$$^{14}$$Cは半減期が約5700年と極めて長いことが知られており、その性質は年代測定に利用されている。$$^{14}$$Cから$$^{14}$$Nへのベータ崩壊は、スピンパリティ差が$$1^+$$の許容遷移であるにも関わらず、$$log ft$$値が9を超え、遷移が極めて抑制されている。その核構造的起源を解き明かすため、$$^{14}$$Cを$$p$$殻の2空孔状態とした殻模型に基づいた議論を行った。非常に興味深いことに、2粒子状態の基底状態へのベータ崩壊行列要素は非常に大きく、2空孔状態の行列要素はゼロに近くなる。2粒子状態については、1番目の$$1^+$$へ強く遷移(LeSGTと呼ぶ)し、2番目の$$1^+$$へは弱く遷移(anti-LeSGTと呼ぶ)するが、2空孔状態についてはその逆で、1番目の$$1^+$$へは弱く、2番目の$$1^+$$へは強いという逆転関係があることがわかった。この粒子・空孔状態間の非対称性は、二体力の行列要素の符号によって理解されることがわかった。

$$N=Z$$核において、不活性コアを考慮した3体模型は原子核の基底状態の対相関やスピン-アイソスピン励起について一定の理解を与える。しかしながら、コアと核子の間に働く残留相互作用によって、コア核は有意に影響を受けることが知られている。したがって、より詳細に基底状態とスピン-アイソスピン励起を理解するためには、コアの励起を考慮する必要がある。この研究では、コアの振動励起を取り入れた3体問題を解くことによって、奇奇核の基底状態とスピン-アイソスピン励起の変化を調べた。コアの振動励起を取り入れることで、(a)磁気モーメント、(b)基底状態と励起状態のエネルギー差、(c)B(M1)とB(GT)、の値が改善することが分かった。また価陽子と価中性子間の平均二乗距離と価陽子と価中性子の重心とコアの平均二乗距離がわずかに大きくなることが分かった。

We report on a coordinated and systematic effort to compile and assess all the existing experimental data on photon strength functions extracted from photoabsorption cross sections in the region of the Giant Dipole Resonance and from neutron-, photon- and charged-particle-induced reactions at energies around or below the neutron separation energy. We also present global empirical and microscopic models that describe the photon strength function in the entire photon energy region and reproduce reasonably well most of the existing experimental data. Finally, we recommend photon strength functions for use in basic sciences and applications. The compilation of experimental photon strengths as well as the recommended model calculations are readily available to the user community from a dedicated database hosted at the IAEA.

Excited states of the rubidium isotopes $$^{87,89,91}$$Rb were studied at the INFN Legnaro National Laboratory. Measurements of the $$gamma$$-ray of nuclei produced in binary reactions from the interaction of a beam of 530 MeV $$^{96}$$Zr ions with a $$^{124}$$Sn target were complemented by studies of the $$gamma$$-rays from nuclei produced in the interaction of a beam of 230 MeV $$^{36}$$S ions with a thick $$^{176}$$Yb target. The structure of the yrast states of $$^{87, 89, 91}$$Rb is discussed within the context of spherical shell-model and cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations.

The neutron-deficient mercury isotopes serve as a classical example of shape coexistence, whereby at low energy near-degenerate nuclear states characterized by different shapes appear. The electromagnetic structure of even-mass $$^{182-188}$$Hg isotopes was studied using safe-energy Coulomb excitation of neutron-deficient mercury beams delivered by the REX-ISOLDE facility at CERN. The population of 0$$^{+}_{1,2}$$, 2$$^{+}_{1,2}$$, and 4$$^{+}_{1}$$ states was observed in all nuclei under study. Reduced $$E2$$ matrix elements coupling populated yrast and non-yrast states were extracted, including their relative signs. These are a sensitive probe of shape coexistence and may be used to validate nuclear models. The experimental results are discussed in terms of mixing of two different configurations and are compared with three different model calculations: the Beyond Mean Field model, the Interacting Boson Model with configuration mixing and the General Bohr Hamiltonian. Partial agreement with experiment was observed, hinting to missing ingredients in the theoretical descriptions.

