X-ray Diffractometry (XRD)


X-ray Diffractometry (XRD)
AFC8 Saturn 70 single-crystal X-ray diffractometer

Single crystal X-ray diffractometer that uses an Oxford Cryo chilling system to cool down to 100K. We analyze crystals for researchers and staff at Memorial University of Newfoundland. We currently collect data only.

Single-crystal structure determination. Equipped with an X-Stream 2000 low temperature system and a SHINE optic. Access to the Cambridge Structural Database.
