What properties of grid energy storage are most valuable?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

While energy storage technologies have existed for decades, fast-ramping grid-level storage is still an immature industry and is experiencing relatively rapid improvements in performance and cost across a variety of technologies. In this innovation cycle, it is important to determine which properties of emerging energy storage technologies are most valuable. Decreased capital cost, increased power capability, and increased efficiency all would improve the value of an energy storage technology and each has cost implications that vary by application, but there has not yet been an investigation of the marginal rate of technical substitution between storage properties. We use engineering-economic models of four emerging fast-ramping energy storage technologies and examine their cost-effectiveness for four realistic current applications. We determine which properties have the greatest effect on cost-of-service by performing an extended sensitivity analysis on the storage properties for combinations of application and storage type. We find that capital cost of storage is consistently important, and identify applications for which power/energy limitations are important. Each combination is different and blanket statements are not always appropriate.

Worker productivity rises with energy efficiency  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Many American companies have found that saving energy and cutting pollution dramatically improves the bottom line. But beyond these gains, businesses that launch energy efficiency programs to save money are often astonished to discover unforeseen benefits: energy efficient lighting, heating, cooling, motors, and industrial processes can increase worker productivity, decrease absenteeism, and improve the quality of work performed. Profits created by the jump in worker productivity can exceed energy savings by a factor of ten. Energy efficiency and pollution prevention represent the next wave in manufacturing, following the quality revolution launched by the Japanese in the 1960s. Unless America leads the lean and clean revolution, economic health will be undermined as other countries develop clean processes and products and US companies suffer competitively. Also, developing countries will leapfrog their wasteful model and buy products and manufacturing processes from foreign firms already practicing lean and clean.

Modeling of capacitance transients of thin-film solar cells: A valuable tool to gain information on perturbing layers or interfaces  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Thin-film electronic and photovoltaic devices often comprise, in addition to the anticipated p-n junctions, additional non-ideal ohmic contacts between layers. This may give rise to additional signals in capacitance spectroscopy techniques that are not directly related to defects in the structure. In this paper, we present a fitting algorithm for transient signals arising from such an additional junction. The fitting results are in excellent agreement with the diode characteristics extracted from static measurements on individual components. Finally, the algorithm is applied for determining the barriers associated with anomalous signals reported for selected CuIn{sub 1–x}Ga{sub x}Se{sub 2} and CdTe solar cells.

Healthcare organization–education partnerships and career ladder programs for health care workers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Increasing concerns about quality of care and workforce shortages have motivated health care organizations and educational institutions to partner to create career ladders for frontline health care workers. Career ladders reward workers for gains in skills and knowledge and may reduce the costs associated with turnover, improve patient care, and/or address projected shortages of certain nursing and allied health professions. This study examines partnerships between health care and educational organizations in the United States during the design and implementation of career ladder training programs for low-skill workers in health care settings, referred to as frontline health care workers. Mixed methods data from 291 frontline health care workers and 347 key informants (e.g., administrators, instructors, managers) collected between 2007 and 2010 were analyzed using both regression and fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (QCA). Results suggest that different combinations of partner characteristics, including having an education leader, employer leader, frontline management support, partnership history, community need, and educational policies, were necessary for high worker career self-efficacy and program satisfaction. Whether a worker received a wage increase, however, was primarily dependent on leadership within the health care organization, including having an employer leader and employer implementation policies. Findings suggest that strong partnerships between health care and educational organizations can contribute to the successful implementation of career ladder programs, but workers' ability to earn monetary rewards for program participation depends on the strength of leadership support within the health care organization.

Former Worker Program - Beryllium Testing  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Beryllium Testing Beryllium Testing Former Worker Medical Screening Program (FWP) Beryllium is a naturally occurring metal and is not radioactive. Because of its properties, beryllium has been part of the atomic energy and nuclear weapons industries since the 1940s. Exposure to beryllium and certain beryllium compounds can result in beryllium sensitization, which may develop into a disease of the lungs called chronic beryllium disease (CBD). Beryllium sensitization is an "allergic" condition to beryllium that can develop primarily after a person breathes air containing beryllium mists, dusts, and fumes. Even brief or small exposures to beryllium can lead to sensitization and/or CBD. However, most people exposed to beryllium will NOT get the disease. Other beryllium-related disorders can affect the skin, liver, spleen, heart, eye, or kidney. These disorders often occur in the presence of CBD.

Graphene as Gain Medium for Broadband Lasers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In contrast to conventional structures, efficient non-radiative carrier recombination counteracts the appearance of optical gain in graphene. Based on a microscopic and fully quantum-mechanical study of the coupled carrier, phonon, and photon dynamics in graphene, we present a strategy to obtain a long-lived gain: Integrating graphene into a photonic crystal nanocavity and applying a high-dielectric substrate gives rise to pronounced coherent light emission suggesting the design of graphene-based laser devices covering a broad spectral range.

Superradiance and collective gain in multimode optomechanics  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We present a description of a strongly driven multimode optomechanical system that shows the emergence of cooperative effects usually known from systems of atom-light interaction. Our calculations show that under application of a coherent pump field the system's response can be switched from a superradiant regime to a collective gain regime by varying the frequency detuning of the pump. In the superradiant regime, enhanced optical cooling of a single vibrational mode is possible, whereas the collective gain regime would potentially enable one to achieve almost thresholdless phonon laser action. The threshold pumping power scales as 1/N.

Information Gains from Cosmic Microwave Background Experiments  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

To shed light on the fundamental problems posed by Dark Energy and Dark Matter, a large number of experiments have been performed and combined to constrain cosmological models. We propose a novel way of quantifying the information gained by updates on the parameter constraints from a series of experiments which can either complement earlier measurements or replace them. For this purpose, we use the Kullback-Leibler divergence or relative entropy from information theory to measure differences in the posterior distributions in model parameter space from a pair of experiments. We apply this formalism to a historical series of Cosmic Microwave Background experiments ranging from Boomerang to WMAP, SPT, and Planck. Considering different combinations of these experiments, we thus estimate the information gain in units of bits and distinguish contributions from the reduction of statistical errors and the `surprise' corresponding to a significant shift of the parameters' central values. For this experiment series, we...

