The first ionization potential (IP$$_1$$) yields information on valence electronic structure of an atom. IP$$_1$$ values of heavy actinides beyond einsteinium (Es, Z = 99), however, have not been determined experimentally so far due to the difficulty in obtaining these elements on scales of more than one atom at a time. Recently, we successfully measured IP$$_1$$ of lawrencium (Lr, Z = 103) using a surface ionization method. The result suggests that Lr has a loosely-bound electron in the outermost orbital. In contrast to Lr, nobelium (No, Z = 102) is expected to have the highest IP$$_1$$ among the actinide elements owing to its full-filled 5f and the 7s orbitals. In the present study, we have successfully determined IP$$_1$$ values of No as well as fermium (Fm, Z = 100) and mendelevium (Md, Z = 101) using the surface ionization method. The obtained results indicate that the IP$$_1$$ value of heavy actinoids would increase monotonically with filling electrons up in the 5f orbital like heavy lanthanoids.

Ionization efficiency in a surface ionization process depends on the first ionization potential of the atom. Based on the dependence, the ionization potential of the atom can be determined. We measured ionization efficiencies of fermium, einsteinium, mendelevium, and lawrencium by using a newly developed gas-jet coupled surface ion-source. The ionization potential of the elements have not been determined so far due to their low production rates and/or their short half-lives. Based on a relationship between the ionization efficiency and the ionization potential obtained via measurements of short-lived lanthanide isotopes, the ionization potentials of these actinide elements have been successfully determined.

The loss of the retaining split pins (four pieces) for clevis pin were confirmed at the inspection of the pipe supports in the Monju prototype fast-breeder reactor in May, 2014. The split pins (two pieces) of ROD RESTRAINT and CONSTANT HANGER were fallen off. The split pins (two pieces) of MECHANICAL SNUBBER were broken at both ends of them. As a result of investigation, a dimple pattern was observed in a fracture surface of broken split pin. This observation result showed that fracture morphology is ductile fracture. A reproduction test, whether split pin was broken by loading the external force to the clevis pin, also gave the same fracture morphology. As the result of all cause investigation, the reason of the broken split pins is that the split pins were loaded shearing stress by the external force loaded to the clevis pin axial direction. The result of the cause investigation and a recurrence prevention measure of this trouble was be reported by this report.

Ionization efficiency in a surface ionization process depends on the first ionization potential of the atom. Based on the dependence, the ionization potential of the atom can be determined. We successfully measured ionization efficiencies of lawrencium (Lr, $$Z$$=103) using a gas-jet coupled surface ion-source. The ionization potential of Lr has not been determined owing to its low production rate and its short half-life. Based on a relationship between the ionization efficiency and the ionization potential obtained via measurements of short-lived lanthanide isotopes, the ionization potential of Lr was determined.

We have developed a surface-ionization ion-source coupled to the He/CdI$$_2$$ gas-jet transport system for the Isotope Separator On-Line (ISOL) at the JAEA tandem accelerator for experimental determination of the first ionization potential of lawrencium (Lr, $$Z = 103$$). We performed to ionize a short-lived Lr isotope and various lanthanide isotopes. We successfully observed mass-separated ions of $$^{256}$$Lr by using our present system at the first time. The first ionization potential of Lr was evaluated based on a correlation between of effective ionization potential and ionization efficiency of short-lived lanthanide isotopes in our system.

Production cross-sections of the isotope $$^{256}$$Lr in the $$^{249,250,251}$$Cf + $$^{11}$$B, $$^{243}$$Am + $$^{18}$$O, and $$^{248}$$Cm + $$^{14}$$N reactions were measured using a He/KCl gas-jet transport system and a rotating wheel $$alpha$$-particle detection apparatus. The $$alpha$$-particle energy of $$^{256}$$Lr was distributed from 8.3 to 8.7 MeV and its half-life, $$T_{1/2}$$, was measured to be $$28 pm 1$$ s. The maximum cross sections in the $$^{249}$$Cf($$^{11}$$B, 4$$n$$)$$^{256}$$Lr and $$^{243}$$Am($$^{18}$$O, 5$$n$$)$$^{256}$$Lr reactions were determined to be $$122 pm 6$$ nb at the beam energy of 63 MeV and $$26 pm 3$$ nb at 96 MeV, respectively. In the $$^{248}$$Cm($$^{14}$$N, 6$$n$$)$$^{256}$$Lr reaction, the cross section was measured to be $$27 pm 1$$ nb at 91 MeV.

