Greetings from DG Maekawa

 Takasaki Advanced Radiation Research Institute is a core R&D site for quantum beam science and technology, which are the main missions of the National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology (QST) established on April 1, 2016. We have been conducting innovative researches on the accumulated basis of radiation/quantum-beam application research for nearly 60 years at our institute including the predecessor institutes, Takasaki Radiation Chemistry Research Establishment of the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute and Takasaki Advanced Radiation Research Institute of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency.

 As for making the most of our facility, one of the world leading ion-beam irradiation facility, TIARA (Takasaki Ion Accelerators for Advanced Radiation Application), as well as electron-beam and gamma-ray irradiation facilities, we are developing leading-edge technologies in generation and control of quantum-beams, such as ions, electrons, positrons, neutrons, and gamma-rays, as well as highly precise material processing and observation technologies using the quantum-beams. Taking advantage of comprehensive utilization of the quantum beam technologies, we are currently challenging the difficulties for realizing “sustainable development goals (SDGs)” proposed by United Nations and a future ideal society “Society 5.0”. We focus on R&Ds of quantum functional materials for quantum sensors and spin-photonics devices and energy/environment materials for next-generation batteries, contributing to super smart, zero-emission, and circulating societies, as well as quantum beam/RI technologies, such as cancer-therapy, pharmaceutical, and smart agriculture, in medical, agricultural, and biological fields.

 In order to find solutions for important issues in each research field as well as to create innovative outcomes, we are aiming to contribute to the development of science and technology and promotion of industry through the outcomes expected from the above R&Ds of quantum beam science and technology. We would appreciate your support for our activities at Takasaki Advanced Radiation Research Institute. 

April 2022
Yasunari MAEKAWA, Director General
