05 Fluorescent X-rays Holography

We aim at establishing a holography technique to observe light elements active-sites by complementary user of neutrons and X-ray.  Using neutron and fluorescent Xray holography, We aims at observing local structures around doped boron in materials , and at applications to investigations of dopants in soft materials.

[TARGET 1] 3D Light Elements Imaging by Neutron Holography
We will realize world-first pulsed neutron holography at MLF of J-PARC, which is the brightest neutron facility in the world, to visualize 3D images of light elements in materials.   The first target will be functional materials with B doping.

[TARGET 2] Development of Novel Instruments for soft X ray Holography
We develop novel instruments for fluorescent X-rays holograhy in the soft Xr-ay region to investigate 3D local structures of relatively lighter elements such as Ca, K.  We pioneer active-sites investigations in organic- and bio-materials.

[TARGET 3] Observations of 3D active-sites in protein crystals
Using the developed techniques for visualization of light elements and cooling method to reduce radiation damages of soft-matter samples, we pioneer investigation of 3D active-sites in biomaterials, which has been difficult by any conventional methods.
