About the Public Beamlines

The Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) at J-PARC has capacity to accommodate up to 23 neutron beamlines. Of these, seven beamlines that have been constructed by JAEA are available to Japanese and international researchers under the public user program that is administered by CROSS-Tokai as of the start of FY 2011. These seven "Public Beamlines" are summarized below.

BL No. Beamline Name Applications
BL01 4D-Space Access Neutron Spectrometer
(4SEASONS)
Measurement of lattice and spin dynamics in condensed matter over a wide range of 4D momemtum-energy space
BL02 Biomolecular Dynamics Spectrometer (DNA) Measurement of atomic and spin dynamics (magnetic materials) in biological macromolecules soft matter and functional biomaterials
BL11 High-Pressure Neutron Diffractometer (PLANET) Structural analysis and radiography of liquids and crystalline materials under extreme pressure and temperature conditions
BL15 Small and Wide Angle Neutron Scattering Instrument (TAIKAN) Structural analysis on the nano and micro scale of metals, magnetic materials, soft matter, proteins and their complexes.
BL17 Polarized Neutron Reflectometer (SHARAKU) Structural analysis of functional thin film materials, biological thin films and buried interfaces
BL18 Extreme Environment Single Crystal Neutron Diffractometer (SENJU) Microcrystal and magnetic structure analysis of functional materials
BL22 Energy-Resolved Neutron Imaging System (RADEN) Visualization of the spatial distribution of crystal structures, nuclides and magnetic domains by neutron transmission imaging and 3D reconstruction
