Kondo, Yasuhiro; Hasegawa, Kazuo; Higashi, Yasuo*; Kumada, Hiroaki*; Kurokawa, Shinichi*; Matsumoto, Hiroshi*; Naito, Fujio*; Yoshioka, Masakazu*

Proceedings of 12th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.948 - 950, 2015/09

An accelerator based boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) facility is being planned at Okinawa institute of science and technology (OIST). The proton accelerator consists of a radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) linac and a drift tube linac (DTL). The reqired beam power is 60 kW. The present beam energy and current are 10 MeV and 30 mA, respectively. The pulse length is 3.3 ms and the repetition rate is 60 Hz, therefore, the duty factor is 20%. In this paper, present designof this compact, midium current, high duty proton linac is presented.

Neutron Irradiation and Testing Reactor Center has developed the production of a medical isotope of $$^{99}$$Mo, the parent nuclide of $$^{99m}$$Tc by the (n,$$gamma$$) method using JMTR. The (n,$$gamma$$) method has an advantage of easy manufacturing process and low radioactive wastes generation. However, the low radioactivity concentration of $$^{99m}$$Tc is remaining as an issue. Therefore, PZC and PTC have been developed as adsorbent of molybdenum. Meanwhile, it is necessary to recycle the absorbent and Mo for the reduction of the radioactive waste of used-adsorbent and the effective use of limited resources, respectively. This report summarizes results of the synthesis of Mo adsorbents such as PZC and PTC, and the performance tests.

Mo recycling property from generator materials with irradiated molybdenum

Kakei, Sadanori*; Kimura, Akihiro; Niizeki, Tomotake*; Ishida, Takuya; Nishikata, Kaori; Kurosawa, Makoto; Yoshinaga, Hideo*; Hasegawa, Yoshio*; Tsuchiya, Kunihiko

Proceedings of 6th International Symposium on Material Testing Reactors (ISMTR-6) (Internet), 7 Pages, 2013/10

The Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR) is expected to contribute to the expansion of industrial utilization, such as the domestic production of $$^{99}$$Mo for the medical diagnosis medicine $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc. Production by the (n, $$gamma$$) method is proposed as domestic $$^{99}$$Mo production in JMTR because of the low amount of radioactive wastes and the easy $$^{99}$$Mo/$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc production process. Molybdenum oxide (MoO$$_{3}$$) pellets, poly zirconium compounds (PZC) and poly titanium compounds (PTC) are used as the irradiation target and generator for the production of $$^{99}$$Mo/$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc by the (n, $$gamma$$) method. However, it is necessary to use the enriched $$^{98}$$MoO$$_{3}$$, which is very expensive, to increase the specific activity of $$^{99}$$Mo. Additionally, a large amount of used PZC and PTC is generated after the decay of $$^{99}$$Mo. Therefore, this recycling technology of used PZC/PTC has been developed to recover molybdenum (Mo) as an effective use of resources and a reduction of radioactive wastes. The total Mo recovery rate of this process was 95.8%. From the results of the hot experiments, we could demonstrate that the recovery of MoO$$_{3}$$ and the recycling of PZC are possible. In the future, the equipment of recovering Mo will be installed in JMTR-Hot Cell, and this recycling process will be able to contribute to the reduction of production costs of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc and the reduction of radioactive wastes.

Development of $$^{99}$$Mo-$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc domestic production with high-density MoO$$_{3}$$ pellets by (n,$$gamma$$) reaction

Tsuchiya, Kunihiko; Tanase, Masakazu*; Takeuchi, Nobuhiro*; Kobayashi, Masaaki*; Hasegawa, Yoshio*; Yoshinaga, Hideo*; Kaminaga, Masanori; Ishihara, Masahiro; Kawamura, Hiroshi

Proceedings of 5th International Symposium on Material Testing Reactors (ISMTR-5) (Internet), 10 Pages, 2012/10

As one of effective uses of the JMTR, JAEA has a plan to produce $$^{99}$$Mo by (n, $$gamma$$) method, a parent nuclide of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc. In case of Japan, the supplying of $$^{99}$$Mo depends only on imports from foreign countries. The R&D on production method of $$^{99}$$Mo -$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc has been performed with Japanese industrial users under the cooperation programs. The main R&D items for the production are (1) Fabrication of irradiation target such as the sintered MoO$$_{3}$$ pellets, (2) Separation and concentration of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc by the solvent extraction from Mo solution, (3) Examination of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc solution for a medicine, and (4) Mo recycling from Mo generator and solution. In this paper, the status of the R&D is introduced for the production of $$^{99}$$Mo -$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc.

