Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron facility. It is a third generation light source providing brilliant beams of light across the spectrum from far infrared to hard X-rays, covering a wide variety of synchrotron techniques. In the field of MX, Diamond currently provides five undulator beamlines: three high brilliance MAD beamlines, a fixed wavelength side-station and a microfocus MAD beamline. Further state of the art facilities under development include a dedicated long-wavelength native phasing beamline and a versatile in-situ screening and data collection beamline.
Next to Diamond, the Research Complex at Harwell is a multidisciplinary laboratory providing facilities for research teams from UK universities working at the interfaces between traditional disciplines. The RCaH is the home of the CCP4 core team, as well as the Oxford Protein Production Facility, researchers from the Membrane Protein Laboratory, and other groups working in MX.
The Harwell Oxford campus hosts both Diamond Light Source and the Research Complex at Harwell, as well as other facilities at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. It is located in the South Oxfordshire countryside, about 16 miles south of Oxford.
