JAEA-Review 2013-059, JAEA Takasaki Annual Report 2012, P. 179, 2014/03

Three electrostatic accelerators at TIARA were operated on schedule in fiscal year 2012 except changing its schedule by cancellations of users. The yearly operation time of the 3 MV tandem accelerator, the 400 kV ion implanter and the 3MV single-ended accelerator were in the same levels as the ordinary one, whose operation time totaled to 2,073, 1,847 and 2,389 hours, respectively. The tandem accelerator had no trouble, whereas the ion implanter and the single-ended accelerator stopped by any troubles for one day and four days, respectively. The molecular ion beam of helium hydride was generated by the ion implanter, because the users required irradiation of several cluster ions in order to study the effect of irradiation. As a result, its intensity of beam was 50 nA at 200 kV. The ion beam of tungsten (W) at 15 MeV was accelerated by the tandem accelerator, whose intensity was 20 nA at charge state of 4+, because of the request from a researcher in the field of nuclear fusion.

JAEA-Review 2012-046, JAEA Takasaki Annual Report 2011, P. 173, 2013/01

The three electrostatic accelerators at the TIARA had no mechanical damage when the Tohoku earthquake happened on March 11, 2011. But, they could not be operated during April, due to the influence of planned power outage by TEPCO. These accelerators additionally operated on Saturday for ten days in order to compensate for the lost experiment time. As a result, the yearly operation time had kept the same level as the ordinary one. The ion beam of erbium (Er) with 11.7MeV was accelerated newly by the tandem accelerator, whose intensity was 20nA at charge state of 3+. The sequential generation/irradiation of two different kinds of fullerene ions was achieved at the ion implanter by a mixed powder method without exchange of the Freeman type ion source by the user's request.

Operation times of each accelerator are keeping the same level as in recent 10 years, Tandem accelerator, Single-ended and Ion implanter amounted to about 2,000, 2,500 and 1,900 hours, respectively. In the last fiscal year, we succeeded in maintaining the terminal voltage of the tandem accelerator to high stability for long periods by exchanging the material of a corona-probe needle to the tungsten (NPS Co.). In the ion-implanter, the oven control system equipped with the Freeman ion source was renewed. There was no trouble to affect on the machine-time in the last fiscal year, so the all planned experiments were carried out.

Hayashi, Takao; Tobita, Kenji; Nakamori, Yuko*; Orimo, Shinichi*

Journal of Nuclear Materials, 386-388, p.119 - 121, 2009/04

 Times Cited Count:64 Percentile:97.91(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)

Neutron transport calculations have been carried out to assess the capability of zirconium borohydride (Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$) and zirconium hydride (ZrH$$_{2}$$) as advanced shield materials, because excellent shields can be used to protect outer structural materials from serious activation. The neutron shielding capability of Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$ is lower than ZrH$$_{2}$$, even though the hydrogen density of Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$ is slightly higher than that of ZrH$$_{2}$$. High-Z atoms are effective in neutron shielding as well as hydrogen atoms. The combination of steel and Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$ can improve the neutron shielding capability. The combinations of (Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$ + F82H) and (ZrH$$_{2}$$ + F82H) can reduce the thickness of the shield by 6.5% and 19% compared to (water + F82H), respectively. The neutron flux for Zr(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{4}$$ is drastically reduced in the range of neutron energy below 100 eV compared to other materials, due to the effect of boron, which can lead to a reduction of radwaste from fusion reactors.

The 400 kV ion implanter at the Takasaki Ion Accelerators for Advanced Radiation Application facility (TIARA) provides ion beams for various experiments of research and development (R&D's) mainly on materials science and biotechnology using Freeman ion sources. Two methods of ionization are generally used to a Freeman ion source. In one method, a sample gas is directly fed to the plasma chamber, and in the other, vapor of a solid material having high vapor pressure is vaporized by an oven and fed. Those methods, however, can supply limited number of ion species of those required from various R&D's. We have developed new methods available to materials which are difficult to vaporize by an oven: the disc method for high melting point materials, the SF$$_{6}$$ plasma method for high melting point and low vapor pressure materials, the filament method for metals with melting point higher than 2400 $$^{circ}$$C, and one of them is chosen according to the nature of a material. Forty four ion species from hydrogen to bismuth are generated by using the Freeman ion sources to date. Furthermore, a small ECR (electron cyclotron resonance) ion source is also developed to generate multiply charged ions for acceleration to higher energies.

JAEA-Review 2008-055, JAEA Takasaki Annual Report 2007, P. 191, 2008/11

Three electrostatic accelerators were operated smoothly in FY 2007, and all the planned experiments were carried out except those canceled by users. The yearly operation time of the tandem accelerator, the single-ended accelerator and the ion implanter amounted to 1949, 2437 and 1900 hours. The high-pressure residual gas of SF$$_{6}$$ is leaking from the SF$$_{6}$$ gas handling system of the tandem accelerator. The most amount of the leak comes out when the accelerator tank pressure is high. Therefore, in order to reduce the leak by lowering the residual gas pressure, a pipe was installed to carry the gas in the high-pressure part of the system for the accelerator to the low-pressure storage tank. As to the ion implanter, Pb ion, which was requested by users, was successfully generated using oven method and accelerated with intensity of 1.5 $$mu$$A.

JAEA-Review 2006-042, JAEA Takasaki Annual Report 2005, P. 197, 2007/02

Three electrostatic accelerators were almost operated smoothly for various experiments in FY 2005. The yearly operation time of each accelerator amounts to 1974, 2359.9, 1859.9 hour for the tandem, the single-ended and the ion implanter, respectively. Main trouble was a short circuit of a part of the ion source in the single-ended accelerator. This lets to the suspension of operation for fifteen days. As features in FY 2005, the generation of the power cut by thunderbolts and large earthquakes were abounding. By this natural force, the Turbo-molecular pump was broken, experiment was interrupted and then the inspection of accelerator facility was carried out every time. New beam acceleration and improvement of each accelerator were carried out.

Neutronics assessment of advanced shield materials using metal hydride and borohydride for fusion reactors

Hayashi, Takao; Tobita, Kenji; Nishio, Satoshi; Ikeda, Kazuki*; Nakamori, Yuko*; Orimo, Shinichi*; DEMO Plant Design Team

Fusion Engineering and Design, 81(8-14), p.1285 - 1290, 2006/02

 Times Cited Count:20 Percentile:81.23(Nuclear Science & Technology)

Neutron transport calculations were carried out to evaluate the capability of metal hydrides and borohydrides as an advanced shielding material. Some hydrides indicated considerably higher hydrogen content than polyethylene and solid hydrogen. The hydrogen-rich hydrides show superior neutron shielding capability to the conventional materials. From the temperature dependence of dissociation pressure, ZrH$$_{2}$$ and TiH$$_{2}$$ can be used without releasing hydrogen at the temperature of less than 640 $$^{circ}$$C at 1 atm. ZrH$$_{2}$$ and Mg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ can reduce the thickness of the shield by 30% and 20% compared to a combination of steel and water, respectively. Mixing some hydrides with F82H produces considerable effects in $$gamma$$-ray shielding. The neutron and $$gamma$$-ray shielding capabilities decrease in order of ZrH$$_{2}$$ $$>$$ Mg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ and F82H $$>$$ TiH$$_{2}$$ and F82H $$>$$ water and F82H.
