The J-PARC E56 experiment aims to search for sterile neutrinos at the J-PARC Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF). In order to examine the feasibility of the experiment, we measured the background rates of different detector candidate sites, which are located at the third floor of the MLF, using a detector consisting of plastic scintillators with a fiducial mass of 500 kg. The gammas and neutrons induced by the beam as well as the backgrounds from the cosmic rays were measured, and the results are described in this article.

Polymerization mechanism for radiation-induced grafting of styrene into Alicyclic polyimide films for preparation of polymer electrolyte membranes

Park, J.; Enomoto, Kazuyuki; Yamashita, Takashi*; Takagi, Yasuyuki*; Todaka, Katsunori*; Maekawa, Yasunari

Alicyclic polyimides (APIs) were successfully applied to radiation-induced graft polymerization for developing polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells. The grafting into fully aromatized polyimide barely proceeded (grafting degrees (GDs) of less than 5%), whereas that of styrene into the API films proceeded with styrene GDs of up to 70%. In combination of electron spin resonance measurements and ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS) spectroscopy, the radical species was identified as a long-lived intermediate and 10% of the radicals were consumed as grafting initiators. The moderate reaction conditions allowed for selective sulfonation on the polystyrene grafts, and not on the API substrates, to give API-based polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) with ion exchange capacities (IEC) of 1.7-2.8 mmol/g. The PEMs exhibited appropriate proton conductivity and low water uptake, together with excellent mechanical properties, compared with conventional PEMs such as Nafion.

Degradation manner of polymer grafts chemically attached on thermally stable polymer films; Swelling-induced detachment of hydrophilic grafts from hydrophobic polymer substrates in aqueous media

Enomoto, Kazuyuki*; Takahashi, Shuichi*; Iwase, Takanori*; Yamashita, Takashi*; Maekawa, Yasunari

Journal of Materials Chemistry, 21(25), p.9343 - 9349, 2011/07

The degradation manner of graft-type polymer electrolyte membranes consisting of hydrophilic poly(styrenesulfonic acid) (PSSA) graft polymers (grafts) and thermally and mechanically stable hydrophobic polymer substrates was examined in hot water. Severe weight loss was observed in PSSA-grafted cPTFE and ETFE films but not in a PSSA-grafted PEEK film. The decomposed extracts in water were characterized as PSSA during the whole course of degradation, clearly showing that the PSSA grafts detached from the fluorinated substrates without decomposition or scission of graft polymer chains. This is quite a new degradation manner for graft-type polymer electrolyte membranes; namely, hydrophilic PSSA grafts detach from hydrophobic polymer substrates due to swelling-induced stress at the interfacial boundary in the grafted films.

Alicyclic Polyimide (A-PI) films were utilized as a substrate of radiation-induced polymerization to prepare PEM for fuel cells. We successfully prepared the A-PI- PEM by radiation-induced grafting of styrene into A-PI films and subsequent sulfonation. The obtained A-PI-PEM has higher ion conductivity and mechanical and thermal properties, compared with conventional PEM (Nafion). Furthermore, the long-lived intermediates in irradiated A-PI films were observed in the UV-VIS spectra. In comparison with the decay profile of ESR spectra of irradiated A-PI films, the initiation radicals (600, 420 nm) and radical anion (720 nm) can be characterized in terms of the graft polymerization mechanism of A-PI films.

Polymer films with acid-responsive chromic dyes and acid generators have been designed for an electron beam (EB)-induced color imaging system. Arylsulfonic acid esters and triphenylsulfonium salts were used as an EB-sensitive acid generator; the acid (H$$^{+}$$) allows a chromic reaction with rhodamine B base (RB) and 4,4'-bis(dimethylamino)benzhydrol (BH) to be triggered. Upon EB irradiation, poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) films consisting of RB or BH and acid generators exhibited a characteristic absorption band with $$lambda$$max at 560 and at 612 nm, respectively, and an isosbestic point. These spectral changes clearly indicate that colorless chromic dyes in PMMA are transformed selectively to the colored form. The color imaging of these films was performed by electron beam direct writing (EBDW) with a 50 nm diameter beam to form 100 - 1000 nm line and space patterns and was evaluated by optical and confocal laser microscopy. EBDW on the acid chromic polymer films, especially for BH, yielded clear color imaging of 100 - 200 nm line and space patterns with a dose of only 10 $$mu$$C/cm$$^{2}$$. The confocal laser microscopy gave thinner lines than the laser wavelength (632.8 nm), probably because of the large change in refractive index of the patterned film induced by EB irradiation even with a low energy dose.

In an attempt to control protein incorporation in a crystal lattice, a leucine zipper-like hydrophobic interface (comprising four leucine residues) was introduced into a helical region (helix 2) of the human pancreatic ribonuclease 1 (RNase 1) that was predicted to form a suitable crystallization interface. Although crystallization of wild type RNase 1 has not yet been reported, the RNase 1 mutant having four leucines (4L-RNase 1) was successfully crystallized under several different conditions. The crystal structures were subsequently determined by X-ray crystallography by molecular replacement using the structure of bovine RNase A. The overall structure of 4L-RNase 1 is quite similar to that of the bovine RNase A, and the introduced leucine residues formed the designed crystal interface. To further characterize the role of the introduced leucine residues in crystallization of RNase 1, the number of leucines was reduced to three or two (3L- and 2L-RNase 1, respectively). Both mutants crystallized and a similar hydrophobic interface as in 4L-RNase 1 was observed. A related approach to engineer crystal contacts at helix 3 of RNase 1 (N4L-RNase 1) was also evaluated. N4L-RNase 1 also successfully crystallized, and formed the expected hydrophobic packing interface. These results suggest that appropriate introduction of a leucine zipper-like hydrophobic interface can promote intra molecular symmetry for more efficient protein crystallization in crystal lattice engineering efforts.

