Title: Nagoya University Photo-Science Nanofactory Project

Abstract

Nagoya University has a project to construct a new synchrotron light facility, called Photo-Science Nanofactory, to develop a wide range research on basic science, industrial applications, life science and environmental engineering in collaboration with universities, research institutes and industries. The key equipment of the facility is a compact electron storage ring, ''Nagoya University Small Synchrotron Radiation facility (NSSR),'' which is able to supply hard x-rays. The plan of the specifications is as following. The energy of the stored electron beam is 1.2 GeV. The circumference is 62.4 m. Natural emittance is about 60 nmrad. The configuration of the storage ring is considered based on the Triple Bend Achromat with twelve bending magnets. Eight of them are normal conducting magnets. Four of them are 5T superconducting magnets (super-bends). The bending angle is 12 degrees and two or three hard x-ray beam lines can be constructed for each super-bend. The number of beam lines from normal conducting bending magnets is more than 16. In addition, we will install two undulators in straight sections. The electron beam is injected from a booster synchrotron with the energy of 1.2 GeV as full energy injection. A 50 MeV linac is used as an injector tomore » the booster synchrotron. The top-up operation is also planned.« less

  • To investigate the feasibility of applying a portable neutron generator for neutron radiography (NR), an underwater NR facility was designed and constructed in the water pool in a hot laboratory. By using the system, including neutron converters and films, it was possible to obtain NR images withing about 10 min. Various characteristic tests and photography by both emulsion and track-etch methods were carried out for various objects containing irradiated nuclear fuel samples. Some combinations of the converter and x-ray films, such as gadolinium foil/Type AA, were found to be suitable for NR in this case, but the much more sensitivemore » converter NE426 was able to reduce the exposure time considerably. The strongly irradiated nuclear fuel samples were successfully photographed by CA8015 track-etch films with a /sup 10/BN converter.« less
  • Research activities carried out in the nuclear engineering and crystalline materials science departments, Nagoya University, are described. There have also been other fusion technology research activities, such as radiation damage of materials by 14-MeV deuterium-tritium (D-T) fusion neutrons and behavior of environmental tritium.
  • We have developed a 200 keV polarized electron source for generating high bunch charge of >3.2 nC within approx1 ns bunch duration for the International Linear Collider (ILC) and >7.7 pC within 30 ps bunch duration for a basic source study of an Energy Recovery Linac (ERL). In order to improve gun operation voltage and an operational lifetime, we have employed new electrode materials of molybdenum and titanium to eliminate field emission dark current, and restructured a beam transport vacuum systems. As a beam generation for the ERL, bunch charge of up to 28 pC was generated by irradiating withmore » sliced laser pulse trains. The details are described in this report.« less
  • Measurements of ion and electron temperatures have been performed in detaching helium--hydrogen plasmas in a linear divertor simulator experiment using spectroscopy, a Langmuir probe, and an omegatron mass spectrometer. Detachment in these plasmas is characterized by a significant ({approx}20 x) reduction in the central plasma flux at the target plate as the target region neutral pressure is increased from 2 to 12 mTorr. The data indicate that partially detached gas-target plasmas consist of a hot (T{sub e}{approx}5 eV) core region along the axis of the plasma column, surrounded by a cold (T{sub e}{approx}0.1 eV) halo region of recombining plasma. Atmore » T{sub e}=5 eV, plasma recombination is negligible compared with ionization; these experiments therefore provide evidence that detachment is primarily caused by radial transport and by a gradual drop in the ionization source as the temperature of the core region drops below 5 eV.« less
