[en] The Government of Canada has agreed to the conduct of trials in Canada that will take into account the wider political awareness of the IAEA and the responsibilities of the State under comprehensive Safeguards Agreements. The trials will examine the concepts of openness and transparency as a means to permit the IAEA to fulfill its responsibilities under Article 2 of NPT type Safeguards Agreements, and to do so in the most cost effective manner. Recently available technologies will also be tested. Extensive discussions with the IAEA on the details of the trials are envisaged. The paper presents a number of views on the nature of an open and transparent approach to safeguards and on the content of the trials. (author)
[en] This work shows a simple, single-stage, scalable method for the continuous production of high-quality carbon nanotube-polymer transparent conductive films from carbon feedstock. Besides the ease of scalability, a particular advantage of this process is that the concentration of nanotubes in the films, and thus transparency and conductivity, can be adjusted by changing simple process parameters. Therefore, films can be readily prepared for any application desired, ranging from solar cells to flat panel displays. Our best results show a surface resistivity of the order of 300 Ω square-1 for a film with 80% transparency, which is promising at this early stage of process development.
