The simplest, most sensible " Big Bang" universe, theoretical physicists believe, would be one in which equal numbers of particles and antiparticles are formed in pairs. As the universe cools, most of these particles would encounter their antiparticles, and they would annihilate. "In many ways, the most reasonable universe would be one in which there is no matter," says the University of Tennessee's Dr. Geoff Greene.

A team from The Johns Hopkins University and led by Tyrel McQueen recently synthesized and characterized the geometrically frustrated magnetic system, LiZn2Mo3O8. In such systems, competing exchange interactions cannot all be satisfied and as a result, the ground state degenerates.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

June 2000 June 2000 Highlights Overview Renewed strength in world oil prices following a short-lived slump in April and a dramatic rally in domestic natural gas prices in response to weak storage injection performance and general worries about near-term gas supplies has prompted us to sharply increase expected levels for energy prices in the short term. Given our general expectations about growth in world oil demand and supply, the oil price adjustment for this Outlook is a shift in the expected level and not a move away from the conviction that prices should trend downward from current levels by year end. Meanwhile, as higher crude oil prices have intervened, and as generally low inventories have resulted in some greater-than- expected tightness in gasoline markets, particularly in the Midwest, we now

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

January 2010 January 2010 1 January 2010 Short-Term Energy Outlook January 12, 2010 Release Highlights This edition of the Short-Term Energy Outlook is the first to include monthly forecasts through December 2011. EIA expects that the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil, which averaged $62 per barrel in 2009, will average about $80 and $84 per barrel in 2010 and 2011, respectively. EIA's forecast assumes that U.S. real gross domestic product (GDP) grows by 2.0 percent in 2010 and by 2.7 percent in 2011, while world oil-consumption-weighted real GDP grows by 2.5 percent and 3.7 percent in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Escalating crude oil prices drive the annual average regular-grade gasoline retail price from $2.35 per gallon in 2009 to $2.84 in 2010 and $2.96 in 2011.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

0 0 Highlights International Oil Markets World Oil Prices - How High Will They Go? Our forecast this month is that the world oil price should remain high for most of the year as inventories are expected to remain low, even with an assumed increase in OPEC production of 1 million barrels per day beginning in April. The average cost per barrel of crude oil imported into the United States and delivered to U.S. refiners (the benchmark price used in this forecast) is expected to increase from $26.65 per barrel in the first quarter of 2000 to $27.65 per barrel in the second quarter this year. After that we expect a gradual falling off throughout the rest of 2000 and 2001 to end between $22.25 and $22.50 per barrel by the fourth quarter of 2001 (Figure 1). (Note: for comparison purposes, the price of West Texas

This is about 0.5 million barrels per day above their production target of 24.69 million barrels per day. The forecast then assumes another 0.1 million barrels per day increase in OPEC 10 crude oil production in the third quarter and an additional 0.5 million barrel per day increase in the fourth quarter of 2000. If OPEC fails to increase production in the third or fourth quarters of 2000 as assumed in this forecast, higher oil prices would be expected.

Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found that these "giant" particles have a larger-than-expected impact on the amount of sunlight reflected away from Earth, by as much as 45 percent. They also showed that particles larger than one micron (0.000039 inch) occur much more frequently than expected, up to 85 percent of the time. "Many routine measurements are unable to sample large particles, thus they may overlook the residence of many 'Gullivers in the country of Lilliput,' said Dr. Evgueni

Science and Technology Highlights of ORNL's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program, November 1998  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

