    Properties of liquid metals (Li, Pb, Na) containing nanoscale cavities were studied by atomistic Molecular Dynamics (MD). Two atomistic models of cavity simulation were developed that cover a wide area in the phase diagram ...
  • Norem, J.; Hassanein, A.; Insepov, Z.; Konkashbaev, I. (Proceedings of 2005 Particle Accelerator Conference, Knoxville, Tennessee, 2005)
    We present a simple model of breakdown in rf cavities. For most events this involves tensile stress and tensile strength, however other effects can also contribute. We discuss the effects of different materials, fatigue, ...
  • Ainabayev, A.; Berdenova, B.; Norem, J.; Insepov, Z. (arXiv preprint arXiv:1410.6501, 2014)
    Comsol finite element technique was applied to study heating and cooling of a microspot on the cathode surface. The reasons why there seems to be no common model for vacuum arcs, in spite of the importance of this field ...
  • Insepov, Z.; Norem, J. (J. Vac. Sci. Technol, 2013)
    We argue that the physics of unipolar arcs and surface cracks can help understand rf breakdown, and vacuum arc data. We outline a model of the basic mechanisms involved in breakdown and explore how the physics of unipolar ...
  • Adams, B.; Insepov, Z.; Ivanov, V.; Norem, J. (Proceedings of IPAC2012, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2012)
    High-performance detectors with high spatial and time resolutions are required in applications such as imaging of fast processes, time-resolved coherent scattering, and time-resolved X-ray spectroscopy. Recently a new type ...
  • Insepov, Z.; Norem, J.; Veitzer, S. (American Institute of Physics, 2011-06)
    Ion solid interactions have been shown to be an important new mechanism of unipolar arc formation in high-gradient rf linear accelerators through surface self-sputtering by plasma ions, in addition to an intense surface ...
  • Insepov, Z.; Yun, D.; Ye, B.; Rest, J.; Starikov, S.; Yacout, A. M. (American Institute of Physics, 2011-06)
    Radiation defects generated in Mo formed by sub-MeV Xe ion implantations were studied by atomistic molecular dynamics based on interatomic potential matched to density functional calculations. The results of the simulations ...
  • Insepov, Z.; Rest, J.; Hofman, G. L.; Yacout, A.; Norman, G. E.; Starikov, S. A.; Stegailov, V. V. (Transactions of the American Nuclear Society, 2010)
    A key issue for fuel behavior codes is their sensitivity to values of various materials properties, many of which have large uncertainties or have not been measured. Kinetic mesoscale models, such as those developed at ...
  • Norem, J.; Insepov, Z.; Huang, D.; Mahalingam, S.; Veitzer, S. (American Institute of Physics, 2010-03)
    We describe breakdown in rf accelerator cavities in terms of a number of mechanisms. We divide the breakdown process into three stages: 1) we model surface failure using molecular dynamics of fracture caused by electrostatic ...
  • Yonehara, K.; Chung, M.; Popovic, M.; Moretti, A.; Wang, H.; Alsharo'a, M.; Insepov, Z. (Fermilab, 2010)
    A high pressure hydrogen gas filled RF cavity has been proposed for use in the muon collection system for a muon collider. It allows for high electric field gradients in RF cavities located in strong magnetic fields, a ...

    Studies of low frequency RF systems for muon cooling has led to a variety of new techniques for looking at dark currents, a new model of breakdown, and, ultimately, a model of RF cavity operation based on surface damage. ...