We have developed the surface ion-source coupled to the He/CdI$$_2$$ gas-jet transport system to measure the ionization potential of Lr atatom-at-a-time conditions. We successfully ionized and mass-separated for the first time $$^{256}$$Lr ions by applying the present ion-source and the ISOL technique. The ionization efficiencies of Lr were estimated to be approximately 42% and 24% at 2600 K on Re and Ta surfaces, respectively. These values were higher than those of Lu in all of ionization condition. The results indicate that the ionization potential of Lr would be lower than that of Lu, 5.4 eV. Therefore, it is concluded that the surface ion-source is a promising apparatus tomeasure the first ionization potential of Lr. Using the present system, determination of the ionization potential of Lr is being performed.

The spin-parity and neutron configuration of the ground state of $$^{259}$$No have been identified through $$alpha$$-decay spectroscopy. The $$^{259}$$No is the nucleus with the largest neutron number whose spin-parities and single-particle configurations have ever been identified. The neutron 9/2$$^{+}$$[615] configuration was assigned to the ground state of $$^{259}$$No as well as to the 231.4 keV level in $$^{255}$$Fm. This allowed us to establish energy spacings and order of the neutron single-particle orbitals in such heaviest nuclear region. The appearance of the 9/2$$^{+}$$[615] ground state at $$N$$=157 implies that the order of the neutron orbitals between the $$N$$=152 and 162 deformed shell gaps should change considerably with increasing neutron number.

RIKEN Accelerator Progress Report, Vol.46, P. 237, 2013/00

Due to the strong relativistic effects, the weakly-bound outermost electron results in a significantly low first ionization potential (IP) of Lr as compared with its neighboring heavy actinides. The isotope $$^{256}$$Lr, with a relatively long half-life of 27 s, is the suitable candidates for the IP measurement of Lr through the surface ionization method. In the present study, we measured the cross section of the $$^{248}$$Cm($$^{14}$$N, 6$$n$$)$$^{256}$$Lr reaction to evaluate the production rate of $$^{256}$$Lr. A $$^{248}$$Cm target with 960 $$pm$$ 60 $$mu$$g/cm$$^{2}$$ thickness was bombarded with a $$^{14}$$N$$^{5+}$$ beam from the RIKEN AVF Cyclotron. The beam energy was 91 MeV in the middle of the target. The average beam intensity was 1.2 particle-$$mu$$A. Reaction products were transported to the rotating wheel $$alpha$$-particle detection system with a He/KCl gas-jet system. The $$^{256}$$Lr cross section of 27$$pm$$1 nb was calculated based on the $$alpha$$-particle events between 8.3 and 8.7 MeV.

Excited states in $$^{251}$$Fm populated via the $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{255}$$No are studied in detail through $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$ coincidence and $$alpha$$ fine structure measurements. Spin-parities and neutron configurations of the excited states in $$^{251}$$Fm as well as the ground state of $$^{255}$$No are definitely identified on the basis of deduced internal conversion coefficients, lifetimes of $$gamma$$ transitions, rotational-band energies built on one-quasiparticle states, and hindrance factors of $$alpha$$ transitions. It is found that the excitation energy of the 1/2$$^{+}$$[620] state in $$N$$=151 isotones increases with the atomic number, especially at $$Z$$$$ge$$100, while that of the 1/2$$^{+}$$[631] state decreases at $$Z$$=100. Energy systematics of the one-quasiparticle states in the $$N$$=151 isotones are discussed in terms of the evolution of nuclear deformation involving the hexadecapole and hexacontatetrapole deformations.

Anion-exchange chromatography of element 105, dubnium (Db), produced in the $$^{248}$$Cm($$^{19}$$F, 5n)$$^{262}$$Db reaction is investigated together with the homologues Nb and Ta, and the pseudo-homologue Pa in 13.9 M hydrofluoric acid (HF) solution. The distribution coefficient (K$$_{d}$$) of Db on an anion-exchange resin is successfully determined by running cycles of the 1702 chromatographic column separations. The result clearly indicates that the adsorption of Db on the resin is significantly different from that of the homologues and that the adsorption of anionic fluoro complexes of these elements decreases in the sequence of Ta $$approx$$ Nb $$>$$ Db $$geq$$ Pa.
