  • Program planning support was provided by; developing a geothermal RD and D program structure, characterizing the status of geothermal RD and D through review of literature and interaction with the geothermal research community, developing a candidate list of future Texas geothermal projects, and prioritizing the candidate projects based on appropriate evaluation criteria. The method used to perform this study and the results thereof are presented. Summary reviews of selected completed and ongoing projects and summary descriptions and evaluations of the candidate RD and D projects ar provided. A brief discussion emerging federal RD and D policies is presented. References andmore » independent project rankings by three of the GRP members are included. (MHR)« less
  • Photocathode rf guns produce high-energy low-emittance electron beams. DC guns utilizing GaAs photocathodes have proven successful for generating polarized electron beams for accelerators, but they require rf bunching systems that significantly increase the transverse emittance of the beam. With higher extraction field and beam energy, rf guns can support higher current densities at the cathode. The source laser system can then be used to generate the high peak current, relatively low duty-factor micropulses required by the ILC without the need for post-extraction rf bunching. The net result is that the injection system for a polarized rf gun can be identicalmore » to that for an unpolarized rf gun. However, there is some uncertainty as to the survivability of an activated GaAs cathode in the environment of an operating rf gun. Consequently, before attempting to design a polarized rf gun for the ILC, SLAC plans to develop an rf test gun to demonstrate the rf operating conditions suitable for an activated GaAs cathode.« less
  • At CERN, KEK, Novosibirsk and SLAC, serious thought is being given to the design of linear colliders in the 0.5--2.0 TeV center-of-mass energy range. This paper reviews current progress at SLAC toward the design of such a collider. No attempt is made here to summarize ongoing work at the other laboratories. However, research on linear colliders is clearly an international effort, and success at SLAC will be greatly expedited by communication and cooperation with other laboratories in the US and abroad. In addition to major programs at the laboratories mentioned above, contributions relevant to linear collider design are being mademore » at DESY, LAL (Orsay), LBL, LLNL and elsewhere. 49 refs., 6 tabs.« less
  • This paper describes recent progress on the development of high polarization photocathodes for polarized electron sources. A strained InGaAs cathode has achieved a maximum electron-spin polarization of 71% and has demonstrated the strain enhancement of polarization for the first time. Strained GaAs cathodes have yielded polarizations as high as 90% with much higher quantum efficiency.
  • The purpose of this document is to summarize the work that has been done at SLAC in the last three or four months to assess the possibilities of two-beam linear colliders proposed by Ron Ruth, and to compare these colliders to the current NLC designs and their costs. The work is based on general discussions with C. Adolphsen, D. Burke, J. Irwin, J. Paterson, R. Ruth, T. Lavine and T. Raubenheimer, with considerable work done by the latter two. Given the complexities of these machines, the fact that the designs are far from complete and that all cost estimates aremore » still in a state of flux, it is clear that the conclusions drawn in this report cannot be cast in concrete. On the other hand, it does not seem too early to present the results that have been gathered so far, even if the facts contain significant uncertainties and the costs have large error bars. Now that R. Ruth has returned to SLAC, he will be able to add his point of view to the discussion. At this time, the conclusions presented here are the sole responsibility of the author.« less
