The Technical Division was established in 1982 to deal with professional duties providing better service for researchers. In the ISIR organization, the technician group is independent of the management and the research groups. The organization was the first one among similar organizations established in the national universities of Japan. The Division consists of two groups:Group of Machineand Group of Measurement, in which each group has two sections: Section of Machine/Circuit, Section of Glass in Group of Machine and Section of Measurement/Information, Section of Analysis/Data in Group of Measurement. The technicians work at various places: the Comprehensive Analysis Center, the Workshop, the Office of Information Network, the Research Laboratory for Quantum Beam Science and the Nanotechnology Center. The Division gives not only high-quality service to research groups but technical training to the researchers and students. The annual report is published to help and encourage training and activities of the members of the Division. In addition, the Division has started the safety lecture for utilizing various machines in the ISIR since 2004. The Technical Division makes every effort to promote the ISIR more important development under an independent administration system.
