This study was aimed at analysing performance of models for radiocesium migration mainly in evergreen coniferous forest in Fukushima, by inter-comparison between models of several research teams. The exercise included two scenarios of countermeasures against the contamination, namely removal of soil surface litter and forest renewal, and a specific konara oak forest scenario in addition to the evergreen forest scenario. All the models reproduced trend of time evolution of radiocesium inventories and concentrations in each of the components in forest such as leaf and organic soil layer. However, the variations between models enlarged in long-term predictions over 50 years after the fallout, meaning continuous field monitoring and model verification/validation is necessary.

We investigate the axial $$U(1)$$ anomaly of two-flavor QCD at temperatures 190-330 MeV. In order to preserve precise chiral symmetry on the lattice, we employ the M$"o$bius domain-wall fermion action as well as overlap fermion action implemented with a stochastic reweighting technique. Compared to our previous studies, we reduce the lattice spacing to 0.07 fm, simulate larger multiple volumes to estimate finite size effect, and take more than four quark mass points, including one below physical point to investigate the chiral limit. We measure the topological susceptibility, axial $$U(1)$$ susceptibility, and examine the degeneracy of $$U(1)$$ partners in meson/baryon correlators. All the data above the critical temperature indicate that the axial $$U(1)$$ violation is consistent with zero within statistical errors. The quark mass dependence suggests disappearance of the $$U(1)$$ anomaly at a rate comparable to that of the $$SU(2)_L times SU(2)_R$$ symmetry breaking.

Axial U(1) symmetry and mesonic correlators at high temperature in $$N_f=2$$ lattice QCD

Suzuki, Kei; Aoki, Sinya*; Aoki, Yasumichi*; Cossu, G.*; Fukaya, Hidenori*; Hashimoto, Shoji*; Rohrhofer, C.*

Proceedings of Science (Internet), 363, 7 Pages, 2020/08

We investigate the high-temperature phase of QCD using lattice QCD simulations with $$N_f=2$$ dynamical M$"o$bius domain-wall fermions. On generated configurations, we study the axial $$U(1)$$ symmetry, overlap-Dirac spectra, screening masses from mesonic correlators, and topological susceptibility. We find that some of the observables are quite sensitive to lattice artifacts due to a small violation of the chiral symmetry. For those observables, we reweight the M$"o$bius domain-wall fermion determinant by that of the overlap fermion. We also check the volume dependence of observables. Our data near the chiral limit indicates a strong suppression of the axial $$U(1)$$ anomaly at temperatures $$geq$$ 220 MeV.

Symmetries of the light hadron spectrum in high temperature QCD

Rohrhofer, C.*; Aoki, Yasumichi*; Cossu, G.*; Fukaya, Hidenori*; Gattringer, C.*; Glozman, L. Ya.*; Hashimoto, Shoji*; Lang, C. B.*; Suzuki, Kei

Proceedings of Science (Internet), 363, 7 Pages, 2020/08

Properties of QCD matter change significantly around the chiral crossover temperature, and the effects on $$U(1)_A$$ and topological susceptibilities, as well as the meson spectrum have been studied with much care. Baryons and the effect of parity doubling in this temperature range have been analyzed previously by various other groups employing different setups. Here we construct suitable operators to investigate chiral and axial $$U(1)_A$$ symmetries in the baryon spectrum. Measurements for different volumes and quark-masses are done with two flavors of chirally symmetric domain-wall fermions at temperatures above the critical one. The possibility of emergent $$SU(4)$$ and $$SU(2)_{CS}$$ symmetries is discussed.

We found anomalously large yields of $$^{67}$$Ga, $$^{66}$$Ga, $$^{rm 69m}$$Zn and $$^{64}$$Cu by neutron irradiation on a $$^{68}$$ZnO sample in a polyethylene shield. Neutron beams are generated from the $$^{9}$$Be($$d,n$$) reaction for 50 MeV deuterons. The yields obtained were more than 20 times larger than those in the unshielded sample. On the other hand, the yields of $$^{67}$$Ga, $$^{66}$$Ga, $$^{rm 69m}$$Zn and $$^{64}$$Cu from a metallic $$^{68}$$Zn sample and the yields of $$^{67}$$Cu, $$^{65}$$Ni and $$^{65}$$Zn from the $$^{68}$$ZnO and $$^{68}$$Zn samples were almost insensitive to the shield conditions. This finding would provide us a unique capability of accelerator neutrons to simultaneously produce a large amount of several radioisotopes, including proton induced reaction products, by using a single sample. The experimental data were compared with the yields estimated by using the Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System and the result was discussed.

$$^{99m}$$Tc for medical use can be separated by thermochromatography from a molten $$^{99}$$MoO$$_{3}$$ sample. Effect of moist oxygen gas on the $$^{99m}$$Tc release from molten $$^{99}$$MoO$$_{3}$$ samples was investigated using a $$^{99}$$Mo/$$^{99m}$$Tc generator. $$^{99}$$Mo was produced with $$^{100}$$Mo(n,2n)$$^{99}$$Mo. A new phenomenon has been observed: release rate, separation- and recovery-efficiencies of $$^{99m}$$Tc were higher in the moist oxygen gas than those in the dry oxygen gas. The present result is a significant progress towards the stable production of a high quality $$^{99m}$$Tc from a molten MoO$$_{3}$$ sample with high separation efficiency. The result would also give us a new insight into the interaction between the moist oxygen gas and the molten MoO$$_{3}$$.

