The structure of a neutron-rich $$^{25}$$F nucleus is investigated by a quasifree ($$p,2p$$) knockout reaction. The sum of spectroscopic factors of $$pi 0d_{5/2}$$ orbital is found to be 1.0 $$pm$$ 0.3. The result shows that the $$^{24}$$O core of $$^{25}$$F nucleus significantly differs from a free $$^{24}$$O nucleus, and the core consists of $$sim$$35% $$^{24}$$O$$_{rm g.s.}$$, and $$sim$$65% excited $$^{24}$$O. The result shows that the $$^{24}$$O core of $$^{25}$$F nucleus significantly differs from a free $$^{24}$$O nucleus. The result may infer that the addition of the $$0d_{5/2}$$ proton considerably changes the neutron structure in $$^{25}$$F from that in $$^{24}$$O, which could be a possible mechanism responsible for the oxygen dripline anomaly.

Improvement of accuracy of neutron nuclear data for minor actinides (MAs) and long-lived fission products (LLFPs) is required for developing innovative nuclear system transmuting these nuclei. In order to meet the requirement, the project entitled as "Research and development for Accuracy Improvement of neutron nuclear data on Minor ACtinides (AIMAC)" has been started as one of the "Innovative Nuclear Research and Development Program" at October 2013. The AIMAC project team is composed of researchers in four different fields: differential nuclear data measurement, integral nuclear data measurement, nuclear chemistry, and nuclear data evaluation. By integrating all of the forefront knowledge and techniques in these fields, the team aims at improving the accuracy of the data. The background, overall plan, and recent progress of the AIMAC project will be reviewed.

Innovative powder production and granulation for advanced MOX fuel fabrication

Kurita, Tsutomu; Kato, Yoshiyuki; Yoshimoto, Katsunobu; Suzuki, Masahiro; Kihara, Yoshiyuki; Fujii, Kanichi

Proceedings of International Conference on Advanced Nuclear Fuel Cycle; Sustainable Options & Industrial Perspectives (Global 2009) (CD-ROM), p.94 - 102, 2009/09

With regard to advanced MOX fuel fabrication, a new concept in which one vessel especially designed to meet microwave de-nitration is utilized also for crushing and for granulation, without organic lubricant nor powder transfer across the processes, was introduced for innovative MOX powder production. In order to realize this concept, two attempts were made: A specially designed three blade impeller coupled with auxiliary blade. A uniquely shaped mixing blade coupled with an auxiliary blade having auto-orbital hybrid rotation. The mixing blade promotes the growth of particles, whereas the auxiliary blade suppresses the overgrowth by chopping larger particles. These granulators use a little water as binder. As a result, major diameter of granule 400-1000 micron and flow-ability 82-85 was obtained with fine WO$$_{3}$$ model powder. Therefore, a prospect to satisfy both desirable powder properties and simplified nuclear material production was opened, as well as improvement of working efficiency and cut down on costs.

A pair of conventional permanent magnet quadrupoles is used to focus a 2.4 MeV laser-driven proton beam at a 1 Hz repetition rate. The magnetic field strengths are 55 T/m and 60 T/m for the first and second quadrupoles respectively. The proton beam is focused to a spot size (full width at half maximum) of 2.7$$times$$8 mm$$^{2}$$ at a distance of 650 mm from the source. This result is in good agreement with a Monte Carlo particle trajectory simulation.

Application of microwave heating to MOX fuel production and its contribution to Japanese energy strategy

Suzuki, Masahiro; Ishii, Katsunori; Yamamoto, Takuma; Kihara, Yoshiyuki; Kato, Yoshiyuki; Kurita, Tsutomu; Yoshimoto, Katsunobu; Fujii, Kanichi

Proceedings of Global Congress on Microwave Energy Applications (GCMEA 2008/MAJIC 1st), p.501 - 504, 2008/08

The natural resources, oil and uranium, would dry up around the midway of this century. FBR cycle most probably rescues this difficult situation. Mass production of MOX fuel for FBR, therefore, is the supreme subject to Japanese energy strategy. For this subject, we are attacking with Microwave heating technology. Up to present, we have succeeded to produce excellent PuO$$_{2}$$/UO$$_{2}$$ bulk, 2 kgMOX/batch, advancing toward the mass production target, 5 kgU/h for one batch.

