X-ray Imaging Optics is a new research field which has developed rapidly after 1990's. The research field extends widely both in science and engineering, and due to the variety of its application area, this field is located at the hinge-on point of science and technology. This field is then playing an important role to develop a variety of research fields such as space science, life science, material science, science on synchrotron radiation, plasma & nuclear fusion science, medical engineering, and precise engineering. After the first symposium held in Tokyo (January, 1990), from the fifth one (1999 in Nagoya), this symposium has gone through in the whole metropolis in Japan. 23 years have already passed from the start, and the 12th is just prepared to open. During this period, the research activities around this society had developed prosperously with much support from outside. The past activities have mainly achieved by universities or research organizations, on the other hand, the recent technical maturities will give hope to many industrial applications, too. In this symposium, we aim to talk and discuss about the results on the optical and/or metrological techniques in the energy (wavelength) range of 100 eV - 200 keV (10 - 0.005 nm), scientific researches concerned with these results, and latest outcomes for the technological basis of X-ray imaging optics, to discuss about the future prospects.

X線結像光学は平成に入ってから急速に発展してきた新しい学問分野です。研究分野は広く理学と工学にまたがり、その利用領域の多様性から科学と技術の 要に位置し、宇宙科学、生命科学、物質・材料科学、放射光科学、プラズマ・核融合科学、医療技術、精密工学の広範な分野における研究進展に大きな役割を果 たしています。平成2年(1990年)1月に本研究会主催の第1回シンポジウムが東京で開催され、その後、第5回から全国の主要地域で回を重ねてきました。開始から23年が経過し、回も12回を数えます。この間、本研究会を中心にした研究活動は、多くの支援を得て順調に発展してきました。これまでの活動は、大学・研究機関が中心でしたが、技術的な成熟度から見て、今後は産業利用への期待も膨らみます。本シンポジウムでは、エネルギー(波長)領域約100eV~200keV(10~0.005nm)における光学・計測技術、またそれらによる科学研究およびX線結像光学の基盤技術に関する最新の研究成果を発表し、将来の展望を議論したいと思います。
