At the Department of Advanced Accelerator Technologies we are engaged in the development of accelerators with higher luminosity, more intense beams, and higher quality beams, and of physics detectors with greater precision and processing speed. With these advanced accelerators and detectors of heretofore unparallelled performance research into fundamental particles, nuclei, and material and life sciences will rapidly develop, expanding the horizons of knowledge. The Department of Advanced Accelerator Technologies was established as a research center that can lead the accelerator science of the future, and promote the further development of Japan's already world-class accelerator science. In addition, through the strengthening of cooperation between industry, academia and government, we aim for the spread of valuable innovations born of technical developments for frontier accelerators.

Asian Forum for Accelerator and Detectors—AFAD 2013—was held
May 1, 2013

The Asian Forum for Accelerator and Detectors—AFAD 2013—was held February 25–26, 2013 at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (BINP), Novosibirsk, Russia. AFAD was inaugurated in 2011 with the aim of strengthening the cooperation and collaboration among Asian countries in the research and development of accelerators, accelerator-related technologies, detectors, as well as their applications. In this year, 110 researchers from both academia and industry from ten countries and regions, including Russia and Japan, attended the forum.

US and Japan discuss cooperation in advanced science and technology
April 30, 2013

It's suit and tie time when high-level US and Japanese science planners meet. At the US-Japan Advanced Science and Technology Symposium, held on 30 April in Washington DC, leaders from government, academia and industry met to discuss US-Japan cooperation in science and technology, using the ILC as an example. Learn more in the next issue of LC NewsLine. On the left is a Daniel B. Poneman, Deputy Secretary of Energy, and on the right Takeo Kawamura, Member of the Lower House and Chair of the Federation of Diet members in support of the ILC.

Successful X-ray Generation using Inverse Compton Scattering with SCRF Technology Confirmed at STF
April 4, 2013

On March 15, scientists working on the Quantum Beam Technology Program at KEK’s superconducting RF test facility (STF) confirmed the successful generation of X-rays using Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) with superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) acceleration technology. This is the world’s first successful implementation of ICS X-ray sources with SCRF technology.
