We report in-plane orientation control of newly developed high-mobility organic semiconductor: 2,7-diphenyl[1]benzothieno[3,2-$$b$$][1]benzothiophene (DPh-BTBT). As previously reported on monolayer pentacene, it was revealed that bunched steps on vicinal Si(111) with bismuth termination break the surface symmetry and reduce three-fold symmetry of DPh-BTBT grains into quasi-single orientation. Interestingly, the critical step height necessary for the orientation control was different from that of pentacene. We examined several mechanisms of orientation control and concluded that the facet nano structure fabricated by step bunching is working as an anisotropic template. We will also show the wettability control of bismuth terminated silicon surface and show that the growth mode of DPh-BTBT is dependent on the surface nanostructure of Bi-Si.

Vacuum insulation is a common issue for the accelerator and the HV bushing for the ITER NBI. The HV bushing has five-stage structure and each stage consists of double-layered insulators. Hence, several triple points exist around the insulators. To reduce electric field at those points simultaneously, three types of stress ring were developed. In voltage holding test of a full-scale mockup equipped with those stress rings, 120% of rated voltage was sustained and the voltage holding capability required in ITER was verified. In the MeV accelerator, voltage holding capability was not sufficient due to breakdown triggered by electric field concentration at edge and corner on grid components. By extending gap length, 1 MV was sustained in vacuum. Furthermore, with new accelerator grids which compensates beam deflection due to magnetic field and space charge repulsion between beamlets, 980 keV, 185 A/m$$^{2}$$ H$$^{-}$$ ion beam acceleration was demonstrated, which was close to ITER requirement.

JAEA has developed the MeV accelerator to demonstrate 1 MeV, 200 A/m$$^{2}$$ H$$^{-}$$ ion beam acceleration required for ITER NBI. A key to realize such a high power accelerator is improvement of voltage holding capability. Based on detailed investigation of the voltage holding characteristics, MeV accelerator was modified to reduce electric field concentration by extending gaps between the grid supports and increasing curvature radiuses at the support corners. After the modifications, accelerator succeeded in sustaining -1 MV in vacuum without beam acceleration. Moreover, beam deflection due to the magnetic field for electron suppression and space charge repulsion was compensated by aperture displacement technique. As the result, beam deflection was compensated and voltage holding during the beam acceleration was improved. Beam parameter of the MeV accelerator was increased to 980 keV, 185 A/m$$^{2}$$, which is close to the requirement of ITER accelerator.

In the NBI for large fusion devices, production of uniform negative ion beam is one of important issues. A physical model is proposed to understand the non-uniformity. It has been qualitatively shown that the non-uniform beam intensity is due to the following process; (1) formation of non-uniform EEDF, (2) localized production of hydrogen atoms/ions (H$$^0$$/H$$^+$$) due to (1), (3) non-uniform flux of H$$^0$$/H$$^+$$ to the PG and (4) localized surface production of negative ions. However, in the past studies, the EEDF was assumed as two temperature Maxwellian distribution from measurements. Thus effects of high energy electrons are not taken into account precisely. In the present research, local EEDF is calculated by the 3D Monte-Carlo kinetic model which takes into account the spatial and magnetic configurations of the real negative ion source. The numerical result show that high energy component of the EEDF enhances the spatial non-uniformity in the production rate of H$$^0$$/H$$^+$$.

Lysine acetylation is one of the most common protein post transcriptional modifications. The acetylation effects of lysine residues on Ku protein were examined herein applying several computer simulation techniques. Acetylation of the lysine residues did not reduce the affinity between Ku and its substrate, DNA, in spite of the fact that the substitution of lysine with glutamine (KQ mutant) reduced the affinity of Ku for DNA, or the substitution of lysine with arginine (KR mutant) did not reduce it, as previously reported in experimental studies. These results suggest that the effects of in vivo acetylation may be overestimated when the KQ mutant is employed in mimicry of the acetylated protein.

