The Crystallography Group at ISIS carries out personal and collaborative research programs using neutron diffraction in various fields of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering. We are also responsible for developing new time-of-flight diffraction instruments.
Our group operates a suit of instruments that consist of several powder diffractometers, including a beamline entirely dedicated to high-pressure studies, another dedicated engineering beamline and a single crystal diffractometer. The most recent addition to our suite of instruments is WISH a high-resolution magnetic materials diffractometer.
The crystallography programme at ISIS focuses largely on the powder diffractometers HRPD, Polaris, Gem and WISH, the single crystal instrument SXD and the High Pressure Facility, Pearl.
These instruments form a complementary suite:
The Crystallography group is also heavily involved in developing instrumentation, experimental techniques and software for the full range of crystallographic work undertaken at ISIS.
