Page 541 - S7-8 million per annum for each of the first 3 years. - 7 II. BACKGROUND AND CHARGES Materials are of primary Importance In protecting the economic competitiveness of our nation, in efficient and reliable production and use of energy and also in any forseeable new energy and defense technologies. In acknowledgement of this vital role, the Department of Energy and Its antecedent organizations, the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), have consistently...
Page 10 - A part of the recent progress in high energy physics has been the conceptual unification of the weak nuclear and electromagnetic forces into a single "electroweak
Page 280 - SUMMARY 15 decades, DOE must make a much larger commitment to the chemical sciences. This commitment must engage more fully both the DOE National Laboratories and the larger chemistry community. Recommendation 6 (a) The DOE should establish a major initiative in those areas of chemistry relevant to the energy technologies of the future. (b) In an appropriate number of our National Laboratories, the defined mission should be reshaped to include a major focus on one or more of the chemistry areas crucial...
Page 299 - The Time It Takes to Wag a Tail When your pet dog sniffs a bone, instantly his tail begins to wag. But it must take some time for the northernmost canine extremity to send the news all the way south where enthusiasm can be registered! How long does it take for that delicious aroma to lead to the happy response at the other end? Chemists are now asking the questions much like this about their pet molecules! If one end of a molecule is excited, how long does it take for the other end to share in the...
Page 4 - Physics programs have made significant contributions not only to energy resource development, but to education, health. Industry and national defense. Contributions to the economic growth and prosperity of the Nation have come directly from the results of the research, from technological splnoffs and froa the training of tomorrow's scientists through participation of university graduate students In the research.
Page 45 - Is to help •alntaln strong scientific/technical research capabilities in support of the Department's long-range energy R&D mission. To accomplish this goal, the URS program provides a special Departmental focus for a number of efforts which primarily Involve universities and university faculty and students, both directly and in conjunction with the Department's national laboratories. The goals of these Interrelated efforts are to: o Maintain and strengthen university-based energy research and •anpower...
Page 52 - Laboratory. As such, it will identify and correct deficiencies at ORNL to ensure compliance with existing state and Federal regulations. Over the years, ORNL has generated a variety of radioactive and nonradioactive pollutants which were handled in accordance with existing environmental regulations. Since that time, a number of new regulatory requirements have resulted in the application of more stringent environmental criteria. As a result, longestablished procedures and approaches to handling hazardous...
