Parker Group at Diamond


Parker Group work with a range of biological and non-biological systems including coccolithophores, bacteria and nanoplastics, using the microscopy and microbiology facilities at the Research Complex at Harwell to compliment their synchrotron-based research they undertake on the beamline I14. I14  is the hard x-ray nanoprobe at Diamond Light Source, offering X-ray fluorescence, diffraction and phase contrast imaging (ptychography and differential phase contrast imaging) at the nanometer scale. Research Complex provides the group with access to sample preparation and characterisation equipment to complement and enable research on the beamline.