核データを用いた原子核反応については、放射線照射を受けた材料のカスケード損傷による欠陥生成の起点となる。そのため、欠陥生成の指標となる一次はじき出し原子(PKA)、PKAの損傷エネルギー及び原子あたりのはじき出し数(DPA値)の導出において、原子核反応を正確に考慮することが重要となる。ここで、原子核反応を考慮した欠陥生成の評価手法(メトリクス)を用いることで、照射材料中の個々の欠陥やクラスタ化した欠陥のマクロな挙動をシミュレーションすることが可能となる。より具体的には、原子炉, 核融合, 加速器, 核医学, 宇宙分野等の様々な分野において、照射条件(入射粒子, 入射エネルギー, 材料等)に対応した損傷評価が可能となる。本論文は、核反応及び損傷エネルギーに関する最近の理論と進展をレビューするとともに、欠陥生成量を導出する際の核データにおける誤差の伝播、分子動力学に基づいた損傷計算等について述べる。

ENDF/B-VIIIなど多くの評価済データライブラリで$$^{71}$$Gaの熱中性子捕獲断面積を4.7b前後と評価している一方、JENDL-4.0では約20%低い値の3.71bと評価している。これらの断面積データの多くは、絶対値を決定するモニター箔を用いた放射化測定で得られたものであるが、古い年代のものが多く、結果は採用されるモニター箔に依存している可能性がある。そこで、$$^{71}$$Gaの熱中性子捕獲断面積を複数のモニター箔を用いて再測定した。本実験では、コンクリートで減速したAm-Be線源からの中性子を、$$^{71}$$Ga箔と$$^{197}$$Au及び$$^{55}$$Mnのモニター箔を組み合わせた試料に照射し、放射化した箔から放出される$$gamma$$線をゲルマニウム検出器で測定した。ここで、試料中の中性子の自己遮蔽効果を粒子・重イオン輸送計算コードPHITSを用いて計算したところ、0.1%以下と寄与が小さいことが分かった。この結果も参照して、AuとMnの測定結果から共分散行列の非対角化成分を導出し、これを用いて$$^{71}$$Gaの熱中性子断面積の重みつき平均とその不確かさを導出した。その結果、$$^{71}$$Gaの熱中性子断面積として4.05$$pm$$0.27bとなり、JENDL-4.0の値3.71bに近い値を得た。

The results for nuclei above curium, produced in multi-nucleon transfer reactions of $$^{48}$$Ca+$$^{248}$$Cm at the velocity filter SHIP of GSI Darmstadt, are presented. Spontaneous fission and $$alpha$$ activities have been used to study the population of nuclei with lifetimes ranging from few milliseconds to several days. We observed several, relatively neutron-rich isotopes with atomic numbers Z $$ge$$ 98; among them a weak 224 millisecond activity which we tentatively attributed to $$^{260}$$No. The measured cross-sections of the observed nuclei give hope that multi-nucleon transfer reactions are a way to reach new neutron-rich heavy and superheavy nuclei, which are not accessible in other reactions. We compare our results with data from earlier experiments and discuss limitations and future perspectives of the method.

Neutron capture cross section measurements on $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd were performed using the time-of-flight technique at the n_TOF facility at CERN on isotopically enriched samples. The measurements were carried out in the n TOF experimental area EAR1, at 185m from the neutron source, with an array of 4 C$$_6$$D$$_6$$ liquid scintillation detectors. At a neutron kinetic energy of 0.0253eV, capture cross sections of 62.2(2.2) and 239.8(8.4) kilobarn have been derived for $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd, respectively, with up to 6% deviation relative to values presently reported in nuclear data libraries, but consistent with those values within 1.6 standard deviations. A resonance shape analysis has been performed in the resolved resonance region up to 181eV and 307eV, respectively for $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd, where on average, resonance parameters have been found in good agreement with evaluations. Above these energies and up to 1keV, the observed resonance-like structure of the cross section has been analysed and characterised. From a statistical analysis of the observed neutron resonances we deduced: neutron strength function of 2.01(28) $$times$$ 10$$^{-4}$$ and 2.17(41) $$times$$ 10$$^{-4}$$; average total radiative width of 106.8(14)meV and 101.1(20)meV and s-wave resonance spacing 1.6(2)eV and 4.8(5)eV for n + $$^{155}$$Gd and n + $$^{157}$$Gd systems, respectively.

We report evidence for the charged charmed-strange baryon $$Xi_{c}(2930)^+$$ with a signal significance of 3.9$$sigma$$ with systematic errors included. The charged $$Xi_{c}(2930)^+$$ is found in its decay to $$K_{S}^{0} Lambda_{c}^+$$ in the substructure of $$bar{B}^{0} to K^{0}_{S} Lambda_{c}^{+} bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}$$ decays. The measured mass and width are $$[2942.3 pm 4.4 (rm stat.) pm 1.5(rm syst.)]$$~MeV/$$c^{2}$$ and $$[14.8 pm 8.8(rm stat.) pm 2.5(rm syst.)]$$~MeV, respectively, and the product branching fraction is $${cal B}(bar{B}^{0} to Xi_c(2930)^{+} bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-})$$ $${cal B}(Xi_c(2930)^{+}to bar{K}^{0} Lambda_{c}^{+})=[2.37 pm 0.51 (rm stat.)pm 0.31(rm syst.)]times 10^{-4}$$. We also measure $${cal B}(bar{B}^{0} to bar{K}^{0} Lambda_{c}^{+} bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}) = [3.99 pm 0.76(rm stat.) pm 0.51(rm syst.)] times 10^{-4}$$ with greater precision than previous experiments, and present the results of a search for the charmonium-like state $$Y(4660)$$ and its spin partner, $$Y_{eta}$$, in the $$Lambda_{c}^{+}bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}$$ invariant mass spectrum. No clear signals of the $$Y(4660)$$ or $$Y_{eta}$$ are observed and the 90% credibility level (C.L.) upper limits on their production rates are determined. These measurements are obtained from a sample of $$(772pm11)times 10^{6} Bbar{B}$$ pairs collected at the $$Upsilon(4S)$$ resonance by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric energy electron-positron collider.

