The ISIS – Netherlands agreement, funded by the NWO and implemented through the Reactor Institute of the Technical University Delft (RID), builds on the long standing expertise at RID in the development and use of polarised neutron instruments.

​The Larmor instrument on the ISIS Second target station was constructed as part of the strong, ongoing collaboration between ISIS and the Technical University of Delft, funded by STFC and a grant from the Netherlands science funding agency the NWO. The collaboration has delivered a unique instrument capable of performing high throughput small angle neutron scattering (SANS) as well as enabling the continued development of cutting edge measurement techniques that rely on the manipulation of the neutron spin. In exchange for the significant investment of equipment and knowledge by the Netherlands their neutron scattering community receive 30 days of beamtime on the instrument for 10 years.​
