Nakamura Group (Tokyo-EBIT)

Institute for Laser Science, University of Electro-Communications

The Nobuyuki Nakamura Laboratory seeks to elucidate the phenomena associated with the essential properties of highly-charged ions from the perspective of atomic physics and to develop highly-charged ion sources that enable such research.

In 1997, Professor Ohtani and Associate Professor Nakamura in the Institute for Laser Science at the University of Electro-Communications built the Tokyo-EBIT, one of the world’s largest, highest-performance, highly-charged ion sources. They subsequently designed and built a compact highly-charged ion source called CoBIT, which measures barely one-sixth the size of the Tokyo-EBIT, yet retains its fundamental structures.