Effect of carbon nanofiber dispersion on the properties of PIP-SiC/SiC composites

Taguchi, Tomitsugu; Hasegawa, Yoshio*; Shamoto, Shinichi

Journal of Nuclear Materials, 417(1-3), p.348 - 352, 2011/10

The SiC/SiC composites with and without dispersed carbon nanofiber were fabricated by polymer impregnation and pyrolysis process. The effect of dispersing with 6 vol.% carbon nanofiber on the mechanical and thermal properties of SiC/SiC composites was investigated. The bending strength and elastic modulus of SiC/SiC composites with carbon nanofiber decreased slightly compared to those of the SiC/SiC composites without carbon nanofiber. On the other hand, the thermal conductivity of SiC/SiC composites increased with increasing the amount of dispersed carbon nanofiber. The dominant reason is considered that the pore shape changed from oblong shape vertical to direction of heat flow to isotropic shape by dispersing carbon nanofiber.

PZC (Poly-Zirconium Compound) was developed as adsorbent of molybdenum for $$^{99}$$Mo-$$^{rm 99m}$$Tc generator. However, PZC has some faults. So, new adsorbent based on titanium (PTC), was developed for getting rid of faults. This time, $$^{99}$$Mo adsorption and $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc elution tests with PZC and PTC were carried out. As a result, the $$^{99}$$Mo adsorption performance of the PTC was lower than PZC, on the other hand, $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc elution performance of the PTC was higher than PZC.

Vacuum brazing of the new RFQ for the J-PARC linac

Morishita, Takatoshi; Kondo, Yasuhiro; Hasegawa, Kazuo; Naito, Fujio*; Yoshioka, Masakazu*; Matsumoto, Hiroshi*; Hori, Yoichiro*; Kawamata, Hiroshi*; Saito, Yoshio*; Baba, Hiroshi*

Proceedings of 25th International Linear Accelerator Conference (LINAC 2010) (CD-ROM), p.521 - 523, 2010/09

The fabrication of a new RFQ has been started as a backup machine for the J-PARC linac. The RFQ cavity is divided by three unit tanks in the longitudinal direction. The unit tank consists of two major vanes and two minor vanes, those are brazed together. A one-step vacuum brazing of a unit tank was adopted to unite these four vanes together with the flanges and ports. At the first tank brazing, the vacuum leak has been occurred due to the non-uniform temperature rise during the heating. Repair of this leakage and the results of the improved brazing of the second tank are reported.

Morishita, Takatoshi; Kondo, Yasuhiro; Hasegawa, Kazuo; Kawamata, Hiroshi*; Naito, Fujio*; Yoshioka, Masakazu*; Matsumoto, Hiroshi*; Hori, Yoichiro*; Saito, Yoshio*; Baba, Hiroshi*

Proceedings of 25th International Linear Accelerator Conference (LINAC 2010) (CD-ROM), p.518 - 520, 2010/09

The fabrication of a new RFQ has been started in the J-PARC linac. The RFQ cavity is divided by three unit tanks in the longitudinal direction. The unit tank consists of two major vanes and two minor vanes, those will be brazed together. To reduce the costs and periods to develop the special formed bite for the modulation machining, a numerical controlled machining using a conventional ball-end-mill was adopted for the vane modulation cutting instead of the wheel shape cutter. The dimension accuracy was confirmed by cutting test pieces. Moreover, the obtained surface seems smooth enough for the operation. Results of the ball-end-mill machining for the vanes are described.

