Date: Tuesday 18 March 2014
Venue: Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire
Diamond Light Source – University of Liverpool
On the 18th March 2014, Diamond Light Source (DLS), together with the University of Liverpool will hold a one-day workshop dedicated to material science research, with a particular view to promote the synchrotron based CD beamline B23 for these emerging chiroptical materials and interfaces. The event will be held at Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire.
The workshop is free to attend and includes refreshments and lunch, but registration is limited to 40 places. Successful registrants will be expected to reconfirm their place nearer the time in order to give those on a reserved list a chance to take up any cancellation places.

Venue: The Winchester Hotel, Winchester
On the 11th February 2013, the Diamond Light Source (DLS) together with the University of Southampton held a one-day workshop dedicated to nucleic acid research, with a particular view to promote the synchrotron based CD beamline B23 for bio-nanomaterials. The event was held at The Winchester Hotel in a historic city of Winchester, a convenient location well accessible using public transport.
The day included scientific lectures about bio-nanomaterials, use of CD spectroscopy in selected applications and other biophysical techniques, and an introduction to the B23 station from the beamline scientists. Part of the day was devoted to the advantages of B23 over bench-top instruments, specific experimental setup, possibilities and limitations, and to the peer reviewed beamtime proposal process. B23 is – like all other beamline stations at DLS – accessible to UK academics through the online proposal submission system, and the visits are fully supported by DLS.
Registration for this event is now closed.
This was the first event in a series of Road shows to highlight Diamond Light Source B23 throughout the country. If you are interested in participating in future events please please send an email to Rohanah Hussain.
