Overview of the JAEA and QST Advanced Characterization Nanotechnology Platforms

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and the National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST), established in April 2016, have two contract beamlines each at SPring-8, and are developing advanced technologies for synchrotron use. JAEA and QST are entrusted with the MEXT Nanotechnology Platform Program, and participate in the Advanced Characterization Nanotechnology Platform Project. JAEA and QST jointly promote the use of apparatuses for structure and electronic states analyses by researchers of universities, companies, and public research organizations. Comprehensive analyses of crystal structures, their local structures, electronic states, and chemical reactions by using scattering, diffraction and absorption of synchrotron radiation are supported.
