Due to the fire incident in the
Deuteration Facility Synthetic Lab, in May 2021, the
D-laboratory is currently working at reduced capability, and requests for D-materials are limited to either stock materials or materials with less complex synthetic procedures during this round. If you do have a need for D-materials for a proposed experiment please contact the D-lab team (ISISDeuterationFacility@stfc.ac.uk) to
discuss the request before submitting your proposal - we will do our best to meet your deuteration requirements.
ISIS has returned to pre-Covid ways of running experiments after the long shutdown. This means that
we expect an experiment team to come to ISIS to run their experiment. Please
ensure you have an experiment team able to come physically to ISIS before submitting a proposal.
ISIS neutron and muon instruments are free at the point of access for academic and industry researchers, provided the results from experiments are published in the public domain. Terms and conditions for accessing ISIS can be found
here and useful information to note before applying can be found
here. We are not able to provide T&S costs for users travelling from outside the UK. For users funded through our EU Access grant or through an overseas ISIS-partnership agreement or access route, we will reimburse your travel expenses but you should make your own travel arrangements.
New users are always welcome at ISIS Neutron and Muon Source and we are constantly encouraging new areas of research that can flourish. There are a number of routes for academics and
industry to access beamtime. Please browse the box links below for further important information and guidance including links to our
