X-ray Diffraction Facility

The School has several modern X-ray diffractometers used for both chemical crystallography and macromolecular crystallography.  It also houses specialist equipment built for the study of incommensurate diffraction.  All diffractometers have Oxford Cryostream dry nitrogen cooling apparatus incorporated. The diffractometers are housed in a large purpose built laboratory with climate control and are currently run and maintained by two full time experienced crystallographers. 

The three most productive diffractometers are listed on the right hand side.
