  • This technical report summarizes research and development work on parametric devices. The results of experimental investigation of Raman scattering in acetonitrile and methane using a repetitively Q-switched Nd:YAG pump, 10 micrometers doubling in proustite, difference frequency mixing in lithium niobate to generate coherent infrared radiation, and four frequency oscillation in calcite are presented and discussed. The theory of backward traveling wave optical parametric interactions including momentum mismatch and diffraction is included.
  • Three different axisymmetric magnetic mirror fusion machines are examined in order to optimize the ratio of the fusion power produced by them to the power injected into them to maintain the plasma. This ratio is called Q. These three devices were chosen to study the continuum between a simple mirror and a tandem mirror. This allowed the evolutionary process leading from the simple to the tandem mirror to be examined in detail. In particular, the Kelley mirror, which corresponds to the middle step, was examined in depth for the first time. 37 refs., 54 figs., 17 tabs.
  • This report is the final document reporting information developed in Task III of a Program Study of Potential Early Commercial MHD Power Plants under NASA Contract DEN 3-51. Task II consisted of the conceptual design of one of the reference plants analyzed in Task I. The Task II plant was identified as attractive and selected on the basis of Task I results. It employs oxygen enrichment of the combustion air and has a nominal plant capacity of 950 MW/sub e/. Task II permitted more detailed design analysis than that possible in the initial parametric analysis. Task III reported on inmore » this document consisted of parametric performance and cost analyses of two plants of the same basic configuration as the plant studied in Task II but smaller in size. The two power plant sizes investigated in Task III correspond to nominal plant capacities of 200 MW/sub e/ and 500 MW/sub e/, respectively. The smallest plant size of 200 MW/sub e/ corresponds to the size presently specified for the Engineering Test Facility (ETF). In addition to providing cost estimates for each of the two downsized plants in Task III consistent with the cost analyses used in Task II, a capital cost estimate for a ''first of its kind'' power plant was developed for the smallest plant size of 200 MW/sub e/. This latter estimate served to identify the impact of applying learning curve factors to cost estimates of new technology items. Also, a detailed breakdown of the operating and maintenance cost of the larger Task II plant was a separate work subtask item of Task III. 8 refs., 52 figs., 36 tabs.« less
