理化学研究所のRI Beam Factory(RIBF)にて中性子過剰核Neの低励起状態を1陽子あるいは2陽子ノックアウト反応によって生成し、そこからの脱励起ガンマ線の測定によって、エネルギー準位を構築した。1410(15)keVのガンマ線を初めて測定し、反応断面積の系統性などからからへの遷移に対応すると提案した。既に知られている準位を用いて、との励起エネルギー比2.99(6)が得られた。この値は、回転スペクトルの値に近く、Neは強く変形していることがわかった。この実験結果は、大規模殻模型計算の結果とよく一致した。

Uranium ferromagnetic superconductors UGe, URhGe and UCoGe have attracted much attention from both theoretical and experimental sides since the same 5 electrons underlie carry both the ferromagnetism and superconductivity. Recently, we have analysed 69 uranium, 7 neptunium, and 4 plutonium ferromagnets with spin fluctuation theory originally developed for researches on itinerant ferromagnets in the 3 transition metals and their intermetallics. The applicability of the spin fluctuation theory to the actinide 5 system has been confirmed and the itinerant character of the 5f electrons is suggested in the actinide ferromagnets. In this conference, two results will be shown. One is the results of the analyses on 80 actinide ferromagnets and the other is the pressure dependence of the spin fluctuation parameters in UGe.

Online gas-solid adsorption studies with single atom quantities of Hg, Tl, and Pb on SiO and Au surfaces were carried out using short-lived radioisotopes with half-lives in the range of 4-49 s. This is a model study to measure adsorption enthalpies of superheavy elements Cn, Nh, and Fl. The short-lived isotopes were produced and separated by the gas-filled recoil separator TASCA at GSI. The products were stopped in He gas, and flushed into gas chromatography columns made of Si detectors whose surfaces were covered by SiO or Au. The short-lived Tl and Pb were successfully measured by the Si detectors with the SiO surface at room temperature. On the other hand, the Hg did not adsorb on the SiO surface, but adsorbed on the Au surface. The results demonstrated that the adsorption properties of short-lived Hg, Tl, and Pb could be studied with this setup, and that this method is applicable to the experiment for Cn, Nh, and Fl.

We show that the electric field (EF) can control the magnetic domain wall (DW) velocity in a Pt/Co/Pd asymmetric structure. With the application of a gate voltage, a significant change in DW velocity up to 50 m/s is observed, which is much greater than that observed in previous studies. Moreover, a DW velocity exceeding 100 m/s is clearly modulated. An EF-induced change in the interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) up to several percent is found to be the origin of the velocity modulation. The DMI-mediated velocity change shown here is a fundamentally different mechanism from that caused by EF-induced anisotropy modulation. Our results will pave the way for the electrical manipulation of spin structures and dynamics via DMI control, which can enhance the performance of spintronic devices.

Spin fluctuations are widely believed to play an important role as one of the most possible mechanisms for unconventional high-temperature superconductors. Here, the spin fluctuation in LaFePO is found at high energies such as 30-50 meV with comparable intensity to an optimally doped LaFeAs(O,F).

A cubic system with the cubic crystalline electric field (CEF) state is an ideal system to investigate multipole physics, since it does not have dipole but has higher-order multipoles such as quadrupole and octupole. In addition, superconductivity has been observed in PrTX (T = Ir, Rh, X = Zn; T = Ti, V, X = Al) systems with the CEF ground state. To approach these phenomena theoretically, we consider a model composed of f electrons with the total angular momentum . From this model, we have derived multipole interactions for the systems. In the present study, we investigate superconductivity in the same model. We apply random phase approximation for superconductivity in a multiorbital system to the present model. Then, we have obtained a d-wave spin-singlet state. We will discuss the relevance of the present theory to the PrTX superconductors.

We investigated the application of L-edge XANES spectra to the local structural analysis of lanthanoids in aqueous solution, iron hydroxide, manganese dioxide, and calcium carbonate. For each lanthanoid, the full width at half maximum (FWHM) values of lanthanoid compounds roughly decreased with increasing coordination numbers. However, they did not strictly reflect the local coordination sphere of the lanthanoid complex, but were rather sensitive to their chemical forms. The relationship between the magnitude of the FWHM values was determined by the crystal field splitting or degeneracy of 5d orbitals. The systematic variation of FWHM can be explained by the ligand strength of the ligand molecules (-HO, -O, -OH, -CO, -Cl, and -O) that cause the crystal field splitting. Therefore, the FWHM values of L-edge XANES of lanthanoid compounds may be more useful in speciation analysis rather than structural analysis such as EXAFS.

