Negative muonium atom ($$mu^+$$e$$^-$$e$$^-$$, Mu$$^-$$) has unique features stimulating potential interesting for several scientific fields. Since its discovery in late 1980's in vacuum, it has been discussed that the production efficiency would be improved using a low-work function material. C12A7 was a well-known insulator as a constituent of alumina cement, but was recently confirmed to exhibit electric conductivity by electron doping. The C12A7 electride has relatively low-work function (2.9 eV). In this paper, the negative muonium production measurement with several materials including a C12A7 electride film will be presented. Measured production rate of the Mu$$^-$$ were 10$$^{-3}$$/s for all the Al, electride, and SUS target. Significant enhancement on electride target was not observed, thus it is presumed that the surface condition should be more carefully treated. There was no material dependence of the Mu$$^-$$ averaged energy: it was 0.2$$pm$$0.1keV.

Level structure of the $$^{12}_{Lambda}$$C hypernucleus was precisely determined by means of $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy. We identified four $$gamma$$-ray transitions via the $$^{12}$$C$$(pi^{+},K^{+}gamma)$$ reaction using a germanium detector array, Hyperball2. The spacing of the ground-state doublet $$(2^{-}, 1^{-}_{1})$$ was measured to be $$161.5pm0.3$$(stat)$$pm0.3$$ (syst)keV from the direct $$M1$$ transition. Excitation energies of the $$1^{-}_{2}$$ and $$1^{-}_{3}$$ states were measured to be $$2832pm3pm4$$, keV and $$6050pm8pm7$$, keV, respectively. The obtained level energies provide definitive references for the reaction spectroscopy of $$Lambda$$ hypernuclei.

Takeuchi, Kenji; Sanyoshi, Hirotaka; Fukuari, Yoshihiro; Inami, Shinichi

Proceedings of 7th International Conference on NDE in relation to Structural Integrity for Nuclear and Pressurized Components (CD-ROM), p.37 - 44, 2010/00

In the Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP), lots of blowers are used for enclosing radioactive materials in a controlled area, and pumps are used for circulating cooling water to keep temperature under appropriate conditions of vessels, which contain high-level radioactive liquid waste. These rotating equipments play an important role in safety management of the nuclear facilities, where they are required stable conditions all the time. To improve the reliability of rotating equipments, the condition based maintenance for detecting the deterioration is one of the effective measures. According to the analyses of the past maintenance data obtained in TRP, it has been found that about 90% troubles related to the rotating equipment are caused in the bearing works, in which the lubrication was defective in almost every case. So, it is very important for stable operation of the rotating equipment to monitor the lubrication conditions in bearings. The vibration method facilitates to detect defects and abrasion of bearings by measuring a vibration signal. However, this method has a disadvantage that quantitative management for the lubrication conditions of bearings is not possible. Therefore, the shock pulse method, which is widely used for diagnosis of the bearings, is applied to assess the deterioration of rolling bearing. The shock pulse method can detect the change of the lubrication condition and the presence of defects in bearings, by a pressure wave generated from rotating rolling bearing. The method can also evaluate the oil slick thickness and the condition of deterioration in the bearing. As one of maintenance activities performed after monitoring, replenishment with a suitable amount of oil for a lubricant was able to be conducted with a proper timing. As a result, the number of the troubles on bearings has significantly reduced because proper maintenance for keeping the oil slick thickness can be carried out, which resulted in stable operation of the rotary equipmen

X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) at the Eu L edge in two compounds exhibiting valence fluctuation, namely EuNi$$_2$$(Si$$_{0.18}$$Ge$$_{0.82}$$)$$_2$$ and EuNi$$_2$$P$$_2$$, has been investigated at high magnetic fields of up to 40T. A distinct XMCD peak corresponding to the trivalent state (Eu$$^{3+}$$), whose ground state is nonmagnetic (J = 0), was observed in addition to the main XMCD peak corresponding to the magnetic (J = 7/2) divalent state (Eu$$^{2+}$$). This result indicates that the 5$$d$$ electrons belonging to both valence states are magnetically polarized. It was also found that the ratio $$P$$$$_{5d}$$(3+)/$$P$$$$_{5d}$$(2+) between the polarization of 5$$d$$ electrons($$P$$$$_{5d}$$) in the Eu$$^{3+}$$ state and that of Eu$$^{2+}$$ depends on the material. The possible origin of the XMCD and an explanation of the material dependence of $$P$$$$_{5d}$$(3+)/$$P$$$$_{5d}$$(2+) are discussed in terms of hybridization between the conduction electrons and the f electrons.

