ナトリウム燃焼における多次元効果の検証のために、原子力機構においてSNL T3ナトリウム燃焼試験をAQUA-SFおよびSPHINCSコードを用いて検証を行った。解析において、試験中の燃焼停止期間を模擬し、ナトリウム液滴径の最適化を行うことで、試験結果の再現を行った。その際、AQUA-SFにおけるBest estimateの液滴径は2.5mmとなり、ハイスピードカメラによる測定と矛盾しない結果を得ることができた。

Unacceptably high uranium concentrations in decentralized and remote potable groundwater resources, especially those of high hardness, are a common worldwide problem. The complexation of alkali earth metals, carbonate and uranium(VI) results in the formation of thermodynamically stable ternary aqueous species that are predominantly neutrally-charged. The removal of the uncharged (non-adsorbing) complexes is a problematic issue for many water treatment technologies. As such, we have evaluated the efficacy of a recently-developed electrochemical technology, termed flow-electrode capacitive deionization (FCDI), to treat a synthetic groundwater, the composition of which is comparable to groundwater resources in the Northern Territory, Australia. Theoretical calculations and time-resolved laser fluorescence spectroscopy analyses confirmed that the complex was the primary aqueous species followed. Results under different operating conditions demonstrated that FCDI is versatile in reducing uranium concentrations to $$<$$ 10 $$mu$$g L$$^{-1}$$ with low electrical consumption (e.g. $$sim$$ 0.1 kWh m$$^{-3}$$). It is concluded that the capability of FCDI to remove uranium under these common conditions depends on the dissociation kinetics of the complex in the electrical field.

We report on incoherent quasielastic neutron scattering measurements examining a self-diffusion process in two types of glass-forming liquids, namely a molecular liquid (3-methylpentane) and an ionic liquid (1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide). We have experimentally demonstrated that both liquids exhibit two crossovers in the momentum transfer ($$Q$$) dependence of the self-correlation function, which is basically described by the stretched exponential function, $$exp [-(t/tau)^beta]$$. The first crossover point ($$Q approx 0.2$$~$AA$^{-1}$$) corresponds to a crossover from Fickian ($$beta = 1$$) to non-Fckian ($$beta ne 1$$) diffusion attributed to dynamical correlation. On the other hand, the second one at $$Q approx 0.8$$~$AA$^{-1}$$ is associated with the crossover from Gaussian to non-Gaussian behavior. It is remarkable that the stretching exponent $$beta$$ gradually changes in between the two crossover points. We consider that the two crossovers are the universal feature for glass-forming liquids.

A new high-spin isomer in the neutron-rich nucleus $$^{128}$$Cd was populated in the projectile fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam at the Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory at RIKEN. A half-life of T$$_{1/2}$$ = 6.3(8) ms was measured for the new state which was tentatively assigned a spin/parity of (15$$^-$$). The isomeric state decays via the emission of a 309-keV $$gamma$$ ray with $$E3$$ multipolarity. The experimental results are compared to shell model calculations performed using state-of-the-art realistic effective interactions and to the neighbouring nucleus $$^{129}$$Cd. The comparison with calculations shows that adjustments of the pairing and multipole parts of the effective interaction derived from the CD-Bonn nucleon-nucleon potential are required in order to describe the properties of nuclei in the region around $$^{132}$$Sn.

The level schemes of neutron-rich isotopes $$^{70}$$Co and $$^{70}$$Ni were populated in the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{70}$$Fe and studied using $$beta$$-delayed $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy of the $$beta$$ decay, at the RIBF in RIKEN, Japan. The experimental results were compared to state-of-the-art shell-model calculations, and indicate a dominance of prolate deformation in the low-lying states, coexisting with spherical states. The $$beta$$ decay of the $$A=70$$ isobars is shown to progress in accordance to a new type of shell evolution, the so-called Type II, which involves many particle-hole excitations across energy gaps.

The $$beta$$ decay of the semi-magic nucleus $$^{130}$$Cd has been studied at the RIBF facility at the RIKEN Nishina Center. The high statistics of the present experiment allowed for a revision of the established level scheme of $$^{130}$$In and the observation of additional $$beta$$ feeding to high lying core-excited states in $$^{130}$$In. The experimental results are compared to shell-model calculations employing a model space consisting of the full major $$N=50-82$$ neutron and $$Z=28-50$$ proton shells, and good agreement is found.


