In order to construct ADS Target Test facility in J-PARC project the research and development on Pb-Bi technology have been carried, which cover target design with computer simulation, flowing loop test, stagnant corrosion test, oxygen sensor and cleaning techniques. Obtained results are as follows: Corrosion rate of SUS316 under flowing Pb-Bi at 1m/s at 450$$^{circ}$$C is 0.1 mm / 3000 hrs. Fe and Cr were melted into lead bismuth from SS316 in the high temperature part and deposited in the low-temperature part according to the difference of solubility. The corrosion thickness decreases with increasing Cr content in the stagnant corrosion test at saturated oxygen concentration. Reliable oxygen sensors are to be developed by using suitable reference electrodes. As a result of cleaning tests, blushing process was needed to remove Pb-Bi effectively after immersion in the silicon oil. The mixed acid easily dissolved Pb-Bi and removed almost perfectly. But specimens themselves were affected by coloring.
