The energy-resolved neutron imaging system, RADEN, has been installed at the pulsed neutron source in the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. In addition to conventional neutron radiography and tomography, RADEN, the world's first imaging beam-line at a pulsed neutron source, provides three main options for new, quantitative neutron imaging techniques: Bragg-edge imaging to visualize the spatial distribution of crystallographic information, resonance absorption imaging for elemental composition and temperature information, and polarized neutron imaging for magnetic field information. This paper describes the results of characterization studies of the neutronic performance and installed devices at RADEN and shows the results of several demonstration studies for pulsed neutron imaging.

Japanese swords are very attractive not only as a work of art but also a metallurgical point of view. Since Japanese vintage swords became valuable, it is indispensable to establish non-destructive analysis method to identify some peculiar characteristics. Bragg edge imaging gives real-space distributions of bulk information in a crystalline material as well as neutron tomography. In this work, we investigated crystallographic information of a Japanese sword made by Sukemasa in Izumi province in the first quarter of the 16th century. The experiments have been performed at RADEN at J-PARC. The Sukemasa sword was measured with a counting-type 2D detector and with a CCD camera. We are now analyzing the measured 2D-transmission spectra using RITS code to obtain spatial distribution of the crystallite size, the texture variation, the d110 shift and its broadening. Complementary data analysis using white beam tomography is also on going. Detailed analysis results will be presented.

A two-dimensional thermometry technique based on neutron resonance reactions derives the temperature of specified elements in an object by analyzing the Doppler broadening of a neutron resonance measured by a time-analyzing neutron imaging-detector. This technique is expected to be one of the important applications of the energy-resolved neutron imaging system, RADEN, at J-PARC. The authors focused on molybdenum contained in 316 stainless-steel (with a weight fraction of 2-3 wt%). Energy-dependent transmitted neutrons were measured through a 3 mm thick 316 stainless-steel plate placed in a heater at temperatures between 23 and 500 degrees Celsius at RADEN using a gas-electron multiplier (GEM) detector. Thermal and cold neutrons were eliminated from the incident beam by a cadmium filter. The sample area within the neutron beam was 30 by 50 mm$$^2$$. The feasibility is discussed in the presentation.

During a winter thunderstorm on 2017 November 24, a strong burst of gamma-rays with energies up to $$sim$$10 MeV was detected coincident with a lightning discharge, by scintillation detectors installed at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant at sea level in Japan. The burst had a sub-second duration, which is suggestive of photoneutron productions. The leading part of the burst was resolved into four intense gamma-ray bunches, each coincident with a low-frequency radio pulse. These bunches were separated by 0.7$$-$$1.5 ms, with a duration of $$<$$1 ms each. Thus, the present burst may be considered as a "downward" terrestrial gamma-ray flash (TGF), which is analogous to up-going TGFs observed from space. Although the scintillation detectors were heavily saturated by these bunches, the total dose associated with them was successfully measured by ionization chambers, employed by nine monitoring posts surrounding the power plant. From this information and Monte Carlo simulations, the present downward TGF is suggested to have taken place at an altitude of 2500$$pm$$500 m, involving $$8^{+8}_{-4} times10^{18}$$ avalanche electrons with energies above 1 MeV which is comparable to those in up-going TGFs.

Two types of high-energy events have been detected from thunderstorms. One is "terrestrial gamma-ray flashes" (TGFs), sub-millisecond emissions coinciding with lightning discharges. The other is minute-lasting "gamma-ray glows". Although both phenomena are thought to originate from relativistic runaway electron avalanches in strong electric fields, the connection between them is not well understood. Here we report unequivocal simultaneous detection of a gamma-ray glow termination and a downward TGF, observed from the ground. During a winter thunderstorm in Japan on 9 January 2018, our detectors caught a gamma-ray glow, which moved for $$/sim$$ 100 s with ambient wind, and then abruptly ceased with a lightning discharge. Simultaneously, the detectors observed photonuclear reactions triggered by a downward TGF, whose radio pulse was located within $$sim$$ 1 km from where the glow ceased. It is suggested that the highly-electrified region producing the glow was related to the initiation of the downward TGF.

