We have been progressing the research and development of novel compact quantum beam sources and multi-particle detection systems for heavy-ion-beam cancer therapy and molecular imaging. Furthermore, we will contribute to develop biocompatible materials and medicines by studying physical and chemical changes of the matters after irradiation of the quantum beams.
Development of the compact highly charged ion sources (Application to the heavy-ion beam cancer therapy)
Development of the time-resolved position sensitive detectors (Application to the molecular imaging)
To investigate the interactions between some quantum beams and matters by means of atomic physics experiments (Development of the biocompatible materials)
