ISIS Neutron and Muon Source @STFC
The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is based at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire and is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences. It is owned and operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, one of the councils that forms UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
ISIS mission is for neutrons and muons to advance knowledge and improve lives.
Its vision is that ISIS will lead the way in the innovative development and exploitation of neutron and muon sources, science, instrumentation and technology.
ISIS Neutron and Muon Source produces beams of neutrons and muons that allow scientists to study materials at the atomic level using a suite of instruments, often described as ‘super-microscopes’, each of which is individually optimised for the study of different types of matter. Neutron and muon experiments are non-destructive and provide results that cannot be achieved by other techniques. ISIS support a national and international community of more than 2000 scientists who use neutrons and muons for research in physics, chemistry, materials science, geology, engineering, and biology.
