J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) is a high intensity proton accelerator facility. It is a joint project between KEK and JAEA and is located at the Tokai campus of JAEA. J-PARC aims for the frontier in materials and life sciences, and nuclear and particle physics. High intensity proton beams lead to a high intensity secondary beam, e.g., neutron, meson, neutrino beam.


Central facilities of J-PARC

J-PARC includes three main parts: 400 MeV Linac for RCS injection, 600 MeV for ADS (the accelerator-driven nuclear waste transmutation system), RCS (Rapid Cycling Synchrontron, 3GeV), and MR (Main Ring, 50 GeV).
