Present safeguards verification methods of high-radioactivity nuclear material use destructive analysis techniques since passive nondestructive techniques are incapable of determining the nuclear material content. To improve this verification process, the JAEA and EC-JRC Ispra, Italy have been collaborating to develop delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy for composition analysis of the fissile nuclides as an aspect of the MEXT subsidy for improving nuclear security and the like. Multiple experiments were performed over three years using PUNITA to interrogate U and Pu samples to determine the signature from the short-lived fission products. We observed many gamma rays useful to determine the composition of a mixed nuclear material sample. Presented here are the results of these measurements with correlations to the interrogation, mass, volume, and sample homogeneity.

Nuclear material accountancy is of fundamental importance for nuclear safeguards and security. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is no established technique that enables us to accurately determine the amount of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) and Minor Actinides (MA) in high radioactive nuclear materials. Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission Collaboration Action Sheet-7 started in 2015. The purpose of this project is to develop an innovative non-destructive analysis (NDA) system using a D-T pulsed neutron source. Active neutron NDA techniques, namely Differential Die-Away Analysis (DDA), Prompt Gamma-ray Analysis (PGA), Neutron Resonance Capture Analysis (NRCA), Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis (NRTA) and Delayed Gamma-ray Analysis (DGA) have been studied and developed. The different methods can provide complementary information which is particularly useful for quantification of SNM and MA in high radioactive nuclear materials. The second phase of the project has started. In the second phase, we will continue to conduct additional research to improve the methodology and develop an integrated NDA system. This presentation gives an overview of the project and the NDA system and reports the recent results. This research was implemented under the subsidiary for nuclear security promotion of MEXT.

DGS has great potential for HRNM, since it determines fissile nuclide compositions by correlating the observed DG spectrum to the unique FY of the individual nuclides. Experiments were performed with LRNM using both PUNITA and a JAEA designed Cf-shuffler tested in PERLA. The data was analyzed using an inverse MC method that both determines DG peak intensity correlations and provides an evaluation of the uncertainty of the measurements. The results were used to verify DG signatures for varying fissile compositions, total fissile content, and DGS interrogation timing patterns. Future development will focus on measuring HRNM and designing a compact system by evaluating different neutron sources, moderating materials, and detection capabilities. This presentation summarizes the JAEA/JRC DGS program to date and the future direction of this collaborative work performed using the MEXT subsidy for the promotion of strengthening nuclear security.

Along with the global increase of applications using nuclear materials (NM), the requirements to nuclear security and safeguards for the development of effective characterization methods are growing. Mass verification of NM of low radioactivity is performed using passive non-destructive analysis (NDA) techniques whereas destructive analysis (DA) techniques are applied for accurate analysis of nuclide composition. In addition to the characterization by passive NDA, a sample can be further characterized by active NDA techniques. An active neutron NDA system equipped with a pulsed neutron generator is currently under development for studies of NDA methods. Among the methods DGS uses the detection of decay $$gamma$$-rays from fission products (FP) to determine ratios of fissile nuclides present in the sample. A proper evaluation of such $$gamma$$-ray spectra requires integration of nuclear data such as fission cross-sections, fission yields, half-lives, decay chain patterns, and decay $$gamma$$-ray emission probabilities. The development of the DGS technique includes experimental verification of some nuclear data of fissile materials, as well as development of the device. This presentation will be a brief introduction of the active neutron NDA project and an explanation of the DGS development program.

原子力機構は、4つのアクティブ法を組合せたNDAシステムの開発をEC-JRCと共同で実施している。遅発$$gamma$$線分光法は核分裂性核種の組成比を決定することができるもので、観測する核分裂生成核種の時間依存型の、高エネルギー$$gamma$$線を、サンプルの複雑な核分裂収率と関連付けて分析するものである。興味のある核分裂性核種比を定量するためには、使用する(小型の持ち運びが可能な)中性子源からの速中性子を、核分裂反応断面積の大きな熱中性子までエネルギーを下げつつ、有意な計数信号を得るためのフラックス強度を必要とする。現在、遅発$$gamma$$線分光法の改良のため、JRC-IspraのPUNITAを含むいくつかの施設での実験が進行中である。これらの中性子フラックス、測定環境等データは、遅発$$gamma$$線分光データの分析を行うモンテカルロ法(逆モンテカルロ法)の開発に使われる。ここでの遅発$$gamma$$線分光法は、その実証に関して、これまでの開発成果である減速系の最適化、実験、逆モンテカルロ法についてまとめる。

保障措置分野では、高線量核物質の核分裂性核種の組成比の独立検認のために、新たな、改良アクティブ問い掛け法NDA技術が必要とされている。原子力機構とJoint Research Centre (JRC)は、サンプルの核分裂生成核種の崩壊からの遅発$$gamma$$線を測定することで、サンプル中核物質の核分裂性核種比を決める遅発$$gamma$$線分光法を共同で開発している。現在、低線量核物質サンプルを用いた測定がいくつかの施設で行われることとなっている。ここで、長半減期核分裂生成核種からの影響を最小限にするために、低エネルギー$$gamma$$線の遮へいと、3MeVを超える高いエネルギーの$$gamma$$線に注目する必要がある。この測定法では、異なる小型中性子源が使用されるが、いずれにおいても中性子エネルギーを熱エネルギー領域まで減速することが必要である。我々は、減速体及び反射体をMCNPを用いて最適化を進めており、また、問い掛け、移動、測定のシークエンスの最適化も進めている。現在進めている測定では、認証されたU/Puサンプルを使用しており、観測する遅発$$gamma$$線を同位体組成に比例する関連付けが可能となる。この発表では、最適化の状況とともに、U/Puサンプル中の核分裂性核種比決定のための実験キャンペーンを紹介する。

