An experiment to evaluate a neutron flux for an irradiator using $$^{252}$$Cf was performed by the EC-JRC by applying the Westcott method to indium and gold activation foils. ISCN DG members subsequently developed an MCNP model for a flux comparison within the MEXT subsidiary budget for the promotion of applications related to nuclear security. The flux values are able to show values within 10% for the thermal evaluation with larger differences in the resonance peak energies. Contrarily, there are differences in the reaction rate and peak-count data-model comparisons that could provide new opportunities of basic science research.

Present safeguards verification methods of high-radioactivity nuclear material use destructive analysis techniques since passive nondestructive techniques are incapable of determining the nuclear material content. To improve this verification process, the JAEA and EC-JRC Ispra, Italy have been collaborating to develop delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy for composition analysis of the fissile nuclides as an aspect of the MEXT subsidy for improving nuclear security and the like. Multiple experiments were performed over three years using PUNITA to interrogate U and Pu samples to determine the signature from the short-lived fission products. We observed many gamma rays useful to determine the composition of a mixed nuclear material sample. Presented here are the results of these measurements with correlations to the interrogation, mass, volume, and sample homogeneity.

The accelerator-driven system (ADS) had been proposed for producing energy and transmuting minor actinide and long-lived fission products. ADS has attracted worldwide attention in recent years because of its superior safety characteristics and potential for burning plutonium and nuclear waste. At the Institute for Integrated Radiation and Nuclear Science, Kyoto University, a series of ADS experiments with 14 MeV neutrons was launched in fiscal year 2003 at the Kyoto University Critical Assembly (KUCA). Also, the high-energy neutrons generated by the interaction of 100 MeV protons with tungsten target was injected into the KUCA core on March 2009. The ADS experiments with 100 MeV protons obtained from the FFAG accelerator have been carried out to investigate the neutron characteristics of ADS. This special issue aims at concentrating on experimental analyses for the ADS benchmarks at KUCA on the basis of most recent advances in the development of computational methods, and contributing to academic progress for ADS research field in the future.

Local structures around impurities in solids provide important information for understanding the mechanisms of material functions, because most of them are controlled by dopants. For this purpose, the X-ray absorption fine structure method, which provides radial distribution functions around specific elements, is most widely used. However, a similar method using neutron techniques has not yet been developed. If one can establish a method of local structural analysis with neutrons, then a new frontier of materials science can be explored owing to the specific nature of neutron scattering-that is, its high sensitivity to light elements and magnetic moments. Multiple-wavelength neutron holography using the time-of-flight technique with pulsed neutrons has great potential to realize this. We demonstrated multiple-wavelength neutron holography using a Eu-doped CaF$$_{2}$$ single crystal and obtained a clear three-dimensional atomic image around trivalent Eu substituted for divalent Ca, revealing an interesting feature of the local structure that allows it to maintain charge neutrality. The new holography technique is expected to provide new information on local structures using the neutron technique.

This paper describes an overview of our recent discovery - clear demonstration that LiF crystals can be efficiently used as a high-performance neutron imaging detector based on optically stimulated luminescence of color centers generated by neutron irradiation. It is shown that the neutron images we have obtained are almost free from granular noise, have a spatial resolution of 5.4 $$mu$$m and a linear response with a dynamic range of at least 10$$^{3}$$. The high contrast and good sensitivity of LiF crystals allow us to distinguish two holes with less than 2% transmittance difference. We propose to use such detectors in areas where high spatial resolution with high image gradation resolution is needed, including diagnostics of different plasma sources such as laser and z-pinch produced plasmas.

High thermo-separation efficiencies of about 90% and 70% have been obtained for the first time for $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc from molten MoO$$_{3}$$ samples containing $$^{99}$$Mo with thicknesses of 4.0 and 8.8 mm, respectively, by repeated milking tests. $$^{99}$$Mo was produced with $$^{100}$$Mo($$n$$,2$$n$$)$$^{99}$$Mo by using neutrons from $$^{3}$$H($$d$$,$$n$$)$$^{4}$$He. The thermo-separation efficiency was determined by measuring the 141 keV $$gamma$$-ray yield of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc within the molten MoO$$_{3}$$ samples with a radiation detector as a function of the furnace temperature and time. The diffusion coefficients of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc in the molten MoO$$_{3}$$ samples were estimated in order to help understand the $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc release mechanism. The present result solves a long-standing problem of decreasing the separation efficiency of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc from MoO$$_{3}$$ while increasing the sample mass or repeating sublimation in thermo-separation, and will bring a major breakthrough to obtain high-quality $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc from MoO$$_{3}$$ irradiated by accelerator-neutrons (protons) or reactor-neutrons.

JENDL-3.3に格納されている$$^{237}Np$$, $$^{241}Am$$及び$$^{243}Am$$の核分裂断面積,捕獲断面積及び核分裂あたりの放出中性子数に対する共分散マトリックスを推定した。核分裂断面積の共分散はGMAコード,捕獲断面積のそれはKALMANコードを用いて推定した。低エネルギー領域では、共鳴パラメータの誤差を与えた。即発中性子数は一次関数を仮定して、共分散を求めた。遅発中性子については誤差のみを与えた。結果はENDF-6フォーマットで編集し、JENDL-3.3のデータと合わせたデータファイルを作成した。

ほとんどの核融合炉の概念設計において、ブランケットにおける中性子増倍材としてベリリウムの利用が提案されている。その核融合炉のトリチウム増殖比やベリリウムの放射化と核変換の評価においてはベリリウムの詳細な化学組成が必要である。本報告ではトリチウム増殖比の評価に関連する詳細な不純物分析に特に注目した。ここでは2つの異なった方法で不純物を調べた。1つはICP質量分析法による一部の試料の分析であり、もう1つはパルス化中性子を用いたベリリウム体系の積分的分析である。特に後者は$$^{6}$$Liによるトリチウム生成に対するベリリウム中の不純物の積分的効果の最も有効な分析法として提案した。D-T中性子のパルスをベリリウム体系に入射し、その後の熱中性子密度の時間変化を観測することにより積分的効果を評価した。本研究では構造材級ベリリウムを使用した。この不純物の影響は寄生的な中性子の吸収により実験で得られた$$^{6}$$Liによるトリチウム生成の反応率を減少させる。核データセットJENDL-3.2を用いたMCNPモンテカルロ計算と実験値を比較した結果、測定された吸収断面積は製作会社の特性値から評価した値より約30%大きくなった。ベリリウム中のLi, B, Cd等の不純物はたとえ10ppm以下でも吸収断面積に影響する。

流水の放射化を利用したITER用中性子モニターの設計を行った。照射端は赤道面のフィラー遮蔽モジュール内に真空容器を貫通して挿入する構造とした。$$gamma$$線測定ステーションは生体遮蔽外の上部ピットに設置し、照射端からの距離は20mとした。真空容器、ブランケットモジュール、フィラー遮蔽モジュール、第1壁を3次元モデル化し、JENDL 3.2核データライブラリーを使用したMCNP-4bコードを用いて各種特性を評価した。時間分解能は水配管に沿った放射化反応の分布及び乱流拡散を考慮して、10m/sの流速に対し時間分解能100ms(ITER要求値)以下であり、100kW-500MWのITERの出力範囲で測定が可能であることを示した。また放射化量はプラズマの位置にほとんど依存しないことがわかった。
