Since 1961, the ISSP has been playing a central role in neutron scattering activities in Japan not only by performing its own research programs but also by providing a general user program for the university owned various neutron scattering spectrometers installed at the research reactor of JAEA (Tokai). In the JRR-3 reactor (20MW), the university group owns 14 spectrometers, and the Neutron Science Laboratory (NSL) provided a general user program. Under this program, about 300 proposals are submitted every year, and the number of visiting users under this program reaches over 6000 (person-day/year). Major research areas are solid state physics (strongly correlated electron systems, high-Tc superconductors, heavy Fermions systems, low dimensional magnetism, high-pressure physics, etc.), fundamental physics and neutron beam optics, structure and phase transitions of polymers, gels, and colloidal systems, physical chemistry of complex condensed matter, structure and functions of biological systems, and material sciences. The NSL also operates the U.S.-Japan cooperative program on neutron scattering, and supports the development of the neutron-beam-based material sciences in Japan.