At JAEA, MeV accelerator has been developed as a proof-of-principle accelerator for ITER NBI. To achieve the acceleration of 1 MeV, 200 A/m$$^{2}$$ beam required for ITER, improvement of the voltage holding capability is essential. Review of voltage holding results ever obtained with various geometries of the accelerators showed that voltage holding capability was about a half of that for ideal small electrode. This is due to local electric field concentration in the accelerators, such as edge and corner between grids and its support structures. Based on these results, accelerator was modified to reduce the electric field concentration by reshaping the support structures and expanding the gap length. After the modifications, voltage holding capability in vacuum was increased from 835 kV to 1 MV. Voltage holding progressed the energy and current to 879 keV, 0.36 A (157 A/m$$^{2}$$).

In a five stage multi-aperture and multi-grid (MAMuG) accelerator in JAEA, beam acceleration tests are in progress toward 1 MeV, 200 A/m$$^{2}$$ H$$^{-}$$ ion beams for ITER. The 1 MV voltage holding has been successfully demonstrated for 4000 s with the accelerator of expanded gap length that lowered local electric field concentrations. The led to increase of the beam energy up to 900 keV-level. However, it was found that beamlets were deflected more in long gaps and direct interceptions of the deflected beamlet caused breakdowns. The beamlet deflection and its compensation methods were studied utilizing a three-dimensional multi beamlet analysis. The analysis showed that the 1 MeV beam can be compensated by a combination of the aperture offset of 0.8 mm applied in the electron suppression (ESG) and the metal bar called a field shaping plate with a thickness of 1 mm attached beneath the ESG. The paper reports analytical predictions and experimental results of the MAMuG accelerator.

High voltage (HV) bushing in the ITER NBI is one of critical components, which acts as a feedthrough for electric power and cooling water from the -1 MV power supply in SF$$_{6}$$ gas to beam source inside vacuum. JAEA has overcome a longstanding issue on manufacturing of a large bore ceramic ring with 1.56 m in diameter as the insulator of the five-stage HV bushing. Joining method of the ceramic and metal flange with thick Kovar plate to form vacuum boundary was also developed. By assembling components, a full-size mockup bushing simulating one stage of the HV bushing was successfully manufactured. In the voltage holding test, the high voltage of 240 kV including the margin of 20 % of a rated voltage was sustained for 3600 s without breakdown, and the voltage holding capability required in ITER was successfully verified.

JAEA-Review 2010-065, JAEA Takasaki Annual Report 2009, P. 22, 2011/01

There are a lot of restrictions of electric installations in a high radiation environment. For example longevity of electric devices would be shortened remarkably in a high radiation environment. It becomes impossible also for lighting equipments to keep an original function under a high radiological environment due to deterioration of insulation resistance of ballasts and luminous flux decrease of lamps, etc. The authors developed radiation-resistant lighting. This research aims to verify those functionality and safety under $$gamma$$-ray irradiation conditions.

In ITER Neutral Beam (NB) injection system, the negative ion source and the accelerator should be cooled to generate high energy and high power beam for the prolonged operation. Those devices will be settled at high electric potential of -1 MV and an water choke is needed in the cooling water line to insulate the high voltage. The water choke for ITER should meet the following specifications; high water pressure (2 MPa) and high leak current (several ten mA) due to the reduction of resistivity in hot water (65 $$^{circ}$$C), etc. So, we developed a ceramic insulation tube for the water choke of ITER NB system and it's performance was confirmed by mechanical and withstand voltage tests. From the test results, it was confirmed the developed ceramic tube has sufficient performance ($$>$$110 kV/tube) as a part of ITER water choke. The anti-corrosion and anti-dissolution of the sealing materials in the ceramic tube was also confirmed under the high leak current condition.

In a MeV accelerator test for the ITER neutral beam injector (NBI), beam acceleration tests are progressed toward 1 MeV, 200 A/m$$^2$$ H$$^-$$ ion beams. As results of suppression of breakdowns due to local electric field concentrations and suppression of direct interception of deflected beamlets due to magnetic field and space charge repulsion, the beam parameters increased from 0.8 MeV to 0.98 MeV, 185 A/m$$^2$$. This is achieving the target value. After this achievement, the results of the MeV accelerator are applied to the ITER accelerator design.
