We have upgraded a 3-MeV linac at J-PARC. The ion source is same as the J-PARC linac's, and the old 30-mA RFQ is replaced by a spare 50-mA RFQ, therefore, the beam energy is 3 MeV and the nominal beam current is 50 mA. The main purpose of this system is to test the spare RFQ, but also used for testing of various components required in order to keep the stable operation of the J-PARC accelerator. The accelerator has been already commissioned, and measurement programs have been started. In this paper, present status of this 3-MeV linac is presented.

We compared seven atmospheric transport model results for Cs released during the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. All the results had been submitted for a model intercomparison project of the Science Council of Japan in 2014. We assessed model performance by comparing model results with observed hourly atmospheric concentrations of Cs, focusing on nine plumes over the Tohoku and Kanto regions. The results showed that model performance for Cs concentrations was highly variable among models and plumes. We also assessed model performance for accumulated Cs deposition. Simulated areas of high deposition were consistent with the plume pathways, though the models that best simulated Cs concentrations were different from those that best simulated deposition. The ensemble mean of all models consistently reproduced Cs concentrations and deposition well, suggesting that use of a multimodel ensemble results in more effective and consistent model performance.

Nuclear and magnetic structure and full magnon dispersions of yttrium iron garnet YFeO have been studied by neutron scattering. The lowest-energy dispersion below 14 meV exhibits a quadratic dispersion as expected from ferromagnetic magnons. The imaginary part of -integrated dynamical spin susceptibility "() exhibits a square-root energy-dependence in the low energies. The magnon density of state is estimated from the "() obtained on an absolute scale. The value is consistent with a single chirality mode for the magnon branch expected theoretically.

Radiation response is one of the important properties for space solar cells. It should be well understood so as to accurately predict their degradation in orbit and also to improve their radiation tolerance. Recently, a phenomenon, recovery from the radiation degradation by light soaking, on inverted metamorphic (IMM) triple-junction (3J) solar cells was found out. In this work, the light soaking annealing effects on electron irradiated IMM 3J solar cells are reported. IMM 3J solar cells irradiated with 1 MeV electrons with the fluence of 310 e/cm showed the recovery of open-circuit voltage, Voc, up to 43 mV after light (AM0, 1 sun) soaking of 3 hours. The increment of the electroluminescence intensity for InGaP in the IMM 3J cells due to the light soaking suggests that the Voc recovery occurs in InGaP top-cell rather than GaAs middle-cell or InGaAs bottom-cell.

Heavy particle irradiation can produce complex DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) within the particle trajectory. Additionally, secondary electrons, termed delta-electrons, can create low linear energy transfer (LET) damage distant from the track. Using imaging with deconvolution, we show that at 8 hours after exposure to Fe ions, H2AX foci forming at DSBs within the particle track are large and encompass multiple smaller and closely localised foci, which we designate as clustered H2AX foci. We also identified simple H2AX foci distant from the track. They are rapidly repaired. Clustered H2AX foci induced by heavy particle radiation cause prolonged checkpoint arrest compared to simple H2AX foci. However, mitotic entry was observed when 10 clustered foci remain. Thus, cells can progress into mitosis with multiple clusters of DSBs following the traversal of a heavy particle.

An efficient dissolution process was established for future reprocessing in which MOX fuels with high plutonium contents and dissolver solution with high heavy-metal concentrations will be treated. This dissolution process involves short stroke shearing of fuels (10 mm in length). The dissolution kinetics of irradiated mixed-oxide fuels and the effects of the Pu content, heavy-metal concentration and fuel form on the dissolution rate were investigated. Irradiated fuel was decreased with increasing Pu content. Kinetic analysis based on the fragmentation model indicated that the dissolution rate of irradiated fuel was affected not only by the volume ratio of liquid to solid ( ratio), but also by the exposed surface area ( ratio). The penetration rate of nitric acid is expected to be decreased at high heavy-metal concentrations by a reduction in the ratio, but enhanced by shearing the fuel pieces with short strokes and thus enlarging the ratio.

The spin-parity and neutron configuration of the ground state of No have been identified through -decay spectroscopy. The No is the nucleus with the largest neutron number whose spin-parities and single-particle configurations have ever been identified. The neutron 9/2 configuration was assigned to the ground state of No as well as to the 231.4 keV level in Fm. This allowed us to establish energy spacings and order of the neutron single-particle orbitals in such heaviest nuclear region. The appearance of the 9/2 ground state at =157 implies that the order of the neutron orbitals between the =152 and 162 deformed shell gaps should change considerably with increasing neutron number.

The effects of Pu content were studied on the dissolution rate of irradiated mixed oxide fuel and on the mass of insoluble residue. Kinetic analysis was conducted being based on the surface-reaction model to estimate the dissolution rate of irradiated fuels with Pu contents less than 30% and with burn-up ranging from 40.1 - 63.7 GWD/t. The dissolution rate of irradiated mixed-oxide fuels was found to decrease exponentially with an increase of the Pu content, but those were estimated to be up to 1000 times larger than those of non-irradiated fuels with the same Pu content. The amount of insoluble residue was found to increase with increase of the Pu content, possibly due to the promotion of fission product formation. Up to 1.3% of initial heavy metal was remained as the residue.
