Extreme Conditions Research Day

Jan 09. till Jan 09.

Extreme Conditions Research Day

The meeting day forms part of developing a future high-pressure perspective and strategy for Diamond. The aim is to discuss ongoing high-pressure research projects, exchange current experiences of supporting high-pressure / temperature user experiments, and to outline future ambitions for extreme conditions research on individual beamlines as well as across different beamlines. Expectations and wishes for future research will feed into planning new developments (hardware & software) and improved centralisation of equipment across beamlines.
