A study of the kinetics of denitrification was carried out in the laboratory based on the quantification of N2O, the final product of the activity of denitrifying microorganisms, when the enzymatic reduction of N2O to N2 was blocked by acetylene. Concentrated mixed liquor (sludge from a reactor with intermittent aeration used for sewage treatment) was used(More)
The ISAC facility, located at TRIUMF, first began delivering radioactive ion beams (RIBs) in 1998, added post-accelerated beam capability in 2001, and is regarded as one of the premiere RIB facilities in the world. The existing constraints on RIBs of Z<83 and accelerated beams of A/q≤30 with energies limited to 5 MeV/u are being addressed. A charge-state(More)
A 0.5 megawatt electron linear accelerator is being designed at TRIUMF in support of its expanding rare isotope program, which targets nuclear structure and astrophysics studies as well as material science. The first stage of the project, a 25 MeV, 5 mA, c.w. linac matching the isotope production target power-handling capability in the next five-year plan,(More)
The TRIUMF-VECC Electron Linac is a device for gamma-ray induced fission of actinide targets, with applications in nuclear physics and material science. A phased construction and commissioning scheme will eventually lead to a 50 MeV, 10 mA CW linac based on superconducting RF technology. Using this linac to deliver high intensity electron beams for(More)
The ISAC II superconducting LINAC is now in the operational phase. The linac was commissioned with stable ion beams from an off-line source. The commissioning not only proved the integrity of the infrastructure but bench marked the beam quality and RF cavity performance. Measurements of the transverse and longitudinal emittance are consistent with little or(More)
The off-line ion source (OLIS) terminal consists of a microwave cusp ion source, either a surface ion source or a hybrid surface-arc discharge ion source and an electrostatic switch that allows selecting any one of the sources without mechanical intervention. These sources provide variety of beams to ISAC experiments, for commissioning the accelerators, for(More)
