Synchrotron based techniques have made a major impact in the field of environmental science in the last ten years. High resolution allows the study of ultra-dilute substances, the identification of species and the ability to track pollutants as they move through the environment. Diamond is playing an important role in monitoring and predicting the effects of human activities on local and global environments. This knowledge will enable the development of strategies to reduce our overall environmental impact.
To discuss possible environmental science experiments at Diamond, please contact the relevant beamline scientist or Andy Dent.
Potential industrial users should contact Elizabeth Shotton.
Listen to Diamond scientists and users talk about environmental applications in the Diamond podcast.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
