The expertise of the scientific team at Diamond presents an invaluable resource for scientists visiting the facility. From probing membrane proteins to modelling conditions in the early solar system, our scientists continue active research programmes across a wide range of applications.
Diamond offers a unique environment for its scientific users, in which interactions within and between disciplines are fostered. Here we highlight areas of shared interest between users and Diamond scientists, to initiate collaborations which take advantage of the unique opportunities provided here.
To support the extensive research programme at Diamond, the beamlines and integrated facilities are organised into eight groups, fostering relations between user communities with shared research interests and requirements. These communities encourage collaboration and knowledge exchange through shared facilities, seminar programmes and other activities.
These eight groups are:
Macromolecular Crystallography (MX)
Soft Condensed Matter
Imaging and Microscopy
Structures and Surfaces
