RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science Infrastructure Management Team

Team Leader: Masanori Kidera (D.sci.)

Research Summary

Masanori, Kidera, (D.Sci.)

Our team is in charge of the design, operation, and maintenance of the large-scale infrastructure for the entire RI Beam Factory (RIBF), including cooling water, air conditioning, and electrical equipment, as well as the research and development of their advanced management. In order to operate the RIBF efficiently, it is very important to ensure the sound operation of these infrastructures that lead to the stable functioning of various devices. Another important mission is to coordinate the scheduling of major construction and repair work related to the RIBF so that beamtime runs smoothly.