Sensitivity and uncertainty analysis of $$beta_{rm eff}$$ for MYRRHA using a Monte Carlo technique

European Physical Journal; Nuclear Sciences & Technologies (Internet), 4, p.42_1 - 42_7, 2018/11

実効遅発中性子割合$$beta_{rm eff}$$は、原子炉の核設計において最も重要な安全パラメータの一つであり、その値は核データに起因する不確かさを含めて評価することが求められている。本研究では、モンテカルロ粒子輸送計算コードMCNPを用いて、鉛ビスマス冷却核変換研究炉MYRRHA臨界炉心及び未臨界炉心の$$beta_{rm eff}$$に対する感度解析及び不確かさ解析を実施した。感度解析では、千葉により提案された「修正中性子増倍率比法」を用いて$$beta_{rm eff}$$の感度係数を求めた。$$beta_{rm eff}$$の感度係数に対する本手法で導入されたスケーリング因子の依存性を統計的不確かさ低減の観点から調査した結果、感度解析および不確かさ解析に対するスケーリング因子の最適な値は$$20$$であることがわかった。このスケーリング因子を用いて求めた$$beta_{rm eff}$$の感度係数及びJENDL-4.0を一部修正したJENDL-4.0uの共分散データを用いて、MYRRHA臨界炉心及び未臨界炉心の核データに起因する不確かさを求めた。それらの値はそれぞれ2.2$$pm$$0.2%および2.0$$pm$$0.2%と評価され、その大部分は$$^{239}$$Pu及び$$^{238}$$Uの遅発中性子収率に起因することがわかった。

We study bottomonium production in association with an $$eta$$ meson in $$e^+e^-$$ annihilations near the $$Upsilon(5S)$$, at a center of mass energy of $$sqrt{s}=10.866,$$GeV. The results are based on the $$121.4,$$fb$$^{-1}$$ data sample collected by the Belle experiment at the asymmetric energy KEKB collider. Only the $$eta$$ meson is reconstructed and the missing-mass spectrum of $$eta$$ candidates is investigated. We observe the $$e^+e^-toetaUpsilon_J(1D)$$ process and find evidence for the $$e^+e^-toetaUpsilon(2S)$$ process, while no significant signals of $$Upsilon(1S)$$, $$h_b(1P)$$, nor $$h_b(2P)$$ are found. Cross sections for the studied processes are reported.

We report the first observation of the $$Xi_{c}(2930)^0$$ charmed-strange baryon with a significance greater than 5$$sigma$$. The $$Xi_{c}(2930)^0$$ is found in its decay to $$K^- Lambda_{c}^+$$ in $$B^{-} to K^{-} Lambda_{c}^{+} bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}$$ decays. The measured mass and width are $$[2928.9 pm 3.0(rm stat.)^{+0.9}_{-12.0}(rm syst.)]$$ MeV/$$c^{2}$$ and $$[19.5 pm 8.4(rm stat.) ^{+5.9}_{-7.9}(rm syst.)]$$ MeV, respectively, and the product branching fraction is $${cal B}(B^{-} to Xi_{c}(2930)^0 bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-})$$$$ {cal B}(Xi_{c}(2930)^0 to K^- Lambda_{c}^{+})$$=$$[1.73 pm 0.45(rm stat.) pm 0.21(rm syst.)] times 10^{-4}$$. We also measure $${cal B}(B^{-} to K^{-} Lambda_{c}^{+} bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}) = [4.80 pm 0.43(rm stat.) pm 0.60(rm syst.)] times 10^{-4}$$ with improved precision, and search for the charmonium-like state $$Y(4660)$$ and its spin partner, $$Y_{eta}$$, in the $$Lambda_{c}^{+}bar{Lambda}_{c}^{-}$$ invariant mass spectrum. No clear signals of the $$Y(4660)$$ nor its spin partner are observed and the 90% credibility level (C.L.) upper limits on their production rates are determined. These measurements are obtained from a sample of $$(772pm11)times 10^{6} Bbar{B}$$ pairs collected at the $$Upsilon(4S)$$ resonance by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric energy electron-positron collider.

