It’s not every day a student gets to judge a scientist, but that’s exactly what happened when STFC scientists took part in this year’s ‘I’m a Scientist – Get me out of here!’ competition.
A team from Portugal have used ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to analyse bone that has been treated for use in medical grafts in the hope it will lead to more effective and safer bone implants in the future.
Researchers at the University of Bristol are using neutrons to investigate the properties of chemicals used in fire-fighting foams in a bid to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Some may think science is only for the super smart, but in reality, science impacts everyone, everywhere. World Science Day for Peace and Development aims to highlight the importance of science in our daily lives.
It seems difficult to understand why, but what we see around us makes up just 5% of the Universe. The other 95% is a mystery, and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) created a global discussion about how we can solve it!
Experts at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory are helping CERN’s upgrade at the LHC by providing ‘crab cavities’.
The Central Laser Facility (CLF) recently welcomed four engineers from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai for a knowledge exchange visit.
Super structures designed at Daresbury Laboratory and fabricated near John O’Groats have been successfully installed at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden.
Breakthrough radiotherapy technology that aims to reduce the cost and improve the performance of cancer treatment, is now one step closer to completion following a major milestone in its development.
Last week we inspired over 400 families with STFC’s computing science.
