Diamond is taking part in this year's Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition, showcasing the accelerator physics behind the facility and the outputs of an innovative science and art initiative.
The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition presents interactive exhibits about cutting edge scientific research taking place in the UK, manned by the scientists and engineers who are doing this research. The exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to meet the researchers themselves, talk with them about their work and ask any questions they may have.
Diamond will be there throughout the week with a presence on two exhibits:
Designs for Life
A selection of the textile panels will be on display and visitors will have an opportunity to take on the resposibility of a peer review panel to discuss and debate which areas of science should be prioritised.
Researchers from several institutions, including Diamond, will be on hand to talk about their investigations into how to improve and optimise performance of particle accelerators.
Public opening times
The Exhibition takes place at the Royal Society in London at:
6-9 Carlton House Terrace
