Abstract

Our group is engaged in creating an innovative system in which an X-band linac X-ray source and 12TW50fs laser technologies are applied to medical and nano-technical uses. As pioneers in medical physics for reliable and safe medical radiology, we have endeavored to develop advanced laser beam technologies for cross-sectional and fused applications in the humanities and natural sciences to yield new synergies. This paper describes the developmental outcomes we have achieved to date.
