Abstract: We present the design of a synchrotron x-ray beamline (BL-I11) dedicated to powder diffraction experiments, currently under construction at Diamond Light Source (DLS). An in-vaCLIurn Lindulator will provide an intense and highly collimated x-ray Source and with the necessary optics, a high purity beam of low energy-bandpass x-rays in the range 5-30 keV will be delivered at the sample. The diffraction instrument is designed to have the flexibility to house a variety of sample environments and to have two detection systems to collect high quality diffraction data, i.e. multi-analysing crystals for high angular resolution experiments and a fast position sensitive detector for tirne-resolved studies. BL-I11 will be a powerful state-of-the-art dedicated user facility for high resolution (d-space and time) powder diffraction studies of polycrystalline materials under ambient and non-ambient conditions.
