CLFCentral Laser FacilityThe ISIS neutron spallation neutron source is located at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratoryof the Central Laboratories of the Research Councils. The CLF Facility was established in 1977 to provide lasers and associated instrumentation for use by UK university researchers. EPSRC-supported activity at the facility includes research using the two large laser installations, Vulcan and Titania, and a number of table-top systems in the Lasers for Science Facility for research in physics, chemistry, and materials science.
CLRCCentral Laboratory of the Research CouncilsThe Central Laboratory of the Research Councils is one of Europe's largest multidisciplinary research support organisations. Its facilities and expertise support the work of more than 12000 scientists and engineers from around the world, both in universities and in industry. The major EPSRC-supported facilities provided by CLRC at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and Daresbury Laboratory include the Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS), ISIS Neutron Spallation Source, Central Laser Facility (CLF), Central Computing Facility, the Central Microstructure Facility (CMF), Research Unit for Surfaces, Transforms & Interfaces (RUSTI) and Medium Energy Ion Source (MEIS).
CMFCentral Microstructure FacilityThe CMF is located at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratoryof the Central Laboratories of the Research Councils. The Facility provides microfabrication services to universities and industry, producing photomasks, reticles, wafers and other precision artefacts, made using the latest electron beam, excimer laser and X-ray technologies with feature sizes from millimetres to 50 nanometres.