First observation of $$gamma$$ rays emitted from excited states south-east of $$^{132}$$Sn; The $$pi$$ g$$_{9/2}^{-1}$$ $$ otimes$$ $$nu f_{7/2}$$ multiplet of $$^{132}$$In$$_{83}$$

For the first time, the decay of excited states in a nucleus situated "south-east" of $$^{132}$$Sn have been observed, in a region where experimental information is limited to ground-state properties. Six $$gamma$$ rays from $$^{133}$$Cd, produced in the fragmentation of a $$^{238}$$U beam at RIBF at RIKEN. The $$gamma$$ rays were studied using the EURICA array of Ge detectors. The new experimental information is compared to results from realistic shell-model calculations, which are the first in this region far from stability. Comparison with calculations suggests that at least four out of six new transitions can be attributed to the particle-hole configuration of one neutron in the $$f_{7/2}$$ and one proton hole in the $$g_{9/2}$$ orbits, respectively. This work constitutes an important first step towards the exploration of nuclear structure in this unknown region of the nuclear chart.

Low-lying excited states in $$^{72}$$Ni have been investigated at RIKEN by studying the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{72}$$Co to $$^{72}$$Ni. $$^{72}$$Co was separated with BigRIPS, implanted into the WaS3ABi Silicon array, and the $$gamma$$ ray measured using the EURICA $$gamma$$ spectrometer. From the analysis, 60 new $$gamma$$-ray transitions and 21 new levels in $$^{72}$$Ni were observed. The new experimental information is compared to shell-model calculations which include neutron excitation across the $$fpg$$ shell. The calculations reproduce rather well the observed states, implying that a clear understanding of these low-lying excitations has been achieved.

本論文は、ウラン鉱山の処理水試料から単離された、好酸性/耐酸性菌の菌株によるウランの吸着や結合挙動を研究したものである。菌株の生存率は、溶液からウランを除去する容量に決定的に依存することがわかった。実際に、2時間の反応で、生きた菌は乾燥重量で16mg U/gのウランを除去し、死滅した菌は45mg U/gを除去した。さらに10分間の酸による洗浄でウランの20$$sim$$50%は溶出・除去された。X線吸収分光の結果はウランの結合は細胞の生存率に大きく依存しており、生きた細胞では、炭素やリン原子との距離は同様であったが、秩序だったウランの結合環境が見られた。レーザー分光と組み合わせることで、菌細胞死によって放出されたと考えられる有機酸およびリン酸塩, 多糖類は、この系において最初のウランの結合を決定づけることがわかった。この結果は、フロントエンドにおける湿式精錬法においてウランの金属イオン封鎖作用を理解する重要な進展である。

The $$beta$$ decay of $$^{129}$$Cd, produced in relativistic fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam, was studied at the RIKEN Nishina Center. From the $$gamma$$-ray analysis, 31 excited states and 69 $$gamma$$ ray transitions were established in the level scheme of $$^{129}$$In, and compared with state-of-the-art shell-model calculations. It was found that the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{129}$$Cd is dominated by Gamow teller transitions, but a non-negligible contribution to the $$beta$$ decay is also made by first-forbidden transitions. To estimate the contribution of first-forbidden transitions is important for calculations of the $$beta$$-decay half-lives of nuclei in this region.


$$beta$$-decay half-lives of 110 neutron-rich nuclei across the $$N$$=82 shell gap; Implications for the mechanism and universality of the astrophysical $$r$$ process

The $$beta$$-decay half-lives of 110 neutron-rich isotopes of the elements from Rb to Sn were measured at the RIBF Facility at RIKEN, Japan. The new data demonstrate the persistence of shell structure far from stability and have direct implications for the $$r$$-process calculations. In particular, the new half-lives have a global impact on the calculated $$r$$-process elemental abundances, and alleviate the underproduction of isotopes just above and below the A=130 peak, which in the past required the introduction of shell structure modifications. Reaction-network calculations based on the new data reinforce the notion that the r-process abundance pattern may result from the freeze-out of a (n,$$gamma$$)$$_leftarrow^{rightarrow}$$($$gamma$$,n) equilibrium.


