We investigated the structure of the crystalline adsorption layer of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in hot water by neutron reflectivity in two cases: when the adsorption layer is exposed on the substrate by leaching the upper bulk layer and when it is deeply embedded between a relatively thick PVA film and substrate. In both cases, the PVA adsorption layer consists of three layers on the Si substrate. The bottom layer, consisting of amorphous chains that are strongly constrained on the substrate, is not swollen even in hot water at 90$$^{circ}$$C. The middle layer, consisting of amorphous chains that are much more mobile compared with those in the bottom layer, has no freedom to assume a crystalline form. Only the molecular chains in the top layer are crystallizable in the adsorption layer, leading to a heterogeneous layered structure in the film thickness direction. This layered structure is attributed to the crystallizable chains of PVA during the formation of the adsorption layer driven by hydrogen bonding. However, the structure and dynamics in the adsorption layer may differ in both cases because the molecular chains in the vicinity of the surface seem to be affected by surface effects even in the adsorption layer.

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.

A large background scattering originating from the sample matrix is a major obstacle for fine-structure analysis of a nanometric layer buried in a bulk material. As polarization analysis can decrease undesired scattering in a neutron reflectivity (NR) profile, we performed NR experiments with polarization analysis on a polypropylene (PP)/perhydropolysilazane-derived SiO$$_{2}$$ (PDS)/Si substrate sample, having a deep-buried layer of SiO$$_{2}$$ to elucidate the fine structure of the nano-PDS layer. This method offers unique possibilities for increasing the amplitude of the Kiessig fringes in the higher scattering vector (Qz) region of the NR profiles in the sample by decreasing the undesired background scattering. Fitting and Fourier transform analysis results of the NR data indicated that the synthesized PDS layer remained between the PP plate and Si substrate with a thickness of approximately 109 ${AA}$;. Furthermore, the scattering length density of the PDS layer, obtained from the background subtracted data appeared to be more accurate than that obtained from the raw data. Although the density of the PDS layer was lower than that of natural SiO$$_{2}$$, the PDS thin layer had adequate mechanical strength to maintain a uniform PDS layer in the depth-direction under the deep-buried condition.

パリエジンバラプレスを用いた中性子回折実験における圧力伝達媒体の実際的な影響を調べるために、種々の圧力媒体(Pb, AgCl,常温および高温の4:1メタノールエタノール混合液(ME), N$$_2$$, Ar)を用いてMgOの回折パターンを約20GPaまで測定した。MgO 220回折線の線幅から見積もった試料室内の静水圧性は、Pb, AgCl, Ar,室温ME混合液, N$$_2$$, 高温MEの順に良くなる。これは、これまでのダイヤモンドアンビルセルを用いた結果と異なり、高圧下で固化した後も常温MEはArより高い性能を示す(パリエジンバラプレスで用いられたアンビルの窪みの効果と思われる)。これらの結果とより高い性能が期待されるNeが強い寄生散乱をだしてしまうこととを考えると、約20GPaまでの中性子実験においては、ME混合液(できれば高温が良い)が最良の圧力媒体であり、アルコールと反応する試料には液体Arで代替するのが良いことが明らかとなった。

MLF試料環境チーム低温・マグネットグループは、J-PARC MLFにおいて、利用者の実験のための冷凍機やマグネットの運用を行っている。これまでトップローディング型$$^4$$He冷凍機、ボトムローディング型$$^3$$He冷凍機、希釈冷凍機インサート、超伝導マグネットを導入してきた。これらの機器の使用頻度は、ビーム出力、課題数の増加に伴い、ここ2年間で急激に高くなってきている。この状況に対応するために運用経験を加味しながら、これらの機器の性能向上作業を進めている。例えば、$$^3$$He冷凍機の制御ソフトには、自動の初期冷却および再凝縮のプログラムが備わっていたが、新たに、$$^3$$He potにヒーターを焚くことなくsorbの温度制御のみで$$^3$$He potを温調するプログラムも作成した。また2017年は、超伝導マグネット用に、揺動型ラジアルコリメーター付きのOVCテールを製作した。このラジアルコリメーターの導入によりデータの質は劇的に向上し、中性子非弾性散乱実験でも超伝導マグネットが使用できるようになった。

Magnets are important for studying magnetism and are commonly used as sample environment devices of neutron scattering instruments. However, the use of magnets was prevented at the time-of-flight direct-geometry neutron spectrometer 4SEASONS in Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) at J-PARC, because the instrument is surrounded by iron components, and it is equipped with a piece of equipment operated with magnetic bearings. In the present work, we investigate the influence of stray magnetic fields from a superconducting magnet which is shared among neutron scattering instruments in MLF. Based on the investigation, we modified 4SEASONS such that it can be used with the magnet. Finally, we successfully performed the first inelastic neutron scattering experiments with applied magnetic fields using this sample environment.

$$^{3}$$Heの中性子吸収断面積が強いスピン選択性を有することを利用した偏極$$^{3}$$Heフィルターは、ビーム調整が不要なため、ビームラインに設置すれば直ぐに使える簡便な中性子スピンフィルター(NSF)として利用できる。そのようなNSF実現のためには、NSFの$$^{3}$$He偏極度${it P}$を定常的にモニタするための核磁気共鳴(NMR)システムの開発が不可欠である。我々は断熱高速通過型(AFP)とパルス型NMRの特徴が相補的であることに着目して2つのシステムを併用した汎用性の高いNMRシステムを開発した。更に、J-PARCの中性子実験装置(BL10)での中性子透過率測定から得られた${it P}$で校正しながら、温度、パルスNMRの振動磁場の大きさや印可時間などの測定条件を変えて、AFPとパルスNMRの信号間の相関を測定した。例えば、パルスNMR測定に起因する減偏極率を0.1%以下になるまでパルスNMRの検出感度を小さくしても、2つのNMR信号間の線形性は確認できた。これらの結果から、我々は開発したNMRシステムが$$^{3}$$He偏極度モニタとして十分機能することを確認した。

