Oxford Instruments


Oxford Instruments NanoScience designs, manufactures and supplies market-leading research tools that enable quantum technologies, new materials and device development in the physical sciences. Our tools are used for creating high performance, cryogen free low temperature and magnetic environments, based upon our core technologies in low and ultra-low temperatures, high magnetic fields and system integration.


British Cryogenics Council

The British Cryogenics Council was founded fifty years ago to promote knowledge and interest in Cryogenics. Our corporate membership is over 100 strong with a broad spectrum of expertise, from companies providing cryogenic products and services to universities undertaking low temperature research to end-users of cryogens and cryogenic systems. We share information via our website, newsletters, LinkedIn forum and by supporting the networking activities of the British Cryogenics Cluster and CryoUsers (a bi-annual forum for technicians and engineers working with helium liquefaction and cryogenics).

Individual membership currently costs only £10 per year and members have access to our quarterly newsletter, the new edition of our Safety Manual and subsidised prices to attend BCC-sponsored workshops and training courses.


Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity

Oxford has a long tradition of pursuing the exciting world of superconductivity and our Centre reflects the direct engagement between research and industry to prepare the technological and fundamental advances of the future. Our Superconductivity Hub is a joint project between the Materials Department and the Physics Department of the University of Oxford and the local industrial partners and research centres with interests in future applications of superconducting materials. Our Centre aims to pursue projects that can lead to future technologies and lead to the discovery of novel superconducting materials.
