Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

Transmission system for the GAMMA 10 central-cell ECRH was newly constructed. This system was designed to maximize the calculated Poynting flux reaching the resonance surface. Performance test of main components of the transmission system was carried out with a low power source. The power transmission rates of the taper and the vacuum window were larger than 97 %. Microwave power as high as 88 % of that radiated from the open end of the corrugated waveguide was transmitted to the resonance surface with the designed mirror. This value agrees well with the value expected in our design.
