Description

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.

The machine accelerates electrons to near light speeds so that they give off light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. These bright beams are then directed off into laboratories known as ‘beamlines’. Here, scientists use the light to study a vast range of subject matter, from new medicines and treatments for disease to innovative engineering and cutting-edge technology.

This event is an engineering tour of the facility followed by a lecture on its operation.

Please arrive at 18:15 for a 18:30 start.

The tour will last for one hour followed by a 30 minute talk.

Please note that Photo I.D will be required for security reasons.

When arriving please report to R75 Reception for Parking and further details.
