Council for the Project of Synchrotron Light in Tohoku, Japan
Council for the Project of Synchrotron Light in Tohoku, Japan
The council aims to establish a new synchrotron facility for innovations in the fields of industry and academia. This middle-sized synchrotron facility with 3 GeV energy is highly desirable for Japan to catch up to the world technology frontier and top-level scientific researches. The synchrotron light from the facility will provide various ways to high-tech measurements with nanometer-sized resolution. Such high-tech measurements are indispensable to improve advanced materials, ICT devices and applied/basic sciences for resource developments, disaster measure, environmental conservation, medical technologies and agriculture. The seven national universities in Tohoku area (Akita university, Iwate university, Tohoku university, Hirosaki university, Fukushima university, Miyagi university of education and Yamagata university) are collaborating to actualize the synchrotron facility in Tohoku area.