Predicting Worker Exposure from a Glovebox Leak  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is difficult to predict immediate worker radiological consequences from a hypothetical accident. This is recognized in DOE safety analysis guidance and the reason such guidance does not call for quantitative determinations of such consequences. However, it would be useful to at least have a means of systematically and formally quantifying worker dose to be able to identify the relative risks of various processes and to provide an order-of-magnitude impression of absolute consequences. In this report, we present such a means in the form of a simple calculation model that is easily applied and generates reasonable, qualitative dose predictions. The model contains a scaling parameter whose value was deduced from extensive laboratory ventilation flow rate measurements performed at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) over the last several years and from recent indoor radioactive contamination dispersion measurements, also at LANL. Application of the model is illustrated with the aid of two example calculations.

Agreement between fixed-ratio and lower limit of normal spirometry interpretation protocols decreases with age - Is there a need for a new gold standard? Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, 55(7): 802-808, 2013. To assess concordance between the fixed 70% ratio cutoff point with the fixed percent predicted values (Fixed-ratio) and the lower limit of normal (LLN) algorithms in interpreting spirometry results in an older population, spirometries were interpreted using Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey reference equations for 2,319 workers. The Fixed-ratio algorithm characterized 34.5% (n=801) results as abnormal, compared with 29.7% (n=689) by the LLN. There were almost twice as many obstructive and mixed airways spirometries identified under the Fixed-ratio compared to LLN. Rates of restrictive pattern physiology were virtually the same under each algorithm. Overall agreement between the algorithms decreased with age from "almost perfect" for those younger than 60 years to "substantial" for those older than 80 years. This study found age-related discordance between two algorithms possibly related to the lack of reference equations and standards for individuals older than 80 years.

Theory of laser-amplifier linear gain  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The theory of small-signal laser amplification is developed for homogeneously broadened systems in which the three main decay rates, for the collective atomic dipole moment, the population inversion, and the field in the laser cavity, have arbitrary relative magnitudes. The calculations extend previous work on class-A and -B lasers, where the dipole decay rate greatly exceeds the other two rates, to class-C lasers, where the dipole decay rate is comparable to the others. The free-running laser is assumed to excite a single longitudinal mode of the cavity, whose frequency generally differs from that of the coupled atomic transition. The linear gains of the laser are derived for input signals whose frequencies are close to that of the lasing mode or to one of its adjacent nonlasing longitudinal modes. Divergences in the gain that occur for these two arrangements are associated with the previously studied single-mode and multimode instabilities of the free-running laser, respectively.

Determining window solar heat gain coefficient  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The solar heat gain characteristics of fenestration systems impact daytime building energy performance, occupant comfort and utility load demands. A measure of the fraction of available solar energy entering a building interior per unit window area is defined as the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). Together with a window's thermal transmittance (U-value), the SHGC is used to compare fenestration products, and it allows for the calculation of energy rating number and annual energy performance. The need to measure and compared advances in window technology has led to the development of experimental and analytical methods for the determination of SHGC performance. Several test facilities currently or previously capable of performing SHGC measurements exist worldwide. Results experimentally determined using these facilities have provided design data for handbook tables, and have been instrumental in the development and validation of predictive analytical methods and computer simulation tools. However, these facilities have operated without a standard test procedure for SHGC performance. Consequently, recent efforts have been focused on developing consensus test procedures for the evaluation of window energy performance.

Information gain versus coupling strength in quantum measurements  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We investigate the relationship between the information gain and the interaction strength between the quantum system and the measuring device. A strategy is proposed to calculate the information gain of the measuring device as the coupling strength is a variable. For qubit systems, we prove that the information gain increases monotonically with the coupling strength. It is obtained that the information gain of the projective measurement along the x-direction reduces with the increasing of the measurement strength along the z-direction, and a complementarity of information gain in the measurements along those two directions is presented.

Progress toward high-gain laser fusion  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A 1985-1986 Review of the US inertial confinement fusion program by the National Academy of Sciences concluded that five more years might be required to obtain enough data to determine the future course of the program. Since then, data from the Nova laser and from the Halite/Centurion program have resolved most of the outstanding problems identified by the NAS review. In particular, we now believe that we can produce a sufficiently uniform target; that we can keep the energy content in hot electrons and high-energy photons low enough (/approximately/1--10% of drive energy, depending on target design) and achieve enough pulse-shaping accuracy (/approximately/10%, with a dynamic range of 100:1) to keep the fuel on a near-Fermi-degenerate adiabat; that we can produce an /approximately/100-Mbar pressure pulse of sufficient uniformity (/approximately/1%), and can we control hydrodynamic instabilities so that the mix of the pusher into the hot spot is low enough to permit marginal ignition. These results are sufficiently encouraging that the US Department of Energy is planning to complete a 10-MJ laboratory microfusion facility to demonstrate high-gain ICF in the laboratory within a decade. 22 refs., 1 fig.

Electric top drives gain wide industry acceptance  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Since its introduction, the top drive drilling system has gained acceptance as a productive and safe method for drilling oil and gas wells. Originally, the system was used mostly for offshore and higher cost land drilling, and it had to be installed as a permanent installation because of its enormous weight and size. Essentially, a top drive replaces the kelly and rotary table as the means of rotating drillpipe on oil, gas and geothermal rigs and is considered to be 15% to 40% more efficient than a kelly drive. Top drive systems allow the operator to drill and maintain directional orientation for triple stands and provide tripping efficiency because of the ability to ream and circulate with triple stands, to reduce the risk of stuck pipe or lost wells, and to improve well control and pipe handling safety. The paper describes electric top drives with DC motors, top drives with AC motors, top drives with permanent magnet motors, and top drives with permanent magnet brushless synchronous motors.

Because former workers undertook essential activities to fulfill the Department's mission, many of them were at risk for lung cancer. Through the FWP, DOE initiated the Early Lung Cancer Detection (ELCD) program using low-dose helical CT scans to detect lung cancers at an earlier, more treatable stage. Lung cancer results in about 160,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. The most common causes of lung cancer are long-term exposures to tobacco smoke and residential radon emissions, but occupational hazards, such as asbestos and ionizing radiation, also cause or contribute to the disease.

