Daresbury Laboratories Visit
A Level Physics Students visit Daresbury Laboratories, a world class location for high-tech business and leading edge science
A Level Physics Students visit Daresbury Laboratories Friday 12th November.
Daresbury Science & Innovation Campus (Daresbury SIC) is a world class location for high-tech business and leading edge science. It provides a unique environment for innovation and business growth, with knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking.
Mosslands students were able to undertstand how Physics plays a key role in all our lives through cutting edge research.
Cleaner fuel, safer aircraft and new medicines, great tasting chocolate and iPods - all of these things have been influenced or made possible by world leading scientific research carried out on the Synchrotron Radiation Source at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Daresbury Laboratory in Warrington.
The SRS has improved the quality of our lives in a remarkable number of ways that we take for granted. As examples, it has helped develop new medicines by studying the atomic structure of proteins; it has enabled the production of new materials for use in electronics and clothing; it has led to the development of new detergents. It has even played a role in improving the taste of chocolate and the safety of aircraft by looking at the crystal formations in chocolate and metal. Even the huge magnetic memory of the iPod is due to research carried out on the SRS.
