  • Design and evaluation of radio frequency (RF) systems that must operate through ionospheric disturbances requires an accurate channel model. Such a model can be used to construct realizations of the received signal for use in digital simulations of transionospheric communications links and radars or hardware channel simulators. This report presents a review of RF propagation through structured ionization, starting with Maxwell's equations and ending with the two-position, two frequency, two-time mutual coherence function of the received signal. The derivation of the mutual coherence function requires a model for the temporal and spatial variations of the electron density fluctuations in themore » ionosphere. Under Taylor's frozen in hypothesis, the electron density fluctuations are described as a rigid structure that drifts past the line-of-sight. In the fully turbulent case, the spatial and temporal fluctuations of the electron density are uncorrelated. Reality should lie somewhere between these two limiting models.« less
  • The project team consisting of the Consensus Building Institute, Inc., Raab Associates, Ltd., and the MIT-Harvard Program on Negotiation created a model and set of tools for building the capacity of state officials to effectively collaborate with diverse stakeholders in advancing wind development policy formation, wind facility siting, and transmission policy and siting. The model was used to enhance the ability of state officials to advance wind development in their states. Training was delivered in Cambridge, MA, in Spring 2011. The training and associated materials, including a Wind Energy Workbook, website, and simulations, is available for ongoing and widespread disseminationmore » throughout the US.« less
  • Aluminum gallium arsenide solar cells were irradiated with 1.0 and 1.4 MeV electrons, and with 0.9 and 3.0 MeV protons to determine radiation sensitivity. Electron fluences ranged from 1 x 10 to the 14th power to 3 x 10 to the 16 power electrons, 1 sq cm, and proton fluences from 5 x 10 to the 10 power to 2.7 x 10 to the 12th power/sqcm. A solar simulator and a tungsten lamp were used to evaluate changes in the current-voltage characteristics curves. In most cases, AlGaAs solar cells showed a greater resistance to radiation than silicon cells.
  • A two part study of soft x-ray laser media is presented. Experimental observation of significant population inversion on the Balmer alpha transition in hydrogen-like flourine at 81 A in a line-focus laser plasma is reported. An analysis of the expected performance of soft x-ray multilayer reflects is presented. This volume discusses the development of an XUV (extreme ultraviolet) amplifier.
