The Nanotechnology Platform Japan project was completed in FY2021. A new project, the Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology in Japan (ARIM) began in 2021. Non-proprietary research will be assisted as part of the new ARIM project from FY2022. Proprietary research will be assisted under the Shared-Use Program in QST as usual. In addition to sharing equipment, sharing of experimental data is important in the ARIM project. Please feel free to contact QST about the ARIM project. Usage fees will be revised in April 2022.

Overview of the Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology in QST

The National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology (QST), established in April 2016, have two contract beamlines at SPring-8, and are developing advanced technologies for synchrotron use. QST was entrusted with the MEXT Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology in Japan (ARIM) in 2021. Since then QST has participated as a spoke. QST promotes the use of apparatuses for structure and electronic states analyses by researchers from universities, companies, and public research organizations. Specifically, comprehensive analyses of crystal structures, their local structures, electronic states, and surface crystal growth by scattering, diffraction, and absorption of synchrotron radiation are supported.

The ARIM project was started in 2021 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The Nanotechnology Platform Japan project implemented from 2012 to 2021 promoted shared use of experimental equipment (sharing of cutting-edge apparatuses and research support). Sharing of data is positioned as a cornerstone of the ARIM project in addition to sharing of apparatuses.

The ARIM project, in which 25 universities and research organizations in Japan participate, is responsible for research in seven important technology regions. QST participates in the region of materials for innovative functions by quantum/electronic control. Each region consists of a hub and several spokes. While making use of the research support basis developed in the Nanotechnology Platform Japan project, the ARIM project adds data sharing and utilization as a new support field. These new initiatives will be implemented in the 10 years from FY2021.