ORNL's EE/RE research has always involved partnering with outside organizations, but collaborations tended toward industrial and university partners. Recognizing the value of working with state energy agencies, ORNL began in the early 1990s to establish stronger relations with state energy offices (SEOs) and the Association of State Energy Research and Technology Transfer Institutions (ASERTTI). In a 1993 meeting, states offered to help DOE deliver technology to the marketplace and indicated that the national laboratories could help them solve technology-related problems. In 1994, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory responded with a new program to establish federal-state collaborations. In 1996 ORNL began the State Partnerships Program (SPP), incorporating lessons learned from our sister laboratory. Core funding for SPP is provided by ORNL's EE/RE Program to pay for ORNL staff expertise and assistance. Partners contribute through either direct funding or in-kind resources. SPP has funded 38 projects and technical-assistance activities in 18 states. Partners include SEOS, ASERTTI members, utilities, universities, industrial firms, trade associations, and DOE regional support offices. All four sectors covered by ORNL's EE/RE Program-buildings, transportation, industry, and utility--are represented in the project mix. How can your organization participate? Twice yearly, calls for proposals are issued to ORNL staff, SEOS, and ASERTTI members. (Requests for 2-to 4-day technical assistance efforts are welcome any time!) Proposals must be developed in collaboration with ORNL researchers and must address issues integral to the EE/RE missions of DOE and ORNL.

Scientists Identify New Quaternary Materials for Solar Cell Absorbers (Fact Sheet), NREL Highlights, Science  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Research provides insight for exploring use of earth-abundant quaternary semiconductors for large-scale solar cell applications. For large-scale solar electricity generation, it is critical to find new material that is Earth abundant and easily manufactured. Previous experimental studies suggest that Cu{sub 2}ZnSnS{sub 4} could be a strong candidate absorber materials for large-scale thin-film solar cells due to its optimal bandgap, high adsorption coefficient, and ease of synthesis. However, due to the complicated nature of the quaternary compound, it is unclear whether other quaternary compounds have physical properties suitable for solar cell application. Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Fudan University, and University College London have performed systematic searches of quaternary semiconductors using a sequential cation mutation method in which the material properties of the quaternary compounds can be derived and understood through the evolution from the binary, to ternary, and to quaternary compounds. The searches revealed that in addition to Cu{sub 2}ZnSnS{sub 4}, Cu{sub 2}ZnGeSe{sub 4} and Cu{sub 2}ZnSnSe{sub 4} are also suitable quaternary materials for solar cell absorbers. Through the extensive study of defect and alloy properties of these materials, the researchers propose that to maximize solar cell performance, growth of Cu{sub 2}ZnSnS{sub 4} under Cu-poor/Zn-rich conditions will be optimal and the formation of Cu{sub 2}ZnSn(S,Se){sub 4} alloy will be beneficial in improving solar cell performance.

Since the development of the laser researchers have been using it as a stroboscopic tool to observe how the world works. Research and development efforts leading towards the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) free-electron laser have facilitated the construction of a new accelerator-based femtosecond x-ray source, the Sub-Picosecond Pulse Source (SPPS) which extends our ability to capture transient phenomena at atomic-scale resolution. In order to produce femtosecond x-ray bursts, electron bunches at SLAC are chirped and then sent through a series of energy-dispersive magnetic chicanes, yielding 80-fs electron pulses. These are then transported through an undulator to create sub-100-femtosecond x-ray pulses at 8-10 keV and 107 photons/second.

NREL researchers use imaging technologies to broaden NREL researchers use imaging technologies to broaden knowledge of plant cell wall structures and identify ideal pretreatment of plant material. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and BioEnergy Science Center combined different microscopic imaging methods to gain a greater understanding of the relationships between biomass cell wall structure and enzyme digestibility. This breakthrough could lead to optimizing sugar yields and lowering the costs of making biofuels. Using the new approach, NREL researchers discovered the localization of the enzymes responsible for deconstruction of the cell wall polymers and the effects of enzyme action on the cell wall. Unlike traditional composition analysis, the new methods allow access to

Researchers create a way to prepare doped nanocrystal Researchers create a way to prepare doped nanocrystal solutions for solar thin films that are nontoxic and less expensive than heavy metal-based thin films. Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Minnesota have developed a method for preparing doped colloids (solutions) of silicon nanocrystals (NCs) as potential nontoxic infrared-absorbing and -emitting alternatives to metal chalcogenide quantum dots. Significant progress in the methods for preparing thin films of semiconductor NCs has recently led to very promising results in which metal chalcogenide (cadmium selenide, lead sulfide, etc.) NC thin films are used as the photoactive layer in solar cells, photodetectors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and related technologies.

