Page 81 - This program develops the knowledge base necessary to identify, understand, and anticipate the long-term health and environmental consequences of energy use and development and utilizes the Department's unique scientific and technological capabilities to solve major scientific problems in the environment, medicine, and biology.
Page 17 - Department supports two major high energy physics accelerator centers — the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Each of these laboratories provides unique capabilities and is operated as a national facility available to qualified experimenters around the nation and abroad on the basis of the scientific merit of their research proposals.
Page 57 - These funds will ensure that BES-supported researchers will continue to have the equipment needed to initiate and continue advanced research, much of which involves experiments at extremes of temperature and pressure. Reliable, precise measurements under these conditions challenge the current state-of-the-art. Replacements and new equipment funded under this request, which are important to the continued success of the program, include such items as electron microscopes, neutron spectrometers, molecular...
Page 190 - The idea of the SSC began to take shape at the 1982 Summer Study on Elementary particle Physics and Future Facilities organized in Snowmass, Colorado, by the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society. The SSC initiative was followed up with workshops on accelerator and detector issues held during 1983 at Cornell University and at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.

Page 190 - ... to develop the technical means to take that step. Formal studies of the feasibility of a multi-TeV accelerator began with workshops sponsored by the International Committee on Future Accelerators at Fermilab in 1978 and at CERN in 1979.
Page 178 - One might ask whether basic circuits in computers might have been found by people who wanted to build computers. As it happens, they were discovered in the thirties by physicists dealing with the counting of nuclear particles because they were interested in nuclear physics. One might ask whether there would be nuclear power because people wanted new sources or whether the urge to have new power would have led to the discovery of the nucleus.
Page 58 - The seven major user facilities are: the High Flux Beam Reactor and the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Combustion Research Facility at Sandia-Livermore, the High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory at Stanford University, the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source at Argonne National Laboratory and the Los Alamos Neutron Scattering Center at Los Alamos National Laboratory. At...
Page 15 - In recent years, high energy physicists have developed an increasingly better understanding of the forces of nature and the unifying connections among them. The four known fundamental forces are the electromagnetic force, the weak force, the strong force, and the gravitational force.
Page 47 - He turn to the Basic Energy Sciences program. BASIC ENERGY SCIENCES Basic research Is the first link In the chain of events from scientific discovery to economic growth through technological Innovation. Results from research sponsored by the Basic Energy Sciences (BES) program become an Integral part of the Information base used In the development of the applied technologies within the Department and are equally Important within the private sector. In addition to underpinning technology development,...
