Diamond-II Workshops

At Diamond Light Source we are busy preparing an upgrade to the synchrotron, its beamlines and infrastructure, known as Diamond-II. In May 2018, Diamond’s management presented an outline science case for Diamond-II to its Science Advisory Committee (SAC) and received strong endorsement for the new machine design and the opportunities it offers.

It is important that we now directly engage with our academic and industrial user communities in order to explore how Diamond-II will best support research and innovation. To this end, we are hosting a series of scientific workshops in September. The workshops are co-organised by the Diamond Science Group Leaders and the Diamond User Committee (DUC) representatives and aim to discuss the science drivers, gather the requirements and ideas from our users.

These strategic workshops are aimed at experienced synchrotron users and will include open discussions where participants will be required to contribute. If you would like to take part, please register to attend an event via the links below. Spaces are limited; registrations will close a week in advance.
 

Diamond-II: Crystallography

Benefits & opportunities of the Diamond upgrade for Crystallography Science

The aims of this workshop are to introduce Diamond-II, to discuss its potential benefits for the existing facilities (I11, I15, I15-1 and I19), and to develop the science case for the machine upgrade and a new multi-length scale beamline.