The pulsed neutron source of J-PARC has started to operate in 2008 in Japan. To study structure of magnetic material and soft matters, polarized neutron scattering techniques are very important and powerful tools. It is urgently necessary for us to develop neutron spin polarizers for pulsed neutron scattering experiments. So we began the development of the in-situ SEOP system aiming to use it as a NSF for incident beam polarization and polarization analysis. In previous test performed by Ino et al., the $$^{3}$$He polarization reached 50% and not saturated yet. After that experiment, we began improving the SEOP system by installing the high power laser diode, the prism beam splitter and optimizing the beam-transform optics. By using this improved system, we performed the polarization test at BL10 in J-PRC and achieved the $$^{3}$$He polarization of 73%. We keep improving this in-situ SEOP system aiming to use it s an incident neutron polarizer at J-PARC.

A polarized $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filter has been applied to polarization analysis on the small-angle neutron scattering spectrometer SANS-J-II at JRR-3. Measurements were taken on silver behenate, which has several coherent peaks in the small-angle region with a background of spin incoherent hydrogen scattering. Here we demonstrate that the coherent and spin incoherent scattering were successfully separated by the polarization analysis using the $$^{3}$$He spin filter on the instrument.

In spin-exchange optical pumping, there is unknown excess relaxation, called the X-factor, that limits attainable $$^{3}$$He polarization. It is known that the X-factor depends on the glass containers. Hence, it is expected that there are cell-to-cell variations in microscopic structure among the cells and that these variations affect the attainable $$^{3}$$He polarization. However, microscopic structure of the glasses for $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters has not been clarified yet. In this paper, we have performed precise X-ray diffraction measurements for the glasses at SPring-8 using synchrotron radiation. The structural differences are observed between several types of glasses, and also, between the GE180 glass pieces with different thermal treatment. Based on the results, the structural influence on the performance of $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters is discussed.

Polarized neutron scattering techniques are very important and powerful tools to study the fundamental structures of magnetic materials and soft matters. $$^{3}$$He has a very large absorption cross section for only neutrons in opposite spin state to that of the $$^{3}$$He nucleus. The scattering cross section of $$^{3}$$He is small. These two features allow nuclear spin polarized $$^{3}$$He gas to work as a NSF. Compared with other spin filters such as Heusler alloys and magnetic supermirrors, the $$^{3}$$He gas NSF have following advantages: it can polarize various energy of neutron such as cold, thermal and hot neutrons, it can work for broadband neutrons and it can be used for wide area and large divergence neutron beams. These characteristics of polarized $$^{3}$$He are convenient in use with J-PARC as NSF. We began the development of the on beam SEOP system aiming to use it s a NSF for incident beam polarisation and polarisation analysis. In this paper, we report the current development of SEOP system in Japan.

Polarized $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters have attracted much attention because of their available wide energy range for polarizing neutrons and their large solid-angle. To use $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters for the experiments, it is necessary to produce glass cells with good quality. For this purpose, we made research on the glass cells from several aspects. Firstly, we investigated on the microscopic structure for several glasses by means of X-ray diffraction measurement and tried to find a good measure of evaluating the quality of the cells in terms of their structure. Secondly, we investigated on the glass window, which the laser beam passes through for optical pumping. Thirdly, the cells should be optimized for the polarized neutron scattering experiments and the background from the cells needs to be evaluated. The scattered intensity from the cell in small-angle neutron scattering will also be presented.

Glass cells play an important role in polarized $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters. To evaluate the scattering and absorption contribution from glass cells during neutron scattering experiments, we measured small-angle scattering and neutron transmission in GE180 and other glasses. To pursue the possibility of being a structural influence on $$^{3}$$He spin relaxation in GE180 glass cells, we performed precise X-ray diffraction measurement using synchrotron radiation at SPring-8. From these measurements, a structural difference was observed among GE180 glasses with different thermal treatments.

Polarized $$^{3}$$He neutron spin filters are promising neutron polarizers in polarized neutron scattering experiments at facilities with two-dimensional detectors and pulsed neutron source. Although they are now operational at several institutions, it is still desired to be developed. Among required factors for the development, the study on the glasses in the filters is one of the important issues. In this paper, we report our recent investigation on the glass cells such as X-ray diffraction measurements and the measurements of the degree of circular polarization of the transmitted laser light through the glass window in the filter.

マメ科植物は共生根粒の発達及び数を正確に制御している。ミヤコグサ(${it Lotus japonicus}$)での根粒形成の制御について、地上部に存在する${it HAR1}$タンパクが必要であることから地上部と根の間での長距離の情報伝達経路の存在が示唆されている。この情報伝達経路の分子機構に対する理解を深めるため、われわれは(${it too much love}$ (${it tml}$))と命名した超根粒着生変異体を単離し解析した。野生型との接木試験によって${it tml}$変異体での過剰な根粒形成は根部の遺伝子型に依存することが示された。${it har1}$変異体の地上部と${it tml}$変異体の根部の接木では根粒の着生に影響は見られなかった。これらの結果は地上部の因子である${it HAR1}$と根の因子である${it TML}$が同じ情報伝達経路に関与することを示している。${it TML}$${it HAR1}$の下流で機能しており、${it TML}$が地上部から根に輸送される何らかのシグナル因子の受容体として機能している可能性がある。
