  • Highlights

    The activity in accelerator development for accelerator-based BNCT (AB-BNCT) both worldwide and in Argentina is described.

    Projects in Russia, UK, Italy, Japan, Israel, and Argentina to develop AB-BNCT around different types of accelerators are briefly presented.

    The present status and recent progress of the Argentine project will be reviewed.

    Topics cover intense ion sources, accelerator tubes, transport of intense beams and beam diagnostics, among others.
    Abstract
    The activity in accelerator development for accelerator-based BNCT (AB-BNCT) both worldwide and in Argentina is described. Projects in Russia, UK, Italy, Japan, Israel, and Argentina to develop AB-BNCT around different types of accelerators are briefly presented. In particular, the present status and recent progress of the Argentine project will be reviewed. The topics will cover: intense ion sources, accelerator tubes, transport of intense beams, beam diagnostics, the 9Be(d,n) reaction as a possible neutron source, Beam Shaping Assemblies (BSA), a treatment room, and treatment planning in realistic cases.

  • Neutron capture therapy (NCT) is a noninvasive therapeutic modality for treating locally invasive malignant tumors such as primary brain tumors and recurrent head and neck cancer

    Critical review, with an optimistic outlook, on Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT)

    BNCT was first used over 60 years ago, but is still not part of mainstream medicine.

    Results of recent clinical trials in BNCT are encouraging.

    The use of nuclear reactors for BNCT is waning whilst the use of linear accelerators is just starting.

    All these factors give rise to fresh hope in BNCT.

  • cali , I saw this-this morning was going to post it but got pulled away. it may be several months later but they will probably be producing both phones simultaneously, so bottom line, sapphire will cover all with no delay BY GTAT.

    theflyonthewallcom: Apple to release iPhones at different times to avoid competition, DigiTimes say
    Apple's new 5.5-inch iPhone is expected to come several month after its new 4.7-inch model to avoid competition between the two models, reports DigiTimes. According to sources in the iPhone supply chain, the move is not due to poor yield rates at 5.5-inch production lines.

  • Plansee makes reusable crucibles from Tungsten and molybdenum GTAT has certified them...
    So my thinking is they would be using them in Mesa Az.....

  • I think declaring a cure for cancer is a little premature, no?

  • Formed tungsten and molybdenum crucibles perform extremely well in Heat Exchanger Method (HEM) process and are suitable for melting and solidifying of single crystals. Formed crucibles from Plansee have thin walls and exhibit superior creep resistance.

    Pressed-sintered crucibles from PLANSEE are mainly used in the Kyropolous process for the production of sapphire. When sapphire is easily extracted, better yield and improved quality of sapphire can be realized. p tungsten and molybdenum-based crucibles are heat-resistant and feature a smooth surface, which make them durable and cost-effective. They are also resistant to corrosion and have a high material density.

    Plansee's pressed-sintered crucibles are made from tungsten or molybdenum and have a surface roughness of below 0.8 µm. when the crucible’s surface is rough, the sapphire cannot be easily extracted and this tends to damage the crystal. Besides, the crucible also gets damaged in the process. The ultra-smooth crucibles from Plansee eliminate these issues. Sapphire manufacturers can benefit from this product as it eliminates complex and costly processes. In addition, the smooth surface is resistant to corrosion induced by the aggressive melted sapphire. This feature extends the life of the reusable tungsten crucibles.

  • Plansee builds crucibles...

    Tungsten and molybdenum crucibles:
    Thin wall. High performance.
    Formed molybdenum and tungsten crucibles excel in the so-called HEM process (Heat Exchanger Method). They are the perfect vessels for melting and solidifying the single crystal. Our formed crucibles have particularly thin walls combined with excellent creep resistance. The outstanding purity of our material prevents any contamination of the single crystal. Even the most aggressive sapphire melts cannot do any harm to our materials.

    We produce large numbers of formed molybdenum and tungsten crucibles which we can supply in all commonly used dimensions. They are successfully used by all the major manufacturers and numerous end customers worldwide. We produce the input material for our crucibles ourselves in our in-house hot rolling mill for refractory metals. This is where we manufacture the world's largest molybdenum and tungsten sheets which will enable us to continue producing very large dimensions in the future.

    Trouble-free production.
    With quality certification.
    GT Advanced Technologies is one of the world's leading suppliers of systems for the growth of sapphire and silicon single crystals which are used, among other applications, in the solar and LED industries. GT Advanced Technologies has certified our formed crucibles for use in its Advanced Sapphire Furnaces (ASF).

  • not surprisingly, back up to 46.3M from 41.3M.

  • .............the stock would be shooting up 10-20-30 ++ points daily............yet GTAT simply trades for pennies daily??????? Sapphire...........Cancer cure...........solar leader................LED major player..............
    Oh yawn.....................it's only GTAT!!!!!!!!!!

  • Future and outlook will be very strong, See $28 to 30 by end of 2014

  • Correct me if I'm wrong. Doesn't GTAT have reusable crucibles?

  • Yes, we all know about the earning, but my main focus will be all about the guidance, the CC on Tue morning premarket

    Question about ion implantation

    by sawnleeter 18 hours ago

    Additional items Apple patent covers anti-microbial coating:

    Apple also notes that "Another advantage associated with the use of silver nano-particles is their utility in providing an anti-microbial coating to a device."

    The silver nano-particles can be applied to an outer surface of a device in a number of ways including spin coating, printing, and ion implantation. Finally, in another embodiment the pigment nano-particles can be used to coat a transparent structure such as glass, plastic or sapphire, to create a color filter. Opacity of the filter can be adjusted based on a particle density of the nano-particles.

    As far as strength... Sapphire is more scratch resistant than GG.
    Apple also has a patent that makes sapphire laminates stronger and more shock resistant.

    The use of a sapphire outer surface with a glass inner surface for the display may be used in future iDevices where the two sapphire surfaces are laminated together with the glass providing support for the display and the sapphire providing scratch resistance and durability advantages.

  • I can't find an applicable definition for "shrive". What does it mean in the sentence, or is it a typo?

    Yes, you are well loved at yahoo.
    But look at the bright side.

    Question about ion implantation

    by sawnleeter 18 hours ago

    GG is about 0.08 mm thin...the new Apple iPhone 6 sapphire laminate screen is about 1 mm thin.
    As fas as weight Apple uses glass as the inner portion and sapphire on front and back to lighten the weight.
    The density of Gorilla Glass is 2.54 g/cm3 while sapphire is 3.98 g/cm3. So sapphire is roughly 1.5x heavier than Gorilla glass......however a sapphire laminate will narrow the difference.

    The refractive index of sapphire crystal is 1.76 compared with 1.5 for Gorilla glass - which means there is a small trade-off between light transmission.

    As far as battery life Sapphire dielectric constant of 9.39 is 29% greater than Gorilla Glass of 7.23.
    This allows Apple to use in-cell technology, which allows the screens to be thinner and lighter by integrating touch sensors into the liquid crystal display and making it unnecessary to have a separate touch-screen layer.
    So there is a cost savings and space saving here due to the above design.

    The advent of sapphire Apple's device assembly will result in a significantly better touch screen as well as
    """"reducing power consumption.""""

    Apple-GTAT patents and large scale production and processing of sapphire laminates has several advantages over GG.

    Thus making it worth a premium price over GG for Apple.

    Tbd if Samsung , LG and others will follow in 18 months or so....
