We identified two energetic electron precipitation (EEP) events during the growth phase of moderate substorms and estimated the mesospheric ionization rate for an EEP event for which the most comprehensive dataset from ground-based and space-born instruments was available. The mesospheric ionization signature reached below 70 km altitude and continued for ~15 min until the substorm onset, as observed by the PANSY radar and imaging riometer at Syowa Station in the Antarctic region. We also used energetic electron flux observed by the Arase and POES 15 satellites as the input for the air-shower simulation code PHITS to quantitatively estimate the mesospheric ionization rate. Combining the cutting-edge observations and simulations, we shed new light on the space weather impact of the EEP events during geomagnetically quiet times, which is important to understand the possible link between the space environment and climate.

Evaluation on laser quenching heat transfer mechanism using numerical method and improvement of quenching depth

Kitagawa, Yoshihiro; Shirahama, Takuma*; Kisohara, Naoyuki; Tsuboi, Akihiko

Dai-96-Kai Reza Kako Gakkai Koen Rombunshu (Internet), p.91 - 96, 2022/01

Laser scanning quenching is a locally and rapidly heat-treated process and has an advantage of no coolant required. Compared with conventional technique such as induction quenching, the region of laser quenching is about 0.5$$sim$$0.7mm in depth and it needs to be expanded for more applications or durability. For this purpose, the temperature distributions and transitions in materials during laser irradiation have been revealed by using a 3D heat transfer computer code, micro-structural observation and hardness transitions in depth direction. The results indicate the laser irradiation with low power and low scan speed condition allows deeper quenching area, but it also suggests the hardness of the deepest quenching area is degraded due to slow temperature decreasing rate after laser heat scanning. Multiple times continuous irradiation have been proposed and studied to resolve this hardness degradation, and maximum quenching depth of 1.4mm is obtained under three times irradiation and controlling its power and scan speed properly.

In the decommissioning of the Fukushima-Daiichi (1F) Nuclear Power Plant, it is essential to understand characteristics of the melted core materials. The estimation of boride in the real debris is of great importance to develop safe debris removal plans. Hence, it is required to investigate the amount of boron in the melted core materials with nondestructive methods. Prompt gamma-ray activation analysis (PGAA) is one of the useful techniques to determine the amount of borides by means of the 478 keV prompt gamma-ray from neutron absorption reaction of boron. Moreover, it is well known that the width of the 478 keV gamma-ray peak is typically broadened due to the Doppler effect. The degree of the broadening is affected by coexisting materials, and can be recognized by the width of the prompt gamma-ray peak. As a feasibility study, the prompt gamma-ray from boride samples were measured using the ANNRI, NOBORU, and RADEN beamlines at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Complex (J-PARC).

Transient ionization of the mesosphere was detected at around 65 km altitude during the isolated auroral expansion occurred at 2221-2226 UT on June 30, 2017. A general-purpose Monte Carlo particle transport code PHITS suggested that significant ionization is possible in the middle atmosphere due to auroral X-rays from the auroral electrons of $$<$$10 keV.

The reduction behavior of mendelevium (Md) was studied using a flow electrolytic chromatography apparatus. By applying appropriate potentials on the chromatography column, the more stable Md$$^{3+}$$ is reduced to Md$$^{2+}$$. The reduction potential of the Md$$^{3+}$$ + e$$^{-}$$ $$rightarrow$$ Md$$^{2+}$$ couple was determined to be -0.16$$pm$$0.05 V vs. a normal hydrogen electrode.

X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) measurements on thorium fluoride in molten lithium-calcium fluoride mixtures and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation of zirconium and yttrium fluoride in molten lithium-calcium fluoride mixtures have been carried out. In the molten state, coordination number of thorium and inter ionic distances between thorium and fluorine in the first neighbor are nearly constant in all mixtures. However the fluctuation factors (Debye-Waller factor and C$$_3$$ cumulant) increase until $$x$$CaF$$_2$$ = 0.17 and decrease by addition of excess CaF$$_2$$. It means that the local structure around Th$$^{4+}$$ is disordered until $$x$$CaF$$_2$$=0.17 and stabilized over $$x$$CaF$$_2$$ = 0.17. The variation of fluctuation factors is related to the number density of F$$^-$$ in ThF$$_4$$ mixtures and the stability of local structure around Th$$^{4+}$$ increases with decreasing the number density of F$$^-$$ in ThF$$_4$$ mixtures. This tendency is common to those in the ZrF$$_4$$ and YF$$_3$$ mixtures.

We report here on the successful oxidation of element 102, nobelium (No), on an atom-at-a-time scale in 0.1 M $$alpha$$-hydroxyisobutyric acid ($$alpha$$-HIB) solution using newly developed flow electrolytic column chromatography. It is found that the most stable No$$^{2+}$$ is oxidized to No$$^{3+}$$ within 3 min and that the oxidized No complex with $$alpha$$-HIB holds the trivalent state in the column above the applied potential of 1.0 V.

We developed a new apparatus for the study of electrochemical properties of the heaviest elements. The apparatus is based on a flow electrolytic cell combined with column chromatography. Glassy-carbon fibers modified with Nafion perfluorinated cation-exchange resin are used as a working electrode as well as a cation-exchanger. The elution behavior of $$^{139}$$Ce with the number of 10$$^{10}$$ atoms in 0.1 M ammonium $$alpha$$-hydroxyisobutyric acid solution from the column electrode was investigated at the applied potentials of 0.2 - 1.0 V versus the Ag/Agcl reference electrode in 1.0 M LiCl. It was found that $$^{139}$$Ce$$^{3+}$$ is successfully oxidized to $$^{139}$$Ce$$^{4+}$$ even with tracer concentration at around the redox potential determined by cyclic voltammetry for the macro amounts of Ce with 10$$^{17}$$ atoms (10$$^{-3}$$ M). The present oxidation reaction and separation of Ce$$^{4+}$$ was accomplished within a few minutes.
