II.2.4)
Description of the procurement:
The ISIS facility is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) near Oxford in the United Kingdom. The suite of neutron and muon instruments gives unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale. The facility supports a national and international community of more than 3 000 scientists for research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology and materials engineering, catalysis and polymers, and on to fundamental studies of materials. 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 does this through a diverse suite of neutron beamlines. Each beamline is dedicated to a particular neutrons catering technique. This requirement is for a replacement single crystal diffractometer to replace the current system in the ISIS R53 Materials Characterisation Laboratory (R53-MCL) This system was procured well over 15 years ago and has subsequently become unreliable and slow and can no longer meet the demands placed upon it in the running of the R53-MCL to support the running of the ISIS facility.
