  • The energy dependences of the total cross sections for the excitation and polarization of the emission of the resonance lines in collisions of Ca/sup +/, Sr/sup +/, and Ba/sup +/ ions with inert-gas atoms. It is established that the radiation is strongly polarized in the region of the threshold excitation energies. A new type of interference is observed, causing the experimentally observed oscillations of the polarization functions. A model is proposed for the explanation of the aggregate of the experimental data. Quantitative estimates are obtained of the frequency and amplitude of the oscillations; these estimates agree well with the experimentalmore » values.« less
  • A number of methods and products, both hardware and software, to allow data exchange between Apple Macintosh computers and MS-DOS based systems. These included serial null modem connections, MS-DOS hardware and/or software emulation, MS-DOS disk-reading hardware and networking.
  • The Mobil Oil Corp. pollution response team initiated firefighting, towing away from land in different directions, and preparation for spraying the developing oil slick with dispersant after collision of the Aegean Captain with the Atlantic Express off the coast of Trinidad in July 1979. The oil slick dispersed naturally through wind, wave action, and sunshine.
  • Molecular tribology, or nanotribology, provides an atomic-scale understanding of the fundamental processes that take place when surfaces in relative motion interact. Researchers at LLNL and elsewhere need to know more about these processes to design and build many ultra-precise components, including optical devices, very smooth surfaces, and computer chips. A type of realistic computer modeling developed at LLNL, called molecular dynamics modeling is used to study what happens when different materials, such as metals and glass, undergo cutting, grinding, cracking, and other processes associated with fabrication. It has been found, for example, that both metals and ceramics behave in amore » ductile manner when machining is simulated on the nanometer length scale. However, the mechanisms underlying deformation are quite different in the two types of materials. Metals, such as copper, remain crystalline and deform through dislocation mechanisms. In contrast, covalent materials, such as silicon, transform into an amorphous state, which flows. Such information is being applied to develop more practical engineering guidelines for researchers at LLNL and in the industrial community.« less
