The ISIS neutron and muon source is a world leading research centre at STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Oxfordshire.
At the heart of ISIS is a high power particle accelerator. The Low Energy Beams Group, (LEBG) is responsible for creating the initial particle beam and delivering it to the ISIS accelerator. The group also runs several test stands for accelerator research and development. The Electrical Section of the group is responsible for maintaining, supporting and developing all electrical and electronic equipment associated with the Low Energy Beams Group. This includes equipment required for both ISIS operations and for accelerator test stands.
The equipment is a mix of commercial and in-house developed systems including: 100 A pulsed power supplies; 25 kV pulsed power supplies; 65 kV DC power supplies; temperature control systems; pulsed gas control systems; timing systems; interlock systems; and a host of smaller low voltage/low current power supplies and sub-systems required for monitoring and controlling the operation of ion source and low energy beam transport systems.
During this industrial placement opportunity, the successful student will be undertaking the following tasks:
We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.
(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
