$$beta$$崩壊の大局的理論」の核構造的な詳細に伴う変化、具体的には基底状態のパリティ変化に対応する改良を行った。大局的理論ではこれまで核構造的な詳細の伴う変化は取り入れられておらず、例えば、G. Lorusso et al., PRL114, 192501 (2015)においてその点が指摘されている。今回、$$beta$$崩壊の核行列要素においてK-Y (小浦-山田)ポテンシャル+KTUY (小浦-橘-宇野-山田)質量模型からの核構造情報を用いることにより許容遷移において選択則的な抑制を与えた。その結果核図表上の広い範囲において、$$^{48}$$Ca, $$^{80}$$Zn, $$^{132}$$Sn近辺といった、周期的に過小評価していた領域に対して系統的な改善が見られた。

We developed a four-dimensional (4D) Langevin model, which can treat the deformation of each fragment independently and applied it to low-energy fission of $$^{236}$$U, the compound system of the reaction n + $$^{235}$$U. The potential energy is calculated with the deformed two-center Woods-Saxon (TCWS) and the Nilsson-type potential with the microscopic energy corrections following the Strutinsky method and BCS pairing. The transport coefficients are calculated by macroscopic prescriptions. It turned out that the deformation for the light and heavy fragments behaves differently, showing a sawtooth structure similar to that of the neutron multiplicities of the individual fragments $$nu$$(A). Furthermore, the measured total kinetic energy TKE(A) and its standard deviation are reproduced fairly well by the 4D Langevin model based on the TCWS potential in addition to the fission fragment mass distributions. The developed model allows a multi-parametric correlation analysis among, e.g., the three key fission observables, mass, TKE, and neutron multiplicity, which should be essential to elucidate several longstanding open problems in fission such as the sharing of the excitation energy between the fragments.

JAEAタンデム加速器施設で行った$$^{18}$$O+$$^{238}$$U反応における多核子移行チャンネルを用いた実験により、$$^{237-240}$$U, $$^{239-242}$$Np、および$$^{241-244}$$Puの核分裂質量分布を励起エネルギー10$$sim$$60MeVにおいて測定した。これらのうち、$$^{240}$$U, $$^{240,241,242}$$Npのデータは本実験により初めて観測された。原子核の殻効果の減衰によって対称分裂すると予想されていた高励起エネルギーにおいても、質量分布が非対称を示すことがわかった。搖動散逸定理に基づく動力学モデル計算との比較から、この振る舞いはマルチチャンス核分裂によるものであることを明らかにした。

We are promoting a study of fission using multi-nucleon transfer (MNT) reactions, where excited states in neutron-rich actinide nuclei, which cannot be accessed by particle capture and/or fusion reactions, are populated. Also, the excited states in the fissioning nucleus are widely populated by the MNT reactions, from which effects of excitation energy on fission properties can be investigated. Experiments were carried out at the JAEA tandem facility in Tokai, Japan. We studied reactions using the $$^{18}$$O beam and several actinide target nuclei such as $$^{232}$$Th, $$^{238}$$U, $$^{237}$$Np, $$^{248}$$Cm. Ejectile nucleus was identified by a silicon $$Delta$$E-E telescope to identify transfer channel and hence the compound nucleus. Fission fragments were detected by multi-wire proportional counters, and fission fragment mass distributions (FFMDs) were measured for each isotope. Measured FFMDs are reproduced by a calculation based on the fluctuation-dissipation model, and importance of multi-chance fission concept is investigated. Fission fragment angular distribution relative to the recoil direction suggested the increase of the spin of the fissioning nucleus with the number of transferred nucleons.

We are promoting a fission study using multi-nucleon transfer reactions, where excited states in neutron-rich actinide nuclei, which cannot be accessed by particle capture and/or fusion reactions, are populated. This allows us to study fission in the new region of chart of nuclei. Also, the excited states in the fissioning nucleus are widely populated in the reactions, thus the effects of excitation energy on fission can be investigated. Experiments were carried out at the JAEA tandem facility in Tokai, Japan. We studied reactions using the $$^{18}$$O beam ($$sim$$9MeV/u) and several actinide target nuclei such as $$^{232}$$Th, $$^{238}$$U, $$^{237}$$Np, $$^{248}$$Cm. Ejectile nuclei and thus the transfer channels were identified by a newly developed silicon $$Delta$$E-E detectors. The produced nuclei in one experiment reached more than fifteen. Fission fragment mass distributions (FFMDs) were measured for each isotopes. Measured FFMDs are reproduced by a calculation based on the fluctuation-dissipation model (Langevin-type calculation), where effects of multi-chance fission were included. We also started to measure the prompt neutrons accompanied by fission.

