The Soft Condensed Matter (SCM) Group provides the infrared (IR) and Circular Dichroism (CD) microspectroscopy and both Small and Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS and WAXS) capabilities of Diamond. The group comprises of four beamlines: High Throughput SAXS (B21), the Multimode Infrared Imaging And Microspectroscopy (MIRIAM) beamline (B22), SAXS and Diffraction (I22) and the CD beamline (B23). This unique portfolio of beamlines can analyse a range of samples that include two-dimensional thin films (photovoltaics), living mammalian cells, three-dimensional matrices (e.g. metal-organic frameworks, gels and waxes) and nano-particles in non-crystalline states.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
