Synchrotron Light Sources

Diamond is one of only a few facilities in the world to use the new experimental technique, Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS).

Due to the way antibodies are made, each person that is infected has the potential to produce many antibodies that target the virus in a slightly different way.
