Diamond Active Samples Active Beamline workshop
18th May 2015
Diamond Light Source
At the National Nuclear Users Forum (NNUF) Meeting in Leeds last year, there was a brief discussion of the results of the survey carried out by Melissa Denecke and Fred Mosselmans on the experiments people might want to undertake at Diamond upon active materials.
There will be a workshop at Diamond on the 18th May to enable that discussion to continue in order to reach a consensus over the necessary steps for the proper exploitation of Diamond by the nuclear science community. The Keynote speaker will be Steve Conradson, beamline responsible of the MARS beamline at Soleil, who will discuss that beamline’s set-up and science profile.
Workshop attendees will be given the opportunity to present the science they want to do at Diamond, discussing both the activity of the samples they want to study and the X-ray techniques necessary for them to answer their research questions.
Discussion will focus on two questions.
1) Whether there is a need for a dedicated active beamline at Diamond and
2) Which existing beamlines at Diamond could be upgraded to enable some of this science to take place safely.
