Paper Abstract

A dedicated optics and metrology team has been assembled at Diamond Light Source to take responsibility for designing, procuring and testing a wide range of state-of-the-art x-ray optics, providing the Diamond beamlines with effective solutions to condition and focus synchrotron light. Advanced efforts are underway to design and construct a cleanroom laboratory to house a suite of metrology instruments. This will complement the Test beamline, used for a wide range of tasks including x-ray optics and detector developments, and proof of principle experiments. In collaboration with industrial and academic partners, these experimental facilities will be used to measure and develop the next generation of x-ray optics, and help the Diamond beamlines to achieve world leading performance. Details of the planning and early construction phase of the Metrology laboratory are presented, and preliminary examples of x-ray metrology measurements and research programmes.
