We are developing a neutron polarizer with polarized $$^3$$He gas, referred to as a $$^3$$He spin filter, based on the Spin Exchange Optical Pumping (SEOP) for polarized neutron scattering experiments at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). A $$^3$$He gas-filling station was constructed at J-PARC, and several $$^3$$He cells with long spin relaxation times have been fabricated using the gas-filling station. A laboratory has been prepared in the MLF beam hall for polarizing $$^3$$He cells, and compact pumping systems with laser powers of 30 W and 110 W, which can be installed onto a neutron beamline, have been developed. A $$^3$$He polarization of 85% was achieved at a neutron beamline by using the pumping system with the 110 W laser. Recently, the first user experiment utilizing the $$^3$$He spin filter was conducted, and there have been several more since then. The development and utilization of $$^3$$He spin filters at MLF of J-PARC are reported.

日本の中性子散乱施設の特徴のひとつとして、循環型冷凍機のように頻繁に使われる試料環境(SE)機器は各装置の担当者が整備していることが挙げられる。装置担当者は、ユーザー実験の際、装置自体だけでなく、これらのSE機器の運用も行う。このような運用には、SE機器を装置にあわせて最適化できユーザーの要求を直接きくことができるというメリットがある。一方で、MLFのSEチームは、より高度なSE機器を使った実験を可能にするため、共通のSE機器を整備している。本レポートでは、最近のMLFにおけるSE機器の現状が紹介される。中性子装置BL11, BL19, BL21, BL17で用いられるSE機器と、SEチームによって最近整備された機器に焦点をあてる。

The electron-doped SrTiO$$_{3}$$ exhibits good thermoelectric properties, which makes this material a promising candidate of an n-type oxide thermoelectric device. Recent studies indicated that only a few percent co-doping of La and Mn in SrTiO$$_{3}$$ substantially reduces the thermal conductivity, thereby greatly improving the thermoelectric figure of merit at room temperature. Our time-of-flight neutron scattering studies revealed that by doping both La and Mn into SrTiO$$_{3}$$, the inelastic scattering spectrum shows a momentum-independent increase in the low-energy spectral weight approximately below 10 meV. The increase in the low-energy spectral weight exhibits a clear correlation with thermal conductivity. The correlation is attributed to dynamical and local structural fluctuations caused by the Jahn-Teller instability in Mn$$^{3+}$$ ions coupled with the incipient ferroelectric nature of SrTiO$$_{3}$$, as the origin of the low thermal conductivity.

We derive an alternative equation of magnetic pair distribution function (mPDF) related to the mPDF equation given in a preceding study (B. A. Frandsen, X. Yang, and S. J. L. Billinge, Acta Crystallogr. A, ${bf70}$, 3 (2014)) for quantitative analysis of realistic experimental data. The additional term related to spontaneous magnetization included in the equation is particularly important for the mPDF analysis of ferromagnetic materials. Quantitative estimation of mPDF from neutron diffraction data is also shown. The experimental mPDFs estimated from the neutron diffraction data of the ferromagnet MnSb and the antiferromagnet MnF$$_2$$ are quantitatively consistent with the mPDFs calculated using the presented equation.

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)物質・生命科学実験施設の核破砕中性子源では、冷中性子用減速材として液体水素を用いている。2015年1月頃から液体水素を生成するヘリウム冷凍機において、熱交換器及び80 K活性炭吸着器(ADS)の差圧が上昇する事象が現れ始め、2015年11月には冷却性能の低下を引き起こすまでに進展した。この不具合の原因を究明するために冷凍機内の目視確認や循環ヘリウム中の不純物分析を行った。原因となる不純物は検出できなかったが、配管内にわずかに油の痕跡があった。他施設の同規模の冷凍能力を持つ冷凍機の不具合事例も参考にして、熱交換器の洗浄やADSの交換を行った結果、冷却性能は回復した。熱交換器を洗浄した液やADSの活性炭とそれを抑えるためのフェルトから油を検出した。特にADSのフェルトではヘリウムガス入口表面に膜状の油の蓄積が確認できた。ヘリウムガス中に含まれる油分は設計範囲の10ppb程度であったが、長期間の運転の結果、ADSのフェルト部への蓄積により差圧を発生させ、それが性能劣化をもたらした可能性があると推測している。今後さらに調査を進め、原因をより明確にする必要がある。

