  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is in the process of constructing the National Ignition Facility, a half million square foot facility which will house a 192 beam laser system capable of generating the 2 million joules of ultraviolet light energy necessary to achieve fusion ignition with inertial targets by 2004. More than 7,000 meter class optics will need to be manufactured by LLNL`s industrial partners to construct the laser system. The components will be manufactured starting in 1998 and will be finished by 2003. In 1994 it became clear through a series of funded cost studies that, in order to fabricatemore » such an unprecedented number of large precision optics in so short a time for the lowest possible cost, new technologies would need to be developed and new factories constructed based on those technologies. At that time, LLNL embarked on an ambitious optics finishing technology development program costing more than $6M over 3 years to develop these technologies, working with three suppliers of large precision optics. While each development program centered upon the specialties and often proprietary technologies already existing in the suppliers facility, many of the technologies required for manufacturing large precision optics at the lowest cost possible are common to two and in some cases all three efforts. Since many of the developments achieved during this program stemmed from intellectual property and trade secrets at the vendors, the program cannot be described completely in a public forum. Nevertheless, many non-proprietary advances were made during this program which the vendors are willing to share with the greater community. This presentation will describe the manufacturing process in a general sense which is used by all three of the companies under contract; Zygo Corporation, Tinsley Laboratories, and Eastman Kodak. In each of the principle process steps of shaping, grinding, polishing, figuring, and metrology, development highlights will be discussed.« less
  • Fast and quantitative analysis of cellular activity, signaling and responses to external stimuli is a crucial capability and it has been the goal of several projects focusing on patch clamp measurements. To provide the maximum functionality and measurement options, we have developed a patch clamp array device that incorporates on-chip electronics, mechanical, optical and microfluidic coupling as well as cell localization through fluid flow. The preliminary design, which integrated microfluidics, electrodes and optical access, was fabricated and tested. In addition, new designs which further combine mechanical actuation, on-chip electronics and various electrode materials with the previous designs are currently beingmore » fabricated.« less
  • This paper will discuss the development of fiber optic sensors for space and terrestrial-based nuclear reactors and other harsh-environment applications. The ability of fiber optic sensors to survive in very high-radiation and high-temperature environments will be presented. These capabilities, coupled with other intrinsic advantages, make fiber optic sensors a promising solution for extremely harsh-environment applications where data integrity is paramount. Luna Innovations is developing a high temperature sensor suite based on novel metal oxide transducers and patented fiber optic sensor technology. This suite includes pressure, temperature, acceleration, and skin friction sensors. High-radiation survivability testing has been conducted on several sensormore » types which showed good survivability up to a fast neutron (>1 MeV) fluence of 2x10{sup 19} cm{sup -2} and 87 GRad, gamma radiation. Luna has demonstrated the operation of ceramic fiber optic pressure sensors at up to 800 deg. C. By applying advanced materials and packaging technologies, designs that will support pressure measurements up to 1400 deg. C have been produced. Fiber optic temperature sensors have been demonstrated up to 1400 deg. C. A ceramic accelerometer has also been demonstrated to operate up to 850 deg. C. A skin friction sensor is in the early stages of development that is expected to reach 870 deg. C. The results of these experiments will be summarized. The high temperature, radiation-hardened sensor suite will provide previously unobtainable measurements in advanced spacecraft propulsion systems, as well as in high-temperature industrial applications, and can be adapted for long-term use in emerging nuclear reactor designs.