Scientists Identify New Family of Iron-Based Absorber Materials for Solar Cells (Fact Sheet), NREL Highlights, Science  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Use of Earth-abundant materials in solar absorber films is critical for expanding the reach of photovoltaic (PV) technologies. The use of Earth-abundant and inexpensive Fe in PV was proposed more than 25 years ago in the form of FeS{sub 2} pyrite - fool's gold. Unfortunately, the material has been plagued by performance problems that to this day are both persistent and not well understood. Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Oregon State University, working collaboratively in the Center for Inverse Design, an Energy Frontier Research Center, have uncovered several new insights into the problems of FeS{sub 2}. They have used these advances to propose and implement design rules that can be used to identify new Fe-containing materials that can circumvent the limitations of FeS{sub 2} pyrite. The team has identified that it is the unavoidable metallic secondary phases and surface defects coexisting near the FeS{sub 2} thin-film surfaces and grain boundaries that limit its open-circuit voltage, rather than the S vacancies in the bulk, which has long been commonly assumed. The materials Fe{sub 2}SiS{sub 4} and Fe{sub 2}GeS{sub 4} hold considerable promise as PV absorbers. The ternary Si compound is especially attractive, as it contains three of the more abundant low-cost elements available today. The band gap (E{sub g} = 1.5 eV) from both theory and experiment is higher than those of c-Si and FeS{sub 2}, offering better absorption of the solar spectrum and potentially higher solar cell efficiencies. More importantly, these materials do not have metallic secondary phase problems as seen in FeS{sub 2}. High calculated formation energies of donor-type defects are consistent with p-type carriers in thin films and are prospects for high open-circuit voltages in cells.

Highlights and Conclusions of the Chalonge 14th Paris Cosmology Colloquium 2010: `The Standard Model of the Universe: Theory and Observations'

The Chalonge 14th Paris Cosmology Colloquium was held on 22-24 July 2010 in Paris Observatory on the Standard Model of the Universe: News from WMAP7, BICEP, QUAD, SPT, AMI, ACT, Planck, QUIJOTE and Herschel; dark matter (DM) searches and galactic observations; related theory and simulations. %aiming synthesis, progress and clarification. P Biermann, D Boyanovsky, A Cooray, C Destri, H de Vega, G Gilmore, S Gottlober, E Komatsu, S McGaugh, A Lasenby, R Rebolo, P Salucci, N Sanchez and A Tikhonov present here their highlights of the Colloquium. Inflection points emerged: LambdaWDM (Warm DM) emerges impressively over LambdaCDM whose galactic scale problems are ever-increasing. Summary and conclusions by H. J. de Vega, M. C. Falvella and N. G. Sanchez stress among other points: (i) Primordial CMB gaussianity is confirmed. Inflation effective theory predicts a tensor to scalar ratio 0.05-0.04 at reach/border line of next CMB observations, early fast-roll inflation provides lowest multipoles depression. SZ amplitudes are smaller than expected: CMB and X-ray data agree but intracluster models need revision and relaxed/non-relaxed clusters distinction. (ii) cosmic ray positron excess is explained naturally by astrophysical processes, annihilating/decaying dark matter needs growing tailoring. (iii) Cored (non cusped) DM halos and warm (keV scale mass) DM are increasingly favored from theory and observations, naturally producing observed small scale structures, wimps turn strongly disfavoured. LambdaWDM 1 keV simulations well reproduce observations. Evidence that LambdaCDM does not work at small scales is staggering. P Biermann presents his live minutes of the Colloquium and concludes that a keV sterile neutrino is the most interesting DM candidate. Photos of the Colloquium are included.

