Diamond-II Workshop: Crystallography

Sep 03. till Sep 04.

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.
