Diamond Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory

Diamond Light Source building Diamond Light Source Ltd, Oxfordshire, UK.

Synchrotron radiation

  • to allow measurement of the highest possible resolution data
  • collect data from crystals too small to study by other methods (microfocus beamlines)
  • use of anomalous dispersion effects for phase determination (e.g. multiwavelength anomalous dispersion method, MAD)
