Summary

Image Summary

We're celebrating the art of world changing science with Oxfordshire Artweeks!

In 2022 Diamond Light Source is celebrating its 20th anniversary and 15 years of research and innovation, and to help commemorate the occasion we are presenting a special exhibition of selected photographs from throughout Diamond.

From the 14th to the 22nd May, 2022, you can visit our outdoor photographic exhibit in honour of the special double anniversary year. Circumnavigating the "ring" of the synchrotron, these 79 images will give a behind-the-scenes insight into what goes on inside our iconic building.

We are the UK’s national synchrotron, working like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines. The machine accelerates electrons to near light speeds so that they give off light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. These bright beams are then directed off into laboratories known as ‘beamlines’. Here, scientists use the light to study a vast range of subject matter, from new medicines and treatments for disease to innovative engineering and cutting-edge technology. Whether it’s fragments of ancient paintings or unknown virus structures, at the synchrotron, scientists can study their samples using a machine that is 10,000 times more powerful than a traditional microscope.

This photo exhibition shines an artistic light on this research and innovation, showing some of the unique and special moments and sights of science on the cutting edge.

Diamond is one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world, and its pioneering capabilities are helping to keep the UK at the forefront of scientific research.
