Under the MEXT subsidy on research for improving nuclear security related development, we designed the Delayed Gamma-ray Californium Test (DGCT) instrument. From He-3 count-rate experiments performed in collaboration with the European Commission Joint Research Centre, we show the effective neutron flux entering the sample space. Further, we show delayed gamma-ray spectra of both U and Pu samples as well as a comparison to the background from Cf activation of the environment. Finally, we make comparisons to earlier spectra obtained using PUNITA, including relative fission capability, spectral signature, and mass correlations.

2011年の東京電力ホールディングス福島第一原子力発電所の事故以来、世界各地で廃止措置措置に入る原子力施設が増加している。これらの原子力施設では、放射性物質の適切な管理が要求されている。そこで、ガンマ線スペクトル測定技術は、放射性物質の重要な情報を得ることができるため、有益なツールである。さらに、放射性物質の空間情報も重要であるため、ガンマ線イメージングについて求められている。しかしながら、これらの施設には、強度放射線場が広がるため、ガンマ線スペクトル測定やガンマ線イメージングが困難になる。そのため、寸法が5mm $$times$$ 5mm $$times$$ 5mmの小さなCeBr$$_3$$シンチレーター4個で分割した$$gamma$$線スペクトロメーターを開発した。上記の4個のシンチレーターは、強度放射場に特化したマルチアノード光電子増倍管と組合わせた。私たちは、$$^{137}$$Csと$$^{60}$$Coの放射線場で照射試験を実施した。$$^{137}$$Cs照射場の線量率1375mSv/hにおいて、相対エネルギー分解能が、それぞれのチャンネルで、9.2$$pm$$0.05%, 8.0$$pm$$0.08%, 8.0$$pm$$0.03%, 9.0 $$pm$$0.04%であった。

Under the MEXT subsidy to strengthen nuclear security related research, the ISCN is developing delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy (DGS) for nuclear safeguards. Here we present results from experiments using the PUNITA instrument in collaboration with JRC-Ispra to evaluate the gamma-ray spectral dependence on interrogation time patterns and number of cycles. Specifically, we investigated the observable gamma rays useful to quantify the $$^{239}$$Pu and $$^{235}$$U contributions. Of the time patterns tested in this study, we determined that irradiating the sample for 60-$$s$$ followed by a gamma-ray measurement of 60-$$s$$ was the best for a comparable one-hour total interrogation time.

It is important to visualize radioactive substances' position and distribution and estimate their radioactivity levels to reduce the exposure dose of workers in radioactive areas (such as decommissioning worksites of nuclear power stations) and improve nuclear security functions. To visualize the radioactive substance's three-dimensional (3D) location, a directional radiation detector with a cylindrical shield on a simple single-pixel gamma-ray detector was applied to the structure from motion (SfM) technology using an ordinary digital camera. Verification was performed by a system that combines SfM with a CdTe sensor probe having narrow directivity. $$^{241}$$Am radiation source's position was visualized by drawing the radiation source's image acquired by the gamma-ray detector on the work area 3D model reconstructed through SfM. Furthermore, as SfM is a simultaneous localization and mapping technology, the system measures the gamma rays while measuring the gamma-ray detector's dynamic position and posture information. The measurements can be acquired while the gamma-ray detector is freely moving in the work area. These methods visualized the radiation source's position and quantitatively estimated the radiation source's radioactivity.

