​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Their neutron and muon instruments give unique insights into the ​properties of materials​ on the atomic scale. ​ ​

ISIS produces beams of neutrons and muons that allow scientists to study materials at the atomic level using a suite of instruments, often described as ‘super-microscopes’. It supports a national and international community of more than 2​000 scientists who use neutrons and muons for research in physics, chemistry, materials science, geology, engineering, and biology.

ISIS neutron and muon instruments are free to use for researchers provided the results from experiments are published in the public domain. Fully confidential use of the instruments is also available for industrial and commercial customers. ​

Connect Harwell’s bi-monthly events are open to all campus organisations and sectors, providing a central forum to network and meet colleagues from the 200+ companies and facilities spread across the site. Connect Harwell events are hosted by a different campus organisation each time, providing an opportunity to visit some of the buildings you may never have been inside.

If you cannot come along in November, please invite colleagues along in your place and also feel free to invite any contacts you may have from other campus-located organisations that you work with.
