I19 upgrade workshop

A one-day workshop aimed at the I19 user community

Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK

Event details

I19, the small-molecule single-crystal diffraction beamline, has been supporting user experiments for more than 3 years. There are 80 publications arising so far from work carried out on the beamline, with around 200 academic user visits supported and with an additional component of beamtime for industrial users. As the world-class research performed on the facility continues to evolve and place ever greater demands on its capability, it is crucial that there are simultaneous developments of the beamline instrumentation to ensure that it can both efficiently support and enhance the science program. The intention is to upgrade experiments hutch 1 with a view to maintaining, or increasing, the throughput of chemical crystallography while at the same time increasing the proportion of beamtime available in experiments hutch 2 for more complex experiments. The purpose of the workshop is to present and discuss options for the beamline upgrade, expected benefits and implications for the user schedule.

Members of the I19 user community were invited to attend this one-day workshop on 22nd May, that was held at Diamond. If you wished to attend you needed to register before 11th May. Places on the workshop were limited to 40. Refreshments were provided and the day began with coffee at 1030 followed by the start of the formal programme at 1100, the meeting wass expected to close at 1600.


Registration is now closed.
