中性子放射化分析と中性子捕獲断面積の精度向上のために、Westcott記法のg因子とs因子のバイアス効果について検討した。バイアス要因として、接合関数形状,中性子温度,試料温度を調べた。2つの1/v則に従う同位体($$^{197}$$Au, $$^{59}$$Co)と6つの非1/v同位体($$^{241}$$Am, $$^{151}$$ Eu, $$^{103}$$Rh, $$^{115}$$In, $$^{177}$$Hf, $$^{226}$$Ra)について、定量的な計算を行った。詳細なモンテカルロ シミュレーションによって推定された最新の接合関数で計算したs因子を、Westcottによる従来の接合関数で計算したs因子と比較した。この結果、サンプル温度によって誘発されるバイアスは、g因子の場合で0.1%のオーダー、s因子の場合で1%のオーダーと小さいことを示した。一方、接合関数の形状の差に起因するs因子のバイアスは、同位体と中性子温度の両方に大きく依存することを示した。この結果、反応率にも大きな影響が生じることも示した。この効果を明示するため、熱外中性子インデックスr=0.1の場合に、検討した8種類すべての同位体について、反応率に生じるバイアスを定量的に与えた。

The neutron capture cross sections of $$^{244}$$Cm and $$^{246}$$Cm were measured for the neutron energy range of 1-1000 eV via the neutron time-of-flight method with ANNRI at MLF of the J-PARC. The world's most intense neutron pulses from the Japan Spallation Neutron Source enable the accurate measurement of neutron capture cross sections. Besides, single-bunched neutron pulses allow the analysis in a higher neutron energy region than the previous measurement at ANNRI. The resonance analyses were performed up to 1000 eV by using a resonance shape analysis code REFIT. The spectra of prompt gamma-rays from neutron capture reactions of $$^{244}$$Cm and $$^{246}$$Cm were also obtained, and 43 and 10 prompt gamma-ray peaks from $$^{244}$$Cm(n,$$gamma$$) and $$^{246}$$Cm(n,$$gamma$$) reactions were newly observed, respectively.

Excited states in $$^{35}$$S were investigated by in-beam $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy using the $$^{26}$$Mg($$^{18}$$O, 2$$alpha$$1$$n$$) fusion-evaporation reaction. The de-exciting $$gamma$$-rays were measured with germanium detector arrays along with the measurement of evaporated charged particles in a $$4pi$$ segmented Si detector array. The level scheme was extended up to 12470 keV. The obtained level structure is compared with the large-scale shell-model calculations. The possibility of isoscalar-pair excited states is discussed for $$J=(17/2)$$ states with comparison between the experimental and theoretical results.

The OECD-NEA High Priority Request List (HPRL) is a point of reference to guide and stimulate the improvement of nuclear data for nuclear energy and other nuclear applications. The HPRL is application-driven and the requests are submitted by nuclear data users or representatives of the user's communities. A panel of international experts reviews and monitors the requests in the framework of an Expert Group mandated by the NEA Nuclear Science Committee Working Party on International Nuclear Data Evaluation Cooperation (WPEC). After approval, individual requests are divided in two priority categories only, whereas a third category now includes groups of generic requests in a well-defined area (e.g., dosimetry, standard). The HPRL is hosted by the NEA in the form of a relational database publicly available on the web. This contribution provides an overview of HPRL entries, status and outlook. Examples of requests successfully completed will be given and new requests will be described with emphasis on updated nuclear data needs in the fields of nuclear energy, neutron standards, dosimetry, and medical applications.

The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Working Party on International Nuclear Data Evaluation Cooperation (WPEC) was established in 1989 to facilitate collaboration in nuclear data activities. Over its thirty year history, fifty different subgroups have been created to address topics in nearly every aspect of nuclear data, including: experimental measurements, evaluation, validation, model development, quality assurance of databases and the development of software tools. After three decades we will review the status of WPEC, how it integrates other collections and activities organised by the NEA and how it dovetails with the initiatives of the IAEA and other bodies to effectively coordinate international activities in nuclear data.

