The use of Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis to characterize homogeneous samples not fulfilling good transmission geometry conditions is discussed. Analytical expressions for such samples have been derived and implemented in the resonance shape analysis code REFIT. They were validated by experiments at the time-of-flight facility GELINA using a set of metallic natural copper samples. The expressions were used to derive sample characteristics by a least squares adjustment to experimental transmission data. In addition, the resonance parameters of Cu for energies below 6 keV, which are reported in the literature and recommended in evaluated data libraries, were verified. This research was implemented under the subsidiary for nuclear security promotion of MEXT.

中性子準弾性散乱(QENS)は、鉱物結晶格子内で起こる原子スケール水素拡散プロセスを分析するための新規かつ有効な方法であることが実証されている。この方法は、凝縮体中の拡散性が高い水素原子または水分子の拡散頻度および距離を分析するために敏感であると以前から考えられていた。本論文では、水酸基として結晶格子に結合している非常に遅い運動の水素原子の拡散運動を分析する応用研究の結果が示されている。ブルーサイト鉱物( brucite)、Mg(OH)$$_{2}$$では、水素原子の単一の二次元層面内でのジャンプとそれに最も近い次の層へのジャンプの2種類の水素拡散プロセスが観察された。ブルーサイトの結晶構造内で観察されるこれらの拡散プロセスは、層状構造を有する様々な種類の酸化物およびミネラル内で起こる水素拡散現象にQENS測定が適用可能であることを示している。

As a non-destructive analytical technique for nuclear material in the field of nuclear security and nuclear nonproliferation, a neutron resonance transmission analysis (NRTA) attracts attention of researchers. It is important to downsize a NRTA system when it is deployed at various facilities. For this aim, we have developed a compact NRTA system which utilizes a D-T neutron generator. Its pulse width of 10$$mu$$s is much longer than that of a large electron beam accelerator. It is necessary to understand the influence of pulse widths on the NRTA measurement. Therefore, we conducted the experiments of the simulated nuclear fuel pin samples to evaluate how the NRTA measurement is influenced by the pulse width of neutron beam. Experiments were performed in Kyoto University. The simulated fuel pellet sample was made from metallic powders of Ag (around 1%) and Al (around 99%). The energy of the irradiation neutron is determined by a Time of Flight technique. We used three pulse widths of the neutron beam of 0.1, 1 and 4 $$mu$$s. A resonance dip of $$^{108}$$Ag at 5.19 eV is observed in the all spectra. And the dip of the TOF spectrum shifts towards low energy, with pulse width changed to a longer one. In this work, we confirmed that neutron pulse width affected the NRTA measurement of the fuel pin sample. On the basis of this work, we will be able to quantify the effects of long-pulse width in a resonance analysis.

In fields of nuclear safeguards and nuclear security, non-destructive assay (NDA) techniques are needed in order to quantify special nuclear materials (SNMs) in nuclear fuels. Among those techniques, active NDA ones would be preferable to passive ones. One candidate of active NDA techniques is neutron resonance transmission analysis (NRTA). In fact, experiments done at GELINA have shown that NRTA has high potential enough to quantify SNMs in complex materials. Currently, such a NRTA system requires a large electron accelerator facility to generate intense neutron sources. In other words, it is very difficult to perform NRTA at various facilities that need to measure SNMs. Thus, downsizing a NRTA system would be one solution of its difficulty. In order to realize a compact NRTA system, we develop a prototype with a D-T neutron generator that has a pulse width of 10 $$mu$$s. For this aim, numerical calculations to optimize the compact NRTA system were done. In addition, NRTA measurements with simulated fuel pins were made at neutron time-of-flight facilities such as GELINA. In this presentation, we present results of the numerical calculations and the experimental results. On the basis of those results we discuss a future prospect of a compact NRTA system that would be applicable to SNM quantification. This research was implemented under the subsidiary for nuclear security promotion of MEXT.

The use of a short flight path is effective in the neutron resonance analysis. On the other hand, such a short path would reduce a time resolution in Time-Of-Flight (TOF) measurements. In order to investigate the effect of neutron flight-path length, we carried out Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis (NRTA) experiments with a short neutron flight path at the Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute - Linear Accelerator (KURRI-LINAC). In measurements of Neutron Resonance Densitometry, the quantity of nuclear materials is determined from TOF spectra obtained in the neutron energy range below 30 eV. Performing NRTA experiments with a 7-m flight path at KURRI-LINAC, we examined effects of flight path and pulse width on a TOF spectrum. A resonance dip of $$^{183}$$W at 27 eV in a TOF spectrum was successfully observed with an electron pulse width less than 2 $$mu$$s. In this presentation, we will discuss importance of the pulse width and short flight path to study design of a compact TOF facility to quantify nuclear materials.