Alfv$'{e}$n acoustic channel for ion energy in high-beta tokamak plasmas revisited with a linear gyrokinetic model (LIGKA)

Bierwage, A.; Lauber, P.*; 相羽 信行; 篠原 孝司; 矢木 雅敏

Proceedings of 14th IAEA Technical Meeting on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems (Internet), 8 Pages, 2015/00

A recently proposed Alfv$'{e}$n acoustic self-heating channel for burning plasmas - where fast-ion-driven shear Alfv$'{e}$n waves transfer energy to sound waves which then heat the bulk ions - is reexamined using a linear gyrokinetic model. A local eigenvalue analysis shows that the ion sound branches required for such a self-heating channel are so strongly damped that they are effectively non-existent when $$T_{rm e} approx 1.7times T_{rm i}$$. However, when $$T_{rm e}$$ is increased by a factor 2.8, low-frequency sound continua in the range of beta-induced Alfv$'{e}$n acoustic eigenmodes (BAAE) are recovered and their excitation becomes feasible. This raises the question whether higher-frequency sound branches in the frequency range of beta-induced Alfv$'{e}$n continuum modes (BACM) and the associated self-heating channels may exist under reactor-relevant conditions. Moreover, it is shown that modifications of the continuous spectra by fast ions may need to be taken into account.

The decay of an isomeric state in the neutron-rich nucleus $$^{129}$$Cd was observed via the detection of internal conversion and Compton electrons. This measurement provided the first experimental information on excited states in this nucleus. The isomer was populated in the projectile fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam at the RIBF facility at RIKEN. From the measured yields of $$gamma$$ rays and internal conversion electrons, E3 multipolarity was tentatively assigned to the isomeric transition. A half-life of 3.6(2) ms was determined for this new state which, by comparison with shell-model calculations, was tentatively assigned a spin of (21/2$$^+$$).


Multi-time-scale energetic particle dynamics in JT-60U simulated with MHD activity, sources and collisions

Bierwage, A.; 篠原 孝司; 藤堂 泰*; 矢木 雅敏

Proceedings of 25th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference (FEC 2014) (CD-ROM), 8 Pages, 2014/10

The global nonlinear hybrid code MEGA was extended with a fast ion source and a collision model, so that the formation of the fast ion slowing-down distribution (long time scale, 1ms-1s) and the interaction between the fast ions and MHD waves (short time scale, 0.001-1ms) can be simulated simultaneously. This self-consistent approach, without artificial interfaces, allows to simulate meso-time-scale dynamics (0.1-10ms), such as recurring bursts of MHD activity and the resulting relaxations of the fast ion distribution. When applied to a JT-60U plasma driven by 400 keV negative-ion-based neutral beams (N-NB), the code successfully reproduced experimentally observed bursts of chirping modes. Thus validated, the new multi-time-scale simulations allows for the first time to study the physics of burstiness and frequency chirping in a realistic setting, and first results are presented and discussed. The advances made constitute an important step towards predictive simulations.

Delayed $$gamma$$-ray cascades, originating from the decay of 6$$^+$$ isomeric states, in the very neutron-rich, semimagic isotopes $$^{136,138}$$Sn were observed following the projectile fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam at RIBF, RIKEN. The wave functions of these isomeric states are proposed to be predominantly a fully aligned pair of f$$_{7/2}$$ neutrons. Shell-model calculations, performed using a realistic effective interaction, reproduce well the energies of the excited states of these nuclei and the measured transition rates, with the exception of the $$B(E$$2;6$$^+ rightarrow 4^+$$) rate of $$^{136}$$Sn, which deviates from a simple seniority scheme. Empirically reducing the $$nu f$$$$_{7/2}^{2}$$ orbit matrix elements produces a 4+1 state with almost equal seniority 2 and 4 components, correctly reproducing the experimental $$B(E$$2;6$$^+ rightarrow 4^+$$) rate of $$^{136}$$Sn. These data provide a key benchmark for shell-model interactions far from stability.
