In the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex, the purpose of the 3 GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS) is to accelerate a 1 MW, high-intensity proton beam. To achieve beam operation at a repetition rate of 25 Hz at high intensities, the RCS was elaborately designed. After starting the RCS operation, we carefully verified the validity of its design and made certain improvements to establish a reliable operation at higher power as possible. Consequently, we demonstrated beam operation at a high power, namely, 1 MW. We then summarized the design, actual performance, and improvements of the RCS to achieve a 1 MW beam.

In this study, we propose a new degassing method by which only kicker magnets in the accelerator beam line are baked out without raising the temperature of the vacuum chamber to prevent unwanted heat expansion of the chamber. The bake-out system comprises the heater and thermal radiation shield plates, which are installed between the kicker magnet and the chamber wall. The result of the verification test showed that each part of the kicker magnet was heated to above the target temperature with a small rise in the vacuum chamber temperature. A graphite heater was selected in this application to bake-out the kicker magnet in the beam line to ensure reliability and easy maintainability of the heater. The vacuum characteristics of graphite were suitable for heater operation in the beam line. A preliminary heat-up test conducted in the accelerator beam line also showed that each part of the kicker magnet was successfully heated and that heat expansion of the chamber was negligibly small.

The world's first microbeam focusing technology for heavy ions of hundreds MeV accelerated by a cyclotron has been developed at the TIARA facility in the Takasaki Advanced Radiation Research Institute of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. The technology enables us to form a microbeam of less than 1 m in diameter and to shoot a specified point on a target by one ion (single-ion hit) with spatial accuracy of microbeam size. In the course of the development, a cyclotron technology to accelerate a small energy-spread beam of hundres MeV, which is necessary for focusing to 1 m, has been developed as well as a beam focusing apparatus, beam size measurement and so forth based on the several-MeV microbeam/single-ion hit system of the TIARA electrostatic accelerators. Applicability of the technologies was examined by actual use in irradiation experiment and the result were fed back to them. This paper reports the process and the results of the development over ten years.

We previously reported that the magnetic state of FeRh can be controlled by irradiation with ion beams. In this paper, we evaluate possibility of magnetic patterning on FeRh thin films using energetic light ion microbeam irradiation with various shapes and dimensions. Proton microbeam irradiation with 2 MeV was performed at JAEA-Takasaki to produce micron-sized magnetic patterns. XMCD-PEEM observation was performed at SPring8 to confirm the synthesized magnetic patterns. As a result, the XMCD-PEEM images of the various micrometer sized patters in FeRh film were observed using 2 MeV H ion beam. The observed bright regions are considered to have ferromagnetic spin orders, in contrast that the gray areas have anti-ferromagnetic spin order. Since the brightness of the PEEM images is strongly correlated with the magnetization of the samples, we reveal that the magnetic state in local regions of the FeRh thin films can be controlled by changing the ion fluences.

Measurement of beam energy spreads caused by an accelerator are needed to evaluation the choromatic aberration when ion beams with micorometer or nanometer sizes are formed at a focusing point. A measurement method of the beam energy spreads without using a analyzing magnet with a high resolution was developed to evaluate the chromatic aberration in a light-ion micorbeam system connected to the 3MV JAEA single-ended accelerator. The accurate beam energy spread measurement method within a resolution of 10 was developed using resonance nuclear reactions with narrow energy spreads of A(p,)Si and Mg(p,)A in a MeV energy range. Furthermore, ion species separating method, in a 0-degree beam line connected to the accelerator, was developed using parmanent magnets attached on the accelerator tube in the accelerator. The two kinds of developmet resulted in measuring baem energy spreads generated from the accelerator directly.

Actinides recovery was attempted by the simplified solvent extraction process using TBP as an extractant for U, Pu and Np co-recovery and the SETFICS process for Am and Cm recovery with a view to decreasing the environmental impact. Uranium, Pu and Np co-recovery was conducted under the condition with high nitric acid concentration in the feed solution or scrubbing solution. High nitric acid concentration in the feed solution availed to the Np oxidation not only in the feed solution, but also at the extraction section. This oxidation reaction permitted the Np extraction with U and Pu. In the SETFICS process, a TRUEX solvent of 0.2M CMPO/1.4M TBP was employed to increase the loading of metals. In place of sodium nitrate, HAN was applied to this experimental flow sheet for "salt-free" concept. This experiment was succeeded in Am and Cm product. On high-loading flow sheet, the flow rate of aqueous effluents and spent solvent was expected to decrease in 47% and 54%, respectively.

We report on the potential/density fluctuations in the JFT-2M tokamak. We identified a geodesic acoustic mode (GAM) and its electric field structure. The GAM interacts with the background turbulence in consistent with a drift wave - zonal flow theory. The GAM modulates the turbulence, and the suppression depends on the direction and gradient of the flow velocity in consistent with a theory. During the H-mode, the GAM disappears presumably due to the suppression of the turbulence. We analysed the low frequency potential oscillation during the H-mode. A wavelet analysis showed a low frequency characteristic potential fluctuations (several handred kHz), which disappears in the L-mode and at the occurence of ELM. Observed poloidal flow is about 20 times as large as that of the GAM during the H-mode. If the potential has a spatial inhomogineity, there is a possibility that this low frequency fluctuation comes from the EXB flow or the zonal flow.