The University of California and the mobilization of science for national defense  

SciTech Connect

The discovery of fission gave new urgency to the mobilization of science in World War II. In particular, its potential for an explosive release of subatomic energy gave pause to the scientists who organized the National Defense Research Committee (NDRC) and its successor, the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD). These organizations were responsible for placing the scientific talent of the nation in the service of national defense, for at that time the vast majority of scientists were employed in private industry and private and public academic institutions. One of the largest academic institutions to be mobilized was the University of California, which provided the research and development for the electromagnetic method of uranium isotope separation for the first atomic bomb, and operated a new laboratory for the design of nuclear weapons at Los Alamos. The mobilization of the University of California had far-reaching consequences. The University has operated Los Alamos for almost 50 years, and Livermore ever since it was recreated as a second weapons laboratory in 1952. In what follows, I hope to indicate how the partnership between the government and the University was created, and how this affected national security decision-making in the war and post-war eras.

Technetium production: a feasibility study for Texas A&M University nuclear science center  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The affordability and feasibility of the production of the metastable nuclide of technetium (Tc-99m) by neutron capture activation of molybdenum trioxide (with a subsequent solvent extraction) has been explored for the Texas A&M University, Nuclear Science Center (NSC). The primary impetus for exploring the possibility of producing Tc-99m is the interest expressed by the University's College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM). Currently, the CVM receives partially depleted Tc-99m generators from a local vendor, free-of-charge. However, the future status of this supply is unclear and the need for an alternative source needs to be addressed. Also, the CVM expects sufficient growth so that the donated generators cannot meet their anticipated need. Two experiments performed at the NSC explored the ability to produce Tc99m for the CVM and provided data for estimating production costs. These experiments entailed the irradiation of molybdenum trioxide and the separation of Tc99m from the irradiated targets. In addition, the experiments determined the optimum solvent volumes, the effects of a subsequent extraction, and measured the loss in recovery when an oxidizing agent (hydrogen peroxide) was eliminated from the extraction procedure. These results have not previously been reported. The feasibility of production was determined by comparing a local hospital's cost for Tc-99m, delivered by a local vendor, to the production costs at the NSC. The production cost for Tc-99m is based on a modified NSC irradiation price listing, chemical costs, and miscellaneous costs based upon the Tc-99m activity requirement of 1 1. I GBq per day by the CVM. A cost for initial setup was also determined. This research also revealed additional obtaining Tc-99m. A low activity separation showed a mean recovery of 66.9 ?1. 1 % for Tc-99m over a five-day extraction period. The optimum solvent volume to aqueous volume ratio for a first and second extraction was determined from an additional separation experiment to be 0.6 and 0.2, respectively. The second experiment also demonstrated a 20.9 % reduction in percent-recovery when the oxidizing agent was eliminated.

Advanced neutron irradiation system using Texas A&M University Nuclear Science Center Reactor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A heavily filtered fast neutron irradiation system (FNIS) was developed for a variety of applications, including the study of long-term health effects of fast neutrons by evaluating the biological mechanisms of damage in cultured cells and living animals such as rats or mice. This irradiation system includes an exposure cave made with a lead-bismuth alloy, a cave positioning system, a gamma and neutron monitoring system, a sample transfer system, and interchangeable filters. This system was installed in the irradiation cell of the Texas A&M University Nuclear Science Center Reactor (NSCR). By increasing the thickness of the lead-bismuth alloy, the neutron spectra were shifted into lower energies by the scattering interactions of fast neutrons with the alloy. It is possible, therefore, by changing the alloy thickness, to produce distinctly different dose weighted neutron spectra inside the exposure cave of the FNIS. The calculated neutron spectra showed close agreement with the results of activation foil measurements, unfolded by SAND-II close to the cell window. However, there was a considerable less agreement for locations far away from the cell window. Even though the magnitude of values such as neutron flux and tissue kerma rates in air differed, the weighted average neutron energies showed close agreement between the MCNP and SAND-II since the normalized neutron spectra were in a good agreement each other. A paired ion chamber system was constructed, one with a tissue equivalent plastic (A-150) and propane gas for total dose monitoring, and another with graphite and argon for photon dose monitoring. Using the pair of detectors, the neutron to gamma ratio can be inferred. With the 20 cm-thick FNIS, the absorbed dose rates of neutrons measured with the paired ion chamber method and calculated with the SAND-II results were 13.7 ?? 0.02 Gy/min and 15.5 Gy/min, respectively. The absorbed dose rate of photons and the gamma contribution to total dose were 6.7??10-1 ?? 1.3??10-1 Gy/min and 4.7%, respectively. However, the estimated gamma contribution to total dose varied between 3.6 % to 6.6 % as the assumed neutron sensitivity to the graphite detector was changed from 0.01 to 0.03.

