World’s best heavy-ion accelerator (RAON)

  • RAON, a Korean heavy-ion accelerator, represents the world’s best and the most advanced in rare isotope capabilities
  • RAON is the world’s first superconducting particle accelerator that combines the features of both linear and circular accelerators optimally suitable for producing and studying more than a thousand new rare isotopes in the laboratory
  • The scientific scope of the Rare Isotope Accelerator extends to the stellar and space evolution, the nuclear symmetry energy, cancer treatment and even to genome mapping and sequencing.
  • The Rare Isotope research opens new, infinite possibilities for radioactive therapy to treat cancer patients or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to medical communities, daily necessities, precision control technologies, superconductors and for new materials commercially or non-commercially viable etc.

Institute for Basic Science (IBS)

  • A core research institute of the science business belt that carries out world-class research
  • Established in 2011, IBS will be gradually developed into a research institute with 50 research groups and 3,000 full-time employees by 2021
  • Conducts creative and adventurous research based on the curiosity of its researchers, and actively supports the dreams and passions of scientists who gathered from different corners of the world
