$$^{135}$$Csの断面積を測定するために用いる放射性Cs試料について、熱イオン化マススペクトロメトリーによって同位体比を測定した。分析において高強度、および安定ビームを得るために、Cs試料に加える添加剤の効果を調べた。本研究で、シリコンタングステンが、添加剤の中で一番高いイオン化効率を示したが、一方で多原子イオンの高い同重体干渉も示した。$$^{135}$$Cs/$$^{137}$$Cs比の測定で要求される精度を達成するのに、添加剤:酸化タンタルないしグルコースを用いた場合で、僅か2$$times$$10$$^{-13}$$gのCs試料で十分達成できることを実証した。バリウム核種による干渉効果などの分析条件を調べた後、2種類の放射性Cs試料の同位体比測定を行い、同位体比によりどのくらい$$^{135}$$Csの中性子捕獲断面積に影響を及ぼすかを議論した。

The measurements of isotopic ratios of Cs samples by thermal ionization mass spectrometry were performed for the analysis of their samples used to evaluate nuclear data obtained for $$^{135}$$Cs. To obtain a high intensity and stable ion beam, the effects of additive agents on the ionization of Cs were examined. The effect of silicotungstic acid on the ionization of Cs was the largest among the additive agents studied in the present study, while the silicotungstic acid also showed the largest isobaric interference of polyatomic ions. It was demonstrated that as small as 2$$times$$10$$^{-13}$$ g of a Cs sample was sufficient to achieve the analytical precision required to measure the $$^{135}$$Cs/$$^{137}$$Cs ratio in the case where an additive agent of TaO/glucose was employed. After examining of the analytical conditions, such as the interference effect due to Ba, the measurements of the isotopic ratios of two Cs samples used in our study using TIMS were conducted, and it was discussed how much the ratios contributed to evaluation of the neutron capture cross-section of $$^{135}$$Cs.
