Excitation functions of quasielastic scattering cross sections for the $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{208}$$Pb, $$^{50}$$Ti + $$^{208}$$Pb, and $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{248}$$Cm reactions were successfully measured by using the gas-filled recoil-ion separator GARIS. Fusion barrier distributions were extracted from these data, and compared with the coupled-channels calculations. It was found that the peak energies of the barrier distributions for the $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{208}$$Pb and $$^{50}$$Ti + $$^{208}$$Pb systems coincide with those of the 2n evaporation channel cross sections for the systems, while that of the $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{248}$$Cm is located slightly below the 4n evaporation ones. This results provide us helpful information to predict the optimum beam energy to synthesize superheavy nuclei.

In Japan, high-level radioactive waste (HLW) will be emplaced in a stable host rock formation deeper than 300 meters underground for geological disposal. It is important to understand heterogeneous distribution of hydraulic conductivity from the viewpoints of the safety assessment of geological disposal of HLW and construction of underground facilities. Inverse analysis based on the transient data is an efficient technique for estimating the heterogeneous distribution. In this study, numerical experiments with the adjoint state method and the ensemble Kalman filter were carried out in order to understand effective method for application of these inverse analysis. As a result of this study, the capability of each analysis techniques was shown.

Proceedings of 8th Japan-Korea Symposium on Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics and Safety (NTHAS-8) (USB Flash Drive), 10 Pages, 2012/12

A hydrogen combustion experiment was conducted to simulate the sodium-concrete reaction under oxygen-existing conditions. As a result, it was found that hydrogen was burnt at the sodium pool surface because as sodium combustion heat played a role of the ignition energy, and the hydrogen combination ratio increased with the increase of the oxygen concentration in the atmosphere.

Design and fabrication of novel photonic crystal waveguide consisting of Si-ion implanted SiO$$_{2}$$ layers

Umenyi, A. V.*; Hommi, Masashi*; Kawashiri, Shinya*; Shinagawa, Teruyoshi*; Miura, Kenta*; Hanaizumi, Osamu*; Yamamoto, Shunya; Inoue, Aichi; Yoshikawa, Masahito

Key Engineering Materials, 459, p.168 - 172, 2011/04

A new type of two-dimensional photonic crystal (2-D PhC) waveguide was designed using finite difference time domain method to operate at a wavelength of 1.55 $$mu$$m applicable to optical fiber-communication systems. We estimated that a triangular-lattice 2-D PhC structure formed by air holes with a diameter of 465 nm and a period of 664 nm suit our purpose. To form a core of the waveguide, Si ions were implanted into a SiO$$_{2}$$ layer by using a 400-kV ion implanter. The implantation energy was 80 keV and the implantation amount was 1$$times$$10$$^{17}$$ ions/cm$$^{2}$$. The electron beam resist was spin-coated on a substrate and the designed pattern was written lithographically in the resist using Electron Beam. Atomic force microscope measurements revealed that the diameter and the period of air holes of the waveguide were 466 and 666 nm. These values were nearly equal to the designed ones. We thus succeeded in fabricating 2-D PhC waveguides in a Si-ion-implanted SiO$$_{2}$$ layer.

Yamamoto, Shinya*; Honda, Makoto*; Sakurai, Hideyuki*; Suzuki, Makoto*; Sanada, Hiroyuki; Sugita, Yutaka; Matsui, Hiroya

Proceedings of 14th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG 2010) (CD-ROM), 12 Pages, 2010/09

The distribution of groundwater properties is important for understanding of the deep underground hydrogeological environments in the design of the HLW disposal facilities. This study proposes a geostatistical system for modeling the chemical properties of groundwater which have a correlation with the resistivity data obtained from widespread and exhaustive survey. The proposed system is consists of two methodologies (resistivity data integration using Simple Kriging with varying local mean (SKlm) and 3D distribution modeling of hydro-chemical properties of groundwater estimated by SKlm algorithm). 2 types of uncertainty are considered: (1) Aleatory uncertainty; (2) Epistemic uncertainty. As a result, the uncertainties of the proposal model have been estimated lower than other traditional model's.

This paper proposes a geostatistical system for modeling the groundwater properties which have a correlation with the ground resistivity data obtained from widespread and exhaustive electromagnetic survey. That is, the methodology for the integration of resistivity data measured by various methods and the methodology for modeling the groundwater properties using the integrated resistivity data has been developed. The proposed system has also been validated using the data obtained in the surface-based investigations of the Horonobe URL project. Additionally, the quantification of uncertainties in the estimated model has been tried by numerical simulations based on the data. As a result, the uncertainties of the proposal model have been estimated lower than other traditional model's.

Effect of neptunium ions on corrosion of ultra low carbon type 304 stainless steel in nitric acid solution

Kato, Chiaki; Motooka, Takafumi; Numata, Masami; Endo, Shinya; Yamamoto, Masahiro

Structural Materials for Innovative Nuclear Systems (SMINS), p.439 - 447, 2008/07

Corrosion of a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant is also important problem in either current or an advanced nuclear fuel reprocessing system. In this process, nitric acid solution is used to dissolve spent nuclear fuels and solvent extraction method is used to separate U, Pu and actinoid elements. It will be much severer corrosive environment. In this paper, an effect of neptunium ions on corrosion of ultra low carbon Type 304 stainless steel was investigated. The corrosion tests were conducted in 9 kmol/m$$^{3}$$ nitric acid solution adding neptunium ions. The results show that neptunium ions promote inter-grainier corrosion of SUS304ULC in nitric acid solution and corrosion rate in heat-transfer condition is larger than that in immersed condition. It is estimated that the oxidise potential of nitric ions increases under heat-transfer condition more than immersion condition in boiling solution. Furthermore, the effect of $$gamma$$-ray irradiation used $$^{60}$$Co is examined. $$gamma$$-ray irradiation decreases corrosion rates and the reason is discussed.

Miyahara, Shinya; Ohno, Shuji; Yamamoto, Nobuhiro; Saito, Junichi; Hirabayashi, Masaru

Proceedings of 14th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE-14) (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2006/07

The experimental study has been carried out to investigate reaction, transport and settling behavior of lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) in flowing liquid sodium. In the test, 168 g of LBE were poured into flowing sodium from the top of a vertical-type sodium loop which contained 23.2 kg of sodium. The initial temperature of LBE and sodium was 673 K. The flow rate and the maximum velocity of sodium in the loop were controlled and measured at 20 dm$$^{3}$$/min and 1 m/sec, respectively, using an electro-magnetic pump and an electro-magnetic flow meter. The sodium loop has a settling chamber at the lower part to investigate the concentration decrease behavior of solid particle reaction products in the sodium due to the settling effect. The concentration was measured by sodium sampling from the 11 positions of the loop during the experiment and its post-test chemical analysis. The temperature changes at the various parts of the loop were also measured during the experiment by thermo-couples attached on the outer surface of the loop. Ultrasonic detectors were attached on the outer surface of the loop below the position of a LBE pour nozzle to demonstrate the utility as a leak detector.
