After a fast-paced expansion over the past four years, Ontario’s fastest growing personal injury firm now has a loftier goal in mind. As of May 1, Diamond and Diamond Lawyers will revolutionize the legal industry as a whole, providing reasonably priced access to justice for the masses. “It wasn’t always our goal to move to full service,” said managing lawyer, Jeremy Diamond. “We listened to what our customer base was demanding and we noticed that many were intimidated by corporate law firms and daunting retainers.” Dubbed “The People’s Law Firm” Diamond and Diamond are extending their service offering to include real estate purchase and sale, wills and estates, mortgage refinances, and uncontested divorce and separation agreements. These new services will be priced as a flat fee and provide a seamless legal transaction experience for any individual. Further details regarding pricing will be available on the Diamond and Diamond's homepage, as of today. “What has made us so successful in the personal injury space is our approachability,” said Jeremy Diamond. “We believe in access to justice for all our clients and we will continue to fight for them, regardless of which type of legal service they require.” In addition to the full service announcement, Diamond and Diamond has plans to move west, opening up their 13th office in Vancouver next month. -Family owned firm has grown from 1 office in Toronto to 13 locations in a mere 4 years and is Ontario's fastest growing Personal Injury Firm. -Winner of 7 readers choice awards, 3 Year Winner of the Consumer's Choice Award -Featured legal commentators on 20+ radio and television stations as well as print media -Sponsorships with Canada’s biggest sporting franchises (Toronto Raptors, Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Marlies, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Rock as well as OHL teams across Ontario) -2016 Leger Polling shows evidence of unparalleled brand awareness. Nearly 70% of GTA residents are aware of the firm with only 3% able to name a competitor of the firm.

With the increased brilliance of state-of-the-art synchrotron radiation sources and the advent of free-electron lasers (FELs) enabling revolutionary science with EUV to X-ray photons comes an urgent need for suitable photon imaging detectors. Requirements include high frame rates, very large dynamic range, single-photon sensitivity with low probability of false positives and (multi)-megapixels. At DESY, one ongoing development project-in collaboration with RAL/STFC, Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, Diamond, and Pohang Accelerator Laboratory-is the CMOS-based soft X-ray imager PERCIVAL. PERCIVAL is a monolithic active-pixel sensor back-thinned to access its primary energy range of 250 eV to 1 keV with target efficiencies above 90%. According to preliminary specifications, the roughly 10 cm × 10 cm, 3.5k × 3.7k monolithic sensor will operate at frame rates up to 120 Hz (commensurate with most FELs) and use multiple gains within 27 μm pixels to measure 1 to ∼ 100000 (500 eV) simultaneously arriving photons. DESY is also leading the development of the AGIPD, a high-speed detector based on hybrid pixel technology intended for use at the European XFEL. This system is being developed in collaboration with PSI, University of Hamburg, and University of Bonn. The AGIPD allows singlepulse imaging at 4.5 MHz frame rate into a 352-frame buffer, with a dynamic range allowing single-photon detection and detection of more than 10000 photons at 12.4 keV in the same image. Modules of 65k pixels each are configured to make up (multi)megapixel cameras. This review describes the AGIPD and the PERCIVAL concepts and systems, including some recent results and a summary of their current status. It also gives a short overview over other FEL-relevant developments where the Photon Science Detector Group at DESY is involved. © 2016 International Union of Crystallography.

Single shot emittance measurement is essential to assess the performance of new generation light sources such as linac based X-ray FELs or laser plasma wakefield accelerators. To this end, we have developed a single shot transverse emittance measurement using at least 4 screens inserted in the beam at the same time, measuring the beam size at different positions in a drift space in one shot. We present here test measurements performed at Diamond in the transfer line from the Booster to the Storage Ring, using thin OTR screens. Additionally, we compare these measurements with results from the more conventional quadrupole scan method. The validity and limits of the new method are also discussed.
