Bilateral Collaboration Research Program (National Institutes of Natural Sciences)
Leader：Prof. Kazunobu Nagasaki
Project Period：FY2004 ‒
Bilateral collaboration research program promotes joint research bilaterally between an inter-university research institute, National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS), and the research institute or research center of a university that has a unique facility for nuclear fusion research. Under this collaboration, the facility is open to researchers throughout Japan as a joint-use program of NIFS. Our research subject under this program is to investigate experimentally and theoretically the improvement of the plasma confinement,
the plasma structure formation, and the suppression of plasma instabilities, in advanced helical systems such as Heliotron J.
