The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS), operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc., experienced a meltdown as a result of a large tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. At that time, it was necessary to understand the aspects of the decommissioning working environment inside the FDNPS, such as establishing how the radioactive substances were distributed across the site, for work to be done efficiently without exposure to large amounts of radiation. Therefore, virtual reality (VR) emerged as a solution. There have been previous reports done on a technique for visualizing the distribution of radioactive substances in three dimensions utilizing a freely moving gamma-ray imager combined with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology. In this paper, we introduce imaging technologies for the acquisition of image data from radioactive substances and three-dimensional (3D) structural models of the working environment, using a freely moving gamma-ray imager combined with SLAM technology. For this research, we also constructed a VR system and displayed the 3D data in a VR space, which enables users to experience the actual working environment without radiation exposure. In creating the VR system, any user can implement this method by donning an inexpensive head-mounted display apparatus and using a free, or low-cost, application software.

We are developing a neutron polarizer with polarized $$^3$$He gas, referred to as a $$^3$$He spin filter, based on the Spin Exchange Optical Pumping (SEOP) for polarized neutron scattering experiments at Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). A $$^3$$He gas-filling station was constructed at J-PARC, and several $$^3$$He cells with long spin relaxation times have been fabricated using the gas-filling station. A laboratory has been prepared in the MLF beam hall for polarizing $$^3$$He cells, and compact pumping systems with laser powers of 30 W and 110 W, which can be installed onto a neutron beamline, have been developed. A $$^3$$He polarization of 85% was achieved at a neutron beamline by using the pumping system with the 110 W laser. Recently, the first user experiment utilizing the $$^3$$He spin filter was conducted, and there have been several more since then. The development and utilization of $$^3$$He spin filters at MLF of J-PARC are reported.

Our work focused on the passive gamma-ray analysis (PGA) of the nuclear fuel debris based on measuring gamma rays with an energy greater than 1 MeV for the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS). The PGA requires gamma-ray spectrometers to be used under the high dose rates in the FDNPS, then we fabricated a small cubic CeBr$$_{3}$$ spectrometer with dimensions of 5 mm $$times$$ 5 mm $$times$$ 5 mm, coupled to a Hamamatsu R7600U-200 photomultiplier tube (PMT). The performance at dose rates of 4.4 to 750 mSv/h in a $$^{60}$$Co field was investigated. The energy resolution (FWHM) at 1333 keV ranged from 3.79% to 4.01%, with a standard deviation of 6.9%, which met the narrow gamma decay spectral lines between $$^{154}$$Eu (1274 keV) and $$^{60}$$Co (1333 keV). However, the spectra shifted to a higher energy level as the dose rate increase, there was a 51% increase at the dose rates of 4.4 to 750 mSv/h, which was caused by the PMT gain increase.

Used PUREX process solvent generated from reprocessing process of spent nuclear fuel contains a small amount of U and Pu complexed with tributyl phosphate (TBP) or dibutyl phosphate (DBP). The radioactive nuclides should be removed from the solvent for safety storage or disposal. The iminodiacetic acid (IDA) type chelating resin was proposed as promising procedures for efficient recovery of the trapped cations in the solvent. In order to reveal the distribution and amount of Zr in the particle and local structure of Zr complex formed in the adsorbent, PIXE and EXAFS analyses on the Zr adsorbed chelating resin were carried out. Micro-PIXE analysis proved that it is an effectual method for quantitative analysis of trace adsorbed elements. Moreover, some of the adsorption sites were possibly occupied by the molecules. On the other hand, Zr-K edge EXAFS analysis suggested that extraction mechanism of Zr from the aqueous solution and the solvent was different.

これまでに、福島第一原子力発電所(FDNPS)の原子炉建屋でアルファおよび高$$beta$$粒子エミッターが検出された。FDNPS原子炉建屋の$$beta$$放射線レベルは非常に高いため、ガイガーミュラー(GM)カウンターなどの市販のベータ測量計では、$$beta$$汚染レベルを測定できない。この問題を解決するために、極薄のプラスチックシンチレータを使用して、アルファおよびベータ汚染の検出器を開発した。検出器の評価のため、7, 22, 24, 31, 39、および55$$mu$$mのさまざまな厚さの超薄型プラスチックシンチレータを準備した。それらの感度をテストするために、各シンチレータをガラスプレートと2インチの位置に敏感な光電子増倍管に光学的に結合し、アルファ, ベータ、またはガンマ線源に曝露した。アルファ分光法の結果は、厚さ55$$mu$$mのプラスチックシンチレータのみがアルファ粒子(5.5MeV)を完全に吸収し、半値全幅が16.7%であった。高ベータバックグラウンド下でのアルファイメージングの場合、厚さ7$$mu$$mのプラスチックシンチレータが最良の選択であり、アルファ対ベータ比が652であることがわかった。また、厚さ7$$mu$$mのプラスチックシンチレータは1MBq $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{90}$$Y線源に直接コンタクトして測定しても41.74$$pm$$0.93cpsのカウントレートであり、非常に低感度であるため飽和せずに測定を行うことが可能である。したがって、厚さ7$$mu$$mのプラスチックシンチレータを使用して、以前の方法では不可能だったFDNPSサイトのベータの表面汚染レベルをリアルタイムで直接測定することができる。

Measuring individual activities of Plutonium dioxide (PuO$$_{2}$$) particles is extremely important for the internal exposure of a worker to these particles. In this study, actual PuO$$_{2}$$ particles were measured using the CCD-camera-based alpha-particle imaging system. An electron multiplying(EM) CCD Camera was used for alpha particle imaging. A Pu sample was placed on top of the ZnS(Ag) scintillator, and produced scintillation light was captured using the CCD camera. This study showed that the CCD camera-based alpha-particle imaging system has some advantages compared to the conventional alpha particle imaging systems; (1) High spatial resolution, (2) Counting capability of individual alpha particles, (3) Real-time imaging.

