It is an amazing fact that your world and the atomic world are intimately connected by materials and their properties, even though you are about one thousand million times bigger than an atom! At ISIS we are fascinated by this idea.

ISIS is a large experimental facility at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. It is used by scientists from around the world to study materials in microscopic detail.

The key to research at ISIS is the neutron – a fundamental particle that is used as a probe to study the properties of solids and liquids at an atomic level.
