  • This document presents motivations, goals and the current status of this project; development (fabrication, performance) of position-sensitive virtual Frisch-grid detectors proposed for nanoRaider, an instrument commonly used by nuclear inspectors; ASIC developments for CZT detectors; and the electronics development for the detector prototype..
  • This presentation describes the Advanced Virtual Frisch-Grid ASIC (AVG-ASIC) and its function.
  • The Transportation Control Plan for the Baltimore metropolitan area sets forth the actions that will be taken by the region between now and 1987 to reduce the amount of air pollution caused by motor vehicles. Volume IV consists of evidence of the state and local commitments required for implementation of the recommended measures.
  • The report extends the work done in an earlier Water Research Center study of regional electric power planning in the Pacific Northwest. During 1977 and 1978 a complex set of legislative packages was introduced and debated in Congress and the region. These proposals aimed at comprehensive revision of the institutional structure of electric power allocation and planning in the Northwest; the existing structure is based on the Bonneville Project Act of 1937, and has been revised incrementally since then, as described in our earlier report. None of these legislative reformulations was successful, and the 95th Congress adjourned with a commitmentmore » to take up the question of regional power planning again in 1979. With interregnum prevailing in the region, there is need for evaluating the alternatives proposed, as well as development of new institutional concepts. Discussed are (1) premises for institutional redesign; (2) functions that must be carried out at the regional level; (3) prospects for alternative institutional orders emerging from the present political deadlock. In particular, it is argued that the costs and environmental impact of regional energy development will keep power planning enduringly controversial. Accordingly, leadership at the regional level will need to play a larger, more visible role than in the past. Two means by which such leadership might be given the institutional strength needed are (a) reallocation of low-cost federal hydropower on an incentive basis, rather than by either public or residential preference; or (b) the encouragement of a regional wholesale power market.« less
