It is important to assess and suppress the potential for second cancer induction by secondary neutrons produced in primary heavy-ion fragmentation in patient body. Since it is very difficult to measure high-energy neutron doses in mixed radiation fields, a Monte-Carlo simulation approach has attracted much attention as an alternative for neutron dose estimation. It is notoriously hard to reproduce the spectral cross sections of neutrons from high-energy heavy-ion collisions. We, therefore, have planned experiments to measure energy-angle double-differential cross sections of nuclear reactions.

A phoswich-type neutron detector was developed in order to measure high-energy cosmic-ray neutron spectrum in aircrafts. The neutron detector consists of a 121.7 mm diameter and a 121.7 mm long EJ309 organic liquid scintillator covered with a 15 mm thick EJ299-13 outer plastic scintillator. Neutron response functions of the detector are required for an unfolding method to get the energy spectrum. The neutron response functions were evaluated from measurements using quasi-monoenergetic neutron sources of various peak energies from 35 to 78 MeV and from the MCNPX simulation. Light output and scintillation attenuation in the scintillator were measured for proton, deuteron and helium-ion beams. The measured neutron response functions well agreed with the MCNPX simulation. Neutron response matrix was created up to 300 MeV neutron energy based on the MCNPX simulation in order to cover the wide neutron energy range in the fight experiment. Photon response matrix also was created up to 50 MeV.

Aiming at a nuclear data library leading the world; Nuclear data research activity and nuclear data division

Igashira, Masayuki*; Baba, Mamoru*; Watanabe, Yukinobu*; Katakura, Junichi; Suyama, Kenya

Nippon Genshiryoku Gakkai-Shi, 51(4), p.290 - 293, 2009/04

The nuclear data library is required for the research and development of the nuclear energy. The requirements include not only safety improvements associated with high burnup of light water reactors, utilization of MOX fuels, and criticality safety control implementation of burnup credit and so on, but also research and development of innovative nuclear power system such as nuclear transmutation with the ADS; these requirements demand high precision data for the nuclear cross sections of minor actinides and fission product nuclides, and for the fission yields. The most important users of the nuclear data will still be those in the nuclear energy field. Moreover, for those users in the fields of radiation application and radiological engineering, nuclear data are required to be expanded in quantity and upgraded in quality. In the globalization trend of nuclear power industries, the international standard of nuclear data library is anticipated. In order to reflect the technology developed by Japan in the international standard, we should have our own nuclear data library leading the world.

A line-integrated neutron emission profile is routinely measured using Stilbene neutron detector in JT-60U tokamak. Although the SND has many advantages as a neutron detector, the maximum count rate is limited up to 10$$^{5}$$ cps due to the analog pulse shape discrimination (PSD) circuit. To overcome this issue, a digital signal processing (DSP) system using a flash ADC has been developed In this system anode signals from photomultiplier of the SND are directory stored and digitized. Then, the PSD between neutrons and $$gamma$$ rays is performed using software. The DSP system has been installed in the vertical neutron collimator system inJT-60U and applied to deuterium experiments. It is confirmed that the PSD is sufficiently performed and collimated neutron flux is successfully measured with count rate up to 10$$^{6}$$ cps without the effect of pileup of detected pulses.

Confinement degradation of energetic ions due to Alfv$'e$n Eigenmodes (AEs) induced by negative-ion-based neutral beam injection for the classical confinement is quantitatively evaluated for the first time. AEs, whose frequency largely sweep and then saturate as the minimum value of the safety factor decrease, have been observed in JT-60U. These mode behavior can be explained by RSAEs and the transition from RSAEs to TAEs. Measured total neutron emission rate in the presence of these AEs is compared with that predicted by a classical theory. As a result, confinement degradation of energetic ions is confirmed. Line-integrated neutron emission profile is also compared with that predicted when assuming that the confinement is classical. The result indicates energetic ions are transported from core region of the plasma due to these AEs.

Several unexplored physics issues will be studied in burning plasma experiments, planned on ITER in the near future. To carry out these studies, it is essential to develop novel diagnostic systems, such as fusion product measurement systems and high-resolution, high-reliability profile measurement of various plasma parameters. Scientific research on "Advanced Diagnostics for Burning Plasma Experiment" was assigned as a priority area by MEXT in 2004, and more than 20 studies are currently underway under this program. The feasibility of several new diagnostic concepts applicable to ITER is examined and diagnostic components for these systems are now under development.

Neutron energy spectra produced from thick targets play an important role in validation of calculation codes that are employed in the design of spallation neutron sources and the shielding design of accelerator facilities. However, appropriate experimental data were scarce in the forward direction for the incident energy higher than 100 MeV. In this study, neutron spectra at 0 degree from thick targets bombarded with 350 MeV protons were measured by the time-of-flight technique using an NE213. The targets used were graphite, Al, Fe and Pb and their thicknesses were chosen to be a little thicker than the stopping lengths. The experiment was carried out at the TOF course of the RCNP (Research Center of Nuclear Physics) ring cyclotron, Osaka University. The flight path length between center of the target and of an NE213 were 11.4 m for the measurement of low energy neutrons and 95 m for high energy neutrons. The experimental data are compared with the calculated results by using the Monte Carlo transport codes, such as MCNPX and PHITS codes.

New evaluations of neutron nuclear data for Uranium, Plutonium, and Thorium isotopes which are essential for applications to nuclear technology were carried out for the Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library, JENDL-3.3. The objectives of the current release of JENDL were to fix several problems which have been reported for the previous version, to improve the accuracy of the data, and to evaluate covariances for the important nuclides. Quantities in JENDL-3.2 were extensively re-evaluated or replaced by more reliable values. The heavy nuclide data in JENDL-3.3 were validated with several benchmark tests, and it was reported that the current release gave a good prediction of criticalities.

In order to validate shielding design methods on proton accelerator facilities, a series of shielding experiments in several tens of MeV energy region were carried out at the Takasaki Ion Accelerators for Advanced Radiation Application (TIARA) of Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI). The experiments include thick target neutron yield (TTY) measurements by charged particles, deep penetration experiments on concrete, steel and polyethylene shields using p-Li monoenergetic neutron source and radiation streaming experiment at a labyrinth of TIARA using p-Cu white neutron source. These experimental results are compared with calculation results with some high-energy particle transport codes such as MCNPX and NMTC/JAERI. The TTY measurements were analyzed by a code developed by Shin with a moving source model, and the streaming experiment was also analyzed by the DUCT-III code based on Shin's equation. This paper reviews the experimental results and the analyses on the results.

Evaluation for JENDL-3.3 has been performed by considering the accumulated feedback information and various benchmark tests of the previous library JENDL-3.2. The major problems of the JENDL-3.2 data were solved by the new library: overestimation of criticality values for thermal fission reactors was improved by the modifications of fission cross sections and fission neutron spectra for $$^{235}$$U; incorrect energy distributions of secondary neutrons from important heavy nuclides were replaced with statistical model calculations; the inconsistency between elemental and isotopic evaluations was removed for medium-heavy nuclides. Moreover, covariance data were provided for 20 nuclides. The reliability of JENDL-3.3 was investigated by the benchmark analyses on reactor and shielding performances. The results of the analyses indicate that JENDL-3.3 predicts various reactor and shielding characteristics better than JENDL-3.2.
