Abstract : The SPring-8 project site was visited on 23 Jun. 93. The SPring-8 project is one of the major projects managed by the Science and Technology Agency of the Japanese Government for construction of a world-class high energy synchrotron radiation facility (8 Gev). It started in the beginning of the 1989 Japanese Fiscal Year (Apr. 89). Since the inception of the project, 35% of the total estimated budget of $1.1 billion has been spent. The facility is expected to begin initial operations before the end of 1997. The project is expected to be completed in 1999 with 61 beam lines available for experiments. Out of these, 10 beam lines are set aside for cooperative use. The remaining 51 beam lines are modified according to users for their needs, and users will pay for installation and maintenance. Once completed, this facility will serve more than 2,000 research scientists around the world and more than 30 research projects. Included in these projects are observations of the surface structure from electrochemical reactions and X-ray diffraction.
