01.02.2021 | New X-ray diffraction service center provides insight into the inner structure of compounds
The X-ray Diffraction Service Center is well equipped. Two single crystal diffractometers allow structure evaluation of solid-state and molecular crystals. With the four powder diffractometers of the service center, crystalline powder samples can be investigated. Using special measuring devices, it is also possible to study air-sensitive samples, samples up to 1200 °C, and samples under different gas atmospheres during the reaction. The establishment of the X-ray diffraction service center is a joint initiative of Inorganic Chemistry and Saarland University, which - with financial support from the state and federal governments - is intended to benefit regional industrial companies in addition to use in research and teaching. Dr. Bernd Morgenstern (single crystal diffraction) and Dr. Oliver Janka (powder diffraction) are responsible for the scientific supervision of the equipment and user requests. Press release.
