10 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1989
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

HIGH VACUUM PLASMA PUMPING OFFERS AN IMPORTANT, ATTRACTIVE, AND VIABLE METHOD OF PRODUCING VACUA. SINCE NO MECHANICAL MOVING PARTS ARE EMPLOYED, IT IS INHERENTLY RUGGED. MOREOVER, IT CAN ACHIEVE HIGH VALUES OF HYDROGEN AND HELIUM THROUGHPUT WITH EXCELLENT FLEXIBILITY AND SPEED. A HIGH VACUUM PLASMA PUMPING METHOD, THE PLASMA VACUUM PUMP (PVP), T...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1988
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

FOR THE OPTIMIZATION OF TOKAMAK PERFORMANCE, THE INTERNATIONAL FUSION ENERGY COMMUNITY GENERALLY HAS A NEED FOR CURRENT DENSITY PROFILE MEASUREMENTS. TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH MEASUREMENTS, IT IS PLANNED TO ACCELERATE UNPOLARIZED GROUND STATE ATOMS (HYDROGEN OR HELIUM) ALONG A CHORD THROUGH THE PLASMA TO A DISTANT PARTICLE DETECTOR ON THE OUTER WALL OF...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1986
Budget: 01/01/86 - 12/31/86

THE THERMAL-BARRIER CONCEPT FOR TANDEM MAGNETIC MIRRORS HAS GREATLY INHANCED THE ATTRACTIVENESS OF THIS APPROACH TO CONFINING HIGH-TEMPERATURE PLASMAS FOR FUSION POWER. TRANSIENT EXISTENCE OF THERMAL BARRIERS HAS ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATED IN THE TMX EXPERIMENT AT LIVERMORE AND IN THE GAMMA 10 EXPERIMENT IN JAPAN, USING ELECTRON CYCLOTRON HEATING...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1986
Budget: 01/01/86 - 12/31/86

THIS PROJECT WILL ASSESS THE REQUIREMENTS AND PROVIDE A BASIS FOR DESIGNING AN OPTIMIZED SYSTEM FOR A TOKAMAK REACTOR TO REACH THE HIGH-BETA, "SECOND STABILITY REGIME" FROM STARTUP, USING ELECTRON CYCLO- TRON HEATING (ECH) TECHNIQUES. THE POWER NEEDED TO ACHIEVE A STABLE PLASMA EVOLUTION TO THE "SECOND STAILITY REGIME" USING HOT PARTICLES IS SIG...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1985
Budget: 01/01/85 - 12/31/85

RELATIVISTIC-ELECTRON PLASMAS, CREATED AND SUSTAINED BY ELECTRON CYCLOTRON HEATING (ECH) IN MAGNETIC- MIRROR FIELDS, HAVE MANY PROMISING APPLICATIONS. THEY CAN BE USED TO STABILIZE PLASMA CONFINEMENT CONFIGURATIONS, SUCH AS THE ELMO BUMPY SQUARE, THE HELIAC, AND EVEN TOKAMAKS; AND THEY CAN ENCHANCE CONFINEMENT IN TANDEM MIRROR DEVICES. THEY MAY ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1985
Budget: 01/01/85 - 12/31/85

GAS, A MAGNETIZED PLASMA STREAM CAN FUNCTION AS A HIGH-SPEED VACUUM PUMP WITH UNIQUE TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES. TO REALIZE THESE ADVANTAGES IN A PRACTICAL WAY, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO UTILIZE AN EFFICIENT ELECTRON HEATING TECHNIQUE TO CREATE THE PLASMA AND MAINTAIN THE OPTIMAL ELECTRON TEMPERATURE. THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HERE IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE APPLICA...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1984
Budget: 01/01/84 - 12/31/84

THIS PROJECT WILL ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF ENHANCING THE PERFORMANCE OF TOROIDAL DEVICES FOR MAGNETIC CONFINEMENT OF FUSION PLASMAS BY USING HIGH-BETA, HOT-ELECTRON, SURFACE- LAYER PLASMAS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS ENHANCEMENT IS TO PERMIT STABLE OPERATION AT SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER VALUES OF BETA THAN CAN BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT THE HOT-ELECTRON LAYER. ...
