Teams within the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) have been working together, and with a community of universities and national laboratories to explore just how this technique could be used to create lightweight mirrors for space – when weight and volume limits are critical!
The North West Training Council’s (NWTC) 50th Annual Apprenticeship Awards were a big night for learners from across the region, but it was Daresbury Laboratory’s apprentices who won big on the night.
An Electrical Engineering Apprentice from Daresbury Laboratory completed his apprenticeship with a work placement at the European Spallation Source (ESS) – an international project which he contributed to here in the UK.
A group of eco-minded staff at Daresbury Laboratory have come together to create a ‘green team’ - sharing ideas and implementing changes relating to the environment and sustainability.
The world’s first plant-powered sensor transmission to a satellite has been achieved thanks to a collaboration between recent STFC business incubatee Lacuna Space and Dutch green-energy specialists Plant-e.
Scientists from King's College London and Manchester University, in collaboration with scientists at ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS), have carried out the first-ever investigations of the microstructure of aqueous creams.
Apprentices at Daresbury Laboratory came together to celebrate their achievements at the site’s annual apprenticeship awards ceremony.
Daresbury Laboratory (DL) has welcomed schools from across the North West for the annual FIRST LEGO League tournament.
Two thousand years ago the heat of a volcano burned the contents of a library in the doomed Roman city of Herculaneum. Today, a team of researchers from the University of Kentucky, working at the UK and STFC’s x-ray synchrotron Diamond Light Source research facility, are using the light of a billion Suns to hopefully reveal the writing locked away within the ancient charred papyri.
A team of scientists working at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) have made a key breakthrough in understanding how a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii reproduces with its host. The parasite, which causes a disease called toxoplasmosis, can infect almost any warm blooded animal but must reproduce in cats, can control the behaviour of its host and is thought to infect as much as half the world’s human population.