We have performed powder neutron diffraction on the half-metallic ferromagnet CrO$$_2$$ which has a rutile-type crystal structure with a tetragonal unit cell. Although the powder diffraction pattern can be fitted by the reported crystal structure including a single Cr site, the atomic pair distribution function (PDF) can be fitted by the structural model with an orthorhombic unit cell including two kinds of inequivalent Cr sites. The difference between the valences of the two inequivalent Cr sites, $$delta$$ of Cr$$^{+4pmdelta}$$, estimated from the local structural parameters is about 0.06. The shapes of the two CrO$$_6$$ octahedra are slightly different, suggesting the short-range orbital ordering of the Cr 3$$d$$ orbitals. The lattice distortion and the improvement of the fitting to the PDF obtained using the locally distorted structure model are apparent in the region below about 10 ${AA}$, suggesting that the domain size or correlation length of the locally distorted structure is about 10 ${AA}$, roughly corresponding to the size of two unit cells.

In strongly correlated electron systems, enhanced fluctuations in the proximity of the ordered states of electronic degrees of freedom often induce anomalous electronic properties such as unconventional superconductivity. While spin fluctuations in the energy-momentum space have been studied widely using inelastic neutron scattering, other degrees of freedom, i.e., charge and orbital, have hardly been explored thus far. Here, we use resonant inelastic X-ray scattering to observe charge fluctuations proximate to the charge-order phase in transition metal oxides. In the two-leg ladder of Sr$$_{14-x}$$Ca$$_x$$Cu$$_{24}$$O$$_{41}$$, charge fluctuations are enhanced at the propagation vector of the charge order ($$mathbf{q}_mathrm{CO}$$) when the order is melted by raising the temperature or by doping holes. In contrast, charge fluctuations are observed not only at $$mathbf{q}_mathrm{CO}$$ but also at other momenta in a geometrically frustrated triangular bilayer lattice of LuFe$$_2$$O$$_4$$. The observed charge fluctuations have a high energy ($$sim$$ 1 eV), suggesting that the Coulomb repulsion between electrons plays an important role in the formation of the charge order.

We observed all-in type Nb tetrahedral displacement in nonmagnetic pyrochlore niobates A$$_{2}$$Nb$$_{2}$$O$$_{7}$$ (A = Nd$$_{0.5}$$Ca$$_{0.5}$$ and Y$$_{0.5}$$Ca$$_{0.5}$$) through the analysis of the neutron pair distribution function and the extended X-ray absorption function spectroscopy. The all-in type Nb tetrahedral displacement, which has the character of a charge singlet state, is driven by the formation of the bonding orbital. The diffuse scattering in the X-ray diffraction, which has the resonant component in the Nb $$L$$3 edge, indicates that the all-in type Nb tetrahedral displacement has the periodicity with its short-range correlation.

Cubic spinel compound LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$ with the mixed valence of Mn$$^{3.5+}$$ has non-metallic conductivity. The local structure determined by the PDF analysis has an orthorhombic lattice distortion and includes inequivalent Mn$$^{3+}$$ and Mn$$^{4+}$$ sites. YBaCo$$_2$$O$$_5$$ also exhibits non-metallic conductivity although the Co has the mixed valence of +2.5 above 220 K which corresponds with charge ordering temperature. The PDF obtained at 450 K is not reproduced by the PDF calculated for the averaged structure and can be reproduced by the PDF calculated for the structure model corresponding to the charge ordering state. These results suggest that the valence electrons are localized with short-range periodicity, resulting in the non-metallic conductivities in these materials.

