Unified description of the fission probability for highly excited nuclei

Iwamoto, Hiroki; Meigo, Shinichiro

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 56(2), p.160 - 171, 2019/02

 Times Cited Count:2 Percentile:33.75(Nuclear Science & Technology)

We present a new model to describe the fission probability of the high-energy fission model, as deduced from the intranuclear cascade calculation with the Intra-Nuclear Cascade model of Li$`{e}$ge (INCL) version 4.6 and Prokofiev's phenomenological systematics of the proton-induced fission cross sections. This model is implemented in the de-excitation model of the Generalized Evaporation Model (GEM), and applied to Monte Carlo spallation reaction simulation using the Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS). Comparing with experimental data for subactinide nuclei shows that this model can provide a unified prediction of the proton-, neutron-, and deuteron-induced fission cross sections with markedly improved accuracy. The calculated fission fragments tend to shift to higher mass numbers. To account for the isotopic distributions of fission fragments within the framework of a coupled INCL/GEM, modification of INCL is required, especially for description of the highly-excited states of residual nuclei.

Measurement of high-energy neutron fluxes and spectra around the J-PARC mercury spallation neutron target using multi-foil activation method

Kasugai, Yoshimi; Harada, Masahide; Kai, Tetsuya; Oi, Motoki; Meigo, Shinichiro; Maekawa, Fujio

JAEA-Data/Code 2015-033, 28 Pages, 2016/03


The high-energy neutron fluxes and spectra around the mercury spallation neutron source at MLF of J-PARC were measured by the multi-foil activation method. The threshold energies of neutron reactions utilized in this experiment covered from 0.1 to 50 MeV. The foil irradiation was carried out on the first beam-run of MLF from May 30th to 31th, 2008. After the irradiation, the induced radioactivity of each foil was measured using an HPGe detector, and the neutron-induced reaction-rate distribution around the mercury target was determined. Using these data, the high-energy neutron fluxes and spectra were deduced with unfolding method in which the neutron spectra calculated with PHITS code were used as the initial-guess spectra. By comparison between the initial and the unfolded spectra, it was shown that most of the calculation results, which had been the basis of the neutronics design of the MLF target assembly, were consistent with the experimental data within $$pm$$30%.

The physicochemical property of radionuclides suspended in the air is an important parameter to evaluate internal doses due to the inhalation of the airborne radionuclides and to develop the air monitoring system in high-energy proton accelerator facilities. This study focuses on the property of radioactive airborne chlorine ($$^{38}$$Cl and $$^{39}$$Cl) and sulfur ($$^{38}$$S) formed from Ar gas by irradiation with high-energy neutrons. As a result of the irradiation to a mixture of Ar gas and dry air, $$^{38}$$Cl and $$^{39}$$Cl existed as non-acidic gas and $$^{38}$$S was present as acidic gas. Further, it was found that in the high-energy neutron irradiation to aerosol containing-Ar gas, the higher the amount of radioactive aerosols becomes, the lower that of radioactive acidic gas becomes.

Sub-millimeter synchrotron X-ray focusing by crystal bender

Yoneda, Yasuhiro; Matsumoto, Norimasa; Furukawa, Yukito*; Ishikawa, Tetsuya*

Physica Scripta, T115, p.995 - 997, 2005/00

Sagittal focusing is known as one of the most efficient focusing methods for synchrotron X-rays which increases the photon density at the sample position. Results are reported on the performance of a fixed height exit bender with an unribbed silicon (311) crystal. The fixed height exit was achieved by using a 4-point bending mechanism. This bending mechanism is designed for the SPring-8 standard double crystal monochromator (DCM) of bending-magnet beamlines and the bender is installed as a second crystal of the DCM. By using unribbed crystal, the focusing beam size was kept 0.5 mm in the energy ranges from 35 - 60 keV. Since mirrors for high-energy X-rays are still under development at the moment, focusing techniques by crystal bender are demanded for many practical applications.

