Now in its third phase of construction, Diamond currently has 25 beamlines in operation, with a further eight due for completion by 2018. The selection process for beamlines and experimental stations takes into account many different aspects such as scientific potential, size and strength of UK user communities, technical novelty and feasibility, and potential of industrial applications. In Phase III, the focus was to fill gaps in methods still not provided for, and to identify areas where advances beyond what is already in place at Diamond, and at other synchrotron facilities worldwide, might be possible.
The beamlines are organised into villages as described below.

Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
