We are equipped with a state-of-the-art Rigaku Technologies SuperNova single crystal X-ray diffractometer with Cu microfocus X-ray source and an HyPix 3000 detector. The system is complemented by an Oxford Cryosystems Cryostream (Cobra plus) such that we are able to collect data at temperatures as low as 80 K and high as 500 K. We are able to perform structural characterisation on a wide range of samples, including those with larger unit cells and materials that produce smaller, more weakly diffracting crystals.

Services we can offer
