RIKEN SPring-8 Center (RSC)

Tetsuya  Ishikawa(D.Eng.) Director: Tetsuya Ishikawa (D.Eng.)

The primary mission of the RIKEN SPring-8 Center (RSC) is to maintain stable and reliable operation of a large synchrotron radiation facility, SPring-8 and an X-ray free electron laser facility, SACLA, and to provide brilliant X-rays for a broad range of researchers from universities, research institutes, and industries.

The RSC develops state-of-the-art technologies for the production and utilization of brilliant X-rays and creates new science through the synergistic use of the two research facilities. The RSC also develops cryo-electron microscopy that is an analysis tool complementary to synchrotron radiation.
