Both the three-dimensional internal structure and elemental distribution of near-field radioactive fallout particulate material released during the March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is analysed using combined high-resolution laboratory and synchrotron radiation X-ray techniques. Results from this study allow for the proposition of the likely formation mechanism of the particles, as well as the potential risks associated with their existence in the environment, and the likely implications for future planned reactor decommissioning. A suite of particles is analyzed from a locality 2 km from the north-western perimeter of the site north of the primary contaminant plume in an area formerly attributed to being contaminated by fallout from reactor Unit 1. The particles are shown to exhibit significant structural similarities; being amorphous with a textured exterior, and containing inclusions of contrasting compositions, as well as an extensive internal void volume bimodal in its size distribution. A heterogeneous distribution of the various elemental constituents is observed inside a representative particle, which also exhibited a Fukushima-derived radiocesium ($$^{134}$$Cs, $$^{135}$$Cs and $$^{137}$$Cs) signature with negligible natural Cs. We consider the structure and composition of the particle to suggest it formed from materials associated with the reactor Unit 1 building explosion, with debris fragments embedded into the particles surface. Such a high void ratio, comparable to geological pumice, suggests such material formed during a rapid depressurisation and is potentially susceptible to fragmentation through attrition.

Unacceptably high uranium concentrations in decentralized and remote potable groundwater resources, especially those of high hardness, are a common worldwide problem. The complexation of alkali earth metals, carbonate and uranium(VI) results in the formation of thermodynamically stable ternary aqueous species that are predominantly neutrally-charged. The removal of the uncharged (non-adsorbing) complexes is a problematic issue for many water treatment technologies. As such, we have evaluated the efficacy of a recently-developed electrochemical technology, termed flow-electrode capacitive deionization (FCDI), to treat a synthetic groundwater, the composition of which is comparable to groundwater resources in the Northern Territory, Australia. Theoretical calculations and time-resolved laser fluorescence spectroscopy analyses confirmed that the complex was the primary aqueous species followed. Results under different operating conditions demonstrated that FCDI is versatile in reducing uranium concentrations to $$<$$ 10 $$mu$$g L$$^{-1}$$ with low electrical consumption (e.g. $$sim$$ 0.1 kWh m$$^{-3}$$). It is concluded that the capability of FCDI to remove uranium under these common conditions depends on the dissociation kinetics of the complex in the electrical field.

Low-lying neutron-hole states in $$^{131}$$Sn were populated via the $$^{132}$$Sn(d,t) reaction at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The triton angular distributions were compared to DWBA calculations and revealed spectroscopic factors compatible with a single-hole nature of the states populated. The data permit to determine the spin-orbit splitting of the strongly bound $$d_{3/2}$$ and $$d_{5/2}$$ neutron orbits below the shell gap, which was compared to the splitting of the weakly bound 3$$p$$ and 2$$f$$ orbits above the gap. The comparison revealed a smaller energy splitting of the 3$$p$$ orbits. All splittings were reproduced using Woods-Saxon calculations, and the lower splitting of the 3$$p$$ orbits was explained to arise from the large radial extent of the wavefunction and small value of the amplitude at the surface. This result is important to understand at a fundamental level the spin-orbit interaction, and its effects on neutron-rich nuclei.

Suitable instrumentation for laser-accelerated proton (ion) beams is critical to the development of integrated, laser-driven ion accelerator systems. Instrumentation aimed at beam diagnostics and control must be applied to the driving laser pulse, the laser-plasma that it forms at the target and the emergent proton (ion) bunch in a correlated way to develop these novel accelerators. This report is a brief overview of established diagnostic techniques and new developments based on material presented at the first workshop on "Instrumentation for Diagnostics and Control of Laser-accelerated Proton (ion) Beams" in Abingdon, UK. It includes radiochromic film (RCF), image plate (IP), the micro-channel plate (MCP), the Thomson spectrometer, prompt inline scintillation, time and space-resolved interferometry (TASRI) and nuclear activation schemes. Repetition-rated instrumentation requirements for target metrology are also addressed.

The TMI accident in 1979 motivated an interest in LWR source terms and resulted in the production of a supplement to the first state of the art report (SOAR) which concentrated on LWR aerosol issues. The second SOAR dealt with primary system FP release and transport that covers vapor the condensation on aerosols and aerosol agglomeration. The present third SOAR was prepared focusing on aerosol behavior in both the primary circuit and in containment such as mechanical resuspension, impact of chemistry, re-vaporization of deposits, charge effect, removal by spray, hydrogen-burn effects on suspended aerosols, penetration of aerosols through leak paths and so on. A large number of probabilistic safety analysis (PSA level 2) plant studies have been performed around the world, frequently involving aspects of aerosol behavior. This report provides some examples, including sensitivity studies that demonstrate the impact of aerosol-related processes.


ERL09 WG1 summary; DC gun technological challenges

西森 信行; Bazarov, I.*; Dunham, B.*; Grames, J.*; Hernandez-Garcia, C.*; Jones, L.*; Militsyn, B.*; Poelker, M.*; Surles-Law, K.*; 山本 将博*

Proceedings of 45th Advanced ICFA Beam Dynamics Workshop on Energy Recovery Linacs (ERL '09) (Internet), p.6 - 23, 2009/06

This paper summarizes technological challenges of photoemission DC guns being developed for the future energy recovery linac (ERL) light sources (LS). Anticipated new applications of ERL-LS demand an electron gun capable of producing an extremely low emittance beam at very high average current. The low emittance requires unprecedentedly high voltage equal to or greater than 500 kV between cathode/anode electrodes together with high accelerating gradient on the photocathode. The technological challenge is to develop a high voltage insulator system, which can withstand field emission from the electrodes. The high average current requires prolonged cathode life time, which is governed by ion back-bombardment. Challenges to mitigate the cathode damage caused by ion back-bompardment are surveyed. A gun geometry satisfying both high gun voltage and high accelerating gradient is also proposed.
