Network Operation Center

The campus network at JAIST is built with high-speed layer-3 core switches,etc. located at the Research Center for Advanced Computing Infrastructure.
In addition to the backbone switches, the floor switches also run at 10Gbps(wire speed), which enables very comfortable network access to any servers,anywhere in JAIST. The same information environment is also provided on JAIST Tokyo Satellite. Outside of JAIST, through SINET and WIDE Project Research networks, high-speed access to Tokyo and Osaka over 10Gbps network bandwidth is available.

Immersive and seamless visualization is done by using 3.8m x 2.4m screens on the front and bottom sides, and 2.4m x 2.4m screens on the right and left sides, respectively. In addition to this, many devices such as 3D Intelligent Display System, CyberGlove, CyberGrasp and PHANToM are used in research on the virtual reality.

Massively parallel processing system

Cray XC40 / SGI UV3000

Massively parallel processing (MPP) is a term used in computer architecture to refer to a computer system with many independent arithmetic units (or entire micro-processors) that run in parallel. MPP systems are designed for large scale scientific computing. The picture at left shows the Cray XC40 system at JAIST, built with 548 computing-node, total 19728 cpu-core, interconnected with Dragonfly technology and 70TB total memory.

file server system

To provide a reliable file storage environment, we are running high-speed,large-capacity file server systems in parallel. Through the high-speed campus network, researchers and students can utilize the information system from any computer at JAIST without changing their individual computer environment. Data backup is provided automatically by the systems, so each user can maintain their focus on research or study. Depending on the needs of users, they can select among a variety of file servers.

Material Analysis Systems

Molecular mass spectrometer (FT-ICR-MS)

Molecular mass spectrometer (FT-ICR-MS)

This device is a mass spectrometer that uses ion cyclotron resonance(ICR). In easurement, ionized samples are subjected to cyclotron motion in a high magnetic field, and confined within an ICR cell. Then, the resonance signal obtained by exposing them to a radio-wave pulse is Fourier transformed. This device produces a resolution from one to several hundred thousands, and its high sensitivity gives it the capacity to measure even pmol-fmol order samples.

Electron probe micro-analyzer (EPMA)

Electron probe micro-analyzer (EPMA)

The EPMA is a scanning electron microscope with the added function of spectroscopic analysis of characteristic X-rays. Since the characteristic X-rays emitted from samples are specific to elements, qualitative/quantitative analysis of the elements in the sample is possible. It is also possible to measure the element distribution on the sample surface.

Transmission electron microscope (TEM)

Transmission electron microscope (TEM)

The TEM is an apparatus used to observe and analyze microstructures of materials. This apparatus, Hitachi HF-2000, also can be used for Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDXS) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) of materials in the nanometer scale.

Focused ion beam system (FIB)

Focused ion beam system (FIB)

Less than a few micron 3D micro-fabrications (thinning, etching, milling etc) were done by focusing ion-beam on the surfaces of metal, insulator, semiconductor etc. As an ion source, Ga ion-beam is used under a few tens keV acceleration.
