New materials analysis facility under construction at Diamond
From Labmate Online:
Johnson Matthey, Oxford University and Diamond Light Source have announced the creation of a state-of-the-art materials characterisation facility at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus (August 4). This world class site is close to both Oxford University and Johnson Matthey’s Sonning Common Research laboratories and is home to Diamond, the UK’s synchrotron science facility, where currently 24 experimental stations (beamlines) are operational with funding in place to increase this number to 33 by 2018.
Here’s our lovely student office at Diamond! All the offices here sit around the upper walkway that goes round the edge of the ring. It’s pretty cool working at your desk and having the expanse of the synchrotron’s experimental hall just outside the door. I share the office with 5 other students on placement this summer with beamlines in the surfaces and interfaces village.
