Page 65 - Is for CEBAF, an accelerator with electron beams in the energy range of 0.5 to 4.0 GeV that will provide access to the critical transition region between the traditional (ie, nucleon) and the emerging (ie, quark) descriptions of nuclear matter.
Page 55 - Agencies, as well as with the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the Homeland Security Council.
Page 102 - The FY 1991 budget request of $3.7 million will provide funding for peer reviews and technical assessments of programs in the Office of Energy Research, as well as programs under the Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy and the Assistant Secretary for Conservation and Renewable Energy. In addition, funds will be provided to assess responses to the final NAPAP report and to continue to monitor interagency research results related to clean air issues. UNIVERSITY AND SCIENCE EDUCATION There is a growing...
Page 73 - Expenses request maintains a strong core research program 1n each of the BES subprograms. Research in Materials Sciences continues to improve our theoretical and experimental capability to analyze the fundamental structure and behavior of materials. In doing so, materials research contributes to the development of new or substitute materials that can improve performance and efficiency in energy systems.
Page 88 - Equipment request of $14.3 million will provide for essential hardware to support the overall program. This equipment includes diagnostic and computer equipment, power supplies, and other components for experimental facilities. The FY 1991 Construction request of $19.1 million (Table 10) provides $11.1 million for continued construction of the Confinement Physics Research Facility (CPRF) at LANL. The CPRF will provide an experimental capability to explore the physics properties of a reversed field...
Page 77 - FY 1991, this subprogram will continue its base program in plant and microbial sciences, including support for the plant science centers supported jointly by the Department, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Agriculture. The Program Direction request for FY 1991 is $6.5 million.
Page 73 - Laboratory, 28 has been Implemented in a structural analysis computer program by Cornell University to form a useful tool in material structure studies. FY 1991 BASIC ENERGY SCIENCES BUDGET REQUEST The FY 1991 budget request for Basic Energy Sciences is $648.7 million. The request includes $503.7 million for Operating Expenses, $37.0 million for Capital Equipment, and $108.0 million for Construction. (Table 7) The Operating Expenses request maintains a strong core research program 1n each of the...
Page 63 - ... commissioning. Already, 245 physicists from 60 institutions have submitted 47 research proposals for experiments at CEBAF. From these proposals, a program of experiments will ultimately be selected to be carried out when the facility goes into operation in FY 1994. Special emphasis will continue to be placed on effective use of the upgraded accelerators at the University of Washington, Texas A&M University, and Yale University as well as the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron at Brookhaven.
Page 101 - A major research needs assessment on coal liquefaction was also completed and will provide valuable information to help guide the program for the next several years. In addition to carrying out technical assessments and analyses, the ERA program plays a key role in coordinating the Department's involvement in acid rain research. Specifically, the program provides funds under the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) for summarizing the state of the science in acid rain research and...
Page 49 - Projects ($11.7 million) that are required to maintain the scientific effectiveness and the operating reliability and efficiency of the accelerator...