We are promoting for practical product observation by the energy-resolved neutron imaging method using high-intensity pulsed neutrons at J-PARC, under the Photon and Quantum Basic Research Coordinated Development Program from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan. Bragg edge imaging, one of the energy-resolved neutron imaging methods for visualizing material properties, was applied to feasibility study of the temperature distribution of copper rod, complementary study of the texture and strain distribution of bent steel plates using neutron diffraction and EBSD, and so on. Outline of results obtained by these imaging experiments will be presented.

The 2012 model lithium-6 time-analyzer neutron detector (LiTA12) system, based on a lithium glass scintillator and multi-anode photomultiplier tube, has the highest neutron efficiency among the detectors for pulsed neutron imaging together with a flexibility of the efficiency by changing the thickness of the lithium glass. The authors expect this detector system could become a main detector system for the energy-resolved neutron imaging system, RADEN, at J-PARC, and have started evaluation of the LiTA12 system. For example, spatial resolution for resonance absorption imaging was evaluated by using a line-pair pattern made by 3 micro meter thick gold on a quartz plate. Less than 1 mm width line pairs were resolved at an 8 Mcps neutron counting rate and around 5 eV neutron energy.

3枚の格子からなる中性子タルボ・ロー干渉計は高機能なイメージング装置であり、通常の吸収コントラスト像に加えて、微分位相コントラスト像とビジビリティコントラスト像も同時に取得することができる。我々はJ-PARC MLF RADENビームラインにおいて波長分解型のタルボ・ロー干渉計の開発を進めている。干渉パターンの波長分解解析を行うことで、白色ビーム測定で生じていた色収差による系統誤差を排除するとともに、より定量的な情報を引き出すことが可能になる。この波長分解測定・解析法を前提として、RADENビームラインの波長スペクトルに最適化した干渉計の設計(中心波長・格子周期・格子間距離)を決定した。

We have fabricated and utilized spatial resolution test targets made of gadolinium and gold for conventional and resonance neutron imaging performed at RADEN, located at beam line BL22 of the J-PARC Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF). RADEN covers a broad energy range from cold neutrons to high-energy neutrons with energy of several tens keV and was designed to perform energy-resolved neutron imaging utilizing two-dimensional detectors combined with the accurate measurement of neutron energy by the time-of-flight method. The test targets were designed to verify the spatial resolution and image uniformity of two kinds of neutron detectors, counting-type detectors and camera-type detectors. In this presentation, we report the details of these two-dimensional test targets, and the results of demonstrations using the test targets with our neutron imaging detectors. This work was supported in part by the Photon and Quantum Basic Research Coordinated Development Program from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan.

We developed, in this study, a novel method to observe internal deformation of concrete by the neutron transmission imaging technique. In order to visualize the internal deformation of concrete, the cement paste markers containing Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ powder were two-dimensionally dispersed around the ferritic deformed rebar in the reinforced concrete. This experiment was conducted using BL22, RADEN, in the Material and Life Science Experimental Facility of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. The transmission images of the reinforced concrete sample were taken at several positions on the vertical sample stage, and the displacement of the marker from the initial position was successfully evaluated within approximately $$pm$$0.1 mm accuracy by image analysis for selected markers with higher contrast and circularity. Furthermore, concrete deformation under pull-out loading to the embedded rebar was evaluated by the same way, and its reaction compressive deformation was successfully observed by analyzing the displacement of the markers. The results obtained in this study bring beneficial knowledge that the measurement accuracy of the marker displacement can be improved more by choosing a spherical shape of the marker and by increasing the contrast of the marker.