Gain properties of dye-doped polymer thin films  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The demonstration of an electrically pumped organic laser remains a major issue of organic optoelectronics for several decades. Nowadays, hybrid pumping seems a promising compromise where the organic material is optically pumped by an electrically pumped inorganic device on chip. This technical solution requires therefore an optimization of the organic gain medium under optical pumping. Here, we report a detailed study of gain features of dye-doped polymer thin films, in particular we introduce the gain efficiency $K$, in order to facilitate comparison between material and experimental conditions. First, we measure the bulk gain by the means of a pump-probe setup, and then present in details several factors which modify the actual gain of the layer, namely the confinement factor, the pump polarization, the molecular anisotropy, and the re-absorption. The usual model to evaluate the gain leads to an overestimation by more than one order of magnitude, which stresses the importance to design the devices accordin...

Use of a photonic crystal for optical amplifier gain control  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An optical amplifier having a uniform gain profile uses a photonic crystal to tune the density-of-states of a gain medium so as to modify the light emission rate between atomic states. The density-of-states of the gain medium is tuned by selecting the size, shape, dielectric constant, and spacing of a plurality of microcavity defects in the photonic crystal. The optical amplifier is particularly useful for the regeneration of DWDM signals in long optical fibers.

Beryllium contamination inside vehicles of machine shop workers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Inhalation of beryllium particles causes a chronic, debilitating lung disease--chronic beryllium disease (CBD)--in immunologically sensitized workers. Evidence that very low concentrations of beryllium may initiate this chronic disease is provided by incidences of the illness in family members exposed to beryllium dust from workers` clothes and residents in neighborhoods surrounding beryllium refineries. This article describes the results of a cross-sectional survey to evaluate potential take-home beryllium exposures by measuring surface concentrations on the hands and in vehicles of workers at a precision machine shop where cases of CBD had recently been diagnosed. Many workers did not change out of their work clothes and shoes at the end of their shift, increasing the risk of taking beryllium home to their families. Wipe samples collected from workers` hands and vehicle surfaces were analyzed for beryllium content by inductively coupled argon plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). The results ranged widely, from nondetectable to 40 {micro}g/ft{sup 2} on workers` hands and up to 714 {micro}g/fg{sup 2} inside their vehicles, demonstrating that many workers carried residual beryllium on their hands and contaminated the inside of their vehicles when leaving work. The highest beryllium concentrations inside the workers` vehicles were found on the drivers` floor (GM = 19 {micro}g/ft{sup 2}, GSD = 4.9), indicating that workers were carrying beryllium on their shoes into their vehicles. A safe level of beryllium contamination on surfaces is not known, but it is prudent to reduce the potential for workers to carry beryllium away from the work site.

Abstract We investigate the shareholder wealth effects of 306 foreign direct investment (FDI) announcements by UK firms in seventy-five emerging markets (EM). Our results show that acquirers enjoy highly significant gains during the announcement period of FDI. Perhaps surprisingly, the highest gains are accrued to acquirers investing in countries with high political risk and high corruption ratings. The type of asset acquired has also a significant effect on the gains of acquirers’ shareholders, with the highest gains accrued to acquirers of physical assets. Also, investments in physical assets in EM with a high corruption rating elicit the highest gains. We contend that UK firms following resource-seeking strategies in EM with a high corruption rating are facilitated access to resources on favorable terms and this is viewed positively by the market participants. Our results are robust to alternative model specifications and the endogenous choice to expand internationally.

New recommended heat gains for commercial cooking equipment  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Radiant heat gain from cooking equipment can significantly impact the air-conditioning load and/or human comfort in a commercial kitchen. This paper presents and discusses updated heat gain data for several types of commercial cooking equipment based on recent testing by gas and electric utility research organizations. The cooking equipment was tested under exhaust-only, wall-canopy hoods. The fundamentals of appliance heat gain are reviewed and the new data are compared with data published in the 1993 ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals, chapter 26, nonresidential cooling and heating load calculations. These updated data are now incorporated in the 1997 ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals, chapter 28, nonresidential cooling and heating load calculations. The paper also discusses appliance heat gain with respect to sizing air-conditioning systems for commercial kitchens and presents representative radiant factors that may be used to estimate heat gain from other sizes or types of gas and electric cooking equipment when appliance specific heat gain data are not avoidable.

Investigation of gain kinetics in a CO gas dynamic laser  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A detailed experimental investigation of small-signal gain in a CO gasdynamic laser, produced in a shock tunnel is presented. Gains of the P/sub 7/(3) transition were measured at a distance 44 cm downstream from the nozzle throat for various CO--Ar and CO--N/sub 2/--Ar mixtures at stagnation temperatures of 1800/sup 0/--3800 /sup 0/K and stagnation pressures of 18--40 atm. Optimum gas temperatures and compositions were observed. Laser oscillations were observed simultaneously in two cavities located at 44 and 56 cm downstream from the nozzle throat. The experimental data on gain have been compared with a numerical model. A quantitatively good argeement between calculations and experiments was found which permits the utilization of the mathematical model for a better understanding of the processes involved in the laser operation. Small signal gains and multi-line laser power outputs were calculated along the nozzle for various initial conditions. Calculations indicate that maximum gain and maximum power occur for P/sub 3/(4)-P/sub 5/(4) lines at a stagnation temperature of about 3000 /sup 0/K and a gas composition of CO:Ar = 20:80.

The JOTG was established in 2009 under the premise that agencies/programs with common goals can work together by combining resources and coordinating outreach efforts. Each involved agency has a different mission, but the missions are complementary. By working together, the agencies are better able to serve the DOE workforce. The JOTG focuses on educating the former workers on the programs and resources available to them.

Unitizing worker expertise and maximizing the brain reward centers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

