  • A method for analyzing the asymptotic behavior of the sum of randomly varying harmonic currents produced by static power converters is described. It has been shown by virtue of the central limit theorem that as the number of harmonic sources is large enough, the vectorial sum of random harmonic vectors approaches a bivariate normal distribution. However, methods of determining its parameters for realistic harmonic-generating loads need to be developed. This paper deals with the case of ac/dc static power converters. With the operating condition of each converter being known, the parameters of the bivariate normal distribution can be effectively determined.more » Monte-Carlo simulation is performed to justify the proposed method.« less
  • ABS>The relaxation time of Yb³⁺ in iron garnet in strong exchange fields is computed using extensions of previous methods for rare-earth ions in magnetic fields in dielectric salts (R. Ohrbach, Proc. Roy. Soc. (London) A264, and exchange-field matrices must be diagonalized simultaneously. Two- phonon processes begin to contribute to the YbIG relaxation time at liquid-air temperatures; the resonance relaxation process becomes dominant. The highfrequency exchange mode (C. Kittel, Phys. Rev., 115: 1587 (1959)) provides a check of these methods. (L.N.N.)
  • Static magnetic fields (MF) having inductions of 0.85 to 1.1 T were found to have an effect on the base conductance and electric breakdown of bilayer lipid membranes (BLM) formed from egg lecithin in decane. In membranes with a low specific resistance (R /SUB SP/ < 10/sup 7/ ..cap omega.. X cm/sup 2/ and membranes in a state of ''stress,'' MF parallel to the BLM plane will increase the conductance, current fluctuations, and probability of rupture. Magnetic fields perpendicular to the membranes have no effect on their conductance. In electric breakdown, MF parallel to the membranes prolong the stage ofmore » steady-state currents and shorten that of the prebreakdown fluctuations, while MF perpendicular to the membranes shorten the stage of steady-state currents and have no effect on that of the prebreakdown fluctuations. These effects appear to be due to the influence of MF on the formation probability and diameter of ''hydrophilic'' pores.« less
  • The international ITER tokamak has the objective of demonstrating the scientific feasibility of magnetic confinement fusion as a source of energy. A concern towards the achievement of this goal is represented by major disruptions: complete losses of confinement often initiated by a non-rotating ('locked') magnetic island created by magnetic reconnection. During disruptions, energy and particles accumulated in the plasma volume over many seconds are lost in a few milliseconds and released on the plasma-facing materials. In addition, multi-MA level currents flowing in the tokamak plasma for its sustainment and confinement are lost, also in milliseconds, thus terminating the plasma dischargemore » and causing electromagnetic stresses that, if unmitigated, could lead to excessive device wear. Moreover it is shown that magnetic perturbations can be used to avoid disruptions by "guiding" the magnetic island to lock in a position where it is accessible to millimetre wave beams that fully stabilize it.« less
  • We study the field effects on the Coulomb excitation spectrum of Bernal bilayer graphene by using the tight-binding model and the random-phase approximation. The electric field opens the band gap and creates the saddle points, the latter brings about a prominent interband plasmon. On the other hand, the magnetic field induces the dispersionless Landau levels (LLs) that causes the inter-LL plasmons. The two kinds of field-induced plasmon modes can be further tuned by the magnitude of momentum transfer and the field strength. The predicted results may be further validated by the inelastic light-scattering or high-resolution electron-energy-loss spectroscopy (HREELLS)
