In this work, we report on the application of a UV/EB curable resin, in proton beam writing (PBW) for the fabrication of fine neutron optics devices. The resin is a liquid at room temperature; therefore, it mixes easily with functional materials, such as neutron absorbers. However, 20-30 $$mu$$m thick neutron absorber must be required as the grating materials. So PBW is a promising technique to fabricate the neutron devices. The fabrication process is similar to lithography. The neutron absorber is gadolinium oxide (Gd$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$). Pattern exposures are performed using 3 MeV proton beams approximately 1 $$mu$$m in diameter. The irradiated areas are quickly cured by polymerization. The fabricated gratings were observed using an optical microscope. The microscopic images show that the patterns of the fabricated structures agree well with the original one. In addition, a lateral direction of the sample was observed using the scanning electron microscope (SEM). The thickness of the sample is approximately 35 $$mu$$m. In conclusion, the fabrication of grating structures is successful and the results also proved that the UV/EB curable resin is very promising material for use in PBW micromachining.

JPS Conference Proceedings (Internet), 11, p.020005_1 - 020005_6, 2016/11

We have developed novel fluorescent plates for high-resolution imaging. The devices consist of capillary plates and fine phosphor grains, namely each capillary is filled with the grains. We used the capillary plates (HAMAMATSU, J5112-25D25U1TB) as substrates. The thickness of the plate is 1 mm and the diameter of each hole is 25 $$mu$$m. The phosphor grains are sifted silver-activated zinc sulfide (ZnS:Ag). The mean particle size is approximately 7 $$mu$$m. The fabricated fluorescent plates are observed using an optical microscope and a scanning electron microscope. The observation results show that all capillaries are filled with grains very well. The imaging experiment is performed using a small X-ray source. The results show that the fluorescent plates are expected to be compatible with both spatial resolution and detection efficiency.

This paper describes an overview of our recent discovery - clear demonstration that LiF crystals can be efficiently used as a high-performance neutron imaging detector based on optically stimulated luminescence of color centers generated by neutron irradiation. It is shown that the neutron images we have obtained are almost free from granular noise, have a spatial resolution of 5.4 $$mu$$m and a linear response with a dynamic range of at least 10$$^{3}$$. The high contrast and good sensitivity of LiF crystals allow us to distinguish two holes with less than 2% transmittance difference. We propose to use such detectors in areas where high spatial resolution with high image gradation resolution is needed, including diagnostics of different plasma sources such as laser and z-pinch produced plasmas.

Proton Beam Writing (PBW) is a direct-write technique for producing high-aspect-ratio micro- and nano-structures in resist material. This technique is a promising method for micromachining of commodity plastics such as acrylic resin. In this paper, we introduce fabrication of microscopic devices made of a relatively thick ($$sim$$75 $$mu$$m) acrylic sheet. An optimization of the fluence of 3 MeV proton beam to induce the chain scission in the sheet was performed at Takasaki Advanced Radiation Research Institute, JAEA. A software program that converts image pixels into coordinates data has been developed, and a fine jigsaw puzzle was fabricated on the sheet. The piece size of jigsaw puzzle is 50 $$times$$ 50 $$mu$$m. For practical use, A line and space test-chart for spatial resolution measurement on neutron radiography was also successfully created.

A device for evaluating spatial resolution of a neutron imaging system was developed. By laser processes the line-pair patterns were fabricated on the 5 micrometer thick Gd film evaporated on a glass plate. Large line-pairs ranging from 0.2 to 2 mm wide were machined by Nd:YVO$$_{4}$$ laser with 30 micometer in spot size and displayed on a brightness field. Small line-pairs ranging from 0.01 to 0.1 mm wide were done by eximer laser as a dark field. In the results of SEM observation, although the large line-pairs machined by Nd:YVO$$_{4}$$ laser chipped on the corner of the Gd bars, difference between the measured and designed line-pair eidthe controled within 20 micormeter absolutely. In small line-pairs below 0.1 mm processed by the eximer laser, sharper edge could be formed than that in the large line-pairs. In neutron imaging tests using a LiF/ZnS(Ag) scintillator and a CCD camera system, good contrast images were obtained at brightness field even in 5 micrometer thick. Small line-pairs on the dark field were observed at a LiF single crystal detector, which has ultra-high spatial resolution around 5 micrometer. Split of the small line-pairs even in 0.01 mm wide were shown with good contrast on the image.

