Diamond Light Source - harnessing the power of 10 billion suns
by Professor Andrew Harrison
When Diamond Light Source was switched on in 2007, it produced the brightest continuous source of light in the solar system. This talk by CEO of Diamond, will illustrate how that light is sued by over 5,000 visiting scientists every year in the search for new materials from jet engines to batteries, how it underpins the development of new drugs or treatments for diseases, tells us about the composition of comets and helps conservationists preserve ancient treasures such as the Mary Rose.
