Diamond is one of the world's leading synchrotrons, providing its industrial and academic user communities with access to state-of-the-art analytical tools.
The resulting knowledge has wideranging impacts - scientific, economic, cultural and societal. The many high impact peer-review publications we deliver attest to our scientific excellence. Equally important is the breadth and depth of engagement with industry and the resulting translation into economic impact, evidenced by over 125 companies paying for proprietorial access and an increasing number of companies engaging through partnerships with the many university groups who access Diamond. As we look to the future, the key challenge ahead will be to secure the investments in the facility that will ensure our continuing international leadership position. The Diamond Board will continue to use its influence to ensure that we maintain and enhance our leading global reputation.
