Abstract:In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important… more
Abstract:Next generation reactor concepts cater to a common goal of providing safer, longer lasting and economically viable nuclear power plants. Developing radiation damage resistant materials for both in- core and out-of core applications is a critical component of these next generation power plants.… more
Abstract:Three different modalities of radiation sterilization currently exist: gamma-ray sterilization, electron beam sterilization, and x-ray sterilization. One of the most common ways to sterilize goods is with gamma producing radioactive sources, most commonly Co-60 and Cs-137. Long-term… more
Abstract:The main focus of photonuclear physics has always been investigation of the internal spatial and spin structure of the nuclei and nucleons. While high energy photons (over 100 MeV) are used most often to probe the nuclear structure and look deep into the nucleus, intermediate energy (1-40 MeV)… more
Abstract:Electromagnetic and particle-beam modeling is an important part of the design and manufacturing of accelerator components, such as electron beam sources and RF accelerating cavities. The premier electromagnetic and particle modeling tools today allow users to exploit parallel computing… more
Abstract:In the proposed collider eRHIC, hadrons from one of the RHIC storage rings will interact with electrons accelerated in a six-pass energy recovery linac (ERL). The maximum energy of protons will be 250 GeV and the maximum energy of electrons will be 30 GeV. The machine will heavily rely on SRF… more
Abstract:Innovative solutions are sought to reduce cost and lead-time of hot gas valve components located in the post boost control system (PBCS) of the U.S. Navy"s Trident II D-5 Fleet Ballistic Missile. Current PBCS components are based on Nb, Ta10W and TZM, with protective coatings. Although… more
Abstract:In fusion plasmas, ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) and lower hybrid range of frequency (LHRF) power is anticipated to be a primary auxiliary heating and current drive sources in next step tokamak experiments like ITER. From a technological perspective, several challenges remain including… more
Abstract:The recent events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant highlight the need for enhanced accident tolerance. Of particular concern is the overheating of standard zirconium alloy cladding material in a loss of coolant accident (LOCA). One of the leading, high-risk/high-reward candidates for future… more
Abstract:Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas (GHG,) with an atmospheric lifetime of ~114 years and a global warming impact ~300 times greater than that of CO2. The main cause of nitrous oxides atmospheric increase is anthropogenic emissions, and over 80% of the current global… more
Abstract:Monitoring the root systems of plants is essential to improving models of crop productivity, soil carbon sequestration and biogeochemical cycling. Fine roots (considered to be smaller than 1-2 mm in diameter) are the dominant component of this system, with roots & lt;0.2 mm in … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ThermoReg thermal model was developed to solve for tissue temperatures resulting from radio frequency (RF) heating using a voxel-based, heterogeneous tissue description of the human body. Although ThermoReg has been parallelized to run on high-performance computer clusters, the… more
Abstract:ThermoAnalytics Inc. (TAI), in partnership with Skidmore, Owings, & amp; Merrill LLP (SOM), will develop an integrated workflow for constructing energy models of single buildings and aggregates of buildings based on minimal user input. The proposed workflow represents a new paradigm for… more
Abstract:Buildings consume most energy and their top demand is Lighting, yet even LEDs remain inefficient and

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
