Overview of Scattering and Imaging Division

The Scattering and Imaging Division is in charge of maintaining and managing public beamlines dedicated to small-angle X-ray scattering or X-ray imaging at the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation facility. The beamline scientists at the Frontier Softmaterial Beamline (FSBL)  are also our division members.

On the basis of the reciprocal and real space information obtained from scattering and imaging, we support current users' researches in various fields, from advanced basic researches to industrial applications. Furthermore, we improve advanced synchrotron-based techniques and technologies. We also promote the research and development of X-ray scattering and imaging techniques for future users. In addition, the two teams will work together to create a new imaging field.

The Scattering and Imaging Division 

The following two research teams organize the division.
 Time-resolved Scattering Team
BL03XU, BL40B2, and BL40XU

 Microscopic and Dynamic Imaging Team
BL20B2, BL20X, BL28B2, and BL47XU
