We would like to invite you to the final (for now!) instalment of our current webinar series, a Live Family Webinar ‘3D X-ray Vision!’ on Wednesday 24th June at 1:30pm. Everyone is welcome to tune in as this webinar is specifically aimed at a general audience and no previous knowledge is required. As always you will get the opportunity to ask our experts any questions you might have. You can catch up with our previous webinars on our website here.
**This week we will be finding out how Diamond’s light can be used to 3D image anything from bees' eyes to spinal cords, ancient seeds to prehistoric plankton, and knee joints to COVID19-affected lungs. Tune in on Monday as we explore how imaging techniques can be used to provide exceptional insights into the past, the present and the future.**
David and Amy from our Public Engagement team will be joined by Andrew Bodey, a scientist on our X-ray Imaging beamline I13, who will take us through how the beamline works and how it has been used to image a wide variety of samples from fields such as biology, materials science, geology, medicine, archaeology and engineering. Andrew will then answer your questions, and David and Amy will be on hand to answer any questions you have about Diamond in general.
Tune in on Wednesday via Zoom (please note: questions will be submitted via the ‘Q & A’ function and all attendees will be automatically muted on joining).
