The charge conversion foil used with a J-PARC 3GeV synchrotron (RCS: Rapid Cycling Synchrotron) is a thin film made from carbon about 1 micrometer thick, and it radioactivates it by continuing being irradiated with a beam. Moreover, generally it is thought that degradation progresses and foil itself breaks easily. However, when dealing with the foil after irradiation, the measure against the danger of the contamination and the contamination in the living body by foil dispersing is one of the subjects. So, in RCS, the foil exchange booth for collecting the radioactivated foil safely and certainly was installed. Even when dispersing foil temporarily, the radioactivated foil can be shut up only in Booth and a worker's contamination and contamination of work area could be prevented. Moreover, when it sees from a viewpoint of the performance gain of foil, analysis and observation of the collected foil are one of the important issues. Then, in order to observe the radioactivated foil after beam irradiation, the transparent protective case which can be sealed with a foil frame simple substance was developed. In this announcement, the equipment developed in order to collect the charge conversion foil after beam irradiation, and the established technique are announced in detail.
