Three electrostatic accelerators of TIARA were operated smoothly in FY 2008, and all the planned experiments were carried out except those canceled by users. The yearly operation time of the tandem accelerator, the single-ended accelerator and the ion implanter amounted to 2009, 2426 and 1882 hours, respectively. Regarding the tandem accelerator, the control system was renewed, and the unstable acceleration voltage caused by mechanical vibration reduced by adjusting the driving mechanism of the pellet chains. The SF$$_{6}$$ gas for the single-ended accelerator was purified, and its storage tank was repainted. As to the ion implanter, Bi$$_{2}$$ ion, which was requested by users, was successfully generated and accelerated with intensity of 0.5$$mu$$A.
