Deep learning approach for an interface structure analysis with a large statistical noise in neutron reflectometry

青木 裕之; Liu, Y.*; 山下 貴志*

Scientific Reports (Internet), 11(1), p.22711_1 - 22711_9, 2021/11

Neutron reflectometry (NR) allows us to probe into the structure of the surfaces and interfaces of various materials such as soft matters and magnetic thin films with a contrast mechanism dependent on isotopic and magnetic states. The neutron beam flux is relatively low compared to that of other sources such as synchrotron radiation; therefore, there has been a strong limitation in the time-resolved measurement and further advanced experiments such as surface imaging. This study aims at the development of a methodology to enable the structural analysis by the NR data with a large statistical error acquired in a short measurement time. The neural network-based method predicts the true NR profile from the data with a 20-fold lower signal compared to that obtained under the conventional measurement condition. This indicates that the acquisition time in the NR measurement can be reduced by more than one order of magnitude. The current method will help achieve remarkable improvement in temporally and spatially resolved NR methods to gain further insight into the surface and interfaces of materials.

The interaction between phonons and 4f electrons, which is forming a new quantum state (quasi-bound state) beyond Born-Oppenheimer approximation, is very prominent and lattice dynamics plays here a key role. There is only a small number of compounds in which the experimental observation suggest such a scenario. One of these compounds is CePd$$_2$$Al$$_2$$. The inelastic X-ray scattering technique was used for mapping the phonon modes at X and Z points as well as in L and D directions, where the symmetry analysis of phonon modes was performed. The measured spectra are compared with the theoretical calculation, showing very good agreement. The results are discussed with respect to the magneto-elastic interaction. The phonon mode symmetry A1g was found to be unaffected by the interaction, which is in contrast to previous assumptions.

Band-gap engineering is one of the fundamental techniques in semiconductor technology. To fully utilize the spintronic material, it is essential to optimize the spin-dependent electronic structure in operando conditions by applying the magnetic and/or electric fields. Here we present a new spectroscopic technique to probe the spin-polarized electronic structures by using magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) in resonant inelastic soft X-ray scattering (RIXS) under an external magnetic field. Thanks to the spin-selective dipole-allowed transitions in the RIXS-MCD, we have successfully demonstrated the direct evidence of the perfectly spin-polarized electronic structures for the prototypical halfmetallic Heusller alloy, Co$$_{2}$$MnSi. The RIXS-MCD is a promising tool to probe the spin-dependent carriers and band-gap with element specific way induced in buried magnetic layers under operando conditions.

Glassy magnetic behavior has been observed in a wide range of crystalline magnetic materials called spin glass. Here, we report spin glass behavior in a structural glass of a magnetic ionic liquid, C4mimFeCl$$_{4}$$. Magnetization measurements demonstrate that an antiferromagnetic ordering occurs at $$T_{rm N}$$ = 2.3 K in the crystalline state, while a spin glass transition occurs at $$T_{rm SG}$$ = 0.4 K in the structural glass state. In addition, localized magnetic excitations were found in the spin glass state by inelastic neutron scattering, in contrast to spin-wave excitations in the ordered phase of the crystalline sample. The localized excitation was scaled by the Bose population factor below $$T_{rm SG}$$ and gradually disappeared above $$T_{rm SG}$$. This feature is highly reminiscent of boson peaks commonly observed in structural glasses. We suggest the "magnetic" boson peak to be one of the inherent dynamics of a spin glass state.

FeNi合金からなる地球核は、H, C, O, Si, Sなどの軽元素を含んでいると考えられている。その中でHは、宇宙に最も存在する元素であり、最も有望な候補である。これまでの我々の中性子回折実験から、鉄-水系において、水素が他の元素より優先的に鉄に取り込まれることが分かっている。今回、初期地球の組成で水を含んだ鉄-ケイ酸塩系において、Sが及ぼす影響を調べた。その結果、一連の鉄の相転移、含水ケイ酸塩の脱水酸基およびカンラン石・輝石の形成を観察した。またFeの共存相としてFeSが現れた。Hがいる条件でもFeSの格子体積が一定であることから、FeSに水素は入らず、FeSはむしろFeの水素化を阻害することがわかった。高温高圧下から回収された試料を観察すると、FeにはHとSが入っており、HおよびSはFe(H$$_{x}$$)-FeS系の融点を下げる効果があることが分かった。一方回収試料には、C, O, Siなどの他の軽元素は含まれていないため、地球核形成時には、まずFeH$$_{x}$$およびFeSができ、その後さらに高温高圧下でFeHxやFeSが融解した後でないと、それらは核に取り込まれないことが分かった。

固体における熱量効果はいくつか知られているが、気体の膨張圧縮を用いた手法に比べ、効率的で環境に優しい冷凍効果が実現できることが知られている。新規な熱量効果を開拓することは、今後の持続的社会の実現などの観点から重要である。本論文では、フェリ磁性体BiCu$$_{3}$$Cr$$_{4}$$O$$_{12}$$が、一次相転移である電荷秩序温度190Kにおいて複数の熱量効果が重畳するマルチ熱量効果を示すことを発見した。この相転移温度に置けるエントロピー変化28.2J K$$^{-1}$$ kg$$^{-1}$$は、外部磁場の変化(磁気熱量効果)によっても、圧力の変化(圧力熱量効果)によっても利用可能であることが分かった。断熱状態の温度変化は、外部磁場50kOeのとき3.9K、圧力4.9kbarのとき4.8Kであった。これらの結果は、効率的な冷凍が複数の手法によって行える系であることを示す。

The Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP) accident released substantial amounts of radionuclides into the environment. We collected 4,957 deciduous teeth, from children living in Fukushima and reference prefectures. Radioactivity was detected in most of the teeth examined and was attributed to the presence of natural radionuclides, including $$^{40}$$K and daughter nuclides in $$^{238}$$U and $$^{232}$$Th series. Additionally, artificial radionuclides, $$^{90}$$Sr and $$^{137}$$Cs, were detected in the teeth obtained from children from Fukushima and the reference prefectures. However, these radionuclides were not believed to have originated from the FNPP accident. Because the teeth examined in the present study were formed before the FNPP accident occurred, the aforementioned findings may serve as important control data for future studies regarding the radioactivity of teeth formed after the FNPP accident.

ヒアルロン酸合成材4-メチルウンベリフェロン(4-MU)は、X線治療における放射線増感剤の候補として知られる。そのような4-MU投与下での放射線治療効果はin vitro試験により研究がおこなわれてきたが、放射線増感に関するメカニズムは未だ不明である。本研究では、細胞実験に加えて、モデル推定による理論解析を行い、4-MU投与下の放射線増感メカニズムを研究した。先ず、細胞実験により、4-MU投与とX線照射を組み合わせた治療時の腫瘍細胞(HT1080)の生存率を測定した。一方、4-MU投与による薬理学的効果をモデル化し、4-MU投与とX線照射による相乗効果を理論的に分析した。その結果から、4-MU投与による放射線増感効果は、約4Gyの中間線量範囲で最大となり、細胞間コミュニケーションの関与が示された。さらに、4-MU投与下において、DNA損傷の発生に関連する酸化ストレスレベルが優位に増加し、細胞間シグナルの阻害剤を加えることで放射線増感効果が抑制されることが分かった。本成果により、4-MU投与とX線照射による相乗効果は、細胞間コミュニケーションに起因し、従来のX線治療よりも効率的な腫瘍制御が見込めることが示された。

We bombarded Cu$$_{3}$$Pd(111) and Cu$$_{3}$$Pt(111) with a 2.3 eV hyperthermal oxygen molecular beam (HOMB) source, and characterized the corresponding (oxide) surfaces with synchrotron-radiation X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (SR-XPS). At 300 K, CuO forms on both Cu$$_{3}$$Pd(111) and Cu$$_{3}$$Pt(111). When we increase the surface temperature to 500 K, Cu$$_{2}$$O also forms on Cu$$_{3}$$Pd(111), but not on Cu$$_{3}$$Pt(111). For comparison, Cu$$_{2}$$O forms even at 300 K on Cu(111). On Cu$$_{3}$$Au(111), Cu$$_{2}$$O forms only after 500 K, and no oxides can be found at 300 K. We ascribe this difference in Cu oxide formation to the mobility of the interfacial species (Cu/Pd/Pt) and charge transfer between the surface Cu oxides and subsurface species (Cu/Pd/Pt).

A time-of-flight Bragg-edge neutron transmission imaging was used to investigate the microstructure and strain distributions in a gear hardened by a newly developed two-step induction-heating method: precursor (Sample 1) and final product (Sample 2). The edge- position and edge-broadening were determined and mapped with high spatial resolution, which enabled us to confirm the two-dimensional distributions of the microstructure and residual strain. A deep hardened layer was made for Sample 1 in which martensite was formed on the entire teeth and the outer peripheral portion of the gear body. Sample 2 was subjected to double induction-hardening, where a tempered martensite was formed as the thermal refined microstructure between a fine-grained martensite at the tooth surface and a ferrite-pearlite microstructure at the core. The relationship between edge-broadening and the Vickers hardness described by a linear equation was employed to derive the elastic residual strain. The residual strain map for Sample 2 revealed that a steep compressive strain was introduced into the fine-grained martensite at the tooth surface by the super rapid induction- heating and quenching process. The reversal of tension was speculated to occur below 2 mm from the tooth tip, and the strain was almost zero in the core region.

The structural form and elemental distribution of material originating from different Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant reactors (Units 1 and 3) is hereby examined to elucidate their contrasting release dynamics and the current in-reactor conditions to influence future decommissioning challenges. Complimentary computed X-ray absorption tomography and X-ray fluorescence data show that the two suites of Si-based material sourced from the different reactor Units have contrasting internal structure and compositional distribution. The known event and condition chronology correlate with the observed internal and external structures of the particulates examined, which suggest that Unit 1 ejecta material sustained a greater degree of melting than that likely derived from reactor Unit 3. In particular, we attribute the near-spherical shape of Unit 1 ejecta and their internal voids to there being sufficient time for surface tension to round these objects before the hot (and so relatively low viscosity) silicate melt cooled to form glass. In contrast, a more complex internal form associated with the sub-mm particulates invoked to originate from Unit 3 suggest a lower peak temperature, over a longer duration. Using volcanic analogues, we consider the structural form of this material and how it relates to its environmental particulate stability and the bulk removal of residual materials from the damaged reactors. We conclude that the brittle and angular Unit 3 particulate are more susceptible to further fragmentation and particulate generation hazard than the round, higher-strength, more homogenous Unit 1 material.
