While nondestructive assay techniques would improve the efficiency and time to quantify high-radioactivity nuclear material, there are no passive NDA techniques available to directly verify the U and Pu content. The JAEA and JRC are collaboratively developing the Delayed Gamma-ray Spectroscopy to evaluate the fissile composition from the unique fission product yield distributions. We are developing an Inverse Monte Carlo method that simulates the interrogation and evaluates the individual contributions to the composite spectrum. While the current nuclear data affects the ability to evaluate the composition, the IMC analysis method can be used to determine the systematic uncertainty contributions and has the potential to improve the nuclear data. We will present the current status of the DGS collaborative work as it relates to the development of the DGS IMC analysis.

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。

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.

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.
