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...
