What is STIP?

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP) is a collaboration from across the DOE complex working to ensure that the results of DOE-funded research and development (R&D) and other science and technology activities are identified, disseminated, and preserved.

Why We're Here

STIP members, led by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), work together to increase the availability and transparency of various types of scientific and technical information (STI).  This site provides background, guidance, and more to support the management and preservation of DOE-funded R&D results now and in the future.

Species Selective Pressure Gauge for High Performance Divertors. Final report Saturation of the optical emission signal at high neutral pressures severely complicates the use of the Species-Selective Penning Gauge in high performance divertors, where the pressure tends to exceed the saturation lilmit. The use of differential pumping is undesirable in tritium applications and... Author(s): Klepper, C Christopher
Influence of thermal aging (to 50,000 h) on the tensile properties of modified 9Cr-1Mo steel Results of room- and elevated-temperature tensile tests are reported from tests conducted on three heats of Modified 9Cr-1Mo steel. The heats were thermally aged at various temperatures from 482 to 704{degree}C and at aging time to 50,000 h. Tensile strain rates were also varied in order to...
