本研究では、原子炉ドシメトリーにおける高信頼度のスペクトル評価技術の確立を目的として、測定に基づく中性子スペクトル評価において初期スペクトルに頼らない高信頼度のアンフォールディング法を開発した。最大エントロピー原理と最尤法に基づくアルゴリズムを応答関数誤差も考慮して定式化し、その誤差評価手法も導出した。模擬データの解析により、本手法の妥当性を評価し、高速実験炉「常陽」で測定した放射化箔データに適用した結果、実験的に妥当な解スペクトルを得ることができた。

We present a new spectrum unfolding code, the Maximum Entropy and Maximum Likelihood Unfolding Code (MEALU), based on the maximum likelihood method combined with the maximum entropy method, which can determine a neutron spectrum without requiring an initial guess spectrum. The Normal or Poisson distributions can be used for the statistical distribution. MEALU can treat full covariance data for a measured detector response and response function. The algorithm was verified through an analysis of mock-up data and its performance was checked by applying it to measured data. The results for measured data from the experimental fast reactor Joyo also were compared with those obtained by the conventional J-log method for neutron spectrum adjustment. It was found that MEALU has potential advantages over conventional methods with regard to preparation of a priori information and error estimation.
