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 Pu in a consistent manner from a single measurement. This was achieved by combining simultaneously measured fission and -emission probabilities for the Pu(He, 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 -ray transitions, we measure the -emission probability. This enlarges the applicability of the surrogate-reaction method.

Twenty-one two-proton () knock-out cross sections of neutron-rich radioactive isotopes were measured in inverse kinematics using the MINOS time-projection chamber at RIBF, RIKEN. The proton angular distributions, measured for the first time, reveal that the reaction kinematics of the () reaction is consistent with sequential proton collisions within the projectile nucleus.

The neutron-deficient mercury isotopes serve as a classical example of shape coexistence, whereby at low energy near-degenerate nuclear states characterized by different shapes appear. The electromagnetic structure of even-mass Hg isotopes was studied using safe-energy Coulomb excitation of neutron-deficient mercury beams delivered by the REX-ISOLDE facility at CERN. The population of 0, 2, and 4 states was observed in all nuclei under study. Reduced matrix elements coupling populated yrast and non-yrast states were extracted, including their relative signs. These are a sensitive probe of shape coexistence and may be used to validate nuclear models. The experimental results are discussed in terms of mixing of two different configurations and are compared with three different model calculations: the Beyond Mean Field model, the Interacting Boson Model with configuration mixing and the General Bohr Hamiltonian. Partial agreement with experiment was observed, hinting to missing ingredients in the theoretical descriptions.

We report temperature dependent measurements of the spin Seebeck effect (SSE) in multilayers formed by repeated growth of a FeO/Pt bilayer junction. The magnitude of the observed enhancement of the SSE, relative to the SSE in the single bilayer, shows a monotonic increase with decreasing the temperature. This result can be understood by an increase of the characteristic length for spin current transport in the system, in qualitative agreement with the recently observed increase in the magnon diffusion length in FeO at lower temperatures. Our result suggests that the thermoelectric performance of the SSE in multilayer structures can be further improved by careful choice of materials with suitable spin transport properties.

Spin Seebeck effects have been investigated in highly crystalline magnetic multilayer films. Voltage as well as power generated by the spin Seebeck effect were found to be significantly enhanced with increasing the number of layers, . This voltage enhancement defies the simple understanding of the spin Seebeck effect and suggests that spin current flowing between the magnetic layers in the thickness direction plays an important role in the multilayer SSE systems and the observed voltage enhancement.

We report a complete characterization of the anomalous Nernst effect (ANE) and its relationship with the anomalous Hall effect (AHE) in FeO. By combining full thermoelectric and electric transport measurements as a function of temperature, we have verified that the universal scaling relation between the anomalous Hall and diagonal conductivities, observed in materials with bad-metal-hopping type of conduction, is also applicable to the thermoelectric transport. We further show that the ANE and AHE are commonly related through the Mott relation, therefore demonstrating its validity for anomalous transport phenomena in materials with conduction in the dirty regime.

We report the experimental observation of the spin Seebeck effect in magnetite thin films. The signal observed at temperatures above the Verwey transition is a contribution from both the anomalous Nernst (ANE) and spin Seebeck (SSE) effects. The contribution from the ANE of the FeO layer to the SSE is found to be negligible due to the resistivity difference between FeO and Pt layers. Below the Verwey transition, the SSE is free from the ANE of the ferromagnetic layer and it is also found to dominate over the ANE due to magnetic proximity effect on the Pt layer.