欧州原子核研究機構(CERN)の放射線モニタとして、中性子、陽子、$$gamma$$線等の様々な放射線に対して有感な空気入り電離箱PTW-34031(PMI)が使用されている。PMIの各放射線に対する応答関数の計算では、CERNが開発を支援している放射線輸送計算コードFLUKAが用いられている。本研究では、このうち高エネルギー中性子に対するPMIの応答関数の精度検証のため、大阪大学核物理研究センター(RCNP)の$$^{7}$$Li(p,n)反応を利用した準単色中性子照射場において、100-392MeVの準単色中性子に対するPMIの応答関数を測定した。その結果、200MeV以下の準単色中性子照射において、中性子エネルギースペクトルの測定値を線源としたFLUKAによる応答関数の計算値と実験値はよく一致しすることがわかった。一方、250及び392MeVの場合、中性子場に$$^{7}$$Li(p,n)反応から生成する$$pi$$$$^{0}$$の崩壊に伴う$$gamma$$線が混在するため、中性子のみを線源とした計算値は実験値を過小評価することがわかった。

Neutron resonance thermometry, which measures material temperature by analyzing the Doppler broadening of a neutron resonance peak, is one of the applications of energy-resolved neutron imaging at RADEN of J-PARC. Although this technique is promising, advantages and disadvantages have not been discussed in practical applications. The authors measured neutron transmission rates of tantalum and tungsten foils in a heater chamber up to 300 degrees Celsius at RADEN. The energy-dependent neutron transmission rates with different statistics were obtained after the measurements by selecting arbitrary measuring intervals from one measurement, and the temperatures of the foils were estimated from those transmission rates with different statistics. The reliability of the neutron resonance thermometry with statistical accuracy, irradiation time and spatial resolution are discussed.

大阪大学核物理研究センターRCNPの陽子-リチウム核反応を用いた高エネルギー準単色中性子場は、放射線測定器の特性試験や校正などに利用されている。この中性子場のエネルギースペクトルは、0度方向に放出される中性子によるピーク部とそれ以外の角度に放出される連続部からなる。このうち、各試験で対象とするエネルギーはピーク部であるが、われわれは、これまでに0度と他角度方向に設置した検出器応答から、連続部の寄与を差し引く二角度差分法を開発してきた。本研究では、高密度ポリエチレン(HDPE)減速材付属のボナー球検出器に対する本手法の適用性を、96-387MeVの準単色中性子を用いて調査した。その結果、様々な大きさのHDPEに対して本手法は適応可能であることを検証できた。一方で、小型のHDPEは、中性子場のコリメータ,壁等による低エネルギー散乱中性子に感度を有するため、二角度差分法の他に、検出器の設置角度毎に低エネルギー散乱中性子に対する検出器応答の補正が必要である等、本中性子場を利用するユーザーに対する有益な指針を示すことができた。

Direct growth of graphene on insulators is expected to yield significant improvements in performance of graphene-based electronic and spintronic devices. In this study, we successfully reveal atomic arrangement and electronic properties of the coherent heterostructure of single-layer graphene and $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001). In the atomic arrangement analysis of single-layer graphene on $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001), we observed apparently contradicting results. The in-plane analysis shows that single-layer graphene grows not in the single-crystalline epitaxial manner but in the polycrystalline form with two strongly pronounced preferred orientations. This suggests the relatively weak interfacial interactions to be operative. But, we demonstrate that there exists unusually strong physical interactions between graphene and $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001), as evidenced by the short vertical distance between graphene and $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001) surface. The interfacial interactions are shown to be dominated by the electrostatic force involved in the graphene $$pi$$-system and the unsaturated electrons of the topmost O layer of $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001) rather than the van der Waals interactions. Such feature causes hole doping into graphene, which gives graphene a chance to slide on the $$alpha$$-Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(0001) surface with a small energy barrier despite the strong interfacial interactions.

The interaction between carbon and BN nanotubes (NT) and transition metal Co and Ni supports was studied using electronic structure calculations. Several configurations of interfaces were considered, and the most stable ones were used for electronic structure analysis. All NT/Co interfaces were found to be more energetically favorable than NT/Ni, and conductive carbon nanotubes demonstrates lightly stronger bonding than semiconducting ones. The presence of contact-induced spin polarization was established for all nanocomposites. It was found that the contact-induced polarization of BNNT leads to the appearance of local conductivity in the vicinity of the interface while the rest of the nanotube lattice remains to be insulating.

