Physics research continues at Daresbury


MoU signing at Daresbury

Professor Peter Weightman, Physics and Professor Mike Poole, Head of the Centre

A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the University and the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre at Daresbury.

The agreement is for the future use of the terahertz beamline that the Department of Physics constructed on the ALICE accelerator at the Daresbury Science and Innovation campus.

The beamline is the most intense broadband source of terahertz radiation in Europe and the only one in the world equipped with a tissue culture facility for research on human tissue. It has considerable potential for research in biology, medicine and energy and is currently being used in a research programme funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
