ENERGY -- Dielectric flow . . .

With todays unprecedented demands for poweras demonstrated by this summers Southern heat wavesuperconducting technology promises to turn on an electricity faucet and expand the current capacity of the nations power grid. Key to that transition, is development of new and improved insulating materials, or dielectrics, to keep the flow of power in check. ORNL researchers are developing new designer materials and manufacturing processes that will offer improvements over todays dielectrics, used to prevent power surges and offer protection at high voltage generation and transmission sites. In a recent paper published by the Institute of Physics, Enis Tuncer of the Applied Superconductivity Group in ORNLs Fusion Energy Division describes a new technique he developed for manufacture of a nanocomposite material that holds promise in cryogenic high voltage applications. The project is supported through Laboratory Directed Research and Development funding. [Contact: Larisa Brass, (865) 574-4163; brasslm@ornl.gov]