Similar to the way light reflecting off an object enters your eyes to create an image, the neutron beams diffracted by the crystals' atoms yield information about the positions of the atoms. The scientists used that information to infer the material's electronic structure, and repeated the experiment at gradually warmer temperatures."

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

July 8, 1999 July 8, 1999 Highlights World Oil Markets/Prices Prices. Despite a substantial increase in spot prices for crude oil at the very end of June (Figure 1), we have not significantly changed our crude price forecast for this update. We have raised our price forecast slightly for the next couple of months (Figure 2). However, the story is essentially the same: the combination of demand and supply changes will probably prevent even a normal seasonal increase in world oil inventories this year, resulting in a net inventory draw averaging over 800,000 barrels per day for all of 1999. Prices are expected to remain more or less flat until the end of the summer when world demand begins to exhibit some of the larger year-over-year increases expected for 1999. From that point, we see prices rising gradually through 2000 as

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

(STEO) (STEO) Highlights  Falling crude oil prices contributed to a decline in the U.S. regular gasoline retail price from a year-to-date high of $3.78 per gallon on February 25 to $3.52 per gallon on April 29. EIA expects the regular gasoline price will average $3.53 per gallon over the summer (April through September), down $0.10 per gallon from last month's STEO. The annual average regular gasoline retail price is projected to decline from $3.63 per gallon in 2012 to $3.50 per gallon in 2013 and to $3.39 per gallon in 2014. Energy price forecasts are highly uncertain, and the current values of futures and options contracts suggest that prices could

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

December, 1998 ( Released December 7, 1998) December, 1998 ( Released December 7, 1998) Highlights Overview Several developments in recent weeks have combined to weaken energy demand and prices in the United States. The first two months of what we normally call the "heating season" have been short on one key component - heating demand. Generally speaking, heating degree-days fell below normal across the United States in October and November. Based on early observations and the recent short-range forecast, we expect that below-normal heating demand is likely for December as well (Figure 1). With demand sputtering, heating fuel stocks remain high and prices remain low. This is particularly evident with respect to the U.S. natural gas market. Expectations for wellhead gas prices consistently above $2.00 per thousand cubic feet may have been all

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

1998 1998 Highlights Oil Prices/Supply The recent production cuts announced by OPEC and other producers have stabilized prices in the $12 to $13 per barrel range, but the market is a long way from achieving the $17 "target price" being talked about in OPEC circles. Prior to the recent cuts, oil prices had been near $11.50 to $ 12 per barrel. Unless prices rebound by October, the upcoming winter heating season may not be sufficient to increase prices given the current stock overhang. Our current view is that prices will remain low with a gradual increase throughout the next year where we see the oil market finally coming into balance. Even though world oil demand is forecast to recover significantly in 1999, only a "moderate" price recovery is forecast because of the inventory overhang still remaining.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

1998 1998 Highlights World Oil Markets The large oil inventory build-up that occurred in 1997 and the first half of 1998 is expected to keep a lid on how high oil prices might increase from their historically low levels. However, the oil production cuts pledged by major oil producers in June, along with some expected recovery in oil demand in 1999, should allow the average annual world oil price (defined as the average price U.S. refiners pay for imported crude oil) to rise from an average of $12.51 per barrel in 1998 to $13.65 per barrel next year (see Figure 1 and Table). Beginning in the second half of 1998, and carrying through 1999, the world oil market should see a more "typical" oil inventory pattern, with drawdowns from oil inventories of approximately 1 million barrels per day in the fourth and first