People are experts when it comes to the work they do; unfortunately their expertise is not utilized as frequently as it could be. More opportunities need to be provided that allow people to participate in the design of their work including: accident investigations, job planning, and process improvements. Many employers use some form of job hazard analysis process to identify and document hazards and controls, but the front line worker is rarely involved. This presentation will show the core principles supporting employee involvement, provide examples where workers had brilliant ideas but no one listened, and provide examples where workers were given the opportunity to use their expertise to improve occupational safety. According to Abraham Maslow's Hierarch of Needs model, one essential human need is to be innovative and solve problems. Advances in brain science have proven, through functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, the brain reward pathway is activated when people are recognized for their intellectual contributions. As people contribute their expertise to improve occupational safety more frequently they will feel a sense of gratification. In addition, safety professionals will have more time to spend on strategic planning of emerging occupational safety issues. One effect of the current global recession is that SH&E professionals are asked to do more with less. Therefore, to be successful it is essential that SH&E professionals incorporate worker expertise in job planning. This will be illustrated in the presentation through an example where a worker had the answer to a difficult decision on appropriate personal protective equipment for a job but no one asked the worker for his idea during the job planning phase. Fortunately the worker was eventually consulted and his recommendation for the appropriate personal protective equipment for the job was implemented before work began. The goal of this presentation is to expand the awareness and knowledge of SH&E professionals on the benefits and opportunities for leveraging brain science. This will include an overview of the components of the brain reward pathway and the biological mechanisms that make workers feel a sense of gratification when they contribute their ideas toward improving occupational safety. On-the-job examples where it is hypothesized that the brain reward pathway was activated in workers will be provided. Finally, the presentation will include a model illustrating the importance of empowering workers to participate in occupational safety programs. SH&E professionals can use this model to maintain a robust safety and health program with limited resources. The model will also help SH&E professionals prepare for challenges in the SH&E fields by showing them how to allocate more time for strategic planning of emerging issues. Many recent best selling business books such as Wikinomics, Crowdsourcing, and Sway, illustrate how the benefit of harnessing the collective knowledge of employees is a key to company success. Companies like Google and Pixar have mastered the ability to capture empFoyee knowledge in terms of technology. Why should occupational safety be any different? Workers know how to improve safety in their workplace. SH&E professionals can harness this collective safety knowledge just as top companies do with technology, and workers will feel grateful for contributing.

Patterns of coal workers' pneumoconiosis in Appalachian former coal miners  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To aid in diagnostic chest film interpretation of coal workers' pneumoconiosis, a composite profile of common radiologic patterns was developed in 98 Appalachian former coal miners who were diagnosed as having coal miner's pneumoconiosis and who applied for black lung benefits. The mean age was 61 years, with a lifetime coal mine dust exposure of 18.7 years. Results showed that chest radiographs of coal workers' simple pneumoconiosis contained small irregular linear opacities more frequently (47%) than small rounded opacities. Sparse profusion of all small opacities was the rule. Small opacities involved two out of six lung zones simultaneously 39% of the time while other combinations occurred less frequently. Lower zones were involved more frequently than upper ones. Thickened pleura occurred in 18% of radiographs. Other frequent radiographic abnormalities were parenchymal calcifications (19%), marked emphysema (12%), and inactive tuberculosis (12%). Calcification of the aortic knob, a degenerative process reflecting age, occurred in 9%. Only one instance of complicated coal workers' pneumoconiosis (progressive massive fibrosis) was encountered (0.7%). Many of the descriptive features of coal workers' pneumoconiosis noted in the literature were not observed in this study. Only one instance of complicated pneumoconiosis was encountered.43 references.

Integrating The Non-Electrical Worker Into The Electrical Safety Program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The intent of this paper is to demonstrate an electrical safety program that incorporates all workers into the program, not just the electrical workers. It is largely in response to a paper presented at the 2012 ESW by Lanny Floyd entitled "Facilitating Application of Electrical Safety Best Practices to "Other" Workers" which requested all attendees to review their electrical safety program to assure that non-electrical workers were protected as well as electrical workers. The referenced paper indicated that roughly 50% of electrical incidents involve workers whose primary function is not electrical in nature. It also encouraged all to "address electrical safety for all workers and not just workers whose job responsibilities involve working on or near energized electrical circuits." In this paper, a program which includes specific briefings to non-electrical workers as well as to workers who may need to perform their normal activities in proximity to energized electrical conductors is presented. The program uses a targeted approach to specific areas such as welding, excavating, rigging, chart reading, switching, cord and plug equipment and several other general areas to point out hazards that may exist and how to avoid them. NFPA 70E-2004 was incorporated into the program several years ago and with it the need to include the "other" workers became apparent. The site experience over the years supports the assertion that about half of the electrical incidents involve non-electrical workers and this prompted us to develop specific briefings to enhance the knowledge of the non-electrical worker regarding safe electrical practices. The promotion of "May is Electrical Safety Month" and the development of informative presentations which are delivered to the general site population as well as electrical workers have greatly improved the hazards awareness status of the general worker on site.

We investigate heat-pumped single-mode amplifiers of quantized fields in high-Q cavities based on non-inverted two-level systems. Their power generation is shown to crucially depend on the capacity of the quantum state of the field to accumulate useful work. By contrast, the energy gain of the field is shown to be insensitive to its quantum state. Analogies and differences with masers are explored.

Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education Beryllium Testing Vendor Populations When former employees at 25 closed U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) beryllium vendor companies needed an entity to provide medical screening and tests related to their beryllium exposure, the agency chose the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) to manage the program. ORISE administers a brief health questionnaire and a blood test known as the beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT) to determine if a worker has been sensitized to the light metal or if he or she needs to be evaluated further for chronic beryllium disease (CBD). If a worker has at least one abnormal BeLPT, he or she is referred for further evaluation through the Energy Employees Occupational Illness

Defunct Beryllium Vendor Screening Program Defunct Beryllium Vendor Screening Program Former Worker Medical Screening Program (FWP) In February 2005, DOE expanded the beryllium screening program to include former employees of defunct DOE beryllium vendors who were employed with these companies while they performed work for DOE. This change was made to ensure that workers who no longer have an employer to turn to for beryllium disease testing could receive this important screening. DOE will offer these individuals a blood test at no cost to check for beryllium sensitization. DOE will pay for both the costs of drawing the blood and the analysis of the blood. If a screened individual receives an abnormal test for beryllium sensitization, they can receive medical monitoring for beryllium disease through DOL's EEOICP.

