About Us

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s synchrotron science facility; it speeds up electrons to near light speeds so that they give off a 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.

Press Briefing

Diamond produces a newsletter for journalists twice a year to keep our contacts informed on science news and features from the UK’s synchrotron. Subscribe below.
