We are promoting for practical product observation by the energy-resolved neutron imaging method using high-intensity pulsed neutrons at J-PARC, under the Photon and Quantum Basic Research Coordinated Development Program from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan. Bragg edge imaging, one of the energy-resolved neutron imaging methods for visualizing material properties, was applied to feasibility study of the temperature distribution of copper rod, complementary study of the texture and strain distribution of bent steel plates using neutron diffraction and EBSD, and so on. Outline of results obtained by these imaging experiments will be presented.

Neutron diffraction is widely used for the investigation of lattice strain, texture and phase transformation in bulk materials. Although the distributions of these characteristics can be obtained by scanning the sample, the spatial resolution of the measurement is limited. Recently, Bragg-edge imaging technique is developed and adopted for the evaluations of lattice strain, crystal orientation and phase distributions in polycrystalline engineering materials such as steel. On the other hand, neutron diffraction imaging has a potential to be another technique for such purpose. Diffraction imaging at a pulsed neutron source requires a counting type two-dimensional position sensitive detector with high spatial resolution. We developed prototype imaging detector with wavelength-shifting fiber (WLSF) readout, and tried to observe sub grains in the b-Sn single crystal and grain distribution in the coarse-grained steel plate at NOBORU (BL10) of J-PARC MLF.

Our previous neutron diffraction measurements investigated strain accumulation mechanism(s) in rock materials under uniaxial compression. This technique, when applied to metallic materials, is suffered by surface effects, gauge volume size effects, and/or incident beam divergence that induce pseudo-strain. Knowledge of the pseudo-strain is therefore necessary for precise evaluation of strain value in a stressed rock material. This work investigated the effects of gauge volume and incident neutron beam divergence on pseudo-strain in rock materials via neutron diffraction experiments performed on three types of sandstone. Spurious peak shifts appeared depending on the gauge volume or incident neutron beam divergence. These peak shifts were inferred to be derived from the difference between a neutron-weighted center of gravity position and a geometric center of the gauge volume position. However, changing the gauge volume height did not cause shift in the peak position.

The deformation behavior of an equi-atomic face-centered-cubic CoCrFeNi high entropy alloy was investigated by in-situ neutron diffraction under tensile loading up to 40% applied strain. A three-stage deformation behavior was fully captured by lattice strain and texture evolution. In spite of the chemical complexity, the deformation in CoCrFeNi is dominated by dislocation activities. Analysis of diffraction and microscopy data shows that the deformation progresses from dislocation slip to severe entanglement, where a sharp increase in dislocation density was observed. The neutron diffraction data, corroborated by transmission electron microscopy analysis, provided microscopic insights of the previously reported three-stage hardening behavior.

A time-resolved time-of-flight neutron diffraction technique to characterize the structural properties of materials during cyclic tests has been developed. By adopting the developed technique, the behaviors of the crystal lattice and domains of the piezoelectric material in a multilayer-type piezoelectric actuator driven by a cyclic electric field were evaluated. The variation in diffraction intensity during the application of a cyclic electric field was obtained successfully, and the hysteresis-like behaviors of both the lattice strain and the 90 domain switching were revealed.

The microstructure evolution of medium manganese steel (Fe-5Mn-2Si-0.1C (wt%)) during thermo-mechanical processing in ferrite + austenite two-phase region was investigated by in situ neutron diffraction analysis and microstructure observations. When the specimens were isothermally held at a temperature of 700C, the fraction of reversely transformed austenite increased gradually with an increase in the isothermal holding time. However, it did not reach the equilibrium fraction of austenite even after isothermal holding for 10 ks. On the other hand, the fraction of reversely transformed austenite increased rapidly after the compressive deformation at a strain rate of 1 s at 700C and reached the equilibrium state during subsequent isothermal holding for around 3 ks.

Precipitation of brittle zirconium hydrides deteriorate the fracture toughness of the fuel cladding tubes of light water reactor. In the present study, to elucidate relationship between mechanical properties and microstructure, two -phase zirconium hydrides and one -phase zirconium hydride were carefully fabricated considering volume changes at the metal-to-hydride transformation. The -hydride that was fabricated from -zirconium exhibits numerous inner cracks due to the large volume change. Analyses of the neutron diffraction pattern and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) data show that the sample displays significant stacking faults in the plane and in the pseudo-layered microstructure. On the other hand, the -hydride sample fabricated from -zirconium at a higher temperature displays equiaxed grains and no cracks.

To understand strengthening mechanism in lath martensitic steels, in situ neutron diffractions during tensile deformation for 22SiMn2TiB steel and Fe-18Ni alloy were performed using TAKUMI of J-PARC. Profile analyses were performed using Convolutional Multiple Whole Profile (CMWP) fitting and Williamson-Hall (W-H) methods. As results, the dislocation densities as high as 10 m in the as-quenched states of both steels were determined hardly to change or slightly increase by the CMWP method. The reliability of the dislocation density obtained from the W-H method was low, because the whole profile was not considered for the analysis. In the former method, the values of parameter M related to dislocations arrangement was found to decrease rapidly for both steels at the beginning of plastic deformation. Hence, high work hardening in the lath martensitic steels was considered due to the dislocations rearrangements with plastic deformation.

