Eurotech Japanese subsidiary Advanet received a letter of appreciation from RIKEN and JASRI for their contribution to the construction of the X-Ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) facility, 'SACLA' (SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free electron Laser), which went into full operation this year.
SACLA enables the emission of light waves that are employed for the advancement of basic and applied science in many areas, including: Protein Structure Analysis, Nanotechnology, Ultra-High Speed Imaging, Cellular Biology, and Matter-Antimatter interaction.
Advanet, one of the first contributors to the project, participated in development of the accelerator controller of ‘SPring-8, ’ the world’s largest third-generation synchrotron research facility. Advanet has been delivering small quantities of high-speed analog boards and CPU boards to the facility for 15 years. No further details have been disclosed.
