Diamond Light Source facility will be upgraded through a £500 million investment.

Diamond Light Source science facility in Oxfordshire will be upgraded through a £500 million investment.


Established in 2001 and opened in 2007, Diamond is a joint-venture between UKRI-STFC (86%) and the Wellcome Trust (14%).

The Diamond-II upgrade will take several years of planning and implementation. This will include a ‘dark period’ of 18 months with no synchrotron light for the user community, followed by a period to fully launch the new facility with three new flagship beamlines and major upgrades to many other beamlines.
