EC3: Control systems for the Diamond Light Source (Postponed)

Austen Rose, Diamond Light Source Ltd

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.

We will discuss the science and the scientific techniques employed at Diamond and the control systems required to support the machine and the beamlines.
