Technology development at ISIS is a continuous process, driven in response to the changing scientific needs of the user community and to maintain ISIS as a world-class neutron and muon source.
Evolution of existing instruments and construction of new ones, together with advances in neutron and muon techniques, provide fresh opportunities for materials investigations.
The past year has seen first users on several new ISIS instruments, and a variety of other technique and instrument enhancements. Alongside technical development comes a wide range of education and training activities – from training courses and workshops for the user community, to projects run with teachers and schools.
