  • Synchrotron radiation induced photodesorption in particle accelerators may lead to pressure rise and to beam-gas scattering losses, finally affecting the beam lifetime [1]. We discuss the beam tube vacuum in the low field Stage 1 and Stage 2 Very Large Hadron Collider VLHC. Since VLHC Stage 1 has a room temperature beam tube, a non-evaporable getter (NEG St101 strip) pumping system located inside a pumping antechamber, supplemented by lumped ion pumps for pumping methane is considered. In Stage 2, the {approx}100 K beam screen, or liner, illuminated by the synchrotron radiation, is inserted into the magnet cold bore. Cryo-pumping ismore » provided by the cold bore kept at 4.2 K, through slots covering the beam screen surface. Possible beam conditioning scenarios are presented for reaching design intensity, both for Stage 1 and 2. The most important results are summarized in this paper.« less
  • The Advanced Coal Liquefaction R and D Facility at Wilsonville, Alabama, has been in operation for over 12 years. It is the largest direct coal liquefaction pilot plant still in operation in the United States. Process investigations have evolved from the original study of the Solvent Refined Coal Process for making a clean solid fuel to the recent investigation of two-stage liquefaction processes for making clean distillate fuels. This paper presents results from the current study of various processing schemes designed to reduce the cost of fuels produced by two-stage liquefaction plants.
  • Novel two-stage Se vapor selenization of magnetron sputtered metallic precursors and Ga incorporation using single Cu-Ga(22 at.%) alloy target have been developed for preparation of well-adherent, large, compact, well-faceted polyhedral grain CuIn{sub 1{minus}x}Ga{sub x}Se{sub 2} thin films having optimum composition Cu:In:Ga:Se of 22.95:25.03:1.40:50.63. Cu-In-Ga precursor homogenization by in situ heat-treatment at {approximately}90 C for 10 minutes prior to first selenization, selenization temperature of 550--560 C, and Se vapor incidence rate of 50 {angstrom}/sec resulted in improved morphology of completed CuIn{sub 1{minus}x}Ga{sub x}Se{sub 2} thin films, and solar cells with open circuit voltage of 377 mV, short circuit current density ofmore » 34.8 mA, fill factor FF of 62.5%, active area efficiency of 8.2% (total area efficiency 5.8% limited by FF 49.1%) and fairly constant spectral response over the spectral range.« less
