RIKEN SPring-8 Center

Control System and Information Technology Group

Group Director: Shunji Goto (D.Eng.)
Shunji  Goto(D.Eng.)

This group designed and constructed the control systems for an 8GeV C-band linear accelerator and insertion device beam lines of SACLA, XFEL facility in Harima. The group works on the data acquisition system of user experiments and data analysis system with supercomputer as well.The group continuously researches modern technologies of information and electronics in order to improve the control performance of the system.
