Structural analysis of high temperature melts

Research to study relations between thermophysical properties and atomic structure on high temperature melt have been conducted using electrostatic levitation furnaces combined with high energy light sources.

【 Electrostatic levitator (ESL) 】+【 X ray 】

Since 2004, levitation experiments using an electrostatic levitator have been conducted in Spring-8.

  • BL04B02

    Beam line “BL04B02” has been mainly used for the development of experiment system. ( p1 / 8 )

  • heating laser

    100 W CO2 was carried from Tsukuba and temporarily installed in the beam line. Currently, a heating laser provided by Spring-8 is available. ( p2 / 8 )

  • vacuum chamber

    A electrostatic levitator (vacuum chamber) installed in the beam line ( p3 / 8 )

  • maintenance

    The electrostatic levitator is disassembled for maintenance. ( p4 / 8 )

  • setup1

    Experiment setup is completed ( ESL Chamber and X-ray detector) ( p5 / 8 )

  • setup2

    Experiment setup is completed. ( p6 / 8 )

  • setup3

    Experiment setup is completed. ( p7 / 8 )

  • •monitoring

    During levitation experiment, a levitated sample is monitored by a camera. ( p8 / 8 )


【 ESL 】+【neutron】

Around JFY 2000 to 2002, An ESL was combined with a neutron source at JRR-3M (JAEA: Japan Atomic Energy Agency)
