Abstract: Diamond is a third generation light source under commissioning in Oxfordshire UK. In view of the increasing interest in the production of short radiation pulses, we have investigated the possibility to operate with a low-alpha optics, the use of a third harmonic cavity for bunch shortening and the implementation of a crab cavity scheme in the Diamond storage ring. The results of the initial accelerator studies will be described, including the modification of the beam optics, non-linear beam dynamics optimisation and choice of RF parameters for the crab cavity operation. The expected performance of these schemes will be summarised.