Thyroid nodularity and cancer among Chernobyl cleanup workers from Estonia  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Thyroid examinations, including palpation, ultrasound and, selectively, fine-needle aspiration biopsy, were conducted on nearly 2,000 Chernobyl cleanup workers from Estonia to evaluate the occurrence of thyroid cancer and nodular thyroid disease among men with protracted exposure to ionizing radiation. The examinations were conducted in four cities in Estonia during March-April 1995, 9 years after the reactor accident. The study population was selected from a predefined cohort of 4,833 cleanup workers from Estonia under surveillance for cancer incidence. These men had been sent to Chernobyl between 1986 and 1991 to entomb the damaged reactor, remove radioactive debris and perform related cleanup activities. A total of 2,997 men were invited for thyroid screening and 1,984 (66%) were examined. Estimates of radiation dose from external sources were obtained from military or other institutional records, and details about service dates and types of work performed while at Chernobyl were obtained from a self-administered questionnaire. Blood samples were collected for assay of chromosomal translocations in circulating lymphocytes and loss of expression of the glycophorin A (GPA) gene in erythrocytes. The primary outcome measure was the presence or absence of thyroid nodules as determined by the ultrasound examination. Of the screened workers, 1,247 (63%) were sent to Chernobyl in 1986, including 603 (30%) sent in April or May, soon after the accident. Workers served at Chernobyl for an average of 3 months. The average age was 32 years at the time of arrival at Chernobyl and 40 years at the time of thyroid examination. The mean documented radiation dose from external sources was 10.8 cGy. Biological indicators of exposure showed low correlations with documented dose, but did not indicate that the mean dose for the population was higher than the average documented dose. 47 refs., 1 fig., 9 tabs.

Gain switching and oscillations in an ionic pulsed xenon laser  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The output of a visible ionic pulsed xenon laser excited with a FWHM nearly flat current pulse was analysed through time-resolved spectroscopy. It was observed that near threshold, the output consisted of a multipulse pattern within the duration of the current pulse. Beside this, a study of the spontaneous emission of the laser lines was carried out as a function of discharge current. This work reports the main characteristics of this kind of output and proposes a simplified model based on excitation - de-excitation processes by electron impact and gain modulation that reproduces the main experimental results.

Gain and efficiency of a short traveling wave heat engine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Gain and efficiency equations are derived for a traveling wave heat engine which has a regenerator that is SHORT compared to an acoustic wavelength. A traveling wave heat engine is a modified Stirling engine in which acoustical waves replace the usual pistons and energy is transformed from thermal to acoustical forms and vice?versa depending on the wave direction. A previous paper examined the energy transformation process for isothermal wave propagation in an infinite regenerator having a temperature gradient [P. H. Ceperley J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 7 2 1688–1694 (1982)]. Similar to that paper the present paper assumes: small amplitude waves nonturbulent flow a constant heat exchange coefficient and no regenerator end effects. In contrast the present paper assumes that the wave impedance is NOT determined by the regenerators’s properties but is instead set by the acoustical circuit exterior to the regenerator. In this paper the normalized power gain and efficiency are calculated and graphed as functions of dimensionless variables. For acoustical impedances of freely propagating waves and a Prandtl number of 0.7 the efficiency is limited to 10% of Carnot efficiency due to viscous losses in the regenerator. Higher efficiencies are possible with higher impedances e.g. if the impedance is multiplied by 10 79% of Carnot efficiencies are possible. Methods of achieving such impedances are discussed. Traveling waveheat pumps are similarly modeled and have comparable potential efficiencies.

Gain and efficiency of a short traveling wave heat engine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Gain and efficiency equations are derived and evaluated for a traveling wave heat engine having a regenerator of short length compared with an acoustic wavelength. A traveling wave heat engine is a modified Stirling engine in which acoustic waves replace the usual pistons and energy is transferred between thermal and acoustic forms depending on the wave direction [P. H. Ceperley J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 66 1508–1513 (1979)]. This paper is similar to another paper on gain and efficiency [P. H. Ceperley J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 72 1688–1694 (1982)] except that the present paper assumes that the wave impedance is not determined by the regenerator's properties but instead by the acoustic circuit exterior to the regenerator. For acoustic impedance of freely propagating traveling waves in air the efficiency is limited to 11% of Carnot efficiency due to visious heating in the regenerator. This can be greatly increased by going to higher impedances; e.g. 79% is possible at ten times greater impedance.

Corpuscular theory of intensity noise with gain compression  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

When light from a laser is fully absorbed by an ideal detector, the detected current exhibits a fluctuation called here ‘‘photonic noise.’’ The spectral density of Iintensity noiseR, defined as the difference of the photonic-noise spectral density and a term corresponding to the shot-noise level, is negative for sub-Poissonian statistics. The usefulness of the relative-intensity-noise concept is that it is independent of any linear attenuation. A simple circuit theory of intensity noise based only on energy conservation and the Nyquist formula (zero-point fluctuation) leads to expressions of the spectral densities that agree with quantum theory even for sub-Poissonian photon statistics. When the optical gain and loss are frequency independent, the circuit theory reduces to a corpuscular theory that keeps track of the time rates of change of electron and photon numbers treated as continuous variables. Consideration is given to laser diodes in which the rate of electron-photon conversion depends nonlinearly on both the carrier and photon densities. The cross-spectral density between electrical-voltage and relative photonic fluctuations is independent of internal or external optical losses. Standard rate equations are inaccurate in the case of gain compression. Very general yet simple formulas for intensity noise are applied to room-temperature GaAs laser diodes, using recently calculated optical parameters.

Gulf Coast refiners gain access to more California crudes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Refiners east of the Rockies, particularly Gulf Coast refiners, have gained access to easter and central California crudes with the opening of Celeron Corp.'s All American Pipeline (AAPL). Currently, AAPL is carrying a blend of California crudes with properties similar to Alaskan North Slope (ANS). Although the blend is moderate gravity and sulfur content, it is comprised of crudes from several fields in California that display wide variations in quality. Future deliveries east from California will be from regions with even more extremes of quality. To familiarize refiners with the crudes that will become available, some of the properties of these California crudes are discussed, along with some of the problems refiners may encounter in processing these materials.

Progress on achieving the ICF conditions needed for high gain  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Progress during the past two years has moved us much closer to demonstrating the scientific and technological requirements for high gain ICF in the laboratory. This progress has been made possible by operating at the third harmonic of 1..mu..m light which dramatically reduces concern about hot electrons and by advances in diagnostics such as 100 ps x-ray framing cameras which greatly increase the data available from each experiment. Making use of many of these new capabilities, major improvements in confinement conditions have been achieved for ICF implosions. In particular, in an optimized hohlraum on Nova, radiation driven implosions with convergence ratio in excess of 30 (volume compression /approximately/3 /times/ 10/sup 4/) have performed essentially as predicted by spherical implosion calculations. This paper presents these results as well as examples of advances in several other areas and discusses the implications for the future of ICF with lasers and heavy ion beam drivers. 8 refs., 10 figs.

