Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

Single crystal X-ray diffractometry is used to determine atomic structures of crystalline substances.
Typical applications are in the structural elucidation of organic, organometallic and inorganic crystals, the determination of the absolute configuration (enantiomorphism), the determination of structure-function relationships as a function of temperature (e.g. magnetic materials), as well as more crystallographic problems such as stacking faults, twins, modulation and phase transitions (e.g. purely structural or coupled structural and magnetic/ferroelectric transitions).
