  • The cross section for /ital gg//r arrow//ital BB/bar // is relatively high at collider energies, so that a one year run at RHIC or TEV I might yield /gt/10/sup 10/ /ital B/-/ital B/bar // pairs, and /gt/10/sup 12/ pairs at the SSC. The challege to the experimenter is to trigger on and reconstruct a significant fraction of this sample. Detectors are being proposed which make extensive use of silicon vertexing, VLSI readout, and massive online numerical processing with the goal of maintaining a 1% efficiency for few-body decays to all-charged final states. If achieved at the SSC for L=10/sup 32/more » cm/sup /minus/2/sec/sup /minus/1/, this would be equivalent to an /ital e//sup +//ital e/minus// /ital B/ factory operating at L=10/sup 36/ cm/sup /minus/2/sec/sup /minus/1/ and 100% reconstruction efficiency. Even at RHIC or TEV I with 10/sup 8/ reconstructible /ital B/'s, the strongest signals for /ital CP/ violation in the /ital B//minus//ital B/bar // system would be accessible.« less
  • The cable assemblies described are used in a weapon application and were constructed by joining several flat flexible branches at the terminations in a precision-tiered arrangement. The present discussion relates specifically to the problems encountered in the design and fabrication of development assemblies. The cable branches were produced from copper clad Kapton laminate by the photo-etching process and were covercoated with Kapton insulation to protect and isolate the conductors. Subminiature rack and panel type connectors were used as the terminations. Polyurethane encapsulation provided both the required environmental backseal of the completed assembly and the needed mechanical support for the solderedmore » connections.« less
  • This article discusses how the natural gas industry changed in the 1980's due to competition, the futures market, transport, bypass, seasonality. These changes affected consumers and regulators as well. Topics discussed include post bubble effects, cost allocation, local distribution company supply purchase, obligation to serve, equity in market access, and the future.
  • The paper discusses the mitigation of radon levels in basement houses when sub-slab depressurization (SSD), a widely used mitigation technique, is not a viable option. For example, in some houses the slab is poured directly on the soil, resulting in poor-to-nonexistent communication under the slab. To apply SSD requires elaborate plumbing and multiple suction holes in the slab. To develop viable alternatives, EPA has funded research to explore other radon mitigation options. Case studies include: basement pressurization with and without heat extraction, and filtration using charcoal. In the first, air from the upper portion of the house was forced intomore » the basement, producing a pressure barrier at the slab/soil interface. In one house, heat was extracted from the upstairs using a heat pump to supply hot water for the occupants. In the second, a bed of charcoal was used to remove the radon gas. The charcoal bed was flushed with outdoor air to extract the radon before its complete decay to radon daughters.« less
  • What is the fastest way to cool something If the object is macroscopic it is to lower the surrounding temperature as much as possible and let Newton's cooling law take effect. If we enter the microscopic world where quantum mechanics rules, this procedure may no longer be the best. This is shown in a simple example where we calculate the optimum cooling rate for an asymmetric two-state system.
