For aqueous-solution-based elemental analysis, we used a thin liquid sheet (μm-scale thickness) in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy with nanosecond laser pulses. Laser-induced plasma is emitted by focusing a pulsed Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm) on a 5- to 80-μm-thick liquid sheet in air. To optimize the conditions for detecting elements, we studied how the(More)
Oxygen isotopic selectivity on infrared multiphoton dissociation of 2,3-dihydropyran has been studied by the examination of the effects of excitation frequency, laser fluence, and gas pressure on the dissociation probability of 2,3-dihydropyran and isotopic composition of products. Oxygen-18 was enriched in a dissociation product: 2-propenal. The enrichment(More)
Safety evaluation of a radioactive waste repository requires credible activity estimates confirmed by actual measurements. A long-lived radionuclide, 107Pd, which can be found in radioactive wastes, is one of the difficult-to-measure nuclides and results in a deficit in experimentally determined contents. In this study, a precipitation-based separation(More)
For the analysis of trace amounts of hazardous organic compounds, we developed a new ion detection system for supersonic jet resonance-enhanced multiphoton laser ionization mass spectrometry. High sensitivity and selectivity have been achieved by combining a proto-type Daly detector, a newly designed conical ion lens, and a potential switch that can perform(More)
The structures of the naphthalene monomer and dimer were investigated with performing vibrational analysis. The MP2 optimization showed that the naphthalene monomer has a nonplanar geometry in the 6-31G, 6-31G*, 6-31+G*, and 6-311G basis sets, while it has a planar geometry in the 6-31G*(0.25) and Dunning's correlation consistent basis sets. The MP2/cc-pVDZ(More)
The structures of the complex of 2,2'-(methylimino)bis(N,N-dioctylacetamide) (MIDOA) with M(VII)O(4)(-) (M = Re and Tc), which were prepared by liquid-liquid solvent extraction, were investigated by using (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS), and infrared (IR) spectroscopy. The (1)H NMR spectra of the(More)
Prior to the frequency doubling of a laser diode through a ring resonator, reflection loss on the surface of a novel organic second-order nonlinear optical crystal, 8-(4'-acetylphenyl)-1,4-dioxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decane (APDA), was decreased. An optically flat crystal surface with a flatness of λ/10 (λ = 633 nm) and surface roughness of 1.5 nm rms was obtained(More)
An oxygen electrode method for determining residual hydrogen peroxide in foods has been further improved. Pretreatment, which includes extraction and neutralization, is done in a hydrogen peroxide extraction apparatus with nitrogen gas bubbling. The hydrogen peroxide concentration of the sample is corrected by subtracting the sample blank value, obtained(More)
The structure of a jet-cooled 1-naphthol (1-NpOH) dimer was investigated by using resonant-enhanced two-photon ionization (R2PI) and ion-detected infrared (IR) dip spectroscopy. A geometrical optimization and a frequency calculation in (1-NpOH)2 were also performed at the MP2/cc-pVDZ level. Stable isomers in the MP2/cc-pVDZ calculation were classified into(More)
The desorption behavior of tritium from the glass ampoule which originally contained 37 GBq of carrier free tritium gas was studied by etching the surface with a diluted hydrofluoric acid solution or by heating at the constant rate up to 800 degrees C. The total amount of tritium sorbed on the inner surface of the ampoule was found to be 3.9 +/- 0.7 GBq.(More)
