The J-PARC is a joint project between two organizations, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK). The J-PARC stands for Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex and it is a new and exciting accelerator research facility in Japan, using MW-class high power proton beams at both 3 GeV and 50 GeV. Construction budget started on April 1 of 2001.ince then, the construction has proceeded smoothly in both accelerators and experimental halls and, finally, in the spring of 2009 (end of JFY2008) the Phase 1 project was completed after 8 years of construction period. The facility is located in Tokai-Mura in Japan.
Some proposals were already submitted from the members
of RIKEN Nishina Center (RNC) to J-PARC Hadron facility.
Collaborating between RNC and J-PARC is discussed as 'RIKEN-J-PARC-Center'.
