X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is an analytical method to obtain elemental information by detecting fluorescence X-rays emitted from a sample irradiated with X-rays. It is possible to obtain two-dimensional elemental distribution images by scanning a sample with micro X-ray beam. In this study, we developed an XRF analytical instrument to rapidly obtain the elemental distributions for moving samples on a belt conveyor by applying the micro XRF technique. X-rays were widely irradiated to the belt conveyor. The elemental distributions were measured by scanning an X-ray detector, crossing above the belt conveyor. A collimator was attached to the top of the detector to limit the analyzing area. Both detection limit and spatial resolutions for moving directions of the detector and the belt conveyor were evaluated. Finally, it was demonstrated that the multi-elemental imaging was possible with the developed XRF instrument.

The electrochemical behavior of uranium (IV) tetrachloride in ionic liquid-DMF mixture was studied for first time in order to build a redox flow battery (RFB) using U as an electrode active material. We found a quasi-reversible U$$^{III}$$/U$$^{IV}$$ couple that could be applied to the anode reaction of the RFB.

Valence fluctuation phenomena in rare-earth intermetallic compounds have attracted attention because the quantum criticality of the valence transition has been proposed theoretically. Recently, it was found that $$beta$$-YbAlB$$_4$$ shows quantum criticality without tuning and has a strong mixed-valence state. In this study, we measured the magnetization curve and X-ray magnetoabsorption in $$alpha$$-YbAl$$_{1-x}$$Fe$$_x$$B$$_4$$ ($$x=0.115$$), which is a locally isostructural polymorph of $$beta$$-YbAlB$$_4$$. The magnetization and X-ray experiments were performed in fields up to 55 and 40 T, respectively. A small increase in the Yb valence was observed at fields where the magnetization curve exhibited a change in slope.

Proceedings of Plasma Conference 2014 (PLASMA 2014) (CD-ROM), 2 Pages, 2014/11

In the IFMIF/EVEDA (International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility/ Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activity), the validation tests of the EVEDA lithium test loop with the world's highest flow rate of 3000 L/min was succeeded in generating a 100 mm-wide and 25 mm-thick free-surface lithium flow steadily under the IFMIF operation condition of a high-speed of 15 m/s at 250$$^{circ}$$C in a vacuum of 10 $$^{-3}$$ Pa. Some excellent results of the recent engineering validations including lithium purification, lithium safety, and remote handling technique were obtained, and the engineering design of lithium facility was also evaluated. These results will advance greatly the development of an accelerator-based neutron source to simulate the fusion reactor materials irradiation environment as an important key technology for the development of fusion reactor materials.

Simple and rapid methods to evaluate the radioactivity concentrations are required to be established for the near surface disposal of radioactive wastes generated from research facilities at Japan Atomic Energy Agency. In order to establish the methods to evaluate the radioactivity concentrations of miscellaneous solid wastes generated from research and testing reactors, we collected and analyzed samples from miscellaneous solid wastes generated by the decommissioning of JPDR (Japan Power Demonstration Reactor). In the present paper, we summarized data about the radioactivity concentrations which accumulated by the analysis.

Compensation of residual third-order dispersion in a fiber stretched, chirped-pulse amplification system using a grism pair

Ogawa, Kanade; Akahane, Yutaka; Tsuji, Koichi; Yamakawa, Koichi

Reza Kenkyu, 38(10), p.779 - 783, 2010/10

We have newly designed a grism pair compensator for third-order dispersion in a fiber stretched chirped-pulse amplification system. In a numerical calculation, we have obtained a pedestal-free re-compressed pulse close to the transform-limited pulse using the grism pair. We have experimentally demonstrated a two-fold enhancement of peak intensity and pulse shortening of the compressed pulse with this device.

We have proposed and demonstrated a very simple and robust femtosecond optical-parametric chirped-pulse amplification scheme in which an even order dispersion of an idler pulse is compensated by passing through an identical positive dispersive material used for temporal stretching a signal pulse. By compressing the idler pulses having a negatively chirp in this manner, high power sub-100 fs pulses were successfully obtained with only a transparent glass block used for the stretcher and compressor.

By compressing the idler pulses having a negatively chirp in this manner, high power sub-100 fs pulses were successfully obtained with only a transparent glass block used for the stretcher and compressor. A feasible design of real world femtosecond laser systems employing this scheme is also discussed.

Using a partially deuterated KDP crystal for an optical parametric amplifier, we demonstrated ultrabroadband optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification of more than 250 nm bandwidth at a center wavelength of 1050 nm. We numerically show how to control the broadband phase matching conditions at different wavelengths to match center wavelengths of suitable broadband seed sources by adjusting the deuteration level in partially deuterated KDP.

We review progress in the generation of ultrahigh-intensity optical pulses in a few-cycle regime. A design of a Generation of ENergetic Beam Ultimate (GENBU) laser based on optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification, which will be produced a peak power of up to 6-PW with a variable pulse durations ranging from 5-fs to 8-ps is described. Ultra-broadband optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification pumped by a picosecond laser pulse delivered from a diode-pumped, cryogenically-cooled Yb:YLF chirped-pulse amplification laser is also reported.

A diode-pumped, cryogenically-cooled Yb:LuLiF$$_{4}$$ regenerative amplifier has been developed for the first time to our knowledge. A chirped-seed pulse was amplified and compressed in the regenerative amplifier, simultaneously, which generated $$sim$$6-mJ, 13-ps pulses at 999 nm wavelength without a pulse compressor. Simultaneous lasing at 999 nm and 1024 nm, respectively, was demonstrated, which could be used for different frequency generation in the THz region.

Ytterbium (Yb$$^{3+}$$) doped gain media are one of promising laser materials for the next generation of diode-pumped high-power lasers. Yb-doped media have several advantages. It has wide absorption bandwidth, the low quantum defect, and the simple electronic structure. Yb:KY(WO$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ (Yb:KYW) and Yb:KG(WO$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ (Yb:KGW) have a large absorption and wide emission cross section, broad emission spectral range, and high thermal conductivity, yielding a high repetition-rate, high-energy, sub-picosecond pulses. However, multi-millijoule-class Yb:KYW or Yb:KGW lasers have not yet been reported so far, excepting a massive, joule-class Ti:sapphire laser pumped Yb:KGW regenerative amplifier. So, We developed a compact diode-pumped, cryogenically-cooled chirped-pulse Yb:KYW regenerative amplifier. An amplified pulse with an energy of 5.5 mJ and a high optical conversion efficiency of $$sim$$14% is achieved. Regenerative pulse shaping is also used to counter gain narrowing during amplification.

Degenerate optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier pumped by an Yb:YLF chirped-pulse amplification laser

Reza Kenkyu, 35(6), p.398 - 399, 2007/06

We have demonstrated optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification by using a diode-pumped Yb:YLF CPA laser system as a pump source and achieved an ultra-broadband amplification of over 200-nm supporting a 12.6-fs duration (3.7 optical cycles) in spite of being operated around degeneracy. By using a two-stage OPCPA with a higher-energy pump pulse, it should be able to produce a terawatt-class, few-cycle laser pulse without complexly and enlarging the system size. Such a laser is useful for the generation of attosecond pulse generation in the xuv region as well as other high field applications.
