The ${{it in vivo}}$ dosimeter system is capable of real-time, accurate, and precise measurement under stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) conditions. The probe is smaller than a conventional dosimeter, has excellent spatial resolution, and can be valuable in SBRT with a steep dose distribution over a small field. The developed PSP dosimeter system appears to be suitable for in vivo SBRT dosimetry.

Nakamura, Hironobu; Shimizu, Yasuyuki; Makino, Risa; Mukai, Yasunobu; Ishiyama, Koichi; Kurita, Tsutomu; Ikeda, Atsushi*; Yamaguchi, Katsuhiro*

Proceedings of INMM 57th Annual Meeting (Internet), 9 Pages, 2016/07

Regarding the Integrated Safeguards (IS) in Japan, the implementation of IS has been started on September 2004, and the concept has been introduced to the JNC-1 facilities since August 2008. Then, random interim inspection with short notice and reducing person-days of inspection (PDI) was introduced instead of traditional scheduled IIV in order to improve deterrence of the nuclear material diversion with timeliness goal. And it was agreed that it should be evaluated and reviewed because RII was designed when inter-campaign. In JAEA, we decided to restart PCDF campaign to reduce potential safety risks of reprocessing facilities. To adopt the RII scheme to the process operation in campaign, JAEA proposed a new scheme to JSGO and IAEA without increasing PDI and reducing detection probability. As a result of the discussion, it was agreed and successfully introduced since March 2014. The new scheme for PCDF consists of scheduled inspection (fixed-day RII), reduction of estimated material for the verification, implementation of remote monitoring with data provision, improvement of operational status check list, introduction of NRTA and MC&A data declaration with timeliness. Though the operator's workloads for information provision were increased, we could manage to balance IS requirement with implementation of our operation successfully. This contribution was helped to safeguards implementation and our operation for 2 years.

Sekine, Megumi; Matsuki, Takuya; Tanigawa, Masafumi; Tsutagi, Koichi; Mukai, Yasunobu; Shimizu, Yasuyuki; Nakamura, Hironobu; Tomikawa, Hirofumi

Proceedings of INMM 57th Annual Meeting (Internet), 9 Pages, 2016/07

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has proposed in its long-term research and development plan, development of a real-time measurement technology to monitor and verify nuclear material movement continuously as part of an advanced approach to effectively and efficiently conduct safeguards for reprocessing facilities. In the reprocessing plant, since solutions containing both Pu and FP exist, a new detector development project to monitor Pu with FP is being carried out from 2015 to 2017. This project is mainly conducted in the High Active Liquid Waste Storage (HALWS) in Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP). In this paper, an overview of the technology development, simulation results of preliminary evaluation of the characteristics of radiation emitted from the HALW tank at TRP, and the future research plan are presented.

Improvement of INVS measurement uncertainty for Pu nitrate solution

Makino, Risa; Swinhoe, M. T.*; Suzuki, Hisanori; Ikeda, Atsushi*; Menlove, H. O.*; Shimizu, Yasuyuki; Nakamura, Hironobu

Kaku Busshitsu Kanri Gakkai (INMM) Nippon Shibu Dai-35-Kai Nenji Taikai Rombunshu (Internet), 9 Pages, 2015/01

The Inventory Verification Sample system (INVS) is a non-destructive assay system for samples to quantify the Pu amount in Pu nitrate solutions and MOX with 31.3% of counting efficiency. It has been used for IAEA verification measurement for many years at the Plutonium Conversion Development Facility for the samples taken at the timing of PIV etc. as a partial defects verification system (uncertainty: about 3-5%). If the measurement uncertainty can be improved (to $$sim$$1%), it is expected that the usage can be extended to the operator's own measurements in MC&A to reduce the number of destructive analyses. In order to improve the measurement uncertainty for solution samples, after optimization of detector parameter and sample position, we conducted 3 different types of calibration method that is passive calibration curve, known-$$alpha$$ and multiplicity method to achieve the target uncertainty. To perform calibration and control the measurement quality, MOX fuel pellets with known Pu amount are fabricated and used. In the range of concentration of typical solution samples, we could confirm good correlations between measured doubles and $$^{240}$$Pu effective mass in the three methods. Especially, it was confirmed that the conventional calibration curve method could meet our target uncertainty ($$sim$$1%).

Utilization of process monitoring data in the Tokai Reprocessing Plant for future nuclear security

Shimizu, Yasuyuki; Yamazaki, Katsuyuki; Kimura, Takashi; Endo, Yuji; Nakamura, Hironobu

Proceedings of INMM 54th Annual Meeting (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2013/07

Japanese regulation of reprocessing safety and security was revised in March 2012, and almost all requirements except for nuclear material accountancy and control described in the INFCIRC225/rev.5 are included into the regulation. We have many things to do to meet the requirements within 2 years pursuant to the regulation. Separately from the revised regulation, we think that utilizing the process monitoring data not only for the safety control but also for the nuclear material security would be useful in establishing more effective and efficient nuclear material security. Since we observe the process monitoring data to confirm the operational condition including unusual change for the safety purpose, it is though that the various alarm information through the process monitoring data help to detect the risk of sabotage and unauthorized removal. As future challenge, we would like to establish a possible method of utilizing the process monitoring data in combination with the physical protection to make it possible to give more effective and efficient nuclear material security.

The dominant issue for the the modification program of JT-60 (JT-60SC) is to demonstrate the steady state reactor relevant plasma operation. Physics design on plasma parameters, operation scenarios, and the plasma control method are investigated for the achievement of high-$$beta$$. Engineering design and the R&D on the superconducting magnet coils, radiation shield, and vacuum vessel are performed. Recent progress in such physics and technology developments is presented.

High-spin states in $$^{183}$$Os have been studied using the 170Er(18O,5n) reaction at a beam energy of 85 MeV. Nine rotational bands based on 1-, 3-, 5- and 7-quasiparticle excitations have been observed. Nilsson configurations are assigned for the newly observed bands using g-factors deduced from M1/E2 branching ratios within the bands. In addition, two isomers with K=(43/2+) and (43/2-) have been identified. The K=(43/2+) isomer decays directly to the K=9/2+ ground state band with a large difference in the $$K$$ quantum number, $$mitDelta K=$$17. The decay rates are disccused in terms of a tunneling model where high-$$K$$ (isomeric) and low-$$K$$ states interact via fluctuations towards triaxial nuclear shapes.

In the ML-EM for PIXE-CT, energy loss of incident particles and absorption of X-rays affect must be estimated using STIM-CT. This paper shows the appropriateness and the expected spatial resolution of this method are evaluated by a computer simulation and some practical experiments using 3 MeV proton microbeam with a diameter of 1$$mu$$m at TIARA. The PIXE-CT experiments were carried out using a dried unicellulate and human lung tissue as a test sample placed on an automatic rotation stage, which made a full turn by rotating 360$$^{circ}$$ at each step of 18$$^{circ}$$ in vacuum. In the simulation, X-ray yield and absorption were calculated using density distribution of two-dimensional Shepp phantom. The results of those simulation and experiments have proved that this method is effective in PIXE-CT.
