JAEA Reports

Development of imaging system with ultra-high spatial resolution aiming to detect alpha-dust (Contract research); FY2018 Center of World Intelligence Project for Nuclear Science/Technology and Human Resource Development

Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science; Tohoku University*

JAEA-Review 2019-038, 57 Pages, 2020/03


JAEA/CLADS, had been conducting the Center of World Intelligence Project for Nuclear Science/Technology and Human Resource Development (hereafter referred to "the Project") in FY2018. The Project aims to contribute to solving problems in nuclear energy field represented by the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. For this purpose, intelligence was collected from all over the world, and basic research and human resource development were promoted by closely integrating/collaborating knowledge and experiences in various fields beyond the barrier of conventional organizations and research fields. Among the adopted proposals in FY2018, this report summarizes the research results of the "Development of Imaging System with Ultra-high Spatial Resolution Aiming to Detect Alpha-dust". In the present study, we have developed a prototype of a system aiming to elucidate the behavior of alpha-dust generated at the time of debris retrieval. In this system, alpha-ray is first converted to visible light by novel scintillator. Then, imaging with ultra-high resolution will be possible using a lens and an Si-semiconductor camera (CMOS camera). Also, it will be possible to identify the species of alpha-ray emitting nuclides by unfolding of the spectra. The demonstration tests of the system will be conducted for dust samplers at the Plutonium Fuel Development Center, JAEA. In the development of the present system, it is important to use scintillator whose emission wavelength is sensitive to the CMOS camera as well as high emission scintillator. Considering these conditions, the key technology will be the improvement of the purity of crystals and optimization of the shapes of the materials including powers.

Neutron image characteristics of imaging plates using SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ photostimulabe phosphors

Sakasai, Kaoru; Katagiri, Masaki; Nakamura, Tatsuya

JAERI-Research 2004-019, 33 Pages, 2004/12


As a new candidate for raw materials of a neutron imaging plate, characteristics of a SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ phosphor that has boron (B) in the base matrix as a neutron converter have been investigated. The phosphor has a strong merit that it generates photostimulated luminescence of 390 nm by illumination of red laser light after neutron irradiation. The emission and excitation wavelengths were the same as those of commercially available neutron imaging plate. Therefore, the authors have fabricated neutron imaging plates by painting the phosphor on Al plates. Neutron imaging experiments using the fabricated imaging plates were carried out with a commercially available image reader. A Li block was used as a camera subject in the experiments. As a result of the experiments, it was confirmed that the neutron image was clearly obtained, though the intensity of the image was not so high. The position resolution of 0.2 mm was obtained when the readout resolution of 50 $$mu$$m in the reader was used.

A Neutron crystallographic analysis of a rubredoxin mutant at 1.6 ${AA}$ resolution

A neutron diffraction study has been carried out at 1.6 ${AA}$ resolution on a mutant rubredoxin from ${it Pyrococcus furiosus}$ using the BIX-3 single-crystal diffractometer at the JRR-3 reactor of JAERI. In order to study the unusual thermostability of rubredoxin from ${it P. furiosus}$, the hydrogen-bonding patterns were compared between the native and a 'triple-mutant' variant where three residues were changed so that they are identical to those in a mesophilic rubredoxin. In the present study, some minor changes were found between the wild-type and mutant proteins in the hydrogen-bonding patterns of the Trp3/Tyr3 region. The H/D-exchange ratios in the protein were also studied. The results suggest that the backbone amide bonds near the four Cys residues of the FeS$$_{4}$$ redox center are most resistant to H/D exchange. In addition, the 1.6 ${AA}$ resolution of the present neutron structure determination has revealed a more detailed picture than previously available of some portions of the water structure, including ordered and disordered O-D bonds.

Development of micro-strip gas chamber for neutron scattering; Development and simulation of encode board

Masaoka, Sei; Nakamura, Tatsuya; Yamagishi, Hideshi; Soyama, Kazuhiko

JAERI-Research 2003-012, 14 Pages, 2003/06


A micro-strip gas chamber (MSGC) using helium-3 gas has been developing as a two-dimensional position sensitive neutron detector for neutron scattering experiments in a high-intensity proton accelerator facility. We have developed the encode board that have built-in FPGAs (Field-Programmable Gate Array). Logics of FPGAs can be freely programmed to carry out digital processing of signals from MSGC and information of the tracks of protons and tritons can be obtained by the encode board. Therefore, the position of neutron capture (more properly the centra of the track) can be calculated by a series of data handling system. As the result of the simulation of a neutron detection experiment, it has proved that the position resolution of less than 1.6 mm can be obtained by using this data handling system.
