Field testing of recoverable test units at
Sandia is a little easier and a little less ex¬
pensive these days. Dave Ryerson and Gene
Hauser of Instrumentation Development
Division 5336 have developed a simple and
inexpensive device that eliminates the need
for radiofrequency telemetry in experi¬
ments with recoverable test units.
Called SDACS (for stored data acquisi¬
tion system), the device stores the test data
in its memory and then reads the data out
when interrogated upon recovery. It re¬
quires no ground support during test opera¬
tions and only limited support (a device
with a commonly available RS-232 serial
interface) for readout after the test.
SDACS is finding applications in test pro¬
grams for parachutes, sea floor penetra-
tors, balloon instrumentation, a study of
B52 bomb bay temperatures, an Army
parachute heavy equipment delivery
system, and the Navy’s Advanced Light
“The torpedo program illustrates the
full capabilities of SDACS,” Dave says.
“The test sequence uses three different
operational modes and data sampling rates.

Two new kinds of fiberoptic gauges — a
strain gauge and a pressure gauge — are
being designed and tested by Jon Weiss and
Jim Stoever of Field Measurements Divi¬
sion 7116. Both gauges are sensors that
detect changes in light intensity.
Optical fibers are long strands of light-
transmitting glass about the thickness of a
human hair. They consist of a core of glass
clad with a material of lower refractive in¬
dex. Light inside the core is guided by total
internal reflection. Some loss of light
around bends always occurs. It’s this bend
radiation that is the basis of the gauges de¬
veloped by Jon and Jim.
Both of these new fiberoptic gauges are
being developed primarily to measure
strains and pressures near other instru¬
ments during nuclear weapons tests at
Nevada Test Site. Interference from the in¬
tense electromagnetic radiation such blasts
produce often renders standard electrical
gauges and copper cabling useless during
the key measurement period. But the new
optical gauges are unaffected.
“In regard to bend radiation, if the op¬
tical fiber has only gentle curves along its
length, very little light leaks from the core,
but if the fiber is bent severely — for in¬
stance, into the shape of a ‘U’ a quarter of
an inch wide — many of the light rays strike
the core/cladding interface in the bend
region at too high an angle to be totally re¬
flected internally, while other light rays ex¬
perience loss around the bend through a
more subtle process known as tunneling.
Thus, much of the light escapes.”
Jon’s strain gauge is based on the modu¬
lation of this light loss from a bend. In a
tightly bent “U,” the amount of light loss
varies measurably when the degree of
bending changes even slightly due to strain
on the surface that the optical fiber is fixed
The process of fabricating the strain
gauge is begun by Clint Tuthill of Glass
Formulation and Fabrication Section 7472.
He pulls the fiber from a rod of glass and
then heats it so that the fiber can be bent to
the desired degree. “We then epoxy the U-
shaped fiber to the surface that is to be mea¬
sured,” says Jim. “The epoxy doubles as
the cladding material.”
Any deformation of the surface will

Ethereal vs. Mundane —As I write this, I’m also watching a flock of
errant hot-air balloons from the Balloon Fiesta drift slowly south
across the parade ground and Tech Area I. For me, at least, they're
almost hypnotic: an elemental shape—an inverted teardrop, propelled
horizontally by one elemental force—wind, and kept aloft by a
classical element—fire. They're large, slow, and majestic
they're probably the most natural means by which to give ourselves
a natural thrill—that of looking down at our natural habitat fro
above—no engines, no dependence on the complexities of aerodynamic
lift, not much noise, moving in three dimensions not by overcoming
gravity and friction and inertia by brute force but by, literally,
going with the flow.
So they appeal to the primitive in us—our cave-dwelling ancestors
could have understood balloons. It's the same appeal that other
elemental sports (sailing, skiing, surfing, sky-diving, hang¬
Yes, hot-air balloons are absolutely impractical as a means of
transportation--but that too is part of their appeal. It's some¬
how refreshing to judge the value of something on considerations
other than practicality, efficiency, utility.
Oh, for an ethereal (literally, relating to the regions beyond
the earth, those once thought to be filled with ether) balloon
to lift me above this mundane (from the Latin for world) desk.'

the question of whether or not his invitation should be accepted.
I'll have to be the pouncer to point to his "We . . . will be

® Botany was thought to be a suitable study
for young women in schools and an ama¬
teur avocation in the 19th century. A sur¬
prisingly large number of American
women identified themselves as being seriously inter¬
ested in botany. For example, in the first published di¬
rectory of American botanists in 1873,13 percent of the
599 names are women’s and that increased to 16 per¬
cent of the 982 names in 1878 .... Though few
American women became professional botanists in the
19th century, they constitute an important overlooked
constituency for the developing profession of botany.

