The Crystallography Science Group comprises beamlines I11, I15, I15-1, and I19, members of the former Engineering & Environment and the Materials Villages. The reorganisation of the beamlines into Science Groups will enhance the collaboration across Diamond. Furthermore, the technical and scientific expertise within the Crystallography Science Group can be fully exploited to provide the basis for future development and pioneering experiments.
The Crystallography Science Group beamlines employ various X-ray scattering and diffraction techniques to study structural properties of crystalline, amorphous, and liquid materials at ambient and different nonambient conditions. These powerful facilities are used for a wide range of science disciplines, from Condensed Matter Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Earth and Materials to Life Sciences. Important research fields cover in situ studies of batteries, synthesis of new materials as well as structural studies at extreme temperature and/or pressure conditions. The high demand and productivity of the beamlines are reflected by the output of about 150 publications in 2017.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
