Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is a world-leading multi-disciplinary science organisation, whose goal is to deliver economic, societal, scientific and international benefits to the UK and its people - and more broadly to the world.
The ISIS Synchrotron accelerates a bunched beam of protons to high energies by rapidly cycling a proton beam in a circular orbit. To achieve optimum beam properties the protons are steered around the circle using dipole magnets with poles above and below the beam orbit. The protons themselves are contained within a vacuum chamber.
Alumina has been used successfully to manufacture the dipole vacuum vessels and has resulted in reliable operation of the ISIS Synchrotron for the last 30 years. These vessels are now approaching a 30 year life span and a requirement has been established to manufacture spare vessels for the current synchrotron, and to re-establish the manufacturing knowledge and skills for future synchrotrons being proposed.
