Page 1633 - The maintenance of modern nuclear laboratory facilities and programs in theoretical and exploratory nuclear technology which will attract, retain, and insure the continued application of our human scientific resources to these programs on which continued progress in nuclear technology depends.
Page 869 - grand unified" framework may be possible, thus reducing the apparent number of forces in nature to two. The ultimate goal is a "super-grand" unification that would bring all of the forces in nature into a single unified framework.
Page 1539 - a defense activity of the Department of Energy, administered by the Assistant Secretary of Energy for Defense Programs for the express purpose of providing a research and development facility to demonstrate the safe disposal of radioactive wastes resulting from the defense activities and programs of the United States exempted from regulation by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Page 1456 - Secretary shall complete a detailed study of the need for and feasibility of, and shall submit to the Congress a proposal for, the construction of one or more monitored retrievable storage facilities for high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel.
Page 1405 - In 1988, several laboratories working on heat source efforts will start production activities for the DIPS flight program. DOE will also continue those efforts necessary to improve heat source safety, improve production efficiency to reduce heat source costs, and continue work in long-lead areas. Included is the redesign and design verification of changes to the GPHS-RTG to improve safety and performance for future missions.
Page 1375 - Nation's nuclear nonproliferation efforts through our involvement in the nuclear fuel cycle. Finally, important national security objectives are supported by the availability of a safe, dependable supply of highly enriched uranium at reasonable costs for US naval forces and other defense programs.
Page 892 - ... to cover the entire radiation range needed for experiments supported by the BES program. The 1-2 GeV project is a third generation light source in the vacuum ultra violet/soft x-ray range. The unique capabilities of this facility will make possible new basic and applied science studies in such areas as materials and surface science, atomic and molecular physics, chemistry, and biology. The FY 1991 request includes $23.0 million for this project.
Page 935 - Environmental Compliance subprogram. The subprogram originated in FY 1985 to address non-defense environmental deficiencies at ORNL. Since the early 1940's, ORNL has generated a variety of radioactive and nonradioactive pollutants which were handled in accordance with environmental regulations existing at that time. Since then, a number of new regulatory requirements have resulted in the application of more stringent environmental criteria. This subprogram will help bring all past and present systems...
Page 867 - FY 1987 budget request for several of the programs supported by the Office of Energy Research (ER). These programs are: High Energy and Nuclear Physics, Basic Energy Sciences, Magnetic Fusion Energy, Biological and Environmental Research, Energy Research Analysis, University Research Support, University Research Instrumentation, and Mult iprogram Energy Laboratories-Facilities Support.
Page 869 - ... radiation detectors. Although it was developed for physics experiments, it can be used in medical and nuclear electronics and in nuclear instrumentation for oil and gas exploration. In October 1986, BNL received a prestigious IR-100 award from Research and Development magazine designating this device as one of the 100 most significant new technical products of the previous year.
