Page 18 - The remaining part of the Basic Energy Sciences program which I would like to discuss falls under the Basic Research User Facilities (BRUF) appropriation. Within the Basic Energy Sciences program, seven existing major user facilities are included in this new appropriation together with R&D, capital equipment and construction funding for two new facilities under construction.
Page 24 - As a third generation radiation synchrotron source, it will be used by many scientific disciplines to investigate new materials, surfaces, biological molecules, chemical reactions and geological materials. For these studies, the unprecedented quality of the x-ray radiation, including the intensity, coherence and time structure, will certainly provide the US with important new discoveries. The need for this facility has been agreed upon by several organizations, including the National Academy of Sciences...
Page 706 - SLA^ that are required to keep the general plant of the laboratories (eg, buildings, roads and utilities) in good operating condition. BASIC RESEARCH USER FACILITIES--SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (BRUF-SSC) As I noted earlier, experimental research in high energy physics requires the use of large particle accelerators, colliding beam devices and detectors. To extend the research frontier Into a region never before studied and where major breakthroughs in understanding are firmly anticipated, larger,...
Page 139 - BESAC, subcommittees may be formed. The objectives of the subcommittees are to make recommendations to the parent committee with respect to particular matters related to the responsibilities of the parent committee. Ad hoc members from outside BESAC may be appointed by the subcommittee chairperson to ensure the expertise necessary to conduct the subcommittee's business.
Page 17 - FY 1991 is $37.0 million. 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,...
Page 713 - Erie and a second which was deeply buried in the mountains of Japan. The detectors recorded a burst of neutrinos, which is the first time that neutrinos from outside our solar system have been observed. Neutrinos are the most abundant particles in the universe, but scientists know relatively little about their properties. Observation of the 1987 supernova not only provided information on the stability and mass of neutrinos, but also provided a key to the dynamics of the great explosion which marked...
Page 706 - FACILITIES-SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (BRUF-SSC) As I noted earlier, experimental research in high energy physics requires the use of large particle accelerators, colliding beam devices and detectors. To extend the research frontier into a region never before studied and where major breakthroughs in understanding are firmly anticipated, larger, more powerful accelerators are required. Major upgrades of the Stanford Linear Collider at SLAC and the Tevatron Collider at Fermilab will keep the US...

Page 29 - FY 1989, support will be expanded to provide for 450 undergraduate science and engineering students and 36 faculty/student research teams to participate In the program at six labs. This expanded effort provides a year round focus for students and faculty research and education efforts. In FY 1989 the R&D Laboratory Technology Transfer activity will provide joint support to 30 Industry scientists and engineers to work on research assignments at national laboratories side-by-side with DOE's scientists,...
Page 960 - ACt belIeves that the University InstrumentatIon Program under the OffIce of Energy Research (OER) Is underfunded. ThIs subprogram was establIshed to allevIate the pressIng need among DOE researchers for state—of—the-art instrumentation costing over $100,000 each, and to allow graduate students to be trained with sophistIcated research equIpment. It also enables unIversity researchers to employ ‘Innovative' Instrumentation on energy problems.
