Our CB-KID neutron imager detects high spatial resolution neutrons transmission images by using a delay-line technique. We found that the number of events was remarkably increased with increasing the detector temperature until close to the critical temperature Tc. We investigated the properties of CB-KID at near Tc. We observed systematic changes of neutron signals as a function of the detector temperature from 4 K to Tc. The simulations modeled the sequential physical processes for $$^{10}$$B(n,$$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reactions and energy deposition by particles within CB-KID, including neutrons, $$^{4}$$He particles, $$^{7}$$Li particles, photon and electron transport.

The energy-resolved neutron imaging system, RADEN, has been installed at the pulsed neutron source in the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. In addition to conventional neutron radiography and tomography, RADEN, the world's first imaging beam-line at a pulsed neutron source, provides three main options for new, quantitative neutron imaging techniques: Bragg-edge imaging to visualize the spatial distribution of crystallographic information, resonance absorption imaging for elemental composition and temperature information, and polarized neutron imaging for magnetic field information. This paper describes the results of characterization studies of the neutronic performance and installed devices at RADEN and shows the results of several demonstration studies for pulsed neutron imaging.

We succeeded in designed and fabricated a neutron detector by using a superconducting current-biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID), which is constructed by two perpendicular Nb-based superconducting meander-lines and an enriched $$^{10}$$B neutron conversion layer. We rebuilt completely a neutron image of a $$^{10}$$B dot array contain in the stainless-steel mesh. To improve the resolution of neutron images, the characteristics of a superconducting neutron detector have been studied carefully. In this study, we present the dependence of neutron signals in the temperature of detector. We found that when the temperature of a neutron detector is as close as the critical temperature of superconductivity, the intensity of signal increase as a function of temperature. We consider that the ratio of noise and signal is decrease which is very useful to improve the resolution of neutron images.

ナノダイアモンドは、冷中性子以下のエネルギーにおける反射材として注目されている。ナノダイアモンドを用いた中性子源の高度化には、断面積データの整備が必要である。そのため、この論文では、中性子の透過率の測定から0.2meVから100meVの範囲で全断面積を測定した結果を報告する。測定した全断面積は、エネルギーが低くなるにつれて大きくなり、グラファイトと比較すると0.2meVで約2桁以上高くなることが分かった。その全断面積に占める非弾性散乱の寄与を調べるため、中性子のエネルギー1.2, 1.5, 1.9及び5.9meVで中性子非弾性散乱実験を行った。その結果、測定したエネルギーにおいて、全断面積に占める非弾性散乱の寄与がほぼ無視できることも分かった。さらに、中性子小角散乱実験の結果から、全断面積の高くなる要因として、前方方向、いわゆる小角方向への散乱の寄与が高いことが示された。

Computed Tomography(CT)を用いて、模擬燃料デブリの3次元観察を行った。CTを使用して得られた模擬燃料デブリの内部は、ジルコニアリッチ部分およびコンクリートリッチ部分における明確なコントラストを示した。溶融状態からまず融点の高いジルコニアが析出する。コンクリートより重いジルコニアは結晶が析出すると下部へ移動し底面付近に凝集するため相分離が生じる。相分離はジルコニアの組成比の違いによって生じているが、組成比による結晶モードの違いも観察することができた。

At the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source, liquid hydrogen moderators composed of 99.8% parahydrogen associated with light-water premoderator have been providing high intensity cold and thermal neutron beams. In the design stage, simulations have shown not only high total neutron intensity in the coupled moderator but also a local neutron-brightness increase at the edges. The edge-effect-brightness increase is also exploited in the design of the European Spallation Source (ESS) moderators, which are based on 99.8% parahydrogen, but thin (thickness: 3 cm) to enhance the neutron brightness. In this study, the spatial distribution of the neutron brightness at the surface of the coupled moderator in the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source was directly measured with the pinhole geometry to validate the calculated edge-brightness enhancement. The brightness distribution at the moderator surface was clearly observed as predicted by a Monte Carlo simulation, proving the validity of the simulation tools used in the design-optimization process of the J-PARC and ESS moderator.

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)の物質・生命科学実験施設(MLF)では、高エネルギーパルス陽子ビーム(3GeV, 25Hz)を用いた核破砕反応により発生した中性子を、液体水素モデレータで減速し、実験装置にパルス冷熱中性子を供給する。モデレータや反射体容器構造材の放射線損傷により2020年ごろに交換時期を迎える。現在、交換に向けて、モデレータ及び反射体の予備機製作を進めている。予備機は、現在MLFで使用しているものと外観上は同じであるが、内部構造において、大きく2つ改良を加えた。一つは、水素輸送配管に線膨張係数の最も小さなインバー材を採用したこと。もう一つは、中性子ビームパルスをシャープにする熱中性子吸収材として、新たに金・インジウム・カドミウム(Au-In-Cd)材を開発したことである。5重の多重配管を構成する水素輸送配管では、インバー材を採用することで、熱収縮量を確保するために必要であった偏心構造を同軸構造に変え、製作性を大きく向上させた。熱中性子吸収材として、Au-In-Cd材は、残留放射能を大きく軽減する材料で、この用途に初めて開発されたものである。本件では、これら材料を導入したモデレータ・反射体の製作状況について報告する。

We report recent issues that have been encountered by AMATERAS, which is a cold-neutron disk-chopper spectrometer installed at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility at J-PARC. After the last ICANS meeting held in 2014, AMATERAS has continued its user program. On the other hand, the spectrometer has faced several problems, such as a weak shield at the beam dump, failure of one of the chopper disks and many such problems, which we are currently investigating. Further, several instrumental improvements have been performed, such as background reduction, fixing badly designed parts and other such improvements. Our extensive experience obtained in the period of more than 7 years on one of the world's first pulse-shaping chopper spectrometers may help other researchers who are operating or planning to construct similar spectrometers.