原子炉を用いた放射化分析などで重要な中性子共鳴積分値を高精度化するため、熱外中性子スペクトルの新しい近似を定式化した。近似式の導出に当たっては、はじめにモンテカルロ計算コードMVP-3を用いて参照解となる中性子スペクトルを計算し、これから 型の関数型を導出した。従来の近似式に比較し、導出した関数型は、中性子共鳴積分値を高精度に決定できることを示した。この検討は、過去にJRR-3で行われた$$^{135}$$Csの中性子共鳴積分値の測定データに基づき行われた。また、提唱した近似式に導入したパラメータ$$alpha$$及び$$beta$$を実験的に決定するため、3種類のフラックスモニター($$^{197}$$Au, $$^{59}$$Co及び$$^{94}$$Zr)を用いる手法を提唱するとともに、解析手法を定式化した。

The use of Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis to characterize homogeneous samples not fulfilling good transmission geometry conditions is discussed. Analytical expressions for such samples have been derived and implemented in the resonance shape analysis code REFIT. They were validated by experiments at the time-of-flight facility GELINA using a set of metallic natural copper samples. The expressions were used to derive sample characteristics by a least squares adjustment to experimental transmission data. In addition, the resonance parameters of Cu for energies below 6 keV, which are reported in the literature and recommended in evaluated data libraries, were verified. This research was implemented under the subsidiary for nuclear security promotion of MEXT.

A large-volume ($$phi$$12.0 cm$$times$$12.7 cm) LaBr$$_{3}$$ scintillation detector equipped with a specially-designed radiation shield was evaluated for neutron resonance capture analysis at the neutron time-of-flight (TOF) facility GELINA. By using the LaBr$$_{3}$$ detector with and without the shield, measurements were carried out at a 13-m TOF station with three metallic samples, namely, Ni, Cr, and Fe. In addition, Monte Carlo simulations with Geant4 were performed, and the results were compared with the measurements to analyze the observed energy spectra and TOF spectra. Energy spectra obtained with the shield showed that prompt $$gamma$$-ray peaks emitted from each sample can be used to identify the isotopes. Moreover, the signal-to-noise ratios of resonance peaks in a TOF spectrum with the shield were enhanced 1.5-2.5 in comparison with those without the shield. Furthermore, simultaneous measurements conducted using the three samples demonstrated that the shield employed herein was indispensable for identifying impurities in a composite sample such as particle-like fuel debris.

Neutron total and capture cross sections of $$^{243}$$Am have been measured in Accurate Neutron Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex with a neutron TOF method. The neutron capture cross section in the energy region from 10 meV to 100 eV was determined using an array of Ge detectors. Three samples with different activities were used for measurements of the capture cross section. The neutron total cross section in the energy region from 4 meV to 100 eV was measured using Li-glass detectors. Derived cross-section value at neutron energy of 0.0253 eV is 87.7$$pm$$5.4 b for the capture cross section and 101$$pm$$11 b for the total cross section.

We have measured the $$gamma$$-ray energy spectrum from the thermal neutron capture, $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$, on an enriched $$^{157}$$Gd target ($$Gd_2O_3$$) in the energy range from 0.11 MeV up to about 8 MeV. The target was placed inside the germanium spectrometer of the ANNRI detector at J-PARC and exposed to a neutron beam from the Japan Spallation Neutron Source (JSNS). Radioactive sources ($$^{60}$$Co, $$^{137}$$Cs, and $$^{152}$$Eu) and the reaction $$^{35}Cl(n,gamma)$$ were used to determine the spectrometer's detection efficiency for $$gamma$$ rays at energies from 0.3 to 8.5 MeV. Using a Geant4-based Monte Carlo simulation of the detector and based on our data, we have developed a model to describe the $$gamma$$-ray spectrum from the thermal $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$ reaction. While we include the strength information of 15 prominent peaks above 5 MeV and associated peaks below 1.6 MeV from our data directly into the model, we rely on the theoretical inputs of nuclear level density and the photon strength function of $$^{158}$$Gd to describe the continuum $$gamma$$-ray spectrum from the $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$ reaction. The results of the comparison between the observed $$gamma$$-ray spectra from the reaction and the model are reported in detail.

