    The massive blackout of November 9-10 has triggered some prompt and expeditious action, spearheaded by the Federal Power Commission's list of 19 affirmative recommendations that should be implemented by the utilities to preclude the possibility of a recurrence. These proposals include the need for fully coordinated power pools, more extensive stability studies for the operation of interconnected systems, the need for mixed generation facilities for quicker response to power swings, and a review of the adequacy of existing automated equipment.

  • New horizons in semimetal alloys

    A small number of free carriers, a small cyclotron mass, a very high mobility at superconducting temperatures├é┬┐these are among the properties that make bismuth, along with its alloys, the subject of intensive research efforts. The ``cleanness'' of these materials, for example, makes them ideal for new kinds of plasma experiments in solids. Results so far could be described as intriguing to the scientist and promising to the engineer. View full abstract»

  • International developments in controlled thermonuclear fusion

    Basic processes and fundamental technological requirements of controlled thermonuclear fusion have been widely discussed. Briefly, they include: heating an ultrapure, low-density deuterium and tritium plasma to superhigh temperatures; stably containing the extreme temperature plasma by magnetic fields for a duration adequate to fuse the nuclei; diminishing particle losses occurring through diffusion and instabilities to acceptable levels; gaining useful fusion products conveying energy sufficiently in excess of thermal and radiant energy losses; and, finally, converting the energy released to useful electric power. Recent progress has been encouraging. Numerous and diverse plasmas have been produced and improved understanding and experimental confirmation of stable magnetic containment have been obtained. Also, increased plasma density, temperature, and containment times in a few experimental systems have been achieved. However, complex difficulties, such as new types of instabilities, raise formidable barriers to a workable reactor concept. View full abstract»