Toys Out of the Attic
Aficionados of Automotive Antiques
THE OLD SAYING “The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys” doesn’t apply to
Ken Campbell (7541) and his collection of old vehicles, unless you count the big truck in the back.
Achieving adulthood didn’t destroy Ken
Campbell’s (7541) fascination with the toys
of his youth. With the enthusiastic as¬
sistance of his sons, Eric, 15, and Robin, 13,
he’s filled shelves in almost every room of
their home with toy trucks, cars, and
scaled-down replicas of construction equip¬
ment, most of them made in the 1940s and
’50s (before Tonka began to dominate the
industry). And they have to keep building
new shelves. A recent trip to a major toy
show in Gettysburg, Pa., produced about
100 additions to the collection. That puts the
total number at 443.
The toys range in size from palm-of-the-
hand miniatures to knee-high monsters.
There are dump trucks (46 of them) and
semis (88 of those), most painted in bright
oranges, yellows, or reds — drab colors
didn’t sell. Ken says he would be hard
pressed to pick a favorite, but Eric insists
his dad is partial to a hard-to-find, red
Smith-Miller dump truck dating back to
sometime between 1948 and ’53.
A vacation back home in Harrisburg,
Pa., three years ago sparked the Camp¬
bells’ interest in collecting old toy trucks.
They retrieved Ken’s childhood collection
and decided it would be fun to replace the
pieces that had been lost over the years.
They started their search at flea markets.
Soon they were subscribing to collector’s
magazines, and the hobby moved like a
Mack down Monarch Pass. They went to
their first big toy show a year ago last
February in Phoenix, an event they’d like to
attend again next year.
Sometimes Ken and his sons find the old
toys in mint condition. Other times a well-
worn model is all that’s available. Then Ken
heads out to the garage to restore it. The re¬
finishing process involves stripping, sand¬
blasting, priming, and, occasionally, craft¬
ing new parts. Ken has started doing the re¬
painting with an airbrush so he can mix his
own colors and do more detailed work. If
possible, he prefers to pay more for an item
in good condition than to have to truck with
The oldest toy in the collection is a cast-
iron truck from the 1920s that belonged to
Ken’s father. The most valuable is that
favorite Smith-Miller dump truck. It cost
$9.95 new and is now worth $120. The collec¬
tion also includes all but one of the pieces in
the old Caterpillar series and an ever¬
growing group of Winross limited editions
— tractor-trailer rigs with sponsoring com¬
panies’ logos on the sides, which Eric adds
to every month. The Campbells also gather
as much of the original literature about
their trucks as they can.
With most serious old toy truck collec¬
tors and dealers in the East or on the West
Coast, Ken and his sons may be building one
of the largest collections in New Mexico.
However, it will be some time before their
collection compares to that of their friend in
Chicago, who has over 30,000 toy trucks fill¬
ing his basement. “I think he buys trucks by
the truckload,” sighs Ken.

Fiberoptic First at NTS
slightly — if imperceptibly to the naked eye
— open or close the “U.” Light passing
through the fiber will be lost to either a
lesser or greater degree as a result. The re¬
maining light is transmitted through the
fiber to an optical detector at some other
location. There the modulation of the bend
radiation is translated into a measurement
of strain, which is a fractional change in
distance between two points on a surface.
Says Jim: “At this stage, we can detect
strains of 10 parts per million.”
The fiberoptic high-pressure gauge
works -on a slightly different principle. In
this case, the radius of the fiber bend re¬
mains fixed. A bare glass fiber is placed
within an optical fluid — any of various
kinds of oils. Optically, this fluid replaces
the normal cladding material.
Under normal pressure, the fluid’s index
of refraction is considerably less than that
of the glass. Under added pressure, the fluid
is compressed and its index of refraction in¬
creases, permitting more light to leak out at
“Increased pressure causes greater
light loss,” says Jonathan. “Some of this
loss can be translated into a measurement
Fiberoptic gauges do have one draw¬
back: a nuclear device produces gamma
rays that cause luminescence in the fiber
for as long as the gamma ray pulse lasts.
The fiber then rapidly darkens. Recovery
time from darkening varies from milli¬
seconds to hours depending on the impurity
content of the fiber and the temperature.
“There’s no way luminescence and sub¬
sequent darkening are going to be avoided
without extensive shielding,” says Jon.
“But in the lab we’ve developed fiberoptic-
based sensors, or transducers, that
measure strain and high pressure in compo¬
nents subject to radiation. With the appro¬
priate choice of fiber material for both the
gauge and the leads, contamination of the
data can be avoided during the most critical
Both fiberoptic gauges will undergo field
tests during Midas Myth, an underground
nuclear test scheduled for February 1984 at
Adds Jon: “Although we’ve designed
these gauges specifically for the U.S.
nuclear weapons test program, the gauge
designs should also prove useful in geo¬
physical or industrial application where an
alternative to electrical gauges is needed.

