A large-area, latest-generation detector for X-ray structure determination

Research Infrastructure


Scattering of X-rays of crystalline phases is the most direct and most applicable technique for establishing the exact atomic geometry of chemical compounds. The most central societal questions concerning energy, climate change, health and sustainability, all have important components of material development. This entails structure elucidation by single-crystal diffraction for e.g. battery technology, solar cells, catalytic converters, medicine, as well as for future technologies involving superconductivity and quantum information processing. The project encompasses installation of a state-of-the-art detector for sing-crystal structure determination. This will broaden the range of users of this technique and the range of crystalline systems which can studied.
