What two factors do macromolec-ular crystallography microfocus spectroscopy, non-crystalline diffraction, high resolution pow-der diffraction and surface inter-face structural analysis have in common? Each has dedicated Diamond beamlines, and each needs ultra pure water
The Client's Needs
Diamond Light Source, the synchrotron complex on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, produces x-ray, infrared and ultra-violet beams of exceptional brightness. These highly focused beams of light are enabling scientists and engineers to probe deep into the basic structure of matter and materials, answering fundamental questions about everything from the building blocks of life to the origin of our planet. When Diamond opened in 2007, seven cutting edge experimental stations, called ‘beamlines’ were operational. Four more are now operational, with an additional 11 in various stages of construction and optimisation, bringing the total of operational beamlines to 22 by 2012.
