Laboratory for Advanced Nuclear Energy (LANE) at the Tokyo Institute of Technology – Science and Scientists for the Future of Nuclear Energy.
The Laboratory for Advanced Nuclear Energy (LANE) is based at the Tokyo Institute of Technology and is focused on providing the latest research in nuclear energy, radiation utilizations, as well as ensuring the safety of nuclear energy. As populations increase across the world and energy consumption goes up, traditional fossil fuel-burning means of generating energy are proving increasingly damaging to the environment. It’s essential that we find better ways of generating energy. At the same time, after the Tohoku earthquake in 2011, it’s essential to ensure all future use of nuclear energy does not pose the same risks, better anticipating events like these and their potential impact. Japan and the world as a whole have high expectations for the kind of work LANE is doing, and Professors, students and staff plan to meet these expectations head on.
