About Diamond Light Source

(c) Diamond Light Source Limited

Diamond Light Source is the largest UK science project for 30 years. The new synchrotron facility is under construction in South Oxfordshire, and scheduled to open in early 2007. This 21st century machine can be described as a series of 'super microscopes', which will be housed in a 235m diameter doughnut-shaped building (left).

Eventually Diamond could provide as many as 40 different scientific experimental stations. A key goal of Diamond is to become a leading UK research base with a unique culture that cross-fertilises ideas from different fields of science.

For current information on the facility please visit the Diamond Light Ltd. website.