Laser programs highlights 1993  

SciTech Connect

Over the last two decades, the scope of our laser research has grown immensely. The small, low-power laser systems of our early days have given way to laser systems of record-breaking size and power. Now we are focusing our activities within the target physics and laser science programs to support the ignition and gain goals of the proposed glass-laser National Ignition Facility. In our laser isotope separation work, we completed the most important set of experiments in the history of the AVLIS Program in 1993, which culminated in a spectacularly successful run that met or exceeded all our objectives. We are also developing lasers and laser-related technologies for a variety of energy, commercial, and defense uses. On the horizon are transfers of important technologies for waste treatment, x-ray lithography, communications and security, optical imaging, and remote sensing, among others.

Foreign nationals who receive science or engineering Ph.D.`s from US universities: Stay rates and characteristics of stayers  

SciTech Connect

This report studies the behavior of foreign nationals who received Ph.D. degrees in science or engineering from US universities during the period 1984--1990. It addresses two distinct questions: What proportion of foreign students stay to work in the United States after graduation; and do foreign students who leave the United States differ from those who stay? Descriptive statistics are provided to answer the first question. These estimates of stay rates have small margins of error because they were produced from the tax payment records of the Social Security Administration. The estimates of stay rates in also provide a partial answer to the second question as well as we are able to provide stay rates for different degree fields and different countries of citizenship, thereby identifying country-specific and field-specific differences in stay rates.

[{sup 13}N] Ammonia Cardiac Program At West Virginia University Health Sciences  

SciTech Connect

Due to the shortage of the more traditional cardiac imagining isotopes, specifically, Technicium-99, the Cardiologists at WVU have had to look to alternative imagining techniques such as PET. This has led to a dramatic increase in the use of [{sup 13}N] Ammonia PET scans at the Health Sciences Center. The patient load has gone from one to two patients one day a week to typically two to three patients, two days a week, with occasional add-on in-house patients; each patient typically requiring two target irradiations. In this paper, we will discuss the process that is being used to meet this increased demand from the production of the isotope through the final result.

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The AERI instrument is an advanced version of the high spectral resolution interferometer sounder (HIS) designed and fabricated at the University of Wisconsin (Revercomb et al. 1988) to measure upwelling infrared radiances from an aircraft. The AERI is a fully automated ground-based passive infrared interferometer that measures downwelling atmospheric radiance from 3.3 - 18.2 mm (550 - 3000 cm-1) at less than 10-minute temporal resolution with a spectral resolution of one wavenumber. It has been used in DOEs Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program. Much of the data available here at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), an institute within the University of Wisconsins Space Science and Engineering Center, may also be available in the ARM Archive. On this website, data and images from six different field experiments are available, along with AERIPLUS realtime data for the Madison, Wisconsin location. Realtime data includes temperature and water vapor time-height cross sections, SKEWT diagrams, convective stability indices, and displays from a rooftop Lidar instrument. The field experiments took place in Oaklahoma and Wisconsin with the AERI prototype.

The abstract of the talk is "Based on an extension to plasmas of Ertel's classical vorticity theorem in fluid dynamics, it is shown that for each species in a multi-fluid plasma there can be constructed a set of nested surfaces that have this species' fluid particles confined within them. Variational formulations for the plasma evolution and its equilibrium states are developed, based on the new surfaces and all of the dynamical conservation laws associated with them.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

Year in Review W ith prices reaching post-Gulf War highs and inventories falling to below average levels in many regions, 1996 proved to be a remarkable year in international crude oil markets. Major influences included the effects of a harsh and unusually long winter across North America and Europe that rever- berated through global crude oil and finished prod- ucts markets well after the end of the season. The ongoing strong demand for heating fuels fed demand for crude oil at a time of trim inventories for both products. Aggravating the situation, global wellhead production rates of crude oil remained essentially static and resulted in a period of significant price increases that lasted through the end of April. Market prices eased in the United States and abroad as global
