The structure of a neutron-rich F nucleus is investigated by a quasifree () knockout reaction. The sum of spectroscopic factors of orbital is found to be 1.0 0.3. The result shows that the O core of F nucleus significantly differs from a free O nucleus, and the core consists of 35% O, and 65% excited O. The result shows that the O core of F nucleus significantly differs from a free O nucleus. The result may infer that the addition of the proton considerably changes the neutron structure in F from that in O, which could be a possible mechanism responsible for the oxygen dripline anomaly.

The concept of geological disposal of HLW in Japan is based on a multi-barrier system which combines a stable geological environment with a robust barrier system. Potential geological host formations and their surroundings are chosen, in particular, for their long-term stability, taking into account the fact that Japan is located in a tectonically active zone. This report is a plan of research and development (R&D) on geosphere stability for long-term isolation of HLW in JAEA, in fiscal year 2014. The objectives and contents in fiscal year 2014 are described in detail based on the outline of 5 years plan (fiscal years 2010-2014). In addition, the planned framework is structured into the following categories: (1) Development and systematization of investigation techniques, (2) Development of models for long-term estimation and effective assessment, (3) Development of dating techniques.

Titanium oxide nanoparticles were formed by pulsed laser ablation of a TiO rutile pellet with a KrF excimer laser ( = 248 nm). The ablation was performed in atmospheres of Ar and O at total pressures ranging from 0.2 and 10 Torr. At a higher pressure than 1 Torr, Ti in the nanoparticles had an oxidation state of 4+ to form TiO. According to the X-ray diffraction analyses, the nanopartiles were found to contain both the anatase and rutile phases, which crystallized through extremely energetic, non-equilibrium reactions in an ablation plume. In contrast, at pressures of 0.2 and 0.5 Torr, the nanoparticles were composed of dominant TiO with a small amount of a less oxidized phase such as TiO. The important result is that the XRD patterns of the samples prepared at 1 and 5 Torr showed the different anatase-to-rutile ratio of the peak intensities. This indicates that the weight fraction of the rutile/anatase crystalline phases can be controlled by the ambient gas pressure.

Pulsed laser ablation with a KrF excimer laser was used to prepare fine particles of titanium dioxide (TiO). The ablation in an atmosphere of Ar and O (5:5) at total pressures of 1 Torr led to the formation of TiO nanoparticles composed of anatase and rutile structures without any suboxides. The weight fraction of the rutile/anatase crystalline phases was controlled by the pressure of the Ar/O gas. The TiO nanoparticles had a spherical shape and their size, ranging from 10 and 14 nm, also appeared to be dependent on the ambient pressure.