Neutron capture cross section measurements on $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd were performed using the time-of-flight technique at the n_TOF facility at CERN on isotopically enriched samples. The measurements were carried out in the n TOF experimental area EAR1, at 185m from the neutron source, with an array of 4 C$$_6$$D$$_6$$ liquid scintillation detectors. At a neutron kinetic energy of 0.0253eV, capture cross sections of 62.2(2.2) and 239.8(8.4) kilobarn have been derived for $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd, respectively, with up to 6% deviation relative to values presently reported in nuclear data libraries, but consistent with those values within 1.6 standard deviations. A resonance shape analysis has been performed in the resolved resonance region up to 181eV and 307eV, respectively for $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd, where on average, resonance parameters have been found in good agreement with evaluations. Above these energies and up to 1keV, the observed resonance-like structure of the cross section has been analysed and characterised. From a statistical analysis of the observed neutron resonances we deduced: neutron strength function of 2.01(28) $$times$$ 10$$^{-4}$$ and 2.17(41) $$times$$ 10$$^{-4}$$; average total radiative width of 106.8(14)meV and 101.1(20)meV and s-wave resonance spacing 1.6(2)eV and 4.8(5)eV for n + $$^{155}$$Gd and n + $$^{157}$$Gd systems, respectively.

Neutron total and capture cross sections of $$^{241}$$Am have been measured with a new data acquisition system and a new neutron transmission measurement system installed in Accurate Neutron Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI) at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). The neutron total cross sections of $$^{241}$$Am were determined by using a neutron time-of-flight method in the neutron energy region from 4 meV to 2 eV. The thermal total cross section of $$^{241}$$Am was derived with an uncertainty of 2.9%. A pulse-height weighting technique was applied to determine neutron capture yields of $$^{241}$$Am. The neutron capture cross sections were determined by the time-of-flight method in the neutron energy region from the thermal to 100 eV, and the thermal capture cross section was obtained with an uncertainty of 4.1%. The evaluation data of JENDL-4.0 and JEFF-3.2 were compared with the present results.

We report on the measurement of the $$^7$$Be(n,p)$$^7$$Li cross section from thermal to approximately 325 keV neutron energy, performed in the high-flux experimental area (EAR2) of the n_TOF facility at CERN. This reaction plays a key role in the lithium yield of the big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) for standard cosmology. The only two previous time-of-flight measurements performed on this reaction did not cover the energy window of interest for BBN, and they showed a large discrepancy between each other. The measurement was performed with a Si telescope and a high-purity sample produced by implantation of a $$^7$$Be ion beam at the ISOLDE facility at CERN. While a significantly higher cross section is found at low energy, relative to current evaluations, in the region of BBN interest, the present results are consistent with the values inferred from the time-reversal $$^7$$Li(p,n)$$^7$$Be reaction, thus yielding only a relatively minor improvement on the so-called cosmological lithium problem. The relevance of these results on the near threshold neutron production in the p+$$^7$$Li reaction is also discussed.

Accurate neutron capture cross section data of $$^{126}$$Sn, which is one of the most important long-lived fission products (LLFPs), is required in the study of transmutation of radioactive waste. However, there is only one experimental data at the thermal energy. A $$^{126}$$Sn sample for a nuclear data experiment contaminated with a large amount of tin stable isotopes, $$^{115, 117-120, 122, 124}$$Sn, because these stable isotopes also have fission yields. These isotopes have large effects on neutron-capture cross-section measurements for $$^{126}$$Sn. To obtain accurate cross-section data for $$^{126}$$Sn, a series of neutron-capture cross-section measurements of all the tin stable isotopes are required. Therefore, the measurements of all tin stable isotopes have been started with Accurate Neutron-Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI) of Materials and Life science experimental Facility (MLF) in Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). In this presentation, preliminary results of the neutron-capture cross-section measurements of $$^{120, 122, 124}$$Sn are reported in the neutron energy region from 10 meV to 2 keV.

J-PARC物質・生命科学実験施設ANNRIビームラインのデータ収集系更新作業が行われた。MLFのビームパワーは2008年に比較して2015年には20倍以上となり、ビーム量の増大によりビームラインユーザーはより高統計の実験データを取得できるようになった。ビームパワー増大に対応するため、ANNRIにおけるGe検出器アレイのデータ収集システムが更新された。データ収集システムは同時に、中性子全断面積測定のために整備されているLi glass検出器の信号取得のためにも用いられる予定である。コミッショニング実験が0.1mm厚の金サンプルを用いてJ-PARCの500kW陽子ビームを用いて行われた。捕獲断面積および全断面積測定両方について飛行時間法の適用性が試験された。Ge検出器アレイについて、ADCおよびTDCの非線形性、エネルギー分解能、多チャンネルコインシデンスおよび不感時間の性能が測定された。Ge検出器の不感時間は従来のデータ収集システムに比較して、少しのエネルギー分解能劣化を許容すれば1/4になっていた。
