At 2.00am on Tuesday 30th May 2006 (Spring Bank Holiday Monday night shift!), Diamond's accelerator team achieved stored beam in the 561.6 metre Storage Ring, which in turn allowed the first observation of synchrotron light.
These graphs show the signal taken from the instrument (DCCT) that measures the average current circulating in the storage ring. It shows that more than 2 mA were circulating and that current was accumulated from several booster cycles.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