The effect of thermo-mechanical treatments (TMTs) on the evolution of nano-structure in an oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) ferritic/martensitic steel (Fe-9Cr-2W-0.22Ti-0.36Y$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$) was investigated. TMTs involve hot extruding and subsequent forging, which are expected to be part of a future industrial-scale manufacturing process of the ODS steel. It was shown that the ODS steel was composed of two phases - a fine-grained residual ferrite phase and a transformable martensite phase. The number density of the nano-sized particles in the residual ferrite phase was significantly higher than that in the martensite phase. The TMTs did not significantly affect the number density, but slightly affected the size distribution of the nano-sized particles in both ferrite phase and martensite phase. Moreover, the volume fraction of the residual ferrite phase decreased after TMTs. In summary, the TMT conditions could be a parameter which affects the nano-structure of the ODS steel.

Based on the time-of-light (TOF) technique, new generation pulsed neutron sources enable novel neutron scattering experiments. Using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) at the pulsed neutron sources, simultaneous measurements of SANS and Bragg edge transmission can be performed. From the SANS profiles, the precipitates and inclusions in metals and alloys are characterized, while the Bragg edge transmission spectra give crystallographic information about the matrix. This is a powerful tool for quantitative characterization of the microstructures in the metals and alloys. The neutron transmission experiments have potential for further development. Magnetic Bragg edge transmission analysis will be useful for magnetic materials. These new neutron scattering techniques enhance the usability and flexibility of neutron scattering experiments.

Pulsed neutron sources enable the simultaneous measurement of small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and Bragg edge transmission. This simultaneous measurement is useful for microstructural characterization in steel. Since most steels are ferromagnetic, magnetic scattering contributions should be considered in both SANS and Bragg edge transmission analyses. An expression for the magnetic scattering contribution to Bragg edge transmission analysis has been derived. The analysis using this expression was applied to Cu steel. The ferrite crystallite size estimated from this Bragg edge transmission analysis with the magnetic scattering contribution was larger than that estimated using conventional expressions. This result indicates that magnetic scattering has to be taken into account for quantitative Bragg edge transmission analysis. In the SANS analysis, the ratio of magnetic to nuclear scattering contributions revealed that the precipitates consist of body-centered cubic Cu$$_{0.7}$$Fe$$_{0.3}$$ and pure Cu, which probably has 9R structure including elastic strain and vacancies. These results show that effective use of the magnetic scattering contribution allows detailed analyses of steel microstructure.

Neutron resonance densitometry (NRD) is a non-destructive analysis method, which can be applied to quantify special nuclear materials (SNM) in small particle-like debris of melted fuel that is formed in severe accidents of nuclear reactors such as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants. NRD uses neutron resonance transmission analysis (NRTA) to quantify SNM and neutron resonance capture analysis (NRCA) to identify matrix materials and impurities. In order to generalize NRD for the characterization of arbitrary-shaped thick materials, a generalized method to analyze NRTA data has been developed. The method has been applied on data resulting from transmission through non-uniform thick samples with varying areal density of SNM up to 0.253 at/b ($$approx$$100 g/cm$$^{2}$$). The investigation shows that NRD could be used to quantify SNM in not only uniform samples made of small particle-like debris but also non-uniform samples made of large rock-like debris with high accuracy by utilizing the generalized analysis method for NRTA.

定常炉心試験装置(JT-60SC)のポート部分の中性子遮へいは、ポリエチレンよりも温度特性に優れたレジン(商標名: KRAFTON)を使用した設計となっている。超伝導コイルの核発熱量低減のための遮へい性能を保ちつつ、ポート重量を軽減させるため、筆者らはレジンに天然ボロンを添加した、ボロン入りレジンを開発した。ボロン添加量を変えた数種類の試料に、DD反応で発生する2.45MeV中性子を照射し、透過中性子を測定し、ボロン入りレジンの遮へい性能を比較した。高速中性子の遮へい性能はボロン添加量に依存せず同じであった。一方、低エネルギー中性子の遮へい性能はボロン2重量%の試験体がボロン1重量%の試験体より約25%良く、ボロン添加の効果が観測された。

本研究では、RBS法,NDP法及びアルファ粒子分光法を用いて、1H, 3H, 4Heや7Liがフラーレン薄膜に入射した時のstopping cross sectionsが測定された。測定値は系統的に計算値よりも大きくなった。この原因としては、イオン入射によるフラーレン薄膜の化学的状態変化と関連していると考えられる。一方energy stragglingに関しても、Bohrによる計算値よりも大きい値が得られた。これに関しては、試料薄膜の厚さの変動によるものと想定される。
