Strain at Diamond Light Showcase

Harwell (Rutherford Appleton Lab/Diamond Light)
Oct 2015

The 2015 showcase, 'Strain at Diamond Light - The UK's National Synchrotron and Neutron Facility' included three keynotes presentations with a focus on applications of synchrotron X-rays and neutrons and a tour of the Diamond Light Source, ISIS.


Residual stress measurements for aerospace structural integrity

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. By accelerating electrons to near light-speed, Diamond generates brilliant beams of light from infra-red to X-rays which are used for academic and industry research and development across a range of scientific disciplines including structural biology, physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, earth and environmental sciences.

ISIS is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford in the United Kingdom. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments allow the properties of materials to be understood at the scale of atoms. We support a national and international community of more than 2000 scientists for research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology, materials engineering and IT.