The J-PARC RFQ accelerates a negative hydrogen beam from 50 keV to 3 MeV. Beam commissioning of the J-PARC linac started in November 2006 and the linac has delivered beams to the 3 GeV synchrotron since September 2007. Trip rates of the RFQ, however, unexpectedly increased in September 2008. We tried to recover by tender conditioning, improvement of vacuum properties, etc. User operations for the Material and Life Experimental Facilities were successfully carried out at 20 kW in June 2009, and the beam power was increased to 120 kW in November. The high power operation at 300 kW for one hour was also demonstrated. Status and improvement of the J-PARC RFQ are presented.

The J-PARC RFQ (length 3.1 m, 4-vane type, 324 MHz) accelerates a negative hydrogen beam from 0.05 MeV to 3 MeV toward the following DTL. The stability of the operating RFQ decreased for a few months at the end of 2008, then, we started a preparation of a new RFQ as a backup machine in the case of RFQ problem. The beam dynamics design of the new RFQ is the same as the current cavity for a quick resumption of operation, however, the engineering and RF designs are changed to improve stability. The processes of the vane machining and the surface treatments have been carefully considered to reduce the discharge problem. The vacuum brazing technique has been chosen for vane jointing. The design of the new RFQ and the fabrication progress is descried in this proceeding.

The beam commissioning of J-PARC linac has been started since November 2006. After the scheduled shutdown in summer 2007, the beam is successfully delivered from the linac to the RCS. Since then, a stable beam provision was emphasized. However, the trip in the RFQ was increased at the end of Sept. 2008, then, the stability of the beam operation decreased. To improve this situation, we started to prepare a new RFQ cavity as a backup machine. The basic concept of the engineering design is the simplicity and the effective vacuum pumping aiming at the stable operation. A 3m long cavity is divided into 3 modules longitudinally. A numerical control machining with ball-end mill is chosen for a vane machining. Four vanes are vacuum brazed each other after machining. Each modules are aligned on the platform using a linear motion guide. A basic design of the key components on machining and brazing are described in this proceeding.

The J-PARC RFQ (length 3.1m, 4-vane type, 324 MHz) accelerates a beam from the ion source to the DTL. The beam test of the linac was started in November 2006 and 181 MeV beam was successfully accelerated in January 2007. Since then, the linac has been delivered beams for commissioning of the linac itself, downstream accelerators and facilities. Trip rates of the RFQ, however, suddenly increased in Autumn 2008, and we are suffering from this issue for user run operation. We tried to recover by tender conditioning, modification of RF control, improvement of vacuum and so on. We manage to have beam operation. In this report, we describe the status of the RFQ.

The Sol-Gel derived precursor fiber was annealed under hydrogen disulfeid (H$$_{2}$$S) following oxygen atmosphere, Sulfer-doped titanium dioxide (TiO$$_{2}$$) fiber was obtained. Crystal structure of the fiber was identified as anatase phase of TiO$$_{2}$$. The energy band gap of the fiber was narrower by about 0.06 eV than that of anatase, which showed that it could absorb visible light. The fiber contains about 0.58 atomic % of Sulfer, and they located at the oxygen lattice site of TiO$$_{2}$$. Under visible light illumination, the fiber degraded Trichroloethylen (TCE) and produced carbon dioxide (CO$$_{2}$$). This shows Sulfer-doped TiO$$_{2}$$ fiber has the photocatalytic activity under visible light illumination.

This report provides an analysis of the results of the survey conducted among field experts regarding the data on atoms, molecules, and atomic nuclei used in medical applications. The important results are summarized as follows: First, the importance of the basic data for disciplines involved in medical research, i.e. physics and engineering, chemistry, pharmacology, biology, and the related data which are applied directly in medicine were identified. The related data are of greater importance in direct medical application compared to conventional basic data. Therefore, the data related to biology should be prepared in consideration of their convenient usage. Second, regarding the fundamental data on atoms, molecules and atomic nuclei related to medicine, the present data was able to approximately cope with the demands of many medical cases that needed data on quality, quantity, precision, etc. However, we found situations particularly in the IT community where comprehensively organized data was urgently needed. The data to be used for practical implementation must contain the specialized data for medical physics and biology. Finally, the significance of the continuity in the planned completion of the basic data was confirmed for the development of the associated fields. The expansion and completion of basic data should be done continuously and effectively while considering the limitation in resources and manpower.
