A new data acquisition system (DAQ system) in J-PARC Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) ANNRI was developed. Increasing beam power of MLF in recent years allows beam line users to obtain high quantity experimental data yields. Compared to 2008, more than 20 times beam current is achieved in 2015. For the purpose to correspond strong beam power of MLF, a new DAQ system for the array of the Ge detectors in ANNRI is developed. The DAQ system is also going to be used for processing signals from a Li glass detector, which is under development at ANNRI for measurement of total neutron cross sections. Commissioning experiment of a new DAQ system at ANNRI was performed by using 0.1mmt Au sample with 500kW J-PARC proton beam power. An applicability of time-of-flight method for both neutron capture and total cross-sections measurements was checked. ADC and TDC nonlinearity, energy resolution, multi-channel coincidence and dead time performance for the array of the Ge detectors were also evaluated. The dead time value for Ge detectors was successfully decreased to 1/4 from the previous DAQ system with minor deterioration on energy resolution. The author would like to thank the accelerator and technical staff at J-PARC for operation of the accelerator and the neutron production target and for the other experimental supports. Present study includes the result of "Research and Development for accuracy improvement of neutron nuclear data on minor actinides" entrusted to the Japan Atomic Energy Agency by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan (MEXT).

Study on response function of organic liquid scintillator for high-energy neutrons

Satoh, Daiki; Sato, Tatsuhiko; Endo, Akira; Yamaguchi, Yasuhiro; Takada, Masashi*; Ishibashi, Kenji*

AIP Conference Proceedings 769, p.1680 - 1683, 2005/05

Response function of liquid organic scintillators is essential to derive the accurate neutron spectrum. Experimental data above 100 MeV, however, are very scarce. The existing Monte Carlo codes, SCINFUL and CECIL, are often used for estimation of the response function instead of the experimental data. These codes are known to reproduce well the response function for incidences below 100 MeV. Unfortunately, the codes are not applicable to the calculation in the higher energy region. In order to determine the response functions above 100 MeV, a new Monte Carlo code, designated as SCINFUL-QMD, has been developed. In the comparison with the experimental data up to 800 MeV, the validation of SCINFUL-QMD was confirmed. The results of SCINFUL-QMD agreed with the experimental data better than those of other calculation codes.

The present status of nuclear data for technetium (Tc)-99, which is a well-known fission product (FP), has been reviewed and investigated. And making use of the Kyoto university Lead Slowing-down Spectrometer (KULS), the cross section of the $$^{99}$$Tc (n, $$gamma$$) $$^{100}$$Tc reaction has been measured in the energy range from thermal to keV neutron energy with an Ar-gas proportinal counter. The neutron flux/spectrum has been monitored with a BF$$_{3}$$ proportional counter, and the relative measurement has been normalized to the well-known standard capture cross section value for the $$^{99}$$Tc (n, $$gamma$$) $$^{100}$$Tc reaction at 0.0253 eV. Self-shielding corrections, especially near the resonance peaks, were made by the calculations with the MCNP code. Although the experimental data measured by Chou et al with a lead slowing-down spectrometer are higher in general, the energy dependency is similar to the present measurement. The evaluated data in ENDF/B-VI and JENDL-3.2 are higher near the resonances at 5.6 and 20 eV and above several 100 eV. A lead slowing-down spectrometer was installed coupled to a 46 MeV electron linac at the Research Reactor Institute, Kyoto university (KURRI). Characteristics of the Kyoto University Lead Slowing-down Spectrometer (KULS) were measured and (1)the relation between neutron slowing-down time t($$mu$$s) and energy E(keV) (E=190/t$$^{2}$$ in Bi hole and E=156/t$$^{2}$$ in Pb hole) and (2)the energy resolution ($$sim$$40% in Bi and Pb holes) were experimentally investigated. (3)The neutron energy spectrum in the KULS was also measured by the neutron TOF method. The results obtained by the MCNP code were in general agreement with these experimental ones.

For studies on nuclear transmutation of long-lived fission products (LLFPs) in a fast reactor, detailed characteristics of reactor core such as transmutation performance have to be investigated, so accurate neutron cross section data of LLFPs become necessary. Therefore, the keV-neutron capture cross sections of Tc-99, which is one of important LLFPs, were measured in the present study to obtain the accurate data. The measurement was relative to the standard capture cross sections of Au-197. A neutron time-of-flight method was adopted with a ns-pulsed neutron source by a Pelletron accelerator and a large anti-Compton NaI(TI) gamma-ray detector. As a result, the capture cross sections of Tc-99 were obtained with the error of about 5 % in the incident neutlon energy region of 10 to 600 keV. The present data were compared with other experimental data and the evaluated values of JENDL-3.2, and it was found that the evaluations of JENDL-3.2 were 15-20 % smaller than the present measurements.

In fuel cycles with recycled actinide, core characteristics are largely influenced by minor actinide (MA: Np, Am), Accurate nuclear data of MA such as fission cross section are required to estimate the effect of MA with high accuracy. In this study, fast neutron induced fission cross section of MA was measured using Dynamitron Accelerator in Tohoku University. New or improved techniques and tools with high precision and fast timing capability were developed for this study. Those are as follows: (1)Development of a sealed fission chamber,(2)Intensification of Li neutron target, (3)Improvement of time-resolution of Time-of-Right (TOF) electronic circuit, (4)Introduction of MA (Np237, Am241 and Am243) samples with large sample mass and (5)Introduction of a U235 sample with high purity. Using these improved tools and samples, fission cross section of Np237 was measured between 10 to 100 keV. On the other hand, averaged fission cross section for Maxwell distribution spectrum with kt=25.3 keV was measured for Am241 and Am243.

In fuel cycles with recycled actinide, core characteristics are largely influenced by minor actinide (MA:Np, Am, Cm). Accurate nuclear data of MA such as fission cross section are required to estimate the effect of MA with high accuracy.In this study fast neutron induced fission cross section of MA is measured using Dynamitron Accelerator in Tohoku University. The experimental method and the samples, which were developed or introduced during the last year, were improved in this fiscal year: (1)Development of a sealed fission chamber, (2)Intensification of Li neutron target, (3)Improvement of time-resolution of Time-of-flight (TOF) electronic circuit, (4)Introduction of Np237 samples with large sample mass and (5)Introduction of a U235 sample with high purity. Using these improved tools and samples, the fission cross section ratio of NP237 relative to U235 was measured between 5 to 100keV, and the fission cross section of Np237 was deduced. On the other hand, samples of Am241 and Am243 were obtained from Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) after investigating fission cross section of two americium isotopes (Am241 and Am243) which are important for core physics calculation of fast reactors.
