Oyo Chishitsu, 62(2), p.104 - 112, 2021/06

We attempted to discriminate between active and non-active faults by linear discriminant analysis using the chemical composition data of fault gouges in Japan, and then examined the elements that represent the difference between them and better discriminants. As a result, the multiple discriminants obtained could discriminate between them with high probability. In addition, the generalization performance of these discriminants is discussed, and the discriminants that can be expected to have high discriminant performance for unknown samples are presented. Also, from the combination of elements common to these discriminants, we narrowed down the number of elements that represent the difference between active and non-active faults to 6, and showed that the combination of TiO$$_{2}$$ and Sr contributing the most to the discrimination. The method applied in this study is an innovative one that can discriminate the activity by chemical analysis of fault rocks that are universally present in the bedrock.

Searching for effective pathways for the production of proton- and neutron-rich isotopes through an optimal combination of reaction mechanism and energy is one of the main driving forces behind experimental and theoretical nuclear reaction studies as well as for practical applications in nuclear transmutation of radioactive waste. We report on a study on incomplete fusion induced by deuteron, which contains one proton and one neutron with a weak binding energy and is easily broken up. This reaction study was achieved by measuring directly the cross sections for both proton and deuteron for $$^{107}$$Pd at 50 MeV/u via inverse kinematics technique. The results provide direct experimental evidence for the onset of a cross-section enhancement at high energy, indicating the potential of incomplete fusion induced by loosely-bound nuclei for creating proton-rich isotopes and nuclear transmutation of radioactive waste.

This paper outlines an advanced procedure involving the chemical Th-U-total Pb isochron method (CHIME) dating of monazite using a field-emission electron probe microanalyzer (FE-EPMA) equipped with spectrometers of 100 mm Rowland circle (R$$_{rm R}$$) radius. The higher count rate of R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm wavelength dispersive spectrometer (WDS) compared to R$$_{rm R}$$ = 140 mm WDS enables measurements to be taken in a shorter time. CHIME dating using R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm WDS had previously been difficult because of lower resolution compared to that of R$$_{rm R}$$ = 140 mm WDS. This problem has been overcome by a new interference correction method using natural monazites.

The International Standard, ISO 4037-1, is applied worldwide for setting the condition of X-ray reference fields to be used for the performance test of radiation measuring instruments for radiation protection. X-ray reference fields were established at the Facility of Radiation Standard in Nuclear Science Research Institute in 2003 and had been operated. Recently, we rebuilt the X-ray reference fields by replacing the X-ray tube with a new model due to the damage of the old one of the middle-hard X-ray irradiation device. We have established three series of medium-hard X-ray reference fields, Narrow, Wide and High air-kerma series with 27 radiation qualities, based on ISO 4037-1. This article described quality of the X-ray fields, X-ray spectra, conversion coefficients to the dose equivalent from Air-kerma and comparison with the quality of ISO 4037-1 in the X-ray fields of medium-hard X-ray voltages ranging from 20 kV to 300 kV. Result of experiments, these X-ray reference fields were well agreed with the condition of the international standard. As a result, these X-ray reference fields were found to be used to carry out the performance test, standard irradiation based on the international standard, and an intercomparison experiment with the reference laboratories in the world.

In the Japanese Industrial Standard, JIS Z 4511 sets the condition of X-ray reference fields to be used for the performance test of radiation measuring instruments for radiation protection. We renewed a X-ray tube of the medium-hard X-ray irradiation device that was damaged in the Facility of Radiation Standards in Nuclear Science Research Institute. Therefore, we established four series of medium-hard X-ray reference fields with quality index of 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 and 0.9 based on JIS Z 4511. In this process, quality of the X-ray fields, X-ray spectra, conversion coefficients to the dose equivalents from Air-kerma were evaluated in the medium-hard X-ray fields produced with X-ray tube voltage ranging from 20kV to 300kV. As a result, medium-hard X-ray reference fields were established that can provide the dose equivalent standard with good precision and wide range of test energy points and dose rates. We clarified these detailed data.

We report crystal growth of human immunodeficiency virus 1 protease (HIV PR) in a complex with its inhibitor KNI-272 by six different methods. Comparative analysis indicates that top-seeded solution growth (TSSG) and TSSG combined with the floating and stirring technique (TSSG-FAST) are efficient strategies for rapidly obtaining large single crystals and effectively preventing polycrystallization of the seed crystal. Neutron diffraction analysis confirmed that the crystalobtained by TSSG is a high-quality single crystal. Furthermore, crystal shape was observed to be influenced by solution flow, suggesting that the degree of supersaturation significantly affects the crystal growth direction of HIV PR complex. This finding implies that the shape of the HIV PR complex crystal might be controlled by the solution flow rate.

The neutron calibration fields is necessary to evaluate the energy response of the neutron monitors and dosimeters used in the facility such as J-PARC. The neutron calibration fields using accelerators, for the purpose, have been developed at the Facility of Radiation Standards (FRS) of JAEA-Tokai for neutrons below 20MeV and at Takasaki Ion Accelerators for Advanced Radiation Application (TIARA) of JAEA-Takasaki for those over 20 MeV. At FRS, a 4 MV Van-de-Graaff (Pelletron) accelerator is used. Up until the present, developments of the 8, 144, 250, 565 keV, 5.0 and 14.8 MeV fields have been completed. At TIARA, an AVF cyclotron is used, and three neutron fields of 45, 60 and 75 MeV are planned to be established. For the development, evaluation of the characteristics of the field have been in process.
