“Multi-probe” is a general way to investigate unknown properties of materials experimentally. In cases of material structures, various kinds of methods such as X-ray Scattering, Neutron Scattering, Electron Microscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, have been used. In these methods, Synchrotron Radiation, Free Electron Laser, Neutron, Muon and Slow Positron have common properties; these beams are supplied at large accelerator facilities, and are utilized under similar user programs. Therefore, it is an international trend to prepare common platform for the multi-probe use in order to maximize scientific output. Here we collect several examples of multi-probe studies in various fields to know how the multi-probe investigation is effective.
