1098-4402= Commissioning of two large coherent light facilities (XFELs) at SLAC and DESY should begin in 2008 and 2011, respectively. In this paper we look further into the future, hoping to answer, in a very preliminary way, two questions. First: What will the next generation of XFEL facilities look like? Believing that superconducting technology offers… (More)
Increasing competition and the pressures of cutting costs are threatening the survival of single specialty groups. The author points out that these groups must be imaginative and innovative in developing networks with what may once have been economic enemies or they will die. A description of these some of these alternative health plans is included.
Certain petroleum production activities cause naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) to accumulate in concentrations above natural background levels, making safe and cost-effective management of such technologically enhanced NORM (TENORM) a key issue for the petroleum industry. As a result, both industry and regulators are interested in… (More)
We present an air knife design for creating a heated air curtain to protect optical infrared access windows in high-temperature, condensing, and corrosive stack environments. The design uses the Coanda effect to turn the air curtain and to attach the air curtain to the window surface. The design was tested and verified on our 24 m stack and used extensively… (More)
A preliminary radiological dose assessment of equipment decontamination, subsurface disposal, landspreading, equipment smelting, and equipment burial was conducted to address concerns regarding the presence of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) in production waste streams. The assessment estimated maximum individual dose equivalents for… (More)
An outdoor non-contact temperature retrieval algorithm using graybody assumption is under development for supporting the U.S. Department of Energy's Remote Sensing Test and Evaluation mission. This paper reports the initial progress of the development.
