A collaboration between ESS and the Spallation Neutron Source has resulted in a new piece of sample environment equipment.Read More
Sample Handling and General Use Labs (SULF)
The Sample Handling and General Use Labs (SULF) will be located inside the ESS facility, in close proximity to the instruments. They will enable innovative science through optimised sample preparation, handling, conditioning and characterisation.
Optimising workflowDesign and equip laboratories around the experimental halls considering all aspects of the user experience.
SafetyAccommodate activation and toxicity hazards, interface with the ESS Division for Environment, Safety, Health and Quality.
Sample handlingEstablish the full workflow from arrival, storage, tagging, preparation/conditioning, pre- and post-experiment characterisation and waste disposal.
Science Focus Areas at ESS
Engineering Materials, Geosciences, Archeology & Heritage Conservation and Fast Neutron Applications
In situ, in operando and non-destructive probing with neutrons.
Some of the most exciting discoveries in a generation are being made with neutron science.
ESS will enable some areas of life science, medical and pharmacological research to investigate with neutrons for the first time.
