Synchrotron Radiation: Advanced Probe for Next Generation Materials

The Center for Advanced Light Source and Materials Science (CALMS) has been established in IMR to prompt the collaboration of faculty members involved in synchrotron radiation research and encourage an organized approach associated with material research realized by advanced synchrotron radiation source. Synchrotron radiation source is an indispensable analytical tool in the field of material science. The use of this advanced light source allows the development of material science by rapid progress of new methodology such as high-resolution analysis for nanomaterials and an operand measurement of functional devices.
