There are some different chemical and physical forms of water molecules in concretes. Especially, bound water is difficult to determine. In the present work, we determined free + adsorbed water and bound water contained in aggregates and cement pastes, which are component of concretes, by means of conventional gravimetric analysis and prompt $$gamma$$-ray analysis (PGA), respectively, in order to evaluate a total water content in concretes. In the PGA, background reduction was attempted by using the time-of-flight (TOF) signal. In addition, the degree of contribution to analytical values by scattered neutrons by samples was evaluated because water would adsorb on the surface of instruments inside the irradiation chamber for the PGA. Contents of the free + adsorbed water and bound water in some geochemical references determined in the present work were compared with the nominal values to confirm the precision. Each water content in aggregates collected from different quarries and cement pastes with different water-to-cement ratios were analyzed. A total water content in young concrete was evaluated on the basis of the analytical values.

A high-accuracy analytical method is broadly required to obtain reliable research results. Thus, prompt $$gamma$$-ray analysis (PGA), one of the most accurate non-destructive analytical methods, has been employed in various fields. However, the measurement accuracy of PGA is also known to degrade in hydrogenous samples. The degradation is caused by variation in the measurement sensitivity (counts per milligram) following the change in neutron energy due to scattering with hydrogen nucleus. Number of scatterings is well known to depend on the hydrogen content in a sample. However, considering multiple scatterings, hydrogen density, which has not been taken into account as yet, may also lead to the accuracy degradation. In this research, the effect of the hydrogen density in PGA is investigated by evaluating the measurement sensitivity of samples with the same hydrogen content and different densities. The results showed that the measurement sensitivity varies by more than 30% depending on the hydrogen density even at the same hydrogen content. The variation is a particularly serious problem for PGA requiring a few percent accuracy in most cases. Additionally, although the variation is apparently observed in hydrogenous samples, the similar phenomenon can occur in other nuclides with a large scattering cross section; it may affect nuclear cross-section measurements using neutrons in such fields as astrophysics and nuclear energy.

In order to improve the accuracy of the cross-section and the resonance parameters of $$^{93}$$Nb, neutron capture and total cross-sections were measured using the J-PARC MLF ANNRI. The thermal-neutron capture cross-section was deduced as 0.97$$pm$$0.12 b. The resonance parameters of 11 resonances below 400 eV were determined from obtained capture cross-sections and transmission ratios by using the resonance analysis code, REFIT.

Considering the expanding demand for nuclear waste management of the spent nuclear fuel materials in near future, a non-destructive analytical scheme applicable to the most difficult-to-measure nuclide of $$^{107}$$Pd, which emits no decay gamma-rays and whose half-life is too long to be decayed out during a human lifetime, was designed. The scheme consists of a sophisticated instrument capable of the detection of gamma-rays by Ge detectors coupled with time-of-flight measurement of neutrons and a high-intensity pulsed neutron beam, and can simultaneously perform TOF-coupled prompt gamma-ray analysis (TOF-PGA) as well as PGA and NRCA. An analytical capability was evaluated by applying to simulated samples of the Tc-platinum group metals (Tc-PGMs) obtained by the group partitioning process of spent nuclear fuels, which contain not only $$^{107}$$Pd but also $$^{99}$$Tc and another difficult-to-measure fission product. It was confirmed that, although PGA and NRCA could accurately analyze both nuclides in individual single substances, only TOF-PGA can analyze $$^{107}$$Pd as well as $$^{99}$$Tc in the Tc-PGMs simulated sample. The TOF-PGA measurement technique can be widely used for the non-destructive analysis of $$^{107}$$Pd and $$^{99}$$Tc in nuclear wastes.

