Diamond Light Source Ltd

Description Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron facility, located at the Harwell Science Campus in Oxfordshire. By accelerating electrons to near light-speed, Diamond generates brilliant beams of light from infra-red to X-rays which are used for academic and industry research. Diamond is a not-for-profit limited company funded as a joint venture by the UK Government through the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) - 86% funding - in partnership with the Wellcome Trust (14% funding). Diamond is free at point of access through a competitive application process (peer review), provided the results are published in the public domain. Diamond also has proprietary (fee paying) access for those who wish to guarantee access and keep their results confidential. Over 5000 researchers per annum use Diamond’s beamlines to conduct experiments in a wide range of disciplines including structural biology, health and medicine, solid-state physics, materials & magnetism, nanoscience, electronics, earth & environmental sciences, chemistry, cultural heritage, energy and engineering.
