These are often collaborations with universities and science funding agencies, both within the UK and overseas. In addition, we work directly with industry in consultative and collaborative roles.
The Division offers a range of key skills and technologies of long term value to STFC and its communities. These include the design and manufacture of both superconducting and normal conducting magnets, composites technology, materials testing, cryocoolers for space and ground based applications, cryogenics, energy technologies, high power target engineering, advanced engineering design and analysis and project engineering and management of large scale complex experiment installations. ASD also runs the central Manufacturing Facility at RAL, with conventional and additive manufacture capability, and a comprehensive suite of metrology services.
