II.1.4)
Short description:
The ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source is a world-leading centre for research at UKRI's STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford. STFC's suite of neutron and muon instruments give unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale. Neutron choppers are essential components for the majority of the instruments for conditioning the neutron beam to enable a range of scientific techniques to be employed.

Neutron choppers are spinning cylinders that block neutrons except for one or more window sections where the neutron beam is allowed to pass to the sample under study. ISIS operates different types of choppers, and this tender request relates to disc chopper systems that will operate in a vacuum environment. These systems may be arranged into single or double disc configurations with a low or high speed requirement. UKRI is looking for a supplier of reliable magnetic bearing drive Systems that will accommodate existing chopper payloads as well as future designs.
