Beamtime and Batteries at a World-leading Neutron and Muon source Rebecca Shutt PhD researcher, Advanced Characterisation of Materials Centre for Doctoral Training, UCL and Imperial College London My first interaction with the UK neutron and muon source, ISIS, was to apply for beamtime in November last year (2018).  The experiment: to probe structural changes within battery electrodes whilst they are being cycled, i.e. to watch layers of graphene in disordered carbons “breathe” in response to in situ charging and discharging. I am at the very beginning of my PhD, so when I was granted beamtime my first reaction was to...

£12 Million Awarded to SES Institutions to Deliver University HPC

By | Just Added, News | One Comment
Researchers across the Science and Engineering South Consortium (SES) and the wider UK research community will soon benefit from an influx of funding to support scientific work on computational systems, crucial to the development of the UK economy and with high impact in areas such as the environment, technology, and health. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research council (EPSRC) has awarded £12 million to SES institutions towards developing university Tier 2, High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities with a diversity of architectures that are designed to provide a boost to research and innovation and fill a gap where computational needs have...