We have for the first time succeeded to separate $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc from a Mo oxide sample irradiated by accelerator neutrons, and to formulate $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc-methylene diphosphonate ($$^{rm 99m}$$Tc-MDP). $$^{99}$$Mo, the mother nuclide of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc, was produced by the $$^{100}$$Mo($textit{n}$,2$textit{n}$)$$^{99}$$Mo reaction using about 14 MeV neutrons provided at the Fusion Neutronics Source of Japan Atomic Energy Agency. The $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc was separated from $$^{99}$$Mo by the sublimation method, and its radionuclide purity was confirmed to be higher than 99.99%. The labeling efficiency of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc-MDP was shown to be higher than 99%. These values exceed the United States Pharmacopeia requirements for a fission product, $$^{99}$$Mo. Consequently, a $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc radiopharmaceutical preparation formed by using the mentioned $$^{99}$$Mo can be a promising substitute for the fission product $$^{99}$$Mo. A longstanding problem to ensure a reliable and constant supply of $$^{99}$$Mo in Japan can be partially mitigated.

Applicability of Mo adsorbent PZC(Poly Zirconium Compound) for $$^{188}$$W/$$^{188}$$Re generator was investigated. Long term stability of adsorption of $$^{188}$$W to the PZC column, elution of $$^{188}$$Re from PZC column, desorption of $$^{188W}$$ from PZC column, and labeling of Hydroxyethylidene Diphosphonic Acid(HEDP) and Mercaptoacetyltriglycine(MAG3) with $$^{188}$$Re eluted from PZC column were tested. The PZC generator gave reproducible $$^{188}$$Re elution yields with low $$^{188}$$W parent breakthrough for a long period of time(about 5 months), that is the $$^{188}$$W/$$^{188}$$Re generator using PZC has a potential for practical use.

The $$beta^{-}$$ emitter $$^{177}$$Lu is a promising therapeutic radioisotope for the treatment of cancer. It has a half-life of 6.73 days and maximum $$beta^{-}$$ energy of 498 keV, resulting in a short range of radiation in tissue. The decay is accompanied by the emission of low energy $$gamma$$-radiation with $$E_{gamma}$$ = 208 keV (11.0%) and 113 keV (6.4%) suitable for simultaneous imaging. Lutetium-177 can be usually produced at nuclear reactors with high yield and high specific radioactivity by the $$^{176}$$Lu(n,$$gamma$$)$$^{177}$$Lu reaction. However, radioisotopes with higher specific radioactivity are required in the field of radioimmunotherapy using labeled monoclonal antibodies. Thus, an alternative production route, namely the $$^{176}$$Yb(n,$$gamma$$)$$^{177}$$Yb $$rightarrow$$ $$^{177}$$Lu process was studied to produce no-carrier-added (nca) $$^{177}$$Lu in this work. The radiochemical separation of the nca $$^{177}$$Lu from the macroscopic ytterbium target was investigated by means of reversed-phase ion-pair HPLC. The nca $$^{177}$$Lu was obtained in radiochemical pure form with a separation yield of 80%.

Desulfurization reaction of high sulfur content flue gas treated by electron beam

Hirosawa, Shojiro*; Kojima, Takuji; Hashimoto, Shoji; Suzuki, Ryoji*; Aoki, Shinji*

Radioisotopes, 51(8), p.285 - 295, 2002/08

Experiments of flue gas treatment by electron beam were carried out, using simulated lignite-burning flue gas containing SO$$_{2}$$(5500ppm), NO(390ppm) and H$$_{2}$$O(22%). Removal efficiency of SO$$_{2}$$ was more than 90% at a dose of 1-2kGy. It shows applicability of electron beam for treatment of lignite-burning flue gas. Another removal reaction besides the radiation-induced radical reaction and the thermal reaction occurring without irradiation was suggested by the facts that removal of SO$$_{2}$$ by the radical reaction is only a few hundreds of ppm and the removal amounts by thermal reaction under irradiation is lower than a half of total desulfurization. The mechanism similar to thermal reaction was proposed, assuming simultaneous uptake reaction of SO$$_{2}$$ and NH$$_{3}$$ on the surface of liquid aerosol. It was suggested that ammonium nitrate having deliquescence relative humidity(DRH) of 60% at 25$$^{circ}C$$ plays an important role in producing liquid aerosols. Decrease of DRH of ammonium nitrate with increasing temperature and with formation of double salt of ammonium sulfate results in enhancement of formation of liquid aerosols.
