The J-PARC 3 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) delivers a 1-MW, high-intensity beam to the following facilities. In such high-intensity accelerator, the operational beam intensity is limited to keep the exposure to the workers by the residual dose within acceptable tolerances. Therefore we continue to commission the accelerator system to reduce the beam loss. In order to achieve further high-intensity operation, the J-PARC accelerator system was drastically upgraded (Increment of the injection energy of RCS and peak current of Linac) over the past two years. After the upgrade, the beam loss was decreased by the commissioning. The output power was increased; nevertheless the residual doses were kept same level or decreased. Since we replaced the broken collimator which was higher activated, we kept the exposure to the workers within acceptable level.

Large quantities of radioactive materials were released into the environment as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident. Many inhabitants residing in the affected areas are now exposed to radiation in their daily lives. In an attempt to manage this radiation dose, an additional radiation dose of 1 mSv/y was adopted as a long-term dosimetric target. An activity level reading of 0.23 $$mu$$Sv/h was then determined as a guidance value to achieve the target by implementing decontamination measures. The objectives of this study are to assess the effects of decontamination based on this guidance value and to predict any possible future problems with the decontamination strategy. Using a probabilistic approach, we assessed the annual effective dose of indoor workers, outdoor workers, and pensioners in the Fukushima Prefecture. Our probabilistic model considers the variabilities in behavioral patterns and Cs-137 surface-activity levels. Five years after the initial contamination, the 95th percentiles of indoor workers and pensioners in 53 of the 59 municipalities were found to receive annual effective doses of below 1 mSv/y (0.026-0.73 mSv/y). However, for outdoor workers in 25 municipalities, the annual doses were over 1 mSv/y (1.0-35 mSv/y). Therefore, the guidance value is effective for indoor workers and pensioners; to determine whether additional countermeasures for outdoor workers should be implemented, a detailed assessment that uses more realistic assumptions is required.