Edge cladding gain media according to IL-11317  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In this patent application we wish to claim the following approach to ameliorating spontaneous amplified emission (ASE) that occurs in a laser amplifier slab. There are two important elements of our approach. We wish to claim the application of both together but not either one alone. (1) The first element of the invention is to roughen the edge surfaces of the amplifier slab. A rough surface with random planar features larger than the wavelength of light will reflect and refract incident light rays at angles different than the median plane of the surface. The rough surface can then be characterized by two parameters. First there is a distribution of heights about the zero mean plane of the surface. If normal this distribution is characterized by a standard deviation. The second parameter is the correlation distance that describes how close together on average are the peaks and valleys. The ratio of these two numbers determines the spread of light reflected off the surface of the edge of the slab. (2) The second element in our invention is to bond the roughened edges of the gain medium to an ASE absorbing media using a suitable bonding agent. In order for the ASE to leave the gain medium crystal there must be minimal reflection and maximum transmission at the interface. This requires having a near match of the index of refraction of the bonding medium and the amplifier slab material at the wavelength of the ASE. Further if the index of refraction of the bonding agent is less than that of the amplifier there will be some total internal reflection even if the surface is roughened. The index of refraction of GGG is {approx} 1.92 and that of YAG is {approx} 1.84. There are no suitable bonding agents with indices of refraction this high.

Observation of gain in a free-electron laser master oscillator-power amplifier  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report the first operation of a master oscillator-power amplifier in which both devices are free-electron lasers. Gain optimization in the power amplifier was studied. A 35-A electron beam produced up to 60% gain at 3 {mu}m. The gain spectrum was obtained by gap tuning the power amplifier wiggler and evidence was found for violation of the Madey theorem due to high gain effects.

Room temperature broadband terahertz gains in graphene heterostructures based on inter-layer radiative transitions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We exploit inter-layer radiative transitions to provide gains to amplify terahertz waves in graphene heterostructures. This is achieved by properly doping graphene sheets and aligning their energy bands so that the processes of stimulated emissions can overwhelm absorptions. We derive an expression for the gain estimation and show the gain is insensitive to temperature variation. Moreover, the gain is broadband and can be strong enough to compensate the free carrier loss, indicating graphene based room temperature terahertz lasers are feasible.

Radiation worker health study: Scoping phase: Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this project was to develop a scope of work for an epidemiologic study of the health of workers at nuclear utilities. We propose a study of cancer mortality among electric utility personnel assigned to nuclear generating stations. The primary goal of the study is to provide information to assist in maintaining a healthy work environment in electric utilities; such information would also help to resolve some uncertainties about the effects of low-level ionizing radiation by providing direct observation of human beings exposed at low doses and dose rates. Workers at each nuclear generating station would be identified from company records, their dose histories would be collected, and their vital status would be ascertained as well as cause of death, if deceased. This study would be historical in that past records would be used and prospective in that employees would continue to be followed in future years. Our estimates indicate that a study population composed of employees and contractors at all commercial nuclear generating stations would total approximately 2,000,000 person-years of observation and would be adequate to detect (or exclude) a 50 percent increase in leukemia with reasonable statistical power. 44 refs., 4 figs., 3 tabs.

Gratings for Increasing Solid-State Laser Gain and Efficiency  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We introduce new concepts for increasing the efficiency of solid state lasers by using gratings deposited on laser slabs or disks. The gratings improve efficiency in two ways: (1) by coupling out of the slab deleterious amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) and (2) by increasing the absorption efficiency of pump light. The gratings also serve as antireflective coatings for the extracting laser beam. To evaluate the potential for such coatings to improve laser performance, we calculated optical properties of a 2500 groove/mm, tantala-silica grating on a 1cm x 4cm x 8cm titanium-doped sapphire slab and performed ray-trace calculations for ASE and pump light. Our calculations show substantial improvements in efficiency due to grating ASE-coupling properties. For example, the gratings reduce pump energy required to produce a 0.6/cm gain coefficient by 9%, 20% and 35% for pump pulse durations of 0.5 {micro}s, 1{micro}s and 3{micro}s, respectively. Gratings also increase 532-nm pump-light absorption efficiency, particularly when the product slab overall absorption is small. For example, when the single-pass absorption is 1 neper, absorption efficiency increases from 66%, without gratings, to 86%, when gratings are used.

GAiN: Distributed Array Computation with Python  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Scientific computing makes use of very large, multidimensional numerical arrays - typically, gigabytes to terabytes in size - much larger than can fit on even the largest single compute node. Such arrays must be distributed across a "cluster" of nodes. Global Arrays is a cluster-based software system from Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that enables an efficient, portable, and parallel shared-memory programming interface to manipulate these arrays. Written in and for the C and FORTRAN programming languages, it takes advantage of high-performance cluster interconnections to allow any node in the cluster to access data on any other node very rapidly. The "numpy" module is the de facto standard for numerical calculation in the Python programming language, a language whose use is growing rapidly in the scientific and engineering communities. numpy provides a powerful N-dimensional array class as well as other scientific computing capabilities. However, like the majority of the core Python modules, numpy is inherently serial. Our system, GAiN (Global Arrays in NumPy), is a parallel extension to Python that accesses Global Arrays through numpy. This allows parallel processing and/or larger problem sizes to be harnessed almost transparently within new or existing numpy programs.

Mortality among female workers at a thorium-processing plant  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The mortality patterns among a cohort of 677 female workers at a thorium-processing plant are reported for the period from 1940 to 1982. Of the 677 women, 165 were reported dead; 459 were still alive; and 53 (7.8%) were lost to follow-up. The standardized mortality ratios from all causes (0.74), all cancers (0.53), and circulatory diseases (0.66) were significantly below those for the general US population. In this cohort, 5 deaths due to lung cancer and 1 death from leukemia were observed, with 4.53 and 1.69 deaths expected, respectively. No deaths from cancer of the liver, pancreas, or bone were observed. Poisson regression analysis was used for an internal comparison within the cohort. The results of the Poisson regression analysis showed no significant effect on mortality rates of all causes and cancers from the study factors, including job classification, duration of employment, and time since first employment.

