Aichi Synchrotron Radiation Center

Aichi Synchrotron Radiation Center

The Aichi Science & Technology Foundation was established through collaboration and cooperation among local industrial, academic, and government bodies and is operated as a local shared-use facility for voluntary use by the industrial sector. This facility is equipped with a light source capable of generating powerful light (from microwaves to X-rays), enabling various different types of analysis using this light. This facility has been designed chiefly for industrial use and has the following features.

  • Available for hard X-ray spectrum
  • User-friendly items and flexible application types
  • Enhanced support system: coordinator assignments and dispatch of human resources by the Aichi Prefectural Government and local university unions

Collaboration with Aichi Center for Industry and Science Technology

The Aichi Center for Industry and Science Technology, adjacent to Knowledge Hub Aichi, is equipped with advanced measurement and analysis equipment such as electron microscopes, and through their collaboration, this equipment is also available for use by Aichi Synchrotron Radiation Center. Coordinators are appointed to help users determine which analysis equipment is most suitable, helping Knowledge Hub Aichi support companies with problem solving and the creation of new industries.

What is synchrotron radiation?

Electromagnetic waves generated when electrons travelling straight at sub-light speed change directions. Called "dream light" due to its extreme luminance and ability to emit a wide spectrum of light. The luminance is a thousand to a million times stronger than normal measurement devices, and the spectrum of wavelengths goes from microwaves, infrared rays, optical wavelengths, ultraviolet rays and on through x-rays. By processing light into types suitable for each application using beam lines, it is possible to perform all kinds of analysis at both the atomic and molecular levels.
