JASRI and CCLRC conclude a Memorandum of Understanding

On 23 January 2001 the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) concluded a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Council for the Central Laboratory of the Research Councils (CCLRC), which runs the Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) through Daresbury Laboratory in the UK, to facilitate advanced synchrotron radiation research at SPring-8.[link]

Professor Hiromichi Kamitsubo, Director of the Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, JASRI, and Dr Hywel Price, Director of Daresbury Laboratory, CCLRC, signed the MOU at SPring-8 in Japan. It provides a framework for JASRI and CCLRC to undertake collaboration activities in areas of mutual interests including technical meetings, the exchange of researchers, and research collaboration projects over the next three years.

Collaboration activities will pay special attention to developing more sophisticated:

(i) synchrotron radiation detector technology,

(ii) accelerator technology,

(iii) beamline optical systems.

The principal objective of the MOU is to enhance each side's ability to develop and operate leading-edge synchrotron radiation research facilities based on the knowledge that SPring-8 and Daresbury Laboratory will accumulate through the learning relationship.
