Purpose of establishment:
The installation purpose.
To the organization, it installs and manages Institute of
Particle and Nuclear Studies, Institute of Materials Structure
Science, Accelerator laboratory and Applied research laboratory.
Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies
The theoretical research on elementary particle by
high-energy accelerator and experimental research on
atomic nucleus and this is made to be a purpose.
Institute of Materials Structure Science
The following are made to be a purpose : Material
structure by high-energy accelerator and experimental
research on the function and theoretical research
concerning this.
Accelerator laboratory
The following are made to be a purpose : Institute of
Particle and Nuclear Studies and atomic nucleus research
and high-energy accelerator research as key facility of
the material science research and proton accelerator and
operation and management of electron and positron beams
type accelerator.
Applied research laboratory
It is composed of Radiation Science Center, Computational
Research center, Cryogenic Research Center and Mechanical
Engineering center, and research and research support of
related fields necessary for the research performance using
the large accelerator in the mechanism are made to be a
purpose.
J-PARC Project Office
JAERI and KEK Joint Project (J-PARC) which advances Japan
Atomic Energy Res. Inst. and construction cooperatively are
undertaken.
Business overview:
Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies
Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies research and
development with the aim of a realization of future
accelerator plan, while materials by electron and
positron collision type accelerator and B Factory
Project which approach the mystery of the relation
of the antimatter, cosmic ray study place and the
experiments which investigates a secret of the neutrino
in the cooperation, elementary particle using proton
synchrotron and reclamation of new research field of
atomic nucleus, etc. are advanced And, it aims at
further promotion of the cooperative research with main
research institute in the world such as European
Organization for Nuclear Res. (CERN).

Institute of Materials Structure Science
The material structure science laboratory opens up
the most advanced of the research of structure and
function of the material using the ultramodern beam
(synchrotron radiation, neutron, muon, etc.) of the
diffence developed with the development of the
accelerator in fields such as not only physics but
also chemistry, biology, engineering, medicine,
agricultural science and advancing the research of
further upgrading of generation and application
technology of the beam, it aims at contributing to
the reclamation of the new frontier of the material
science.

Accelerator laboratory
Accelerator laboratory studies the high-energy
accelerator as key facility of elementary particle
and atomic nucleus research and material science
research.
Electron and positron collision type accelerator
(B Factory) with the aim of the frontier of the
elementary particle research are being constructed,
while operation and management of proton accelerator
and electron and positron beams type accelerator are
carried out.

Applied research laboratory
The development research of relating field is carried
out, Applied research laboratory while it consists of
Radiation science center, Computing research center,
Cryogenics Science Center and Mechanical Engineering
Center, and while research support of related fields
necessary for the research performance using the large
accelerator in the mechanism is carried out.

J-PARC Project Office
Whole planning JAERI and KEK Joint Project and
performance improvement of the accelerator facilities
and development research of measuring device, etc,
research for safety improvement in the accelerator
operation, etc.
Budget:
  • 2004: \ 40,261 (Million)