Beta-delayed proton emission from $$^{20}$$Mg has been measured at ISOLDE, CERN, with the ISOLDE Decay Station setup including both charged-particle and $$gamma$$-ray detection capabilities. A total of 27 delayed proton branches were measured including seven so far unobserved. An updated decay scheme, including three new resonances above the proton separation energy in $$^{20}$$Na and more precise resonance energies, is presented. Beta-decay feeding to two resonances above the Isobaric Analogue State in $$^{20}$$Na is observed. This may allow studies of the 4032.9(2.4) keV resonance in $$^{19}$$Ne through the beta decay of $$^{20}$$Mg, which is important for the astrophysically relevant reaction $$^{15}$$O($$alpha$$,$$gamma$$)$$^{19}$$Ne. Beta-delayed protons were used to obtain a more precise value for the half-life of $$^{20}$$Mg, 91.4(1.0) ms.

Nuclear data in general, and neutron-induced reaction cross sections in particular, are important for a wide variety of research fields. They play a key role in the safety and criticality assessment of nuclear technology, not only for existing power reactors but also for radiation dosimetry, medical applications, the transmutation of nuclear waste, accelerator-driven systems, fuel cycle investigations and future reactor systems as in Generation IV. Applications of nuclear data are also related to research fields as the study of nuclear level densities and stellar nucleosynthesis. Simulations and calculations of nuclear technology applications largely rely on evaluated nuclear data libraries. The evaluations in these libraries are based both on experimental data and theoretical models. CERN's neutron time-of-flight facility, n_TOF, has produced a considerable amount of experimental data since it has become fully operational with the start of the scientific measurement program in 2001. While for a long period a single measurement station (EAR1) located at 185 m from the neutron production target was available, the construction of a second beam line at 20 m (EAR2) in 2014 has substantially increased the measurement capabilities of the facility. An outline of the experimental nuclear data activities at n_TOF will be presented.

The reaction $$^{54}$$Cr+$$^{248}$$Cm was investigated at the velocity filter SHIP at GSI with the intention to study production and decay properties of isotopes of element 120. Three correlated signals were measured, which occurred within a period of 279 ms. The heights of the signals correspond with the expectations for a decay sequence starting with an isotope of element 120. However, a complete decay chain cannot be established, since a signal from the implantation of the evaporation residue cannot be identified unambiguously. Measured properties of the event chain are discussed in detail. The result is compared with theoretical predictions. Previously measured decay properties of even element super-heavy nuclei were compiled in order to find arguments for an assignment from the systematics of experimental data. In the course of this review, a few tentatively assigned data could be corrected. New interpretations are given for results which could not be assigned definitely in previous studies. The discussion revealed that the cross-section for production of element 120 could be high enough so that a successful experiment seems possible with presently available techniques. However, a continuation of the experiment at SHIP for a necessary confirmation of the results obtained in a relatively short irradiation of five weeks is not possible at GSI presently. In the summary and outlook section we also present concepts for the continuation of research in the field of super-heavy nuclei.

Shell-correction energies of super-heavy nuclei are approximated by using Q$$_{alpha}$$ values of measured decay chains. Five decay chains were analyzed, which start at the isotopes $$^{285}$$Fl, $$^{294}$$118, $$^{291}$$Lv, $$^{292}$$Lv and $$^{293}$$Lv. The data are compared with predictions of macroscopic-microscopic models. Fission barriers are estimated that can be used to eliminate uncertainties in partial fission half-lives and in calculations of evaporation-residue cross-sections. In that calculations, fission probability of the compound nucleus is a major factor contributing to the total cross-section. The data also provide constraints on the cross-sections of capture and quasi-fission in the entrance channel of the fusion reaction. Arguments are presented that fusion reactions for synthesis of isotopes of elements 118 and 120 may have higher cross-sections than assumed so far.

In order to improve the data accuracy of neutron-capture cross sections of minor actinides (MAs) and long-lived fission products (LLFPs), a new experimental instrument named "Accurate Neutron-Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI)" has been constructed in the Materials and Life science experimental Facility (MLF) at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), and measurements of neutron-capture cross sections of MAs, LLFPs and some stable isotopes with high intensity pulsed neutrons have been started. The analyses for $$^{244}$$Cm, $$^{246}$$Cm, $$^{241}$$Am and $$^{237}$$Np were finished; those for $$^{129}$$I, $$^{107}$$Pd, $$^{99}$$Tc, $$^{93}$$Zr and some stable isotopes are in progress. These results will make significant contributions in the field of developing innovative nuclear systems.
