  • On Sept. 10, 1996, LLNL hosted a workshop aimed at answering the question: Is it possible to carry out transmission electron microscopy (TEM) on plutonium metal in an electron microscope located outside the LLNL plutonium facility. The workshop focused on evaluation of a proposed plan for Pu microscopy both from a technical and environment, health, and safety point of view. After review and modification of the plan, workshop participants unanimously concluded that: (1) the technical plan is sound, (2) this technical plan, including a proposal for a new TEM, provides significant improvements and unique capabilities compared with the effort atmore » LANL and is therefore complementary, (3) there is no significant environment, health, and safety obstacle to this plan.« less
  • The increasing interest in the use of color output for data presentation has affected the NDT divisions at SNLA. In many cases it has become an integral part of the work done. This paper reviews the various devices currently in use within our divisions and gives a representative view of what we are doing with them. A list of the devices available is given as an overview. The following section gives a brief description of the device, with examples of our usage of the devices and our opinions related to them.
  • The use of polymers as structural materials, adhesives, and coatings for parabolic trough reflectors is discussed. Four design concepts for producing panel reflectors are described relative to the role polymers play in them. (LEW)
  • Narration and viewgraphs are given for a presentation that overviews Sandia Laboratories with an emphasis on Sandia's involvement in manufacturing technology. The primary mission involves responsibility for nuclear weapon engineering, but other missions of national importance are included. Equipment used in carrying out the manufacturing part of the mission are illustrated. (LEW)
  • The text of a speech and accompanying viewgraphs are given which review Sandia Laboratories' basic assignments in the US DOE weapons program, discuss some of the highlights of changes in the Sandia organization, and touch on Sandia's interest in manufacturing technology both as an incidental factor in accomplishing hardware goals and in areas where manufacturing technology is a primary organizational interest.