A new mapping procedure for polycrystals using neutron Bragg-dip transmission is presented. This is expected to be useful as a new materials characterization tool which can simultaneously map the crystallographic direction of grains parallel to the incident beam. The method potentially has a higher spatial resolution than neutron diffraction imaging. As a demonstration, a Bragg-dip neutron transmission experiment was conducted at J-PARC on beamline MLF BL10 NOBORU. A large-grained Si-steel plate was used. Since this specimen included multiple grains along the neutron beam transmission path, it was a challenging task for existing methods to analyze the direction of the crystal lattice of each grain. A new data-analysis method for Bragg-dip transmission measurements was developed based on database matching. As a result, the number of grains and their crystallographic direction along the neutron transmission path have been determined.

Local structures around impurities in solids provide important information for understanding the mechanisms of material functions, because most of them are controlled by dopants. For this purpose, the X-ray absorption fine structure method, which provides radial distribution functions around specific elements, is most widely used. However, a similar method using neutron techniques has not yet been developed. If one can establish a method of local structural analysis with neutrons, then a new frontier of materials science can be explored owing to the specific nature of neutron scattering-that is, its high sensitivity to light elements and magnetic moments. Multiple-wavelength neutron holography using the time-of-flight technique with pulsed neutrons has great potential to realize this. We demonstrated multiple-wavelength neutron holography using a Eu-doped CaF$$_{2}$$ single crystal and obtained a clear three-dimensional atomic image around trivalent Eu substituted for divalent Ca, revealing an interesting feature of the local structure that allows it to maintain charge neutrality. The new holography technique is expected to provide new information on local structures using the neutron technique.

J-PARCの核破砕中性子源では、中性性ビームを生成するために水銀ターゲットシステムを運転している。水銀ターゲットでは、大強度のパルス陽子ビームが入射することによって水銀の急激な発熱により圧力波が発生する。圧力波によって、水銀を内包するターゲット容器に繰返し応力だけでなくキャビテーション損傷を引き起す。圧力波を低減することは、ターゲット容器の寿命を保つ上で非常に重要な課題である。我々は、微小気泡を水銀中に注入し、圧力波を低減する技術の開発を行っており、今回、微小気泡発生器を水銀ターゲット容器に実装し、圧力波により励起されるターゲット容器の変位速度をその場診断装置で測定し、陽子ビーム条件や微小気泡の効果を調査した。その結果、ターゲット容器の変位速度は微小気泡により減少し、変位速度のピーク値は、気泡の注入量が0.4%, 0.1%の場合、気泡を注入しない場合に比べて各々1/3, 2/3に低減することを明らかにした。

We successfully derived the time-dependent flux of pulsed neutrons using a superconducting Nb-based current biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID) with a $$^{10}$$B conversion layer at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. Our CB-KID is a meander line made of a 40-nm-thick Nb thin film with 1-$$mu$$m line width, which is covered with a 150-nm-thick $$^{10}$$B conversion layer. The detector works at a temperature below 4 K. The evaluated detection efficiency of the CB-KID in this experiment is 0.23% at the neutron energy of 25.4 meV. The time-dependent flux spectra of pulsed neutrons thus obtained are in good agreement with the results obtained by the Monte Carlo simulations.

The impact of different spallation models and parametrisations of nucleon-nucleus interactions in PHITS on nuclear characteristics of an accelerator-driven system (ADS) is investigated. Cut-off neutrons below 20 MeV calculated by a current default option of the spallation model (i.e., Li${`e}$ge Intranuclear Cascade (INC) model version 4.6, INCL4.6) are found to be 14% less than those by the old spallation model (it i.e. Bertini INC model). This decrease increases the proton beam current that drives the 800-MW thermal power, and impacts various ADS parameters, including material damage, nuclear heating of the proton beam window (PBW), and the inventory of spallation products. To validate these options based on the ADS neutronics design, we conduct benchmark calculations of the total and nonelastic cross sections, thick target neutron yields, and activation reaction rate distributions. The results suggest that Pearlstein-Niita systematics, which is a default option of the nucleon-nucleus interaction parametrisation, would be best option and that the Bertini INC is better suited for cut-off neutrons than INCL4.6. However, because of the difficulty in making a definite conclusion on the spallation models, we conclude that relatively large uncertainty in the cut-off neutrons, which is the difference between the two spallation models (i.e. 14%), should be considered.

Neutron Bragg-edge transmission imaging makes it possible to quantitatively visualize the two-dimensional distribution of microstructure within a sample. In order to examine its application to engineering products, time-of-flight Bragg-edge transmission imaging experiments using a pulsed neutron source were performed for plastically bent plates composed of a ferritic steel and a duplex stainless steel. The non-homogeneous microstructure distributions, such as texture, crystalline size, phase volume fraction and residual elastic strain, were evaluated for the cross sections of the bent plates. The obtained results were compared with those by neutron diffraction and electron back scatter diffraction, showing that the Bragg-edge transmission imaging is powerful for engineering use.
