RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science Industrial Application Research Team

Team Leader: Atsushi Yoshida (D.Sc.)

Research Summary

Atsushi  Yoshida(D.Sc.)

The industrial cooperation team manages industrial applications of the accelerator facility and its related technologies.
As an application of heavy-ion beams, irradiation tests for semi-conductors of space use have been carried out by private companies.
We promote a development of a wear analysis technique using RI-beam, also. A very intense RI beams of 7Be (T1/2=52 days) at 4.1 MeV/u and 22Na (T1/2=2.6 years) at 3.7 MeV/u can be provided for that purpose.
The team also handles fee-based distribution of radioisotopes of Zn-65, Sr-85, Y-88 and Cd-109 produced at the AVF cyclotron by RI application team under a contract between Japan Radioisotope Association and RIKEN.