Radiation transport simulations were used to analyse neutron imaging with the current-biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID). The PHITS Monte Carlo code was applied for simulating neutron, $$^{4}$$He, $$^{7}$$Li, photon and electron transport, $$^{10}$$B(n,$$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reactions, and energy deposition by particles within CB-KID. Slight blurring in simulated CB-KID images originated $$^{4}$$He and $$^{7}$$Li ions spreading out in random directions from the $$^{10}$$B conversion layer in the detector prior to causing signals in the $$X$$ and $$Y$$ superconducting Nb nanowire meander lines. 478 keV prompt gamma rays emitted by $$^{7}$$Li nuclei from neutron-$$^{10}$$B reactions had negligible contribution to the simulated CB-KID images. Simulated neutron images of $$^{10}$$B dot arrays indicate that sub 10 $$mu$$m resolution imaging should be feasible with the current CB-KID design. The effect of the geometrical structure of CB-KID on the intrinsic detection efficiency was calculated from the simulations. An analytical equation was then developed to approximate this contribution to the detection efficiency. Detection efficiencies calculated in this study are upper bounds for the reality as the effects of detector temperature, the bias current, signal processing and dead-time losses were not taken into account. The modelling strategies employed in this study could be used to evaluate modifications to the CB-KID design prior to actual fabrication and testing, conveying a time and cost saving.

Compton scattering of a single-energy $$gamma$$-ray results in a one-to-one relationship between the incident and scattered photon energies. This relationship is altered when the incident beam has a definite energy distribution because of the broadening occurring in the energy distribution upon Compton scattering. This broadening causes a change in the spectral density of the Compton-scattered spectra. To restore the spectral density, the energy distribution of the scattered radiation must be manifested as a function of the scattering kinematics. Here, we propose a simple analytic way to calculate the energy spread of the scattered photons in terms of the geometry of the scattering process and the energy spread of the incident photon beam. The predictions of the model agree with measurements of Compton scattering of quasi-monochromatic $$gamma$$-ray beams, carried out at the High Intensity $$gamma$$-ray Source (HI$$gamma$$S) facility, Duke University. As a benchmark of our method, we measured the intensity profile of energy-distributed $$gamma$$-ray beams by direct measurements as well as by Compton scattering. We found that only when the spectral density of the scattered radiation is restored, the measured intensity profile agrees with the actual profile of the incident beam. The proposed method can continuously measure the flux of an energy-distributed $$gamma$$-ray beams in the real time and on a bin-by-bin basis. Such online monitoring of $$gamma$$-ray beams is indispensable for in-beam measurements and applications.

The microstructural distribution in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) under the stainless overlay cladding of low alloy steel was investigated by metallurgical observation and finite element analysis (FEA). The distribution of the coarse-grain (CG) HAZ and the fine-grain (FG) HAZ in low alloy steel by metallurgical observation agreed well with the FEA results. Base metal contained mixed bainite with ferrite, whereas the CGHAZ and the FGHAZ contained mixed lower bainite with martensite and mixed upper bainite with ferrite, respectively. Ferrite fraction in FGHAZ was higher than those other areas. After ion irradiation at a fluence of 0.5 dpa, irradiation hardening and the formation of solute clusters were observed at the base metal, FGHAZ, and the CGHAZ. Atom probe tomography analysis revealed that irradiation hardening increased with increasing volume fraction of clusters, although irradiation hardening at the FGHAZ was greater than that at the CGHAZ, which contained more clusters than the FGHAZ. This difference in irradiation hardening may be due to the differences in the amount of ferrite, carbide precipitates and so on in the different microstructures.

We have developed a gas electron multiplier (GEM)-based time projection chamber (TPC) for the H-dibaryon search experiment at J-PARC. High-rate $$K^-$$ beam particles enter a TPC gas volume of approximately 0.2 m$$^3$$, in a direction perpendicular to the electric field. A long-rectangular hollow section is located inside the TPC volume to accommodate a diamond target. We commissioned the TPC using 230 MeV protons with beam rates of up to 1 MHz. The TPC data acquisition system collected 5768 pad signals in full readout mode, with almost 100% efficiency, at a preset trigger rate of 230 Hz. We operated the TPC in an Ar/CH$$_4$$ gas mixture (90/10) without a magnetic field. The spatial resolutions on the pad plane are measured to be 400-700 $$mu$$m, which correspond to 230-300 $$mu$$m in a magnetic field of 1 T. We confirmed high tracking capability at beam rates of up to 1 MHz.
