Business Networking Event at Diamond Light Source
Diamond Light Source, Harwell, Oxford
14 June 2012
MIA members and industry contacts have been invited to visit this revolutionary building. You will hear about the Diamond Light Source and how this could benefit them. There will also be the opportunity to tour the facilities and network with fellow delegates.
Diamond is a national scientific institute called a synchrotron light source. At the heart of such a facility is a particle accelerator where electrons travel close to the speed of light, emitting electromagnetic rays; X-rays, Ultraviolet and Infrared. These bright beams of light are used to study solids, liquids and gases to gain key information on their atomic and molecular composition.
In 2010, Diamond Light Source opened their new unique research station that creates molecular-scale 3D images of large scale objects for the manufacturing of aerospace and engineering components, to explore their structures in atomic-scale detail.
Engineers from Rolls-Royce have used this research facility, known as the Joint Engineering, Environmental Processing (JEEP) facility, to test innovative coatings for fan blades for their Trent 1000 engine.