[ Robert Goddard) is only professing to be
ignorant of elementary physics if he thinks
that a rocket can work in a vacuum.” (Edi¬

Cultural A wareness Colloquia
Speak Oct. 27
“Anglo-American Culture in New Mex¬
ico” is the topic of the second in the series of
cultural awareness colloquia sponsored by
Dept. 3510. It’s presented by a speaker with
all the credentials — Marc Simmons.
Simmons is a historian, author, column¬
ist, and translator who has been associated
with southwestern history for over 20 years.
His writing and research have focused on
the tricultural heritage of New Mexico.
Among his twelve books and mono¬
graphs are Southwestern Colonial Iron¬
works; New Mexico, A History (winner of
1977 History Award from Border Regional
Library Association) ; Spanish Government
in New Mexico; Witchcraft in the South¬
west; People of the Sun; and his most re¬
cent, Albuquerque, A Narrative History
(winner of 1983 Western Writers of America
“Golden Spur” award for best non-fiction
book on the West; a plug here — it’s on sale
at LAB NEWS office for $17.50).
Of his colloquium topic, Simmons says:
During the long territorial period
(statehood was not achieved until
1912), New Mexico retained much of
the atmosphere of the Wild West.
Only with the great influx of new¬
comers during World War II and the
subsequent flowering of scientific
research did the state, as part of the
newly self-conscious Sunbelt, enter
the mainstream of American life.

but the talk should be a provocative one. It’s

Sandian Named General In National Guard
George Treadwell (6221) was promoter
recently to the rank of brigadier general in
the New Mexico Army National Guard. He
also became commander of the 111th Air
Defense Artillery Brigade with units com¬

George joined the National Guard in 1948
in Wisconsin where he attended Marquette
University. He joined Sandia with a
mechanical engineering degree in 1953 and
transferred to the New Mexico National
guard with the rank of second lieutenant.
Promotions came regularly through the
years as George performed various duties
and attended service schools, including the
Army War College.
He has served as platoon leader, battery
commander, engineering officer, supply of¬
ficer, intelligence officer, communications
officer, commander of a maintenance bat¬
talion, and deputy commander of the 111th

years ago, she dis¬
covered she was wrong,
that being male was not a prerequisite for
barbershop singing; and she was delighted
to become a member of the Enchanted
Mesa Chapter of Sweet Adelines.
Along with jazz, barbershop music is a
truly American musical form. Barbershop
singing evolved many years ago when, with
few forms of entertainment easily avail¬
able, family and guests gathered in the par¬
lor to sing, often with no instrumental
accompaniment. Because the singers were
usually untrained, the melodies had to be
simple and the harmonies complementary
and easy to improvise. The result was a
vibrant four-part harmony sound.
This simple, informal style of entertain¬
ment has developed into a very strict
musical form with only certain chords and
chord progressions allowed. It also differs
from the traditional soprano-alto-tenor-
bass musical form in that the melody is not
on the top of the chord, but in the middle.
And, yes, women do sing the tenor, lead

Employee Concert Party last week. Clockwise from top: President Dacey tells the crowd how he became
“the ruler of the ECP,” a parody on a Gilbert & Sullivan ditty. Allison Davis (1813) showed why she has lead
roles with ACLOA, and Don Marchi (2512) made memorable magic. Mary Rodriguez (3412) added a Near
Eastern flavor to the festivities. Ken Miller (400) picked and plucked his way to ECP glory. Gene Ives (5130)
sang “The Impossible Dream” — which is not the slogan of the ECP goal-setters. And “Roberta" Lassiter
(5268) noted that Sandia has “a president who can carry a tune, and a staff that can put things on the moon.”
Thanks from all of us to Ellen Cronin, John Gardner, Plant Engineering, Motion Picture-Video Services and all
the others who helped. And a special thanks to all the entertainers — you were great!

