Polarization analysis for small-angle neutron scattering with a $$^{3}$$He spin filter at a pulsed neutron source

Okudaira, Takuya; Ueda, Yuki; Hiroi, Kosuke; Motokawa, Ryuhei; Inamura, Yasuhiro; Takata, Shinichi; Oku, Takayuki; Suzuki, Junichi*; Takahashi, Shingo*; Endo, Hitoshi*; et al.

Neutron polarization analysis (NPA) for small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments using a pulsed neutron source was successfully achieved by applying a $$^{3}$$He spin filter as a spin analyzer for the scattered neutrons. The $$^{3}$$He spin filter covers a sufficient solid angle for performing SANS experiments, and the relaxation time of the $$^{3}$$He polarization is sufficient for continuous use over a few days, thus reaching the typical duration required for a complete set of SANS experiments. Although accurate evaluation of the incoherent neutron scattering, which is predominantly attributable to hydrogen atoms in samples, is practically difficult using calculations based on the sample elemental composition, the developed NPA approach with consideration of the influence of multiple neutron scattering enabled reliable decomposition of the SANS intensity distribution into the coherent and incoherent scattering components. To date, NPA has not been well established as a standard technique for SANS experiments at pulsed neutron sources. This work is anticipated to greatly contribute to the accurate determination of the coherent neutron scattering component for scatterers in various types of organic sample systems in SANS experiments at J-PARC.

Evaluation of oxidation efficiency of hydrophobic palladium catalyst for $$^{3}$$H monitoring in radioactive gaseous waste

Furutani, Misa; Kometani, Tatsunari; Nakagawa, Masahiro; Ueno, Yumi; Sato, Junya; Iwai, Yasunori*

Hoken Butsuri (Internet), 55(2), p.97 - 101, 2020/06

Herein, an oxidation catalyst was introduced after heating it to 600$$^{circ}$$C to oxidize tritium gas (HT) existing in exhaust into tritiated water vapor (HTO). This study aims to establish a safer $$^{3}$$H monitoring system by lowering the heating temperature required for the catalyst. In these experiments, which were conducted in the Nuclear Science Research Institute, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, cupric oxide, hydrophobic palladium/silicon dioxide (Pd/SiO$$_{2}$$), and platinum/aluminum oxide (Pt/Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$) catalysts were ventilated using standard hydrogen gas. After comparing the oxidation efficiency of each catalyst at different temperatures, we found that the hydrophobic Pd/SiO$$_{2}$$ and Pt/Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ catalysts could oxidize HT into HTO at 25$$^{circ}$$C.

Parity violating effects enhanced by up to 10$$^6$$ times have been observed in several neutron induced compound nuclei. There is a theoretical prediction that time reversal (T) violating effects can also be enhanced in these nuclei implying that T-violation can be searched for by making very sensitive measurements. However, the enhancement factor has not yet been measured in all nuclei. The angular distribution of the (n,$$gamma$$) reaction was measured with $$^{139}$$La by using a germanium detector assembly at J-PARC, and the enhancement factor was obtained. From the result, the measurement time to achieve the most sensitive T-violation search was estimated as 1.4 days, and a 40% polarized $$^{139}$$La target and a 70% polarized $$^3$$He spin filter whose thickness is 70 atm$$cdot$$cm are needed. Therefore high quality $$^3$$He spin filter is developed in JAEA. The measurement result of the (n,$$gamma$$) reaction at J-PARC and the development status of the $$^3$$He spin filter will be presented.

Seya, Michio; Kureta, Masatoshi; Soyama, Kazuhiko; Nakamura, Hironobu; Harada, Hideo; Hajima, Ryoichi

Proceedings of INMM 55th Annual Meeting (Internet), 10 Pages, 2014/07

JAEA has been implementing development programs of basic technologies of the following advanced NDA (non-destructive assay) of nuclear material (NM) for nuclear safeguards and security. (1) Alternative to $$^{3}$$He neutron detection using ZnS/B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ ceramic scintillator, (2) NRD (neutron resonance densitometry) using NRTA (neutron resonance transmission analysis) and NRCA (neutron resonance capture analysis), (3) NRF (nuclear resonance fluorescence)-NDA using laser Compton scattered (LCS) $$gamma$$-rays (intense mono-energetic $$gamma$$-rays). The development program (1) is for NDA systems that use ZnS/B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ ceramic scintillator as alternative neutron detector to $$^{3}$$He for coming shortage of its supply. The program (2) is for a NDA system of isotopic composition measurement (non-destructive mass spectroscopy) in targets such as particle-like melted fuel debris using NRTA and NRCA. The program (3) is for NDA systems using a specific NRF reaction of certain Pu/U isotope caused by mono-energetic LCS $$gamma$$-ray with energy tuned to the specific excited state of the isotope. This paper introduces above three programs.

