Decommissioning of TEPCO's 1F is in progress according to the Roadmap. The Roadmap assigned the construction of a hot laboratory and analysis to the JAEA. The hot laboratory, Okuma Analysis and Research Center consists of the three buildings; Administrative building, the Laboratory-1 and Laboratory-2. The Laboratory-1 and Laboratory-2 are hot laboratories. Laboratory-1 is for radiometric analysis of low and medium level radioactive rubble and secondary wastes. The license of the Laboratory-1's implementation was approved by The Secretariat of the Nuclear Regulation Authority and the construction started in April 2017 and plans an operational start in 2020. Laboratory-2 provides concrete cells, steel cells for the analysis of the fuel debris and high level radioactive rubble. The Laboratory-2's major analysis items is reviewed by review meeting organized of cognoscente.

The purpose of the control rod drive mechanism seating position detector for JRR-3 is one of a method for confirming the shutdown condition of the reactor. The detector has been utilizing more than 25 years with maintenance regularly. However, it is occurred some trouble recently. Moreover, the detector has already been end of manufacture, and even in the successor detector, it unsuitable for the control rod drive mechanism of JRR-3 was confirmed. Therefore, it was necessary to select the adequate detector to the control rod drive mechanism of JRR-3. Accordingly, we built a test device with the aim of verify several detectors for integrity and function. At the time of the test for performance confirmation, it was occurred unexpected problems. Nevertheless, we devise improvement of the problems and took measures. Thus we were able to collect adequate detector for JRR-3 and replace to enhanced detector. This paper reports the Enhanced of Control rod drive mechanism seat position detector.

The power supply for reactor control rod magnet of JRR-3 has been utilized for generating electromagnetic power of control rod coil and that was using more than 25 years. The power supply was required for provide to stabilize DC current. Therefore, we adopted series regulator method. Although, the power supply generate a high heat. Then, we decided to create switching regulator method in order to improve the aging and heat generation of the series regulator method. This paper reports the replacement of switching regulator method.

In this study, neutron imaging experiment was performed using NOBORU, BL10 of MLF at J-PARC. Four kinds of cast duplex stainless steel with ferrite and austenite microstructure were studied here, which were produced by different casting method at different temperature. Firstly, two-dimensional scintillation detector using wavelength-shifting fibers with pixel size of 0.52 mm 0.52 mm and illuminated area 55 mm 55 mm was used for data collection. Then, measurement by Micro Pixel Chamber based neutron imaging detector having higher spatial resolution about 0.2 mm was conducted. Data analysis code RITS (Rietveld Imaging of Transmission Spectra) will be used for microstructure including crystalline phase, lattice strain, crystallite size, texture evaluation.

The J-PARC 3-50BT line is the beam transport line from 3-GeV rapid-cycling synchrotron (RCS) to 50-GeV main ring (MR). The RCS is the high-intensity proton accelerator, where designed beam power is 1 MW, and has the complex source of space charge effect, etc. Therefore, the uncontrolled emittance growth and beam halo increase nonlinearly with the increasing the beam power. Additionally, the physical aperture of MR with 81 mm mrad is smaller than that of RCS with 486 mm mrad. Therefore, the 3-50BT line has the collimators in order to remove the tail or halo of the extracted beam from the RCS. The designed collimator aperture is 54 mm mrad. It is required to measure and optimize the optics parameters in the collimator area for taking full advantage of the beam collimation. Especially, it is very important to make the dispersion functions free in the collimator area and optimize the beta function. This paper will introduce the method of optics measurement and report the result of the measurement and optimization based on the simulation.