We overview the recent theoretical development on spin-transfer torque in antiferromagnetic nanostructures and related subjects. As antiferromagnetic materials are generating more attention lately due to their potential to play pivotal roles in spintronics applications, demands are rising for reliable methods to control and detect antiferromagnetic textures and their dynamics. While antiferromagnets are largely insensitive to external magnetic fields in general, electrical means are proving to be capable of offering promising ways to access the antiferromagnetic dynamics. We discuss in this article the possibility of manipulation and observation of dynamical antiferromagnetic textures by electrical current and voltage.

We have developed a new setup to measure prompt fission -ray spectra in neutron induced fission up to energies sufficient to reveal the structure associated with giant dipole resonances of fission fragments. The setup consists of multi-wire proportional counters, to detect both fission fragments in coincidence, and two large volume (101.6 mm in diameter and 127.0 mm in length) LaBr(Ce) scintillators, to measure the -rays. The setup was used to obtain the prompt fission -ray spectrum for thermal neutron induced fission of U at the PF1B cold-neutron beam facility of the Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble, France. We have successfully measured the -ray spectrum up to energies of about 20 MeV, what extends the currently known -ray spectrum limit to higher energies by approximately a factor of two.

A quark model, which reproduces the ground-state mesons and baryons, i.e., the threshold energies, is applied to the configurations, where is a light quark and the charmed quark. In the calculation, several open channels are explicitly included such as , , , etc. To distinguish genuine resonances and estimate their width, we employ Gaussian Expansion Method supplemented by the real scalingmethod (stabilization). No resonance is found at the energies of the and pentaquarks. On the other hand, there is a sharp resonant state at 4690 MeV with state and another one at 4920 MeV with state, which have a compact structure.

Recent studies of the chemical separation and characterization experiments of the first three transactinide elements, rutherfordium (Rf), dubnium (Db) and seaborgium (Sg), conducted atom-at-a-time in liquid phases, are reviewed. A short description on experimental techniques based on partition methods, specifically automated rapid chemical separation systems, as well as on assessment of role of relativistic effects is also given. Perspectives for liquid phase chemistry experiments on heavier elements are briefly discussed.

The distribution constants of 4-benzoyl-3-phenyl-5-isoxazolone (HPBI) and deprotonated one (PBI) between hydrophobic ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide ([CCim][TfN]) and aqueous phases were determined, together with the acid-dissociation constant of HPBI. The solvent extraction of three selected lanthanoid ions (La, Eu, and Lu) with HPBI from aqueous nitrate phase into [CCim][TfN] has been investigated. Application of the ionic liquid as the extracting phase greatly enhanced the extraction performance of HPBI for lanthanoid ions compared with that in the chloroform system. The composition of the extracted species was established to be anionic tetrakis entities, Ln(PBI), for light, middle, and heavy lanthanoid ions in an ionic environment.

To specify preferential occupation sites of Co substituents and to clarify charge and spin states of Co ions in (La, Co)-cosubstituted hexagonal magnetoplumbite-type (M-type) Sr ferrite, Fe and Co nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra are measured under zero and external magnetic fields using powdered and single crystalline specimens. To a considerable degree, the charge compensation between La and Co works in the equal (La, Co)-codoped case, where more than half of the Co ions are considered to be present in the minority spin sites at the center of the oxygen tetrahedra, with the = 3/2 state carrying a small orbital moment owing to spin-orbit interaction. The remaining small number of high-spin Co ( = 3/2, = 1) ions with unquenched orbital moments would be distributed to the other octahedral , , and sites.

In clustering studies, it is very important to probe the cluster amplitude at nuclear surface since spectroscopic factor is not necessarily a direct measure of the clustering. We consider Ne(,)O and Sn(,)Cd at 100 - 400 MeV within the distorted wave impulse approximation (DWIA) framework. We introduce a which shows how the reaction amplitude in the nuclear interior is suppressed and defines the probed region of the cluster wave function. It is clearly shown by means of the masking function that thanks to the absorption of distorting potentials, the knockout reaction probes the cluster amplitude in the nuclear surface region, which is the direct measure of well-developed cluster states.

We report direct observation of gyromagnetic reversal, which is the sign change of gyromagnetic ratio in a ferrimagnet HoFeO, by using the Barnett effect measurement technique at low temperatures. The Barnett effect is a phenomenon in which magnetization is induced by mechanical rotation through the coupling between rotation and total angular momentum of electrons. The magnetization of HoFeO induced by mechanical rotation disappears at 135 K and 240 K. The temperatures correspond to the magnetization compensation temperature and the angular momentum compensation temperature , respectively. Between and , the magnetization flips over to be parallel against the angular momentum due to the sign change of gyromagnetic ratio. This study provides an unprecedented technique to explore the gyromagnetic properties.
