Reliable neutron-induced-reaction cross sections of unstable nuclei are essential for nuclear astrophysics and applications but their direct measurement is often impossible. The surrogate-reaction method is one of the most promising alternatives to access these cross sections. In this work, we successfully applied the surrogate-reaction method to infer for the first time both the neutron-induced fission and radiative capture cross sections of $$^{239}$$Pu in a consistent manner from a single measurement. This was achieved by combining simultaneously measured fission and $$gamma$$-emission probabilities for the $$^{240}$$Pu($$^{4}$$He, $$^{4}$$He') surrogate reaction with a calculation of the angular-momentum and parity distributions populated in this reaction. While other experiments measure the probabilities for some selected $$gamma$$-ray transitions, we measure the $$gamma$$-emission probability. This enlarges the applicability of the surrogate-reaction method.

Phage typically have small genomes and depend on their bacterial hosts for replication. We generated metagenomic datasets from many diverse ecosystems and reconstructed hundreds of huge phage genomes, between 200 kbp and 716 kbp in length. Thirty four genomes were manually curated to completion, including the largest phage genomes yet reported. Expanded genetic repertoires include diverse and new CRISPR-Cas systems, tRNAs, tRNA synthetases, tRNA modification enzymes, initiation and elongation factors and ribosomal proteins. Phage CRISPR have the capacity to silence host transcription factors and translational genes, potentially as part of a larger interaction network that intercepts translation to redirect biosynthesis to phage-encoded functions. Some phage repurpose bacterial systems for phage-defense to eliminate competing phage. We phylogenetically define seven major clades of huge phage from human and other animal microbiomes, oceans, lakes, sediments, soils and the built environment. We conclude that large gene inventories reflect a conserved biological strategy, observed across a broad bacterial host range and resulting in the distribution of huge phage across Earth's ecosystems.

We report our coordinated efforts to address these data needs such as radiation shielding design and radiation transport analyses, and present the results of the new evaluations of more than 200 nuclides included in the new updated IAEA Photonuclear Data Library, where the photon energy goes up to 200 MeV. We discuss the new assessment method and make recommendations to the user community in cases where the experimental data are discrepant and the assessments disagree. In addition, in the absence of experimental data, we present model predictions for photon-induced reaction cross section on nuclides of potential interest to medical radioisotope production.

Five new 2$$^+$$ levels and one new 3$$^-$$ level were established in $$^{210}$$Po. The states were populated via the $$^{208}$$Pb($$^{12}$$C, $$^{10}$$Be) two-proton reaction experiment, performed at the JAEA Tandem in Tokai. A setup combining Ge, LaBr$$_3$$, and Si telescopes was used to detect in-beam $$gamma$$-rays and ejectile residues. Two-proton configurations were assigned to all new states. All assignments are strongly supported by shell-model calculations.

The prompt fission $$gamma$$-ray energy spectrum for cold-neutron induced fission of $$^{235}$$U was measured in the energy range $$E_{rm gamma}$$ = 0.8 - 20,MeV, by gaining a factor of about 10$$^{5}$$ in statistics compared to the measurements performed so far. The spectrum exhibits local bump structures at $$E_{rm gamma}approx$$4,MeV and $$approx$$6,MeV, and also a broad one at $$approx$$15,MeV. In order to understand the origins of these bumps, the $$gamma$$-ray spectra were calculated using a statistical Hauser-Feshbach model, taking into account the de-excitation of all the possible primary fission fragments. It is shown that the bump at $$approx$$4,MeV is created by the transitions between the discrete levels in the fragments around $$^{132}$$Sn, and the bump at $$approx$$6,MeV mostly comes from the complementary light fragments. It is also indicated that a limited number of nuclides, which have high-spin states at low excitation energies, can contribute to the bump structure around $$E_{rm gamma}approx$$15,MeV, induced by the transition feeding into the low-lying high-spin states.

Excited states of the rubidium isotopes $$^{87,89,91}$$Rb were studied at the INFN Legnaro National Laboratory. Measurements of the $$gamma$$-ray of nuclei produced in binary reactions from the interaction of a beam of 530 MeV $$^{96}$$Zr ions with a $$^{124}$$Sn target were complemented by studies of the $$gamma$$-rays from nuclei produced in the interaction of a beam of 230 MeV $$^{36}$$S ions with a thick $$^{176}$$Yb target. The structure of the yrast states of $$^{87, 89, 91}$$Rb is discussed within the context of spherical shell-model and cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations.

A search for super-allowed $$alpha$$ decay of N=Z nuclei $$^{104}$$Te and $$^{108}$$Xe was carried out using a novel recoil-decay scintillator detector at the tandem accelerator facility at Japan Atomic Energy Agency. Inorganic crystal scintillation material of YAP:Ce (Yttrium Aluminium Perovskite) coupled to position-sensitive photo-multiplier tube (PSPMT) was implemented for the first time in a radioactive decay experiment. Residues from the fusion-evaporation reaction $$^{58}$$Ni+$$^{54}$$Fe$$rightarrow$$ $$^{112}$$Xe$$^*$$ were separated by the JAEA Recoil Mass Separator (RMS) and implanted into the YAP:Ce crystal. $$alpha$$ decays of neutron-deficient tellurium isotopes were identified and proton-emission of $$^{109}$$I was observed. No conclusive evidence was found for the decay chain $$^{108}$$Xe$$rightarrow$$$$^{104}$$Te$$rightarrow$$ $$^{100}$$Sn within 3 days experiment. The cross section limit of 130 pb was obtained for production of two events of $$^{108}$$Xe, about an order of magnitude below the expectation based on earlier cross section measurements and HIVAP calculations.

