The authors address the progress and trends in cable designs, applications, and installations. While medium voltage cable is emphasized, certain types of low-voltage cable are also considered. Improvements in materials and design are discussed for each component part of the cable including the conductor, semiconducting shields, insulation, metallic shield,(More)
When dye-doped ethanol droplets are irradiated with an intense pulsed laser beam, the resulting laser emission from individual droplets highlights the liquid-air interface. Photographs of the lasing droplets in the micrometer size range taken in a single 10-nanosecond laser pulse clearly show the dynamic changes in droplet size, shape, and orientation.
The DØ experiment at Fermilab's Tevatron will record several petabytes of data over the next five years in pursuing the goals of understanding nature and searching for the origin of mass. Computing resources required to analyze these data far exceed capabilities of any one institution. Moreover, the widely scattered geographical distribution of DØ(More)
Periodically an experiment will reprocess data taken previously to take advantage of advances in its reconstruction code and improved understanding of the detector. Within a period of 6 months the DØ experiment has reprocessed, on the grid, a large fraction (0.5fb −1) of the Run II data. This corresponds to some 1 billion events or 250TB of data and used(More)
The DØ experiment is one of the two High-Energy proton anti-proton collider experiments at Fermilab, USA. Since the detector serves multiple physics purposes, it consists of many different sub-detector systems together with supporting control systems. Therefore, on-line event monitoring plays a crucial role in ensuring detector performance and data quality(More)
The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of IEEE 1242-1999, Guide for Specifying and Selecting Power, Control, and Special Purpose Cable for Petroleum and Chemical Plants. This standard addresses wire and cable design, materials, testing, and installation, along with illustrations of typical constructions and application criteria.