A wide variety of planar and curved fused porphyrin/metalloporphyrin nanoclusters have been studied at the LC-GGA DFT level. It was found that curved and hollow-caged 0D and 1D nanoclusters are metastable and bear unique atomic and electronic structure and mechanical properties. Under different types of mechanical loads the nanoclusters display ultrastrong and superelastic properties. The curvature of the hollow cage nanoclusters leads to the redistribution of the metal d states near the Fermi level. The extremely high spin states allow one to use Fe-porphyrin nanoclusters as molecular supermagnets and logic quantum gates for holonomic quantum computations.

高エネルギー加速器施設における合理的な遮へい設計のためには、広い中性子エネルギー領域に渡った遮へい体透過後の中性子スペクトルに関する知見が必要がある。本研究では、減速型中性子検出器であるボナー球スペクトロメータ(BSS)を用いて、コンクリート及び鉄遮へい体を透過した中性子のエネルギースペクトルを数100MeVから熱領域まで測定した。測定では、大阪大学核物理研究センター(RCNP)において開発した246MeV及び389MeV準単色中性子ビームを、厚さ10cmから100cmの鉄、及び25cmから300cmのコンクリートに入射し、その後方で中性子を検出した。本研究で使用したBSSは、熱中性子に感度がある$$^{3}$$He比例計数菅及び直径3から9.5インチのポリエチレン減速材に加え、高エネルギー中性子にも感度を持たせるため鉛と銅からなる減速層を追加している。中性子エネルギーは、アンフォールディング法に基づくMAXEDコードにより導出した。アンフォールディングの際の初期スペクトルには、有機シンチレータで測定したデータを採用した。これにより、核破砕反応による高エネルギー中性子成分から熱平衡ピークまでを含む幅広い中性子スペクトルを決定することができた。

高エネルギー加速器施設における合理的な遮へい設計のためには、遮へい体に対する中性子の減衰を実験データに基づき精度良く評価する必要がある。本研究では、大阪大学核物理研究センター(RCNP)において開発した数百MeV領域の準単色中性子源を用いて、厚さ10cmから200cmのコンクリート及び鉄遮へい体後方での中性子エネルギースペクトルを、直径及び厚さが25.4cmの大型有機シンチレータを用いて測定した。中性子エネルギースペクトルの高エネルギー部分は飛行時間法を、中低エネルギー部分(下限エネルギー数MeV)はアンフォールディング法を用いてそれぞれ導出した。大型有機シンチレータを採用したことにより、エネルギー依存性の良い波高データの取得が可能となり、アンフォールディング法のエネルギー分解能を向上させることができた。得られた中性子スペクトル及び中性子減弱曲線を、粒子・重イオン輸送コードPHITSの計算値と比較した。その結果、両者は極めてよく一致することがわかった。この知見は、コンクリート及び鉄に対する高エネルギー中性子の減弱係数の評価にとって非常に有益である。

J-PARCのような高エネルギー加速器施設における放射線安全管理において、高エネルギー中性子による被ばく線量評価は極めて重要であることから、高エネルギー領域中性子に対する中性子線量当量モニタの測定精度を詳しく調べることが重要である。本研究では、J-PARC施設の放射線安全管理のために開発した高エネルギー対応中性子モニタを含む、4種類の高エネルギー帯域中性子モニタと、おもに20MeV以下の中性子場において広く用いられている3種類の市販の中性子モニタのエネルギー応答特性を、大阪大学RCNPの134-387MeV準単色中性子場を用いて測定し、測定結果の比較を行うとともに、場の中性子スペクトルと線量換算係数から求めた場の線量率との比較を行った。その結果、高エネルギー帯域モニタによる測定結果は場の線量率を再現若しくはわずかに上回ったのに対し、従来型モニタでは高エネルギー帯域モニタの10-30%程度の線量率となり、場の線量を過小評価する結果となった。
