ISIS neutron and muon source

Company Overview

ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is based at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire and is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences. It is owned and operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, one of the councils that forms UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
ISIS Neutron and Muon Source 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’, each of which is individually optimised for the study of different types of matter. Neutron and muon experiments are non-destructive and provide results that cannot be achieved by other techniques. We support a national and international community of more than 2000 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.
