Reduction of the Ordered Magnetic Moment by Quantum Fluctuation in the Antiferromagnetic Spin-5 2 Dimer Compound FeVMoO7

Masashi Hase, James R. Hester, Kirrily C. Rule, Vladimir Yu. Pomjakushin, Akira Matsuo & Koichi Kindo
We investigated the magnetism of FeVMoO7 by performing magnetization, specific heat, electron spin resonance, and neutron diffraction experiments. We observed an antiferromagnetically ordered state below T_N = 10.8 K. We consider that the probable spin model is an interacting antiferromagnetic spin-5/2 dimer model where spin dimers are connected by interdimer interactions. The intradimer interaction was evaluated to be J = 10.5 +- 0.5 K. The magnitude of ordered magnetic moments is 4.00(7) mu_B at 4...

Calculations of Electron Inelastic Mean Free Paths. XI. Data for Liquid Water for Energies from 50 eV to 30 keV

Hiroshi SHINOTSUKA, Bo DA, Shigeo Tanuma, Hideki YOSHIKAWA, Cedric Powell & David R. Penn
We calculated electron inelastic mean free paths (IMFPs) for liquid water from its optical energy-loss function (ELF) for electron energies from 50 eV to 30 keV. These calculations were made with the relativistic full Penn algorithm (FPA) that has been used for previous IMFP and electron stopping-power calculations for many elemental solids. We also calculated IMFPs of water with three additional algorithms: the relativistic single-pole approximation (SPA), the relativistic simplified SPA, and the relativistic extended...

Automatic Experimental Data Collection System Using a Wireless LAN Capable SD Card as an IoT Device

Asahiko Matsuda, Hideki YOSHIKAWA & Toyohiro Chikyow
実験・計算・データ科学を融合させた材料の研究開発を推進するマテリアルズインフォマティクス(MI)が推進されているが、実験データの収集については既存データベースのインポートや出版済み論文のデータマイニングに限られる場合が多い。効果的な MI のためには各種装置から自動的に実験データを収集し、整理して蓄積するシステムを構築することが求められる。しかし実験装置に直接接続されて装置制御・データ記録を行う PC は、情報セキュリティや安定性・互換性の観点から、ネットワークから物理的に分離されて運用される場合が多い。そこで我々は、単体で無線 LAN 接続機能を備える市販 SD カード(東芝メモリ FlashAir)を IoT デバイスとして活用し、装置 PC 自体をネットワークに接続することなく実験データを自動転送するシステムを構築した。同カードはデータの書き込みイベントをきっかけとして任意の Lua スクリプトを実行できる機能を有しており、セキュアな接続でサーバにデータを送信することができる。カードごとに異なるアクセストークンを事前にカード内に保存し、新しくカードに書き込まれたデータをサーバに転送するようにした。データはサーバ上で実験装置ごとに設定されたアルゴリズムにより利用価値の高いデータとなるよう整形され、蓄積される。このシステムを、X線光電子分光装置の測定データやコンビナトリアル成膜装置のマスク制御状態や温度・真空度・膜厚などのセンサーデータを自動的に収集できるように展開した事例を紹介する。この仕組みにより、実験データの効率的な収集と高付加価値化が実現できたことに加え、従来の USB メモリを用いた転送方法で問題となっていた装置PCへのマルウェア感染リスクも低減することができた。 謝辞 本システムは(株)東芝および東芝情報システム(株)のご協力のもと構築された。

At the 2017 Library Fair, Professor Syun Tutiya moderated a session involving all three partners in the CHORUS trial with JST and Chiba University. CHORUS is a not-for-profit, membership organization established in 2015 as a global service to monitor research output and open access. Since 2017 JST has become a CHORUS funder partner and seven institutions including Chiba University are subscribing. This session will explore the potential for a wider JST/CHORUS open-science framework in Japan’s...

Calculations of Mean Escape Depths of Photoelectrons in Elemental Solids Excited by Linearly Polarized X-rays for High-Energy Photoelectron Spectroscopy

Shigeo Tanuma, Hideki YOSHIKAWA, Hiroshi SHINOTSUKA & Ryuichi Ueda
We have calculated mean escape depths (MEDs, D) of photoelectrons from Si, Cu, and Au excited by linearly polarized X-rays over the 50 to 10,000 eV energy range for high -energy photoelectron spectroscopy. These calculations were done with Monte Carlo methods using the values of electron inelastic mean free paths λ that were calculated by the relativistic full Penn algorithm and the Dirac-Hartree-Fock atomic potential for elastic scattering of electrons. In order to know the...

G-Quadruplex Structure Improves the Immunostimulatory Effects of CpG Oligonucleotides

Kazuaki Hoshi, TOMOHIKO YAMAZAKI, Yuuki Sugiyama, Kaori Tsukakoshi, Wakako Tsugawa, Koji Sode & Kazunori Ikebukuro
Single-strand oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) containing unmethylated cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) are recognized by the toll-like receptor 9, a component of the innate immunity. Therefore, they could act as immunotherapeutic agents. Chemically modified CpG ODNs containing a phosphorothioate backbone instead of phosphodiester (PD) were developed as immunotherapeutic agents resistant to nuclease degradation. However, they cause adverse side effects, and so there is a necessity to generate novel CpG ODNs. In the present study, we designed a nuclease-resistant nonmodified CpG...

Masashi Hase, Kirrily C. Rule, James R. Hester, Jaime A. Fernandez-Baca, Takatsugu Masuda & Yukari Matsuo
We carried out neutron powder diffraction experiments on the cluster-based Haldane compound fedotovite K2Cu3O(SO4)3. Weak magnetic reflections caused by a magnetic long-range order appeared below an antiferromagnetic transition temperature TN =3.1 K. We propose a possible magnetic structure that is consistent with the magnetic properties reported in the literature.