Compton-to-peak analysis is a method for selecting suitable coefficients to convert count rates measured with in situ gamma ray spectrometry to radioactivity concentrations of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs in the environment. The Compton-to-peak method is based on the count rate ratio of the spectral regions containing Compton scattered gamma rays to that with the primary $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs photopeaks. This is known as the Compton-to-peak ratio (RCP). RCP changes as a function of the vertical distribution of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground. Inferring this distribution enables the selection of appropriate count rate to activity concentration conversion coefficients. In this study, the PHITS Monte Carlo radiation transport code was used to simulate the dependency of RCP on different vertical distributions of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground. A model was created of a LaBr$$_3$$(Ce) detector used in drone helicopter aerial surveys in Fukushima Prefecture. The model was verified by comparing simulated gamma ray spectra to measurements from test sources. Simulations were performed for the infinite half-space geometry to calculate the dependency of RCP on the mass depth distribution (exponential or uniform) of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground, and on the altitude of the detector above the ground. The calculations suggest that the sensitivity of the Compton-to-peak method is greatest for the initial period following nuclear fallout when $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs are located close to the ground surface, and for aerial surveys conducted at low altitudes. This is because the relative differences calculated between RCP with respect to changes in the mass depth distribution were largest for these two cases. Data on the measurement height above and on the $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs activity ratio is necessary for applying the Compton-to-peak method to determine the distribution and radioactivity concentration of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs in the ground.

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.

Determination of fuel debris location and distribution inside primary containment vessel of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station is important to decide further decommissioning step and strategy. We calculate neutron flux produced from fuel debris and secondary particles photon resulted from neutron reaction with nuclides inside fuel debris, including direct photon emission from FPs in fuel debris. Neutron and gamma characteristics resulted from calculation could be use as basis for determination suitable spectrometer system or detector for searching, localizing and treatment of fuel debris.

Delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy is an active-NDA technique used to determine the composition of HRNM samples by peak-ratio comparison of GRs above 3-MeV from the short-lived fission products. Filtering out the passive GRs from long-lived FPs reduces the DGS signal, so thermal neutrons are used to induce more fission events from fissile nuclides. We are developing a compact system to moderate $$sim$$ 2-MeV neutrons that are easier to moderate than 14-MeV neutrons from DT generators. This work describes the ideal moderator optimization for a $$^{252}$$Cf source that results in $$25.9times10^{-4}$$ cm$$^{-2}$$ $$n_{source}^{-1}$$ passing through the sample space with $$geq$$ 70% of those below 1-eV. Practical modifications resulted in $$leq$$ 20% reductions compared to the optimized design. Evaluations of DGS signals and backgrounds conclude that only a 21-MBq $$^{252}$$Cf source is required.

Rodriguez, D.; Rossi, F.; 瀬谷 道夫; 小泉 光生

Proceedings of 2017 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (NSS/MIC 2017) (Internet), 3 Pages, 2018/11

The JAEA and EC JRC are collaborating to improve the ability to quantify the uranium and plutonium content of highly radioactive and mixed nuclear material for nuclear safeguards verification. A separate program focuses on improving the capability to measure, analyze, and predict the delayed gamma-ray spectrum used to determine the nuclide ratios within a sample. Measurements performed at the JRC-Ispra are used to correlate the observed DGs to the composition that are then used to calibrate a DG Monte Carlo. The MC has the ability to predict expected DGs, provide a sensitivity analysis to optimize future measurements, and can be used to analyze a spectrum using an inverse MC technique. Analyzing MC with this IMC analysis provides a way to determine systematic uncertainty as well as statistical uncertainty when multiple measurements are not feasible. This work will describe the efforts to develop the DGSMC and how it will be utilized for current and future applications.

DGS has great potential for HRNM, since it determines fissile nuclide compositions by correlating the observed DG spectrum to the unique FY of the individual nuclides. Experiments were performed with LRNM using both PUNITA and a JAEA designed Cf-shuffler tested in PERLA. The data was analyzed using an inverse MC method that both determines DG peak intensity correlations and provides an evaluation of the uncertainty of the measurements. The results were used to verify DG signatures for varying fissile compositions, total fissile content, and DGS interrogation timing patterns. Future development will focus on measuring HRNM and designing a compact system by evaluating different neutron sources, moderating materials, and detection capabilities. This presentation summarizes the JAEA/JRC DGS program to date and the future direction of this collaborative work performed using the MEXT subsidy for the promotion of strengthening nuclear security.
