Fourth generation light sources operate with low emittance to provide more brilliant beams for user experiments. These machines have set the bar for non-invasive transverse beam size measurement on the micron and sub-micron scales. It has been identified within the community that this spatial resolution is at the limit of most diagnostic instrumentation, and systems which more closely resemble dedicated X-ray beamlines may be necessary. Here we describe the small-scale X-ray diagnostics beamline being developed at Diamond Light Source, with an emphasis on investigating X-ray imaging and interferometry.