Me dical Corner
Wellness — Sandia Style
By Susan Harris (3330)
Oct. 17-21 — Urban Open Spaces Exhibit
from the Smithsonian, Main Library,
Our story thus far: Wellness is an atti¬
tude — a positive approach to health. It is
taking responsibility for our own health and
maximizing our well-being, rather than
relying exclusively on therapy to make us
well once we’re ill. Wellness seeks to pro¬
mote life-style choices that enhance the
quality of life.
Preventive medicine, health promotion,
wellness programs — call it what you will —
all seek to reduce the most common causes
of premature death and illness. The big kill¬
ers today are the so-called life-style dis¬
eases, such as heart disease and lung can¬
cer, and motor vehicle accidents.
The causes of these killers and their un¬
derlying risk factors are known — smoking,
high cholesterol, high blood pressure, se¬
dentary life-style, obesity, a high-fat diet,
alcohol and drug abuse, stress, careless
driving, and failure to use seat belts. Every
one of these risks involves a life-style
choice, and most are controllable. That fact
lies at the heart of disease prevention,
health promotion, and ultimately, wellness.
How is Sandia Medical helping em¬
ployees reduce these risks and achieve the
goal of wellness? The primary program is
the periodical physical examination. More
than 98 percent of you volunteer for these.
During the second half of each exam, you
discuss Medical’s findings about your
health with a doctor or nurse practitioner.
You learn about habits that are harmful to
your health, and you are encouraged to
make the changes that would allow you to
live longer — and better.
In addition, the Medical Department of¬
fers a number of programs encouraging
life-style changes that have a high proba¬
bility of improving your health: smoking
cessation, blood pressure education and
control, alcohol and drug abuse treatment,
nutritional counseling, exercise counseling,
and stress management classes. These pro¬
grams can help you reduce the risk factors
that contribute to illness or premature
If you’re a do-it-yourself type, Medical
has printed and audiovisual materials to
tell you how to progress toward wellness.
Pamphlets such as “Want to Be Healthier
and Live Longer?” and a three-part film
series on positive approaches to well-being
are available. And the Tech Library has a
number of books related to health available
for check-out. The Library also has video¬
tape of a colloquium, “How is Your Health
and Wellness?” Curl up with a good video¬
tape sometime and live longer as a result!
The final question you should ask your¬
self is: Will I live my life in a way that en¬
hances my health, rather than a way that
diminishes it? Sandia Medical wants to help
you choose health and a high level of “well¬

HERMAN ROSER, DOE'S assistant secretary for defense programs, tosses a spadeful of dirt to break
ground for Sandia's $39 million Simulation Technology Laboratory in Area IV. The facility is designed es¬
pecially for testing nuclear weapon systems for vulnerability and survivability within intense radiation environ¬
ments. Work at the STL will center on simulating the x-ray gamma radiation that would result from nuclear de¬
vices detonated as countermeasures. Other shovelers (from left): Col. David Scott, commander, 1606th Air
Base Wing, KAFB; former US senator Harrison Schmitt; George Dacey, Sandia president: Rusty Shafer, the
STL’s principal architect; and Ray Romatowski, manager of DOE's Albuquerque Operations Office. The facil¬
ity is scheduled for completion during the summer of 1985.
A conference entitled “Energy, Environ¬
ment, and the Economy in the Southwest”
takes place at the Hilton on Oct. 27-29. Spon¬
sored by Americans for Rational Energy
Alternatives, the conference will address
such issues as how energy and growth af¬
fect jobs, the environment, and business
conditions in the Southwest ; whether the US
has abandoned its commitment to develop
its coal, oil, gas, and shale resources; the
future of nuclear energy; the risks of inter¬
national military conflict resulting from the
US energy situation; how “no-growth”
philosophies affect the political process;
and whether legislative and regulatory
decisions affect the ability of utilities to
meet future energy needs. Conference fee is
$125. For more information, write Ms. Pat
Wainwright, AREA Executive Director,
Box 11802, Albuquerque, 87192.

