ISIS provides world-class facilities for neutron and muon investigations of materials across a diverse range of science disciplines. ISIS 2009 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 updates on the Second Target Station and the facility's publications for the year.
The introduction to this years Annual Report by ISIS Director, Andrew Taylor.
The advanced facilities provided by ISIS enable world-class research to be performed by scientists from around the world together with facility staff.
Organic spin-valves, spin cycles and semi-conductors
Frustrated magnets and spin-chain systems
Dopant atoms and negative thermal expansion
Protein resistant surfaces and drug delivery
Symmetry breaking, bonding and superconductors
Spider-silk, catalysts and looking to the future
Development at ISIS is a continuous process, driven in response to the changing needs of the user community and to maintain ISIS as a world-class neutron and muon source.
This year has seen first science being done on Second Target Station instruments. And the instruments are more than living up to expectations!
As well as larger instrument developments, advances in techniques or in other experimental equipment also enable new science to be done using neutrons and muons at ISIS.

The facts and figures for 2009
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 612 mA.hrs of user proton beam to the muon and neutron targets.
