Maintenance, operation, and management of SPring-8

JASRI is commissioned by RIKEN to maintain, operate, and manage SPring-8.

Experiments are supported by providing a stable supply of synchrotron radiation

  • Improvement of performance of storage ring
  • Stored current held constant through top-up operation
  • Improvement of emittance (improvement of brightness of light sources) from 6.3 nmrad (1999) → 2.4 nmrad (2013)
  • Improvement of light converging optical systems (to achieve 100 nm beams)
  • Construction of stable control system for storage ring (MADOCA control system)
  • Provision of some of the services concerning radiation safety management
  • Downtime reduced to 0.5% or less
