  • NBS has been engaged in a wide-ranging program in Neutron Resonance Radiography utilizing both one- and two-dimensional position-sensitive neutron detectors. The ability to perform a position-sensitive assay of up to 16 isotopes in a complex matrix has been demonstrated for a wide variety of sample types, including those with high gamma activity. A major part of the program has been the development and application of the microchannel-plate-based position-sensitive neutron detector. This detector system has high resolution and sensitivity, together with adequate speed of response to be used with neutron time-of-flight techniques. This system has demonstrated the ability to simultaneously imagemore » three isotopes in a sample with no interference.« less
  • We are converting a quad of NIF beamlines into eight, short-pulse (1-50 ps), petawatt-class beams for advanced radiography and fast ignition experiments. This paper describes progress toward completing this project.
  • The possibility of improved detection discrimination between selected materials; the high absorption of several 1ight materials such as hydrogen, lithium, and boron; and the relatively low absorption of many heavy materials are some characteristics which make neutron radiographic inspection attractive as a complementary technique to xradiography. A study of neutron radiography is reported in which the emphasis has been placed upon determining many of the characteristics of various techniques for detecting neutron images. Characteristics of photographic detectors for thermal neutron images are outlined. (R.J.S.)
  • The conference focuses on recent advances in disciplines related to the analysis and design of aerospace structures. Topics discussed include damage tolerance of composites, computational structural mechanics, buckling/postbuckling of plates and stiffened panels, adaptive structures, spacecraft dynamics, and aeroelasticity. Other topics include unsteady aerodynamics, aerospace structural design optimization, modeling of material behavior, and ceramic matrix composites.
