Outline

In recent years, a variety of fundamental scientific research fields have been established due to the production of various high-intensity quantum beams created by accelerators. However, these studies have been carried out independently and not enough effort has been made to share theoretical progresses and technological advances to other research fields. Based on the World-renowned advanced detector technology developed in Japan for space X-ray and gamma-ray observations, we will establish common theoretical frameworks and technological platforms and combine them with exotic quantum beams, namely negative muons, virtual photons and polarized RI beams. This will enable us to perform cooperative works in different research fields and develop novel methods. Furthermore, this will not only contribute to the area of fundamental sciences, but also towards new applications such as non-destructive 3D element analysis and medical applications.
