Shanghai Laser Electron Gamma Source (SLEGS) is a powerful gamma source to provide MeV gamma-ray beams for nuclear science and technology. It is developed as one of the sixteen beamline stations in Phase II Project of the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF). The slant-scattering mode is for the first time systematically employed in the laser Compton scattering (LCS) at SLEGS to produce energy-tunable quasi-monoenergetic gamma-ray beams.  SLEGS officially completed its commissioning from July to December 2021. Gamma-rays in energy range of 0.25 - 21.7 MeV with the flux of 2.1 × 104 - 1.2 × 107 photons/s and the energy spread of  2 – 15 % are produced during the test. This paper reports results of the commissioning of the SLEGS beamline.

Doped elements in alloys significantly impact their performance. Conventional methods usually sputter the surface material of the sample, or their performance is limited to the surface of alloys owing to their poor penetration ability. The X-ray K-edge subtraction (KES) method exhibits great potential for the nondestructive in situ detection of element contents in alloys. However, the signal of doped elements usually deteriorates because of the strong absorption of the principal component and scattering of crystal grains. This in turn prevents the extensive application of X-ray KES imaging to alloys. In this study, methods were developed to calibrate the linearity between the grayscale of the KES image and element content. The methods were aimed at the sensitive analysis of elements in alloys. Furthermore, experiments with phantoms and alloys demonstrated that, after elaborate calibration, X-ray KES imaging is capable of nondestructive and sensitive analysis of doped elements in alloys.

The advantages of once-through molten salt reactors include readily available fuel, low nuclear proliferation risk, and low technical difficulty. It is potentially the most easily commercialized fuel cycle mode for molten salt reactors. However, there are some problems in the parameter selection of once-through molten salt reactors, and the relevant burnup optimization work requires further analysis. This study examined a once-through graphite moderated molten salt reactor using enriched uranium and thorium. The fuel volume fraction (VF), initial heavy nuclei concentration (HN0), feeding uranium enrichment (EFU), volume of the reactor core, and fuel type were changed to obtain the optimal conditions for burnup. We found an optimal region for VF and HN0 in each scheme, and the location and size of the optimal region changed with the degree of EFU, core volume, and fuel type. The recommended core schemes provide a reference for the core design of a once-through molten salt reactor.