福島原子力発電所の解体作業では、溶融した燃料棒に含まれるホウ素分布を事前に把握することが重要である。溶融燃料棒の模擬試験体を用意し、ホウ素やホウ化物の含有量を調査する研究が行われてきた。本研究では、その一環として中性子を用いたホウ素並びにホウ化物分布の測定技術開発を行った。ホウ素の中性子吸収に伴う即発ガンマ線を測定し、ホウ素量や二次元分布を測定した。また、n(B,$$alpha$$$$gamma$$)反応における478keV$$gamma$$線は、ホウ素の化合状態により、$$gamma$$線ピークの幅が変化することが知られている。このことを用い、特に溶融燃料棒周辺に存在することが予測されているZrBやFeBといったホウ化物の識別可能性について調査した。測定はJ-PARC/MLFのANNRI, NOBORU, RADENにて行った。これらの解析結果について報告する。

タンデム加速器(静電加速器)は、発生する電圧を制御することによって、連続した任意のエネルギーのイオンビームを容易に得ることができるという利点を持っている。したがって、当施設の加速器制御システムで運用しているスケーリング運転と連動制御を用いて、発生する電圧の制御を自動化することができれば、ビームエネルギーの制御も自動化できる。電圧制御を自動化するためには開発を進めるべき要素がいくつかある。重要な要素の1つとして、タンデム加速器の電圧を制御しているコロナプローブの位置調整を自動化しなければならない。しかしながら、旧型のコロナプローブでは、制御方式や精度の面で、自動化することは困難であった。そこで、我々はこれらの面を改良した新たなコロナプローブを開発した。新型コロナプローブは新たな制御方式, 駆動機構および位置検出機構を用いることで、位置調整の自動化、位置精度の向上、整備性の向上を達成することができた。本報告では、この新型コロナプローブの開発について詳細に述べる。

The neutron capture cross-section of $$^{237}$$Np has been measured in the neutron energy region of 10 meV to 500 eV. A neutron time-of-flight method was employed using the NaI(Tl) spectrometer in the ANNRI beam-line at the Japanese Proton Accelerator Re-search Complex (J-PARC). The experimental capture yield was derived using the pulse-height weighting technique and an energy dependent cross-section was obtained relative to the incident neutron spectrum derived from a $$^{10}$$B(n, $$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reaction yield. The absolute cross-section was determined by normalizing the results to JENDL-4.0 cross-section data at the first resonance of $$^{237}$$Np. The thermal cross-section was measured to be 177.6 $$pm$$ 3.8 b. The resolved resonance region was analyzed with the REFIT code.

The low-lying isomeric state of $$^{229}$$Th provides unique opportunities for high-resolution laser spectroscopy of the atomic nucleus. We determine the energy of this isomeric state by measuring the absolute energy difference between two $$gamma$$-decays from the 29.2-keV second-excited state. A transition-edge sensor microcalorimeter was used to measure the absolute energy of the 29.2-keV $$gamma$$-ray with improved precision. Together with the cross-band transition energy (29.2 keV$$rightarrow$$ground) and the branching ratio of the 29.2-keV state measured in a recent study, the isomer energy was determined to be 8.30$$pm$$0.88 eV. Our result is in agreement with latest measurements based on different experimental techniques, which further confirms that the isomeric state of $$^{229}$$Th is in the laser-accessible vacuum ultraviolet range.

We have measured the $$gamma$$-ray energy spectrum from the thermal neutron capture, $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$, on an enriched $$^{157}$$Gd target ($$Gd_2O_3$$) in the energy range from 0.11 MeV up to about 8 MeV. The target was placed inside the germanium spectrometer of the ANNRI detector at J-PARC and exposed to a neutron beam from the Japan Spallation Neutron Source (JSNS). Radioactive sources ($$^{60}$$Co, $$^{137}$$Cs, and $$^{152}$$Eu) and the reaction $$^{35}Cl(n,gamma)$$ were used to determine the spectrometer's detection efficiency for $$gamma$$ rays at energies from 0.3 to 8.5 MeV. Using a Geant4-based Monte Carlo simulation of the detector and based on our data, we have developed a model to describe the $$gamma$$-ray spectrum from the thermal $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$ reaction. While we include the strength information of 15 prominent peaks above 5 MeV and associated peaks below 1.6 MeV from our data directly into the model, we rely on the theoretical inputs of nuclear level density and the photon strength function of $$^{158}$$Gd to describe the continuum $$gamma$$-ray spectrum from the $$^{157}Gd(n,gamma)^{158}Gd$$ reaction. The results of the comparison between the observed $$gamma$$-ray spectra from the reaction and the model are reported in detail.
