Mukai, Yasunobu; Nakamura, Hironobu; Nakamichi, Hideo; Kurita, Tsutomu; Noguchi, Yoshihiko*; Tamura, Takayuki*; Ikegame, Ko*; Shimizu, Junji*

Proceedings of INMM 56th Annual Meeting (Internet), 9 Pages, 2015/07

The PIMS used at Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant can quantify plutonium amount in each process vessel located inside glovebox by means of neutron measurement. Since the PIMS is not used for the neutron coincidence counting, it is very important to maintain that those constants meet the actual process condition. PIMS was calibrated in 2006, and then JNFL has been started to measure the Pu amount directly in each glovebox for the purpose of facility NMA. However, it was found that PIMS counting was unexpectedly and continuously increased during long time of inter-campaign. In order to find out the main cause, JAEA and JNFL jointly conducted several investigations. In the investigations, correctness of system parameters and relevant constants, behavior of the neutron generation when MOX powder is stored in actual glovebox for a long time (to see O/M and moisture change) and the behavior focused on the relation between MOX powder and light element using inside glovebox (fluorine is included in the PTFE which is used in many gloveboxes as packing of instruments) were experimentally confirmed using MOX powder in PCDF. As a result, since the same behavior happened in the actual PIMS was confirmed in the testing environment in which MOX powder coexists with fluorine, it is concluded that the main potential cause of PIMS is the increasing of the probability of ($$alpha$$, $$n$$) reactions by a contact between PTFE and MOX powder.

A phoswich-type neutron detector was developed in order to measure high-energy cosmic-ray neutron spectrum in aircrafts. The neutron detector consists of a 121.7 mm diameter and a 121.7 mm long EJ309 organic liquid scintillator covered with a 15 mm thick EJ299-13 outer plastic scintillator. Neutron response functions of the detector are required for an unfolding method to get the energy spectrum. The neutron response functions were evaluated from measurements using quasi-monoenergetic neutron sources of various peak energies from 35 to 78 MeV and from the MCNPX simulation. Light output and scintillation attenuation in the scintillator were measured for proton, deuteron and helium-ion beams. The measured neutron response functions well agreed with the MCNPX simulation. Neutron response matrix was created up to 300 MeV neutron energy based on the MCNPX simulation in order to cover the wide neutron energy range in the fight experiment. Photon response matrix also was created up to 50 MeV.

The National Centralized Tokamak (NCT) facility program is a domestic research program for advanced tokamak research to succeed JT-60U incorporating Japanese university accomplishments. The mission of NCT is to establish high beta steady-state operation for DEMO and to contribute to ITER. The machine flexibility and mobility is pursued in aspect ratio and shape controllability, feedback control of resistive wall modes, wide current and pressure profile control capability for the demonstration of the high-b steady state.

Design studies are shown on the National Centralized Tokamak facility. The machine design is carried out to investigate the capability for the flexibility in aspect ratio and shape controllability for the demonstration of the high-beta steady state operation with nation-wide collaboration, in parallel with ITER towards DEMO. Two designs are proposed and assessed with respect to the physics requirements such as confinement, stability, current drive, divertor, and energetic particle confinement. The operation range in the aspect ratio and the plasma shape is widely enhanced in consistent with the sufficient divertor pumping. Evaluations of the plasma performance towards the determination of machine design are presented.

Magnetic and electrical properties of UIr

Yamamoto, Etsuji; Haga, Yoshinori; Matsuda, Tatsuma; Nakamura, Akio; Settai, Rikio*; Inada, Yoshihiko*; Sugawara, Hitoshi*; Sato, Hideyuki*; Onuki, Yoshichika

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 39(Suppl.3), p.187 - 190, 2002/11

We succeeded in growing a high-quality single crystal of UIr with the monoclinic PbBi-type structure by the Czochralski pulling method in a tetra-arc furnace. The magnetization measurement indicates that UIr is an Ising-like ferromagnet with the Curie temperature $$T_{rm C}$$= 46 K. The magnetic moment is found to be oriented along the [1 0 $=1] direction in the (010) plane. The saturated moment is 0.5 $mu_{rm B}$$/U. The magnetic property, reflected in the magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity, Hall coefficient and thermoelectric power, is highly anisotropic. We also observed the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) oscillation. All the detected branches have large cyclotron effective masses ranging from 9.6 to 32 $$m_0$$. They are consistent with the electronic specific heat coefficient $$gamma$$=49 mJ/K$$^2cdot$$mol.

With the main aim of providing physics basis for ITER and the steady-state tokamak reactors, JT-60/JT-60U has been developing and optimizing the operational concepts, and extending the discharge regimes toward sustainment of high integrated performance in the reactor relevant parameter regime. In addition to achievement of the equivalent break-even condition (QDTeq up to 1.25) and a high fusion triple product = 1.5E21 m-3skeV, JT-60U has demonstrated the integrated performance of high confinement, high beta-N, full non-inductive current drive with a large fraction of bootstrap current in the reversed magnetic shear and in the high-beta-p ELMy H mode plasmas characterized by both internal and edge transport barriers. The key factors in optimizing these plasmas are profile and shape controls. As represented by discovery of various Internal Transport Barriers, JT-60/JT-60U has been emphasizing freedom and restriction of profiles in various confinement modes. JT-60U has demonstrated applicability of these high confinement modes to ITER and also clarified remaining issues.

This report is a summary of the design works, which was discussed in the design workshop held in 2000 for the demonstration (DEMO) blanket aimed to strengthen the commercial competitiveness and technical feasibility simultaneously. The DEMO blanket must supply the feasibility and experience of the total design of the power plant and the materials. This conceptual design study was performed to determine the updated strategy and goal of the R&D of the DEMO blanket which applies the supercritical water cooling proposed in A-SSTR, taking into account the recent progress of the plasma research and reactor engineering technology.
