Toshiba has been fabricating many main accelerator components such as klystrons and their power supplies, radio-frequency (RF) cavities, normalconducting and superconducting magnets, and electron beam cooling devices. We have also been making efforts to develop accelerators as a whole system since the mid-1980s. Our accelerator-related technologies were concentrated in the construction of the SPring-8 synchrotron, the acceleration of which was successfully carried out at the beginning of 1997.
Accelerators will make a prominent contribution to the evolution of science and technology in the 21st century. We at Toshiba will devote our best efforts to this field with our advanced technologies.
