The University of Manchester at Harwell provides a range of services including equipment development, testing and experiment and data analysis support.
Our services cover the following three aspects:
- The provision of equipment, equipment development and manufacture, and support for high risk experiments and those carried out under extreme sample environments.
- The processing and analysis of large data sets generated from facility science experiments, particularly those involving 3D imaging. We handle the entire data processing pipeline, from reconstruction to quantified data.
- Lab XCT scanning capabilities, with access to our Harwell-based Nikon XTH 225 ST X-ray computed tomography system, experimental rigs and off-line testing facility.
Our service covers the entire digital data processing workflow, from reconstruction to visualisation. We deliver the measurements and metrics you require, so you can focus on the science.
Our laboratory system is available to scan your samples and reveal its internal details in three dimensions non-destructively.
Development of custom rigs and containment cells for extreme environments, e.g. for high pressure applications, use with energetic materials or containing of radioactive and/or toxic materials.
Support from application, experiment preparation to equipment operation during beamtime.