A one-day Energy Information Ex¬
change is set for Oct. 21 at the Sheraton Old

by the NM Energy Publications Council and
funded by the NM Energy Research and De¬
velopment Institute. The conference is de¬
signed to give energy information pro¬
ducers, disseminators, and users a chance
to exchange ideas, report current activities,
assess future info needs, and plan methods
to transfer info to NM citizens. Nine presen¬
tations and five workshops are planned. The
$20 registration fee includes a luncheon.

Allison Davis (1813) has a lead role in
Civic Light Opera’s production of The Fan-
tasticks. Unlike the genre of musicals that

tens of sets, the show is a bittersweet but

played twice a night for 23 years in New
York. The show runs tonight through Sun¬
day at Albuquerque Little Theatre with Fri¬
day and Saturday tickets $8.50 and Sunday
tickets $7.50 ($1 discount for ACLOA and
ALT season ticketholders). Curtain at 8,
Sundays at 2.

Favorite Old Photo
This photograph of a group of rather dash¬
ing young men was taken about 1903 in Dus-
seldorf, Germany. That’s my father, Oreste
Sr., at the far left. They were 10 Italian
marble masons who had left northern Italy
to find work in Germany. After three years
of saving his money, Dad went back to Italy
to marry my mother Edina. Later they emi¬
grated to the United States and to Utah
where I was born. They operated an Italian
market for many years. I’ll be tracing the
family tree when I visit Italy next year. —

the Club office. Most dates are still open,
and the Club offers a variety of party pack¬
ages. First come, first served.
TRAVEL — The Club announces two
new trips as travel suggestions during the

Vegas by bus Dec. 26-29 and stay at the Las

$310 double occupancy. The package in¬
cludes air fare, transfers, lodging, and ad¬
mission to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo,

landing craft). Deposit $200 right away at
the Club office to ensure current air fare

THE SOUDERS, Penny and Paul (5134) remind skiers and would-be skiers that the Sandia Peak Ski Patrol’s
annual Ski Swap takes place the last weekend of October — 28, 29, and 30. “Bring equipment to sell on Fri¬
day,” says Paul. "Sale days are Saturday and Sunday.” Both daughter Penny and father Paul are Patrol mem¬
bers. Penny is a senior at UNM.
Q. This morning a sign appeared above
the copy machine in the south wing of Bldg.
800. It reads: “.Priority use by Divisions 154
and 155. ” I thought that the copiers located
throughout the Labs were for the use of any
Sandia employee for official business pur¬
poses, without regard to organization
number. I also thought that copiers were
not to be tied up for more than five minutes
at a time, and that if large quantities of
copies are needed, the job can be done more
efficiently and cheaply by the Rapid Ser¬
A. You are correct in your assumption
that all copiers are for use by Sandia em¬
ployees. Occasionally, however, a par¬
ticular machine can be “captured” by an
organization for short periods to expedite a
priority task; as soon as the urgent copying
is done, the machine should again be opened
to general use.
Also, quantities of 25 copies or more
should be acquired from Rapid Services.
Sometimes the rule is violated and we have
to rely on peer pressures or the cooperation
of employees to adhere to the rule. Unfor¬
tunately, this does not always work.
We would hope that organizations that
capture a particular copier for a priority
job would kindly allow short interruptions
in their job to accommodate a quick copy¬
ing requirement of another user.
Q. I park in the lot in front of Bldg. 802.
Getting out of that lot is impossible after
work because traffic on H Street blocks the
exits. If there is a break, we still can’t get
out because the pedestrians are every¬
where. I need to enter the left hand lane that
goes west on H Street or turns left on Wyom¬
ing. But drivers and pedestrians won’t let us
cross the right hand lane to reach the left
hand lane. Would it be possible to direct the
pedestrians to the south side of H Street?
(Pedestrians also cause traffic to back up
on H Street because traffic cannot make
right turns onto Wyoming without running
A. Over the years the entrances and ex¬
its to the parking lot in front of Bldg. 800
have been changed many times in an effort
to make the traffic flow better. While there
are still some problems, I believe that it
currently is the best that we can do. We
tried to get the pedestrians to walk on the
south side of H Street, but most of them in¬
sisted on walking on the north side so we
provided a sidewalk.
Since you want to go west on H Street,
you may want to consider joining those
pedestrians and park west of Wyoming.
