Title: About the parametrizations utilized to perform magnetic moments measurements using the transient field technique

Abstract

The experimental study of nuclear magnetic moments, using the Transient Field technique, makes use of spin-orbit hyperfine interactions to generate strong magnetic fields, above the kilo-Tesla regime, capable to create a precession of the nuclear spin. A theoretical description of such magnetic fields is still under theoretical research, and the use of parametrizations is still a common way to address the lack of theoretical information. In this contribution, a review of the main parametrizations utilized in the measurements of Nuclear Magnetic Moments will be presented, the challenges to create a theoretical description from first principles will be discussed.

  • The transient internal probe (TIP) is a novel diagnostic technique for measuring magnetic fields in hot plasmas. The concept involves shooting a diamond clad magneto-optic probe through the plasma at high velocity allowing measurement of the local magnetic field before ablation occurs. Magnetic field measurements are obtained by illuminating the probe with an argon laser and measuring the amount of Faraday rotation in the reflected light. The diagnostic was tested by measuring a permanent magnetic field inside a vacuum chamber with a probe traveling at 2 km/s using an unclad probe. The purpose of this experiment was to demonstrate themore » capability of the TIP diagnostic and to verify compatibility with plasma vacuum requirements. Magnetic field resolutions of 20 G and 1 cm spatial resolution were achieved. The response time of the detection system is 10 MHz. Introduction of a helium muzzle gas into the plasma chamber was limited to less than 0.4 Torrl. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • The precession of the angular distribution of gamma rays deexciting the 2[sub 1][sup +] states of [sup 194,196,198]Pt and [sup 148]Nd nuclei have been measured by the transient field method. Average values of the transient field acting at Pt and Nd ions recoiling through gadolinium have been obtained from these data, and are shown to validate the Rutgers parametrization in the recoil velocity range 1.9[le]([ital v]/[ital v][sub 0])[lt]=4.6. The [ital g](2[sub 1][sup +]) factors of [sup 196,198]Pt relative to [ital g]([sup 194]Pt)=0.302(16) have also been deduced: [ital g]([sup 196]Pt)=0.302(24) and [ital g]([sup 198]Pt)=0.350(30), in good agreement with other transient fieldmore » measurements.« less
  • An experimental study of heat transfer rates from the test surface in an 11 m long Ludwieg Wind Tunnel was conducted. The flow prevailing in the tunnel is transient, accelerating and low subsonic. It lasts several milliseconds. Fast response thin platinum film transducers are utilized to obtain heat transfer data. The unsteady boundary layer at a given location is first laminar, then transitional and finally fully turbulent. The data for the laminar and turbulent boundary layer compare well with the results from Cohen's solution and Reynolds analogy, respectively. The test conditions include constant wall temperature (room temperature) and a coolermore » free stream. The measured wall heat fluxes are in the range of 0.1 to 0.8 w/cm/sup 2/.« less
  • Heat transfer measurements have been made in the Oxford University Cold Heat transfer Tunnel employing the transient liquid crystal technique. Complete contours of that transfer coefficient have been obtained on the aerofoil surfaces of a large annular cascade of high-pressure nozzle guide vanes (mean blade diameter of 1.11 m and axial chord of 0.0664 m). The measurements are made at engine representative Mach and Reynolds numbers (exit Mach number 0.96 and Reynolds number 2.0 {times} 10{sup 6}). A novel mechanisms used to isolate five preheated blades in the annulus before an unheated flow of air passes over the vanes, creatingmore » a step change, in heat transfer. The surfaces of interest are coated with narrow-band thermochromic liquid crystals and the color crystal change is recorded during the run with a miniature CCD video camera. The heat transfer coefficient is obtained by solving the one-dimensional heat transfer equation for all the points of interest. This paper will describe the experimental technique and present results of heat transfer and flow visualization.« less