ハイドロゲル中の水の構造や特性を調べるため、100-300Kにおける低含水率のポリN,N,-ジメチルアクリルアミドハイドロ(PDMAA)ゲルの中性子回折パターンを測定した。低温下で観察されたブロードな回折パターンは昇温過程において変化し、220Kにおいて鋭いピークが観察された。これらの回折パターンを解析することにより、低含水率のゲル中には低温下でアモルファス氷が存在し、それらは昇温と共に立方晶氷, 六方晶氷に変化することを明らかにした。

Local structural analysis by using atomic pair distribution function on mixed valence compound LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$

樹神 克明; 井川 直樹; 社本 真一; 池田 一貴*; 大下 英敏*; 金子 直勝*; 大友 季哉*; 鈴谷 賢太郎; 星川 晃範*; 石垣 徹*

LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$ has a cubic spinel structure with a single Mn site whose valence is +3.5. Below about 260 K, the compound exhibits a charge ordering and has inequivalent Mn sites with valences of +3 and +4. However, even in the cubic phase without the charge ordering, temperature dependence of the electrical conductivity is non-metallic. We have performed PDF (atomic pair distribution function) analysis on powder neutron diffraction data of LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$ obtained above 300 K where the compound has cubic structure. The local structure determined by PDF analysis has an orthorhombic lattice distortion and includes the inequivalent Mn sites with valences of +3 and +4 up to, at least, about 450 K. These results indicate that valence electrons are localized at Mn sites with short range periodicity, resulting in the non-metallic electrical conductivity. It can be regarded as a glass state of valence electrons whereas a charge ordering can be regarded as a crystallization of valence electrons.

High-temperature (high-$$T_{rm c}$$) superconductivity appears as a consequence of the carrier-doping of an undoped parent compound exhibiting antiferromagnetic order; thereby, ground-state properties of the parent compound are closely relevant to the superconducting state. On the basis of the concept, a spin-fluctuation has been addressed as an origin of pairing of the superconducting electrons in cuprates. Whereas, there is growing interest in the pairing mechanism such as an unconventional spin-fluctuation or an advanced orbital-fluctuation due to the characteristic multi-orbital system in iron-pnictides. Here, we report the discovery of an antiferromagnetic order as well as a unique structural transition in electron-overdoped LaFeAsO$$_{1-x}$$H$$_x$$ ($$x sim 0.5$$), whereby another parent phase was uncovered, albeit heavily doped. The unprecedented two-dome superconducting phases observed in this material can be interpreted as a consequence of the carrier-doping starting from the original at $$x sim 0$$ and advanced at $$x sim 0.5$$ parent phases toward the intermediate region. The bipartite parent phases with distinct physical properties in the second magnetic phase provide us with an interesting example to illustrate the intimate interplay among the magnetic interaction, structural change and orbital degree of freedom in iron-pnictides.

Local lattice distortion caused by short range charge ordering in LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$

樹神 克明; 井川 直樹; 社本 真一; 池田 一貴*; 大下 英敏*; 金子 直勝*; 大友 季哉*; 鈴谷 賢太郎

We have performed powder neutron diffraction on $$^7$$LiMn$$_2$$O$$_4$$ at 300 K. The crystal structure determined by Rietveld analysis is a cubic spinel with space group of $$Fdbar{3}m$$ in which all Mn atoms are crystallograghically equivalent, consistent with many preceding studies. However, the atomic pair distribution function (PDF) of this compound cannot be fitted by the cubic structure satisfactorily, and it can be reproduced by the orthorhombic structure with $$Fddd$$. It corresponds with the structure of charge ordered phase below about 260 K, indicating a short range charge ordering. In the local structure determined by PDF analysis, two types of MnO$$_6$$ octahedra with long and short atomic distances between Mn and O atoms exist and their Mn-O distances are almost consistent with the distances in the charge ordered phase. From these results, valence electrons are localized at Mn sites like a glass even in the cubic phase, resulting in the non-metallic electrical conductivity.
