RIKEN SPring-8 Center Advanced Photon Technology Division

Division Director: Masaki Yamamoto (Ph.D.)

Research Summary

Masaki  Yamamoto(Ph.D.)

Advanced Photon Technology Division focuses on advanced-developments for measurement technologies to make most effective use of SPring-8 synchrotron radiation and the X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) SACLA. Moreover, to contribute to create and develop the industrial use of SPring-8 and SACLA, we research, develop, and generalize the advanced use-system by taking advantage of application technologies.
