Submission Forms


It is encouraged that you contact the crystallographer prior to submitting a sample in order to discuss various  methods of crystallization and to ensure the quality of the crystalline sample. Additionally, the X-ray lab has access to several crystal structure databases including the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and Inorganic Crystal Database (ICD). This ensures the novelty of the samples mounted and is a useful research tool for planning research projects. In order to submit a  solid or a  liquidsample, a form must be filled out which summarizes important information regarding the synthesis and crystallization of the sample which aids the crystallographer in the correct handling of the sample and performing subsequent diffraction experiments.