Low Prevalence of Chronic Beryllium Disease among Workers at a Nuclear Weapons Research and Development Facility  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To study the prevalence of beryllium sensitization (BeS) and chronic beryllium disease (CBD) in a cohort of workers from a nuclear weapons research and development facility. We evaluated 50 workers with BeS with medical and occupational histories, physical examination, chest imaging with HRCT (N=49), and pulmonary function testing. Forty of these workers also underwent bronchoscopy for bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and transbronchial biopsies. The mean duration of employment at the facility was 18 yrs and the mean latency (from first possible exposure) to time of evaluation was 32 yrs. Five of the workers had CBD at the time of evaluation (based on histology or HRCT); three others had evidence of probable CBD. These workers with BeS, characterized by a long duration of potential Be exposure and a long latency, had a low prevalence of CBD.

Kidney cancer and hydrocarbon exposures among petroleum refinery workers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To evaluate the hypothesis of increased kidney cancer risk after exposure to hydrocarbons, especially those present in gasoline, we conducted a case-control study in a cohort of approximately 100,000 male refinery workers from five petroleum companies. A review of 18,323 death certificates identified 102 kidney cancer cases, to each of whom four controls were matched by refinery location and decade of birth. Work histories, containing an average of 15.7 job assignments per subject, were found for 98% of the cases and 94% of the controls. Tb each job, industrial hygienists assigned semiquantitative ratings for the intensity and frequency of exposures to three hydrocarbon categories: nonaromatic liquid gasoline distillates, aromatic hydrocarbons, and the more volatile hydrocarbons. Ratings of {open_quotes}present{close_quotes} or {open_quotes}absent{close_quotes} were assigned for seven additional exposures: higher boiling hydrocarbons, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, asbestos, chlorinated solvents, ionizing radiation, and lead. Each exposure had either no association or a weak association with kidney cancer. For the hydrocarbon category of principal a priori interest, the nonaromatic liquid gasoline distillates, the estimated relative risk (RR) for any exposure above refinery background was 1.0 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.5-1.9). Analyses of cumulative exposures and of exposures in varying time periods before kidney cancer occurrence also produced null or near-null results. In an analysis of the longest job held by each subject (average duration 9.2 years or 40% of the refiner&y work history), three groups appeared to be at increased risk: laborers (RR = 1.9,95% CI 1.0-3.9); workers in receipt, storage, and movements (RR = 2.5,95% CI 0.9-6.6); and unit cleaners (RR = 2.3, 95% CI 0.5-9.9). 53 refs., 7 tabs.

Seafood safety: Knowledge, attitudes, self-reported practices and risk perceptions of seafood workers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The aims of this study were to assess the knowledge, attitudes and self-reported practices regarding seafood safety and the risk perception of seafood-borne diseases among seafood workers and to study the relationships among these variables. This study was cross-sectional, and the data collection was conducted using questionnaires administered through face-to-face interviews with 193 seafood workers in Brazil. Of these workers, 49.8% handled fish on fishery boats (Fishery Workers, FWs) and 50.2% were seafood handlers in two seafood warehouses (Seafood Warehouse Workers, SWWs). A minority of the seafood workers (33.7%) had participated in at least one food-safety training session. The knowledge and attitudes scores of the \\{SWWs\\} were higher than the scores of the FWs. However, no difference was observed between the self-reported practice scores of the \\{SWWs\\} and FWs. The mean level of risk perception score of the \\{SWWs\\} was higher than that of the FWs; nevertheless, both groups were classified as having an average risk perception of seafood-borne diseases. The risk perception score was correlated with the knowledge and attitude scores in both groups. Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the attitude score and the age of the worker were related to the self-reported practice scores of both groups. These results showed the need for immediate actions to improve the knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding food safety and handling to ensure the production of seafood that is safe for consumption.

Shock Ignition: A New Approach to High Gain Inertial Confinement Fusion on the National Ignition Facility  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Shock ignition, an alternative concept for igniting thermonuclear fuel, is explored as a new approach to high gain, inertial confinement fusion targets for the National Ignition Facility (NIF). Results indicate thermonuclear yields of ?120–250??MJ may be possible with laser drive energies of 1–1.6 MJ, while gains of ?50 may still be achievable at only ?0.2??MJ drive energy. The scaling of NIF energy gain with laser energy is found to be G?126E??(MJ)0.510. This offers the potential for high-gain targets that may lead to smaller, more economic fusion power reactors and a cheaper fusion energy development path.

A near infrared organic photodiode with gain at low bias voltage  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We demonstrate an organic photodiode with near infrared optical response out to about 1100 run with a gain of {approx}10 at 1000 run under 5V reverse bias. The diodes employ a soluble naphthalocyanine with a peak absorption coefficient of {approx}10{sup 5} cm{sup -1} at 1000 nm. In contrast to most organic photodiodes, no exciton dissociating material is used. At zero bias, the diodes are inefficient with an external quantum efficiency of {approx} 10{sup -2}. In reverse bias, large gain occurs and is linear with bias voltage above 4V. The observed gain is consistent with a photoconductive gain mechanism.

Preventing Absenteeism and Promoting Resilience Among Health Care Workers In Biological Emergencies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The ability to ensure adequate numbers of medical staff represents a crucial part of the medical response to any disaster. However, healthcare worker absenteeism during disasters, especially in the event of an attack of biological terrorism or an epidemic such as pandemic influenza, is a serious concern. Though a significant rate of absenteeism is often included as a baseline assumption in emergency planning, published reports on strategies to minimize absenteeism are comparatively few. This report documents interviews with managers and emergency response planners at hospitals and public health agencies and reviews existing survey data on healthcare worker absenteeism and studies of disasters to glean lessons about the needs of healthcare workers during those disasters. Based on this research, expected rates of absenteeism and individual determinants of absenteeism are presented along with recommendations of steps that hospitals, emergency medical services departments, public health organizations, and government agencies can take to meet the needs of healthcare workers and minimize absenteeism during a biological event.

Status and prospects of internal dosimetry for the Mayak nuclear workers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Research results on internal dosimetry for workers at the radiochemical and chemical-metallurgical facilities of Mayak Production Association are summarised here. The leading role of plutonium in forming of internal doses in these workers is demonstrated. Biophysical, methodical and analytical principles currently used in monitoring of internal exposure due to incorporated plutonium are described. Capabilities of the techniques utilised are analysed. It is demonstrated that alpha radiometry does not meet the monitoring requirements related to sensitivity in some cases. Problems arising in the process of examination of nuclear workers are analysed. It is shown that the primary directions in the development of the internal dosimetry system imply improvement of plutonium metabolic models (including respiratory tract and extrapulmonary models), conversion to a more sensitive instrumental base when measuring plutonium content in biosubstrates, development of methods for dose estimation in terms of plutonium intake via wounds, and improvement of the worker's exposure scenario technique.

