- Daresbury Laboratory
Daresbury Laboratory is a scientific research laboratory near Daresbury in Cheshire, England, which began operations in 1962 and was officially opened on 16 June 1967 as the Daresbury Nuclear Physics Laboratory by the then Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Harold Wilson. It is run by the Science and Technology Facilities Council with around three hundred full-time staff.
- The Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS), now shut and in the process of being decommissioned.
- HPCx, a supercomputer.
- ALICE (accelerator), an electron accelerator previously known as ERLP (Energy Recovery Linac Prototype).
- EMMA (accelerator) an electron accelerator experiment.
- The New Light Source, a project which has evolved from the previous 4GLS project.
- MEIS, a medium energy ion scattering facility, used to perform depth profiling and quantitative surface structure determination experiments (situated in the tower complex visible in the photo).
- The national centre for electron spectroscopy and surface analysis (NCESS), which has a high-resolution x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy machine to probe near-surface chemical composition.
- SuperSTEM, a high resolution aberration-corrected STEM.
In 2009 the laboratory was awarded the title of the "Most Outstanding Science Park" at the UK Science Parks Association.
- Alec Merrison Daresbury Laboratory's first director
- Cockcroft Institute International centre for accelerator science and technology at Daresbury Laboratory
- Van de Graaff generator The former Nuclear Structure Facility at Daresbury was based on a Van de Graaff accelerator
- Arthur Dooley The Laboratory has a piece 'Splitting of the Atom', unveiled in 1971 constructed from magnetic steel and two 37 inch pole tips taken from the first cyclotron to operate outside the USA."Public Monument and Sculpture Association Record". http://pmsa.cch.kcl.ac.uk/LL/CHHT0011.htm.
