X-Ray Crystallography

Data collection, structure analysis, and crystallography consultation services.

The X-Ray Crystallography Facility provides services and resources related to X-ray analysis such as single crystal structure analysis for organic, inorganic, metal organic and hybrid materials (indexing, unit cell and structure determinations, absolute structure), powder and multicrystalline X-R-ray diffraction (phase ID, Rietveld analysis, high temperature measurements, thin film measurements, X-ray reflectivity) and also X-ray fluorescence analysis.
