Photon Storage Ring concept, a new type of infrared free electron laser, was developed by Dr. Hironari Yamada.
Dr. Hironari Yamada developed a new miniature synchrotron theory.
Photon Production Laboratory, Ltd. was established with the objective to develop and commercialize its tabletop hard X-ray emission synchrotron gMIRRORCLE.h
Photon Production Laboratory was re-commissioned for the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and New Energy Development Organization (NEDO) for the gDevelopment of a Hard X-Ray Generation Device based on Ultra-Portable Electron Storage Ringh project.
Construction of MIRRORCLE-20 was completed with successful beam injection in December (we received a grant for basic research in science category gAh).
The company received certification under the gTemporary Law Concerning Measures for the Promotion of the Creative Business Activities of Small and Medium Enterprises.h
Ritsumeikan Universityfs gSynchrotron Light Life Science Programh using MIRRORCLE was selected as a MEXT 21st Century COE program.
Worldfs smallest tabletop synchrotron, gMIRRORCLE-6Xh begins operations (we received a grant for basic research in science category gSh).
Laser oscillation in a photon storage ring was observed for the first time, verifying the theory developed by Professor Hironari Yamada and Dr. Andrey Kleev.
Development of MIRRORCLE-20SX as an X-ray lithography device for the semiconductor industry began.
We were selected for NEDOfs gSubsidies to Realize Development of Industrial Technologies (individual application)h and started the development of a portable MIRRORCLE device. The theme was gdevelopment of a high-precision nondestructive inspection device using tabletop synchrotron.h
We were selected for the Ministry of International Trade and Industryfs gResearch and Development Project by Regional Regeneration Consortiumsh project and started the development of protein structure analysis BL in collaboration with Nagahama Institute of BioSciences and Technology.
MIRRORCLE was registered and officially certified as a tabletop synchrotron device in gNuclear Power Library, Genshiro.h
We received certification under New Partnership Business program
An investigative research for the establishment of the gMIRRORCLE EU Centreh in Europe was adopted by the European Union Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. Five institutions in Europe collaborated on designing a beam line, led by Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven).
Development of MIRRORCLE-CV4 is complete.
Received advanced certification for the Small and Medium Enterprise Agencyfs gSME Core Manufacturing Technologies.h