Improvement of gross theory of beta-decay for application to nuclear data

A theoretical study of $$beta$$ decay and delayed neutron has been carried out with a global $$beta$$-decay model: the gross theory. In a fissioning nucleus, neutrons are produced by the $$beta$$ decay of neutron-rich fission fragments. This is known as delayed neutrons. The gross theory of the $$beta$$ decay is based on a consideration of the sum rule of the $$beta$$-strength function, and gives reasonable results of $$beta$$-decay rates and delayed neutron in the entire nuclear mass region. We re-analyze and improve the theory on the strength functions and one-particle level densities. We focus on the spin-parity of decaying nucleus, and a hindrance treatment is introduced for the allowed transition on parity-mismatching nuclei. By using the improved gross theory, the ability of theoretically reproduction (and also prediction) on $$beta$$-decay rates, delayed-neutron emission probabilities, decay heat, will be discussed. In the process, we make a new code of the gross theory of $$beta$$- decay including the improved parts. We will show the code, which can be distributed for the nuclear data community.

The objective of this work is to extend fission data for actinide nuclei not investigated so far in order to understand the fission mechanism, especially for neutron-rich nuclei. Multi-nucleon transfer reactions were used to populate the compound nuclei which cannot be accessed by particle capture or fusion reactions. The experiment was carried out at the tandem facility of Japan Atomic Energy Agency. In the multi-nucleon transfer reactions using $$^{18}$$O beam, a wide variety of nuclei around a target nucleus was produced. By identifying transfer channels, fission data of nuclei more than fifteen compound nuclei were generated in one experiment. Another feature of transfer reaction is that the excitation energies of a compound nucleus can be populated continuously from the ground state up to several tens MeV, allowing us to study the excitation energy dependence of fission properties. From the excitation function of fission probabilities, fission-barrier heights of neutron-rich actinide nuclei were obtained. Experiments were carried out in the reactions of $$^{18}$$O + $$^{238}$$U, $$^{232}$$Th, $$^{248}$$Cm, $$^{237}$$Np. The obtained fission fragment mass distributions were reproduced by a model calculation based on a fluctuation dissipation model.

Fission and capture reactions were simultaneously measured in the neutron-induced reactions of $$^{241}$$Am at J-PARC. Data were taken with the TOF method in $$E_n$$ = 0.1$$sim$$20 eV. The fission events were observed by detecting prompt fission neutrons using liquid organic scintillators. The capture reaction was measured by detecting $$gamma$$ rays from the compound nuclei using the same detectors, where the prompt fission neutrons and capture $$gamma$$ rays were separated by a pulse shape analysis. The cross sections were obtained by normalizing the relative yields at the first resonance to evaluations or other experimental data. The ratio of the fission to capture cross sections at each resonance is compared with those from an evaluated nuclear data library and other experimental data. Some differences were found between the present values and the library/literature values at several resonances.

The astrophysical origin of a rare isotope $$^{115}$$Sn has remained still an open question. An isomer ($$T_{1/2}$$=14.1 y) in $$^{113}$$Cd is an s-process branching point from which a nucleosynthesis flow reaches to $$^{115}$$Sn. The $$s$$-process abundance of $$^{115}$$Sn depends on the isomer production ratio in the $$^{112}$$Cd($$n,gamma$$)$$^{113}$$Cd reaction. However, the ratio has not been measured in an energy region higher than the thermal energy. We have measured $$gamma$$ rays following neutron capture reactions on $$^{112}$$Cd using two cluster HPGe detectors in conjunction with a time-of-flight method at J-PARC. We have obtained the result that the relative $$gamma$$-ray intensity ratio of the isomer is almost constant in an energy region of up to 5 keV. This result suggests that the $$s$$-process contribution to the solar abundance of $$^{115}$$Sn is negligibly small. We have found that the ratio of a resonance at 737 eV shows about 1.5 times higher than other ratios. This enhancement can be explained by a $$p$$-wave neutron capture. This result suggests measurements of decay $$gamma$$ rays to isomers are effective to assign the spin and parity for neutron capture resonances.

