The X-ray diffraction facility, under the supervision and care of Dr. Hadi Arman, offers the chemistry department with the means of single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis which is the most reliable route for ascertaining the structure of crystalline materials. The facility maintains a state of the art Rigaku diffractometer. This sealed tube system is equipped with a CCD area detector and can analyze samples at various temperatures. The facility also performs data processing, analysis and solution on samples. In addition to the diffractometer, the facility also has access to the electronic Cambridge Structural Database..