Hyperfine-structure parameters and isotope shifts for the 795-nm atomic transitions in $$^{217,218,219}$$At have been measured at CERN-ISOLDE, using the in-source resonance-ionization spectroscopy technique. Magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments, and changes in the nuclear mean-square charge radii, have been deduced. A large inverse odd-even staggering in radii, which may be associated with the presence of octupole collectivity, has been observed. Namely, the radius of the odd-odd isotope $$^{218}$$At has been found to be larger than the average.

We report neutron scattering measurements of single-crystalline YFe$$_{2}$$Ge$$_{2}$$ in the normal state, which has the same crystal structure as the 122 family of iron pnictide superconductors. YFe$$_{2}$$Ge$$_{2}$$ does not exhibit long-range magnetic order but exhibits strong spin fluctuations. Like the iron pnictides, YFe$$_{2}$$Ge$$_{2}$$ displays anisotropic stripe-type antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations at ($$pi, 0, pi$$). More interesting, however, is the observation of strong spin fluctuations at the in-plane ferromagnetic wave vector ($$0, 0, pi$$). These ferromagnetic spin fluctuations are isotropic in the ($$H, K$$) plane, whose intensity exceeds that of stripe spin fluctuations. Both the ferromagnetic and stripe spin fluctuations remain gapless down to the lowest measured energies. Our results naturally explain the absence of magnetic order in YFe$$_{2}$$Ge$$_{2}$$ and also imply that the ferromagnetic correlations may be a key ingredient for iron-based materials.

The paper presents the progress in the developments of an electro-magnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) based on a Halbach magnet system optimized for detection of defects in thick plates with application to the inspection of fast breeder reactors (FBR) vessel. The defects are located far or near weld lines in small austenitic stainless steel plates or in large thick (50 mm) plates mounted in a FBR vessel mock-up. Performance of single or double units EMAT are investigated and optimised for working in industrial conditions and with cables long up to 45 m. Experimental measurements focussed on increased signal/noise ratio for detection signal from defects near or far from welds of reactor vessel.

第一イオン化エネルギー(IP$$_1$$)は、原子の価電子軌道に関する情報を与える。99番元素アインスタイニウムよりも重いアクチノイドのIP$$_1$$は、一度に一つの原子しか扱うことのできない実験の難しさから、これまでに実験的に測定された例はなかった。我々は表面電離法を応用した新しい測定手法により、103番元素ローレンシウム(Lr)のIP$$_1$$測定に成功し、Lrが弱く束縛された最外殻電子をもつことを強く示唆する結果を得た。一方、Lrとは対象的に、102番元素ノーベリウムは充填された5f軌道および7s軌道をもつために、アクチノイド中最高のIP$$_1$$をもつと考えられている。表面電離法によるIP$$_1$$決定法をNoおよび100番元素フェルミウム, 101番元素メンデレビウムに適用することにより求められた各IP$$_1$$から、5f軌道への電子の充填に伴ってIP$$_1$$が単調に増加し、Noで最も大きくなることを確かめることができた。このことから、f軌道に電子が充填され、アクチノイド系列がLrで終わることを実験的に確かめた。

Approaching a quantum critical point has been an effective route to stabilize superconductivity. While the role of magnetic QCPs has been extensively discussed, similar exploration of a structural QCP is scarce. Using inelastic X-ray scattering, we examine the phonon spectrum of the nonmagnetic quasi-skutterudite (Ca$$_x$$Sr$$_{1-x}$$)$$_3$$Rh$$_4$$Sn$$_{13}$$, which represents a precious system to explore the interplay between structural instabilities and superconductivity by tuning the Ca concentration x. We unambiguously detect the softening of phonon modes around the M point on cooling towards the structural transition. Intriguingly, at x = 0:85, the soft mode energy squared at the M point extrapolates to zero at -5.7 K, providing the first compelling microscopic evidence of a structural QCP in (Ca$$_x$$Sr$$_{1-x}$$)$$_3$$Rh$$_4$$Sn$$_{13}$$. The enhanced phonon density-of-states at low energy provides the essential ingredient for realizing strong-coupling superconductivity near the structural QCP.

As a generic property, all substances transfer heat through microscopic collisions of constituent particles. A solid conducts heat through both transverse and longitudinal acoustic phonons, but a liquid employs only longitudinal vibrations. As a result, a solid is usually thermally more conductive than a liquid. In canonical viewpoints, such a difference also serves as the dynamic signature distinguishing a solid from a liquid. Here, we report liquid-like thermal conduction observed in the crystalline AgCrSe$$_{2}$$. The transverse acoustic phonons are completely suppressed by the ultrafast dynamic disorder while the longitudinal acoustic phonons are strongly scattered but survive, and are thus responsible for the intrinsically ultralow thermal conductivity. This scenario is applicable to a wide variety of layered compounds with heavy intercalants in the van der Waals gaps, manifesting a broad implication on suppressing thermal conduction. These microscopic insights might reshape the fundamental understanding on thermal transport properties of matter and open up a general opportunity to optimize performances of thermoelectrics.

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.
