Title: NANOSCALE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SENSORS

Abstract

Under this funding, we proposed to: i) develop a ChemFET sensor platform, ii) develop a ChemDiode sensor platform, iii) synthesize receptor molecules suitable for chemical sensing, iv) study the electrostatic potential changes induced by receptor/target binding on surfaces and v) develop VLSI fabrication approaches for micron-scale chemical sensor devices. The accomplishments under these various thrusts are summarized in this section.

  • This report describes important future research directions in nanoscale science, engineering and technology. It was prepared in connection with an anticipated national research initiative on nanotechnology for the twenty-first century. The research directions described are not expected to be inclusive but illustrate the wide range of research opportunities and challenges that could be undertaken through the national laboratories and their major national scientific user facilities with the support of universities and industry.
  • This equipment grant permitted purchase of a complete optical-fiber draw facility and auxilliary equipment for the fiber-characterization laboratory. The draw tower was erected in a specially prepared laboratory. It is a 7.8-m automated tower with a 20-kW carbon induction furnace, and sufficient room for two UV coating stages, or a UV coating stage and a thermal-curing stage. The tower installation took perhaps somewhat more time than initially anticipated, largely due to difficulties in the site preparation. The tower itself was installed on a reinforced-concrete pad, with appropriate vibration isolation. Experience was gained in the use of the tower, and kilometermore » lengths of fiber were drawn that range in diameter from 50 to 250 microns, with a tolerance of the order of a few microns. In anticipation of expanding the coating capabilities of the draw tower, a vacuum system was purchased for use with radio-frequency sputtering on-line on the tower. This will be particularly useful for ceramic-coated fibers in the study of the behavior of fiber-strengthened composite materials.« less
  • This report provides a description of the statements submitted for the record to the committee on Science, Space, and Technology of the United States House of Representatives. These statements describe three principal areas of activity of the Advanced Reactor Technology Program of the Department of Energy (DOE). These areas are advanced fuel cycle technology, modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactor technology, and liquid metal-cooled reactor. The areas of automated reactor control systems, robotics, materials and structural design shielding and international cooperation were included in these statements describing the Oak Ridge National Laboratory's efforts in these areas.

  • The Tribal Colleges Initiatives in Science and Environmental Education (TCI) was developed in collaboration with the Partnership for Environmental Technology Education (PETE). This program is focused on long-term, systematic change through assisting tribally-controlled colleges in improving science and technology infrastructure, faculty and curricula. The goals are to: develop new or enhance existing science and technology education programs within tribally-controlled colleges and affiliates with a focus on environmental education and technology; establish and maintain clearly defined and secure educational pathways for Native American students; produce more Native American environmental and advanced degree graduates who can contribute to meeting the environmental/natural resourcemore » management and economic development goals of Indian Nations; and enhance the general level of Native American scientific literacy through improved public access to information.« less
  • This is a combined report based on the notes of members of a four-person US team of specialists on energy-related RandD who visited the USSR in October 1979 under the auspices of the US-USSR Science Policy Working Group. The purpose of the visit was to study the organization, management, and development in Soviet energy RandD institutions. The team had discussions at the Czerzhinskiy All-Union Research Institute for Heat Engineering, the Krzhizhanovskiy Institute of Power Engineering, the All-Union Scientific Research Institute for Electrical Machine-Building, the Scientific Research Institute of Direct Current, the All-Union Scientific Research Institute for Hydraulic Engineering, and themore » Leningrad Electro-Technical Production Association (Eelektrosila).« less
