Title:
High Current Cold Cathode Employing Diamond and Related Materials
Summary:
Vacuum electronics devices used to power particle accelerators for discovery science and industrial applications, but also television transmitters and radar tubes, almost always employ thermionic cathodes, having limited current capability and requiring ancillary heating power. This project will develop cold cathodes that appear to offer higher current density, without need for heating power, thus improving device performance with lower operating cost.

Title:
High-Gradient Two-Beam Electron Accelerator
Summary:
A high-energy electron-positron collider is believed by members of the scientific community to be one of the next "big science" projects requiring intellectual and financial support from governments on an international scale. Technical improvements in this project have the potential to reduce the cost and complexity of a future collider, thus making it more appealing to those responsible government bodies.

Title:
Modified Magnicon For High-Gradient Accelerator R&D
Summary:
This project will improve performance for the unique millimeter wave amplifier that is a key element in an R&D program towards developing a future high-gradient particle accelerator will broaden the scope of research that can be accomplished. This work could help position U.S. science to play a more dominant role in future large international research projects, and could introduce new technology for the U.S. microwave tube industry to make their products more competitive.

Title:
Short-Period RF Undulator for a SASE Nanometer Source
Summary:
A compact microwave-driven device will be developed that will cause an energetic electron beam to wobble as it travels along. This can be the basis for a source of short wavelength light for research and medical applications that would be smaller and less expensive than otherwise possible.

Title:
Downhole Oxyfuel Steam/CO2 Generator for Production of Gas from Hydrates
Summary:
This project will demonstrate a novel oxyfuel downhole steam generator aimed at providing an enabling tool to efficiently recover gas from methane hydrate deposits and simultaneously reduce emissions with potential CO2 sequestration. Success will lead to commercialization of a downhole combustor for natural gas production.
