The Medium Energy Ion Scattering facility at the Daresbury Laboratory, one of only afew such facilities in the world, has served the UK community since 1996. It provided a50-400 keV ion beam and a very comprehensive experimental station where samples could bestudied and the energies and angles of the scattered ions measured. It has now closed, butwill be be relocated some 50 miles to the University of Huddersfield: it will berecommissioned and should be available to users by the end of 2012. We report on progress,and on the facilities which will be available for users at the new site and under the newmanagement.
