The R&D group, consisting of two teams, develops elemental technology of high-power accelerators and high-power targets, aiming at future applications to nuclear transmutations of long-lived fission product into short-lived nuclides. The research subjects are superconducting rf cavities for low-velocity ions, design of high-power accelerators, high-power target systems and related technologies.