JAEA and EC/JRC have been carrying out collaborative research for developing new non-destructive assay techniques that can be utilized for quantifying high radioactive special nuclear materials such as spent fuel and next generation minor actinide fuels. In the research, accuracy of Monte Carlo simulation is important since it is utilized for design and development of a demonstration system of next-generation Differential Die-away (DDA) technique in JAEA. In order to evaluate the accuracy, neutron flux in the sample cavity of the PUNITA device which utilizes JRC type DDA technique and one of JAWAS-T device which utilizes JAEA type DDA technique were measured. The neutron flux in the target sample placed in the PUNITA sample cavity was also measured. The measurement results were compared with the simulation results. In this presentation, we report on comparison results for the neutron flux obtained by experiment and simulation.

In 2015, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission collaboration started to develop an active neutron non-destructive assay system for nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security. To the best of our knowledge, no adequate technique exists that allows us to determine the amount of special nuclear materials and minor actinides in high radioactive nuclear materials, such as spent fuel, transuranic waste, etc. The collaboration aims at contributing to the establishment of an innovative NDA system using a D-T pulsed neutron source for various applications. We utilize several active neutron NDA techniques, namely Differential Die-Away Analysis (DDA), Prompt Gamma-ray Analysis (PGA), Neutron Resonance Capture Analysis (NRCA), Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis (NRTA) and Delayed Gamma Spectroscopy (DGS). All of these techniques have advantages and disadvantages. The different methods can provide complementary information which is particularly useful for nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security. In this project, we have developed a combined NDA system, which enables the measurements of DDA and PGA, at NUclear fuel Cycle safety Engineering research Facility (NUCEF) in JAEA. In this presentation, we will introduce our project and report the recent progress of developments, especially in NRTA, DDA and PGA.

Under the collaboration between the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and European Commissions' Joint Research Center (EC-JRC), development of four active neutron-interrogation non-destructive assay methods for nuclear non-proliferation and safeguards are in progress. The techniques are differential die-away analysis, delayed gamma-ray analysis (DGA), neutron resonance transmission analysis, and prompt gamma-ray analysis. Information obtained by each method is used complementarily to characterize a sample. DGA utilizes moderated pulsed neutrons from a D-T neutron generator to induce fission reaction of nuclear materials. Delayed gamma rays from the fission products (FP) are measured to determine the ratios of fissile nuclides (e.g. $$^{235}$$U, and $$^{239,241}$$Pu) in the sample. Experimental studies of the DGA method are in progress with the Pulsed Neutron Interrogation Test Assembly (PUNITA) in EC-JRC Ispra. Here we present an overview of the study plan of these DGA experiments along with the latest results. This research was implemented under the subsidiary for nuclear security promotion of MEXT.

原子力機構では、核変換用MA-Pu燃料などの高線量核燃量の非破壊測定技術の開発を目的として欧州JRCとの共同研究を開始した。共同開発項目の1つであるDDA法の技術開発として、JAEA型DDA法とJRC型DDA法の特性を比較し、より発展した手法、装置の開発を目指している。JRC型DDA法では高感度を実現するために14MeV中性子発生管とグラファイトを用いて大量の熱中性子を発生させている。一方、JAEA型DDA法では測定対象のマトリクスによる減速を利用し測定対象内の位置感度差を低減するために、高速中性子の多い中性子場を発生させている。DDA法では、装置の性能を評価する上で中性子発生管により装置内に作られる中性子場を正確に評価することが重要である。本発表では、モンテカルロシミュレーションと放射化測定により得られた結果に基づいたJRC型DDA法を使用したPUNITAとJAEA型DDA法を使用したJAWAS-T装置内の中性子束分布について評価結果を報告する。

原子力機構(JAEA)と欧州共同研究センター(JRC)は、核変換用MA-Pu燃料などの高線量核燃料の非破壊測定技術開発に関する共同研究を行っている。その中のDifferential Die-Away (DDA)法の不確かさの主要因は、試料内での核物質の偏在、及び試料材質によって大きく異なる中性子の減速・吸収・増倍効果である。これらを評価するため、核物質の偏在状態を模擬できる標準マトリクスを3種類の材質で作成し、核物質の偏在と中性子の減速・吸収・増倍効果を同時に調べることを可能とした。本発表では、JRC型DDA法による測定装置Pulsed Neutron Interrogation Test Assembly (PUNITA)を用いて、核物質の偏在と試料の材質が測定に与える影響を定量的に評価した結果について報告する。

New active-interrogation nondestructive assay techniques are needed for safeguard purpose. They can be used for the quantification of the fissile composition in high radioactivity nuclear material samples. One of the techniques under evaluation by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency together with the European Commission Joint Research Centre is delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy. It utilizes a combination of high rate neutron sources and moderation to thermal energy to induce fission in the fissile nuclides. This will allow enhancing the amount of observable coming from the fission of the fissile compared with the fertile nuclides that are usually more abundant in the sample. Analyzing the peaks ratios of gamma-rays with energy above 3 MeV emitted by the short lived fission products produced in the sample, it is possible to verify the initial composition of the fissile nuclides. We are currently designing and testing several different systems with the goal to design a practical and compact system that can be installed in current reprocessing facilities. In particular, this paper describes the different systems currently tested focusing on the different neutron source and moderator material and geometry as well as different gamma-ray detectors. We will also show the new neutron and gamma-ray detector systems we will implement for future test and development. This work is supported by the subsidy for the "promotion of strengthening nuclear security and the like" from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT), Japan.
