Due to a recent fire with the Deuteration Facility Synthetic Lab, we are not currently inviting requests for D-materials during this roundIf you do have a need for D-materials for a proposed experiment please contact the D-lab team (​) to discuss the request – we may be able to help if we have the material in our recovered stocks.

Whilst ISIS has been operating largely with remote users (users sending samples in) during the Covid pandemic, we will return to pre-Covid ways of running experiments after the long shutdown (assuming Covid rules allow this at the time).  This means that we will expect an experiment team to come to ISIS to run their experiment.  We have been able to operate for a short period with ISIS instrument scientists running experiments, but we are not staffed for this to be a longer term solution.  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​.

New users are always welcome at ISIS Neutron and Muon Source and we are constantl​y encouraging new areas of research that can flourish.  There are a number of routes for acad​emics and industry​ to access beamtime.  Please ​browse the box links below for further important information and guidance including links to our instrument pages​​​.
