Diamond High-Pressure Workshop

Feb 26. till Feb 27.

Diamond High-Pressure Workshop

The workshop aims to bring together high-pressure researchers with different experimental expertise. It highlights the latest developments in high-pressure techniques across beamlines such as laser-heated diamond-anvil cell diffraction on the Extreme Conditions beamline (I15), high-pressure EXAFS on I20, and first high-pressure diamond-anvil cell experiments on the Materials and magnetism beamline (I16).

Location
Diamond Light Source

Diamond supports high-pressure research on seven beamlines: I15 (Extreme Conditions), I16 (Materials and magnetism), I18 (Microfocus spectroscopy), I19 (Small molecule single-crystal diffraction), I20 (X-ray spectroscopy), I22 (Non-crystalline diffraction), and B22 (IR Microspectroscopy).

The objective of the workshop is to promote high-pressure research across beamlines sharing the information obtainable with specific experimental techniques and the benefits a multi-technical approach offers. Researchers who are new to the field of high-pressure synchrotron X-ray experiments and students will get a flavour of the possibilities a user facility offers.
