ISIS provides world-class facilities for neutron and muon investigations of materials across a diverse range of science disciplines. ISIS 2007 details the work of the facility over the past year, including accounts of science highlights and descriptions of major instrument and accelerator developments, together with progress on the Second Target Station Project and the facility’s publications for the year.
As I write, ISIS is coming towards the end of a ten month shut-down.
Envronmental and Earth sciences
Technology developments for neutron scattering
The importance of disorder
Fundamental magnetic systems
Molecular and polymeric materials
Development at ISIS is a continuous process, driven both in response to the changing needs of the user community and to maintain ISIS as a world-class neutron and muon source.
Evolution of the existing instruments, and design and construction of new ones, open up fresh opportunities for materials investigations.
The 2007 long shut-down has seen large amounts of activity on the accelerators and target.
The Second Target station project has progressed rapidly throughout the year.
All users visiting the facility are invited to complete a satisfaction survey.
ISIS continues to be the world’s most successful pulsed spallation neutron source. For the period of this report and during scheduled operating cycles, ISIS delivered a total of 749 mA.hrs of user proton beam to the muon and neutron targets.
