Features
Research Center for Neutrino Science established ultra-low radioactivity environment (trillion times lower than natural environment) with 1200 cubic-meter organic scintillator detector at 1000m underground where very stable temperature/humidity and low vibration are maintained. We are pursuing high sensitivity measurements, especially neutrino observation, and are also developing purification system for ultra-low radioactivity and high performance radioactivity detectors.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
The established ultra-low radioactivity environment is suitable for rare phenomena study and is also applicable for high sensitivity radio-impurity measurement. It may also apply to investigation of biological influence of low radioactivity irradiation. The other applications such as neutrino detection technique for monitoring nuclear reactors and medical use of high sensitivity radioactivity detectors may also be considered.
