We had been conducting a research on risk perception and confidence-building among stakeholders regarding environmental remediation of Uranium mine site and disposal of industrial waste from FY 2007. FY 2011, we study how the Great East Japan Earthquake and Fukushima nuclear accident affects public risk perception. Therefore, a questionnaire survey on public risk perception of environmental remediation of Uranium mine site and disposal of the industrial waste in Okayama prefecture had been carried out. Another questionnaire survey on public risk perception of the disposal of disaster waste for residents in Okayama prefecture has been carried out. Following are some of the results: (1) For risk perception regarding environmental remediation of Uranium mine site, "knowledge of radiation" and "Concern about radioactive material" and "Information literacy" did not change significantly. Conversely trust in "Public administration" and "facility owner" and "Science and technology" was decreased significantly. (2) For risk perception regarding disaster waste, many people recognize the need for wide area disposal of disaster waste. Conversely, many residents are concerned about radioactive materials.

Alignment of superconducting cavities is one of the important issues for linear collider and/or future light source like ERL and X-FEL. To measure the cavity displacement under cooling to liquid He temperature more precisely, we newly developed the position monitor based on the measurement of the interference of light between the measurement target and the reference point. We applied this monitor to the main linac cryomodule of Compact ERL (cERL) and successfully measured the displacement during 2 K cooling with the resolution of 10 $$mu$$m.

Proceedings of 5th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC '14) (Internet), p.2531 - 2533, 2014/07

For the main linac of ERL, high loaded Q (QL) operation is desirable to reduce the input generator power. In such operation mode, the suppression of the micophonics is important to stabilize RF amplitude and phase. One of reasons which causes microphonics is mechanical vibration, which changes the cavity frequency. The vibrations of the cavities, the cryomodule and the floor were investigated and compared with the microphnics data taken during cERL operation.

Sato, Toshinori; Mikake, Shinichiro; Noda, Masaru*; Kobayashi, Shinji*

Tonneru To Chika, 45(7), p.501 - 510, 2014/07

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency conducts studies and research associated with the excavation of underground research facility at the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory in Mizunami City, Gifu Prefecture. The research laboratory is an underground facility consisting of two shafts and some drifts and excavation has currently extended to a depth of 500 m. This report contains the evaluation results of measures to control the welling of water and measures to prevent ground collapse based on construction records up to now. For measures to control the welling of water, we carried out pre-grouting from umbrella-shaped grouthing holes placed at the bottom of the shaft and observed improvements in given permeability. For measures to prevent ground collapse, we conducted safe shaft sinking along faults by combining reinforecement works using rock bolts and fore-poling works using silica-resin grouting. Both measures were conducted using a shaft sinking drill carriage "Shaft Jumbo" that made it possible to efficiently incorporate short step shaft sinking cycles.

Electron beam induced soft-X-ray emission spectroscopy (SXES) by using a grating spectrometer has been introduced to a conventional scanning electron microscope (SEM) for characterizing desired specimen areas of bulk materials. The spectrometer was designed as a grazing-incidence flat-field optics by using aberration corrected (varied-line-spacing) gratings and a multi-channel-plate detector combined with a charge-coupled-device camera, which has already applied for a transmission electron microscope. The best resolution was confirmed as 0.13 eV at Mg L-emission (50 eV), which value is comparable to that of recent dedicated electron energy-loss spectroscopy instruments. This SXES-SEM instrument presents density of states of simple metals of bulk Mg and Li. Apparent band structure effects have been observed in Si L-emission of Si-wafer, P L-emission of GaP-wafer, and Al L-emissions of intermetallic compounds of AlCo, AlPd, Al$$_{2}$$Pt, and Al$$_{2}$$Au.

When a nuclear emergency occurs in Japan, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has the responsibility of providing technical support to the National government, local governments, police, fire stations and nuclear operators etc., because the JAEA has been designated as the Designated Public Institution under the Basic Act on Disaster Control Measures and the Act on Response to Armed Attack Situations, etc.. The Nuclear Emergency Assistance and Training Center (NEAT) of JAEA provides a comprehensive range of technical support activities to an Off-Site Center in case of a nuclear emergency. Specifically, NEAT gives technical advice and information, dispatches specialists as required, and supplies the National Government and local governments with emergency equipments and materials. NEAT provides various exercise and training courses concerning nuclear disaster prevention to those personnel taking an active part in emergency response organizations at normal times. The tasks of NEAT, with its past experiences as a designated public institution including the responses to TEPCO's Fukushima Accident, have been shifted to technical supports to the national government for strengthening its abilities to emergency responses; the NEAT therefore focused on maintenance and operation of its functions, and strengthening its response abilities in cooperation with the national government. This annual report summarized these activities of JAEA/NEAT in the fiscal year 2012.

Alignment of superconducting cavities is one of the important issues for linear collider and/or future light source like ERL and X-FEL. To measure the cavity displacement under cooling to liquid He temperature more precisely, we newly developed the position monitor by using white light interferometer. This monitor is based on the measurement of the interference of light between the measurement target and the reference point. It can measure the position from the outside of the cryomodule. We applied this monitor to the main linac cryomodule of Compact ERL (cERL) and successfully measured the displacement during 2 K cooling with the resolution of 10 $$mu$$m.