This paper presents progresses of the test strategy development, design and supporting R&Ds of solid breeder Test Blanket Modules (TBMs) in Japan. Japan is proposing to test its unique designs of Water Cooled Solid Breeder (WCSB) TBM and Helium Cooled Solid Breeder (HCSB) TBM from the beginning of the ITER operation. As for the design work, structure design showed steady progress and clarified detailed structure taking into account the fabrication procedure. As for supporting R&Ds, the corrosion characteristics of the structural material by high temperature and pressure water was clarified as one of critical structure integrity issues. Also, important design data of the breeder pebble bed has been clarfied. Along with the development progress, the test strategy has been investigated to obtain the most effective results of TBM test program.

We report detailed spectroscopic studies performed for the secondary star in the black hole binary (micro-quasar) V4641 Sgr in order to examine its surface chemical composition and to see if its surface shows any signature of pollution by ejecta from a supernova explosion. We obtain abundances of 10 elements and find definite over-abundances of N (by 0.8 dex or more) and Na (by 0.8 dex) in V4641 Sgr. From line-by-line comparisons of eight other elements (C, O, Mg, Al, Si, Ti, Cr, Fe) between V4641 Sgr and the two normal late B-type stars, which have been reported to have solar abundances. An evolutionary model of a massive close binary system has been constructed to explain the abundances observed in V4641 Sgr. The model suggests that the BH forming supernova in this system was a dark one.

The novel electron beam (EB)-induced color imaging system, consisting of polymer films with acid-responsive chromic molecules (chromic dyes) and EB-acid generators (EBAGs) was proposed. EB irradiation of the acid-chromic polymer films induced acid generation from EBAG, resulting in color formation of the acid-chromic molecules (protonated forms). Nanoscale color imaging on the acid- chromic polymer films was carried out using EB scanning direct drawing. Clear color imaging of 200 nm square and 100 nm line/space patterns could be observed with a dose of only 50 $$mu$$C cm$$^{-2}$$. Furthermore, the large EB-induced refractive index change of these films (0.013 at 632.8 nm) was observed in both TE and TM modes by an m-line method, which is sufficient to create an optical circuit.

The electron beam (EB)-induced reactions of arylsulfonic acid esters, phenyl p-toluenesulfonate (1a), phenyl benzenesulfonate (1b), and phenyl 1-naphthalenesulfonate (1c), were examined in the balk state. The EB irradiation of 1a afforded the Fries rearrangement products, o- and p-hydroxyphenyl p-tolylsulfones (2a and 3a), phenol (5), and the oxidation product of 2a, o,p-dihydroxyphenyl p-tolylsulfone (4a), which has not been observed in photolysis. The irradiation of 1b, which is liquid at room temperature, gave Fries products, 5, and the oxidation product, o,p-dihydroxyphenyl phenylsulfone. On the other hand, the EB-induced reaction of 1c proceeded with the lowest reactivity through crystal to crystal transformation to afford Fries products and 5, but not oxidation product. The mechanistic study reveals that oxidation product 4a generated by the oxidation reaction of ortho-Fries product 2a but not para-isomer 3a with an active oxidant, which should result from the decomposition of 1a.

Development of high power klystron, 1

Hirano, Koichiro; Emoto, Takashi; Wang, Y.; Enomoto, Y; Sato, Isamu

PNC TN9410 96-071, 32 Pages, 1996/03


(Objectives) A high power klystron that generates 1.2 MW radio frequency at 1.249135GHz is required for the high power CW electron linac development. The first prototype klystron was limited RF output of 330kW with CW-mode operation and 780kW with pulse-mode operation (50 msec pulse width, 1 pps) because the window temperature reached near the critical point of destruction by thermal stress. A long pill-box type beryllia window (long pill-box window) was designed and measured using a resonant ring in high power experiment. The long pill-box window withstood the RF output of 1.7MW(CW), that has been verified by the high power experiment. (Method) The standard pill-box prototype klystron was replaced with the long pill-box window. The high power test was carried out with the converted klystron. We measured maximum CW RF output power and observed the surface temperature rise of the ceramic window in the long pill-box. (Results)The temperature increase was 36 degrees with the long pill-box window when the klystron has achieved CW RF output power of 885kW, efficiency of 46%, and beam voltage of 85kV in present. The klystron has been optimized by simulation codes to improve better efficiency. The calculation shows the maximum efficiency is 70% using optimum parameters. (Conclusions)It was shown that the long pill-box window converted klystron had maximum transmission power that was fully satisfied with specifications of the high power klystron. The klystron with these results will be manufactured and the high power test will be carried out in 1997.

A color forming performance for fabricating nanoscale patterned polymer films has been examined using electron beam direct writing (EBDW) techniques. Upon EB irradiation the poly(methyl methacrylate) film consisting of 3 wt% bis(dimethylamino)benzhydrol and the equimolar sulfonium salt has an absorption band at 560 nm, which is assigned to protonated benzhydrol. The appearance of the new band at 560 nm with an isosbestic point in the spectral changes of indicates the quantitative transformation from colorless benzhydrol to the protonated form. The film is then exposed with a raster scanning by EBDW. Upon EB irradiation they also undergo chemical changes to provide optical differentiation between the exposed and unexposed regions. The blue-colored line/space patterns of 100 - 200 nm with a dose of 10 $$mu$$C/cm$$^{2}$$ are achieved.
