MERLIN is designed to be a high intensity, medium energy resolution spectrometer. As such, it will complement the high-resolution MAPS spectrometer at ISIS. MERLIN will utilise all the latest advances in technology with a supermirror guide to enhance flux as well as 3m long position-sensitive detectors in a vacuum making it ideal for single-crystal users. The detector bank will cover a massive p steradians of solid angle with an angular range from 451 to +1351 degrees in the horizontal plane and 7301 degrees in the vertical plane. This will allow large swathes of Q,o space to be accessed in a single run. The instrument will be ready for commissioning in February 2006. This paper presents details of design and performance of this new instrument.