Radiation cooling and gain calculation for C VI 182 A line in C/Se plasma  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A model is developed which is capable of describing the evolution of gain resulting from both rapid radiative and expansion cooling of a recombining, freely expanding plasma. It is demonstrated for the particular case of a carbon/selenium plasma that the cooling rate which leads to optimal gain can be achieved by adjusting the admixture of an efficiently radiating material (selenium) in the gain medium (carbon). Comparison is made to a recent observation of gain in a recent NRL/Rochester experiment with carbon/selenium plasma for the n = 3 ..-->.. 2 transition in C VI occurring at 182 A. The predicted maximum gain is approx.10 cm/sup -1/, as compared to observation of 2 to 3 cm/sup -1/.

The Estonian study of Chernobyl cleanup workers: I. Design and questionnaire data  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Nearly 2% of the male population of Estonia aged 20-39 years were sent to Chernobyl to assist in the cleanup activities after the reactor accident. A cohort of 4,833 cleanup workers was assembled based on multiple and independent sources of information. Information obtained from 3,704 responses to a detailed questionnaire indicated that 63% of the workers were sent to Chernobyl in 1986; 54% were of Estonian and 35% of Russian ethnicity; 72% were married, and 1,164 of their 5,392 children were conceived after the Chernobyl disaster. The workers were less educated than their counterparts than their counterparts in the general population of Estonia, and only 8.5% had attended university. Based on doses entered in workers records, the mean dose was 11 cGy, with only 1.4% over 25 cGy. Nearly 85% of the workers were sent as part of military training activities, and more than half spent in excess of 3 months in the Chernobyl area. Thirty-six percent of the workers reported having worked within the immediate vicinity of the accident site; 11.5% worked on the roofs near the damaged reactor, clearing the highly radioactive debris. The most commonly performed task was the removal and burial of topsoil (55% of the workers). Potassium iodide was given to over 18% of the men. The study design also incorporates biological indicators of exposure based on the glycophorin A mutational assay of red blood cells and chromosome translocation analyses of lymphocytes; record linkage with national cancer registry and mortality registry files to determine cancer incidence and cause-specific mortality; thyroid screening examinations with ultrasound and fine-needle biopsy; and cryopreserved white blood cells and plasma for future molecular studies. Comprehensive studies of Chernobyl cleanup workers have potential to provide a new information about cancer risks due to protracted exposures to ionizing radiation. 21 refs., 1 fig., 11 tabs.

The Concentration Of Tritium In Urine And Internal Radiation Dose Estimation Of PTNBR Radiation Workers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The operation of Triga 2000 reactor in Nuclear Technology Center for Materials and Radiometry (PTNBR BATAN) normally produce tritium radionuclide which is the activation product of deuterium atom in reactor primary cooling water. According to previous monitoring, tritium was detected with the concentration of 8.236{+-}0.677 kBq/L and 1.704{+-}0.046 Bq/L in the primary cooling water and in reactor hall air, respectively. The tritium in reactor hall air chronically can be inhaled by the workers. In this research, tritium content in radiation workers' urine was determined to estimate the internal radiation doses received by the workers. About 50-100 mL of urine samples were collected from 48 PTNBR workers that is classified as 24 radiation workers and 24 administration staffs as a control. Urine samples of 25 mL were then prepared by active charcoal and KMnO{sub 4} addition and followed with complete distillation. The 2 mL of distillate was added with 13 mL scintillator, shaked vigorously and remained in cool and dark condition for about 24 hours. The tritium in the samples was then measured using liquid scintillation counter (LSC) for 1 hour. From the measurement results it was obtained that the tritium concentration in the urine of radiation workers were in the range of not detected and 5.191 Bq/mL, whereas in the administration staffs the concentration were between not detected and 4.607 Bq/mL. Internally radiation doses were calculated using the tritium concentration data, and it was found the averages about 0.602 {mu}Sv/year and 0.532 {mu}Sv/year for radiation workers and administration staffs, respectively. The doses received by the workers were lower than that of the permissible doses from tritium, i.e. 40 {mu}Sv/year.

Plasmonic amplification and suppression in nanowaveguide coupled to gain-assisted high-quality plasmon resonances  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We theoretically study transmission in nanowaveguide coupled to high-quality plasmon resonances for which the metal loss is overcompensated by gain. The on-resonance transmission can vary widely from lower than --20dB to higher than 20dB for a range of gain coefficient. A reversible transition between the high-quality amplification and the suppression can be induced by a quite small change of gain coefficient for a moderately increased distance between the waveguide and the resonator. It is expected that in practice a small change of gain coefficient can be made by flexibly controlling pumping rate or utilizing nonlinear gain. Additionally, based on the frequency-dependant model for gain-transition susceptibility, it is shown that the wide variation of the on-resonance transmission can also be observed for defferent detuning of the gain-transition line-center. Such a widely controllable on-resonance transmission is promising for applications such as well-controlled lumped amplification of surface plasmon-pola...

Calibration of photomultipliers gain used in the J-PET detector  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Photomultipliers are commonly used in commercial PET scanner as devices which convert light produced in scintillator by gamma quanta from positron-electron annihilation into electrical signal. For proper analysis of obtained electrical signal, a photomultiplier gain curve must be known, since gain can be significantly different even between photomultipliers of the same model. In this article we describe single photoelectron method used for photomultipliers calibration applied for J-PET scanner, a novel PET detector being developed at the Jagiellonian University. Description of calibration method, an example of calibration curve and gain of few R4998 Hamamatsu photomultipliers are presented.

Negative differential gain in quantum dot systems: Interplay of structural properties and many-body effects  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The saturation behaviour of optical gain with increasing excitation density is an important factor for laser device performance. For active materials based on self-organized InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots, we study the interplay between structural properties of the quantum dots and many-body effects of excited carriers in the optical properties via a combination of tight-binding and quantum-kinetic calculations. We identify regimes where either phase-space filling or excitation-induced dephasing dominates the saturation behavior of the optical gain. The latter can lead to the emergence of a negative differential material gain.
