Diamond is the UK's synchrotron facility.
Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron. It works like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines.
Diamond Light Source is a not-for-profit limited company funded as a joint venture between UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome Trust.
Diamond provides national science infrastructure that is free at the point of use. Primary facilities are the national Synchrotron along with Cryo electron microscopy at the Harwell Campus, all available to researchers through a competitive application process, provided that published results are in the public domain.