In neutron imaging, to enhance brightness of a neutron detector is one of the important factors which lead to shortening of imaging time, or improvement in image quality. Recently, we devised a technique to increase the light intensity of reception for a camera by adding brightness enhancement films (BEF) on the output surface of the scintillator. By using the BEF (BEF II 90/24, Vikuiti 3M), brightness was enhanced, but spatial resolution was reduced. In this study, we compared the brightness and spatial resolution using several types of BEFs with different film thicknesses and prism pitch. In brightness, although the further enhancement was observed, most influences of film thickness or a prism pitch were not recognized. In spatial resolution, when film thickness became thin, the tendency for spatial resolution to improve was recognized.

A neutron energy resolved imaging system with a time-of-flight technique has been newly developed and installed at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) with the aim to investigate more preciously and rapidly a spatial distribution of several elements and crystals in various kinds of materials or substances. A high-speed video camera (CMOS, 1300 k frame/sec) equipped system allows to obtain TOF images consecutively resolved into narrow energy ranges with a single pulsed neutrons while conventional CCD camera imaging system could obtain only one TOF image in an arbitral neutron energy region in the pulsed neutron energy region from 0.01 eV to a few keV. Qualities of the images obtained with the system, such as spatial resolution (defined by modulation transfer function, 0.8 line-pairs/mm at En 0.01 eV), dependence of the brightness on the neutron energy and measurement errors ($$sim$$2%) of the system were examined experimentally and evaluated by comparison with those of conventional imaging system. The results obtained in the experiments show that the system can visualize the neutron energy resolved images within a small error even at high speed.

中性子ラジオグラフィで標準試料として広く使用されているSensitivity Indicator(SI)をLiF結晶のカラーセンター形成による中性子イメージングに適用した。撮影はJRR-3熱中性子ラジオグラフィ装置において、SIをLiF結晶と中性子イメージングプレート(NIP)とともに直径5mmのピンホールでコリメートした熱中性子ビームに120分間照射することにより行った。過露光となったNIPからの画像読出しには連続繰返し読出し法を適用し、50$$mu$$mの画素サイズで読み出した。一方、LiFの画像は共焦点レーザー顕微鏡を用いて画素サイズ1.38$$mu$$mで読み出した。LiFとNIPにより撮影したSIの中性子透過画像を比較すると、SIのすべてのギャップ(最大250$$mu$$m,最小12.5$$mu$$m)は両者ともにはっきりと確認することができた。ステップの下にある小さな孔については、NIPでは確認できなかった。実験の結果、LiF結晶は中性子イメージング検出器として、高感度,高空間分解能,広いダイナミックレンジ等、優れた特性を有していることが確認できた。

Neutron radiography is a useful tool for visualization of water distribution in fuel cells. In this study, we prepared a high spatial resolution neutron imaging system and small-sized fuel cell, and observed the through-plane water distribution in the fuel cell after operation. Fuel cell operations were carried out while varying the gas flow rate in the constant current mode. In low flow rate conditions, voltage decreased as operation time increased, and dropped below 0.2 V at 7.5 min. In neutron images obtained after fuel cell operation, water distribution was observed around the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) at the beginning of the operation and expanded over time to the gas diffusion layer (GDL) and channel on the cathode side. In higher flow rate conditions, fuel cell operation was more stable than in the low flow rate conditions. Neutron imaging results suggest that stable fuel cell operation is attributable to water discharge due to expulsion by the gas flow.