So far no standard procedure for the positron annihilation lifetime (PAL) technique has been established. A lack of the standards has led to difficulty in ensuring the equivalency and reliability of data from different laboratories. As a first, we conducted an interlaboratory comparison of PAL measurements for metal, polymer and silica glass with agreed procedures for data recording and analysis. The PAL data recorded at different laboratories were analyzed with a single lifetime component for the metal sample and with three components for the others, respectively. Based on the results of the reported positron and ortho-positronium lifetimes, the possible sources of the uncertainties in the PAL measurements are discussed. To reduce the effect of scattered $$gamma$$ rays, a lead shield was placed between the detectors. The uncertainty was significantly decreased, signifying that placing lead shields between the detectors effectively reduced the false signals due to the scattered $$gamma$$ rays.

The magnetic-field-induced valence transition in EuNi$$_2$$(Si$$_{1-x}$$Ge$$_x$$)$$_2$$ (x=0.82, 0.85) has been studied by X-ray absorption spectroscopy at low temperatures. The field dependence of the Eu valence is directly observed for the first time. We find a significant decrease in the valences at high magnetic fields above 40 T. The valence of Eu changes from v = 2.75 at a zero field to v = 2.33 at 40 T for x = 0.82. The results are analyzed using a theoretical model. The hybridization parameter V between the Eu$$^{2+}$$ and Eu$$^{3+}$$ states and the energy separation $$Delta$$$$E$$ are determined, which are crucial for quantum mechanical mixing.

JAEA-Research 2007-077, 126 Pages, 2007/09


To understand the size and state of EDZ is one of the problems in the technological development for geological disposal of HLW. AE which is measured directly and evaluate EDZ is paid to attention inside and outside the country, and the utility is reported for the crystalline rock. However, there are few cases to measure AE in sedimentary soft rocks because of the difficulty to acknowledge a few AE waves with small energy. The author consulted AE properties of Horonobe siliceous rocks from laboratory tests and evaluated size and state of EDZ from numerical analysis.

Mito, Yoshitada*; Chang, C. S.*; Aoki, Kenji*; Matsui, Hiroya; Niunoya, Sumio; Minami, Masayuki*

Proceedings of 11th Congress of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM 2007), Vol.1, p.273 - 276, 2007/08

In order to examine the relationship between AE, stress change and rock failure, the authors conducted the high stiffness triaxial compression tests including AE measurements, and its simulations by DEM (Distinct Element Method) using the bonded particle model. As the result, it is clarified that predominant AE frequency is a significant AE parameters to monitor the stress change in fracturing process of soft sedimentary rocks. After that, the DEM simulation of the triaxial compression test using the bonded particles model is conducted to visualize the fracturing process in the rock specimen. As the results, the relationship between AE, stress change and rock failure is clarified. Furthermore the three-dimensional DEM simulation under the in-situ stress condition provides a successful result to examine the borehole breakout observed in the actual deep borehole in the soft sedimentary rock, and the applicability of the simulation to the actual field is verified.

(La,Sr,Ca)$$_{14}$$Cu$$_{24}$$O$$_{41}$$ is an attractive material in connection with high-$$T_{rm c}$$ superconductivity because Sr$$_{0.4}$$Ca$$_{13.6}$$Cu$$_{24}$$O$$_{41}$$ becomes a superconductor under high pressure without the CuO$$_2$$ planes. We present RIXS at the Cu $$K$$-edge of (La,Sr,Ca)$$_{14}$$Cu$$_{24}$$O$$_{41}$$ focusing on the momentum dependence of interband excitation across the Mott gap and the intraband excitation below the gap as a function of hole concentration. The experimental results are consistent with the theoretical predictions.

Inami, Toshiya; Homma, Tetsuo*; Tsutsui, Satoshi*; Indo, Kentaro*; Onodera, Hideya*; Ishii, Kenji; Owada, Kenji; Kuzushita, Kaori*; Nakao, Hironori*; Murakami, Yoichi*

Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 310(2, Part1), p.748 - 750, 2007/03

We investigated successive phase transitions in SmB$$_2$$C$$_2$$ at $$T_{rm N2}$$=37K and $$T_{rm N1}$$=51K by means of resonant X-ray diffraction. Strong resonant diffraction signal is observed at the 101 reflection below $$T_{rm N2}$$ at the Sm $$L_3$$ edge, whereas in the intermediate phase signals appear at incommensurate positions $${vec Q}$$=(1$$pmdelta$$, $$pmdelta$$,1) where $$delta$$=0.13. Accordingly, the successive phase transitions in SmB$$_2$$C$$_2$$ is found to be commensurate-to-incommensurate magnetic phase transitions.
