We found that the sizes of the Gd islands determined from the transmission image correlated strongly with those determined from the SEM image. We demonstrated the CB-KID could be used to identify (1) tiny voids in a thermally sprayed continuous Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$ film in and (2) various mosaic morphologies and different eutectic microstructures in Wood's metal samples. The fact that the CB-KID system could be used to identify features of samples with a wide distribution of sizes and thicknesses is promising for real application of the device for imaging samples of interest to material scientists. Operating the CB-KID at higher temperatures appreciably improved the efficiency for simultaneously identifying the X and Y positions of hotspots. We also compared the detection efficiency with the PHITS simulations. We now plan to improve the detection efficiency by increasing the thickness of the $$^{10}$$B neutron conversion layer

We demonstrated that a four-readout superconducting neutron imaging system shows good spatial heterogeneity and linearity using the delay-line method. We examined the precise pattern of a $$^{10}$$B-dot-array absorber and found the X-direction pitch (Px) = 250.7 um with a scatter of (Hx)= 5.4 um and the Y-direction pitch (Py)= 249.1 um with a scatter of (Hy)= 3.4 um while the $$^{10}$$B dot array was fully extended toward the X direction across the detector sensitive area. We consider that this demonstrates detection with good spatial homogeneity and conclude. The transmission-imaging system is suitable for use at pulsed neutron facilities. We also reported a clear transmission image of tiny screws and nuts, and ladybug (insect). We recognize that further efforts to improve the detection efficiency are necessary to make using the detector more practical.

Our CB-KID neutron imager detects high spatial resolution neutrons transmission images by using a delay-line technique. We found that the number of events was remarkably increased with increasing the detector temperature until close to the critical temperature Tc. We investigated the properties of CB-KID at near Tc. We observed systematic changes of neutron signals as a function of the detector temperature from 4 K to Tc. The simulations modeled the sequential physical processes for $$^{10}$$B(n,$$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reactions and energy deposition by particles within CB-KID, including neutrons, $$^{4}$$He particles, $$^{7}$$Li particles, photon and electron transport.

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)物質・生命科学実験施設において1MWの陽子ビームで駆動する核破砕中性子源では、水銀ターゲットで発生した高速中性子を冷中性子に冷却するために、液体水素(1.5MPa, 20K以下)を3基のモデレータに供給し、そこで発生する核発熱(3.8kW)を強制方式で冷却する低温水素システムを備えている。この低温水素システムでは、核発熱に伴う系内の圧力変動を低減するためにベローズ構造で圧力を吸収するアキュムレータを採用していることが特徴である。しかしながら、初期に使用したベローズで不具合が生じたため、高耐圧, 長寿命のアキュムレータが必要となった。厚肉プレートによる高耐圧性を有する溶接ベローズ(内ベローズ)の要素技術開発を行い、最適条件を見出すことができた。内ベローズの試作機を製作し、2MPaの圧力印加を繰り返す耐久試験により、設計寿命(1万回以上)を満たすことを確認した。また、その製作法による内ベローズを導入したアキュムレータの組立時、溶接歪等によって内ベローズの機能性や寿命に影響しないように、水平・垂直度を0.1$$^{circ}$$以内に抑えた。改良したアキュムレータは既に約25,000時間(繰り返し伸縮約16,000回(運転中40mm伸縮の設計寿命は50万回))の運転を実現できており、2019年1月現在、500kWビーム出力で運転中である。2018年7月には932kWビーム入射した運転を行い、アキュムレータの圧力変動抑制機能が設計どおりの性能を有することを確認し、今後の高出力において安定運転ができる見通しを得た。

At the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source, liquid hydrogen moderators composed of 99.8% parahydrogen associated with light-water premoderator have been providing high intensity cold and thermal neutron beams. In the design stage, simulations have shown not only high total neutron intensity in the coupled moderator but also a local neutron-brightness increase at the edges. The edge-effect-brightness increase is also exploited in the design of the European Spallation Source (ESS) moderators, which are based on 99.8% parahydrogen, but thin (thickness: 3 cm) to enhance the neutron brightness. In this study, the spatial distribution of the neutron brightness at the surface of the coupled moderator in the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source was directly measured with the pinhole geometry to validate the calculated edge-brightness enhancement. The brightness distribution at the moderator surface was clearly observed as predicted by a Monte Carlo simulation, proving the validity of the simulation tools used in the design-optimization process of the J-PARC and ESS moderator.

We carried out Monte Carlo calculation to provide energy resolution of pulsed neutron beam for TOF measurements in the KURRI-LINAC pulsed neutron facility. The calculations were performed for moderated neutron flux at the energy range from 0.01 eV to 20 MeV. As the result, we obtained the energy resolutions ($$Delta$$E/E) in the epi-thermal region. For example, the energy resolutions were 1.0% in the neutron energy of 1.0 eV, 1.1% in 100.0 eV and 1.7% in 1.0 keV.

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.

Recent progress of pulsed neutron sources has enabled energy-resolved analysis of neutron attenuation spectra, which include information on neutron scattering. In this study, a new analysis technique for small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) is demonstrated. A clear difference is observed in the neutron attenuation spectra between steels with different nanostructures; this difference can be understood as arising from attenuation due to SANS. The neutron attenuation spectra, calculated from the corresponding SANS profiles, agree well with the experimentally observed attenuation spectra. This result indicates that measurement of neutron attenuation spectra may enable the development of a novel experimental technique, i.e. energy-resolved SANS (ESANS).

To investigate the applicability of the pulsed neutron source (PNS) method using a pulsed spallation neutron source (PSNS) for an on-line subcriticality monitoring system for an accelerator-driven system (ADS), a subcriticality experiment is conducted using Kyoto University Criticality Assembly (KUCA) in combination with the fixed-field alternating gradient (FFAG) accelerator. Reactivity values obtained from different traditional techniques, the area-ratio method and the $$alpha$$-fitting method, are discussed with respect to the applicability to on-line subcriticality monitoring. The result shows that the area-ratio method robustly and accurately monitors subcriticality in shallow subcritical states of negative reactivity of up to a few dollars; however with this method, it faces problems with temporal fluctuations, spatial dispersion, and sensitivity to the proton-beam current with increasing depth of subcriticality. As a complement to this method, it is shown that the $$alpha$$-fitting method alleviates such problems in deep subcritical state. Moreover, a proposed fitting technique using the maximum-likelihood estimation method based on the Poisson distribution is robust enough to be applicable for measuring negative reactivity of up to roughly nine dollars.

We successfully derived the time-dependent flux of pulsed neutrons using a superconducting Nb-based current biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID) with a $$^{10}$$B conversion layer at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. Our CB-KID is a meander line made of a 40-nm-thick Nb thin film with 1-$$mu$$m line width, which is covered with a 150-nm-thick $$^{10}$$B conversion layer. The detector works at a temperature below 4 K. The evaluated detection efficiency of the CB-KID in this experiment is 0.23% at the neutron energy of 25.4 meV. The time-dependent flux spectra of pulsed neutrons thus obtained are in good agreement with the results obtained by the Monte Carlo simulations.

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.
