The medium-energy beam transport (MEBT) of the Spal-lation Neutron Source (SNS) is described. It transports a 2.5 MeV, 52 mA H beam through a series of 14 quadrupoles and four 402.5 MHz rebuncher cavities from the RFQ to the DTL. A 10-nsec rise/falltime traveling wave chopper/antichopper is incorporated in the transport lattice. Special emphasis is given to(More)
Conventional design of a mobile robot ensures its stability by keeping the gravity vector through the center of mass inside the structure's polygon of support determined by the contact points between the structure and the ground. This assumption of quasi-static stability fails to hold when the robot moves at high speed as the inertial forces become(More)
Electrolytic in-process dressing (ELID) grinding is a well established technology for achieving highest quality surface finish on hard and brittle materials such as optical glass, ceramics, and silicon compounds. In conventional ELID grinding, constant voltage is applied on the metal-bonded diamond wheels to ensure constant protrusion of super fine cutting(More)
Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs forest) array is known to be the darkest material on earth. However, post processing of VACNTs array by micro mechanical bending (M<sup>2</sup>B) causes the individual CNT to be bent, flattened and reflective. This interesting change in the optical property of CNT forest opens the gateway, to use it as(More)
