Short Description

The four-circle single crystal diffractometer in Kappa geometry is mainly used for the measurement of single crystal diffraction data sets for the determination and/or refinement of atomic structural models. It is equipped with a CDD detector and runs routinely with Mo X-ray radiation. The samples can be cooled down to liquid nitrogen temperature. The samples can be cooled down to liquid nitrogen temperatur.

Research Services

The X-ray center of the TU Wien (XRC) offers services for X-ray diffraction measurements and analysis of single crystal diffraction data sets mainly for institutes and employees of the TU Wien, respectively. Instituts outside the TU Wien can place an order for analysis within research cooperations with the XRC. On a limited scale also orders from a third part can be accepted.
