The industrial application of quantum beam will rapidly expand in the field such as high-volume production of semiconductor devices. Cancer therapy using ionizing radiation has also attracted much attention. In Department of Beam Materials Science, the radiation-induced chemical reaction and reaction field have been investigated using state-of-the-art quantum beam (electron, extreme ultraviolet radiation, laser, synchrotron radiation, X-ray, g-ray, ion beam). We have studied the chemical reaction system from the energy deposition on materials to the expression of material function. On the basis of these studies, we have designed a noble chemical reaction system. Investigation of radiation-induced fast reactions of materials at extreme conditions (high temperature / pressure conditions up to supercritical regime) is also ongoing.