Novel instrument system for discriminating secondary particles in high-spatial-resolution neutron detection

Yamagishi, Hideshi; Nakamura, Tatsuya; Soyama, Kazuhiko; Masaoka, Sei; Aizawa, Kazuya

Review of Scientific Instruments, 75(7), p.2340 - 2345, 2004/07

A new instrument system with the capability of secondary-particle discrimination (InSPaD) was studied for the development of two-dimensional neutron detectors (2D-ND) filled with helium-3 gas and with high spatial resolution. The InSPaD can discriminate between the tracks of a proton and a triton created in the nuclear reaction $$^{3}$$He(${it n}$,${it p}$)${it T}$ by simply setting the level of discriminators appropriately in each signal channel, and the system exhibits a high spatial resolution, high counting rate, low background, and stability. The simulations of the 2D-ND equipped with the InSPaD revealed spatial resolutions of 0.46 mm in full width at half maximum for a 10% mixture of C$$_{2}$$H$$_{6}$$ with helium-3 at 0.3 MPa. The results of neutron-detection experiments using a microstrip gas chamber, including the range of the secondary particles and the pulse-height distribution, agreed well with the simulated results, indicating the feasibility of the InSPaD.

The prospect of D$$^{3}$$He/ST fusion power reactor have been explored and the design window of the reactor has been specified. The high temperature super-conductor (Bi2212/Ag/Ag) is chosen for TF coils; the operation temperature is 20 K; the conductor current density is about 110 MA/m$$^{2}$$ at 18-23 T. System analyses have indicated that the design window (which satisfies the constraints HH$$_{y2}$$$$leq$$2, ${it n}$$$_{e}$$/${it n}$$$_{GW}$$$$<$$1.1, and $$sigma$$TF$$leq$$800MPa) is amall and require ${it A}$$$>$$1.55, $$beta$$$$_{t}$$$$leq$$40%, and the first wall thermal losd ${it P}$$$_{w}$$$$<$$1.25 MW/m$$^{2}$$ to ensure the functional and structural reliabilities of the center column (i.e. TF coil system). The plasma current is 75-85 MA.

An influence of superfluidity on recombination reactions of H+T$$rightarrow$$HT, T+T$$rightarrow$$T$$_{2}$$ in $$^{3}$$He-$$^{4}$$He quantum media was studied under saturated vapor pressure at 1.6 K. A change of reaction mechanism was observed at transition point from normalfluid to superfluid phase. Tunneling reaction mechanism by H and T bubble atoms was proposed on the basis of large isotope effect.

Simulation of $$^{3}$$He minority Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequency (ICRF) Heating in International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER)

Matsumoto, Hiroshi

Japanese Journal of Applied Physics, Part 2, 40(11A), p.L1187 - L1189, 2001/11

 Times Cited Count:0 Percentile:0(Physics, Applied)

$$^{3}$$He minority ICRF Heating in ITER was simulated by the 1.5 D tokamak simulation code PRETOR and ICRF heating simulation code PION. It was found that the best heating efficiency in terms of the fusion power output is achieved with the smallest miority concentration ratio、0.5%, when the fuel dilution effect by the minority ions was taken into account. The overall heating efficiency is insensitive to the location of the resonance layer over a wide range of the minor radius position. Very efficient heating of the ITER plasma with $$^{3}$$He minority ICRF heating by spreading the RF depostion at three resonant locations was demonstarted by the PRETOR/PION simulation. In the Q=10 reference operation regime, ICRF is better than NBI by 8%, better than pure electron heating by 20%. In the low density region, ICRF is better than NBI by 15%, and better than electron heating by 50%.
