Abstract: Optimisation of the Diamond Light Source injector has continued since user operation started in January 2007. Beam losses have been minimised by injector tuning and stabilisation, and high level software has been developed to characterise booster and injection parameters. Operation in top-up and single bunch storage ring fill modes are reported, and low-energy linac fault-mode studies are detailed.