It is shown that the multinucleon transfer reactions is a powerful tool to study fission of exotic neutron-rich actinide nuclei, which cannot be accessed by particle-capture or heavy-ion fusion reactions. In this work, multinucleon transfer channels of the $$^{18}$$O + $$^{232}$$Th reaction are used to study fission of fourteen nuclei $$^{231,232,233,234}$$Th, $$^{232,233,234,235,236}$$Pa, and $$^{234,235,236,237,238}$$U. Identification of fissioning nuclei and of their excitation energy is performed on an event-by-event basis, through the measurement of outgoing ejectile particle in coincidence with fission fragments. Fission fragment mass distributions are measured for each transfer channel, in selected bins of excitation energy. In particular, the mass distributions of $$^{231,234}$$Th and $$^{234,235,236}$$Pa are measured for the first time. Predominantly asymmetric fission is observed at low excitation energies for all studied cases, with a gradual increase of the symmetric mode towards higher excitation energy. The experimental distributions are found to be in general agreement with predictions of the fluctuation-dissipation model.

EPJ Web of Conferences (Internet), 106, p.04004_1 - 04004_9, 2016/02


A comprehensive approach to determine nuclear data of unstable nuclei will be described. It consists of a measurement of fission and capture cross sections, mass distribution of fission fragments (independent fission yields) and number of prompt fission neutrons by the method of surrogate reactions. A multi-dimensional Langevin model is being developed to estimate the independent fission yields theoretically. Furthermore, the $$beta$$ decay properties of the fission fragments, almost all are neutron-rich unstable nuclei, are investigated systematically by improving the gross theory of $$beta$$ decay, which will yield information on the decay heat and delayed-neutron data.

原子力機構高崎量子応用研究所のイオン照射施設(TIARA)の3MVタンデム加速器、400kVイオン注入装置、3MVシングルエンド加速器の平成26年度における運転と整備の状況を報告する。シングルエンド加速器は、昇圧系トラブルによる2日間の研究利用運転の中止があったが、他の2台は、平成26年度に続き100%の稼働率を維持した。また、タンデム加速器はCoイオン(~12MeV, 3価)を新たに利用可能イオン種に加えた。タンデム加速器では、ターミナルの電圧安定度が極端に低下(1E-4以下)する現象について対策を講じた。加速電圧は、高電圧ターミナルの電圧測定値と電圧設定値の差分をもとに、ターミナルに蓄積される電荷量を制御することで安定に保たれる。電圧安定度の低下は、加速器のグランドベース(フレーム)から電源アースやCAMAC電源筐体を経由して電圧設定値の信号に誘導される100Hzの電源高調波ノイズが原因であると分かった。そこで、絶縁シートを用いて電源筐体とフレームの電気的絶縁及び電源アースの切り離しを試みた。その結果、電圧設定値の信号に誘導されていた100Hzのノイズが減少し、電圧安定度は2E-5程度に回復した。

Theoretical study of beta decay for delayed neutron

Energy Procedia, 71, p.228 - 236, 2015/05


遅発中性子のための$$beta$$崩壊の理論的研究を行う。$$beta$$崩壊は原子核崩壊の一つであるが、弱い相互作用で崩壊するという、原子核において特異なプロセスである。原子炉運転の安全性においてきわめて重要な役割を果たす平均遅発中性子放出数$$overline{nu_{rm d}}$$は総和計算という考えで理解することができ、それは$$overline{nu_{rm d}}$$が核分裂生成物の個々の核種の遅発中性子放出割合と累積核分裂収率との積の総和で与えることができるというものである。この内遅発中性子割合が$$beta$$崩壊の随伴現象であり、$$beta$$崩壊理論を用いて記述できる。本発表ではこの総和計算の考えの元、遅発中性子割合を$$beta$$崩壊の大局的理論を用いて扱い、$$beta$$崩壊確率および遅発中性子放出割合の現状について考察した。両者とも大局的理論計算における改善が矛盾なく有意になされることが可能であることを示し、その方策について述べる。
