Abstract: Diamond is a 3GeV, 3rd Generation Synchrotron Light Source currently under construction on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Chilton, Oxfordshire. This paper describes the three different types of Front end that have been designed to transmit the intense synchrotron radiation generated by the Undulator, Multi- Pole Wiggler and Bending Magnet sources in the Diamond storage ring to the experiments. The functions of the main components and their location in the layout are described. The Finite Element Analysis (FEA) that has been carried out to verify the performance under the high heat loads generated by Diamond is also described along with the limits on temperature and stress that have been employed in the design.
