The next Inside Diamond open day will feature an introduction to Diamond, a tour of the machine and a chance to meet and talk to our scientist and engineers. We expect the visit will last around two and a half hours.
There are events throughout the year and booking opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the event. Click here for more details.
Please find below a list of the Outline Science Cases for each Diamond-II flagship project available to download. These are proposals for either new beamlines, rebuilt beamlines or major upgrades of the existing instruments, as presented to SAC/DISCo in May 2020. These projects are currently being developed further with Diamond's user communities, and reaching out to new users and fields of research by engaging the community through webinars. User Working Groups led by external project champions are developing full business cases that will be presented to our advisory bodies in December 2020. Prof Laurent Chapon, Diamond-II Programme Director and Physical Sciences Director at Diamond outlines in this video the programme and timeline for the beamline selection process:
Users of the facility and the wider scientific community are encouraged to submit statements of support for one or more of the proposals they believe will most impact their research and their communities. These statements of support will be included in the final business case for each project. If you would like to support one or more of the proposals, please click the button below to complete the electronic form. You will need to submit a separate form for every project you are supporting.
Learn more about the unique opportunities, new beamlines, engineering developments and scientific progress that the Diamond-II will facilitate in the documents below. The Conceptual Design Report offers more details into the upgrade, whilst the Science Case highlights the key opportunities and changes that Diamond-II will bring to each of the scientific disciplines and techniques served by Diamond Light Source.
