Controls and Computing System

   SPring-8 is a third generation synchrotron radiation facility that generates a high brilliant synchrotron radiation. The facility consists of state-of-the-art accelerators and 62 X-ray beam lines that play essential role to explore the scientific phenomena and the innovative technologies with the synchrotron radiation.
   If the equipment of the accelerators and the beam lines is compared to the human body, the control system could be the brain and the nerve. It can be said that the operation capability of a modern light source, hence the quality of the synchrotron radiation, greatly depends on the performance of the control system. "Good athlete has good nerve."
   The Controls and Computing Division in SPring-8 constantly researches the modern control architecture and information technologies, takes charge of the maintenance and the upgrade of the SPring-8 control systems and information service systems.
