Cherenkov-Diffraction Radiation (ChDR), appearingwhen a charged particle moves in the vicinity of a dielectricmedium with speed faster than the speed of light inside themedium, is a phenomenon that can be exploited for a rangeof non-invasive beam diagnostics. By using dielectric radia-tors that emit photons when in proximity to charged particlebeams, one can design devices to measure beam propertiessuch as position, direction and size. The Booster To Storage-ring (BTS) test stand at Diamond Light Source provides a 3GeV electron beam for diagnostics research. A new vesselstring has been installed to allow the BTS test stand to beused to study ChDR diagnostics applicable for both hadronand electron accelerators. This paper will discuss the com-missioning of the BTS test stand, as well as exploring theinitial results obtained from the ChDR monitor.
