This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Pursuant to section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89-651; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether an instrument of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instrument shown below is intended to be used, is being manufactured in the United States.
Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be filed within 20 days with the Statutory Import Programs Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. in Suite 4100W, U.S. Department of Commerce, Franklin Court Building, 1099 14th Street, NW., Washington, DC.
Docket Number: 04-015. Applicant: North Carolina State University, Campus Box 7212, Raleigh, NC 27695-7212. Instrument: Cryogen-Free Superconductive Magnet System. Manufacturer: Cryogenic Limited, United Kingdom. Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used to study properties of newly synthesized magnetic materials, phase separation phenomena and cluster nanostructure in lanthanide-doped optically-active glasses, and structural arrangements of membrane proteins and phospholipid nanoassemblies including:
1. Zero-field splitting energy for effective integer spin-systems of coupled spins that are spectroscopically silent at lower magnetic fields.
2. Spin-polarization phenomena in novel magnetic materials synthesized at the University.
3. Transmembrane location of membrane proteins.
Additionally, the instrument will be used for quantum computing experiments with essentially pure quantum state attained at magnetic fields above 11 Tesla for an ensemble of quantum dots and for experiments to lift degeneracy of quantum states of electronic spins by applying magnetic field.