Various methods were employed to measure the austenite volume fraction in a 1.5Mn-1.5Si-0.2C steel. It has been confirmed that the volume fractions determined by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy/electron back scatter diffraction, X-ray diffraction and neutron diffraction exhibit a general trend to become larger in this order, although the values obtained by X-ray and neutron diffraction are similar in the present steel because austenite is relatively stable. The austenite volume fractions determined by diffraction methods have been found to be affected by the measuring specimen direction, i.e., texture, even by applying the conventional correcting procedure. To avoid this influence, it is recommended to measure both of volume fraction and texture simultaneously using neutron diffraction. Although synchrotron X-ray shows higher angle resolution, its small incident beam size brings poor statistic reliability. The influence of texture cannot be avoided for transmission Bragg edge measurement, either, which must be overcome to realize 2D or 3D volume fraction mapping.

neutron diffraction during tensile deformation of lath martensite steel containing 0.22 mass% of carbon, is performed using TAKUMI of J-PARC. The diffraction peaks at plastically deformed states exhibit asymmetries as the reflection of redistributions of the stress and dislocation densities/arrangements in lath-packets where the dislocation glides are favorable (soft packet) and unfavorable (hard packet). The dislocation density is as high as 10 m at the as-quenched state, and then during tensile straining, the load and the dislocation density become different between the two lath-packets. The dislocation character and arrangement vary also in the hard packet, but hardly change in the soft packet. The hard packet plays an important role in the high work hardening in martensite, which could be understood by taking into account not only the increase of the dislocation density but also the change in dislocation arrangement.

To understand the strengthening mechanism of a metallic material with high dislocation density, the plastic deformation behavior of lath martensite was studied by means of in situ neutron diffraction measurements during tensile deformations using a 22SiMn2TiB steel and a Fe-18Ni alloy. The characteristics of dislocation were analyzed and were discussed with the relation of stress-strain curves. The dislocation densities induced by martensitic transformation during heat-treatment in both materials were found to be originally as high as 10 m order, and subsequently to increase slightly by the tensile deformation. The parameter M value which displays the dislocation arrangement dropped drastically at the beginning of plastic deformation in both materials, indicating that the random arrangement became more like a dipole arrangement.

Microstructural change during hot compressive deformation at 700 C followed by isothermal annealing for a Fe-32Ni austnitic alloy was monitored using neutron diffraction. The evolution of deformation texture with 40% compression and its change to recrystallization texture during isothermal annealing were presented by inverse pole figures for the axial and radial directions. The change in dislocation density was tracked using the convolutional muli-profile whole profile fitting method. To obtain the fitting results with good statistics, at least 60 s time-slicing for the event-mode recorded data was needed. The average dislocation density in 60 s after hot compression was determined to be 2.8 10 m that decreased with increasing of annealing time.

The influences of bending deformation and subsequent subzero treatment on the martensite transformation behaviors in a metastable austenitic alloy Fe-25Ni-0.4C were investigated by the time-of-flight (TOF) neutron Bragg-edge transmission (BET) imaging method. Two-dimensional (2D) maps of martensite phase volume fractions and texture variations due to residual stress and lowering the temperature of the bent samples before and after subzero treatment were obtained by Bragg-edge spectral analysis. The obtained phase volume fractions were quantitatively compared with those determined by neutron diffraction.

Residual stresses near the weld metal of the joints before and after a thermal cycle were measured using a reactor based neutron diffraction technique in room temperature. In-situ residual stress measurements were performed on the plate type sample using a pulsed neutron diffraction technique under thermal cycles. Residual stress behaviors of the samples were examined also by the idealized explicit FEM (IEFEM), which agreed well with the experimental results of the residual stress behaviors during thermal cycles. Thermal stresses were induced near the weld metal by the difference of the linear expansion coefficients of the dissimilar base metals. Since the thermal stress exceeded the yield stress of the material during the first heating process, the residual stresses near the weld metal were redistributed and a part of the residual stress was relaxed.

Based on high-resolution neutron diffraction experiments we will show that in lath martensite steels the initially homogeneous dislocation structure is disrupted by plastic deformation, to produce a composite on the length scale of martensite lath packets. The diffraction patterns of plastically strained martensitic steel reveal characteristically asymmetric peak profiles in the same way as has been observed in materials with heterogeneous dislocation structures. Lath packets oriented favorably or unfavorably for dislocation glide become soft or hard. The lath packet type develops by work softening or work hardening in which the dislocation density becomes smaller or larger compared to the initial average one. The decomposition into soft and hard lath packets is accompanied by load redistribution between the two lath packet types. The composite behavior of plastically deformed lath martensite opens a new way to understand the elastic-plastic response in this class of materials.

The magnetic structure of the intermetallic compound EuGa was investigated using single-crystal neutron diffraction with TOF Laue technique on the new diffractometer SENJU at MLF of J-PARC. Despite of the high neutron absorption of Eu, a vast number of diffraction spots were observed without isotope enrichment. The magnetic reflections appeared at 2 below 16 K, indicating that the ordering vector is = (0, 0, 0). The continuous evolution of the magnetic reflection intensity below T follows a squared Brillouin function for = 7/2. By adopting a wavelength-dependent absorption collection, the magnetic structure of EuGa revealed that a nearly full magnetic moment of 6.4 B of Eu lies within the basal plane of the lattice.

The microstructure of the metallic material is widely investigated in order to understand mechanical properties of the material by line profile analysis for X-ray and neutron diffraction data. Neutron diffraction has an advantage for obtaining averaged information of the microstructure inside the bulky material owing to its high transmittance. Further, the variation of the microstructure in the material during mechanical process is able to be observed by in-situ measurements. The Convolutional Multiple Whole Profile (CMWP) fitting method is a state of the art technique for line profile analysis. The dislocation characteristics are evaluated from the shape of the peak profile including the tail by this technique. In this study, the dislocation characteristics in martensitic steels during tensile deformation were studied by in-situ neutron diffraction measurement using the Engineering Materials Diffractometer TAKUMI at J-PARC through line profile analysis using the CMWP fitting method.
