Diamond has developed a set of interactive simulations for teachers in conjunction with the Virtual Physical Laboratory to explain the physics of the machine, including electric fields, electromagnetic radiation and vacuum properties. Each simulation demonstrates how this knowledge is applied at Diamond and provides instructions and theoretical background information on each area.
To accompany these simulations are a series of worksheets for A-level students including extra information and example calculations.
Diamond Light Source has developed a set of Dialogue activities for use in the classroom or community.
These debates focus on the use of peer review and the criteria by which we judge science – how would you decide which experiments should be carried out?
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
