Times Cited Count：12 Percentile：20.87(Astronomy & Astrophysics)Nuclear level density plays an important role in applications to nuclear energy and nuclear astrophysics, dominating neutron-capture cross sections. In this paper, we propose a new, practical and accurate method of estimating nuclear level density within the framework of the nuclear shell model, and show its feasibility and usefulness. This method is based on the idea that the level density is obtained by the number of eigenstates that is represented as a contour integral in the complex plane. We first confirm the feasibility of this method using a small system in which the exact eigenstates are available, and then calculate parity-dependent level density in Ni, which cannot be calculated with direct eigenstate counting. We succeed in reproducing the experimental result that the and level densities are almost identical in low-energy regions, which cannot be obtained with conventional methods of estimating level densities.

Nuclear reaction calculations using the statistical model require information of the nuclear level density. While the phenomenological models such as Fermi Gas model are often used to calculate the nuclear level density in usual nuclear data evaluations, reliability of such level density depends on parameter adjustments using experimental values. Therefore, development of microscopic calculation methods that does not depend on parameter adjustments is desired. One of the microscopic methods to calculate the nuclear level density is the combinatorial method that uses single-particle levels obtained from Hartree-Fock theory, and its reliability has been discussed through the reproducibility of the s-wave neutron resonance spacing . However, comparisons of cross sections with experiments are only preformed for (n,) reaction of some nuclei, and is still insufficient. Therefore, in this work, we calculate the nuclear level density using the combinatorial method, and apply it to the nuclear reaction calculations such as (n,) reaction and (n,2n) reaction calculations. The cross sections of these reactions adding to the s-wave neutron resonance spacing for stable nuclei are compared with the experiments systematically, and then the reliability of the nuclear level density is discussed.

While Fermi Gas type phenomenological models are widely used to calculate the nuclear level density (NLD) of stable nuclei, it is important to develop a microscopic method to achieve reliable NLD for unstable nuclei. One of microscopic methods to calculate NLD is that based on the microscopic nuclear structure calculation using Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (HFB) theory. Since a effective nuclear interaction is basically the only input in HFB calculation, we investigated how the calculated NLD depends on it with special attention to the adopted pairing interaction, to discuss about the reliability of this method. Adding to SkM* force that was used in our previous study, SLy4, SkP, and UNEDF1 forces were used in HFB calculations of the present study. The statistical method was applied to derive NLD based on HFB calculation. We compared the s-wave resonance spacing D derived from the calculated NLD with the experiments, and found better agreement with the results with SkP and UNEDF1 forces compared to those with SkM and SLy4 forces.

To establish a reasonable nuclear transmutation technology for long-lived fission products (LLFPs), it is important to improve precision of the nuclear data needed for the simulation of the nuclear transmutation. The level density is essential for the nuclear reaction calculation using the statistical model, and it has significant influence on the precision of the nuclear data evaluation. Although a phenomenological model such as Fermi Gas model is used in a usual nuclear data evaluation, it is considered that using a microscopic theory that has predictive power superior to a phenomenological model brings better precision for the nuclear data. In this study, to improve precision of the nuclear data of LLFPs and nuclei around LLFPs, the level densities needed for the nuclear data evaluation of those nuclei were derived based on the microscopic nuclear data calculation. In this derivation, we improved the calculation method to describe prcisely the effect of the deformation change with nuclear excitation. To analyze precision of the nuclear reaction calculation, we compared the cross sections of various reaction channel systematically with the experimental data of stable nuclei.
