Dr Pilat will give a brief introduction to the RHIC project then discuss the particular goals and accomplishments of Run 2001 (involving polarized protons), scheduled for completion by January 24, 2002. The talk will focus on selected "engineering" topics such as the superconducting magnets, the power supplies, radiation levels and damage to materials and components. The presentation will conclude with a review of the overall system reliability and the plans for a bright future.
December 5, 2001- Companions' Night Meeting Location: Weeping Willow Cafe, Farmingdale, NY Topic: SILVERSMITHING Speaker: Brenda Brummett Kirk Human Resources Division, Brookhaven National Laboratory Most metal is as malleable as clay, it just takes a little longer to work. Using the metalsmithing techniques of forging, annealing, soldering, repousse, chasing and reticulation, Brenda Brummett Kirk creates chalices, tea strainers, whistles, coffee and tea services, and jewelry using sterling silver and gold. She will bring with her to the meeting a few tools and work at various stages, and discuss the techniques using in creating these and other art works. Her work has been shown in art museums throughout the United States, and has been in traveling shows in Canada, Mexico and Europe.
November 14, 2001- Sustaining Members Night Location: Weeping Willow Cafe, Farmingdale, NY Speaker: Laura Henderson Lewis Materials Science Department, Brookhaven National Laboratory Subject: From Anarchy to Oligarchy: Structure-Magnetism Connections in Magnetic NanoSystems Magnetic materials are indispensable to modern industrial society. Surprisingly, in our era of advanced technology, the magnetic materials that support society are still largely produced using traditional metallurgical concepts. However, recent advances in the synthesis and characterization of magnetic materials point toward a major improvement in the performance of these materials. Investigating magnetic materials at the atomic level, researchers are discovering that by manipulating the formation of materials at the nanometer level they can produce permanent magnets that are 3 to 4 times stronger than the best existing permanent magnets. This opens the way for scientists to design functional devices comprised of diverse magnetic materials with nanometer dimensions that act in concert to exhibit new, exciting and totally unexplored properties. These developments will be accompanied by reductions in the size, weight and energy consumption of machines and devices incorporating these new magnetic materials, resulting in savings of energy and, by extension, greenhouse gas production.
October 17, 2001- Advertisers' Night Meeting Location: Weeping Willow Café, Farmingdale, NY Networking Event: Our first technical meeting for the Chapter Year 2001-2002 and a first time ever event for the Chapter. This is our way of thanking the advertisers for the support they provide, which helps to offset the costs of putting together and distributing the Metallagram. Please come along to the Weeping Willow to meet them in person. The general economy is not at its strongest at this point in time and they would welcome the chance to discuss present and future needs. The event will be of an informal nature (this is not a mini trade show, let alone a full-blown exposition!) so you can take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere to establish some focused information and useful future contacts. At the time of writing, confirmations of attendance have been received from Buehler, Long Island Testing Labs., Struers, and Unitron. So come out and join us, renew old acquaintances and meet new ones.
September 30, 2001 Location: Bidwell Vineyards, Cutchogue, NY Event: Wine Tasting/ Buffet Dinner/ Facility Tour The first event of the 2001-2002 Chapter year will be held on S unday, September 30, 2001, on the North Fork of Long Island. In a change from the past, this year we will meet at the Bidwell Vineyards, situated on Rt. 48 in Cutchogue, at 1:30 pm. After the tour and sampling their wares, there will be a break to let you check up on other attractions in the area (fruit and vegetable stands, antique stores, etc.). We will reconvene at 4.30 pm at the Corey Creek Vineyards (about 18 miles east of Riverhead on Rt. 25, on the right (south) side, in Southold) for a private wine tasting hosted by Bedell Cellars of Cutchogue (their own facility is under renovation). In addition to the tasting, we have arranged for a buffet dinner, after which we will raffle off a few bottles of the local products. Come out and join us, renew old acquaintances and meet new ones. We hope to enjoy our usual good fortune with the weather but, just in case, there are arrangements to move the dinner indoors if necessary.
