  • The foundations of many of the subdisciplines of radiological protection laid in accelerator laboratories began with the invention of accelerators. This paper suggests that the discipline of accelerator radiological protection has played and will continue play a more significant part in our lives than is generally recognized. A brief review of some existing uses of accelerators by society is given, and a few probable future uses are described. These future applications will result in the exposure of accelerator (or {open_quotes}mixed{close_quotes}) radiation fields to an increased population. Consequently, what are perceived to be the rather specialized concerns of today`s accelerator healthmore » physicists will -- by necessity -- become of general interest to all health physicists.« less
  • In 1973, immediately following the Arab Oil Embargo, the Energy Resources Center, University of Illinois at Chicago initiated an innovative annual public service program called the Illinois Energy Conference. The objective was to provide a public forum each year to address an energy or environmental issue critical to the state, region and nation. Twenty years have passed since that inaugural program, and during that period we have covered a broad spectrum of issues including energy conservation nuclear power, Illinois coal, energy policy options, natural gas, alternative fuels, new energy technologies, utility deregulation and the National Energy Strategy.
  • This paper investigates the renewable technologies of hydro, wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. It determines which of these technologies will be financially viable for a midwestern utility, such as PSI Energy, at the start of the next century. This paper concludes that renewable resources will not be in the generation portfolio as we enter the twenty-first century unless Solar efficiencies rise or capital costs decrease; Tipping fees for municipal solid waste increase or Locations with adequate wind resources can be developed.
  • International conferences have been held every four years. The planning and cooperation of the cosponsoring organizations: Kernforschungsanlage, Julich (West Germany) and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (Japan) is acknowledged who provided speakers and participated in organization of the conference. The Council of Alternate Fuels was a cooperating organization. The conference took place because of the high level of cooperation by the cochairmen Dr. N. J. Neef (KFA) and Mr. S. Tagawa (NEDO) who organized the speakers from abroad. Finally, the session chairmen who were colleagues from EPRI, utilities, NEDO, and organizations from the Federal Republic of Germany chairedmore » the technical sessions during the conference. Conferences similar to this have been held since the 1970s and represent opportunities to assess progress over some two decades. It is gratifying that much of the research started in the 1970s has been translated to practice, and forms the base for new commercial plants based on advanced system concepts that dramatically change the ordinary ways of generating electric power. Such changes require extraordinary dedication of scientific and engineering personnel that are drawn from a worldwide community.« less
  • This document describes the relationship between indoor radon exposure, cigarette smoking, and lung cancer. The author explains the sources of radon, the tissues at risk, the human populations most likely to be affected, and the estimates of lung cancer in the population. 6 refs., 2 tabs. (TEM)
