X-Ray Crystallography

Data collection, structure analysis, and crystallography consultation services.

The X-Ray Crystallography Facility provides services and resources related to X-ray diffraction analysis of crystalline materials 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 XRD (phase ID, Rietveld analysis, high temperature measurements, thin film measurements, X-ray reflectivity) as well as, starting Fall 2019, also X-ray fluorescence analysis.
