Recently, a heavy-ion program as a future J-PARC project has been discussed. The main goals of the program are to explore the QCD phase diagram at highbaryon density with heavy ions up to uranium at the beam energies of around 10A GeV. We are planning to focus on the electron and muon measurements and rare probe search such asmulti-strangeness and charmed hadrons with high beam rates at J-PARC. A heavy-ionacceleration scheme has been considered with a new heavy-ion linac and a new booster ring, with the existing 3-GeV Rapid-Cycling Synchrotron, and the 30-GeV Main Ring synchrotron. An overview of the heavy-ion program and accelerator design, as well as physics goals and conceptual design of the experiments are presented.

The great amount of water used for cooling the stricken power reactors at Fukushima Dai-ichi has resulted in accumulation of "remaining water". As the remaining water is subsequently contaminated by FPs, etc., it is necessary to decontaminate it in order to reduce the volume of liquid radioactive waste and to reuse it again for cooling the reactors. Various techniques are being applied to remove FP, etc. and to make stable waste forms. One of the methods using the iron phosphate glass as a medium is being developed to stabilize the strontium-bearing sludge whose main component is BaSO$$_{4}$$. From the results hitherto, the iron phosphate glass is regarded as a potential medium for the target sludge.

Adv.-ORIENT cycle strategy has been proposed as a basic concept for trinitarian research on separation, transmutation and utilization of nuclides and elements based on FBR fuel cycle. Validation of principal separation method and related safety research were performed from 2006 through 2011 as Phase I program. First, more than 90% of Cs could be recovered from the actual spent fuel [IXC(I) step]. The next is the adsorption of the platinum group metals (PGM), lanthanides, Am and Cm were separated by using a tertiary pyridine-type resin (TPR) as ion exchange steps [IXC(II, III, IV) steps]. The separated PGM metals will be supplied to the electrochemical extraction [CEE step]. As experiment for safety issues, Hastelloy-B at RT and Ta at 90$$^{circ}$$C were confirmed their anti-corrosive in highly concentrated HCl media. Thermo-chemical stability for TPR was verified. Issues to be solved for next phase based on the final results of phase I program.

Several technical R&D activities related to the blanket materials are newly launched as a part of the Broader Approach (BA) activities, which was initiated by the EU and Japan. According to the common interests of these parties for DEMO, R&Ds on reduced activation ferritic/martensitic (RAFM) steels as structural material, SiCf/SiC composites as a flow channel insert material and/or alternative structural material, advanced tritium breeders and neutron multipliers, and tritium technology are carried out through the BA DEMO R&D program, in order to establish the technical bases on the blanket materials and the tritium technology required for DEMO design. This paper describes overall schedule of those R&D activities and recent progress in Japan carried out by JAEA as the domestic implementing agency on BA, collaborating with Japanese universities and other research institutes.

A SiC/SiC composite is one of attractive candidates for fission and nuclear fusion due to the proven irradiation tolerance coupled with the excellent baseline properties as refractory ceramics. Considering the inherent anisotropy of composites due to the variety of fabric architecture, it is required to identify the crack propagation behavior of SiC/SiC composites by various failure modes. This study aims to evaluate crack propagation behavior by the axial and off-axial tensile/compressive tests, Iosipescu test for in-plane shear, double-notch-shear test for inter-laminar shear and diametral compression test for inter-laminar detachment. Preliminary test results identified strength anisotropy maps, implying that the composites failed by the mixed modes. Specifically, it was found that the in-plane/inter-laminar shear modes had significant impacts on the results.

Transverse momentum distributions and yields for $$pi^{pm}, K^{pm}, p$$, and $$bar{p}$$ in $$p + p$$ collisions at $$sqrt{s}$$ = 200 and 62.4 GeV at midrapidity are measured by the PHENIX experiment at the RHIC. We present the inverse slope parameter, mean transverse momentum, and yield per unit rapidity at each energy, and compare them to other measurements at different $$sqrt{s}$$ collisions. We also present the scaling properties such as $$m_T$$ and $$x_T$$ scaling and discuss the mechanism of the particle production in $$p + p$$ collisions. The measured spectra are compared to next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations.

Measurements of electrons from the decay of open-heavy-flavor mesons have shown that the yields are suppressed in Au+Au collisions compared to expectations from binary-scaled $$p+p$$ collisions. Here we extend these studies to two particle correlations where one particle is an electron from the decay of a heavy flavor meson and the other is a charged hadron from either the decay of the heavy meson or from jet fragmentation. These measurements provide more detailed information about the interaction between heavy quarks and the quark-gluon matter. We find the away-side-jet shape and yield to be modified in Au+Au collisions compared to $$p+p$$ collisions.

The Ru, Rh, Pd, Tc, Mo, Cs, Sr and Lanthanides (Lns) etc. are rich in the spent fuel and are categorized as nuclear rare metal (NRM). Typical yields of Pd, Ru, Rh and Tc will reach to around 11kg, 13kg, 4kg and 3kg, respectively per metric ton of the reference fast reactor spent fuel. Especially, Mo and Lns (Dy, Er, Yb) are non-radioactive and non-exothermic elements at the separation after 5 years cooling. Stable isotopes like $$^{99}$$Ru, $$^{102}$$Ru, $$^{103}$$Rh, $$^{106}$$Pd and $$^{107}$$Ag can be obtained without isotope separation if proper element separation of Ru/Pd, Rh/Ru, Pd/Ag, Tc/Ru will be applied. In modern utilization of the NRM, the first step is the separation from the high level liquid wastes (HLLW), and catalytic electrolytic extraction (CEE) method is applicable. The paper suggests the reality of the recycle of the NRM, with a recommendation to use light platinum group (Pt-G) and Tc after proper stockpile.

A new class SiC/SiC composite have been developed for fusion. While the development efforts has resulted in a radiation-resistant SiC/SiC, development continues to improve on engineering properties of this composite. With the completion of the "proof-of-principal" phase, the R&D on SiC/SiC is now shifting to the more pragmatic phase of material data-basing. Critical application issues still remain, including (1) heavy irradiation effect with considerations of He/H synergistic effects and irradiation creep, (2) erosion-corrosion behavior, (3) nuclear transmutation other than He/H, and (4) joining. Understanding the irradiation effect on electrical conductivity is another important issue for the FCI application. Along with the review in material development, characterization, and irradiation effect studies, this paper provides an introductive work toward standardization of the test methodology.
