岩本 信之; 中村 詔司; 木村 敦; 片渕 竜也*; Rovira, G.*; 原 かおる*; 岩本 修

EPJ Web of Conferences, 239, p.17016_1 - 17016_4, 2020/09

Gamma-ray strength function (GSF) as well as nuclear level density is important ingredients to calculate neutron capture cross sections, since it gives energy-dependent transition strength of gamma-rays from a capture state and directly relates to spectrum of emitted gamma-rays. Therefore, the improvement of GSF is essential to enhance the reliability of neutron capture cross sections. The shape of GSF has been determined by experiments of neutron capture reactions, (p,p') reactions and nuclear resonance fluorescence. In addition, the use of the information of gamma-ray spectrum (i.e., pulse-height (PH) spectrum) measured by time-of-flight experiments is effective to evaluate the GSF. A lot of PH spectra have been measured by the Ge and NaI(Tl) detectors of the ANNRI installed at the Material and Life Science Experimental Facility in J-PARC. However, those spectra have not been actively used to extract the information of GSF so far. In the present study, we measured the PH spectrum of gold by using the NaI(Tl) detectors in ANNRI and used it for the evaluation of GSF. The gamma-ray spectrum for gold was calculated by a nuclear reaction model code CCONE. The obtained gamma-ray spectrum was applied to the Monte Carlo particle transport simulation code PHITS to derive PH spectrum comparable with the measured data. After this evaluation, we obtained GSF, reasonably explained the measured PH spectrum.

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.

最近、非弾性中性子散乱実験(INS)データから変換した実空間動的構造因子$$G(r,E)$$を用いた多結晶NaIのフォノンダイナミクスに関する研究報告を行った。この研究は、通常のINS実験条件(Q$$_{max} sim$$ 5$AA$^{-1}$$)であっても、物理的に十分意味のある実空間ダイナミクス情報が得られることを示したものであり、これまでに蓄積されてきた大量のINSデータの再利用と新たな視点での研究推進を促すものである。今回の発表では、$$G(r,E)$$解析の適用可能性とその限界について詳しく議論する。

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.

Neutron total and capture cross sections of $$^{243}$$Am have been measured in Accurate Neutron Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex with a neutron TOF method. The neutron capture cross section in the energy region from 10 meV to 100 eV was determined using an array of Ge detectors. Three samples with different activities were used for measurements of the capture cross section. The neutron total cross section in the energy region from 4 meV to 100 eV was measured using Li-glass detectors. Derived cross-section value at neutron energy of 0.0253 eV is 87.7$$pm$$5.4 b for the capture cross section and 101$$pm$$11 b for the total cross section.

Neutron diffraction is widely used for the investigation of lattice strain, texture and phase transformation in bulk materials. Although the distributions of these characteristics can be obtained by scanning the sample, the spatial resolution of the measurement is limited. Recently, Bragg-edge imaging technique is developed and adopted for the evaluations of lattice strain, crystal orientation and phase distributions in polycrystalline engineering materials such as steel. On the other hand, neutron diffraction imaging has a potential to be another technique for such purpose. Diffraction imaging at a pulsed neutron source requires a counting type two-dimensional position sensitive detector with high spatial resolution. We developed prototype imaging detector with wavelength-shifting fiber (WLSF) readout, and tried to observe sub grains in the b-Sn single crystal and grain distribution in the coarse-grained steel plate at NOBORU (BL10) of J-PARC MLF.

Neutron total and capture cross sections of $$^{241}$$Am have been measured with a new data acquisition system and a new neutron transmission measurement system installed in Accurate Neutron Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI) at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). The neutron total cross sections of $$^{241}$$Am were determined by using a neutron time-of-flight method in the neutron energy region from 4 meV to 2 eV. The thermal total cross section of $$^{241}$$Am was derived with an uncertainty of 2.9%. A pulse-height weighting technique was applied to determine neutron capture yields of $$^{241}$$Am. The neutron capture cross sections were determined by the time-of-flight method in the neutron energy region from the thermal to 100 eV, and the thermal capture cross section was obtained with an uncertainty of 4.1%. The evaluation data of JENDL-4.0 and JEFF-3.2 were compared with the present results.

Accurate neutron capture cross section data of $$^{126}$$Sn, which is one of the most important long-lived fission products (LLFPs), is required in the study of transmutation of radioactive waste. However, there is only one experimental data at the thermal energy. A $$^{126}$$Sn sample for a nuclear data experiment contaminated with a large amount of tin stable isotopes, $$^{115, 117-120, 122, 124}$$Sn, because these stable isotopes also have fission yields. These isotopes have large effects on neutron-capture cross-section measurements for $$^{126}$$Sn. To obtain accurate cross-section data for $$^{126}$$Sn, a series of neutron-capture cross-section measurements of all the tin stable isotopes are required. Therefore, the measurements of all tin stable isotopes have been started with Accurate Neutron-Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI) of Materials and Life science experimental Facility (MLF) in Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). In this presentation, preliminary results of the neutron-capture cross-section measurements of $$^{120, 122, 124}$$Sn are reported in the neutron energy region from 10 meV to 2 keV.

In situ high energy resolution fluorescence detection X-ray absorption spectroscopy (HERFD-XAS) was used to systematically evaluate interactions of H$$_{2}$$O and O$$_{2}$$ adsorbed on Pt and Pt$$_{3}$$Co nanoparticle catalysts in different particle sizes. The systematic increase in oxidation due to adsorption of different species (H$$_{2}$$O adsorption $$<$$ O$$_{2}$$ adsorption $$<$$ O$$_{2}$$ + H$$_{2}$$O coadsorption) suggests that cooperative behavior between O$$_{2}$$ and H$$_{2}$$O adsorptions is responsible for the overpotential induced by hydrated species in fuel cells. From the alloying and particle size effects, it is found that both strength of O$$_{2}$$/H$$_{2}$$O adsorption and their cooperative effect upon coadsorption are responsible for the specific activity of Pt catalysts.

The electronic structures of Pt and Pt-Co nanoparticles with O$$_{2}$$ adsorption and O$$_{2}$$/H$$_{2}$$O co-adsorption were investigated by in situ hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) and in situ high resolution fluorescence detection X-ray absorption spectroscopy (HERFD-XAS) to clarify the effects of water adsorption on fuel cell cathode catalysis surface. The experimental results suggest that under the pressure of 1 mbar, the adsorption of H$$_{2}$$O hinders the successive O$$_{2}$$ adsorption on Pt surface, while under the pressure of 1 bar, the adsorption of H$$_{2}$$O enhances the adsorption of O$$_{2}$$ on Pt surface. This water effect is found to be more significant on Pt surface than on Pt-Co surface. These results would be helpful to understand how the water affects the fuel cell performance and why Pt-Co nanoparticles show higher oxygen reduce reaction (ORR) activity than Pt nanoparticles.
