  • This fact sheet describes how the Industrial Technologies Program ChemPEP Tool can help chemical plants assess their plant-wide energy consumption.
  • Metrology requirements for optical components for third generation synchrotron sources are taxing the state-of-the-art in manufacturing technology. We have investigated a number of effect sources in a commercial figure measurement instrument, the Long Trace Profiler II (LTP II), and have demonstrated that, with some simple modifications, we can significantly reduce the effect of error sources and improve the accuracy and reliability of the measurement. By keeping the optical head stationary and moving a penta prism along the translation stage, the stability of the optical system is greatly improved, and the remaining error signals can be corrected by a simple referencemore » beam subtraction. We illustrate the performance of the modified system by investigating the distortion produced by gravity on a typical synchrotron mirror and demonstrate the repeatability of the instrument despite relaxed tolerances on the translation stage.« less
  • A novel optical profiler is described in this paper for measurement of surface profiles of synchrotron radiation (SR) mirrors. The measurement is based on a combination of an optical heterodyne technique and a precise phase measurement procedure without a reference surface. A Zeeman two-frequency He-Ne laser is employed as the light source. The common-path optical system, which uses a birefringent lens as the beam splitter, minimizes the effects of air turbulence, sample vibration and temperature variation. A special autofocus system allows the profiler to measure the roughness and shape of a sample surface. The optical system is mounted on amore » large linear air-bearing slide, and is capable of scanning over distances covering the spatial period range from several microns to nearly one meter with a high measurement accuracy. 9 refs., 5 figs.« less
  • Observations from two Doppler sodars and a radar wind profiler have been used in conjunction with data from a rawinsonde station and a mesoscale surface observation network to conduct a case study of a gravity current entering into an environment containing a nocturnal inversion and an elevated neutral layer. On the basis of synoptic and mesoscale analyses, it is concluded that the gravity current might have originated either as a scale-contracted cold front or as a gust front resulting from thunderstorm outflows observed very near the leading edge of a cold front. Despite this ambiguity, the detailed vertical structure ofmore » the gravity current itself is well resolved from the data. Moreover, the vertical velocity measurements provided by the sodars and the radar wind profiler at high time resolution have given unique information about the height structure of gravity waves excited by the gravity current. Although only wave periods, and not phase speeds or wavelengths, are directly measured, it is possible to make reasonable inferences about wave excitation mechanisms and about the influence and control of ambient stratification on wave-field characteristics. Both Kelvin-Helmholtz waves generated in the regions of high wind shear found in association with the gravity current and lee-type waves forced by the gravity current acting as an obstacle to opposing prefrontal flow are identified. It is also found that the propagation speed of the gravity current and the relative depths of the prefrontal inversion and the postfrontal cold air were not favorable for the formation of either internal bores or solitary waves at the time of day at which the gravity current was being observed. 42 refs., 18 figs., 1 tab.« less
