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. The sponsor of the Project was moved from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology to JAEA since the newly adopted proposals in FY2018. On this occasion, JAEA constructed a new research system where JAEA-academia collaboration is reinforced and medium-to-long term research/development and human resource development contributing to the decommissioning are stably and consecutively implemented. Among the adopted proposals in FY2018, this report summarizes the research results of the "Research and Development of Radiation-resistant Sensor for Fuel Debris by Integrating Advanced Measurement Technologies". The present study aims to in-situ measure and analyze the distribution status and criticality of flooded fuel debris. For this purpose, we construct a neutron measurement system by developing compact diamond neutron sensor (200 $$mu$$m $$times$$ 510 $$mu$$m thickness) and integrated circuit whose radiation resistance was improved by circuit design. Along with the multi-phased array sonar and the acoustic sub-bottom profiling (SBP) system, the neutron measurement system will be installed in the ROV (developed by Japan-UK collaboration) and its demonstration tests will be conducted in a PCV mock-up water tank.

A Proposal of secure non-destructive detection system of nuclear materials in heavily shielded objects and interior investigation system

Seya, Michio; Hajima, Ryoichi*; Kureta, Masatoshi

Proceedings of INMM 58th Annual Meeting (Internet), 10 Pages, 2017/07

Large size freight cargo containers are the most vulnerable items from nuclear security points of view because of their large volume and weight of cargo inside for hiding heavily shielded objects. For strengthening nuclear security, secure detection of NMs in heavily shielded objects, and safe handling (dismantlement) of detected (suspicious) objects, are essential. These require secure detection of NMs, inspection of detailed interior structures of detected objects, rough characterization of NMs (for nuclear bomb or RDD etc.) and confirmation of existence of explosives etc. By using information obtained by these inspections, safe dismantlement of objects is possible. In this paper, we propose a combination of X-ray scanning system with NRF-based NDD system using monochromatic $$gamma$$-ray beam for a secure detection and interior inspections. We also we propose active neutron NDA system using a DT source for interior inspection of NM part.

Introduction to development of advanced safeguards and security NDA technologies by JAEA-ISCN

Seya, Michio; Kureta, Masatoshi; Soyama, Kazuhiko; Nakamura, Hironobu; Harada, Hideo; Hajima, Ryoichi

Proceedings of INMM 55th Annual Meeting (Internet), 10 Pages, 2014/07

JAEA has been implementing development programs of basic technologies of the following advanced NDA (non-destructive assay) of nuclear material (NM) for nuclear safeguards and security. (1) Alternative to $$^{3}$$He neutron detection using ZnS/B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ ceramic scintillator, (2) NRD (neutron resonance densitometry) using NRTA (neutron resonance transmission analysis) and NRCA (neutron resonance capture analysis), (3) NRF (nuclear resonance fluorescence)-NDA using laser Compton scattered (LCS) $$gamma$$-rays (intense mono-energetic $$gamma$$-rays). The development program (1) is for NDA systems that use ZnS/B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ ceramic scintillator as alternative neutron detector to $$^{3}$$He for coming shortage of its supply. The program (2) is for a NDA system of isotopic composition measurement (non-destructive mass spectroscopy) in targets such as particle-like melted fuel debris using NRTA and NRCA. The program (3) is for NDA systems using a specific NRF reaction of certain Pu/U isotope caused by mono-energetic LCS $$gamma$$-ray with energy tuned to the specific excited state of the isotope. This paper introduces above three programs.

Neutron detection by superconducting tunnel junctions on a Li$$_{2}$$B$$_{4}$$O$$_{7}$$ single-crystal absorber

Nakamura, Tatsuya; Katagiri, Masaki; Ukibe, Masahiro*; Ikeuchi, Takashi*; Okubo, Masataka*

Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, 520(1-3), p.67 - 69, 2004/03

 Times Cited Count:26 Percentile:83.83(Instruments & Instrumentation)

We succeeded in detecting neutrons using superconducting tunnel junctions (STJs) fabricated on a single crystal of Li$$_{2}$$B$$_{4}$$O$$_{7}$$. Neutrons are captured in the crystal by the nuclear reactions $$^{6}$$Li + n $$rightarrow$$ T+ $$alpha$$ + 4.78 MeV and $$^{10}$$B + n $$rightarrow$$ $$^{7}$$Li + $$alpha$$ + 2.3 MeV, and generated phonons propagate in the absorber and are measured by the STJs. We selected a single crystal of Li$$_{2}$$B$$_{4}$$O$$_{7}$$ as the absorber material because of properties such as the large neutron cross-section of $$^{6}$$Li and $$^{10}$$B, low $$gamma$$-ray sensitivity, short particle range in the substrate, and fast phonon velocity. Series-connected or multiple STJs on the crystal would enable two-dimensional neutron imaging with high detection efficiency, low gamma-ray background, and a high spatial resolution of a few microns. We demonstrate neutron detection by the STJs and show their X-ray response and neutron detection. The correlation in pulse heights between two junctions located 1.3mm apart clearly indicates the possibility of neutron imaging.

Measurements of power profile in TRACY supercritical experiment by detecting epithermal neutrons

Nakajima, Ken; Yanagisawa, Hiroshi; Miyoshi, Yoshinori

JAERI-Tech 2003-028, 31 Pages, 2003/03

JAERI-Tech-2003-028.pdf:1.38MB

We have tried to measure the power profile in the TRACY supercritical experiment with high accuracy by detecting epithermal neutrons. In order to measure the epithermal neutrons, a cadmium covered $$^{235}$$U fission chamber was used, and polyethylene, a neutron moderator, was set inside the cadmium to enhance the neutron detection efficiency. In addition, a lead shield was used to reduce the noise current due to gamma-rays. The measured results were compared with the ones using a thermal neutron detector, and it was found that the time delay effect in the thermal neutron detection, which was caused by the flight time of neutrons to reach the detector, distorted the power profile and reduced its peak value. The reduction ratio of peak power was about 4% for the relatively slow power change with the inserted reactivity of 1.5$, but it became over than 40% for the rapid power change with the reactivity of about 3$.

A SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ storage phosphor for neutron imaging

Sakasai, Kaoru; Katagiri, Masaki; To, Kentaro; Takahashi, Hiroyuki*; Nakazawa, Masaharu*; Kondo, Yasuhiro*

Applied Physics A, 74(Suppl.1), p.S1589 - S1591, 2002/12

 Times Cited Count:30 Percentile:73.12(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)

A phosphor material such as SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ has been investigated for two-dimensional imaging for pulsed-neutron source. The authors found this phosphor itself shows photostimulated luminescence (PSL) by illumination of 635 nm laser light after neutron irradiation without adding any neutron sensitive materials such as Gd. The PSL intensity per neutron flux was proportional to E$$^{-0.5}$$, where E is neutron energy. The neutron sensitivity was increased by using enriched boron instead of natural boron. The S$$_{gamma}$$/S$$_{n}$$ ratio of this phosphor using enriched boron was better than that of a commercially available imaging plate, where S$$_{gamma}$$ and S$$_{n}$$ are gamma and neutron sensitivities, respectively.
