Access for Australian researchers to advanced neutron beam techniques (ARC LIEF Administered by Australian Institute of Nuclear Science Engineering) (2008–2012)

This application is to continue Australia's partnership with the world's leading pulsed neutron source, ISIS in the UK, for the next five years. This partnership will allow Australian researchers to exploit the complementarity of spallation and reactor neutron sources and sustain the considerable scientific momentum in Australia that is reliant upon ISIS. The primary outcome will be new science that cannot be generated solely within Australia. The contestability of the ISIS access process helps ensure the quality of Australian science across a broad range of areas including studies of functional metal oxides, minerals, surface reactions, polymers and soft condensed matter. Important international collaborations will also be fostered.
