Instrument Details


The X-ray lab houses a Bruker APEX II diffractometer with a Mo-Kα radiation (λ= 0.71073 Å) sealed tube source and a CCD area detector.  It is equipped with an Oxford Cryosystems cryometer allowing for routine data collection at temperatures as low as 100 K for both air stable and highly air sensitive inorganic, organic, and organometallic samples. In addition, the X-ray diffractometer is equipped with an OHCD Laser, which allows for the   In-Situ crystallization and consequent diffraction studies of pure liquid or low-melting compounds through the use of capillaries.
