  • Time resolved x-ray spectroscopy is used to study the implosion of indirectly driven inertial confinement fusion capsules on the Nova laser. Through the use of high-Z dopants (Ar and Xe) in the fuel, measurements of the peak temperature, from emission line ratios, and density, from line broadening, are obtained. These measurements indicate peak electron temperatures of [approx]1-- 1.6 keV and electron and deuteron densities in the range of 1.0 -- 2.0 [times] 10[sup 24] cm[sup [minus]3], depending on the type of laser drive used. The higher densities are achieved on targets that are driven with a shaped laser drive thatmore » allows a more isentropic compression of the fuel. Emission from high-Z pusher dopants have also been studied. These dopants can provide information on pusher conditions and can be used to study mix at the pusher fuel interface.« less

  • Abundances of Mo isotopes predicted by stellar models of the s process are, except for {sup 95}Mo, in good agreement with data from single grains of mainstream presolar SiC. Because the meteorite data seemed sound and no reasonable modification to stellar theory resulted in good agreement for {sup 95}Mo, it has been suggested that the recommended neutron capture reaction rate for this nuclide is 30% too low. Therefore, we have made a new determination of the {sup 95}Mo(n,{gamma}) reaction rate via high-resolution measurements of the neutron-capture and total cross sections of {sup 95}Mo at the Oak Ridge Electron Linear Accelerator.more » These data were analyzed with the R-matrix code SAMMY to obtain parameters for resonances up to E{sub n} = 10 keV. Also, a small change to our capture apparatus allowed us to employ a new technique to vastly improve resonance spin and parity assignments. These new resonance parameters, together with our data in the unresolved range, were used to calculate the {sup 95}Mo(n,{gamma}) reaction rate at s-process temperatures. We compare the currently recommended rate to our new results and discuss their astrophysical impact.« less
  • Multiple facets of an innovative research endeavor involving high magnetic field processing will be highlighted for this very promising technology initiative for materials and process development. This approach has both scientific and industrial relevance with significant energy savings and environmental benefit ramifications and represents a major step towards achieving materials by design goals for the next generation of materials encompassing both structural and functional material applications. Our experimental and modeling research efforts are clearly demonstrating that phase stability (conventional phase diagrams) can be dramatically altered through the application of an ultrahigh magnetic field. This ability to selectively control microstructural stabilitymore » and alter transformation kinetics through appropriate selection of the magnetic field strength is being shown to provide a very robust mechanism to develop and tailor enhanced microstructures (even potential bulk nanostructures through accelerated product phase nucleation and transformation kinetics) with potentially superior properties. The broad goals for this research are to demonstrate and document the influence of ultrahigh magnetic field processing on the phase equilibria and kinetics for ferromagnetic and paramagnetic material systems and to develop predictive capability based on first principle calculations.« less
  • We demonstrate how advanced exploratory data analysis coupled to data-mining techniques can be used to scrutinize the high-dimensional data space of photovoltaics in the context of thin films of Al-doped ZnO (AZO), which are essential materials as a transparent conducting oxide (TCO) layer in CuInxGa1-xSe2 (CIGS) solar cells. AZO data space, wherein each sample is synthesized from a different process history and assessed with various characterizations, is transformed, reorganized, and visualized in order to extract optimal process conditions. The data-analysis methods used include parallel coordinates, diffusion maps, and hierarchical agglomerative clustering algorithms combined with diffusion map embedding.
