Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility located in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. Its purpose is to produce intense beams of light whose special characteristics are useful in many areas of scientific research. In particular it can be used to investigate the structure and properties of a wide range of materials from proteins (to provide information for designing new and better drugs), and engineering components (such as a fan blade from an aero-engine) to conservation of archeological artfacts (for example Henry VIII’s flagship the Mary Rose). The facility’s name is abbreviated to Diamond throughout this article.
