Abstract: In synchrotron light sources correction of the linear coupling is an important issue related to the brightness of the photon beam and to the beam lifetime. The vertical emittance of the electron beam in the DIAMOND storage ring can be controlled using 168 skew quadrupoles embedded in the sextupoles of the ring. In this paper we report the linear coupling estimates for the expected misalignment errors and the results of coupling correction based on the analysis of the cross response matrix. Touschek lifetime estimates are also discussed.
