The structures of the neutron-rich $$^{69,71,73}$$Co isotopes were investigated via ($$p,2p$$) knockout reactions at the Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory, RIKEN. Level schemes were reconstructed using the $$gamma-gamma$$ coincidence technique, with tentative spin-parity assignments based on the measured inclusive and exclusive cross sections. Comparison with shell-model calculations suggests coexistence of spherical and deformed shapes at low excitation energies in the $$^{69,71,73}$$Co isotopes.

The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) Project is being pursued by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency(JAEA) to enhance the reliability of geological disposal technologies through investigations of the deep geological environment in the crystalline host rock(granite) at Mizunami City, Gifu Prefecture, central Japan. On the occasion of the reform of the entire JAEA organization in 2014, JAEA identified three important remaining issues on the geoscientific research program based on the synthesized latest results of research and development (R&D): "Development of countermeasure technologies for reducing groundwater inflow", "Development of modeling technologies for mass transport" and "Development of drift backfilling technology". The R&D on three remaining important issues have been carrying out in the MIU Project. This report summarizes the R&D activities planned for fiscal year 2019 on the basis of the MIU Master Plan updated in 2015 and Investigation Plan for the Third Medium to Long-term Research Phase.

The nuclear structure of the $$^{76}$$Ni nucleus was investigated by ($$p$$,$$2p$$) reaction using a NaI(Tl) array to detect the deexciting prompt $$gamma$$ rays. A new transition with an energy of 2227 keV was identified by $$gamma gamma$$ and $$gamma gamma gamma$$ coincidences. Our shell-model calculations using the Lenzi, Nowacki, Poves, and Sieja interaction produced good candidates for the experimental proton hole states in the observed energy region, and the theoretical cross sections showed good agreement with the experimental values. Although we could not assign all the experimental states to the theoretical ones unambiguously, the results are consistent with a reasonably large Z = 28 shell gap for nickel isotopes in accordance with previous studies.

The neutron-rich nucleus $$^{50}$$Ar is produced by the fragmentation reactions of $$^{54}$$Ca, $$^{55}$$Sc, and $$^{56}$$Ti at the RIBF facility in RIKEN, and its deexcited $$gamma$$ rays are observed for the first time. The first $$2^+$$ level in $$^{50}$$Ar is identified to lie at 1178(18)keV from the most intense $$gamma$$-ray spectra. This experimental data, together with the systematics of the $$2^+$$ levels for surrounding nuclei, is analyzed with large-scale shell-model calculations. Consequently, the $$N=32$$ sub-shell gap in $$^{50}$$Ar is equivalent to that of $$^{52}$$Ca, thus making the $$2^+$$ level in $$^{50}$$Ar higher than that of $$^{48}$$Ar. The shell-model calculation also predicts that the $$N=34$$ sub-shell gap enhances in going from Ca to Ar, which will be verified by forthcoming experiments for $$^{52}$$Ar.

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.

Magnetic Compton scattering studies of magneto-dielectric Ba(Co$$_{0.85}$$Mn$$_{0.15}$$)O$$_{3-delta}$$

We revealed that the Ba(Co$$_{0.85}$$Mn$$_{0.15}$$)O$$_{3-delta}$$ (BCMO) ceramic samples exhibited ferromagnetic-dielectric behavior below the magnetic transition temperature of about 35 K. The origin of their magnetic ordering was expected to super-exchange coupling of Co$$^{4+}$$($$d^5$$)-O$$^{2-}$$-Mn$$^{4+}$$ ($$d^3$$) with bonding angle of 180$$^{circ}$$. and/or Mn$$^{4+}$$($$d^3$$)-O$$^{2-}$$-Mn$$^{4+}$$ ($$d^3$$) with bonding angle of 90$$^{circ}$$. The magnetic spin momentum estimated by the magnetic Compton profiles (MCP) of the samples had similar temperature dependence as that determined by the SQUID measurement, which meant that the observed magnetic moments could be ascribed to the spin moment. The shapes of the MCPs of the samples were completely same regardless of the temperature measured. This result indicates that there are no changes of the momentum space distribution of spin density between ferromagnetic and paramagnetic states. So, this magnetic transition is simply caused by a thermal fluctuation of the spin.

We have studied the magnetic properties of pure CeO$$_{2}$$ irradiated with swift heavy ions. Experiment a results showed that the ferromagnetism was induced even at room temperature by 200 MeV Xe ion irradiation. The value of saturation magnetization, Ms, systematically changes as a function of ion-fluence. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectra show that the lattice constant of CeO$$_{2}$$ increases with increasing ion-fluence. This result and our previous XPS result show that the ion-irradiation produced oxygen vacancies. The present study implies that the ferromagnetic behavior of the ion-irradiated CeO$$_{2}$$ is attributed to the magnetic moments of localized 4f electrons on Ce$$^{3+}$$ atoms, which are related to oxygen vacancies.

Study on effects of energetic ion irradiation in Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$-doped CeO$$_{2}$$ by means of synchrotron radiation X-ray spectroscopy

Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research B, 277, p.53 - 57, 2012/04

In this study, to simulate such an environment, Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$-doped CeO$$_{2}$$ samples were irradiated with 200 MeV Xe$$^{14+}$$ ions at room temperature using an ion beam accelerator at JAEA-Tokai. As CeO$$_{2}$$ has the same fluorite structure as that of UO$$_{2}$$ and several properties of CeO$$_{2}$$ are similar to UO$$_{2}$$, in this study CeO$$_{2}$$ was used as a simulation material of UO$$_{2}$$. To study the effects of the ion irradiation on Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$-doped CeO$$_{2}$$, extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) were used at the Photon Factory of High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) as well as conventional X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement. The EXAFS and XRD spectra show that the effects of the ion irradiation are more pronounced for higher amount of Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ dopant.

Study on effects of energetic ion irradiation in Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$-doped CeO$$_2$$ by means of synchrotron radiation X-ray spectroscopy

To study the effects of Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$-doping and the irradiation with high energy fission products in the nuclear fuels (UO$$_2$$), Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$-doped CeO$$_2$$ pellets were irradiated with 200 MeV Xe$$^{14+}$$ ions. Effects of Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$-doping and the ion irradiation were estimated by using Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) measurement. The interatomic distances between each Ce and the first nearest O atoms, and Ce and the second nearest Ce atoms increase by the irradiation and the effect of the ion irradiation on the atomic distances is more pronounced for higher amounts of dopant. The Debye-Waller factors for Ce-O and Ce-Ce pairs increase with increasing the amount of Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$ dopant. These results suggest that the lattice binding energy is weakened by Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$-doping. The Debye-Waller factors increase also by the irradiation. The effect of ion irradiation on the Debye-Waller factors, however, becomes smaller for higher amounts of dopant.
