Japanese
It is a laboratory for astrophysics, founded as one of the laboratories in Department of Physics, Saitama University. We observe various astrophysical objects with telescopes in space and on ground to reveal physics in space. Many works are carried out in collaboration with universities, ISAS/JAXA, NASA, and ESA.

We study on high energy physics in various astronomical objects, from stellar mass black holes to super massive black holes, and from galaxies to  cluster of galaxies, by observing X-rays and gamma-rays from the objects (more).

  • Observation of Cosmic X-rays

  • R&D of observation instruments on board astronomical satellites.

  • R&D and observation on ground.
