For each experiment at ISIS, a beamtime proposal outlining the scientific case must be submitted. A template to help with the writing of this case is available here. If you are a postgraduate or undergraduate student, your academic supervisor must be listed as the principal investigator on the proposal.
New users are always welcome at ISIS and we are constantly encouraging new areas of research that can flourish. ISIS scientists and the User Office can help you with your beam time proposal, and all ISIS users receive a high level of support during experiments.
UK industry and private sector researchers can use ISIS through the fast-track ISIS Collaborative R&D Programme. When a company joins the programme, requests for beamtime can be made at any time, and a decision on access to the facility will be made within two weeks.