Here we report the new features and improvements in our latest release of the H-Invitational Database, a comprehensive annotation resource for human genes and transcripts. H-InvDB, originally developed as an integrated database of the human transcriptome based on extensive annotation of large sets of fulllength cDNA (FLcDNA) clones, now provides annotation for 120 558 human mRNAs extracted from the International Nucleotide Sequence Databases (INSD), in addition to 54 978 human FLcDNAs, in the latest release H-InvDB. We mapped those human transcripts onto the human genome sequences (NCBI build 36.1) and determined 34 699 human gene clusters, which could define 34 057 protein-coding and 642 non-protein-coding loci; 858 transcribed loci overlapped with predicted pseudogenes.

Northern Hemisphere forcing of climatic cycles in Antarctica over the past 360,000 years

We present a new chronology of Antarctic climate change over the past 360,000 years that is based on the ratio of oxygen to nitrogen molecules in air trapped in the Dome Fuji and Vostok ice cores. This ratio is a proxy for local summer insolation, and thus allows the chronology to be constructed by orbital tuning without the need to assume a lag between a climate record and an orbital parameter. The accuracy of the chronology allows us to examine the phase relationships between climate records from the ice cores and changes in insolation. Our results indicate that orbital-scale Antarctic climate change lags Northern Hemisphere insolation by a few millennia, and that the increases in Antarctic temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration during the last four terminations occurred within the rising phase of Northern Hemisphere summer insolation. These results support the Milankovitch theory that Northern Hemisphere summer insolation triggered the last four deglaciations.

Observation of Small Particles Infiltration Process in Sphere-Pac Fuel Pin Fabrication

Ishii, Katsunori; Suzuki, Masahiro; Kihara, Yoshiyuki; Fujii, Kanichi*

Funtai Kogakkai-Shi, 42(7), p.472 - 477, 2005/00

To optimize sphere-pac fuel pin fabrication process, internal structure of fuel pin under small particles infiltration process was observed by micro focus X-ray CT system. Some small particles block the space among large particles. Small particles arrive at the bottom of fuel column, and fill the space among large particles, and form completed packing layer. Sphere-pac process progresses with growth of the layer from bottom to top of the column. A unique layer is formed around the top of fuel column shot time after starting vibration. Small particles completely intrude between large particles and pin wall in the layer. The structure never changes after completion of small particles infiltration process. The formation of the unique layer can be qualitatively explained by simulation.

An earlier accomplishment of FBR(fast breeder reactor) fuel cycle is the supreme subject from the point of view on the protection of environment by suppressing the green house effect as well as saving the oil. Microwave heating (MH) is employed as the MOX (mixed oxides U-Pu) production process in the main stream of FBR cycle. Thus, we are the optimization of MH method. We will describe the practical work of MOX fuel production which recycles the consumed nuclear fuel containing both U and Pu. The MH is employed to solidify the mixed solution by evaporating nitric acid and water. We call this processing de-nitration. The physical, mechanical, and chemical characteristics of the products are analyzed, being thereby discussed the contribution of the MH technology to the MOX fuel production. And, optimization of MH is discussed from the view point of design of MH oven, regulation of MH power, and combination with several auxiliary heating sources.

From our previous research, we have successfully produce MeV proton beam by 1Hz repetition rate stabely from the interaction between the femto-second TW laser with solid target. Produced proton beam exhibits lower emittance. The number of proton beam is 10$$^{13}$$. However, it shows large divergence angle of 10 degree. The energy spectrum exhibits 100% energy spread. These are problematic for some specific applications. In this study we transported the laser-driven proton beam with permanent quadrapole magnet for the future application. We successfully obtain focused proton beam as well as the monochromatic proton beam. Those spatial distribution at the focus point as well as the spectral information is well reproduced by the montecalro simulation.