A proof-of-principle test on plasma neutralizer, that is capable of enhancing a system efficiency of neutral beam injector for future fusion reactors, has been carried out. A 2 m long and 0.6 m diamater neutralizer with multicusp magnet line was used, improving the confinement of primary electrons flowed from both ends of the neutralizer by a pair of magnets. This improvement produced relatively high density Ar plasma of 10$$^{11}$$ - 10$$^{12}$$cm$$^{-3}$$ at low operating pressure of 0.002 Pa - 0.03 Pa. In the neutralization experiment, 200 keV H$$^{-}$$ ion beams were neturalized with the plasms and gas. Compared with the gas neutralization, the maximaum neutralization efficiency by the plasma was 6% higher than that by the gas. Further, an optimum Ar gas line density for maximizing the neutralization efficiency was 30% lower than that by the gas. These results are in good agreements with results analyzed from the cross-section data for neturalization. Thus, it was experimentally verified that the neutralization effiency can be enhanced at relatively low line density by using the plasma.

Inorganic glasses normally exhibit a network of interconncted covalent-bonded structural elements that has no long-range order. In silicate glasses the network formers are based on SiO$$_4$$-tetrahedra interconnected via oxygen atoms at the corners. Conventional wisdom then implies that alkaline and alkaline-earth orthosilicate materials cannot be vitrified because they do not contain sufficient network forming SiO$$_2$$ to establish the needed interconnectivity. We have studied a bulk magnesium orthosilicate glass obtained by containerless melting-and-cooling. We find that the role of network former is largely taken on by corner- and edge-sharing of highly distorted ionic Mg-O species that adopt 4-, 5- and 6-coordination with oxygen. The results suggest that similar novel glassy phases may be found in the containerless environment of interstellar space.

Accumulation of defects during energetic ion irradiation below $$sim$$10K in platinum thin films is studied by electrical resistivity measurements. Experimental results are analyzed by using a model which describes the production and selective radiation annealing of defects. For high-energy ($$sim$$100MeV) heavy ion irradiations, radiation annealing process due to electronic excitation is found mainly at the initial stage of irradiation. From the defect accumulation curve and defect recovery spectra, the effective temperature corresponding to the lattice agitation induced by electronic excitation is estimated.

Size distributions of $$^{38}$$Cl, $$^{39}$$Cl, $$^{82}$$Br and $$^{84}$$Br aerosols generated by irradiations of argon and krypton gases containing di-octyl phthalate (DOP) aerosols with 45MeV and 65MeV quasi-monoenergetic neutrons were measured to study the formation mechanism of radioactive particles in high energy radiation fields. Effects of the size distribution of the radioactive aerosols on the size of added DOP aerosols, the energy of irradiation neutrons and the kinds of nuclides were studied. The observed size distributions of the radioactive particles were explained by attachment of the radioactive atoms generated by the neutron-induced reactions to the DOP aerosols.

Two-dimensional X-ray focusing by crystal bender and mirrors

Yoneda, Yasuhiro; Matsumoto, Norimasa; Furukawa, Yukito*; Ishikawa, Tetsuya*

AIP Conference Proceedings 705 (CD-ROM), 4 Pages, 2003/00

Results are reported on the performance of a fixed height exit bender with an unribbed silicon (311) crystal. The anticlasic crveture can be minimized for a recutangular Si (311) focusing crystal with "clamped" or "builtin" boundary conditions if the length to width ratio of the crystal is 1.42. The test crystal used in this study was manufactured from a 98mm$$times$$90mm$$times$$2mm dimension of float zone silicon. After final etching, the ratio of the crystal is 1.435. The sub-millimeter sagittal focusing was achieved by using a 4-point bending mechanism in energy ranges from 30keV to 60keV.

Formation mechanism and size distribution of radioactive aerosol particles generated in a high-energy neutron field were studied in order to evaluate a particle size parameter for internal dose evaluation in high-energy accelerator facilities. Argon gas containing DOP aerosols was irradiated by a 65MeV quasi-monoenergetic neutron beam of TIARA. The number size distribution of the DOP aerosols and the activity-weighted size distribution of $$^{38}$$Cl and $$^{39}$$Cl aerosols, formed from the (n, 2np) and (n, np) reactions of $$^{40}$$Ar, were measured using an electrical low-pressure impactor. The activity-weighted size distribution of the radioactive aerosols was well explained by the simple attachment model of the radioactive atoms to the DOP aerosols.
