collected from seventeen BRRP locations. A baseline risk assessment (BRA) was performed quantitatively to evaluate whether chemical and radionuclide concentrations detected in soil and groundwater at the BRRP posed an unacceptable threat to human health and the environment. The exposure scenarios identifiable for the BRRP were for environmental researchers, future residential and occupational land use. The total site noncancer hazard indices were below unity, and cancer risk levels were below 1.0E-06 for the existing and future case environmental researcher scenario. The future case residential and occupational scenarios showed total hazard and risk levels which exceeded US EPA criterion values relative to groundwater scenarios. For the most part, the total carcinogenic risks were within the 1.0E-04 to 1.0E-06 risk range. Only the future adult residential scenario was associated with risks exceeding 1.0E-04.

On the effective implementation of a boundary element code on graphics processing units unsing an out-of-core LU algorithm  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A collocation boundary element code for solving the three-dimensional Laplace equation, publicly available from \\url{http://www.intetec.org}, has been adapted to run on an Nvidia Tesla general purpose graphics processing unit (GPU). Global matrix assembly and LU factorization of the resulting dense matrix were performed on the GPU. Out-of-core techniques were used to solve problems larger than available GPU memory. The code achieved over eight times speedup in matrix assembly and about 56~Gflops/sec in the LU factorization using only 512~Mbytes of GPU memory. Details of the GPU implementation and comparisons with the standard sequential algorithm are included to illustrate the performance of the GPU code.

Predictions of thermal comfort and pollutant distributions for a thermostatically-controlled, air-conditioned, partitioned room: Numerical results and enhanced graphical presentation  

SciTech Connect

An index of local thermal comfort and pollutant distributions have been computed with the TEMPEST computer code, in a transient simulation of an air-conditioned enclosure with an incomplete partition. This complex three-dimensional air conditioning problem included forced ventilation through inlet veins, flow through a partition, remote return air vents, and infiltration source, a pollutant source, and a thermostatically controlled air conditioning system. Five forced ventilation schemes that varied in vent areas and face velocities were simulated. Thermal comfort was modeled as a three-dimensional scalar field dependent on the fluid velocity and temperature fields; where humidity activity levels, and clothing were considered constants. Pollutants transport was incorporated through an additional constituent diffusion equation. Six distinct graphic techniques for the visualization of the three-dimensional data fields of air velocity, temperature, and comfort index were tested. 4 refs., 7 figs., 1 tab.

Colors Colors Fermilab's core color is NAL blue, developed for Fermilab in the 1970s by the Rustoleum® paint company. NAL blue, Fermilab's core color, should be the main color for: Two-color applications with black ink on white paper. Logo/mark treatments when a color besides black is desirable. Primary communications from the lab Directorate. Primary communications from the Office of Communication. Multicolor treatments in all media that communicate a core Fermilab message. NAL Blue - R0 G51 B153 When more than one color is desired, the use of colors from Fermilab’s recommended palette is strongly encouraged. The recommended palette is derived from the original selections of Robert Wilson and Angela Gonzales. The links below provide the colors’ nearest Pantone Matching System (PMS)

Graphical aids for relativistic optics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The paper presents a relativistic space-time diagram, which displays in true values the space (Cartesian and polar) and the time coordinates of the same event detected from two inertial reference frames in relative motion related by the Lorentz-Einstein transformations, the aberration angles and the Doppler shifted periods and wavelengths. We use it in order to illustrate the reflection of light on moving mirrors (horizontal and vertical) and the way in which a single observer could measure the length of a moving rod. It displays in true values the space-time coordinates of the same event generated by a light signal.

Technical synthesis of prehistoric archaeological investigations on the Savannah River Site, Aiken and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Archaeological investigations on the United States Department of Energy's (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS) in south Carolina span 16 years and continue today through a cooperative agreement between DOE and the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA), University of South Carolina. The Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) of SCIAA has been and continues to be the sole archaeological consultant for DOE-SRS. This report documents technical aspects of all prehistoric archaeological research conducted by the SRARP between 1973 and 1987. Further, this report provides interpretative contexts for archaeological resources as a basis for an archaeological resource plan reported elsewhere (SRARP 1989), and as a comprehensive statement of our current understanding of Native American prehistory and history.

Record of Decision; Continued operation of K, L, and P Reactors, Savannah River Site, Aiken, South Carolina  

SciTech Connect

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has considered the environmental impacts, benefits and costs, and institutional and programmatic needs associated with continued operation of the Savannah River Site (SRS) reactors, and has decided that it will continue to operate K and L Reactors at SRS, and will terminate operation of P Reactor in the immediate future and maintain it in cold standby. For P Reactor, this will involve the reactor's defueling; storage of its heavy water moderator in tanks in the reactor building; shutdown of reactor equipment and systems in a protected condition to prevent deterioration; and maintenance of the reactor in a defueled, protected status by a skeleton staff, which would permit any future decision to refuel and restart. Currently committed and planned upgrade activities will be discontinued for P Reactor. DOE will proceed with the safety upgrades and management system improvements currently scheduled for K Reactor in its program to satisfy the criteria of the Safety Evaluation Report (SER), and will conduct an Operational Readiness Review (ORR). The satisfaction of the SER criteria and completion of the ORR will demonstrate that the safety and health criteria for the resumption of production have been met. Reactor restart is expected to be in the third quarter of 1991 for K Reactor.

9 9 United States Department of Energy Grand Junction Office Background The original Monticello mill was built in 1942 to provide an additional supply of vanadium during World War II. The mill was modified in the early 1950s to process uranium ore. Milling continued intermittently until the early 1960s, when the mill was dismantled. Tailings are the sandlike material that remains after processing of ore. Uranium tailings contain naturally occurring materials that radioactively decay to radium and then to radon, a radioactive gas. Tailings and uranium ore contaminated properties in and around the city of Monticello. Tailings were dispersed by wind and water from the millsite and residual ore remained from hauling and stockpiling operations. DOE entered into an agreement with EPA and
